Summary: John lost a lot at Alcatraz, and gained a little bit in the aftermath.

"Try this instead." Remy pushed the whiskey over and watched, close, while John twisted the glass then sniffed the liquid. "C'mon, mon ami, you know you want to try it."

He crooked a grin, and flipped the card around his fingers, walked it from one to the other. John watched him over the top of the glass and then, fast, swallowed the whiskey down in a gulp.

It hurt, it burned, it was a fire in his belly. He couldn't breathe, but it was so good, so hot, and it uncurled in his stomach, warmed him from the inside out. Remy grabbed the glass from his hand and slammed it down on the bar.


After X3, John has lost his powers and his way - but there's a light at the end of the tunnel in the form of a certain Cajun gambler. Pyro and Gambit strike me as an interesting match, I like seeing them have fun together. (Of the getting into fights and burning things variety, and the other kind.)

Really nice pencil drawing - I love the detail on the jacket and Remy's playful expression.

All I have to say to this is: guh. Gambit certainly is pretty. I really like the detail on the hair and the glowing eyes.

Gorgeous digital paiting; I love the way the image is springing out of its frame and the glowing staff.

Summary: Remy and Logan are both full of surprises.

When Logan returned, she was busy laughing with Remy.

He strode up to them while they sat on the couch in the rec room. "How are you, kid?"

"Logan!" She had been surprised. Surprised to see him standing there, looking so familiar and so foreign. Surprised at herself for not knowing quite what to do. "I'm fine," she said, answering his question. Pleasantries, she thought. Right. "How are you?"

"Good." He snorted and shook his head. "Good enough."


A tense, suspenseful piece that mixes X-Men adventure with an exploration of how Rogue's relationship with Remy LeBeau might play out in the presence of Logan. Twisty and exciting.

Summary: "Remy didn’t have the luxury of fooling himself that way."

He didn't bother to contemplate how the hell Logan had found him here, out in the middle of a swamp, in a tar-paper shack with no electricity, and running water that only ran when someone worked the pump handle. Logan was just like that.

Come to think of it, Remy would have been more surprised if Logan *hadn't* shown up.

"Did Rogue send you to come get me?" Stupid question, but he asked it because he was sick of watching Logan watch the ice melt in his glass of whiskey. Ice didn't last long in Louisiana, especially in the middle of July.

"Yeah. I told her you'd come back on your own, but ..." Logan shrugged. "You know."


Remy and Rogue have a complicated relationship, and one of the complications is Logan. Gambit has his own particular way of dealing with the problem. I love the imagery in this, and the way Rogue is very much present despite her physical absence.

Summary: Scott Summers has trouble with a new student. One thing leads to another.

"The eyes bother you?"

"No." I'd seen stranger things on the kids. I'd seen stranger on myself. And he'd already put the joint away, so I wasn't going to insist on anything further.

"Gambit could keep them closed for you ..." And leaned in and kissed me.

Just his lips on mine, and it wasn't as deep or as demanding as I might have expected. Delicate little brushes of his tongue on my mouth, never quite pushing in. And strange, because if he'd been more aggressive about it, it would have been easier to push him away.


I'm a hard sell on Scott/student pairings - or, really, any teacher/student pairings in any fandom. This story, though, does a brilliant job of showing exactly how Cyclops might get drawn into a relationship with Gambit, and what he might find there that he hasn't found with Jean.
