I collect these for [personal profile] muccamukk, then I think why not post it here too?

Any Measure of Peace
: The summary is misleading. The story is a bit dark, but it's a very solid and meaty AU.
How Deep the Bullet Lies: "This is drowning, their first meeting all over again, the natural conclusion of the moment Charles felt Erik in the water, fevered with anguish and history." Charles, from the beginning to the end.
Fear the Rest: Charles Xavier's never been sure how it became a war. This is how. The story of the founding of the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants. It's written before XM:FC comes out, so jossed. But it's still good.
Freefall AU. If Scott had been a little quicker on the uptake, X2 might have gone more like this. After an impromptu prison break, the X-Men, Magneto, and Mystique try to work together without anyone falling apart. Gen, with references to various pairings.
All the Fear You left Behind: "Erik has had one goal. He’s spent his life in relentless pursuit of it and has given almost no thought to what would come after he achieves it."

not very plotty h/c
Ending AU (dream ending) So Charles still gets shot and is crying in Erik’s arms- but instead of leaving, Erik realizes that being vengeful will only ever hurt the man he loves. So he stays with Charles and confesses his ~feelings~ and kisses him and takes care of him as he gets better and they’re beautiful and in love. Please. I need this. Not very plotty, I'm afraid, but very nice h/c
Open (absolutely heartbreaking) More than anything, Erik wants to protect Charles from the world, from the humans he knows will eventually betray them. There’s an innocence and naivety to Charles, and Erik wants to preserve that for as long as he can.
Need & Nova Charles attempts to help Erik focus, but dredging up old traumatic memories leaves Erik an emotional wreck. Charles comforts him.
Scars What’s under Erik’s turtleneck, hmm? Maybe he only ever wants to canoodle with his shirt on or in the dark. Charles finally coaxes him into showing him, and h/c ensues. Doesn’t have to be terribly graphic or have sex either, I just like the angst and the h/c aspect.
Call Me By His Name Charles wakes from the absence of noise. There is an empty space in his room, beside his bed. Not quiet as in an abandoned room, but utterly, featurelessly blank. Like a box made of unblemished, impenetrable metal and Charles knows before he opens his eyes.

X-Men First Class Fic rec

Title: Playing The Hopeful Move
Author: [personal profile] icarus
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None
Summary: Charles and Erik go on a road trip to find mutants and end up playing chess at 20,000 feet. "I'm not omnipotent enough to lie."
Reason to rec: Set during the movie, it captures the characters perfectly.

Title: You Told Me Again You Preferred Handsome Men, But For Me You Would Make an Exception
Author: [ profile] feverbeats
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None
Summary: He's been asked to trust a lot of men in his life, and he isn't about to let his response change just because he's developed feelings for one of them.
Reason to rec: It's so them, saying all the wrong things at the wrong time and telepaphy only makes things worse.

And there's two lovely ensemble pieces. I like how Charles interact with others of the team.

A rec.

Iron Man

Horns of a Deer, Feet of a Tiger by [ profile] softintelligence Rec
6900 words. G. An origin story where Tony Stark is a Vietnamese-American person. "It's because baguettes and fried eggs remind him of being poor," his mom said, "and Ba only wants to be rich."

Words can't explain how I love the story. Just read it.
