Incy Wincy Spider - Chapter 1 - by Tawabids - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Summary:

Erik Lehnsherr is a renowned homicide detective, with his husband Charles at home and his partner on the job, Moira MacTaggert. When a twisted serial killer starts targeting mutants, Erik and Moira are the perfect team for the job, especially since Erik himself is the mutant poster-boy of an NYPD trying to improve their image.

But what they don't yet know is that the serial killer is an old soul out of Erik's past, and his next move is to pull Charles into his web.

Summary:

Charles makes a New Year's Resolution:

“No more straight men,” Charles repeated as he began scrolling through the apartment directory for Emma’s name. “No more futility. No more pointless hoping and heartbreak. In 2013, I never want to hear the words ‘exception,’ ‘experimenting’ or ‘phase.’ If, God forbid, I hear ‘bicurious’ even once, I may take a hostage.”

Then he goes into the party, and Erik is there.

Written Legacy - by Roxie Ann (pluvial_poetry) - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Excerpt:
Charles sets his papers against Erik's back and begins to write, not yet fully formed theories, still only another hypothesis of what the future might hold for mutantkind, all the wonderful and strange ways that genetics will both separate and combine us as a race. The pointed steel nib of Charles' pen must scratch against Erik's skin, the thin sheaf of papers meager protection as Charles continues to use him as an impromptu desk, but Charles feels no sense of discomfort from Erik's mind.

If anything the opposite, Charles finds as he skims over the surface of Erik's mind. It takes an effort to block Erik's thoughts and keep them separate from his own at the best of times, as Erik had come to realize early on in their relationship. Charles rarely bothers when they're together like this, Erik wouldn't have it any other way. He would not have Charles hide himself away, not here, in their shared bed.

Paralyzer - Chapter 1 - by Yahtzee - fandom X-Men - All Media Types, X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Author's Summary:
In 1965, Erik Lehnsherr has infiltrated the NYPD for his own purposes -- but his powers make him a brilliant detective. Yet that's not why FBI agent Charles Xavier has sought him out. It's because the mysterious killer they're both trying to find is murdering people like them: other mutants.

Their search for a madman binds them together. Their inner demons may tear them apart. But the greatest danger comes when the killer they're looking for looks back ...

Ornithologies - Chapter 1 - by tahariel - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Excerpt:

It’s bewildering, this matter of being mortal, and mammalian, and human.

He had spent the first few days on Earth confused and awkward as a newborn, this strange new fleshy body making demands of him he did not know how to interpret - that he feed it, water it, empty it of waste (or, as he found to his disgust, it would empty itself, as it chose.) His spirit self had slammed into the ground - into meathood - with the force of Jupiter’s gravity behind it, like being sucked into a black hole, slowly becoming heavier and thicker and more solid as he fell, comet-like, from the heavens. Burnt by the rushing wind and stung by the contemptuous stars as he passed them.

In a 19th century Britain, the wealthy Xavier-Marko couple pay Erik, a hired killer, to put their disabled son Charles "out of his misery".

A Very Special Episode - by winterhill - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Erik Lehnsherr is surprisingly ordinary when he’s not douching it up at an awards night or spilling spoilers to Youtube. He offers me a scotch, and then stretches out on the couch to talk. There’s no sign of a PA or hangers-on anywhere; Lehnsherr infamously refuses to employ assistants unless he’s on a film set, and even then he does so reluctantly.

“I prefer to do things myself,” he says. “And what I don’t want to do, Emma does.”

He’s talking about Emma Frost, his agent and long-time friend. Erik and Emma have been romantically linked dozens of times across his career, a claim which Lehnsherr vehemently rejects.

“I’m gay,” he reminds me. “While I appreciate that Emma has fantastic tits, she’s missing other vital parts of anatomy. Total deal-breaker.”

“You choose very action-oriented roles, and you’ve never brought a boyfriend to anything,” I tell him. “Do you think that’s why people match you with women?”

“I don’t want to play what Hollywood thinks is gay,” says Lehnsherr. “Then I’d have a choice of dying of AIDS; being ashamed of my sexuality until I just find the right guy; or being someone’s sassy best friend. I’d prefer to shoot aliens and bring down terrorists. Fuck you. You want me to bring a boyfriend somewhere? Fine. You’re my date to the Oscars.”

“Done,” I reply, hoping I won’t have to put out. He looks like a biter.

“I could,” he says, leaning forward. “I could do something all about sexuality, but it would have to be the right thing.”

“I hear Hasbro is looking for guests for their new run of My Little Pony,” I tell him, mostly to watch him explode.

He doesn’t disappoint.

"Oh for fuck’s sake. I will work for Hasbro the moment the Sparkly Hooves pony comes out of the closet. Until then, give me a break."

Took Me By Surprise and Then - by thehoyden - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011), The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
After the second surgery in New York, Charles doesn’t anticipate anyone keeping vigil by his bedside. He’s instructed Alex and Sean to stay with Hank in Westchester. Erik and Raven are likely halfway around the world, and even if they had been nearby, he doesn’t expect either of them to come and hold his hand.

The only person he expects less is the one actually there, folded into the hard chair like he’s completely comfortable, all of his attention on a pad of graphing paper propped up against his knee as he sketches something with precise strokes of a pen.

“Tony?” Charles croaks.

Tony Stark’s eyes flick over, and he smiles at Charles, and oh — it’s the same smile, like they’re still ten and going to sneak off from one of their parents’ parties to do something phenomenally stupid that will probably result in property damage. “Hey there,” Tony says softly. “You don’t call, you don’t write—”

“You're out of touch, Charles,” Erik says. “Folk music is the in thing these days. It's practically groovy.”

Charles is beginning to wish he'd never heard the word.

“I got a lead on our man,” he says hastily.

“Good,” Erik says, looking sharkishly pleased. “Almost makes the last hour worthwhile.”

“I thought you fitted in rather well.” He knows he sounds jealous and that makes it even worse.

“I'm sure you could pass for a hep cat,” Erik teases him, “especially if you keep stealing my clothes.”

“That won't happen again,” Charles says stiffly. He can feel that he's blushing again, which is seriously annoying. This is officially the worst recruiting expedition ever.

Curve Fitting - by kianspo - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Charles likes to pick up strays. His mother cites non-existing allergies and never allows him to keep the abandoned kittens or puppies, instead making the servants take them to an animal shelter. Charles visits them regularly and is torn between happiness and sadness when someone adopts his former charges.

However, one day he drags in not another street cat, but a shivering, frightened Raven. She's dirty and hungry and still wearing bruises her drunk of a father left on her arms and back. Sharon Xavier isn’t thrilled, but then she wasn’t thrilled even when she gave birth to her own child, so it’s not something that can be held against her.

Raven stays.

A year later, Charles stumbles over Erik, who’s trying to survive on the street.

Modern AU. Erik M. Lehnsherr is a private man, a jeweler that’s just looking for a studio to work in. But floorspace in New York is limited, so he ends up sharing a space with a beautiful mutant painter named Raven. Above them is a huge furry blue physicist, i.e. Mad scientist, and a glassblower that breaks half of what he makes when he starts laughing.

Drawn into their intricacies, Erik finds himself not only with friends but something that’s starting to frighteningly resemble a family. Then enter one, Charles Xavier; geneticist, lecturer, telepath, and mutant rights activist. Suddenly Erik is faced with dealing with a past he’s trying to forget and feelings he’s never had before.

They were in Maine, and the water was cold, and the air was cold, and they raced to the rocks of the winter-black coast, and they slowed, then, when the ocean was in sight. They breathed long, and they breathed deep; Erik bent, rested his hands on his knees, and Charles could see the way that his back rose and fell, could see the condensation from his panting breaths. Erik lifted his head, then, and smiled, and a wave broke behind him—dashed itself against the rock, scattered itself into sea-foam and the hush of falling water.

marina: So, a while ago I watched the second X Men movie for Erik/Charles continuity insights. I am here to bring you my (delicious) findings!
Wow, I have to hand it to First Class, they went ABOVE AND BEYOND in preserving the continuity in this verse in terms of Charles and Erik's characterizations. I mean the later movies are a JOY to watch if you're only there for those two guys and the in jokes and symbolism and so on of their later relationship.

-One thing where this is manifested is in how one of Erik's greatest joys in life is to be a giant troll. No, really, THAT IS WHAT HE DOES FOR FUN. ...

I think chess between two telepaths is the perfect metaphor and the perfect teaching aid. Because chess is a long, arduous game, where people are constantly thinking up strategy, and for a telepath to be able to play it and not cheat once takes stamina and perseverance and self control. Because cheating would be easy, but then there's no point in playing the game.

Nobody would ever revel and take as much interest in Erik's power as Shaw and Charles had. The most obvious qualitative difference in those two men's interests being that only one of them extended the interest to Erik, the person.

That same day, Charles told Erik about one of his very own tricks. About how he'd badly twisted his ankle one winter, when he really, really wanted to skate. So he did. Through another kid. He hadn't made the kid skate and then picked up on what the kid was feeling, oh no. Charles' mind was in there, seeing through the kid's eyes, dictating the action.

 It was a lengthy, awkward silence, the one that fell after Charles finished that story.

"So you can wear people like suits," Erik finally said.

Irene Adler (Destiny) | Dimestore Dames
There are a lot of things I find awkward about Destiny. Like her soul-crushingly creepy alien-head mask, for one. And the fact that X-Men writers have never tried to smooth out her timeline, so she still officially met Mystique as an adult in the late nineteenth century, making her at least over a century old when she died in battle in 1989. Major props for being one of the only elderly women supervillains, though. ...

What’s not awkward: that Irene serves as half of one of the longest lasting couples in the Marvel universe. The fact she and Raven are both women makes their deep, emotionally intense romance all the more poignant, considering the lengths it took to establish them as lovers. At the time, the Comic Code Authority didn’t allow overt references to homosexuality, and in response editor-in-chief Jim Shooter became a homophobic Scarlet Witch, whispering, “No more gay people” and making them all disappear from Marvel. Chris Claremont went to a lot of effort to hint at the romance at just the right pitch that readers might tilt their head a little but an editor wouldn’t immediately red-pen the lines. By the time they could be officially deemed a couple, it was considered one of the worst kept secrets in comics.

...one of the coolest things about Destiny is that she was technically only alive and active in comics for about a decade, but she’s one of the most important mutants to ever live.

“What have you done this week?” Mr Lehnsherr asks, looking bored. The desk is covered in staples today; Hank doesn’t ask. “Decided to develop a cocaine habit?”

“No, sir,” Hank tells him. “I’ve done nothing this week.”

Mr Lehnsherr nods; Hank can’t work out if this is good or bad, but he suspects that Mr Lehnsherr enjoys keeping his students guessing.

“Well then,” he says, reaching for a box file and looking inside, “I can give you a questionnaire on self-harming, or a quiz to test your drug knowledge while subtly trying to brainwash you into believing that all drugs will lead you to die homeless and celibate under a bridge.”

Hank considers his options and then says: “you’re mentoring Alex Summers.”

[In a post-apocalyptic landscape, two mutant nations have battled for years. On one side, the Shadow King and Emma Frost. On the other, the telepaths of Genosha. In a final ploy, the Genoshans send Charles Xavier to breach the Shadow King's defenses.

Long, well-plotted, and tense. -L]

Tigers Need Pockets Too - by PragmaticHominid - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011), X-Men (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Alternative Title: Raven's Breasts Destroy Mutant Society.

The one where life in the Brotherhood becomes basically one endless naked orgy, and Erik is just in the corner feeling really uncomfortable and wondering what he did to deserve all this.

His solution? Talk Raven back into wearing clothing, so the Brotherhood can get back to the serious business of Mutant liberation.

I have so many feelings about Charles-and-Raven. He’s honestly my favorite, but it can’t have been easy being his best friend, adopted sister, only confidante re mutanthood, and probably everything else you’d end up piling onto your interactions with the only person you could really trust.

And she held up her end of it for a long time without getting completely taken over by Charles. How much force of personality do you want to bet she brought to the relationship? How many times did she tug him in the direction she wanted to go? He may have had all of the advantages of wealth and masculine privilege, but she could have left at any time. I think the fear of being alone with one’s mutant-y weirdness weighed a lot more heavily for him than it did for her*. And I think he bent to her more than once (take that figuratively or literally, I don’t mind) only to revert every. damn. time. to paternalistic semi-neglect as soon as she let him.

* Charles reassures Erik he’s not alone. Yeah, I think Erik felt alone, but also, projection much?

...who better for Charles to experiment with in a totally uninhibited and pity-free fashion? Since Charles is an Historical Figure, Jack would do it for the greater good (as well as the thrill of starfucking)...

Oh, another justification for X-Men/Whoniverse crossovers: the books of Destiny. You cannot tell me the Time Agency didn’t stick their noses into that.

OH MY GOD. Y’all, my very oldest XMFC WIP is post-Cuba Charles/Jack. Unfortunately, I got permanently mired in thoughts of what Jack was probably like in 1962, i.e. chilly, bitter, and a total bastard in a not-at-all charming or magnificent way. Really, the best thing to do is pretend Children of Earth never happened, JFC.

Anyway, let me toss a few thoughts at you: ...

Once More, With Mutants - by so_shhy - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Raven: Every single day, the same position,
Fighting for supremacy.
Thought that I could say I’d found my mission,
And I would be free,
But this isn’t me.
I thought leaving home would make me grown up
But I should have known
That it would still be a deception
My life’s a façade,
Homesickness keeps catching me off-guard.

[In the background Erik tap-dances across the shot. Raven jerks a thumb gloomily towards him.]

Raven: Once I used to think that his magnetic
Powers made him just my type,
Now I kinda feel he’s just pathetic,
Not worth all the hype,
Angel: All he does is gripe,
Raven: Wanna take a swipe.

etirabys: Sharp Teeth Pretty Teeth [1/1]
"I promise I don't want it," Charles said. "Of course I want you to be free."

The selkie looked hellishly frustrated. He kept holding out his pelt, making little faces at Charles.

He looked all of eighteen years old. He was adorable. Just as adorable as he'd been yesterday, when Charles had thrown him the little fish he'd caught without knowing he was the nine-century old legend you got told about as soon as your stepped into the village and saw all the seal-themed restaurants. You got pamphlets stuffed in your duffel bag. Got invited to the Seal Express. Was told about the environmental protection conventions that were taking place. Hawaiian monk seals and whales, that sort of thing. Was fed the local legend five times a day from different people who wanted to squeeze more money out of a tourist. It might have worked if Charles had been looking to entertain a small gaggle of children that he did not have.

Anyway. The point was- legend. It wasn't supposed to bark at you and roll over in the sand- adorable adorable adorable- and then come up to the front door of your rented cottage the next day and try to seduce you. Ham-handedly.

[Author takes a rather free approach to punctuation and syntax in this fic, but the narrative is full of energy and charm. -L]

Spit and Polish - by sabinelagrande - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
The first time Erik saw her in them, he looked at her like his brain had just shut down entirely, circuits completely overloaded. "What are you trying to do, Raven?" he asked; it looked like he was trying to be accusatory, but it ended up coming out plaintive.

She looked at him in confusion. "Am I doing something?"

He licked his lips. "Those shoes have metal heels."

1. Go to page 7 of your most recent WiP
2. Count seven lines down
3. Copy and paste the next seven lines of text

Okay, my most recent WIP isn’t going to be seven pages long even when it’s finished, so I scrolled down to the epic 1949 AU. Charles, who’s the speaker in the first paragraph, is an Army captain. Erik has been with the French Foreign Legion since 1939-ish. His family moved to France before the war, but some of them were killed for being Jewish anyway (I haven’t worked out the details, but it’s something to do with Vel d’Hiv and the Drancy internment camp). Anyway, the lines from my WIP: ...

Stars Hide Your Fires - by ariadnes_string - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Author's Summary:

Suddenly, Charles seemed to notice what Erik was holding. He came nearer, put his left hand between Erik’s on the birch rod. Time to let go, Erik told himself. But he didn’t. And so they stayed like that, both holding it, so close Erik could feel the iron eddying in Charles’s blood. The thing that was always between them snapped and quivered like a banner in a gale.
