I love this! I love how you write them! It's fantastic!

All these years and I've never read this? I can't believe it. Well I'm glad I corrected that today. This was great. I do hope Remy has other things to do beside follow Rogue, but the conversation was good, with plenty of hope for the future. Thanks for writing this :-)

aw! that was really cute, ya know, i never really thought about the Remy and Rogue thing being compared to Romeo and Juliet, hadnt even crossed my mind 'til i was listening to Love Story by Taylor Swift the other day. huh, guess it does work... poor Remy though, but he has Rogue, :)

Crying kind of good. I read this ages ago and once before that. It's still just as amazing, as poetic, as eat your heart out wonderful. :sniffs: Love it.

*Squee* This is brilliant. This is definitely different from other, rather cliched, Romeo & Juliet Romy fics.
What struck me as making this fic realistic were the awkward silences. (Like the part after Remy tipped up Rogue's head.)
One of my favourite parts was this:
"Two households, both alike in dignity..." His voice was impassive, but it was his face that betrayed him. A rare slip.
Oh and I love how Remy picked up on Rogue's discomfort at his mentioning the 'English major' girl. So sweet. *g*
Overall, I suppose this is very different to other fics in that it's not only Rogue who has the issues with real intimacy. Remy's fought hard during the first battle between 'two households' and those memories can't be easily forgotten.
By the way, I love the ending. It's much more realistic than an outright 'yes' and much more satisfying for it. :)

That's so sweet!

Your prose is beautiful, and the story artfully done. I mean, calling Remy "liquid personified?" It's pretty much the perfect description of him.
I like the interaction between our two star-crossed lovers-how they're awkward but the connection between them is clear. I love the link between Remy's relationship with Bella and Romeo and Juliet, because it's so definitely true. You hit the nail on the head with Remy's answer to her question, though: the ambiguousness is quintessential Gambit. Also, I thought Rogue's opinion of Romeo and Juliet was dead-on for her Evo character, and yeah, I can see her loving Hamlet too.
In short, keep up the good work!

(I am going to shut up soon, I swear. Sorry for the barrage of reviews!)
Another thing I like about your Rogue and Gambit characterizations: you make them sound like real people. They sound intelligent, thoughtful - and still Southern, with none of that unnecessary 'accented speech' and fake French. I feel that was the great success of Evo, to finally straighten out a reasonable speech pattern for Gambit, and I love seeing that sort of thing in fic.
Plus, great lines. "In Bayville, where we lay our scene." Classic!

"He would saunter, glide, grace you with his presence. Never anything so common as walking." Remy is indeed very like that isn't he. He's like a freakin' rock god or something. So infuriatingly awesome. So freakin' obnoxious.

Really nice. A most intriguing piece of literature (I call it lit. 'cause I appreciate it).
You haven't overruled afore-mentioned statenents like most authors do, an' that's a relief 'cause it shows you re-read your fics before posting.

I agree with Rogue, I'm more of a Hamlet girl myself, but you can't help but love Romeo and Juliet when it's presented in the context of Rogue and Remy. This was beautiful!

Very different, and a wonderful story. And I don't even like Romeo and Juliet! ;)

I was just randomly reading profiles and stumbled about this - until know - unkown master piece of yours.
Wonderfully done! It's funny, sad and has just the right amount of sweetness. :) And when Rogue remembered Bella ... god, I got that empty feeling down at the pit of my stomache ... though I like this version of her as opposed to the totally insane/incestious/bitch version some authors write (not that it's not entertaining but for me it always raises the question as to why Remy would love her in the first place).
AWESOME one-shot! I loved it. :)

Heehee, that was great. I liked the idea and you can never have anything too cliched. You wrote it well. Of course, the ending was terrific, could imagine it all.
Well done m'luv,
