The Wolverine & Rogue Fanfiction Archive
Barely Legal Since 2000
God. Can't believe I didn't notice the new chapters to this. >rolls eyes, makes over-my-head gesture< Can't promise to be half the reliable reviewer you are--sorry! This chapter was fantastic. Perfect amount of humor/sadness. Brilliant. I adore the flashbacks, even when he's with Jean. And your descriptions of his feral side are spot-on. Just--awesome.
Author's Response: Thanks! No worries about not being a 'reliable' reviewer. Who needs 'reliable' when your 'sporadic' reviews are as goofy-grin inspiring as this one is? *grinning like the village idiot--still* Special thanks for liking the 'feral' bits. Coming from someone who writes Logan as well as you do, a compliment like 'spot-on' just make me melt. --Wendie
Love mean Jean more please
Author's Response: Thanks, Summer! Oh, golly, if you think Jean is mean in this chapter, just wait til you see Ch. 3! I'm actually worried that I've made her so awful that folks will take pity on her...wait, what am I saying?...pity? for Jean? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry, lost my head there for a minute...Hope to update this weekend, but I have a funeral to go to tomorrow (former co-worker and good friend of my husband's), so it could be more like Monday or Tuesday. Thanks again. --Wendie
i looooove how you've explained how Logan's lust wanted Jean but the Wolverine couldn't care less about her...didn't even rise to the insult of her walking away without a hair out of place.
that's right...the right woman for him would be a shivering mess in his arms. god, i wish i was that woman LOL!
Author's Response: Thanks, Corinne! I really appreciate you taking time to read and review while things are still 'unsettled' for you. Moving is such a bitch. In fact, I've been known to use it as a gauge for friendship. There are good friends, great friends, dear friends and friends who will help you move. The last group are also usually the ones who will bail you out of jail.rnrnThe scene you described was one of those times when the characters surprised me. I hadn't even thought about Logan and Wolvie having different attitudes toward her until I wrote that, but then it felt really right so I went with it. And, yeah, 'quivering mess' pretty much says it all when it comes to what he could do to me!rnrnIn fact, if you're looking to do some quivering, go to Google and type in 'wolverine and rogue images' in the search bar. The links below should get you the two best pictures that come up.rnrnhttp://www.tv.com.wolverine-and-the-x-men/possible-wolverine-rogue-romance/topic/91530-1288672/msgs.html (this links to a chat board about W and R hooking up. scroll toward the bottom and you'll see it.)rnrnhttp://stevenegordon.blogspot.com/2009/03/quite-rogue.html (this is from Steven E.

This is a great background piece, brilliantly written, perfectly ‘meaty’ and informative, yet left me wanting more! It breaks my heart to think of Rogue scared of Logan but I know all will be revealed and I hope, somewhere down the line, there’s a ‘happy-ever-after’. :-)
I’m thoroughly looking forward to Jean having her say and reading more about our little Rogue.
Fav line: “...because without her there was no him. She mattered, he didn't; it was as simple as that.” xx
Author's Response: Thanks for everything! (*nudge, nudge, wink, wink*) I hate that Rogue is afraid of Logan, too, but as you suspect, everything will come right in the end. And then it will be Jean's turn to be afraid...very afraid... --Wendie
Jean is a creature of a whole different kind in this isn't she? I can't wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks! And, yeah, she is a whole other animal in this one. I probably should have put the 'OOC' tag on this, too, but it's hard for me to see Jean as anything other than a bitch, so while this shows her bitchiness to the Nth degree, it ain't that much of a stretch. Personally, I blame it all on the terrible casting in the movie--NO chemistry between Famke and Hugh whatsoever--and the script didn't exactly portray her as the warmest soul on the planet either. I'm told that she's a much better person in the comics and I will read some of those, but not until I finish this story--wouldn't want to start liking Jean NOW...that would ruin everything! Hope to update this weekend. --Wendie
I really like this chapter. Yes, it has a different feel than the first chapter, but this one is more background so that's cool. I loved the mystery of the first chapter, and with this one you added to the picture you are painting but only faint background colors and undertones. I think it works great. I can't wait to find out what/how Jean made Rogue scared on Logan. There are only a couple of things I can think would make that happen so it will be interesting if you and I share the same ideas. I wonder, has Jean been cheating on Logan the entire time they were together? If Scott died a year ago and Jean had Logan a month and a half later and 3 months ago was the dirty doctor incident, then there are about 7 months where they were 'a couple', was she cheating on him the entire time? And if so will we find out more? The first chapter explained how she did it, but will we get confirmation as to when and how Logan figured it out?
Author's Response: Thank you for such an amazing review! You have truly restored my confidence in this chapter. As a matter of fact, yes, you will be getting answers to all of those questions in the coming chapters, many of them in the next chapter. And thanks for 'doing the math'; even I hadn't quite got around to calculating how many months they were actually a couple. Keep in mind that even when they were 'together' he would still leave the mansion for periods of time, a few weeks here, a month there, and also remember that he's a feral with a very, very sensitive and accurate sense of smell...oh, dear, did I write that out loud? See, your spectacular review almost had me spilling the proverbial beans...Chapter 3 should be up this weekend to fill in a few more of the solid colors in the picture. --Wendie
Great chapter! I wonder what Jean did to Rogue. And if Logan is the only one seeing the dread Jean is.
Please update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks! I was worried about this one because it felt different than the first one, but it seems to have worked out well. As for what Jean did to Rogue, next chapter will be very informative. And remember that Logan has an accomplice, so at least one other person sees her for what she is. Update should be posted this weekend. --Wendie
More! :D :D :D
Your Logan-isms in this story make me laugh out loud. "Meaner than cat-shit," LMAO. You officially win the best Logan-isms ever award.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Coming from you, because I love the 'Logan voice' in all of your stories, I consider the best Logan-isms ever award a true honor. I have no idea where I first heard 'meaner than cat shit', but I've always thought it was rather descriptive, so it just seemed to fit. I'll be working on Ch. 3 this week with the goal of posting by the weekend. --Wendie
Man oh man. The way this is progressing reminds me of my favorite show Lost: it's addictive, has some serious WTF moments, and even though it teases you with some answers to long-lingering questions, at the end of it all you're still drooling to know more.
Are we not supposed to know what exactly Jean did to hurt Rogue yet and why?
And I've said it before, but I'll say it again: Jean seriously needs to be thrown off of the Blackbird...over a minefield...in a thunderstorm...
I hope you're plan for her "suffering" is as satisfying.
Author's Response: Man oh man, right back at ya! Lost? Really? Wow! Even though I've never seen the show, I know how popular (read: addictive) it is. I'm tickled positively pink that my story is in such good company! As for what exactly Jean did to hurt Rogue, next chapter should answer that question, assuming all goes according to plan with the writing and none of the characters give me any trouble. I like your ideas about a fitting fate for Jean and I promise the 'suffering' will be positively Biblical. --Wendie
This is good! I liked the inner musings, and the way in which Logan doesn't really know his own feelings, but as an outsider we can. I can't wait to see some Rogue/Logan interaction coming up. Nice work! :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I, too, look forward to scenes with Rogue and Logan. I need an antidote to the Logan/Jean smut! Next chapter will see them together, but not happily, I'm afraid. Not yet, anyway. But by the end, everyone will get what they want--except Jean, who will get what she deserves. Heh, heh. --Wendie
hey, i'm intrigued... not normally a jeannie-basher but i'd like to see where this goes... please?
Author's Response: I'm very happy to oblige, Hobbit! I know not everyone is a card-carrying member of the I Hate Jean Club, so I appreciate your interest in what's coming up. I'll be working on the next chapter starting tomorrow and it shouldn't take as long to get written as this one did. Thanks again! --Wendie
Just when I thought I couldn't hate jean more... you pull this on me. GGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Hate Her. And I'm as loving and forgiving as Mother Theresa, so that's saying something.
Author's Response: Holy Mother Teresa! I didn't know you could write off the page like that! Wow! I take your review as a high compliment, because the more I write, the more I'm convinced that the only good Jean is a morbidly hated Jean...and you really haven't seen her at her worst yet...Mwahahahaha! --Wendie
