Dear readers, welcome to my newest Romy 'adventure'. Now that "Revenge" is coming to an end I felt it was time to give the movie verse another chance.
Summary: Set after X3. The cure failed and Rogue is trying to readjust to the current circumstances -Jean's death (as Phoenix), Scott's unknown whereabouts and Professor's coma- and to her new life as one of the lead members of the team. After 'killing' Jean, Logan is once again tormented by his past and decides to run away in search of some answer Stryke just seemed to bring back. Worried, Storm asks Rogue to find him, although the only lead she knows about that links Logan to his past with Stryker is a young mutant named Gambit. With just that information, Rogue goes to New Orleans to find the man she thinks can help her find Logan, unaware that she's about to meet a man who will change her life forever. Just as in my previous movie-verse fics all characters are based on the movie ones, with Anna Paquin as Rogue, Hugh Jackman as Logan, Halle Berry as Storm, Ellen Page as Kitty, that boy which I still don't know his name as Bobby, and the hot Taylor Kitsch as Gambit. Well all that said hope you like it... remember I'm still learning english, enjoy and please don't forget to review!!
Chapter 1. A day in the Life
Rogue was sitting in her double-sized hotel bed, reading for what it seemed the thousand time the files Storm gave her before she left the Institute. It was her first solo mission ever and her first important one since her return after the so-called cure failed. She was scared and nervous, to say the least, however she knew why Storm had trusted her for this one. On one hand it was an opportunity the weather goddess was giving her to make amends with herself, since after she took the cure everybody else in the Institute saw her more like a traitor than a fellow teammate, a fact that bothered Rogue to no end. Ever so wise, Storm knew that Rogue needed to win her teammates back, but in order to do so, she needed to gain herself first. On the other hand, this mission was about Logan. The Canadian had left Xavier's four weeks ago -nothing unusual in his lone wolf persona- but after hearing from anonymous attacks against several government agents, which coincidentally had been members of an elite secret squad known as Weapon X led by William Stryker, Storm had a bad feeling about Logan. Logan, the only person that never refrained from touching her, that treated her as an equal since the very beginning, and that welcomed her with open arms and a big smile after the cure failed. So here she was now. Once again as the Rogue, determined to find his mentor and friend, for his sake as well as of her own.
The room was cozy and Lord, did she love the southern weather, it was warm and demanded to be outdoors and feel the sun. The cool breeze entered the room bringing with it the distinctive smells of the southern dusk, the curtains danced flapping to the rhythm of the wind and for a moment Rogue felt amazingly relaxed and peaceful. Letting out a deep sigh she closed her eyes. It felt good to be back.
From where she was sitting on the hotel bed, Rogue could see the crowded streets from the French Quarter through the window. Always so noisy and full of live, she thought, and it's still full of secrets. She knew that somewhere out there was the man she was looking for, a man she had never seen, and of whom she knew nothing, but that he had been a prisoner in Stryker's former laboratory knew as The Island on Three Mile Island. Logan hadn't kept any contact with him -not that he kept any with the people from his past- but he had once told Storm that he had helped him once and for some reason, he just wasn't sure what or why. With no other clue or any other person to turn, Storm decided to take her chances with him, Remy LeBeau.
She had gave Rogue a file with rather little information about him, courtesy of Professor Xavier's old friend Dr. Moira MacTaggert, and that was she was now reading.
Gambit. Real name: Remy Etienne LeBeau. Presumably born in New Orleans, Louisiana and active member of the Thieves Guild. Gambit has the mutant ability to tap into the potential energy contained within an object and transform it into kinetic energy upon touching it. When charged and thrown at a target, the object releases this energy explosively on impact. Possesses superhuman agility and dexterity, as well as a static interference that shields his mind from detection and intrusion by even the most powerful telepaths.
Weight: 179 lbs.
Rogue watched the pigeons circling her window and landing on the iron rails of her balcony. For what she knew, Gambit was an untargeted mutant, thus meaning the USA government didn't kept any record about him, therefore it was mostly unlikely that he went openly about his mutation, even in his hometown. Rogue knew she couldn't just go to the desk and ask the receptionist about the mutants in the area, which could be her downfall and perhaps his. Reading the file again she realized it… a mutant and a thief going by the name of Gambit must enjoy gambling. She could be wrong, but then again, she had nothing to lose. Determined to find the elusive Gambit, Rogue dressed in a sexy and quite provocative way and after put some make-up on and a pair of high-heeled boots she left the room. It was going to be a long night.
Yes, I know pretty short... but it's just a peek. This time I'll try somehting new, inspired by... guess... Yes!! HBO's True Blood!! (well it's pretty obvious that I'm addicted too... ain't it? Team Eric!!) anyhoo I'll name each chapter after a song, I love the music from the show and love the way they put together each chapter songs and plots!!! However I'm not as good as Alan Ball & Co. so plots and songs aren't relationated, it's the titles I'm going to work with. This chapter was The Beatles "A day in the life" I've already wrote my letter to Santa I want The Beatles Rockband big time. Best band ever!!!
Love you people, take care you all :D
