Title: The Bell's Toll (4/?)
Author: monstrousreg
Word count:  2645
Warnings:  Violence, fast pacing, eventual NC-17. So, uh, the usual for me, I suppose. 
Pairing: Erik/Charles.
Summary: Nikkita AU inspired by this prompt. A sort of fusion between the two series, with a healthy (or not) dose of my own imagination. Charles Xavier goes to prison, and is recruited by a spy/assassin division of the government. Dismal a beginning as this might look, it unbelievably goes downhill. Erik, the necessary stoic ex-military man, gets sidled with him. Not a single person is amused.      
Notes: Unbetaed, and stuff. Look, I don't even know, Charles is insane, this is probably my subconscious telling me to murder someone. I'm just... going to go along for the ride, because I feel like writing something fast and violent. But for those of you concerned, Erik is unlikely to ran into grievous bodily harm anytime soon at any point.

For those in the back row whispering they knew it already, 

<img src="http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h375/MonstrousRegiment/mcAvoypunch.gif" alt="title or description" />

I'm only saying I'm completely crazy because I can spot the evidence when it's spitting me in the face, and um. I don't think normal random people find themselves in the dentist, suffering through a tooth extraction (well, not suffering, he put so much anesthesia there i didn't know where my face was, but you get it) while attempting to distract their mind by um. Reciting stuff. 

More accurately reciting the Verbose Speech from V for Vendetta, and bits and pieces of Shakespeare's St Crispin's Day Speech. 

I've also discovered I apparently have a great memory for... completely random, meaningless shit. Who would've said?

In other news, I wanted to ask you guys your opinion on Charles on Bell's Toll. Should I try to reel him back in, or just... let him run wild like it seems he wants to? Inquiring minds wish to know.

Notes: Unbetaed, and stuff. So, this Charles just went from mildly dark and mostly annoyed to um. Something else. I don't even know. I'm sorry it took this long to update this, you know I usually try to update once a week, but RL is been... hell.

Title: Brief Lives (24/25)
Author: monstrousreg
Word count:  3506
Warnings:  NC-17, I suppose.
Pairing: Erik/Charles.
Summary: Erik thinks he's going to seduce, interrogate and murder some nondescript CIA intelligence agent, and winds up biting more than  he can chew. Charles is not keen on being murdered, he doesn't favor interrogations, and he's certainly not willing to be seduced. That he's not cooperating is midly put.   
Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. To be perfectly honest, at this point I'm just indulging.

“I’m not scared of you and you big teeth,” Charles huffs, grinning widely.  )

Title: Brief Lives (23/25)

Summary: Erik thinks he's going to seduce, interrogate and murder some nondescript CIA intelligence agent, and winds up biting more than he can chew. Charles is not keen on being murdered, he doesn't favor interrogations, and he's certainly not willing to be seduced. That he's not cooperating is midly put.   
Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. Eeep. I hope this isn't completely ridiculous and stupid and you think I whould never write sex again in my life. I'M SORRY. Oh. and it possibly ends on a rather disturbing note.


“I got my own eyes wrong?” Erik is unimpressed.  )

Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff.  Ehh, lots of indulgence in this chapter, I must admit. Just, fluff. Oh, and anachronisms again, because Star Trek, but what is that you're saying? Timelines? I laugh in the face of your timelines!

Chapter 23

Title:  Thirty Pushes. Two Breaths.
Author: monstrousreg
Word count:  2835
Warnings:  There's mentions of violence and nudity, I suppose?
Pairing: Erik/Charles.
Summary: For this prompt (I know what you're thinking. You're thinking I need to stop snooping around the pompts. But I got fired yesterday and now I'm depressed and I'm using the time to write, so.. just ignore me.)

A somewhat nice afternoon out turns into a nightmare when the boys are attacked and Charles is dumped into an icy river in the Russian winter. Erik gets the chance to return Charles' reckless kindness, and then some.

Thirty pushes. Two breaths. )

Title: A Good Man (Does Not) Go To War
Author: monstrousreg
Word count:  3894
Warnings:  ehh, Eleven being Eleventy.
Pairing: Erik/Charles.
Summary: For this prompt: The usual thing where the Doctor pops up on the beach when Erik is about to kill everyone. I like it when Charles already knows the Doctor, but it's not necessary.

Now the point. I want the Doctor to come down on Erik. For Erik to be all "they'll never change, this is the only way, blah blah blah" and for the Doctor to pretty much be all "yea, this isn't happening because I'm here and I'm over 900 years old, am the last of my race, seen more war and genocide than you are capable of imagining and you are wrong."

....you know? Doctor being the Doctor and being our own personal fix-it.

   
Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. I uh, admittedly deviated a little from the prompt, and might eventually return and re-do it properly, because this idea just catches my attention every single time.

“No, because you won’t let it,” the Doctor said. “You’re different now, harder and stronger and older, and taller, you’re very tall, I hadn’t noticed. Were you always this tall?” )

Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. So, uh, I finished writing this story, so I'll be updating at the old rhythm again until the end. I can't believe I dragged this out to 25 chapters o.O

Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. Guys I'm SO sorry it's taken me this long to update, I don't know what happened to my brain last week. I also didn't reply to your comments but I will, I just, I have to go to the bank and camp there, so that might take a while, and I wanted to update first. When I come back I'll reply, promise.

We're fast approaching the end of this story =) I'm just wrapping up the last of the plot points and we'll be done in, say, 4 or 5 more chapters, I think.

My LJ for other chapters. I'll start editing them now, including a link for the following one.

Charles throws up mental shields so harshly and quickly that both he and Erik wince.  )

Guys, I'm so sorry this took so long. My brain turned off for like a week. I'm working on editing a novel I wrote and I went to a publishing conference, and I've done... nothing the whole week. I didn;t even work this week. Eh. I don't know. This chapter feels a little off, to be honest.

“Several times,” Fraser replies, grinning. “But I told them that I’m a taken man, and why—I couldn’t live if I didn’t have Erik to tell me to go fuck myself in German at least once a day.”  )

I just feel like putting something forth, because I can't really explain to my sister how I feel.

I want a job. Like, I really want a job, something that I don't absolutely fucking hate (like the brief soul-death of the Call Center I was in like, 10 months and nearly killed msyelf). I can't get a job because the world economy is a mess, so i though I could work as an English teacher for a while. I don't--I don't hate it, but it doesn't make me happy, the money's not good at all, and it demands a lot of time. I'm not satisfied. It's not enough.

And this is the problem, here. I mean... why isn't it ever enough? I don't imagine myelf working in an office for the rest of my life... I want to be a writer, I want to be free to travel and live my life at my own rhythm. Is that insane? I'm sick of people dictating how I'm supposed to live my life. I graduated college because my parents insisted, and now that I have the degree, it's good for absolutely nothing. I kind of feel robbed, with that. Conned. Wasn't a degree supposed to fix everything? What did I waste 4 years of my life to be one of the top averages of my graduation class for?

I'm 24. 'I don't hate it' and 'it doesn't make me fucking miserable' shouldn't be sufficiently satisfying ways to describe my life. I feel cheated. I wish the world stopped giving everyone ideas of how the life of a young, successful professional woman should be, because hello: your ideas are skewed and mistaken.

I feel--cheated. By the world. In general.

Now what I wonder is whether my feeling of not being satisfied is just a passing bad moment that I'm currently stuck in, or just... you know, a general permament state of existence. I want to be happy one day, I want to, you know, stop a second randomly at some point of the day and be able to say 'life is good. Right now, right here, I'm happy.'.

That's not what I feel right now, and it worries me.

Pairing: Erik/Charles.
Summary: Atonement AU or crossover, rather.
Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. I know you guys are waiting for the next Brief Lives update and it's coming, it's just this idea ate my brain, so I want to post it an be done with it. Anyway Brief Lives is nearly over and in a good place right now.

I'd be lying if I were to say I know what I wrote this for, or where it was supposed to go. I'm not even sure it makes sense, but it's out of my skull, and I'll drink to that.

Charles has a finely-crafted ceramic vase on the crook of his right arm, and he offers it to Erik with a gesture.  )

Summary: Atonement AU or crossover, rather.
Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. This is really heavy on the angst, so i don't know why I'm posting it on a Saturday *shrug* I thought I'd try out a new format, an non-linear, non-chronological story for a change. Let's see how it works out.

Erik Lehnsherr goes to prison accused of a crime he didn’t commit—a crime he would never commit.  )

Charles is not keen on being murdered, he doesn't favor interrogations, and he's certainly not willing to be seduced. That he's not cooperating is midly put.   
Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. I don't even know what's up with this chapter, it just felt nice to write them not bleeding out and struggling and stuff. Does that make sense?
