X-23 belongs to Marvel.

An explanation: I get flamed for this A LOT and frankly I don't want to hear it anymore because it's never going to change my mind. A while back in the X-23 comics they had Gambit being her mentor of sorts. Normally I'm pretty adamantly against odd pairings, but I got the idea for X-23/Gambit in my head and was never able to get it out. I fucking love them together and I'm pretty sure I always will.

Emo shite of her missing him.

have to say, this definitely catches the depression that Laura has. Even by the standards of a 90's comic she is a tragic character, and this captures that well.

As for the paring, what ever floats your boat.

I just wanted to say that this piece has really grown on me.  It's quickly becoming one of my favorites on deviantART outright.  I have to agree with you entirely.  Gambit and X-23 are a pairing that just works.  I want more stories of them!

Who wouldn't want Gambit?

X-23 / Laura Kinney and Gambit / Remy LeBeau are both of my favorite MARVEL characters.

I'm glad that I collected and keep the comic book series, watched the animated series (including the episodes that are involved), and played as them in MARVEL vs CAPCOM series (MvsC 2 & 3) with air combos.

I'm not sure about them as a couple because of the step father/emotional mentor role he kind of played.
But then again, I kind of see what you mean about they almost belong together for the same reason and their respective histories and how well that intermingles including the psychology.

Well it worked out for the best so Gambit and X were good in my book. Hell I even caught an interview where Margerie Liu said that had the book been able to continue she was going to bring Black Widow to fill the mentor role for Laura, and the more I thought about it the more I came around to seeing it and liking it.
