Rec: Nine Eleven Ten by Subtilior

I'm trying to battle the feeling of being sad and tired all the time. Tumblr is becoming a not so happy place for me. I just want to have some joy back in fandom. I decided to do a little recing challenge for myself. I will to make 25 recs of works over 50k words in various fandoms.

Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Characters/Pairings: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier, Emma Frost, Jean Grey
Rating: Mature
Length: 438,189 words (WIP)
Categories: Alternate Universe - Dystopia, Dark, Post-Apocalyptic

Summary: Beauty and the Beast AU. Years later, Charles would remember that day. Sometimes he would wonder if he could have changed anything; other times he would despair over what he had since become. But he would always hold the image in his mind: Raven, laughing, and his thoughts flying alongside her on strong wings, silver-gold through the winter air. Once upon a time.

Notes: This is the darkest and most complex story I read in my entire fannish life, a suspenseful ride through a terrifying new world through Charles' eyes. The world building and the mysterious circumstances of Charles' captivity is what keeping me interested in reading this monster. Charles and Erik relationship so far is fascinating to see developed and by far, the most twisted relationship I ever read in fiction in my life so far.
