ღ Laura Kinney & Remy LeBeau
— You asked why I came lookin’ for you. It wasn’t for Storm. Not the X-Men, either. It was for this. To be here for you.
— Why? You hardly know me.
— You hardly knew Alice.
— I knew enough.
— My point, exactly.
Remy: The girl and I…we both got wounds to heal. I thought I’d be the one helping her. I thought I was over my problems. But it was the other way around. She makes me remember everything.
Amar: That can’t be pleasant.
Remy: No. But it’s good f’me. I have to forgive myself…to be the kind of friend who can teach her how to love herself.
Could be there’s nothing else in our lives
So critical as this little home
Remy: What are you thinkin’ about?
Laura: Blood. Daken is Wolverine’s son, and he is a killer. I am Wolverine’s clone. I am also a killer.
Remy: That’s not all you are.
Laura: I know. I make my fate.
Daken: Dark Wolverine #9
[Astonishing X-Men #48]
Remy: Good. Got you something. For your birthday.
Laura: Gambit, I have no birthday.
Remy: Y’were born, weren’t you?
Laura: I was excised from a womb.
Remy: Well. That sounds fancy. I assume I came out the old-fashioned way.
