*Again, a group of Assorted Seraphim (and demon) are in the theatre…*
Kratos: Well, it appears we’re back…
Zelos: *Going over to test the doors* Yeah, and the doors are double-locked…
Lloyd: Huh, Lord Yuan’s not here today…
Astarael: They probably let him out, the lucky bastard.
Zelos: Well, you have to admit, he was pretty crazy the last time.
Astarael: Crazy as in ‘Destroyed the theater?’
Zelos: Yeah, that kind of crazy.
*Word begin to go across the screen.*
FalterZelos: Well, The title doesn’t really tell us anything…
Astarael: *Idly flipping through the script-when he suddenly stops and grins* Oh, this’ll be interesting…
Astarael: Oh, don’t worry about it, Lloyd. *The paper suddenly gets incredibly soggy, and the words blur out* Oh, I guess they didn’t use waterproof ink…oopsie.
Kratos: …this bodes ill.
Kamikaze Demon: As to why I am doing this the reasons are unclear so bear with me okay?
Lloyd: Then why are you doing it?
I am an F-It All mood, so…..bear with me again. I’d like to thank Jin-Sho for collaborating in this.
Astarael: *rolls eyes* If you are going to swear, swear.
Jin-Sho: (blushing) Aww shucks……You shouldn’t have.
Kamikaze Demon: I know I shouldn’t have.
Kratos: *Terrible feeling of Apprehension*
Jin-Sho: (eyes tearing up) Why? I thought we were friends,
Kamikaze Demon: (unfazed) Okay, and?
Jin-Sho: Well……I don’t know.
Kamikaze Demon: ……?
Jin-Sho: Don’t ask.
Astarael: *Boredly* Are to going to get to the fic, or are you two going to continue to argue?
Kamikaze Demon: Wasn’t planning to. So I’m doing the disclaimer, okay? I don’t own TOS
or Kratos or Lloyd, okay? I just using these gorgeous angels for my own purpose okay?
Zelos: …this doesn’t look good.
Warnings: Contains yaoi and suicidal attempts
Zelos: …well, of course. This is a fanbrat story, after all.
Lloyd……so young…so beautiful.
Lloyd: OH GOD PLEASE DON’T LET THIS BE A YAOI-oh wait, too late.
He failed…miserably. Of course the world was saved, but his sense of honor and duty wasn’t.
Astarael: Peh. Honor just gets you killed, and duty is for stupid people.
Kratos: Some of us don’t think that way, Astarael.
Astarael: …Kratos, are you defending the fan-brat?
Kratos: …Point taken.
He let Colette die…
Lloyd: I LET /WHO/ DIE?!
..Genis got hurt, and the team didn’t trust him anymore.
Lloyd: *Still flabbergasted* I LET WHO DIE?!
Zelos: Lloyd, we know you have a crush on her, but-
Lloyd: *In his shock, completely going over the ‘crush’ thing* I WOULD DIE BEFORE I LET HER BE KILLED!
Astarael: And I’D kill you for not protecting her.
Raine was infuriated. In her anger, she slapped him, hard.
Zelos: Huh…I wonder if Raine’s slaps hurt worse than Sheena’s?
Kratos: I’m sure you would know much more about that than we do.
The mark was still there of course. But his heart was scarred forever. He couldn’t take it anymore.
Zelos: *Singing horribly-off tune* CRAWLIN’ IN MY SKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN-
Zelos: *Shuts up*
He was embarrassed. It all took place, all in that iota of a moment….in front of him. Kratos…
Lloyd: Father, if I had failed to protect Colette, I would not stop you from beating me to a pulp.
Kratos: While I wouldn’t go that far, I would still reprimand you.
Zelos: Man, you two are harsh on each other.
Zelos: Yeah, we know. Get on with it, already.
Astarael: *GRIN* Oh, this shall be good…
Zelos: HOMEY SAY WHAT NOW?!
Lloyd and Kratos: *Staring in shock*
Astarael: *Currently in the process of laughing his ass off*
But Kratos wouldn’t return it.
Kratos: *Recovers* I should HOPE I wouldn’t.
Lloyd: *Still in a state of Shock*
Astarael: *Still laughing like there isn’t a tomorrow*
They held a degree of respect for each other. More in a swordsmanship kind of way.
Kratos: More like in a Fatherly sort of way, dammit!
Lloyd: *This boy’s gonna need counseling.*
Astarael: *And this demon needs to stop laughing.*
Kratos wouldn’t accept it. He’d be too damn cynical to even care.
Kratos: No, I’d be more worried about his state of mental health.
Zelos: And then I’d have to report you to the castle guard for Molestation and incest.
Kratos: …Zelos, when have you cared about rules?
Zelos: Hey, Lloyd’s my bud.
Kratos: In the platatonic way, I hope.
Zelos: Ew. I like girls and their bouncy chests, thank you very much.
Kratos: …yes, you’re right. My apologies.
“Damn…..He’s so damn beautiful. If only I could, I need that courage…to at least tell him I love him…..” Lloyd couldn’t, he couldn’t do it.
Lloyd: *begins to cry*
He was so scared of rejection. He couldn’t……..He had to do the one thing he didn’t want to even think of……suicide.
Zelos and Kratos: HOMEY SAY WHAT NOW?!
Lloyd: *Cries more*
Astarael: *Dear god, could anything laugh this long and not die?*
Yes…..the omega to all of this bullshit.
Kratos: Why couldn’t it simply say ‘ the end?’
Zelos: Because that’s not ANGSTY enough.
Kratos: …When did the greek alphabet turn angsty, and why was I not informed?
His life….it will be forever scared……It shouldn’t have turned out like this. “Well……The world is safe. At least I got that accomplished. I’m so sorry Colette, I let you die…..I made that promise…..That I would protect you….Now look at what the hell I done.” Lloyd began to shake uncontrollably and broke down into fits of sobs. The team didn’t need him and now…..life didn’t either.
Zelos: *Singing horribly off-key again* THESE WOUNDS WON’T SEEM TO HEAL! THIS PAIN IS JUST TOO REAL! THERE’S JUST TOO MUCH THAT TIME CANNOT EEEERAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-
Kratos: SHUT UP, ZELOS. NOW.
Zelos: Why, what are you going to do if I don’t?
Kratos: *In the most dead-pan voice he can muster* Castrate you.
Zelos: *SHUTS UP LIKE WHOA*
Lloyd’s beautiful face
Zelos: *Cracks up*
hardened while the tears flowed freely. He grabbed one of his swords and marched outside.
Zelos: *Still cracking up*
Lloyd: *Still crying*
Kratos: *Still disgusted*
Astarael: *Still very much amused*
The night was beautiful….the stars shone brightly, the moon was full, and there was a gentle breeze ruffling the trees
Zelos: It was a beautiful night…then rocks fell and everybody died. The end!
Kratos: We wish.
and flowing through his silky hair.
Zelos: Huh. *Runs a hand through Lloyd’s hair*
Zelos: The hell? Your hair is brittle and coarse-not silky, like mine!
He looked like an angel. The moon shone it’s pale, silver moonlight, down on Lloyd. The tears on his face looked silver.
Zelos: *Gets up from his beating* Urgh….oo, such pretty purple prose…
Kratos: Don’t defile the color purple like that.
“I wish Kratos was here. He the only thing that kept me sane.
Zelos: He the only thing that keep me from using correct grammar, too.
But…at least the world will be rid of one bastard.” He looked at his sword. He was unaware of the love of his life standing behind him.
Lloyd: *Stops crying* …Colette?
Zelos: Psh. You wish.
Astarael: *Stops laughing* Why must they always do that?
My son…..so beautiful…..like Anna.
Kratos: DEAR GOD WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.
I love him…
Kratos: IN A FATHERLY WAY.
Zelos: Wow, I haven’t heard you shout this much…ever.
.I want him. I want to kiss his tears away, kiss those soft lips, hug him while he sobs, and run my hair through that silky mane.
Kratos: *SCREAM OF AGONY*
Lloyd: *Begins to cry again*
Zelos: *Hands over his ears* …Lloyd, are you crying BLOOD?!
Astarael: *Listening to Kratos scream with a smile on his face* Hey, Crying blood is my thing.
The list goes on……Why? I saw it all happen. Raine…that bitch…..she slapped him. It was like a slap to my heart. I saw the pain in his eyes……those mesmerizing dark pools. I love him. My Lloyd, my heart, my love….I can’t bear to see him like this.
Kratos: *SCREAM OF AGONY GETTING MORE PROFOUND*
He’s going to kill himself….to rid the world of one more “bastard”. No….I can’t let him do it…..I love him to much. I have to stop him……
Zelos: *Hands still over his ears* Dammit Kratos, get a grip! *Slaps the seraphim*
Kratos: *Stops, stunned*
Zelos: …I think I’m dead when he gets back to norma-
Kratos: *Wobbily* No…thank you…
Zelos: …holy shit, did I hear you correctly?
My life…..it’s all over with……I can’t do it no more….I can’t take it. I don’t want to do it…but my mind is telling me to. It makes no sense. All I’ve done….the world….it was for nothing. To watch friends get hurt and die. It’s too painful.
Astarael: …what? It needed to be said.
Maybe I should’ve stayed my ass home…
Zelos: *Blinks* But…that makes no sense…
.I never should have went to that temple…never should have went on that damned journey….It’s all over now….for me. As I raise my sword to my chest, I say my last words.
Zelos: [Lloyd] GET ME OUTTA THIS FIC.
“I love you, Kratos.” “I love you too, Lloyd.”
Kratos: *Head in hands*
Lloyd: *Stares at the fic in horror, blood dripping from his face*
Zelos: *Disgusted face*
Astarael: *Amused grin*
That it be….My eyes widen to saucers…..No way……I drop my sword and my eyes tear up again…
Zelos: And I…can’t stop….talking like….William…Shatner….
..I start to sob all over again. I feel myself being pulled into strong, warm arms…….
Lloyd: *Turns to Kratos, as if asking for a hug*
Kratos: *Shakes his head*
Lloyd: *Slowly turns back to the fic*
Kratos hugged Lloyd in a warm embrace; in his normally enigmatic eyes, tears were falling freely. He gently lifted up Lloyd’s chin, their eyes meeting. “Lloyd….I love you. I’ve always had and always will…so please….don‘t die on me.” Kratos’ voice started to crack.
Kratos: *muffled, not even looking up* I LOVE YOU IN A FATHERLY WAY, LLOYD. ONLY IN A FATHERLY WAY.
Lloyd couldn’t believe his eyes or ears. This was fake! Had to be. Kratos Aurion…The Kratos Aurion…crying and saying “I love you”? Oh…man, Lloyd’s anger and grief got the best of him……He started pounding on Kratos’ chest, crying and sobbing to let him go, it was all fake. Kratos wouldn’t let go, instead he hugged him even tighter. He couldn’t lose his only treasure that kept him sane…..No, he’d never lose him…he would die for his angel.
Zelos: *Thoroughly squicked* Oh, ew.
“Lloyd, if this was fake...then what is the point of being here? I love you; dammit…..I’ll never let you go…. Not now…not ever….So shut up and let me love you.” His grip was so strong that it nearly suffocated Lloyd. Lloyd’s ranting stopped….but the crying didn’t……
Zelos: He was crying because he realized he was in a badfic.
Kratos and Lloyd: AMEN.
He cried tears of happiness……He could live…again, for Kratos.
Lloyd: *Crying tears of blood. BLOOD, I TELL YOU!*
The moon shone brightly on the couple…. It was a beautiful sight…….So blissful.
Kratos: A beautiful sight…in hell, maybe.
Kratos’ gorgeous wings came out and they wrapped around the couple in a warm hug. Lloyd lifted his head and his wonderful eyes met Kratos’ eyes again.
Zelos: *Cracks up*’Gorgeous wings?’ ‘Wonderful eyes?!’ OH GOD THAT’S RICH.
“I love you dad. I love you.” He wrapped his arms around Kratos’ waist.
Kratos and Lloyd: *Stare in horror*
Kratos brought his face down and placed his lips gently on Lloyd’s.
Kratos and Lloyd: …….WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Astarael: …oh, so those rumors I’d been hearing about you two were true?
Kratos and Lloyd: *KERSNAP!*
Their soft lips meshed together. It was wonderful. That gentle kiss was so magical…..and it went on for some time too.
*Kratos and Lloyd both draw their wings, floating up in the air…*
They parted and looked in each other’s eyes. Lloyd blushed and laid his head down on Kratos’ warm chest. He heard Kratos’ heartbeat…..It was synchronized with his! This was a match made in heaven.
Kratos: Sacred powers…
Lloyd: O fire of purity…
Zelos: *Yanks Astarael down* GET THE HELL DOWN!
Kratos lifted Lloyd’s head again. “Lloyd….God, you’re so beautiful.” Lloyd couldn’t help but blush harder this time. Their lips connected again in a soft kiss.
Kratos: Cast thy purifying light upon these Corrupt souls! Rest in piece, sinners! JUDGMENT!
Lloyd: Burn out the darkness which lies within this soul and fling the ashes into eternity!
We of the management apologize, as those two have destroyed the theater. Again.
…We’re making them pay this time.
They parted and looked into each other’s eyes again.
Kratos and Lloyd: *Now fully restrained*
Zelos: *Gets up* Man, I thought I was going to die…
Astarael: *Gets up as well* …That was fun.
Zelos: WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?
Astarael: I’m a demon, idiot.
They spent the night under the stars, arm-in-arm. It was pure bliss for them. As long as they had each other, they were an entity….one entity, one being……..
Kratos and Lloyd: *Twitch*
Kratos: NO. NO IT IS NOT.
Lloyd: IN FACT, IT’S HORRIBLE.
Zelos: IT BURNS US, PRECIOUS! IT BURNS US!
Astarael: …Door’s unlocked.
*All make a mad dash for the door, except Astarael, who grins into the darkness*
Astarael: …I think I could get used to this place…
