Guilty Crown: The Lost Kingdoms is a retelling of the Guilty Crown
series with the five magical girls from Puella Magi Madoka Magica
as AU guests. It somehow averts the tropes use in typical crossovers, and serve as a movie fic with a possibility of 9 chapters.
The setting is also a stand-alone AU of a notorious fanfic franchise called YuYuGiDigiMoon
, in which the outbreak of Lost Christmas (taking place in December 2012 instead of 2028 to coincide real-life predictions) wiped out most of Japan’s heroes. This serves as a background and new plot twists unlike the show for the characters to interact in dark times.
