Title: Invictus (1/4)
Word count: 2517
Warnings: non-con, not described but mentioned. Trauma; depression. Victim-blaming, indifference. 
Notes: Based off this prompt. I read this and then I felt like I needed to fill it. Please be advised that there are a lot of possible triggers in this story, as it deals with a victim's state of mind. I want to make it clear that I personally do not think Erik and Raven would actually react this way to this, but have twisted their response in favor of filling the prompt. Unfortunately a lot of victims do go through something of the sort. 
This story is fully written, and edited by lovely, wonderful black_betty_26. I'll be posting the chapters one after the other to facilitate reading, and because I realize it's an emotionally charged story. 

Title taken from the poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley. 

Out of the night that covers me
black as the pit from pole to pole
I thank whatever gods may be
for my unconquerable soul.

He should get up. He needed to get up. The snow was cold he knew, even though he could scarcely feel it. His breath was white puffs of steam, dissipating in the air above him. )

Fic: And All of the Ghouls Come Out to Play.

Hello!  Relatively new member de-lurking with a fic offering.

This is just a short little one-shot meant to serve as a writing exercise to prep me for actual commission work this afternoon, but I like the idea of it and I'm considering developing the concept into a full story.  Thought I'd share it with you all first and see whether or not there's any interest.  Comments & critiques greatly appreciated!  This is my first time playing the XMFC universe, so feedback is very welcome.

Title: And All of the Ghouls Come Out to Play
Author: russettedbones
Pairing: Charles x Erik, if you squint
Rating: G
Warnings: Vague spoilers for the movie, one swearword.
Disclaimer: Not mine. Title and opening quote are from Florence + The Machine's song, "Shake It Out".

Summary: Not long after moving the team into the mansion, Charles finds himself unable to sleep -- and he isn't the only one. Erik offers to distract him, and what ensues is a brief, wordless game of creation and destruction.
