    Summary

    Casablanca-ish AU.
    Charles Xavier meets Erik Lehnsherr in Paris, 1937. They spend the next two years with one another, stupid in-love, until war comes heavy in September 1939. Erik leaves for Poland and the Resistance movement there, promising to return. Charles is left in Paris, where Nazi jackboots march in, Summer of 1940. He becomes a member of the underground French Resistance, publishing illegal newsletters, leaflets, until news comes through in February 1942: Erik is dead. Charles throws himself into more dangerous work, meeting with Communists, helping derail a German train, and he does too much, goes too far. His friends find him safe passage out of France, out across the Mediterranean, to Morocco, Casablanca. It is here he finds Erik, alive.

    Summary

    Victor, Yuuri thinks, has a face made for kissing.

    It’s the little moments: the times when Victor licks cream off his fingers, opting to send Yuuri a saucy wink rather than save the rest of his frozen treat even as it continues to melt and drip onto the pavement. It’s when he allows Yuuri’s mother to ramble on and on in a language he hardly understands, nodding intently as though he’s hanging on every word. It’s when he holds a hand to the small of Yuuri’s back and just… lets it stay there.

    Yuuri would like to be like that: a hand forgotten, allowed to just be.

    Then, perhaps, he wouldn’t be so terrified of the end.

    (Or: In which all Yuuri wants to do is kiss Victor, but the universe itself stands in the way.)
