14 Works in Pre-John Wick (2014)

Listing Works

    Summary

    This work takes place in a (so far) largely Canon-compliant universe, at the time when Jardani Jovonovich (John Wick) first joins a unit of the Tarasov Russian mafia in New York City. It is post-Ruska Roma, post-Marine Corps, but pre-Helen and long before the John Wick films.
    As the timeline of John Wick's former life is not specified in the films, I've chosen to imagine he left the Ruska Roma soon after reaching adulthood, spent much of his 20s in the Marines, then left the armed forces and had a brief period living on the streets before Viggo Tarasov came across him in a bar.
    Viggo and the other film characters will not be featured much in this work. In this version, Jardani is first initiated into a different branch of the Tarasovs, not the main unit. I have assumed that he moves into closer contact with Viggo et al after this story takes place.
    This work will instead focus on Jardani's relationship with an original character, Elena - a young tattoo artist working for the Tarasovs.
    If you like having a clear visual of the character, I'm imagining Jardani at this age looks like Keanu in the first Matrix film, as he appears in the Nebuchadnezzar, not the computer simulations.

    Summary

    It was something Marcus has suggested when John had said his goodbyes. You can never be too careful, he’d said, never know who might stab you in the back. Always have an out.

    He’s retired. His remaining accounts firmly closed, debts settled.

    Still.

    Summary

    “What’s the catch,”

    John’s lips did smile then, but his eyes went dark, “Once you’re in, they will help you. Take care of you like their own. But once you’re out,” his eyes swept the street. Subconsciously Olympia studied the scene around them too. The street they were on was curiously empty for so early in the morning. There should be way more people rushing by for work, cars rushing by to this delivery or that office job.

    Instead, everything was still and quiet. As if everything and everyone had paused to hear the man’s offer too.

    “There is no way out.” the man eventually finished.

    Summary

    Tony Stark is the most dangerous man in the world. With an army of weapons and hired help on his side, nothing and no one ordinary could touch him. Unfortunately, the High Table is no ordinary criminal organization. Within the High Table's circle, all rules must be obeyed, even when it hurts. And to Alexander Pierce, nothing hurts more than owing a blood debt. And to complicate matters even further, in order to pay off the debt he must kill The Merchant of Death, Tony Stark himself.

    But, of course nothing could ever be simple in John Wick's world. And Death's very Emissary was determined to make everything as complicated as possible.

    A.K.A. Wick is Stark's bodyguard against the might of H.Y.D.R.A.

    Summary

    The staff were a family of sorts. Whether literally, from families who had been in service for generations, or by choice, those who had entered into the service and been figuratively adopted, the staff supported one another. Safety. There was a code. Rules about how they were treated. Staff were not to be interfered with by the High Table or its employees. It was an old agreement.

    Despite all this, Tabitha bled to death in the lobby.
