Recap: The Emiya Clan Paradox Sun
Reiko had mixed feelings about drinking.
- Main Character: Touma, Reiko
- Crossover: Valkyria Chronicles
- Synopsis: Touma and Reiko accidentally fall into another world where a war rages across the earth. Reiko is taken prisoner by one side, and Touma is enlisted by the other. Both must cope with the realities of their new life, try and find a way to bring themselves home together, and above all, keep their spirits from breaking under the weight of war.
- Chapter 1 can be found here
- Another Dimension: The VC!Verse
- Boring, but Practical: Most of Touma's abilities fall under this. He doesn't wield flashy Sekirei powers, complicated magecraft, or terrifying Noble Phantasms, but given the right tools and a bit of time, he can be more dangerous on the battlefield than most of his siblings.
- The Brigadier: Captain Varrot fills this role, since most of the high command are non entity assholes.
- Camp Lesbian: Dallas, and boy does she express it.
- The Captain: Eleanor Varrot: She's even willing to put up with Touma calling her Auntie.
- Cerebus Syndrome: Like Touma's dual personae, the story becomes far darker in combat, and then lightens up considerably outside of it.
- Cold-Blooded Torture: What Reiko has to go through at the hands of Clementia Forster
- Cold Sniper: Marina Wulfstan
- Dark and Troubled Past: Those around Touma and Reiko keep finding out pieces of this.
- Dream Sequence: Touma has quite a few. Some fall into Nightmare Sequence territory.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: Rodriguez, but even he has problems breaking Third Platoon.
- Falling Into Command: Touma is given command over a third of the squad as a platoon leader before they head off into combat. Subverted in that he actually has combat experience and training thanks to his siblings.
- Fantastic Racism: Prevalent against Darcsens. Touma's unwillingness to listen to it is what endears him to them.
- Father to His Men: Most of the main Gallian officers. Touma most of all.
- General Ripper: The Gallian High Command when it comes to the Militia. Most of the Imperials.
- The Heart: Freesia
- Heavy Sleeper: Touma.
- Sleepwalking: Touma is such a heavy sleeper that one time, he walks around the training field, then back to the barracks and no one knows. And how does his squadmates find out? For the male, it's the case mentionned above. For the female, Touma snucks into their room, climb up and hugged Marina.
- Killed Off for Real: Just like in the game, people (including in Squad 7) can and will die.
- The Lancer: Vyse, from Skies of Arcadia fame, acts as Touma's second in command.
- Like an Old Married Couple: Marina describes Welkin and Alicia's interactions as this. And according to Touma, so does Kiri and Artemis.
- Manipulative Bastard: Maximilian, very much so.
- Mildly Military: The entire Militia, but Touma and Third Platoon most of all.
- More Expendable Than You: Touma towards both his men and the other NC Os he serves with.
- The Nick Namer: Touma gives pretty much everyone in his command, plus the other officers, some rather silly nicknames that he calls them by outside of comabt.
- Only Sane Man: Aika and Karl, both of whom got roped into Third by virtue of being connected to one of the problem children of the squad (who were purposefully shoved into Third).
- Person of Mass Destruction: Selvaria and Reiko.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Captain Varrot and Lieutenant Gunther for the Gallians. Selvaria Bles and Radi Jaegar for the Imperials (mainly Reiko).
- Red Baron: Johann is apparently well known as "The Iron" for feats before the story. Touma eventually becomes known as "The Ghost of Eden"
- Sergeant Rock: Largo and Ghost!Touma.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: Everyone, sooner or later, if they survive.
- Shipper on Deck: Reiko is trying to play matchmaking for Selvaria and Johann.
- Split Personality: Touma and "The Ghost"
- Stockholm Syndrome: Reiko toward Selvaria and Johann.
- The Stoic: Nils and Marina. Ghost!Touma as well.
- Team Mom: Alicia
- Team Dad: Welkin
- Troubled Backstory Flashback: Touma past gets plenty of reveals over time.
- Undying Loyalty: Touma to the squad. Reiko to the only two people she actually likes on the Imperial side.
- War Is Hell: It just gets worse and worse as you go on.
