I'm afraid I'll be undergoing a period that will make going online a bit tricky. I may have to spend a couple, if not actually a few, days in a row offline, and these offline periods may come and go without warning. This means I won't be able to maintain my update schedule. As such, I will go on a one month hiatus.
I'm sorry for kicking off 2018 with a hiatus, especially with stories running, but it can't be helped.
I wish you all a great 2018 and... see you all in February.
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?

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.

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.
Collection of Sketches: Hidden years - Sketches of events that happen in between 'Taking the Tiger' and 'The Proposal'. It's basically a collection of character studies for the relationship between Sabretooth and the OC Irbis, while setting up a canon for events and habits to make sure the 'Taming of the Hearts' cycle progresses smoothly. It will be uploaded as an extra, next to the actual plotted stories. Uploaded twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays.
»» '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. Complete.
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 in deadly motion. Weekly updates starting on June 10th! It's 19 chapters long so it should 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.
