mutants in love

two new fics!

Title: search you out
Author: pocky_slash
Characters: Charles/Erik
Rating: PG
Length: ~1k
Summary: Sequel to we were the only ones there. Alone at sunset, Charles just wants to make sure Erik is still there.

Notes: Based on the following tweet from David Levithan's @LoversDiction account:
dim, adj.: In that hour between the sky darkening and the lighting of our lamps, I search you out, just wanting to know you’re there.
Thanks to pearl_o for the beta ♥

Title: the magic of the fading day
Author: pocky_slash
Characters: Erik, Raven, Charles (daycare 'verse)
Rating: PG
Length: ~2k
Summary: In which Raven is sick and skeptically critical of her Papa's life choices, and Erik has the best job in the world.

Notes: This started out as a gift for shaliara (who was recently married) and got twisted from her original prompt ("huddling for warmth") and is also super, super later. I hope you don't mind that it took so long and that you like it anyway and I am still working on the other one. I'm taking it a new way, now. Anyway, you are great and I hope you had a great time on your honeymoon ♥ Title from The Weepies' "Take it From Me."

Good evening, all! It's time for the Friday boost for the chatroom once more. Just open the room 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: chat.mibbit.com, 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 irc.uk.mibbit.net, no password; just point it (via "join a chat" or equivalent) at the channel as above and you should find us!
