The Bird of Darkness is my current main action fic, started on May 14, 2004. It features the biggest cast up to
date as far as my fics are concerned, reaching out into the Street Fighter and King of Fighters universes while stringing
together lots of original characters, moves and storylines. This story is actually the 5th in a series of fics entitled
the New Archives, originally to conclude a fanfiction eulogy that had been losing steam since after the third installment.
However, with this fic, I've been able to set my sights back on bringing original action and purpose into the fics and plan
to keep trecking into the Archives. However, this story is also the first of three fics etertwined together, the other
two being KAMITA ROMINOSHA and Crimson Angel, all together entitled the Secrets of the Illuminati saga.
The story of Bird of Darkness revolves around the resurrection of the crime syndicate Shadowloo in the year 2002 after
its fall due to some street fighters years ago. Normally known for being led by the intimidating M. Bison, no one knows
that the resurrection is actually being led by a mysterious but powerful woman by the name of Raven, whom which little is
known about her. She is rumored to be the next host body for Bison, but its noteworthy to see that Raven's tactics at
bringing down its opponents are a whole lot more tactical than that of Bison. The Shadowloo of now, named Neo Shadowloo,
has caused many forces of fighters to ban together in an effort to bring down the powerful orginaztion once and for all, but
this time things will not be as easy is it has always been.
This story's style is mostly about pure action, and can be found here...
