This chapter. This damn chapter. I nearly gave up writing fanfiction because I never thought I would get this damn chapter written. Usually I write a first draft and it’s crap, and then it goes through a refining process during the second draft, and sometimes I can post then, other times I need a third draft. For this damn chapter? I lost track of the re-writes. Scenes just never gelled together, I constantly had to tear apart everything I’d written as terrible and unsalvageable, I realized I kept needing to add scenes, I realized I kept needing to delete scenes, and still it just never worked.

Until it did. It finally started to work. And I finally know how this is going to end. I have persevered!

I did one of these a few years back on LJ, but I found this one on Tumblr and it’s different, so I’ll resurrect this and give it a whirl. I need some escapism.

Day 1: What introduce you to Slayers?

Some (positive) comments I received after my latest chapter for The Choice got me thinking about how I started and dropped this. Pretty much, in the transition from novels to anime, some characters were about the same, some stronger, others not so much.

Sylphiel is a bit of a mixed bag as the anime did add something that I enjoyed tremendously: being able to form a friendship with Lina that really is not there in the novels. But overall, a lot of what made Sylphiel a cool character in the books was taken from her in the anime.

For the first novel as well as information about how I organized this and the purpose behind it.

Plot

Episodes 22-26 of NEXT are adapted from this novel. I went into more detail than usual in the summary because the novel explains a lot of things that the anime doesn’t and, because, it’s pivotal. And yay! Made it through the first story arc! On a sadder note, it’s the last we see of Zel, Amelia and Sylphiel. They go off to live their own lives after this. Posted in two parts because this become too long.

For previous novels. )
Plot: Loosely follows episodes 8-13 of Slayers NEXT, and introduces the character of Zuuma, though this is so greatly altered in the anime it’s barely recognizable. For the sake of argument we’ll say episode 7 & 10 of Revolution. One major difference is that Zel does not join our band of heroes for this adventure. The good news is Amelia finally makes her debut! Plot and character analysis below!
For Xellos, though, we have to wait for the next book. )

For information about the purpose of this and how I organize things, as well as the analysis of the first novel, click here.

For the second novel, the Sorcerer of Atlas, click here.

Plot: Episodes 13-26 of the anime loosely follow this novel. Perhaps the biggest difference is that Amelia has had yet to make her debut (we’ll have to wait for that in the next novel) while Lantz joins in on the fun. Anyway, brief summary below.

And, oh yes, spoilers! )

Yes, I wrote two fanfics back in the day, and in honor of the new The Slayers series, I'm reposting one. The other I'm taking down because it's my version of the fourth season, and I always maintained I would take it down if they ever did a bona fide 4th season. It's a weird thing with me.

Title: Please Remember Me
Pairing: Lina/Gourry, Zel/Amelia
Words: 13036
Plot: A lovely day turns deadly when a monster attacks, leaving Gourry to find a new purpose in life.
Warning: Major character death.

Chapter 1: If I Could I Would Always Keep You Safe. )

The second essay that I'm dusting off. Whoa, nostalgia trip!

Where I gush about Amelia, Sylphiel and Gourry. Why is it that I never gushed over Zel? Hmmm... )
