So it's been a while since I wrote anything since Scheme and like I promised at the end of that story here's a Ren/Yuu for all of you that I accidently turned into fans of that pairing =3 Anyway I've kinda been holding onto this story because I actually haven't figured the plot out properly yet. I mean most of its done of course but I havent been able to get a set timeline yet. Anyway i figured may as well post the first chapter and see how things go for now.
So this is a fantasy based AU taking place in a sort of Post Apocalypse era but in this specific world not our irl world. This is more the prologue than anything else but it also counts as a chapter to be honest =/ This story also crosses over with some of the other seasons, most specific is Frontier. I also use the JPN names so please bare with that.
pairing wise there is a mixture of het and yaoi. This will be an eventual Ren/Yuu (and i say that meaning I'm drawing the pairing out instead of just boy meets boy and falls in love at first sight kinda thing. I'm developing their relationship as the story goes) There is also without a doubt TagiRyou. There is some KiriTai as well as KiriNe (but barely any there I think) Some of you might find this next one weird but I also have Airu/Hideaki. do not ask how that came about. I dont know. I also have my Frontier OTP Takuya/Kouichi. yes, KOUICHI, not Kouji. no clue why I like that pairing but i do.
So there's the break down I guess. Hope you enjoy the first installment. Please dont expect frequent updates on this though, I'm still writing chapter 3 right now. Like I said, this is still being put together. I just felt the urge to post it.
As usual Digimon is not mine. Enjoy~
They say that long ago the powers of light and dark existed in an equal balance. The guardians of both powers existed solely to keep the peace in the world below. That world was wear humans lived, oblivious to the powers that existed around them. It was only when an unsuspecting human accidently crossed over into the realms did that peace become lost.
Which realm did they enter? To this day nobody knows but many suspects it be the realm of darkness. This assumption comes from the warped way humanity thinks now, seeing the difference between light and dark, good and evil as black and white. Only few remain who still know of the truth between these powers. Only those few have the power to return the peace.
But not even they know of the role they must play.
"We're gonna get caught!"
"Stop complaining and run!"
There were nothing but rocks and sand in the area and three young teenagers ran quickly over the rough terrain. Behind them what could only be assumed as wolf-like shadows followed, glowing red eyes never loosing sight of them and inhuman growls reverberated around them.
A frustrated cry was heard before the only female in the group spoke up once more, her speech broken due to her heavy breathing.
"We're not going to make it!" She whined, "We're screwed! We shouldn't have entered the temple!"
"I thought I told you to shut up and run!"
"Ren!" The other male snapped before focusing his attention back on the girl, "There's nothing we can do about it anymore."
"But we can't outrun them!" The girl complained, "No one ever outruns Shadow Hounds!"
Ren let out a frustrated yell before picking up the pace a bit, holding the scrolls under his arm a little closer. This was his life for as long as he could remember. His parents were killed when he was just a child and he lived on the street, feared by everyone he met. No one wanted a Chaos Child. His red eyes drove away everyone.
When he turned ten he started plundering old buildings, temples, castles, any place that would have valuables worthy to sell. That's how he met these two. Ryouma and Airu. The three of them formed a team and would steal for whoever hired them. They were well known for finding the rarest objects in any place.
"Ren, I hate to ask but-!" Ryouma cut off as he nearly tripped, focusing instead on gaining his balance and not loosing speed. The Hounds were almost on them. Ren groaned, knowing exactly what Ryouma was referring too. An ability only a Chaos Child had.
He skid to a halt, turning to face the Shadow Hounds, the wind blowing his tattered cloak behind him and his hood falling off. His hair flew into his face and he stared down at the Hounds, raising his free hand.
"Vanish you stupid mongrels!" He snapped as a light appeared in front of him. It shot out like the aftershock of an explosion, the Shadow Hounds blown away like the sand below their feet. Once the dust had cleared and he was sure there were no more Hounds around them Ren let himself collapse to his knees. Every time he used his power he felt drained.
"Are you okay Ren?" Airu asked dropping down next to him. Ren didn't respond at first, allowing himself to take in some much needed breath from both the running and the use of his power. Finally he nodded.
"I'm sorry for asking you to do that…" Ryouma apologized as he stood by Ren. Ren turned his red eyes up to Ryouma before giving a shrug.
"It's not like there was any other choice though," He stated simple, finally getting back up on his feet, "Anyway let's go. The old man is waiting for us, right?"
"Right." The others agreed.
"Yuu? Is something wrong?" The blond haired, blue eyed teen stood up from his chair in the library, walking over to the large window that acted as a wall. His sister, Nene remained seated but kept her confused gaze on her younger brother.
Yuu didn't respond to his sisters concern, instead he placed a hand on the window, his near white blue eyes focusing on the wasteland outside of the city walls. It had only been for a moment but he could have sworn he felt something pull at him. Something strange tugging at a part of him that he himself couldn't quite find. It wasn't the first time it had happened either but it was something he couldn't quite explain. It was like there was someone else out there and he was connected to that person through some strange bond.
"…Him again…" He muttered to himself. Yuu had been raised in a well off household in these times. Down in the city below people were struggling to survive. According to his sister his family had been the same until he was born. His Light Blue eyes, symbols of all things good. He was Heavens Child and that was what allowed them to live a comfortable life.
…He hated it.
"Yuu…" Nene walked up behind him, placing a hand on his shoulder. He turned his gaze over to her, staring at her darker blue eyes. He envied them.
"Is it him again?" She asked. Nene was the only one he had told about the feelings he got at times. Yuu sighed and nodded his head, turning his gaze back out the window.
"I want to find him…" He said, "He's out there…we're connected…and I need to know why…"
"Don't worry about it," Nene said with a smile, "If fate allows it I'm sure the two of you will meet soon."
"Fate is what turned this world upside down…" Yuu muttered as his gaze turned to the dirty streets of the city, "I don't want to live my life ruled by Fate." Nene's smile disappeared at her brothers words and she sighed. Yuu told her everything so it was no secret to her how much he hated being Heavens Child. She herself turned her gaze from Yuu to the world outside the window.
What was this world like before Chaos claimed it.
"How much longer must we wait?"
"They will meet soon Brother. Don't worry."
"I can't help it…" A sigh followed before the sentence continued, "We need to save this world. We can't exist until they meet."
There was a long pause before the second responded.
"Ren first needs to realize his connection."
"And Yuu needs to discover his power."
"Power…?"Yuu stared at the dark space ahead of him, the conversations that usually take place here suddenly making less sense than usual. There were two separate gasps heard before two identical boys appeared in the area, confusion clear in their dark blue eyes. The three stared at each other in silence for a long period of time before finally one of the twins smiled.
"Well…it's about time…" He whispered.
Yuu shot up from the couch, his eyes wide and breathing coming in heavy gasps. He was used to those dreams, they happened at least once a week. Always the same setting. A dark blue area, no floors, walls, windows, just a space that existed no where yet everywhere at the same time. Those voices were always there as well. They had strange conversations, the topic never clear and never had they used names before, especially his. And never had he seen their faces.
"….Ren…" He whispered the name, it falling from his tongue smoothly. A chuckle echoed through his head and Yuu's eyes widened once more, turning to look around the room in order to find the source of the laughter. Instead all he got was the sound of the door opening and his sister and father entering the room.
"Ah Yuu," His Father greeted, "I see you finally woke up." Yuu simply nodded, pushing aside the strange laughter from his mind and instead focusing on his Father, Sister and the three guests behind them. They wore tattered cloaks, hoods up on all three so their faces remained hidden.
"Yuu, you remember that old Temple out in the dessert that I told you about?" His Father asked. Yuu nodded once more and his Father turned to the three cloaked strangers, "Well I hired these three to retrieve some old scrolls from there. The tombs inside that temple held important information relating to the Balance."
The Balance was a term that referred to the period where Peace and Tranquility existed in the world and how it was destroyed in the first place. It also held the truth about the Children of Heaven and Chaos. Unfortunately no one knew that truth yet.
"You failed to mention the Shadow Hounds!" The girl snapped. The Boy in the middle raised his arm a little in front of her as if telling her to calm down silently. Yuu however was staring intently at the other boy in the group who appeared to not be paying attention to the conversation, which Yuu himself had tuned out.
There was something about that boy, something familiar, but he couldn't quite place it. He continued to stare; trying hard to find out what it was about this boy he was so drawn too. As if sensing his gaze the boy turned and looked directly at Yuu. Red met Light Blue and Yuu's eyes widened in sudden realization.
"Ren." His voice was clear, cutting through his father's explanation like a knife. His Father turned to look at him in confusion as did Nene's while the red eyed boy stared in shock. Yuu was sure of it now. This was the boy he had been sensing all these years. This was the boy those twins had been talking about. Somehow he and this boy were connected, and now that they had met there was no way they could go back.
Ok there we have it. I hope you enjoyed it and was able to follow it alright. No clue when i'll post chp 2 though. It's ready and everything but I atleast want to finish chp 3 before posting it.
