X-men, 2, Gambit/Rogue

 Because X-men are friggin' awesome.

Fandom Category: X-men (comics)
Pairing: Rogue/Gambit
Fic Title: Blind Sight
Author: Valerie J
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Adventure/Romance
WIP?: sadly, yes. however, there's more than enough to enjoy.

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's epic and humongous and written by an incredible author. I'd rec all the rest of her work, but that'd take too long. It has character development and a gigantic world and is completely fascinating. All of the Romy moments are thoroughly earned. This effects my internal characterization of Rogue and Gambit in so many ways. It's a sequel to a story just as wonderful and cowritten with Lori MacDonald, which you can find on the author's page (however, with less Rogue; it's more setup to the Thieves' Guild). 

Fandom Category: X-men (comics)
Pairing: Rogue/Gambit
Fic Title: Bad Touch
Author: katjen
Rating/Warning(s): officially Teen; however, there is mention of child abuse.
Genre: Romance/Drama
WIP?: no; however there is a sequel in the works called Cheating at Solitaire that is unfinished. Recent update, tho, so high hopes!

Why This Must Be Read: Because this may be one of the most dramatic and emotional stories I've ever read. Because you really begin to see things from Rogue's perspective. Because even when the writer's grammar and punctuation errors make my teeth wince, I'm still enthralled by the story. Because it's absolutely fantastic.
