Feedback: Makes you pretty
Notes: Thanks to Jen, Pete, Dot, Melissa, Meg and Laura for the beta. Thanks
to Gables for the help when I was stuck. I started this thing back in March
or April of last year, so I'm *glad* it's done. *g*
The title and summary come from Shakespeare's Sonnet 116, my personal
favorite (see below). There's also a joke swiped from West Wing in here; it
was too funny to resist.
I'm using the movie novelization story for Scott's power-manifesting
scenario. Just 'cause of one scene, but I kinda had to.
No offense meant to any Jesus freaks, Germans, Portuguese or three-sneezers.
I'm a three-sneezer myself, and some of the things that happen to Rogue in
her dating adventures have actually happened to me. Sigh. And my mother
wonders why I'm still single. *g*

this fic was written with various musical accompaniment, "Listen to Her
Heart" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers was on during crucial scenes.
Jen, thanks for letting me fictionalize you, even if you don't actually
appear in the story.
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
