Hello Anon! I hope some of these tickle your fancy! Here are the aforementioned fics: Your Baby is My Supermagnet (My Baby is Your Drug) by Unforgotten and Unfinished Business by pocky_slash, both of which are fantastic!
For I Mean to Conquer Troy by twelve_pastels [M, Cherik, Azazel/Raven, Hank/Alex, Set one year post movie, Charles overloads himself in Cerebro, and his mind goes walkabout. Erik temporarily takes over the school in his absence.]
Mod Note: I adore how it is Erik-centric and there are so many bits that make you laugh and make you cry and everything in between. If you haven’t read this Big Bang, then I highly recommend it!
Synthesis (Scenes from an AU) by starlady [M, Cherik, Synthesis is a dynamic process. Or, scenes from the AU where Charles and Erik have sex, get married, become best friends, and run the school together.]
Mod Note: Why did this happen in the movie again?
Let Freedom Ring by apolesen [NC-17, Cherik, Erik/Raven, Hank/Raven, Raven/Angel, Two arrivals to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters coincide - Jason Stryker, a child branded a freak because of his psychic powers, and Erik Lehnsherr, wanted terrorist and old friend of the professor. Jason is there as his father wants him cured - Erik claims that he has gone rogue from his own renegades. As tensions rise between mutants and humans, as well as between the suddenly reunited friends, who can truly be trusted?]
Mod Note: This one is hauntingly beautiful and deals with transphobia. It is written beautifully with period appropriate homophobia with a punch in the gut ending. But that shouldn’t deter you from reading this amazing work!
-And in that moment, I swear I couldn’t feel my legs
I swear to god
I am done.
[muffled sobbing in the distance] erik and charles
[the sound of sobs gets louder] erik and charles
[me running towards you while crying] erik and charles
[tackling you to the ground and ripping shirt open] erIK AND CHARLES
One time I read a fic where Charles was still able to feel his legs at this point, and it was only after Erik turned him over and moved him around that he lost feeling.
This was something that he never ever told Erik.
Just thought I’d ruin some of your lives you’re welcome.
and this boys and girls is why you never move someone with a back injury
noT IN THIS FANDOM BUT NOPE NOPE NOPE
#technically #if you think about it #the bullet’s trajectory entering charles’ spine was probably bad enough #but the fact that erik then REMOVED the bullet is probably what really made him paralysed #especially since we see charles’ legs moving until after the bullet’s removed #we could argue that’s just mcavoy’s mistake but i don’t think so #i think erik really did paralyse charles #and i think he did it when he was trying to help him in his own way #so basically #erik’s powers have always succeeding in destroying that which he loves
#can you imagine after the beach divorce #having to lie in bed and think about each other #replay that scene over and over #think about what went wrong #what caused the empty spot on the pillow next to him #erik wondering if charles is doing alright now #even though of course he is because he’s charles fucking xavier whose optimism practically cures cancer #of course he’s doing alright #but that doesn’t change that erik stares at the spot next to him and closes his eyes and hopes to feel the dip in the bed one last time (via xrawrchelle)
Rachel go sit in a corner and think about what you’ve done
