I actually wrote something! Longest fic I've ever written, and the first time since, uh, 2007 that I've written something that's not for a winter fic exchange.


X-Men Reverse Bang entry: An Open Door
Original Art Prompt: 1037
Art link: Art Masterlist
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] eckses

Fic Title: An Open Door
Author: [personal profile] oxymora
X-Men Verse: X-Men First Class
Characters/Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 11,995
Warnings/Contains: Still-powered Priest!AU. Mentions of child abuse (off screen, nothing that's not in the movie).

Summary: Behold, I have given before thee a door opened, which no man can shut. In which Charles is a priest, Erik is a Nazi hunter, the two of them are childhood friends and each thinks that the other should change his job.

I'd never have guessed that my first stab at the 10,000 word barrier would be priest!fic (nothing against the genre, I simply haven't had much exposure to it before!), but I've been utterly intrigued by eckses' amazing artwork from the very start. The looks on their faces! The body language! The shading! All my inspiration for this has been flowing directly from that picture, and I only wish I had more practice to do it justice. Go give her feedback!
