    Summary

    The trouble with Charles Xavier isn’t just that he teaches genetics and holds terrible views about mutant rights—it’s also becoming increasingly clear that everyone but Erik seems to love him.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    AU where Erik is a political science professor attempting to start a mutant pilot program at his university, and Charles is the new genetics professor who takes part. An intensely real, vivid world, from overflowing tables in Queens during the High Holidays to the sweltering heat of a college town without college kids in August. Erik hatereads mutantphobic articles and sets his "just wait until I have tenure" mantra to music. Enemies to lovers, but both Charles and Erik are so much more than what they mean to each other.

    Summary

    On a February afternoon in 1962, Raven told Erik that the best way to apologize to Charles is to write him a letter. Three decades later, her words still find truth.

    Or, the story of Cherik, as told through letters.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    52 apologies from Erik to Charles over the course of their relationship. Epistolary, an at time gutting and at times uplifting take on canon events. More canon than canon.

    Summary

    “Alexander Hamilton! I’m at your service, sir!”

    Aaron looks at the hand and doesn’t take it. His hands are safely in his pocket, but he’d taken off his gloves, and he is not particularly in the mood to feel the single most consequential juncture of a stranger’s life.

    Alexander is still grinning at him, and the moment is stretching on, and he refuses to put his hand down, and Aaron has about half a second before this staring contest verges beyond the mere impolite and into the territory of heavy, awkward weight and scattered excuses—and before he can think better of it, Aaron takes Alexander’s hand.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    FAVE. AU where Aaron Burr is a seer: he sees the deaths of the people he touches, and he is sent through time to relive his life, with full memories, when he dies. This is the story of his desperate Groundhog Day-esque attempt to keep himself from killing Alexander Hamilton. Abandoned.

    Warnings: slaveholding characters, major character death.

    Summary

    In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).

    [from: Lynn E. Anderson, Captain America: Behind the Mask. Steve Rogers and the Contemporary Hero Narrative (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), p. 242.]

    In the aftermath of Steve's return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.

    Post-"Marshal on Mars," Croach and Red have a family, and Sparks joins in almost by default. Literally the perfect dynamic for this entire fandom.
