drifter end

anonymous asked:

So for the Drifters crossover, let's say the TouDans somehow got into that world. How would Izuminokami and Horikawa react to seeing Hijikata on the End's side after learning what the Black King and his army is doing? In addition to that, how would Hasebe and Souza react to meeting Nobunaga and learning he's on the "good" side (or as good as he can get)?

Okay! Finally back at it, I’ve been a little distracted lately with life but it’s all good now and back to answering I go. I finally sat down and reread some Drifters I got so enthusiastic I didn’t stop until I caught up. I kind of figured this would be the ask which is a good thing, I think it makes for a very interesting topic!

Hijikata’s swords

I’m torn between thinking that Kane-san would be in denial about the Ends being the bad guys, trying to convince himself it’s with good intentions. Or he would be really hurt, his image of Hijikata shaken, and he would try to accept that their masters don’t always stand on the right side of things. He might even decide that he and Horikawa would need to stand in and protect Hijikata’s honour by trying to stop him.

With Horikawa I think its less personal, he really doesn’t seem anywhere near as attached to Hijikata as he is Kane-san. Though I think he would also be incredibly disappointed to see where Hijikata stands on things. More than anything he would be concerned about Kane-san’s feelings over this.

Nobunaga’s swords

Hasebe has always had a deep respect for Nobunaga and his abilities despite everything, so to see Nobunaga doing good (on a level) honestly makes a bit of pride swell in him. If his loyalties didn’t lie with another master in another time, he would probably want to lend his strength to Nobunaga and their fight.

Souza is the big one. It makes him so uncomfortable. Not just seeing Nobunaga, but seeing how he has learned and grown as a person, giving the leadership position to Toyohisa and actually reflecting on his failures in life. Souza wouldn’t be able to handle it, it conflicts and overwhelms with everything he had ever thought about Nobunaga before. He’d probably pessimistically insist Nobunaga is just after power and control in this world too, he wouldn’t want to see Nobunaga as a good guy its too much for him to accept.


And with the coming of 2016, the Drifter Au comes to a close as 2015 does. Bill finally gets to achieve his ultimate goal and Ford pays the largest price for their transgressions. The multiverse will be rebuilt and everyone who has fallen during this time will wake up as if this was nothing more than a bad dream but it’s a world without Bill Cipher in it.

Or is it?

We’ll be posting the final log to the Drifter Au alongside with the screen shots of the final three scenes from the draw pile later on. We want to thank everyone who’s read the Au and has enjoyed the journey it’s taken us. 

It’s been wild!


I’m not sure I’m 100% convinced in the whole “Drifter-Was-A-Science-Experiment” down in the South Labs, but it makes for an intriguing story. Either way, it won’t be getting any elaboration here since it’ll divert too much from the main story.

This is the product of much cutting back and laziness. I had more content (mostly an extended battle with The Summoner instead of the flimsy one-shot kill with a sword he got here), but ultimately cut a lot to squeeze all I need in five pages.

I feel like every update ends with Drifter and Guardian cuddling. I swear this was not intended, it just happened!
