Fic Recs: Illustrations for The Seventh Tree by Clocks and RaelynnMarie:

Erik has served Shaw, ruler of the desert kingdom Genosha, for years as one of his Elite Knights. His life of unquestioning obedience changes when he meets a man in the strangest of circumstances who is not at all what he seems. (~31k words) 

Comments: So this fic is very, very special to me: it’s the second cherik fic I’ve ever read (very first one was Paper Monsters, also by Clocks), and this is The One that got me into cherik in the first place. The cultural fusion, adventure, great writing, and the slow, sweet and very real build-up between Charles and Erik completely sold it for me. It’s just a gorgeous fic, and more than worth re-reads.

*~cherik fic rec~*

so, to keep record of some things I’ve read, I decided to do a list, then I thought: why not make a fic rec of it?
it’s not in a favorite/rate/word count order, it’s very random, though I’ll include these infomations

when I say random, it’s because some of them are just 2k of porn with plot that you can read in 30 minutes before going to sleep and some are 100k+(or almost 100k) that will take days to finish

and I’m going to add more fanfics everytime I finish one

I LOVE EVERY SINGLE FANFICTION IN THIS LIST, OKAY

thank you to authors for the beautiful writing and for making me cry or roll on the ground or laugh out loud 
i love you all

they’re all cherik

here it goes
