You need not beg for reviews, my dear. You earn every single word ever written in praise of this work.

It's a sin for me to skip reviewing some chapters, I know, but I am that anxious to get to the next one and the next... Onward! -- Wendie

Author's Response: The fact that you would spend any of your time on this needy writer is a treasure. Thank you so much!rn

Okay, so I know you have a life. Like, you know.. other things to take care of. And you don't have much time to post awesome fics. But hey.. I got a heart? I want to know how this ends! It has almost been a month. Will you update if I return your Wolverine-hug? Cause I got nothing else to offer :(

Author's Response: Ohmygod, heartbreak!! I am so, so sorry. I've been going through a horrible period of distraction--completely my fault. But tonight I am going to stay up until it is almost or all complete. Please, please, please forgive me for a lateness I never, ever expected to apologize for.

See? You've made me read along in one go. Glad you got over the Nabokov. Like the balder, starker voice as the story comes along; glad to see how that's stil coupled with careful language a few registers above its subject matter. Find myself hoping she can find a rest with him, and he with her by providing it. Have they know each other way back? Somehow I get the ompression that she remembers him, though that shouldn't be possible unless he's suffered another amnesia in the last 15 years. Anyway, glad the story and its author are around!!!

Author's Response: Please forgive me for taking so long to reply. I'm glad you enjoyed this, and I hope the future chapters will answer your questions.

Okay, let's take this in order.

1. Darlin', please stop apologizing and stressing out about updates! People like me who update regularly are painting a house, and you are painting a Rembrandt. Do it at your own pace. I know people are supposed to suffer for their art and all that, but I also know if this stops becoming fun we are going to miss out on all your wonderful future work. So, deep breaths, take care of yourself, and we will happily accept your work whenever you can supply it!

2. A lovely chapter, and the idea of Rogue as an addict is so intriguing.

3. So much beautiful language in this, it's going to be enormously difficult to narrow it down. Is there a character limit on reviews? I guess I'm about to find out.

a quiet that filled his ears like sun warmed wax

Rogue looked up at him, a slow and almost lazy sweep of her vision, down, away, and back again

was the tall glass her request, or did the bartender see something in her face, and deem it and her too delicate for a bottle?

she made a sound incredulous and aghast, like one who has been saved from drowning only to find a the rescue boat has sprung a leak, like discovering the character of a book she didn't like in one she did.

Her voice was a stack of unweighted pages in a sudden wind

Rogue set her glass down on the counter--carefully, as if there was some designated and important niche

I'm interested to see where this is going and you have some very good descriptions, but I would suggest that you be careful that your descriptions/sides don't eat up/distract from your main story.

Author's Response: I'll certainly try. :~D

Whoa... so, where to start? First, thanks for the update (and that was not meant as a sarcasm, but gratitude)
You know what I like about you? You're so bold. So unpredictable. Like this chapter. I really, really, really loved it. The twist was so good! Wasn't something I expected or thought of. Although it was kinda obvious, now that I think about it. Anyway, there are many good things to say about this chapter. I love how you've portrayed Logan/Wolverine. And yes, I meant obnoxious. Gotta love him. One last thing, it's a great way to make these two bond. I think now Logan's gonna be more understanding of her pain and what she's going through. Before, Logan was just an ass, but I feel like in this chapter we see a new side of him. A softer side. Anyway, I really like it. I admire you so much.

Now, you have a great Easter.
Lots of love, Tamana

Author's Response: ***WHOMP***<--That's the sound of me throwing myself at you. One hundred and thirty pounds of ecstatic rogan fan giving you a bear hug--no, a wolverine hug because, let's face it, Logan would take down Yogi in a single punch. You're unbelievable. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and I hope this holiday and all the ones that follow bring you everything you could ever want. >hugs<

Apologies I seem to have forgotten to give you a line/paragraph.....or 2.....or.....[well it was hard! and I had to force myself to stop the whole thing was so damn good]

‘And he couldn't remember how many men he'd killed tonight.
And Rogue had closed her eyes on the jet as if grateful at the idea that they may never open.
And her footprints had been visible because of the freshly vacuumed carpet. His were visible because of the blood.
And why did he care?
Why did he care?
Why did he care?’

‘with only one more glance that said something that cannot be recorded, because it does have a voice. Something that had the ring of thank you and the breath of curiosity. And how could he say just how that look, that look, served to deepen his interest, like a spear sinking further into its warm-blooded target. ‘

But then, like the sudden thrashing of a candle's flame, her sleeping patterns became erratic, wholly and sharply incalculable. She'd be up, consuming days in a gulp of wakefulness.....
Like you, Jean said.
And her eyes turned cold and shuttered, blockaded like a fort under heavy fire. She looked at him like an unwanted visitor who'd overstayed his forced welcome, like any moment, any word, any action, would spark a fury whose only language was screams.....
But sometimes, oh, sometimes, Rogue would come and sit beside him, watch a movie, a game, a newsreel. Silent and passive, without the tension or inexplicable anger that so often corded the muscles in her shoulders.
As if there were nothing wrong.

Ok I’m done now! this now concludes my review x

Author's Response: What did I ever do to earn someone like you as a reader? You're reviews are like, the greatest thing imaginable plus a puppy. When me and Sarah have finished fine-tuning our plan to build a barn and lure in the naked Wolverine, you, my grand friend, can borrow him free of charge.

You are too fucking nice, you know that? How can I deserve more than I'm getting when it's taken me like a fucking month to review your story when I talk to you like everyday? I think you've got it backwards. You deserve more than you're getting. Anyway...

"And Rogue had closed her eyes on the jet as if grateful at the idea that they may never open." Oh mess. Your poor Marie.

Ah, so that's where the Pabst went!

Although I'm glad I recognize the eating at different times thing, the unwanted changes in her schedule, I have to say that I don't follow the last part. Not entirely sure what that exchange about her fix really meant, what Logan suddenly understood.

Could be the taco coma.

Author's Response: Nice? Hardly. At the video store I put a copy of WaterWorld next to Xmen, just to let Jean know what's coming to her. The words "Drown, b****, drown" may have been uttered. Not quietly. Thank you for your incredible generosity, for this, for your shared knowledge of crappy alcoholic beverages....I'm sorry. I was worried that wouldn't be clear enough. Logan saw her watching a drug dealer across the bar, concluded that she was an addict, and understood that that was the reason she didn't want him there. Make a tiny bit more sense? I hope the explanation didn't confuse you more.

Well? .........Well I adore the depth of everything in this fic, the questioning of himself, of her, of everything, the observation of every tiny detail - I have no idea how you manage to convey all of this so flippin eloquently on to our screens but am so glad you do. Your style in this one really is above and beyond and deserves much more credit.

As for your promise, It may have originally got me to take that leap into chapter reading but I never really held you to it! Once hooked in on one of your fics I couldn’t leave even if I wanted to [which my dear has not happened yet, will certainly not happen with this one and is highly unlikely to happen to any future fics!] Take whatever time you need, I have no idea where you’re going to take this, how you’re going to get there or how it will end but even if Logan ends up being an axe murderer and we’re all left saying WTF this ‘story’ is not for me – it wouldn’t change the fact I think this is the best ‘writing’ from you so far. [and so far I also happen to love the content so no worries!!] If for some reason you need an extra boost – let us know, cause I’m sure none of us that have an appreciation for the effort you put in would mind throwing you some extra praise x

Author's Response: Why would Logan need an axe? ;~D Well, you are better than the best piece of chocolate, the richest cake, the most well-cooked burger, the two extra eggroll the guy at the Chinese place slips in the box because you're wearing your low-cut top (can you tell I'm hungry?). I was relieved, ecstatic, thrilled, all the good adjectives that exist and all the good adjectives that don't, reading this. You're the best, and I'm glad I haven't lost your...readership? That the word? Or your good opinion. Thank you, with all of my heart.

I'm so happy for an update. I definitely have not lost interest and your update didn't take as long as you might think- way faster than some other authors (some of whom even abandon fics altogether, sadly). Anyway, so happy! Liked it, as usual. And the style is always so perfect!

Author's Response: I'm happier than I can say that you feel that way. Time between posting always seems quadruple as long without marvelous reviews like yours. Thank you, you're wonderful and I hope your interest continues. >hugs very tightly<

I am really interested to understand what Rogue did to be 'punished' as she is by the Xmen, especially since they are obviously asking/expecting/demanding that she use her mutation as they deem fit. It is good, I like it and I want to know more.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you, thank you. So pleased that you feel that way...I think (hope) your questions will be answered in the next chapters.

I was so happy to seean update to this story. If you're not writing for a living, you should be. Your work deserves a wider audience. Each sentence is so well-crafted it is almost a mini-stand-alone story of it's own. Please update again soon. Reading your work sinks me into a world that I am reluctant to leave.

Author's Response: Oh my god. See, this is the kind of beautiful, kind, generous message that would make me cry if I was a person who cried....Okay, that's a lie. I cry at everything, even poignant Allstate commercials. And I had to grab a tissue after reading this. Thank you, Tamisnead, for being so thoughtful.

Nope, Rose, no Tylenol needed. As always, I love your use of language and imagery... "an impertinent bird" and "cold and shuttered, blockaded like a fort under heavy fire" were wonderful. I also love the way so much is unsaid and unknown to Logan but is clear to the informed reader. Dramatic irony, yo.

As for the delay in posting, shpff. Stuff gets posted when it gets posted. I can't understand anyone who loses interest in a story just because it doesn't get completed on some hypothetical schedule. If it's worth reading, it's worth reading... and your stuff is.

People who complain about "late" posting of stories that are completely free and which the authors are sharing for the love of the telling and the craft... those people annoy me. (I actually have a rude term for them which I will not employ here, lest I call down the wrath of Devil Doll. ;) )

Thank you! :)

Author's Response: Shpff? Might be the most beautiful unheard sound in the whole world. Thank you, thank you dear girl. This was a wonderful thing to start my day with........Btw, I've had this strange craving to reread the Harry Potter books. I think its because I finally realized where your username comes from. >slaps forehead<
