Hi, I was wandering if you could recommend me some Cherik that is about them and the rest of the gang starting the school, about the kids they get, and about being parents/teachers to them. It can be fluff, it can be angsty, it can be AU, Mpreg. I've already read "Your Baby is My Supermagnet (My Baby is Your Drug)" by Unforgotten and "Unfinished Business" by pockslash, so something like that(?) Thanks a lot!

Hello Anon! I hope some of these tickle your fancy! Here are the aforementioned fics: Your Baby is My Supermagnet (My Baby is Your Drug) by Unforgotten and Unfinished Business by pocky_slash, both of which are fantastic!

For I Mean to Conquer Troy by twelve_pastels [M, Cherik, Azazel/Raven, Hank/Alex, Set one year post movie, Charles overloads himself in Cerebro, and his mind goes walkabout. Erik temporarily takes over the school in his absence.]  

Mod Note: I adore how it is Erik-centric and there are so many bits that make you laugh and make you cry and everything in between. If you haven’t read this Big Bang, then I highly recommend it!

Synthesis (Scenes from an AU) by starlady [M, Cherik, Synthesis is a dynamic process. Or, scenes from the AU where Charles and Erik have sex, get married, become best friends, and run the school together.]

Mod Note: Why did this happen in the movie again?

Let Freedom Ring by apolesen [NC-17, Cherik, Erik/Raven, Hank/Raven, Raven/Angel, Two arrivals to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters coincide - Jason Stryker, a child branded a freak because of his psychic powers, and Erik Lehnsherr, wanted terrorist and old friend of the professor. Jason is there as his father wants him cured - Erik claims that he has gone rogue from his own renegades. As tensions rise between mutants and humans, as well as between the suddenly reunited friends, who can truly be trusted?]

Mod Note: This one is hauntingly beautiful and deals with transphobia. It is written beautifully with period appropriate homophobia with a punch in the gut ending. But that shouldn’t deter you from reading this amazing work!

hi, i was wondering if you could rec some cherik fics where one of them is trans?

Hello Anon!  I would love to show you my favourites!

Second Chances by Red
[ Different for Girls (1996) AU ] [ FTM Charles ] [ Cherik ]
In a modern AU where mutants are still treated as second-class citizens, Erik once found himself an unlikely friend at a state-run boarding school. When Frances went off to college early, he felt abandoned and figured he’d never meet her again. Fifteen years (and almost three thousand miles) later, Erik runs into an oddly familiar man.

Mod’s Comments: This one is definitely one of the best trans* fictions I have read (not that I have read all that many mind).  It is an intense but endearing read, there are moments you laugh and then those when you want to cry. As one commenter said: “Great depiction of trans* issues without making it take up the entirety of the story’s frame.”  Also the sex is hot, sexy and body-positive which is brilliant!

Let Freedom Ring by apolesen
[ 1960s ] [ Jason Stryker MTF ] [ Warnings for: Ableism, Homophobia, Transphobia, Angst. Heed the other tags. ] [ Cherik ]
Two arrivals to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters coincide - Jason Stryker, a child branded a freak because of his psychic powers, and Erik Lehnsherr, wanted terrorist and old friend of the professor. Jason is there as his father wants him cured - Erik claims that he has gone rogue from his own renegades. As tensions rise between mutants and humans, as well as between the suddenly reunited friends, who can truly be trusted?

Mod’s Comments: I remember reading this a long time ago and decided to re-read it today for this ask. The ending will always make my heart break.  There is also period appropriate homophobia on both Charles and Hank’s parts - and if you’re reading this for the Cherik, Erik is the one who wants to be with Charles. Be warned though for some misuse of pronouns along the way, but a very lovely read.

[Kage also apologises if any terms were misused. Please feel free to correct.]
