Fic: And Then There Were...
What would’ve been one of my entries for the fic party of Senshi Civil War if I had gotten my act together. I blame a week with a lot of old books and too much time to think for the idea and just general blasldkjafs for not getting it up in time. I’m still… not super satisfied with it but it’s something and it’s written which is more than I can honestly say for a lot of things I’ve started so. Here it is. Tagging docholligay because one way or another I think you might like it. Hope the rest of you do too.
Trigger for character death and blood

It had been an accident. In battle, no one could be everywhere. It was hard to see where anyone was beside yourself. And even then you could lose yourself in the blood. All the blood and flesh and the feeling of your own being rushing and pounding as you rushed and pounded into your enemy. Seeing anyone much other than the one at your side was next to impossible.
But they had all felt it. The pain that had reached inside of them all and torn a hole wide open. Darkness voided out the Light that she had filled in each of them, tearing apart the souls that had guided them through countless lives and deaths, and leaving nothing but a faint hollow ring. They had known what it meant from the first breath after. But how? How? Someone was supposed to be with her.
They were supposed to be her guardians.
