What Means the Most - Penguina - X-Men - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Charles gets hit by Erik Lehnsherr's car and wakes up in a hospital, realizing he can't feel his legs. Will he ever be able to forgive the man who caused this?

After the accident Charles has a lot of things to get used to. Instead he gets depressed. Erik on the other hand is determined to help him despite his resistance and despite how much Charles hates Erik. Slowly their fighting turns into a beautiful friendship and maybe even more. But Charles can't shake the feeling that Erik's only doing it out of guilt...

Enervate - tokidokifish - X-Men: First Class (2011) - Fandom [Archive of Our Own]
Based on a prompt from the kink meme: Charles had an abusive childhood (like in the comics, but worse) and when he finally got away, he repressed everything behind mental walls, to the point he doesn't really remember anything about it. After the events of the movie, his mental state deteriorates, and those walls come down.

Myosotis - SomeCoolName - X-Men (Alternate Timeline Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
When Charles got back from Cuba, he lost the two things which made him stand: his legs and the love of his life, Erik Lehnsherr. Charles can get used to the wheelchair but he won't ever be able to get pass the loss of Erik.

"I wish I never met him" is something Charles says one night, maybe a bit drunk, absolutely wrecked for sure. It's a bit silly but Charles figures out his only solution is to use his own powers to erase Erik from his mind, progressively.

Balancing Act
"In the aftermath, Charles isn't holding anything together, not really, not even himself. And pretending only gets you so far." (12,516 words) Companion piece to interesting_gin's "Off Balance"

✢ Tuesday Plays the Piper
"In a world where the population is barely holding steady, those of either gender who are capable of bearing children are considered a prized commodity. In all places beyond Westchester, their rights are few--and, with Erik Lehnsherr poised to tear down the gates of the city, even that last haven is on the brink of destruction. But, for Charles Xavier, the consequences of conquest may prove to be more personal than political. No one quite knows why Erik is so set on capturing his old friend and partner in the war against Shaw: Charles is no bearer, and he's disinclined to aid Erik in firmly establishing mutant supremacy once and for all. Charles, however, is all too aware of Erik's reasons. Erik knows things about him that no one else does--things which, if brought to light, would would mean surrendering far more than just a kingdom." (374,102 words) This is an incredible story. It's painful and honest and refuses to give any easy answers, but it rings all the more true for that, and the ending, as raw as it is, is very, very satisfying.

✢ Rumor Has It
"Did I hear the doorbell earlier?" "Yeah, but I'd steer clear if I were you. It seemed a little tense. I don't know what's going on, but there's a kid out there who looks freakily like the prof." Nearly six months after Cuba, Charles' life is turned upside down for the second time. Though he's slowly learning to adapt to the first, he's not sure he can handle the second. Luckily for him, there are a few people out there more than willing to help. (165,961 words)

Surface Tension
“What would you have me do, Erik,” Charles says, softly answering the unasked question. “I can’t simply–pretend, as if I was never ruined? I’m not the man you first met, that boy who believed he couldn’t fire a gun to your face. I don’t even remember him. If that’s who you love, you should have left, because he’s–”
