Pairings: Cyclops/Rogue

Summary: Rogue/Cyclops – Homework Help


Cyclops glanced up as he heard another slam of a book, followed by yet another sound of frustration. Concerned, he moved to find the source of the noise and was surprised when he found that it was Rogue.

“Are you alright?” he asked her carefully. “What’s going on?”

“Nothing,” she replied in a voice that most certainly said it was in fact something.

“It doesn’t sound like nothing. You’re slamming things around so loudly, I’m sure the whole school can hear you.”

“Sorry,” she mumbled the apology. “I’m just…” she fumbled for the words. “I’m having trouble with math,” she finally blurted out.

It didn’t take Scott long to explain in detail the math dilemma she claimed to have. That done, she still looked uncomfortable. “Is something else going on Rogue?” he asked softly. She hesitated and Scott wondered if she would confide in him. She seemed to get along better with Logan. Course, a lot of people did. That had been the source of his last argument with Jean. “You can tell me, Rogue. I know this isn’t about math.” It didn’t take a telepath to tell that. She was too good at school and already understood the math too well.

“Bobby and I had a fight.” She started slowly, just as Scott was beginning to think she was going to refuse to talk. “I’m so tired of being like this.”

“You’re special Rogue…”

“Don’t tell me that!” she replied. “I can’t touch anyone… no one can touch me. I can’t even kiss my own boyfriend.”


“Don’t tell me I’ve got time. You don’t understand what it’s like – being completely alienated from every other human being on the planet.”

“I don’t have all the answers Rogue. All I know is that you can’t give up. The end result will be worth all the waiting and the pain you’re going through.”

“What do you mean?” she asked, looking up at him.

“When you find the right person at the right time, there’s really nothing quite like it,” Scott said. “Just be patient a little longer Rogue. The Professor will find the answer. He always does.”

“Scott?” she asked softly. “Thanks.”

She noticed how no one ever went near him, even given the visit and interaction with the other three quarters of the Fantastic Four. “The Thing”, as he was referred to, spent most of his time hanging out near Hagrid’s shack. Apparently Hagrid was one of the only ones who did not shun him.

She found herself venturing out there one day, only to find him sitting there alone.

“If you’re looking for Hagrid, he’ll be back soon.” His voice was gravelly, with a tinge of disappointment and sadness.

“Alright,” she replied softly. “But I actually wanted…”

“To come see the freak?” he asked.

“Actually I was hoping to find out more about you, like your name?”

He looked surprised, but recovered pretty quickly. “I’m Ben. What about you?”

“I’m Hermione. I’m friends with Harry and Ron, though you may not know them. We’re all friends with Hagrid. Your friends seem nice.” She found herself at somewhat of a loss for topics because she really knew nothing about this Ben.

“They’re a good bunch,” Ben agreed. “It’s funny, for as large as I am, and despite the fact that Sue is the one who is gifted with invisibility, I feel as if I’m the invisible one here. Can’t say I like it, but it sure beats people yelling, screaming and running away every time I come around.”

“You’re only invisible because you choose to be. I’m sure that plenty of people here would give you a chance if you’d let them.”

“I doubt many would like you think. The wizarding world may be different from the rest of the world, but I am strange in either realm.”

“Everyone is strange in some way. It’s just more visible on some than others,” she replied, smiling softly. “I’ve got to go or I’ll be late for potions so I guess I’ll see you later.”

“I guess you will,” Ben replied softly, smiling back at the little girl.

Summary: Sequel to Homework Help though you don’t need to read it to understand this. Cyclops was right. Right place and right time plus right person is amazing. Done for the crossover challenge galore challenge. I chose the touch prompt

Peter/Rogue – touch, love, flight, smile, strength


Sometimes she still missed Bobby. He and Kitty had started dating soon after she’d given up her powers. She’d given them up mostly for herself, but she’d also hoped that things would get better between her and Bobby. Instead, he’d been angry with her for ‘giving up’ as he’d put it. In a way, she supposed that she had sold out. And she still wasn’t welcome back home, because as all mutants who took the cure soon found, the cure didn’t last. So despite all the trouble, despite losing Bobby, she’d gained nothing. She was even more isolated now than before. Her one escape, her one joy, was in going out at night incognito.

Every night Rogue gathered her gloves and cape and went out, lurking in the town and imagining what it might be like to be normal. It was during one of these excursions that she caught the eye of another guy. He was very different from Bobby – darker in some way. He wasn’t evil, but he seemed as isolated as she. He was in the bar one night. And then she saw him the next and the next. They would sit and watch the world, separately together somehow.

Finally one evening, he came over to her table. “You’re different, like me. I can feel it.”

Taken aback, she nodded.

“Give me your hand,” he said softly, knowingly.

Rogue reached out her gloved hand as if to shake his and he reached to pull off her glove. “Don’t!” she said, starting to pull back.

His eyes caught hers with their intensity. “Trust me.” The words echoed in her mind as she relaxed, allowing him to remove her glove and take her hand. Suddenly she was taking his life away, but …. What was happening? He was taking it back.

Rogue jerked her hand back. “You’re like me,” she whispered in wonder. The sensation hadn’t hurt and he didn’t appear to be in any pain.

“We balance each other,” he replied. “We were made for each other.”

In that instant, he sounded like the Professor – prophetic. “I hardly know you…”

“I’m Peter Petrelli,” he introduced himself. “Let me buy you a drink because I think we’ve got a lot in common.”

Title: To Defend and Protect

Title: To Defend and Protect
Rating: PG
Fandom: Heroes/X-Men
Pairings: For the galorechallenge – protect
Summary: Matt/Rogue – touch, thanks, protect, love, family


Matt Parkman was finally back in control of his life. First had come his second chance at the detective exam, and when he’d passed it, he’d been offered a position with the FBI. Soon after that, he’d reconciled with Janice and now they had a child on the way. His life was about as close to perfect as it had been far from it the year before. He still had his telepathic ability, but he’d started distancing himself from all the things that highlighted it, including the others like him he’d met along the way. He’d decided that forward motion was the best. No need to look back, no need to dwell, no need to risk it all – not when he’d managed to get it all back.

The only thing he disliked about his new position was the fact that his department was in charge of hunting down the so-called “mutants”. It made him uncomfortable deep down, but he forced himself to shove that feeling away. After all, if these people truly cared about belonging and being part of society, they wouldn’t have yet been identified. Some of them even highlighted their powers as making them special and different, deserving of special considerations.

The world was changing and they needed to get with the program as he had done.

“We’ve got several possible sitings in the area. Parkman, I want you to check out this address. If you find the mutants, do not engage them. They are to be considered very dangerous.”

“Yes sir,” Matt replied, taking the paper and memorizing the address before getting in his car. With his ability, he’d know as soon as he arrived at the address. Just before he opened the door, someone grabbed his hand – one of the passersby in the area. “Can I help…” he started to say and it suddenly felt as if his very life was being drained from him.

We know who you are and you us. We are not harmful and we can help you with your gift.

The thoughts flashed through his mind suddenly and he also realized that he felt normal once again.

We can help and protect you and yours but the choice is up to you
