X-Men v2 #179
Rogue being a mom who’s torn between happiness about her child and sadness that she can never touch her daughter, hold her daughter, kiss her daughter’s booboos.
Rogue crying at night about all of that, when she thinks no one can see or hear.
Gambit finding her as she cries, hugging her around the waist, kissing her clothed shoulder, telling her ‘It’ll be alright Cheré. It’ll be alright.’
"Want" - Illustration for Seven Sunningdale’s Rogue and Gambit fanfic, "Love of My Life", 2004.
It ain’t really finished at all but it’s as finished as it’s gonna get. :p
