Honestly, this whole Cherik idea was all out of fun, some of you coming at me about it is beyond ridiculous. Like if you hate the idea of it so much or feel the need to ridicule me about it, get the fuck off of my blog. Chances are Marvel won’t do anything about it, but that’s okay. At least we came up with something that most of us agreed with or wanted to happen so that’s all that really matters
I have literally been searching one particular fic for ages!! i think it was a college AU (no powers) and Charles was erik's student and they got like in a pretty problematic relationship and in the end charles moved away and left erik this long sad letter (I cried). it was pretty long as well. I hope you can find it! (if I remember correctly they actually kind of met at a club in the beginning but I could be wrong!!) (it was a long time ago)
Hi there! You are looking for ‘A Deeper Season’ by etirabys, who has unfortunately deleted all of their fic from Ao3. But we do have a kind friend who uploaded copies onto google drive - you can find the post here.
Historically, Erik has always reacted very well to posturing and displays of power. Charles supposes it serves as a reminder that the man Erik married is no fragile creature to be commanded. Some part of Erik longs for the benevolent king, probably as a result of early childhood exposure to the biblical Yahweh and to contrast his own helpless rage. Charles, who has an entirely different set of issues and cultural touchstones, has always been happy to let Erik venerate him in this way.
I am loving this cherik fic. This part especially jumped out of at me.
