Author: monstrousreg
Word count:  3772
Warnings:  none for 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. 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 should talk,” he says, blue eyes troubled. “About what upset you the last time you were here.” )

Word count:  3607
Warnings:  Angst, NC-17 for smut and violence.
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.  )

Word count:  2939
Warnings:  Angst, NC-17 for smut and violence.
Pairing: Erik/Charles.
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.  )

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. 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.  )

Pairing: Erik/Charles.

Summary: There's a locked door in Xavier Hall to which no one has access. In making inquiries, Erik realizes he's built his opinion on Charles on the wrong foundations.

“You thought I was going to hit you?”

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: 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.” )
