: Wanda & Pietro MaximoffRating
: Minor Character DeathSummary
: It was strange how the tables turned, and how anyone could get dragged under the rip tide of life. Even quicksilver Pietro, who escaped every obstacle by simply being too fast to be caught. The problem with running was that sometimes there was nowhere to run to, and there was a big difference between running away from a thing and running towards it. Maybe Hank was right. Maybe no matter how good you were, the house always won, and in the end, life always screwed you over.A/N
: This was partially based on a one-line text post from tumblr which I can’t find now, which said “can you imagine what would happen with Peter Maximoff turned up outside Xavier Mansion after DOFP, like hey Prof, do you mind if I crash on your couch a bit?” Like I tend to, I took the prompt and beat it to death.
Fic at LJ
Is anyone still around here for discussion and such? I just got back from an advance watch of "Days of Future Past" and am willing to answer questions if anyone's like me and kind of likes spoilers. Or, you know, if anyone else has gotten to see it and would like to discuss.
(So I guess if anyone actually comments here and asks, I should warn there might be spoilers in the comments section? LOL)
Alternatively, if anyone goes to see it in 2-3 days and would like to discuss ...?

Hello, all! I didn't know if you'd seen the lovely new Erik and Charles character posters for Days of Future Past yet:

After a chance meeting, the recently reunited mutant school-master and leader of the Brotherhood both become fascinated by Gabrielle Haller, a human who has demons of her own to fight. As Erik finds himself pulled between his mutant identity and his human heritage, Charles wrestles with his own ethical code and his attraction to his friend. The innocent distraction between the three of them rapidly grows more complicated and, ultimately, altogether more sinister. Author's notes
In the comics, Gabrielle Haller is an Israeli diplomat and lawyer, who in her youth had an affair with Xavier. Also, in an alternative universe she marries Magneto. (This meta post
gives a run-through of her role in the comics, but the fic is written so that you don't need any previous knowledge of the character.) I wanted to bring her into the XMFC 'verse, and ended up with this.Chapter one - prologueChapter twoChapter threeChapter fourChapter fiveChapter sixChapter sevenChapter eightChapter nineChapter tenChapter elevenChapter twelveChapter thirteenChapter fourteenChapter fifteenChapter sixteenChapter seventeenChapter eighteenChapter nineteen - epilogueThe fic can also be read on AO3.
