Title: Heroes and Monsters
Rating: PG
Fandom: X-Men
Pairing: Kitty (Shadowcat)/Sarah (Marrow)

Kitty was raised to believe in "happily ever after", told the same stories as any other child growing up in a happy home. In spite of everything, she still believes happily ever after can come true.

It irritates Sarah, most of the time; Sarah, moved from foster home to foster home, implicitly taught to believe herself monstrous - and then, when she found herself a freak among freaks, saw them all slaughtered. They fight about it, sometimes.

Kitty tries to convince her lover that she is not a monster. And even if she were, monsters can get fairy-tale endings, too.

Heh! Wow. I'd forgotten all about the Kitty/Marrow subtext that was strong there for a while.

*scrounges on hard drive* Ah! There's my old 'comfort' icon made from a comic shot of Kitty with her head in Marrow's lap! *reminisces*

Great drabble. Thanks!
