"The compound is actually derived from the reproductive spores of
"Magic mushrooms, Logan" Ororo spoke before gesturing for the professor to
"Thank you, now the ingestion of these mushrooms induces a euphoric condition
which would render someone more pliable to someone else's commands, leading
them to do things they might otherwise not participate in."
"Especially if the person is dealing them to you.I found a prescription
bottle on her counter. Looks like Darkholme's using medication as a cover.
Rogue's not the kinda person who'd go looking for professional help on her
own." Logan said looking up from under the brim of an oil skin hat.
"Indeed, now in addition to the Psiloaybe I found equal amounts of narcotic."
"If those were mixed together in the same pill, then the narcotic would
insure continual use."
"Correct, Ororo. Now if we only had actual samples to test further..." Xavier
trailed off turning to Logan. He took his cue and rose from his seat
withdrawing three yellow pills from his pocket and depositing them on he
desk. Prof shook his head with a small smile at the other man's
assiduousness. Logan absently wondered if it was a good thing that the
professor expected him to steal Rogue's medication. Shrugging he resumed his
"But, Professor, if Rogue has been taking these pills for an extended period
of time then why now have they shown ill effects?"
"Good question, now the test conducted on her hair sample shows that she's
been taking these regularly for at least five months. That would coincide
with her arrival in New York. And seem to make are assumptions on Ms.
Darkholme more solid. Now for the cause of Rogue's black out, she does
participate in recreational drug use particularly LSD and other
hallucinogens, amung others. Now certain amounts of these chemicals are
stored in the spinal fluid sometimes for the rest of one's life, causing
periodic flash backs as it were. Now Logan, when you allowed Rogue access to
your power, your healing factor moved to cleanse these toxins from her body
releasing them into the blood stream. Unfortunatly the factor began to fade
before they could properly filter through her kidneys. It simple shocked her
"She over dosed?" Logan looked up with a heavy frown the cheroot in his mouth
"Not exactly and with much luck. She simply shut down in order for her body
to heal more. She'll be fine, now Logan is the only reason you allowed Rogue
to absorb you because of the drug the man slipped her?"
Logan stared him straight in the face. "Yeah, Chuck, she was pretty wobbly."
"Alright, now if you'll both excuse me I have some more pressing matters to
attend to." Ororo and Logan rose leaving the office. Xavier reached across
the desk and scooped the canary yellow tablets into his hand. "Why drug a
teenage girl? What are you planning Mystique?"
