Fanfic / The Yellow Rose

Go To

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The fact that 'Princess' Riliane was the head of the Lucifenian mafia wasn't the strangest thing.
The summary.

the yellow rose is an Evillious Chronicles fanfic made byHeartOfInk and silencvial. It centers around Allen Avadonia, the servant and brother of Riliane Lucifen d'Autriche, the heiress of the Lucifenian mafia known as Yellow Rose. While it starts introducing the crumbling criminal empires and the twin assassins Ney Phutapie and Lemy Abelard, the plot slowly thickens with a present from Prim Marlon to Riliane: a hand mirror that supposedly is part of the Lost Mirror of Lucifenia.

the yellow rose contains examples of:

  • Action Girl: Ney.

  • The Alcoholic: Germaine, even though she hates the taste of alcohol. It's hinted that she became this after Allen disappeared.

  • all lowercase letters: The titles of each chapter and story itself, as well as its prequel story, are stylized this way.

  • Alternate Universe Fic

  • Big Brother Instinct: Both Allen and Gretel qualify, though in Allen's case he's the younger one.

  • Big Fancy House: Allen's opinion of his childhood home, to the point of being suffocating.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: The Lucifen and the Salmhofer/Moonlit twins have particularly dark and messy pasts, with abandonment, murder (one implied and the other, an accidental poisoning.) and arduous training to become assassins.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Allen, naturally. Riliane, Ney and Lemy also fit in to an extent.

  • Advertisement:
  • Dissonant Serenity: Riliane in chapter 4.

  • Half-Identical Twins: Riliane and Allen, and Hansel and Gretel.

  • Hitman with a Heart: Ney and Lemy qualify.

  • I Have Many Names: Besides Allen, he is also known as Alexiel (his birth name) and Kokutan-douji. As the story is still in the beginning, he might have more.

  • Ironic Echo: Considering Allen's fate in canon, it's quite ironic for him to say that he would "give the [Lucifen] House his head himself" for not knowing the customs.

  • Karmic Thief: Allen tries to be this.

  • Knife Nut: Lemy and Riliane.

  • Lady and Knight / Mistress and Servant Boy: Two of the layers of Riliane and Allen's relationship to one another.

  • Odd Friendship: Allen and Gretel.

  • Scenery Porn: A distinct trait of silencvial.

  • Shout-Out: Kyle's ringtone in chapter 4 is "Otome Kaibou" (Girl Dissection), a song by DECO*27.

  • Silk Hiding Steel: Riliane, if Lemy is to be believed.

  • The Mafia: The Lucifen family, obviously.

  • Trauma Button: After his father's poisoning, watching people drink wine and dying in a party. in chapter 4 triggered Allen, to the point of having hallucinations.

  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Riliane and Hansel, if chapter 2 is any indication.

  • Wham Line: This part in chapter 3:
“My brother had the same,” said Ney. “It didn’t pan out well.”
“Hansel? Truly?”
“No, the real son of the woman I’m supposed to be a daughter of,” said Ney. “He’s a very kind man at heart; of the dense sort, but kind. He wanted to be a painter. Mum gave him a mirror as a present for being a good son, one that looked exactly like this, and he… changed.”
