*She nodded thoughtfully, “We need a safe word.”

In a less than manly moment Logan inhaled sharply, promptly choking on his cigar. A few sputtering coughs were all he could manage as he looked over at her with watering eyes.

“The shit that comes out of your mouth kid, I swear…”*



WOW! I don't know what else to say! This was... This felt so real. I have liked this story up so far, but these few lines drew me in to it on a completely new level. Like I was actually there, just few meters away from them. Kind of surreal feeling.

Being loved and giving your love to another can be a risk to take. Will Marie and Logan risk it?

Like I said when rewiewing one of the earlier parts, I wasn't very comfortable with this one at the beginning. But after every update I'm more pleased that I started to read this anyway.

I love the way you describe Logan as a caring father. But why do I have the feeling that there's more going on than you're telling to us?

Can't wait for the next part. Update soon, please?

I don't know if it's even possible to love a fictional character, but I feel more *something* towards your Logan after each new chappie. And this is getting scarier, too, after every new chapter. I can't help wondering when the other shoe drops.
In this one loved especially Logan's reaction when he heard about Marie's pregnancy, and how he immediately thinks about Becky, too.

Usually I don't care much of Jubilee or any other of Marie's friends, but in this one... I loved her. Left Marie and even Wolverine to the background with that last line.

Sometimes the greatest things are said without words.

Duh. Read the first part and rewiewed it, complaining the lack of a sequel. Guess it takes time to get used to this new system...

Now I'm whining after that sequel. Really interested about where you're going with this. Many writers explore with Logan's animalistic, instinctual side, but I haven't seen it done quite this way before. Good work. Keep going.

Author's Response: I\'m thinking about it, what to do next, seeing as they both were saying the right things and she was ready to \'talk\' to him. I can\'t see a smut fest coming next though, it doesn\'t have that feel to it. But thanks for the feedback, Jo.

The X-men have created a monster they can’t defeat.

Now I finally got the hang of this. At least I hope so. I rewiewed a wrong chapter. Duh.

Tell me more is coming soon, please? Can't wait for the next chapter. Love this darker side of you.

Guh. You have created a true monster, my friend. Took me all morning to read this through. I'm not usually a slow reader, but this one... There were parts that made me go back time and time again. In a way I don't like this story, and in a way this is definitely one of the greatest fics I have ever read.

It's quite hard to tell the difference between good guys and bad guys in this one. Line is so thin and blurred. Maybe only bad guys in this one are those who tortured Rogue and other girls when they got captured, maybe they're all bad. Maybe they're not bad, maybe they're all good. Arg! Thinking makes my head hurt. Or is it the flu? Don't know, don't care...

Keep up the good work! :)

Author's Response: Thanks for the feedback. It kinda made me think to ya know. I mean it\'s hard when you\'re in a situation like that to really pick am I good or bad. Deep down I think there are still issues that they have to work out. Still, if my story made you think then that\'s a good thing. I\'m really glad that you managed to get something out of this. Thanks again. It\'s very much appreciated.

Didn't want to, but I just had to mark this to my favorites. This is too sad to be left behind, too sad to be read again, even if there's a glimmer of hope at the end.
Brilliant.

Author's Response: Thank you :o) I\'m totally flattered that you marked it as a fave - Yay! *hugs*

I remember reading this for some time ago. Read it again. Just had to. This is one of those stories that leave me feeling angsty, jittery, and at the same time hopeful. Good way to jumpstart my clogged up story vein.

I guess I'm a pessimist by nature, because first time I read this I cried, thinking she would have to go through the same hell over and over again. Then I started thinking what if that all had been only inside of her head. What if there had been no evil intentions and Logan had shaved his head really because he had gotten hot.

Uh... Don't really like the idea of a bald Logan... at least not if it's for the reason Marie imagined it to be.

This is one of the best fics I have read.

Author's Response: Ya know, I kind of don\'t like the bald Logan either, but...well, my Logan in my head is always Hugh Jackman and he doesn\'t look half bad with a buzz cut, so it wasn\'t too hard to think about! ;) And thanks for such a lovely review - it is very much appreciated.

The course of true love...it never did run smooth. Rogue's inner Marie is causing havoc... or was it the other way round?

Nature documentary, Logan? I always thought he would be little more creative... But what an image this one left me with! Wow! *starts writing, trying to avoid drooling on the keyboard* :)

Dear God. Put me out of my misery now. This managed to remind me of the most awkward moment of my life. Happened like ten years ago, and I'm still blushing. Not going in to details, but... Involves a first date with a guy, guy thinking something could actually happen and me stumbling out of the situation quite gracelessly.
Consider this fic as a master piece. That particular memory was buried so deep that only a miracle like this could have jarred it on the loose. :)

Author's Response: LoL poor Ara, *hugs* :o) If it makes you feel any better - most of Marie\'s stumblings are taken from personal experience...LoL - apart from the threesome thing - don\'t read into that! *g* I\'m one of those people who means to say one thing, and something completely different comes out! So, believe me when I say, I know how you feel *g*

Hip to hip? Christ! Where do you come up with those? I'm laughing, and it's not a very good thing considering that my hubby and my kid are trying to sleep!
Definitely a move I should try when we have first-aid in school... Not! Don't want to give my classmates any ideas, they think I'm perverted already... :)

Author's Response: Yeah that\'s not one to try in school LoL! Ok, now I have images of first aid resuscitation dolls... and Logan... and *sniggers* it\'s not pretty. LMAO!

GRWOWL!!! *cough* This is good.

Author's Response: LMAO - sorry! But seriously...LMAO! Yeah that first date feeling - it\'s the worst and the best all at once *g*

This is one of those stories that get stuck on me. Short and cute, but not sugary goop. Just cute, with just enough Wolverine in the mix to keep the balance. One of my favorites.

Uh... Weren't the skittles those small crunchy candies filled with chocolate? Never mind...

I like this kind of fics. Not everything needs to be said in order to understand the story. Many times the less you say, the better the story is.


Author's Response: the small crunchy things filled with chocolate are m\'n\'ms (or smarties.) and thanks. I was trying to write it that way. who knows, i might even add more to this #ahem# story.

*sniff, sniff* I need a hankie. Maybe a blankie and my teddy, too... Some fics give me physical symptoms. Eyes watering, chest aching and nose running. This definitely belongs to that group of fics. Doesn't matter that the story is kind of positive in nature, there's something awfully sad lurking under the surface.

No crap. Few misspelled words, but apart from that this was great. Was this the one you told me about earlier? This was beautiful. Evanescence is one of my favorites, and I have tried to write L/R songfic about their songs several times. For some reason it doesn't work with me, but you made it. Wow!

Not big on writing rewiews, but this one I really have to give a try.

This brings back memories to me from so many books and movies I have seen and read, that I don't even try to list them all to here. Yet this is something completely new, and I simply love this fic. I'm really expecting next installments, and I'm hoping you won't take too long with updates. It's interesting to see how this will turn up, since we have gotten already one major twist, from Xavier's world of luxury and cloak and daggers to Logan's rugged wilderness. And still there's this comfortable peacefulness that makes this easy to read. More! Please! :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much for telling me what you think, I\'ve read your work and you always keep me coming back for more. I\'m glad your enjoying it and hopefully we\'ll be getting to grips with Xavier and his world soon, just when the two of them are ready to come *home*. But with these two you never quite know when that will be... Jo.

Was this counterpart for "The Deal"? because if it was, I'm scared. This whole piece was well written, and I was very comfortable with reading this up until the end. Until Scott's last thought. If this really was continuation to "The Deal", please, don't leave it here. Please. I'm very, very scared. That's a good thing, by the way. Only few fics manage to wrangle this strong reaction out of me.

Author's Response: thanks so much for the feedback - yes it was a counterpart to the Deal and I\'m debating writing another to go with it. You know just to see what everyone\'s gonna do when they realize that Logan\'s not about to share Marie...with anyone!

She should be dead, but then again, so should he.

In a way I don't like this kind of fics. Fics where they're with other people. But I like your style, and I¨'m waiting next installments with great curiosity. Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: I know what you mean, but though she might not give in to Logan anytime soon, we all know there\'s only one guy for Marie! ;-)
