"Ashen, like the dead and embalmed too late into decomposition." I've been feeling morbid enough to appreciate this.

Again, teasing, but rich with beautiful descriptions. I always love your Logan & Rogue dynamics. This is no exception. Glad she's got more fire than The Girl & Heal Over Maries - but there's still a *hint* of something that's not quite right, just a bit broken somewhere that makes her Rose's Marie.

That doesn't make sense, sorry. Taco coma.

Author's Response: You almost always make sense when you say you're not making sense. Thank you for this, and for being so awesome I'd split my zero bar with you...and give you the bigger half.

Rereading this, I am struck by the thought that Jean seems more sympathetic than you sometimes paint her. She was downright mean in "The Girl" and "Science Geek Series" and especially "Heal Over." I've never disliked her, so I'm enjoying this different portrayal. (I do find it amusing that Logan doesn't seem to find her all that attractive, though, considering he used the word "screech.")

Author's Response: Yes, I semi-challenged myself ('semi' because I was almost positive that I wouldn't be able to do it) at the beginning of this to depict Jean with less hatred than I normally feel for that character. Sometimes it slips out, but I don't intend to make her the bad guy in this one. It was very astute, intuitive of you to notice. Thank you very much!!!!!

I loved, loved, LOVED this chapter. The reason it's taken me so long to review is that I really could not narrow down my favorite lines. I managed to get it down to -- what, 5?

"to Jean, following as dedicated and useless as a shadow"

"the flurry of bitter sparks in his chest"

"Logan expected her to fall against him, into him, with the ease and the sharp relief of a puzzle piece finally submitting to its designated niche"

"the sidelong glances of those who had not fully left childhood but had been transformed into weapons through necessity"

Just a beautiful, amazing, lyrical, evocative chapter, so packed full of goodness it didn't seem short to me. Can't wait for more.

Author's Response: I crowed aloud at this, danced happily (and probably frighteningly) in my chair. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have just read this story the first time and I am really enjoying it. I am interigued as to why Rogue may have been with the Xmen before and left and why they treat her like they do now that she is back. Your writing style for this is more lyrical than your previous pieces. I don't know if you are trying to give this piece an almost poetic quality but that is what you are doing and I find it compelling to read and a wonderful change of pace. More PLEASE!!!

Author's Response: Lord, I could have sworn that I had responded to this review--I've certainly drooled over it enough. Thank you, thank you a million times. This was so sweet, so very generous. >hugs<

Wow! Could these two be any crankier? I love your version of Logan. He's so... annoying. So not domestic! I really wanna know how these two will bond? But I also like your pace; taking things slowly - very realistic.

I love this part: "He did not notice when the Blackbird lifted its wings to meet the sky,.." It's very clever how you've used Logan's phobia of flying. That he's so taken by her that he doesn't even notice his "fear". Excellent!

And yes, my favorite author, I will send (if I have any) my questions to you. Okay, here's a question: when will you upload chapter 5?? :-D

Author's Response: a gritty, dark, realistic way or an obnoxious way? Because I was totally shooting for obnoxious. ;~D Things will speed up semi-sorta-soon. I hope you will enjoy it just as much then. Thank you for this. I always walk around with on air after reading one of your reviews.

Ooh, the plot thickens. Making us wait for the progression of the relationship, however, is cruel, cruel, cruel.

Author's Response: I know. Quite the heartless monster, aren't I? Almost as bad as your favorite restaurant forgetting to give you your favorite eggrolls which you paid seven dollars for, and that's like an hours worth of pay and you've been craving them all week but you're neither snobby or brave enough to walk back up there and ask for them....can you tell I'm eating dinner now? Anyhoodles, thank you. You're awesome and I'm grateful for your continued interest....I really wanted those eggrolls...

‘The next runs along a different vein, and progresses the personal relationship between Logan and Rogue, [yes!] and I felt it deserved to be separate [Damn you woman where’s your compassion].....this was not a good place to stop. In fact it was a very very cruel place to stop! You may redeem yourself by hotfooting it to that happy land where chapters are born and speed write the next delicious morsel for us.

You continue to blow me away.....I absolutely adored that 1st para x

Superb…………that’s all you get 'till the next bits up I’m rationing!!!

Author's Response: You know, rationing such scrumptious life-essential goodness is bad for your health. It's been linked to baldness and kidney failure and testicular cancer even in women....I swear, I read it in a medical health magazine journal book thing. >wide eyes< Hey I'm just looking out for your health, girl. Got your back.......Thank you very much, Litlen. You're encouragement is very inspiring.
