If this troper had one complaint, it'd be that the author obviously set up a sequel and then dropped off the face of the internet. What Could Have Been, indeed.
This is seriously one of the best fics in the entire category. It's the kind of fanfic that just makes you wish it was the actual anime. The progress is splendid and the descriptiveness is bloody amazing.
It's a brilliant fic: the AU is consistent and both fits into the story easily whilst not detracting from the characters. Despite being different, it's just as good as the original work (though more serious).
An AU world that is plausible and well thought out while keeping the characters recognisable.
