Everything’s in alphabetical order, completed, and has a happy ending because sad endings are a no no. I was joking about it being badass; everything is generally happy. I hate sad fics.


But please do note that even though I said they’re generally happy, some will make your heart clench a bit, but in a really good way and the ending’s always happy!

This is my Ao3 if anybody is interested and all these are bookmarked there along with a few other stories I have yet to read. Also PM me if there’s anything you want to point out about this list.

* - Really recommend
** - Highly, highly recommend/I’ve read this more than once
crossed out - Shit I have to say about these fics

Chapter Stories

*Charles Xavier’s A+ Guide to Management (or, How to Completely Destroy Your Life Without Even Trying) by fro_baby

In which Charles and Erik run a newspaper, wrangle interns, outrun the feds, outwit multinational crime lord, get royally fucked over (twice), eat prawns, argue over comma errors, dodge (and fail to dodge) airborne projectiles, make many snarky remarks, drive around in the desert, fight, make up, fight again, and slowly (but surely) fall in love.

This may not sound like your kind of story but no matter your type you must read this.

*come as you are by scarlettblush

Hospital AU. The one where Charles unknowingly woos a coma patient with Pride and Prejudice. Years later, they meet again.

The Courtship by dvs

A story about a courtship that began five hundred years ago.

A Curious Carriage of Crystal and Cold by etharei

Charles, a miner from a poor village in the countryside, saves the life of Erik Lehnsherr, scion of a successful business family and the richest man on the planet Eisen. Charles is a telepath and somewhat anxious about it, while Erik abstains from relationships because the lights flicker and doors open and electronics vibrate when he gets too excited.

Also featuring a long-suffering sister, a foul-mouthed bodyguard, and a best friend with a heart that is definitely not gold.

In which there are princes, spaceships, long journeys, and old secrets uncovered. (An AU sci-fi fairytale)

This was thrown in for good measure, I haven’t finished it.

**If You Liked The Book, You’ll Hate The Movie by paperclipbitch

Modern-Day High School AU. It’s not until Hank realises half the class are glancing towards the back of the classroom with something like nerves and something like schadenfreude that he finds out Alex Summers is back.

*in the moonlight, on a joy ride by scarlettblush

Librarian AU. Charles is the young librarian and Erik is the college student who is completely besotted with him.

This is really good, I actually liked Shaw.

In The Punch Line by zamwessell (greencarnation)

Basically, Charles Xavier needs a date to his tenth high school reunion. Enter Erik Lehnsherr, Raven’s best friend, who happens to be a model and the new face of Calvin Klein.

**Lean On Me by SpiritsFlame

Ten years ago, Charles and Erik split up, dividing their six kids between them. None of them expect them to meet at summer camp. And no one could have predicted the results.

I’ve read this over four times. So. Good.

Let’s Go To Prison by mykkila09

Charles wouldn’t last one day in prison with the mouth on him. He leaned against the wall of their tiny cell. “I’m going to die, aren’t I?” he muttered to himself.

"No Charles," Erik said, coming closer, "I won’t let that happen to you," he trapped the smaller man against the wall with his hand and smiled predatorily at him, leaning in even closer. "I’ll offer you my protection," he trailed a finger down Charles’ face, "but you’ll have to give me something in return."

"Okay," Charles said on a whisper, closing his eyes and feeling as the other man brushed his nose past his cheek, almost as if he were smelling Charles—taking in his scent perhaps. A low moan came from the taller man, a rumbling from his throat, and Charles gasped slightly.

He just made a deal with the devil, didn’t he?

Not as serious or scary as it sounds, or how the tags make it sound, honest. It’s mainly humour and it’s actually adorable. Pretty much a black comedy?

**Made To Be Broken by Yahtzee

Charles makes a New Year’s Resolution:

“No more straight men,” Charles repeated as he began scrolling through the apartment directory for Emma’s name. “No more futility. No more pointless hoping and heartbreak. In 2013, I never want to hear the words ‘exception,’ ‘experimenting’ or ‘phase.’ If, God forbid, I hear ‘bicurious’ even once, I may take a hostage.”

Then he goes into the party, and Erik is there.

I’ve read this over and over again.

My Barbaric Darling by baehj2915

Erik is revivified caveman. Charles is the anthropologist(?) taking care of him. This is as ridiculous as it sounds. Romcom misunderstandings and prehistoric wooing ensues.

Our House, In The Middle Of The Street by clocks

Charles is a social worker who fosters troubled kids, and one day he meets Erik, an ex-convict, who reluctantly agrees to stay for only a while, but ends up staying for good and helping Charles to raise the kids. Awkward parenting ensues.

There’s a reason why this is the second most popular Cherik fic on Ao3.

Paper Monsters by clocks

Charles meets Erik Lehnsherr, his favorite novelist of all time at a coffee shop, but doesn’t know it’s him, and Erik just criticizes his own writing in front of his biggest fan.

Same author as above. Just as awesome.

**Shop Space by caradee

Charles and Erik break up but still meet at their favorite coffee shop and manage a completely friendly relationship. The kids who work the coffee shop don’t understand it, Charles’ overprotective twin brother doesn’t understand it, and even Charles doesn’t understand it. Then, Erik shows up with a new date, someone who seems to be everything that Charles is not.

How will the Professor handle the surprising heartbreak that comes seeing Erik with someone else?

I’ve read this over and over again.

*Space Jam by pangea

Prince Charles Xavier is Deputy Commander of the TEF Heartsteel and the newest mission they’ve been assigned starts out less than desirable and quickly goes downhill from there. It’s alright, though, he’ll cope.

It doesn’t help, though, that he’s in unrequited love with his best friend and Commander of the Heartsteel, War-Prince Erik Lehnsherr.

Even if you don’t like sci-fi this is a really good story and was very fun to read.

Long one-shots

Despicably Yours by Cesare, veryorangecat

Erik Lehnsherr, AKA Magneto, is a supervillain without equal… except maybe one: Charles Xavier, AKA Professor X, AKA Erik’s next door neighbor. When their competition heats up, Erik decides the only way to get ahead is to adopt four mutant orphans to infiltrate Charles’s mansion.

Things don’t go as planned.

This is a fusion of X-Men: First Class with the adorable animated film Despicable Me, but should comfortably stand alone!

Does not have enough recognition. And the art just fits in so perfectly and it’s just as adorable as the fic itself!

**Doing Something for Yourself by Pookaseraph

Erik is a hard working engineer and single dad, Charles runs a local Community Center where Wanda and Pietro spend their time after school. Erik accidentally makes Charles’ acquaintance one Wednesday evening when he’s running late from work. Erik has no idea if he stands a chance with his new acquaintance, but that isn’t going to keep him from falling for the guy.

One of my favourite kidfics.

Drifting Apart Without You by Krasimer

Erik Lehnsherr has been apartment hunting, trying to find that one amazing place. He needs it to be furnished, well lit, with a good view as an added bonus.

He does find a place. Too bad that it’s already got a tenant.

A ghost by the name of Charles.

So good. Honestly, it deserved more hits and comments and kudos and whatnot.

**Finally Moving by zarah5

In which Erik is the son of servants, Charles is the son of aristocrats, and hedgehogs make repeated appearances. — Modern AU that is clearly inspired by Atonement (minus most of the angst, that is).

Barely any angst. I personally don’t think it’s anything like Atonement except maybe for the library sex??

**First Impressions by sirona

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a spouse — or the nearest set of curtains to hide behind, if you were to believe Mr Charles Xavier. Little does he know that he himself will soon put test to that very truth.

A must read for me, but I am slightly biased as I’m a huge Austen fan and P&P is probably my favourite Austen novel.

**Humane Society by smilebackwards

Once Erik finally allows himself to decide that Charles is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread, he spends the next week being incredibly bitter that he’s Charles’ cat and not his boyfriend.

I’ve read this so many times it’s just so adorable.

**Not So Much the Teacup by thehoyden

“Charles is basically the bride whisperer. It’s like he can read their minds.” (wedding planner AU)

Guys, just don’t think and read it. Do it!

**write this number down (you can call it anytime) by pocky_slash

When Erik upsets his children, they have a habit of running away from home—and straight to Charles’ school for cookies and consolation. Charles doesn’t mind the visitors, but as they appear more and more frequently, he realizes that sooner or later, he and Erik are going to have to talk about what happened on the beach and what it means for their future and the future of Erik’s children.

One of the best kidfics in my opinion.

you follow and i’ll lead by pearl_o, pocky_slash

When Charles discovers how frustrated and self-conscious his best friend Erik is about his ignorance about sex, he’s eager to volunteer to help teach him and practice. Charles might not have any more direct experience than Erik, but he does have a telepath’s mind full of accidentally picked-up fantasies and memories, as well as knowledge of a few dirty books - and more importantly, he’s been madly in love with Erik for years. This seems like a brilliant, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that he can’t pass up.

Now he just needs to manage to keep his feelings in check, and not ruin their friendship forever.

*Zweiundachtzig by Dow

Modern AU. Erik M. Lehnsherr is a private man, a jeweler that’s just looking for a studio to work in. But floorspace in New York is limited, so he ends up sharing a space with a beautiful mutant painter named Raven. Above them is a huge furry blue physicist, i.e. Mad scientist, and a glassblower that breaks half of what he makes when he starts laughing.

Drawn into their intricacies, Erik finds himself not only with friends but something that’s starting to frighteningly resemble a family. Then enter one, Charles Xavier; geneticist, lecturer, telepath, and mutant rights activist. Suddenly Erik is faced with dealing with a past he’s trying to forget and feelings he’s never had before.


**5 Ways Logan Fixed Everything (Like a Boss) by Starlingthefool

What would have happened if Charles and Erik had managed to recruit Logan?

(In which Logan solves everyone’s problems through snark and BAMFery.)

Best fix it ever. I love this story and I’m not a big fan of fix its.

*Axis On A Tilt by Clocks

In which Erik takes long motorcycle rides and tries to pretend he is not in love with his best friend, who is getting married.

Yes, yes, yes.

*Colleagues by darjeelingsecondflush

Q and James watch with amusement the awkward mutual seduction of consulting Dr. Charles Xavier and agent 004 Erik Lehnsherr of MI6.

Holy shit, I love this crossover.

Diamagnetism by cherryfeather

Erik ran a hand through his hair bemusedly, walking back across the lawn. He’d find the look of mildly crazed confusion on Charles’s face hilarious if what he’d just done weren’t so much more important. “It was like I threw myself away from Alex—and then before I hit the ground, I caught myself. I was hovering.”

Charles groaned in disbelief, burying his face in his hands and resting his elbows on the window casement.

"Stop that."

Erik discovers a new power during a training accident. Charles is really only mildly hysterical, honestly.

Fluff thrown in for good measure.

Feline Persuasion by Unforgotten

When Charles looks down at his wristwatch and realizes he’s been going on about catnip brands for at least ten minutes, he realizes several other things too: he is officially a crazy cat person now. And he is never going to get laid again.

*If You Say the Word, I Could Stay with You by Black_Betty

Erik has a well thought out plan of attack when it comes to marriage proposals.

Of course, the best-laid plans…

One of the best proposal fics, seriously.

*never been so alone; never been so alive (la douleur exquise) by afrocurl

Erik’s wedding was meant to be an ending and then it wasn’t. Then it was a beginning of something else entirely.

Based off of Axis on a Tilt. Both are amazing and obviously a favourite as they both made this masterpost.

Order Up by ikeracity

Charles has a terrible habit of multitasking, and that is probably why he absentmindedly tells the pizza man that he loves him when hanging up.

Then the pizza man says it back. And Charles is pretty much smitten from there.

Popular for a reason. Pretty sure it was based off a popular text post.

**Raven’s Dad Has Got It Goin’ On by kayceeagitate

Erik’s only staring because he likes the car that belongs to the hot young dad of a classmate of his kids’, he swears. Wanda and Pietro don’t believe him for a second. Enter Raven and a plan.

Simple and Uncomplicated by Pookaseraph

Erik and Charles had been fuck buddies for some, but when Charles is in an accident he figured their relationship would be over. Erik’s visit to his bedside in the hospital changes his assumptions even as he has trouble believing Erik is sincere.

Your Father’s Daughter by ConsultingWriter

Wanda proves just how much she takes after Erik.

Pietro reeled back before leaning back in “They didn’t tell you what happened? Wanda got in a fist fight and totally wailed on this guy, I mean, on one hand I feel kinda embarrassed for him, but it was so epic.”

Erik’s eyebrows shot to his hairline. Wanda got in a fight? That was….surprising, to say the least. Wanda tended to take after Charles in temperament and preferred talking to violence.

Oh look, another adorable kidfic,

*Walking After Midnight (Searching For You) by TurtleTotem

Charles likes to talk walks around his apartment complex late at night when he gets caught up with homework and over stressed. Also, maybe, because he likes to lurk a little bit on the insomniac from A32 who sits on his patio/blacony at odd hours with headphones and a cigarette. One day he’ll muster up the courage to talk to him - preferably during daylight.


You Won’t Need a Hero by Pangea

Charles is just a regular, boring guy with regular, boring problems—like having a very unfortunate crush on his boss.

As it turns out, his boss isn’t quite who he appears to be.


The kitten!verse by Ren

Modern AU in which Charles and Erik are flatmates. Charles studies psychology and likes tea and chess and keeps bringing home stray kittens, and Erik lets him because he’s maybe perhaps a little bit sort of in love with him.

*Erik Lehnsherr’s Guide to Parenting by keire_kei

Erik is Alex’s father and Charles teaches Hank. (my summary)

*Daycare ‘Verse by brilligspoons, pocky_slash

A modern AU in which Charles runs a mutant daycare and Erik is his long-suffering engineer boyfriend.

There’s a reason why this is so popular. It’s so fluffy!

(change the pace and just go slow) by cm (mumblemutter)

A trilogy of one-shots that depict Erik and Charles over the many, many years they’ve known each other. Slightly bitter, but it’s much more sweet. Mainly fluff. (my summary)

Humane Society by smilebackwards

The first one-shot is already on the list, but there’s a sequel and the two come together as both are equally as adorable. (my summary)

*Life of an Engineer by ximeria

Erik is an engineer working for Tony Stark and Charles is a client, who happens to be a close friend of Tony’s. First in the series is called Building Bridges. I read it right after making this list and knew that I just had to add it to this. (my summary)

Awesome Authors

I find it very interesting that most people who ship Cherik see Erik as the top & dominant/sexual one and Charles as the bottom & emotional virgin. Let me remind you that Erik spent a great deal of his life knowing only pain at the hands of other people which would not lend itself well to being entirely comfortable with intimacy and Charles was the handsome player hitting on every girl who passed his way in college. He even had an original pick up line.

Rethink your smut!

It’s All Coming Back to Me by Regann

[T, 7k, happy ending] When Erik hears that Charles died on the beach where he left him, there’s only one thing left for him to do: take the world down with him as he crashes and burns in his grief. But maybe the world will get its reprieve before he goes too far.

Cherik family Halloween fic

So something endingthemes said to me on an earlier post gave me a plot bunny and I had to write it for her.

So here, have a Cherik family Halloween ficlet~

(Thank you to the lovely endingthemes for cleaning up her gift ficlet for me, urg. You’re a sweetheart!)


Erik likes holidays.

Ok, maybe ‘like’ is a strong word. He doesn’t hate holidays. He occasionally finds them pleasant, especially since he started dating Charles a few years ago.

He probably should thank him for that. Instead he says, “Charles, I’m going to throw your wheelchair out the window if you don’t put the makeup down.”

See, while Erik is not opposed to holidays, he absolutely loathes Halloween. Can’t stand it. The kids are too loud, the parents are too rude, the streets are too chaotic and if you don’t put a sign on your door you’re expected to have candy. However, if you do put a sign on your door, suburban white moms in perfectly styled bobs write letters of complaint to unknown people in local government who send you a letter about ‘community’ and other such bullshit.

“They’re not bobs, dear.” Charles hums from his spot next to the bed, sifting around in the makeup bag.

“What?” He knows that Charles was eavesdropping, but sometimes he likes to make Charles work to have a normal conversation.

for the prompt “one is too short to reach a can of soup at the supermarket au” from this post, but i changed the soup to cookies


Early Saturday morning is the best time to go grocery shopping. By eleven, the crowds arrive, making the aisles difficult to negotiate and the checkout lines outrageous. At 9:30 though, the store is nearly empty, just Erik leaning his elbows heavily on his cart as he navigates and a few employees stocking shelves.

Erik turns down the next aisle and barely avoids hitting a cart that has been left abandoned, nearly blocking the entire aisle. He pushes down his surge of annoyance, but surely it’s not that hard to put the cart to the right or the left, and some asshole has simply left theirs sitting right in the middle. Erik sighs and moves the cart out of the way, the screeching of the wheels grating further on his nerves, and he notes that the cart is full of organic, gluten-free, cage-free, and non-GMO items. He doesn’t even know the owner of this cart, but he already hates them.

Inspired by Cannot be Contained in Words by Wallhaditcoming

"Crime syndicate head Erik Lehnsherr travels to London on business, where he meets oxford student Charles Xavier. Their liaison spawns into a years long transatlantic affair, kept apart by Erik’s work and Charles’ studies,which Erik chronicles in photographs. When distance ceases to be an issue after four long years, the overlap between Charles’ past and Erik’s work create a whole new set of complications." 

Cherik Fic Rec - Personal Favorites

(because I have been in the x-men: first class fandom for four months now, and I am still amazed by the consistently high quality of all its fanworks, especially the fic! we have so many talented writers in this fandom, it’s wonderful. so, here is a list of my personal favorites.)

(note: please heed author’s warnings/tags before reading, some fics are lighthearted and some are definitely not.)

A Logical Progression by cloudyjenn

[M, 17k, mpreg] Erik and Charles were only together once before doubt and fear ground their romance to a halt. But once was apparently all it took. Now Charles is dealing with a pretty crappy secondary mutation, a brand new career teaching mini-mutants and a stubbornly overprotective Erik. This is the story of how Charles and Erik got from Point A to Point B and what they collected along the way.

A Matter of Convenience by dedkakeluna2k

[M, 19k] Erik manages the small store his late parents left behind and his days bleed together in a tiresome monotony until he touches the hand of loyal customer Charles Xavier. They tip-toe around each other as they struggle with mutant rights and the resurgence of gang violence in the neighborhood.

hero-madness asked:

Do you have any fics with childhood abused Charles

I do! :D Here’s a list of canon-verse fics (if you want AUs lemme know ^^)

Scars by blackash26 (R |Mansion!fic)
Summary: In the heat of the moment Erik discovers that he was mistaken about a few of his assumptions regarding Charles’ life.

Golden - JPlash {R |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood |Mansion!fic}
It was more days than Erik was still counting when his senses stumbled over a glowing metal anomaly out near the walls of the Westchester estate; more days than it should have taken to realise that he was not the only one with long-buried secrets.

Only When You Sleep - ninemoons42 {PG |Mansion!fic |Unhappy Childhood}
Charles is so good at keeping his secrets. His missing father. The stepbrother who had bullied and abandoned him. His mother, quietly fading away under a medicated stupor.

Scars - TurtleTotem {PG-13 |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood |hurt!Charles}
Charles has burn scars from the fire that killed his stepfather. He doesn’t want anyone to see them — least of all Erik.

Enervate - Tokidoki Fish (JustAnotherAnon) {PG-13 |Hurt!Charles |Reference to rape |Post-XMFC |Happy ending |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood}
Charles had an abusive childhood (like in the comics, but worse) and when he finally got away, he repressed everything behind mental walls, to the point he doesn’t really remember anything about it. After the events of the movie, his mental state deteriorates, and those walls come down.
Sequel: Innervate

The Broken Ones - ikeracity {R |Recruiting |Hurt!Charles |Nightmares |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood |Warning: Rape/Noncon |Fix-it |Beginning to end |Canon!AU: Erik stays}
Erik has dreams of a dark room, of being pushed down into the floor and violated in a way that makes him scream until his throat is raw. But Shaw never, ever touched him like that, so Erik wonders if he somehow repressed memories of Shaw’s torture. Either way, he hides the dreams from Charles, intent on suffering through it alone, as he always has.

And then one day, the nightmares come when he’s still awake, and he realizes that these aren’t his nightmares, they’re Charles’s. It’s Charles projecting in his sleep, and then Erik realizes that they aren’t nightmares at all, they’re memories from Charles’s hidden past.

All the Stars Were Falling - verilyvexed {NC-17 |Canon!AU: Alternate Scene |Telepathy |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood}
Erik finds Charles in his bed rather than Raven. Can be read as a missing scene, or you can squint and pretend it means the Beach Divorce never happens.

Look This Life in the Eye - MonstrousRegiment (PG-13 |Mansion!fic |Hurt!Charles |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood)
There’s a locked door in Xavier Hall to which no one has access. In making inquiries, Erik realizes he’s built his opinion on Charles on the wrong foundations.

Rumor Has It - blueink3 {PG-13 |Post-XMFC |Kid!fic |EPIC)
Nearly six months after Cuba, Charles’ life is turned upside down for the second time. Though he’s slowly learning to adapt to the first, he’s not sure he can handle the second. Luckily for him, there are a few people out there more than willing to help. (This one is long but it does have reference to his abusive childhood. There’s a particular chapter where Erik and the gang do find out just how abusive it was)

Up Here, My Dear - Jessi0129 (PG |Mansion!fic |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood)
This house for him holds cloudy memories, but maybe one day looking back on his life, the memory of this night on top of it’s roof under the sky, won’t be so starless.

Handle With Care - melo {PG |Hurt!Erik |Mansion!fic |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood |Hurt/Comfort}
Erik is used to pain. What he’s not used to is someone caring about it.

The Far Side of Redemption - oxymoronic (PG-13 |Mansion!fic |Fluff | Erik + Charles’ Unhappy Childhood |Pining)
Charles had a better or at least more secure childhood than Erik, but his mom was distant and didn’t really care about him. So I’d just like the two of them exploring Erik’s happy memories of his mother and Charles basking in their love and warmth because he never had that with his mom. Erik is bowled over that he can provide Charles with that.

Don’t Let The Bedbugs Bite - Pillow_Bee {PG-13 |Mansion!fic |Nightmares |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood |Angst}
Charles goes around the mansion that first night he brought the mutants there to tuck them to sleep while trying his best to hold back a bitter childhood memory.

Childhood - ximeria (PG-13 |Mansion!fic |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood)
Charles grew up in a big house with a wealthy family, his childhood was by no means a bed of roses

Tears - Romanec (PG-13 |Gen |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood |Flashbacks |Mansion!fic)
Before the CIA and Erik and Shaw, there was just Charles on the edge of the roof and Raven pleading with him to step away.

Je n’ai jamais promis un jardin de roses - chezvous {PG |Character Study |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood |Mansion!fic}
Charles had wanted a puppy for his tenth birthday. (Or: Charles takes care of roses to make up for the fact that he was not loved quite enough during his childhood.)

Lightning in a Metal Conductor - cytheriafalas {PG-13 |Mansion!fic |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood}
Erik thinks something is wrong with Charles and he goes to find out what it is.

Roses in December by blackash26 {PG-13 |Setting: Mansion |Hurt/Comfort |Missing Scene |Charles’ Unhappy Childhood |Pre-slash |Friendship}
Summary: The night before the beach Charles is acting strangely. Erik tries to get to the bottom of things.

Most of Luninosity’s Holiday Fic Series have reference to Charles’ childhood and emotional hurt/comfort sooo highly recommended :D

Cherik Ficlet: Concerning Dragons.

You people made me read Guards! Guards!. I loved it, and then I wrote these 600 words. You’re all to blame.

Dedicated to Maimo, who didn’t ask for this.

Summary: Charles is a sacrificial virgin, and unhappy about it. The Mighty Dragon Magneto is of the opinion that they don’t make sacrificial maidens like they used to.


“Now see here,” said Charles sternly, “you can’t just hoard all this gold and…assorted valuables all to yourself.”

X-Men Angsty Cherik Fic Recs

(because we can’t have nice things and we enjoy seeing our favorite characters in pain <333 so here is a bunch of super sad cherik fics, some have happy endings, some don’t. enjoy <3)

requested by the-doctor-to-my-tardis :)

It’s Not About Hurting Him by Romanec

[T, 1k, consensual violence] People stare at them like there’s something wrong. Like there’s something wrong with Erik. Like there’s something wrong with Charles. As though they should be ashamed.

But this is how it works for them.

***Nine Eleven Ten by Subtilior

[NC-17, WIP, 542k, lots of warnings] Years later, Charles would remember that day. Sometimes he would wonder if he could have changed anything; other times he would despair over what he had since become. But he would always hold the image in his mind: Raven, laughing, and his thoughts flying alongside her on strong wings, silver-gold through the winter air. Once upon a time.

(okay reccer note: do not let the length offput you this fic is amazing and wonderful and twisted and heartwrenching and you must absolutely read it. it’s basically a beauty and the beast!au with elements from fallout and yeah it’s stunning)

***Honest Bone and Burning Thought by Black_Betty

[M, 9k, accidental self-harm] And so sometimes, his mind buzzing away, bright and brilliant and humming with pure expansive energy, Charles speaks without thinking at all. Without censoring himself. Without realizing that his brain has reached out and snatched something that was never his to know, or take…
