Fanfic: Fairy Without Wings
Magic should exist to protect mankind, not to destroy it.
Lelouch Lamperouge

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. Sounds familiar.

Created by draconichero21, Fairy Without Wings is a crossover between Code Geass and Fairy Tail. It takes the established characters from the Code Geass canon and translates them into the Fairy Tail universe with their personalities mostly intact. Lelouch is still a Magnificent Bastard. Suzaku is still Lawful Good to a fault at times, and Cornelia will still tear off the head of anyone who dares harm her sister Euphemia. However, now they are all mages. In a guild known as Knightmare Frame, they are an ally guild to the famous - maybe even infamous - guild Fairy Tail, but their journey is not one of rainbows, sunshine and butterflies.Word of God 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, but that Mashima flat out ignores or only barely hints at existing. These are things that Lelouch would normally be seen doing on a regular basis.

The third fanfic created by draconichero to get its own tropes page and probably the best written out of the three. While Soul Chess has recently received some Creator Backlash, while still being all in all being considered a good read by most, draconichero is more satisfied with this fic thus far than the majority of Soul Chess.

Now has a character page that Needs Wiki Magic Love.

This Fanfiction contains examples of:

  • All There in the Manual: You can find some brainstorm details about the fic here. The author had a second brainstorm page, but recently took it down because it was considerably spoiler heavy for things to come.
  • An Aesop: Many a quote are like this.
  • And This Is for...: Natsu does this to a member of Omega Sphere for attacking Alzack and Bisca in chapter 7.
  • Badass Army: The Black Knights, Lelouch’s guild subset and Team Lancelot, which is Suzaku’s.
  • Beach Episode: Part of chapters 8 and 9, but it isn’t what you’d expect.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Happens to Guinevere in chapter 38. First by Cornelia and then by Schneizel, Rena, Asura, AND Erza.
  • Black Comedy: This exchange between Lelouch and Schneizel
    Schneizel: And what pray tell would you have liked me to have done with the bodies?
  • Brick Joke: In chapter 36, Cornelia tries to cure Gray of his stripping habit. This goes about as well as one would expect. This trope comes into play when her first attempt to cure Gray involves showing him a picture of 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 then during a debate later in the chapter over posters for the upcoming play, Tohdoh's idea is Jeremiah wearing a speedo.
  • Bring My Red Jacket: 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. God help you if you do somehow damage it.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Iron Star was pretty much asking for the gruesome BEATDOWN that ensued when they pissed Kallen off and subsequently got curbstomped by Marianne. At what point did antagonizing Kallen seem like a good idea?
  • Call Forward: During the flashback of Cornelia’s history, Nonette talks about potentially becoming a Wizard Saint.
  • Chekhov's Gun: 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 Word of God the entire Unistrad arc is chock full of this trope and highly subtle Foreshadowing.
  • Creator In-Joke: The Drunken Spartan in chapter 1. On deviantART the author belongs to a group called the Drunken Spartans.
  • Colony Drop: In a flashback regarding how Angel’s Feather became Fighting Spirit the dark guild Demon’s Horn drops ‘’the moon’’ onto Earth Land. Rakkan throws it back into orbit.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Lelouch’s Spinal Tap ability desegments the cartilage from your spinal column and leaves you in pieces. Overkill much?
  • Darkest Hour: Chapter 42. We have a lycan Kallen, an evil Mirajane, suspicious vampires, endless loops, cursed artifacts, and worst of all...a hairy Lucy.
    • The quote at the end of that chapter said it all
    The dreams are gone. Midnight has come. Darkness is our new kingdom.
  • Dead Person Conversation: 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.
  • 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 the Black Cats of the Full Moon.
    • The only way the character Orochi Bahn is based off of could be more obvious is if had a flashing neon sign dangling over his head that said Expy of Kamina.
  • Femme Fatale: Selina Victoria from the dark guild Demon's Horn. The narration even describes her as one.
  • Framing Device: 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 either fandom, an original character, and even some already existing ones.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • If you’re paying attention you should be able to see the twist that Selina is Suzaku’s Missing Mom coming.
    • Word of God 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 Edolas Marianne.
  • Foregone Conclusion: Two so far:
    • 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. Oh god does it not make things any less heartwrenching when said shoe drops though.
    • Suzaku's arc provides a flashback where we know the ending of the story will end with Juren Rakkan giving up his Wizard Saint status and Angel's Feather becoming Fighting Spirit due to the guild disbanding.
  • Foreshadowing: All over the damn place. We know what’s coming in regards to things entailing Lelouch’s father, Marianne’s history and Suzaku’s history, but nothing concrete at present.
    • Clear cut we’ve had 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.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Sachi
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Tiberius.
  • Hope Spot: Oh so you think that just because Lucy stopped Withengar's curse before the blood of 100 werewolves and 1 demon got onto Withengar's dagger things are fine? WRONG!
  • It Was His Sled: If you are at all familiar with the Code Geass mythos then Zero and Lelouch turning out to be the same person shouldn’t be much of a spoiler.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: The members of Knightmare Frame will do this to yield results if they think it will help.
  • Jump Scare: Poor Lucy gets one of these in chapter 41.
  • Karma Houdini: Averted in so far. Knightmare Frame makes damn sure all their enemies get the beating you want them to...unless you’re name is Suzaku.
    • However, Knightmare Frame themselves sort of get away with manslaughter when it comes to Kallen's berserk rampage early on in the series.
  • Knight Of Cerebrus: By draconichero's admission the Unistrad arc is the darkest he is willing to go without killing anyone. So apparently things can still get worse.
  • Lady Killer In Love: Rorix to Vanessa from Angel's Feather.
  • Love Triangle: 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.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": Pretty much the reaction—reader included—when Acnologia shows up in chapter 31.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Often the topic of debate in this fic.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: 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. I think we all know why that's a problem. Kasumi's birth marked a step in the right direction and Ratatosk even pulled a Rafiki.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • 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 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 Soul Chess.
    • Kasumi can't seem to avoid being Made a Slave can she?
  • Noodle Incident: 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.
  • No Sell: 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, The werewolves just then No Sell 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.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: If you are a member of the Black Knights, you are this.
  • Parental Abandonment: In Kallen’s case and possibly the case of several other members of Knightmare Frame.
  • Please Put Some Clothes On: Lelouch to Milly whenever her Voluntary Shapeshifting leads to a Wardrobe Malfunction.
  • Post Humous Character: Estellise Heurassein.
  • Promoted To Parent: Naoto after the death of his and Kallen’s mother and their father abandoned them.
  • Odd Friendship: With Fairy Tail. 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.
  • Official Couple: While it hasn’t been implemented yet—though it has been teasedWord of God is that the official pairing is Erza and Lelouch.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: The entirety of the Unistrad arc.
  • Rated M for Manly: Pretty much any male member of Fighting Spirit is this.
  • Replacement Goldfish: 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.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Tiberius’ reaction when he sees Kallen with Lelouch.
  • Ship Tease: Oh plenty abound if you have Shipping Goggles on, though the author already has a pairing set in mind.
  • Shout-Out: Any character that is an Expy of another character is likely to have some reference to the series the character the Expy is based off of is from. Other examples include:
  • Take a Third Option: 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.
  • Take That: Shirley’s backstory seems to be a pot shot at religion and/or the Catholic Church. Considering the writer is an atheist…
  • Taking the Bullet: Estellise does this for Cornelia with tragic results.
  • Team Mom: Marianne, guildmaster of Knightmare Frame and woe behold to anyone who makes the mistake of so much as looking at her guild wrong.
  • Tempting Fate: 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!
  • Tragic Dream: Cornelia and Estellise's promise with each other.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Cornelia's sister Estellise.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Kasumi's mother is a succubus while her father is the former guildmaster. Kalina’s father is the king of all demons.
  • Vigilante Man: Zero
  • We Do the Impossible: This is Fighting Spirit's way of life.
  • The Worf Effect: At the end of chapter 46, Wendy, Suzaku, Cornelia, Jeremiah, Gray and Juvia have all been defeated by Withengar off screen.
  • Wham Episode: Given this is draconichero we knew this had to happen eventually. Remember that trip Anya and Gino went on? Well it gets brought up again at the end of chapter 26 and guess what they found? 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 Mirajane is brainwashed and crazy.
  • You Shall Not Pass: Said word for word and played straight by Selina's minions Uma and Oushi,while staring down resident dragon to Hades Bluenote Stinger because of Selina's potential betrayal.
