''Coccinea'' is a short crossover FanFic written by {{Tropers/MoonlightBomber}}. It crosses over the worlds of ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'' and ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''.

Due to certain events in "the traitor game" that happened in [[RecycledInSpace a space station]], Kit Taylor's and Kyouko Sakura's fortunes have intertwined. Due to similar characteristics (their transformed forms are both [[LawOfChromaticSuperiority colored red]]) and circumstances ([[GoodParents their fathers were their]] [[DeceasedParentsAreTheBest reasons why they fight]]), they knew each other quickly and fell in love. Soon, they became a BattleCouple.

Until the curtains of truth were unfurled, and Kyouko was revealed to be a Traitor, much to Kit's dismay. And she [[FaceHeelTurn betrays him.]] Eventually, both were killed off. Or so it seems...

Before their relationship goes awry, Kit and Kyouko have to mend their new-found love before time runs out. Fortunately, there are other people who are more than willing to lend a hand -- the revival of the two being their first move.

Can be read [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7022458/1/Coccinea here]]. A VisualNovel (which is a [[{{Recut}} director's cut]]) is released some months after the original fic is published.

!!''Coccinea'' uses the following tropes:
* AltumVidetur
** The title of the fic itself -- it means "scarlet". The reason for the conception of the title is stated in the last chapter/phase.
** [[SuperMode Survive Mode]] for Kyouko is known as "Modo Superesse".
* AndTheAdventureContinues: [[spoiler:Sayaka, Len, and Kase try their best to keep the peace of the {{Multiverse}} in the finale, even though all remnants of Xaviax have been eliminated with Mayuri's defeat.]]
* BattleCouple: Kit and Kyouko; Len and Kase.
* BigBad: [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Mayuri Kurotsuchi]], [[spoiler:who turns into [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Kamen Rider]] [[CanonForeigner Abyss]] for the second phase of the final battle against him.]] [[TheManBehindTheMan He is responsible for the entirety of the events in the traitor game, using his Traitors as pawns to lure the rest of the inhabitants of the space station into being his guinea pigs.]] [[spoiler:He's also Xaviax's last remaining commander that must be eliminated at all costs.]]
* BigDamnKiss
* BigGood: Eubulon and Madoka Kaname ([[spoiler:in her goddess form]]).
* TheCameo: Besides Maya, the other characters involved in the traitor game all appear in the final chapter -- even Kyubey. [[spoiler:Homura and Mami, though not named here, also make an appearance.]]
* CanonWelding: Mitakihara is revealed to be in Ventara -- and it's the exact parallel of Kit's city on Earth.
* ContinuityNod: This fic expands on the idea presented at the finale of Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight -- that [[spoiler:Xaviax's remnants are on the loose and must be contained.]]
* EarnYourHappyEnding: The first chapter/phase is full of deception, betrayal, and Kit's own blood ([[spoiler:and when all's said and done, Kyouko's blood is spilled, too -- since Mayuri couldn't find any more suitable people for his experiments because some of his previous victims escaped, he goes for his Traitors instead]]). But as time goes by, Kit and Kyouko reconcile with the help of Eubulon, Madoka, [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheWorld the Descender, and Kanonno]] -- [[spoiler:and in the end, they both [[IJustWantToBeNormal give up their powers]] in order to [[HappilyMarried live under one roof]]]].
** [[spoiler:Sayaka, who was revived by Madoka and Eubulon (despite being DeaderThanDead in canon), has her own happy ending in the form of the complete recovery of [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend Kyousuke]] thanks to Eubulon, and her [[PassingTheTorch takeover of responsibilities from Kit, who retired.]] She's no longer [[LoveMakesYouEvil tainted by jealousy]], either.]]
* FixFic: This fic was conceived as a result of the author's dissatisfaction for the final turn-out of the Traitor Game VI at [[http://www.herotvforums.com the Hero TV Forums]], wherein the Traitors won for the first time in [=HTVF's=] [=TG=] history. The central concept of [[CrossoverShip Kit and Kyouko falling in love]] was already in effect way before the [[WhamEpisode wham finale]] was revealed -- and in the process of writing this fic, several creative juices have flown.
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Unashamedly done by Kit and Kyouko in chapter 3, though the actual sex scene was cut to maintain the fic's T rating. And it comes after their [[TrialByCombat duel]], all thanks to the Descender and Kanonno's help.
* GratuitousGerman
-->'''Kyouko''': ''Betrügerei...ist eine wonne''. (Deception... is bliss.)
* HappilyMarried: Who else?
* HistoryRepeats: Kyouko being revealed to be a pawn of Mayuri, much to Kit's dismay; mirrors [[spoiler:Kanonno being a pawn of Widdershin, much to the Descender's dismay.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal
* IShouldWriteABookAboutThis: Kit and Kyouko, [[spoiler:HappilyMarried,]] co-author a book which details their entire adventures in the traitor game up to their [[EarnYourHappyEnding hard-earned ending.]] This scene also resembles the last episode of Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight, complete with a [[TheCameo cameo]] by Maya.
* {{Irony}}: Uttered by Kit when he learned that Kyouko was betrayed by Mayuri after betraying him.
* LampshadeHanging
-->'''Kyouko:''' Hey, Kit. Are we gonna walk this long road by foot?
-->'''Kit:''' No, Kyouko. What would a Kamen Rider be without his bike?
-->'''Kyouko:''' Tee hee. Oh, you.
* {{Montages}}: Messages spoken by [[LightNovel/TrinityBlood Seth Nightroad]], [[Anime/CrayonShinChan Shinnosuke Nohara]], and [[VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters Gig]] warning Kit of his disadvantage of loving a traitor like Kyouko during the traitor game were played back during the second chapter.
* ThePowerOfLove: What powers Dual Survive Mode, which grants ''both'' Kit and Kyouko [[SuperMode Survive Mode]]. Both Eubulon and Madoka encourage this kind of power-up.
* PreClimaxClimax
* ScrewDestiny: Kit and Kyouko use ThePowerOfLove to do this to prevent themselves from sliding into Type 1 of SlidingScaleOfFreeWillVsFate -- specifically, [[spoiler: their descent into being an evil Kamen Rider and a witch respectively.]]
* SealedWithAKiss
* ShoutOut:
** The titles of the five chapters (phases) are references to five choice songs that fit the chapters' respective moods. They are ''[[Music/{{Queen}} Too Much Love Will Kill You]]'', ''Careless Whisper'' (the Music/{{Seether}} version is used here in place of the George Michael original), ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfTheWorld Sad Memory]]'' (used originally in [[spoiler: the battle against Kanonno]]), ''[[VideoGame/SaGa3 True Divine Battle]]'', and ''[[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight Dive into the Mirror]]'' (used originally as [[RecursiveImport the Japanese dub]]'s opening theme).
*** The additional chapters/phases in the [[ReCut visual novel]] aren't safe, either. Phase 0 is entitled ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Connect]]'', and Phase Extra is entitled ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Clementia]] ~ [[VideoGame/RomancingSaGa Wipe Away the Tears]]''.
** Kyouko taunted Kit with [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Garland's]] quip from ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' right in the first chapter.
** Kit's last two lines in the first chapter are based on the last two lines of Jose Rizal's final poem, ''Mi Ultimo Adiós''.
** In the second chapter, the [[SubliminalSeduction backmasked message]] of the song [[Music/ElectricLightOrchestra Fire on High]] is spoken after the [[{{Montages}} montage]], replacing "music" with "destructive relationship".
** At the beginning of the third chapter, Kit noticed that the healing of his fatal wound was the [[Anime/AngelBeats work of the SSS.]]
** Also in chapter 3, Madoka's whisper to Kit contains the famous line from Nora Aunor's movie ''Film/{{Himala}}'' (Miracle).
** Kyouko's quote as she begins to unleash a rain of spears on Kit in their duel is also [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV Exdeath's]] [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy EX-Burst quote.]]
** [[Series/KamenRiderDenO "From start to finish we were at a climax."]]
** The final battle against Mayuri is meant to invoke the final battle in ''VideoGame/{{SaGa 3}}'' -- well, the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS version, that is.
** Mayuri mocking ThePowerOfLove contains some lines of Music/LadyGaga's "Bad Romance". He also takes a line from [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka's]] self-help booklet.
** Kit and Kyouko's PreAssKickingOneLiner? [[Series/KamenRiderDouble "Now, count your sins!"]]
** Sayaka performs [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Lightning's]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI the Warrior of Light's]] [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy EX-Bursts,]] with their quotes stated verbatim. And she does them all with [[Series/KamenRiderBlade the Blay Rouzer.]]
** Mayuri's BadassBoast before the second phase of the final battle contains the subtitle of ''VideoGame/{{SaGa 3}}'': "The Ruler of Space-Time".
** In response to the above, Len mentions UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden's death.
** Kit and Kyouko's [[CombinationAttack combined]] [[FinishingMove Final Vent]] borrows some aesthetics and lines from [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Kain's]] [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy EX-Burst.]]
** And once Mayuri ([[spoiler:Abyss]]) is defeated, he lets out [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII the Emperor's]] [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy [=KO=] quote,]] both in English and Japanese.
** Before Mayuri [[spoiler:is finally sent to the Advent Void forever, he lets out Xaviax's final three words.]]
** The Descender and Kanonno, both satisfied with the results of their efforts to bring Kit and Kyouko back together again, utter "May your mythologies be always radiant" in the final chapter.
* TitleDrop: The titles of the chapters are mentioned in the chapters themselves. Also, the title of the fic is also the title of a [[IShouldWriteABookAboutThis book co-authored by Kit and Kyouko.]]
* TrialByCombat: The climax of chapter 3, the duel between Kit and Kyouko. The purpose of the duel is to release their pent-up negative emotions before they turn into evil energy that will swallow them both. [[spoiler:The emotions (and the energy) were indeed released and banished, ending the duel in a draw.]]
* TrueLovesKiss
