Author has written 11 stories for X-Men.

Hello, everybody.

I've finally returned after a long break with the single objective of posting the unfinished stories which, in the meantime, I have mostly finished (offline). I'm afraid I disliked some scenes in previous published chapters (mostly in the Irbis saga) so I adjusted them. There were no big changes, just... some improvements.


My main story is about Sabretooth and an Original Character.

The series was originally influenced by Rurouni Kenshin's (otherwise known as Samurai X) first OVA, where he was a young killing machine, hoping that his killings might help the poor suffering people. Nevertheless, the fact that he was a killer was slowly erasing all his humanity away, leaving only the emotionless killing personna. To help him, his boss finds a girl, Tomoe, willing to be Kenshin's "sword sheath". Thanks to her, he discovers he's something more than just a killer.

Creed, however, is a psycopath who enjoys embracing his killing personna way too much. How could a "sheath" for his claws ever survive?


»» Irbis-Sabretooth Cycle (complete)

1st story: Long Way from Home - Sabretooth storms a secret government laboratory and finds himself an efficient housekeeper. Complete.

2nd story: Of Bravery and Cowardice - Sabretooth decides to break in his new housekeeper, turning her into an obedient employee. Complete.

3rd story: Grand Tour Polaroids - Sabretooth has a new vic waiting for him in Albany, NY, and decides to take a scenic route. Complete.

4th story: Dancing to the Sound of Death - Friends of Humanity, X-Men, random mercenaries and hitmen, general mayhem and bloodbaths... Irbis finally gets a taste of Sabretooth's life. Complete.

5th story: Taking the Tiger by Its Fangs - Creed decided Irbis will keep his bed warm from now on; she decided she'd rather have her own bed somewhere else and he's welcome to keep it warm. So she takes off to New York to get herself a place he can crash whenever he wishes... but ends up in a half-way job at a school for mutants. What could possibly go wrong? Complete.

Stand Alone: House of M adness - Based off Sabretooth's life in the House of M storyline. It explains why he went crazy in Canada, after killing Senator Kelly, and started killing everyone in sight. The end also explains why the Black Panther managed to kill him so easily. Naturally, it ties in with my Irbis stories ('Taking the Tiger' ends in February, M-Day happens the same year in November). Complete.


»» 'Taming of the Hearts' Cycle (on-going)

This cycle is set in an AU that diverges from the canon comic books shortly after M-Day. The main heart in need of taming will be Sabretooth's, but he's not alone. Logan, Jubilee, Rogue, Gambit and even Kitty will have a chance to quiet down the wild side in their hearts. Oh, and my OC, naturally (former known as Irbis and now known simply as Isabel).

The first story will not feature Sabretooth at all, but will rather set the stage to the adventures ahead. Each story will have a definite theme and focus, but they all tie together as a few threats and goals will carry on from one story to the next, all the way till the last dangling line is cut short and the wildest heart of them all becomes... well, as close to tame as a sabretooth tiger can get.

1st story: The Proposal - Remy and Rogue try to find the happiness they once had and have since lost, even though Jubilee crashes their private party. But it's all for a good cause and let's not forget that some apparent evils turn out to be godsends down the line. Complete.

2nd story: The Ressurrection - Sabretooth returns to the world of the living and he has a mission for the X-Men. Weekly updates starting on June 10th! Being 23 chapters long, it should end in late October - early November.

Scheduled...

3rd story: Double Dealings - Sabretooth is still a man on a mission but he'll be facing three problematic fronts. Meanwhile, Mystique finally sets her plans concerning Rogue's children in deadly motion. It's 19 chapters long so it should start in early November and end in March 2018.

4th story: Disasters come in Threes (tentative title) - Half-way written. Different levels of disaster will visit upon Jubilee, Sabretooth and Rogue. It will start being published in March 2018 and it should be finished in the Summer of 2018.

5th story: Fighting for Happy Endings (tentative title) - Plotting stage. Everyone wants a happy ending, be it steady couples like Kitty and Piotr, angsty couples like Remy and Anna, or even the random psycopath like Creed. Unfortunately, not everyone can get their heart's desire. It will start being published in the Summer of 2018.

Yes, when I pick up a saga, I pick up a long saga. Short sagas are no fun.


»» Wolverine: Origin Spin-offs

If you have not read the mini-series detailing the true origins of Wolverine, I suggest you do so before reading these stories. The wonderful site uncannyxmen.net has got the summaries. Just check the menu for 'Issue Information', then 'Issue Summaries'. Scroll down the alphabetical list until you find 'Origin #1 - 6' and enjoy the reading.

I've started writing long before the X-Men films came along. The moment I finished the first 'Origin' mini-series, I decided that it gave the perfect reason for Creed's long and ingrained hate for Logan. Therefore, the two stories below grew out of the mini-series and set my personal canon for the origins of Victor Creed and Logan. I know their origins have since been explored in the comics but I still feel that the misadventures between young James and Dog set the simplest and most seemless origin of the Wolverine-Sabretooth feud.

1st story: When Two Worlds Collide - Up station and down station were never meant to mingle. For when they do, tragedy follows. Complete.

2nd story: The Underdog - Of Dogs and men: the winding road out of boyhood and into a grown-up's world of hate. Or of how Victor Creed and his hate for Wolverine were born. Based on the first Origin series. Complete.
