Rogue comes to terms with her name, what happened on the Statue of Liberty, the people in her head, and the choice of the Cure.
Character study of Rogue that touches the first three movies, with references to X-Men: First Class.
Excerpt: On a whim she drives down the street she was born on, the street she grew up on. There are a few fathers mowing the lawns, patches of green, and little boys in overalls run around the porch, weaving between the legs of moms coming back from church in their fine linen gloves and pearls and the daughters in white chiffon dresses and pink ribbons wound around their hats. She tries to think if one of the men wiping sweat from their receding hairlines is her father, if one of the women brushing the dirt smudge off their son's cheek is her mother and a baby brother she’ll never meet, if one of the girls crouched in the grass making daisy chain crowns is the replacement daughter who’s not a freak.
Mystique and Hank, post-First Class. For two people on opposite sides of what's developing into a mutant civil war they run into each other an awful lot.
