Why This Must Be Read: This is a charming series of stories, told year-by-year, as Rogue grows up. I love the exploration of a growing, evolving relationship between these two characters, and how sweetly optimistic this series is.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a remix of the “For Now” series, retold from Logan’s point of view, which matches/mirrors each of the stories from the original series. The POV switch opens up a whole new side of this story; I’d be hard pressed to say which of the two versions of the “For Now” series I like best - the original (Rogue’s POV) or the remix (Logan’s POV) - they’re both that good.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a lovely, unrequited look at Rogue and Logan - it’s bittersweet pining, wrapped up in a cross-country road trip. This fic is light on the surface, but deep with unspoken emotion. As much as I love Rogue and Logan, it’s hard for me to see these two characters in any sort of real relationship in the actual movieverse canon, and this story captures the relationship they do have (which is more unusual and deeper in some ways than a sexual one might be).
