Clashing Accounts of Rogue and Gambit's First Meeting Explained by Writer Kelly Thompson - IGN
The Colossus/Rogue relationship was dropped quicker than that building Muir Island, a mutant sanctuary, is taken over by the Shadow King. Everyone knows that Shadow King wants to take over Storm and/or make her his slave. But for me it seemed like the same kind of relationship between. One of the most realistic has to be the relationship between Gambit and After being under the control of the Shadow King, Rogue couldn't.
Rogue kissing Magneto, after choosing him over Gambit.
Rogue kissing Deadpool, which led to the restoration of Wonder Man. Joseph kissing Rogue on the forehead after revealing a device that could dampen her powers. So with that info dump out, they get down to explaining how they first met. Funny thing is, in all the time that the two have been a couple -ishthis little point has never been shown. Before that could take place, the Shadow King story that Chris Claremont had been building towards for years had to be fast-tracked so all of the various X-Men characters could be brought back together, with a wheelchair-bound Professor X in charge, in the X-Mansion.
This included Gambit, who was a new addition to the recently reformed X-Men the ones with the blue and gold X-Men uniformsas well as Rogue who had recently popped back up after vanishing during the end of the Australian period, had her first fling with Magneto, and finally had the Carol Danvers persona purged from her psyche.
During the actual story, the two do not cross paths whatsoever.
It was an odd thing for him to think, but really worked with his overconfidence in himself and his abilities. The thing is, with that gap between the defeat of the Shadow King on Muir Island and the Blue team going on their maiden voyage against the Acolytes, the first encounter between Rogue and Gambit was skipped.

Not only is it an ideal way to bring the two back together, it forces them to confront all the baggage between them. A therapist asks them to describe their first meeting and both of them give contrasting stories.
Rogue says their first meeting was on Muir Island. According to Gambit, they met the night before and ended up kissing. It makes their relationship nuanced because Rogue and Gambit have their own perception of a crucial meeting.
Everyone has their own perspective and depending on the moment, they only remember what they want to. Upon reuniting with Lector, Sting cried tears of joy. After Lector's capture by Minerva, Sting's personality has changed considerably; he is now much more serious and solemn.
This is exemplified by his attack on Bacchus: Rather than attacking Bacchus with his usual gusto, Sting attacked him quickly and quietly, completely devoid of emotion.
Rogue and Frosch
Twin Dragons of Sabertooth. Originally a dragon slayer from four hundred years past, Rogue was sent to the future to assist in the destruction of Acnologia. Rogue is a slim young man of average height with rather messy black hair, which almost reaches down to his shoulders, along with some strands pointing upwards on top of his head and a prominent tuft obscuring most of his forehead.
His hair is later brushed to the right side of his face covering up his right eye. He has red eyes with slit pupils similar to that of a snake's, like Gajeel Redfox's eyes. Following the battle against the Dragons, Rogue gains a thin scar across the bridge of his nose. Rogue wears a long, black cape reaching down to his feet, with golden edges, a much lighter collar circling his neck, and a prominent, white ribbon hanging down on his chest.
Such cape bears a light Sabertooth's symbol on it, almost in correspondence to Rogue's left shoulder. Below it, Rogue seems to wear a plain greyish blueish tinted white shirt, with prominent brown cuffs and what looks like a large metal band circling each of his biceps.
Rogue (comics) - Wikipedia
From a light sash circling his waist hangs a distinctive, pale blue cloth waistguard, consisting of four long pieces of cloth reaching down below his knees. Each of these pieces is adorned by a large, dark cross with fan-shaped arms. Below such waistguard, Rogue wears a pair of armored boots, which, on the front, bear plates bearing the very same motif which appears on the waistguard. Rogue is the quieter of the Twin Dragon Slayers.
