The Boy with the Blue Eyes - nekosmuse, pallorsomnium - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
We do not breach the void, his mother said, when he was a boy and new to such things.

We do not breach the void, the Elders said, when he was an adolescent, weak though he thought himself strong.

We do not breach the void, his father said, when he reached the flush of manhood, stout and brave and unafraid.

But Erik cares not for their words. He's spent a lifetime staring into the void, into the startlingly blue eyes of the boy on the other side.

We do not breach the void, the songs whisper, but Erik doesn't listen.

I prompted this MYSELF on the Kink Meme and then got obsessed with it and had to write! "It's still the early 1960s. Charles grew up devoutly religious, went to seminary and took orders.

And for the few years he's been a priest, he's been a good one. He coordinates volunteering and assistance for several charities in New York City, where his parish is, and doesn't mind the life of poverty he leads (though his sister Raven sometimes comes in from upstate to ask him if he doesn't miss champagne at all.)

Then he comes up with the idea of partnering with a Jewish organization that helps the poor, which meets with some resistance from the Catholic brass -- but Charles is firm that all children are God's children and they should do what's right.

Then he meets Erik Lehnsherr, the devout Jew and Holocaust survivor who runs that other charity, who is so fiercely protective of his charges that it moves Charles' heart -- and the first time their eyes meet, Charles has to confront the greatest temptation he'll ever know, and the church's teachings about what love is."

In this AU, Charles has powers - he just doesn't know it.
