Trying to create the next world war - aesc {NC-17 |Canon!AU: Different meeting}
The voice's owner is a young man, maybe a handful of years younger than Erik, with the earnest expression worn by a boy who's never grown up.

[Or, the one inspired by this moment-inducing gifset, where for some reason Erik's decided to work for the CIA as a means to an end and gets sent to England instead of Moira.]

in which charles is sent to a mental institution as a child and by the time raven breaks him out, he's irreparably damaged. because this is me, there's also a road trip involved.

Bea's comment: I thought for sure that I had recced this before...IT'S HILLARIOUS. LOGAN SOLVES EVERYONE'S PROBLEMS BY BEING A BAD-ASS AND KICKING ASS WHEN NEEDED. GO READ NOW. The UST between Erik and Charles is brilliant!

..and this compromise - luninosity {NC-17 |Canon!AU |D/s |Jealous!Erik |Series}
Written for a prompt of Erik and Charles are starting to negotiate a budding relationship - as dominant (Erik) and submissive (Charles).

Erik's happy to be patient with him - he just loves him and wants to look after him, even if Charles still isn't comfortable with being looked after.

A Boy and his Bear - PoorMedea  {PG-13 |Canon!AU |Fluff |Recruiting |Pre-slash}
Erik Lehnsherr is the type of man who hates puppies, kittens, and babies. He's the type of man for whom peace is not an option. He's the type of man who would walk away from the only person who's truly loved him.

This is the story of how Charles and Erik got from Point A to Point B and what they collected along the way.
Bea's comment: Really nice mpreg fic, with misunderstandings, pining, Charles being a darling who wants a cuddle from Erik and waits and waits for it, and just, everything is awesome.

Charles will try anything in bed twice to make sure he wasn’t wrong the first time.Charles is unexpectedly fond of Christmas. Perhaps that is not the phrase. “Unhealthily obsessed” might be better.

Bea's comment: What says in the summary. Keeps trying until he GETS IT RIGHT.

Bifurcation - AlchemyAlice {PG-13 |Canon!AU: Erik stays |Crossover: Wanted |Wesley!Charles |Split personality |No paralysis }
Raven knew basically everything about Charles. She knew how much milk he liked in his tea, what shops in Oxford he bought his clothes from, and which possessions he would run back into his house to save if it were burning down. She knew his fear of spiders, and his guilty impatience with uncouth behavior. She knew that he could be unbearably pompous, and unbearably kind.

From Rage to Serenity (With All the Points in Between) - sky_reid {NC-17 |Canon!AU: Beach |No Divorce |Romantic}
Rage – it's Erik's food, Erik's water, Erik's air; it's not what he intended for Charles. Between – it's hope, a dream, a prayer; it's all the hard work they've put into this. Serenity – it's the goal, the direction, the summit; it's them.

Hunger - Yahtzee {R |Miami |Division X |Canon!AU |Eating Disorder |Hurt!Erik}
Shaw knew that when you are weaponizing a human being, you must also program in failsafes that will protect you should the weaponization backfire. One of the results of his attempting to "program" failsafes into Erik is that following some massive act of disobedience (like trying to kill Shaw), the sight of food becomes abhorrent to him. He can drink water, but not nearly enough to fill his stomach without gagging. It's a harsher punishment than just denying him food, because when you deny someone food they can blame you for their suffering, but in this case he only has himself to blame. And when Shaw lifts the imperative blocking him from eating, he has to feel dependent on Shaw.

Over the years he manages to get over most of the conditioning, but attacking Shaw directly triggers it again. At first Charles thinks that Erik is just sort of weird and/or doesn't eat much, but he eventually realizes what's going on and tries to help Erik get over the "failsafe."

The Americans and Russians were moments away from inciting a new world war, and likewise, Erik himself seemed a split second from turning humanity against mutants forever. But the words were there without his permission, spilling from his lips in a desperate attempt to save Erik from his own madness, and Charles from the inevitable grief that would follow. So he said it. He shouted it. In one felled swoop he told Erik about the life growing inside of him. It was ridiculous and unbelievable and frightening, and Charles had done his best to ignore it up until that moment. But then, with the missiles moments away from destroying so many human lives, Charles recognized the life inside him for what it was. Grasping at straws he told Erik they'd created a child. There was a baby to consider now, equal parts theirs. Pretending the baby was anything but, was no longer an option.

Apples and Ink - MonstrousRegiment, Pangea {NC-17 |Post-XMFC |Fix-it |Canon!AU (No paralysis) |Hurt!Erik |Crossover: Avengers}
It’s not a snap, or the abrupt give of a dam, wearied with time by pressure. It’s a soft smooth thing, a descent into acceptance, a revelation, gliding and gentle and sweet, into something that’s been there all along.

He’s said the words before, but—the feeling, itself. It’s much more intense, once he allows himself to contemplate it openly. Like looking at the sun without shades. He’d do anything to avenge his mother, but he’d do even more to keep Charles, and oh.

That’s the right way, isn’t it.

Be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade - twelve_pastels {NC-17 |Canon!AU: Alpha/Omega |Bottom!Erik |Alpha/Omega Dynamics}
