WIP?: Complete!

Why This Must Be Read: Scott/Rogue has always been a rather obscure pairing. As such, there's not really tons of fic for them, especially fic that does this good a job of being in character and trying to speculate on a (as of then) uncertain future. It's a slow-burn romance and one that doesn't demonize or dismiss their other relationships or friendships. While this is not necessarily a place I'd have ever taken these characters, it's a well-written look at someone else's ideas for them.

(Also, I was absolutely THRILLED to see this archive turn up again as it's been offline for several years and has some amazing work that wasn't published anywhere else.)
