Darth Wiki / Alchemist Jacket Panic

Go To

Alchemist Jacket Panic is a fanfic idea by Lelouch Zero that has been more or less in Development Hell since mid-2006. While the name may hint at a simple X Meets Y Meets Z crossover (in this case, Fullmetal Alchemist + Full Metal Jacket + Full Metal Panic!, with all the implications that would follow), it was initially planned as much, MUCH more than that. Later revisions to the idea have seen entire series have their roles reduced significantly or outright removed, while other series have been added to the mess.


The intial story prompt was basically an Apocalypse Now ripoff with Roy Mustang and his unit (plus characters from Final Fantasy VII, S Cryed, and Tales of Symphonia for some unfathomable reason [S-Cry-Ed got to stay because Alters are somewhat similar to alchemy; both FFVII and ToS have been axed completely]) going to the jungles of Cambodia to track down the traitor King Bradley and his team of rogue alchemists and Alter users, who are collaborating with renegade Soviet Colonel Volgin on a secret project that has the potential to shift the balance of power in favor of the North Vietnamese. Unfortunately for Volgin and his buddies, they need a certain piece of Black Technology to transform their Military Mashup Machine from an Awesome, but Impractical Glass Cannon to a true superweapon capable of bringing those damned Yanks with Tanks and their South Vietnamese lapdogs to their knees. However, this particular section of the story has been more or less shelved in order to focus exclusively on...


...our good friend Kaname Chidori, who just so happens to share the same city (and in most cases, the same school) with Haruhi Suzumiya, Lelouch Lamperouge, Tamaki Suoh, Tohru Honda, Negi Springfield, Ichigo Kurosaki, Saber, Saya Otonashi, Shana, Mio Akiyama, Madoka Kaname, Minato Arisato, Souji Seta, Kotonoha Katsura, Hayate Ayasaki, Yuri Nakamura, Taiga Aisaka, Misuzu Kamio, Ayu Tsukimiya, Nagisa Furukawa, Haruka Nogizaka, Sena Kashiwazaki, and perhaps the casts of just about every other school-based anime, manga, and video game in existence. (Lots of Canon Defilement was needed to shoehorn everybody in, by the way.) Kaname is still a Whispered, which means that she's a highly valued commodity to various parties (the American and Japanese governments, the KGB, and Colonel Volgin, to name a few). Which means everyone's favorite child soldier, Sousuke Sagara, has been assigned to protect her.


One more thing: The year is 2006, Vietnam is still divided into North and South, Korea is united, the Soviet Union and the Cold War are still going strong, Canada and Mexico are part of the United States, and Chinese democracy is not just a Guns N Roses album.

While the backstory and the basic plot have all been hashed out to some degree or another, actual writing of a finalized version has yet to commence on a significant scale, hence why it's here in the Unpublished Works section. Much of this page is essentially playing "spot the trope" with existing production documents and rough drafts. Spoilers abound, but whatever; this fic most likely won't be published in this troper's lifetime anyway.

Maybe a character page should be split off from here.
