Rating: Teen [PG]
Word Count: 5,710
Summary: Except that this has happened before, he thinks with a start, and something in his throat closes up as he revolves on the spot, already knowing what he’s going to see. Charles’ back is arching as he falls, his eyes wide, and the crumpled bullet falls to the sand beside him like a calling card. X-Men: First Class Groundhog Day!AU, written for a genius prompt at 1stclass_kink.
Recommendation: I have a weakness for Groundhog Day!AUs, and this one does not disappoint. It takes him a while but eventually, Erik comes to understand what was really going on that day on the beach and what Charles was trying to tell him. Finally.
