This was probably the most awsomest Coraline fanfic ever!
BTW, the quote the SWAT officer said when he came was just priceless.

TO THE CHARACTERS:
Watch your future.
Evaluate your decisions.
Prepare to die.

"You have no friends with you now! You have no stone, no cat, no chance to cheat! No one is coming to save you, Coraline! You're going to -"
And you honestly expect me to believe that WSS was a one-off?
That's pretty much an exact summary of Coraline's psychiatric problems in Narodnaya.
One word, one that both you and I know, belongs at the end of that sentence.
"No one is coming to save you, Coraline."
There is no way out.
There is only one way to win.
What is that way?
You won't like it at all.
Every time he did, the soul stirred and glowed in his gloved hand, and each time a tiny voice whispered in his ear.
are you here to take us out to take us away from her
hollow it hurts it hurts she wouldn't stop hurting
please I want my mommy why can't I leave
Each one left a little scar on Wybie's soul as he heard it, as he yearned to reach out to each tiny voice and reassure it, You're not alone. You're free. You're going wherever souls go.
And what his eyes witnessed as he sped past each metal chair didn't help. Disturbingly personal touches surfaced from time to time among the rags of clothes amidst the dust. The remains of a little flower bonnet here. A real, tiny, wooden button. A scrap of carefully embroidered lace.
Once, he saw something lying at the foot of one chair. He stopped to look at it, and saw it was a dusty teddy bear.
Next to it, there lay a pair of shoes hardly big enough for a three-year old.
He fought the urge to dry-heave, grabbed the little soul, want teddy it's cold, and ran on through the endless memories, through the endless horrors.
i love you
(There's no such thing as an ending. Only consequences, which breed consequences of their own. Coraline, much later, would come to appreciate that.)
Why would you put a sentence like THAT in a one-off?
"You will die screaming, you little speck," she hissed.
Unlikely as it is, it has some possibility.
What's the total up to now? Five? Six? More?
Coraline had followed the painstakingly-drilled instructions of Hwai-min. She had done her best to close off her fear for herself, closing it away in a compartment of her mind to be released and dealt with later. She was doing all she could to approach the fight in a careful and controlled way. She was doing all she could, period.
But she felt, with a growing and hollow and inevitable sensation, that that wouldn't be enough. She was almost certainly going to lose.
Something felt broken in Coraline. Or maybe nothing was, and it was meant to hurt this much when you got gut-punched by something the size of the Czarina.
She had never felt so tired, had never wanted so badly to just lie down and shut the world away. She'd failed. She'd been stupid to come, she didn't have a hope, all that could happen was that Wybie and Maria could get away (but they wouldn't leave her alone) and she could hold the Czarina here long enough to …
Coraline watched it with dark satisfaction and a grim smile, the fires reflected in her eyes. It wasn't a reassuring expression, especially against an all-red side of her face.
"NO MERCY FOR YOU, NO MERCY!" she screamed, from a harsh and torn throat, as she fell into a scuttle made strange by her useless, hanging limbs. "YOU WILL SUFFER AS YOU HAVE NEVER SUFFERED!"
"YOUR EYES WILL BE TORN OUT, YOUR SKIN WILL BE FLAYED FROM YOUR FLESH, YOUR FLESH WILL BE SCOURGED FROM YOUR BONES..."
"...YOU WILL BEG FOR DEATH, YOUR BLOOD WILL FLOW, YOUR BONES WILL BE SHATTERED ONE BY ONE..."
"...AND I WILL THIRST AND BREAK AND KILL AND KILL AND KILL..."
Oh, nothing. No, none of the passages that I've listed have any relation at all to Narodnaya. No, Narodnaya is about Harry Potter fighting moon-Nazis while Light Yagami uses his Death Note to kill them all off, but they're super-epic respawning-demon moon-Nazis, so they can't die.
This isn't the end of this particular story. At some point in the hopefully-not-too-distant future, I plan to begin writing a followup to this, at the moment entitled 'The Ellipse'.
Until then, stay safe, keep reading stuff, and if a little door appears in your living room, then for the love of god, /don't go near/.
And if I want it to come?
Even awesome-er on a second read. Now, I can also make some actual progress on Some Recognition.
Gonna be harder than /fuck/ though, isn't it?

In another set of circumstances, "suiting up" could have entailed something entirely different.
For example, were the trio properly prepared for what awaited them, suiting up would have consisted of a drawn-out montage where body armour was equipped, matte-black carapaces covering dull kevlar. Weapons capable of massacring armies would have been assembled, ammo would have been stuffed into spare pouches, bandoleers would have swung heavily with grenades and throwing knives.
Your pants are on fire. Are they not?
You keep saying that 'WSS was originally a one-off'.
I applaud you for your lies, and that I've decided to burn my ticket now to find this.
And I was planning on saving it for chapter 16 of Narodnaya, but I already know the ending of the epilogue. Wasn't that hard to find, what with the 'hope' you keep advertising, and my magical probability coins assure me that I'm right.
*clap clap clap*
"Oh, certainly. And if we're lucky, a professional wizard will come teleporting out of nowhere and solve all our problems."
Looks like I'm going to have to troll that.
Anyway, that's three I've recorded. I'll have to go through the first nine again later...

I've seen, oh, ten references to Narodnaya in here so far.
Don't lie to me. WSS was /not/ a one-off.
Let's take a look at some of the evidence.
She'd thought they'd have an /army/ on their side.
"He means to forget what is right and to run," spat Shane the tuxedo cat. "He is so crippled by his fear that he would rather..."
That's just in this chapter.
And if you /aren't/ lying? Well done, what with going through your writing and doing a foreshadowing check.

This is good, I know its all ready finished ,and your on the third one but still, this...is...good.
| Sonosublime chapter 14 . 1/5/2012
Geez. Coraline, you're one badass mofo, you know that?
The death scene of the Beldam was quite sad, bravo on invoking sympathy for a villain like that!
Anyway, congrats on this fantastic story. Good luck with your future works.
| Sonosublime chapter 1 . 1/3/2012
Love it so far. Everyone is in character, and the humour is quite clever. the teacher calling her Caroline was a nice little touch. I also like the continuity - how the story picks up right where the movie left off.

XD Wybie is so great...meddling kids... Btw, I LOVED the thing about his back brace and that being the reason he wore the jacket all the time. AND how you brought it back up and had it save his cute, biracial butt! That was FANTASTONISHING. I can't wait to read the next part. :)
| TickleTheToast chapter 8 . 10/26/2011
! Grimalkin! :D Sorry, had to point out that I got the reference.

Fantastic story. I was on the edge of my seat reading it.
