X Marks the Spot is a Charles/Erik AU by thehoyden. It is a fusion with Indiana Jones.

The story was podficced by k_town in August 2012.[1]


The year is 1962, and Charles Xavier is a professor of archaeology who knows how his students feel, whether he wants to or not. He spends his spare time researching a mythical artifact, but he knows better than anyone that X never, ever marks the spot.

In this story Charles and Erik hunt for the Tesseract from the Captain America movie.

Recs and Reviews

  • "Firstly, I love Indiana Jones, so of course I *had* to read this. Secondly, I was so painfully aware of the scroll bar the whole time I was reading it because I desperately did not want this to end and it's very rare for me to ever feel that way about a story. This was so much fun - it's what I consider a romp and I *love* a good romp. I simply adore Charles and Erik in this and the actual adventure and search for the relic was utterly awesome, especially how it tied into mutant powers. Really - what a fun fic."[2]
  • "Forced bed sharing! Possessiveness! I loved this so hard."[3]
  • "I'mma keep reccing this until you read it okay BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME. Indiana Jones fusion fic, it makes so much more sense than you think it possibly could."[4]
