Drawn for xmenreversebang round 3

Story: the question in the quest (LJ) by afrocurl (Alternate AO3 Post)

A/N: I'm very aware that I haven't been very active in the fandom lately. My final year in college, the medical school application process, my new job as a research associate, as well as my re-awakened obsession with gaming has left me with very little time to send on fandomy things. However! I'm so glad I found the time to at least participate in this round of X-men Reverse Bang. The idea for this XMRB came from this conversation over on tumblr, which I then turned to drawing for a colour palette prompt! And before I get to the actual art, a HUGE thanks to my author, Roz, for working with me to bring my art prompt to life. And thank you for your patience and understanding while I spent the majority of the time being difficult to reach and etc.

I should also note that I sadly did not get to draw any new pictures of this story since the two I drew for the claims post. Hopely soon, I'll be able to get around to drawing some illustrations for the wonderful story Roz has written for me, so please be on the lookout for them. Until then, without further ado, here are my art pieces for XMRB round 3!

Art/Fic Title: don't break the spell (I don't want to say goodbye)
X-Men Verse:  XMFC
Characters/Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: G
Inspiration: Kaori Yuki's take on "Sleeping Beauty" in the manga Ludwig Kakumei
A/N: For xmen_tales. I haven't finished the fic just yet, so as a placeholder, here is the playlist I put together for writing the fic along with cover art (completely drawn by hand. Flowers, how fun. Orz.) The songs match up with the plot of the fic. Thanks so much to everyone in the #xmentales chat for all the encouragement to help me get this bit of art done, as well as a few of their music suggestions! <3 I'll be including more notes and thank yous when I actually post the fic!

Story (AO3, fic + art): The Boy with the Blue Eyes by nekosmuse 

A/N: Neko is a wonderful, wonderful person, and I had so much fun working on this 'verse with her. When I first signed up for XMRB, I had no clue what to prompt. Then came the prompts post and her prompt instantly kicked some inspiration into me. The next thing I knew, I had five pieces mostly done and ready for claims (the prompt). After claims and a bumpy start, Neko came along to the rescue and became my pinch hit author. I was so excited to work with her and I loved the ideas we were tossing back and forth with each other. I've never collaborated with an author before, and it was just amazing. If it wasn't for Neko, and the fabulous story she created, I wouldn't have been able to create the staggering number of pieces I have here for everyone to see. So, thank you so much for being such a great person to work with and such an inspiration! (And thank you for putting up with all my squeeing and keysmashing ;])

Much thanks also to my go-to artist buddy a_systole and everyone in the xmrb_support chat for cheering me on and giving me additional pairs of eyes to check my work! Your encouragement definitely helped me finish all these pieces!

Without further ado, here are my offerings for XMRB! (Warning: spoilers ahead!)

For some reason I found myself working on chapter 7 instead of chapter 5 like I was supposed to, and now the story is getting a lot more complicated than I first planned...
There's a lot of talking in this chapter, and not much else, sorry. :/
