That's a pretty feminine fantasy. Then again Jubilee always able to beat him up and steal his potato chips/bubble mix whenever she wanted to. It's obvious who'd be wearing the pants in that ship. :p

I figured the M/Jubilee ship comes from the romantic comedy convention of having mutual antagonism turn out to be complementary character traits that fill some need they have. But they're both so comfortable with themselves that I think they really just can't stand each other. =P
LOL. To be fair to Liu, most of the fanfics on her site were submitted by others. Her own ones generally tended to shy away from smut. Though they did often have the form of "Gambit + Wolverine + Mary Sue become 'good friends' and all live together". Take from that what you will.
Haha probably Liu having a moment where her youthful indiscretions came back to haunt her. She had quite a few Gambit/Jubilee fanfics on her old fansite no? Gambit and Jubilee really is quite ick, though. At best I see them as a brother/sister pair.
Remember Jubilee had atypical tastes from the beginning; she was also living on the street for a while. That might make her like tough guys over pretty boys. She even had a sign on her bedroom in generation X that said "No Prettyboys".
Was never really sure why Jubilee developed a crush on Logan. Sure, he's like the guy who protects and rescues her, but he just doesn't seem like the prettyboy type a teenager goes squee for. Always felt that was more of a convenient plot device for CC than a realistic development.
On the other hand she's got a video casette somewhere (betamax no doubt) which has an interview with shirtless Luke Perry on it... :p
I actually feel kind of sad that X-23's apparently about to have a few issues romancing Hellion. In all rational measures, Jubilee's actually a better (and more interesting) partner for her.
Haha perhaps a twist on the old trope that women end up marrying their fathers?
This would be so bizarre and literal I find myself actually interested in reading it if it happens. I think it's not just that it's one of the more developed relationships for Jubilee, but these two actually complement and fit each other quite a bit. They can help each other grow. Very unlike M.
What really worried me was Jubilee seemed ok with the whole thing in spite of Xarus also being involved with some Siren Sect lady. Jubilee should not be part of someone else's Harem. (especially after she's worked so hard to build her own Wolverine/Gambit/Rockslide/X-23/Pixie harem :p)
Yeah actually, although I hoped that was more some kind of skanky thrall power Xarus had tsk.
I really disliked Shane shooter. His power was using his hand as a gun, and he pointed his hand in people's faces, effectively the same as a normal gangster shoving a pistol in someone's face. The Jubilee series should have ended with her detonating him.
Hey, Shane Shooter is out there...somewhere. Let's hope he doesn't come back.
He also said Jubilee's powers were more wussy than Husk's, which makes me RAEG almost as badly as the cemetary dialogue.

The insults, the innuendo, etc., none of it read to me like a conversation Paige and Jubilee would actually have. I can accept that Skin may've asked Jubes out before he died, but that's it. There needs to be another graveyard scene with Paige and Jubilee just to make up for that one. Maybe on the anniversary of Angelo's death.
Husk and Jubilee stand solemly at the grave.
Jubilee: Do you remember the last time we were here?
Jubilee: Actually neither do I.
Husk: It must have been around the time Pixie's powers went crazy and overdosed everyone with fairy dust.
Jubilee: It feels like there were a good couple of months I can't really remember, and for some reason I don't think I want to try.
Thanks. Hope I didn't permanently blind anyone with those scans
Happy 100th, Herring!
