X-Men - Enigma by Yahtzee

Written for the following prompt: Erik dies, or finds a reversey-time mutant, or a magical time travelling device, and wakes up in the past. This time, though, it's before he ever met Charles - in fact, it's before his mother died.

He can save his mother that one time (thanks to his mastery over powers carrying back), but what does Erik do after that? Does he stick around, or escape and run to find Charles again (and hope everything doesn't go wrong)?
Reccer's Notes: I always find this piece super touching with the way that Eric's able to find resolution and peace in this fic. I adore the little details that point out how this world's become a better place overall for mutants, and how his relationship has changed with Charles - they're super cute together!

X-Men Movies: Cross-Country by wldnst
Summary: Alex writes Hank a letter. Hank writes back. Eventually, it becomes something else entirely.
Reccer's Notes: I might have fistpumped when I saw this round. I'm a known sucker for epistolary fic, and this one's a personal fave. Takes place after the Beach Divorce and focuses on, well, everyone who's not Charles and Erik. Really lovingly crafted letters and beautiful characterizations. Made me love the ensemble even more, which I hadn't thought possible. Features a charming guest appearance from Allen Ginsberg.

XMFC: Five Ways Logan Fixed Everything (Like a Boss) by Starlingthefool
Summary: What would have happened if Charles and Erik had managed to recruit Logan? (In which Logan solves everyone's problems through snark and BAMFery.)
Reccer's Notes: In many stories, there comes a point when you want to shake the characters and point out what they're doing wrong. This is a story about Logan doing pretty much just that, in his own inimitable style. Because Logan takes no crap from anyone.

X-Men Movieverse: Sponge Away the Writing, by Tam_Cranver
Summary: In which Charles finds himself haunted by a dead future version of himself, together they experiment with changing the course of history, and there is much hand-holding.
Reccer's Notes: This is an interesting twist on the "older version of character gets sent back in time to their younger self's body" in that a) the younger self doesn't just magically disappear, and b) the younger self, given the new information from the older self, is the one who does the changing. Instead of chopping off the end of XMFC like most XMFC fix-its do, this instead aims at changing the future and thus preventing what we see in the original trilogy. It's very effectively done.

X-Men First Class--Puzzle Pieces by lilacsigil
Summary: Magneto's team realises that Darwin might still be alive and attempts to find him. When they are caught in an ambush and half the team is captured, Mystique has to lead the rescue effort. Darwin calls in the kind of help that Mystique doesn't want, but does need.
Reccer's Notes: This is a great team adventure fic that really showcases the three women. It is a lot of fun, and as a bonus it both brings back Darwin (yay!) and explains how come Erik helped build Cerebro. This is what I wish happened after the beach.
