NOTICE: No part of this story is to be posted anywhere without the author’s permission. Thanks. Feedback and constructive critiques are welcome, too. Just email me or send me a tweet.

CATEGORY: Hetero Erotica (consensual, believe it or not).

PAIRING: Sabretooth / Jean Grey

RATING: NC-17 for “foul” language and graphic sex.

WARNING: If you haven’t read any Marvel Comics or seen the X-Men movies, the Notes and History sections may help. This story involves some canon Sabretooth misogynistic sexist stuff, but for Sabey fans, that’s not going to be a shock. Sabretooth is a gleeful villain and I don’t plan to redeem him here; if you like evil main characters, enjoy!

SUMMARY: Jean Grey and Victor Creed end up creating a strange New Year’s Eve tradition. It began in Nepal. It continues in New York City, when Victor takes a shot at a rematch. What began as two people trying to scratch an itch slowly has the chance to grow into an opportunity to communicate with each other – something that neither of them thought they’d ever want.

TIMELINE: This story occurs after the events in my “Shattered Silence”, “Vices and Virtues”, and “Crawfish Tango” tales. Future chapters will probably weave through my other Sabretooth stories. My Sabretooth is based on the blond mutant in the comics.

NOTES: Yes, this is a bald excuse to toss them in bed solely because it amused me. In essence, it’s a mutant annual booty-call that may develop into more whether either of them want it to or not, LOL. Installments are going to be like little mini-fics, and will be written whenever the muse strikes. Victor Creed (alias: Sabretooth) has most of the same attributes and mutant gifts as his long-time nemesis, Wolverine. Mutant abilities: healing factor, heightened senses, retractable claws on hands and feet, and long canines (upper and lower). At the time of this story, Victor possesses an Adamantium skeleton and claws (his second round of it, via a re-launched Weapon X program, a group that also enhanced his healing factor). It has often been established by Marvel Comics that Sabretooth is stronger than Wolverine, but that is open for debate. Contrary to his appearance and manner making him seem stupid, Victor is intelligent. He can operate (and infiltrate) complex government systems and fortresses, and weapons. He has flown the X-Men’s Blackbird jet, and accomplished many other delicate missions that others might think him incapable of. Jean Grey probably needs little introduction. A powerhouse among the X-Men most of her life, Jean is a telepath and telekinetic, who also is the host of the cosmic entity known as the Phoenix. She can fly and is probably second only to Xavier in telepathic power. There may not be anyone stronger in telekinesis, and the Phoenix force makes her an adversary most wouldn’t want to cross.

HISTORY: As a boy, Victor’s mutation showed up early, prior to puberty. His memories of family (which may be false implants) involve a lot of abuse. His father repeatedly removed his claws and fangs with tools, including chopping off his hands. Eventually, his father chained him in the basement. Victor may have killed a brother, and his mother before eventually escaping. It is assumed he killed his father. Due to his healing factor, he is older than he looks, and his exact birth year is unknown; it is estimated to be between 1868 and 1885. For my story, I’m going with 1868. According to Marvel Comics, Victor is not Wolverine’s father or brother. Victor was a part of the same original Weapon X program (with memory implants and blocks) and the same special ops teams with Wolverine, also working with him for the CIA in the 1960s. Victor has had at least one known child, a human named Graydon Creed (mother: Mystique); Graydon grew up hating mutants, especially his parents. Victor may have other unknown children due to his proclivity for rape. Victor has been a member of many groups on both sides of the law, most often working as a freelance assassin. His murderous bloodlust became an uncontrolled addiction that drove him mad for a time, relieved only by “the glow” (a blast of brain band-aid from a telepath). When his “pet” telepath Birdy was killed by Graydon, he ended up a prisoner of the X-Men while Xavier attempted to cure his madness by making him face his mental and moral horrors. Realizing that he would be cured only to be punished for his crimes, he escaped. Wolverine stopped his planned rampage in the X-Mansion by sending a claw through Victor’s brain. It rendered him a seemingly harmless and childlike creature for a time. During that period, Victor was kept in a holographic “jungle” in the Danger Room, visited clandestinely by Tabitha who wanted to believe he could be redeemed from his evil past. When he healed, Victor kept his renewed psychopathic nature a secret for a time. Escaping the X-Men again by tricking Tabitha (and nearly eviscerating Psylocke in the process), it is learned that due to the claw through his brain, he no longer needs “the glow”; also, it is almost impossible now for a telepath to sense, track, or control him. The X-Men recapture Victor and hand him over to the government. He ends up doing a turn as a member of X-Factor with Mystique (both of them wearing control collars), though it was later revealed that he had been a “sleeper agent”, meant to kill members of the team that the government couldn’t control. He was forced back into the re-launched Weapon X program (where he was bonded with Adamantium again) but then escaped them. At present, he is tired of teamwork and causes, and has returned to working as a freelance assassin, available to the highest paying clientele. He prefers clients who allow him to be “creative”. I am borrowing the parts of Victor’s history that serve my story and may at times ignore other parts. At this time, he believes the telepath Psi-Borg has removed the memory blocks and false memories of the Weapon X program, but again, some of these memories may be real or false, as serves my story; in particular, memories of his mother may still be implants in this story. Jean Grey was taken to Professor Xavier as a child by her parents, so that he could help her learn to control her telepathy and help her past the trauma of feeling the emotions of her childhood friend as she died. Jean spent most of her life with the X-Men and an early incarnation of X-Factor, fell in love with Scott “Cyclops” Summers when they were teens, and later developed a lingering attraction to her teammate Wolverine. Jean’s relationship and marriage with Cyclops ended in an ugly devastating mess after she discovered his affair with the telepath Emma Frost. Soon after, she died (again) when she was killed by Xorn posing as Magneto (see New X-Men Vol. 1 # 150) and now she’s returned (again). She actually gave Scott and Emma her blessing after the events in #150. For the sake of my fic stories, I’m ignoring all the “White Phoenix” and “White Hot Room” junk that follows her resurrection. She is merely keeping a low profile and helping people on her own, unwilling to return to the X-Men for now.

DISCLAIMER: None of this is real, it didn’t happen. The characters (except for the OCs), locations, situations, terminology and history involved here, I am borrowing from Marvel Comics. All song lyrics or quotes are credited to the artists/speakers, some are abbreviated. No money has or will be made with this, unless Kevin Feige lets me turn it into a novel someday.

FEEDBACK: Please post a review/comment if you enjoy the story. Also, if you have any questions or suggestions in your comment, I will respond as soon as I can in here, by email, or by tweet. Thanks for reading! – AnonGrimm (@MET_Fic) (anongrimm-blog.tumblr.com)
