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.

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.

Many thanks go to [personal profile] stlkrchck, for again imparting her NYC knowledge. I feel like I know more about this city now than I do my hometown.

Another huge thanks to [personal profile] afrocurl for our fantastic poetry. I forgot to mention this before, but whenever you click on a link to one of her poems, if you then click on the poem, it'll take you to her AO3 account, which is a great place to leave kudos/comments (so that she does miss them here). Be sure to give her all the love she deserves.

Sorry if you were hoping for a new Ideal Grace chapter. That's coming tomorrow. Today I wanted to share this:



Which the lovely eira_cannaid made for me. It's got puzzle pieces! For Tessellation! Isn't that fantastic? I honestly have no idea what I've done to inspire such brilliance (all I do is mash a keyboard and stuff comes out), but I am more than thrilled to receive it. Thank you so, so much.

~*~

I'll also mention that I'm writing an aside parody for An Ideal Grace called "How it's not going to happen". I'm doing this mostly to amuse myself, but also because I recognize just how insanely ludicrous it is that no one has figured out Charles is a professor yet. I thought it might be fun to make fun of myself for a bit. It'll get posted only at the kinkmeme. Here is part 1:

Notes: I'm still a little aflutter at the moment, because eira_cannaid made me the most beautiful cover in the world and I don't think I will ever wrap my head around someone wanting to make art for one of my stories. It is the most stunning thing I've ever seen, and I'm certain I will be choked up about it for days. I absolutely had to share it with you guys.



There are no words. Thank you.

Also, once again afrocurl has written our poetry. It's still as beautiful as ever, and I will never be able to thank her enough. We are so, so lucky to have her.

Summary: Charles and Erik as university professors. Need I say more?
Author's note: Erik's poetry was written by the lovely afrocurl. I wish I could write a million chapters of this so that it would never end. I swear she is Erik personified. Her writing has inspired whole scenes in this story--has made it a thousand times better than it might otherwise have been.

Another thanks to stlkrchck, for ensuring our New York setting is as realistic as possible. I cannot tell you how many emails I've sent that have started with: so, I want to do this, is there anywhere in NY… She answers me every time.

Author's note: Erik's poetry was written by the lovely afrocurl. There are no words to express how grateful I am to her lending her talent to this verse. Her insight into Erik's soul is stunning and guaranteed to break your heart. Even if you're not reading this story, you should be reading her poetry.

Summary: Charles and Erik as university professors. Need I say more?
Author's note: Erik's untitled poem was written by the lovely afrocurl. She is incredibly talented, so please take a minute to extend your thanks to her for sharing her work. Her poem completely captures exactly what it is Erik is feeling at this point in the story. It is lovely and haunting and sad and utterly heartbreaking and this chapter wouldn't be half as meaningful without it. Thank you.

Also, thanks to anonymous for pointing out the awesome gif I've borrowed. Not sure who to credit for the original, so if it's yours let me know--and thanks!

Warning: brief allusion to Raven's childhood abuse.
