I read a fic on AO3 and have never been able to find it again, hoping you can help. It was a non-powered AU, Charles was a professor working in Berlin (I believe), Erik is a prostitute working the corner near his apartment. Charles buys a night of Erik's time because he thinks Erik looks cold, and they end up just playing chess and talking. Very sorry for the vagueness, it was while back, but the writing was just so stunning.
