The Wolverine & Rogue Fanfiction Archive
Barely Legal Since 2000
Ohhhh, this is deliciously heartbreaking! It is always touching to the the normally gruff and growly Logan go all tender for his Marie. This has me asking SO many questions, though. Who did see absorb? Why is she so panicked? I hope the author returns to this story one day. It has the making of a great fic!
"He tries to use a gentle voice when he calls her name, ignoring the part of his mind that’s all too ready to remind him that he’s never done anything gently. Inching closer to her, incrementally, with a patience that he doesn’t feel."
I melted when I read that. Theres something so yummy about Logan struggling to control the animal, the Wolverine, within, especially when its for the sake of Marie. Would you hate me if I begged for more? Cuz reading this has left me itching to know what comes before OR after!
Author's Response: Aww thanks! Hope you didn't make too much of a mess when you melted ;) While I do have a tiny baby bunny munching on my leg with this fic, I'm currently tackling another giant rabid monster bunny that demanded a multi-chapter story. So maybe after that I'll come back to this. Thanks!
Wow, I can't believe I missed reading this earlier. I absolutely loved it. I'm going to have to open it in another window to quote all the parts I love, but these in particular got me:
"she’s up on coltish legs, tangled in the length of her cloak."
"he rises as slowly as any man who knows too well how things work in the wild"
"He’s damned sure his reinforced frame is going to crack with it."
Just great. I can't wait to read the rest of it!
Author's Response: Oh gosh you just did my most favorite thing ever: QUOTING. I dunno, it just makes me bounce & squee a bit when reviewers quote things. I love, love, love knowing which lines stood out to people. Right now I don't think I'm going to continue this. I can sort of see a cloudy impression of where I could take it, but there's another monster that I'm working on. It's really good to know that the interest is there in case I do decide to uncheck the "finished" box. Thanks so much for reading, rating, and reviewing! The *new* 3 Rs!
This was......amazing! I could *feel* the cold, the branches, his heart aching for her, her fear and pain..."clear images"?? Are you kidding??
Author's Response: Yay! Oh I'm so glad you could really picture the imagery. While the focus is All Rogan, All The Time - I wanted to change it up & really put out some descriptive visuals. Thanks for reading and reviewing!!
Don't know what it says about me, but my favorite fics are those with Logan chasing Marie. This is no exception. Abs, this was great. More than great. Fantabulobrilliantcoolawesomness. (Got really excited when my spellcheck took a minute to underline that one. Thought Webster had finally come around.)
So many writers mention how harmful absorbing others is to her sanity, but few actually show it. I love this version. So realistic. God, I'm glad you started hitting that submit button.
....Kinda wanna agree with notmyself up there. This definitely has the feel of a first chapter....
Author's Response: Hey, who wouldn't want to be chased by Logan. It just says you're as crazy as the rest of us, is all. No worries. Just take the Rogan pills they give you and stare at The Chest like the rest of us. This review was a fantabulous (that one didn't get underlined! Maybe Webster is catching on!) way to wake up. Yeah the bug for continuing this has been planted & in my mind it's part of a larger story, but I'm not sure how to tell it quite yet. There's something similar on the horizon, but I'll email you with the details/problems/crippling neuroses attached to it. Feel free to ignore it.
Crystal clear, hon. God love him for being the one to take this on, to be her champion even when it means fighting not only her demons, but his own as well. Excellent. --Wendie
Author's Response: Crystal clear? Really? Muchas gracias! Even though it's really short I was hoping I could get the details out there and really lay out a good scene. You've got a point - about him chasing her demons while fighting his own. Once again you put another layer of meaning that wasn't intentional & I could just send you your own Logan with nothin' but a strategically placed bow & a Santa hat. You might have to provide the Canadian beer - Logans need to be watered regularly - and you should probably stock up on cigars too - Logans are prone to orneriness if not smoking. Thank you for again providing me with a lovely review!
I like it. It could be a really wonderful chapter into a truly awesome full length fic. I love stories that start in action. It's the perfect amount of sad and desperate. I could practically feel the biting air and the stinging brush marks. And I could very nearly make out the trembling and tears as though I was seeing it, not reading it. Thank you, yet again. You are fast becoming a favorite addiction. Never, never stop.
Author's Response: Oh thank you, thank you, thank you. You have no idea how thrilled I am that you were able to *see* those things. I tried to make this more about description than exposition if that makes sense. In my mind this scene was a part of something larger, but I don't have the words for it or the ending point....yet. I won't rule out continuing it in the future. rnrnOh no, addiction? Oh man, now I feel *responsible*. You're not going to go through withdrawals or anything? Guess, I have to keep writing so you can get your fix, huh? I'm workin' on it.
so, now i'm curious as to who she absorbed.
I love this story. Even though it is short, it packs a big punch.
Author's Response: I left that open to interpretation. Could be Carol or just some random mutant, whatever works for your imagination. I just wanted to focus on the instability, the idea that regardless of who she absorbs it's still a crapshoot as to whether she's going to come out of it in one piece or not. Thank you for reviewing, it's made me smile for the past few days :)
Were you able to get a clear image of the scene? – absolutely, and what a beautiful scene it was. Tugging at the heart strings harder and harder as you read. Wonderfully described and written. Very few words yet nothing else required and although usually a fan of the much longer fic you seem to have me loving the much shorter ones now too.
Really enjoyed this one - very well done x
Author's Response: Ah, I'm making you a convert to the short fics, eh? It's okay, I won't tell anyone ;) To be perfectly honest, I'm not entirely sure I have it in me for a longer, chapter filled fic, even though that bunny is currently staring at me & sharpening it's fangs...rnrnThank you for your consistently thoughtful reviews. This definitely brightened up my weekend!
