So much has changed in the last few years!
I've really been blessed to have worked with some great writers the last little while, particularly Canucklehead Cowgirl, who has launched an entire universe with me based on Marvel comics where we fix what's wrong with comics and also make our crackships happen, yay! The main thing that you should take away from this profile is that you should read the 714 Universe, which I've outlined below for ease of access.
If you want to follow me on tumblr, I'm magnetocerebro. If you want to read my Real Life books, they are called Lady Thief and Birthright Unknown. I also just released the first book of a series at the end of summer 2017. The series is called the "Halfsie" series, and the first book is called "Rebel Rendezvous."
The 714 Universe
So, as you know, Marvel has been screwing up some of its best characters lately. Also, Kate Bishop and Kurt Wagner are totally the best accidental crackship of all time. Therefore, CC and I are totally running with this thing.
Based heavily (but not TOO heavily, since Marvel has been stupid lately) on the 616 Marvel comics universe, the 714 is our attempt to give our characters the chance to be happy and to fix a lot of the things that are making them unhappy in the first place... and then to throw adventures and danger at them, because let's be real. They're superheroes.
Everything starts when Wolverine returns from the dead and runs into Kate Bishop, who invites herself along to his nonsense. Of course, no return from the dead would be complete for Wolverine without his best friend, Nightcrawler, and when Kurt and Kate hit it off, well, Logan's just glad to see his friend happy.
But things only get better (and sometimes worse) from there as these three settle into their lives at the Xavier Institute. There is romance. There is danger. There are aliens, robots, politicians, tracksuits, magic... you name it, they face it.
The X-Men continue to grow into their own families as time goes on, and we even get to bring in a second generation of soon-to-be heroes! X-Men like Scott and Jubilee each get their own families... and even Kate's mentor, Clint, is getting into the spirit of leaving a legacy!
((This list is in reading order if you want to move chronologically.))
Set before most of the events of the 714, this is the story of how Scott Summers went from leader of the X-Men with Emma Frost to being engaged to a schoolteacher in Anchorage, Alaska, away from the superhero life.
(This can be read either before the rest of the 714 or before Volume 3, where Scott is reintroduced into the main story.)
In which our Golden Trio meets up and goes on an epic trip around the world, not only getting to know each other a little better (and setting off the best romance ever) but reintroducing Wolverine to the land of the living!
In which Kate Bishop finds out just what kind of insanity the X-Men have to deal with on a daily basis. Also, we introduce our second crackship, which totally, surprisingly, works.
In which Kate, Kurt, Logan, and Jubilee all get on board Noh-Varr's ship, the Marvel, for some adventures in space. And also there is Scott Summers. No, not the de-aged version from the current comics. Give us credit. This is the real deal.
In which Kate is accidentally turned into a four-and-a-half-year-old girl. It is pretty much the cutest thing of all time, and she instantly attaches to Wolverine, her new bodyguard.
In which Scott gets married, Noh's past comes back to bite him in a big way, Kate freaks out when she realizes she and Kurt have been together for a year, and a character from CC's 906 universe makes a debut!
In which Noh-Varr and Jubilee are loving the engaged life, but they're the only ones riding high as Scott's lifelong shadow, Logan and K's past tormentors, Kurt's family, and Kate's old archnemesis ALL want a piece of this cake. Our kids're gonna be busy...
After Jubilee and Noh-Varr get married (with a slight pause for intergalactic meddlers because honestly what X-Men wedding ever goes off without a hitch), K and Kate are facing the pressure to tie the knot with their guys. And you might be surprised who blinks first.
The Summers twins arrive, and with two weddings on the horizon, life seems pretty good... except for the fact that everyone wants to kill our favorite X-Men. But a new addition to the mansion might just help ease the damage of the attacks against the team.
There's a wedding scheduled for the end of the year, but the other wedding that's supposed to take place doesn't even have a solid date yet. Can Logan and K's friends convince them to finally tie the knot, or will they need a tiny, tiny push?
Now that Logan and K are married, it's time for Kate and Kurt to take their turn. But it turns out a few bad guys have decided to stick their noses into the newly-forming families, which is going to complicate things for the fledgling next generation.
Jubilee wants to tell Noh-Varr the good news: they're expecting! Unfortunately, the Kree bust up her planned announcement with an invasion, and when Noh, K, and Clint Barton are all taken prisoner in the ensuing war, there is a real possibility that Jubilee, Logan, or Jess might end up raising their kids completely alone.
After the Kree invasion, people are looking for someone to blame. And as usual, it looks like the X-Men are bearing the brunt of the public ire, to the point that things are getting dangerous for mutants in a way they haven't been in a long time.
With the feral members of the team hidden away in safety, the rest of the X-Men throw everything they have into taking down Department H and dismantling the Weapon X threat... sometimes to the detriment of their own health and safety.
Kate gets to experience time travel for the first time. It's totally something you have to check off your list as an X-Man. But considering her first time travel experience is to a terrible world ruled by Azazel? She'd rather skip this one, thanks.
While the main universe follows Kate and Kurt's time-travelling adventures, Jubilee and Noh also have their own awful future to face: this one ruled by a power-crazed Maria Hill.
A new group of teenagers is rising through the ranks and learning to become X-Men, and the older X-Men are settling down with beautiful families. But with all the new faces, an old enemy is still poking his nose in.
The 907 Universe
So, this one started out on CC's profile as an exercise in seeing where Scott and Logan went wrong in their relationship with each other and has continued to grow, with an adorable teenage Scott getting totally adopted by Logan and then by K, CC's love interest for Logan who is the best ever. And of course, once we introduce Charles Xavier and the X-Men, that really sort of changes... everything, honestly. This is mostly directed by CC, and I help a lot with Scott because he is my favorite X-Man, so I'm a cowriter, but, like, 70/30 split here, y'all.
Part 1: What If ? Episode 907: Logan, memoryless and fresh off of leaving the Hudsons, finds a young man in an orphanage being experimented on by a red-eyed creep. And you know he's not going to let that stand. So... save the kid... and then what?
Part 2: The Rise of Cyclops: Now that Scott is officially Logan's son, he wants to do right by his new family... but that means when he can't control his powers, he's a giant red beacon to draw in trouble. So, he turns to Charles Xavier for help.
The 495 Universe
Continuing that vein of taking characters that we like and giving them the home and love they deserve, we decided to do this for Clint Barton. Because Hawkeye.
Anyway, we definitely de-aged him here, as you'll see down the line when he meets up with other heroes who in the comics are younger than him... but he's so much fun as a little kid and we like this dynamic better.
Part 1: On the Run Together: Clint, running away from abusive foster home situations, runs into K, who is herself running away from Department H. They team up together, but they can't run forever...
Part 2: I Don't Want to Be Saved: Even though Clint adores his new mom, he has to admit, she calls down a lot of trouble. And when Department H is right on their tail... maybe a little superheroic help is necessary.
Part 3: The Prince of the Tower: Living with the X-Men was great and all, but Department H and Sabretooth still found Clint and his new mom. Maybe the Avengers can help keep them safe.
Part 4: Thicker Than Blood: Clint and Barney Barton might not have any powers, but their new family is chock full of them. And that on its own comes with a lot of problems.
The 664 Universe
You guessed it: we're saving ALL the kids! Okay, within reason. But we definitely feel like with Noh-Varr, his entire introduction to Earth was horrible. And that's something we can fix. So this time, instead of being tortured and kicked around for most of his first memories on Earth, let's set him up with the X-Men right off the bat...
Part 1: Culture Shock: Noh-Varr's ship has crash-landed in this reality. Everyone he knows and loves is dead, and he, as the only survivor, has been captured and threatened with dissection. So it's a good thing the X-Men came to investigate matters... even if dealing with the Phoenix and navigating Earth culture is not that easy either.
The 867 Universe
In 2015-16, I also had the chance to be part of a collaboration that you should totally read called In the End You Always Kneel that's Hunger Games/Marvel. It was a blast to be part of! The sequel, When Blood Calls For Blood, went live at the end of May 2017. Nickenny, who had been leading the charge, had to step back for personal reasons and asked me and CC to take over the fic, so we did. We couldn't just leave all our new writer friends hanging!
At the end of 2016, after ITEYAK ended, CC and I (and a few others) decided to play in that Marvel/Hunger Games universe a little more, since the ending was not at all what we had expected and we had all these IDEAS that we just couldn't let go to waste. So... we're writing a whole new universe there, too. This one's the 867 universe, the first part of which is called There Will Be No Kneeling. Despite the fact that we're taking over the "main" story now, this will keep going, because darnit, we like our Marvel-only story :P We just finished the second installment:
Volume 2: The End of Childish Games: The second Avenger Games, featuring tributes like Scott Summers, Clara Creed, Kamala Khan, Miles Morales, Bucky Barnes, and more.
Volume 3: The Fall of a Titan: With the Quarter Quell behind them, SHIELD declares a revolution against President Thanos, but taking the mighty Titan down is harder than you'd think.
Volume 4: Nothing's Fair in Love and War: Now that Thanos is dead, Hydra is trying to fill the power vacuum he left behind. But our heroes aren't going to let that stand.
