Hello Clannad fans. Ifm sure youfre reading this because you love what I love, one of the most motivating and moving love stories youfve ever read. Ifve worked really hard on this fanfic, and I hope that you enjoy it. This fanfic is based entirely on the visual novel and not any other sources of Clannad. If you played through the entire visual novel and including the After Story, youfre set to read this fanfic, otherwise I suggest not reading it at all until youfve done playing the visual novel.
Now, onto the spoiler part in which I recommend not reading unless you had done what I suggested above.
Are you sure youfve finished Clannad?
This is your last chance.
This fanfic follows the route of Nagisa after you gotten all the other lights from the other characters. If you donft know what Ifm talking about, donft read the story because you havenft played the visual novel. After you finished Nagisafs route, the After Story will open. Then the fanfic follows the normal route, picking up Sanae-sanfs light, and getting to the part where Nagisa gives birth. Unfortunately, Nagisa had died in my fanfic. Then the After Story continues with the story of Tomoya and Ushio reuniting and going through another hard time.
It is the BAD END!
And I mean bad as in I cried for an hour and the whole week I was pretty depressed. I love this story written by Key, and I understand that not all things are always happy, but I felt like I couldnft get on with life without turning this BAD END around. Thatfs where this fanfic comes in. After the BAD END, Ushio dies to the fever and Tomoya gives up his life as well. I couldnft let that happen.
In this fanfic, a new character will be introduced. And almost all the other characters from the high school life will be revisited. Everyone comes together to try and solve the problem through love and friendship.
Now, here are some instructions on how to read it because it may seem a bit confusing to read.
I decided that this fanfic would be told in the perspective of Tomoya and the new character. I felt that the new characterfs perspective could add a lot to that character and to the story. This new character has to be really special for you guys to feel as emotionally attached to as Nagisa. I hope it will.
Also, I am attempting to retain as much of the dialogue style of these visual novels so that everyone would feel familiar with it. The colon by itself represents thoughts of the character or observations and the colon after the name represents dialogue. There will be day changes, scene changes, and character changes throughout the story and an occasional flashback since itfs hard to tell where is a flashback without a visual representation.
For the character changes, I just want to warn you that you may end up being confused in the time when the change happens. Like if one character ends in the evening, the character change may start on the same day in the morning so I tried my best to make it clear. If youfre still confused, just stick with it and donft spoil yourself, I will go into detail about when there are actually time differences when there are character changes. There is also points where both characters are thinking at once. The slash seperates their thoughts and the initial position of their placement when the change happens will be their position when the thoughts happen.
Oh, one more thing if it helps you imagine it better. If you would use Sanaefs voice with a bit higher pitch for the new character, it would be about right. I might go and find a better example but thatfs the best I can think of. And use Tomoyafs voice from the anime.
The fanfic is separated in 16 days. Two days are combined and the epilogue is anything after the last day.
So I hope you enjoy the story that I worked hard on. This made me feel better about the BAD END, so much so that whenever I think of that portion of the After Story after Nagisa dies, I donft fall into a sullen state of depression.
Thank you for reading this.
