daning in the dark


when erik lehnsherr, beleaguered middle school teacher and single father to three mutant kids under ten, moves back to the city…shit hits the fan. 

you see, mob bosses don’t tend to forgive easily, and sebastian shaw is no exception. when erik is forced to return to his old contacts to find work, shaw does his damnedest to ruin erik’s life - blocking his job prospects, manipulating his kids, messing up his finances. erik eventually turns to his old friend azazel, continued employee of shaw who was the one who secretly helped erik leave when magda fell pregnant, asking if there’s anyone powerful enough to take shaw out.

az confides that there’s only one crime family in the world powerful enough to challenge shaw - the notorious xavier siblings, charles and raven. they asked for azazel’s help in infiltrating shaw’s base in return for sparing him and his friends when they took down the hated crime lord shaw, and az puts erik in touch with them.

are charles and raven enough of a match for shaw? is erik willing to pay the price the xaviers demand of him? what’s going on between az and raven, and does charles know about it? is everyone going to get out of this mess unscathed???? and how much did that ridiculous custom button-operated throne-wheelchair cost???? WHO KNOWS, we haven’t written the fic yet. all that is certain is that I am never ever going to draw raven looking like jlaw.
