Logan kissed Rogue once to lend her his healing powers; it was during the story of his and Mariko's near-wedding. I'm not sure, but Rogue may have been injured defending Mariko; that was why Logan first began to accept Rogue as an X-Man. Can anyone recall that scene?
How about Storm as a friend who stands up to Cyclops when she believes he's wrong, who doesn't blindly follow him but dares to challenge his judgment? And what if Scott respects her enough to listen?

So, basically...screw chemistry or if they work as a couple, or even if they particularly like each other, as long as Storm pops out another uber-mutant kid?
Wow, Sinister's got nothing on some of the folks here.
For the record, before he met Madelyne, I thought there could have been a chance for Scott and Ororo. When the X-Men were living on Julienne Cay in the Bermuda Triangle, they seemed to have some moments which leaned a little towards the romantic.
But then he did meet Madelyne, and I loved their relationship. Scott overcame his feelings for Jean and got with someone strong and unwilling to put up with crap...basically, the perfect person to keep him sane.
For her part, Storm underwent some fundamental changes (Mohawk phase) and grew closer to Logan, who was in turn mourning his enforced estrangement of Mariko Yashida. I would have loved to see their friendship develop into a relationship, or seen Logan and Mariko get back together. Both pairings make a lot more sense than Logan/Jean IMO.
Now, with everything that's happened since, including Jean's latest death, Scott's relationship with Emma and the way they've both grown as characters, and Storm's farce of a token pairing with the Black Panther? I don't think it works.
Then again, if this is an alternate universe, then different pairings can exist where they didn't before.
