Huh. AO3 tells me I've posted five fics so far this month. This can only mean one thing: I have been avoiding work!

Anyway, for the record, for [livejournal.com profile] purimgifts this year, I wrote two Sleepy Hollow fics (my first in the fandom) and one Sherlock fic. The rules of the exchange are that the stories need to be under 1,000 words, and, in honor of the holiday, must concern either 1)a Jewish character, 2) a female character, or 3) characters defeating an Evil Vizier. I like it best when I get matched so that I can write about Jewish characters, but I enjoy writing about ladies, too, as I did this year.

This year, I received a fascinating XMFC story, In Which Meir Kahane Gave Magneto a Bloody Nose (with parts 2 and 3). Two of my favorite things about XMFC are its exploration of Erik's uneasy relationship to his Jewish identity/heritage, and the way it maps mutant politics onto other issues of the twentieth century: this story does both!

nb: my other two March fics are a Rivers of London story and another Sherlock story, this one Sherlock/Mary.

I am off for work travel tomorrow, and won't really be back until 3/30. See y'all next month!

So, kinda by the skin of my teeth, I finished a line for [community profile] kink_bingo

card and thoughts under cut )
ariadnes_string: (Fassy torso)
Title: Stars Hide Your Fires
Rating: NC-17
Pairing/fandom: Charles/Erik, XMFC
Word count: ~2.8K
Warnings: sexual arousal from punishment (RACK). Minor rimming and bloodplay.
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit.
a/n: for the “caning” square on my [community profile] kink_bingo card
a/n: title from Macbeth by way of Mumford and Sons.
a/n: many thanks to [personal profile] linaerys for the beta!

Summary: Suddenly, Charles seemed to notice what Erik was holding. He came nearer, put his left hand between Erik’s on the birch rod. Time to let go, Erik told himself. But he didn’t. And so they stayed like that, both holding it, so close Erik could feel the iron eddying in Charles’s blood. The thing that was always between them snapped and quivered like a banner in a gale.

Posting before I lose courage. This was way too hard to write for such fluff, y’all, for reasons that are unclear to me. Maybe it’s the telepathy, but Charles is so much more difficult for me to write than Erik. Though I do love a character who can make endless literary allusions. I didn’t mean it to be quite the h/c porn that it is. It’s not porn—there’s hardly even any touching—but, well, porn just the same.

Title: Every Man His Lion
Fandom: XMFC
Rating: PG, gen, even if it is quite slashy gen.
Characters: Charles, Erik.
Genre: shameless h/c.
Warnings/Spoilers: n/a, though it is a missing scene for the movie, I guess—slotting in after the “there’s more to you than that” scene.
Word Count: ~2.6K
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit.

a/n: For this prompt over at Running Hot, and for the “trust issues” square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card. And kind of because [livejournal.com profile] norgbelulah wondered where the all comfort was in the other XMFC fic I wrote.

Summary: Erik is ill. Charles tries to help him sleep.

Title: Libertad
Fandom: XMFC
Character: Erik Lehnsherr
Rating: PG (themes of grief and loss)
Warnings/Spoilers: n/a--takes place during the years the movie skips.
Word Count: ~1.5K
Disclaimer: Not mine, no profit.

a/n: the Kol Nidre is the opening part of the Yom Kippur evening service. The Aramaic chant is also called “All Vows,” since it begs that the congregants be forgiven for vows they have taken in the past year. It is repeated three times by the cantor; the congregation’s response is also chanted three times. Yom Kippur is the Jewish Day of Atonement, and is observed as a fast day from sundown to sundown.
a/n: The idea for this comes entirely from [livejournal.com profile] linaerys. She didn’t really mean it as a prompt, but was very gracious about letting me write it when I pounced on it snarling and refused to let it go. And then she beta’d it for me. Many thanks, bb!

Summary: Erik knew the look, had seen it his whole life, even before the war. ”You, with your height and blue eyes and straight nose, you can pass. You can be free of us. You are not marked with your difference.” If you only knew, he’d thought then. He thought the same thing now. And it was that thought, as much as anything, that made him move towards the gate.
