Author has written 4 stories for Chrono Cross.

Hey there! I go by Guile Mustang, or Guile, or Mustang, or GM! Looking at my pen name, you can know that I'm a fan of Guile from Chrono Cross and Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist.

My fandoms?

For anime section: Fullmetal Alchemist, Yu-Gi-Oh, Dragon Ball (including Z and GT), Digimon, One Piece, Rurouni Kenshin, One Piece, and Crush Gear (Turbo and Nitro, but Turbo preferred). I'm getting into Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann recently.

I watch Digimon season 1 to 4.

Favorite season: 3

Favorite characters from Digimon (the humans): Ishida Yamato (season 1), Ichijouji Ken (season 2), Makino Ruki (season 3), Minamoto Kouji and Kimura Kouichi (season 4)

Favorite Digimon: Wizarmon (season 1, yeah, this one isn't even a digimon partner, but he is very loyal), Wormmon (season 2), Guilmon (season 3, though many of them are likeable)

Favorite leader/goggle head: Matsuda Takato (season 3)

Favorite digi-girl: Makino Ruki (season 3)

For games, I only know Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger. Well, my fandom isn't really big. Favorite character you ask? I've mentioned it once, but in case you forget, my pen name says it all! In Chrono Trigger, I like Magus... Well, you see, lone wolves are always interesting for me.

Anything else?

Fellowship (Multi-Chapter, Work-In-Progress) *ON A MAJOR REWRITE*

Fandom: Chrono Cross

Rewrite History:

1st Rewrite: 19th May 2014

2nd Rewrite: 5th October 2014

In collaboration with Legendary Biologist and DarkHorse26. They toss the plot ideas, while I write the story.

Can now be found at deviantArt:

Also can be found at AO3:

Tvtropes Page (thanks to Ular Tua and Legendary Biologist for working on it):

Something odd with the plot and the resolutions can be found here:

Wikia Page (thanks to Fiery Blue Knight for working on it):

Note that in Japanese names, the surname is always written first, but I make an exception here to avoid confusion.


The characterization may be different from the canon because it is affected by how the story goes. Another reason is, most of the main casts are the optional characters in the canon, so we are relying on our interpretations of them.

The List

Protagonists: Ari Yamamoto (OC, male), Chikara Jikan (OC, male), Haruko Jikan (OC, female), Yoshino Kobayashi (OC, female), Akira Hayabusa (OC, male), Yukari Nosaka (OC, female), Kotaro Kuwabara (OC, male), Hachiro Jikan (OC, male), Jirou Kobayashi (OC, male), Draggy, Starky, Van, Guile (see notes below), Leah, Turnip, Pierre, Pip, Luccia, (more to come)

Antagonists: Chisiki Takashi (OC, male), The Summons (Red Wolf, Salamander, Frog Prince, Blue Whale, Sonja, Genie, Golem, Thunder Snake, Mother Ship, Grim Reaper, Unicorn, Saint), Virus and the varieties (OCs, undetermined), Skelly, (more to come)

Others: Yuriko Takizawa (OC, female), Kyousuke Kurogane (OC, male), Ami Kitao (OC, female), Kiko Kanagaki (OC, female), Toshio Yamamoto (OC, male), Michiko Yamamoto (OC, female), Naomi Kobayashi (OC, female), Nana Hida (OC, female), Eriko Jikan (OC, female), Kantaro Nosaka (OC, male), Natsume Nosaka (OC, female), Miya Nosaka (OC, female), Yusuke Nosaka (OC, male), Satoko Matsuzawa (OC, female), Ryuichi Musou (OC, male), Hiroshi Hashimoto (OC, male), Wanda (OC, female), Phoenix (OC, female), Daniel (OC, male), Zan (OC, male), Olga (OC, female), Maggie (OC, female), Viper, Riddel, Glenn, Karsh, Zoah, Marcy, Zappa, Zippa, Fortune Teller, Starky's Star Guardian, (more to come)

Note that in the story, the protagonists and the antagonists may change side.

Guile has three distinct characters: Present/Adult Guile, Past Guile, and Kid Guile (not related to the CC character Kid).


Inspired by Digimon Tamers and the plot device about an OC from real world getting into the game, I plan to make that it's the characters from Chrono Cross that appear in the real world. It is much like Digimon Tamers in the early chapters (yes, it even takes place at Shinjuku just like Digimon season 3, although it was once planned to be at Odaiba, the setting for Digimon season 1 and 2), but the major difference begins during chapter 4 (5 is more prominent). Chrono Cross is a popular game in Japan in 2020, and has many versions of the game: either the original game version in PS or the fan games in computer or a battle game that utilizes a plastic board called 'battle board', where a player can insert elements (in the form of colored chips and names) into the hollow parts of the board (element grid). The board has a slot that contains the character's data, and the element grid also depends on the character.

The story is divided into three arcs: Introduction, The Summons Saga, and Virus Saga. Each chapters consist around 3500-7500 words. The main themes of this story are: Friendship, Hard Work, Equivalent Exchange, Human Errors, Real Life Issues (school, family, business, etc), and Evolution (not only changes in appearance, but also personality into a better being). The mood is serious most of the time, although some chapters will be light-hearted (usually before tackling a darker subject).

Note that this story may also contain references to other series such as Fullmetal Alchemist, Chrono Trigger, Radical Dreamers, Yu-Gi-Oh (mainly season 0), Dragon Ball (including Z and GT, and the movies/specials such as 'History of Trunks'), One Piece, Digimon (season 1, 2, and 4, 3 has been the main inspiration for this story), Rurouni Kenshin, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and Crush Gear Turbo. It may also contain references to something else, depending on the co-authors' knowledge of other fandoms. So far, there may be references to Berserk, Warhammer 40k, Trigun, and Fist of the North Star (Hokuto no Ken).

The Arcs:

Introduction Arc: Chapter 1 - 11

The Summons Saga: Chapter 12 - ?

Virus Saga

Overcoming a Sad Tale (One-Shot, Completed)

Fandom: Chrono Cross

Characters: Guile, Steena

This one-shot is inspired by the song Owaranai Monogatari (Juri Katou's and Leomon's duet song) of Digimon Tamers. The song is about 'moving past grief', and I use it as one of the themes of this story. Another theme is 'flower', which symbolizes impermanence. Flower is fresh and fragrant, but those qualities only last for a few hours. In this story, those themes are represented in the relationship between Guile and Steena. This story contains references to Digimon Tamers and the 'Guile is Magus' speculation. It also contains character death.

A Good Friend (One-Shot, Poem, Completed)

Fandom: Chrono Cross

Characters: Guile, Kid

This poem is inspired by the song Kimi ga Yume Mita Mirai, Boku ga Yume Mita Mirai (Wormmon's theme song) of Digimon Adventure 02. The song emphasizes on fortitude and loyalty, and I use it as the main theme of this poem to represent the relationship between Guile and Kid. Disregard the 'Guile is Magus' speculation.

Life (One-Shot, Completed)

Fandom: Chrono Cross

Characters: Guile

Written for GeorgyannWayson's Minor Characters challenge. Features Guile longing for his past life with 'Guile is Alfador' speculation.

Life (One-Shot, Completed)

Fandom: Chrono Cross

Characters: Guile

Written for The Review Lounge, Too 2014 Halloween Collaboration. Can be found here.
