The Wolverine & Rogue Fanfiction Archive
Barely Legal Since 2000
I can't even tell you how much I love this story. Just perfection. I love How you tell both Logan and Marie's point of view, and going back and forth from present day falling apart to the past as they fall in love. I love all the seemingly mundane details that add richness and realism to the story (the sugar scrub, the pepper blowing from the air conditioner, the reed sticking to her arm and soft moss growing on the leg of the pier, the gold detail on the outlet cover, etc. etc.). And thank you for giving us a little hope at the end of the story. I don't think I could have handled it otherwise! Well done--you are truly talented.
Damn, damn, damn. This fic is absolutely stunning. I have to admit I was scared to death of reading this fic because of the angst factor. Although I did read the epilogue doctorg wrote for it - full circle a long while back. But I'm so glad I read this - their getting together and relationship before the miscarriage was so sweet, post miscarriage was just a heart wrecker. The ending left me shocked and devastated and totally ready to choke jean out lol (everytime I read a nice-jean fic I come across one like this straight after where I just want her dead grrrr!) well done!
Wow. This really was a rollercoaster. I couldn't sleep and found this fic, Figured I might as well start reading until I was sleepy enough to go back to bed and finish the next morning. It's almost 4:30 AM now and I'm still awake. I quietly celebrated during the happy parts, my stomach did weird things during the sad parts. I loved it very VERY much. Thank you for sharing. <3
This story is more angsty than anything I've ever read. I am sooo depressed. And to be honest the ending hardly makes up to it, i still feel very depressed, maybe only with a very tiny spark of hope inside my aching heart..... xD
Well, where to start?
I am relatively new to Marie and Logan - Fan Fictions. I like the pairing, over all I like Wolverine in the movies (Hugh Jackman - I'd like to do sooo many nasty things with him :D)And the idea of him an Rogie is just very cute.
So, after I read some very good stories of an author called Becca (really, she's a goddess, her homepage is loganandmarie.com) I found myself looking for other good stories and then schwupps! (that's a german term, at the moment I#m lost for the right translation xD) I found this side and - by far more important - your stories!! They are VERY good, even if I find myself a little bit unsure about what to think of all the different ways to create a universe where Logan and Marie can be/ are together. It's all new to me. But after reading some of your work I'm opening up to all different kind of settings and plots and whatever. I definitely keep up to your work because they carry so much emotion and thats the most important thing of a story - at least if you ask me xD
Well, that's it. I did some babbling, I hope it's not that bad I did. And, as you probably know by now, I'm not a native speaker but come from good ol' germany, so I apologize for all the mistakes I made xD
So. Keep on working, you've got one more fan here waiting for updates, new stories and stuff. double thumps up! :D
Author's Response: Lmao!!!! I think this site is just a means to bring together all the people who would like to do nasty things to Hugh Jackman. Thank you so much, I'm honored that you feel that way (about you discovering my writing, not making you depressed....okay, I'm kinda proud of the depressed thing too. Making a reader feel any strong emotion, even hatred, is an accomplishment for a writer). I hope you have a great time exploring this fandom, there are many brilliant minds to be found...I'd suggest you try Aranenumanesse, Jenn, and Terri. All goddesses.
So, I started reading this sometime last night. Picked it up again this afternoon - I had an hour before I had to get to class. The next time I tear my eyes away from the screen, class had started 15 minutes ago. I had to force myself away from the computer, get dressed, and walk through the coldcoldcold!!
... and then I finished reading it in class instead of listening to my last lecture before exams. heh...
I'm rambling now. Such a good story, but so sad. I'm curious what the other ending was, but I'm completely satisfied with the one you wrote.
Also, I had the nagging suspicion from the second chapter (or so) that the reason Marie was pulling away from him so much was because he kept using the word 'baby'. I don't know if that was the case or not, but every time he called her that I winced.
...That's all I think I had to say. I think.
Author's Response: Wow. That's an amazing compliment. Sorry about making you late, but the fact that it did makes me bounce a little...or a lot. Thank you.
As you know, I absolutely adore this story, but as lyrical/haunting/entertaining/true as the characters and plot and angst and imagery and all the rest are, my absolute favorite part is:
His body suggests, 'Tree stump?'
I would give you a Pulitzer and Booker and Mark Twain Prize for that line alone. ;-) Thanks again for leading me to this site, and for sharing your talent with us!
Author's Response: Hahaha!!! Thank you very much. I appreciate that. Writing that line was a lot of fun, not to mention the happy daydreams that followed. >hugs< Happy Thanksgiving!
I have just rearead your beautiful story and I couldn't remember if I told you before how very much I loved it. It was a roller coaster ride, up and down and never knowing where it would end. I truly beieve that someone who wasn't a shipper could read this and care passionately about this couple.
Author's Response: Okay, so...I'm pretty sure I love you...I love getting reviews for old(er) stories. They're such a pleasant ("pleasant" translates to: superfriggin'unbelievablerockin'myworldawesome) surprise. And this one was especially great. Thank you.
Well I made the mistake of reading through the other reviews and now feel like I have nothing to say that dozens of people haven't already put better so I will say only this:
"despite the clenching in my chest and the stinging behind my eyes, I can't stop turning the pages. My heart is breaking as I reach the back cover, as with only the best, most beautiful of novels."
A beautifully crafted sentence that aptly describes how this beautifully written story made me feel.
Author's Response: Wow. After a tough day at work, thats the perfect thing to hear/read. Thanks a billion. You made my day perfect.
Wonderfully done story encompassing the spectrum of Rogan’s newly found love to loss, pain, and heartbreak. I thought the change from the past to present was nicely done. Logan’s homecoming scene when she runs to him…I think it’s one of my favorite interpretations of how it should have gone..I can soo see X1’s Marie like that, that feeling of pure joy she has knowing he’s returned and his response was so him, surprise but so pleased ( you know that it was secretly what he had been hoping for). I thoroughly enjoyed every word that brought them together..and like how uncharacteristically un-smooth and eager he gets with her, especially once the kissing starts...shows how it’s all so real and new for him, nothing practiced.
And onto their present, how they couldn’t share their grief and their own guilt and fear of losing each other invariably led to what they feared…painful to read. I don’t think I’ve ever disliked Jean as much as I did in this one,( though Heal Over’s J. is running a close second)..she literally preyed upon these two..I thought we would get a chance to see Marie and Logan figure out the truth about her, but in the end, she wasn’t worth the effort. When I read the end, I got it…those words were enough..but when I saw your author’s reply in the review section..I admit I was happy to see how you saw what happened to them..that he took her away and they began again, and I wanted to thank you for that..as much as I like to imagine an ending for characters I’ve come to care about and always do when it’s not so clear-cut, since it’s the author’s vision and words who bring them to life for me, it brings a sense of closure to read what the author thinks happens also…that’s just me lol, it’s kinda ironic I’m saying this with fanfic lol and I think yours always end perfectly..just trying (in a convoluted way) to say that I like seeing where you saw them end up too. Thanks so, so, so very much.
Author's Response: Wow, this has been a great day. I got cake, pizza, a easy day at work, and a review from one of my favorite people. The psp Im typing on has a space limit, otherwise Id fill this page with thank yous...Because of the angst level of this fic, I didnt expect a review from you. But Im infinitely happy to find one! I understand/appreciate/love what you said about the ending. Thank you a billion times. Goodnight.
*looks around* Whereīs the cammera?? This CANīT be the end. Itīs not the end, is it? ŽŽ Bad girl! No cookies for you!!
I must to say that I loved how you treated the story. Agh, english isnīt my first language so I will try to explain what I mean, because it was something important for me.
I like how you showed the 2 points of view, but not like most of people do. They didnīt think that same, and they saw things different all the time. I *LOVED* that. Because itīs always like that. No one sees the life like other people, and misunderstandings are an every-day thing.
Your fanfic is sooooo soooo real. Believe me, Iīm such a bitch with fanfics. I want everything to be perfect, and with yours I found that.
Good job!! I will search for more fanfics written by you tomorrow. Itīs 4:30 am in Spain!! xD You seduced me with your fanfic and I couldnīt stop until I finished it.
All my love!
Author's Response: >screams at computer screen< Ohmygod! Thank you! This made my day perfect. I always, always, always hoped somebody would tell me that one day. I cant thank you enough. Goodnight/morning, hope you sleep well, and great job with the English....and ummm...Id suggest Heal Over. People seem to like that one. :~) Thanks! Happy Reading!
More reviews for you because Iīm loving this. I wanted to send you 1 review for chapter, but Iīm sooo into the reading that I donīt even want to stop to review. ahahaha Sorry!
I will just say that Iīm loving this story and how youīre writting it.
Author's Response: >hugs tightly< Im grateful for any review you give. Gracias.
I love misunderstandings like this. And Iīm a bitch, but I love to see them suffer like this. Bring the Angst, I love it!!
Author's Response: Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou! Its great that you like angst, cuz this fic is chocobox full of it.
