Trivial Things - Summary

Edit: I changed the title because I think this is going to get more serious as it goes on, and the other title was something I came up with in a rush. The title now is actually the name of a Vocaloid song I like.

A new story. Don't worry, I'll continue with the others, but I had this idea and it was just like....yes. It's a Skulduggery Pleasant and Shugo Chara cross fiction. Don't worry if you haven't watched the anime Shugo Chara, you can still read the story. All you really need to know is that chara's are little chibi people that hatch out of your 'hearts egg' and represent your 'true self'. And the Humpty Lock and the Dumpty Key are some magical things that go together (I still don't know what they're actually for). Ok? Ok. Begin summary....NOW.


Darq isn't really your average middle school girl. She and her best friend Alice - more commonly known as Ice - have the perfect personalities for each other. Both are hyper, spastic, and have questionable sanity. And they adore the Skulduggery Pleasant series. Re-reading the books and discussing them is a favorite pass time of theirs. Closely followed by making fun of Shugo Chara! characters.

But what if, during an evacuation drill at their school one day, Darq and Ice are left behind? What if the characters from the Skulduggery books, primarily the bad guys, seem to be popping up all over the school? What if they find the magical Humpty Lock and Dumpty key from Shugo Chara!? And what if there are rabbits involved?

Too bad those aren't 'what if's'. Too bad Darq and Ice really are locked in their huge, creepy school with a bunch of lunatic killers and an entire army of evil rabbits. Armed with only a frying pan, rice paddle that's actually a canoe paddle, the slim hope of breaking out, absolutely no plan, and their knowledge of the world of Skulduggery, what do Darq and Ice do?

They blame the bunnies.


This is a horrible summary but meh. The story will be better. The original idea for this was generated by Mar talking about rabid rabbits during a writing club yesterday after school. I was looking through Mortal Coil, and the word 'rabbits' made me think of Scapegrace with an army of bunnies at his command. And thus, this story was born. Darq and Ice are two of my OC's, but Ice represents Mar and Darq represents me. 


  1. WOW! This is GREAT Thalia! I love it! Great OC's in Darq and Ice!

  2. Thanks Kallista!

    (I just realized that I wrote "slime hope" instead of "slim hope" asdfghjkl *goes back and fixes it*)

    The names Darq and Ice came to me earlier when I was sitting in my algebra class, graphing an equation xD

  3. KALLISTA! Do you want to be in it? Darq and Ice need someone to help them get out of the school because, for some reason yet unknown (probably magic), the windows won't break open and the doors are locked because of the evacuation drill.

  4. OoooooooOOOOOOOOooooh! YES! I WOULD LOVE TO BE IN IT!!!

    Thanks Thalia!


  5. No problem! ^^ I'm glad you want to be in it. You'll come in around part two or three, depending on how long the parts are.

  6. Nyx - Hehehehehe

    Skyril - Thanks!
