Summary: "Once, when all the world was green and young, there lived two very different little boys..."
Now these boys have grown, thrust onto a political battlefield filled with long-held grudges and secret motives. Charles has spent the majority of his adult life studying and teaching the finer points of spell casting.
Erik... Erik fights for what is his.
In which there is much discussion and some interrupted exposition, Charles meets a few new and/or unexpected people, and Erik obeys the new touching rule when asked but needs a lot of reminders. He's so challenged. <3
