Fanfic / Ashikabi Of Thunder And Lightning

Go To

Ashikabi of Thunder and Lightning is a Sekirei fanfic by SeerKing where Minato wings Hikari and Hibiki first, thanks to his mom deciding to help prepare him for the plan.

Sahashi Takami decides that it is pointless to try and prevent her children from entering the Sekirei Plan and gives Minato a hand in starting his 'flock.' Minato x Harem, starting with Hikari and Hibiki.


Tropes:

  • Accidental Marriage: Yukari is surprised to learn that she's technically married to Oriha after the Sekirei bonded herself to her to get a power boost big enough to defeat the Higa thugs after running into the Ashikabi. Thankfully, Yukari isn't worried about her being female, though she wasn't planning on settling down with a specific girl until after college, and as she notes below, Oriha is a Clingy Jealous Girl.

  • Achilles' Heel: Kuruse can't teleport her tridents to her position if she doesn't have good visibility.
  • Adaptational Heroism:
    • Some of Minato's Sekirei were winged by antagonistic Ashikabi in canon.
    • A certain Discipline Squad member is slightly less Ax-Crazy in this interpretation.
  • Aggressive Submissive: Yomi describes Oriha as this, saying that she's the kind to "top from the bottom." She'll learn Yukari's fetishes to the point that she will bring her to cross-eyed pleasure after one session, and guide her Ashikabi into doing what she wants while making Yukari think it was her idea.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: A significant number of Minato's Sekirei let him wing them because he didn't try to force things, and even protected them from more forceful Ashikabi like Higa.
  • Bullying a Dragon:
    • Higa sends hitmen after Minato. Not only does the plan fail due to not having proper info on his Sekirei, but Takami is also livid and sics the Discipline Squad on him, with their leader breaking his arm in the process. Not that he learns from it.

    • Some of Higa's thugs chase after Oriha. The only reason they thought that they could get away with it was that her powers were weakened without an Ashikabi, and they got too close to her for her to be able to use her powers effectively.
    • Some foreign operatives try to kidnap Takami, Akitsu, and Kusano. They get their asses handed to them by Minato's Sekirei.
    • Yukari overreacts when she sees Minato Winging Akitsu, and ends up "disciplined" by the twins.
  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: If a Sekirei has penetrative vaginal sex before their power properly matures, they would almost certainly have their power growth stunted (which is part of why Miya is so strict about there being no hanky panky under her roof). Of course, this means that non-penetrative acts aren't an issue...
    • This also doesn’t apply to the male Sekirei.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Yukari is worried about Oriha being this if she tries to get into a relationship with another girl (besides other Sekirei of course). The fact that she keeps getting cuddled when asleep by her (which she wouldn't mind if Oriha weren't like an octopus in the strength of her grip) and keeps getting her clothes shredded in the process, she may have a point.

  • The Dreaded: Karasuba. Minato can trick a group of foreign special ops forces into giving up their bosses just by giving them the choice of siccing her on them vs. life in prison. Even Minaka is scared of her to some degree.
  • Everyone Is Bi: The female Sekirei are stated to be mostly bisexual, though they tend to prefer men over women, and there are a few straight girls and lesbians in there. And that's not even considering examples like Yukari.
  • Exotic Extended Marriage: Winging a Sekirei being similar to marriage is emphasized a bit more than in canon.
  • Failsafe Failure: Karasuba couldn't respond to Takami's calls because Minaka heard chatter about an attack but got the where wrong, so she was in a Faraday cage the whole time it went down.
  • For Want of a Nail:
    • The first major deviance is Takami realizing that she can't stop her kids from getting involved with the Plan, and Minato getting his arm broken by his ass of a landlord when Hikari and Hibiki are with her before being released. She then asks the twins to pick him up, and they find that they react to him far more strongly than the twins do Seo, so they end up being winged by him after Takami gives her blessing, Musubi following soon after.
    • Uzume still meets Chiho, but she's transferred to a hospital in America before she can wing her, leading to her choosing Minato instead.
    • More than one Sekirei that were winged at least semi-forcefully in canon are rescued as a result of Minato and/or his Sekirei being in the right place at the right time and end up willingly being winged by Minato.
    • Takami, worried that Yukari's Big Brother Worship was developing into Big Brother Attraction, tried to talk to her about it... and only ended up making her feelings towards him more intense and making her Tsundere for Minato.
    • Oriha runs into Yukari when being chased by Hagi's thugs, and gets winged by her on purpose after realizing that she's a compatible Ashikabi so she can fight them off' This leads to Yukari discovering that Minato is an Ashikabi far earlier than in canon.
    • As a result of Minato rescuing Akitsu and having Takami pick her up to fix her, a group of foreign operatives decide to attack and capture the ice Sekirei, Takami, and Kusano. They fail, however, thanks to Minato's Sekirei.
    • Kusano will have more control over her abilities due to being aged up properly.
  • Freudian Excuse: a certain water Sekirei’s dislike of Ashikabi is a result of horror stories from her handler.
  • Hammerspace: Kuruse can pull her tridents out of nowhere. She does so by teleporting them to her from a vault MBI set up.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Takami's reaction to the information in Absurdly Youthful Mother.
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • Despite the twins choosing to bond with Minato after reacting a lot more strongly to him, Seo still wings a beautiful pair of Sekirei.
    • Kusano still communicated with Minato through his dreams.
    • Shiina still bonds with his canon Ashikabi.
  • Loophole Abuse: As Matsu and Uzume lampshade, penetration is what will stunt a Sekirei's power if done too early, but other kinds of sexual acts are still possible. Miya is annoyed at them figuring this out but doesn't argue the point.
  • Mama's Baby, Papa's Maybe: Minaka suspects that Minato and Yukari are his kids, but Takami refuses to confirm it in any way to him.
  • Mindlink Mates: Sekirei, as usual.It's noted that Minato is becoming more confident as a result of the bonds he has with his Sekirei, and his Sekirei are calmed in turn, though the number of Sekirei in Minato's flock has resulted in the effects being most prominent in him. One example of this in the Sekirei is how Mastu is less likely to go into a rant.
  • Obfuscating Insanity: While demented, Minaka is nowhere near as insane as he acts, citing that people tend to underestimate his awareness if they think he's completely nuts.
  • Parental Neglect: Minaka showed no interest in Minato or Yukari until they started school. By then Takami had forbidden him to see them and didn't even confirm to him that they were his children, and still refuses to do so, though that might be out of bitterness towards the Plan keeping her away from them herself.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: Kusano is aged up from a preteen to about the same age as the other Sekirei.
  • Polyamory: With the original series having this format and the author, is this a surprise?
  • Rage Breaking Point: Uzume snaps at Miya after the latter scolds her with the dreaded Hannya mask for a dirty joke, telling Miya that even if she doesn't react to Minato, she's still going to ask to move in as it's better than dealing with someone trying to force her morals and opinions on others.
  • Raised by Grandparents: Yukari and Minato.
  • Rational Fic: Considering the author, it's not a surprise that many characters act more rationally than in canon.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • Put a young man barely into his 20s with a harem made of members of an Inhumanly Beautiful Race with an above average libido unable to have sexual intercourse until certain conditions are met, and you get a group who are so sexually frustrated they are chomping at the bit for confirmation that said conditions having been met.
    • Trying to force one's more traditional beliefs when it comes to intercourse on individuals who have looser regard to them will only cause backlash and resentment even if the latter respects the former.
  • Shout-Out: Minaka apparently engineered exploding lemons.
    • He also references Dumbledore's line about how the consequences of one's mistakes increase with how smart they are.
  • Shut Up, Kirk!: When Miya criticizes Takami for getting her son involved in the Sekirei Game, Takami responds that she needs a way to counter the Ashikabi of the South and East as well as hopefully stop Minaka. While Miya could easily do so, her refusal to take up her sword again has forced Takami to find an alternate solution.
  • Smug Snake: Even after the Discipline Squad is sicced on him, Higa still apparently thinks that his victory is all but guaranteed.
  • Supernaturally Young Parent: There are several Sekirei that are siblings or cousins genetically, but Yume and Musubi's genetic relationship is best compared to a mother and her daughter, respectively. Takami has no idea how this is possible since the former was a frozen embryo and the latter an egg when the ship was found. She drank herself unconscious when she found this out and makes her desire more just by thinking about it, and it's likely why Yume could transplant her Tama into Musubi. Her best guess is that either the Sekirei are clones of ones that already existed, or were somehow regressed into a fetal state.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Minato, in part due to the support (and subconscious influence of) his Sekirei, starts becoming more confident and better under pressure, even passing his college exams.
  • Top Wife: Since the twins were winged by Minato first, they're technically considered to both be his First Sekirei.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Miya's prudishness of not allowing Sekirei to have any form of sexual contact in her inn turns out to be because if a female Sekirei has sex before their wings reach a certain length, it permanently halts their power growth before they reach their full potential.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • Uzume snaps after Miya scolds her for making a dirty joke. Uzume accuses Miya of bullying the other Sekirei into following her own "prudish lifestyle." While Miya is shown to have a point (sex, before their power matures, stops a Sekirei from growing stronger), Uzume is still upset that Miya bans all forms of sexual contact and refuses to share any information with the others even if it'd be useful.
    • Takami calls Miya out for just standing by and letting Minaka go ahead with making the Sekirei and Ashikabi fight.
  • When She Smiles: Miya's smile, when she heard that Takami had managed to cure Akitsu, was something to behold.
  • Wild Card: What Takami hopes Minato will be to Minaka and the S-Plan.
