Week 6 Drabble Entry  
A drabble submission since it's about time I began writing for Code Geass.

Title: Echoes
Rating: G
Genre: Angst?
Characters/Pairings: Suzaku, Lelouch


Neither of them believes in the charade of ‘the Emperor and his knight’. It’s a mere convention – a means to an end, and when the doors to the throne room close behind them, the formalities cease. There was a time Suzaku would have treated Lelouch like glass, like the fragile prince he was, abandoned and discarded halfway across the world. But they’ve come a long way from childhood bullies, and any respect Suzaku had for his old friend died when Euphemia gasped her last breath.

They’re only echoes of their formal selves now, conceiving their plans in the dark of the Imperial bedchambers.

Wow. I've always been impressed with people who are capable of getting such a large point across in so little words. This was a pleasure to read; do you happen to have anymore drabbles/stories for the Code Geass fandom?

Aw, thanks ♥

Geass is actually a fandom I've always wanted to write for but found I couldn't (though I would like to change that). The only other thing I've ever really written for it was season 1 post-25, and I'm not sure you can even call it a drabble since it's so short, lol.

Before he raised his gun, Lelouch knew he couldn't shoot.

As his knees buckle and his eyes fall shut, he wonders why, after all that's happened, he still thought Suzaku would feel the same way.

It's the same for me, actually. I have a lot of ideas for Suzaku and Lelouch's childhood that I would really like to get down, but I just can't seem to do it. Perhaps it's because I'm so concerned about their characterization. Maybe I should start with drabbles too...

Also, I feel a little daunted with all the amazing authors in the fandom.

AND I LOVE THIS. Really, you're able to get their feelings across in just two sentences, and better yet, Lelouch's emotions in this are exactly how I imagine them to be. There's something between those boys in canon, I swear. ♥

I really need to find time and start sorting through old fanfiction posts, because I've barely touched that aspect of fandom. Note to self: write AND read more Geass XDXD

There's something between those boys in canon, I swear. ♥
Yes~ ♥
