| Guest chapter 38 . 4/18/2016
Just finished reading and I desperately hope you continue this. I've noticed it's been a while... and perhaps this story no longer interests you. And considering you've already got 37 chapters, you've been at this for a while. I mean, 250,000 words? That's just amazing. When I started this I was so excited and I couldn't put it down–read it all in 2 days. And now that I indulged myself, I find myself wanting more–especially after that last chapter!
So, what I'm trying to say is you've got yourself an incredible story here and I would love for it to come back!

This story has been very dramatic, and well written. Poor logan, now we have some answers. I am curious what the reaction the rest of logans friends will have when they finally learn what happened. The x-men and students would be very angry to say the very least.

Oh my gosh golly! What a fantastic treat when I returned from vacation. This is so well thought out, so plausible. I'm jealous of ya, Joe! The writing in tight, pacing great, intrigue spot on, emotions perfectly in character...It's THE BEST offered on FFN in way too long. I hope to God ya don't make me wait months and months between the next installment. But, if so I'll simply have to 'feed' by re-reading previous chaps. Buzz me if you can. Dee

Started reading a week ago and I LOVE IT! I really like how you've put things together with plots and scenes. Hope to see another chapter soon cause I can barely wait! :D

ARE you going to finish this? If so, well ... it only took you 6 years to finish it! ;) May you complete the sequel a mite faster, before you grow tired of the plotline entirely!
The ruminations on the pool table were surprisingly interesting. I enjoyed that bit of minutiae. I've forgotten what's up with Jubes by now, and don't feel like going back 5 or 6 chapters *AGAIN* to remind myself, so tough luck with that. The convo b/w Janet and Logan was fairly satisfactory ... Logan's horror the idea of dating was a hilarious moment!
I don't understand why Mags would send Logan cigars. Did he poison them, or something? Please explain what kind of message this was suppose to send b/c I don't get it!

I'm doing my happy dance!
A lot of thought went into this chapter. The detail, pathos, emotion are first rate. It's really beautiful, Joe. You really capture both sides of Logan here and Janet is a unique, special lady.
The cliffie at the end is plain wicked. Good but wicked.
All in all, totally worth the wait.
Love it. Appreciate you. Merry Christmas. Buzz me up on IM.

Don't know why, but I find this line: "Don't know kid. Not really sure what winning would look like." extremely poignant. It's a 'deep' Logan, especially around the girls.
Really awesome surprise to get this alert this evening. And, as usual, terrific chap.
Let's hook up for a chat.

argh. Okay, ultimately, what I think is that it's an awfully short update that doesn't move the plot along very much at all. It was just one scene!
So, I'm unsatisfied. Are you having serious writer's block?
I don't know what I think about anything you've written, 'cause you just threw a couple carrots out there and until I know the purpose for them (based on future scenes), I don't know what I think about them.
| CaptMackenzie chapter 34 . 8/15/2010
So Logan wants a helmet, hmm?
I enjoyed the more civil Logan/Summers interaction. Their biitching gets old after 30 chapters, so I hope you don't include much more of that.
I miss seeing Janet in all this.
And as for finishing sooner rather than later ... are you sure about that? No offense, but I think I'll believe it when I see it!

been awhile since i looked this story up again. could never have enough of it. sad that no new chapters for nealy a year but its great that you are still continuing it. loved the changes you added last time and gave a realism to the story.

Sorry I didn't review 33. Long story. We need to chat on IM. I thought you said you wanted to wrap this story up? Now it seems you've got a sequel, if not an entirely new story. 33 and 34 Good stuff, my friend.
