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!


Aloha! :D Thanks for enjoying our work (and our tastes) Oh MAN, where do I even BEGIN. There are SO MANY good fics that deal with canon/duringcanon/postcanon! I can GO ON AND ON about all the super amazing cherik fics! ANYWAY!

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.

This Is the First Day of My Life by  [PG, Cherik, Post XMFC]

Life for Charles has become very confusing, but it continues nevertheless.

lay down beside me (so still and so soft) by  [NC17, Cherik, XMFC Retold]

A different take on the events of the film.

Time to Grow by  [PG13, Cherik, Canon]

In which you’ll find chess dates which aren’t dates (or maybe Charles is wrong about that). — Based on First Class, this turns (slightly) AU during the beach scene.

A Summer Day So Late In Coming by  [G, Cherik, Post-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.

[ Did I miss your favourite? Please submit or fanmail it to us!]

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.


marialexuchiha said: Hello there!! first of all let me thank you for answer my rec request about animal cherik Au I do really enjoyed reading them all.

Hello~! I’m glad you liked them! Hmm, I’ve read a lot of adaptations that I’ve liked so…this list is going to be long. >:D

Edge of Resonance - ikeracity, Pangea, Synekdokee {NC-17 |Pacific Rim |WIP |Mutant!AU}

After an incident that forces his former co-pilot Charles to the sidelines, Erik doesn’t believe he’ll ever find another Drift-compatible partner that will allow him to pilot again. This changes when Shatterdome Marshall Sebastian Shaw brings back Alex Summers, an ex-Ranger who quit the program after a disastrous mission that cost him his best friend, and with him, Erik finds his way back into a Jaeger.

And not a moment too soon - Charles, now a member of the PPDC Research Division, is on the verge of making a breakthrough that may end the Kaiju threat once and for all, and they’ll need every available Jaeger they have to finish the war that has been brought to their doorstep from the deep.

Synchronicity - manic_intent {R |Mutant!AU |Pacific Rim |}
Erik waits with careful patience outside Marshall Fury’s office, his shoulders pressed to the metal hull of Shatterdome Anchorage’s corridor. He breathes in, slowly, and then out, and all in all, he doesn’t exactly mean to eavesdrop, he tells himself, it’s just that he’s early, and Marshall Fury isn’t exactly making an effort to be quiet.

And the Gunslinger Followed - musical_emjay {NC-17 |Human!AU |Vampire!AU |Scifi |Hunter!Erik |Vampire!Charles |TV: Supernatural}
Erik Lehnsherr hunts the things that go bump in the night.

He’s done so since he was a child, since the first time his mother put a knife in his hand and told him how to use it, told him why he should.

But ten years alone on the road has caught up to him, left him wrung out and longing for a place to rest, recharge, get his head back on straight. Though nowhere has ever truly felt like home, he heads straight for New York City, a place that’s always had more to offer him by way of warmth and comfort than any other. What he finds when he gets there, however, is several miles south of anything approaching restful. Old acquaintances, old memories, and a mysterious stranger who has him forgetting all his rules — Erik soon realizes there are decisions he needs to make, before circumstances intervene and make them for him. Otherwise, he might not like the result.

Ghost in the Shell - MonstrousRegiment {NC-17 |Mutant!AU |Firefly+Dollhouse}
Out in the black of space, where the only creatures whose company you can always count on are violence and death, making a living is a wager. Erik’s crew of mismatched social misfits scrapes by, toeing the line between law and crime. Normally, they prefer to stay out of the Alliance’s way, but when it comes to defending the very freedom they fought for a decade ago, they only follow one principle: when someone tries to kill you, you kill them right back.

Limited Release - rageprufrock {R |Mutant!AU |White Collar |Detective!Erik |Canon Disabled Character}
When Alex Summers broke out of supermax to rescue his stupid kid brother, he had no idea it was going to be so fucking complicated.

The necessary Atonement fusion, with its consequent tons of angst and hurt.

First Impressions - sirona  {PG-13 |Pride and Prejudice}
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.

Into the Jungle - madneto  {NC-17 |Tarzan |Historical}
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.

Hold Your Own, Stack Your Stones - primetime {R |Mutant!AU |Mulan |Alpha/Omega Dynamics |Historical!AU}
Erik cleared his throat, still refusing to look down. He started over. “Charles Francis Xavier, you have been charged by Her Majesty’s will and under her seal with the crimes of identity theft, falsification of orientation, and illegal and fraudulent entry into Her Majesty’s service.” Mulan AU.

Tale As Old As Time - madneto {NC-17 |Beauty and the Beast |Fantasy |Mutant!AU}

Nine Eleven Ten - Subtilior  {NC-17 |Beauty and the Beast |Read the warnings |Epic}
Years later, Charles would remember that day. Sometimes he would wonder if he could have changed anything; other times he would despair over what he had since become.

Drink the Wild Air - isabeau {PG-13 |Canon!AU |Merman!Charles |Fantasy |Based on: Little Mermaid}
Charles is the last of the mer-kin, but his life changes forever when he discovers that the powers of the People of the Sea are turning up in humans. An impulsive decision to save the life of one such human has far more effect on both of them than they could have expected…

Once a star, Charles is forced into a human form following a crime of treason, cursed and exiled into a mortal life. Rescued by a crew of mutants led by Commander Erik Lehnsherr, he soon realizes that the voyage they are on is doomed.

…But how can he save the man he loves when, if he speaks, anyone who hears his voice will die?

To Rattle the Stars - GQD, Pangea {WIP |Treasure Planet |NC-17}
All his life Charles has chafed at the bonds of gravity that hold him bound to tiny and backwater Montressor, more at home in the sky on his solar surfer than on the ground, where he’s stuck working at his stepfather’s inn. His heart and soul yearn for the stars, and it’s his dream to one day be a spacer and sail across the cosmos on adventure.

The opportunity comes sooner than he ever imagined one night when a ship crash-lands on the inn’s front doorstep, carrying a dying pirate with a mysterious map and a dire warning: beware the cyborg.
Downtown (everything’s waiting for you) - so_shhy {NC-17 |Pretty Woman |Adorable!Charles |Hurt!Charles |Protective!Erik |Prostitute!AU}

Erik Lehnsherr’s name has been drawn to compete as an alpha tribute and he is set solely on survival, but he hadn’t exactly counted on Charles, the mysterious omega tribute that isn’t playing by any of the rules. Hunger Games AU.

Hell Hath No Limits, or: Erik Lehnsherr Does One Impossible Thing Before Breakfast - M_Leigh {PG-13 |Good Omens}
X-Men AU, Good Omens-style, with Charles as Aziraphale, Erik as Crowley, Jean as the Antichrist, and Raven as a badass motherfucker. You shouldn’t need to have read Good Omens to enjoy this, although if you haven’t, you should probably prioritize that over this. I mean, seriously.

I Have a Holy Duty to Unzip Your Genes - jukeboxhound {R |Good Omens}
“Genetics, my fine man,” Charles declares, unperturbed when Erik has to poke him back upright on his stool, “is God’s finest miracle.” (Fusion with ‘Good Omens.’)

As Dark Longs For Day - Yahtzee {R |AU |Fantasy |Ladyhawke}
A daring young thief escapes from the wicked bishop’s dungeons, thinking herself free — until she encounters a rider with a black horse, a tame hawk and a dark secret. And who is this mysterious young man who only appears at night, accompanied by a protective wolf?

As We Saunter Vaguely Down by alishatorn {PG-13 |Crossover: Hex |WIP}
Pairing: Azazeal (Hex)/Charles
Prompt: BECAUSE IT’S THE SAME BLOODY HOUSE THAT AZAZEAL’S BEEN STALKING FOR YEARS. I just want Charles being seduced by this smooth, soft spoken, quietly evil, incredibly sexy nephilim.

Boden’s Mate by kaydeefalls {PG-13 |Inception}
Summary: XMFC/Inception fusion AU. Erik is an extractor, Alex is his point man. They’re assembling a team to go after the most dangerous mind in dreamsharing: Sebastian Shaw.

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.
Bea’s comment: Parent Trap!AU, with bonus Hank/Alex. The kids are great.

Natural Selection - manic_intent  {NC-17 |TV: Sentinel}
Professor Charles Xavier is thirty-two years old when he meets his Sentinel, and as a credit to his half of the subspecies, he still manages to finish the seminar, run through a credible Q&A session, thank the Dean for the invitation to lecture as a guest at the Yale School of Medicine, before finally fleeing the theatre to find the nearest bathroom.

While he’s busy throwing up into a toilet, he dimly hears the door to the bathrooms opening, then getting locked, and then someone is awkwardly patting him on the back, and Charles knows rather than sees that the Sentinel is conscientiously offering him tissues to wipe his mouth.

Maybe not a bastard, then.

Salem Center Mass - listerinezero {PG-13 |Grosse Point Blank}
Erik Lehnsherr is a professional hitman and has no intention of attending his ten year high school reunion. But since he happens to have a kill lined up in the same town at the same time, he decides he may as well stop by. After all, his high school sweetheart, Charles Xavier, might be there. And it’s not like he’s spent the past ten years pining over Charles. Not at all.

Secret Agent Man - ximeria {PG-13 |Mutant!AU |Agent!Charles |Q!Erik |Skyfall}
Erik Lehnsherr is a much feared Quartermaster at MI6. Apparently someone forgot to tell their newest agent this.

Stream of Stars - ninemoons42 {PG-13 |Crossover: Battlestar Galactica |President!Erik}
galactica!au where Erik is Roslin and Charles is Adama

The Better Men - TurtleTotem {NC-17 |Crossover: Harry Potter |Amazing |Teacher!AU |Pining}
"I do believe the two of you were in the same year as boys, were you not?" Headmaster Shaw said. "Charles is the most competent deputy any headmaster could ask for, Erik, and he’s been doing this for years…" He trailed off, as if finally noticing something odd in the way his Potions and Divination masters were staring at each other. "Of course," Charles said quickly, his voice only a little hoarse, and stuck out his hand. "Welcome back to Hogwarts, Erik."

the discreet pleasures of rejection by pidgeoned {PG-13 |Love Actually |Writer!Charles}
Summary: Charles attempts to finish his third book while living in seclusion. Erik is his reluctant companion.

Their Mouths Always Lie - keire_ke {R |Detective!AU |Human!AU | Action |Based on: Lethal Weapon + Mentalist}
Charles adheres to most police protocols like they are a personal code of conduct. Erik gets things done and over with, for better or worse. Raven knows what she’s doing, most of the time. The serial killer kills, regardless. Police AU.

'tis a far far better thing doing stuff for other people - whichisgolden {NC-17 |Mutant!AU |Clueless |Pining |Awesome |High School!AU |Pining}
The X-Men: First Class Clueless AU that you didn’t know you always wanted. Charles is a spoiled Beverly Hills telepath, Erik is his pretentious ex-step-brother, Emma is his best friend because they both know what it feels like for people to be jealous of them, etc

Despicably Yours - Cesare, veryorangecat {PG |Romantic Comedy |Fluff |Despicable Me |OOC |Superheroes/Supervillains}
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.

Epoch! - Pangea{NC-17 |Crack/Humor |Jurassic Park |Mutant!AU}
When Erik Lehnsherr decides to answer the sketchy job ad on the very last page of the Classifieds, meeting an insane billionaire who has no concept of reality and troubling memory loss is not at all what he expects. He also doesn’t expect to meet Charles Xavier, who might actually be the love of his life if he could ever get around to admitting it to himself.

He also doesn’t expect dinosaurs, but then again, who really does these days?

I, We, Us - winterhill {R |Canon!AU |Daemon!AU |His Dark Materials |Beginning to end |Happy ending}
Daemon AU: When he was a child, Erik was forced to split from his daemon. It’s only when he meets Charles that he thinks he might have finally found someone who he could safely leave her with. Missing scenes from canon and a few re-written scenes, plus what happened after. Somewhat loose interpretation of Pullman’s ideas.

It Takes A Village - kellifer_fic {R |Mutant!AU |The Village}
The inhabitants of a small, isolated countryside village live in fear that those outside will find them, that monsters called The Sentinels will sense their Afflictions and come looking for them. A village full of children live a suspended existence, their only protection three mysterious Elders that rule over them in all things.

The Bell’s Toll - MonstrousRegiment {NC-17 |Nikita |Dark!Charles |Hurt!Charles |Hurt!Erik |BAMF!Charles |Mutant!AU |Spy!AU}
A sort of fusion between Nikita, with a healthy (or not) dose of my own imagination. Charles Xavier goes to prison, and is recruited by a spy/assassin division of the government. Dismal a beginning as this might look, it unbelievably goes downhill. Erik, the necessary stoic ex-military man, gets sidled with him. Not a single person is amused.

The changeling; or, Charles Xavier (a Novel by a Lady) - aesc {PG-13 |Historical!AU |Fantasy |Jane Eyre}
[1834] The changeling Charles Xavier, friendless and dispossessed of his fortune, arrives at Ironhill Hall to tutor the two children of the mysterious Mr. Lehnsherr. Or, the one where XMFC meets a heavily-revised Jane Eyre meets steampunk.

The Greendale Dazzlers - winterhill {PG-13 |Mutant!AU |UST |Humor |College!AU |Community}
If Erik really does kill the Dean on the Library steps, they’re probably going to have to disband the study group. Fusion with Community, for the prompt “Community AU, where they’re all members of a mutant study group and hilarity ensues.”

The Jade Coin - ximeria {NC-17 |Mutant!AU |UST |Pining |Action/Adventure |Indiana Jones/Romancing the Stone}

The Legend of Raven: Prince of Dreams - Ktown, Pangea  {NC-17 |Fantasy |AU |Legend of Zelda}

He can’t seem to shake the restless feeling that there’s something very familiar about the dreams and that he’s standing on the edge of something very big about to happen.

And then one day Ordon Village is attacked by monsters straight out of nightmares and Erik’s world is turned upside down when a dark, evil power puts all of Hyrule under a sleeping spell. What starts out as a mission to save his village turns into a quest to save the entire realm, because he just may be the only one who can.

the masked man (who has everything) by traincat {R |Batman |Mutant!AU |Rescue}
Summary: The one where Erik is Batman, and Charles is kidnapped roughly once a week.

This Will Be - SpiritsFlame {PG-13 |Mutant!AU |While You Were Sleeping |Pining |Misunderstandings}
Pairing: Hank/Alex
Hank McCoy is in love with the perfect woman. One day, he’s certain, they will fall in love and be married. It would be a grand plan if they’d ever met. When she falls into a coma, Hank tries to look after her and is thrown into the topsy-turvey world of her family. And he can’t help but be drawn to her rude and infuriating foster brother Alex.
Bea’s comment: This one is adorable, I wanted to give Hank lots of hugs. The ending put a big smile on my face. <3

X Marks the Spot by thehoyden {NC-17 |Mutant!AU |Indiana Jones}
Summary: The year is 1962, and Charles Xavier is a professor of archaeology who knows how his students feel, whether he wants to or not. He spends his spare time researching a mythical artifact, but he knows better than anyone that X never, ever marks the spot.

At the End of Day and Night All We Want is More - cm (mumblemutter)  {NC-17 |Alien Resurrection}
It’s already too late.

White Nights - spicedpiano, tahariel {NC-17 |Alpha/Omega |Historical!AU |Fantasy!AU |Mpreg |Still Have Powers |Royalty |Game of Thrones}

An arranged marriage brings them together, but Erik’s lust for war and Charles’ hidden agenda threaten to tear them apart. In the frozen Northlands of Ironhold life is hard and cold, and both Charles and Erik must give up their pretense and see each other as they really are: perfect for each other, if only they’ll acknowledge it.

Anonymous said: I'm looking for cherik fics where Charles is in a wheelchair.



Of course! :’)

Appropriate Boundaries by  [NC17, Cherik, HankRaven, Modern, Unpowered]

Charles has been having serious problems with back cramps in the year and a half since he’s been in a wheelchair. His doctor prescribes massage therapy. But when Charles meets his masseur, Erik, in some ways they begin to heal each other. So how do you cross the boundaries between professional touch — and the personal? [Mod note: Still as good as the first time I read it!]

Old Retired Dudes series by  [PG13, Cherik]

Erik’s spent fifty years being a figurehead and he’s ready to leave that behind. Luckily, so is Charles. [Mod Note: Sj;laksjdfs, I adore the Old Retired Dudes in Love. Go read it if you haven’t!]

Magneto vs. The Magical X-Men by  [PG, Cherik, Modern, Powered]

Technically, Magical X-Men was something Magneto knew he should hate with every fiber of his being not devoted to hating ignorant humans. It was animated for one. For two, it featured an unbelievably optimistic protagonist whose adventures were, in addition to being flagrantly unrealistic, a method of inculcating wrong-headed lessons about how everyone could love each other and protect the earth and make the world a better place. Finally, it exercised an unreasonable attraction that turned every fan of the Magical X-Men into simpering, squealing teenagers. Only Magneto seemed immune. [Mod Note: AHSF:LKAJSD, this is ridiculous but so very charming :D]

Silver Dollars by  [PG, Cherik, Fluff]

Erik has no intention of letting Charles man the kissing booth for the Xavier Institute fundraising carnival. [Mod Note: Erik is ridiculous, but this is one of my favourites :DDD]

the things we did and didn’t do by  [PG, Cherik, H/C, Unpowered, Modern]

The doctors say the best thing for Charles as he learns to cope with his paralysis is positivity from those around him. Erik is so tired of being positive that it’s making him sick. [Mod Note: Eeeeeee. c:]

I second all of these! :D :D :D

Of course! That’s one of my favorite tropes. :D

My favorite is Tough little baby telepath series by aesc, pearl_o , where Erik is a detective (who acts like an asshole, most of the time) and Charles is a young telepath consultant who has issues. It’s pretty great and epic. The sex is also unf hot, and unlike most Erik/Charles fics that I’ve read, Erik is the one who goes after Charles and Charles is the hesitant one (with lots of issues). <3

Also Their Mouths Always Lie by keire_ke , AKA The Lethal Weapon AU! Erik is the new detective (with a secret), and Charles is like the Mentalist. It’s awesomeeee.

Others that I like are:

Limited Release by rageprufrock {R |Mutant!AU |Based on: White Collar |Detective!Erik |Canon Disabled Character |Protective!Erik}
When Alex Summers broke out of supermax to rescue his stupid kid brother, he had no idea it was going to be so fucking complicated. Erik and Charles’ relationship is adorable.

Linger by waldorph {NC-17 |Modern!AU |Mutant!AU |Hurt!Charles |Agent!Erik |Kidnapped!Charles |telepathy}
Erik had been warned, to be fair. The realtor was very explicit that the last seventeen tenants had run from the premises screaming about the Exorcist or The Ring or some other terrible horror show.

Guilty by Association - Regann {R |Human!AU |Suspense |Detective!Erik |Journalist!Charles}
cop!Erik, fake-hooker-slash-reporter!Charles,

Homo Sacer - unveiled {NC-17 |Mutant!AU |Detective!AU}
In a not too distant future, Detective Erik Lehnsherr meets Charles Xavier: street magician, former academician, and telepath.

I’ll see your heart (and I’ll raise you mine) - sirona {NC-17 |Mutant!AU |Action/Adventure |Detective!Erik}
For Kriminalhauptkommissar Erik Lehnsherr, this case will change everything.

Paralyzer - Yahtzee {NC-17 |Mutant!AU |Hurt!Charles |Non-con |Detective!Erik}
In 1965, Erik Lehnsherr has infiltrated the NYPD for his own purposes — but his powers make him a brilliant detective. Yet that’s not why FBI agent Charles Xavier has sought him out. It’s because the mysterious killer they’re both trying to find is murdering people like them: other mutants. Their search for a madman binds them together. Their inner demons may tear them apart. But the greatest danger comes when the killer they’re looking for looks back …

Charles’ Killer - luchia {NC-17 |AU |Detective!Charles |Vigilante!Erik}
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.

couldn’t see this post without also adding: 


Incy Wincy Spider - tawa_bids {M | Still Powered AU/Serial Killer AU | Detective!Erik | Kidnapped!Charles} Erik Lehnsherr is a renowned homicide detective investigating a twisted serial killer who’s targeting mutants; and then the killer pulls Erik’s husband Charles into his web…

Every fic on this list are my favorite!!!!! I just re-read Charles’ Killer yesterday at lunch, love the non-linear story telling so much <3
