Fic: Second Chances

Title: Second Chances
Author: red
Rating: M for sexual content
Word Count: 15,100
Characters: Charles Xavier/Erik Lensherr; background Azazel/Janos; Raven Darkholme; Hank McCoy

Summary: Done for a prompt on the XMFC Kinkmeme requesting a retelling of the 1996 movie Different for Girls, but with an FTM Charles and Erik as the awkward cisgendered courier. An AU where mutants are public knowledge but very much second-class citizens, Erik once found himself an unlikely friend at the state-run house for powerful mutants. When Frances escaped to college, Erik figured he'd never see her again. Fifteen years later, Erik runs into a strangely familiar man halfway across the country. Considering the participants, it's no surprise the resulting courtship is full of misunderstanding. And chess.

Read on LJ or AO3.
