Fanfic: The Merry Killers
The Merry Killers is the latest fanfic by the Sage of Toads, and takes place in the same universe as The Key to a Successful Interview and 'Beautiful Destroyer Sailor Moon.

As is usual for a Sage of Toads fanfic, the fic is a deconstruction of Love Hina.

The twist?

The Urashima clan are assassins who work for the Emperor himself! And apparently, more than one of the Hinata-Sou girls are the same!

Read it here.

This fanfic contains examples of:

  • Child Soldier: Mitsune's family are trained to kill at a very young age.
  • Immortality Hurts: Keitaro may not be killable (so far), but he can still feel pain.
  • Shout-Out: As per the course in Sage of Toads fics. Examples include Deadpool himself being given half a billion dollars, put on an island with Keitaro, and told to go nuts with the money to try and kill Keitaro...It all failed.
  • Split Personality: As result of Shinobu's harsh training, she has a second personality called "Red" who embodies her murderous side. Wearing red clothing, no matter how small, causes this personality to come out.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: The legendary Naru/Keitaro relationship passes this stage VERY early.
    • To explain, they actually get together in the third chapter, after Naru's identity as the "Promise Girl" was revealed along with Keitaro inheriting the Hinata-sou. Naru sees it as fate having them reunite after all those years and decides to sleep with Keitaro shortly after.
