xmen: erik&charles1 steps


Good morning, everybody! It's the Friday boost for the chatroom, so just open the chat up if you get there before me, and have fun! :D

I think some folks are thinking that the chat is only open on Fridays – it isn't, though that's when it gets advertised/hosted for largely traditional reasons dating back to when kaitlia777 started the first community chatroom last year. Seriously, if anybody wants to use it at any time, go for it. If there's nobody else there, wait a bit and someone else may well show up (I generally have the chat up in the background if I'm online).

From a web browser, go to:, enter your preferred nickname and go to channel #xmfc_chat

If you prefer to set up a channel in a chat client, the server is, no password; just point it (via "join a chat" or equivalent) at the channel as above and you should find us!

fic: two strangers on the mend

Have this month's Erik/Charles holiday fic! It is Independence Day, and it is even on time--it's still August!

Title: Two Strangers On The Mend
Author: luninosity
Rating: R for content; see warnings
Warnings: visions of abuse in Charles’s childhood memories, plus some not-too-explicit sex with Erik, to make things better
Word Count: 7,105
Disclaimers: characters belong to Marvel, not me! Title and opening lines from “Overdrive,” by the Foo Fighters, as always!
Notes/Summary: part of the holiday fic sequence (but they're only thematically connected, you don't need to've read the others); Independence Day at the mansion. Fireworks, painful memories, emotional hurt/comfort, beautiful first times, s’mores.
