Summary: An alphabetical collection of snippets revolving around the relationship of Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto) and Charles Xavier (Professor X)
A – Alone
He thought he was alone in this world, like the Frankenstein’s monster he had been created to be. Until a voice, a gentle but firm voice mysteriously found its way into the tumultuous mess of rage and murderous intents that was his mind.
“You’re not alone.”
Not now, at least.
B – Blue
Charles didn’t really save him when they met for the first time, for Erik wasn’t going to drown; he was a much better survivor than that. Yet, as they spent their time together, Erik found himself hopelessly drowning in the blue of Charles’s eyes.
C – Chance
“God has given us a second chance, Charles.”
Erik stood straight and firmly, no longer in his withered, wounded and dying body of the dark future; he was youthful and vigorous again.
So was Charles.
“It wasn’t God, Erik, but us.”
On his legs Charles walked steadily toward Erik. He reached out and gently pulled his friend into his embrace.
“Let’s start things over, my friend.”
D – Delivery
“This arrived early in the morning, the receiver being you but the sender’s left blank.”
Hank laid a starch white box on the table before Charles. “You happen to know the sender?”
Charles answered while carefully lifting the box to examine its weight before opening it.
Charles’s blood froze at the sight of a pair of arms placed neatly inside, the visible veins under the skin and dark blotches of dried blood indicating they weren’t the least unauthentic.
And to confirm the identity of their owner, there was a row of numbers tattooed on the left forearm.
E – Experiment
Charles woke up on the floor, the cold, hard uncarpeted floor, to the chill of a winter morning. When he discovered what had kicked him off his dear, warm bed, for the first time in his life, Charles was mad with anger.
That had been one huge bloody mistake.
He shouldn’t have found Hank’s idea interesting and approved to it. He shouldn’t have allowed Hank to carry out the experiment. Most of all, he shouldn’t have let Erik participate in this bloody experiment.
Why Erik, of all mutants in the house?
Because Erik was the only one who could control the magnetic field and that helped the experiment, Hank explained. That and because the metal bender was more than eager to help as a way to make up for his mess in D.C.
The experiment, as far as Hank concerned, was a fair success and Erik came out in one piece and unharmed. It didn’t look like a mistake…
… Not a mistake, a disaster.
It was not until later, when Charles found himself on the floor, absent of Erik’s warmth and cuddle, that he came to this conclusion.
On their bed lied a shark, its massive body occupying the king-sized bed.
What was a bigger surprise for him, Charles mused for a brief moment, a shark that was sleeping peacefully or a shark that was living perfectly healthy out of water.
Nope. It was the fact that this shark was having Erik’s platinum chain around his neck (if sharks have neck) that shocked Charles the most.
Erik had forged an identical pair to mark their reconciliation: one for himself and one for Charles.
Why, of all animal, a shark, Erik?” was Charles’s mental groan.
And the next thing was an earthshaking shout at the name of Henry Phillip “Hank” McCoy.
Well, basically, in “Delivery”, someone had sawed off Erik’s arms (and probably killed him too), wrapped them up and had them sent to Charles (this story line may continue)
My dark, twisted mind rises again ORZ
First shark joke lol
