[Fic] And the Gunslinger Followed | AU | NC-17

title: And the Gunslinger Followed
author: musical_emjay
pairing: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier
fandom: X-Men First Class
rating: NC-17
wordcount: ~60k

warnings: graphic violence, vampires, blood drinking (non-con and consensual)

summary: Erik Lehnsherr hunts the things that go bump in the night.

He’s done so since he was a child, since the first time his mother put a knife in his hand and told him how to use it, told him why he should.

But ten years alone on the road has caught up to him, left him wrung out and longing for a place to rest, recharge, get his head back on straight. Though nowhere has ever truly felt like home, he heads straight for New York City, a place that’s always had more to offer him by way of warmth and comfort than any other. What he finds when he gets there, however, is several miles south of anything approaching restful. Old acquaintances, old memories, and a mysterious stranger who has him forgetting all his rules — Erik soon realizes there are decisions he needs to make, before circumstances intervene and make them for him. Otherwise, he might not like the result.

FIC: Prayers for the Living

Title: Prayers for the Living
Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 29,634
Notes: Cowritten by fahye (Charles's POV) and littledust (Erik's POV). AU from midway through the film, looking at what might have happened if Azazel had (sensibly) teleported to Russia and Emma had (sensibly) gone recruiting baby mutants. In which Moira is badass, actions have consequences, and Charles and Erik manage to have some feelings when they're not racing around the country.

To forestall any questions about Mr Black: we had to give Oliver Platt's character an actual name so that we could stop calling him Oliver Platt, or, as IMDb would have it, 'Man In Black Suit'. We decided to err on the side of unsubtlety.

Endless gratitude to pocky_slash for her beta reading skills and enthusiasm.

Erik has just finished dressing when the explosions begin.
