Re: Unexpected Angels (COMPLETE!!!)

Epilogue The wooden pirate ship hovered over Braddock Manor, casting its shade over the party below. A year had passed since their adventure with 'Taube and, while this party was, on its face, a birthday celebration for 'Taube's one-year-old daughter, really it was more of a reunion. Otherworld's po...

Re: Unexpected Angels (nearly complete!)

"I suppose I should welcome you to Otherworld," she said, striding toward them. "I'm Rowena, Head Historian here. You must be Forge, Wolverine, and Nightcrawler." She shook hands with each of them, lingering slightly when she came to Nightcrawler. "Mistress Roma has spoken often of you, sir." She sm...

Re: Unexpected Angels (nearly complete!)

Chapter Fifteen Despite her speed, Shagreen managed to duck out of 'Taube's grasp and kick open the door to the Captain's quarters. Captain Barbacoa was there, half the treasure in his chest already stuffed into his baggy clothing. He was holding Shagreen's staff, and when the sorcerer burst in, the...

Re: Unexpected Angels (nearly complete!)

It's been a work in progress for about seven years, if you can believe it, but it's nearing its end now. Hooray! So, here are the last few chapters. Then, I just need to write out the epilogue and t...

AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser Image

I've always been drawn to X-Men because there was a bit more complexity to it. Magneto vs Xavier has more to it than Batman vs Joker. (Batman = good. Joker = bad.) Actually, I find the Joker/Batman relationship to be quite complex, particularly the moral question of 'who created whom' (sort of a pa...

Hi Everyone! The deadline for this challenge is fast approaching.
