Author's Response: Thanks so much! I was honestly feeling a little like the story had kinda sucked since people have mostly ignored it, so I am really very grateful for your insightful and thoughtful review! Thanks, especially, for answering my question about whether Logan seemed OOC with all his talk at the end. (And for telling me your favorite line -- I love it when people tell me their favorite lines, cuz it's usually a line I wouldn't have thought of as anyone's favorite, so it makes me look at it in a new light). I'm putting the final touches on a sister-shot to my "Cup of Coffee" one-shot. (sister-shot = not a follow-up or prequel, but the same exact chain of events, as told from Logan's pov). And I was inspired by Adele's "All I Ask" to write something, but I'm a little stuck, because by its nature, it has to have some smut in it, and I'm not used to writing that...so, we'll see...lolrnrnIf you'd like to take a look at the sister-shot to Cup of Coffee, I'd love a second pair of eyes on it. rnrnAnyway, thanks! :)
I suspect that a lot of people thought it was a great story, but didn't leave a review; I am guilty of that myself! There are a handful of faithful commenters on this site, so thank goodness for those people. I absolutely love Cup of Coffee; I just checked and I can't believe I didn't leave a review. *hangs head in shame* I always mean to, but then I get distracted and forget to go back to actually write the review.
By the way, I totally squeed when I read that you are writing a sister-shot to Cup of Coffee! I love companion pieces that tell the story from both POVs, and I can't wait to read Logan's take. I would love to take a look at that for you! PM-ing you next!
I've been meaning to comment on this story since your first posted; I was seriously excited to see another piece from you.
I really loved this story! You have a way of writing that is very compelling to read. I loved your characterization of Logan and Rogue, and the way you seamlessly mixed comicverse, movieverse, and your own idea of what happened after. I really liked the way you sorted out their complex feelings so skillfully without it being too much, if that makes sense. And I don't think it was OOC for Logan to talk that much. He seems like the type who doesn't talk a lot, unless he has something to say, and then he says it well. He had been holding things in all that time, and this was one of those life changing moments, so it was time to make Rogue understand.
There were so many great lines in this story, but my favorite is:
“Marie,” he called, his voice steady and low and warm. “Look at me.” When she looked up at him, he was still and unmoved, but she could almost see the effort it was taking him to remain so. Logan was never this still except when he was measuring – waiting -- for the right moment to pounce. He waited until her gaze was on him, until she was fully with him, not running through thoughts in her own head, but there, connected. Once she did, he spoke. “You’re mine.”
I seriously got tingles when he said that. :)
I don't think you needed a beta; this story was very well done. But if you ever need to run something by someone, feel free to contact me.
Awesome work--hope to see more from you again soon!
I really, really enjoyed this. I wasn't familiar with this comic storyline and after doing a little internet reading about it came back to finish your story. Excellent job!
Author's Response: I appreciate it! :)
Very cool (and sweet) fic. I loved Logan saying he knew Marie was his by the way she smelled. Definitely one of the many highlights!!
Author's Response: Squee, really? You liked that bit? It was so obvious to me when I put it in, but then I doubted myself, so thanks for letting me know! :)
