Shared Strength is a Sword Art Online fan fiction written by KnightEstoc.

A What If? story in which Shino/Sinon is present in the original Aincrad arc. In this story Sinon meets Kirito before the being of the death game, and through various circumstances, becoming her Only Friend.

Tropes found in this fanfiction:

  • The Ace: Kirito, as per usual.
  • Alpha Bitch: Endou/Eterne, Type 1. As per canon, Endou bullys poor Shino over murdering someone. She is also part of SAO, joining up with Laughing Coffin. Tipping off the rest of the guild about the raid on their hide out just to get back at Sinon for "stealing Kirito" from her.

  • Ascended Extra: Numerous characters, but most notably Argo.
  • Boy Meets Girl
  • Chilly Reception
  • Cry into Chest: A few times, namely Sinon into Asuna or the rare Kirito moments. Also Sachi into Kirito,especially when Keita jumps off Aincrad and kills himself.
  • Death by Adaptation: Asuna... for all of about five seconds, literally.
    • Lind ends up dying after Heathcliff slashes his head off in the final boss battle.
    • Due to the game not ending at Floor 75, by the time the story's over, Kayaba states the number of players still alive by the end is 3952, in canon the survivor count was 6147. That means an additional 2195 players both named (like Lind mentioned above) and unnamed were killed trying to clear those additional 25 floors.
  • Doomed by Canon: The Moonlit Black Cats, except for Sachi.
  • Face Your Fears: Sinon telling the rest of the group about her past, also finally being able to stand up against Eterne.

  • First-Name Basis: Shino and Kazuto. Technically Asuna as well.
  • Five-Man Band:
  • For Want of a Nail: Sinon being in SAO causes Kirito to not play solo, leading to a drastically different story line.
  • Honorary Uncle: Technically Aunt, but Sachi, Asuna, and Sinon all apply. Mainly Sachi though.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Eterne tries numerous times to get Sinon away from Kirito, goes so far as to trying to have her killed off.
  • New Transfer Student
  • Polyamory
  • Ship Tease: Very much so, at least until chapter twenty nine.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Sachi survives the trap massacre due to Kirito accidentally pushing her in his rush to save the others, knocking her to the floor and causing the door to close before she can follow.

  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Sinon, obviously. Ice in public, sugar in private.
  • Team Mom: Sachi.
  • These Hands Have Killed: Sinon, and later Kirito
    Kirito: I killed two of them... With my sword, I ended two lives...
  • Thousand-Yard Stare: Used humorously when describing a quest the Shining Blades went on.
    Sachi: Goblins...
    Silica: Lots of goblins...
    Sinon: Far, far too many goblins...
    Kirito: And then just when you think they're gone...
    Asuna: More goblins...
  • Triang Relations: Type 8, Sinon and Asuna agree to share Kirito, who reluctantly agrees.
  • True Companions: Shining Blades.
