    I was wondering who he was going to get paired with. At first I thought Kitty, but its a refreshing change to read a story and not know exactly who is going to end up with who. Plot developments + sex scene= great update!
    Side note though:
    Ich bin traurig= I am sad
    Es tut mir Leid= I'm sorry. Sometimes when you bump into someone, they will just say "Sorry" with the German accent (Zorry), even if they do not speak English.

    @ 6-8:
    Wow, I've missed a few updates. Still, I can't complain. It's pretty nice, reading through more than one chapter and not having to suffer through as many cliffhangers.

    It seems everything's gone to hell without Logan and Professor X to keep everyone in line. No one knows how to be a team player anymore, aside from Rogue and Kitty. It's good to know that, even though Kurt's wrestling with his own-- for lack of better words-- 'inner demons', he's stepping up and picking up the slack left by the Golden Students Scott and Jean. I'm not sure yet if Wolverine's rehab will have any effect, but hopefully Tabitha can help in that respect. Make Kurt more receptive.

    So, now we have a bit of a hint for what happened between Amanda and Kurt. Poor Nightcrawler... He just can't seem to catch a break. That one bit of happiness was ripped out from under him, and I can easily see how that led him to the bottle. His whole life has been a veritable hell.

    You mentioned you work without a beta, and I find that incredible. I can't see any typing errors at all, and I'm floored. I take it you go back and read your own work to catch errors before submission. Kudos!

    This is wonderful so far, and I am anxious to read more.

    Oh, poor Kurt. His memories are starting to get all jumbled and make no sense. D8 Good thing Wolverine came back to the mansion and he's been caught. I can't say rehab will be a pleasant thing for him, but he needs it.

    Ooo. Very interesting and well written! I especially love that first chapter with the image inducer. It really kept me wondering what happened to poor Kurt!
    The use of German is really good here too. The mistakes are really minor and there are not many of them.
    "Ich bin kein Teufel." (because devil is masculine). I would probably also say "Lass mich los!" instead of "Lassen Sie mich!".

    Please continue! I can't wait to see how things pan out for Kurt and how a typical high-school breakup could turn such an optimistic character into a raging alcoholic.

    Ohhh, snap. Kurt is, by far, the most sharp-tongued drunk ever. And I love this rendition of him. I can't wait to read more of this; you're doing a splendid job.
