Pairing: Marie "Rogue" D'Ancanto/Logan aka Wolverine
Fic Title: Safety In Numbers
Rating/Warning(s): R / sexual situations
Why This Must Be Read: Because the author brings us inside Marie's head and the result is just heartbreaking. This is someone who knows that she can never be normal, and as a result has decided not to think about what "could be" because it's too painful. The symmetry of the counting, the imagery of the falling rain; not to mention the absolutely steaming encounter between Logan and Marie even without any skin-to-skin contact.
