Summary: Mostly they play chess. There are the few nights they sit in front of the fireplace in the east wing drawing room drinking through the scotch collection that Charles’ father had amassed and talk.
Author Notes: Written for the [ profile] erik_charles Summer Fic Exchange and [ profile] ag_sasami's prompt "Other than playing chess, how do Erik and Charles spend their evenings together?". All the thanks to [ profile] lienne for going through and sweeping up all the errors with her grammar and spelling broom.

  • Catch up on the Borgias. If only for Pope Jeremy Irons, how gorgeous the actress who plays Lucrezia is (if you don't think she is at least very pretty, I despair for your soul), and the softcore porn between Lucrezia and the stableboy :9
  • Catch up on Nikita
  • Make another attempt at watching Game of Thrones
  • Finish watching Queen: Day of Our Lives
  • Try to see if I can get into X-Men: First Class fandom despite how creeped out I am by the James McAvoy/Michael Fassbender RPS that seems to come with it. It's times like these when I miss the days when every summer movie fandom didn't come with an RPF fandom
  • Finish at least one of the ebooks I downloaded. So far in the past 3 months I have started and abandoned the following: Kushiel's Dart, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work, and Lolita. Something about how I only start reading on my computer when my internet is out for whatever reason and the way the last page I read can be bookmarked indefinitely makes it so hard for me to finish anything
  • Find my copy of The Unbearable Lightness of Being so I can reread it and stop the random urges to read it
  • Read The Plague to relive some high school philosophy class nostalgia
  • Find my tablet pen so I can redo the background for and finish this piece I've been working on (and putting off working on mostly) for years
  • Sit down and finish sketching out this painting idea I've been thinking about so I can transfer it to a canvas and actually paint it
  • Scan that watercolour I finished in April
  • Figure out how to work this new short haircut I got. I chopped off something like 6 inches off my hair and it's become a completely different beast. I forgot how much my hair turns wavy and becomes a mess of loose curls when it's this short and freshly washed. I keep needing to remind myself not to touch it when I don't straighten it because holy fucking frizz, batman!
  • Master nail polish so I can have all the cute, brightly coloured nails this summer.
