"My name is Nick Fury," he tells Raven. "And I'm here to talk to you about Cain Marko."

XMFC/Inception fusion, sequel to Boden's Mate. Raven's running her own extractions these days, but the job S.H.I.E.L.D.'s dumped in her lap is a real shitshow. Two marks, two simultaneous dreams, eleven dreamers, and a hell of a lot of baggage. Time to call in a few favors -- and did she mention the job involves inception?

Friday Chat time – slightly later than usual but you should all know the drill by now!

~ Chat ~

If you've never come along to one of the chats before and are worried about fitting into an established group, please don't be – we're a very friendly chatroom and very international – why not come along and say hi to some fellow XMFC fans? :D The chatroom is up all the time, btw, not just Friday night – we often have quite a good little group going on Saturday mornings, UK time. :) Come along and say hi!

(in fact, definitely say hi if you do come along – the sound notifications don't let us know if someone has just quietly snuck in. We're not ignoring you, we may just not know that you're there!)

Fic: Tabula Rasa

Hello, everyone! Based upon the overwhelmingly positive feedback on And All of the Ghouls Come Out to Play earlier this week, I've written this - a much longer and more in-depth exploration of Charles' telepathy and how it relates to his evolving relationship with Erik. Thank you very much to those of you who took the time to read and/or comment on the first ficlet, here or at Ao3 - it's greatly appreciated! I hope you enjoy this. ♥

Due to LJ's length restrictions, I've divided this up into two parts. Or, if you prefer, you can read the entire thing in one go at Ao3 here.

Title: Tabula Rasa
Author: russettedbones
Pairing: Charles/Erik
Rating: G
Warnings: Spoilers for the movie, minor swearing
Disclaimer: Not mine. Quote at the beginning from Florence + The Machine's song, 'No Light, No Light'

A/N: I'm trained as a Medieval historian, not a scientist. My interest in language is purely cultural and emotional, and all descriptions of Charles' telepathy contained in this story should be taken that way. (Charles may be a scientist, but Erik isn't - hence my logic on his choice of vocabulary.)

Summary: Erik knows that Charles is both the strongest and the weakest of them all. But the 'why' of that paradox somehow gets lost in translation.
