[fic] Underneath Your Tide 1/? (dark Beach AU, Charles/Erik, NC-17) [sequel to Night Ocean]]

Title: Underneath Your Tide 1/?
by Meredith Bronwen Mallory (garnettrees)
Rating: NC-17. I'm serious.
Disclaimer: X-Men, all associated characters and imagery are all property of Marvel Comics. I make no money by writing this, and intend no disrespect.
Trigger Warnings: Abduction/kidnapping, mind control, light D/s, sub!Erik, dub con, noncon (not actual), captivity, non-pairing character death, drugging. And the kitchen sink.
Additional Warnings: (is is that enticements?) dark!Charles, Beach AU, service submission, fluffy D/s, mind fuckery like whoa.
Summary: A year after the altercation on the beach-- subsequent capture by his supposedly-pacifist best friend-- Erik waits for Charles to come home from a scientific conference. On the outside, they are two like-minded individuals building a school for their kind.

Privately... Erik belongs to Charles-- absolute and non-negotiable.

A/N: Okay, when you sit down to write porn and end up with this much plot… that's a monster of a fic. I shouldn't be surprised-- Night Ocean was the same way. I must be doing something wrong. ^_~

At any rate, hear is the first chapter of what was supposed to be a brief Epilogue for Night Ocean. I had promised the OP a few other kinks-- among them, collaring-- and a fluffy-yet-creepy ending. Then this little 'plot' (term used loosely ^_~) bunny got a hold of my foot and wouldn't let go. Madness. I promise, promise there will be more emo pr0n and actual pr0n in the next two chapters… dark-and-morally-ambiguous!Charles just sort of got away from me for a moment. X_x;;

As always, I would be so incredibly grateful if you could take the time to comment. I really appreciate you taking the time to read my story, and I'd love to hear what you think.

Obviously, this won't make much sense without Night Ocean. And, like its predecessor, it is so TOTALLY not safe for work. NC-17, dudes; if not right this moment, then in the next two chapters, and definitely with some of the adult themes of D/s, captivity, and power exchange. Obviously, I am a Cherik shipper, so I promise you this *is* a love story, for them. *frowns at Erik… and Charles*

TW for this chapter: Mind-control, irresponsible use of telepathy, non-traditional families, conspiracy, D/s themes in a relationship, dark!Charles, an Erik who receives mail at an address in Stockholm. ^___^
