The basis for this is First Class, rather than any of the other movies/any of the comics.

This is the informal version (read: I am basically copying/pasting bits from emails with [livejournal.com profile] stlkrchck, because her replies help me make more sense, but is more than what I was @-rambling to [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash on Twitter) of one aspect on how I view Charles Xavier.

Or, why I love him. )

If you don't want to read all of that, the bottom line is: I have really strong opinions on Charles and get so sad when people write him in ways that are disingenuous or oversimplified to his character, because I love that he is like, one giant walking gray area and wants what's best for everyone and is still kind of an asshole who's used to getting his way, though I know that's a hard balance to get right (and sometimes I don't think I get it right, but I am always super excited when someone else does).

TWITTER, WHAT ARE YOU DOING.

BUT SERIOUSLY.

CHARLES XAVIER YOU GUYS. I AM GETTING MY FEELINGS ABOUT HIM EVERYWHERE TODAY.

This is stemmed from rewatching First Class with [livejournal.com profile] afrocurl and [livejournal.com profile] stlkrchck in which we had very many feelings that could not be contained in one Livejournal post.

I like having my stuff in my journal, so sorry if you've seen this before?

Title: The First of Many (AO3 link)
Characters/Pairings: Charles/Erik, Angel/Raven (background)
Rating: R
Length: 4300
Summary: Charles speaks of past Christmases with great enthusiasm, traditions he and Raven developed together in their largely insular childhood. He’s so undeniably excited that even if Erik won’t become an active participant in propagating Christmas cheer, he’s still glad to spend time with his ridiculous boyfriend.
Notes: Gift for [livejournal.com profile] stlkrchck for the [livejournal.com profile] secret_mutant exchange. Modern, still powered, AU.

Erik is, at best, neutral towards the 'holiday season'. )

I'm posting things that I wrote at various points. Um, this really shouldn't be taken in any way serious, since I don't particularly care for vampire stories (like even in the Slayer story, there's minimal vamps included).

Characters: Charles Xavier, Erik Lehnsherr
Rating: G
Word Count: ~980
Summary: Cracky mini-fill for this kink_meme prompt: I would like some vampiric Erik/Charles. Both of them could be vampires, either of them could be one, or none of them were -- in fact, they were vampire hunters. Or babysitters. I don't really care.

'How do vampires even have babies? It makes no biological sense,' Charles says, holding the child away from him like she might be a bomb about to go off. )

Title: To Want Unknowingly
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~1500
Pairing/Characters: Charles, Erik,
Summary: Erik has bruises and a busted lip from a fight. Charles provides him with frozen vegetables and concern.
Notes: Modern AU in which Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr are best friends since childhood.

Over the years, Erik has become better at ignoring what anyone says about himself, but if anyone crosses a certain line when speaking about Charles, all bets are off. )

I think this got me over the angst writing block I've had for a while, so hopefully now I can get a handle on the scenes of other things I want to write. I'm rubbish at dealing with my own feelings, so the solution is evidently to write about mutants who are also, um, bad at dealing with their feelings. Enjoy?

Title: The Way I Danced With You
Rating: G
Pairing/Characters: Charles/Erik
Word Count: ~1000
Summary: Erik and Charles share one last dance.
Note: Slight canon divergence. Basically a movie coda. Inspired by the Ben Folds ft Rufus Wainwright version of "Careless Whisper".

Erik's back in the study Charles always favored, one out of many, though Erik never knew what made this one special and now, he supposes, he never will. )

I, uh, don't write fic-porn often for a reason, but this happened. So.

Title: Every Time I Think of You
Rating: NC-17
Pairing/Characters: Charles/Erik, Raven, Azazel
Word Count: ~3900
Summary: Erik starts to trust Charles, has an annoying day at work, and is impatient. Not necessarily in that order.
Note: Modern AU, still-powered, wherein mutant and proud isn't a big deal. Continuation from First Dates.

Exhaustion hit Erik like a landslide once he had parted from Charles. )

Have fluffy kid/stupid teenage stuff while I try to figure out what I'm doing with my other AU, aside from making fun of Charles' idea of a fancy bar.

Title: We Don't Notice Any Time Pass
Rating: G
Word Count: ~3900
Pairing/Characters: Charles, Erik,
Summary: Important instances in Charles' early life, from childhood to adolescence.
Notes: Human AU in which Charles and Erik grow up together and have relatively happy childhoods. They're not romantically involved in this part, but they are stupidly in love. Title from the song "We're Going to Be Friends" by the White Stripes.

Charles meets the beginning of school with nothing short of sheer excitement. )

Title: It's Smile Time!
Pairing: Charles/Erik
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~4900
Summary: Erik isn't the same after a chance encounter with a mutant he and Charles fail to recruit. Fill for this prompt: Recruitment trip. Mutant with the ability to do transmutation and a thirst for causing trouble. Puppet!Erik.
Note: Title from the episode of Angel of the same name. Contains a random original character for the transmutation to happen. To quote Gunn, Erik ends up with the "the proportionate excitability of a puppet [his] size".

There were, of course, going to be mutants found who did not want to have any part of their cause. It was disappointing whenever this happened, but Charles generally accepted it, probably because he could read the reasons off of them even if they didn't always say. )

Title: First Dates
Rating: G
Pairing/Characters: Charles/Erik, Emma
Word Count: ~6000
Summary: Modern AU, still-powered. Emma and Charles are old friends from prep school/college. Erik and Emma are setup on a blind date that goes terribly. This is how Erik meets Charles, and the story of his and Charles' first date.
Note: This is what would happen if I wrote a romance. I gave Erik resistance to telepathy, since that is canon somewhere.

The first time Erik and Charles met Erik was on his one and only date with Emma Frost. )

I think I can do long posts now, yay.

Title: This Crazy Game Called Life
Rating: Mature
WC: ~5100
Summary: Raven declares game night in the mansion. Sean finds an elephant, Erik inherits one hundred unwanted cats, and Charles scars Hank for life with misdirected dirty thinking. This is five thousand words of crack with a dose of schmoop. I'm not sorry. Written for this kink meme prompt.
Note: I mostly went with images I found of a 1960s version of the game, but I've BS-ed the order of the scenarios.

Tonight Charles lingered a little too long in the kitchen while he was debating which bottle of wine to take to Erik while they played their game of chess. This gave Raven ample time to intercept him. )
