It Might Have Been - Unforgotten - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
When Charles dies in his seventies, he's pretty surprised to wake up in his fifteen-year-old body, nearly sixty years in the past—and even more surprised to learn that Erik has come back, too. Together, they relive their lives, making sure they get everything right this time. They have to. After all, it's not like they're ever going to get another second chance...

when you wake - sevenfoxes - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Darcy cringes. “Souvenir from Clint and Natasha’s mission. Apparently it fell out of the sky in Bucharest,” she says, peering through the glass at the creature. “Don’t worry, they’re pretty sure it’s dead.”

Turning back to look at Steve, she yawns a bit, not bothering to hide her gaping mouth behind a hand, which makes him smile a bit for the first time today. “You know, I asked Clint to bring me back something, but I was thinking more like a keychain or booze from the duty free section of the airport.” She sighs. “Those two are worse than cats. Oh here master, I’ve brought you a present! A half-digested dead mouse! I am so great, right? Pet me, validate me, now I’m going to go vomit on your rug and brush you off with casual disinterest.”

“Am I calling you master now?” Clint asks, slinking from around the corner and wiggling his eyebrows. “Postscript: you can pet me anytime.”

--

Live. Die. Repeat.

Steve learns to navigate a life where his death resets time, robbing memories from those around him, changing the course of his constantly rewriting history.

Of Many - Asidian - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
He tries it the easy way, the first time, like the coward Steve's never believed he is.

It's 1943, and Bucky's still waking clammy with night sweats, phantom restraints pinning him down and Zola's voice in his head. He's still talking big to cover how he jerks away whenever anyone puts a hand on him. He’s pretending he doesn't see the way Steve looks at him, the way they all look at him, like he's in danger of coming apart.

Only this time – this time when they try to give him a discharge, he takes it. He crams what little owns in his duffel and ships off for the states.

Underground - Margo_Kim - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Five years ago, Thor's Chitauri army decimated the Earth. Now what's left of humanity lives in bases under the Earth's surface, safe from the toxic atmosphere. Tony likes to think that humanity's adapted pretty well. After all, they have movie nights and dances; they're doing better than could be expected. But when he learns that the little world of safety and stability they've carved out is about to be slowly but surely destroyed, the New York Underground is left with only two options--fight or flight. Tony knows which one he wants. If only Steve weren't on the exact opposite side. Meanwhile, Natasha wants whatever option will save Clint, Pepper wants whatever option will save the base, Maria Hill wants whatever option will save everybody, and nobody's exactly sure who Loki's trying to save, but everyone's hoping it's more than just himself.

Lucid Dreaming - listerinezero - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Magneto finds himself in 1962, on the morning they go to Cuba, in the bed of the young Charles who'd spent months letting him think they were in love before breaking his heart.

Orphans of Forgetting - pocky_slash - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Magneto dies on a Wednesday afternoon. He's come to terms with what he's been and what he's done, but as he follows his guide through the underworld towards his final destination, he's forced to confront the figures of his past and answer the question they all have for him: if he could do it all again, would he do things differently? And even if he would, does he have it in him to trust Charles Xavier enough to get the second chance he's being offered?

Happy Thought - Unforgotten - X-Men: First Class (2011), X-Men (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Charles expects Erik to show up at the mansion within a few months or at most a year after the War. It's not like he's really a teenage boy, any more than Charles is. As erratic as Erik's mutation may yet be - as undeveloped as Charles' own is, now - he's seventy damned years old and Charles knows that if he's here, he's very capable of finding his way to Westchester by whatever means necessary.

If he's not here, then there's some reason he hasn't come yet.

Be One Traveler - perryvic, Zaganthi (Caffiends) - X-Men (Comicverse) [Archive of Our Own]
Should he go to Erik tonight? With Moira so close by? That was courting danger. He should go to Moira, because that was what he should do, logic, common sense, instincts pushed him that way. But something thin and persistent pulled him the other way. A whisper that he would regret turning left in the corridor rather than right.

After Magneto of an X2-ish future succeeds in the unthinkable, Charles sends his consciousness back to 1962 to guide Erik away from the path that will lead to the genocide of the human race forty years hence.

Enigma - Yahtzee - X-Men: First Class (2011), X-men - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Erik dies, or finds a reversey-time mutant, or a magical time travelling device, and wakes up in the past. This time, though, it's before he ever met Charles - in fact, it's before his mother died.

Undone - Yahtzee - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
This began as a short ficlet written for this kink meme prompt: "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.' - Heraclitus

Post-X3 Charles, instead of transfering his consciousness to the coma guy, finds his mind back in the body of his younger self, right after Shaw's attack on the CIA compound, on their way to the mansion.

The thing: Charles' wants to fix what happened with Erik, but he can't bring himself to do it. He knows that this younger Erik can't be held responsible for his future self's actions, but, nonetheless, here is the man who will paralyze him, who will leave him on the beach, who will turn his sister into a merciless killer. Here is the man who will betray him in the worst way possible, by using him as a tool, a weapon, in his quest to kill all the humans.

So Charles blows cool and hot towards Erik, and Erik is left wondering where all the UST went and why Charles is suddenly so...emotionally distant, even when they're spending more time together than they used to.

He opened his mouth, a denial on the tip of his tongue, but the words wouldn't come out; in the back of his head he could hear a litany of voices saying traitor, traitor, traitor over and over, and he didn't know whether they meant Uther or himself.
