Summary: This began as a short ficlet written for this kink meme prompt: “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.’ – Heraclitus Post-X3 Charles, instead of transferring his consciousness to the coma guy, finds his mind back in the body of his younger self, right after Shaw’s attack on the CIA compound, on their way to the mansion.
Recommendation: Eerily similar to the new movie only it’s Charles who goes back. Probably would have been a little more straightforward all things considered.
