|The Fall and Rise of Creed Diskence by KosagiNoLegion|
|This story draws you in,the pase slow and almost dreamy at times. I have never heard of this show, but it did not matter as I read and began to adore this story. There are no instant fixes or anything like that. The main characters have issues to work through and 72 chapters in, they're still working through them. This is a wonderful read for those who like development and plot.|
As per the authoress, Black Cat was a manga series that ran in Shonen Jump over the last few years. Offbeat and off the wall, it's the kind of story that might happen if Quentin
Tarantino were forced to work with Jackie Chan. Though utilizing numerous manga and anime cliches, it always managed to take those cliches and twist them
into entirely different paths.
Among the many cliches Yabuki-san used was the theme of estranged partners battling each other. Except, Yabuki-san turned the story on its ear by having
the villanous Creed Diskence be desperate to have the hero, Train Heartnet join him. As the story progressed, the shonen-ai potential of that sub-plot
became more and more intriguing, and while I doubt Yabuki-san ever intended it that way, somehow it took a wrong turn at Alberquerque in my brain.
Thus this fic. It is Shonen-Ai and most definitely an Alternate Universe, as I have given Creed a background entirely different than the one Yabuki-san
ended up giving him. It is also a redemption fic, because Creed's madness was the sort that could never be healed on his own power. The story begins at
a point where Train, instead of permitting one of Creed's lieutenants to escape, follows her through her teleport warp and straight into the Hoshi's stronghold.
From here on, things take an entirely different turn from how Yabuki-san ended his series.
I will be posting author's notes at my Live Journal ), so as not to take up space here. Answers to any questions or comments and various trivia involved
in creating this massive piece of fanfic will be posted there.
