word count: approx. 2150 in this installment
fandom: X-Men: First Class [movieverse]
characters: Charles Xavier, Erik Lehnsherr
rating: R [may go up in later chapters]
notes: It all started with this, which led to this [which forms the second part of this first chapter], and then there was this. So yes. I thought I was done with swords-and-sorcery fantasy stuff after my X-Men Big Bang [Crucible], but this is a story that's got its hooks in me and I think it's going to take me to all kinds of interesting and amazing and dark places. These are not the Charles and Erik you think you know.
Work in Progress. Please heed the rating.
