Rectober #3: X-Men Recs  
Charles/Erik from X-Men was this past month's obsession. I got into them a while ago, but I think I got distracted by something else shiny before I really had a chance to read/rec too many things. So I figured it was time to remedy that! This might be the largest of my rec posts this month and there is a good amount of variety here as well. :D

I'm [obviously] very attracted to pairings that have that love/hate dynamic, so I don't think I ever stood a chance against these two. Getting more back story in First Class and seeing their chemistry together was really just the nail in the coffin. Such a wonderful pairing, and so much history to play around with.

Content/Notes forced proximity, xmen kink
Summary: Charles and Erik are stuck in a small enclosed space together, (air duct? broom closet? locker? etc.) "Bad guys" have just entered their general vicinity and Erik clamps a hand down over Charles' mouth. It's not safe to move/let alone breathe, (the "bad guys" are just settling in), and with Charles' back pressed tight against his front, Erik's body can't help but react.

Summary: “You know, I’m still not convinced,” Charles says as Erik pushes him back onto the bed, wriggling up the mattress until his head is firmly propped on the small mountain of pillows he insists he needs, body lithe and comfortably naked on top of the coverlet. He looks up at Erik through his lashes like a peepshow of blue, a small coy curl to the corner of his mouth. “I mean, you’re good, darling, but I’m not convinced you’re that good. No offence.”

Title: Between Rage and Serenity
Author: papercutperfect
Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,756
Content/Notes first time, bottom!charles
Summary: The gang gets the idea that it would be good to get some training in hand-to-hand combat without the use of their powers, and since Erik has spent a good portion of his life kicking ass he's the obvious choice for their teacher. Charles, naturally, needs some one-on-one training that involves lots of sweaty body contact and ends in a battle for dominance between Erik and Charles. Anywho, it's all fun and games until someone gets an erection. Cue aggressive, down and dirty sex, complete with tearing clothes off each other, biting, pinching, marking... the works.
Oh god, so hot, with Erik teaching them all physical combat and then, of course, his session with Charles getting a bit out of hand, in the sexiest way.

Word Count: 4,086
Content/Notes AU: No Powers, AU: High School, first time, dirty talk, bottom!charles
Summary: Charles only knew three things about Erik Lehnsherr:
1. His father and mother, Jakob and Edie Lehnsherr, worked for his family. Jakob as a handyman and Edie was the cook of the Xavier household.
2. Erik Lehnsherr was angry most of the time. That’s why people said he joined the football team, to channel his anger elsewhere. He’s probably angrier on the inside.
3. And most importantly, it was a matter of national importance that Charles should get into his pants as soon as possible.
Cute High School Au with some crazy hot sex.

Word Count: 4,626
Content/Notes bottom!charles, 1st class kink
Summary: A story where Charles and Erik have basically been together from the first time they met. The whole fate, wow we found each other thing. Now I would like the others not to know and try to bring the two 'oblivious' guys together. They of course enjoy this quite a lot (1stclass-kink request.).
OMG this fic is awesome. Hot and super funny!

Author: favicon lanasauli
Pairings: Charles/Erik, implied Hank/Raven
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,096
Content/Notes AU: No Beach Divorce, established relationship, secret relationship, implied bottom!charles
Summary: Post-Cuba fix-it, no beach divorce, woo!
Charles starts to get feeling back in his legs because of cool physiological reasons. Meanwhile, Erik battles his guilt, Hank plays doctor, and Raven is a sassypants. Awkward uses of angst and humor. But it's mostly fluff and romance, honestly.
Lovely fic that deals with the aftermath of Charles' paralysis and his slow healing. I loved how this fic approached Charles and Erik's relationship and how the events of First Class would affect it. Charles' voice in particular was excellent.

Title: Show Us The Sky
Author: favicon Pangea
Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 5,231

Content/Notes AU: No Powers, boss/employee relationship, dirty talk, bottom!charles, office!sex, desk!sex, sexting
Summary: When Charles sexts his boss instead of his latest squeeze during one late night of report writing, the first thing he expects is a sexual harassment law suit and the last thing is Mr. Lehnsherr actually fucking him hard into his desk.
(Or the one where the moral of this story is don't check who you sext if you want your boss to bone you.)
Guhhh, so, so hot! Fantastic dirty talk in this one. :D

Title: Trying to create the next world war
Author: aesc | favicon aesc
Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,480
Content/Notes alternate first meeting, bottom!charles
Summary: The voice's owner is a young man, maybe a handful of years younger than Erik, with the earnest expression worn by a boy who's never grown up. He's very correctly academic in a dark waistcoat and collared shirt, although the collar is very incorrectly unbuttoned to display a hint of throat – enough, Erik decides, to want to lick. [Or, the one inspired by this moment-inducing gifset, where for some reason Erik's decided to work for the CIA as a means to an end and gets sent to England instead of Moira.]
Alternate first meeting where Erik is consulting with the CIA to help him find Shaw and is sent to meet with Charles for info. And then hot sex happens.

Title: All the Stars Were Falling
Author: verilyvexed | favicon verilyvexed
Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 6,624
Content/Notes first time, bottom!charles
Summary: Kinkmeme fill: Erik finds Charles in his bed rather than Raven. Can be read as a missing scene, or you can squint and pretend it means the Beach Divorce never happens.
(I meant for it to be a PWP, but the Raven-in-the-bed scene takes place right after the Chess Match of No Peace, and... well, angst happened. And weird star metaphors.)
Hot fic with Charles replacing Raven in Erik's bed during First Class. But a bit bittersweet with the open ending, though I suppose we can all pretend the end of of First Class doesn't happen and they live happily ever after.

Title: Walling in or Walling Out
Author: stlkrchck | favicon stlkrchck
Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,352

Summary: Erik stifles a sigh. Of course this is Mr. C. F. Xavier. Of course.
For the prompt: Charles and Raven are throwing a holiday party. Erik is the grumpy neighbor who is annoyed by how loud they are being. So he goes to complain, and Charles makes it up to him.
Oh this was such a fun universe and a light, fun fic.

Summary: Charles works at a shoe store. Erik walks in and asks for size fifteen shoes.
Ever the empiricist, Charles decides to test the correlation between shoe size and...other size.
Wonderful AU with a damn hot blow job.

Title: Not So Much the Teacup

Wonderfully light fic with a surprisingly believable wedding planner Charles, and a grumpy/sexy architect Erik. Sexy and fun.

Love this fic! Super funny and sexy and light with particularly humorous cameos from the "children".

Title: Chessmen
Author: zamwessell | favicon zamwessell
Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 10,738
Content/Notes rimming, first time, implied switching, bottom!charles, road trip
Summary: Erik Lehnsherr’s mind was a castle, he thought, then dismissed the thought as silly and somehow over-dramatized. But he could not come up with anything better – castle indeed, with the dark corners, the sudden turnings, the hidden treasure-rooms with their guardian dragons. Perhaps the metaphor was less inapt than he had thought. He wanted to roam those corridors for hours, learn the twists and turns, find the minotaurs in that labyrinth and know them too.
Crazy hot fic with wonderful characterization and a very believable build-up.

Title: Age Difference AU Series (3 Fics)
Author: grim_lupine | favicon grim_lupine
Pairings: Charles/Erik, background Angel/Raven
Rating: NC-17 overall
Word Count: 11,383
Content/Notes AU: No Powers, first time, age difference, bottom!charles, outsider POV (for fic #2)
Summary: Raven is six years older than Charles; Charles has never really considered this age difference vitally important in one way or another, except to decide that even if Raven were six years younger than Charles, she would probably boss him around in the exact same way. He doesn’t really think much of the difference between fifteen and twenty-one, until Raven comes home from college for a study weekend with her new best friend in tow, introduces him cheerfully as Erik Lehnsherr, and Charles finds himself falling head-over-heels into a train wreck of doomed lust.
Lovely little series with age difference, and innocent Charles, and sexy Erik, and eventually super hot sex! Loved the alternating POVs with each fic, and the switch up of Raven being the older one was a fun change.

Title: Blood and Steel and Miles Between

Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 29,464
Content/Notes first time, bottom!charles, ambiguous/open ending, xmen big bang 2011
Summary: (Post-movie AU.) On a beach in Cuba, Charles manages to talk Erik down from the edge. But even after the missiles have been diverted, compromise is impossible. There are two different futures to build, and Erik and Charles will always be separated by their principles. But when Charles is kidnapped and the X-Men can't find him, Erik will get him back no matter the consequences.
Meanwhile, trapped alone in his mind for the first time in his life, Charles comes face to face with the truth about what and who he wants. When convictions stand in direct opposition to the heart, which will prevail?
Oh this is gorgeous and so believable and heartbreaking. Wonderful characterizations, beautifully written, with fabulous chemistry. Beware the ambiguous ending though.

This fic is just so delightful. Seriously funny and really damn hot with a wonderful chemistry and relationship development between Erik and Charles.

Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 30,403
Content/Notes AU: No Beach Divorce, bottom!charles, bonding!fic, xmen big bang 2011
Summary: (Movie-Concurrent AU.) When Charles forges a telepathic link between himself and Erik, the two men find themselves bound together by more than just destiny. With the world on the brink of war, Charles and Erik struggle to cope with a psychic connection that may well be permanent.
Really wonderful fic that basically follows along First Class, with the addition of accidental bonding! I loved how the bond is portrayed here and how it affects their growing emotions. The ending is gorgeous and a bit heartbreaking (because it really does follow First Class canon pretty closely), but it felt all the more realistic for it, and it's certainly more promising then how First Class ends in canon!

Title: Good Boys

Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 34,997
Content/Notes first time, shower!sex, rimming, light bondage, dirty talk, bottom!charles, rough sex, light D/s, face-fucking
Summary: Charles has always been a good boy.
Crazy hot fic that takes place during the mutant-finding road trip in First Class. I loved how Charles really struggled with coming to terms with his sexuality, which isn't something I've read a lot of, but makes sense for the time period. There is a lot of sex and it is unbelievably hot. Sexy, seductive Erik and helplessly aroused Charles who is just desperate for it.

Title: Into the Jungle
Author: madneto | favicon madneto

Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 56,756
Content/Notes AU: Fusion, AU: No Powers, AU: Historical, Tarzan fusion, first time, period typical homophobia, bottom!erik, x men big bang 2013
Summary: Ever since he can remember, Erik's always been different from the rest of his family. He's tried to fit in, encouraged by his mother and his friends, but Logan, the troop's silverback, has never acknowledged him as one of their own. Still, Erik is determined to become the best ape ever, until one day, strangers arrive in the jungle. Strangers that look just like Erik.
Tarzan AU written for the X-Men Big Bang Challenge.
I don't think I have ever read a Tarzan fusion before and I was a bit hesitant, especially since half the X-men characters are gorillas. But it honestly works really well! I loved how everybody was worked in, and the connection between wild Erik and scientist Charles was so lovely.

Content/Notes AU: Alternate First Meeting, telepathic!sex, bottom!charles, mention of past non-con, disabled!charles
Summary: He had been following Xavier's career for years. He had read and reread and reread again everything the man had written. He had tried, on more occasions than he could count, to recruit Xavier into the Brotherhood, but each request for a meeting had been denied. Aside from his work, no one knew anything about Xavier. Not what he looked like, not the full extent of his power--though from what little they did know, he was by far the most powerful telepath in existence--and not what his intentions were.
The man was a recluse. As far as Magneto knew, Xavier had never once stepped foot outside his impenetrable Westchester manor. And now he was scheduled as the keynote speaker for the largest pro-mutant conference in the world.
Truly wonderful fic with a wheelchair-bound, reclusive Charles, and a slightly less fanatical Erik. I loved watching their realtionship grow and develop and the whole thing felt like a very believable alternate course of events. Everybody was wonderfully characterized and I liked how the canons were blended and slightly altered to fit in this AU. The chemistry was lovely between Erik and Charles, and I haven't read many fics that have Charles in the chair, but it was so beautifully done here.

Title: Anarchy In The U.K.
Author: yahtzee63 | favicon Yahtzee
Pairings: Charles/Erik, Raven/OMC, past Erik/Shaw, past Charles/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 162,328
Content/Notes AU: Royalty, AU: No Powers, prince!charles, writer!erik, switching, light bondage, blindfolds, rimming, wall!sex
Summary: "Good God, Erik thought. The Prince of Wales is gay."
Charles lives in the unceasing glare of the public spotlight, yet keeps his sexual orientation a closely held secret, afraid he could lose his throne and force his deeply troubled younger sister into a role that would crush her. Erik, journalist and world traveler, has been a loner most of his life; he has little patience for closet cases. But a chance meeting in Kenya brings these two opposites together and sets in motion a love affair that will challenge the British monarchy -- and their most deeply held beliefs about who they are, and who they should be.
God this fic is just so freaking amazing!!! Loved how on point the characterizations were for both Erik and Charles and how seamlessly everybody was incorporated into this AU. The relationship development was perfectly paced and chemistry between them was just mind-blowing. Plus crazy hot switching sex! There are also several other small fics and oneshots in the verse.

I haven't read the whole post just saw the topic and searched for... 'anarchy' and now I'm screwed.
I wanted to rec Anarchy in the UK as well in Rectober. LOL
My list of other fandom fics is dwindling. :)

However, a wonderful and great story with the right amount of sex and feelings and my favourite side character- the 'bitchy' queen with her dry humour. And I loved the end- to compare a real event with this description. I loved it.

You can totally still rec t! It's definitely fabulous enough to warrant two recs! :D

I need to check my stock. Maybe I will. And yes, it's worth more than one rec. :D

Edit: Great, now LJ shows only my default pic.
Nevertheless I forgot a thing. Of course I'll try and read a few of your other recs. Charles and Erik are a pairing I really like.

Ugh, she's amaaaaazing! matchsticks and milkshakes for Sterek, I love everything about that series!

It's the best thing when you take a look at their profile, and you're just like, "wow i ship all of these too can we get married pls" lmao

I'm all about her Sterek fic By Any Other Name, which is super impressive because I'm normally not a fan of amnesia!fic. She's written at last one fic in what feels like every single fandom.

But yes, I totally agree. Looking at an author's profile and realizing they have all the same ships as you is like christmas! :D
