Last Exit To Eden
This is a Jean/Logan fic that I am really liking. In any J/L fic the
author must somehow write Scott out of the picture, and I like the
way the author has handled the situation in her story. In this story
all three characters, Scott, Jean and Logan, retain their dignity.
Scott is not a jerk, Jean is not a tramp, Logan is not a creep. In
this AU, Jean doesn't die at Alkali -- Scott does. He never comes out
from under Stryker's drug, and Jean is forced to kill him to save
herself. Grieving and guilty, she leaves the mansion and wanders,
eventually ending up in Canada. Logan goes after her. I like this
Jean. The author takes the time and trouble to describe Jean's
complicated feelings as she grieves for Scott and works through her
guilt for having been attracted to Logan while Scott was alive, and
for still being attracted to him. This is a WIP and Logan and Jean
appear to be headed for an adventure in Nova Scotia. I am going to
look forward to the next installment.
Rising to the Sunset
This is a great Kitty story. She gets to shine in this one. Plot:
Post X2, Scott thinks his psi-link with Jean is still active and that
she is still alive. While everyone else thinks he's crazy and pities
him, Kitty tries to piece together the scientific evidence that he's
right. S/J, but a nice Kitty-Scott friendship story.
Queer Eye For the Mutant Guy
A funny one. Logan gets a make-over. Logan's definitely in character.
So are the boyz. The dialog cracks me up.
Survival or Life
This one has Victor Creed (Sabertooth) as the main character, and
believe it or not, it turns into slash, Victor/Scott. Okay, it's a
very unusual pairing, but give it a chance. It's well-written and
believable. I like the way the author writes Victor. He's not the big
dope from the movie. Victor interacts with three OCs (troublemaker
students) in a way that is very interesting to follow. I also like
the way Ororo, Logan and Kurt react to Victor. Ororo isn't a
cardboard cutout. She gets angry and accusing and says some mean
things. She's human. Logan's interaction with Victor is also
