Summary: In the middle of the night, Gourry gets an unlikely visitor ... and it changes everything.

Note: Lina and Gourry's outfits are based off this lovely piece of fanart by Japanese artist FMK. Lina's encounter with the Deme ambassador was inspired by "A Conspiracy of Kings" by Megan Whalen Turner, who has master the art of subtly in writing.

You can't know. Just please, don't let Lina Inverse be killed. She's your only hope to save this kingdom. )

Vows (3/?)

Title: Vows (3/?)
Series: Slayers
Characters/Pairings: Lina/Gourry
Rating: M
Summary: In the middle of the night, Gourry gets an unlikely visitor ... and it changes everything.

Note: Please note that this story follows the novel storyline of Slayers and derives nothing from the anime, other than an homage to a certain kingdom in this chapter.. As such, technology from beyond the Mazoku border such as cannons, bombs and gunpowder are new concepts to the majority of the cast novel-wise -- whereas these were introduced in the second episode of Try and the technology adapted in Saillune in the form of "Jillas cannons" by the time of Revolution/Evolution-R. There is also some liberty taken here in explaining why a landlocked kingdom like Saillune has a navy.

Part of her wished that she could have done something - anything - so it was Luke and Millina sitting under the stars together )

Title: Vows (2/?)

Characters/Pairings: Lina/Gourry
Rating: M
Summary: In the middle of the night, Gourry gets an unlikely visitor ... and it changes everything.

Note: If you look very closely at the new cover of novel 15, you can see that Gourry's actually wearing a robe, not a shirt. I modeled his outfit after Japanese fanartist FMK's interpretation of the 15th novel cover. What's more interesting is after I wrote this chapter, I went to get the links and noticed the comic where Lina and Gourry go through similar movements as in the chapter. Unintentional, I swear! Great minds just think alike.

They're yours. They've been waiting for you. Fifty silver, please. )

Title: Vows (1/?)
Series: Slayers
Characters/Pairings: Lina/Gourry
Rating: M
Summary: In the middle of the night, Gourry gets an unlikely visitor ... and it changes everything.

Disclaimer: There is a line of dialogue toward the end of this prologue that is inspired by the Doctor Who episode "Doomsday." Those familiar with it will know it when they see it.

Note: This started off as a one-shot birthday fic for [profile] prettio and blew up from there. Blame this on a combination of too much Doctor Who, working on "Namesake" and [personal profile] fenikkusuken's The Phoenix Blade. I figured if I left it at a one-shot, I'd have people on my doorstep calling for my murder before the night's out.

And I suppose ... if it's my last chance to say it ... )

Title: The Very Long Night of Gourry Gabriev (4/6)
Series: Slayers
Characters/Pairings: Cast of Slayers Revolution, OCs
Rating: PG-13
Summary: After visiting Taforashia, Gourry falls into a strange magical coma and must face the demons of his past during the very long night that follows for him, Lina, and the rest of their group.
Spoiler alert: This story takes place between episodes 6 and 7 of Slayers Revolution. Many thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] earthstar_chan for betaing this story.

Disclaimer: Recognizable dialogue from the middle of the chapter comes from the short story, "The Things He Sees Beyond the Point of His Sword," from Slayers Special vol. 24. The original translation was done by QP-Diana, supplied with a secondary translation from my own copy and cleaned up the English.

Chapter 4: Turn Left )

You can find the first three chapters here: Chapter One | Chapter Two | Chapter Three

I do apologize for this chapter being nearly 15 months past its original due date. Originally, the story was scheduled to be completed within a two-month time period. However, three days after posting chapter 3, I lost my job. The first worry was to salvage what I had of chapter 4, and thankfully had e-mailed it to myself from the office. Next was just life itself. The good news is that the story is well on its way to being complete.

Title: Here Comes the Sun (3/?)
Series: Slayers
Characters/Pairings: Lina/Gourry, Amelia/Zelgadiss
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Every story must have an ending. After the final battle in Taforashia, Lina, Gourry, Amelia, Zelgadiss and Pokota do what's necessary to go on with their lives.

Spoiler Alert: This part takes place just prior to the final scene of Evolution-R 13 before the epilogue montage begins and alludes to certain scenes we see in the epilogue. It should make Amelia/Zel fans very happy.

Title: "Counterglow," part of the "52 Flavours: The Sorceress and the Swordsman" compilation
Pairing/Characters: Lina/Gourry
Fandom: Slayers
Author's Notes: This story came about due to [livejournal.com profile] catgabriev on LiveJournal translating out the final scenes of the last Slayers novel. In that scene, Lina scraped Gourry up from the battlefield, gets him to an inn, tends to his injuries, and stays up all night watching over him. I swear, if that isn't fanfic fodder, I don't know what is! The lines from Gourry later in the fic are from the [livejournal.com profile] catgabriev-translated excerpt from novel#13.

Rating: PG-13
Summary: Every story must have an ending. After the final battle in Taforashia, Lina, Gourry, Amelia, Zelgadiss and Pokota do what's necessary to go on with their lives.

Spoiler Alert: This part takes place just prior to the final scene of Evolution-R 13 before the epilogue montage begins. This chapter is dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] parareality for her fanart of Lina and Gourry from right after the battle, of which a scene of this is based on and to [livejournal.com profile] catgabriev for her translations of certain L/G scenes from novels 13-15 that also inspired conversation. Please note that the dialogue at the end of this part is loosely based on the script for Evolution-R 13.

Spoiler Alert This prologue takes place during episode 12 of Slayers Evolution-R. And yes, [livejournal.com profile] catgabriev and [livejournal.com profile] noseless_wonder and [livejournal.com profile] witch_of_the_si, this is the missing moments scene I was alluding to last week. ^_~

It took them 15 minutes to realize that Gourry was missing ... )

So as [livejournal.com profile] secondlina mentioned in her post, she did her comic based off a fic I wrote a couple years ago.

Well ... so as the cycle goes ... fic leads to comic. And comic inspires the following fic ...

Title: "Recalling Things That Other People Have Desired," part of the "52 Flavours: The Sorceress and the Swordsman" compilation
Pairing/Characters: Lina/Gourry, Amelia, Zelgadiss, Pokota
Fandom: Slayers
Disclaimer: Slayers doesn't belong to me, but to Hajime Kanzaka and Rui Araizumi. I'm just borrowing the characters for awhile. You MUST have read the comic referred to in order to get what's going on here. Oh, and it's definitely rated PG-13.

And in the end, Lina knew what Gourry had been thinking about earlier that day. )

Title: The Very Long Night of Gourry Gabriev (3/6)
Series: Slayers
Characters/Pairings: Lina, Gourry, Amelia, Zelgadiss, Pokota, Wizer, OCs
Rating: PG-13
Summary: After visiting Taforashia, Gourry falls into a strange magical coma and must face the demons of his past during the very long night that follows for him, Lina, and the rest of their group.
Spoiler alert: This story takes place after episode 6 of Slayers Revolution and goes off on its own tangent from there. Many thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] ray_wing and [livejournal.com profile] earthstar_chan for betaing this story. NOTE: This chapter also includes material mentioned in an interview given by Hajime Kazaka that was recently translated into English. The details of that are in the author's notes at the end.

"Then what kind of head of security would I be if I let people like me know things that I'm not supposed to know? I know what I know because I have to know it. And if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either. Now look, we have tried most of the other ambassadors, why don't you speak to G'Kar, maybe he knows something about this ship."

"Under the terms of our recent treaty, I am not authorized to have any official conversation with the Narn without Centauri approval."

"So you'll ask unofficially. And I can give you reasonable assurances that the head of security will not report you for doing so."

"Because you won't tell yourself about it?"

"That's right. I never get involved with my own life. It's too much trouble."

Lina discovered the truth behind Gourry's words in the middle of peach ice cream... )
