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.

Listen.. people be asking me all the time, "Yo Mos, what's gettin' ready to happen with Hip-Hop?"

I tell em, "You know what's gonna happen with Hip-Hop? Whatever's happening with us"

If we smoked out, Hip-Hop is gonna be smoked out. If we doing alright, Hip-Hop is gonna be doing alright.

People talk about Hip-Hop like it's some giant livin' in the hillside comin' down to visit the townspeople.

We ARE Hip-Hop. Me, you, everybody, we are Hip-Hop. So Hip-Hop is going where we going.

So the next time you ask yourself where Hip-Hop is going, ask yourself, "Where am I going? How am I doing?"

'Til you get a clear idea. So.. if Hip-Hop is about the people and the Hip-Hop won't get better until the people get better, then how do people get better? Well, from my understanding people get better when they start to understand that, they are valuable...
