I christen this post with some homemade smut.
2,464 words. Cruhteo/Slaine, Slaine solo, toys. Corporate AU, abusive sugar daddies, cameos by girls. I know I said I was too lazy to write this myself, but you guys got me into the idea. Fuck you, /y/, I actually had stuff that I was supposed to do today.
This was amazing. Crouton trolling gave me a funny boner.
Unfortunately, for all the effort Slaine had put into avoiding Trillram's attention, it proved to be nothing but wasted energy as the older man turned around just as Slaine passed the threshold. Slaine warily wondered if Trillram had intentionally entered before him just to have this awkward confrontation, and in all honesty it wouldn't have surprised him if he had. Still, in an attempt to just get this meeting over and done with, Slaine stood straight and bowed his head to him in greeting.
"Good morning, Mr Trillram."
With any luck, perhaps Trillham might also share the sentiment that it was just a little too early to start his usual "gentle teasing" of Cruhteo's apprentice. After a moment or two of prolonged silence, Slaine heard a soft grunt of acknowledgement from where Trillram stood leaning against the granite countertop, sipping from his own cup. Slaine, relieved that he also seemed to be too tired to give him trouble, glanced up and gave Trillram a wry smile as he walked over to the coffee pot. The coffee was still hot, and by the looks of it, thankfully just enough for Slaine to fill Cruhteo's cup. Feeling unusually at ease with the other in the room, he tried making small talk as he stirred sugar into the aromatic brew. "I heard Mr Saazbaum's team recently found a hole in the UFE's main OS that they're planning to exploit in the next software update, do you think it's going to be enough to bring the system down this time? I thought that, maybe if they used it with new program Mr.Cruhteo's working on, it would cripple most of the UFE's future products for a while." Since Gilzeria had passed not too long after the building was completed, the Vers company had been under the defacto rule of Saazbaum due to the CEO's dwindling health.
It was only by his direction - and the ruthless nature of those in the most influential positions - that Vers had managed to stay consistently ahead of the competition, after all.
A condescending scoff from behind him caused Slaine to turn around as Trillram sneered and tossed his now empty cup into the sink.
"Don't just talk about things you don't understand, brat. Parroting the gossip you hear around the place isn't going to make you any less of the higher ups glorified lap warmer." Slaine froze, only breaking the silence with the ting of the teaspoon against the porcelain cup. He was already used to this kind of talk from all over the company; by now it shouldn't have fazed him but it still struck a cord deep within him. The worst part of it all was that he wasn't in a position to deny it either - not that they would have believed him either way. The blonde boy impulsively lowered his head again, to which Trillram only rolled his eyes. "Just stick to the only thing you're good for, runt. If we had to rely on the opinion of Cruhteo's dick sleeve to conduct our business, we would have gone under years ago." Slaine winced at the insult and not wanting to spend another second in Trillram's company, he turned to leave, clasping the coffee cup tightly in his hands as if to try and retain the heat.
Oh Jesus fuck, ERECTION not ELECTION. Fucking spellcheck. Here's some Slaine+Mazuurek meet cute by way of apology. No porn in it, but someone should write this prompt
Sure, I can pastebin it once I've finished the setting
I was personally going to write him in as a graduate student that was working in Saazbaum's floor on a graduate scheme and liaisoned between his and Cruhteo's floor. Slaine isn't actually sure if Harklight is aware of his 'actual' job and likes to think that he respects him as an equal because of the actual work he's capable of doing [spoiler]they're probably going to fuck though, it's an inevitable fate for Slaine[/spoiler]
In anticipation of the coming episode and Inaho being in way over his head, have some possible (?) Egg placement in VERSCorp universe….
“Oh, that’s right! Your interview at VERS is this evening, isn’t it? Perhaps you can take a ride with Slaine.” Asseylum’s eyes darted, birdlike and sparkling between the two boys as they walked along on either side of her. She turned to Inaho again, ”It might help you to be a little early!”
“That..” Inaho hesitated a bit but didn’t break his stride. “That.. might not be a good idea.”
Slaine stopped in his tracks altogether, “Your.. what?”
“Interview.” Inaho replied curtly, glancing back at the shocked teen. He stopped as well, Asseylum hovering between them. He caught a glimpse of something like distress flash across Slaine’s face before the other boy blinked it away and repeated himself, more emphatically.
“An interview, a formal meeting in which one or more persons question, consult, or evaluate another person.”
“But why at VERS!?”
“Inaho has been- oh my, what is the term-” Asseylum cut in, the excitement in her voice overflowing, “Headhunted? Isn’t that amazing, Slaine?”
“More like scouted, maybe. I’m just a student.” Inaho brushed a stray wisp of hair out of his left eye and carefully watched the other boy’s face as he explained further. “Someone there apparently read bits of my A.E. source code and took an interest. A prospective internship program, they said. It’s all experimental right now. Even more likely, it’ll be short lived, I’m not really looking forward to it, and my Sister already hates the idea on principle, but...”
“You can’t be serious.”
"I was a little irritated they managed to find me. I need to know how.”
Oh gawd, he needs to find out Slaine's secret.
(Writerfag's back, sorry for the delay had to deal with a shitty hangover)
This was just the start of yet another long work day - all Slaine had to do was make it to six o’clock and he’d be left to his own devices until he went home. The apprentice had barely made it out of the room when he felt something hook around his ankle and yank. Slaine hardly registered what was happening as he stumbled forward awkwardly and threw his right foot down firmly to keep himself upright. He heard a soft, disappointed 'tch' from behind him as a shaky exhale left Slaine's lips. He wasn’t able to revel in salvaging Cruhteo’s morning cup for long however, as the near boiling liquid spilled over his hands in spite of his precarious balancing act. Unable to help himself, he let out a sharp yelp and jerked his hands away from the offending cup, jumping back just in time to avoid the shrapnel of the shattered porcelain and the rest of the hot liquid. Clasping his scalded hand in the other firmly, Slaine could only grimace at the mess slowly spreading across the floor. He didn’t have time to deal with this right now – a quick glance at the clock on the wall already told him that if he didn’t leave now, he’d be even later to Cruhteo’s office but it’s not as if he’d be able to leave the mess here without being reprimanded for it later too.
Slaine chewed his lip nervously, momentarily forgetting the throbbing pain in his hand and that he wasn’t alone in the room. A rough shove to his shoulder followed by a loud cackle pulled Slaine out of his anxious worries about his next act as Trillram pushed him aside to walk through the doorway.
“Can’t even carry a damn cup, what’s the matter with you?” he chided, stepping over the shards and spreading liquid as though they weren’t even there. The apprentice couldn’t help but grit his teeth, suddenly gripping his hand tighter in a vain attempt to stop himself from lashing out at the obnoxious man.
“Cruhteo’s wasting his time with the likes of you. Just thinking about sharing an office with a self-entitled brat like you makes it hard to work, you know?” Slaine dug his nails into his skin hard enough to leave deep half circles in the reddening flesh, his shoulders practically shaking from trying to contain himself.
“Perhaps you should consider getting more training or taking on tasks you can handle if you have to resort to poor excuses like that for your low quality work, Trillram.”
The new voice threw Slaine off guard whilst Trillram only scowled at the owner.
“You’ve only been here for a few weeks, Harklight, you wouldn’t understand what I’m talking about.” He snapped, glowering up at the taller man. Slaine briefly wondered just when and where this new individual showed up, momentarily forgetting his pent up anger and the coffee still at their feet. Harklight nodded to him slightly in greeting before he returned his attention to the seething Trillram.
“Maybe, but I’m sure there’s work you could be now doing instead of harassing and tired apprentice in the break room.” He paused for a moment, looking over at Slaine again before settling on Trillram once more. Trillram looked just about ready to start up another confrontation with his fists curled into tight balls but Harklight only stood still, clearly not noticing or just outright ignoring him, as he slowly slipped his hand into his pocket to reach for his own phone.
“I’m sure both Cruhteo and Saazbaum would agree with me, if I were to ask them.” At that Trillram went still before relaxing his fists, grunting as he turned away from them both to leave.
“Bah, whatever. I have better things I need to be doing anyway.” Slaine was fairly certain he heard a faint “Kissass” from him as he skulked away, but he didn’t linger over it in favour of staring at his new companion curiously instead. The blonde boy was genuinely taken aback when he was greeted with a small smile from – what did Trillram say his name was again? Harklight? and suddenly felt flustered by the whole situation and the fact that he had been caught staring. It wasn’t his fault; Slaine wasn’t used to any smiles in this place that weren’t full of contempt or an overwhelming amount of arrogance. In the back of his mind, a small voice chided that perhaps this too – the very idea of someone in this place who didn’t know about him or didn’t want to chastise him for the hell of it – was nothing more than another set up to an elaborate prank.
Hype. Hype! I love this Harklight. Anon, you're wonderful.
Pixiv needs more r18 stuff with this him, though.
Mary's germophobia needs to be integrated somehow. ("It's worth paying more to make sure a dog doesn't have fleas," Marylcian drawls, flicking an imaginary speck of dust off his immaculate suit.)
... so in my head that was being used in the not-quite-literal sense of "It's worth paying more for a prostitute that won't give you the clap" because Cruhteo and Barry have both called Slaine a dog, but that works, too.
I know, but it's so much funnier if he had a little pomeranian or a maltese too. Poor Slaine doesn't get any slack at all in this company, why do you even stay for this shit, Slaine
Aside from corporate takeovers and boning barely-legal male prostitutes, his passion is breeding attack pomeranians. He refers to them all interchangeably as Herschel, ala the Ice King and Gunter. At some point in the second season, Slaine has to fight the entire pack.
Meaning that after he's defeated/fired Slaine basically steals his dogs and hands them to Harklight? I am now imagining Count Troyard seriously handing Harlight punch of squeeking pomeranians while Harlight profusely thanks him
If this is still the computer company Verscorp, he probably just named them after his super special computer that all the higher ups have. Really having a hard time wrapping my head around what the kataphrakt equivalent would be in this, though, I think advanced computers/laptops would be the closest equivalent. Tharsis, Herschel, Deucalion and Sleipnir are all models of computer that run on a different OS or smth? Sleipnir is an outdated computer model running on the equivalent of like, idk, windows 95? Any other suggestions?
Huh, didn't even know Japan had a word for those kind of companies, you learn something new everyday. But yeah, sure, I think I'm almost done doing the setting up anyway, although that depends entirely on if you guys wants porn from me or not (hint: I have never written porn before, I'm not sure if it'll be any good if I were to blindly foray into it. ...Having said that, I do have some ideas, but eh)
>waiting for the conflict between Inaho's conscience and his dick
I'm still salty that he gave the pendant back in the show.. But.. Can we please have Inaho stumble across some hardcore xxx of Slaine on VERSCorp servers and fap furiously to it one he recognizes who it is?
I have an AO3 account, but I mostly just use it to archive requests I filled for /a/ or /y/, so there's only two short A/Z pieces on it that haven't already been posted here. Sorry to disappoint!
It truely is. I hope second cour brings us more
is that your original content, anon??
Warms the heart to see even as a count he pleases the mobs.
I see artists on twitter already talking about doing doujins
Oh I think majority of opening lines is Inaho saying that his Dream Slaine isn't right-- "well, probably not" and then the time ran out before Inaho could cum so Slaine's like "you're dreaming, do it yourself" which was funny to me.
Son of a bitch, this one looks adorable. http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=49195105
Oh? You didn’t want to see me? You’re the one having this dream
The dream you is different from the real you
Is that so?
They do say that a dream is best if it stays a dream
Hey, if you’re going to suck it then turn your ass this way
You really like it here
How did you want me to do it again?
By rubbing it hard against my prostate! I love that
We’re not going to finish it today either…?
What are you going to do about this?
It’s a dream
Be my guest to do it yourself
Come and see me already
Dreams are coming to me
Unfamiliar, your skin melts me
One by one, your fingers are killing me
If we meet again, when that time comes
Add :orig to the address and you'll get the full size image.
Is that a monster cock?
A easygoing young man being used by faceless old men? An easygoing young man being topped by a haughty, self-important, too-serious, prideful kid who tries to hide his own inexperience?
I have this.
Should I dump it or has it been posted already?
Is translator anon still doing the demon Inaho/priest Slaine translation from last thread?
Translator anon here, sorry about that, just studying for my exams atm so putting translations and writing on the back burner for now. If anyone else wants to pick it up, feel free to do so, but in the mean time I'll see what I can do
LAST NIGHT BEFORE THE FINAL EPISODE, /y/. Let's celebrate by all posting a favorite image.
It's been fun writefagging for you.
I feel you. There's no way that it will wrap up satisfyingly in one episode, but no way that I have the energy to wait for S3/a movie/an OVA.
In all honesty, I had enough of this. I don't care how it ends, I just want it to end already. It will always be underwhelming and disappointing either way. It's obvious they can't redeem themselves and don't plan to, they had 23 episodes to do that. I feel baited and I bet the talented artists that worked on this feel that way as well. Aoki might be a funny, friendly guy but he's a terrible director.
The sad part is that it isn't even a trainwreck, it's boring and plays it safe all of the time. Underwhelming would be the word.
Au contraire this ending was wonderful for one reason.
The music was great, imo. Nao basically became really OP with his roboeye and rekts everyone. Roboeye ends up eating his brain so he takes it out and returns to life as a 'normal' soldier in the end. Doesn't get the girl, but gets Slaine for his efforts at least.
>bored and scrolling through the board names on the front page
>wonder if there's any A/Z stuff, only been here once or twice several years back
>A/Z thread is first in the catalog
What a blessing.
>buretaro hasn't drawn prison rape yet
Maybe it's too expected
>holding each other's chess pieces
How lewd. Too bad there's no chess porn yet.
At this point I'm inclined to view A/Z as a black comedy about the myriad ways that Slaine's life can go wrong. It's probably a lot less dull that way.
Is Inaho attempting to give him some of his "water" too?
Wait Pixiv does this shit too? Hoo boy, I thought it was mostly exclusive to Western fandom or at least Western properties.
Mpreg isn't involved is it.
Ugh, mpreg is like one of the fetishes I will forever find a huge bonerkill unless medical scifi or actual trans men are involved. But that's just my personal opinion.
Wow, I actually had no idea this was a thing? I guess I've just been in the other fandoms all these years, literally didn't ever see these terms until some japanese fanworks. Read up on it, I'm somewhat interested but at least grateful it's an entire biology shift with rules, and not just "oh btw male chara can get pregnant"
I saw this anthology around and it looked interesting, Before now I thought "omegaverse" was another name for "AU" in that it was all encompassing or something. Glad that I learned the difference.
>to be gaining some popularity in japan https://twitter.com/OMEGAVERSE_P no idea how or why.
Supernatural has a decent fandom in Japan. It's one of the biggest for western-origin media after Harry Potter died down (Just from what I've seen in stores)
It's been pretty big there for awhile I think. There's even an AZ doujin set in it.
>it's an entire biology shift with rules, and not just "oh btw male chara can get pregnant"
True, but personally I find that stuff pretty offputting even when authors manage to avoid the whole mpreg elephant in the room. All this talk about rutting, pheromones, heats, and other clinical stuff, plus that it literally forces characters to act like stereotypical super-ukes is 2creepy4me. But hey, to each their own.
Oh, now the drugs in this book make a lot more sense.
Or I should have just read the actual text instead of just picture read like usual, now that I know it's Omegaverse, the word pops out like 9000 times oops.
I'm a different anon, two of us have this book. If /a/ anon doesnt scan, i'll probably do so. I colleced Sinba's books from SnK fandom and picked this one up just on a whim when I saw it, didn't know it was omegaverse. Good stuff though, but like other anon said, the extreme stereotypical alpha/omega stuff can be a bit off putting. To me it's just same'ol BL tropes from the 80s and shit
There's no way it's dying soon, there's still fandom events into late summer. And I'm sure cour2 anthologies will be coming out soon. Even for the dojins it's been mostly cour1 and AU so far
So I take it from your reactions that the show's not really worth watching then? I watched the first three or so episodes and liked it well enough then dropped it and was hoping to marathon it after it finished. Caught bits and pieces from the threads so I know about the Season 1 finale and Slaine's suffering.
But I'm guessing they never went into interesting things like deconstructing Inaho's autism, Dr. Troyard and Vers empire history, Slaine's lack of pupils, or any of that stuff. Shame, that would've truly been interesting.
Well, while we're on the subject of mating and rutting and all that, have the one book that got me carded in person. Basicallt Marito getting bullied into fucking Inaho out of his sexual brat phase.
I was always holding hope that another episode might top ep3 of season 1, and while some moments did, entire episodes.. felt like wastes on the whole.
>deconstructing Inaho's autism,
I can't tell anymore if people actually think this is a thing, or they just like to perpetuate the meme. but short answer, no, and when he did go cyborg, it was too short lived and goddamn am I bitter he didn't end up fully robotic.
>Dr. Troyard and Vers empire history, Slaine's lack of pupils, or any of that stuff.
None of it. ever. Rest in peace, guess I'll go back to Gundam.
because eroInaho is a beautiful thing, ooc or not.
one more tonight, one of Aqua's books because like I said, ero Inaho is a thing of beauty.
In the end everything brought up in the show is pointless, really it's a huge waste of time to even watch since nothing is really accomplished in the end and the only character with any development was Slaine. Even then his development was pointless since he has to start all over again at the end.
Some of the robot fights got me hard but as far as robo porn goes, only the BD covers have that quality of art. in-scene animation is just as you saw in first episodes, then it goes full out gundam with the upgrades. but CG. The entire franchise, from all angles, is basically a nasty dirty tease.
It's ultra-disappointing because it's just competent enough to not have the entertainment value that truly shitty shows like Mahouka and VVV had. There was so much potential with the world-building and scifi aspects that if they had a moderately competent writer who followed up on any of it, even a little, it might've been a lot better.
In that comic, Inaho's happy that Slaine finally called out his name.
(Also I guess he hasn't gone up in rank, still Ensign? I was under the impression he was promoted but we may never officially know)
I'm confused. I thought Omegaverse was more of a Teen Wolf thing?
And yeah seconding on not being a fan of it. Like, at all. It's as arousing to me as watching two literal dogs mate.
Aldnoah.Zero Anthology vol.2 - Hi Resolution
Aldnoah.Zero Anthology vol.2 - Hi Resolution
Not strictly /y/, sorry, but I figured it would be of interest. Sorry it took so long to get together, hopefully I will have vol. 3 scanned by the end of April.
I only ever watched this fucking show because of all the Slaine porn I had seen ahaha.
I'm not even going to pretend Slaine is a saint who did nothing wrong, but that only adds to his relative humanity. He's definitely the most three-dimension and compelling character out of the lot. There are worse reasons to watch the show IMO.
In the end the porn was the best thing about the show for me.
me too, picked it up of because slaine is delicious and stayed because slaine is delicious. no other reasons, i don't even like mecha. too bad the anime was such a huge dissapointment.
I'll probably never understand why the amputation fetish is so big in Japan.
More so than the West at least. I've found it in just about every single fujo fandom I've come across on Pixiv, so I guess there's a universal audience for it there the way Western fandoms have inflation fetishes or whathaveyou.
Apparently from I'm understanding from Twitter is that the Newtype spread is of Inaho and Slaine playing chess while having a tea party? There's white roses in the background.
>– after a rampage that no one else can keep up with, the isolated Slaine and Inaho fall to Earth, where the two, now ostracised by the world, live quietly in a corner of Earth. We had that kind of idea for the ending. The two of them falling to Earth like a shooting star gives an impression of being reborn.

Sounds like a fanwank version of Char's Counterattack
Just curious, but this show wouldn't happen to have lewd full-on gifs would it? Though the gunjob one is pretty good as far as canon events go.
muh heart dick
>White roses are traditionally associated with marriages and new beginnings, but their quiet beauty has also made them a gesture of remembrance. When the occasion calls for reverence, whether stately or somber, a bouquet of white rose is a perfect way to say, “I’m thinking of you.”
From weibo summary of newtype info, I think http://weibo.com/p/1001603829723066181686
Put it here in case a translator anon can't see the posts
It would be too bleak given how different the characters were gonna be(slaine being power corrupted and inaho being obsessed with princess). They would depressed and broken. Kinda like EoE, there is HOPE in the future but the ending would be melancholy I expect.
While in the normal ending they want Inaho to save Slaine as Inaho didn't go off the deep end and the smile and birds are supposed to represent hope for a new/happier beginning
I would still have liked to see Inaho get isolated from his friends and family and have to start a new home with Slaine. Not just for homo purposes, but at a gut level it's unfair that Slaine is the only one who's suffering. (The eye doesn't count, Inaho clearly doesn't give a shit.) It would have been better if they both wound up as loners because of Asseylum and then she dumped them for an old man. There could still be hope, but it would just be more satisfying if they were both crawling out of isolation and unhappiness together instead of Inaho having his crew and his military rank and Slaine rotting in a mental asylum.
I guess we could always imagine Inaho becoming obsessed with Slaine and losing everything if he were to break him out. This is Inaho though, he wouldn't even have to break him out, all he'd have to do is walk him out the front door without issues. It's ridiculous how he can do whatever he wants.
it's from one of the previous threads which are obviously gone by now. i'm a faggot who renames every saved pic, so unfortunately i can't help you. never searched for the sauce myself.
Finally someone realized those chess pieces are lewd.
Is someone going to archive the Verscorp stuff? Please I don't want to lose all the chatter and drafts..
The trio is still delicious.
Btw cute Bary/Book comic on pixiv http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=49589335
From that comment about the shooting stars symbolizing rebirth, I get the feeling that while it's not the optimal outcome for the two of them, it sounds like it's implying they would eventually come to be peacefully content with each other's company.
>While in the normal ending they want Inaho to save Slaine as Inaho didn't go off the deep end and the smile and birds are supposed to represent hope for a new/happier beginning
They sure failed to portray that. It feels more he's about to hang himself in his cell.
Yeah, I fail to see how the ending as it stands is less depressing than the original. Yeah, it's got twice as many people in a rough spot, but the implications that they'd eventually graduate to a state of contentment as mentioned in >>2166773 is way more apparent.
Aoki either has some truly fucked up priorities or is basing it on the arithmetic mean of their happinesses, in which case it's still worse because you're combining average-happy Inaho with Slaine who literally comes off as still suicidal not hopeful. That's going to push it into the negative hundreds. For the original ending to be worse the show would cut off on a scene with both of them bashing their heads on rocks.
I didn't get that impression. Because he is still such a himefag hearing she wanted him to survive is gonna make him live. The pupils returning and smile as well. I see a lot of jp fanart of that nature as well.
Doesn't make it any less depressing in execution though. Aoki is the same guy who uses CPR for romantic scenes so I think he may be very inept at...everything.
>Because he is still such a himefag hearing she wanted him to survive is gonna make him live.
That doesn't make it "happy", it makes it as if he's forced to live because he'll make that cunt sad, even if he wishes to die.
Hence why I typed
>Doesn't make it any less depressing in execution
Because that is what it is. "Living for another person's sake" is a really common thing I've seen in some japanese series. I even see it used romantically. And they want him to pay for his sins too. Suicide end assisted or not would be depressing as well and maybe nips don't like it.
If a character does it for a "noble" cause it's often portrayed well, like saving people or a person, but if it's due to depression or something negative it's a traumatic event and portrayed/received badly from what I've personally seen. Like in a tragic backstory.
Dying with dignity, but Slaine's already lost his dignity at this point so him committing suicide would be seen as sad but pathetic. It's kind of like what Kirie Fujou did in Kara no Kyoukai 1.
