Mystique gave birth to Nightcrawler but at one point became a surrogate/adoptive mother toward Rogue (I think she changed her shape and that's why Rogue didn't recognize her later in life) I think that's their history.

They see themselves as a brother and a sister because they both consider Mystique their mother. However, they are not biologically related in any way. Mystique is Nightcrawler's biological mother, but she abandoned him as a baby. Later, she adopted Rogue as her daughter. Rogue and Nightcrawler began to consider themselves to be siblings when they learned about their connection.

So, to be clear, Rogue's biological parents were called Owen and Priscilla, but she ran away from home as a child and was then brought up by Mystique and Destiny. Nightcrawler is the biological son of a mutant called Azazel and Mystique (who was married to a human called Christian Wagner at the time) but he was raised in a circus by Margali Szardos.

this might sound funny but some fans even pair Rogue with Kurt in fanfics sometimes.

Not by blood and maybe not even by law, but since they both have Mystique as a mother of one sort or another, they consider each other siblings/brother and sister.

come to think of it did Mystique ever legally adopt Rouge?

edit: apologies for my atrocious grammar

@Avenging-X-Bolt: She probably has the adoption papers, but whether they are themselves legal, well possibly not. Not sure though, can't remember a story where this has been clarified or not.

@LoganRogue24: I know they're not BLOOD relations, but I'd STILL rather see her end up with Wolverine!

Mystique is like... mother of all mutants, though. Nightcrawler has plenty of well-known biological brothers and sisterz.

Err.. nevermind. I got her confused with Magneto, hehe. Just Nightcrawler and Graydon Creed.
