Anonymous said: AU fic where Charles is the med student and Erik is an uncooperative patient, but Charles really needs it to go well for a grade.
[i am so sorry, anon, i know literally nothing about medicine and tbh the human body sort of grosses me out, so here a sort of crack-ier take on it. also everything i know about med school is from scrubs. thanks for the prompt and i hope you like it!]
Charles looked at the clock on the wall behind the nurse’s station and promptly rubbed his eyes with a weary hand. It was four am. His shift in the overnight ward was only half over and already he wanted to lock himself in a broom cupboard and maybe shoot up one of the stronger tranquilizers so he could have a moment’s peace.
Dr. MacTaggart, his favorite professor and mentor, had warned him the intern stage of getting a medical degree was the most grueling.
“Out of the textbook and into the fire,” she’d said. Even now, in Charles’ memory, her eyes glowed with a terrifying glint of schadenfreude.

I’m going to say this one happens in the same universe as If You Say the Word, I Could Stay With You
It was meant to be a joke, replacing all of Charles’ regular swim trunks with tiny shorts, but as Erik watches Charles parade around the lido deck in a scrap of navy blue cloth masquerading as a bathing suit, Erik thinks the joke is on him.
It solidifies, however, how very, very lucky Erik is to have married Charles Xavier three days earlier in a downtown courthouse as their friends and family looked on and then showered them with rice and silver confetti. How lucky he is now to be south of the equator and watching his husband grab their drinks from the bar, tall ridiculous things teeming with paper umbrellas and pieces of fruit, and carefully make his way back over to where Erik is lounging by the pool.
