    Summary

    Erik should have known to call ahead to the Chinese restaurant--it's Christmas Eve and he lives in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood, after all. But before he can go home to mourn the loss of another one of his mother's yearly traditions, he's accosted by a teenage girl with a strange proposition--that he should stay and have dinner with her and her mother, instead.

    Summary

    Magneto dies on a Wednesday afternoon. He's come to terms with what he's been and what he's done, but as he follows his guide through the underworld towards his final destination, he's forced to confront the figures of his past and answer the question they all have for him: if he could do it all again, would he do things differently? And even if he would, does he have it in him to trust Charles Xavier enough to get the second chance he's being offered?

    Summary

    The giant house off the back road appeared to be the perfect place for Erik to pull over and wait out the storm, but the dark, untouched rooms inside seem to multiply as he wanders through them and the air is heavy with dread.

    He doesn't believe in ghosts, but something wants him to leave just as strongly as something else wants him to stay.

    Summary

    Many years ago, Charles told him that he would always be welcome at the mansion. Erik's not sure he believes that, but this isn't the mansion, and it wasn't Charles who invited him here--it was Ororo.

    Summary

    It's out of character for Erik to stop and give a ride to a stranger on a lonely road, but the man is strikingly attractive and Erik doesn't have anywhere else to be. It's not a bother--at least not until the boxes of odd equipment start coming out at the house in the middle of nowhere that sets Erik's teeth on edge. At least not until the closest motel is long-shuttered and Erik finds himself driving back to the looming house in the middle of the night.

    It's possible Erik is starting to wish he had driven right past...
