Fic by wallhaditcoming
: Cannot be Contained in Words
Fic Summary: Crime syndicate head Erik Lehnsherr travels to London on business, where he meets Oxford student Charles Xavier. Their liaison spawns into a years long transatlantic affair, kept apart by Erik's work and Charles' studies, which Erik chronicles in photographs. When distance ceases to be an issue after four long years, the overlap between Charles' past and Erik's work create a whole new set of complications.
A/N: As usual, this entire thing started from a manip of Erik and Charles that needed fleshing out in order to become a workable prompt. During my creative process, I came across a picture of Michael Fassbender framing a shot of himself with his hands and a bunch of candid b/w pics from a magazine spread of James McAvoy that just screamed Charles Xavier to me. So my brain said, "How about an AU where Erik is a photographer who is in love with his subject?" My wonderful author, wallhaditcoming
, took my simple prompt and not only expanded upon it, but delivered a fic that went above and beyond my wildest expectations. So much of this art is due to her, as we clicked right from the start and kept inspiring each others muses at every turn. Needless to say, working with her was an absolute joy and so much fun I never wanted it to end. SHE'S AWESOME AND I LOVE HER, OK? Go read the fic and shower her with all the love she deserves! ♥
