Summary: Charles has always been an intelligent boy, but sometimes he lets the world around him dictate who he should be.

Summary: Erik has been on his own since his parents died while being experimented on—they were a bonded Sentinel-Guide pair. It's been Erik's life mission to find and destroy facilities that experiment on Sentinels and Guides. Meanwhile, he's hoping he won't ever come online as a Sentinel himself.
Charles, a professor whose studies include the Sentinel-Guide gene, has been waiting a long time for his Sentinel to come online. But when he finally does, it seems he isn't interested in bonding....

Of Princes and Dragons (Charles/Erik, Emma/Scott, Alex/Armando, Teen and up)

Title: Of Princes and Dragons
Author: letosatie
Artist: dosymedia
Verse: First Class, Days of Future Past, comics
Word Count: 24937
Rating: Teen and up
Characters/Pairings: Charles/Erik, Alex/Armando, Emma/ Scott, Sebastian Shaw, Janos Quested, Evangeline Whedon, Jean Grey, Ororo Munroe, the Frost siblings
Warnings: for sappiness
On a peninsula called Genosha, there were four countries existing co-operatively.

The youngest of the four rulers, King Erik, suffered the shame of not manifesting his expected hereditary power of magnetism and metallokinesis, a disadvantage in a country of skilled and vicious warriorship. The curse that bound his powers could be broken with love, but Erik could not remember a time when he didn’t love the Crown Prince of Corazon, Charles Xavier. He and Charles were both sole heirs; their duty to reproduce should outweigh personal desire, both for each other and for relief from the curses that pained them.

Charles was telepathic. His country however, shunned magic, put all their faith in religion and science. So he hid his gifts and he resigned himself to the loneliness of secrets kept and a loveless marriage.

The King and the Prince had choices to make and, with each of their options bound to hurt someone, it seemed their own wishes must give way to the greater good.

Summary: Things have gone well for Charles in the nineteen months that have passed since Washington. The school is prospering, his family is united again, and mutants are widely accepted as equal members of society. Everything changes on a summer night in early August: without warning, his life begins to fall apart, and Charles struggles to prevent a disaster. It takes him some time to realize what - or who - he is truly fighting.

summer boy (charles/erik, nc-17)

Title: Summer Boy
Author: mssdare
Artist: radkoko
Verse: First Class
Word Count: 15834
Rating: NC-17 (Explicit)
Characters/Pairings: Charles/Erik
Warnings reference to past childhood abuse (not explicit), ableism, suicidal thoughts, mild drug use, focus on disability (canon disabled character)

Erik is working as a busboy in a beach bar. He hates the tourists, he hates the bar, and most of all he hates himself and the past from which he’s trying to escape. The only person there who seems more miserable than Erik is a boy in a wheelchair, sitting there all day reading books and sweating in the unforgiving summer heat.

Thank you Sillygoose for betaing, Red for prereading and helping me out with medical details, my Twitter girls for cheerleading and most of all radkoko for drawing the cutest Erik and Charles! <3
Many thanks to Afrocurl for running this fest!

Summary: As an art major, being low on money is not a novelty. Erik sacrifices everything from sleep to food to get by, and he's gotten very good at keeping himself going on the barest minimum. Something which Charles doesn't seem to get, at all.

(noun) thing created (Raven/Azazel, PG-13)

Late in the day, but still on time. This is my offering for this year's challenge.

Title: (noun) thing created
Author: nellywrites
Artist: karon_chan (arisupaints)
Word Count:9000
Rating: Teen
Characters/Pairings: Raven Darkholme/Azazel, (brief) Raven Darkholme/Erik Lehnsherr
Warnings canon character deaths, canon typical violence and bigotry mentions
Summary: Mystique had slowly grown like a callus over the places Raven inhabited until she was all roughness and death. It was impossible to reduce that to one moment, when it had been the amalgamation of all of them. But if she were forced to point out the day Raven died, she'd say it was the cool Bavarian morning when Raven had swaddled her newborn son in his dead father’s coat and left him behind in the depths of the Black Forest. An introspective character piece that explores the emotional journey of Raven's transformation into Mystique, in the years between First Class and Days of Future Past. Gap filler fic, mostly canon compliant.

The posting schedule for Round 4 can be found here.

Posting Instructions

Leading up to their assigned posting day Authors and Artists need to communicate to get ready. We would like both Authors and Artist to make a Master Post at their journals (one for fic and one for art) and provide each other with the links.

For Authors we want a place on your journal people can go to be navigated to the fic (whether you decide to host in on your journal, on archive, or somewhere else).

For Artists we want you to have a post that you can get your own feedback at. This doesn't mean the art can't be embeded through out the story, there just needs to be a place specifically for feedback on the art.

Collapse )

If you aren't sure how to do this (the coding, etc) or have any other questions please contact us ( or leave a comment to this post.
