Before we get started, I wanted to mention that the next chapter will be a little delayed. I have some non fanish edits I need to do for an anthology one of my shorts is going to be featured in, and then I have a half marathon I'm doing on Sunday, so the weekend looks to be insanely busy. I'll try to get chapter 13 up by Tuesday at the latest (though this is a happy place to leave things for a few days).

Also, I've gone ahead and gotten a tumblr, mostly because I was getting sick of not being able to thank people who rec'd my stories or made me art. I'm not sure if I'll use it, and if I do it'll probably be to spam people with cat macros and possibly pics of the dresses I make, but I've been randomly adding people whose names I recognize. If you've got a tumblr and want to be followed, drop me a line.

Note: A huge thank you to Sam, for provided me with a thorough background in genetics and related research. Because of her this fic might actually be somewhat plausible. That being said, I am not a psychiatrist or a psychologist, so any mistakes inside Emma's SOAP are due entirely to my ignorance.

I made it my new years resolution to be more social, something I'm terrible at, so I've been adding people to my reading circle and trying to read more fic (my god there is a lot of fic in the xmfc fandom--I don't think I've even touched 5% of it yet). The effort is probably going to crash and burn, somewhat spectacularly, but if I'm suddenly commenting on stuff, this is why.

Also, I am filling mini crack fills for the best prompt ever over at the kink meme. Erik is Survivorman and Charles is his long suffering husband who accompanies Erik on his expeditions. I won't be posting these snippets anywhere else.

OMG. Verilyvexed made a comic for An Ideal Grace. I am too stunned to do anything but stare and coo and maybe flail a little (okay, a lot).

Thank you. I am so humbled.

Palalife once again honoured me with art. This:

Absolutely stunning piece of work is for a scene in chapter 9. If you have a tumblr, please leave a note. I'm going to go cry some more.

Quick note: I will now be doing the annual family celebration circuit. This means I will be drunk for the next week or so. There will not be an update until the insanity is over. If you don't hear from me by middle of next week: SEND HELP.

Oh, and happy whatever it is you celebrate or don't celebrate to ease this, our darkest month of the year.

A huge thank you to Sam, for both inspiring bits of this (and other chapters) as well as providing intensely detailed notes on life in a genetics lab. I cannot put into words the sheer awesomeness of that. Thank you. Another thanks to stlkrchck for taking the time to give me virtual tours of New York.

I forgot to mention the last time I posted that this time of the year is exceedingly busy, so these chapters won't be posted quite as fast as the last series. That should change once we get past the holiday season.

AO3 link. I will also be posting the sequel there and here, but not on the kinkmeme. Check back early next week for chapter 1.

Title: Safe Houses (was posted on the kink meme as What Cost Life)
Fandom: XMFC (with some comics and X1-3)
Pairing: Charles/Erik, not realized
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 4,000
Summary: Written for this prompt, which asks for Erik giving up his powers to save a dying Charles.

Warnings: This is a bittersweet fic in which Charles and Erik love one another beyond imagination, and yet, cannot find their way to a happily ever after. This story also takes serious liberties with comic!canon, specifically the Phoenix Force/Jean Grey relationship. Very AU for that.

Oh My God. Look at what Palalife made me

Seriously, go check it out. It's Charles, with Erik's poetry on his hip, and it's the most stunning thing I've ever seen. Still crying.
nekosmuse: (Default)
So here is the final chapter. I really didn't set out to write a ridiculous, suspend your disbelief rom-com (and if you were hoping this would be anything like my last long XMFC fic, I feel I owe you several apologies). Not that I didn't have a shitload of fun writing this (and that's pretty much what writing fic is all about, so...) but yes, I have no idea where this came from.

That being said, yes, there is a sequel planned, though it won't be quite as ludicrous plot-wise. Actually, scratch that, it will probably be just as ludicrous.

I owe several thanks at this point. First, to the OP (who I believe I scared off some time ago--sorry about that) for the awesome prompt that I rather stopped following after a while (possibly why I scared OP off, actually). To [personal profile] afrocurl for all her beautiful poetry. I'm still amazed by how well you captured Erik, and how seamlessly your work fit throughout the fic. This was very much a collaborative effort. Another thanks to [personal profile] stlkrchck for all the New York background info, and for acting as my on demand 411 service. To [profile] eira_cannaid for the beautiful cover art she made me.

And thanks to everyone following and commenting, because following a WIP can be hard, and this type of fic certainly isn't for everyone, but authors do appreciate it when people take the time to comment, if only so that they don't feel like they're shouting into the void. It's also given me the chance to have some really engaging discussions, which have been thoroughly enjoyable.

I will post a link to the AO3 version when it is up.

Apologies for the lateness of this. As you can see, there are 2 chapters, because I couldn't really post one without the other. Also, I have chicken pox, which is not something you want as an adult, so I've been a little out of it lately.

Notes: A huge thank you to [personal profile] afrocurl both for sharing her wonderful poetry with us and for agreeing to look this parts over. Having a second set of eyes was tremendously helpful.

Also, thank you to [personal profile] stlkrchck for all of her NY info. That being said, the Coney Island bit is largely based off my memory, so if there are mistakes there, they are my own.
