you had me fooled but thats ok cause it was as it should be at the end! I know I was supposed to feel sorry for Bobby but I just can't seem to care (at my age I should be able to do better but hey, I'm here for a reason and it's L/M!!)
Very clever well done x
Great flow. Great structure of paras. That's always been true. Just reading the first line gives me a feeling for the content of the para and the tone. Especially here:
Then I saw how *he* was looking at her, and my blood ran hot. I clenched my fists to try and quell the urges....
But I couldn't do that, then...
She took it seriously, very seriously. The training...
It got harder and harder to spend any time alone with her...
Somehow, this doesn't sound like the Bobby of X2 to me. He didn't seem this mature, this territorial, this angry. But in X3, I was able to see it a bit better. And since the timeline is so close there, I think it works.
I watched her work on Scott, trying to draw him out of his grief. I knew, rationally, that I had no reason at all to feel jealous.
I still did.
The great leaden 'still did' is perfect. And I love the way you slowly creep your way into Bobby's jealousy, so that it starts off as irrational, but you learn that there's a reason for it at the core.
It started to drive me mad, watching her every move, trying to detect what I had done wrong to lose her affections, her love. Though she was still my girl, still told me she loved me, gave me scarf covered kisses, I stopped feeling it. ...Better she hate me now, for a little while, then later, for keeping her with me, when she loved him.
Wow. You made me feel sorry for Bobby! Great job.
Author's Response: I love how you dissect what you like and don't in my fics, because I think it really helps. As for Bobby's maturity .. well it being kinda post X-2, you see a couple glances at the end that show some of it. The way he looks at her when she lands the jet, the look of seriousness he goes for in the Oval office. (Like he's trying to keep eyes front, which sorta helped spring the idea) Well, I admit, not an Iceman Rogue fan, but I feel sorry for Bobby. Because you know he's never gonna be able to be the MAN for Rogue. Heh.
AH!!! That was awesome!
For the first 3/4 I was mumbling things along the lines of "stupid Rogue, can't see what you have god damnnt." But then as I read more, I started to suspect that this wasn't Logan talking, and then finally, as soon as you said it, I was like AHA! ICEMAN YOU PANSY! And proceeded to do a happy dance *g*
Awesome story as per usual.
Author's Response: That was the point, chica. The grumbling.. only to go.. " Oh!" So glad it worked out. YAY!
Gentle and sad, yet inevitable in the best kind of way *g*. I tend to forget in my fics that Bobby's a person too (Lol - poor iccle Iceprick)I forget that he has a character and is not purely to be mocked *g*. You've reminded me how well he can be written - and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Cheers darlin' :o)
Author's Response: I guess I just like to take the characters you don't flesh out and try to make them human :-P Thanks.
Awe, wipes at the tears. This was so good. I almost felt sorry for Bobby (not a big fan sorry). Touching, romantic, loving. He knew beyond a doubt he couldn't hold her.
Author's Response: While I liked Shawn Ashmore, I was very anti the iceman Rogue thing. but I can't blame HIM for it all, now can I? LOL
