Crono Returns- Chapter 8 is here!
« on: November 30, 2012, 11:11:21 pm »
Hello everyone, this is a fanfiction of Chrono Trigger that I've been working on for a while. You see, I've been playing Chrono Trigger since the day it came out, and it has always been my favorite game. When I heard that Chrono Cross, a sequel to my favorite game was coming, I got extremely excited.

I got it on day 1, and immediately I was... disappointed. The only returning character was (arguably) Magus (and Crono if you think Miguel is him, which I don't), and I didn't care for many of the new characters. Instead of 7 great characters with plenty of importance on the plot and development, we got... 50 characters, with maybe 3 or 4 of them getting any development or any plot revolving around them besides their introduction.

Plus, it blatantly (Not to mention pointlessly) killed off many of the characters I knew and loved, which is one of the main reasons I don't like to think of it as a true sequel and more like a spin-off/what-if scenario.

This fanfiction is the story I wanted from a CT sequel; since Square Enix won't do it themselves, I decided to write it myself.
I'm not just paying tribute to my favorite game; there are several homages to other things I love, the most obvious being Batman (Hell, the title and cover are inspired by Dark Knight Returns, which is my favorite Batman comic).
I also took a few liberties such as making Crono talk and giving Fritz a major role, so I hope that doesn't bother you.

Without further ado, I hope you enjoy, though I should probably warn you that it's rated M mainly for violence and language.

Good news and bad news:
The good news: I just finished chapter 8.
Bad news: I can't seem to find the flash drive I keep all my fanfictions on. I think I might've left it at a friend's house, so, well, let's just hope it'll be there, because I really don't feel like typing that chapter again...
