Summary: Erik waits with careful patience outside Marshall Fury’s office, his shoulders pressed to the metal hull of Shatterdome Anchorage’s corridor. He breathes in, slowly, and then out, and all in all, he doesn’t exactly mean to eavesdrop, he tells himself, it’s just that he’s early, and Marshall Fury isn’t exactly making an effort to be quiet.
Recommendation: I love that Pacific Rim AUs have become like the Hogwarts AUs found in every fandom, but I love it when an author adapts the premise to new canons. Mutant telepaths are essential to the Drift, but I love that other mutants with varying powers are also accounted for. I love the build-up between Charles and Erik, but I was further charmed by the inclusion of Cablepool. I love them. This was just other all great, but I would expect nothing less for manic_intent.
