Chapter 97
 


Even with the gratuitous use of bones to help him drag his luggage up to the Tops, Kiryu distantly found himself thanking everything for the existence of elevators. In that state of mind, it was simple to do nothing else but mechanically unpack everything in his room and collapse onto the bed in dreamless sleep.

coming home )

He’d expected some kind of chaos when he came driving up to the garage, but not quite like…

“WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, YOUR STASH?! THIS IS MY GARAGE!”

That.

“WELL, A SECRET STASH CAN HARDLY BE KEPT IN MY OWN HOME, CAN IT?! EVERYONE WOULD LOOK FOR IT THERE!”

“BUT WHY WHERE I’M LIVING?! ZORA ALREADY GIVES ME A HARD TIME ABOUT YOUR ATTITUDE, IMAGINE THE EARFUL I’D GET ABOUT HER FINDING OUT YOU STORE STUFF HERE WITHOUT HER PERMISSION!”

“WELL, I THOUGHT I COULD TRUST A FRIEND TO SAFEGUARD SOMETHING SO IMPORTANT. BUT CLEARLY YOU’RE NOT THAT GOOD OF A FRIEND NOW, ARE YOU?!”

“THAT FUCKING CLOWN FROM SECURITY ALREADY BROKE IN HERE AND STOLE CUP RAMEN BEFORE AND YOU THINK THAT’S A GOOD IDEA?!”

WHAT?! I WASN’T INFORMED OF THAT PARTICULAR DETAIL! I RESCIND MY PREVIOUS OPINION OF YOU, YOU ARE COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT AND-“

“YEAH, YEAH YEAH, JUST GET YOUR STUPID RAMEN OUT OF HERE!”

“FINE! BUT IF I FIND OUT THAT BRUNO WAS THE ONE WHO ATE IT WHILE WE WERE GONE-“

“I-I didn’t touch any cup ramen! H-honest!”

Poor Bruno. They didn’t even notice Kiryu rolling up to the garage, clattering bones and all. All the better, he supposed. Maybe he could get done with things in pea-

“Aah, so you weren’t eaten after all! Great, great!”

…What.

“Hah? Who’s getting eaten?” Crow raised an eyebrow, apparently not sure whether to be confused at the sudden interruption or wondering when Rua had gotten into the garage.

“THE ONLY THING THAT WE SHOULD WORRY ABOUT GETTING EATEN IS MY PRECIOUS-“

“NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR STUPID CUP RAMEN, JACK!”

Right, then. Kiryu ignored them in favor of heading inside, although he did raise an eyebrow at Rua insisting that they should all listen to him, that something big was going on inside the garage. His suspicions were only confirmed at finding Nico and West staying close to Ruka, who looked unsure about the whole mess going on.

“D-Don’t worry. I’m pretty sure it can’t be as big a deal as Rua says…”

“Eh? But Ruka, didn’t you say that it did feel like an Earthbound? So what if it really is…”

Immediately, Kiryu stepped into the garage, garnering the kids’ immediate attention. He ignored their surprised cries at his presence, however, instead focusing on whatever clues he could find to figure out what had happened. A trail of spilled noodles and broth on the floor near them was what he’d found, and idly remembering the subject of the argument outside, he followed it. It led to under one of the tables in the corner, and as he kneeled down to investigate he didn’t notice Rua dragging the others inside.

“Yuusei?”

The spirit’s eyes had grown to inhuman size again, he noticed. With how small he was, it really did make him look like a small bug lurking in the corner, and Kiryu couldn’t help but remember him and the other Dark Signers constantly finding Yuusei hiding in the oddest places. Back then, he’d never really thought as to why Yuusei was always doing that, he’d chalked it down to curiosity back then, but…
Yuusei didn’t answer, and Kiryu reluctantly reached over to fish him out. Normally, he’d let him be, but with everything going on…it was better to get things straightened out as soon as possible. Yuusei didn’t resist being taken out, but he clearly wasn’t happy about it if the way his head flopped somewhat to the side meant anything. Still, by the time Kiryu stood up to look over Yuusei properly, his eyes had closed, the two curved glowing lines being the only indication that he was affecting a smile.

“Ah, you found me…I was just finishing this up, see? It was getting a bit noisy, and I wanted to eat in peace, so…”

Yuusei really was a terrible liar, Kiryu noted. Even back in Team Satisfaction, Yuusei was one of the more open of the group, heart always on his sleeve and passionate to the end despite his cool demeanor. How strange was it, then, that he didn’t notice these tells during his time as a Dark Signer. How could he fail to notice Yuusei tensing up every time he was snatched up, the hint of a waver in his voice as he searched for the right words to say without stepping on the god’s toes, or the unnatural smoothness that would sometimes happen if either of them spent too long on their thoughts? How could he never see the reason for Yuusei constantly squirrelling away? The way he was back then…would he even be unable to see this obvious farce, the invisible smile and tense body, holding an empty, crinkled, upside-down ramen cup that was barely bigger than him?

“Yuusei.”

The ghost blinked, eyes shrinking back down to normal in his surprise. Kiryuu could have almost laughed at such transparency, but instead chose to put a hand on Yuusei’s head, patting down the spiked hair and forcing the ghost to look directly at him.

“It’s okay. You don’t have to hide anymore.”

“…” Yuusei’s mouth dropped open, his small body starting to visibly shake. He bowed his head, dropping the ramen cup to the floor as he finally lost his grip on it. “I…I…”

Kiryuu held him close, and the spirit found himself burying his head in the man’s shoulder, the two oblivious to the others watching with different levels of unease, confusion, and realization.

And for the first time since he’d come out of the ground, Yuusei cried.

Episode 017 – Aim for the Top! Let’s Go, Genin!

Jackie-sensei had lost no time in putting Gori and Hyde through their paces. While it was gratifying to see that they had just as much (if not more) difficulty with the training as the kids had (watching them flee from the large boulder garnered quite a few laughs from the group), Subaru still felt uneasy. He knew those two had no intention of actually putting in the years of training that was likely necessary to be a master worthy of inheriting the dojo. Heck, Subaru himself only planned on staying for the weekend at the most. There was no way any of them would stay remotely long enough to inherit the mansion and the right to search it for whatever treasures it held, whether an OOPart was included amongst them or not. No, those two would search and plunder its depths once they got the chance. Subaru would either have to stop them…or find the OOPart first.
 

The way of the ninja, de osaru! )

Series: Pokemon Anime
Rating: PG-13, I guess?
Warnings: death, suicidal mention, angry bitter OS!Pikachu calling Mewtwo out on his bullshit, the works.
Notes: fic based off [tumblr.com profile] ommanyte 's horrid AU Art that posited the theory of Ash never reviving after being turned to stone in Movie 1 and Pikachu never forgetting. that's probably a warning all on its own. basically i noticed the plants growing to signify the passage of time in that art piece and then remembered that it was on an artificially made battlefield, so i reckon it musta taken a long time for the plants to take root and grow. then i figured about the possibilities of Mewtwo coming back before Pikachu could even stay there that long fro the plants to be around, so I decided to write their meetings and bitter soul-searching conversations. it hurt me. i hope it hurts you too.
Summary: The boy never revived. The Pikachu never forgot. The Mewtwo wasn't sure if he would ever understand.

Series: Pokemon Anime
Rating: PG
Warnings: obligatory satoshi crossdressing episode. oh dear.
Notes: Rough version, so there may be some grammatical errors. A cleaned up version will be posted on FFNet if this is positively received. This is set some time in the future after the Tripokalon shown in the New Year's Special has taken place, and assumes that Serena lost that Tripokalon as well as received the feedback from Yashio that features prominently in the first part of this fic. 
Summary: Obligatory Satoshi crossdressing episode involves him entering a Tripokalon. Also there's character development for Serena involved probably.

 “You do not have what it truly takes to be Queen. Until you realize what that is, you can’t win over Elle.”

Episode 016 – Training, de Osaru!

It wasn’t often that Subaru actually reserved a weekend for hanging out with Luna and the others. Granted, they’d been seeing each other much more often given that the four children had become an unofficial test group for Utagai’s mass-produced version of the Star Carriers, but those meetings had never been planned out beforehand. When they did plan to meet up, more often than not the children arranged to meet up for some sort of school project, or the occasional weekend concert from Misora (the other three quickly learned to leave the seat-reserving to Subaru, he apparently had the luck of the devil when it came to reserving good seats for those shows).

De osaru! )

northwind_gale: (I has a project!)
Characters: Hoshikawa Subaru, Hoshikawa Akane, Solo, Shirogane Luna, others
Rating: PG-13...ish?
Warnings: Uh I guess vague mentionings of adults beating on a little kid. It's rather vague, and nothing too shocking to anyone who already knows Solo's backstory.
Notes: Just as "Alone" was based on speculation of Solo's past from some vague line, this fic is based off a tangent of speculation from that. What if, just what if, Solo had found that friend that would never have betrayed him? What if?

Series: Megaman Star Force/Ryuusei no Rockman
Characters: Hoshikawa Subaru, Solo, Rob Sidkic (sidequest character)
Rating: PG-13/K+
Warnings: Mild cursing? Kind of? Eh.
Notes: Rob Sidkic and Sugar Suet actually are characters from the third game, but they really only exist to give sidequests. They're the only Satella Police officers with names that I can remember off the top of my head, though, so Rob gets to be the officer that was shown being injured in an attempt to recruit Solo in Black Ace/Red Joker, and Sugar is only mentioned, never seen. I don't know their Japanese names, and I'm not really assed to find out, but I'm sure they're just as equally...er, punny.
Summary: Those who make their way into the elite ranks of the Satella Police are the best of the best, and the responsibilities they take up reflect that. Duties include: monitoring and eliminating any threats to the nation, ensuring world peace and safety, and picking up young children after particularly destructive playdates. A series of snippets of the cyclical battles between Rockman and Burai, as observed by a Satella Police officer.

northwind_gale: (I has a project!)
Series: Megaman Star Force/Ryuusei no Rockman
Rating: K+/PG-13
Characters: Multiple OCs, Hoshikawa Subaru (brief cameo) and War-Rock (an even briefer cameo)
Warnings: There are some darker implication about the consequences of mass-producing heroes, but it's very light hints. Also this is my first story that is pretty much OC driven, so I'm slightly worried about how it came out.
Notes: Based off Hanun's comic, Star Child,  which introduces an AU in which after Subaru is no longer to take on the mantle of Rockman in the public eye, WAZA clones War-Rock in order to create Rockmen based off the various powerups he's imbibed throughout the series. The first few lines of the story are actually taken right out of the comic itself. The comic itself is just a snippet from the Angel Tribe Rockman's point of view and his interactions with the Black Ace Rockman, and initially it was supposed to be based on only the two of them. However, it grew into a sort of worldbuilding story with the initial snippet appearing at the end, so I don't know if Hanun would actually accept this headcanoning on her part. So I guess until she says something, it's an AU of an AU? Ahaha.
Summary: With the original blue shooting star too tired to fight, WAZA creates a legion of Rockmen to replace him. See the inner workings of the Rockman Project through the eyes of it's newest recruit, the new Angel Rockman!



They were all Rockmen, but there was more to them. )

Series: Megaman Star Force/Ryuusei no Rockman
Rating: K+/PG-13
Characters: Solo, brief appearances of Doctor Orihime and Hollow, various oc's
Warnings: Beating on kids? Well, Solo's backstory is pretty sad as it is with only the implications...
Notes: Basically this is my musing from wondering over a specific line from SF3 and wondering why Solo would spout this out of nowhere when it doesn't seem in character for him. Why would he worry about friends betraying friends? This also ties into how exactly he learned he was from Mu, when he apparently was alone for most of his life.
Summary: "I think he will listen to you...And then you will become close friends...But one day he will turn on you, and you will regret everything." Solo's life as a child, and how he came to that conclusion himself. Was there something in his past he neglected to tell Subaru, as it was too painful to recollect?



The boy had been destined to always be alone. )

Notes: Intended to be written as a video game storyline, so yeah, lots of focus on Netto and Rockman.exe. Just warning, if that's not your thing!

What a strange star... )

So, I might have forgotten a tiny little page-or-so long scene between Rockman and Ikuta-sensei in chapter 8. And I might have not just realized it until now. Oops.

Notes: Bad End AU. oops what are emotions. Also this is a sidestory chapter, authored by Gabe. But don't be fooled! Just because it's a sidestory doesn't mean it's not important to the plot! It's got some nice...foreshadowing. :) It messes with the plot I had planned just a tiny bit, but who cares? I can work around it! Especially when it's got some adorable and heartbreaking headcanoning for these two side characters.
