Hey there! I was wondering if you could recommend any trans Erik or Charles fic. I've read like two now and I'm interested in knowing if you have any in mind you could rec or if you could direct me to an answer if this has been asked before. Thanks!
This sat in the drafts for literal ages because I wanted to make an exhaustive list. Let’s make a list of favourites instead, before this takes even longer!
Second Chances by Red [NC-17, 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 note: The fandom classic and with good reason too; It’s awesome!
Chancers by Obstinatrix [NC-17, Cherik]
Erik has always had special talents.
Mod note: The very hot remix of the one above.
Mutatis Mutandis by introductory [PG-13, Cherik]
Charlotte Xavier graduates from high school and is never heard from again.
Mod note: I love the title drop so much…
Your’re the only place that feels like home by betamax524 [PG, Cherik, Soulmate AU]
In this world, the name of your soulmate is marked onto your chest, on the skin above your heart. But what if they decide to change their name along the way?
Mod note: Interesting concept with loads of angst and pain.
Sharing is Caring by moncube [NC-17, Cherik]
Charles shows Erik what it is like to be on the receiving side of a handjob.
Mod note: This is such a clever use of Charles powers! Warm and fuzzy PWP.
Pregnancy is Magical by cygnaut [PG-13, Cherik]
“But—” Erik stopped. “But you can't—you don't—”
“Have a womb?” Charlotte suggested, her voice dripping with sarcasm. “Well, apparently, sometimes that’s not necessary.
Mod note: I don’t even know how to tag this but it’s here, it’s queer, and I love it.
Even as Love is, Undivided and Paceless by Red [PG-13, Cherik]
The first ten anniversaries, they spend apart. But for each one after, Erika finds herself suffering yet another extravagant gift.
Mod note: Heartbreaking yet hopeful. One of my all-time faves. Make sure to check out the porny interlude!
Know you more, and different by pearl_o [PG-13, Cherik]
For all of Charles’s slight apprehensions about this visit and meeting Erik’s mother, he hadn’t been expecting this, the slight air of awkwardness that’s been following Erik around.
Mod note: One of the best fics from last year’s Secret Mutant Exchange. Very touching, very real and I wish there was a lot more.
Legally Charles by until_the_earth_is_free [Mature, Cherik, dark topics]
The fic where Charles Xavier one day wakes up and decides to go to Harvard Law, where he meets Erik, the sullen teacher’s assistant.
Mod note: Last but not least: this gem. Don’t let the Legally Blonde AU tag fool you, it’s not a glitzy, bubbly comedy but a quite dark modern AU. With some great humour sprinkled over it; ergo a fantastic read.
