Chapter 43: In pursuit of justice
Strangers in a strange land, in a time where they did not belong. Led by someone they had only met hours ago, a stranger yet someone wrapped in a familiar predicament. It is easy to form a bond over shared treason. Even easier to form one over revenge. Disguised as justice. Or justice disguised as revenge. It did not matter. Only the end-goal mattered. Halfway between the familiar and the unknown, the hunt waited. Waited for their newest member to take up the mantle of a leader. Teaching them how to hunt..how to see.
“To see…” Aurora repeats, “so I can weave the aurora again..” Slightly confused Shana looks at her, vaguely knowing what it is that she wants, but unsure how to deliver. “She needs an idea about where to go.” Jures voice resonates through her mind. “ We have set you on the right path, but now we need you to help us find the direction in which to proceed.

Chapter 42:The Snow-haired Ice-blue-eyed hunter
Slowly and carefully, as if afraid rising up hastily will shatter her newfound appearance, the little girl who was once a flamehaze stands up. The process has rendered her a bit numb, but she can feel how power is slowly returning within her veins, slowly advancing through her body. It feels..primal, raw, and above all cold, so much different from Alastor’s blazing infernal might. And yet, the difference does not bother her, the cold does not chill her body anymore. It actually enhances it, becomes a part of her until the pale-skinned girl can no longer tell where her body ends and the hail and snowfall begins.
Her new snow-white hair floats up and around her face, just like it used to do when they sparkled with Alastor's crimson flame. But now instead of blazes, embers and sparks, her hair emits snowflakes and tiny icicle crystals. For some reason Shana feels empty and full inside simultaneously. It has nothing to do with Alastor,

Chapter 41: When Ash becomes Ice
Silently Shana watches how the long forgotten crimson lords take form as she drinks in every detail of their appearances. She feels..moved by their story, even if while all of it played out long before she was born or became a flamehaze, even while normally anything coming from Guze should be considered hostile unless proven otherwise…
For some reason she wants to burn all of them into her mind forever, show them that they wil never be fully forgotten, at least not by her!
The frigid air is filled with some form of energy, no electricity almost.
These..ghostly crimson  denizens hunger for justice..revenge.
‘That is what binds them!’ she understands.
The ghosts of denizens and flamehazes, different, but now under a single banner, unified by that one goal: To seek revenge on the very beings that took away all they had, all they were.
A goal she now shared.

"He...created a horror.
Our despair, our hate, our pain…our deaths..from both sides..were a massive catalyst.
Fuel for his dark grand design.
The Nightwalker laughed at us, a laugh ushered in the joy of our torment.
It was probably the first creation you could call a true curse in the world of man. It was nothing compared to The Black he had taught us…not only was this more malicious, powerful…it actually was bigger than any type of Affinity or spell known at that point in time.
You see, even in these days the uses of existence were largely unknown.
We knew we ate it to be able to manifest into this world, we knew it had some interesting capacities, the first crude incantations were just discovered, treasuretools were an entirely new phenomenon all together..it was all child’s play when compared to the thing that was being forced into existence.
This massive…thing…the curse he had wrought…it spanned the nigh

“What happened? We..almost perished “,Jures responds.
“You see, we did not stand guard. Why would we? We were so far up north, in all those millennia nobody ever came here but us. This was our home. The heart of the hunt, the only structure we ever cared to build, made out of ice from a time before even we set foot in this dimension: The Wild Court.
Our arrogance became our downfall. Silent as thieves they came. And everywhere they went, our blood and flames drenched the ground. Before we knew what was going on, the hunt was thinned by almost a fifth of our numbers. By the time we had driven them out, The Wild Court had lost its colour of blue ice. It was now a deep red. This far north, there was no dawn. Just eternal night. In the shadows of the night, we could not believe what had happened: A third of the hunt, gone. By how many Branded?
Nobody knew. Nor  did we knew how they knew where we were. Or how to even get here. What

Chapter 38: Lords of the hunt - Part 1
“My story started a long time ago” , Jures begins.
“Before the  first great civilizations of man, before the Ancient War, the Karka, the Rising, even before most flamehaze. This world was bigger, wilder, uncharted, but above all, it was wild.
And from the wilds of  Guze, we came.
I am sure we were not the first of the Denizens to cross the space between dimensions to manifest ourselves on earthen soil, but we were close.
Back then, crossing the rift between worlds was still dangerous and uncharted, only the bravest among us dared to cross.
And that we were.
We were grand, we were beautiful, we were fearless, we were everything and more..but above all, we were hunters.
The thrill of the hunt for food, not just sapping all existence out of a creature, no, but fighting them in combat, breaking their weapons, destroying their armor, taking away hope..

“Balance..”
Each letter slowly rolls of Jures his transparent tongue, as if tasting the word and all of its meanings.
“To take back what is yours...
So that is your story.
A small story, but that is not unusual, considering you do not seem to have been a flamehaze for a long time yet.
A small story indeed...but..maybe your story is just beginning.”
“While ours is ending”, Jures says while making a wide gesture, as if pointing at a crowd.
But if there is anyone else, they are invisible for Shana’s eyes.
“You speak of what you view as wrong” the ghostly denizen continues.
“Yet in your quest for strength you ask, without knowing from who you are asking.
What you ask, would change you forever.
And if you hesitate, it will kill you.
Force you to wander without form, just another lost soul.

Chapter 36: Whatever the cost
The eerie silence around her fades away after her desperate outcry.
Silence replaced by..it’s hard for her to describe.
Faint whispers in the wind, not enough to make out words, just loud enough to understand they are part of some sort of language.
Murmuring in the forest, so quiet it could just as well be a figment of her imagination.
Sounding...surprised? aggressive? inconclusive? wondering?
Discussing...something?
Shadows..within the dark forest depths..no footsteps..no echoes.
Is there anything there?
Anyone?
She cannot be sure.
“If I ask for help...in a place like this who..or what...would answer such a plea?” Shana asks herself.
It certainly is a risk, considering the situation she is in.
Her chances could not be any worse.
A weakened little girl leaving a trail of blood could attract many things...many predators..
Does such a great risk truly bring great reward?

Chapter 35: When A Flame Has Become Ash
The world feels..cold.
A distant part of her mind compares it to floating in a liquid darkness, as if there is water all around her..cold and somehow bottomless. “No bottom beneath me and no surface above me” Shana concludes her mental exercise.Something is wrong. The world is less..intense. As if there is no world, but instead it is like a game, or a painting. It does not feel real. Still, somehow she can breathe normally even without Alastor’s flame, something that she would never be able to do if she truly was underwater in some way. “Where…am I…? What’s happening..?”
“Alastor…What…is going on..?” she asks confused. But there comes no answer.
Not a single trace of Alastor’s usual warmth.
Then reality hits her with the the impact and force of a sledgehammer: Alastor is gone! His flame is gone! His warmth…gone!

Opgeven of op geven
Hopeloosheid,
Falen,
Er geen heil meer in zien,
Het stopzetten,
Iets opgeven,
Iemand op geven aan diens eigen leven.
Loslaten,
Wegdrijven,
Langzaam de afstand groter zien worden,
De stagnatie,
Einde accepteren,
Vertwijfeld zwaaien terwijl je achter de horizon verdwijnt.
Woede,
Frustratie,
Alweer is het niet gelukt,
Alle moeite,
De verwachtingen,
De uitkomst is hetzelfde.
Schuldvraag,
Onbegrip,
Beperkingen weer belemmeringen,
Zelfde liedje,
Identieke situaties,
Maar de conclusie verandert niet.
Geef ik je op,
Of heb ik opgegeven?
Wilde ik niet genoeg,
Of had jij geen behoefte aan mijn wil?
Overkomt het me,
Of komt het door mij?
Ik zeg dat ik je op geef.
Maar het voelt als opgeven.

Eigenlijk ben ik best wel een moeilijk mens.
Die conclusie moet ik toch wel trekken na het opruimen van een stel oude mail-accounts en het doorlezen van oude mailtjes.
Ach ja, wat doe je er aan.
Ik ben nu eenmaal lastig, gedeeltelijk om redenen bij ingewijden bekend, en ook gewoon omdat ik nu eenmaal zo ben qua karakter.
En ik leer wel bij, natuurlijk leer ik bij, maar ik betwijfel of dat ooit genoeg gaat zijn.
Als je de ene hindernis geslecht hebt is er wel een volgende barrière of valkuil om in te donderen.
Terugkijkende zijn er veel dingen waarvan ik denk: "Dat had zo niet gehoeven".
Maar tegelijkertijd: "Niet op die manier, maar ik was dan op een ander moment wel op iets anders gebotst".
C'est la vie.
En ik heb altijd mijn teckel nog.
Chapter 43: In pursuit of justice

Strangers in a strange land, in a time where they did not belong. Led by someone they had only met hours ago, a stranger yet someone wrapped in a familiar predicament. It is easy to form a bond over shared treason. Even easier to form one over revenge. Disguised as justice. Or justice disguised as revenge. It did not matter. Only the end-goal mattered. Halfway between the familiar and the unknown, the hunt waited. Waited for their newest member to take up the mantle of a leader. Teaching them how to hunt..how to see.
“To see…” Aurora repeats, “so I can weave the aurora again..” Slightly confused Shana looks at her, vaguely knowing what it is that she wants, but unsure how to deliver. “She needs an idea about where to go.” Jures voice resonates through her mind. “ We have set you on the right path, but now we need you to help us find the direction in which to proceed. Telling us will be useless, it is not how we are used to do things like this. Use the ravens, little hunter. The ravens see…and share with their master.”
A memory comes to her. Of a tall denizen...the one with the deer skull...with two ravens on his shoulders...how The Hunt sent the ravens to chart new strange lands..how what the ravens saw, the hunt knew and could go. His name.. Blodeuwedd..with Huginin and Muginin..creatures of existence that were no Rinne but something else. Something willed, created over time.

“Give the order...hunt leader...”
She closes her eyes and  feels the frost run through her  veins like a river. Suddenly she  can remember and feel how it is done, but even more, no, but most of it, she feels the instinct. Not everything can be done with words, actions or even a combination of the two. Sometimes, you need something more powerful: a feeling.

"Corvo!"
That is the word that fits the feeling the most.
A feeling of curiosity, freedom, caution, wings in the wind, the world like a map below you..
The realization of the feeling and the word spoken combine into a call for assistance, but not like an order, more of a request.
And Huginin and Muninin, ravens white as frost and pale like crystals of ice appear and start flying close to her, answering her call.
Because in her call, she not only uttered the feeling of the raven, but also that of her own will and desire, a goal that almost consumes every other thought now that the pursuit is really starting to take shape.
“As important and grave as your wish is,Snow-haired Ice-blue-eyed hunter, do not forget to enjoy the moment. Nobody ever forgets the first time they fly with my ravens.”  Blodeuwedd has materialized besides her , the eyes in the deer skull shining with a cold bright light.” Enjoy the flight of the raven as you see what they see.”

The moment he says it Shana knows how. She can see the world in front of her, but also see the world through the eyes of Huginin and Muninin as the ravens fly away over the land, charting the area in the direction her thoughts set them on: The direction of Malachite's trail. ‘A lot of grassy areas and small hills..it will be easy for Aurora to navigate through this one’ she thinks as she analyses the images the ravens share. For what seems like an eternity, all they see is grass and hills. But eventually, they start to see some signs of human activity. a dirt track, a plastic bag, thrown away soda cans, car tires carelessly left behind… She has to subdue a shiver of rage that goes through The Hunt as they are shocked and insulted by the way humans treat the land in these days. Perhaps these humans need to be taught as lesso- ‘NO, that is not your objective!’ Startled she recollects her thoughts and pushes way the anger, as this time it is not her own.
The ravens fly onward, seeing humans. But something is off. They act like humans, look like humans..but...all of them are torches...faint torches..but how can they be so weak? ‘These torches have been created recently, a matter of hours!’ Realising what happened she groans: ‘Malachite...’

Suddenly she sees it and she forgets about the fate of the torches: in the distance, a silhouette of a simple temple complex, like there are so many in Japan, remnants of the feudal era and some even from before then. Somehow she knows that this is the place. It seems deserted..or is it? Beneath the temple roof...that shadow...is that...Shana feels no need to check. She would have known even if the ravens did not spot the Nietono no Shana disrespectfully stashed away below a small berry bush, half-covered in dirt so the ravens almost missed it if not for a tiny reflection. She knows for sure. He is there.
The Hunt shivers in anticipation, as this time they are influenced by hér emotions, instead of the other way around. She has found her target. The hunt has found a target.
But for now they are still far away from there..so far away..

Her eyes narrow as she  feels the same anger she felt before; the same icy-cold fiver of rage flows inside of  her, swiftly joined by the enormous mass of feelings of the  Hunting Lords. Feeling the displeasure and the anger of all those creatures inside of her, all these entities  that feel angry towards the same creature. For their own reason, but mainly because Malachite is about to open a gate towards those monsters that took their life and nearly took their world as well. So much anger... And yet her own anger seems to be stronger,stronger and separate.  It is as if she feels angry once more because her most precious partner is now in the hybrid’s hands; the most powerful Crimson Lord in Guze, Flame of the Heavens and God of Destruction, Alastor is now in Malachites possession,  held a pathetic hostage! Not to mention her sword, Nietono no Shana, a weapon created by the hands of the most powerful Mystes, Tenmoku Ikko, better known at one point in time as the ‘Monster Torch’. The loss of her sword does not hurt as much as the loss of Alastor, but it still stings. Nietono no Shana… the sharpest oodachi, japanese longsword and the first and last weapon she  had ever weilded over the years.. now in another ones hands, almost disrespectfully… In the hands of an enemy.
In her anger Shana quickens her pace, jumping from tree to tree, running even faster than if she was on the ground. Her newly made icy sword lies in her hand with a reassuring weight, ready to strike everything that dares to stand in her way. For some reason and to her slight displeasure, Shana remembers the hybrid’s lessons as she runs, about how to focus on using her power in this warped environment. Even from this distance the corruption of existence is noticeable, she can feel the throb of it all around her.  But it does not frighten her anymore. With every step she takes, it seems that the half-denizens lessons are getting burnt into her  mind bit by bit. Finally she has started finally to understand how it works and how  to focus. Vengeance and justice are powerful motivators after all. And every step she takes, every fast leap, is making her come closer. Like a fiery..no..Iced Angel of unescapable wrath.

“My control of my strength is returning, I feel it! But it is still not enough! I must focus more! What is this overwhelming need? The Hunt? Is this truly how someone who hunts feel? Is this how predators feel when running after their victims? Is this...how a Denizen feels while hunting on his own?” She wonders as she I runs faster and faster, feeling the cold and emotion engulfing her, guiding her.
“That wound..not lethal..” Sthiss says suddenly, hovering beside her in the air as he effortlessly matches her speed, his snakebody slithering through the air andthe frost on his feathers in the setting sun making it look like he is covered in small diamonds.
“Perfect angle..Lower and he would have hit a major artery..higher and he would have punctured a vital organ... Had you stayed down...it might have closed in time..your movement made it such a serious wound...”
She continues to face forward while running, jumping from three to tree or running through open spots in the forest. But with her silence she asks the Denizen-ghost what he is trying to say, to imply. If the wound was never meant to be lethal, no, was made in almost the only way for it not to be lethal..then… “Sthiss, we need more speed.” Aurora speaks with a commanding voice, still the first in line as she channels the aurora above the trees and on the ground for all to walk on, abruptly interrupting her train of thought.

Sthiss only answers with a ruffling of his feathers. As he does, she suddenly feels a chilling wind behind yher, an icy polar wind that intensifies or calms depending on the speed of which the Snake Denizen ghost ruffles his feathers. it certainly explains the Frost part of his title.. A flash of a memory.. a pyramid like a staircase..people kneeling down…snow during the summer..worship..and just like that the images are gone again, lost in the maelstrom of hundreds of lost souls.

Meanwhile the ravens attract her attention again. They have spotted movement near the buried Nietono no Shana. This time there is no doubt: it is Malachite. the setting sun reflects of his bracelet and necklace as he grabs the longsword he stole from her. He seems...tense. He leaves the protection of the trees and temple structures and walks towards a large open area..he is waiting. And, even while she is still far away she can feel it: a feeling that causes the ravens to shriek in disgust, and The Hunt to shiver in anticipation: Something is coming. something terrible. something dark. something...from them. Something from the Six…the Karka…is there.
Shakugan no Hybrids: Chapter 43
Missed a chapter, or did you just stumble upon this tale and want to read more?
Binge-read the entire story here


Shakugan No Hybrids is a story within the Shakugan No Shana universe, following an alternate timeline.
Basically, this story picks up somewhere in the last quarter of season two.
This means that all the events from Shakugan No Shana Final never took place.
Yuji discovered the true identity of Konoe Fumina, and thus the events of the last few episodes of season two ( near christmas ) never happened either.
The start of this story kicks off in January after that christmas.
This is a co-production, based on roleplay conversations between me and :iconflame-haze--shana:

Visit her page, the amount of work she puts into her roleplaying is amazing!

AngelsWillFallFirst Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013  Hobbyist Writer

Several reasons really.

To name a few:

1. I am my own worst critic, so I rarely deem work good enough for the outside world.

2. The fan fiction that I write is a co-production, so I would never post it anywhere without talking it through first.

3. From what I have heard fanfiction.net is not really active anymore.

4. My fanfiction focuses on a single anime series, and since there are several fan groups of that anime on DA, I figured that keeping it on DA would make it easier to find an audience willing to read.

So, a plethora of reasons :)

In all honesty though, Itadaki no Hecate is my Tier 3 training ground for my dream of being a world-class author. As soon as I'm done with the series, I'm going to publish an original story of mine on fictionpress, and hope it gets turned into a novel itself.

So I'd say I take my work seriously enough. Thus, I'd really appreciate your critiques and, yes, criticism even ^^

And I can return the exchange.

Well, my Shakugan no Shana fanfics get quite a number of reviews and views every time they're updated--especially Itadaki no Hecate--but when I put anything up here I don't even get a quarter of either. I'd say FF.net is pretty much alive in comparison ^^'

Then again though... I already have some reputation from a few years ago...

Hmm... since you take your work seriously too, want to critique (not criticize, there's a difference which I'm sure you're aware of) each other so we can both improve and attract more attention from readers?

I am always open for people's opinions and feedback.
As for returning the same favor, the least I could do is read your work and voice my thoughts.
Just be aware that I am not really used to both writing and critiquing fanfiction.
As such, some things I write might frustrate you due to certain glaring flaws, and in the same way some of my opinions might seem a little unfair or harsh.
So I can only promise to give it a try and be honest if you decide that after this long post my thoughts are still welcome :)
