The Wolverine & Rogue Fanfiction Archive
Barely Legal Since 2000
I'm reviewing this story on 2 sites in hopes that I can help jump start your muse again. Please come back to this story. It's so unfair leaving Rogue with these nightmares ;-)
I'm ready to see Jean get her punishment and see how Logan will coax Rogue to love him again. Is there anything we can do to help?
Author's Response: I have seen your reviews on both sites and I assure you that I know how unfairly Rogue is being treated, by me and Jean. The truth is I wrote myself into a corner, sort of, and I've been too wrapped up in my real life to put in the necessary time to write my way back out of it. I deeply appreciate your offer to help. I'm terrible at asking for help, but for Rogue and Logan's sakes, I am swallowing my pride and saying, 'HELP!' Any ideas you have for where to go from here would be welcome. You can email me through the 'contact' link on my author page. I look forward to hearing from you and with any luck we can get this puppy wrapped up sooner rather than later. Thanks again for still caring and for taking the time to let me know that you do. -- Wendie
Come on Moviemom! Put us out of our misery and wrap this puppy up!!
Author's Response: Honestly, P-I-C, I would like nothing more than to put me out of my own misery and blast my writer's block to smithereens. I know that sounds like such a cliche, but I can't dredge up plot details or dialogue to save my life. I'm going to give myself one more week and then I'm seriously considering sending an S.O.S. out to all my fellow writers and begging you for suggestions, bits of dialogue, ANYTHING!!! to kick the muse in the...uh, derriere...and get her cooperating again. Really. Seriously. Give me til next Sunday and if you haven't seen any new posts, feel free to bombard me with any ideas you have. I think my email can be accessed through my profile page here, or you could send me a private message on here as well. If anything hits home, I'll run with it and give you full credit - and a lifetime supply of virtual red velvet cheesecake - via the story notes. Thank you so much for still caring about this story after all this time. I will finish it, I promise. -- Wendie
Since Rose is too "round the bush" to just come out and say it, I will...
Pwease can we has a sexy shmexy update *gets on the ground and grovels* oh pretty pwease with a nekie Hugh Jackman on top???
Author's Response: Hey DD, yes, you may have an update, but 'sexy shmexy' may have to wait a bit. I'm hard at work on Ch. 5 and hope to have it ready by this weekend, but my kids are out of school this week (spring break) and I have a new job that sucks up a good bit of my writing time as well, so it may be early next week before I can get it done. Keeping in mind how Rogue currently feels about Logan, we've got a chapter or two to go before things turn around enough to allow for 'sexy shmexy', but it will happen, I swear! Thanks for hanging in there with me... --Wendie
*whistling cheerily*....Oh what a beeaauuuutiful moOORRRning, oh what--Oh, hey Wendie!! Fancy seeing you here! You come around these parts often?...Me? Oh, you know. I was just hanging out. Not trying to nag anyone about a glorious yet incomplete fic or anything...I'm sorry, what was that? Tap...Tapping my foot? Hey! So it is. That's just...you know...cuz I heard music. You can't hear it? Well, they probably just turned it off. Why am I still tapping my foot? Just...just because. For funsies.
Looking at my watch? I did no such thing!! I learned my lesson; I know criticizing a writer's tardiness will not make an update come any faster. And...and if I did, it was only because...because I'm late for an appointment. Yeah. Yeah.
Author's Response: So, I'm guessing it's just a coinkydink that the song you just happened to be singing this morning is one immortalized by the golden-throated, Curly-haired Hugh Jackman, right? It couldn't be yet another layer of subtle hinting on your part that perhaps a story of mine involving a character that looks just like the Sexiest Man Alive needs an update sooner rather than later, now could it? Nah, of course not! I'm ashamed of myself for even thinking such a thing about you. But if you were that kind of person--which you're not--you might be interested to know that funny, subtle-like-an-axe hints have been known to influence which of the unfinished projects I might find time for this weekend, assuming my real life allows me any spare time at all for writing. But it really doesn't matter, 'cuz, like I said, you're just not like that at all. Right? Oh, and I hope you didn't miss anything important being late for that appointment...*nudge, nudge, wink, wink* --Wendie
>glares< I'm not speaking to you. I'm not going to tell you that I went ape$hit when I received the update notification for this, or bounced a circuit around the living room. I'm not saying that this was worth the wait (and what a wait it was) and your skill has increased exponentially. I'm not going to comment on brutally honest and wonderfully handled The Scene was, or how nearly every line of which is worth quoting. Or how intriguing the fact that you made his dialogue sound so unlike him when it *wasn't* him, and that the voice of the real Logan is so spot-on. Not gonna say it.
You, sir, are getting the silent treatment. >gives schoolgirl *hmmph*<
Author's Response: Oh, dearest Rose, if this is the silent treatment, then feel free to clam up forever and ever. God knows I deserve it for taking-oh, lord, is it really?--eight months between chapters. I read this on my phone while sitting in my car waiting to pick my daughter up from school. I was getting strange looks from children as they passed me. Apparently, a 40-something woman can't sit in her own car and grin from ear to ear like the village idiot without drawing undue attention to herself. I must have read this a dozen times and every time I am more thrilled that Logan's dialogue in The Scene worked for you. Scenes like that are SO difficult--I just hate making him treat Rogue like that--so, I actually think the fact that it didn't sound like him was because I had to do something to allow myself to even type the damn words -- although at the time I had no idea that my cruise down that river in Egypt would actually turn out as well as it did...Anyway, THANK YOU! --Wendie
I was holding off on reading this until it was finished by my curiosity got the better of me...Im so hoping you have not abandoned this one as I cannot wait to read the rest!!
Author's Response: Hey DD -- As you can see, I have not abandoned this, but the muse cut out on me for a while. She's back now and I think we're finally on the same wavelength, so updates should be considerably quicker. Thanks so much to your curiosity for dragging you into this unfinished tale and to you for letting me know you liked it.--Wendie
Might be going crazy-would love to see an update of this!! >smiles apologetically
Author's Response: I know just what you mean. I'm going crazy, too, trying to get this one right and I'm not having much luck. I am bound and determined to get it posted before I leave for vacation on June 5, but I've also come down with pneumonia and bronchitis in the meanwhile. I can't decide which makes me feel worse, the lung troubles or the writer's block, but they're both kickin' my ass! I kind of painted myself into a corner and am slowly working my way out. Hopefully, I'll be able to concentrate and get lots done while my kids are in school over the next few days. I swear, I write some every day, even if it's only a sentence or two. It's comin', I promise! --Wendie
Yay, Marie finally makes an appearance :)...the poor thing looks to be in a pretty bad state..glad there's one un-Jean-corrupted guy (I think) who can comfort her till Logan gets things straightend out. I have a horrible suspicion as to what Jean may have had done to Marie (based on the story warning/darkness stuff) so she deserves whatever end she gets. Thanks for giving insight into Logan's thinking regarding his continued dalliances with Jean.....though, I gotta say, I'm not quite over being upset with him yet lol...I can see this Logan overlooking Jean's skankiness/selfishness while he continues to have a good time...but..with these new revelations I'm hoping he wouldn't want to touch her with a 10 foot pole. Thanks for the update and am eagerly waiting for more :D
Author's Response: Thank you! And you are right, Logan has had about all he can take when it comes to having sex with Jean...but would any price be too high if it meant keeping Rogue safe? We'll have to wait and see...I expect Chapter 4 to take a while to get right, so look for it sometime late next week. --Wendie
i gave up on asking ppl to help me move back in 2006 when my ex-boyfriend asked me to help him move and it was probably one of the most horrible experiences ever...especially since i had moved just 2 months before and HIRED MOVERS and he made 2X as much as me and was too cheap to do the same, so me and some other ppl got conscripted into the worst 14 hours of my life.
The professional movers are coming tomorrow to move all my furniture, I've been moving boxes or smaller stuff and clothes for the last month, gonna leave the real pain in the butt stuff to the burly men while i stand there and point where it goes LOL!
As for the Rogan pics, I've seen that one from the Evolution guy before, I looooooove his artwork and that Evo depiction is what I based "Don't Let Me Catch You" on...i love how they look and sound in that show and wanted that in my story.
something about "broken nose Logan" i just adore.
Great story..interesting concept with lots of layers..I like that we’re getting more background as to why Logan is stuck in the situation he’s in..and I’m very curious to find out what Jean did to Rogue.
It’s totally a testament to your talent as a writer that I can say the following..not only am I mad at this Logan, I’m kinda disgusted with him too (hate to write it- but I do have my reasons, lol). I get why he initially hooked up with Jean-the attraction, unwillingness to admit his feelings for Rogue/age issue etc, and I know why he continues to do so..it’s just..does he have to get so into it and enjoy it too? She hurt Marie (probably deliberately?) in some way..that should be the deal breaker with Jean, and yes he’s just waiting to take her down but..she still gets him hot and bothered, and apparently even thinking about their past hook-ups makes him want her again..yuck. Or, maybe I’m mad at the Wolverine for being such a horn dog LOL..but, Marie’s his girl and no amount of good sex should make up for it.
I’m sooo hoping that once we get more L/M interaction and they start getting together (I hope :)) that he just doesn’t jump from Jean’s bed to hers..she needs to make him wait and suffer lol. I mean, if the roles were reversed and Rogue was getting it on with some guy regularly only a few doors down from Logan, and it was all to save him but she was still totally enjoying it..I think there would be a pretty PO’d Wolverine. That said..you know I don’t want him to wait all thaaat long..cuz, if hate sex with Jean is this good..I’m thinking L/M will be tons hotter :D..
About Jean—what happened to Scott sounds fishy..I’m wondering if Jean had something to do with it. For me, Jean’s always just been a secondary character.I vaguely remember her in the cartoons, never read the comics, thought the Jean/Logan “relationship” in the movies was more forced than anything, and agree with you about their lack of chem., so any rendition is okay with me.
Okay, so that's my 2c worth.sorry to have made it so long but couldn't help it..I read it, had to go out and was thinking about it for a long time and wrote the review when I came back. Thank you so much for sharing this terrific story..I’m so on board and can’t wait to see what happens.
Author's Response: Hey likelandm, you win the 'meaty' review award, hands down! You are a person after my own heart; I can't keep from running my fingers to the bone when I have something to say either. 'Brevity' is a foreign concept to me. Anyway, yes, it's true that Logan can still appreciate great sex regardless of who it's with. I think they call that 'compartmentalizing' and as I understand it, most men practice it regularly, so Logan is really just 'being a guy' or a 'horn dog' whichever you prefer. This, however, is not to say that he won't one day come to understand the difference between having sex and making love. You must also remember that he has yet to lay a hand on Rogue in a sexual way. Could be he just doesn't know what he's been missing! rnrnAs for the jump straight from one bed to the other. Ain't gonna happen. Logan and Marie will eventually wind up in bed together--what other kind of happy ending could there be?--but there is much yet to overcome for both of them. In Chapter 3, we will get some of Rogue's perspective on what's happening, but it will be colored by the harmful effects of Jean's skullduggery, so her view cannot be trusted to be entirely fair. The method of Jean's evil deed will be known in Ch. 3, but the details will probably not be revealed until Ch. 4. I know; I'm a rat fink. But, like Logan, I have a plan and a timetable--or rather a story outline--and, for once, I'm sticking to it!rnrnI thought about making Jean the culprit in Scott's death, but then changed my mind. Other than perhaps being a bit complacent and not 'brain scanning' the minds waiting for them at the FoH base to determine their true intentions, Jean was as surprised as the rest of them that the place was not what they expected. Truth is, I had to get rid of Scott to make this story work, so I tried to think of a fairly plausible way for a powerful X-Man such as Cyclops to be taken out.rnrnFor your outstanding and lengthy review, I will give you one 'teaser' to ponder. Who created the collage of Scott's photos and why? If you read Chapter 2 carefully, you can probably figure it out pretty easily. Once you do, keep yours eyes open for that person to enter the intrigue as well. As I said in one of my other replies to a review, Logan ain't the only one who wants to see Jean punished for her multitude of sins.rnrnThanks so much--again and again and again and again...you get the idea... --Wendie
Oh dear lord! I liked this even more than your dialouge-fic! Good job! I was surprised to see Bobby with Jean-not many writers do that. And omfg, she's such a slut! There are support groups for that kind of skankiness. But it was well written, even if that Logan/Jean sex makes me gag. I can't wait to see where this is going.
Author's Response: Thank you, you marvelous writer, you! I so know what you mean about the Logan/Jean smut. As I said in another response, my only comfort is knowing that it's JUST sex for sex sake, if you know what I mean. However, as I write Chapter 2, I'm finding out that Wolvie has a talent for compartmentalizing when it comes to his baser needs, so apparently, it doesn't trip his gag reflex like it does ours! But in terms of his heart, well, it turns out it's totally free of Jean's fingerprints and it always was. I know where the story is going and have a rough map of the road I intend to take to get there, but some of the scenery along the way is surprising even me, so I'm just as anxious as you are to see how it all turns out! Thank you again for this review *big, big hugs*. To be able to entertain and excite someone whose writing I admire as much as yours is a true blessing. --Wendie
I think this is a great story, I think it's interesting that Logan seems to truly hate Jean and deeply loves Rogue so that he'd put himself in the middle to protect her. I really like this and I'm dying to find out how this progresses!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad that Logan's real feelings came through, especially with Rogue, because those weren't quite as clearly spelled out. Before we progress, we must digress a bit and look back at how he ended up in such a twisted position...Hoping to update later this week. --Wendie
heh heh Wolvie is sooo playing Jean. i hate that bitch and hope she gets her comeuppance soon.
and eeewwww, Bobby? totally fits tho, the woman has no taste whatsoever.
update soon please. :)
Author's Response: Well, she did lust after Wolvie first, so she has to have *some* taste--or at least, she did, once upon a time. And she will definitely get her comeuppance (love that word!)--not just from Wolvie, either. Turns out he's not just one in a queue in her bed, but he's also one of several folks with bones to pick with Dr. Megabitch (thanks for the nickname, mltaylor!) Thanks for letting me know you like this. Look for an update this week. --Wendie
I'm never much for stories in which Jean sleeps around or when Logan's with Jean but loves Marie... however, you pulled this off somehow, and I'm curious to see where it goes.
Author's Response: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! To know that I've gone right down the 'wrong alley' with you and you are still interested enough to keep reading makes me tingly all over. I so hope the rest of the story lives up to your expectations. --Wendie
ok I love that Logan is pining away for Marie. jean is a slut! But I can deal with her and Logan as long as he is only using her. Update soon.
Author's Response: Using. Definitely...Only...Wouldn't-even-contemplate-doing-otherwise...Doesn't-feel-a-thing...Using. Period. Believe me, it's the only way I can stomach writing Logan/Jean smut, let alone put anyone else through reading it. Eeeewww! Thanks for letting me know I haven't totally turned you off. --Wendie

Believe me, it's the only way I can stomach writing Logan/Jean smut, let alone put anyone else through reading it. Eeeewww! Thanks for letting me know I haven't totally turned you off. LOL! --Wendie
I love these kinds of stories where Jean is the bad bad bad girl. I hope she gets what is coming to her.
Logan will do anything and everything to ensure Marie's safety. Don't you just love him. * sighs *
Author's Response: Thanks for letting me know I've hit the nail on the head with regard to your kind of story. And, yeah, as big, tough, super hunky protectors go, they don't make 'em any better than Logan. I second your *sigh*, big time! And rest assured, Jean is going to get what's coming to her--and then some. --Wendie
Please continue this!!! I love it so far!
Author's Response: Thanks for letting me know you dig this. And I will definitely continue it, not only because you asked so nicely, but also because the muse and the bunny have ganged up on me and wouldn't let me NOT write it even if I wanted to quit--which, of course, I don't. --Wendie
Nice. I really like the way this is shaping up, I'm just hoping for a happy ending. (crosses fingers and toes) ps. I can see Logan as a Willie Nelson fan easy!
Author's Response: Oh, yeah, Logan is the living, breathing definition of a redneck, musically speaking, that is, so I'm sure there's more than one Willie Nelson tune on his iPod! I'm so glad you like the story and I think a happy ending is definitely do-able. I'm pathologically incapable of writing any other kind--so far. --Wendie
holy crap!!!! You wrote this beautifully and now i can't wait to read the rest....
Author's Response: Holy gratitude! Thanks a bunch! I hope to update at least once a week, but try not to hate me too much if I slip a little on that timetable...some parts of this will be tougher to write than others, but I'll do my best. --Wendie
I love to hate Jean. And I always look forward to your stories. So now tell us how Logan is saving Rogue by screwing the skanky slut(Jean issues).
Author's Response: Obviously, I share your Jean issues, as do lots of other people on this site, judging by all the times she's been called a bitch in various reviews. Part of the fun of this story is finally just calling her that straight out--no allusions, nothing implied--just 'she's a bitch. Period.' As for how Logan is protecting Rogue by keeping the 'skanky slut' happy...I'm thinking that should be clear by Chapter 3, if not sooner, depending on how good you are at deciphering the clues in this chapter and the next...--Wendie
Great start! I wondered till the end why Logan didn't smell Bobby in their room, but then you explained it nicely.
Wonder what's wrong with Jean that Logan has to keep her mood happy, so she wouldn't harm Marie or others. Is Xavier still alive? And has Rogue taken the Cure? - Just curious about the setting of the plot.
Please update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm so glad you like this. Yes, Xavier is alive and no, Rogue has not taken the Cure; that's why I marked this as AU first. It's got a little X3, mostly because Warren (Angel) is in it. Come to think of it, I should have put 'Origins' on there, too, because of Remy. Oops! Haven't decided yet if Hank will be there, too. Hmmm...I'll try to update by this weekend. --Wendie
I always love your stories. You find the right blend of drama, humor, and in this case smutiness (let's pretend that's an actual word). I really like the premise of this & I'm interested to see where this goes!
Author's Response: Thanks! *blushes furiously* And I have no trouble believing 'smutiness' is a word, even if Spell Check doesn't think so. This will go down some dark and ugly paths, but they will eventually lead to an ending I think any anti-Jean reader will appreciate. --Wendie
