Slayers, A Stray Child, Part 3

Part 3. The paddle dipped into the dark water, catching against mud and plant-matter and gods only knew what else. Filia surveyed the scene from her perch on the boards that crossed from one side of the boat to another. The splash of the oar propelling her tiny craft forward was a sharp contrast to the quiet around her. Even the clouds that had riddled the town with raindrops had ceased their onslaught, though the sky threatened that this reprieve could be short-lived. The rooftops that peeked out from the newly created sea were empty. There was not a man, woman or child in sight, awaiting rescue from the high ground. Not even so much as the

Slayers - The Past - Xellos/Filia

The Past. In a rush of golden wings, Milgazia landed. The mouth of the cave was ahead of him, dark, save a few fairy lights. But it was the light behind him that was much more worrying than the blackness ahead. He shook his reptilian head at this thought. The Pillar of Light was far, far away. No doubt the followers of the Fire Dragon King would be looking into the matter with all the vigorous purpose that they were known for. Milgazia could only hope to protect those in his province. The remnant on Dragon's Peak had more than enough to attend to without borrowing troubles. He stepped into the cavern—a faraway retreat from the bustli

Slayers, Diary of a Dragon, Ch. 26

Chapter 26. It’s a Small Outer World After All. Curiosity Ferry. 4:05 pm. I heard it so many times today—“Have a wonderful day!”—with the emphasis on “wonder.” I heard it from uniformed ride attendants, gift shop workers, people in animal mascot get-ups, and costumed princesses. Have a wonderful day. It seemed to be Wonder Island’s motto—its bit of cheerfulness to keep with you all day and take with you even after you leave. Well, you know what? I did. I did have a wonderful day. And it’s been so long since I could say that and be sincere about it that I’m just so relieved an

Slayers-A Little Opposition 28

Chapter 28. I… You. Stanley was shaking in fear, his eyes unable to leave the body of the rapidly cooling Lieutenant Drash. He sank to his knees as Amelia walked away from him and took up a place at Zelgadis's side. Lina's eyes widened from her balcony hiding place. "I see," she said. "Zel only drew out the fight so long to buy enough time for the Lafas Seed on Amelia to wear off." She paused and thought for a moment. "…That's awfully codependent when you think about it." Zelgadis dropped his useless, broken sword, and shared a determined look with Amelia before the two turned their gazes back on the sniveling Stanley. The once p

Slayers- Diplomacy Ch.26

Chapter 26. The Choice. "I've… I've got to go," Filia said, sitting up in bed and moving away from the hand that reached out to stroke her cheek. Xellos withdrew his hand and looked at her somewhat coldly from his perch next to her. Finally he said: "Perhaps you didn't notice the fact that this isn't a table." "I noticed," Filia said, getting out of bed. "…And I appreciate that," she felt moved to add at the disapproving look on his face. "But this is the last day of the summit." "It is," Xellos said, as if this hardly mattered. "There are things I've still got to do, and people I've still got to talk to," Filia said. "This'll

Slayers Fanfic - The Oracle's

Prologue. It was a good-bye meal of sorts after the commotion that had been following them all this time. Well, not really. They wouldn't call it that. After all, Filia had already gone on her own way and Xellos had disappeared soon after that. Tomorrow Lina and Gourry would be going off on their own to find treasure, cause trouble, and eat up a storm across the land. Amelia would be heading back to Seyruun at sunrise as well. After all, princesses can't just go wandering all the time if they're responsible, she found herself thinking somewhat bitterly. And Zelgadis? Well, you can guess. "Mister Zelgadis?" Amelia asked tentatively. The din

Slayers, From Now On Ch. 12

"If I loved you, time and again I would try to say all I'd want you to know. If I loved you, words wouldn't come in an easy way—round in circles they'd go. Longing to tell you, but afraid and shy—I'd let my golden chances pass me by. Soon you'd leave me—off you would go in the mist of day, never, never to know how I loved you—if I loved you." ~Carousel Chapter 12. Putting a Name to It. The clamor in the room was muffled, his peripheral vision an inconsequential blur of business with the only clear point being Filia herself, everything in the world quieted to give prominence to the one thought that filled Xellos's wo

Premonition of a Meeting - Commission

Dark clouds swirled around her like ribbons. Golden contrails of stars sparkled in the blackness. Iris blinked. "Where… am I?" she said out loud. She felt strange. It was as though none of this was real. She looked down at herself. Her bare skin shimmered as though lit from within by some sort of internal fire. She curled her toes and realized she was standing on nothing. She was beholden to a force greater than gravity, and it was gently cradling her in its invisible grasp. A dream? Iris thought to herself. That would've explained the cosmic grandeur of it all. And yet there was something about it that felt real to her, or…
