Summary: Charles sees the events of the missile crisis and subsequent weeks when he uses Cerebro to touch the mind of a mutant with the power to see the near future. When he wakes up he is determined that he will not allow them to happen and he will not lose the people he loves.
Author's Notes: Loved the movie, thought it was absolutely brilliant and this started out as a one scene PWP about the power dynamic between Charles and Erik. However, then I wondered what Charles would do given a second chance where he had seen all his faults and Erik's starkly laid out and was then returned to before all the bad happened. This is what happened when I started typing. Thanks to Soph for the beta.
