erik-lamesherr asked: An angsty and possibly painful fic prompt (inspired by a text post I can't seem to find right now) in celebration of you reaching 1K! <3 Charles/Erik tearily singing to a dying Erik/Charles in their arms.. Living character gets overwhelmed with sadness and grief, so the dying character continues singing in order to console the other.
D: I reject that reality and substitute my own.
Erik is in the middle of running his sword through his opponent, steel blade slipping fatally in between ribs with a wet crunch of bone, when he hears it. The battle is loud and raging all around him, the screams and cries of other men backed by the heavy thuds and crashes of metal on metal, but the sound cuts straight through all of it, an arrow piercing directly into his heart like a bullseye.
It’s somewhere between a choked-off cry and breathy gasp, high and pained with a tinge of shocked surprise. Erik whirls around, his gaze slicing through the chaos of battle and landing on Charles, just in time to watch his enemy yank his sword back out of Charles’ stomach, Charles’ entire body jerking with the motion, giving another helpless, involuntary whimper, swaying in slow motion.
When he falls, Erik’s entire world goes crashing down with him.
Erik sees red.
Anonymous asked: oh god imagine Erik's guilt in x2 and x3 where he basically orchestrates Charles' death twice in a row and he hates himself more than he can put into words but he had to do it to build a better world for his people, his basically children, and dammit it's Charles' fault for being so damn stubborn and if Charles insists on dying for humans who'll never thank him, then dammit he'll have to be dealt with even if all Erik wants is to carry him out of there and rule this new world together
So today this guy accidentally hit me with the door when he was walking out of a classroom and instead of saying sorry he just looked me over and said ‘pretty cute’ and walked away . And then I realized . I literally just got hit on . The pun is greater than the pain .
I guess you could say that he adores you
get the fuck out
