Several Epilogues, Part 1

Tuesday, April 1, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

(Im)Possible alternate endings, for the heartbroken and discerning fan… (I may have overdone the lighthearted feel in some places, so most of our beloveds are probably out of character.)

Not being especially talented in writing, I’m always looking for concrit. Do give me your opinions.

Ending #1

Because the Universe has a Causality Law (GDxYN)

“You don’t want to be a minister anymore.”

Gil Dong had that stubborn look in his eyes. “I tried to change things around, but look where that got me.”

Chang Hui wanted to bang his head against the nearest pillar. All that effort convincing the nobles and the man quits. Honestly, it was enough to give anyone a case of acute tendonitis, migraine and wrinkles. (Not that Chang Hui admits to being concerned about wrinkles. Not at all.)

“So,” The young king said, with considerable effort, “What are you thinking of doing? Rallying your people to fight the evil, ravenous nobles?”

Gil Dong gave him a strange look.

“Have you been eating those weird cookies again? You know, the ones with the cute red berries in them.”

“No. After what – No.” Chang Hui remembers those cookies. And Enok. Eating them. And also what happened after. He shudders.

Gil Dong grinned. “Ah, well. I was thinking of taking that break I’d mentioned. Planning a revolution is hard work. And now that you’ve got everything almost set up, you don’t even need me around all the time anymore. If you don’t do a good job as an egalitarian king, I may have to come back and hit you, though.”

Chang Hui felt floored. He’d expected Gil Dong to protest a little more… vehemently. This nonchalance almost made him believe those rumours about the throne room containing mercury fumes. His comrade-in-arms hadn’t noticed his poleaxed expression, however, and continued rhapsodizing about his trip to China in a similar vein.

“Wait, wait.” The poor king massaged his temples. “What happened to your grand plan for abolishing unfairness and bringing justice to the people?”

Now Gil Dong was genuinely concerned. He looked at Chang Hui’s pale face and tried to put it in words the exhausted king could understand.

“This kingdom changing thing – you have to realize it doesn’t take one day. I didn’t expect you to gain the throne and suddenly create utopia. Are you following me? Good. Now the important part is to make sure these nobles listen to you, even if the real sword doesn’t have an inscription. Speaking of which, we should definitely destroy it.”

The candles flickered mysteriously, and the embossed golden dragons seemed to roll their eyes in the silence.

Chang Hui raised an eyebrow.

Gil Dong grinned.

Before he left, he waved a nonchalant hand at the king, “By the way, thank Lord Seo for those mushrooms, will you? We took a sneak peek at his packages and found all sorts of goodies.”

~~~

When they found out, none of the ministers liked that, exactly. The destroying of the sword, or the fact that Gil Dong was going off to explore the big wide world now that his king was safely on the throne. They liked having a united target around. They pleaded for Chang Hui to imprison the impudent affront to their authority, but he was having none of it. Finding them all together in the back room of one of his own warehouses, plotting to force his hand with the sword only made his temper worse (not that you could tell these days, the guy was practically a walking dragon).

Lord Seo and Ryu attempted to grovel. “Your majesty, we are concerned with this Hong Gil Dong character. He is a threat to your throne!”

Chang Hui’s eyes fell on the sword in Ryu’s lap. “Yes, of course he is a threat to the throne.”

The nobles looked relieved at his seeming acquiescence, but their relief evaporated when Chang Hui’s even tone continued, “He only risked his own life to help me onto the throne you’re all talking about in the first place! Just because the man believes that everyone deserves the same opportunities, that birth does not determine everything there is in this world, you think he is a threat. Does he threaten your livelihoods, or your pride? If he does pose a danger to my country, I will of course take action, but you are creating trouble where there is none.

“If anyone attempts to use this sword to threaten me, I will see it as a betrayal of the royal house. I will treat the traitor with all appropriate measures handed down by those traditions you so cherish. Is that clear?”

The nobles bowed, astonished that such a young king was able to exert his influence and come into his authority so quickly. Lord Ryu looked unhappy, but then he remembered his own troubles dealing with Enok, and decided that he had enough stressing his heart already. When his granddaughter got something in her head, she was as stubborn as her father. Lord Ryu shook his head all the way home. The youngsters of today were getting more and more disobedient.

~~~

Enok moped. She had gotten surprisingly good at moping, and as reading and being a bored noble didn’t suit her, she had lots of time to practice at Yongmun.

It was going to drive Lady Noh mad. She didn’t mind feeding the girl all the time (though even her cookie suppliers were starting to take notice of the amounts), and she was cute when she wasn’t moping, but really. Corporate morale was dropping.

It was time to drop hints about the benefits of travel to Lord Ryu.

~~~

There was a whistling in the woods. Birds, squirrels and various other cutesy woodland animals felt the distinct urge to leap out of their winter hiding places and frolic around a random human princess.

Except, of course, your princess is capable of eating an entire roast oxen at one sitting and practices dubious personal hygiene – but that doesn’t make her any less princessy – what’s that, you say? She’s just a noble? Oh well, she’s still Someone We Like.

More importantly, she is Someone The Main Characters Like. Almost Enough to Kill Each Other Over, in fact.

But, at the moment, she is happily making her way to (the appropriately named) China, anticipating mouth-watering delights from the Land of Silk.

Whether she meets our intrepid hero or not, well. That’s up to Causality.

~~~

In a place far away from Enok and Gil Dong, Chang Hui crept away from his eunuchs. Sometimes their enthusiasm for giving him baths was just too much.

He really missed having Gil Dong around.

~~~

End part one.

Anyone want tragedies… tell me, and I will either write you one or point you in the direction of a melodrama. 😀

Love,

Sevenses

    Ohhhh
    C’est trop drole, j’ai failli m’étouffer!
    Mes passages préférés:

    “Chang Hui wanted to bang his head against the nearest pillar. All that effort convincing the nobles and the man quits. Honestly, it was enough to give anyone a case of acute tendonitis, migraine and wrinkles. (Not that Chang Hui admits to being concerned about wrinkles. Not at all.)” *Loving CH caring about wrinkles* (can GD be the pillar?)

    “By the way, thank Lord Seo for those mushrooms, will you?” Mushrooms forever!

    “Enok moped. She had gotten surprisingly good at moping, and as reading and being a bored noble didn’t suit her, she had lots of time to practice at Yongmun.” Moping is good. I do that all the time. Way to go, EN!

    “though even her cookie suppliers were starting to take notice of the amounts)” LOL. They really must be making benefits.

    “Chang Hui crept away from his eunuchs. Sometimes their enthusiasm for giving him baths was just too much.” The eunuchs were the guys in green, right? Now that I think of it… lol. But this is not “Hong Gil Dong and the Magic Rainbow”

    J’attends la partie 2 avec impatience!
    Sevenses, keep up the amazing work!

    Love,

    All my favourite parts are summed up by flyingcrispi =D You really have a knack for writing, Sevenses.

    And.. tragic ending, are you kidding? The Hong sisters already took care of that. Looking forward to part 2!! (Tomorrow, perhaps?)

    I’m glad you liked!

    This was the GDxYN ending.

    Parts 2, 3 and 4 will focus on different pairings. ^^

    (Hong Gil Dong and the Magic Rainbow? I didn’t get that joke…)

    May I request an ending of fluffy romance? This one has brilliant humor, but not enough romance to satisfy my GDxYN hunger (or CHxYN, for that case) 😛

    Oh oh oh, is this a post-drama fanfic station? 😛 Can I request a song, I mean an ending too?
    How about … … a … ridiculous but extra-uber creative, fun one? Just for the heck of it.

    I plead guilty to all counts of leaning towards CH.

    Alright, so:

    – 1 goofy ending
    – 1 extra GDxYN, with lots of cream and sugar…

    The HGD fandom café opens tomorrow, lol.

    Sevenses,

    You definitely have a knack for writing. I really enjoyed it. I really wanted Chang Hui to get the girl.
