    Why is Laura talking to Dakken? I haven't been reading X-factor but I vaugly remember that they are trying to show him as less of an a-hole there. Still why him and not... well anyone else?

    The less you think of the actual ramifications that ordeal would have on a person the better. We accept that things like humour, romance and friendship are tools to keep them sane but it's not enough. They would have gone mad. Finished the mission perhaps but still mad.

    Why wouldnt she talk to Daken? He's her brother of sorts and they have a relationship. He is one of the few that she is close to on Krakoa that also has a relationship with Gabby (and we know she sought him out when Laura was missing). It makes sense that she would go to him about Gabby

    Romance wouldn't save people from going mad locked up for 500 years.

    I haven't been reading New Mutants either. Witch I guess had that Gabby and Daken scene you are mentioning.

    The Daken I remember reading would not be a person one comes to after an event such as this. Brother or not. So when did they become close enough for this?

    They've actually got a pretty good relationship. Like one of the only healthy relationships he has.

    Context is king.

    X-23's most basic surface level characteristic that any idiot should grasp: Stoicism.
    I don't demand that her every minor appearance be a nuance in-depth examination of her character, but is it to much to ask she be written in Archetype?! This is storytelling 101! If you want people to stay invested in a character, you need to, at the bare minimum, write them such a way that they can plausibly be believed to be the same character!

    Everything started with subtle exchange in Collision. Daken was still a-hole, but there was chemistry between them (family, not romance - not native to english so I'm not sure if that's the way to say it).
    Then you have Wolverines, where Daken got seriously hurt, Laura was by his side in "hospital" or something, telling him, that he's the only family she has left - that was after Death of Wolverine and before Gabby first appearance and I think that was the first time they genuinely were shown caring for each other.
    In All New Wolverine it's shown even more, they are continuing more brother-sister relationship in Immune and Orphans of X arcs.

    As it comes to Rang10 - ignore them, whatever canon they might have it's only in their head.
    While I don't like idea of a paring, accusing Synch of those things is disgusting.
    Even more disgusting is coloring Laura as only a victim, without power to do anything against someone who wants romance with her.
    Mind you, this is appreciation thread, and you shouldn't talk mean things against character thread is about.

    What I really like about their relationship is that while Laura genuinely cares for him (and vice-versa; making Laura and Gabby probably the only two people he genuinely does) and she's willing to give him some benefit of the doubt, she's also smart enough to pick up on his BS and not get blinded by trust. Like when Daken tried to flirt with/manipulate Megan in Orphans of X and Laura put her foot down.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    The New X-Men: Can't let you grow up because you make everyone look old. But we can sure as @#$% mindlessly kill you off for shock value!

    Reading all of this, I'm starting to believe Daken, Laura, and Gabby have a better/healthier relationship with each other than with Logan.
