Genre: Romance, Alternate Universe (Modern, High School), Angst
Length: WIP (Incomplete)
Summary: So Erik starts dating Charles, a human, and he’s all embarrassed about it but then, BWAHREVELATIONANDLIFECHANGINGVIEWCHANGE, an he loves him regardless and is proudly showing off his very human lover.
BUT THEN: (Oh no!)
Charles’ mutant abilities pop up. (Late bloomer?) And Charles immediately shows Erik, thinking about how happy he will be to not contradict his beliefs by screwing a normie.
But Erik hates it. But not because of the mutation itself, he just doesn’t like that Charles has one, because now Charles is a BAMF and doesn’t need Erik to protect him all the time. (And Erik was always slightly turned on how he would always be stronger than weak Charles; kinda like a size kink) So Erik feels unneeded because Charles can just cancel out his powers (Erik’s) with a thought and broods.
He won’t speak to Charles, whenever Charles enters a room he leaves, etc.
Charles thinks Erik doesn’t like his mutation and tries to suppress it, trying to fit in again but that only make Erik even more irritated, Erik thinking Charles is uncomfortable with his gift. (Mutant and Proud!)
So misunderstandings all around and stuff, but eventually happy ending and lovely cuddle time on the couch?
Mod Comment: So this is pretty much what it says above but since this is still WIP, we’re still stuck with the angsty part. And. It. Is. So. Incredibly. Heartbreaking.
I shall spend the rest of my day creying a ocean full of tears and then possibly drown in them.
