In which freshly-fallen Sith Apprentice/Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi
has to report to the Jedi Council after returning alone from a fateful
mission to a Sith temple.
This is a snippet for one of
several Sith!AUs that occupy far too much
of my brainspace to be healthy. It’s also a
Qui-Gon-lives-and-takes-Anakin-as-a-Padawan-AU, which means
Obi-Wan is a young Jedi knight left to figure things out on his own
without a padawan or master to help ground him. At least the Supreme
Chancellor of the Republic seems to be genuinely interested in his life,
even though he is a politician.
Because I have
only 20 days left to finish my 60-page thesis (of which I have already
finished two pages- yay!), I decided today would be a great day to
finally sit down and actually write some fanfic. Which I haven’t done in
more than a decade and which I’ve never seriously attempted before in

feels no inner turmoil: no fear, no anger, not even self-loathing. Not
anymore. In a way, Obi-Wan Kenobi has never felt more like a Jedi than
in this very moment. There is no emotion, there is peace. It’s
the one tenet of the Code he had struggled with the most during his
younger years, a struggle that had almost cost him his place in the
And isn’t that truly ironic? Qui-Gon has feared his
emotions would leave him vulnerable to the dark, but in the end the dark
turned out to be what helped Obi-Wan rid himself of them at long last.
Or I’ve just gone into shock. It has been a long time coming, after all, and maybe the horror of what he has done— of what he has had to do, he reminds himself again— will only delay the inevitable appropriate emotional response. He isn’t sure which he prefers.
Six months after Cuba, Charles and Erik find themselves thrown fifty
years into the future, where they meet their older selves, the Avengers,
and a world that’s very different from their own. Faced with the pieces
of their broken relationship, an unparalleled adversary, and dealing
with Tony Stark on a daily basis, Charles and Erik do their best to
adapt while trying to find a way back home – and to each other.
Tony Stark has known Charles Xavier since Tony was eight and Xavier was his Uncle Charles. Now that Tony’s all grown up, Charles vets his dates. Well, most of them. Except for the ones where Charles brings someone who should really be in jail, not a fancy restaurant.
In which Charles and Erik run a newspaper, wrangle interns, outrun the
feds, outwit a 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
Out in the black of space, where the only creatures whose company you
can always count on are violence and death, making a living is a wager.
Erik’s crew of mismatched social misfits scrapes by, toeing the line
between law and crime. Normally, they prefer to stay out of the
Alliance’s way, but when it comes to defending the very freedom they
fought for a decade ago, they only follow one principle: when someone
tries to kill you, you kill them right back.
Written for a firstkink prompt for Thor shipping Erik/Charles to the
point that SHIELD gives the Avengers the mission of getting them back
together. Since Charles is Tony’s cousin, he feels a more personal
stake in the matter.
Steve and Charles are called in to do a mission that maybe requires them to pose as a couple. And because of the delicate nature of the situation, they have to travel immediately, under the cover of the night, and aren’t allowed to tell even their SOs.
So of course by the time it gets back to Tony and Erik, they’re shocked to discover the loves of their lives have eloped with each other. And then Steve and Charles get in trouble, so of course the jilted duo suit up to go rescue them, because even they still love their traitorous paramours.
Cue Erik and Tony shenanigans where they are alternatively vengeful/snippy over each others’ exes, defensive about theirs, insecure as they realize fuck Charles and Steve might actually deserve each other more why were they ever with us, and learn to work together like a catty dream team.
this dude’s tinder bio had of a list of his interests, which include the oxford comma, but he failed to use the oxford comma in his list
this so perfectly encapsulates the two types of ppl i hate in this city: those who would do that deliberately bc that’s what passes as humor for them, and those who would include the oxford comma in their list of interests on a dating profile without actually knowing what it is
Hi Ending! So I recently got into Star Wars and I was wondering if you knew any Cherik Star Wars au fics? :3 Also do you know any Cherik fics that feature other Marvel characters like the Avengers? thanks :)

“Nanowrimo isn’t meant for putting out good writing,” I say while grinding my teeth. “You just leave your inner editor behind and get words down. It’s the fun of writing without the worry of quality," I continue as I delete a comma and replace it with a semicolon.
