Warnings:  Mentions of torture, lots of blood, gore, Shaw (he's a warning all on his own). 
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. I know it's early to update, but I'm aware that the subsequent cliffhangers are annoying you, so I thought it best we just got this over with as soon as possible.

Harsh chapter ahead. DON'T  READ IF YOU'RE ABOUT TO GO TO BED. YES, YOU. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. Guys I know the abrupt cliffhangers are getting old real fucking fast, but LJ has these goddamn space limitations and I can't cover as much ground in a chapter as I would normally like. I promsie we'll get around the bend in the road in a couple more chapters and we'll be done!

“This is unsettling,” Erik says honestly.  )

Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. LJ. I am begginning to hate you. So, I managed to steal borrow someone's internet for a while, so we all get an update of this. You guys, I'm pretty sure this chapter will be underwhelming after the last one. Sorry you bring you all down :(
If you've ever had a migraine (and I'm sorry for you, I feel your pain) you'll sympathise with this poor man.

Time, probably, continues to roll past. Erik doesn’t notice it.  )

Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. Guys, sorry it took me so unforgivably long to update this thing, I didn't have a chance on Saturday after all and I don't have internet in my new apartment yet. It's dirving me insane. I'm at a Starbucks right now. I'll try to update on Monday or Tuesday.
Fucking Lj is fucking with my format again, I'm going to have to fix it by hand. YOU GUYS MUST KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU otherwise I wouldn't bother.





“Charles,” Erik interrupts, reaching out his right hand. “Stop stalling. I think we’re both ready.”  )

Title: Brief Lives (9/?)

Author: monstrousreg

Word count:  3339

Warnings:  None in this chapter. 

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. A bit of a change of pace--a character study of Erik, instead of Charles. For those of you who picked up on the fact that Erik was a little too perfect. Because I like to make my characters a little ugly sometimes, and as George Martin would say--no one is safe. What the hell is wrong with LJ? Why's it messing up my formatting??
NOTICE: I am going update again tomorrow early in the morning. I know it's too soon and you'll not have time to process this chapter, but I'll have to do it because more than likely I won't be able to update again until Thursday after this. I'll see what I can do, but I can't promise anythig and I didn't want to leave you hanging.







Charles has been gone for the last two days—not, as Erik initially suspected, as an attempt to avoid confrontation. There’s a moment of silence. It must be all the more confusing for Charles.
Its metal hums and sings at him, calling out to his gift like light calls at a moth. Erik can feel every single little part of it, every screw and slab or flattened iron down to the smallest coils.  )

Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. So... This chapter might seem like little plot advancement takes place, but Charles does actually make a leap of faith fucking finally. I noticed more than one of you asked, so about Charles and Raven working for the CIA: it was their initiative, they weren't recruited. Being employed by the relatively powerful CIA gives them a rather strong shield against Shaw in the sense that they can't just disappear. Shaw would have to take one too many risks to kill them, expecially after Charles so kindly set the hounds suits on his trail.

“He didn’t do it on purpose, I don’t think,” Ororo offers in a small voice. “He did feel terrible about it.”  )

So, I know you're probably not going to be thrilled with a certain development in this chapter but don't worry, Erik will be getting onto that soon enough. You know, good-old I-get-what-I-want Erik.

Guys. Guys, I know the Camaro came out in 69, but we're talking telepaths and metallokinetics here so could we maybe extend the suspension of disbelief to cars, too? I just. I love the classic Camaro.

“So then what are we waiting for?” he asks bluntly, swiftly deciding if this is the road Xavier wants to go down, then he’s going to be the one taking the lead. He can play rough. Rough is his game.  )

Charles’ eyes dart away, shoulders pulling in as if he were trying to curl in on himself. Erik feels something tight inside his chest coil in even tighter as his stomach turns.

Notes: Fill for this prompt. Chapter 1

Notes: Fill for this prompt: Erik and Charles get into a serious fight.It can be about whatever but pre-divorce please.They're screaming when Erik brings his hand up to brush his hair out of his eyes-and Charles flinches. Cue lots of H/C, guilt and protectiveness on Erik's part, and maybe Charles talking to Erik about his abusive parents.

 

“You have your traumas,” he says quietly, turning on the stove. “Young master Charles has his.” )

Summary: Erik and Charles, before the beach, in a house together but in different shores of a river. An errant thought from Erik makes them face some truths, and bridges begin to burn.

Notes: So. THE BEACH SCENE. Look, I don't know if this even makes sense, I need a fucking beta to slap me around. This feels sort of disjointed and not completely coherent to me, but any way I turn it around, it's he same thing and I'm just stuck on small wording. I hope the general idea comes through, idk idk. You will all hate this chapter so fucking much it's not even funny omg
