valmora: "we three" witches, meeting again (Default)
[personal profile] valmora
I love Charles/Erik/Charles enough, and the movie panders to me enough, that anything not including that [homoerotic] relationship in some capacity is essentially not worth reading for me.

Last updated: 19 July 2011

Notes: No particular order. No guarantees of worksafeness unless I say so explicitly. Angst is to be expected.

Everything is Charles/Erik/Charles - after the beach. practically perfect in every way. made me cry. - a series, involving consent play and mind control and the burdens of that game - James Bond Casino Royale fusion. (read this author's stuff), WIP - a completed, mutant James Bond AU - somewhereinbetween on AO3 - raven as calvin, hank as hobbes, and raven's parents are long-suffering - meeting in dreams, and not - the travails of running the school (together) - erik views sexual arousal as kind of annoying; charles views erik's sexual arousal as extremely annoying - erik wants charles to mess with his brain chemistry for nefarious (sexual) purposes - temperature kink, anal beads - erik deems that charles is delirious at the end of the beach scene and they go to a safe house; extremely au. part of a series. i'm reccing this tentatively because I don't know where it's going, but I think it has a lot of potential. - the myth of a helmet - distantfridays on AO3 - the pevensie children weren't the only ones to fall into narnia. (crossover, obvs) - fusion with Good Omens. - internalized homophobia - homo sapiens au, class conflict like in "atonement", this author apparently has other fics with serious not-PC issues, but this is good - hank and alex get into fistfights, and erik and charles are love at first sight, and the children engage in relationship interference, funny (AU)[]=253298 - Jai at AO3, aching - a philosophical discussion about control gets personal - charles should have loved moira, and is not actually queer despite, well, erik. not angsty.[]=253298 - sasha_b on AO3 - 50 years on, an article about an interview (happy ending) - erik and charles, morning quiet (g-rated) - charles laments his difficulties with women to raven[]=253298 - littledust's XMFC fic at AO3 - recced by [ profile] figletofvenice with the summary "erik and charles hunt nazis and it's pretty bleak and awesome" - recced by [ profile] figletofvenice, "erik and charles get pushed into the future (aka after the first x-men movies) and have to figure out why and how" - charles and erik meet in prague when charles is 17, AU, codependent beyond belief, health, or sanity, slight d/s elements - they keep waking up in bed together. - for the gay marriage meme, derp derp soulmated forever[]=253298 - imogenedisease on AO3 - Orockthro on AO3 - one morning during the road trip - erik really likes that charles is more than he seems; mind control telepathy sex extremely consenting - erik tries to think of what charles means to him - fifty years of loving each other, topical, political, beautiful, I wept. this will always be the last url in this entry because I view it as the opposite side of the coin mirror image of the first fic in this entry.

Can 2 men just respect each other while disagreeing without it being subtext?

Yes. I even agree that men can have very close, very intimate (in a nonsexual sense) friendships. And maybe that's what you'll get out of it when you see the movie. I didn't. (Even James McAvoy (Xavier) referred to the movie as a romance.)

By the way, you commented on the other icon, but the above is Magneto as seen in X-Men 2.

Anyhow I guess I misunderstood your comment about Charles and Eric as meaning "in general" not necessarily "as depicted in this film". If you mean "as depicted in this film" then I cannot disagree with you. I do not think that's an accurate depiction of their relationship as it has been told in the comics or in any other media but heck they were even laying in bed together at one point, so i can't really say anything.

Then again I loathed the movie but that's for reasons completely other than that.

I know. I did see it. But it was thematically appropriate, so I felt no need to comment on it. (Although, seriously, McKellen!Magneto = ♥)

as it has been told in the comics or in any other media
No, I'm not familiar with any canon other than the movies (X1-X3, XMFC). If I had had intimate knowledge of the comic canon walking into XMFC, as you do, then I probably would have seen it as deliberate homoeroticisation of the characters, intended as fanservice. And that would have upset me.

As it is, however, I can't say that the pandering homoerotic fanservice didn't please me.

as it has been told in the comics or in any other media
At this point I'm pretty much just like, "You know what? Nothing is interlinked canon. The X# movies are their own separate canon, of which X3 might not even count; XMFC is its own separate canon that isn't compliant with the X movies....etc" I'm trying to enjoy things for what they are.

loathed the movie but that's for reasons completely other than that.
Care to share? (I assume it isn't the race issues.)
