Killer7 stories are quite rare, crossovers even more so. So I decided to try my hand at it. Killer7 is a bit of an obscure title, and even those who have played it are not quite sure what exactly the game meant, as it's full of symbolism and references to both Eastern and Western cultures.

But with that said, you don't need to have played the game to be able to read this story, though it is recommended.

Intro: First Blood

Louise Françoise le Blanc de La Vallière lay on the grass in a pool of blood, courtesy of a bullet to the brain.

She wasn't alone in that respect. Her familiar, just recently summoned, is in a similar state, blood gushing out of his neck and mouth, a golden gun clutched in his right hand.

The crowd of students around them were horrified at what they had just seen. Some vomited, some screamed, some cried, some passed out, and some did a combination of the four.

When Louise stepped up to summon her familiar, they never expected she would summon a human; a dark skinned child wearing a red shirt and black pants, with his knees on the floor and his back facing his summoner.

After a bit of mocking from the students, claiming that she summoned a commoner, Louise stomped up to the boy, right behind him. Just as she leaned over to turn him around, a loud gunshot filled the courtyard, and then a spray of blood erupted from the girl and her familiar.

Screams. Colbert, in the blink of an eye, was next to the prone forms, casting as many healing spells as he knew while yelling out to the students to get the school healer, but it was far too late. Louise was dead, and the boy would soon follow.

Wrought with sadness and disappointment in himself for allowing this to happen to a student and for having the children see the sight of death, Colbert moved to make preparations for the youngest Valliere's untimely demise. But just as he began to guide the students out of the courtyard, Louise's body exploded.

But no, it wasn't a normal explosion. It was an explosion of blood.

A countless number of the crimson droplets floated in the air, writhing and pulsating. The students panicked, some running out of the courtyard screaming while others watched the spectacle in grotesque fascination.

The particles of blood floated in the air for a few moments before converging on the boy with the golden gun, covering his form in a blanket of red, his body appearing to be absorbed into it as the blood converged and twisted all the while. The blood floated for another moment and then shaped itself into a human form. Blood turned to skin and hair, then to clothes, changed color, and then disappeared entirely. The students and the teacher couldn't believe it, because standing where two corpses once laid, was Louise, completely unharmed like nothing happened, carrying a black suitcase that was almost as tall and wide as she was...

...with the familiar runes blazing on her left hand.

Colbert ran up to the pink haired girl, as did many of the students.

"Miss Valliere!" Colbert shouted in relief, casting a diagnostic spell in case the girl was still harmed,"You're alive! Thank the Founder!" The pink haired girl didn't respond, merely turning her head and raising an eyebrow at the professor.

"Valliere?" The pink haired girl asked. "Who is Valliere?"

Colbert became worried. Could she have gotten brain damage from the gunshot? "Th- That's you of course," he said uneasily, "Louise Françoise le Blanc de La Vallière, of the House Vallière!"

Louise stared at the professor before shaking her head. "I'm sorry, but I am not this Valliere that you speak of." Ignoring the confused looks, she fully turned to the professor and stood a little straighter, chest out and chin held up high.

"My name is Louise Smith, member of the Killer7."

And then Louise turned and walked away.

Colbert stopped her with a hand on her shoulder. Louise looked at the man with a raised eyebrow.

"You're coming with me to see the Headmaster immediately!" he exclaimed.

"I'm busy," was the former Valliere's cool reply.

Colbert shook his head, "I'm afraid there isn't a choice Ms. Valliere."

"It's Smith," she corrected, "and there's no way you're letting this go, are you?" At Colbert's hard look, Louise sighed. "Fine. I'll go along with you for now."

Killer7 is a property of Suda51, Grasshopper Manufacture, and Capcom. Zero no Tsukaima was written by Noboru Yamaguchi and illustrated by Eiji Usatsuka and its anime was produced by J.C. Staff. I am in now way affiliated with these people. I am just a fan of both works who thought to combine the two settings.

I've already got a few chapters written out, but I want to gauge how this does before posting. Please leave a review and tell me what you think. Critiques are highly welcomed!
