, a Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle
fanfic by FarenMaddox
, is a Real-world AU
massive crossover fic, focusing mainly on the plot and characters from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle
, but featuring a fair few other characters and CLAMP
references from series such as Chobits
and Cardcaptor Sakura
Although it has shades of High School A.U.
for a few characters due to their ages, this is not
your average ensemble cast in the real world story, and major plot events are directly derived from the various canon works that make up Freefall
. The result? An epic, sprawling story that takes place in the city of San Francisco and its surrounds and reinterprets the incredible events of the Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle
and Xxx Ho Lic
timeline through the lens of modern-day America.
There is no magic in Freefall
, no monsters or vampires. Time travel and destiny don’t come into play and Fei Wang Reed
is nowhere to be found. Instead, the story focuses on the lives of the characters and their loved ones as they struggle to survive the hand they've been dealt— together
This fic is complete and there is a sequel in the making.A note on the author’s name choices:
is set in modern-day America, the characters have been renamed accordingly. As such, it might be useful to read the author’s livejournal post
explaining the rationale behind the new names, and to make sure you have an idea of who is who before reading. That said, the characterisation in Freefall
is spot-on and it should be very easy for new readers to pick out which character is which within moments of them appearing.
(Not to be confused with the Furry Webcomic Freefall
