Disclaimer Marvel owns it, I don’t.
Summary Two arrivals to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters coincide - Jason Stryker, a child branded a freak because of his psychic powers, and Erik Lehnsherr, wanted terrorist and old friend of the professor. Jason is there as his father wants him cured - Erik claims that he has gone rogue from his own renegades. As tensions rise between mutants and humans, as well as between the suddenly reunited friends, who can truly be trusted?
Author’s notes I realised only after I wrote the first scene that this doesn’t actually comply with canon, but I had too much fun writing Scott’s POV to change it. Also, sorry about how 1960s-stupid several of the characters are in this chapter.

Was it really cowardly, wanting to keep people safe?

fic - the first of many - charles/erik, background angel/raven

Title: The First of Many (AO3 link)
Author: chiasmus
Characters/Pairings: Charles/Erik, Angel/Raven (background)
Rating: R
Length: 4300
Summary: Charles speaks of past Christmases with great enthusiasm, traditions he and Raven developed together in their largely insular childhood. He’s so undeniably excited that even if Erik won’t become an active participant in propagating Christmas cheer, he’s still glad to spend time with his ridiculous boyfriend.
Notes: Gift for stlkrchck in the secret_mutant exchange. Modern, still powered, AU. Fluff.

Erik is, at best, neutral towards the "holiday season".

It was written for the Secret Mutant Exchange 2012 (and every time I wanted to post an announcement here LJ acted up and I kept forgetting XD)

Mods: May I have an author tag - I swear I will not abuse it in an attempt to gain world domination.
