Charles/Connor, Time Travel, tw: suicide
I read a fic over on AO3 and its basic premise was that Connor spares Charles' life and takes care of him. They go from enemies to friends to lovers. I read another fic on FFN where Connor was suffering from some sort of mental illness, presumably depression. OP requests something similar... initially. Connor spares Charles and Charles recuperates in the homestead. Charles slowly falls in love with Connor. BUT he never works up the nerve to confess. Meanwhile Connor is fighting a losing battle against his steadily worsening mental illness (18th century and its lack of mental health support being what it is). He's haunted by ghosts of the past and constantly second guessing his actions and morals. When Charles finally works up the courage to confess, he finds Connor in the forest. Hanging and very, very dead. For whatever reason (POE?), Charles suddenly finds himself flung back in time. Standing beside a very much alive William Johnson and watching a very alive Connor drop a crate of tea into Boston Harbour. So he's gonna do his absolute best to make sure things work out this time around. If you are uncomfortable with writing mental illnesses, you can change it to Connor being murdered by some Templar or other. I need cute fully consensual fluff between these two and I don't know why. RTMIs welcome. Bonuses/Ideas! + Sweet, fluffy platonic bonding moments between them + Charles unable to contain his joy at seeing his friends and grandmaster alive again + Haytham being very suspicious about Charles' weird behaviour + Charles trying to orchestrate more bonding time for Haytham and Connor + Connor and Charles meet and against Charles' hopes, they descend into a snark fest + Connor being very confused by Charles' kindness to him + If you ever get to them getting together, Connor being able to get pregnant (First Civ genes? POE?) + And/or Connor is an asexual and Charles being very respectful about it
