Started and completed October 16th, 2011
So, here's a new story. I'm going to warn you guys now: It's long. Expect somewhere around 100k words or so. The prologue is significantly shorter than all the other chapters, so don't worry about having a billion chapters. There's 27 chapters in all. Another thing: take notice of the date stated above. Most of this story is already completed. There are only a few chapters left that I need to write. So while I will take any constructive criticism to heart, don't be upset if it doesn't result in any changes to the story. I do look forward to constructive criticism though, in order to help me improve my writing.
Okay! So, serious moment aside, I present to you my latest brainchild: Endless Chase! I hope you enjoy and I look forward to hearing what you guys think!
Disclaimer(s): I do not own Detective Conan or any of its characters.
Claimer(s): The story, however, is mine. Steal it, and I will find you. Hopefully.
Genre(s): Angst, Crime, Drama, Friendship, Hurt/Comfort, Romance, and Suspense (Although not necessarily in that order.)
Pairing(s): KaiShin (Kaito x Shinichi)
Warning: Angst from time to time, mild language, Shonen-ai (boy x boy love), mild violence
Summary: Shinichi has been stuck as Conan for a little over a year and is finding it harder and harder to deal with. With the Organization on the move for reasons unknown, he's back to singing his old tune and devoting his entire being (despite him coming down with a strange persistent illness) to taking them down once and for all. And somehow, he's managed to get Heiji involved. And Hakuba. And everybody else... Even KID?
"I played the game of cause and effect, choosing the cause and blindly creating the effect. Yes, I was most certainly lucky. Because in the end, it led me to him."
Cause and Effect
Cause and effect: (Noun) The concept that an action or an event will produce a certain response to the action in the form of another event.
The universe abides by the concept of cause and effect. With the decision of choosing to take one action over another, various paths open up, leading to inevitably different walks of life. It is by this means that the plausible hypothesis of "parallel worlds" was brought to life. Had a different choice been made, exactly how different would the world be?
It is because of the choices that were made that the world is as it is.
Sometimes I would wonder to myself: If I hadn't chosen as I had, would things be different?
And then, every single time, I would laugh to myself. Of course things would be different, I would think. That is the law of cause and effect.
Then again, I don't think I would change what has happened thus far. Not for the world. I've made my decisions, and while it has caused me pain from time to time, I don't regret it. I'm content where I am—happy even.
I made my choice that day, favoring my all-encompassing curiosity over my reserved sense of self-preservation. It was my decision and I've dealt with the consequences.
I've created my world around me, built it brick by brick by pushing through the path of the unknown. I never knew what lay ahead, but isn't it the same for everyone? It's simply the basis of life. Like everyone else, I made my decisions to the best of my abilities in the hopes that it would affect my future in a positive light.
Looking back, I like to think I was lucky.
I played the game of cause and effect, choosing the cause and blindly creating the effect. Yes, I was most certainly lucky.
Because in the end, it led me to him.
Cause and Effect
If that was confusing, don't worry, it gets a little easier to understand from next chapter on. If that was just perfect, I'm sorry, it gets a little easier to understand from next chapter on. Hahahaha.
Oh, and guess what? This story is updated weekly. Rejoice, readers!
And lastly: So, what do you think? Let me know!
