Great crossover, Saw is actually one of the few modern Horrors that I can stand (unlike quite a few that have come out of Hollywood over the last decade such as 'The Hitchhiker' which in my honest opinion was utter crap) but unfortunately, I haven't yet seen Saw IV or V.
I agree that it was a happy ending although I have one disagreement with the comment made at the end. I don't think that Kakuzawa was the most sane person in the room. After all that time had past, he was still obsessed with his deluded plan of a 'new world order' (so to speak) with himself as God/King.
Lucy seemed so much more sane in comparison. She could have killed him with her vectors (like she probably would have if she had not been through the 'game' herself ) but instead offered him the chance to live, it was after all his own deluded dreams of grandeur that sealed his fate.
In short, Lucy had been granted full control of her emotions (as seen in her reaction to hearing about Kouta and Yuka.) This may only be my opinion and I may well be on the road to insanity myself, but Lucy to me seemed like the sane one.
sorry if I seemed to drone on and on about that, it was not my intention to write such a long review.

While reading this I could actually hear the movies's music in my head and that's probrably the biggest praise I can give.
I never watched Elfen Lied so I fail to see the details but my only critic goes to the game in the first chapter. The grabbing key thing was too similar to one of the games in Saw 3 and I don't think that Jigsaw would ever use fire. He seemed to be a fan of steel.
I think that the perfect game for this Lucy would have been the Amanda's one in the first movie, this because it would have forced her to go against the promise she mad to Kouta.
In the second chapter, I thought that Lucy had become like the opposite of Amanda. Amanda killed every single person on her games and this Lucy actually softened her games to the point where a lot of "pacients" escaped them.

This fic appeals to my love of over the top violence, and yet it seems to flow effortlessly from both Elfen Lied and the Saw movies, if the two universes were one, Jigsaw would SO do this, he's fucked with all sorts of people equally capable of killing him: Bullets, vectors, same diff.
And Lucy, well, she needed a hobby, being on the run and avoiding the law and the mad scientists gets somewhat monotonous after a while.
Excellent work there.

Awesome! Two of my Favorite things in one crossover. Great plot too, you are really making it work. I thoroughly enjoyed the Elfen Lied manga but have yet to watch the series... shame on me for my laziness but I'm watching it this weekend! I've said it before and I'll say it again, You are my favorite author on this site! I love your stories. _ Good Work!

I agree, it is a happy ending. Twisted, but a happy ending nontheless. Very well written and yo portray it very. Thank you for allowing some of us to read kakuzawa's demise.

I loved it can you write more stuff in this style pls
| The Shortest Path chapter 2 . 1/13/2009
I dunno, I think Lucy was perfectly sane in this. She was trying to help him appreciate life! What a great person she is.
| The Shortest Path chapter 1 . 1/13/2009
You are a sick, twisted person. And that's awesome!
Also, Elfen Lied is great. It's one of the most mind-fuckingly twisted things ever. However, I have found something even worse, and I will recommend it to you, if you wish; It's called Higurashi: When They Cry.
But jeez, a cross of Saw and Elfen Lied is just... You scare me sometimes. :D

Now I could only hope that Mayu does something similar to her step-father (though he doesn't necessarily have to survive).

Seeing how so few people make it out of the films alive, and how often they are pulled back into a sequel simply to be killed off, I find the chances exceedingly low that Kakusawa would live. Speaking off, the death-rate for Jigsaw's apprentices isn't looking too hot for Lucy either...
Judging by the way you portray Lucy's reaction to the patented Jigsaw Treatment(tm), I think you might have a bad case of misaimed fandom. I know that the glaringly obvious moral dissonance of 'helping' people see the error of their ways with sadistic and often inescapable death-traps went over some peoples' heads. That's why the writers tried hitting said people over said body part with Amanda and others whom the Jigsaw Treatmen(tm) didn't quite help with their lives. As well as Jigsaw of course being a bloody fruitcake.
Sure you may feel 'alive' after surviving one of these ordeals, but damn, humans don't tend to have all their issues worked out by self-mutilation and mortal danger, or we'd have seen a few less issues with war veterans. You might even start thinking that the voices in your head have a legitimate point about all humans being bastards.
Then again, Lucy isn't really a human, so who knows...
Thinking about it again, I suppose I might have misjudged you, what with Kakusawa being Lucy's first victim (of what we see, anyway), which looks suspiciously more like revenge than altruistic motivations. Now, if it had been Kouta instead, that would certainly have put the right spin on it! Crossing the line twice is awesome that way.
And thus did Spake Odin
