Star Ocean 2: The Odd Guys; an
independent fic (Trust me, the stories are better than the
by Duran the Warrior (Of "A Night Out" fame)
Well, to start off, this is my first Star Ocean 2
fanfic. I have written some Seiken 3 fics, but one is on the web
right now. But enough about the other fics; to get the
"Seiken series, e-mail me @ DivineTuna@aol.com. The stars of
this are Leon and Ashton, and was influenced by playing the game
and the "Leon's Crush" PA in fun city.
<Leon and Ashton are talking about stuff like the ten wise men
they just beaten a few months ago. >
Leon: Odd, why aren't you laughing or bragging like I do?
Ashton:It isn't me. Tell me again about that thing at Fun City
Leon: Why is that such a big deal?
Ashton:I may not be a big genius like you, but I'd figure that
we'd have better stuff to do than be in this bar.
Leon: All right, all right, is this what you want to hear, that I
gots the hots for Celine.
Ashton: You know what: this is funny! You said "you gots the
hots" <Laughs> for Celine <Falls over laughing>
Oh man that is just funny! <Continues laughing>
Leon: Speak for yourself, I know you gots the hots for that hyper
girl. That sounds as odd as me "liking" a woman almost
twice my age.
Ashton: <Stops laughing> I've just thought of something;
let's team up for that we can win in our quest for love!
Leon:..........<Smacks Ashton across the face with his book of
Chaos then starts laughing> Good idea, but you can't expect to
succeed saying stupid stuff like that!
Ashton:I think we should get some help from that Bowman guy.
Leon: Why that moron?
Ashton: Because for one he'd help and second, he's married!
Leon: As much as I'd hate to say this but this is good logic.
>Linga, at Bowman's house
Ashton: We'd need your help with a slight matter.
Bowman: What would that be exactly?
Ashton: Now it's my turn to hit you with something <Takes his
glove and smacks Leon across the face>
Leon: Hey, old man, do you know Celine Jules by chance?
Bowman: Heh heh, I was about to marry her once. And since my wife
is out I'll start telling you the story. <Tells it> Still
the best way to succeed is be yourself while being heroic. Want
to hear an interesting story about Noel?
Ashton: Why not.
Bowman: It's just that recently Noel has borrowed Claude's
trumpet, and that means he's gonna do something.
Leon: I heard how Chisato rejected him cold.
Ashton: What use does he have summoning the Iseria Queen?
Leon: Ashton, are you stupid or something? She'll kill him! I saw
the hard time you, Big siblings Claude, Rena, and Precis had with
Ashton: Precis...<Falls over>
Bowman: Does he always do this?
Leon: Yes, he does...
<Noel bursts in>
Noel: Guess what guys!
Leon, faking excitement: What?
Noel: Meet my new girlfriend, Isabelle!
<As the Iseria Queen walks in>
Leon: No way, this is nuts, and this is from a 12-year old who
likes a 23-year old!
Isabelle: I'm not going to kill you all. It's odd seeing him on
the field, and I was about to kill him, but then instead of
attacking me, he asked me out. Then we talked and convinced me
not to take revenge on some of his friends for killing me
<Ashton wakes up, blood running from his nose>
Ashton: It's nice that you got a...OH TRIA!
Isabelle: What? It's not like I'm going to kill you.
Leon: Yeah Ashton! Noel convinced her not to!
Noel: Pardon me; I just came here to say that everyone else is
visiting tomorrow for a reunion. I just can't wait to tell them
the news. Well, We have to be going now. <They leave>
Bowman: That was interesting. Why not Snooze here for the night!
<They both fall asleep; later on there is some talking>
Nineh: How come you have to help everybody?
Bowman: Honey, it's just that they needed it, and I guess
tomorrow they'll go on their own, Honey what are you reading?
Nineh: A collection of stories about this world by this guy who
calls himself Duran the Warrior. Kevin and Riesz really do make a
Bowman, breaking 3rd wall: (Isn't he the guy that is writing
>The Neumann house, next day
Rena: Hello Mr. Neumann, how are you today?
Mr. Neumann: Fine, but my daughter has been acting nuttier than
usual. She's always thinking of this Ashton guy.
<Precis comes in>
Precis: Hey, Claude, Rena! How do I get Ashton to notice me?
Claude, sarcastically: Why not wear a barrel.
Precis: Ok, bye!
Rena: Claude, what you do that for?
Claude: I just made a joke, and she actually believed me.
Rena: What else did I expect when I married you.
Mr. Neumann: Okay...
<End of scene>
Celine: It is so nice reading up on stuff in the library. (Why
isn't Leon here; I'd thought that the little darling would be
here reading like he always does.)
<She finishes reading and leaves; when a bandit grabs her>
Bandit: Got ya now, witch! You can't do anything now. Now give
all of your money or else I'll have to do some slicing <Moves
into an alley>
<Footsteps are heard>
????: Demon of darkness I summon you to do my bidding, and that
is to bite the guy's head off!
Demon: Yes sir! <Goes after the bandit from behind>
Bandit: HAHA...<Gets cut off as the demon bites his head off,
anime-style; then leaves, saying "tastes like
Leon: Once again Leon, super genius and super mage saves the day!
Celine: Leon darling, why did you have to do that for? I know you
were trying to save me, but my clothes are dirty with the guy's
Leon: Sorry about that. Well, there goes that plan, I try to be
heroic and I end up messing up her clothes.
Celine: Darling, would you know where a washing place is?
Leon: I know! I've been working on a washing machine and Dryer
that Big brother Claude told me about! (I wonder how Ashton's
Ashton: (How am I suppose to be heroic? I could really look at a
barrel right now.) <Sees a Barrel with arms and legs> Whoa!
A walking barrel, I've got to see this! <Walks over to it>
Gyoro: (The idiot, that's the girl he likes.)
Ururun: (I think she is wearing a bikini; you know what this
Gyoro: (Either nosebleed time or time for Ashton to finally grow
Precis: Like what you see, Ashy boy?
Ashton: In fact yes. I think now I'd rather look at you than a
Gyoro: (Well; that's a first)
Ururun: (I think if she popped up first, Things would have been
sped up, instead, he looked at the barrel and didn't noticed
Precis, out of the barrel: Come on, I know that we much rather
talk now and have you look at me in a bikini, but we have the
reunion to go to.
<They go to her house, while Bowman looks on>
Bowman: (It's nice that one of them has succeeded, that and I got
to check out a cute girl.)
Soldier: Here is the washing machine you wanted, Master Leon.
Leon: Good, now leave, I've got company.
Soldier: Yes sir (I think he has a girl in the room.)
Celine, from the bathroom: Darling, who was that?
Leon: A Soldier who dropped off the washing machine. Um... Could
I ask you something.
Celine: Sure darling, just as long as it isn't about coming in
the bathroom right now.
Leon: (Okay) Doyouwannagooutwithme?
Celine: I was thinking about it, since you told me that you liked
me, and I figured darling, why not? All the normal relationships
I'd have failed, so yes.
Leon: Oh look the clothes are done.
<a few moments later>
Celine: Why do you like me?
Leon: Um... You're good with magic, I like that high-up
personality; that and you look good as well.
Celine: Darling, that's the first time that someone actually
liked what some would call 'stuck-up'.
Leon: Oh, look at the time! We've got to go!
>The Neumann House
Claude: So Dias, so that what happened.
Rena: I'm really happy that you found somebody, Dias.
Dias: Well; I guess opposites attract, since Chisato isn't like
me at all.
Chisato: I've heard some odd things, like a barrel over bikini
outfit, or that Noel using that trumpet the Claude loaned to him
to summon something, some real crazy stuff.
<A loud crashing sound is heard>
Mr. Neumann: Another meteorite, I'll go look at it <leaves>
Claude: I think some really crazy stuff will happen.
<Bowman comes in>
Bowman: Anyone heard about Leon?
Rena: No; though I think I saw a soldier from Lacour bring a type
of machine over to the inn.
Bowman: I met Noel's new girlfriend; for some reason Ashton
freaked when he met her; the name was something like Isabelle.
<Leon and Celine came in>
Leon: Hello everybody.
Celine: Hello Darlings.
Bowman: I guess they both succeeded then.
Dias: What are you getting at?
Bowman: Ashton and Leon came to me for help, and I helped them
with matters of the heart. Anyone heard of this bandit that is
outside the library, he robbed several scholars this month.
Leon: I think he won't be doing that anymore.
Claude: What makes you say that?
Leon: He can't rob when he has his head bitten off by a demon.
Rena: Leon, did you summon a demon to bite his head off?
Leon: Yes, how else was I suppose to save Celine in a heroic and
Celine: Still, that was pretty messy; but Leon's washing machine
<Ashton and Precis come in>
Precis: I would have come in earlier, but I don't think the
outfit I was wearing was inappropriate.
Ashton: Great idea, Claude.
Claude: So far this is nuts; a boy dating a woman, Ashton dating
a girl that wore a barrel. Ok; what else is next?
<Mr. Neumann comes in>
Mr. Neumann: Hey I found some guests, Ernest Raviede and Opera
Vectra. Their ship crashed.
Ernest: We were going somewhere, but we had a slight argument and
the ship wasn't on autopilot.
Opera: It's just that he seems to always avoid me, and I'm
getting sick and tired of it.
Ernest: Well; it isn't my fault that you always follow me.
Claude: (OK, this has gone into insane territory. I guess
something truly insane will happen next.)
<Noel and his girlfriend come>
Noel: Meet my girlfriend Isabelle
Claude, Rena, and Precis: THE ISIERA QUEEN! PLEASE DON'T KILL US!
Ashton: Don't worry, I met her today, and she isn't all that bad
of a person.
Isabelle: OK; I guess this should make things well <Proceeds
to dump out a lot of Angel armbands, Levantines, and holy sword
farewells.> That way now you won't have to go after me again,
and here's a game shark.
Claude: What's that for?
Isabelle: Simple; so that you won't have reason to go after me
Claude: I must say this has been one of the oddest days in my
life, and I wound up really far way from the planet I was on.
Bowman: I guess today was a good day for everybody. <Starts
reading the manga version of the "Seiken" series>
(I'm glad I've got this, since there are serious hot babes in
Well; note about the Iseria Queen, she looks like a six-winged
angel in a black dress; but I guess SO2 fans know this well.
