    Summary

    "This isn't a concentration camp," Delta says, calm, like he's been rehearsing it. Erik looks at the gun on his hip, the guards behind him in the corridor, the bars between them.

    He smiles with a lot of teeth. "I think I'd know that better than you."

    AU in which the beach divorce didn't happen and Erik decides to stay and help Charles start his school. But despite their clean break, the government isn't ready to let the mutants disappear into hiding.

    Summary

    This is a story of boy meets boy. The boy, Erik Lehnsherr, believes that his marching band is the shite. The other boy, Charles Xavier, shares this belief, but without the three-letter article.

    Erik meets Charles in November. He knows almost immediately he is an utter bastard who deserves a fist to the face. And, maybe, also who he has (not) been searching for.

    --

    “Raven's told me a lot about you. You've always been rich. Spoiled and privileged. You have a trust fund the size of most people's lifetime earnings, and you never have to lift a finger to survive.”

    “I – I don't see how this is related to the topic at hand,” Charles says, hating how uncertain his voice sounds.

    “Oh,” Erik whispers, his breath warm against Charles' lips. “It's related all right.”

    Summary

    Charles Xavier lost more than his leg in the war with Napoleon, and the man he's just pulled out of the water has ghosts of his own -- especially when Charles's involuntary projected hallucinations prove catching. Raven, meanwhile, faces the choice of whether to marry respectably or run away with a carnival fortune-teller.
