->''Magic should exist to protect mankind, not to destroy it.''
-->-- '''Lelouch Lamperouge'''

[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9269880/1/Fairy-Without-Wings Fairy Without Wings]] is the story about Kallen Kozuki, a 17 year old mage who has been kicked out of two guilds, and witnessed the fall of a third. She's come to Fiore's town of Loreon to meet a mage consultant that might help her with her inability to control her power, which leads her to have the opportunity to join the mage guild known as Knightmare Frame.\\
\\
Huh. [[Manga/FairyTail Sounds familiar]].\\
\\
Created by draconichero21, ''Fairy Without Wings'' is a crossover between ''Anime/CodeGeass'' and ''Manga/FairyTail''. It takes the established characters from the ''Anime/CodeGeass'' canon and translates them into the ''Manga/FairyTail'' universe with their personalities mostly intact. Lelouch is still a MagnificentBastard. Suzaku is still LawfulGood [[LawfulStupid to a fault at times]], and Cornelia will still [[KnightTemplarBigBrother tear off the head]] of anyone who dares harm her sister [[MoralityPet Euphemia]]. However, [[RecycledInSpace now they are all mages]]. In a guild known as Knightmare Frame, they are an ally guild to the famous - maybe even ''in''famous - guild Fairy Tail, but their journey is not one of rainbows, sunshine and butterflies.
WordOfGod is that ''Fairy Without Wings'' was created to show points in the mage world of Earthland that ''should'' come with the territory of such a world, [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism but that Mashima flat out ignores or only barely hints at existing]]. These are things that [[PayEvilUntoEvil Lelouch]] would normally be seen doing on a regular basis.

The [[FanFic/TalesOfBleachUnrealSociety third]] [[Fanfic/SoulChess fanfic]] created by draconichero to get its own tropes page and probably the best written out of the three. While ''Fanfic/SoulChess'' has recently received some CreatorBacklash, while still being all in all being considered a good read by most, [[WordOfGod draconichero is more satisfied with this fic thus far than the majority of]] ''Fanfic/SoulChess''.\\
\\
Now has a [[Characters/FairyWithoutWings character page]] that NeedsWikiMagicLove.

----

!! This Fanfiction contains examples of:

-----

* AllThereInTheManual: You can find some brainstorm details about the fic [[http://draconichero18.deviantart.com/journal/Fanfic-Brainstorm-Fairy-Without-Wings-368727460 here]]. The author had a second brainstorm page, but recently took it down because it was considerably spoiler heavy for things to come.
* AnAesop: Many a [[FramingDevice quote]] are like this.
* AndThisIsFor: Natsu does this to a member of Omega Sphere for attacking Alzack and Bisca in chapter 7.
* AnyoneCanDie: See BlackDudeDiesFirst below.
* BadassArmy: The Black Knights, Lelouch’s guild subset and Team Lancelot, which is Suzaku’s.
* BeachEpisode: Part of chapters 8 and 9, but it isn’t what you’d expect.
* BigDamnHeroes: Happens to [[spoiler:Guinevere]] in chapter 38. First by [[spoiler:Cornelia]] and then by [[spoiler:Schneizel, Rena, Asura, AND Erza]].
** Happens during the fight against Zero, the leader of Oracion Seis, as [[spoiler:Makarov and Marianne]] show up to bail out our heroes.
** Gino becomes this in the Edolas arc to Wendy, Lelouch and Kallen
* BigDamnKiss: In chapter 76, [[spoiler:Schneizel]] presents one to [[spoiler:Guinevere]].
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler:Rushio Seam]].
* BlackComedy: This exchange between Lelouch and Schneizel
--> '''Lelouch:''' [[MurderIsTheBestSolution It would’ve been faster to just kill them]].
--> '''Schneizel:''' And what pray tell would you have liked me to have done with the bodies?
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: The first non-OC fatality in the whole series is [[spoiler:Ren Akatsuki]].
* BrickJoke: In chapter 36, Cornelia tries to cure Gray of his stripping habit. [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption This goes about as well as one would expect]]. This trope comes into play when her first attempt to cure Gray involves [[ItMakesSenseInContext showing him a picture of]] [[{{Squick}} Natsu in a Speedo]]. When Gray later strips down after she tries duct tapping his clothes to his body, Gray is wearing a speedo instead of boxer shorts. And ''[[ChekhovsBoomerang then]]'' during a debate later in the chapter over posters for the upcoming play, Tohdoh's idea is [[ItMakesSenseInContext Jeremiah wearing a speedo]].
** The author [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the use of this trope in chapter 48 by tossing a brick into orbit saying that that will make sense in about a hundred chapters.
** Lucy being [[MissedTheCall absent]] from the Edolas arc.
* BringMyRedJacket: Subverted. Lelouch hates to get his red jacket mangled, damaged or torn since it was a gift given to him by Erza Scarlet so while he takes it everywhere, he always takes it off before things get rough. [[UnstoppableRage God help you]] [[BerserkButton if you do somehow damage it]].
* BullyingADragon: Iron Star was pretty much asking for the gruesome BEATDOWN that ensued when they pissed Kallen off and subsequently got [[CurbStompBattle curbstomped]] by Marianne. At ''what point'' did antagonizing ''Kallen'' seem like a good idea?
* CallBack: In chapter 76, Erza repeats the exact same lines to Lelouch that he told her eight years ago to cheer her up [[spoiler:in order to help Lelouch get over his mother's death]].
* CallForward: During the flashback of Cornelia’s history, Nonette talks about potentially becoming a Wizard Saint.
* ChekhovsGun: Though in this case it might as well be more Chekhov's location given all the buildup in the Unistrad arc regarding Krune Pass. According to WordOfGod the entire Unistrad arc is chock full of [[ChekhovsGun this trope]] and highly subtle {{Foreshadowing}}.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: The asterisk system much in the same fashion as where [[VideoGame/BravelyDefault it's inspired from]].
* CreatorInJoke: The Drunken Spartan in chapter 1. On Website/DeviantArt the author belongs to a group called the Drunken Spartans.
* ColonyDrop: In a flashback regarding how [[ForegoneConclusion Angel’s Feather became Fighting Spirit]] the dark guild Demon’s Horn drops ‘’the moon’’ onto Earth Land. [[spoiler:[[Awesome/FairyWithoutWings Rakkan throws it back into orbit]]]].
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Lelouch’s Spinal Tap ability desegments the cartilage from your spinal column and leaves you in pieces. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Overkill]] much?
* CurbstompBattle: CC, Ratatosk and Loke do this to a trio of demons in the Journey to Hell arc. CC even does it twice.
** Ratatosk Vs Ein [[spoiler:Ein never stood a chance]].
** Kyouka Vs The Black Knights [[spoiler:Our heroes never stood a freaking ''chance'']].
*** In the previous chapter [[spoiler:members of Fairy Tail get utterly wasted by the Black Knights]].
* DarkerAndEdgier: The series is a downplayed version of this for Fairy Tail. On the one hand, the author definitely does his best to bring up more adult subjects, but will still do things that are, as he puts it, true to Fairy Tail form. As for Code Geass, it's definitely LighterAndSofter.
* DarkestHour: Chapter 42. We have a lycan [[spoiler:Kallen]], an [[BrainwashedAndCrazy evil]] [[spoiler:Mirajane]], [[ObviouslyEvil suspicious vampires]], eternal night, [[ArtifactOfDoom cursed artifacts]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking worst of all]]...a [[LittleBitBeastly hairy]] [[spoiler: [[LittleBitBeastly Lucy]].]]
** [[FramingDevice The quote]] at the end of that chapter said it all
--> ''The dreams are gone. Midnight has come. Darkness is our new kingdom.''
* DeadPersonConversation: [[spoiler:Sachi appears before Kallen after Kallen wakes up in her flashback, but she’s using Soul Projection in order to talk to Kallen one last time]].
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In chapter 48, Lelouch gives Erza a strawberry cheesecake that he made himself. Erza's thoughts on the taste? [[DoubleEntendre The cheese is thick and creamy and she wants to savor the taste]]. [[SarcasmMode draconic hero is the master of subtlety as always]].
* DownerEnding: The Black Knights arc. [[spoiler:Marianne dies. Suzaku gets to go to the council and becomes a KarmaHoudini for betraying Knightmare Frame. Several members of Knightmare Frame leave the guild and [[PutOnABus Lelouch leaves to go on a journey that will take him three to five years]]]].
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Kalina, Lucy, Mirajane and even possibly Jellal are already jumping on board with noticing that Lelouch and Erza might think of each other as more than [[BlatantLies Just]] [[JustFriends Friends]].
* {{Expy}}: Way too many to list, but they are in abundance here. The most notable one is the Black Cats of Midnight to the point where even their interaction with Kallen bears a striking resemblance to [[Anime/SwordArtOnline the Black Cats of the Full Moon]].
** The only way the character [[HotBlooded Orochi]] [[LargeHam Bahn]] is based off of could be more obvious is if had a flashing neon sign dangling over his head that said {{Expy}} of [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]].
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Regarding [[spoiler:stopping Marianne's execution]].
* FemmeFatale: Selina Victoria from the dark guild Demon's Horn. The narration even describes her as one.
* ForegoneConclusion: Two so far:
** Suzaku's arc provides a flashback where we know the ending of the story will end with [[spoiler:Juren Rakkan giving up his Wizard Saint status and Angel's Feather becoming Fighting Spirit due to the guild disbanding]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** Milly’s own family issues foreshadow similar issues in Cornelia’s own arc.
** Kallen also mentioned when she once used Breaker X in one of the earlier chapters. In chapter 9 we learn why she was scared of the technique previously.
** We know that Kallen’s third guild died because she lost control of her powers. We get to see how in chapter 9.
** During Cornelia’s flashback it’s already been established that her darling older sister, Estellise, is going to die at some point. We’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop as it were. [[TearJerker/FairyWithoutWings Oh god does it not make things any less heartwrenching when said shoe drops though]].
** If you’re paying attention you should be able to see the twist that [[spoiler:Selina is Suzaku’s MissingMom]] coming.
** WordOfGod is that the ending quote of chapter 44 is Foreshadowing of a later arc and it should be pretty obvious at this point that Mary Markov is [[spoiler: Edolas Marianne]].
*** And now we know why [[spoiler:Suzaku betrayed Knightmare Frame]].
* FramingDevice: At the beginning and end of each chapter the author provides a quote that falls in line with the context of the chapter. The quote can either be said by a character from the story from [[Anime/CodeGeass either]] [[Manga/FairyTail fandom]], an original character, and even some already existing ones.
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]]: Sachi
* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler:Gemini when Suzaku defeats it while under the contract of Angel]].
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler:Tiberius]].
* HopeSpot: Oh so you think that just because Lucy [[spoiler:stopped Withengar's curse]] before [[spoiler:the blood of 100 werewolves and 1 demon got onto Withengar's dagger]] things are fine? '''WRONG!'''
** Chapter 75. Surely draconichero wouldn't ''really'' kill off Marianne right? [[spoiler:See previous answer]].
* ItWasHisSled: If you are at all familiar with the Anime/CodeGeass mythos then [[spoiler:Zero and Lelouch turning out to be the same person]] shouldn’t be much of a spoiler.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: The members of Knightmare Frame will do this to yield results if they think it will help.
** Lelouch is shown doing this to the guildmaster of Hedgehog Claw.
* JumpScare: Poor Lucy gets one of these in chapter 41.
* JustEatHim: How [[spoiler:Ratatosk]] disposes of [[spoiler:Ein]].
* KarmaHoudini: Averted in so far. Knightmare Frame makes ''damn'' sure all their enemies get the beating you want them to...unless you’re name is [[LawfulGood Suzaku]].
** However, Knightmare Frame themselves sort of get away with manslaughter when it comes to Kallen's berserk rampage early on in the series.
* KillerRabbit: Ratatosk. His etherious form is a squirrel.
* KnightOfCerebus: By [[WordOfGod draconichero's admission]] the Unistrad arc is the darkest he is willing to go ''without'' killing anyone. So apparently things can [[FromBadToWorse still get worse]]. This, of course, begs the question, [[ParanoiaFuel how dark is he willing to go when a body count is involved]]? And, [[AnyoneCanDie given]] [[Fanfic/TalesOfBleachUnrealSociety previous]] [[Fanfic/SoulChess works]] who will die?
* LadyKillerInLove: Rorix to Vanessa from Angel's Feather.
* LoveTriangle: Lelouch can’t seem to avoid being caught in one, can he? Both Kallen and Shirley have it out for him and he's implied to have an interest in Erza.
* MassOhCrap: Pretty much the reaction--reader included--when [[spoiler:Acnologia]] shows up in chapter 31.
* MirrorMatch: Suzaku when he faces off against Gemini who is currently his spitting image.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Chess has never sounded so interesting than when Lelouch and Lucy face off.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Often the topic of debate in this fic.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: According to Ratatosk, not ''all'' demons were created by Zeref, many were already around before Zeref ever came into existence and seek to coexist with humans. It shouldn't be too hard to understand [[AlwaysChaoticEvil why that's a problem]]. [[HalfHumanHybrid Kasumi's birth]] marked a step in the right direction and Ratatosk even pulled a [[Film/TheLionKing Rafiki]].
* MythologyGag:
** Chapter 1 would not be the first time we’ve seen Kallen in a playboy bunny suit.
** Chapter 1 is also almost a play by play of Natsu’s meeting with Lucy. We have a guildless mage, a dragonslayer who rescues her and a douchebag pretending to be said dragonslayer who then gets the tar beaten out of him.
** Some of the [[FramingDevice quotes]] are often used this way.
** In a flashback Jeremiah can be seen wearing an Orange jacket.
** Inoue herself is this to the Inoue in ''Fanfic/SoulChess''.
** [[Fanfic/SoulChess Kasumi]] can't seem to avoid being MadeASlave can she?
* NamesTheSame: Oracion Seis' leader and Lelouch's alter ego are both Zero.
* NoodleIncident: Something happened with Nonette and a steamroller that Lelouch referred to as a horror story.
** Also whatever happened on the X783 trip to Fighting Spirit.
** Also, apparently something happened with [[PersonOfMassDestruction Natsu]], golf and go-karts that he was worried the council found out about.
* NoSell: Mage Hunter Werewolves have anti-magic fur so they completely negate caster magic used on them. The same cannot be said for holder magic as Cornelia is all too quick to point out. However, [[spoiler:The werewolves just then NoSell the holder magic for reasons yet to be explained, but are terrifying enough as it is that they're no selling attacks from Erza Scarlet and Cornelia]].
** Characters will sometimes do this to their opponents in combat against certain magic attacks either by deflecting or shielding against them.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: If you are a member of the Black Knights, you believe in this.
* ParentalAbandonment: In Kallen's, Schniezel's and Guinevere's case and maybe a few others we don't know about too.
* PetTheDog: When Kinana comes staggering out of the forest with [[EyeScream her eye shot out]] from her fight with Cornelia and Natsu as Cubellios, she hoarsely says she's thirsty. Lahar is the one to give her some water even though he was bound to arrest her.
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: Lelouch to Milly whenever her VoluntaryShapeshifting leads to a WardrobeMalfunction.
* PostHumousCharacter: Estellise Heurassein.
* PromotedToParent: Naoto after the death of his and Kallen’s mother and their father abandoned them.
* OddFriendship: Knightmare Frame and Fairy Tail are, on some belief systems, as different as night and day, but the protective way they treat their nakama is why they are on such good terms.
* OfficialCouple: With the amount of ShipTease it's getting [[spoiler:Erza and Lelouch]] getting together seems pretty obvious.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: The entirety of the Unistrad arc.
* RatedMForManly: Pretty much any male member of Fighting Spirit is this.
* ReplacementGoldfish: A literal example in chapter 8. Lelouch goes out to buy his sister a new goldfish before she realizes her old one had gone and done the surface belly flop.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Tiberius’ reaction when he sees Kallen with Lelouch.
* SleepCute: Natsu, Lisanna, and Happy in chapter 65. Erza even notes that if she had a blanket she would've covered them with one.
* ShipTease: Oh plenty abound if you have ShippingGoggles on, though the author already has a pairing set in mind.
** Because Lucy gets enough of this trope with Natsu in canon, the author actually [[MissedTheCall wrote her out of the Edolas arc]] to give Lisanna a fair shake. Apparently he's fond of both ships and he's trying for a balance.
* TakeAThirdOption: When given the choice to ally vampires or werwolves in the Unistrad arc, Natsu tells the vampire prince that he and the others choose to remain human and will remain the enemies of both clans.
* TakeThat: Shirley’s backstory seems to be a pot shot at religion and/or the Catholic Church. [[WriterOnBoard Considering the writer is an atheist...]]
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler: Estellise does this for Cornelia with tragic results]].
* TeamMom: Marianne, guildmaster of Knightmare Frame and woe behold to anyone who [[TooDumbToLive makes the mistake]] of so much as [[MamaBear looking at her guild wrong]].
* TemptingFate: Done twice in chapter 41 regarding how much damage the werewolves of Unistrad can take without getting up again. And ''somehow'' they have the resilience to walk through ''FIRE!''
** Done to the point that ''even the author'' knew he was being a bit heavy handed in Cornelia saying she wanted to win against Oracion Seis with no casualties.
** Done to a [[NightmareFuel terrifying]] and [[TearJerker tragic]] degree in chapter 73. Bisca's remark that the job "cannot fail with Natsu leading the group" becomes this trope when [[spoiler:Their client is killed by Zero right in front of Natsu and there is nothing he can do about it]].
* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: Lelouch and Erza do a variant of this with a hammock, though initially the trope doesn't come into play because Erza chooses to keep an eye on Lelouch while he sleeps. Lelouch, being a gentleman, refuses to let Erza sleep on the ground. Solution? Erza throws Lelouch onto the hammock and cuddles up with him for the night.
* TitleDrop: Twice in chapter 75.
** UpToEleven in chapter 76 where the title of the chapter is "A Fairy Without Its Wings"
* TragicDream: Cornelia and Estellise's promise with each other.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: [[spoiler: Cornelia's sister Estellise]].
* {{Understatement}}: Kalina saying that "adults are complicated" just as a general statement. Probably an understatement of understatements.
* UnholyMatrimony: Kasumi's mother is a succubus while her father is the former guildmaster. Kalina’s father [[spoiler:is the king of all demons]].
* VigilanteMan: Zero
* WeDoTheImpossible: This is Fighting Spirit's ''way of life''.
* TheWorfEffect: At the end of chapter 46, [[spoiler:Wendy, Suzaku, Cornelia, Jeremiah, Gray and Juvia have all been defeated by Withengar off screen]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Oracion Seis compared to their canon counterparts. The author [[TvTropesWillRuinYourLife even uses the phrase]] StrongAsTheyNeedToBe to describe them.
* WhamEpisode: Given this is [[TrollingCreator draconichero]] we knew this had to happen eventually. Remember that trip Anya and Gino went on? Well it [[CallBack gets brought up again]] at the end of chapter 26 and guess what they found? [[spoiler:Wendy Marvell who will now be joining Knightmare Frame as opposed to Fairy Tail. Considering how major of a role she plays in canon this is kind of a big deal]].
** It happened again. Chapter 41 [[spoiler:Mirajane is brainwashed and crazy]].
** Everyone wondered what Edolas Lelouch was going to be like when he wasn't encountered at Edolas Knightmare Frame. No one suspected that he was [[spoiler:a WheelchairWoobie]].
** Chapter 66: Dark Blade turns out to be [[spoiler:[[SamusIsAGirl Edolas Nunnally]]]]
** Chapter 74: [[spoiler:Marianne gets arrested by taking the blame for Lelouch as Zero and it turns out that she's known that he's Zero the whole time. We also get our first introduction to Morrigan Ley Fair, Zeref's sister, albeit all we see are her OccultBlueEyes]].
* WhamLine: Us being told that Morrigan Ley Fair is [[spoiler:Zeref's sister]] is some pretty trippy stuff. Even in-universe the reveal is treated this way.
** In-universe, hearing Lelouch's name called rattled both Erza Knightwalker and Dark Blade.
* YouShallNotPass: Said word for word and played straight by Selina's minions Uma and Oushi[[spoiler:,while staring down resident [[TheDragon dragon]] to [[BiggerBad Hades]] [[GravityMaster Bluenote Stinger]] because of Selina's potential betrayal]].
** Attempted by Ash until Kallen [[spoiler:figures out that he's her long lost brother Naoto]].
