Looking for fic!

Hey guys! I'm looking for a fic by faithbeckett called Protege. It's Charles/Erik, & one-sided Alex/Charles. She's left livejournal and AO3. And I was wondering if anyone knows if the story is still around somewhere? It'd be sad if it was lost completely. I'd really appreciate it! I will miss faithbeckett. Sigh.
