Rectober #4: We Only Come Out At Night

cherry blossom
And to wrap up Rectober, two perfect fics for Halloween night. I'm afraid to say too much about either of them; there are twists and turns in each that I don't want to spoil. Just read them. Check the warnings, and read them.   

The Haunting on Graymalkin Lane, by keire-ke. (XMFC, Charles/Erik, PG). No man peeks through the veil that separates the dead from the living, from either end, if there is another end. If, however, people are superstitious enough to hire Erik Lehnsherr to repair noisy staircases and draughty windows while paying him to rid their house of ghosts, he would be mad to disabuse them of their beliefs. No matter how many times Mr Marko crosses himself when he utters the address Salem Centre, 1407 Graymalkin Lane, Erik refuses to believe there are ghosts residing there.

Mrs Bletchly & the Sloe Gin Massacre, by junkshop_disco. (Merlin RPF, Eoin/Rupert, side Bradley/Colin, R.) Bradley suggests a boys’ weekend, and much to Colin’s dismay the hotel is not amongst Trip Advisor’s top-rated. When a painting takes a fancy to them Rupert turns to gin, while Eoin has to rely on his horror movie experience to get through it. Will any of them make it out alive?

Happy Halloween and happy reading!

Rectober #3: OMG TOO CUTE

cherry blossom
and now, for a selection of the absolutely adorable!

serious koala business, by chiasmus and stlkrchck. (XMFC,Charles/Erik, G.) Erik has no particular fondness for animals, so he isn’t entirely sure what to think when Charles is turned into a stuffed bear.

I’m alive, not stuffed, Charles points out, and a koala, for your information, which isn’t technically a bear.

Sleepy hungry turned-into-a-koala!Charles is too adorable for words, and Erik is so perfectly Erik as he looks after him. The mental image of koala!Charles being carried in Erik's arms is one of my happy places :-)

The Hug-a-Drop-Bear Program, by kageillusionz and our-girl-friday. (XMFC, Charles/Erik, G. Zookeeper Raven at Taronga Zoo keeps having ideas on how to capitalize on interest in the zoo mascots, Koala Charles and Drop Bear Erik (the only drop bear in captivity!), who have captured the hearts and minds of the public. First it was to introduce prospective mates (It’ll generate attention, Hank. People are perverts. They’d love to see koala porn.). This idea was not effective the first through fifth attempts, as Erik and Charles seemed to show at best polite interest in the newcomer before resuming whatever marsupial debate they had going. However, the resulting lesbian koala orgies did indeed generate interest. Then Raven unveiled the Hug-A-Koala program, which was successful, as the public showed great interest in hugging Charles, and Charles seemed to enjoy being hugged.

Then Raven unveiled the Hug-A-Drop Bear program, and Hank, not for the first time, wished he had a flask handy.

[Koala!Charles, Drop Bear!Erik AU]

More koala!Charles adorableness! (You might be thinking I have a thing for koalas. You would not be wrong :D) Erik's angry, besotted, soulful, poetic drop bear!pov is a DELIGHT. And there's a prequel!

One Sheet to the Wind, by capricciopia. (Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, M.) Merlin is just a plain white sheet, happily drying on the clothesline, until a gust of wind tangles him with the arrogant blanket next door.

Merlin and Arthur are meant to be, in any universe, in any form! I love the sensory detail here; every line is warm, cozy, perfect. And blanket!Arthur could not be more Arthurish if he tried   

On the Banks of the Sararahelkos, by nonelvis. (Doctor Who, Eleven/River, G. “I lived among otters once for a month. Well, I sulked. River and I, we had this big fight ...”

Giant otters curled around the TARDIS.   Giant otters' pov on Eleven and River.  A perfect reason behind the month-long argument. This fic has it all!

Rectober #2: Let's Talk About Sex

cherry blossom
aaaand time for some smut.

Wear Sunlight, by Etirabys. (XMFC, Charles/Erik,NC-17). [NOTE: Ao3-locked.] D/s. Top!sub!Erik. Charles is a mutant activist in a world where defining mutation is no longer simple. Erik is a struggling writer who gave up on the movement years ago. Charles lets Erik live in his summer villa in the south of France for free, under certain conditions. (There is porn and talking.)

If you like your Erik on the subby side on occasion, you should definitely read this fic! Long, but very much worth it. And if orgasm delay/denial is among your interests, Erik's frustration is delicious.

Poison! It's Fun All Around, by derryere. (Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, NC-17).

From the second ever post at KMM (/nostalgia), this is dirty talk at its finest, right here. No-one can touch Arthur, including himself, and he has a hard-on that won't go away. Merlin helps.

One of Us Should Know What We're Doing, by helens78. (XMFC RPF, Jennifer/Michael, NC-17.) When Michael tells Jennifer he likes it kinky, she has all these ideas about what he means. They start easy: she'll pin him down and tell him when he can come.

I love Jen's voice here, it's so frank and charming and delightful. And I love the sex, because it is fun and hot.

A Play in Three Acts, by sabrielgrande. (XMFC, Charles/Erik/Raven, NC-17). Take two and call me in the morning.

Charles and Raven decide to compete to see who can be the best Charles. Erik judges. Via sex. Hot sex, a wonderful dynamic between the three of them, and it's fun trying to work out who's who along with Erik.

(belated) fic post: x-men remix!

cherry blossom
I wrote two stories back in August for X-Men Remix! And completely forgot to post them here, oops.

I wrote one fic in the main collection:

Spy vs. Spy (The Power Play Remix) (3750 words) by significantowl
Fandom: X-Men: First Class (2011), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier
Additional Tags: Dubious Consent, Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Alternate Universe - Still Have Powers, Interrogation, Bondage, Orgasm Delay/Denial, Cock Rings, Nipple Play, Stockholm Syndrome, Alternate Universe - Spies & Secret Agents, Remix, Vibrators, Happy Ending
A/N: So many thanks to [personal profile] alba17 and [personal profile] capricornucopia for some truly epic hand-holding on this one, during the writing, editing, and after posting ♥
Summary: Xavier is a legend in the field.  He's known for his cultured charm, his unfailing competence, the power of his mind, and the sins of his body.

And he has information Erik wants.

(Or: in which Charles is basically James Bond, and Erik interrogates him with sex.)

To remix professor's Spy vs. Spy, I decided it would be interesting to see what would happen if I tried it as a powered AU, and if Erik was the interrogator instead of Charles. This fic was a departure for me a lot of ways (I'd never really written toys before, or dubcon, or bondage, and very little anal sex), but challenging myself was a good thing, I think, and maybe I will feel a little more confident with those elements now!

And then I wrote one for madness:

You're Standing in My Doorway (The I Saw You from Afar Remix) (3234 words) by significantowl
Fandom: X-Men: First Class (2011)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No archive warnings apply
Relationships: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier
Additional Tags:Alternate Universe - Canon, Alternate Universe - Still Have Powers, Telepathy, Canon Disabled Character, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Remix, Cities, First Meetings, Powerful Charles, First Kiss
Summary: Five cities Erik visits on the hunt for Shaw, five encounters with Charles. Five doorways he passes through, and one place he stays.

When I was looking for something to remix for madness, I kept coming back to ang3lsh1's You're standing in my doorway, seven cities ago. I love the dreamy quality to the fic, the magic and the mystery, and all the lovely descriptions of cities. I decided to try a canon AU, and see if I could evoke some of that feel with Charles' telepathy behind the encounters. I'm not normally a fast writer (*cough*massive understatement*cough*), and I was having a super-busy week on top of that, so I was really happy I was able to make the deadline!

I'm going to try and do 15 recs this month - 5 posts with 3 or more fics each. Kicking it off tonight with three AUs that make me smile and make my heart go happy and warm, no matter how many times I read them!

645 Riverside Drive, by smilebackwards. (XMFC, Charles/Erik, PG). Azazel clearly has yet to understand the shattering power of Charles' disappointment, so Erik takes one for the team, grabbing the cup and downing the remnants of the cappuccino like a shot while Azazel watches with morbid fascination.

I pulled out the coffee maker the other day for the first time in I don't know when, and tried to make a mocha. I followed the directions on the bag of coffee, triple-checking my math to make sure it was right - that is an awful lot of coffee grounds! I thought - the end result was, I think, probably exactly the sort of coffee Charles makes in this fic. Except there was no Erik around kind enough to drink it anyway, so it all went down the drain.

Erik's smitten devotion in this fic is just the best, most beautiful thing, because he is so completely Erik through it all. And the cast of friends and lookers-on - Alex, Azazel, Raven - are such a delight. And Charles could not be more adorable if he tried. Read this if you like smiling. :-)

Fundamental Imperfection, by Starlingthefool. (Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, R.) In which an argument about Dickens leads to a Twitter scandal, broken bones, midnight conversations, and transatlantic longing. (Or, an AU with Arthur and Merlin as moderately famous authors.)

Okay, just from the hit count I can guess that if you're in Merlin fandom and you like AU's you've probably read this already! Consider this an invitation to re-read, if so (I just did!) It's just so good :) And even if you're not in Merlin fandom, I strongly urge you to give this a go if you love books, or any of the things in the tags: Literary References & Allusions, Nerdery, arguments are the best foreplay, snobbery, Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Alternate Universe - Authors.

(I know there's a sequel, but it's wip and I haven't read it yet - it's tagged angst with a happy ending, and in cases like that I usually wait til something's complete. /weakling)

No Wonder, No Wonder (Other Half), by Luninosity. (XMFC RPF, James/Michael, R.) In which Michael gets a job in a pub, James has a past he doesn't talk about and is probably not magical, and every good fairy tale earns its happy ending.

James may or may not be magical, but this fic definitely is. Michael is charmed by James and the cottage and everyone in the little village, and you will be too! The descriptions are so vivid and lush, and there are moments that absolutely made me catch my breath.

fic post: three fics, three fandoms!

cherry blossom
I wrote things!


Home Together (The Finding Our Way Remix) (1587 words) by significantowl

Rating: Teen and Up
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier
Characters: Erik Lehnsherr, Charles Xavier, Raven | Mystique
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Alternate Universe - College/University, Alternate Universe - No Powers, Erik has a lot of feelings, Disabled Character, Remix, First Kiss, Past minor character death
Summary: Erik is not the sort of person other students strike up conversations with. His expression, his posture, every part of his manner say: Don’t talk to me. I don’t want to talk to you. But none of that stops the boy ahead of him in line with the collapsible white cane, and nothing can stop Erik from falling for him, like it or not.


Co-written with [personal profile] luninosity!

This Love (Will Make Us Worthy) (8719 words) by significantowl, luninosity

Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Michael Fassbender/James McAvoy
Additional Tags: Newly established relationship, sexy application of tanning lotion, Hand Jobs, Frottage, porn with emotions, Talking, Sexual Content, Emotional Hurt/Comfort, Nudity
Summary: During the filming of Trance, Michael discovers the bottle of tanning lotion on James' bathroom counter that he uses for nude scenes on-screen - and off. Cue important conversations in a still-new relationship, and Michael helping James with the lotion in more ways than one.


Where the Current and the Heavens Collide (752 words) by significantowl

Rating: Explicit
Relationships: Freya/Merlin
Additional Tags: Community: summerpornathon, Face-Sitting, Cunnilingus, Post-Canon
Summary: Freya and Merlin in a cottage by the sea. Maybe it's the same for Merlin, beneath her. She's the air he breathes and the taste on his tongue, and he knows her magic like she knows the sea: there is kinship between them, deep and undeniable, but neither their power nor their purpose is the same.

I didn't participate in the in main remix challenge this year, but I did sign up for Madness, and a wonderful person remixed one of my fics! Surfacing (A Sometimes Bodies Remix) is a remix of my Ten/Martha fic sometimes bodies (hurt/comfort and sex in the TARDIS pool, post-42). I love what they did with the story! There's great banter between Martha and Ten, and playfulness, and a strong sense that Martha really understands him (and is quite ready to call him on his posturing when he needs it!) If you love Martha I definitely recommend you check it out! ♥

I wrote one story in the Madness collection. If you have a guess as to which one is mine, I'd love to hear it! :D
