You must read If You Liked The Book, You'll Hate The Movie
by paperclipbitch. It was posted yesterday, I stayed up until 5 a.m. reading it (after finding it in the Hank/Alex tag
after midnight, hello my new favorite pairing I didn't like at all before I actually tried reading it), and I still haven't finished it yet because I don't want it to end. Judge ye not by the premise -- non-powered high School AU wherein Erik is the guidance counselor -- because it is wonderful and exactly the story I never knew I wanted. Because everyone in this story is psychologically disturbed to varying degrees, yet likely to live happily ever after (since I haven't finished reading it, I can't promise this last bit). And I'm also sort of jealous because being a silent weirdo in high school did not net me an adorable, shy, geeky, bespectacled boyfriend. Maybe if I'd stabbed someone in the neck things would have gone differently.
Or possibly it's because Hank McCoy didn't go to my school. ANYWAY.
