Author: Skybright Daye ( beloved_tree)
X-Verse: Movieverse, post-X2. I do not believe in X3.
Word Count: 1000
Summary: Character study. Of entanglements, complications, and peace -- dreamed, actual, and imagined.
Author's Notes: In the animated X-Men series from the 90s, there's a scene where Wolverine drops to his knees in the middle of a snowfield and cries out "There's no peace for me! Even here!". That moment has never entirely left me. So this is a somewhat meandering examination of Logan in light of that remembered moment; what it means for him to live a life that's complicated by being wrapped up in Xavier's, to never be quite at peace even when he is living the Wolverine equivalent of a settled life. As per usual, there are a couple of cloaked shoutouts to comics canon in it, because I think I'm a lot cleverer than I actually am.
As always, I own nothing. I am a Textual Poacher.
