Dietrich von Lohengrin X Shuusei Kagari: Ein Portal zu einem das Herz (A Portal To One’s Heart)

Dietrich von Lohengrin X Shuusei Kagari: Ein Portal zu einem das Herz (A Portal To One’s Heart)

Part 1: Gebrochen Marionettenspieler (Broken Puppet Master)

Disclaimer: Well, this is it. My fourth ever Yaoi Fanfic. This time, things are a little different with the two characters chosen. I do NOT own Dietrich von Lohengrin, Shuusei Kagari, or anything else! They belong to the creators of Trinity Blood and Psycho-Pass respectively. I also do NOT own the song “Broken”, it was made and sung by Lifehouse.

Dietrich von Lohengrin was litterly a wreck, not because of the plan that Rosenkreuz had. The plan they had was ingenious. Enter another world, take it over, then use the stuff their to destroy The Vatican and Albion and take it over, those were simple even for them. However, Dietrich was a wreck for a different reason. One that he had never thought would happen to him.

This whole thing started when they finished the portal technology to enter one of these worlds; but they needed to know if it was worth it before they began their invasion. So Dietrich agreed to go into the world and do a few days of research, periodically giving them the information needed. And for a few days, things were going smooth. Nothing was wrong, he learned about things like a ‘Sibyl System’ and other things; but nothing that was going to give them trouble. And then HE entered the picture. And during that time, things started to change.

On one day that he was doing his research, he met this one person. A guy with Orange hair, black shirt, red tie, and a blue jacket. At first he noticed that he was too busy playing that game that he was interested in; but Dietrich was told to gather anything for research, so he decided that it would not hurt to try and talk to him. So, he walked over to this person and asked if he was waiting for someone. And for awhile, the two of them started to have a conversation.

The next thing that Dietrich knew, he was getting interested in this young man. He told him that his name was Shuusei Kagari, and naturally Dietrich told him his name. And that’s when things started to spiral out of control for Dietrich. When he was not busy doing his research for the world, he was busy hanging out with Shuusei. As they started to hang out more, when neither of them were busy, the more they started to get more attracted to each other.

And that was what made Dietrich a wreck. That these feelings he was having for Shuusei, feelings that may be one thing that he never had, Love.

The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time
I am here still waiting though I still have my doubts
I am damaged at best, like you’ve already figured out

Love. He was afraid of this, he was commonly known as the “Puppet Master”, he was use to controlling the hearts of those around him. This time, it was different. He feels like he was the one that was having his heart being controlled; but not by Contra Mundi or Isaak, by someone or something that he never knew. Because of all this, he felt like he was falling apart. He started to distance himself from the group as much as possible, even avoiding doing other things. Which were starting to worry the group.

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

He went to the bathroom in his quarters and splash some water from the sink. He looked at himself in the mirror. “The Young Man With The Face of an Angel; but The Heart of a Devil turned into an open book of person, huh.” Dietrich said to himself. He knew that things were going south ever since he met Shuusei, and he could not help it. He feels as he could see him in his eyes. And Dietrich was wondering if he was looking for something, something that he has lost in his life.

The broken locks were a warning you got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded, I’m an open book instead
I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
That are looking for a purpose, they’re still looking for life

Dietrich decided that he needed to get some sleep, maybe that will help him focus. Because Tomorrow would be the big day. The day that they would take over the world that, ironically, Shuusei lives in. When this whole thing started, he had no qualms over killing those that stood in his way; but now, he was no longer sure about it. He thought that if he got some sleep, he would be so certain that he would focus on his goal.

What happened next, would really change everything for him.

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain (in the pain), is there healing
In your name (in your name) I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’)
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

Dietrich dreamed of the end of the big event. Where the whole city was in ruins, that everyone was dead and he was laughing his head off, not caring at all about what happened; but then his dream started to change. He heard a very weird gunshot. At first, he did not want to go to it; however, after that same gunshot kept repeating itself. Dietrich decided to follow where that sound was coming from.

As he made some turns through some buildings, he ultimately found the source of the sound; and Dietrich was litterly in tears after what he saw. He saw Shuusei Kagari on the floor; his arm and leg shot; and worse of all, his body was shot all over. Dietrich ran over to the body; picked him up; and started to shake him, asking him if he was okay.

After a few shakes, Shuusei started to cough up some blood. He looks up to see Dietrich, tearing up, scared, and giving a little bit of a smile. Shuusei says, “Dietrich, I knew that this would be my downfall. Would you do one thing for me?” Shuusei then crawls up closer to Dietrich and gives him a kiss on the lips, he tries to hold out for as long as he could; but Shuusei slowly goes limp as death claims his body.

Dietrich was so scared after seeing what he saw, that he tried to shake Shuusei again; however, he did not react this time. Consumed by the grief that he lost someone even though Rosenkreuz had completely accomplished their goal. He let out a very emotional, sad, and tearful scream that slowly echoed throughout his own dream.

I’m hangin’ on another day
Just to see what you will throw my way
And I’m hanging on to the words you say
You said that I will be OK

Once Dietrich woke up from his nightmare, he was litterly in a puddle of sweat. He felt that something was totally off with that dream, it felt like it was real. And that he had no power to change what he saw. He then realized that today was the big event that Rosenkreuz was waiting for, the day when they take over the world on the other side of the portal.

However, Dietrich was now beginning to think that this was a bad idea. And he just realized that maybe, just maybe, that dream was telling him the truth. That Shuusei is going to die, and he might be able to stop it. He gave a arrogant sigh and said to himself, “A sadist like me, given the dream that someone is going to die, and I have to choose to let him die or save him. What a joke.” After getting dressed, he began to walk towards the location that they had prepared to use the portal at.

The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone
I may have lost my way now, haven’t forgotten my way home

As Dietrich began to walk further towards the location, the memories of the dream start to flood his mind. From the happiness of seeing Rosenkreuz win, to the utter sadness of seeing the one person that he met, and maybe fell in love with, dying in his arms. It was all too much for him. As he got closer to the location, he stopped walking.

He kept looking at the stage and started to figure out what he was thinking. If he keeps going to the stage; Rosenkreuz would accomplish their goal of conquering the other world, however he would lose Shuusei forever. Then he put his fingers to his lips, and he remembered that Shuusei kissed him in that dream. He then turned his head around to look back at the hallway, and had a thought. If he did go back and used the portal to save Shuusei, then he could; however, he would be considered a traitor among his own group.

Just then, he remembered what Shuusei said in the dream. He closed his eyes and remembered what he said, “Dietrich, I knew that this would be my downfall. Would you do one thing for me?” Dietrich said to him in a concered tone, “What is it?” Shuusei then got close to his ear and said, “Always listen to your heart and instincts, never listen to what people want you to do.” Dietrich then open his eyes and muttered those same words that Shuusei said to him in the dream, “Always listen to your heart and instincts, never listen to what people want you to do.”

He then smiled, he made his decision.

As Isaak and Cain, waited to see Dietrich. One of the guards said that Dietrich suddenly ran back. They feared the worse, so they ordered his own creations, the Death Hunters, to find and kill him.

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain (In the pain) there is healing
In your name I find meaning

Dietrich knew that he would be considered a traitor when he made this decision; but he did not care. He knew that they would use his own creations to stop; but he did not care. He knew that they would still go through with the plan; but he did not care. There were only three things that he cared about now. Protecting his own life, saving the other world from what was coming, and more importantly, saving Shuusei from his fate of death. Those were the reasons why he decided to run as fast as he could. Those were the very reasons to hold on to.

So I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’),
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

He knew that Shuusei was barely holding on to life, without even knowing it. Dietrich kept running, running towards his quarters. He had to come up with a plan, a plan to save him and the world. Many months before, he was a sadist and a terrorist working for Rosenkreuz trying to rule the world; but now, now he wanted to stop them from doing something that he would regret.

I‘m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’),
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

Because for Dietrich. His new goal, was to save someone from Death.

Part 2: Ein Anderer Spielzeugsoldaten (A Different Toy Soldier)

Disclaimer: Here we are, my Fifth ever Yaoi Fanfic; and my Second Part to the Dietrich von Lohengrin X Shuusei Kagari story. This part takes place IMMEDIEATLY after “Gebrochen Marionettenspieler (Broken Puppet Master)”. I do NOT own Dietrich von Lohengrin, Isaak Ferdinand von Kampfer, Cain Nightroad, Death Hunters, Sister Esther Blanchett, or Shuusei Kagari! They all belong to the creator/s of Trinity Blood and Psycho-Pass! I also do NOT own the song “Toy Soldiers”! That was made and sung by Martika.

Dietrich made it to his quarters, slammed and locked the door. He knew that this was not going to keep the Death Hunters or the rest of the Order from breaking his door down and killing him for not going through with the plan to take over the other world. Dietrich was out of breath when he got the door closed; but he knew that it would only be a matter of time before they got him.

Step by step
Heart to heart

Dietrich knew what he needed to do.With him being an enemy within Rosenkreuz, there was only one thing he could do, Escape. To that end, he grabbed his backpack and a suitcase. Then he started to throw all of his clothes and other things inside both. Normally he would never think about escaping the Order; however, things were different. And Dietrich knew that it involved one thing, Love.

However, this was not love for Sister Esther Blanchett; that was more of a mild obssession, one that was overshadowed by a different kind of love. He kept thinking to himself, ‘Why did I mislead him when we first met?’ His thoughts went back to the first time he met the young man that changed everything for him, Shuusei Kagari.

When they first met, Dietrich had to lie to keep his cover a secret. So he told Shuusei that he was writing an article about the city; but now that things have changed and so has his heart, he was wishing that he had told the truth about himself. It was almost like he invited Shuusei to enter his life, and boy did he enter it in more ways than even he could have known.

It was too late now; however, he was not going to let something like that stop him. He had to remember what he was doing, and he said it to himself, “Protect yourself, the other world, and Shuusei.” He kept repeating that to himself as he grab as much stuff as he could.

It wasn’t my intention to mislead you
It never should have been this way
What can I say?
It’s true, I did extend the invitation
I never knew how long you’d stay

Once he was finished packing, he placed a few strange looking packs in certain parts of his room. “Just in case, I do not want them to EVER get any bright ideas.” That’s what Dietrich said to himself, that was when he heard noises at his door. He knew that they were standing there, just waiting for him to come out of there and kill him.

He said to himself, “Their not gonna take me alive. If I die, he dies. And right now, I do not feel like dying. For the first time in my life, I want to live for him.” Determined to do whatever it takes, Dietrich came up with a plan.

And with that, he gave himself a little smirk. He knew where he had to go.

When you hear temptation call
It’s your heart that takes, takes the fall
(Won’t you come out and play with me?)

The Death Hunters, Cain Nightroad, and Issak Ferdinand von Kampfer all made their way to Dietrich’s Quarters, only to notice that the door was locked. Cain gave the Death Hunters the order to break down the door or wait until Dietrich opens it, before they kill him; because in their minds, they think that The Vatican got to Dietrich which would explain his sudden strange behavior that they saw.

As the Death Hunters got closer and closer to the door, they suddenly heard the door unlock. They got ready to prepare for Dietrich to explain himself for his sudden change in attitude. They waited and waited; but the door did not open. Isaak said to the Death Hunters, “On Three, you break down the door.” The Death Hunters get in position as Isaak gave the countdown, “One… Two…”

But just before Isaak could give the “Three”, the door flew towards the Death Hunters very hard; and Cain and Isaak saw the reason why. Dietrich threw his own weight to the door, which slammed it very hard enough to hit the Death Hunters. As all three stood there, Cain and Isaak noticed the backpack and suitcase that Dietrich had; but before they could say anything, Dietrich simply said, “Three!” And then he ran as fast as he could towards his new destination.

Dietrich continued his running, being chased by Death Hunters throughout the entire complex. He jumped, slide, rammed, and did whatever he could to get to where he wanted to go. And then he saw his destination, an elevator. The Death Hunters were still on his trail; but that did not matter to Dietrich, survival was his only thought. The survival of himself, a world that his group wanted to destroy, and the one person that he was beginning to fall in love with.

As the Death Hunters got closer, he slide into the elevator and closed the doors as fast as he could. When Isaak and Cain got close, they figured that he was either going for the garage or the rooftop. So Isaak and Cain split the forces and each led them to their different destinations.

When Dietrich heard that they were gone, he pushed the button on the elevator. He smirked to himself and said, “They must be more stupid than they think. I’m not THAT stupid to steal a vehicle. They do not know what my REAL destination is.” With that, Dietrich was sure that he could get to his destination before Isaak and Cain could figure out where he was really going to.

Bit by bit
Torn apart
We never win
But the battle wages on
For toy soldiers

Dietrich had some time in the elevator before it reached its destination, so he had a moment to reflect on his life so far; and for what he went through from his past to now, it made his head spin. He killed his parents because of his unusal intelligence and his evil nature; he manipulated many people when he was in the Order, including Esther; he was always known for his extreme sadism; and he mostly saw the world and its people as playthings. He knew that all those things were true; but now, things were different.

Now here he was, a traitor within Rosenkreuz; hiding in an elevator with a briefcase and a backpack; looking to reach his destination; and he knew the reason why, he was beginning to fall in love with Shuusei Kagari. And it all goes back to one thing that changed his thoughts about taking over the other world, the dream.

That dream he had that Rosenkreuz had accomplish conquering the other world; but then Dietrich had seen Shuusei dying in his arms; Shuusei told him to listen to his heart and his instincts and to ignore what everyone else said. Then Shuusei kissed him and then he passed away, which made Dietrich yell out an emotional scream.



It’s getting hard to wake up in the morning
My head is spinning constantly
How can it be?
How could I be so blind to this addiction?
If I don’t stop, the next one’s gonna be me

As the elevator came to a stop, he remembered those words; and those words, along with Shuusei himself, litterly changed him. But now he needed to focus on his main target, his destination. He figured that Isaak and Cain were waiting at the two locations for him, so he decided to do a little trolling.

He pushed two buttons on the elevator before heading out. One for the Garage, the other for the rooftop; he wanted to mess with them before they find out what was going on. Once he pressed those buttons, he got his backpack and briefcase and exited the elevator before it closed on him.

Only emptiness remains
It replaces all, all the pain
(Won’t you come out and play with me?)

As the elevator headed up, Dietrich went further down the hallway, making sure that he did not get caught by any other Death Hunters along the way. As soon as he got cleared of the hallway, he heard some gunshots. He thought to himself, “Must be the team at the garage. Better hurry it up.” With that, he moved faster to his destination.

Step by step
Heart to heart

After some time, he finally made it to his destination: The room where the portal to the other world was being held. Dietrich then set his backpack and briefcase down, and got himself ready to begin what he planned to do, save Shuusei Kagari from his fate of Death. However, he did not know where and when it would happen. So, he decided to take a look at some of the footage that was recorded while he was away to see if anything can help him.

Bit by bit

But the battle wages on
For toy soldiers

After some time, Dietrich found what he could of Shuusei Kagari from some of what the two of them did before Dietrich had to return to his world to prepare for the invasion. Those memories took him back to when he actually had some fun. He did not need to worry about researching about the very world that he was in or manipulating someone, this was Dietrich just being normal for a change. He then fast forward the footage to get some more information of Shuusei’s actions.

And then, he saw the footage that he did want to see. And it was worse than what he saw in the dream.

We never win

Shuusei was standing in a white room with the already dead body of another person. A strange gun that changed its form right before him; then before the shot was fired, Shuusei said, “Oh, give me a break…This bites.” Then as the shot was about to be fired, he give a smirking smile, and then the shot was fired. Shuusei Kagari was dead.

Dietrich was litterly in shock with what he just saw. The one person that changed his life, was gone in the blink of an eye. He just could not help himself; screw it if Isaak and Cain heard him, he needed to let out his emotion. With tears in his eyes, Dietrich gave one big emotional and very loud scream that echoed throughtout the entire complex.

Isaak and Cain heard that very loud scream, and both of them realized where Dietrich really was. They both ran as fast as they could to stop and kill Dietrich; realizing that he had used their own knowledge of where he would have gone to conceal where he actually went.

Only emptiness remains
It replaces all, all the pain
(Won’t you come out and play with me?)

Dietrich just stood there, letting his tears and emotions flow through his body. That was even more painful than the dream he had. This was all the evidence he needed, the proof that he wanted. He loves Shuusei Kagari; and to see him die, was what no person wanted to see happen to their lover. And here was Dietrich von Lohengrin, litterly standing there watching the person he now loves, die a very painful death.

As he was still letting his emotions come together, he heard footsteps. “Dammit, my scream must have brought them here!” With tears still in his eyes, he blocked the door with a heavy bookcase. Mostly to stall them; but he knew that it would not hold the Death Hunters forever. He had to come up with a better plan, and he came up with one.

To save his lover from what would come through his world, Dietrich will destroy the link to their worlds.

He opened the panel and placed his final pack inside the machine, then he closed the door. And he was getting ready to do it, when he realized that while it would stop the Order from heading into the other world; it would doom both of them to Death! The Death Hunters, Isaak, and Cain all arrived at the Portal Room door, Isaak tried to push the door open; only to notice that it would not budge.

Dietrich had to figure out a better way to solve the problem that would allow them both to leave alive. His thoughts came to the obvious conclusion, and even he did not like the answer; mostly because he did want to stay in his own world. But the more the Death Hunters try to bust down the door; he figured that even if he did find a way to return, he would be a marked man with Rosenkreuz. Constantly on the run, how would he survive?

So he decided, he said to himself, “Screw it! If I can not survive being a constant target for Rosenkreuz, then I might as well stay in my lover’s world and destroy the link from there!”

Seeing that there was no choice in the matter, Dietrich went back to the machine and decided to set the portal to the destination. It was originally set to a park in that world, which would serve as a staging point; but Dietrich knew what he was going to do, so he changed the destination to the location that Shuusei would be killed at.

Isaak and Cain were getting more furious at the Death Hunters not being able to get the through the door. They wanted to complete the goal without Dietrich; but now he’s become a threat that they need to eliminate. Suddenly, they heard the portal activate. Now they had to eliminate Dietrich before he warned someone of what was going to happen; however they really had no idea on what Dietrich was REALLY going to do.

Dietrich managed to get the portal set to its target destination. He then put his backpack back on and picked up his suitcase, then he heard more furious slams at the door. He said to himself, “They must be getting more and more desperate, well it’s too late for them to stop me. Besides, if they think I’m gonna tell someone on the other side what’s coming their way; then they will never see it coming.”

He got close to the portal, letting all his thoughts come together. When he entered that world the first time, he was just a terrorist aiding in a potential invasion; now returning to that world, this time to stop the invasion. But his real purpose was more personal. He was in love with Shuusei Kagari, and he was willing to throw everything away to save him. Even his life within Rosenkreuz.

“Listen to my heart and my instincts; ignore everything they said.” Those were the last words that Dietrich said to himself.

And with a smile on his face, Dietrich stepped into the portal. To confront his emotions and save his lover.

Part 3: Savin’ Me

Disclaimer: This is it! The third, but maybe not final, part to the Dietrich von Lohengrin X Shuusei Kagari fanfic! Just like the previous fanfic, this story immediately follows “Ein Anderer Spielzeugsoldaten (A Different Toy Soldier)”. But now this is set within Shuusei Kagari’s Death from Episode 16 of Psycho-Pass, so mild Spoiler Warning.

I do NOT own Shuusei Kagari, Guseong, Kasei, Dietrich von Lohengrin, Isaak Ferdinand von Kampfer, Cain Nightroad, or the Death Hunters! They belong to the creator/s of Psycho-Pass and Trinity Blood respectively. I also do NOT own the song “Savin’ Me”! It was made and sung by Nickelback.

In the basement of the Health and Welfare Ministry’s Nona Tower facility, where the Sibyl System is located, Shuusei Kagari walks to the center of the facility. His arm and leg were shot in an encounter earlier with Guseong, who was ordered to destroy the Sybil System. Luckily Shuusei was able to get there, even with him limping all the way there. He was also a little concern that he suddenly lost his connection with the network; but he figured that if he caught Guseong, he would be reconnected once he got back to the surface.

As he got closer to the center of the facility, he sees Guseong there; but he was not destroying the place as he was ordered to, he had his cell phone out for some reason. As Shuusei came into the area, he noticed his reaction to what he was seeing. So Shuusei asks, “What the hell is this?!” To which Guseong replied, “This is… the true form of the Sibyl System!” Shuusei looked around at what Guseong was talking about. Then he continued, saying, “We don’t even HAVE to destroy this. If we make this public, it’ll be the end of this country. And this time, real riots will occur.”

Shuusei was looking at what he was seeing with complete shock; but then he heard a sound coming from behind them. Guseong continued, saying, “No one will be able to stop them!” While he was too busy focusing on what was in front of him, Shuusei noticed that a Dominator was pointed right at Guseong. He then heard it say, “Target’s Threat Judgment has been updated. Enforcement mode is Lethal Eliminator.” Then the Dominator changed into it’s Eliminator form, then it said, “Aim carefully and eliminate the target.”

Apparantly, Guseong did notice the intruder behind them. Because he pulled out his own gun and aimed it at the person, all while Shuusei watched. Then the two fired their guns. Both shots hit the center, then continued on their respective paths. The strange smoke hits the intruder; but the intruder’s Dominator laser hits Guseong in the head, which causes it to expand and explode, killing him with some of his blood hitting Shuusei in the process.

Prison gates won’t open up for me
On these hands and knees I’m crawlin’
Oh, I reach for you

Shuusei was in complete shock with what he saw that he took another look at the intruder, and what he saw was shocking. The person that he saw was the Chief of the Bureau, Joshu Kasei; however, she was hit by that weird smoke that Guesong fired from his gun. As she was getting up, Shuusei simply said, “Ch-Chief?!” He was completely confused as to why the Chief was here and why she killed Guseong; but what he saw next really shocked him.

As she got back up, he noticed that the center of her eyes were looking weird and part of her face was torn apart, almost by acid, to reveal a sort of robotic exoskeleton. He then came to the startling revelation. This was a cyborg, he notices this more as he sees more of this exoskeleton with a strange Blue-Greenish hue flowing throughout. The only words that Shuusei could say was “You are…”, as he noticed that the cyborg was slowly and jerkishly raising its Dominator and pointed at Shuusei.

Once the cyborg pointed the Dominator at Shuusei, it said, “Enforcement mode is Non-Lethal Paralyzer. Aim calmly… and bring… the…” It could not finish the rest of its sequence, because the cyborg overrides the sequence to alter the gun completely. Shuusei’s face was that of shock, and he realized what this cyborg was going to do. It was not going to paralyze him; it was going to kill him, just like Guseong.

As Shuusei sees the unflinching cyborg keep the altered Dominator pointed at him, Shuusei said, “Oh, give me a break… This bites.” And the cyborg takes one more moment to stare at Shuusei before pulling the trigger. The only thing that Shuusei Kagari could do was to stare and give a confident and cocky smirk. Then his last thought came into his mind, that of the young man that he met some time ago. Dietrich von Lohengrin. He wondered what became of him.

And in that moment, everything changed.

Well I’m terrified of these four walls
These iron bars can’t hold my soul in
All I need is you
Come please I’m callin’
And all I scream for you
Hurry I’m fallin’, I’m fallin’

As the cyborg was getting ready to fire the Dominator, a strange circle appeared behind it. Shuusei’s look changed from a confident smirk to that of confusion. He was wondering what was going on. And the cyborg did not know what was going on, as it still had its eyes directed at Shuusei with the Dominator pointed at him.

Then he heard a voice coming from the portal; it sounded familiar to Shuusei. It said, “Shuusei, DUCK!” Then a suitcase come out of the portal and hit the cyborg on the side of its head, just as it fired the Dominator. Following the voice’s advice, Shuusei ducked and the beam missed him entirely; hitting one of the walls of the room. The cyborg was slammed to the wall of the room due to the force of the suitcase, knocking it out of commission for some time.

After Shuusei got up from his near death experience, he finally got to see someone come out of the portal. Someone he never thought he would see again. He slowly approached him and said, “Dietrich? Dietrich von Lohengrin?!”

Show me what it’s like
To be the last one standing
And teach me wrong from right
And I’ll show you what I can be
And say it for me
Say it to me
And I’ll leave this life behind me
Say it if it’s worth saving me

Shuusei was surprised, to say the least. It was Dietrich von Lohengrin; however, he was dressed differently than the last time he saw him. He was dressed in a white shirt with a black jacket; black shoes; black pants; and a black tie. He also had a backpack and the suitcase that he used to save him. And he noticed that Dietrich had tears in his eyes, almost like something had happened to him. Shuusei asked, “What’s wrong?”

Then Dietrich said, “I.. I… I saw your death.” That took Shuusei completely off guard, Dietrich saw that he was going to die? But from what he saw with what the cyborg was doing, he could understand that Dietrich was telling the truth. However, what Dietrich said next would be something that he did not think would happen. Dietrich said, “In the world that I live in, I’m actually…a terrorist.” He said that last word and turned his gaze away from Shuusei.

Heaven’s gates won’t open up for me
With these broken wings I’m fallin’
And all I see is you

Dietrich was a terrorist? That was shocking from his mouth. To think that he became friends, with a terrorist. He was going to do something about it, until Dietrich said, “I know what your feeling Shuusei, your feeling that I betrayed you. You think that I sold you out for the goal that my group wanted; that was the case, at first.”

Shuusei was surprised by this; then Dietrich continued, “My goal for the group was to gather intel on this world, so that Rosenkreuz would take it over; then we would use the resources here to further our goal in our world for World Domination. That was our goal, until I hit an unexpected complication.” Shuusei then asked, “An unexpected complication? What unexpected complication are you talking about?” To which Dietrich answered, “I fell in love…with you.”

Now Shuusei was really taken off guard by this. A terrorist fell in love, with him? He was about to ask him more about this, when suddenly a freaky looking creature came through the portal. At first Shuusei did not know what to make of this; but then the creature began to attack Dietrich for some reason that. Shuusei looked at what was happening, and had to decide what to do.

Then he rammed himself into the very creature that attacked him, and threw him back through the portal. Once that was done, Shuusei extended his hand out to Dietrich. Dietrich took the hand up and said, “Sorry about all this.” Then Shuusei said, “It’s all right, I also have a secret of my own. I’m an Enforcer, WAS an Enforcer for the Public Safety Bureau’s Criminal Investigation Division Unit One; now, thanks to what would have happened to me earlier, I’m no longer part of the team.”

Now Dietrich was surprised, a terrorist and an enforcer. Both now no longer part of the respective teams in one way or another, each now targeted for death. What can they do? “BTW Dietrich, what was that thing?” Shuusei asked, Dietrich answered, “A Death Hunter, it’s complicated; but to put it in simple terms, I created it.”

These city walls ain’t got no love for me
I’m on the ledge of the eighteenth story
And all I scream for you
Come please I’m callin’

As if things could not get any more hectic for the two of them, a whole army of Death Hunters start to come through the portal. Shuusei did not know what to do, so Dietrich grabbed Shuusei and they both jumped from the platform and did there best to hide from them.

And all I need from you
Hurry I’m fallin’, I’m fallin’

As the Death Hunters did their best to find those two, Dietrich decided to help treat Shuusei’s two major wounds. As he treated the wounds, Shuusei asked, “How did you know that I was going to die?” So Dietrich told him all about the dream, even the one thing that Shuusei never expect, “I KISSED YOU?!” Dietrich then covered Shuusei’s mouth with his hand, fortunately no Death Hunter found them.

Dietrich removed his hand and said, “It’s hard to believe; but it is true.” Then he told him all about what happened after the dream, including how he had to make the tough decision. Then Shuusei said, “I really made you change everything you had know?” Dietrich said, “Yes. At first, it made me litterly a wreck and my associates saw me more as a threat; but now, I do not care what happens to me now. As long as I am with you.” Shuusei saw that Dietrich was more emotional and determined to end his old life and start over with him.

Show me what it’s like
To be the last one standing
And teach me wrong from right
And I’ll show you what I can be
And say it for me
Say it to me
And I’ll leave this life behind me
Say it if it’s worth saving me

Hurry I’m fallin’

Just then the Death Hunters finally found their location and they started to run back to the location of the portal. And Death Hunters were waiting for them, they turned around to see that they were surrounded by Death Hunters from all sides. They were trapped.

Dietrich and Shuusei looked at each other. Dietrich just looked at him and just looked at all of them. Shuusei did the same; he then nodded getting the idea of what Dietrich was trying to tell him without telling him. Then Dietrich also nodded, to confirm the same thing that they were both thinking.

And all I need is you
Come please I’m callin’
And all I scream for you
Hurry I’m fallin’, I’m fallin’, I’m fallin’

Suddenly, Dietrich and Shuusei started to fight together against the many Death Hunters. Punching, kicking, and throwing them through the portal. Their goal was to send them back into the portal; no matter how many they sent through, the two of them sent them back to the other side.

Isaak and Cain watched as they see that the Death Hunters were being sent back to their side, defeated. They see that Dietrich was fighting them alongside a young orange-haired man. They did not know who he was, nor did they care. Isaak decided that enough was enough and he decided to head in.

Shuusei saw through the portal and said, “Dietrich, I think one of your friends is looking to come through!” Dietrich saw this and said to Shuusei, “I already see it.” He then said to himself, “It seems that it’s time for me to show him my decision.” He then pulled out from his jacket pocket, a remote. Shuusei said, “What are you going to do, you can not blow this place up!” Dietrich then said, “Who said I was blowing this place up?”

Show me what it’s like
To be the last one standing
And teach me wrong from right
And I’ll show you what I can be
And say it for me
Say it to me
And I’ll leave this life behind me
Say it if it’s worth saving me

Hurry I’m fallin’

Dietrich aimed the device at the portal. As Isaak was getting closer to the console, Dietrich simply said one word to both Isaak and Cain, “Goodbye.” Then he pressed the button.

Back in his old quarters, the packs that Dietrich placed earlier started to blow up and destroying all of his research, he wanted to make sure that no one would ever use his research to try and find him. And in the Portal Room, the pack that was inside the console also blew up; this one caused the entire console to blow up and throw Isaak to the wall, knocking him out.

With the console destroyed, the Portal started to close. As the portal began to close, all Cain Nightroad had to do was see Dietrich disappear from the view of the portal. And the last image he saw was Dietrich and Shuusei standing side by side, not saying anything to them. And then with that, the portal was closed; never to be opened again.

Say it for me
Say it to me
And I’ll leave this life behind me
Say it if it’s worth saving me

Dietrich made the right decision; but it came at a high price. Now he can no longer return to his old home and his old life. He turned around to Shuusei, to be greated by an embrace from him! Dietrich said, “What the…?” Shuusei said, “I can not believe you were willing to destroy the link to save us.” Then Dietrich said, “Maybe so; but you know what that means for me.” Shuusei then decided to give Dietrich a kiss; a real kiss this time. And he said to him, “You knew the risk, it should not matter if we have each other.”

With that, Dietrich returned the kiss. He knew that he was right. He wanted to be with with Shuusei; and if destroying the link to his old world was what he needed to do, then so be it. Dietrich then said, “A former terrorist and a former Enforcer, how are we going to solve the problem of your former allies?” Shuusei smiled at him and said, “We’ll deal with that when time comes. For now, how about we get out of here?”

Dietrich smiled and picked Shuusei up and carried him out of Nona Tower, and away from his two allies. To them, it would appear as Shuusei was missing; but neither of them mind. They would both begin their new lives away from their former lives. As the sun rises when the two of them come out, they both look at each other. Dietrich said with a smile, “Shuusei Kagari, I love you.” Shuusei returned the smile and said, “Dietrich von Lohengrin, I love you.”

With that, Dietrich carries Shuusei and the two of them begin their new lives together.
