Weiss Rememberance

Previous Chapters: Prelude, Ch01

Author’s Notes:

School was boring so I had time to write the second chapter. I’m still on DC block so you can expect more this coming week. Warnings: Once again, nothing is thought out, nothing is corrected. This is pure crack with a lot of soap opera elements. Enjoy.

Chapter Two

“No, no, no! I won’t go back to Hydale! I WON’T!” Rianne cried banging on the table.

“Be reasonable, Rianne! I understand why you’re so opposed but it is just a three-day trip. He’ll be there and back again in no time.”

Rianne didn’t stop bawling. Her tears were selfish and irrational but it was nothing her manager, Evans, wasn’t used to. After a few months, Evans managed to get use to Rianne’s hysteric fits.

“I don’t want to go …”

Evans took the girl in his arms and patted her hand gently. “It’ll be alright. I’m here.”

Fatigued by her tears, Rianne tucked her face in Evans’ chest as he lulled her slowly to sleep.

Korin …


The two men that came to see Tori were Kira (the brunet) and Scythe (the blond). The both of them were part of the Association … not that Tori knew what the association was. But that didn’t matter since the two did say they’d help him.

Kira nor Scythe explained what they were going to do. But while he was there, Tori did some menial work in exchange for food and a room to sleep in.

It’s been three days since he arrived.

“Miu … sorry about the other day. I didn’t mean to well …”

The indifferent girl interrupted. “Stop. You apologize too much. It’s annoying.”

“Sorry.” Tori apologized again much to Miu’s despair.

“Damn Tori. Here I thought you were an asshole!” Xai explained without shame.

“W-why?” Tori asked, taken aback.

“You were a playboy once weren’t you? Rich, attractive and outgoing.”

Tori smiled weakly and stared at the ground. “T-that was well … a long time ago.”


The man turned to Miu. “Hm?”

“Deandra chose to die. Remember that.”

Tori shrugged and looked away.

Three days ago, when he arrived, after Kira and Scythe left him, Miu paid him a visit. She told him she wasn’t Deandra but she did share a link with her. Miu didn’t explain any further but Tori wasn’t sure he wanted to know anyway.

“Freeloader. Get up. We’re leaving.” Kira announced barging into the room.

Tori blinked. “W-wha-? Where to?”



Few days earlier … after the Concert

Mirielle explained to the boys the whole situation; that Alina found a girl in Azure lake who claims she knows Deandra and is looking for her mother and that Alina is heading for where they are right now.

“Doesn’t Lina have work?” Lauren asked, slightly concerned.

“She’s taking a paid vacation.”

“So what now?” James asked from his signature seat at his drums.

“We have to decided who’s keeping the kid, don’t we?” Lauren tried, turning to Mirielle.

The girl shook her head. “That’s already decided.”

“Who’s taking her?” James asked, curious.

“Korin of course.”

Korin’s eyebrow raised. “What?”

James’ and Lauren’s phones rang at the same time. The two excused themselves. Korin ignored them and fixed Mirielle with more than unkind glare.

“I didn’t agree to this.”

“You have no choice, Rinrin.” Mirielle teased. “Lauren’s and my apartement is too small. I don’t even NEED to explain why James can’t take the kid and Lina can’t keep her at the school either.”

Korin shrugged.

“Look, the change will do you good. Besides, your place is HUGE.”

“Fine. But this is only temporary.”

Mirielle smiled, feeling accomplished.

“BIG NEWS!” Both James and Lauren announced at once barging back into the room with panicked voices.

“Rianne is …”

“Tori is …”


Present time, Adalyth Airport

“Evans. I’m taking the day off. I want to take a walk around town.”

“Alone? Bu that’s-!”

“Shush. No one knows me here. I just want to be alone.”

Evans acquiesced, though worried, and let Rianne go (telling her to call whenever she was done).

Outside, Rianne breathed in the fresh air of Adalyth for the first time in more than a year.


The model turned around. Her eyes widened. Could it be-?



Few days ago, Southern Port

“What the hell is going on?!”

“We’re sending you to Adalyth. Our friend, James will be taking care of you there.” Scythe answered Tori as coldly and objectively as always.

“James?! James Carlson!?”

“Oh good. You know him. Now, stop resisting and get on the ship!”

“Damnit! I don’t want to!” Tori exclaimed, gripping the handbar as hard as he can resisting against Scythe’s pulls.

“Southern’s no place for a human!”

“W-what?! But you’re human!”

“Nope sorry. I’m a vampire.”

“Ueh?!” Tori screamed momentarily loosening his grip.

Seizing the opportunity, Scythe took Tori by the back of his shirt and dragged him into the ship despite his protests.

“I do hope you realize it soon!” Scythe screamed waving goodbye to Tori.

Realize what?!


Present time, Adalyth airport

“Lina? Is Korin a nice person?”

“Yes he is, dear. But he’s going through a lot right now so …”

“Anrin knows! Anrin has to make Korin all better!”

Alina smiled. “Yes, that’s right Anrin.”


End chapter notes:

Aww! Isn’t Anrin just the cutest? Maybe I should’ve made her 7 instead of 10. -laughs- BTW, notice her name?

Rianne + Korin = Anrin!

I was torn between Riko, Rina or Anko but in the end, Anrin was the best. And if you’re wondering, the ‘an’ is pronounced like ‘on’.

I also introduce another character in this chapter; Evans (named from the Butterfly Effect’s main chara), Rianne’s manager who obviously is crushing on mentally-unstable Rianne. Yes, Ria is mentally-unstable … to not say insane. Though, it seems she might still have feelings for Korin! I wonder what’ll happen when she sees how stoic Korin’s become tho’ … (I like the stoic Korin!)

As for how Mirielle decided to have Korin take care of Anrin: “Korin needs a therapist … but I can’t afford one! And it’s not he’ll pay for it so … I know! I’ll get the kid’s innocence to make Korin become a gentlemen again!”

Her thought pattern was basically that and she wasn’t wrong. A child naivety and directness can do wonders … you’ll see later on. But don’t think that the “perfect” Korin will ever come back. I really enjoy angsty-stoic Korin so I’m keeping this version of him for a while longer.

Expect everyone (or almost everyone at least) to be reunited next chapter.

Author’s Notes:
Written quickly without a second thought in about an hour. I DID say I was just writing this for the pure fun of it so don’t expect something consistent. In my previous post (poster two minutes before this one) I reviewed the BLCD “Tsuyogari” … Shinayakana Netsujo 3 and DEADLOCK coming soon!


 (click here for prelude)

Chapter One

He sat down and started playing. Barely a minute into song, people started gathering around him with interest. Every now and then giving him a few coins.

Across vast and endless plains
over mountains and deserted forests
under the moon, floating above the surface
in hot flames I burn, it aches, it hurts
the rain is falling, blinding my sight
still, I go on
Where are you?

The gathered crowd applauded. The poor man bowed and walked away. The villagers went back to work.He look down at his earnings. It was enough for a cheap room and dinner. He smiled wearily. It’s been a while since he’s played for people this generous.

After asking a random villager for directions to the nearest INN, he headed for the directed building to rent a room for the night.

It’s been two years. Too long and futile years. Deep down, he knew he wouldn’t find her. Oh, he knew. He knew it so well it hurt sometimes. Still, he wasn’t going to stop. He doesn’t know what he’s looking for, but he’ll keep searching till he does.

“Oh, sorry.” he apologizing when he absentmindedly bumped into a young girl.

“Ah, it’s oka-”



“Deandra!” Tori exclaims making the young girl turn around.

The man beside the young girl gave Tori a strange look before turning to his companion who Tori thought to be Deandra.

“D’you know him?”

The girl shook her head. “No.”

Tori walked drunkenly towards the girl. The depth of his hopelessness and fatigue (as well as his insanity) showing in his green lobes. Two years of aimless travel did not do him well. He couldn’t even hear that the girl denied being Deandra.

Tori put his hand on her shoulder and sunk in unconsciousness. “De … andra …”


“Is the new song done?” Mirielle asked leaning on the bar table.

“Yeah.” Korin answers waving the music sheets around.

“Good! There’s three hours before the concert. Let’s have enough practice done to perform it.”

James stopped his drumming exercices. “Eh?! In THREE hours?”

Mirielle smirked. “I don’t care how. Just get it done.”


“Thank you. Now, get on with it. Lauren fix the mic, Korin get your ass up and James stop sulking.”

The phone rang. James got up to get it but when stopped when Mirielle glared at him saying “Practice now. I’ll get the phone.”

Acknowledging defeat, he sat back at his drums. Lauren laughed at him and Korin started tuning his guitar.


“Ah, Mir? It’s me, Lina.”

“Oh hey! It’s been a while. What’s up?” Mirielle greeted happily at the sound of her best friend’s voice.

“Great. Well, actually not so much … There’s kind of a problem.”

The brunette, noticing Alina’s tone, put on a serious face and turned away from the boys. “Details, now.”


When the lunch bell rang, Alina left the classroom and headed for Azure Lake. On peaceful days like this, the teacher enjoyed watching lunch under a tree while watching the water’s surface.

Unlike Rianne or Tori, Alina didn’t have any problem with visiting Deandra’s death place. She remembered, the first they had all come here together after her friend’s death, Rianne had burst into tears and Tori made a huge mark on one of the trees that, to this day, still remains. Honestly, the two were acting like a pair of parents who lost their daughter. Except that Rianne and Tori didn’t have that kind of relationship.

“I wonder what those two are doing right now.”

Neither Alina, Mirielle, Lauren, James or even Korin has had any contact with the two runaways since their departure. It was difficult to swallow but, Tori and Rianne weren’t children. The two would come back to them one day, Alina was sure of that.

When she arrived at the lake, there was someone already there. A little girl.

Alina blinked. What was a little girl like her doing here?

“Hey you!”

The girl turned around. She looked no older than 10 years old. “Ueh?”

“What’s a little girl like you doing here?” Alina asked as kindly as she can.

The little girl flushed away. “I-I don’t know.”

“What’s your name?”

“I don’t know.”

“Where are you from?”

“I don’t know.”

The girl started crying, as if hit by unwanted reality. Alina panicked. “C-calm down! Shush there. There’s nothing wrong now. Stop crying, please?”

“Where’s Mama?”


“Deandra! Where’s Mama? Don’t leave me! Please don’t. I don’t want to be alone anymore!” The girl started bawling harder. Alina shushed her and calmed the child as much as she could. Before long, the girl fell asleep.

“… Deandra”

Perplexed, Alina carried the girl on her back and brought her to her room. After lying the girl on her bed, she dialed Mirielle’s number.


Mirielle didn’t tell the boys anything. If she did, they wouldn’t be able to concentrate on their concert. She was going to wait until it was over.

Give into temptation
the sweet taste of blood
Petals on the water surface
Blades of Queen
cut my skin …

my sweet, my sweet

The manager sighed. This was the first time she wanted the concert to end quickly. Usually, she would enjoy watching Lauren rocking up the stage and getting everyone fired up with his voice but this time … she was bothered. And when Mirielle is bothered, its no fun matter.

When can I stop running from the dark?
return to light
start breathing again
my heart is frozen cold
and only you can melt the ice
make roses red again
brush the petals against my skin

Wow. Korin’s lyrics get more depressing by song. I need to get him a therapist. Mirielle thought bitterly. Its been this way since Rianne left. It’s like Korin shut himself in and refused to let anyone in. If Tori were here, he might be able to cheer him up but he wasn’t.

You told me once I brought it upon myself
but at the time I had no choice
trapped myself in unwanted illusion
It was just too much to ask
the lie, the truth, which one?
I need a helping hand

Ever since Deandra’s death, everyone changed. Rianne, Tori and Korin in particular. Mirielle couldn’t blame them. They were the ones who knew Deandra best after all. Sometimes, when she thought about it, Mirielle felt utterly useless. Being unable to help your friend when they’re in need … it was very difficult to deal with.

the roses are red again
I feel the petals against my skin

Mirielle applauded at the sound of the end of the song and ran backstage. Time’s up.


When Tori woke up, he found himself in an unknown place. It was a harshly furnished room with thin blinds that didn’t help the sun from coming in. He looked left and right trying to remember what happened. When he couldn’t, he tried getting up but for some reason his head hurt.

“Oh! You’re awake~” A girl wearing an eye-patch exclaimed when she opened the door. “Kira! Scythe! He’s awake!”

Tori rubbed in aching forehead. “W-where am I?”

The girl smiled. “Tori, right?

“How did you know?”

“Tori Kastertone. 21. Human. Once a student at Royal Heart Academy but ran away at the end of your sophomore year to here, Southern. You’re a poor traveler looking for a certain person and are living off your guitar.” the girl said, ignoring Tori’s question.

“That’ enough Xai. We’ll take over for now.” said a pale blond man from the door.

Xai nodded and excused herself. The two men at the door approached Tori.

“Miu tells us you mistook her for another person and fainted.” said the taller brown-haired man.

“M-miu? O-oh, I see now.” Tori said, remembering the whole ordeal. “I apologize. I don’t know what got over me.”

“Deandra Lily Maren.”

Tori stiffened.

“That’s the name of the girl you are searching for, is it not?” the blond asked.


“I’m sorry. But Miu isn’t exactly who you’re looking for … besides, you know it already don’t you?” the blond continued.

“Yes, Deandra’s dead.”


When Alina put the phone down, she turned to the girl sleeping soundly on her bed.

“Deandra …” she whispered. “Mama …”

From the looks of it, Deandra and ‘Mama’ are two different people. But could it really-? Alina couldn’t stop the questions from pouring in.

What was going on?

End Chapter notes;
Survived? Congratz! Rianne didn’t appear in this chapter but she probably will in the next. I replaced Rianne’s time for a second Tori appearance ‘cuz I really want to introduce Kira and Scythe (the brown-haired and blond respectively) … I didn’t name them yet tho’

Miu, Xai, Kira, Scythe and the man that was with Miu are all characters from Dark Crimson.

For the next chapter, expect angst that isn’t really angst but is trying to be.

Weiss Remeberance
by; Deandra Lily

PRELUDE; written by the Author’s P.O.V

Though you don’t know it because I never ended up finishing RHH, Deandra does, in fact, die at the very end. Too bad you won’t have the time to cry over it because another ‘Deandra’ appears in Weiss. Hey, I’m not saying that its the real Deandra. For all you know, its a fucking fake!

Note: The world in which Weiss occurs is called “Resonance”. It is the world in which ALL my stories occur.

End of RHH

“I’m sorry, Rianne … Tori.”

Rianne couldn’t stop the tears from falling anymore.

“Why? Why didn’t you tell us earlier? Aren’t we your friends?”

Deandra laughed weakly, most of the bottom half of her body already ashes. “I didn’t realize it soon enough. Even if I did, it wouldn’t have changed anything.”

Rianne clenched her fists. “Idiot! You don’t know that! We could’ve helped …”

Deandra didn’t reply. She looked at her hand. “Funny. I’m burning and yet I don’t feel a thing.”

Rianne wanted to run to her. She wanted to her out of the flames but Tori grabbed her shoulder. The raven-haired turned to him with the fiercest glare she could muster but with her tears, it wasn’t convincing.

“Tori … go find a real girl to fall in love with.”

“I refused.”

Deandra smiled. “That could’ve been the last thing I’ve ever said.”

The other boy smiled back. “But it wasn’t.”

“Witty to the very end. Thanks.” She closed her eyes.

“WAIT! Deandra! Don’t go! PLEASE! I-” Rianne screamed fighting back Tori’s grasp.

“It was fun while it lasted … Me-”

The flames vanished. Rianne’s eyes widened and her tears stopped for a second. Tori looked away and clenched his fist ’til his nails dug into his skin.

Merry Christmas.

That was what the ending of RHH was supposed to be. It was during a Christmas Masquerade. A few days before, Deandra had agreed to be Tori’s dance partner. The hopeless twit was happy. Way happy. But he realized it was too unlike Deandra and when she didn’t arrive at the Masquerade on time, he Tori got worried and went to look for her. Along the way, he bumps into Rianne who has the same worries. The both of them find Deandra at Azure Lake. And thus the whole conversation above.

(note: RH occurs in everyone’s first year of high school. Meaning everyone (excluding Korin and Tori) are 15-16. Korin and Tori are both 17 … there are THREE years of RH)

Ever since, Tori’s been in a state of depression. Rianne starts blaming herself for a lot of things and is unable to fully recover either. Unlike Tori, Rianne rotated between happy and manic and depressive stages. She also developed a fear of fire.

Tori actually leaves the school at the end of their second year to look for Deandra and no one had the chance to stop him. Tori is basically the Takayuki of RH.

Rianne’s state becomes extremely unstable and she starts throwing fits more often. Hell, she even sent Korin to the hospital with a broken arm once. Soon the two start arguing a lot and before their third graduation the two break up.

Mirielle, Alina and the others, in the meanwhile, tried their best to patch things up but it was to no avail.

Rianne ends up running away to Nothern.

After graduation (2 years after Deandra’s death), Alina becomes a teacher at RH and Mirielle becomes Temperance’s (Korin-tachi’s band) un-official manager.

As I said in my previous post, Mirielle and Lauren and Alina and James are still dating.

Korin, after Rianne’s leave, goes from unconditionally kind to unreasonably cold. He becomes stoic, indifferent and distant to everyone and no one is ever sure what he’s thinking about anymore.

Lauren, the once extremely shy kid, becomes more outgoing and outspoken. Though he still has some self-confidence problems he is a much brighter person than before.

James is still a geek but he is less ‘geeky’ and ‘annoying’ than before. In his free time from the band, he runs a popular online-game called “resonance” (shameless plug and world name irony)

Mirielle is still … Mirielle. Happy, bubbly and perceptive.

Alina has relatively stayed the same. Albeit, she has started to see things in less objective way and has become more honest to her own emotions.

In a nutshell!

  • Alina is a teacher at Royal Heart and is still in contact with Mirielle and Temperance boys. She is still dating James.
  • Mirielle is Korin’s band’s un-official manager. She is still dating Lauren.
  • Temperance: Korin (guitar, back-up vocals, lyrics/music), Lauren (lead singer, lyrics/music), James (drums)
  • Korin became cold, stoic and distant. He is no longer dating Rianne.
  • Lauren became more outspoken.
  • James became … less annoying.
  • Rianne is Nothern working as a model. She is no longer dating Korin. She has not spoken to anyone from Royal Heart since she left.
  • Tori is Southern without a job looking for Deandra. He plays songs on his guitar for money. Yes, he sings and writes his own music.

Here’s a crappy paint-made geography of Resonance. I never said this (or maybe I did) but Resonance is (in my mind) a world hovering above ours. It extends from North America, Europe, Russia, China and Japan. Just so you know, this is also the world Dark Crimson occurs in. Both stories occur nearly at the same time.

When we see Tori in Chapter One he will be with DC’s main character Scythe and Kira asking them help. Yeah, I love shameless plugs.

All is said and done.

While waiting, enjoy this teaser of Chapter One


“Deandra!” Tori exclaims again making the young girl turn around.

The man beside the young girl gave Tori a strange look before turning to his companion who Tori thought to be Deandra.

“D’you know him?”

The girl shook her head. “No.”
