Rewriting this Sad Song in Another World from Zero (Re:63)
08 Jan 2022
Katia Managan is trying to escape from a perilous situation! For this reason, she attempts to use whatever is in her power to do so... Only, things don't go exactly as planned.
This is a bit of an experimental idea. Simply put, I had thought for some time, that with people in the Re:Zero fandom giving writing prompts all the time like 'What if Subaru was in X franchise instead?', why not turn it on its head, and replace Subaru? Only, who would really fit into Re:Zero without breaking the entire concept? Well, why not someone else who tried to start their life from zero in another town? Someone who isn't powerful enough to break the whole story, but who has interesting quirks to add?
So, how does this work? Is this a normal fic? Nope!
Instead, I will be taking the Kazerad approach to writing this fic, so 1) update when I want/have some extra time, 2) keep it relatively short and sweet and finally 3) continue by trying to incorporate comments on past chapters into the future!
How does that work? Well, for the most part exactly like Prequel!
You leave a comment, and then if I decide to use the comment, you get a fancy cameo in a future chapter as a voice in Katia's head!

Some time ago, I was told that a certain group of people really wanted a Fembaru smutfic.
Since all of Re:63 started on no greater a cause than just that, I eventually decided 'dang nab it (I think Summaries aren't hidden based on rating, so keeping it PG here), I'm going to write one'.
In the meantime, some other great Fembaru smutfics got written, most notably:
"(I will make) our stars align" by Devaedra: https://archiveofourown.org/works/33644644
And " Black and Violet" by PineappleVsStainlessSteel: https://archiveofourown.org/works/32211928
(Neither of which are directly based on Re:63 to be clear.)
Regardless, I thought I should make good on my one time promise, so finally, for Christmas, I decided to finish writing it.
It ended up slightly shorter than I anticipated, but since it's literally one scene (spoilers?), 8.7k words I think suffices.
In case you're wondering: Yes. Yes this is a Re:63 Extra. Which means, that this is meant to tie into one of the timelines! (Not in terms of loops, but in terms of IFs.)
As to which timeline that is, I'll leave for you to find out on your own!
Season's Greetings to everyone!

Natsuki Subaru, most popular girl in school and musician extraordinaire, dreams of becoming an idol.
However, mere months from graduation, she is spirited away to another world. In this cruel, grueling world where it takes all she has just to survive, will she ever fulfill that dream of hers?
Inspired by Spriteanon's Re:63, be sure to check that out here:

With the approach of the royal selection, and Felt's imminent resignation, there's only two concerns at the forefront of Subaru's mind: Hoping that Felt chooses to remain with the Roswaal estate even after the resignation she had planned since first hearing of her candidacy; and that she, Subaru, can find a way to protect the fragile heart of the sweet, silver-haired girl whose boundless kindness is repaid with nothing but contempt and hate by the world, and who in turn locks herself away in her hopeless studies to impress people that do not deserve her.
This is Arc 3 of a series retelling Re:Zero with a number of divergences. Please see the proper summary at the series's page here: https://archiveofourown.org/series/2264210

Alternate route of Rewriting this Sad Song in Another World from Zero (Re:63). For most information on this fics (since I really don't want to have to update links/info in multiple places, I'm so Slothful, sorry) please see that series' page here: https://archiveofourown.org/series/2264210
The splitting point between the two series occurs at the very end of Arc 3, leading into the first chapters of this series and the main one respectively, which I do not wish to spoil if you haven't read the story up to that point yet, so I'll leave everything else here vague!
The title of this IF series ('The kind of ditty that invokes the spring') is a quote from Cole Porter's absolute classic 'It's De-lovely' from the musical Anything Goes. One of the best recordings of it is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JniqWrnAScM
The soundtrack associated with this route can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLs59D0mZZ6OwVc2NDqq_CIBHTVKmCvz7t

Chastity IF of Re:63
22 Jan 2022
On today's feature presentation, the role of Tappei is played by Spriteanon, featuring SNUser as Editor-kun!
Started on a whim on April 4th, 2021 as a bit of practice, this is a semi-retelling of the story of Re:Zero which does and will diverge within certain limits from the original story itself, incorporating a number of ideas which's disclosure for the most part would serve as nothing but spoiler.
The primary divergence present from the start, is what the whim was based on. A community cried out, as the writer of a "Fembaru" fanfic disappeared, and so was born this story to fill the void. If "Fembaru" is unclear, the initial divergence, is that in this world Natsuki Subaru is in fact a woman. However, one should neither expect the world to be fully switched when it comes to the sexes, nor that Subaru is the only one who is switched. Since again this fanfiction was started to fill a void in a community, said community got a vote on which major characters would switch and which wouldn't. In future, as the story progresses, similar votes may still be held.
