Da   Spawn's   Note:      Why   did   I   want   to   include   this   in   my   archive?      Because   I   liked   it,   that's   why!

In Jaelle and Orla's Own Words:

Gambit, Rogue, Magneto, and all other characters are copyright to Marvel Comics and no money is being made from this post. We wish it was, but it isn't.

This is our idea of what would happen if Rogue and Magneto announced that they were going to get married. We're allowed to hope.

Gambit's Reasons Why Rogue Can't Marry Magneto

By: Jaelle and Orla

"Rogue, you can't marry Magneto."

"Why not?"

"He's older than you."

"Scott's older than Jean."

"His kids are older than you."

"Cable's older than Scott or Jean."

"He's a villain."

"Seen Sinister round lately Gambit?"

"But he's been a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants!!!"

"Your point being?"

"Look at what's happened to all his ex-girlfriends."

"At least he doesn't chase after anyone who's female, good looking and has a pulse!"

"What about his wife?"

"She's dead, which is more than I can say for Belladonna."

"He's died several times."

"Haven't we all?"

"He controls people!"

"Looked in a mirror lately Mr. Manipulator?"

"He has a bad habit of making speeches and striking poses."

"It's more healthy than smoking."

"He's awesomely insanely powerful!"

"You say that like it's a bad thing."

"He's whipped the X-Men combined several times!"

"Think what he'll do to you for interfering."

"He can't make up his mind which side he's on."

"Remy, there's that mirror thing again."

"His family hates him."

"So speaks the man who has a death threat against him from his entire clan in New Orleans."

"Every home he's ever had has been blown into little pieces!"

"At least he owned them legally."

"Your interests and tastes are too far apart."

"Ever heard of the saying 'opposites attract'?"

"Oh for... he says potato and you say pohtato sugah."

"As opposed to pommes des terres Ah suppose."

"He's got a bucket on his head!"

"That can be fixed."

"His hair's longer than yours!"

"Really scraping the bottom of the barrel now aren't we? This is the Marvel Universe, give me a couple of issues and mine'll reach the floor."

"Okay den, de last and final reason you can't marry him is because I say so!"

"Gambit, fist. Fist, Gambit."


Magneto poked his head round the door, "Rogue? What was that thump?"

"Oh nothing, just putting the cajun, uh, cat out."

"We don't have a cat."

"Don't you start."
