'I want to let my skin feed.'....WHAT a line...if that doesn't clearly illustrate just where poor Rogue is at, I don't think anything will. She's like an addict, and poor Logan, clueless Logan, doesn't realize he's her unwilling dealer.

'I want to let my skin feed.' that short line summed up the depth of her need for me, not just wanting or craving but literally starving. So much said in so few words.

Wish I could be as in-depth, knowledgeable and eloquent as gamma meta - but I can't, so you'll just have to settle with I loved it!

well done x

Every time I read your fics, I'm blown away by the sensuality of sound and sound symmetry. They're perfectly constructed, like a present wrapped with even seams, no wrinkles, and a bow.

The structure:
God, I want to touch him...
But I don't...
...Is it any wonder I wear gloves?
He only sees a girl.

Those are the steps, as Rogue begins with her inner life, desire, and then gradually removes herself at every step until we learn what she's thought of through another's eyes. And there are two falls - the first when Rogue admits she'll never act on her desires, and the second when she acknowledges that the small touches she lives on, that mean so much to her, are not the same for Logan. So the 'sharp rush' at the third step buoys you up a little, and then you fall again, at the very end, disappointed, sweet angst. It feels like a rush and then the fall: addict. Love that structure mirrors the idea.

And then the sounds of the words you use - they're so specific in meaning and image, and like Laenwyn's, they're so round in sound they can easily become a chant. Usually, I find authors can keep this up for a short time, but then there are jarring moments in a place of transition. But your fics never have those. Smooth everywhere.

I'll be in danger of quoting the whole fic, so here is my favorite line: That hedonistic slip slide of power. The violation...I want to feel that rage of life. *shivers* You have an enviable facility with language.

I hope that your Rogue acts on her desires someday. It'll be an explosion, if this is any judge. Logan won't know what hit him. ;)

Great fic. So excited you're writing again!

Author's Response: I love you for your fb *g*. I love even more that you noticed the structure mirrors the idea. Thank you *g*. That's what I was trying to achieve throughout with the pacing. Sometimes I enjoy playing more with the ryhthm and sounds of the words than the words themselves... I blame my childhood discovery of the Jabberwocky for that! And yeah, I'm a bit slow at it... but I'm writing again - woo!

Short but right to the point, Marie's need and Logan's general ignorance of it all, achy, angsty and great to read.

Author's Response: Ahhh... but is it his general ignorance, or does she just hide it too well...? (yeah, even I don't know the answer!) Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for the fb *g*
