Tales of the Abyss fanfiction: I am so sorry : ((((

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
For narugami,

young!Luke and Guy fic:

“Luke-sama, you can’t eat that! Put it d- spit it out! Spit it out now!”

Pear laughed at Guy’s consternation. “You have to let him learn from his mistakes,” said the gardener, indulgently, seeming to enjoy the sight of the frantic Guy making his way towards the boy in the middle of the flowerbeds, not caring that his words were falling on deaf ears. “You can’t protect him from everything, you know.”

The scion of the von Faber family, heir to the most impressive dukedom in all of Kimlasca, unceremoniously spat out the flower he’d attempted to swallow, and screwed up his face in extreme distaste. He glared at Guy, as if accusing him of making the petals bitter.

“I told you not to eat it, Luke,” remonstrated his weary servant and caretaker, even while watching Luke carefully for any further signs that the flower was disagreeing with his young charge. “Now come out of the flowerbed, you’re ruining the flowers.”

Luke obstinately sat down in the midst of the blossoms and refused to budge.

If he hadn’t been the son of one of the most important men in Markt, Guy would have given him a good spanking. As it was, Guy found himself wishing he could have done just that – it might have saved all of them a great deal of bad behavior. But Luke had been treated like glass since his abduction barely over a year ago, and in Guy’s opinion, it was doing him more harm than good.

Luke held out his arms to Guy, demanding to be carried.

Clearly, the young master might have forgotten how to speak, but he didn’t need words to make his feelings clear.

Guy had, in fact, on more than one occasion, refused to give in to Luke’s outrageous demands, but those attempts never lasted for long. They both knew how those particular contests of will would end. Guy might win those which required Luke to get out of bed, or those over wearing clothes, and about going to sleep, but he never won any arguments over who had to eat his carrots, and he certainly never won when Luke wanted to be carried.

As it was, Guy stepped knee-deep into flowers and gave in to the youngest von Faber’s increasingly insistent demands to be carried. The weight of the young Luke in his arms was considerable, and Guy knew that at the rate Luke was growing, he wouldn’t be able to do this much longer.

Luke put his arms around Guy’s neck, and looked up at him as if he had all the right in the world to be in Guy’s arms, and he was doing Guy a favour by letting himself be carried. And all of a sudden Guy realised he would miss this, when Luke was old enough not to want to be carried any more.

It was strange, how Luke’s kidnapping had changed so much. Aside from that matter of Luke never being allowed out of the von Faber compound until he was of age, it had made Luke a much greater part of Guy’s life than he had ever been before. Before this, Luke hadn’t needed to be looked after for every second of his life. While Guy still been Luke’s servant, this Luke seemed to need him more than the previous one had. He set Luke down on the path between the flowerbeds, and Luke immediately set off for Pear’s wheelbarrow.

Correction, thought Guy, this Luke definitely needed him more, as he stepped between the inquisitive Luke and Pear’s collection of gardening tools. Wouldn’t want the young master to scratch himself on a rake now, what with that flower he’d almost eaten. Hopefully he wouldn’t be landed with the task of explaining the unexpected addition to Luke’s diet to the household, if said diet disagreed with him.

Whether Guy wanted to admit it or not, he was getting used to the new Luke. In the morning, Luke woke and was attended to by the household maids, and was returned to them every evening to be put to bed, but between then, he was all Guy’s. It hadn’t been a responsibility that Guy embraced. Not at first, at least.

For fate_repeated - (I was serious! *grin* - but I can't get Jade to be nice to Dist! I'm working on it!)

Jade fic.

In Markt, everything was different. Gone were the snows that had marked so the days of their childhood, and in their place were the dusty streets and the clamor of an Empire they had to learn to command.

Everyone was different, too. Even if they hadn’t already been changing, they’d have had to change. The children of Ketelburg were no more. Peony developed a heretofore undiscovered fascination with buusagi, Saphil changed his name, and Jade Curtiss learnt that secret of diplomacy lay in being able to insult people without their knowing it, although Jade thought that far too easy, given the people he was surrounded with.

Saphil, for one. Or Dist as he now wanted to be called. Saphil was far too easy a target, being easily roused to anger, easy to provoke, and in many ways as simple an adult as the child he once had been. Jade wondered if growing up with Saphil made him completely incapable of seeing him as a complex individual, because he knew why and how Saphil had turned out that way, so there was no mystery to the man as far as he was concerned. As individuals went, Peony was far more interesting, and at least he never bored Jade the way Saphil did.

Saphil could be so tedious sometimes, especially when Jade knew all too well what he was trying to do, and it wasn’t working. At least, not with Jade. One might as well have given a cheegle a mantle and called it the Doushi. A fool by any other name would still be the same fool; the only difference being that said fool would now have a similarly foolish title. So, whether Saphil preferred to be called Dist, or disliked being called Shinigami no Dist, or wanted to be known as Dist of the Rose, it was all the same to Jade.

To his mind, Saphil was still Saphil, had always been Saphil, and would always be Saphil, no matter what he called himself now. Jade occasionally called him Dist only because it made things easier, because as much as Saphil’s subsequent convulsions of rage could be on occasion amusing, Jade often had more important things to do than indulge him.


The afternoon sun casts long slanting shadows on the scrublands of Markt, as Luke von Faber fights with himself.

They are almost evenly matched, he and Asch, taught by the same teacher and given each others’ advantages of power and strength and speed. But truth be told, in this fight, Asch has the edge, his experience in the Markt Army and his time as one of the Rokujinshou gifting him the ability to read enemies and know what they will do, sometimes even before they know it. And it is this knowledge that stands him in good stead now.

“Pathetic,” says Asch shortly, as he knocks Luke off-balance and to the dusty ground. Luke rises almost instantly, alive with indignation, but the point of Asch’s sword, suddenly at his throat, kills the impulse to protest.

“I can beat you just as well with a replica as I can with an original,” said Asch, with absolutely no trace of irony in his voice. He tosses the wooden sword to the ground and stalks off. “Try again later,” he says, without looking back at Luke. “And try not to be such an embarrassment to yourself this time.”

Luke slowly picks himself up, sore in about a hundred places and annoyed in even more ways. “Idiot,” he mutters, under his breath.

“He isn’t wrong,” says an impish voice, and Luke turns to meet eyes the colour of his own, as a certain firebrand steps out from behind a convenient tree, where she almost certainly had been watching the entire display.

“Fight him and then speak for yourself!”

“He wouldn’t ask anything of you that he couldn’t ask of himself,” says Natalia,

“I know,” groaned Luke. He knew it, and acknowledging it didn’t help.

“But I think it best that you train with him,” said Natalia, surprisingly.

“Why?” asked Luke, startled. Surely Guy would have made a better choice, if for the sole reason that he wouldn’t resent it quite so much.

“He won’t hold back,” replied Natalia, with absolute certainty. “Not with anyone, and never with you.”

“That doesn’t help at all,” retorted Luke.


The question brings Luke up short, and the look that those green eyes level at him makes him remember that he is, after all, looking at the Princess of Kimlasca-Lanvandear.

As he thinks about it, he is forced to admit that she isn’t wrong, either. Where Van and Guy might have held back out of a sense of fairness for who and what he was, Asch had no such reservations. And where they were going, they would need all the help they could get – and indeed, who would know your limits as well as you, yourself?

OH GOD ASCH I AM SO SORRY but I wanted to write this.
warning for TOTAL CRACK.

HAPPY!Rokujinshou fic.

“A toast!” roared the tallest General in the Malkuth tavern. “To one of our youngest members!”

“I remember when you first came to Markt,” said the silver-haired Shinigami, teasingly. “You couldn’t get over your replica, and you couldn’t think about anything else except wanting to go home.” But under his light humor there was genuine warmth as he raised his glass in celebration.

“Don’t remind me,” said the redheaded Oracle Knight, wryly. “That was such an embarrassment.”

“I’m proud to say that today, some of his best friends are replicas,” added an emerald-maned youth, raising his visor so that the company could see him grinning from ear to ear, and hooking an arm around the redhead’s waist.

“You’ve come a long way indeed,” chimed a tiny peach-haired girl, nodding vigorously.

The hum of conversation in the tavern was drowned out by a spirited rendition of “For He’s a Jolly Good Rokujinshou”, as the newest member of the Six Generals blushed as scarlet as his hair.

POOR ASCH. Spoilers for... a world that never was.

“Tell them they can throw themselves into an abyss,” says your replica, characteristically direct, and characteristically frustrated with the entire enterprise. "Or off the Tartarus. I don't care. At least if they throw themselves into an abyss we won't have to clean up the mess."

“It’s not that easy,” you say, brushing a sheaf of paper off the scatter of books on your desk. “The Lorelai Church would hardly be put off by an argument like that.”

The replica’s eyes narrow as he ignores your last suggestion. “Any institution that designates one of these –” here he nudges his sleeping cheegle with his foot – “As a Holy Beast surely has more than just the Score wrong.”

You shake your head and laugh. It’s not enough that he manages to systematically insult the leading religion in Markt and Kimlasca with every sentence he utters, it’s also that he probably isn’t even aware he’s doing it.

You look at him, scowling fit to rival a thunderstorm over the lines of fonim that he’s meant to be learning, and you can’t help but wonder how someone who’s supposed to be exactly like you turned out so very different, instead. The sunlight spilling through the tall windows turns his hair to fire amidst the cool dim shadows of the library. He mutters under his breath as he turns the page, and his cheegle lets out a sleepy mieu, but doesn’t rouse from its position as his footrest.

“One really good Choushindou would put an end to all of this,” he says, casting a certain look in your direction. It’s almost a look you would have called plaintive, save for the fact that like you, your replica has no patience for pleading. You would reprove him for what he’s just said, if it wasn’t something you yourself had thought, many a time. Then again, if that sort of opinion had been entertained, you’d all be living in Qlipoth.

The replica frowns at you, and you could almost swear that he can read your mind, just like you can read his.

For little_ribbon, the contents of that file you were interested in. Coincidentally, it was actually inspired by you.

Everyone who's ever found the 'he's so much like me' / "we have so much in common" concept remotely attractive should bear in mind the legend of Narcissus, a man who fell in love with his own reflection, and as befits all Greek myths of this sort, came to a rather disastrous end.

So as you can see, it's really not advisable to fall in love with yourself.

[I really do write rubbish, you know. and here's how the file got its name.]

'Even a cheegle would starve on what you eat,' growled Asch.

[I AM SO SORRY THAT IS ALL THERE IS. You picked a notepad file!]

And this was in the file, too, and probably summarises my Abyss writing techniques:

You see, bad fanfiction makes baby cheegles cry.
Because every time bad fanfiction gets written, Luke-sama abuses a cheegle.

Please, think of the cheegles.

...Mieu, I'll make it up to you.

.......You make me want to write fic D:

These are really very cute. And you're actually feeding my love for Asch. Are you sure you're an Asch hater?
22nd-Nov-2006 06:57 am (UTC) - I LOVE YOU AND WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY :D
............... REALLY?!?! OH MY GOD?! Because that would be the best thing ever. ♥ If this could make you want to write fic I would write YOU SO MUCH MORE FIC AND WAAAH EL IF YOU WOULD WRITE FOR TALES OF THE ABYSS I... wait, I already love you forever.

*CRIES THE FUBRAS RIVER* I do not actually know how I end up subconsciously feeding Asch love but I didn't intend it! *cries*

I am very sure I am not an Asch fan at all but I think what harajukufuuri has is CONTAGIOUS. D< I NEED TO BE DISINFECTED, I DON'T WANT TO LOVE ASCH.

... but of all the Abyss characters he's my ONLY muse and we hate each other. :((((
22nd-Nov-2006 06:52 am (UTC)
I am such a sucker for anything with young!Guy and Luke. That was sooooo cute :3 Reminds me of the doujinshi where Guy catches Luke eating leaves XD Do you archive all of your fics?
22nd-Nov-2006 07:00 am (UTC)
*grin* Thank you so much - I'm so glad you liked it! I'm pleasantly surprised, I wrote it as a present fic to say thank-you and I didn't expect this.

Oh, GRAVE? XD That eating leaves is so amusing. I haven't seen it myself but I've heard of it! *grin*

*colours* I actually don't post my fanfiction much if at all - this is the first Abyss fanfiction post of my own work I've ever done. I tend to feel quite shy, especially with regards Abyss, because there are really, really good writers out there.
22nd-Nov-2006 06:59 am (UTC)
You should try writing LukeXLuke.XDXDXD Hehehe.

*copy pastes the fics* I'll be taking them home. So I can read them ALL there.>D
22nd-Nov-2006 07:01 am (UTC)
I WOULD LOVE TO, but the problem is that if I wrote that no one would know who was doing what to whom. >D

Oh YEAH, your icon. Luke's earlier self would completely seme his short-haired self.

D< I am flattered, but I don't write very well, and you draw better. EHEHEH.
22nd-Nov-2006 07:46 am (UTC)
Luke put his arms around Guy’s neck, and looked up at him as if he had all the right in the world to be in Guy’s arms, and he was doing Guy a favour by letting himself be carried. And all of a sudden Guy realised he would miss this, when Luke was old enough not to want to be carried any more.

I drew this out of boredom WHEN I SHOULD BE WORKING ON MY ASSIGNMENT. This picture suddenly became unbelievably familiar until I remembered that Plaines drew a Legendia picture that has almost the exact same pose and that counts me as an automatic loser cheegle.

22nd-Nov-2006 08:03 am (UTC) - I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

IIIIII .... I - I - thank you so much! You make me so happy! Art by you always makes me happy, and I'm incredibly touched that you drew it for this story?! *hugs you so tightly*

Also you and me are both winning because I should be studying for my exams too. XDDD I went to do your survey but it is down for maintenance now, cries!

... YOU CAN NEVER BE A LOSER. D< I will set fire to anyone who says so.

*cuddles picture and can't stop smiling* Thank you thank you so much. XD AND IT HAS COLOUR TOO... Aw, I love the way Luke's face is turned towards Guy and the way it looks like he's all curled up in Guy's arms. XDDDDD THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH.
22nd-Nov-2006 07:54 am (UTC)

The young!Luke/Guy one is adorable. XDD Ahahaha, and the Rokujinshou crack fic makes it possible to see Dist being a mother hen for some reason I blame the armchair.

Bad fanfics make replicas cry too!
22nd-Nov-2006 08:06 am (UTC)
*grin* Thank you so much! I'm so glad to hear you liked it.

Heh, that's because Dist was the mother. And all the younger Rokujinshou would go to him and sit in his lap so he could tell them stories from his revenge diary. Arietta would sit in his lap and Asch and Sink would sit either on the arms of the armchair or curl up by his feet and Dist would tell them about how the horrible nasty people who were mean to them would suffer the wrath of his gorgeous revenge.

Largo was Daddy, too!

XD Bad fanfic makes everyone but me cry, because bad fanfic makes me happy. :D
22nd-Nov-2006 08:16 am (UTC)
You actually posted fic? Holy shit, is the sky falling? XDXDXD
22nd-Nov-2006 08:29 am (UTC) - *DIES LAUGHING SO HARD*



YEA, this was the series I wanted to write citynextdoor fic for. XD
22nd-Nov-2006 08:20 am (UTC) - KUZU! checked your e-mail yet, desu no?
...Mieu, I'll make it up to you.

xD Oh, sweetheart, you don't know how many times Luke abused a cheegle because of me, then. *laughs* My bad fic is worse than your bad fic! I don't think it's bad fic, anyway.

... how exactly do I inspire you to write self!love fic? Do you secretly love yourself? ;) Or is it because you like the idea of post-zomg Luke/Asch (because he would totally be the seme then! you cannot top your own body! xD)

T.T Why do I always get the shortest stories? Sobs.

Maybe it is because I only have time to read the short one. :D *sneaky hennachoko who is not supposed to be online desu no.*

At least you remember my username. ;) It's a shock to see little_ribbon on aefallen's journal. xD (I am just so mean to you, darling, you should flush me down the toilet! :D)
22nd-Nov-2006 08:32 am (UTC) - YES DESU NO! XD Abyss community post and my post edited too desu no! HAI DESU NO!
It is not even a story!! Sweetie, I wouldn't even have posted it save for the fact that you wanted to see what was in a file. See, my story ideas are in my notepad files, and my actual stories are in the Microsoft Word files! Unfortunately none of the files you wanted to see were files with stories in them.

.... SO UNTRUE. Do you know how much bad abyss fanfiction I write? I am surprised Mieu is even alive at this rate, but cheegles are small and hardy and also bouncy.

... WAS IT SELF-LOVE?! : ((( It ws more a comment on Asch/Luke in general, but the real reason you inspired that was because I SAW HOW LITTLE YOU ATE FOR THE FIRST TIME, and the first thing my Asch voice told me was that a cheegle would starve on what you ate.

NO I'M JUST WAITING TO PUSH YOU OFF THE DURIAN. Sweetie I had durian chocolate the other night, and it was so disgusting and I can't wait for you to get here so I can get you some. I bit into it not knowing it was durian and EW, I HATE DURIAN, but you love it, so you may have it. I mean, I'll buy you new ones. IN THE DURIAN, EVEN.
22nd-Nov-2006 08:31 am (UTC)
fic~!!!! *hugs*
22nd-Nov-2006 08:33 am (UTC)
INSPIRED BY YOU ♥ THANK YOU SO MUCH. XDDDDDD *griin* Because it is true that people do get published, and paid, FOR MUCH WORSE. XD
22nd-Nov-2006 08:49 am (UTC)

Yay for schmoopy Guy and Luke ficcage.

And OMG the crack! ♥

Ahem. Yes. *is pleased as punch to see more ToA ficcage cropping up* D: Can you tell?
22nd-Nov-2006 08:56 am (UTC)
*griiin* Thank you so much! Man, the only thing I want to see more than Asch/Luke is Guy/Luke, and Guy/Luke is slowly getting an edge over Asch/Luke in my heart.

It says a lot about Asch that it takes CRACK fic to make him HAPPY. The closest I can canonically get him to happy is content, and that's hard enough as it is. OH ASCH why WON'T you be happy.

*grin* THEN I'LL MAKE MORE. Least I could do for you. *smiles* Brilliant work, what you're doing! I cannot tell you how happy I was that Abyss FINALLY got a full-length epic work.
22nd-Nov-2006 09:57 am (UTC)
Ohhhh, just awesome.

The AU one? Pure. Sex. I'm a sucker for AUs, and wow. ♥

And yay, the flower-eating one I had heard about~

The fight between Asch and Luke... man. Yes. Just perfect. Oh, Nata-chan~

Thank you for sharing all of these.
23rd-Nov-2006 06:49 am (UTC)
*beams* Thank you so much! You do such great work with Van and Rokujinshou!Guy and Asch and Luke and everybody, I'm very honoured by the compliment. *smiles*

*beams* I'm so glad you liked it! It's one of the things I wrote for myself because I so wanted to see it happen and never did, and I'm glad you liked it. *grin* I'm a massive sucker for AUs when it comes to Abyss too, because so much happens and there are just so many ways and directions to take this plot, at any time in the game. It's great. *grin* AUs are a way for me to see all the different versions of Abyss I never got. *grin*

! *grin* Thank you so much! I never did think Luke would be able to beat Asch immediately, after all, all he'd been practicing against were Sensei, Guy and the fontech doll, wheras Asch's be so much more experienced than him.

You're most welcome! *smiles* Thank you for sharing your art and your ideas. *smiles*
22nd-Nov-2006 11:34 am (UTC) - ninja post!!!1one /spams asch icon and love
...what, me, contagious? >:D~~~~ you know your hatred of Asch is just waiting to cross the line into extreme loving!

The Guy/Luke was so cute. Pls to be writing MOARRRRR after the exams but also do not forget about embarassing Asch completely! XD you do it v. well. *APPROVES*

(with that Asch/Luke you have also put an AU ficbunny where Asch is king and Luke is... Luke into my head; this is probably the fifth or so ficbunny that has threatened to develop into a full-fledged 40 page anthology. I should write all of this down >___> )

I am almost willing to guarantee that you'll like Asch a lot better after you play as him. Between feeling sorry for him (unlike Luke, he's fantastically stoic, and thank goodness because the game hates him), cooing over him when he has his hair down, admiring the view from the back, and laughing when he teases Luke (which he does quite a bit since Luke likes to, er, butt in; Asch's wonderful poker face aside, the context of the teasing is a little bit sad, because he knows very well the party doesn't trust/love him as they do Luke, as exemplified by Guy) or when he's so ineffably shy that it's just cute, it's almost impossible to hate him. Heck, I was surprised by how much I liked him after that - I wasn't expecting to, given that my previous woobie was based solely on how I liked how (forced - it was intriguing!) he sounded in Japanese, and how he, well, suffers throughout the game. :D;; I wasn't expecting him to suffer this much though... or to be so easy to sympathise with! (...no, this isn't suspiciously like what happened in KH2.)

I have to say almost only because of your current proclivities. D:< If I weren't so slow in studying for exams (because of, guess what, ABYSS! D: ) I would totally come down and force march you through to Aramis Well/Spring.

/ninjas back to books
yes, you're contagious. And the people who draw Asch are evil for drawing an Asch that is not like the ingame Asch that I love to h ate. D<

XDDDD!!! I WILL TRY MY BEST TO WRITE MORE. ESPECIALLY FOR YOU. But the funny thing is I find that after the exams - at least after my UK exams, my muses all died and it took me months to get them back. XDDD I am ... HAPPY? that you approve of my embarrassing Asch. HAHAHA.

(WHY I can adapt one of the semi-original stories I wrote into an Asch is king story for you. Let's see how different they turn out. XD I ALSO ENCOURAGE 40 PAGE ANTHOLOGIES PLEASE, ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE BY YOU.) XD

.... Or I might go right back into hating Asch when I play him. The version of him I like the best isn't pure canon Asch, it's a variation with 80% of the original qualities. I like characters like Kanda, who IS essentially Asch with a hairstyle I love, minus Luke plus Allen beansprout. xD He is terribly hot with his hair down but it's the PERSONALITY that I don't like.

How FORCED he sounded in Japanese. *rolls on the ground laughing and imagining Abyss BL drama* XD

Admit it, you like Asch because he's so much like RIKU. Replica complex, emo angst, self-sacrificing nobility, and, stupid boyfriend to boot. :D

22nd-Nov-2006 11:58 am (UTC)
Thank you for writing that! *__* It is cute and to the point... Ah, evil!Jade. Ohoho.
23rd-Nov-2006 10:13 am (UTC)
*beams* You're most welcome! Thank you for getting me into liking Dist - without you, I honestly don't think I would have loved him quite so much. XD

Now to see if I can get Evil!Jade to be nice to Dist, and not quite so contemptuous. XD
22nd-Nov-2006 12:12 pm (UTC)
Pretty writings :)

23rd-Nov-2006 10:14 am (UTC)
EEEE WHEN I COME TO SEE YOU I WILL BRING YOU THIS GAME AND LOTS OF PRETTY. ♥ *snugs tight* I hope you're doing fine, dear, and I can't wait to see you soon! *griiin*
22nd-Nov-2006 09:44 pm (UTC)
THANK YOU. I mean... thank you. You're always so much nicer than I deserve!
23rd-Nov-2006 10:16 am (UTC) - *beams*
*smiles* Thank you so much. I think it was you writing the AU Luke and Guy and Asch when they were young fic that awoke the wish in me to write a story about young!Luke and Guy, for you.

And oh, thank you so much! *beams* LUKE ART!!! *GRIIIN* And it's from you! Which automatically makes it all kinds of wonderful *smiles*

But but but you deserve this and so much more. ♥
22nd-Nov-2006 10:29 pm (UTC)
