The strongest, best X-Men fics I have read are Valerie J's Betrayal story arc and her Thick as Thieves story arc. In both, the writing is superb, the characterization is excellent, and the knowledge and reworking of canon is above par. Remy LeBeau (Gambit) plays a starring role in both series. For those who love reading and writing this character, her works should be required reading.
