If You Liked The Book, You'll Hate The Movie - Chapter 1 - paperclipbitch - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Modern-Day High School AU. It’s not until Hank realises half the class are glancing towards the back of the classroom with something like nerves and something like schadenfreude that he finds out Alex Summers is back.

Basically everyone’s got mental health problems in this and I think at least 20k of it was produced under antidepressant-induced mania last summer. Experimenting with writing styles so five different POVs. I’ve deliberately fucked with ages and friendships and familial relationships for both the movies and the comics. Other than that... this is stupidly long, and a bit ridiculous, and I’m really sorry (all I wanted was to write a cracky fic where Emma and Hank were BFFs. Whyyyyy etc).

I don't even know how to express all my feelings for this. paperclipbitch moves the story effortlessly between points of view, everyone is broken and surviving and not romanticized, every time I thought "oh, whoops, I guess the kids are being back-burned?" I was proven wrong, and basically I read it in one sitting while I should have been doing other things, despite my lack-of-need for X-Men right now.

(That's something I wish English had a word for, lack-of-need.)

Walling in or Walling Out - stlkrchck - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Erik stifles a sigh. Of course this is Mr. C. F. Xavier. Of course.

For the prompt: Charles and Raven are throwing a holiday party. Erik is the grumpy neighbor who is annoyed by how loud they are being. So he goes to complain, and Charles makes it up to him.

This is basically a PWP, really. AND I DO NOT MIND IT AT ALL, NOPE.

Charles and Erik are roommates, there is UST, Raven is an enabling, sex-positive sibling, they have conversations about manatees, and I promise nothing hurts.

Pretty much what it says on the tin, although these boys were so repressed I briefly thought it was set back in the 60s, until someone mentioned FB. Oh well!

WIPVEMBER: The One Where Charles Is Still A Lady But At Least She Gets To Do It With Erik This Time [twentysomething]
He would not hesitate to call Charlotte naive. But, despite the wicked streak in her humor, which probably stems from her sister, he would not call her childish. There is an ancient, dark sorrow inside her- no match for his own- but that suggests that she too, has looked into the hearts of men and found them wanting. However, where Erik draws a pragmatic mistrust of humanity, Charlotte adopts a foolish optimism that he- against his intention and better judgment- cannot help but find charming.

These traits aside, she has a damnable tendency to catch Erik off his guard.

Charlotte heads straight in to the "concierge" and asks for a room for herself and her husband.

Under The Suit (We Have To Work Together) - helens78 - X-Men: First Class (2011), The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Erik slips a hand onto Charles's shoulder as Fury finishes with the presentation, and Charles reaches up, fingers twining into Erik's and squeezing. It gets a look from Stark, who's either got a trace of psychic ability himself or is simply highly-attuned to people having sexual chemistry near him, chemistry that is taking place right in front of him but isn't trying to involve him.

He tosses them a smirk.

"No telepathic boning while we're all out saving the planet, huh?" he says.

This feels like it could easily slide into place inside a larger world, which I LOVE to pieces: the established character dynamics are fucking perfect.

postcardmystery: these are the badlands, chapter one
Scott starts booting up his computer, says, "Everyone is scared of you, Logan, I think there was actually an inter-office memo about it with your name blacked out, that I wasn't sent on purpose. I'm sure poor Bobby-whatever has heard the Logan legend already, you don't have to worry about anyone not being suitably terrified."

Logan grins, again, all teeth, says, "Except for you."

"Duh," says Scott, but he smiles, so fast you'd have to be Logan to catch it, then, looking through the glass, "shit, Lensherr looks like he's about to lose it."

That's different how-" starts Logan, and then Erik throws the door open and it's just another morning in the New York City Police Department Organized Crime Control Bureau.

Oh. My. God. This may just be the most perfect AU I've ever read.

In which you'll find chess dates which aren't dates (or maybe Charles is wrong about that). -- Based on First Class, this turns (slightly) AU during the beach scene.<br />
<br />
How Charles and Erik might've discussed their moral differences, and fallen together along the way. The ending feels a little--rushed, given the slowness of the rest, but at the same time, I'm willing to accept that there are risks being taken, jumped into.

Synthesis (Scenes from an AU) - starlady - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
But the students see it all; they couldn't help but see it, given that the Professor and Magneto don't even call their students by the same names. The Professor is always calling people by their given names, at least until his students work up the courage to correct him. Magneto always asks, the first time you're sitting in his classroom studying history or French or are out on the playing field or in the gymnasium trying to tell yourself that it's well known that Magneto promised the Professor that he wouldn't let anyone die in phys ed, what you call yourself.

|| Yes, this is that brilliant. I'm only halfway through, and I just want to soak in it. AU where, STILL post-beach divorce, Erik and Charles are  lovers and best friends and run a school. The author states that this is not a fix-it, but an AU, and funnily enough, I get that distinction.

It's one thing to be a woman holding a doctorate and having to deal with the sneers and comments and ruined experiments and stolen data (not that Charlotte has much of a problem with the latter two, telepathy being what it is). It's quite another to be a woman holding a doctorate and know each dark, razor-filled thought behind every cruel smirk and mocking laugh, to feel the resentment like black oil pouring off them whenever she passes.

After defending her thesis to a lecture hall full of people just looking for an excuse to throw her out (and she knew it was true, she could feel it, and every speck of discipline and control she possessed wasn't enough shut out such an immense tidal wave of it), going for a drink is an immense relief. She and Raven choose a bar a long way from the university, far from the thoughts that had clogged her mind like weeds in a propeller, and where Charlotte is finally – finally – able to relax her guard somewhat.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a spouse -- or the nearest set of curtains to hide behind, if you were to believe Mr Charles Xavier. Little does he know that he himself will soon put test to that very truth.<br />

Fusion with P&P--very, very much so. This is basically the book/movie/series reinterpreted through different names. However, there are some gorgeous moments--someone, pru, I think, mentioned that this includes the HOTTEST helping someone into a carriage moment ever, and that is QUITE. TRUE.

"Uh huh," Raven agrees. "So, I'm going to assume by all that, that you got your clothes destabilised."

Charles will not look sadly down at himself again. Also, he will accept that today was his own fault and no one else's. "Something like that, yes."

"And there were no pants?" Raven asks, as if they can often be found randomly lying around, in case there's a shortage. Or an emergency.

"There were no pants," he says firmly. "I looked."

This is incredible. It is hella sweet. It has wonderful descriptions of what it is like to be high. It has Erik and Charles cheating at chess! But best of all, it does a un-fucking-believable job of exploring what weed would do to their abilities, especially taking into account Charles's privilige and Erik's trust issues. To wit:

When he blinks his way back to normal vision, he's holding himself up on shaky arms, high off his ass and then some, and it is vitally important that he start taking clothes off now. Charles looks up at him with indulgent, serenely wondrous eyes and follows him with lazy interest as he rolls to one side and starts undressing. Charles interrupts at intervals to kiss him, and, when Erik is peeling off his socks, says, "Oh. Am I making you do that?"

Erik pauses to think, makes it far enough back to remember that his boxers are a ruinous disaster, and says, "Probably not."

pidgeoned: fic: this constant state of war (charles/erik, pg-13, 3700 words)
Life at the mansion wasn’t all that difficult, but it wasn’t completely easy, either.<br />
<br />
There were the kids to look after, and when they weren’t trying to sleep with each other or breaking family heirlooms, they were emotionally unstable and brimming with insecurity. Alex made it a point to badger Hank because he had feelings for him, feelings he could not name, he said, deeply rooted feelings that made his heart balloon with strange joy, while Sean, who was hugely unpopular with girls and cried about it every morning into his cereal bowl, wailing, even, kept coming to Erik for advice on his lack of a love life.<br />
<br />
“I think it’s the hair,” Sean said, one time, “I need a new look.”<br />
<br />
As silly and fluffy as that opening promises. The POV is Erik's and so we also get hesitance, distrust, unease mixed in with the good--mostly in response to. Lovely.

"This is ridiculous crack (except it has bits that aren't.) AU wherein everyone lives and remains on the same side, and I do not apologize for that element, but I do apologize for everything else."<br />
<br />
I love everything that this fic chooses to be, and the same for the photo it's based on. The one where Charles is stuck in a tree.

nevoreiel: Fic: OCA2 (or You're Groovy, Let's Screw) [Charles/Erik; NC-17]
Drunken, awkward, first-time sex. Giggle-worthy--not scorchingly hot to me, but hilariously awkward, and the ending is priceless.

"Azazel takes them away in a whoosh of hot air and smoke, and he deposits them by the side of the road in the middle of a desert, the dry land stretching scorched on all sides for as far as the eye can see.

This is when Erik starts to run.

|| It's about running, and knowing what is and what isn't, it's about burnt skin, and the glowing pink that's underneath.

1stclass_kink: Prompt Post: Our House, in the Middle of Our Street
An alternate universe (they're all not mutants, just human) where Charles is a social worker who fosters troubled kids, and one day he meets Erik, an ex-druggie/ex-convict (or whatever else, I leave it to anon to figure out which demons are chasing him) who reluctantly agrees to stay for only a while, but ends up staying for good and helping Charles to raise the kids. Awkward parenting ensues!<br />
<br />
OHOHO--the one where I'm pretty sure Erik is only pretending he doesn't speak English, and Charles is a little bit of a dunce.

cymbalism: fic up: the beginning of knowledge
You know how it's abundantly clear Erik and Charles have slept together within, oh, 36 hours of knowing each other in the movie? This is my take on that deleted scene. Charles is drawn in so entirely it's as though magnetic force affects him, too. It's more than expected—intoxicating, alarming. Mutation in all its forms has fascinated Charles for years, but he never dared even imagine a thing like Erik.<br />
<br />
Excellent. Tight, tension-filled, and flawless characterization. Ever since reading seperis's meta, I'm finding pieces that have Charles using his telepathy like breathing feel like a personal metric for characterization, and this does it WELL. This just might be personal canon.

pidgeoned: fic: this land is mine but i'll let you rule (charles/erik, pg, 3122 words)
Charles and Erik travel across America recruiting mutants. Expect a total disregard for proper characterization and canon.<br />
<br />
Basically--but the slow burn of this is interesting enough, and really, the movie shows us Wolverine turning them down, but there would've been others, and how would they handle that?--that I enjoyed. Charles just seemed a little more qualm-y about his telepathy than I imagine him.

1stclass_kink: Prompt Post: ROUND THREE
Erik is kneeling on the bed, resting back on his heels, clad in nothing but his own skin. Charles takes a moment to appreciate the view before his gaze snaps to the strange object held in the other man's hands. "Is that, is that a camera?" he asks incredulously.<br />
<br />
"Like it, do you?" And there's that ever present smirk on Erik's face as he holds the camera out admiringly, knowing all too well that it must appeal to the scientist in Charles. He can't help being a little captivated by it though, it's too big to be classed as portable but it's certainly an improvement on Kodak's latest creation.<br />

oceansex: [fic post] Between Rage and Serenity
“I saw me, worming my way into a place you don’t think I belong.”

The aftermath of the hup-yep-they're-totally-in-love scene. You know which one. (Also, I'm kind of amused that I've had to create two entirely new tags for the type of sex in this fandom: hot-fast-burning-yes-you-yes-you-you-you and the way we're all obsessed with Charles's love of Erik's mind.)

Charles knows there are ways he could be better, things he could be making more of an effort to understand. Raven, for example: but he has promised to stay out of her thoughts. Denied this, he knows, he has trouble comprehending the nature of her preoccupation with her mutation, with her body—his own body is something of an afterthought, just a vehicle for his mind. This doesn't mean he has divorced himself from it—he takes care of himself, eats well, has a long run every morning before breakfast, tries to minimize his vices. He likes sex, likes the soft yield of another body beneath his, but he's never been desperate for it. He's never understood how it can ruin a man.

Alex isn't really surprised when Agent Lehnsherr finds him in the old squat.

UM YES. Close-to-canon AU: a couple decades later, a mutant registry involved, and Erik is an agent with a kick-ass task team, but they're all still mutants, and it's awesome. Plotty and characterization for the win.

10/6, up to part FIFTY-FIVE, which I haven't read since 9. However, the AuthorAnon says that the total, final version will be up at AO3 within the next weeks (probably), so I'm super tempted to leave it and then read it in one crazy sitting.

Call Me By His Name - sinuous_curve - X-Men: First Class (2011), X-Men (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Charles wakes from the absence of noise.

There is an empty space in his room, beside his bed. Not quiet as in an abandoned room, but utterly, featurelessly blank. Like a box made of unblemished, impenetrable metal and Charles knows before he opens his eyes.

|| YES. YES. YES. This is beautifully written--recognizably the Charles and Erik from the movie (and their wonderful flashes of depth) and the way they fit and do not. It is this that lets me know the epic of hurt and wonder is out there. It is coming.

Half-Hard to Rock! - Inner Eye
Alex and Hank are close to some kind of breaking point. Charles keeps an eye on them. Erik sees what Charles can't. Involves non-con voyeurism, and dubious consent frottage, but nothing maliciously, or power-motivated intended, as I read it. Mostly just an excuse for resolving two of the epic cases of unresolved sexual tension in the movie.

This is delightful--Erik has to repeat the day on the beach until he stops being an asshole. The author has a great interpretation of the possible iterations, the psychological toll it would take, and of "asshole." One of the best things I've read in this fandom so far.

"Are you always this nerve-wracking, or are you putting on a special performance for my benefit?" Charles asks, sipping at his (excellent) tea.

"I'm usually at least this nerve-wracking," Erik says, sounding thoroughly unapologetic. "But sometimes in different ways. At the moment, I'm doing 'quietly nerve-wracking.' I've been known to throw some impressive temper tantrums, though, and I do take special pride in my ability to start bar fights. As we've already discussed."

I, Charles thinks to himself, am about to make an incredibly bad decision.

Oh, I love so many things about this--parallels with the movieverse, Erik and Charles's mutual admiration society, MOIRA--and am excited for the continuation.

(TBH, I'm still waiting for the epic romance of hurt and exquisite characterization and development I know fandom has in it, but I realize we're in the early stages. Goddamn, I'm not sure I've ever gotten in this early before.)

10/6, Up to Part 15 on the kinkmeme, and 2/3 on the author's new blog (and_backagain). Again, the author promises it hasn't been abandoned (as of late September, so not that long ago). LKJOGJDL:JDS

Erik has had Charles in his head before, but not like this.

For this trope, I'm really, really, enjoying the development. It's not the immediate--no, they're not really sure what's happening, no one's vomiting, it's just weird. Also, interesting characterization of Erik. Softer edges than I think he probably would have, but I especially like the way he interacts with Raven.

More bittersweet than hijinky; Raven keeps in touch with the old group. Scattered other unsent letters--interesting so far.

It's the first thing he thinks when he thuds dully to the ground, feeling sand beneath his hands as he moves to lift Charles into his arms.<br />

He's suddenly, viscerally glad he's wearing the helmet.<br />

In more coherent news, this is one where Erik doesn't leave after the beach. Horrible, horrible spoilers if you haven't seen the movie, yet, but the anon does a great job of making a very fluffy not-in-character prompt something that's a delight to read. Definitely hurt/comfort.

“My friend,” he calls Erik, as if the ability to name him so—as if Erik himself—is a gift Charles longs to cherish ‘til old age.

Erik realizes, too late, his mind isn’t the only thing that’s betrayed him.

The characterization in this is killer. As is the smut. Oh my god, internets, I just saw First Class, and I NEED Erik/Charles LIKE I NEED BREATHING, PLZ TO GET ON THAT FANDOM, UNNNNNNNNNNNF.
