Fic Title: Physician, heal thyself
Special Rec: 61/100
Why This Must Be Read: This story is the X3 movie we should have gotten. Marie's characterisation is wonderful, the perfect continuation of the person we saw in the first two movies (honestly, I get chills just reading her shout of, "can anybody fly?" -- just perfect) and the promise of something more between her and Logan is wonderfully subtle. An excellent AU.
Fic Title: A Shift in the Air
Rating/Warning(s): R, sexualised not!knife/claw-play
Special Rec: 62/100
Why This Must Be Read: I never knew I could find knife or bloodplay hot until I read this fic. This story is the ultimate in intense, with both Marie and Logan so desperate for touch and the ability to really feel something that... well. The characterisations here are dark but pitch-perfect, the sex is hot if disturbing, and the premise is thoughtful and well considered. This story will stay with you, after.
Fic Title: Sweet
Special Rec: 63/100
Why This Must Be Read: Brief but intense, Logan contemplates the effect Marie's power has on him and what will happen next. I like how this doesn't waste any words, just gets straight to the point; very nicely done!
Fic Title: Chasing Chronos
Rating/Warning(s): R, underage sex
Genre: Romance, Drama
Special Rec: 64/100
Why This Must Be Read: Chasing Chronos has everything that makes for a fantastic story: romance, drama, time travel, and references to the Terminator movies. Wonderfully characterised, beautifully written, and with an utterly engaging storyline, Ransom takes us on a journey with Logan and Marie that the movies themselves never could have.
Fic Title: The Fourth Time
Rating/Warning(s): PG, character death
Special Rec: 65/100
Why This Must Be Read: Dark and angsty and powerful; Logan (and Marie) deal with his immortality. I love the implications of this story, and of how things could conceivably turn out for our favourite two mutants. Completely plausible.
