And at last! (Drabble #1)  

See, I finally have my Bad Education icon, mwahaha! I should go look for some more, too. Even though uploading it screwed up my userpics for some odd reason. Almost all posts I'd made in the past showed my default icon, and I'm sure I haven't been using the same one everywhere all the time. I've fixed what I could, but... *shakes head*

Anyway, here's the long overdue drabble for iggy_lovechild who requested something surprising. Seriously, I had no idea writing those could be so damn difficult! But I've made it - 100 words exactly. I rule, I rule! *ahem*

To tell the story behind this drabble - I was originally inspired for it a long time ago after I listened to Dir en grey's song 'The FINAL' and Hyde's 'Countdown'. That, and I was curious and couldn't leave some stuff from the series alone.

Disclaimer: I do not own Gundam Wing or any of its characters and make no profit off this fic.
Pairing: Implied Zechs/Treize, from Zechs's POV (sorta)
Rating: Worksafe, unfortunately
Warnings: Um...implied deaths? And it's pretty strange, I suppose. Anyway, hope you enjoy it! xD

There’s fresh sunlight streaming in, illuminating his hair, warming him, making the antique gun he’s holding glitter. A ghostly face fills his vision.


After drifting aimlessly and failing to reconcile with himself, he finally knows. In this moment of dazzling clarity, that final promise is echoing from the other side. Slipping the cold barrel into his mouth, he closes his eyes firmly, brightness flooding the room.

He remembers all –


– the kisses –


– the yearning –


– the confessions –


– the arguments –


– the shimmering glances –


– the regrets –


– the rushed mornings –


– the madness –


– the love...

T.T Aw! That's so...distressingly touching. It was really great, thank you!

...even though I'm completely clueless about Gundum Wing, other than the fact that waaaayyyy back in the day I think it was on after DBZ on Toonami. *feels old again*

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading and making me write it in the first place! *hugs*

Well, I've never even seen anything on Toonami... x_x

I can at least tell you the stuff this fic draws on. Treize got killed almost at the end of the series (sacrificed himself, actually) and even though he and Zechs were pretty much at war at the time, his last words were that he would be "waiting on the other side" for Zechs (AKA Milliardo, but whatever XD). And the gun Zechs has in this drabble is the same one he used to kill an enemy of his before (long story). The thing is, it's exactly the style of weapon Treize was apparently fond of. Thought that would be a nice touch... *grins*

I actually wanted to put more info into this fic, but I ended up cutting it all out due to the 100-word limit. ^_^;

Er...um...I see. *is still lost*

XDDD Don't worry about it. I once, uh, had a guilty pleasure in watching Gundum Seed while I was writing (*hides face* I know...I know...most people hate that series)so I know how involved the storyline tend to be.

Oh, shit. That's what I get for trying to sum it up in a few sentences. ^_^;

Never saw Seed myself, so I guess I'm no one to judge that series (although I've noticed the dislike vibes in the fandom, too). I'm just...eh, glad for your understanding! ; )
iggy_lovechild on June 1st, 2007 11:38 pm (UTC)
Well hell, I didn't see anything outwardly wrong with Gundum Seed, but I don't...know the Gundum series you know? I don't know if I'm just too ignorant to know better or if the rest of the fandom is just...over-sensitive.

Fandom sure can be too sensitive, but I have no idea if that's the case or if there really is something 'wrong' with Seed. I know I adore Gundam Wing, but then again, it's more because of the interesting characters than the plot itself (although that is good as well, I think). So either way could be true, I guess... *ponders*

Ooh, this is lovely. I love how you use the count-down and ending with 'one' and nothing after was excellent! And way to hit 100 words on the nose ^_^
See you later, instigator: Remus/Sirius3oudeteron on June 1st, 2007 11:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I feel all accomplished now. ^_^

As for ending the fic with the countdown - I did that to keep the whole thing in Zechs's perspective. (Also, I love him too much to actually write that he dies - subtext, subtext! XD) And of course, it was pleasant to play with the word count for a bit, even if a bit difficult at times...

Well, now I'm a bit depressed. VERY well done, especially with only 100 words. I don't think I could do a fan fiction in only 100 words. Wonderful job! ^_^
See you later, instigator: YoshikiLoveoudeteron on June 2nd, 2007 11:21 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you for saying that! I'm very happy you liked it. ^_^

Sorry for the depressing-ness, though... *hugs*
