Even though we weren't together for very long, it seems like Remy has always been a part of my life...my own personal soap opera. Storm and Jean said I'd have to deal with what happened sooner or later. I might as well get it over with.

It's all in the past...
Until it comes back to bite you in the butt. It amazes me that, despite my powers, I've still had my share of love interests in my lifetime. Unfortunately for me, though, none of them were really resolved..

My first boyfriend was Cody Robbins. I hurt him bad -- My powers showed up the first time he kissed me. After that, I had to get away, and I left home for good and wound up with Destiny. And the rest, so they say, is history, except that I had to go ahead and get Cody involved in one of my scrapes again...and it got him killed. Sure, they say that it was Candra's fault and all, but his association with me --even after so many years -- is what got him killed. I don't know if I can ever really forgive myself for that one. I guess I'll just have to add it to the list.

Then there was Longshot -- real sweet boy. He had no idea what was really going on sometimes; he could be so naive. I tried to steal him from Dazzler. It didn't work (they're together on Mojoworld now; last I saw them, they were expecting a kid), but I wasn't too broken up about it. Yeah, I was sweet on him, but I didn't really have any big hopes pinned on him. For someone like me, that's probably the best way to go, huh?
I honestly thought there was something between us, after our time together in the Savage Land. He saved my life, and I fought by his side and defended him -- even after we parted. But there was so much left unresolved. All our meetings afterward were in battle -- not the ideal place for a heart-to-heart, eh?

I'd like to think that there's still something there between us, but that won't do me any good now, seeing as how he's not really here anymore. Sure, there's Joseph, but he's no Magneto...

It did surprise me how easily the rest of the team appeared to accept my past with him. It was one of those things that everyone knew about but no one discussed --at least around me. I wonder what they said behind my back.

and then there was Gambit...
Remy was putting the moves on me--and all the other X-gals--from the moment he stepped foot in the mansion.

Sometime between the time Magneto mind-controlled us and our first picnic, though, he seemed to focus his attention on me. I still haven't figured out why. I mean, why would Remy, a guy who could have any girl he wanted, want me, a gal he couldn't even touch? It still puzzles me.
