Summary: Charles meets the brilliant geneticist, Erik Lehnsherr, during an otherwise run-of-the-mill internship, and his world turns upside down; an "X-Men: Evolutions" origin story. Written using the fourth prompt table (unofficially, 'cause I'm a jerk) over at 1fandom. Warning: Flagrant semi-colon abuse (to actually keep this at only 50 sentences, natch); mentions of infidelity (contains both Erik/Charles and Charles/Gabrielle).
( 'It's not a confession, per se, as much as it is Charles being in the wrong place when Erik decides to let loose; the (metal) tray floats effortlessly in the air before him, and he's plucking a slim, glass tube from it when his head whips around, his mouth hanging open suddenly when he hears a small noise: 'Charles,' he intones in shock, and Charles doesn't know what to say. )
