Head canon: I am thinking of incorporating some elements of the Night Watch movie into Anton's past but relying mostly on the books for canon. I like the idea of him being a jealous husband who goes to a witch to get his wife back. The witch, Daria, tells him his wife is pregnant with another man's child and it must miscarry. She can do this but he must accept the sin. He agrees but has trouble forcing himself to do the actual deed (unlike the movie) and is prevented from completing the Curse by the arrival of Tiger Cub and her team of Night Watch, who arrest the witch. The team is surprised when Anton reacts to their presence and are about to erase his memory when Boris Ivanovich arrives and declares Anton to be an Other and takes him on as his apprentice (as in the book). 

I like the movie prologue as it hints at the Darkness Anton has as well as the Light. It also helps explain Anton's hesitation with Svetlana, having been burned by love before. Obviously this would have been a young marriage, since he would have been 23 when this happens. Foolish young love.

Night Watch OOMs:
Tempted to at least do a short version of the above as a prologue.

Not sure if I want to do any of the cases from Night Watch. If do the prologue OOM, I think I should at least do the final case to show Anton adjusted to being an Other and accepting being a field operative.

And now I am tempted yet again to do the prologue and have Anton come to Milliways during the first case when he is hopped up on medicines and pig blood to attune himself to vampires.

Day Watch OOMs: (Ignoring the first case and jumping to the second)
01-Anton has been getting dire hints from his music that someone he knows is doomed. It is vague and he sulks about until Tiger Cub drags him to a pub to cheer him up. I don't know if he will tell her about the vague warnings but they are about her, of course.

02-Anton arrives too late to save Tiger Cub, dives into the Gloom to try and rescue her but fails, getting not one glimpse of the battle mage (can't mess with what has already been written). Wake at some bar with field team.

03-Maybe Anton finds his way to Milliways while on his trip to Prague in the third case?

Things to figure out:
Once Milliways finds Anton, does Boris Ivanovich know about Milliways? If not, how does Anton hide it from him? Perhaps Olga makes some sort of specialized amulet that only hides knowledge of Milliways and only works for Anton? Or maybe Bar or another patron provides one?

Poor Movie!Anton - his life takes a turn for the crappy because he did go through with it. Katya will be more than happy to keep all that from happening (Anton, your son becomes a brat in that version of events, and he refuses to stay in one place and be watched properly.)

It's hard to say if Boris doesn't know, or if he just chooses to not let anyone know he knows.

Yeeeah, the movies are a lot of 'oh, that's cool, and I like how they mashed the books together and OH GOD NO THAT'S WRONG. WRONG. BAD DIRECTOR, BAD. Ooooh, cool twist, brah'.

Plus Olga gets to be all warrioresque in movie!Daywatch, which is awesome. And the bodyswitch. LOVE the bodyswitch, book and movie. (Book more, for bonus references to use of tampons)

:D I'm up for most anything - having canonmates is awesome! And I need to get a new copy of Nightwatch - my old one is still on walkabout.

Tag, if that works at all - it's sort of a mash-up of the movie vs. book arrests - less bashing in, more bluntness?

Beautiful! I'll tag back in the morning as I need to go to bed. =]

Also I have Anton's app written as well as his profile, so I am all set for April.

I've got to run back to work, but question for when I get back: option a) Poor poor Anton wakes up to a bored-looking Katya who's waiting to do a memory wipe while her partners interrogate a mildly (to moderately, oops) concussed witch, or b) Anton requires rescue from the Gloom that he slipped into when slipping out of consciousness?

(She's never going to let him live down the fact he fainted. Ever.)

[ooc: Y'know, when I picked this canon, it was because I was convinced it was obscure enough that no one would know if I was screwing it up. So much for that!

I can't wait to see what you do with this. :D ]
