29. NOtp

I don’t like Xellos paired with anyone except, perhaps, other Mazoku (though I’m still not 100% sold that Mazoku have something like love even for each other, but perhaps something based on loyalty, which they do have, or perhaps they’re into Sadomasochism with each other). It just goes against my concept of Mazoku to be loving.

I think an example of this is Rashatt in the novels. He was Gaav’s minion, but after Gaav dies rather than avenging Gaav or appearing torn up (or happy to be free from Gaav) about it, his allegiance changed to Hellmaster, the person who killed Gaav. So there’s extreme loyalty, but it’s very hierarchical and it doesn’t appear as though they have an emotional attachment to their superiors, equals or subordinates.

And I also don’t like Lina paired with anyone but Gourry, unless it was before she met him (like Lina and Naga, I don’t see it, but it doesn’t phase me much, or if she had a cute crush on the neighborhood boy before she left Zefiel City). Lina/Zel and Lina/Xellos both really aggravate me.

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

Well, it took me several months, but I finally banged this out. This novel gave me fits for a bit because of how I typically format these with the characters appearing in the order of their appearance in the series. That just wasn’t working for this novel, so it finally occurred to me this week to shake up the order and voila! I got this done. So instead of starting with Lina and ending with Memphis, I’m starting with Memphis and saving Lina for last, because Lina’s the best. Enjoy!

Much thanks to all of the translators who worked on the latter half of the series who made this possible. Especially the one who translated the 15th one, found here.

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.

Plot

Episodes 18 thru let’s say most of 22 are based off this novel. Once they get to Dragon’s Peak it should start sounding very familiar. A lot happens! Xellos’ true nature is revealed to the group. Zel and Amelia make some great leaps in character development. And Lina and Gourry’s commitment to each other grows stronger.

Sorry this took awhile. Lots of characters and a lot of stuff happened. )

Plot
Episodes 6-9 of Evolution-R were adapted from this novel. While Seigram does make another appearance, there’s little that’s recognizable from NEXT in this novel.

Yeah, this took awhile to bang out. Been one of those months. )

Plot

Oh boy. Plot elements from this novel appeared in episodes 23-26 of Prime, 9-13 of NEXT, and 9-13 of REVO, and depending on how technical you want to be, several other plotlines. In other words, they got a lot of mileage out of this story!

Third and final essay, and the one most dated by my current knowledge of fandom (Slayers was my first on line fandom). Ironically I think it's the first essay I wrote. I must also comment that in the case of Zel/Lina, people were strongly arguing that they were a cannon couple like the Harry/Hermione people, which bothered me more than anything. Ship whatever couple you want, but don't try to argue that they're cannon just because you like them.

My first and only foray into the shipping wars. Now I'm going to have to find some good Gourry/Lina fanfic. )
