FIC REC TIIIME

GO READ FIREFLY AND THE TINMAN.

prompt: Every mutation can be easily detected by a casual observer. For example in this world, Erik’s skin has a metallic sheen, and his hair is like particularly soft wire. Charles has glowing eyes and fingertips, and so on.

Since all mutants can be easily detected, they are rounded up by the government and put into camps when they’re young. These camps aren’t concentration camps, per se, just high security institutions where they’re studied, but not mistreated. They don’t have freedom, but other than that, they aren’t bad off.

its hella interesting. lskjlfjlfkjdsflkjds

X-Men First Class Cherik Fic Recs March 1 - April 4
As you all know, I have a twitter feed for daily recs, and a DW for a bi/tri-weekly list. However, for tumblr accessibility, I also have a tumblr rec just for the X-Men fics, because apparently I can’t get enough of this fandom. Jan 1-5 here | Jan 5-10 here | Jan 10-15 here | Jan 15-25 here | Jan 25-Feb 1 | Jan 5-10 here | Jan 10-15 here | Jan 15-25 here | Jan 25-Feb 1 | Feb 1-14 |  Genre: Angst  | Feb 14 - Mar 1 | Telepathy focus recs | Trilogy verse recs | Top 20 Favourite Fics Part 1
“Everyday Love in Stockholm” - THIS FIC IS COMPLETE OH MY GOD MY LIFE IS GREAT
“I Don’t Want To Wake Up On My Own Anymore” - Erik thinks it’s disturbing how easily Charles lets his guard down. (Or, four times Charles fell asleep on Erik and one time Erik fell asleep on Charles.) [fic summary]
“Paralyzer” - Suddenly one of my favourite fics of all time, this fic is an Alternate Universe where both Erik and Charles are in law enforcement, Erik a jaded detective and Charles an FBI profiler, working together to catch a mutant killer.
“The Feel-Good Drag” - PWP - Erik and Charles have a sort of… bet going on.
“Sacrifice” - PWP - Erik is the sacrificial lamb to a culture who sacrifices in much nicer ways than most.
“More Than You Think You Are” - Warnings: non-con - “You and I, we can help Erik. You can take away his memories. Take away his pain. Make him happy. Together, we can bring the humans to their knees.”
“Trust” - The aftermath of the Cuban Beach in a reality where Erik and Raven stay.
“Wake Up and Smell The Pancakes” - The Erik who left and the one who didn’t, suddenly living each others’ lives.
“The Dating Game” - Charles and Raven have a silly competition at a bar, and Erik saves Charles from being the loser.
“Building Bridges” - When Erik met Charles, it wasn’t love at first sight. It wasn’t love at second sight either. Actually, it takes a hell of a lot of looking before Erik is ready to admit that maybe, just maybe, the guy’s alright. [fic summary]
“Beneath The Surface” - Erik is kind of a wereshark except not really a were because he can transform at will, and Charles is the marine biologist who loves him.
“Sex and Telepathy” - Charles has sex with Audrey Hepburn, but the important part is when he has sex with Erik.
“Winter In July” - Fluff fic featuring little Ororo Munroe holding Erik hostage in the Xavier mansion.
“Downtown” - Pretty Woman AU with Erik as the really really attractive prostitute Charles accidentally picks up. It’s true what they say - romance is literally around the corner!
“Not-so Good Advice” - Charles’ childhood shows itself in tiny ways, but it becomes obvious with time.
“Neither Rhyme nor Reason” - A Stark Trek AU where Erik is a Vulcan and Charles is a half betazoid half human telepath. It is, of course, awesome.
“1 2 3 4 Tell Me That You Love Me More” - Gen -Raven on Charles, and everything he will always mean to her.
“Condonare” - Part of a series - Hannibal meets a telepath named Charles Xavier, who, despite himself, he grows attached to.
“Lightning In a Cloudless Sky” - Part of a Series - Millions of years in the future, Charles Xavier still has a habit of taking in strays. This time, however, instead of a mansion he has a spaceship.
“Exegesis” - WIP - Erik had heard legends of it, Babylon the abomination, the home to those who denied the godhead of En Sabah Nur. Sebastian had gone on endlessly about the City and the heretics who had protected it, loving descriptions from the chronicles and his own imagination concerning the destruction visiting upon it and how the Savieri had been made to pay for their blasphemy and had perished along with the humans they sheltered. [summary from fic]
“No Thanks, Atticus Finch” - WIP - Erik and Charles are two lawyers on either sides of a divorce case. Except it’s not that simple.
“Burn The World and Build On The Ashes” - WIP - Warnings: character death - Erik is brutal, despite having achieved his vengeance, and after Charles is shot on the beach, makes choices that separate him and Charles. When Charles keeps popping up and trying to foil his plans, however, Erik decides he’s had enough.
“The Deconstruction of Falling Stars” - WIP - Erik is a turian, and even though I really don’t know what that means, the fic makes it believable anyway.
“History Repeating” - WIP - honestly one of my favourite fics this fic explores Charles and Erik throughout different time periods, telling their stories, both solemn and heartwarming, humorous or tragic. From their caveman days to what may be 1962.
“Mind The Change” - WIP - Alpha/omega verse where alphas are rare, with absolutely no civil liberties. It’s only natural that most of them try to run. Erik is part of a special task force that retrieves them. One day, he is requested by Raven Darkholme to retrieve her omega brother.
“Omega Online” - WIP - “It’s hopeless,” Charles says. “I’m too distracted. Usually when I feel like this I just go to a bar and get drunk and find some nice alpha—” Charles breaks off as Erik enters the room, his furious expression evidence he’s definitely overheard that last bit. Charles wonders if maybe he’s getting an eye twitch of his own. “And ask him to escort me home,” he continues seamlessly, “as it is of course quite dangerous at night, and I would not wish to be mugged.” [excerpt]
“O Captain, My Captor” - WIP - Charles is sold to slavery by his parents when they can’t pay their debt, and he is given to Erik Lehnsherr, a pirate, who then proceeds to try and beat the fight out of him. Except in the moments where he’s almost tender.
“Space Jam” - WIP - Prince Charles Xavier is Deputy Commander of the TEF Heartsteel and the newest mission they’ve been assigned starts out less than desirable and quickly goes downhill from there. It’s alright, though, he’ll cope. It doesn’t help, though, that he’s in unrequited love with his best friend and Commander of the Heartsteel, War-Prince Erik Lehnsherr. [fic summary]
“Start a War” - WIP - Erik is an adroid whose model was recalled and destroyed years ago, so when Charles Xavier finds him, the least he could do was not turn him in to be destroyed.
“Put on a Slow, Dumb Show For You” - WIP - Charles owns a coffee shop, Erik is a corporate lawyer (and owns some really nice suits). Things get a bit hazy from there. [fic summary] Except of course Charles has trust issues and Erik really shouldn’t be trusted, and coffee shop owner and lawyer is really not an accurate job description.
(*) FUNNY THAT I WAS SO SLOW IN PUTTING THIS REC LIST UP THAT BY THE TIME I WAS DONE SOME FICS WHICH WERE WIP HAD BEEN COMPLETED.

The Ultimate Fic Rec: Summer Edition Pt.1

czarnyma:

See The Ultimate Fic Rec Masterpost for more fanfic goodness.

These are all completed fics. I actually feel kind of bad and guilty for reccing some WIPs during my first fic rec because some them ended up being abandoned. I know how frustrating it feels when you fall in love with a story and suddenly it just leaves you hanging, it makes you want to lash out and sob (*cough* Island, Island *cough*) until you feel numb. This will eventually result to pouring out your feelings here on Tumblr. But in case you want me to rec WIPs, please tell me? Pop a message in my ask, I’ll be happy to rec some of the WIPs that I have been stalking…
… and look at me I am blabbing, STOP ME!

So, on with the fics!

X-Men First Class Fic Recs January 5-10
As you all know, I have a twitter feed for daily recs, and a DW for a bi/tri-weekly list. However, for tumblr accessibility, I also have a tumblr rec just for the X-Men fics, because apparently I can’t get enough of this fandom. Jan 1-5 here.
“Walling In or Walling Out” - I decided that every time I recced, I’d choose one fic that was my favourite among all of them. This one would probably be it for this week, because it’s just so adorable. It’s an AU that has Erik and Charles living in the same apartment building.
“The Noise” - or maybe this is the one. Except it isn’t as feel good as the previous one, and I’m a sucker for happy fic. Charles goes missing. When Erik finds him, his name is Wesley Gibson, and he’s changed.
“An Accident of Circumstance” - Vampire fic, you have been warned. Charles is still an academic, and Erik is still as cynical as ever, but instead of being mutants, Erik is a vampire who is given the gift of choosing his first childe… Charles is the human he chooses. 
“Celestial Navigation” - Charles and Erik are recruiting in New York City. This fic incorporates Charles’ telepathy into his daily life. If you’re fragile about X-Men, then you have to be warned that this is a pre-divorce one-shot, so you’ll have to assume that unless this takes a turn for the AU, there was one road this ends in. Still, charmingly written and pretty feel-good for an X-Men fic.
“The First of Many” - Christmas fic, so naturally shmoopy. Erik needs to find Charles the perfect gift. Except, what do you give someone who already has it all? 
“An Act Too Often Neglected” - The one where Logan watches Erik pant after Charles like a dog. Fix it, which is 50% why it’s been recced. There needs to be more happy endings in this fandom. The other 50% is the fact it’s written by thehoyden.
“I Ain’t Scared of Lightning” - An amazing fic that explores an X-Men universe that has a slightly changed Charles, who works for the CIA after Sebastian Shaw takes his sister, Raven. Definitely worth reading.
“72 Hours” - Not a fix it! Though I thought it was. Erik wants to leave some people in the Xavier School For Gifted. But first, he wants to see if it’s suitable. He and Charles clash.
“But The Cat Came Back” - slight crossover in that Charles and Erik both work for the British government under Mycroft Holmes. Erik comes home and finds Charles waiting to dump him. Later, he finds out that Charles has gone missing. Coincidentally, he also acquires a cat.
“Of Great Minds and Tea” - short short short. I got into Sherlock BBC and tested the waters of its fandom by reading crossover fic. I found this and enjoyed it. John comes home one day to find Sherlock’s only friend (other than himself, of course) drinking tea.
“Twice Over” - WIP - Fem!Charles and pregnancy warnings. In this fic, Charlotte Xavier meets the father of her child while she is pretending to be a woman named Magda. His name… is Magnus.
“The World of Make-Believe” - hideously WIP - and by ‘hideously’ I mean it’s only begun, with one chapter. However, it’s intriguing and will definitely get people hooked. Warnings for reality bending and various time leaps.

The Ultimate Fic Rec: FINISHED FICS Pt. 2

czarnyma:

Read Part 1 HERE.

Yey! I have finally made a fic rec post. Here you will find fics ranging from fluff to smut to MPREGS to PWPs to shameless pr0n to the epic. These fics are some of the stories that I read and enjoyed with infinite amount of feels. (This could be considered as my early Christmas gift to the fandom since: 1. I’d rather read fics than write them & 2. I draw but sad to say I don’t have a scanner I’m poor as fuck… so, yeah). 

Daycare ‘Verse – Seriously? You haven’t read this? If you say YES, then you’re missing on a A LOT. I do not know where to begin describing this fic, every time I reread this I just wish that these two wonderful AU! Charles & Erik do exist, they’re like the gay version of Marshall & Lily from HIMYM. But seriously, READ THIS NOW.

Interdisciplinary Studies - When Charles Xavier signed up to be a TA at the beginning of his graduate studies, he’d expected to be assigned to help his favourite professor from undergrad, Moira MacTaggart, with Biology 101. Instead he finds he’s been requested by Professor Lehnsherr, a man he’s never met and who teaches mechanical engineering - a subject Charles has never studied. 

And it Goes Like This – this fic is AKA the Coffeeshop AU where Charles is a barista and Erik works for the FBI (I think? Or the police? I can’t remember!). Erik has this huge crush on Charles and that’s why he frequents the coffeeshop where Charles works.

One Night, Peace - Erik and Charles aren’t on the same side, not anymore. But the night that New York legalizes gay marriage, they set aside their differences for just a little while. Angst and some fluff. Set post-X2.

Come As You Are – Charles volunteers at his family’s hospital and sometimes reads stories for the patients. Erik is in a coma (he’s a teenager at this time) and every day Charles comes over to read Erik some Jane Austen romance. Years later… Erik becomes a doctor and is still haunted by the soothing voice that told him stories from years ago. THIS FIC… yes, THIS IS THE FIC. Ito na talaga.

Shatter Proof – Erik and Charles have been friends for a long time, however, Erik has been away because he works in Germany. When he does come back, he finds out that Charles has been abused by his ex (Sebastian Shaw… that scum!) and Erik goes all protective on dear Charles.

Look at Your Life, Look at Your Choices – set during the Cuban Mutant Divorce Tragedy, what if right before Erik dodges the bullets through his power a sassy gay friend appears? This was honestly hilarious!

Axis on Tilt - In which Erik takes long motorcycle rides and tries to pretend he is not in love with his best friend, who is getting married.

Having Kittens – see? I love kitten!Charles & kitten!Erik so much and I believe that among my recs, this is not the only one that falls in this category. I am weird that way, I know. So in this fic, Charles is pregnant then gets turned into a cat. ‘Nuff said.

Fluff & Kids - The prompt was for four times the kids called Erik “dad” and one time Charles called him “husband. You want cute? I’ll give you cute!

Shared Custody - “I would like to date your sister,” Azazel tells Charles after he makes a particularly fine point about Descartes’ Discourse on the Method for which Azazel has no rebuttal. THIS IS SO NICE J 

Game of the Century - “Well, obviously Erik isn’t ‘just anyone,’” Charles said dryly. “He’s a valuable ally – somewhat unstable, admittedly, but it just means we need to work harder to keep him happy and keep him from kiting off on some insane, revenge-related activity.”

If You Can’t be a Good Example – While the missiles were still hanging in the air due to Erik’s power, Charles reveals that he is actually pregnant. Erik cannot believe this, gets cold feet and actually runs away. Some badass rescue happens in this fic at the near end.

Beneath the Surface – This is a pretty popular fic and I doubt no one in the fandom has never read this but JUST IN CASE you missed this, well, here you go. Charles is a marine biologist and an activist against Shaw’s vicious ways in hunting down sharks. Erik is a half-human, half-shark or a shifter in nature. That is exactly how they meet – while Shaw was trying to hunt down poor Erik.

Call Me by His Name - 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. This fic issort of an assurance that although Charles and Erik are now separate entities, they still want to be with each other no matter what, and the offer always stands. Sad, depressing, but this fic is definitely worth the read.

Reckless - After returning from the confrontation in Russia, Erik and Charles have words. But for Erik, the line between anger and lust gets blurry (pre-established relationship, but early on in it). NC-17 y’all!

The Pen(is) MightierWARNING! This fic involves some dirty watersports so if this is not your thing… then you know what to do. I like this not because of the watersports thing, but because this is really funny! Smut, very NC-17.

Lima Syndrome – which is also known as Stockholm Syndrome. Erik & Charles, prior to the mutant war, have never met before and as the leader of the Brotherhood, Erik kidnaps the leader of the X-Men, Charles. 

Miles from What We Would Miss - Erik discovers a blue-eyed, rain soaked lost little boy on the edges of Lehnsherr estate on a chance encounter. Ten years later, it takes the longest chess game in history and a few hundred miles for Erik and Charles to realise what they had both been missing from the very beginning. THIS IS CUTE J But there is TOO MUCH UST going on, argh.

Courtship – I have been following this fic for a long time now and this has just been finished days ago (still fresh!). This is an epic read, prepare your eyes and your general comprehension because this fic is quite fast paced. The story’s set in the future (far, far future). Erik is the last surviving heir to the Lehnsherr legacy and to claim his familial fortune he must marry a noble before his 30th birthday. The search begins for the bachelor (who else? Than the youngest heir to the Xavier fortune, Charles). This may seem like fluff at first but BEWARE, it is not. There is angst, a little bit of NC-17, a little bit of politics and a whole lot of UST.

What If (This is All but a Lie) - Five lifetimes they might have lived and one that they actually did. THIS WILL BREAK YOUR HEART, PREPARE YOURSELVES L 

Phantom Limbs – Charles makes himself forget, Erik is there to remind him. I do not know my feelings for this fic :-/.

Cafuné - So of course, the rest of the afternoon was spent in a rousing game of ‘What Can We Do To Make The Professor’s Tail Puff Up Like A Bottle Brush?’ I LOVE THIS FIC! This is just pure fluff. Charles has a secret: he apparently has a cat tail, cat eyes and cat ears that he tries to hide as much as possible… well, not for long.

The Cat’s Meow – here is another fic for my favourite kitty!Charles kink. Erik (again) upsets a mutant who is able to lash out curses that involve somebody’s most loved and cherished individual. For Erik, it is his cat named Charles. Erik thought everything was normal, until he enters his room and finds a naked man on his bed and his cat nowhere in sight. LOVE THIS FIC J Fluff and a little bit of NC-17.

In the Moonlight, a Joy Ride – one of my favourite situations in a Cherik fanfic is where Erik and another male (in this case, Logan) fights over Charles’ affection. In this fic, Charles is a volunteer librarian (still 17, I think?), Erik & Logan are both students at a university. Cute, hilarious and just full of teenage happiness!

Any Measure of Peace - AU in which there was no beach divorce. Charles has been throwing himself at Erik, but Erik refuses to give in to his desires. Something about not wanting to sully Charles’ happy life with his darkness. He’s done some things, you see. Some very bad things. Charles, however, is nothing if not persistent. So he seduces Erik with everything he’s got. Erik suffers an epic case of blue balls.

Snakes and Ladders are Banned Here - Set post movie. They never meet in public; not for fear of getting caught, but because they’re too aware of innocent bystanders.

My Arms Will Hold You - Charles brings three young recruits to the mansion: Ororo, Scott, and Jean. Much to Erik’s dismay and annoyance, the children - especially Ororo - take up all of Charles’ time. Erik realizes, however, that he and Ororo may have more in common than what first meets the eye, and that he has hidden parenting skills that he never knew about. In short, this is a domestic!adorable!fic. 

Calling Out for… Love?  - AU. Erik and Charles both work overnight shifts at a phone sex call centre for whatever reason - just need a job, money for the PhD, etc. On their breaks, they argue politics, drink coffee and have philosophical debates which sometimes have to continue through IMs/texts while they’re taking calls in separate cubicles, or as they’re walking home partway together at 6am. Easy, good-naturedly combative friendship, UST and love happen.

The Bawd and The John – Charles runs a brothel (but no, he is not a shameless slut in this fic) and Erik is a politician (high ranking, can’t remember for the life of me! Kill me now) and he frequents the brothel just to see Charles. I dunno guys, this story’s AMAZING and I just can’t properly produce a decent summary for this. Just read this! A lot of UST, a lot of Erik pining, moderate amount of angst and lots of Erik and Charles bickering.

50 Sentences Challenge – So, the thing is, the author provides a word/a phrase and elaborates on it based on Charles’ and Erik’s relationship. I must say, this was so wonderful, it seriously gave me a lot of feelings. JUST A LOT OF FEELINGS.

First Breath After Coma - Charles wakes up to find he’s been in a coma for two years, and the world he thought he lived in is a lie. He’s still a professor of genetics, but there are no such thing as mutants, there is no such person as Erik Lehnsherr. But why can Charles still read minds?

For Who You Are and Where You’ll Be - As far as he was concerned, he was Wesley Gibson: an ex-accountant whose prospects lay in the business of assassination. He had nothing to do with Charles Xavier.

Undone – The summary for this fic is quite long unfortunately so I’m going to sum it up to the basic plot: After X3, Charles transfers his consciousness to the guy who was in coma and decides he is on a mission: he must go back in time to prevent Erik from deviating to being Magneto. Charles is then willing to whore himself for this mission (haha!). Warnings for time travelling, a lot of NC-17 things and stuff.

So Let’s Take a Ride and See What’s Mine - Charles and Erik have to go somewhere in a car. It’s a small car. Charles has to sit on Erik’s lap. Erik gets a boner. I dunno, LOL, just funny.

**********Still, MORE TO COME********** 

(My fingers are dying, maybe, JUST MAYBE, part 3 is going to come up tomorrow morning at GMT +8 time zone)

The Ultimate Fic Rec: FINISHED FICS Pt. 1

czarnyma:

Yey! I have finally made a fic rec post. Here you will find fics ranging from fluff to smut to MPREGS to PWPs to shameless pr0n to the epic. These fics are some of the stories that I read and enjoyed with infinite amount of feels. (This could be considered as my early Christmas gift to the fandom since: 1. I’d rather read fics than write them & 2. I draw but sad to say I don’t have a scanner I’m poor as fuck… so, yeah). 

Here it goes:

In Sickness & In Health - AU, totally schmoop, Charles is sick, Erik takes care of him.

I’ve Got The Whole Damn World in the Palm of my Hands “Charles refuses to call it a ‘booty call,’ even though that’s precisely what it is.” Set during the original animated series. Rated PG-13. Ohmygoodness this was funny as hell! 

The Mismeasure of a Man - 10 moments their lives fell together and came apart. This is really a nice fic even though it was a bit heartbreaking in the end. 

How Near, How Far - Moira knows how much Erik and Charles like each other, but for some dumb reason that frustrates her, they’re not getting together. So she tries to force Erik’s hand by flirting outrageously with Charles. Then, when that fails to work, she gets the other mutants to do the same. Erik is NOT happy.

This Crazy Game Called Life - Raven declares game night in the mansion. Sean finds an elephant, Erik inherits one hundred unwanted cats, and Charles scars Hank for life with misdirected dirty thinking. Funny and lighthearted, this fic will have you laughing and grinning all night.

Shut Up Sean It’s A Surprise- domestic, fluff, schmoop. The kids have a surprise for Charles & Erik but Sean’s ways are threatening its ‘surprise’ credibility.

I ♥ NY (It’s My Friends I’m Not Sure Of) - Erik is a single, successful man who likes quick sex with no strings attached. Then, he meets college professor Charles and it’s love at first sight, at least for him. Charles, who heard of Erik’s notorious ways, wants nothing to do with him besides being friends. Cue Erik bending over backwards to steal Charles’ heart. This is one of the first ever fanfics I have ever read in this fandom and also one of the reasons I have been in love with Charles & Erik. This is a popular fic, if you haven’t read it then read it now!

 

Troia - Erik is a high-command soldier and after a battle he takes in Charles, a Prince as his prize and ‘spoil of war’. Charles resists at first, but he finds Erik to be quite charming, and protects him from all other soldiers and is nothing like he first assumed. This fic is just quality! It was full of smut but really entertaining… Imagine the movie Troy but with our boys Charles & Erik.

Lean on Me- Charles and Erik split up, dividing their six kids between them. None of them expect them to meet at summer camp. And no one could have predicted the results. If you liked the Disney movie “Parent Trap” then you will absolutely have ogle eyes over this delightful fluffy fic, a must-read for every Cherik fangirl.

Try, Try Again - Except that this has happened before, he thinks with a start, and something in his throat closes up as he revolves on the spot, already knowing what he’s going to see. Charles’ back is arching as he falls, his eyes wide, and the crumpled bullet falls to the sand beside him like a calling card. This fic is just sheer genius, reminds me a lot of Jake Gyllenhaal’s movie, “Source Code” minus the military agenda.

Some Assembly Required - Alex and Hank were two teenagers who frequently fight in school. One fight got so bad that the principal called in their fathers (as both came from single-parent families)/ guardians for a conference. This was how Charles and Erik meet.

Wages - Erik is engaged to Raven due to an arrangement made by their parents.Charles has no wish other than to see his sister happy. He has no problem with Erik. In fact, he enjoys playing chess with Erik every time he visits. Actually, he enjoys it more than he should.But Raven is in love with Azazel. And she wants to elope with him.Charles agrees to detain Erik on the night that Raven and Azazel plan to elope. Since Erik has such a high tolerance for alcohol, Charles has to resort to tying him up in bed. Unfortunately, since Charles is a lightweight, he falls asleep on Erik.The following night, while Charles is out gambling at his favorite club, Erik makes a wager that is too good to turn down. If Charles loses, however, he has to spend to night with Erik and do whatever Erik wants.Charles loses the bet. This is some hawt smut fic, if you are in the mood to fap, then fap to this. :P

In Plain Sight – this fic is AKA the fic where Erik & Charles trolls the hell out of the kids. This fic was fluffy and so much fun.

Linger - Erik had been warned, to be fair. The realtor was very explicit that the last seventeen tenants had run from the premises screaming about the Exorcist or The Ring or some other terrible horror show. Or this is where Erik gets a new apartment and he thinks a soul named Charles is haunting him.

Humane Society – Charles is human, Erik is a mutant. One day, Erik upsets a mutant who has the ability of turning people into cats? (or other sorts of animals?) and Erik turns into a cat. He, then, stumbles upon Charles who takes care of him. THIS IS QUALITY FLUFF YOU MUST READ IT!!!

It’s All Coming Back to Me - When Erik hears that Charles died on the beach where he left him, there’s only one thing left for him to do: take the world down with him as he crashes and burns in his grief. But maybe the world will get its reprieve before he goes too far.

The Word That Breaks The Pause - A summons to the mansion, or an order, Erik could have—would have—ignored. But something in the last six terrible months has taught Charles how to say “please.”

The (Not) Hot Twin – Wesley & Charles are twins, Wesley is the jock and Charles is the nerd. Enter Erik who is an all-around guy, popular and handsome but much to Charles’ surprise, Erik has eyes for the shy misunderstood nerd twin. This fic is my teenage dream, I so desperately want this to happen in my life!

Wir Schützen Was Wir Lieben – Everyone gets protective of Erik after an unfortunate incident and Erik realizes something so important about how they all feel about him, especially his bestfriend. This fic, although relatively short, has been one of the most memorable fics I have ever read in this fandom.

Finally Moving – This fic is a modern take inspired by the movie Atonement—Erik is the son of servants and Charles is the son of the master of the house.  This fic, especially the part where Erik writes a naughty/dirty letter to Charles, is HAWT GURRL.

Time to Grow - 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.

So Worth It – Alex & Erik are prisoners. One day, Erik wants Alex to do him a favour and Alex wonders why Erik wants him to punch him in the face. This fic… gawd, too short! But really funny and wonderful.

Enemy of the Enemy- The Brotherhood finds out that Charles has been kidnapped by the government… but not for long. There is some BAMF rescue by Erik.

It isn’t You, It’s Me - One of them is literally, legitimately bad in bed. He has been laboring under the assumption that he was some sort of sex god, but he’s not. The other skillfully instructs him on how to be a better lover. This is some funny fluffy fic!

Protege - Charles is in the wheelchair, he isn’t happy, and he *needs* someone. Not sexually, not romantically, but pretty much just as a friend. Erik’s gone, Raven’s gone, he made Moira leave, and he’s basically left with his three boys. Alex steps up to fill the role, almost by accident, really, and it’s just heart-breaking when Alex realizes that he’s fallen in love with Charles, and that it’s never going to happen because Charles is still so very much in love with Erik. This is some heartbreaking shit, not very good for the faint-hearted.

Not So Much the Teacup – Erik is an architect, Charles is a wedding planner. Then Sebastian Shaw, Erik’s boss, decides to marry Emma Frost and hires Charles to plan the biggest wedding of the century. This fic’s pretty famous, I think there’s no need for me to urge fangirls into reading this, the prompt itself is amazing.

The Fisher King’s Son – Erik is canon!Erik still chasing after Shaw and Charles is a merman who saves Erik from drowning. Warning: This fic has broken a lot of fangirls’ hearts ever since this fic has been published. The ending is really heartbreaking, it’s better to prepare yourself with tissue, a box of chocolate and a pillow to cuddle.

Muttersprache – The title is German for a Mother’s Tongue. MPREG: Charles is pregnant with Erik’s child. This is the cutest thing ever!

********* MORE TO COME *************

( as soon as my hands start cooperating again, in a couple of minutes tops)

GO READ AFTER HOURS OK

AFTER HOURS GIVES ME ALL THE SADISTIC CREEPY FUCK FEELS.

READ IT NOW

Posted at 9:10 pm on Friday, December 9, 2011 with 7 notes

All right, fuck it. Here’s a fic rec. WIP Edition.

pandabomb:

Cherik (warning: many are explicit)

Utopia - Erik succeeds and becomes a dictator after a mutant/human war. Charles is his prisoner. This is one of my favorites for the UST, brilliant characterizations, and relationship dynamics.

Nine Eleven Ten - Beauty and the Beast AU. This fic. I can’t. I CANNOT EVEN. It is… just so, so great. Fucked up emotions, relationships, characters; it’ll scare the shit out of you, take your breath away, everything. Stop reading—you should be reading this fic instead.

To Be Alone (With You) - modern!AU where our favorite mutant husbands grow up together. This fic made my heart hurt and my soul cry. I want to hug it and sometimes scream at it.

Vergissmeinnicht - schoolboy!AU. READ. THIS. FUCKING. FIC. I cannot even describe how much I love it. Touching, creative, so cute you wanna puke, the whole shebang.

Paper Monsters - Erik is an elusive author who starts pulling on Charles pigtails for being a fan, all while Charles is, obviously, clueless as to who he’s talking to. Clever and definitely worth a look. The author writes quality stuff; check out their AO3 account if you haven’t already.

Actorverse - awesome collaboration between some talented people! Charles and Erik are movie stars with major chemistry. Their characters are called James and Michael. IT’S LIKE AN ONION WITH ALL THE LAYERS. Love love love.

Caution - Do Not Run in Hallways - I thought I didn’t like d/s stuff, but this fandom has changed that. Kinks all around: possession!kink, underage!kink, imprint!kink, etc. It’s really quite adorable, actually. Mild compared to the other d/s fics out there.

comic book store AU - Charles owns a bookstore, Erik is a graphic novelist, and there is cuteness all around. Warm fuzzies galore.

Late Bloomer - still mutants in this modern!AU, but Charles doesn’t manifest for awhile. This causes general ~emotions~ and Erik having a kink for his weak, puny human boyfriend. Kinda like West Side Story except everyone loves Charles and he turns out to be a Jet in the end anyway.

Better Outrun My Gun - western!AU. Erik is a passing renegade looking for vengeance. He meets some siblings who own a saloon—Charles, Raven, and Moira—and gets tangled in their issues. HIGHLY LOVED AND RECOMMENDED.

Out of the Park - Erik is a pro baseball star, Charles is his adorable professor boyfriend, Shaw is that asshole from the other team, and things are as fluffy as a fucking pillow in the clouds.

Vow of Silence - slave!AU. Mutants are enslaved and controlled via implanted chips. Erik is supposedly human and hunting down a supposedly human Shaw when he comes across a pretty slave in a mutant brothel. So much beauty and love.

Beneath Me - stable boy AU. Do you want smut? Do you want domination and power struggles with your smut? Do you want young boys enraptured by their lust for each other despite class differences? Yeah, I thought so.

The Last Spartan - Everything is Stelios/Charles/Erik and nothing hurts.

may be the mirror of my dreams - Notting Hill AU. Go ahead, indulge in some cheesy romance movie goodness.

The Only Son - another western!AU. Because DUH ERIK IS A RENEGADE OUT FOR JUSTICE IN THE WILD WEST.

Dial M For Mutant - noir!AU. Erik is a private eye and Charles is his dame rich pretty boy employer. Sequel now posted as well!

The Last Cherry on the Fruit Stand - modern!AU where Charles hits a midlife crisis and Erik is there to show him how sexy he is by sucking his dick. Which, of course, is magical.

a thousand pages (give or take a few) - unf, bookstore owners AU. UST is nearly overwhelming and smut is HOT.

Howl - werewolf!au. Truly terrifying, haunting, and gorgeous. Everything I didn’t know I needed.

the fine print - another bookstore!AU. This is by the same author of Howl and is being updated on the author’s journal here.

Judging a Book by the Wrong Cover - EasyA!fusion. I have a soft spot for slutty!Charles in any form. Don’t judge me.

Bad Romance - Erik is pretty much Lady Gaga in this fic. Didn’t think you’d enjoy a cracky, pop star AU? Think again, fucker. Author seems MIA for now.

All That’s Best of Dark and Bright - Charles is an escort and Erik is… straight. But trying to get his overbearing homophobic Shawdaddy to fuck off. If anyone knows this author, tell them: GET BACK HERE AND WRITE MOAR, PLEASE. This is quality, I promise!

Of Sharks and Scientists - Erik is literally a shark. He is turned human by a mutant. Don’t knock it ‘til you try it.

The one where Erik owns an antique shop and Charles is a professor - yes, that’s the title. Yes, it is fucking GREAT. I am really intrigued to see where this one goes.

The Courtship of Francine and Lehmanbot - future!AU / reincarnation awesomeness. I didn’t think I’d like this, but I was hooked quickly. Really cool concept.

We Met at the Park - modern!AU where Charles is a hooker. I don’t necessarily like the characterizations (doesn’t jive with me all the time) but the story is lovely and often heartbreaking. Up to Ch 13 so far.

Mr. Xavier’s Neighborhood - Charles has a kids’ show where he wears cardigans and sings with puppets about how being a mutant is a-okay. Erik watches with his kids and secretly wants to rip off Charles’s cardigan.

Chase You Down - Erik is a famous movie star and Charles is clueless. Adorable and (sadly) on hiatus, it seems.

Somebody Break My Heart, Somebody Shake My Brains - band!AU. Surprisingly touching and lovely. Parts 1 and 2 are up. Not explicit but wonderful.

Precious - jailbait!Charles. I am a sucker for bad circumstances, drinking away emotions, and underage sexy problems. Author seems MIA; it’s a shame.

Let’s Get Together (Yeah, Yeah, Yeah) - Parent Trap AU. Pure, unfiltered shenanigans.

And those are just some of the fics I follow. A McFassy fic rec may be coming soon. I would do a fic rec devoted to completed works, but I didn’t save all the ones I liked and it would take forever to track them down.

Cherik rec list of semi-epic proportions

I’m partially making this because I’ve seen some people asking for one in the cherik tags, and partially because I’m switching browsers and too lazy to change over the bookmarks. LOLOLOLOL

CHERIK REC LIST OF SEMI-EPIC PROPORTIONS by Zimothy

[<3] <— ones that I tend to go back and read again and again. Keep in mind that I have only bookmarked the fics that I REALLY enjoyed, and that I read at least two fics every day, so these are already the best of the best that I have read.

[*] <— ones you should click the author and look at their other Cherik fics.

Duct Tape Makes Makes You Smart by Alchemy Alice
Summary: X-Men via Burn Notice. “My name is Charles Xavier. I used to be a spy…”

[<3] You Look For A Legend by gameplays

Lots of people’s lives (especially those who are in hospitals, on life support) are in danger so Erik agrees to become - for some time - some kind of living power station, someone who’s able to produce at least some of needed energy.
Charles is very proud of Erik but at the same time - very anxious. And - as the days and weeks go by - he starts missing Erik and their quiet life together…


A Thousand Pages (Give or Take a Few) by anon
prompt: ueling used bookstores, run by Erik and Charles. They each send various scouts (Raven, Azazel, etc.) to check out the competition, only to find that the competition is not only hot, but also incredibly fond of Gatsby and the Lost Generation.

[<3]Searchlight & Methods of Deduction by anon and tawabids
prompt: Instead of warily accepting the mutants and their potential as spies, the US government sees them as an entirely separate species and locks them up to study them.

[<3] Humane Society by anon
prompt:
While recruiting mutants to his cause, Erik happens to offend a mutant with the power of transfiguration. He winds up being turned into a kitten and is kicked out onto the streets of New York. Erik is a menacing, self-reliant kitten, yes, but he’s also tiny and susceptible to chills — and so when a young human professor eventually picks him up and murmurs softly to him and tucks him into his jacket, Erik doesn’t immediately claw him to ribbons.

Needles by Skull Bearer

Erik and Charles (respectively) are a Dominant and Submissive pair that find each other after thinking the other is dead.

Desperate Measures by temperance_k
Prompt:The inhabitants of Charles’ estate (Charles, his conniving sister Raven, his adorable but mischievous adopted children, and their live-in handyman, Erik) have been growing restless. To keep the children (ranging from kindergarten to fifth or sixth grade) from destroying everything in site, Charles comes up with a scavenger hunt, of sorts. The objective? To find his ‘heart’ (which is really just a heart-shaped photo of everyone)

[<3] Fatal Distraction by grim_lupine
Summary: Raven is six years older than Charles; Charles has never really considered this age difference vitally important in one way or another, except to decide that even if Raven were six years younger than Charles, she would probably boss him around in the exact same way. He doesn’t really think much of the difference between fifteen and twenty-one, until Raven comes home from college for a study weekend with her new best friend in tow, introduces him cheerfully as Erik Lehnsherr, and Charles finds himself falling head-over-heels into a train wreck of doomed lust.

Mr. Xavier’s Neighborhood by SharpestScalpel
Summary: Mr. Xavier’s Neighborhood - teaching kids to be proud of their mutations thanks to their sponsors and viewers like you! And viewers like Erik Lensherr, who possibly maybe has an inappropriate crush on his children’s favorite television personality. Songs, puppets, American literature, and geek references abound.

Here, have some Fassavoy:


Something Faintly Sweeter by Stardustcities

Wealthy CEO Michael Fassbender gets more — much more — than he bargains for when he hires a beautiful streetwalker named James to be his companion for the week.

Won’t Do No Good To Hold No Seance by Invaderwitch

[I HOPE THAT THIS LIST MAKES ALL OF YOU LATE FOR CLASS/WORK AT LEAST THREE TIMES.]

J2 MINI-REC LIST.

J2
Title: In it For Love
Summary: After a drunken dare, award-winning writer Jensen agreed to on a reality television show to vie for the attention of megastar Jared Padalecki who he’s had a crush on for years. Only Jensen doesn’t know how he’s going to be able to tolerate all the other contestants and their widely varying personalities and he’s pretty sure that you’re not supposed to be able to get used to somebody filming you 24/7.
http://dragonspell.livejournal.com/135247.html

Title: Lost and Found
Summary: Jensen Ackles is a shy, overweight songwriter whose body issues have prevented him from forming any real personal connections, and at thirty, he’s still unsure of his sexuality, and still a virgin. But when he signs up for an experimental obesity research program, he meets Jared Padalecki, a stunningly sexy fitness guru who slowly but surely changes Jensen’s life.
http://mediaville.livejournal.com/57649.html
(recc’ers note: this fic killed me. I have self-image issues and oadsfalskdjfasldfkajdsfads oh my god. this thing is amazing. and jesus. the sexual tension. so good. )

Title: The Tragedy of Life
Summary: The only luck Jensen seems to be having lately is bad – he’s accidentally come out to his family and been disowned (sort of), had his lyrics stolen by his best friend (now ex) who he last saw sipping champagne on an episode of CMT Cribs, and is one late rent payment from being thrown out on his ass because apparently no one wants to buy insurance from a guy with an eyepatch (don’t ask).
But things finally start to look up when he meets his hot new neighbor, Jared, and of course that’s when Jensen has to go and get himself killed.
Turns out the afterlife? Not all it’s cracked up to be. And his death coach is kind of a douche, too.
http://lizzywinks.livejournal.com/14001.html?view=215729#t215729

Title: Jensen Ackles Doesn’t Exist
Summary: It’s your average damaged!Jensen get’s kidnapped by art theif!Jared story…

Destiel Highschool/College AU Rec list

destielmybeatingheart:

  1. I Might Kinda Like You NC-17: High school AU. Castiel is at a party he doesn’t want to be at at, when he bumps into Dean. Shorter fic (around 5000) plot and some sex.
  2. Jump The Track NC-17: High school AU. It’s Dean’s senior year at Lawrence High, and he’s already given up on himself. It takes the arrival of the strange, intense, awkward Castiel Delacroix at the school to prove to Dean that maybe his life is worth saving after all. This is the one I’m saving, but from what I gather it has plot aplenty and some sex in there too.
  3. It Never Gets Better Anyway NC-17: High school AU - Castiel knows life isn’t fair. If it was, then he wouldn’t be bullied for things that others get away with constantly. It isn’t fair of him to hate Dean either, but life isn’t fair, and neither is Castiel. Currently reading this one, enjoying it muchly and I haven’t even got to the sex yet!
  4. Oh Yes, You Do, Mr. Novak NC-17: High School AU. This is basically a 5 part PWP, Dean is a 17 yo student and Cas is his 22 year old teacher. Hot sex occurs…like HOT filthy talking sex. Bottom!Cas.
  5. Slow Moving Cars NC-17 - College AU. A nice shorter roommate fic. Cas hates Dean after a fight at his work months ago, now he has to work with him in order to pass his art class.
  6. Punch Drunk Love PG-15 (other two parts are NC-17): High School AU. Castiel has never been kissed, his best friend decides to teach him. OK. This is the first of 3 AMAZING fics (sequels Knock Me Out and Wanna Mess Around) Hot, amazing tension, perfectly written kissing/sex and the characterisation is perfect. I re-read this all the fucking time! Read all three.
  7. You Really Got a Hold on Me PG-13: High School AU. Dean and Cas are neighbours and best friends. This is a cute 5 chapter slow build love story, no sex, but the schmoop makes up for it :)
  8. Chemistry PG-13 - R: (part 2, part 3) High School AU. Dean is the new kid in town and Castiel is his lab partner. This Cas in this is pretty bamf.
  9. Cold Academic Hell Verse PG-13 (mostly): College AU. This is a LONG ASS VERSE. It is split in to two parts for each chapter, one Destiel and one Sabriel, you can read both separately and still follow the story however the Destiel is the primary. In this Dean and Sam are students, and Cas and Gabriel are student advisers. Well worth a read, but if you’re looking for sex, you wont find (much) of it here.

  10. Wrong in All the Right Ways PG-13 : College AU (I guess?) Dean and Cas are friends, and Dean has crazy ideas, Cas has no idea why he goes along with them. Short fic, no sex.
  11. Rabbit Heart PG - R: College AU. There is a costume party, and Dean is a knight (this along makes it read worthy) This is a 16 part fic, and the 16th part isn’t up (well I couldn’t find it anywhere) so I didn’t read it (don’t read unfinished work) but from a bit of skim reading this looks to have a lot of plot and plenty of lovin!

  25. Rebel Rebel PG-13 - NC-17: High School AU. Dean Winchester has never been a normal high school student. Helping his private detective father out with cases has given him a questionable skill set and a world-weary attitude. Everything goes from bad to worse however when his small town is rocked by murder, and the more Dean tries to find the truth, the more secrets he unearths. Honestly I got to chapter 7 and bookmarked it to read later, it gets a little slow in the middle. It is sweet though, but I’m not much of a crime fic girl and that’s a large part of this story.
