Genre: Fluff, Angst
Summary: Except that this has happened before, he thinks with a start, and something in his throat closes up as he revolves on the spot, already knowing what he’s going to see. Charles’ back is arching as he falls, his eyes wide, and the crumpled bullet falls to the sand beside him like a calling card. X-Men: First Class Groundhog Day!AU
Mod Comment: I’m going through my bookmarks and this one is wonderful. The pacing, the timing, the characterisation and the beautiful writing. Let me just lie here and revel in my feelings.
marialexuchiha: hello my friends I wondering if you know any cherik world cup stories?or sports Au ?
I am going to direct you over to our dear friend ikeracity who is the queen of football aus and is in the midst of writing a WORLD CUP AU where Erik plays for Germany and Charles is his doting partner, who plays for England and is therefore already out and cheering Erik on from the sidelines :DDDDD
All her work is catalogued under this tag on her blog. Enjoy!!!!!!!! She writes BEAUTIFULLY!!! And there’s some killer football-au related art from others under that tag as well!!
[EDIT] K sneaks in to add:
From The Start by treasuredleisure
They were once childhood friends who bonded over their love of the same sport.
Years later they reunite, but as competitors.
And Erik’s still harbouring feelings for his old friend that he’s certain he can no longer hide.
Erik and Charles watch the Euro 2012 final together.
Charles is not what you would call a “sports person” - but the promise of free kisses after the game, especially with one Erik Lensherr playing midfield, is a temptation Charles can’t resist.
Erik’s always dreamed of playing football for Bayern, but it’s Arsenal who comes calling. A soccer AU.
Anonymous: hiii! i was wondering if you could help me find the cherik fic where erik is a pianist? i cant remember much else except for i think it took place in italy. thanks!
I think you’re looking for the following:
For Charles by Shigai
Tired of being told he has to find his ‘heart’, classical piano graduate Erik Lehnsherr decides to travel to Italy and drink from the famous Italian passion for music. While searching for it, he meets Charles Xavier, a graduate in Fine Arts who is basically travelling around the world perfectioning his technique, and who will turn his world upside down.
Together they will discover that, sometimes, what you thought you didn’t need is what you needed the most.
Anonymous: This blog is amazing! I was wondering if you knew if Reverse Bang is still going? I don't see any new round starting and it's already July.
rozf, any ideas when the next round will be?
A post is about to go up in the community checking for interest and a start date. I’d like to start sign-ups 1 August if there’s enough interest.
sunny-side-scorpio: So there was this great cherik fic I read a while back and I thought is bookmarked it but I didn't. It's was 7 chapters (ish) and Erik was a famous write and Charles was a professor who was a fan and they meet in a coffee shop run by Darwin. I only remember little pieces. Sorry. But is love it if you could locate it! (I saw the anon ask so I know it won't be instant, but I'd really love the help)
I THINK you’re referring to Paper Monsters by Clocks:
Fill for this prompt: 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.
Let us know if that’s not the right one! (it’s adorable though, and everyone should read it!!)
Anonymous: Hi sorry. Not to be that person but when will you be posting more rec lists?
Hi there! Excellent question. Most likely when I have the time to dedicate exclusively to answer asks, which will hopefully be soon.
Anonymous: Hi, are there any Cherik AUs that have dinosaurs? I swear I read one once but I've lost the link. Thank you so much for this blog!
The first thing I always think about when someone mentions a cherik au with dinosaurs is the following:
Epoch! by Pangea
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?
MOD NOTE: HILARIOUS. SEXY. ALSO FEATURES AMAZING ART BY keire-ke
If this wasn’t the dinosaur cherik AU you were looking for, let us know!! Especially since I would love to read more fic featuring DINOSAURS.
peetasketchbook: Hey 😊 I'm kinda new to the fandom (please don't hate me) but I've done my research but I still lead myself back to the weird and creepy ship of raven and Charles. I know they're like siblings and blah blah blah but are there actually any decent fanfics out there about them? Also I wondered if they have a ship name? 😂
First of all, no one over here would ever hate you for requesting a ship or kink that you like! We have a strict no-shaming policy on this blog, so don’t ever be afraid to ask us for things that you like/are interested in, etc!
Here is the Charles/Raven tag on Ao3 which has a lot of solid fics about that pairing (though there is a fair bit of Erik Lehnsherr thrown into the mix as well, just as a heads up).
One fic I’ve always thought was REEEEALLY SEXY featuring Raven/Charles is Like Songs I Never Learned by pearl_o:
It starts as a game, like so many things between them.
MOD NOTE: SUPER SEXY. SUPER NSFW.
Also—does anyone know if they have a ship name? I’m not sure I’ve ever seen one around….?
