queen of omega and my heart

anonymous asked:

Can you rec the 10 must read Erik/Charles fics? either canon or AU is fine, but pls no top!Charles included!

Oooh nooooo this is so hard for me, but I will do my best. To clarify, these are my must reads, and I’m a hopeless romantic who lives for pining and happy endings, so please keep that in mind! 

(In no particular order…)

Our House, In The Middle Of Our Street by Clocks (E, 50k) 
Charles is a social worker who fosters troubled kids, and one day he meets Erik, an ex-convict, who reluctantly agrees to stay for only a while, but ends up staying for good and helping Charles to raise the kids. Awkward parenting ensues.
Ending’s Comment: Funny, cute, a bit heart-wrenching, plus sexy handyman Erik. This is a great romantic comedy that I’ve gone back to a few times. I especially love Erik’s relationship with the kids. 

Anarchy In The U.K. by Yahtzee (E, 160k) 
Good God, Erik thought. The Prince of Wales is gay.” 
Charles lives in the unceasing glare of the public spotlight, yet keeps his sexual orientation a closely held secret, afraid he could lose his throne and force his deeply troubled younger sister into a role that would crush her. Erik, journalist and world traveler, has been a loner most of his life; he has little patience for closet cases. But a chance meeting in Kenya brings these two opposites together and sets in motion a love affair that will challenge the British monarchy – and their most deeply held beliefs about who they are, and who they should be.
Ending’s Comment: This is my go-to Cherik fic to reread even though it’s massively long - it never feels like it’s long enough. Spot-on characterization, amazingly detailed, and so realistic that I’m always a little confused when I realize that Charles is not in fact the Prince of Wales. Also great fleshing out of side characters.

The Better Men by TurtleTotem (T, 70k) 
“I do believe the two of you were in the same year as boys, were you not?” Headmaster Shaw said. “Charles is the most competent deputy any headmaster could ask for, Erik, and he’s been doing this for years…” He trailed off, as if finally noticing something odd in the way his Potions and Divination masters were staring at each other.
“Of course,” Charles said quickly, his voice only a little hoarse, and stuck out his hand. “Welcome back to Hogwarts, Erik.”
Ending’s Comment: While I’ve only ever been a casual Harry Potter fan, this fic was a dream come true. I love the ex-boyfriend trope when it’s done well, plus this had a great amount of intrigue to go with the painful longing I so adore.

Curve Fitting by kianspo (M, 24k
The weird thing is, Charles always introduces Raven as his sister, but he never calls Erik his brother. Erik would be bothered, except he prefers not to think of Charles as his brother, either. He can’t figure it out for four years, and then suddenly he can. Or. A non-powered AU in which Sharon Xavier never remarries, and Charles ‘adopts’ not only Raven, but Erik too.
Ending’s Comment: This fic makes my heart hurt every time I read it, but it’s the best kind of hurt, so I keep going back to it! This is the kind of pining I live for. Narrator Erik is at once utterly funny and completely sad. 

White Nights by spicedpiano, tahariel (E, 194k) 
Duke Erik Lehnsherr of Ironhold needs an omega to carry on his line, and Earl Charles Xavier of Westchester needs an alpha to give him the political leverage he needs in order to make his sister Queen. An arranged marriage brings them together, but Erik’s lust for war and Charles’ hidden agenda threaten to tear them apart. In the frozen Northlands of Ironhold life is hard and cold, and both Charles and Erik must give up their pretense and see each other as they really are: perfect for each other, if only they’ll acknowledge it.
Ending’s Comment: So before I joined the Cherik fandom, I didn’t really like omegaverse, but this fic is perfect and completely opened my eyes. Arranged marriage, pining, political intrigue, and badass Charles? Hot damn, it’s everything I’ve ever wanted.

Space Jam by Pangea (E, 57k) 
Prince Charles Xavier is Deputy Commander of the TEF Heartsteel and the newest mission they’ve been assigned starts out less than desirable and quickly goes downhill from there. It’s alright, though, he’ll cope.It doesn’t help, though, that he’s in unrequited love with his best friend and Commander of the Heartsteel, War-Prince Erik Lehnsherr.
Ending’s Comment: At once hilarious and totally heartfelt, this fic was one of the very first Cherik fics I ever read. I love this Charles, and I love their oblivious pining and SPACE! Also, bonus Deadpool.

X Marks the Spot by thehoyden (E, 20k) 
The year is 1962, and Charles Xavier is a professor of archaeology who knows how his students feel, whether he wants to or not. He spends his spare time researching a mythical artifact, but he knows better than anyone that X never, ever marks the spot.
Ending’s Comment: A bit of a whirlwind Indiana Jones-like adventure complete with intrigue and hot sex. What’s not to like?

Impulse Decisions by listerinezero (E, 41k)
Erik wakes up in Las Vegas with a hell of a hangover, a telepath in his bed, and a ring on his finger. Now what?
Ending’s Comment: Two words: FAKE MARRIED. I love watching them pine away.

Replay by Unforgotten (M, 13k) 
After Magneto of an X2-ish future succeeds in the unthinkable, Charles sends his consciousness back to 1962 to guide Erik away from the path that will lead to the genocide of the human race forty years hence.Charles knows that Erik has always loved him, and intends to use this knowledge + sex to seduce Erik away from his ideals in his youth.There’s no way this well-thought-out, sensible, debugged and 100% bulletproof plan can possibly go wrong.
Ending’s Comment: The time-travel fix-it of my dreams. It’s laugh out loud funny while also pulling the heartstrings. Both Charles and Erik are super endearing in this one.

A Curious Carriage of Crystal and Cold by Etharei (E, 114k) 
Charles, a miner from a poor village in the countryside, saves the life of Erik Lehnsherr, scion of a successful business family and the richest man on the planet Eisen. Charles is a telepath and somewhat anxious about it, while Erik abstains from relationships because the lights flicker and doors open and electronics vibrate when he gets too excited. Also featuring a long-suffering sister, a foul-mouthed bodyguard, and a best friend with a heart that is definitely not gold.
Ending’s Comment: Unbelievably good world-building, an intriguing plot, and Erik unable to have sex without breaking stuff. Bless. Also space! Space is awesome!

Ok, so I got this far and then I realized… there are still at least 10 more I’d like to rec, and most of them are “less known” fics which I don’t see as often on rec lists, so I will be back with a part 2 with some slightly more rare fics!

fightmefool  asked:

I desperately need some ShrinkyClinks mpreg and Steve's hormones are all over the place so Bucky constantly be with his omega so he can swoop in and calm Steve down before he freaks out over the tiniest things.

Steve is always a fire-cracker. Always has been and always will be. Bucky isn’t sure how Steve even has the patience to put up with him most days, but he’s not complaining. 

Since Steve had spent so much of his childhood sick, he’d always been taken care of, by nurses, or his mother, and he hated it. He made a point to tell Bucky off every time he tried to help Steve with anything, which was stupid, and annoying as hell, but didn’t stop Bucky from trying. 

Once Steve got pregnant however, much to both of their surprise and excitement, he’d been a wreck. For once he wasn’t sick, didn’t even had morning sickness, but his hormones ran the gambit every hour of the day, leaving him strung out and exhausted to the point of tears. 

Bucky tried to be supportive, and it was a testament to how bad Steve was feeling that he didn’t always push Bucky away, but Steve’s already short fuze had gotten increasingly shorter and shorter as his pregnancy progressed. Now Bucky had to stick close to his omega to stop him from losing it over even the smallest thing. He knew Steve was frustrated with himself, for getting so emotional over nothing, but Bucky didn’t mind. It was just something they did now. 

“God damnitt Buck, I can’t even reach the top of the fridge, I just-” 

There it was, the hitch in Steve’s breath that meant he was going to start yelling or crying, and Bucky didn’t want to hear either of those things, though from his defeated expression Bucky assumed the latter. 

“Don’t worry Stevie, I can get it for you.” Bucky walked over, pressing a kiss to the top of Steve’s head, reaching past him to get the bowl that Steve couldn’t quite reach. 

“Have I always been this useless?” Steve looked up at him with big eyes, his hands actually shaking. Bucky immediately pulled him close, leading him over to the couch and bundling them together. 

“Don’t say that, you’ve never been useless.” 

Steve was scrubbing at his face, frustrated that he was once again unable to stop the tears. “I feel right useless right now. Even more than I did before…” 

Bucky gave him a gentle squeeze. “You want to go to lunch? The place down the street that has the great burgers?” 

Steve knew he was being placated, but he was too tired to argue about it for once, and just nodded. 

Bucky almost immediately regretted lunch. Steve was already fried, he should have known better than to take him out into public. He would never be embarrassed about his mate, and while watching Steve spit angry words at big-headed alphas would always be funny, sometimes he just wanted to sit through lunch. 

It was fine until some guy tried to bully the waitress into a free drink, all it took was one look at Steve and Bucky knew he was probably going to get thrown out of here. Shame, they had such good food. 

“Hey pal, why don’t you just let the lady do her job. It’s not her fault you’re an idiot.” Steve hissed, looking like he wanted to stab the man in the eye with his straw. 

The guy took one look at Steve and went back to heckling the waitress, but not before Bucky heard him mutter something nasty under his breath. 

“Wanna run that by me again? I didn’t quite hear you.” Steve pulled himself out of the booth, his hands balled into fists. 

The man’s eyes slid off Steve and landed on Bucky. “Why don’t you control your omega, pal?” 

Bucky didn’t even have time to open his mouth before Steve leapt at the guy. Usually Steve showed a little more decorum, but obviously the guy had struck a nerve. 

Shoving fries in his mouth Bucky pulled himself up as well, slapping down a $20 on their table and grabbing Steve with his flesh arm, pulling him away from where he was trying to get a solid hit on the guy, and laying the big alpha out with a punch of his own. The guy flopped to the ground like a dead fish, and didn’t move. Getting a face-full of metal fist usually did that to people. 

“We’re really sorry about the ruckus, we’ll get out of your hair.” Bucky mumbled, holding Steve close to his body as the tiny omega continued to snarl at the man on the floor. 

Once back at their apartment Bucky closed the door carefully and turned to see a very cowed-looking Steve standing in the middle of the floor. “Buck…” 

“Jesus Steve, I feel like I need to print out business cards that say “Sorry, he’s pregnant,” to hand out to the public every time we go out.” Bucky actually put his hands on his hips, leveling a look at his mate. 

Steve picked at his sleeve. “I was going to apologize, I don’t mean to be so unreasonable…” 

Bucky gathered him up in a kiss. “Just try okay? I don’t want to get kicked out of every good restaurant between here and Queens.” 

“I can’t make any promises.” Steve nuzzled into his neck and Bucky pulled a blanket over them. “Only three more months, right?” 

Bucky gave his mate a squeeze. “Yeah, three more.” He hoped they both survived that long. 

I love pre-serum Steve with all my heart, as angry and argumentative as he is. - Astro

Ghost Show

@ Cleveland, Ohio | September 21, 2016 | The Masonic Performing Art Center


I officially take back any and all doubts that I had been having over the last month in regards to the Popestar tour. It completely blew away any other Ghost show I have ever been to. 

For starters, the set looked fantastic. The checked floor matched with the “marbled” stairs and stages in such a way that before Ghost hit the stage it legitimately looked like some mansion out of the 1930′s. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about them starting the show off with Square Hammer, but it turns out that it starts the show with a pretty large bang instead of a whisper.

The ensemble was another issue that I had been sort of dreading, I hate to say. With Omega missing, I was sure that the show would feel subpar in a way. I’m glad to say that (while I of course miss our dancing queen with all my heart) the rest of the band pulled it off wonderfully. Papa nailed it as always, and our new water ghuleh absolutely blew me away. The new pyrotechnics for the show added so much as well. ESPECIALLY the canons filled with mummy dust, which was insanely fun to try and catch. 

NOW maybe I’m being biased here because this was my first Ghost show being not only front row, but also directly center stage. Not only was the view mind-boggling, but being able to actually communicate with the band visually was surreal. AND THE MOST SURREAL MOMENT OF ALL LADIES AND GENITALS WAS PAPA GRABBING & KISSING MY HAND DURING CIRICE.

Ok I know that’s not exactly rare for him to do, but other girls who have told me that world melts away when he picks you is entirely true. It’s one of the hardest things to explain in all honestly. Everybody was coming up to me after the show and asking me about it and I just had no clue what to say. One guy was like “Papa was about to kiss you, I swear to god he was so close to your face” and I was like I KNOW BUDDY DONT YOU THINK I KNOW THAT. but anyway. I have videos from the show (including an extremely close up vid of my moment with papa) that I’m waiting to post if anybody wants to see it! 

Then meeting them after the show felt really different this time. Maybe it was a personal thing, but for some reason I felt far less nervous talking to the band. Aether (idk what to call him officially, but old water) came out first along with new water and he seemed to be helping her come out of her shell a bit at first. When I asked Aether to sign for me, he turned me around to use my back as support which was really funny and adorable. AND THEN NEW WATER. SHE IS EVERYTHING. She was very quiet and sweet and when I told her how great she did, she meekly said “thank you, it’s big shoes to fill.” I also told her that she’s really inspiring for girls who want to pursue music and she brightened up instantly and was all “Really?! Thank you so much!” Earth was a cutie as always, and I briefly overheard him speaking Swedish to someone before he whirled around and exclaimed “there’s so many people!” before excitedly signing things. Then I moved on to Papa who was pretty mobbed by people, unsurprisingly. Always polite though and talked to each person one by one. When I met him we made the usual small talk and I ended up asking him about Nocturnal Me and who chose to cover the Echo & The Bunnymen song. He said “that was me, actually” and I told him it was really cool for me because I’ve grown up listening to them, and then his head shot up and he made dead eye contact and was like “really? Yeah, yeah, they’re great. That whole album is fantastic.” And then before I moved on he gave me a quick wink, which to me felt like a sort of personal nod considering what had happened between us at the show. I don’t know it was just incredible and I want to relive it over and over.

Ghost killed it last night, and killed me in the process<3

Dothraki!Korrasami AU

(So, I’ve got a lot of questions for this one, and decided to give it a try. Based on the those fan arts floating around that I just adore. Made it omegaverse because certain events need to happen, and this is the best way to explain it.)

By the time she was dressed and fully prepared to meet the alpha her elder cousin had arranged for her to marry, Asami was nervous and scared.

The Dothraki of the Southern Water Tribe lands were infamous warriors, known for being the best killers around.

And she was to marry the strongest of them.

The white dress they had picked out for her flowed down her body in a wave of satin, hugging her curves and showing off her prominent omega features.

She was pale compared to the locals of these lands, and her green eyes were rare to find amongst the natives.

The cool air of early summer brushed along her shoulders, a shiver traveling up her spine at the feeling, as if the wind spirits themselves were seeing her off into the next and terrifying chapter of her life.

Her bloodline hailed from Republic City, the capital of the lands her once great family ruled, her parents and other family members were killed in the uprising, her cousin and pregnant mother the only ones who survived as they were sneaked away, only to lose her mom in childbirth.

Her cousin, the former Prince Lee the Eight, was talking with Tenzin, the man who had taken them in, apparently was well connected with the tribe she was to marry into, as he was half Dothraki himself.

Her cousin leaned over to the taller Alpha, “Where is she?”

“The Dothraki are not known for their punctuality,” Tenzin said; his eyes twinkling in the sunlight. “And Khal Korra is probably the worst when it comes to it.”

Lee snorted and nodded his head, even though he’d never met the legendary Khal, or Avatar, as some people called her, the exiled prince still thought he better than them.

A barrage of hoof-beats came into their ears, and they turned and watched as a gang of riders entered the area.

Asami immediately sniffed out the strongest, an alpha sitting on a pure white mare at the head of the group. She wore wrappings around her chest, with a covering made of leather wrapped around them. Her abdomen and shoulders were bare, showing off the toned muscles of her body. Her pants were accentuated by a fur wrapping around her waist, and there were three blue claw mark tattoos on her each shoulder and a large tattoo of the spirit Raava, who Korra’s tribe heralded as their protector, on her back.

Immediately she knew that this was the one she was to marry, the stony look on the alpha’s face scared her, and she clenched her fists to keep from shaking.

Tenzin walked ahead, speaking in Dothraki language as he welcomed the Khal.

To Asami’s amazement, she watched Korra lean down from the horse to clasp a hand with the middle-aged man, a fond look in the Khal’s eyes.

She stepped forward to get a better look, when she felt Lee tug on her wrist and pull her back, “Do you see how long her hair is? When Dothraki reach the age of thirteen, they stop cutting their hair unless defeated in combat. Khal Korra has never been defeated.” Lee smirked at Asami, “She’s a savage of course, but that alpha’s one of the finest killers alive; probably the best actually.”

Asami gulped, her heart pounding in her chest. Lee leaned down, a mocking and taunting whisper in her ear, “And you will be her queen.”

The omega flexed her hands at that, feeling the nerves running up and down her spine, feeling the anxiety crashing in her stomach.

Tenzin turned to gesture back at them, “Come forward my dear.”

Asami swallowed her fear and walked forward, elegantly descending each step with as much grace as she could muster. The wind blew her long glossy black hair to the side, and she nearly missed the way the alpha’s eyes followed the exposed curve of her neck.

She came to a stop in front of her horse, staying still and not breaking eye contact as she felt the azure eyes take in every detail of her body.

Finally, after what seemed like hours, Korra clicked her heels against the horses’ side, turning as she rode off back the way she came.

The other riders followed their Khal, and Asami took a deep breath and looked down as she felt the burning gaze finally leave her.

Lee ran down the steps, looking like a lanky chicken, “Where’s she going?”

Tenzin inclined his head, “The ceremony is complete.”

“Did she like her?”

“Believe me your grace,” Tenzin chuckled. “If she didn’t like her, we’d know.”

Cherik Historical AUs

Really, she’s a combination of Raven’s snappy writing and Charles’ knowhow in the kitchen. This is a romantic comedy, a wonderful story which I always read whenever I need a smile on my face. <3

X Marks the Spot by thehoyden (NC-17 |Indiana Jones AU!)
The year is 1962, and Charles Xavier is a professor of archaeology who knows how his students feel, whether he wants to or not. He spends his spare time researching a mythical artifact, but he knows better than anyone that X never, ever marks the spot.

Tessellation - nekosmuse (NC-17 |1960s? |Mutant!AU |Telepathic!sex |Hurt/Comfort |Happy Ending |AMAZING |EPIC |Canon Disabled Character |Astral Projection |Genosha}
He had been following Xavier’s career for years. He had read and reread and reread again everything the man had written. He had tried, on more occasions than he could count, to recruit Xavier into the Brotherhood, but each request for a meeting had been denied. Aside from his work, no one knew anything about Xavier. Not what he looked like, not the full extent of his power–though from what little they did know, he was by far the most powerful telepath in existence–and not what his intentions were.

The man was a recluse. As far as Magneto knew, Xavier had never once stepped foot outside his impenetrable Westchester manor. And now he was scheduled as the keynote speaker for the largest pro-mutant conference in the world.

I guess this could count as canon!au? Charles and Erik meet on their late thirties and they’re already pretty popular in mutant politics. Raven is Magneto’s second in command, Hank takes care of Charles, Erik still hates humans and Charles has emotional/psychological issues (and an alcohol problem). This novel I have read and re-read lots of times because it is really amazing and one every cherik fan should read.

Theme and Variations: War - ninemoons42 (NC-17 |Secret Agent/Spies!AU)
Erik Lehnsherr is a musical prodigy and a man destined for great things and great stages. But his life is shattered by a terrible accident that leaves him blind and trying to find his way back to his life, his music, and his place in the world.

Then he meets Charles Xavier, an agent of Section 8 of the Military Intelligence Directorate of Providence, and he finds himself listening in to clandestine radio transmissions and clicking Morse code, and these sounds are part and parcel of a war that can only take place in the shadows and the hidden places of history.

The explosion was fierce and bright and, for a few seconds, it glared with Nyreen’s biotics; a dazzling show that reeked of ozone and guttered out as she died. 

Don’t. Don’t you dare.

Nyreen Kandros always dared.

Artist’s Notes:

There… really isn’t enough I could say about this fic. This is my first MEBB entry for this year’s MEBB. 

And hornkerling COMPLETELY blew me out of the water. I am very, very honored to be the artist to her extraordinary heart shattering fic about Nyreen and Aria’s relationship – right up until the end of Omega DLC.

“You are to be my queen, Rey. Don’t fight this anymore. You know you can’t.”

She snarled at the memory of the Alpha when those words had tumbled from his blackened lips as he’d stood atop her only two nights ago.

She had been able to keep the lust at bay for three months now, and it had built up gradually to the point where she tossed and turned in the night hours because she could no longer think of anything but him in her small cave, her home for the nineteen years of her life.

She rolled around and growled in frustration when the memory replayed in her head, but she didn’t try to resist it anymore. Resisting thoughts or memories of him was beginning to become painful. She had begun to want, to desire, the alpha that had come into her dreams, thoughts, and memories since they met on her favorite spring in a midnight cycle only three months ago.

The Omega had been told that all werewolves lust, but she hadn’t believed it. She believed it now though, as her night cycles were beginning to become agonizing unless she was with him. All she did at night now was pine for something she knew that she shouldn’t. She was an Omega, and he the Alpha of the pack in her area. She’d told herself that she could be without him, but her resolve was quickly cracking.

She tried once more to block everything that was him out, but again, she was met with pain that was a dull ache in her temples. Her eyes snapped open when she heard his song of howls call for her through the snow-laden valley, and then the last of her resolve was broken.

She didn’t think, she just ran. Her haunches launched her into the air and then she was running at speed she only ran when she was running from something. Running from him. Thoughts of him began to to swim as she stirred the snow around her, the white blanket a cool salve for her stinging paws. She knew that if she was in human form, she would’ve smirked. The Alpha had no idea what was coming.

Rey was tired of running away. Even still, she was going to show the Alpha, or Kylo Ren, as he’d uttered to her on their first night of meeting, just how much she desired him after three months of resistance on her part. Tonight, she wasn’t taking down a measly human or daft dear. Tonight, she was taking down an Alpha in the only way females in the pack were able.

The icy wind stung her eyes as she ran with an inhuman speed to his cave, but her mind was set on her goal, now. Perhaps it was when she’d seen another female try to make a move on the Alpha only twelve hours ago that has spurred this, as it angered her more than anything had in her entire life. She’d wanted to claw the eyes out of the female, but she’d decided otherwise when the Alpha pursued her into the forest.

Only when she finally got to his cave did she realize that she’d traced his scent and sensed him to find this place- everyone in the pack had a unique scent, and only two that were to be mated could find each other through scent. The musky, earthly, coppery smell filled her nostrils as she looked at the intricate symbols and designs etched into the grandiose entrance to his abode.

The symbols evoked something that Rey couldn’t quite place, but the deep etchings with the rays of the moonlight that shone upon them contrasted beautifully. She thought about how much her life was about to change, and then she thought about the act she was about to do with him.

She had for months lusted after the Alpha. As she passed into the threshold of his home, the thought of claiming him came to her, and it….. It excited her to no end. He’d chosen her, and now she was going to choose him after months of resistance to what she knew now was inevitable.

She snapped out of her reverie when she heard his deep, low growl come from deep within the bowels of catacombs in the cave. Instead of white walls like her own cave, his was a shade between russet red and ebony. The walls had wooden torches attached to them on either side every five feet, and the gaping holes on each side went into different rooms, she knew. For anyone else, finding the Alpha in the maze would’ve been impossible, but she was Rey, and she was his chosen mate. She followed his scent into a room on the right on the end of the long hallway, and then she took a left into room full of bones and blood.

Bodies of all kinds of species littered the floor along with pearly white bones, but she paid them, nor the rotten smell, no mind as she continued through a smaller gap in the wall on the far side of the room. She took a series of long winding turns until she could no longer smell the carcasses he’d stored, and then she came to a small hallway just big enough for him to fit through. She crawled under the rock at the end of the hallway and into the room that her life would change in.

The room was not lit by sconces, but rather by moonlight itself. The space looked like it was at the bottom of a volcano with a large circular pattern incised in the ceiling to let a beam of moonlight filter through, and the walls had lively emerald vines that scaled up as if to touch the moonlight.

The floor, instead of the stone she’d been walking on throughout his cave, was grassy and soft under her paws, but through it all, her eyes only settled on the raven colored werewolf that was rolling around and growling, her name falling from his lips.

His eyes were tightly shut, but she knew that all she had to do was call to him and his eyes would burst open.


Her voice was confident and husky, and it was enough to get him to stop moving. His eyes wandered over her as his jaw dropped, but she didn’t need to see that to know he was utterly dumbfounded at her unannounced visit. A grin peeked at the edges of her lips- her mission to claim him was about to begin.
