Birthday


Birthday

  • AUTHOR: MulticoloredGypsy
  • TITLE: Birthday
  • CATEGORY: Drama
  • RATING: PG
  • SUMMARY: As they walked to the elevator, Neo didn’t even notice that he was closer to the railing, and even if he did, he probably wouldn’t have cared.
  • AUTHOR’S NOTES: Don’t ask why Tank’s still alive (seeing how he’s supposed to be dead). He just is. Imagine that he doesn’t die for, say, another week. How does that sound? Good? Ok! The time is a little off, but I’m not writing it for the accuracy. Notice how this is actually not an AU…and it’s HAPPY! I wanted to start my summer absence with a bang.
  • DISCLAIMER: I do not own the Matrix, I am simply borrowing it from the brothers Warner and Wachowski. Any alternate universe ideas, however, are mine, but I am far too un-original to incorporate that into some original work.

Birthday

When Neo woke, he unconsciously reached to pull Trinity closer to him. Instead of feeling her body touches his, there was only a thin blanket between his fingers. He blinked a few times to adjust his eyes to the dim light of Trinity’s room in Zion. He remembered being offered his own room just a few doors down, but he refused. Trinity had found it quite funny how everyone in Zion seemed to want to separate them, even though they all knew her bed was big enough for two if they could share one of the Neb’s tiny cots.

The Woman I Loved (Is Dead)


The Woman I Loved (Is Dead)

  • AUTHOR: MulticoloredGypsy
  • TITLE: The Woman I Loved (Is Dead)
  • CATEGORY: Drama, Romance.
  • RATING: PG-13
  • SUMMARY: The woman I loved was dead. For the longest time I wouldn’t let them take her body away. I felt my need for her would destroy me, but it didn’t, and Morpheus took her away.
  • AUTHOR’S NOTES: Thanks to Zephyr and Alina for their nitpicking and beta-ing and all the aid I needed. Oh, and Zephyr, thanks for trusting me. *winks* you know I would never make such a huge cliché like that. *Things aren’t always as they seem, so don’t be fooled by your assumptions.*
  • DISCLAIMER: The Matrix doesn’t belong to me, I am simply borrowing the concept and the characters to expand on an idea of my own. And all the harm done here will have no affect on the sequels, don’t worry.

The Woman I Loved (Is Dead)

The woman I loved was dead, but of course, that was expected. It would have either been her or me. It was an unexpected relationship, just like all shipborn romances. We were expected to be soldiers, not lovers. We strived to stop our hearts from feeling, because when that happened, we would get weaker. A soldiers was trained to kill – once emotions started running loose, one might start thinking when killing a man, mentally counting how many mothers would be telling their children, “Daddy isn’t coming home.”

Longhand


Longhand

  • AUTHOR: MulticoloredGypsy
  • TITLE: Longhand
  • CATEGORY: Drama, Angst.
  • RATING: PG
  • SUMMARY: It broke their hearts to see Trinity; dark circles looming beneath her eyes as they strained to hold back the tears threatening to spill at any minute, her face drawn with sadness and guilt. None of them wanted to be the one to tell her it wasn’t likely that Neo would ever wake up.
  • SPOILERS: Spoilers for the end of Reloaded.
  • AUTHOR’S NOTES: I don’t have so much to say, except a HUGE thanks to Rae for beta’ing this for me, you’re so much help! Thanks again! You rock!

Longhand

He had brought her back to life only to have his own all but taken away, everything put on hold. Trinity tried to believe that Neo would come out of it, but she was plagued with fear and doubt. You can only put someone on hold for so long before they hang up. It wasn’t fair. What had she done to have him taken from her? Was it because she disobeyed him, entering the Matrix even after he had told her to stay out? If there was a god, was He punishing her?

A Soldier’s Blood


A Soldier’s Blood

  • AUTHOR: MulticoloredGypsy
  • TITLE: A Soldier’s Blood
  • CATEGORY: Romance
  • RATING: PG
  • SUMMARY: They were fireworks – explosions, but not bombs. Signs of celebration, bursting in bright colors that Trinity would never see.
  • AUTHOR’S NOTES: This fic is elaborating on the ideas stated in my fic ‘Old Soldiers Never Die.’ It takes place after the war. If you haven‘t read ‘Old Soldiers,’ you might get a bit lost, so shall now shamelessly plug my fic, a necessary read before you read this. ^-^*
  • DISCLAIMER: The Matrix doesn’t belong to me, I am simply borrowing the concept and the characters to expand on an idea of my own. And all the harm done here will have no affect on the sequels, don’t worry.

A Soldier’s Blood

They were fireworks – explosions, but not bombs. Signs of celebration, bursting in bright colors that Trinity would never see, blues and greens, oranges and reds not unlike the flames that took away her sight. Every single free human that had survived the battle was out of confinement and bondage. They celebrated, setting off ancient fireworks, dancing, singing, crying, embracing loved ones. All but two took part in the celebration, one of them being the man who was responsible for saving all of humanity. It would seem ironic that he chose to remain in an empty makeshift hospital, lying on a cot in a room that was empty save for an overturned chair, the cot and his love, Trinity, resting peacefully in his arms.

Ghosts of Yesterday


Ghosts of Yesterday

  • AUTHOR: MulticoloredGypsy
  • TITLE: Ghosts of Yesterday
  • CATEGORY: Drama, Romance, AU.
  • RATING: PG-13
  • SUMMARY: When they pulled Ghost out of the sewer, Trinity knew he was going to die. That is, if he wasn’t already dead.
  • SPOILERS: This is using a character introduced in Reloaded, but I know nothing about him except his name and ship, so none of the stuff I wrote about him is a spoiler.
  • AUTHOR’S NOTES:
    • I’m just messing around with one or two seconds of that wonderful trailer for Enter the Matrix and some interesting fueled conversations. And no, there is no ice cube involved in this. The lyrics around the end are from Evanescence’s ‘Understanding.’
    • For all you people like Chord and Jenn who have a hard time seeing Trinity with anyone but Neo, just try to overlook that. ;) Trust the Gypsy, I won’t do too much damage to the relationship.
    • This is the REVISED version, fixed up some problems people noticed and reviewed about. Thanks for the CC! Hope I fixed all the boo-boos.

Ghosts of Yesterday

Burn

  • AUTHOR: MulticoloredGypsy
  • TITLE: Burn
  • CATEGORY: Drama, AU.
  • RATING: PG
  • SUMMARY: The falling form in the sky was Trinity, trapped inside the helicopter as it fell steadily to its doom.
  • AUTHOR’S NOTES: Look at this, another AU. The poem on the bottom is mine, I wrote it especially for this.

Burn

You’ve stepped to the edge of the looking glass.
– Trinity, The Animatrix

Catch me as I fall
Say you’re here and it’s all over now.
– Evanescence, ‘Whisper’


“Trinity!”

Still Asleep


Still Asleep

  • AUTHOR: MulticoloredGypsy
  • TITLE: Still Asleep
  • CATEGORY: Drama, AU.
  • RATING: PG-13
  • SUMMARY: What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?
  • AUTHOR’S NOTES: This piece of fan fiction argues with dreams and reality, how can you tell the difference? Is there a difference? This is also the dramatic end to my string of depressing angsty AUs. Call it my finale. Going out with a bang. And a long one, at that. I worked so hard to get this done before Reloaded.

Still Asleep


What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?

– Morpheus, The Matrix

Where has my heart gone?
An uneven trade for the Real World.
Oh I want to go back to believing in everything and knowing nothing at all…

– Evanescence, “Field of Innocence”


Home Sweet Neb

Neo waited for Trinity to unplug him, wincing as the spike tapped against his head. The mental image was haunting – it’s impossible to see the back of your head, so Neo used his imagination to fill in the blanks. After all, it wouldn’t make anyone feel more comfortable if he came up to them and asked to see their plug.
