momebie: (X-Men Charles/Erik leaving)
Title: Reciprocating Ciphers
Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Pairing: Erik/Charles
Rating: PG-13 (ish?)
Word Count: ~1,200
Summary: The rise and fall of stubborn feelings in words.
Author's Note: This is mostly because NyQuil hates me. If you haven't read The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan you should. Partially because it's beautiful and partially because it's his style I've aped for this. Thank you to [ profile] kyasuriin for helping with the title and to [ profile] pocky_slash for being herself. It should be obvious that this is Erik's point of view, but just in case....

That is still how I see you, even when we're at each other's throats. In turns in my memory you are serious and open and warm. You are the embodiment of some private joke whose punchline I've long forgotten. )

Title: Maybe I'll Catch Fire
Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,200
Summary: Erik would have drowned if the choice had been his.
Author's Note: For [ profile] brilligspoons, who wanted some introspection around that first attempt to kill Shaw (Schmidt). It's mostly like the novelization of That Water Scene from Erik's point of view. (In unrelated news: aaaaaaaah, jumping into a new fandom is always nerve wracking!)

The time Erik spent in the hands of Klaus Schmidt had been almost inconsequential. Not because it didn’t mold him or mark him or leave raised and ugly scars in every dream he’d ever have, but because it had been so short compared to the seventeen years—half of his life—he would spend hunting the man down so that he could claim his revenge. )
momebie: (Charles/Erik bed)
Stealing a page from [ profile] brilligspoons' book and just posting my Erik&Charles fanmix because I can! No graphics, because I only have Paint on the computer and I'm pretty bad at them. You just get links and songs, roughly in the order I imagine the corresponding scenes taking place. If that makes sense. The story here is one of killing Nazis and misplaced hope and two minds that are just left of each other and and an inability to bend without breaking. Some of the moments are quiet and delicate and some of the moments are loud and chaotic. It's angtsy and self-indulgent just like the fic it belongs to that I'll probably never write. (And also kind of violent, but this is me, so you should be used to that by now.)

Anyway, links and songs! I hope you like some of them. It's unlocked so send your friends over if you wish.

Never and Never and Never: An Erik&Charles Fan Mix

Nine Inch Nails - The Art of Self Destruction, Part 1
I am the voice inside your head
I am the lover in your bed
I am the sex you provide
I am the hate you try to hide
I control you

She Wants Revenge - Someone Must Get Hurt
As I stare through you and I stand quite still
And a alarm sounds just up the road
I can tell you'd like some company
but I can't fix you and you don't want me

Bloc Party - Plans
I'm walking out without you
You will kill or be killed
It's about progress
I've got a taste for blood

mewithoutYou - Nice and Blue
I've only ever loved myself
But I've loved myself so well.
And how defeated I return!
I missed what I was supposed to learn
as all I learned about was missing you.

Interpol - Pace is the Trick
And to all the destruction in man
and to all the corruption in my hand
and now I select you, slow now I let you
see how I stun, see how I stun

Our Lady Peace - Love and Trust
This is for everything we had
It's the good and it's the bad
It's the state of love and trust
And this is for you
And this is for us

Brand New - At the Bottom
We never are what we intend, or invent
'Cause I make little lies and then I pull them apart
Think something dark's living down in my heart

Empires - I Want Blood
Oh dear, the biggest of all fears,
You wish to hell I was not here
You wish to hell and I appear, oh dear
I want blood, I want blood from you
If it ain't your love, I want blood from you

Matt Pond PA - For Sale
Which side are you on
I won't be here that long
off the rail it's awfully stale
I never thought that I'd turn down the offer to fail

The (International) Noise Conspiracy - The Dream is Over
It's not the life we wanted to get
It comes a little too late baby we can't afford it
Maybe someday maybe someday we won't be living as slaves
Cause i can't believe that this is what we want to be

I want to make a second one now! One with a sixties sort of soundtrack to go less with the way I see the boys and more about the way I see the world of the movie. That one will take longer though, since I can't just make every track CCR and half of The Who's discography is too new if I make the music allowance timeline from 60-69. Anyway, let me know if you nab it. Let me know if you like it. Let me know if you just think I'm a crazy person. It's a fair assessment.
