After I’ve read Tahariels  and spicedpiano amazing Cherik fanfic White Nights , just need to do something.  xD I chose Charles and Erik marriage ( or something near that. A presentation for their vassals, maybe?)
Hope you like it, girls.

If Older Erik went back in time.

Then he could coddle charles and stroke his hair and whisper sweet things to him and basically just be a solid support.

And then with his younger self just grab him by the shirt collar and be all like, “It took 50 god damn years for us to put our relationship back on track, so listen here you little punk whatever plan you have just stop right now and go take care of Charles, and never leave him again.”

… “Also marry him as soon as you can I’ve left some brochures to places that allow Gay marriage.”

"…. I also packed you condoms, use them."

"Ok boys I’m done here, the future is saved, if you need anything let me know!!"

IF ONLY

Okay, but older Erik’s consciousness going back into the body of younger Erik.

All the older Erik’s suavity and dash and hard-earned wisdom, in control of the younger Erik’s body and his life in 1973.

(Fassbender doing his Ian McKellen impression for most of a movie!)

Older Erik wakes up in younger Erik’s body, breaks his own damn self out of prison (in the comics, by the time he’s older Erik’s age, Erik’s using magnetism to create black holes, he gives no fucks). He goes directly to Charles, takes his greeting punch to the face with good grace, and comes right back up to say, “I don’t want to waste any more time. I’m sorry for everything, and I love you. I’ll love you til the end of my days.” The older Erik remembers the world he left, the last things he said to his Charles, and his voice thickens. “I would have given anything for more time with you… and now, here we are.”

Of course, Charles doesn’t just melt into his arms. They have a confrontation, Charles angry and shouting, older Erik determined to draw on the patience of all his years and just accept it, accept that he let Charles down and hurt him— knowing he’ll do even worse later, if they can’t change the way things are here and now.

Imagine how much more poignant it would be when the older Erik proves he’s from the future by telling Charles things that Charles has never told anyone. ;____;

Picture Erik being the one to tell Charles that he’s needed and loved and his best will be enough.

And in every spare moment not spent on fixing the timeline or making love to Charles, older Erik writes letters to himself, so that when older Erik’s consciousness returns to his own time, the younger Erik will be left with letter after letter of the older Erik’s memories, confessions, and regrets— and most of all, instructions on how to do it better, this time.

WHY WOULD YOU SAY ALL THAT? ::WAILS FOREVER::

Anonymous said: hi! I saw that post about AUs that ain't coffee shop and you had this tag about xmfc fanfics and YES, YOU HAVE MY UNDIVIDED ATTENTION. CAN YOU SHARE ANY FICS/RECS THAT ARE RELATED TO THOSE AUs? Pretty please?

jabletown:

oohhhh man! xmfc fandom and AUs! there is wayyyy too much to choose from here. we have manifold assloads of AUs. so i’m going to help you but any list i make is not going to cover nearly enough of the amazing variety of AUs we have.

but i’ll start with that more than coffeeshop AU post.

Modern Royalty AU

Egyptologist/Treasure Hunt AU

Rockstar & Groupie AU

I’d like to include as a subcategory of this, the Fame/Actor AU

Librarian/Bibliophilia/Library setting AU

Struggling Artist AU

1920s Con Artist/Bootlegging AU

1920s AUs, not necessarily about lawbreaking

Internet Friends AU

AUs like the previously mentioned Time Travel, Rebelling Against the Govt, and Running from the Police I’m not going to bother with really because those are strong themes in X-Men canon and there are too many fics to count about that.

But wait, there’s more!

I’m going to do a few more little rec listets about some of my fave AU categories.

Detective and/or Serial Killer AU

Fantasy Culture Clash AUs

They are animals

They are inanimate objects

For anymore crack you may want to just check the infamous "James McAvoy is" post and the cherik!crack post before this gets out of control.

Some XMFC fandom AU specialties are Space AUs, Regency AUs, Fairytale AUs, D/s AUs, and Dadneto AUs. And I think I’d need to do a whole separate list to do justice to those. (If someone else wanted to do those it’d be greatly appreciated!) I have literally never once run out of things to read in this fandom. In fact, opposite. Still too much to read.

Whoo! AU masterpost!

Anonymous said: Who's your favorite cherik author?

gerec:

Anon I’m sorry it took me so long to answer this one! 

There are a LOT of authors in this fandom I admire, and plenty more who produce consistently amazing work so I can’t possibly narrow it down to just one favorite! But I CAN give you a list (non-comprehensive) of some of my all time favorite Cherik fics:

Undone by Yahtzee

Anarchy in the UK is arguably my favorite modern au fic in fandom but THIS gem is my favorite of the many great fics written by Yahtzee (and one of the first Cherik fics I ever read along with Replay). I love that you get to see the story from both Charles and Erik’s POVs. I love the idea of a post X3 Charles time traveling back to pre Cuba divorce, forcing him to try and fix all the things that went wrong and dealing with a young Erik who hasn’t done all the terrible things he’s done to Charles yet. I probably don’t have to tell you that the characterization is amazing (because Yahtzee always writes Charles and Erik beautifully) but yeah…amazing.

Replay and Numbers by Unforgotten

I always tend to think of the Timeline series by Unforgotten as the 'funnier, slightly crackier but just as awesome' twin to Undone. The premise is similar - post X2 Charles goes back in time to pre Cuba divorce to show Erik a different path. With sex. A lot of sex. I love it so much it still makes me laugh out loud every time I read it. :)

Your Heart Just Couldn’t Wait by Pookaseraph

This is my go-to fic when I want some warm, funny, slightly angsty but happily-ever-after modern au. You can’t really beat the winning combination that is teacher Erik in love with student Charles (done in an entirely adorable and not ‘ewwww underage’ way) along with the besties 5ver friendship between Charles and Tony Stark. Soooo good. 

Curve Fitting by kianspo

I don’t think I’ve ever read another fic that deals so brilliantly with the Charles/Erik/Raven dynamic; I love how well written all three of them are, growing up in this case as siblings. And especially that Raven’s relationship with Charles and Erik isn’t about sex or being in love with both or either of them. This is also probably the most heart wrenching fic I’ve read where Cherik actually gets a happy ending :D.

The Bell’s Toll by Monstrous Regiment

I admit to having an unholy love for what fandom calls Dark!Charles - mainly because it’s not often done (and done well). How this fic makes me empathize with Charles when he’s so incredibly unlikeable at times has me in awe. And I’m equally amazed at the feral viciousness that is Erik Lehnsherr when he comes into his own in the latter parts of this fic. The fact that these two CRAZY fucks are sooooo fucked up but so perfectly and brilliantly matched…I can’t even describe how much it thrills me to read it. Also it has one of the hottest sex scenes I’ve ever read in my life (if you’ve read it you know which one I’m talking about).

and these from atoms by kay_cricketed

Not much happens in this fic; it’s 29k words of Erik and Charles trapped underground in a coal mine, forced to rely on one another to find a way out. Atmospheric is the only way I can describe it; I can’t believe how engrossing it is to read a fic where Erik basically just stumbles around in the dark with Charles on his back (broken wheelchair). I hope the author finishes the fic someday; if nothing else I just want to know if the two of them ever make it out… 

There are so many (SO MANY) more that I could list but then I wouldn’t have anything left for the rec list I’m currently compiling! Suffice to say that I’ve read each of these fics many, many times and I’m certain I’ll be reading them again in the future! :D

geekinthepurple said: Do you know any fic where Erik is a professor and Charles is a student at university?

jabletown:

fuckyeahcherik:

Oh boy so many that i can’t think of them at the moment. There is one and I can’t remember the name (so community please help us out) but there was a great fix about Erik mistaking Charles as a student, when he is really a student. I will have to find it because it is wonderful.

Sort of related fave: After School Special by listerinezero.

Possibly y’all are looking for Nekosmuse’s Sonnet Series, in which they’re both professors but Erik thinks Charles is a student?

(Also yes read After School Special it is rad)

comedy-official:

Everything’s in alphabetical order, completed, and has a happy ending because sad endings are a no no. I was joking about it being badass; everything is generally happy. I hate sad fics.
IF YOU ARE A NEW CHERIK SHIPPER RECOVERING FROM XMFC OR DOFP OR JUST ANYBODY THAT NEEDS HAPPY FICS THIS IS FOR YOU.
But please do note that even though I said they’re generally happy, some will make your heart clench a bit, but in a really good way and the ending’s always happy!
This is my Ao3 if anybody is interested and all these are bookmarked there along with a few other stories I have yet to read. Also PM me if there’s anything you want to point out about this list.
* - Really recommend** - Highly, highly recommend/I’ve read this more than oncecrossed out - Shit I have to say about these fics
Chapter Stories

*Charles Xavier’s A+ Guide to Management (or, How to Completely Destroy Your Life Without Even Trying) by fro_baby
In which Charles and Erik run a newspaper, wrangle interns, outrun the feds, outwit multinational crime lord, get royally fucked over (twice), eat prawns, argue over comma errors, dodge (and fail to dodge) airborne projectiles, make many snarky remarks, drive around in the desert, fight, make up, fight again, and slowly (but surely) fall in love.
This may not sound like your kind of story but no matter your type you must read this.
*come as you are by scarlettblush
Hospital AU. The one where Charles unknowingly woos a coma patient with Pride and Prejudice. Years later, they meet again.
The Courtship by dvs
A story about a courtship that began five hundred years ago.
A Curious Carriage of Crystal and Cold by etharei
Charles, a miner from a poor village in the countryside, saves the life of Erik Lehnsherr, scion of a successful business family and the richest man on the planet Eisen. Charles is a telepath and somewhat anxious about it, while Erik abstains from relationships because the lights flicker and doors open and electronics vibrate when he gets too excited.
Also featuring a long-suffering sister, a foul-mouthed bodyguard, and a best friend with a heart that is definitely not gold.
In which there are princes, spaceships, long journeys, and old secrets uncovered. (An AU sci-fi fairytale)
This was thrown in for good measure, I haven’t finished it.
**If You Liked The Book, You’ll Hate The Movie by paperclipbitch
Modern-Day High School AU. It’s not until Hank realises half the class are glancing towards the back of the classroom with something like nerves and something like schadenfreude that he finds out Alex Summers is back.
*in the moonlight, on a joy ride by scarlettblush
Librarian AU. Charles is the young librarian and Erik is the college student who is completely besotted with him.
This is really good, I actually liked Shaw.
In The Punch Line by zamwessell (greencarnation)
Basically, Charles Xavier needs a date to his tenth high school reunion. Enter Erik Lehnsherr, Raven’s best friend, who happens to be a model and the new face of Calvin Klein.
**Lean On Me by SpiritsFlame
Ten years ago, Charles and Erik split up, dividing their six kids between them. None of them expect them to meet at summer camp. And no one could have predicted the results.
I’ve read this over four times. So. Good.
Let’s Go To Prison by mykkila09
Charles wouldn’t last one day in prison with the mouth on him. He leaned against the wall of their tiny cell. “I’m going to die, aren’t I?” he muttered to himself.
"No Charles," Erik said, coming closer, "I won’t let that happen to you," he trapped the smaller man against the wall with his hand and smiled predatorily at him, leaning in even closer. "I’ll offer you my protection," he trailed a finger down Charles’ face, "but you’ll have to give me something in return."
"Okay," Charles said on a whisper, closing his eyes and feeling as the other man brushed his nose past his cheek, almost as if he were smelling Charles—taking in his scent perhaps. A low moan came from the taller man, a rumbling from his throat, and Charles gasped slightly.
He just made a deal with the devil, didn’t he?
Not as serious or scary as it sounds, or how the tags make it sound, honest. It’s mainly humour and it’s actually adorable. Pretty much a black comedy?
**Made To Be Broken by Yahtzee
Charles makes a New Year’s Resolution:
“No more straight men,” Charles repeated as he began scrolling through the apartment directory for Emma’s name. “No more futility. No more pointless hoping and heartbreak. In 2013, I never want to hear the words ‘exception,’ ‘experimenting’ or ‘phase.’ If, God forbid, I hear ‘bicurious’ even once, I may take a hostage.”
Then he goes into the party, and Erik is there.
I’ve read this over and over again.
My Barbaric Darling by baehj2915
Erik is revivified caveman. Charles is the anthropologist(?) taking care of him. This is as ridiculous as it sounds. Romcom misunderstandings and prehistoric wooing ensues.
Our House, In The Middle Of The Street by clocks
Charles is a social worker who fosters troubled kids, and one day he meets Erik, an ex-convict, who reluctantly agrees to stay for only a while, but ends up staying for good and helping Charles to raise the kids. Awkward parenting ensues.
There’s a reason why this is the second most popular Cherik fic on Ao3.
Paper Monsters by clocks
Charles meets Erik Lehnsherr, his favorite novelist of all time at a coffee shop, but doesn’t know it’s him, and Erik just criticizes his own writing in front of his biggest fan.
Same author as above. Just as awesome.
**Shop Space by caradee
Charles and Erik break up but still meet at their favorite coffee shop and manage a completely friendly relationship. The kids who work the coffee shop don’t understand it, Charles’ overprotective twin brother doesn’t understand it, and even Charles doesn’t understand it. Then, Erik shows up with a new date, someone who seems to be everything that Charles is not.
How will the Professor handle the surprising heartbreak that comes seeing Erik with someone else?
I’ve read this over and over again.
*Space Jam by pangea
Prince Charles Xavier is Deputy Commander of the TEF Heartsteel and the newest mission they’ve been assigned starts out less than desirable and quickly goes downhill from there. It’s alright, though, he’ll cope.
It doesn’t help, though, that he’s in unrequited love with his best friend and Commander of the Heartsteel, War-Prince Erik Lehnsherr.
Even if you don’t like sci-fi this is a really good story and was very fun to read.

Long one-shots

Despicably Yours by Cesare, veryorangecat
Erik Lehnsherr, AKA Magneto, is a supervillain without equal… except maybe one: Charles Xavier, AKA Professor X, AKA Erik’s next door neighbor. When their competition heats up, Erik decides the only way to get ahead is to adopt four mutant orphans to infiltrate Charles’s mansion.
Things don’t go as planned.
This is a fusion of X-Men: First Class with the adorable animated film Despicable Me, but should comfortably stand alone!
Does not have enough recognition. And the art just fits in so perfectly and it’s just as adorable as the fic itself!
**Doing Something for Yourself by Pookaseraph
Erik is a hard working engineer and single dad, Charles runs a local Community Center where Wanda and Pietro spend their time after school. Erik accidentally makes Charles’ acquaintance one Wednesday evening when he’s running late from work. Erik has no idea if he stands a chance with his new acquaintance, but that isn’t going to keep him from falling for the guy.
One of my favourite kidfics.
Drifting Apart Without You by Krasimer
Erik Lehnsherr has been apartment hunting, trying to find that one amazing place. He needs it to be furnished, well lit, with a good view as an added bonus.
He does find a place. Too bad that it’s already got a tenant.
A ghost by the name of Charles.
So good. Honestly, it deserved more hits and comments and kudos and whatnot.
**Finally Moving by zarah5
In which Erik is the son of servants, Charles is the son of aristocrats, and hedgehogs make repeated appearances. — Modern AU that is clearly inspired by Atonement (minus most of the angst, that is).
Barely any angst. I personally don’t think it’s anything like Atonement except maybe for the library sex??
**First Impressions by sirona
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a spouse — or the nearest set of curtains to hide behind, if you were to believe Mr Charles Xavier. Little does he know that he himself will soon put test to that very truth.
A must read for me, but I am slightly biased as I’m a huge Austen fan and P&amp;P is probably my favourite Austen novel.
**Humane Society by smilebackwards
Once Erik finally allows himself to decide that Charles is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread, he spends the next week being incredibly bitter that he’s Charles’ cat and not his boyfriend.
I’ve read this so many times it’s just so adorable.
**Not So Much the Teacup by thehoyden
“Charles is basically the bride whisperer. It’s like he can read their minds.” (wedding planner AU)
Guys, just don’t think and read it. Do it!
**write this number down (you can call it anytime) by pocky_slash
When Erik upsets his children, they have a habit of running away from home—and straight to Charles’ school for cookies and consolation. Charles doesn’t mind the visitors, but as they appear more and more frequently, he realizes that sooner or later, he and Erik are going to have to talk about what happened on the beach and what it means for their future and the future of Erik’s children.
One of the best kidfics in my opinion.
you follow and i’ll lead by pearl_o, pocky_slash
When Charles discovers how frustrated and self-conscious his best friend Erik is about his ignorance about sex, he’s eager to volunteer to help teach him and practice. Charles might not have any more direct experience than Erik, but he does have a telepath’s mind full of accidentally picked-up fantasies and memories, as well as knowledge of a few dirty books - and more importantly, he’s been madly in love with Erik for years. This seems like a brilliant, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that he can’t pass up.
Now he just needs to manage to keep his feelings in check, and not ruin their friendship forever.
*Zweiundachtzig by Dow
Modern AU. Erik M. Lehnsherr is a private man, a jeweler that’s just looking for a studio to work in. But floorspace in New York is limited, so he ends up sharing a space with a beautiful mutant painter named Raven. Above them is a huge furry blue physicist, i.e. Mad scientist, and a glassblower that breaks half of what he makes when he starts laughing.
Drawn into their intricacies, Erik finds himself not only with friends but something that’s starting to frighteningly resemble a family. Then enter one, Charles Xavier; geneticist, lecturer, telepath, and mutant rights activist. Suddenly Erik is faced with dealing with a past he’s trying to forget and feelings he’s never had before.

One-shots

**5 Ways Logan Fixed Everything (Like a Boss) by Starlingthefool
What would have happened if Charles and Erik had managed to recruit Logan?
(In which Logan solves everyone’s problems through snark and BAMFery.)
Best fix it ever. I love this story and I’m not a big fan of fix its.
*Axis On A Tilt by Clocks
In which Erik takes long motorcycle rides and tries to pretend he is not in love with his best friend, who is getting married.
Yes, yes, yes.
*Colleagues by darjeelingsecondflush
Q and James watch with amusement the awkward mutual seduction of consulting Dr. Charles Xavier and agent 004 Erik Lehnsherr of MI6.
Holy shit, I love this crossover.
Diamagnetism by cherryfeather
Erik ran a hand through his hair bemusedly, walking back across the lawn. He’d find the look of mildly crazed confusion on Charles’s face hilarious if what he’d just done weren’t so much more important. “It was like I threw myself away from Alex—and then before I hit the ground, I caught myself. I was hovering.”
Charles groaned in disbelief, burying his face in his hands and resting his elbows on the window casement.
"Stop that."
Erik discovers a new power during a training accident. Charles is really only mildly hysterical, honestly.
Fluff thrown in for good measure.
Feline Persuasion by Unforgotten
When Charles looks down at his wristwatch and realizes he’s been going on about catnip brands for at least ten minutes, he realizes several other things too: he is officially a crazy cat person now. And he is never going to get laid again.
*If You Say the Word, I Could Stay with You by Black_Betty
Erik has a well thought out plan of attack when it comes to marriage proposals.
Of course, the best-laid plans…
One of the best proposal fics, seriously.
*never been so alone; never been so alive (la douleur exquise) by afrocurl
Erik’s wedding was meant to be an ending and then it wasn’t. Then it was a beginning of something else entirely.
Based off of Axis on a Tilt. Both are amazing and obviously a favourite as they both made this masterpost.
Order Up by ikeracity
Charles has a terrible habit of multitasking, and that is probably why he absentmindedly tells the pizza man that he loves him when hanging up.
Then the pizza man says it back. And Charles is pretty much smitten from there.
Popular for a reason. Pretty sure it was based off a popular text post.
**Raven’s Dad Has Got It Goin’ On by kayceeagitate
Erik’s only staring because he likes the car that belongs to the hot young dad of a classmate of his kids’, he swears. Wanda and Pietro don’t believe him for a second. Enter Raven and a plan.
Simple and Uncomplicated by Pookaseraph
Erik and Charles had been fuck buddies for some, but when Charles is in an accident he figured their relationship would be over. Erik’s visit to his bedside in the hospital changes his assumptions even as he has trouble believing Erik is sincere.
Your Father’s Daughter by ConsultingWriter
Wanda proves just how much she takes after Erik.
Pietro reeled back before leaning back in “They didn’t tell you what happened? Wanda got in a fist fight and totally wailed on this guy, I mean, on one hand I feel kinda embarrassed for him, but it was so epic.”
Erik’s eyebrows shot to his hairline. Wanda got in a fight? That was….surprising, to say the least. Wanda tended to take after Charles in temperament and preferred talking to violence.
Oh look, another adorable kidfic,
*Walking After Midnight (Searching For You) by TurtleTotem
Charles likes to talk walks around his apartment complex late at night when he gets caught up with homework and over stressed. Also, maybe, because he likes to lurk a little bit on the insomniac from A32 who sits on his patio/blacony at odd hours with headphones and a cigarette. One day he’ll muster up the courage to talk to him - preferably during daylight.
Gorgeous.
You Won’t Need a Hero by Pangea
Charles is just a regular, boring guy with regular, boring problems—like having a very unfortunate crush on his boss.
As it turns out, his boss isn’t quite who he appears to be.

comedy-official:

Everything’s in alphabetical order, completed, and has a happy ending because sad endings are a no no. I was joking about it being badass; everything is generally happy. I hate sad fics.

IF YOU ARE A NEW CHERIK SHIPPER RECOVERING FROM XMFC OR DOFP OR JUST ANYBODY THAT NEEDS HAPPY FICS THIS IS FOR YOU.

But please do note that even though I said they’re generally happy, some will make your heart clench a bit, but in a really good way and the ending’s always happy!

This is my Ao3 if anybody is interested and all these are bookmarked there along with a few other stories I have yet to read. Also PM me if there’s anything you want to point out about this list.

* - Really recommend
** - Highly, highly recommend/I’ve read this more than once
crossed out - Shit I have to say about these fics

Chapter Stories

*Charles Xavier’s A+ Guide to Management (or, How to Completely Destroy Your Life Without Even Trying) by fro_baby

In which Charles and Erik run a newspaper, wrangle interns, outrun the feds, outwit multinational crime lord, get royally fucked over (twice), eat prawns, argue over comma errors, dodge (and fail to dodge) airborne projectiles, make many snarky remarks, drive around in the desert, fight, make up, fight again, and slowly (but surely) fall in love.

This may not sound like your kind of story but no matter your type you must read this.

*come as you are by scarlettblush

Hospital AU. The one where Charles unknowingly woos a coma patient with Pride and Prejudice. Years later, they meet again.

The Courtship by dvs

A story about a courtship that began five hundred years ago.

A Curious Carriage of Crystal and Cold by etharei

Charles, a miner from a poor village in the countryside, saves the life of Erik Lehnsherr, scion of a successful business family and the richest man on the planet Eisen. Charles is a telepath and somewhat anxious about it, while Erik abstains from relationships because the lights flicker and doors open and electronics vibrate when he gets too excited.

Also featuring a long-suffering sister, a foul-mouthed bodyguard, and a best friend with a heart that is definitely not gold.

In which there are princes, spaceships, long journeys, and old secrets uncovered. (An AU sci-fi fairytale)

This was thrown in for good measure, I haven’t finished it.

**If You Liked The Book, You’ll Hate The Movie by paperclipbitch

Modern-Day High School AU. It’s not until Hank realises half the class are glancing towards the back of the classroom with something like nerves and something like schadenfreude that he finds out Alex Summers is back.

*in the moonlight, on a joy ride by scarlettblush

Librarian AU. Charles is the young librarian and Erik is the college student who is completely besotted with him.

This is really good, I actually liked Shaw.

In The Punch Line by zamwessell (greencarnation)

Basically, Charles Xavier needs a date to his tenth high school reunion. Enter Erik Lehnsherr, Raven’s best friend, who happens to be a model and the new face of Calvin Klein.

**Lean On Me by SpiritsFlame

Ten years ago, Charles and Erik split up, dividing their six kids between them. None of them expect them to meet at summer camp. And no one could have predicted the results.

I’ve read this over four times. So. Good.

Let’s Go To Prison by mykkila09

Charles wouldn’t last one day in prison with the mouth on him. He leaned against the wall of their tiny cell. “I’m going to die, aren’t I?” he muttered to himself.

"No Charles," Erik said, coming closer, "I won’t let that happen to you," he trapped the smaller man against the wall with his hand and smiled predatorily at him, leaning in even closer. "I’ll offer you my protection," he trailed a finger down Charles’ face, "but you’ll have to give me something in return."

"Okay," Charles said on a whisper, closing his eyes and feeling as the other man brushed his nose past his cheek, almost as if he were smelling Charles—taking in his scent perhaps. A low moan came from the taller man, a rumbling from his throat, and Charles gasped slightly.

He just made a deal with the devil, didn’t he?

Not as serious or scary as it sounds, or how the tags make it sound, honest. It’s mainly humour and it’s actually adorable. Pretty much a black comedy?

**Made To Be Broken by Yahtzee

Charles makes a New Year’s Resolution:

“No more straight men,” Charles repeated as he began scrolling through the apartment directory for Emma’s name. “No more futility. No more pointless hoping and heartbreak. In 2013, I never want to hear the words ‘exception,’ ‘experimenting’ or ‘phase.’ If, God forbid, I hear ‘bicurious’ even once, I may take a hostage.”

Then he goes into the party, and Erik is there.

I’ve read this over and over again.

My Barbaric Darling by baehj2915

Erik is revivified caveman. Charles is the anthropologist(?) taking care of him. This is as ridiculous as it sounds. Romcom misunderstandings and prehistoric wooing ensues.

Our House, In The Middle Of The Street by clocks

Charles is a social worker who fosters troubled kids, and one day he meets Erik, an ex-convict, who reluctantly agrees to stay for only a while, but ends up staying for good and helping Charles to raise the kids. Awkward parenting ensues.

There’s a reason why this is the second most popular Cherik fic on Ao3.

Paper Monsters by clocks

Charles meets Erik Lehnsherr, his favorite novelist of all time at a coffee shop, but doesn’t know it’s him, and Erik just criticizes his own writing in front of his biggest fan.

Same author as above. Just as awesome.

**Shop Space by caradee

Charles and Erik break up but still meet at their favorite coffee shop and manage a completely friendly relationship. The kids who work the coffee shop don’t understand it, Charles’ overprotective twin brother doesn’t understand it, and even Charles doesn’t understand it. Then, Erik shows up with a new date, someone who seems to be everything that Charles is not.

How will the Professor handle the surprising heartbreak that comes seeing Erik with someone else?

I’ve read this over and over again.

*Space Jam by pangea

Prince Charles Xavier is Deputy Commander of the TEF Heartsteel and the newest mission they’ve been assigned starts out less than desirable and quickly goes downhill from there. It’s alright, though, he’ll cope.

It doesn’t help, though, that he’s in unrequited love with his best friend and Commander of the Heartsteel, War-Prince Erik Lehnsherr.

Even if you don’t like sci-fi this is a really good story and was very fun to read.

Long one-shots

Despicably Yours by Cesare, veryorangecat

Erik Lehnsherr, AKA Magneto, is a supervillain without equal… except maybe one: Charles Xavier, AKA Professor X, AKA Erik’s next door neighbor. When their competition heats up, Erik decides the only way to get ahead is to adopt four mutant orphans to infiltrate Charles’s mansion.

Things don’t go as planned.

This is a fusion of X-Men: First Class with the adorable animated film Despicable Me, but should comfortably stand alone!

Does not have enough recognition. And the art just fits in so perfectly and it’s just as adorable as the fic itself!

**Doing Something for Yourself by Pookaseraph

Erik is a hard working engineer and single dad, Charles runs a local Community Center where Wanda and Pietro spend their time after school. Erik accidentally makes Charles’ acquaintance one Wednesday evening when he’s running late from work. Erik has no idea if he stands a chance with his new acquaintance, but that isn’t going to keep him from falling for the guy.

One of my favourite kidfics.

Drifting Apart Without You by Krasimer

Erik Lehnsherr has been apartment hunting, trying to find that one amazing place. He needs it to be furnished, well lit, with a good view as an added bonus.

He does find a place. Too bad that it’s already got a tenant.

A ghost by the name of Charles.

So good. Honestly, it deserved more hits and comments and kudos and whatnot.

**Finally Moving by zarah5

In which Erik is the son of servants, Charles is the son of aristocrats, and hedgehogs make repeated appearances. — Modern AU that is clearly inspired by Atonement (minus most of the angst, that is).

Barely any angst. I personally don’t think it’s anything like Atonement except maybe for the library sex??

**First Impressions by sirona

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a spouse — or the nearest set of curtains to hide behind, if you were to believe Mr Charles Xavier. Little does he know that he himself will soon put test to that very truth.

A must read for me, but I am slightly biased as I’m a huge Austen fan and P&P is probably my favourite Austen novel.

**Humane Society by smilebackwards

Once Erik finally allows himself to decide that Charles is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread, he spends the next week being incredibly bitter that he’s Charles’ cat and not his boyfriend.

I’ve read this so many times it’s just so adorable.

**Not So Much the Teacup by thehoyden

“Charles is basically the bride whisperer. It’s like he can read their minds.” (wedding planner AU)

Guys, just don’t think and read it. Do it!

**write this number down (you can call it anytime) by pocky_slash

When Erik upsets his children, they have a habit of running away from home—and straight to Charles’ school for cookies and consolation. Charles doesn’t mind the visitors, but as they appear more and more frequently, he realizes that sooner or later, he and Erik are going to have to talk about what happened on the beach and what it means for their future and the future of Erik’s children.

One of the best kidfics in my opinion.

you follow and i’ll lead by pearl_o, pocky_slash

When Charles discovers how frustrated and self-conscious his best friend Erik is about his ignorance about sex, he’s eager to volunteer to help teach him and practice. Charles might not have any more direct experience than Erik, but he does have a telepath’s mind full of accidentally picked-up fantasies and memories, as well as knowledge of a few dirty books - and more importantly, he’s been madly in love with Erik for years. This seems like a brilliant, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that he can’t pass up.

Now he just needs to manage to keep his feelings in check, and not ruin their friendship forever.

*Zweiundachtzig by Dow

Modern AU. Erik M. Lehnsherr is a private man, a jeweler that’s just looking for a studio to work in. But floorspace in New York is limited, so he ends up sharing a space with a beautiful mutant painter named Raven. Above them is a huge furry blue physicist, i.e. Mad scientist, and a glassblower that breaks half of what he makes when he starts laughing.

xmenfcfanfic:

Hi there Nonnie! I most certainly do! Please heed all the tags!

Charles’ Killer by  [NC17, Cherik]

When detective Charles Xavier finds himself hunting down a vendetta-driven serial killer, it doesn’t take long for him to realize he’s in over his head. It only takes a little longer for him to realize his killer is, too.

Rampage by  [NC17, Cherik]

When police uncover evidence that notorious serial killer Magneto is obsessed with Professor Charles Xavier, they immediately move to put him into Witness Security. Only Xavier refuses. The police come up with trumped up charges to arrest him and thus keep him safe until they can apprehend the killer. Erik is not happy that the police have chosen to drag Charles into this and are now trying to keep him from him, and shows his displeasure the best way he knows how — an increased body count.

Fidelity by  [NC17, Cherik]

The beginnings of a serial killer AU where Charles lures dirty old men in by looking like a homeless jailbait prostitute, and Erik gleefully helps him gut his johns to deal with his own traumas from living on the streets.

And also this series Serial Killer ‘Verse by 

Enjoy!

Old Ask (if you know it, please fanmail or submit it to us!):

Hey guys! There’s an amazing fic that I just can’t seem to find anywhere :( It’s a modern AU where Charles and Erik break up over something (I think it was a seminar that Erik wouldn’t go to?) He and Charles meet a few years later I think and they get back together and get engaged a bit later on. I also remember Raven not liking Erik. Hope you can find it, thanks guys!

Oh wow, so this was really hard. I apologise for the lack of links, I’m replying on my phone, but I’ll fix it later at home. So my top five, in no particulate order:

Us by pangeasplits
Good Boys by Zamwessell
Overdue by black—betty
Why do we always meet like this? by swoopswoopis
Humane Society by Smilebackwards

There are of course many more that I’d love to have recommended,but I went with those that I feel are brilliantly written and that I keep coming back to over and over.

With the exception of Us, which is brilliantly written and I never want to read again as long as I live.

Reblogging because I added links, and I love these fics so much it’d be awesome for people to go read them if they haven’t already

Thank you so much for the rec<3 I had actually forgotten all about that fic!! 

(I have to second all of these other recs, but especially Humane Society which I’ve read more than 100 times, and will continue to read every single time I’m feeling sad)

I feel exactly the same way about “Us.” XD YOU ARE A FANTASTIC WRITER, PAN, BUT I CAN’T AFFORD TO DO THAT TO MYSELF AGAIN.

theletteraesc:

He took her hand; - whether she had not herself made the first motion, she could not say - she might, perhaps, have rather offered it - but he took her hand, pressed it, and certainly was on the point of carrying it to his lips - when, from some fancy or other, he suddenly let it go. Why he should feel such a scruple, why he should change his mind when it was all but done, she could not perceive. He would have judged better, she thought, if he had not stopped. The intention, however, was indubitable; and whether it was that his manners had in general so little gallantry, or however else it happened, but she thought nothing became him more. It was with him, of so simple, yet so dignified a nature. She could not but recall the attempt with great satisfaction. It spoke such perfect amity. He left them immediately afterwards - gone in a moment.

codenamecesare, relevant to decent discussions? :D

This adaptation is on my queue on Amazon Prime— clearly I need to watch it soon. And that’s a perfect excerpt for Erik-as-Knightley feels.

I wish I had any facility for Regency, I’d love to try to write Charles as Emma. Though really it’s probably best that I don’t, since I’ve bombed out of every other damn thing I’ve tried to write for the past year and a half. I’ll just make big liquid McAvoy puppy eyes at everyone and hope someone else writes it.

/points to Clueless AU I recced earlier bc Clueless is just a modern AU of Emma

dragonfrooot said: i've been scrolling through your blog, and it's amazing; but i was just wondering, do you know of any non-au cherik epics? I'm talking on the level of "Us" by Pangea kind of epic: incredibly well-written, canon, believable characters, etc? Not necessarily super duper long, but a good story with a good plot? Sorry to be so picky; it's just most of the good cherik fics are fluffy/au/short, and i'd like something longer and deeper! Thanks!

What Not To Expect When You’re Not Expecting It by  [NC17, Cherik, Mpreg]

“I wasn’t hiding it from you. Honestly, I didn’t know for certain until yesterday, which I think we can agree was bad timing and not the sort of thing one springs before the heat of battle,” Charles says earnestly.

Sub Rosa by  [NC17, Cherik, Post XMFC]

Post-movie. In Charles Xavier’s garden almanac, there is a special entry each November for when Erik comes home. And some seeds need to go through fire before they can grow.

Time to Grow by  [PG13, Cherik, Canon]

Fifty years after they fell in love, Erik comes to Charles with a proposal that rocks Charles’s world.

A Logical Progression by  [PG13, Cherik, Mpreg, Post-Canon]

Erik and Charles were only together once before doubt and fear ground their romance to a halt. But once was apparently all it took. Now Charles is dealing with a pretty crappy secondary mutation, a brand new career teaching mini-mutants and a stubbornly overprotective Erik. This is the story of how Charles and Erik got from Point A to Point B and what they collected along the way.

Today’s old ask:

Hi, do you know of any fics where Charles tries to commit suicide (but doesn’t succeed) and Erik is there to help him? Can be set in any AU, as long as its Erik/Charles.

I finally thought of one that might help the old-ask seeker: Enervate (and sequels) by Tokidokifish. Charles doesn’t try to kill himself in a direct, physical way but Erik definitely has to help him hold onto his own mind and not drift away into the dark.

THIS IS AN UNDER-LOVED FIC THAT NEEDS YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION.
