Fic: you heard the man you love

Title: you heard the man you love
Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Pairing: Charles Xavier/Erik Lehnsherr
Rating: gen
Word count: 1,280
Summary: Originally done for the 1stclass_kinkmeme in July of last year in response to a prompt asking for "the one where everyone is homo sapiens," a second person POV with a few words spanning decades. Charles meets Erik under suitably dramatic conditions, and the life that follows is perhaps--in comparison to a life as a superhero (or villain)--a quiet one. But as with any life, it isn't without moments of bravery, and weakness, and loss. Gratuitous use of Margaret Atwood's poetry is involved.
