My first Drabble
Exactly 100 words. I'm so proud! Crossposted to xmen100. Spoilers for X3


Storm heard he was leaving from Rogue, who was the only one he’d said good-bye to. Rogue cried as she told how he’d hugged her, pressed his dog tags into her ungloved hand and then just held it for a minute before saying good-bye. He didn’t say where he was going.

She found him in the garage, filling the tank on Scott’s motorcycle. “Don’t run away,” she pleaded. “I need your help.”

“I’m not running,” he replied, back to her. He pulled a pair of dark red sunglasses out of his pocket. “I’m returning these.”

“He’s dead.”

“No, he isn’t.”

::looks closely at icon::

D'you know, I have *no* idea! I was so busy drooling at Scott that I didn't even notice that.

Maybe it just means X3.

Congrats on doing a drabble. Keeping a piece under 100 words, yet interesting is hard work. Leaving things unsaid is often just as hard as expressing them.

It's a little like writing a haiku or a limerick or something - keeping it to the form is half the fun.

Scott's not dead, he's just sitting on the side of the highway waiting for Logan to give back his damn glasses and his bike!

LOL! And saying "Where the fuck have you been?!" when he shows up.

Hooray, Logan to the rescue! I really didn't understand how nobody seemed to give a damn about what happened to Scott - like: oh well, too bad, he's gone. :o

Writing drabbles is a fun challenge isn't it? It really makes you focus on making each word count :).

And Charles didn't even seem to give a damn *before* he was gone. It was like: oh well, he didn't get over his fiancee dying and being unable to save her quick enough, too bad, let's forget him.

It was a fun thing to do.

There was lots of OOC stuff like that. It was very frustrating to even a casual fan. Fortunately, all of you X-Men fic writers can fix it up :D

Oh tease, tease, tease.

Has my favourite Logan/Scott writer caught the X3 bug?

Maybe. But to write a real post-X3 story, I think I have to see the movie again. And I'm working on this other thing...

Love it! You know you have to continue now, right? This story is crying out to be written.

Well, I've figured out what really happened to Scott and how Logan knows he isn't dead, so maybe I ought to write it.

Now that you've figured out what really happened, you MUST let us all in on it! By writing a story! Or two or three...

The movie will be out on dvd soon enough, at which point you can watch it many times over.

I can wait. :-)

Lovely! Short but very powerful and ending on an intriguing note. I, for one, would not be at all upset should you decide to pursue a longer story ;)

Finally the Goddess of X-Men fanfic is gonna fix the *hole* in X3, only 1000 words and already enough to get my hope rising again.

Oh no you don't know me, cos I never post(Sorry)....though I've reading all your fiction for a long long time. But I always think that you're the best writer in Logan/Scott fic^^
