I know I usually do the reccing, but I was hoping to do a slightly different rec list, but I need some assistance. 

I was wondering if you could take some time and rec me your favourite X-Men First Class fanfic authors/fan artists. The ones who you believe consistently churn out art and fic that make you melt in your seats. You can rec as many as you want, of course, as long as the people you rec have all written/drawn more than 3 XMFC related fic/art

Furthermore, if anyone could rec any videos/vidmakers, that would be wonderful. 
X-Men FC: We Met At The Park

We Met At The Park - chapter 18

Title: We Met At The Park (chapter 18/19, this chapter 8872 words) 
Fandom: X-Men: First Class 
Pairing: Erik/Charles 
Rating: NC-17  
Genre: Romance/Drama/Fluff/HurtComfort/Angst (but with a happy ending), basically pretty much everything in one fic. 

Summary: AU, no powers. Unable to sleep one night Erik takes a midnight walk in the local park. He finds himself being followed and propositioned by a rent boy named Charles, and begins to fall rather rapidly for his charms. Charles however has never known what love is, and doesn't recognise it even when it's staring at him in the face. As for Erik, he doesn't realise a creeping illness is slowly affecting Charles, and his dark past is something he couldn't have imagined. 

Notes:  Inspiration taken entirely from James McAvoys character of Martin in the first 10 minutes of the first episode of Murder in Mind, where if you haven’t seen that he plays a rent boy who gets murdered (watch it here on youtube). The first couple of chapters follow the same sort of situation and dialogue, but doesn’t end with either Charles or Erik dead lol Plus added bits I've done my own, then it goes off in an entirely different direction.

Fic: Looking Through You

Written for cayal for the secret_mutant exchange this past year.

Title: Looking Through You
Author: Ashley
Characters/Pairings: Erik; implied Erik/Charles
Rating: teen and up
Length: 1200+
Summary: Erik ruminates on Charles – and what the other mutant can actually do for him.
Author’s notes: My prompt: Erik really grasping the massive implications of Charles' power on a global scale, which then deteriorates into fantasies of how to best use it on a more... personal level.

The Weaver stance was coined in 1959, according to the ‘net, so hopefully I’m okay there. This is set in the mansion, around the time of the satellite scene. Beta’d by xlikethenightx and many thanks for her time! Feedback is love.

Looking Through You
not alone

fic search

Hey all need help looking for a fic. It's non powered Cherik fic au where the house Charles moves into is haunted, cue a mysterious black goo getting on plates and in the computer (which Hank tries to fix) and one protective Erik. It gets to the point where Charles refuses to be alone in the house after he gets attacked by floating knives and begins to hide out in his inherited antiques or book shop (can't remember which it is). Thought I'd saved it for sure but I can't find it anywhere. It's multichaptered and the kids all work in Charles store. Any help appreciated! Thanks

XMFC: It's Always Darkest before the Dawn

Title: It's Always Darkest before the Dawn
Author: [personal profile] amai_kaminari
Recipient: la_petite_singe
Community: secret_mutant
Fandom: X-Men: First Class (2011)
Characters/Pairings: Charles/Erik, Raven
Rating: PG-13
Length: ~4000
Summary: Erik Lehnsherr was a man of many talents. Unfortunately, buying a Christmas present for a telepath was not one of them.
Prompt 1: No light, no light in your bright blue eyes / I never knew daylight could be so violent / A revelation in the light of day (Florence + the Machine)
Prompt 2: Erik has no idea where to begin shopping for a Christmas present for Charles, so he enlists Raven's help (and possibly others').
A/N: I took liberties with the movie canon time line. Story title and section titles are quotes from the songs Shake It Out and No Light, No Light, respectively, by Florence and the Machine. Also, many thanks to my wonderful beta gracie_musica. I touched it last, so all mistakes are mine.
