Shattered Crystal

Shattered Crystal


Can three teenagers manage to stay alive when they are thrown back intime to the edo era and have blood hungry Yokai on their tail? Can the Onmyouji save them with their powers!!?

1,665 readers have visited Shattered Crystal since HiddenNymph created it.




- Teenagers side –

What if a group of friends living in Tokyo 2011 one day visit a shrine for a simple hang out, maybe even camping, however, they may have tripped onto lands they really shouldn’t have gone too, especially when those teenagers break a clear white crystal that sat guarded by the shrine’s protector.

You see, the shrine they were at held a Kitsune, this Kitsune was not happy, neither was her god Inari with what the teenagers had done. So, in her anger at the humans camping freely on her land without paying an offering and then breaking the sacred crystal the Kitsune decided to punish the humans.

She showed them her human form, then suddenly she cast her arms wide and muttered words the humans could not understand. Within moments they felt their bodies churn with a weird feeling as they saw their hands being sucked towards the shrine. Naturally they panicked confused as to what was happening, the next thing they knew however was that they awoke in a world completely different to their own.

They had been sent back in time to the Edo era of Japan, a time of samurai, peasants, kimono’s, poor medicine, murder and blood not to mention rice for a main source of food. However the most important thing was that this was a time where Yokai and the gods such as Inari were worshiped and far more real than the teenagers had ever imagined.

However, completely unaware the Kitsune had also cursed them not by sending them merely back in time, but by inserting a piece of the crystal they shattered into each of their hearts. This jewel is a sacred crystal that has lasted generations; it was protected at the shrine because Yokai were attracted to the power it held.

If a Yokai were to get their hands on it they would be overwhelmed in power.
So, sent back in time where Yokai roam freely with a shattered crystal in their hearts how will the teenagers manage to survive against the Yokai that want to rip it out of them?

Will they ever make it home?


- Onmyouji side –

In the Edo period some humans with blood traits from generations had the power to kill Yokai protecting humans from their wrath.

They could focus their spiritual energy in order to seal the Yokai with paper talismans into jars, inside houses, caves or anything object that could hold them. Only the most powerful Onmyouji were capable of using their powers to destroy a Yokai completely.

Onmyouji also had the power to capture Yokai and make them their familiar’s through chains created from their paper talismans. Every Onmyouji however is limited by the number of Yokai they can control by two. Not all familiar’s are captured though, some willingly agree to employment as a familiar by the Onmyouji, these are normally the more docile Yokai and less powerful than the ones captured.

These young Onmyouji are training to become top officials within their organisation, they have been sent to protect the princess of their country from Yokai that desire her liver for power. However on their journey they come across the teenagers sent by the Kitsune when they are being attacked by a Yokai. Their Yokai instantly sense the crystals within their hearts, some may want it, others wary of it and some just plain not interested.

The Onmyouji have the ability to sense the power of the crystal within their hearts only with their palms by placing it over the teenager’s chests.

What will these Onmyouji decide to do with the teenagers when they discover this? Should they kill them in order to destroy the crystals and make sure Yokai don’t obtain them and grow powerful or should they protect the teenagers as they are?


- Yokai side -

Yokai are creatures from Japanese Myth, they are creatures such as Kitsune, Tengu’s, Kappa’s, and many more. However they also consist of animal spirits that have grown vengeful and hungry for blood which are the Yokai with less mental states. Not all animal based Yokai are like this however, Tengu’s for instance resemble black birds and are associated with protecting the household that they live within.

There are many Yokai unknown also each with their own creation of life and dangerous abilities.

Yokai have powers that can make Onmyouji tremble ranging from the ability to control fire and having teeth larger than a lions in order to eat humans whole. The stronger ones are able to give themselves human forms in order to become harder to detect and catch prey easier.

Yokai survive by implanting fear into the humans they know, some merely play tricks as they are small like fish with legs, others are large and inhumane eating humans on whims of boredom. However most desire power to grow stronger eating human livers on the belief it will give them power. The more noble a human the more power the liver would give them, so a princess is the most desired liver to have.

The Crystal implanted within the teenagers is known to them as the Crystal of Asure, if a Yokai consumed the crystal they would gain tremendous energy that extends their power beyond reason making them unstoppable, however absorbing the crystal also increases their blood lust for human livers.

Not all of the Yokai want to use the crystal, there are a few that want nothing to do it but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t take it if they didn’t have the chance, yet most Yokai which eat human livers to gain power would kill thousands to obtain it.

Not all Yokai desire to eat humans though, some are fascinated by them, others help them by being shrine gods and listen to their prayers, some simply live as tree spirits never interfering. However these peaceful type of Yokai if pushed by humans to the brink of destruction, their shrines defiled, their trees cut down then they may grow hatred towards humans and easily turn to killing them for revenge.

Will these Yokai gain the power they desire in order to survive in their own world, will they manage to find the crystals or will they consume the princess’s liver instead since the Onmyouji were held up?

Sueki hooked her arms around her two best friend's arms. She gazed up at the temple she had found a couple days ago. It was old, but held a timeless beuty with it.

"So guys, it's the perfect hangout, right? The temple is super old, but nobody comes here anymore. Heck, there aren't even any priests! We have the whole place to ourselves."

Yes. Some might think a girl alone with two guys at an abandoned temple would be questionable. But if you actually knew the trio, you wouldn't think twice about it. They had been friends for the longest of time, and have been unseperable. Mostly. Ya sure they have their share of fights and drama, but that only made Sueki's bond with Suzuya and Yukio stronger. Recently, they had been kicked out of their hangout at a local cafe, and had been hunting for a new place to call 'home'.

Sueki had found it at this old temple.

Yukio looked at the temple, then to Sueki, "a temple?" He asked in a reserved tone, "I wouldn't call a temple a hang out." He sighed and unlinked his arm from hers, then walked over to the steps and sat down. He pulled a book and his gold rimmed glasses, and paged through it, scanning the words with his blue green eyes, then he put the book down and looked around.

"What are we going to do?" He asked, "sit around here and talk? It's an abandoned temple, there isn't much to do here." As Yukio was looking around, something that had been reflecting light from the sun, shone in his eye, causing a glare. He took the glasses off and carefully dropped them on his book before standing up the investigate.

"Hey guys, come here, look what I found." He said, pointing to the object that had caused the glare in his glasses, a crystal.
