For the prompt "No divorce on the beach - Charles goes with Erik": Charles may be dead, but that doesn't mean he's gone.

Instead of being injured at the end of First Class, Charles dies, and Erik and the rest of the mutants return to Westchester to heal and re-group. But Erik notices that everyone is acting increasingly strangely, and Erik can't seem to leave.

This is right on target for our Supernatural/Horror week. It's sort-of a canon fix it, if by fixing the ending of First Class you upped the creepy factor by 100%. Lavvyan shows off her talent in painting a situation that is both grimly disturbing and somewhat happy, in so few words. She's turned canon fix-it fics on end, the very definition of 'be careful what you wish for.'

This chilling story is perfect for anyone that likes a good ghost story, and doesn't mind major character deaths or a little mind control in their fics.
