The Attempt - Yahtzee - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]


Author: Yahtzee

Rated: Explicit

Pairings: Erik/Charles, slight Charles/Moira

Length: 15,800

Summary: Written for the following prompt: Charles knows everything about Erik, knows how obsessive and self-destructive he is, how Erik would do anything, give anything, in his quest for vengeance against Shaw. But he also knows that Erik loves him in ways that aren’t exactly platonic.

I’d like to see a completely straight!Charles, out of pure love and care of Erik, initiate a romantic relationship with him. It can be because he wishes to give Erik something positive in his life or because he thinks it might help change Erik’s mind about Shaw, the reason is up to author. Also, while Charles finds intimacy with Erik strange and awkward, he does enjoy the new, non-romantic layers that have developed in their relationship.

Rec notes: When I read the summary for the fic I was a little unsure of whether or not I would enjoy it. But I went ahead and read it anyway and I have to say that I’m glad I did. It’s not one of the happiest fics I’ve read, but it’s very bittersweet in the best way.

I will never be over this fic





She was so good in this movie I sometimes forgot Tom Cruise was there and he was the main character yes. She’s a war hero who has the epithet of Full Metal Bitch and conversely, the Angel of Verdun

And she absolutely refuses to let sentimentality get in the way of her goal ie saving the world

Like i want to take her out of this movie and transplant her into another verse

She was 100% the best part of this movie.

She spent 99.9% the movie being 1000% done with Tom Cruise’s character’s shit and it was fantastic
