THE RETURNING STORY ARC

STORY SUMMARY: Past collides with the future when old enemies and allies are brought back together in a devastating telepathic war. For Shadowcat, Rogue, Gambit, and Pyro, it will fundamentally alter everything they know.

DISCLAIMERS: All characters and organizations (with the exception of small, mostly unnamed minor characters) throughout the series are the product of Marvel.

CANONICAL NOTES: This story arc accepts X1, X2, and X3 as canon for characters and events. XO (Origins) is ignored.

LANGUAGE AND ACCENTS: Cajun French is courtesy of Heavenmetal (many thanks). French is courtesy of Disdainfully Arrogant and Marmottin (many thanks). I will not reproduce accents in this story arc. Imagine them in.

Story Summary: Two people watch the fog roll in. Rogan

Canonical Notes: Set during X3.

Author's Note: This one kinda twists canon a bit. It assumes Logan and Storm grew a little closer in between X2 and X3. Both parts written for LiveJournal community 100wordstories.


Fog

Her moods were a subtle thing. Logan would like to think he understood the meaning of the play of thunder and rain, but even that could be nuanced. It could mean she was angry, fiercely sad or afraid, or playful. But this was an even less certain thing, pooling about his feet.

Fog.

Logan stubbed out his cigar and got off the porch. He finally tracked her down to her attic domain, windows open and breezes blowing through the gathering mist.

"'Ro."

She shivered, like she had at Xavier's funeral. "Logan," she whispered. "I'm so confused."

He held her gently. "I'm here."
