Disclaimer: Woe, I hark onto you that own Sailor Moon and Gundam Wing, I don't own them, but I dream that one day I can own the largest collection of their merchandise. "The Wall," by Kansas is also something I don't own, but I hope that it will be played at my funeral.
Author's Note: Hello, peeps. Welcome to the wacky mind of Anime Monster. I know what my loyal readers are saying, "Why in the name of all that is holy and unholy is she putting out another story when she still has more to finish?"
Well the answer is simple: I'm in the mood for something new.
This story is AU for both Gundam Wing and Sailor Moon, but not too much. You'll see what I mean in the story.
Please Review, I enjoy nearly everything and can be very fond of criticism, but I don't like flames where someone shows that their IQ is smaller than their shoe size. Thanks.
WARNING: THIS IS A SONG FIC! I know not everyone likes them, but please, if you don't like them, don't read this and trash it. I worked hard on this.
The song is "The Wall," by Kansas. It is a common funeral song and a personal favorite of mine. If you haven't heard it, I suggest it. You've probably heard of "Dust in the Wind," they're by the same artists, and are really excellent songs. Anyways, I'm rambling, so I'll shut up now.
Chapter 1: "Life is cheap…"
I exited my gundam holding the black cylinder with red button on top. The detonator fit perfectly in my grasp.
"Heero! Don't do it!" Duo yelled on a vid screen inside the gundam.
"Heero! Come kill me!" Relena yelled on another.
I ignored both raising the detonator. "Life is cheap,"' I said, "especially mine." I used my thumb to depress the button.
I'm woven in a fantasy, I can't believe the things I see
The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall
And with each passing day I fell a little more like something dear was lost
It rises now before me, a dark and silent barrier between,
All I am, and all that I would ever want to be
It's just a travesty, towering, marking off the boundaries my spirit would erase
As the trigger set off the explosion my entire life flashed before my eyes. From meeting Odin Lowe (Author: See Episode Zero, for more info.) to the first time I held a gun to the first time I piloted a mobile suit to this very moment. I saw myself lose emotions that I never knew existed.
As I fell, the gundam's hatch falling beneath me, I began to become delusional. I began walking through a torched field. As I walked I noticed plants and stuff had begun to grow in the ashes. I got a feeling that this was my mind or heart manifested.
I reached a place where fires shot up before me. I could not find a way through, except running through.
I was saved from worry though by the falling. I saw the ground quickly approaching. I knew I'd break my neck because I was going to hit the ground head first and I would crumple.
When impact came, I was surprised to find it not painful. I heard the crunch and crack of bones as my spinal column became more of a pretzel than part of my central nervous system.
To pass beyond is what I seek, I fear that I may be too weak
And those are few who've seen it through to glimpse the other side,
The promised land is waiting like a maiden that is soon to be a bride
The moment is a masterpiece, the weight of indecision's in the air
It's standing there, the symbol and the sum of all that's me
It's just a travesty, towering, blocking out the light and blinding me
I want to see
I was back in the ash and standing next the fire. For what seemed like eternity I watched the flames die and extinguish themselves. I walked onto a lush green field. As I walked I noticed that every where my feet tread the grass died.
I walked for hours enjoying the lovely field, but saddened that I was killing it. 'Is this hell?' wondered, sitting down.
Suddenly I heard the sound of walking behind me. Quickly jumping up and turning around, I drew my gun, "Who are you?"
The woman before me blinked and opened her mouth…
Next Chapter: "For the World…"
I finish the song and I tell Usagi's side of the tale.
The reason these are AU, in case you didn't catch on, is that Heero and Usagi died, and they'll stay dead. At least until I say so.
