Favourite fanfics that I
recommend to everyone.
I'll admit right now that I'm not a dedicated reader of fanfics. I don't like
to read into the genre too much in case it inadvertently influences what I write
myself. I'm sure plenty of you have read more than I. Nevertheless there are
a few fics that I've simply come to adore. Here's a list of those stories that
have inspired or influenced me; or that I simply plain love. Make sure you leave
these writers their due credit, they deserve it!
by Letanica - My favourite one-shot ficlet. It picks on events just
before X-Treme X-Men #30 - Remy's going to join Storm at the convention in
Texas and Rogue gets clingy. Nothing fancy or dramatic, just real life, some
sexy moments, and some amazing dialogue. Letanica's also currently writing
a full-length story, Happenstance
- make sure you check it out too!
by Katjen - One of the most amazing fics ever written - I just can't
gush about it enough. An AU where Rogue ends up being manipulated into the
Brotherhood while being inexplicably drawn to an enigmatic Cajun. But that
synopsis just doesn't do it justice. It's so much more complicated. Amazingly
heart-rending and emotive writing, with some of the most believable and compelling
characterizations of Rogue and Gambit ever written. Am I making myself clear
enough? READ IT NOW!
by Katjen - [Incomplete]
- Sequel to 'Bad Touch', and just as good as the first - except it's
from Gambit's POV.
by Chaoscat - [Incomplete] - Set in the Evo universe, this fic picks
up on a much more mature team after Apocalypse has gained control of the world
and taken Rogue as one of his Horsemen. Only four chapters in so far, but
trust me, epic greatness beckons... ;)
for a Second
by Vicki Lew - [Incomplete] - This is one sexy AU, and is already pretty
much all over the net, but I feel I must add my piece. The premise is simple
- a Cajun thief accidentally on purpose comes across a rogue assassin and
ends up saving her chops. But as usual it turns out to be a whole lote more
complicated, and watch out for the twist in chapter 15! Spicy, sexy, and everything
in between. Ludi wants this finished!
by Patchverse-SheCat - [Incomplete] - A much more introspective fic
- it's Winter and Rogue, Gambit, Jean, Cyclops, Iceman, Polaris, Nightcrawler
and Beast are stuck in the mansion. Tensions are high and tempers will out.
Can their relationships survive the onslaught? Great writing from an amazingly
talented young author.
of My Life
by Seven Sunningdale - Who honestly hasn't read this? Okay,
I'll be honest - I haven't had the time or courage yet to read this humongous
story the whole way through, but from what I have read, it's a pretty damn
amazing fic. Super characterizations, a complex plot, and some breathtakingly
romantic scenes. Not to mention it makes awesome use of both Rogue and her
powers. An epic. It's as simple as that.
by NemesisBecoming - [Incomplete] - I'll say here and now that I'm
not a fan of Ro/Lo fics, but this is an exception. Beautifully written with
a detailed, poetic elegance, this is flow-of-consciousness writing at its
best. Logan relives a past haunted by the memory of a very special woman...
by Randirogue - [Incomplete] - An amazingly complicated piece of fiction
that perfectly mixes the romantic with the dark. This is another epic that
delves deep into the history of Rogue and uses both her powers and personality
effectively. It makes use of practically every major X-character and is coupled
with some beautiful character development. I wish this was canon. In fact,
it should be canon!
- Intense and
passionate, this gets right to the core of the characters of Rogue and Gambit,
their relationship, who they are and why they do what they do to each other.
It's an impassioned battle of wits, emotion, anger and sex that'll leave you
reeling. Awesome stuff.
