Title: Synthesis (Scenes from an AU)
Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Wordcount: 15,000
Rating: Mature
Characters: Erik, Charles, most of the movie casts
Pairing(s): Erik/Charles
Synthesis is a dynamic process. Or, scenes from the AU where Charles and Erik have sex, get married, become best friends, and run the school together.

Warnings for the Holocaust, implicit references to torture and child abuse, institutional misogyny, and potential dub-con situations, depending on how you interpret Erik/Charles. This is not "fix-it" fic; this is another possible road. Also contains various other pairings in the background.

Thanks so much to [personal profile] oliviacirce for the awesome beta-reading, hand-holding, and general comics canon pointers.

Synthesis on the AO3

Wow, I'm finished and it's posted! I feel like I could go on for pages about this fic, but I should probably just say that it mixes comic, movie, and cartoon canon with abandon, and let the story speak for itself. All 15K words of it, holy crap.
