The Legend of Sun Knight V7Prologue: Insanity (April Fools version)

The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 7: Ending the Demon King, Part One

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Prologue: Insanity – translated by lucathia

The holy light from Resurrection nearly blinded them, but no one was willing to blink at all, afraid that they would miss the slightest twitch from the man lying on top of the conference table.

The Pope’s face grew ashen as he continued to release more holy light, but no one was paying him any attention. Not even the Pope was attending to his own condition.

Everyone had their eyes trained on the fallen leader of the Twelve Holy Knights — Grisia Sun.

His white hair was spread across the table, his blood-stained clothes contrasting sharply with its lack of color. His faded blue eyes were wide open, like he had been staring in the face of betrayal right before his death, even though he could not have seen it with his eyes. Or perhaps he had been so shocked that he could not comprehend the revelation he had been forced to accept.

No one would be able to claim that his death had been a kind one.

Finally, his eyes slowly closed, but the Pope didn’t relax. He continued releasing more holy light. Everyone waited with bated breath, nearly afraid to breathe.

They were all waiting for those eyes to open once more.

In one bright flash, the Pope released all of the holy light he had left. He gasped, nearly collapsing by the table. The light was so bright that even though all of them still refused to blink, they couldn’t prevent themselves from wincing.

As Elmairy rubbed his eyes to get rid of the black spots in his vision, he thought he saw Grisia’s fingers twitch. Then, Grisia gasped, like one might do after resurfacing from water.

All of a sudden, his eyes shot open. Bone Prisons sprang up around him.

“Roland…” was the first thing Grisia said.

“Sun, you’re safe!” Lesus shouted. You were…betrayed, but you’re safe now.

Grisia turned his head, tilting his ear towards Lesus. “I’m safe?” He weakly reached a hand to his neck and then twisted the bloody fabric in front of his chest where he had been stabbed. “I’m… alive?”

He dispelled the Bone Prison.

“The Pope resurrected you,” Lesus said, but even as he spoke, he saw a strange expression come over Grisia’s face.

Then, Lesus saw Grisia grab the front of his shirt, his hands roving about.

“Sun?” Elmairy called out in concern.

Without answering, Grisia cupped the front of his chest. “Tell me I’m hallucinating.”

Lesus stared, suddenly all too aware of the price Grisia had paid.

Georgo whistled. “That’s some rack you’ve got!”

“What? That’s no way to speak to-” In the middle of his retort, Chikus finally got a good look at Grisia. His jaw promptly dropped open.

“Is there something wrong with your eyes?” Laica asked Ceo.

Ceo stopped winking. “Ah… no. I just suddenly had this urge to wink…”

Grisia’s breathing was now very labored, like he couldn’t get enough air. “Could you all… just… What the **** happened! Someone explain it to me.”

He propped himself up, his long white hair falling behind his back. Now that his hair was no longer in the way, it was easy to see that Grisia possessed something extra he didn’t have earlier.

He cupped his “breasts,” yes, breasts, and demanded an explanation. These breasts were large enough that Feng Lan would surely envy him for them.

“Hey, don’t look at me,” the Pope said, hastily diverting the blame from himself. “I told them all that it was possible that you would come back with something that would make you want to die instead.”

“Sun would never choose to abandon us!” Chikus bellowed.

“But how can he stay the Sun Knight with…” Aivis gestured towards Grisia’s chest.

Grisia hugged himself to stop them from staring at his chest. He screeched, “I would rather die!”

“Grisia,” Lesus finally said. “Don’t be like that. It’s only… some extra… lumps…”

“Only some extra lumps!? You try to have these!” But after he shouted, Grisia looked up with a calculating expression. Then, his mouth wavered and water leaked out of his eyes. “Oh Lesus! You’ll take care of me, won’t you?”

Lesus immediately took a step back. He knew Grisia well enough to know that he had nothing good up his sleeve.

“Lesus~!” Grisia said and swung his legs over the table. He leapt towards Lesus, his breasts bouncing.

Lesus immediately tripped him and stepped out of the way.

“Ow!” Grisia exclaimed, falling to the floor. He sat up and whined, his voice climbing high. “That was mean of you.”

“Captain Judgment, no fair!” Laica complained. “You should trip me!”

Lesus rubbed his temples. At least it seemed like Grisia had no other side effects. He could hear. He could speak. He could gather elements. His personality was obviously still intact too.

“Sun, is it just me, or is your voice even higher than my girlfriend’s now?” asked Vival.

Grisia froze. He quickly patted himself between his legs.

He shrieked.

Everyone winced.

Ecilan patted Grisia on the shoulder. “I’ll make you blueberry pie.”

That’s not going to solve anything, is it? Everyone else thought to themselves.

Demos appeared to say, “But we still need a Sun Knight.” Then, he disappeared again.

Everyone turned to stare at Grisia’s… chest.

“The problem is those two melons.”

“M-melons?!”

“But isn’t he a girl now?”

“So? He looked like one before anyway! He still looks the same now except for his chest!”

“Stop talking like I’m not here!”

Now it was everyone else’s turn to adopt a calculating face.

“What if he binds them?”

“It’s going to get in the way of his swordplay if he doesn’t anyway.”

“He sucks at swordsmanship, so that’s not a factor!

“Bind them and problem solved!”

“Who has bandages?”

Laica immediately left to get his bandages.

Just then, Adair burst into the room. “Captain, you were rescued?”

How did you get here so quickly? Everyone wondered. Adair had evacuated with the citizens after all and should have been nowhere near Leaf Bud City.

Adair stared at his captain. “I think I’m dreaming.”

“You’re not.”

“I must never have woken back up after fainting.”

“No, you’re awake.”

With a determined expression, Adair dropped to his knees and loudly exclaimed, “Captain, please marry me!”

Alarmed, Chikus shook his head and shouted, “No, if anyone, it should be me! I’m his number one supporter!”

To the side, Elmairy worriedly said, “Storm, I’m afraid for your eyes.”

Ceo shouted, “I can’t stop winking!”

While all this was happening, Lesus watched without a word, expression solemn as one would expect of the Judgment Knight, but he was secretly thinking, Grisia’s mine!

Grisia flipped the table and yelled, “Awaitsun!!!!! I changed my mind! I want to become the Demon King! Take me away from this nightmare!” Sadly, Awaitsun was too far away to hear him. He wasn’t around in the Holy Temple, let alone the current room.

Adair was hurt. Did his captain prefer Awaitsun over him? “I’m just kidding, Captain. Don’t worry. It’s April 1st.”

“April Fools!” The Twelve Holy Knights shouted.

Vival glanced over Grisia appreciatively. “I know your real fate is probably different, but maybe you’ll find that you prefer this one instead.”

“No thank you!” Grisia shouted. He spoke in a higher volume, addressing an audience that wasn’t there. “You better go click the real link and forget any of this ever happened! But don’t forget the blueberrypie!”

Meanwhile, Laica had returned with the bandages. He brandished them in front of them. “I’ve got them!”

In unison, the Twelve Holy Knights surrounded Grisia.

Grisia backed up with his hands held up. “Wait, I’m your leader!”

“Exactly! We cannot be without a Sun Knight, even if he has turned into a girl!”

“Without the Sun Knight, we would have no path to follow!”

“Grab him!”

  2. Oh god… For a second there… FOR A REALLY LONG SECOND….. I forgot about April Fool’s Day… That is terrifying to the umpteenth degree. XD

  3. Okay I’m confused, is Sun or a girl now?i am so lost right now….

  4. Happy fools days :) I was looking forward to what kind of joke you would play this year!!!!))))
    Indeed Fang Lang would cry “why not me?” If she so this XD
    Thanks a lot PR

  5. Alley Cat

    Wow, insanity indees ;)

  6. Good lord, my heart almost couldn’t take it. And this was after watching both the BL VN pv and that sad MAD about Grisia and the tower of boxes on Youtube. You got me good here. xD

    • @Netto
      That is such a good video! You make me want to watch it again.

    • @[PR]lucathia
      Which vid? Please link it ^_^

    • @Nimue
      It spoils V8!

      But for anyone who is curious, the title of the video is 【吾命騎士替歌】槌子之歌與悲痛之塔. It’s set to a song by Bump of Chicken called “Hammer Song to Itami no Tou” (Hammer Song and the Tower of Pain). The lyrics and the video fit together really, really well. My heart aches for Grisia. I suggest watching it after reading V8. =P

    • [PR]raylight

      @[PR]lucathia
      OMG I watched that one! My heart was breaking while watching it.

      But it really does spoil so terribly for V8, so please watch it only after you have finished reading V8!

  7. “Grisia,” Lesus finally said. “Don’t be like that. It’s only… some extra… lumps…”
    I.. CAN’T.. STOP LAUGHING!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAA.. ROTFL

    I completely forgot about April’s Fool! Who’s made this story? I give him/her my double thumbs up!

    • @Monica
      *raises hand* The story is inspired from Yu Wo’s V6 author notes, hahaha. It just so happened to work out that I also translated the real chapter. =P

  8. Nice! If only this was a real chapter…..

  9. Digiporklo

    THIS WAS GREAT!!

    Good job PR this has made my April fools day! Give who ever wrote this a pay rise it was so good. I was physically laughing my pants off while my sister looked at me like I was crazy.

    “Captain, please marry me!” God I loved Adair in this.

  10. God I was so excited for that BL! Or shoujo (Hoped it was more romantic though lol)
    Now I can wait a bit more peacefully for the next chapter

  11. With a determined expression, I dropped
    to ‘her’ knees and loudly exclaimed, “Lady Captain,
    please marry my brother! I’m your number one fans!! I wanna have sister-in-law like you!!!”

    • Demon Wolf

      @Evita
      He then will give you a look as if it saying: “Dawn it, I want girl, not boys!”lol

  12. thanks PR for that hilarious chapter :D and a happy april fools day to everyone (^^,)/

  13. Grisia’s mine! – Lesus

    Pfft… April fool’s indeed…

  14. If it was not for the fact that this chapter was released at the start of the month (suspicious), I might have believed it. Thanks to whoever wrote it!

  15. Seraphim

    As expected it’s a April Fools joke.
    Thanks for the laughs and I’m looking forward to reading the real chapter even more than before.

  16. Ahaha You tricked me!!! I forgot of April’s fool. But it was really funny read. O well, In the end all the Twelve Holy Knights love their Sun Knight and this is a different way to put it, isn’t it?
    PS I loved Judgment secret thought “Grisia’s mine ” XDXDXD

  17. Michael Chandra

    “A new chapter already? No way. Oh right, April’s Fools. So I guess Sun is made a girl.” *scrolls to comments* “Nailed it.”

    ^_^

  18. dollyfishe

    Lesus secretly thinking …. wahhahahhahahahhaha i cant stop laughing ROTFL

  19. that was great!!! xD

  20. Oh man, this trumps even that april fools prank from a few years ago when the chapter was Audio only!

    Kudos and near-worship to whoever was amazing enough to think this up

  21. LennyThynn

    Thank you, thank you, thank you<3

    This was the best April Fools joke, I've got tears in my eyes from laughing :D And thank you again for releasing it this early and cutting our torture short. You guys are awesomesauced!

  22. NyakoFCC

    I just wanted to read this year hook, and PR! didn’t disappointed me~~ <3

  23. ~RenTheWitch~

    lol everyone desired to marry Grisia! bet he was a pretty girl LOOOOOLL

  24. So good! The only prank I enjoy every year!

  25. Miau Miau Yeen

    Lol…. April fool. D:
    I was shocked when I read till the part where Sun grabbed onto his own “lumps”.
    Cause I definitely know that did not happened!!!

    • @Miau Miau Yeen
      Ahahaha. XD; You’ve read the actual novels, yeah? Reading this must have felt weird!

    • Miau Miau Yeen

      @[PR]lucathia
      My mouth was twitching with disbelieve while reading the whole thing. I must have looked really hilarious. Thank god I was alone (minus my cat) in my room while reading it. But like the others I’m rather looking forward to a continuation of this. Good Job! XD

  26. So… does this mean that the real chapter isn’t out yet? oh this chapter is freaking awesome by the way! (even if it’s just for April fool’s day) XD really got me good

    • @Gideon
      Attention everyone, the real chapter IS out. Read the fake chapter again, and you’ll find it. We’re not trying to hide it much at all. =P

    • ~RenTheWitch~

      @[PR]lucathia

      But…i has a password…

    • @~RenTheWitch~
      *frowns* It’s a hard password too… Not even “lucathiaawesomeness”, “iheartPR”, “adairfangirl4eva”, “blueberry”, “lesusgrisiaBFFs” or “nullnullnull” worked… *sigh* Must wait for the actual release date, then.

    • @15B
      It’s right below the link! Just look a little harder.

    • ~RenTheWitch~

      @15B
      Got it!! :D ty

  27. Jasae Bushae

    Oooo~ Aaaaaah~
    Well thats one way to draw in more readers!
    I want to see more fem-Grisia hitting on the twelve knights! XD

  28. if only this is what really happened OTL

  29. God … You got me.I forgot today was April fools day.

  30. Ohohoho, this is perfection <3 Í had prayed for a fake LSK chapter and I got exactly what I wanted |D
    ONLY GENDERSWAP-FANFICTION I'LL ACCEPT (and it wouldn't be a lucathia-written piece if there was no Adair showing up would it)
    THANK YOU, THIS IS BLISS

  31. Ahhha! I forgot you guys do this on April fools. I figured it out when Lesus said sun was his. Hahhaa!! Good one!

    • @00Misty
      Wait, Feng Lan’s name didn’t seem strange? XD; I wonder if this means the characters still felt in character even after that point, LOL. (I only wrote them seriously up to that point. Everything after that was meant to be random. XD;;)

  32. Thanks, I really need this. My day today was pretty depressing, I don’t know why (hormone and the fact that my favourite sitcom How I Met Your Mother ended like it was a short lived dream). Being able to laugh out loud released that pent up frustration real well. This is why we need April’s Fool :D

    • @nga130
      I’m glad you got a laugh out of this! <3 I hope your day went okay after that.

      I haven't followed How I Met Your Mother but I've heard quite a lot about the ending already…

  33. Omg, I was actually thinking ‘I knew it!!’ Ahaha! But it became so silly around the middle. Hahahah! This was really a fun chapter. Happy April fool’s day!

  34. KitsuneKawaii

    rather a mild april’s fool compared to last year

    (visitting the sight will be relocated to http://xxgrisialuvr2001xx.tumblr.com/)

  35. Gohankuten

    Very entertaining read. I was expecting it but still was very funny.

  36. mohawkferrari

    omg I was so tired after reserving a slot in a college I went to..I forgot it was April Fools Day…

    I read this, and I thought it was serious and I was laughing so hard. I feel so dumb.
    x’D

  37. In unison, the Twelve Holy Knights surrounded Grisia.

    12? is the 12th the Pope or has Roland made a 180* again? should be 11 max because Sun cant surround him self. Or is Adair a Holy knight now? :p

    • @Erios
      An honorary member of the Twelve Holy Knights? Adair would surely take to the job well. Or actually, no… He wouldn’t want to stop serving his captain! He’d be somewhat on the same footing if he were a knight-captain like his captain. That wouldn’t work! (Though I suppose that means he could join the Doing a Small Favor Club and get a nickname bestowed upon him like many of the other knight-captains).

  38. Xeraphina

    I started feeling like something was wrong when the chapter mentioned Feng Lan. XD This was hilarious! Oh god, I still can’t stop laughing!

    • @Xeraphina
      What, Feng Lan isn’t a part of LSK? =P Surely your memory is playing tricks on you…

    • @[PR]lucathia
      I thought the same Lol. I was like who is feng lan? The mere mention of feng lan gave it away. It must be an april fools joke. Aha ha.. Anyways, I saw bouncy boobies!! For real, when I read that line, sun’s bouncy boobies.. that image just flashed into my mind, know what I mean?

  39. Vermillion

    only after adair proposed did I realize it was just an april’s foll. and really, we all know sun would marry ice for sweets XD
    either way thanks PR staff!
    (bind him, yeah sure…they only want to see him naked)

  40. The Book Girl

    I knew it as soon as I saw that you’d already posted on the first day of the month. There are only two reasons that would happen: chapters carried over that weren’t posted in the previous month (Because we all know it’s happened), or April Fools. It was still really funny, though.

  41. Tsk tsk. Silly little knights. Don’t they know that enough sugar can solve anything? I bet even Storm would be able to stop winking if he ate enough sweets!

  42. it wasn’t until adair proposed that i realized this was an april fools joke. still, this was hilarious! maybe i should start reading fanfics, even if they aren’t by yuwo, if they are as funny as this i wouldn’t mind

  43. actually, I would like to see the continuation of the story from here,
    just as I cant believe it at first (forgotten about the date),
    its quite interesting :)
    I always like gender bender story, it makes me curious of what could happen…hehe, I’m never going to forget this one :(>_<)

    • @rei
      Proposing aside, they still need to take care of the demon king business first and pass Sun off as if nothing had happened. XD; I’m sure they’ll have no troubles passing Sun off. :3;;

  44. sandal hat

    nice april fools! I remembered it was april fools around the time he noticed his newly aquired “lumps” and how you guys love your april fools jokes!

  45. Oh… Bwahaha!!! That was simply hilarious XD
    That one I didn’t see coming, though the mention of Feng Lan was a bit fishy… ;)
    Yeah, fanfics can be loads of FUN :D
    Thanks for this, PR!!!

  46. ~RenTheWitch~

    Whats the password to read the actual chapter :/?

  47. Oh gods XD
    I knew it was April Fools and was excited of what you all would come with this year, and I and surprised!
    Love it!
    Thank You PR =D

  48. Bwuajaja! This was so funny! Poor Storm couldn’t stop winking, Adair proposed and Judgment was thinking about having Grisia all to himself. Priceless! This was soooo good @[PR]lucathia, you’re amazing!

    In the other hand, I can’t believe I found the password! Lucky!
    Thank you sooo much, PR! :D ♥

  49. persimmon

    Awesome April Fool’s joke, and great chapter.

  50. OMG this was wonderful!!! I felt like I died and went to heaven. This was too perfect!!! Adair proposing, Ceo not being able to stop winking, and Lesus claiming Sun for himself??? I want this to be real!!! I so was hoping for this harem!!! Why oh why isn’t this real??? I have to read this again!!! I can’t stop laughing/squealing/giggling!!!

  51. Lucki13ear

    This is a really good chapter. I totally fell for the April Fool’s Joke.
    Lol, I think if Sun has to choose, he can finally marry Ice.
    I had fun reading this! Thank you!!

  52. Even though I knew it was April Fool’s day, you still totally had me going. This is awesome!

  53. After having my blueberrypie, I decided that I prefer this fate over the real one… Just saying…

  54. …at least Earth would definitely be nicer to Sun.

  55. SniffingfYou

  58. I got a bit suspicious near the end, but that was good. xD
    I have to say I was quite sad that this isn’t really. ;))

  59. OMG LMFAO ALL I CAN IMAGINE NOW IS STORM’S EYE JUST RAPIDLY TWITCHING OMG I CAN’T *dies*

    Before i read the first chapter of LSK, i thought grisia was a woman in one of its summary. XD
    And imagined it until i know the truth and then, become a (bit) disappointed. This chapter make my past imagination came true. Thanks, lucathia!! ( serve a slice of blueberry pie)

  65. NanoLaughing

  66. I’m dying here I don’t have a password

    • snuffie

      @PenName
      I symphatize with you, but it’s useless to mope about, instead just think of blueberry pies.
      I love blueberry pie, so why is there some space separating uuuss?!? Blueberry should be stuck to the pie! Else it’s not blueberry pie!!

      (That should be okay right? It’s already been a day after all..)

    • penname

      @snuffie
      i finally did it! i found out the password and thank you!
      it was actually my first thought but i think i accidentally made a typo and so didn’t work for me and for some reason i didn’t try it again >< ( i'm an idiot i know)

      so thanks again because of you i tried it again!!

  67. OMG you guys are awesome whoever wrote this was awesome (good job!); didn’t even realize it was an April Fool’s joke until all the guys started going for Grisia. XD

  68. Good Job PR! Hey Sun as girl rather fun too

  69. Laughed for 20 minutes straight ! I love this, ahahaha!
    I read it on April 3rd so I had no idea~ Up until lesus trying to monopolize sun I kept thinking, is this a trick? Or is it real? I can’t tell!
    I can tell that the epilogue really fueled you imagination for this xD
    Its great~ Im going to read it again ~

  70. So so late reading. I forgot about PR and the date. Thx for the fun.

  71. I found it really funny, especially with the proposals lol xDD but…………… Is there really a real link? Because i cant find it if there is DX

  72. Lunar191

    I swear it’s because I didn’t realize when this was posted and not because I’m gullible but… I totally believed this actually happened until you linked us to the other one. I believe I’ve even seen pictures of what Sun actually gets but I just wouldn’t put this past our lovely author. Bahahahaha that was amazing though so thanks!

  73. I must’ve tried a billion variations of blueberrypie and none of them worked. What’s WRONG with MeEEEAeEEEEE??!?
    *cries*
    *chuckles*

    Really great April fools chapter though. :)

  74. what is the password?

  75. my only wish if this was a real chapter not an april fool chapter. just image the possiblity lol.

  76. Demon Wolf

    I love the one who write this story, the reality is too hard for me. Really,maybe Sun would prefer this fate more than the one in the real chapter…

  77. Thank you! This is just hilarious!

  78. Does anyone else want this to be the real plot?
