How does Kirigaya Suguha's asking him to teach her how to play ALfheim ' cause there was all that drama with Suguha/Lyfa and Kazuto/Kirito. That led me to start thinking more about how their relationship got started in real life. My brother, Kirigaya Kazuto, won the lottery to beta test the game. "You cannot be in a relationship with your cousin. I see a whole lot more girls than guys [Kirito Yui Asuna Leafa Klein Sachi Silica Lisbeth] ~ Sword Art Online. Kirito's charm and innate goodness made it easy for Leafa to fall in love with him. . It was a test whether the youth of today truly knows the meaning of life and to determine . The Love/Hate Relationship with Sword Art Online.
Kuradeel and Kirito met once more to train but now under the same guild. Kuradeel almost killed Kirito with a paralyzing potion but Asuna was there to stop him. In the end, Kirito killed Kuradeel as he tried to harm Asuna. Their main goal is to steal valuable items from players out of selfishness.
Kirito described PoH as a master in using a dagger. Even Kirito was uneasy while telling the story to Asuna which is an evident proof that PoH is a formidable player. Nevertheless, his guild was wiped out after facing the alliance of good guilds. The couple got fond of Yui so they decided to help the poor child regain her memory. They first teleported to the starting point city on SAO, where everything began, hoping that Yui could pick up some of her memories if she stumbles upon a familiar place.
To their disappointment, everything seem new to Yui. Kirito and Asuna ended up helping a trapped guild leader in a very dangerous dungeon. They were up against a very strong monster and were almost totally defeated when Yui stepped in and used her GM privileges. That girl was not his type. Of course, to be completely honest, no girl was 'his type. He was the one who hadn't yet hit puberty, hadn't ever played a sport, and most definitely didn't have a single social skill to date.
So it was a complete surprise — a truly unforeseen event — when said girl casually approached him of all people, and asked to meet him after school.
Kirigaya Kazuto/Relationships | Sword Art Online Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
His palms were sweating, feet shuffling, and mind racing as he waited for Suguha in the school courtyard. Why in the world would she ask to talk to him?
Had he done something to get on her bad side? Or maybe he was in a class group with her and had forgotten to do his part of the work? No, it couldn't be either of those things. Conversations with girls were rare occurrences for him; he was certain he would remember something serious enough to merit a conference with Ms.
So what did she want? Feeling nervous beads of sweat drip down his back, Nagata turned to greet his interrogator. If he had any pride to start with, he would have lost it the moment he had to look up to meet her gaze. But as it was, he knew humility would prolong his life a little more than self-importance.
He slightly bowed his messy, black-haired head, careful to remain upright enough to keep his round glasses balanced on his nose. I had heard you played that virtual reality game 'ALfheim Online. Yeah, I've been playing it for a few months now.
I want you to teach me how to play it. Can you meet me in two hours after my kendo practice? Where do you want to meet up? One of the most popular, sporty girls in school had asked, no, commanded him to teach her how to play one of the most hardcore video games on the market. Where had that come from? Seeing his confusion, and seeming to revel in it, Suguha gave him a cheery wave before slinging her shinai bag over her shoulder and spinning to skip off to practice. Still frozen, he stared after her retreating figure, barely managing to hear a mischievous 'see you later' as she rounded the corner to the dojo.
What had he just gotten himself into? So far around three thousand people had died, their brains eroded with high powered microwaves that fried the cells within the cranium. Granted, this new game ran on a new device, the AmuSphere, which practically had every safety precaution known to man. But still, the suspicion held towards FullDive technology still ran rampant worldwide.
It had taken Nagata three months to convince his parents. He had read every scrap of information, every article, and every manual there was to read on the subject of VR. He had to try it out. For once in his life he was willing to throw caution to the wind and discover the revolutionary advancements technology had made for steady gamers like himself.
When they finally said yes, he didn't hesitate to blow all the money he'd been saving to buy the necessary facilities. That very day he had logged in and spent six hours acclimating himself to his Sylph avatar, Recon. The task had been heinously difficult at first; learning to match his body response with the digital data that was flowing between his brain and the server. But he wasn't stupid, and he figured it out with a little bit of experience. Before the week was out, he had found his knack for it.
He was waiting for her again, this time sitting on a bench in the mall. Absently waving his feet back and forth they were too short to touch the floorhe let his thoughts wander aimlessly. He really couldn't think of a viable reason that Suguha would want to play video games. She didn't seem like that kind of girl. No, she was far too focused on her career as a kendoist, wasn't she? It would probably startle him every time.
He jumped off the bench to face his classmate, flustered. One of my favorite stores sells some good value hardware. Oh, and by the way, just Nagata is fine. Her cheeks were still rosy from her earlier exercise, but it suited her rather well. But letting one beautiful girl share it with him wouldn't be so bad. Shopping bags in hand, shinai bag over shoulder, and book bag on her back, Suguha looked weighed down like a pack horse.
Nagata nervously stole another glance at her laden form, feeling rather guilty that he hadn't offered to help earlier. But like his mom always said: Suguha came to a sudden stop, a hard look suddenly springing into her eyes. I need your help, but nothing beyond that; which means, you should treat me the same as ever, especially at school. I don't really… want anyone to know about this.
You said you were a Sylph, right? Be waiting for me at the capital! Nagata stood there alone amidst the crowd, watching her go. Even though Suguha made it obvious she didn't see him as a friend, it had still been him she had asked to show her the virtual world. He wasn't going to let her down. The Sylph swordswoman, Lyfa: While appearances were randomly generated, similar traits ran within races.
Lyfa, like many other Sylphs, was 'big boned,' as some would call it. Suguha's character had dazzling green eyes, long blonde hair, and peachy skin.
Garbed in white leather and green silk, her outfit lingered somewhere between functional and medieval. Her countenance made her look much older than she was in real life despite her pointed, fairy ears.
Nagata was actually quite surprised with how quickly she adapted to the system. Her movements became smooth within minutes, her grasp of Sylvian covetable, and her katana skills fearsome.
Only a month had passed and Lyfa had mastered voluntary flight and become one of the top warriors amongst the Sylphs. Her translatable skill came — of course — from kendo, but Nagata soon realized that Suguha was quite clever too. She was considerably adept with magic and race politics, mastering spells and making connections with top players right away.
Yet, despite this, Lyfa continued to hang around Recon. While she would take leisurely flights alone, in Sylvian, she was rarely without Recon in her company. Recon would have to be blind to not notice this behavior, and he soon came to a possible conclusion: Suguha liked to be herself, and she liked it when others were the same. She didn't appreciate people who put on airs; people she couldn't trust whether they were acting or genuine.
In MMOs, everyone wore the mask of their character, and that was something Lyfa could not rationalize. So she kept close to the one person she knew. Realizing this, Recon became even more determined to stick close to Lyfa as well. If that meant getting stronger so he could keep up with her, he would. This meant monopolizing his greatest strength: He spent hours training his magic skill and memorizing spells and discovering a certain aptitude he had for dark magic.
If I can learn some really powerful magic, maybe one day I'll be the one to protect her, and then I'll be the one to impress her. She will finally be able to see me as a real friend. Knowing that Suguha didn't appreciate being bothered by him at school, Nagata kept his interactions with her limited to a once-a-week basis, switching up the days so it didn't seem too systematic.

For the most part, she tolerated it; after all, it had been nearly a year since they started playing ALO together. Today he settled for a casual walk in the hall, coming up alongside her as she switched classes even though his class was nowhere nearby. He almost slipped up and called her by the name far more familiar to him. He offered her a — hopefully — friendly smile before saying, "Do you want to meet at that tea shop you like in Sylvian before hunting this afternoon? I won't be logging in.
I'm going to visit him. You've never mentioned him before. I'll be going to visit him after practice, so I won't be logging in today. I'm sorry to hear that about your brother. Will he be okay? What's wrong with him… may I ask? Seconds passed as the hallway grew less populated, the bell moments from marking the commencement of the next class.
Nagata was unsure of what to say. While locked in indecision, three chiming notes drifted through the halls, indicating that both students would be tardy. With a forced smile, Nagata said, "Tell him I said happy birthday!
Confused, and somewhat terrified at the idea of a crying girl, Nagata quickly strode to the class he was late to. But he hadn't imagined the way her lips silently repeated that name: It took Nagata a week to work up the courage to bring up Suguha's mysterious brother again, and only then was it attempted while in ALO. After the sensitive encounter before, he hadn't been sure if it was a good idea. He did not want his inquiry to bring tears, because he knew he wouldn't be able to handle that.
But his curiosity was burning to the point where he needed to know. Why had she kept her brother such a secret? Why was he in the hospital? And what caused so much pain to cloud those normally, joy-filled eyes? Besides, it was polite to ask if he was getting better, was it not? Despite the fact that they were flying — and that generally required all of Recon's focus — he asked the question he had kept bottled up for days: But it was quickly recovered.
Of course, he knew of the thousands of comatose patients, their minds trapped in another world while their families waited in anxiety every day, wondering if they'll ever come back. But this was the first time he had met someone with a personal connection to that tragedy. Seeing the pain in Lyfa's green eyes as she tried to smile it away made the situation more real than ever before; up until now, it had just been a bad story; something that didn't happen in real life.
By now, his body is nothing more than skin and bones. When I hold his hand, it's so small and thin. My mom's been teasingly calling him our 'sleeping beauty. It'll be hard, but I'm gonna be there for him. She was still smiling, and the ache was still there in her eyes, but that intense look was the same one she wore in a heated battle: Offering a small grin of his own, he said, "I know you will.
I'm sure he couldn't ask for a better sister to be by his side. It sounded so stupid! Lyfa's cheeks blushed rose. Adverting her gaze she mumbled, "You really think so?
She put distance between them, not because of what he said, but because she didn't want him to see her cry. He was fine with that. The Lyfa-chan in his head was always smiling; Suguha wanted him to keep it that way.
You're still so much stronger than me, he thought. And he finally understood why she had approached him that day last year. Torn by the grief of losing her brother, she had set out to understand him further. She wanted to experience the kind of world he lived in — survived in — every hour of every day. Suguha wanted to see what had drawn him in, caged him, and could possibly kill him.
Instead of living in fear of FullDive, she decided to understand it, and accept that not all of it was evil.

She lived day-to-day like her brother was, not dwelling on what could have been, but looking forward to the prospects the future had to offer. When he heard the news that SAO had been cleared, the first person that came to mind was Kirigaya Suguha. As expected, she missed a few days of school and didn't log into ALO for a few more after that.
And Nagata was happy for her, but he was itching for information. He wanted to know the details. But it soon became apparent; details of that other world were not casually shared. People had died, people had changed, and the victims would never be the same.
Right now was a healing time for the bodies, minds, and souls of the SAO players. Some would be scarred for life, never to pick up a gaming device again. Some would suffer from posttraumatic stress.
And some would be unable to return to their livelihoods. And those were the lucky ones. Nearly four thousand had died, never to return to either world; among them was Kayaba Akihiko, the game's infamous creator. All the same, people celebrated the return of the players, calling it a blessing — a miracle.
On television, family members cried as they embraced their emancipated loved ones, as if reclaiming them back from the dead. Politicians made new resolutions to assist the victims with their recovery.
Articles were published, but still, very little information on the actual events was divulged. Nagato turned to his alter ego, Recon's, information gathering techniques.
He trawled through vast tracts of the internet, to gaming circles, where friends talked about friends that had been in SAO.
He contacted a few of his gaming buddies IRL, asking them to keep their ears open for any bits of info. He even watched a few of the bogus interviews mainly of low-level players on TV. In the end, this is what he found: The front liners or clearing group had only reached floor seventy-five as of that November, two years after the original SAO incident. Rumors from the people who were actually present in that boss room said that a single player was the reason for the game's early victory.
Leader of the strongest guild, Knights of the Blood, was really Kayaba Akihiko in disguise. He had been playing since the beginning, but obviously, with GM powers. The mysterious 'Black Swordsman' — talented dual blade wielder and strongest solo player — was responsible for his defeat.
These rumors were the most reoccurring, but they definitely seemed far-fetched. Kayaba playing as the leader of clearing guild? They didn't even finish the game! And dual wielding… something that was notoriously difficult in real life was accomplished in VR?
But now Nagata was satisfied enough not to pester Suguha with questions she probably didn't want to answer. And that was good enough for him. She knew who it was just by the way he called her name; he wasn't sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing. He stopped in front of her, leaning over with his hands on his knees, gasping for breath.
She gave off a small huff, irritated by his physical inability. It was the same expression she made as Lyfa when he couldn't keep up with her while flying in ALO. I'm heading home for the day. We've already taken entrance exams, and both you and I have already been accepted to the high schools we want to go to. You should skip too.
Spending time in a class you don't need isn't studious, it's wasteful. And back to the main point: When she wanted them to, her words could cut like her silver, katana sword.
He wasn't sure why, but he seemed to get flustered around Suguha a lot more easily as of late. A while ago he had finally considered himself her friend, even if she didn't return the sentiment, but sometimes he felt like there was something more… Mmmm… nevermind.
Really well in fact. It's only been two months, but he's been really active. Besides physical therapy he's been going to the gym to work out too. Last month he bought a bicycle and he's been riding that a lot, just to get around and whatnot. He should know better than to think he could beat the national-quarterfinalist Kirigaya-sama! A beat, "Oh nothing," Suguha waved her hands dismissively, "I should really get home. See you later Nagata-kun! It was truly miraculous that she had survived the Salamanders' onslaught.
Just more proof of her talent in swordsmanship and her skills in flight. But when the crowds finally thinned enough that he could see her he noticed that she wasn't alone. A black clad figure was sprawled on the ground near the base of the central tower, Lyfa standing over him, saying something teasingly. A second later the boy curled up his legs, rolled off his back, and sprung to his feet with apparent ease, stretching casually afterwards. It was the demeanor of someone highly experienced in FullDive.
As Recon drew closer he recognized the trends that would label the stranger as a Spriggan: Dark attire aside, it was extremely suspicious. The boy didn't look like he was wearing anything but the starter gear, yet here he was, casually wandering around in other territories where he could instantly be killed.
That wasn't courage; that was stupidity. So of course, he was flabbergasted to find that this boy had saved the great and mighty Lyfa-chan. First, she had called him her friend. Nagata didn't think she had felt that way about him yet. And second, why was the usually cautious Lyfa suddenly telling everything to a guy she had only just met? This was suspicious indeed.
Consorting with the enemy is not a good idea with Sigurd around. And then she proceeded to ditch out on Recon and her party without a hint of a guilty conscience. She dragged away the sputtering Kirito, saying she's promised him a drink.
Leaving Recon standing there without a clue as to what was going on with his friend, now that was mean! He realized he was breaking the once-a-week rule, but this was an emergency. He'd been completely ignored all night, and then Suguha had suddenly logged off without warning. Okay, so he wasn't her net-nanny, but still. Something was going on. Nagata could be creepy when he wanted to; his stalker-ish nature rubbing off from his ALO character's reconnaissance aptitude.
So when he waited for her behind one of the school buildings for a few hours, it didn't seem all that strange to him. Suguha, of course, didn't appreciate it. His glasses flashed in the sunlight, reflecting the light into Suguha's eyes and only ticking her off even further. Besides, I won't be joining you for a while. I've got some important business to attend to. That's at least a whole night of flying. Why would you do that? You can't trust a shady guy like that! I'm just helping him out because he helped me.
It's called 'returning the favor. Tell the gang I said 'hello. Still lying dejectedly on the ground, Nagata felt his heart sink lower in his stomach. Lyfa was leaving him without a backwards glance, no longer needing her faithful escort, Recon. He would not let himself become expendable. Nagata wanted to make sure he was nothing but useful to Suguha. If he let her walk away this easily, then he would never get a chance at her heart.
He wouldn't give up! He logged in later that afternoon with new resolve, doing a little bit of shopping before going to meet the others and tell them of Lyfa's withdrawal from the party. He had a theory, and based on Sigurd's reaction to the news, he wanted to be ready to act.
As predicted, Sigurd did not take the news well, "How dare she! Does she not know how bad this will make us look? One of our most powerful swordswomen leaving on a whim! Is she a fool? I'm sure she'll change her mind and stop acting like a child! The commander of the Sylph forces had been acting strangely for a while now. Though his reaction to Lyfa's decision wasn't particularly out of character for him, the look on his face had been desolate — as if someone stolen his Christmas presents.
He had called the Spriggan shady, but Sigurd was acting ten times worse. He had to find Lyfa. Double checking his supplies before ascending the tower, he decided to start his next mission immediately after he explained it to Lyfa.
The elevator doors slid open, revealing the backs of two fairies: Kirito was the first to turn, drawing the Sylph swordswoman's attention as well. And apparently I'm a renegade now too. But that was mostly on the spur of the moment. Sigurd wasn't very happy. What will you do now? My sword belongs to you alone, Lyfa-chan! But something has been bothering me lately. He gulped, slightly uncomfortable with being the target for both those emerald-green and coal-black stares.
I think Sigurd's at the heart of it, but I need to look into things a little further, so I'll stay here a bit longer. Unlike yesterday, he was now fitted out with more personalized gear. Covered head to toe in black leather and bearing a giant, iron great-sword strapped to his back, he looked a lot more imposing — and intimidating. Meeting his inky stare full on, Recon requested, "Kirito-san!
Look out for her please! She has a habit of flying into trouble, so be careful. The way he had wandered into Sylph territory, unconcerned; the way he had leapt to his feet after falling; the flawless control he exhibited over his avatar. There was only one type of person that could be both a newbie and a veteran: He should be fully capable watching over Lyfa. For a moment, surprise flitted across Kirito's face before it was erased by confident yet mischievous smile.
An understanding passed between them. Unconsciously, Recon added, "And just so we're clear, she's my—" He was abruptly cut off as a foot came down hard on his. Choking back the cry of pain he looked up to see Lyfa, arms crossed and a disapproving frown on her lips. Kirito gave him one last sympathetic look before following Lyfa. Recon barely managed to catch a fleeting, 'good luck,' before the Spriggan was gone as well.
With what, his mission? Somehow he had a feeling that wasn't what the black swordsman had meant. It had been a sucky day, to say the least, but that didn't mean it hadn't been productive. Though Recon had spent hours invisible in the sewers, then the next in Salamander captivity, he now knew what Sigurd was planning. All he had to do was escape and tell Lyfa.
He had sent her a quick message to be careful, because as soon as Sigurd had failed to convince her to stay in Sylvian, he had put out the order to have her PKed. But now he had to tell her Sigurd's plans for wreaking havoc at the peace summit between the Sylphs and the Cait Sith. Right now she was the only one close enough and the only one skilled enough to tip the balance and save the two races from Salamander invasion.
It anyone could do it, Lyfa could; she was resourceful. And she had that Spriggan with her; as a possible SAO survivor, he could prove to be a wild card if a fight broke out.
If he logged out, it would leave his body vulnerable to attack. But he was already a captive so it didn't make much of a difference. Either way, he was at the Salamanders' mercy, but he had been prepared for this situation, and didn't have anything too valuable on his person.
Some things were more important, like keeping his promises. His consciousness returned to his body where he was lying on his bed in his dark room. Quickly sliding the AmuSphere up over his head, he sat up, took a moment to get his bearings, and grabbed his mobile off the nightstand.
He had been overjoyed when Suguha finally suggested they exchange numbers to make it easier to coordinate their playing time while IRL. It had been over a half a year ago, but the number had been on his speed dial since day one.
Pressing one, Nagata listened to the ringer sound. Over and over and over again he called, not bothering to leave a message. He hoped that disturbance on her end of the line would be enough to register on her AmuSphere, asking her if she wanted to log out.
She could always let Kirito keep an eye on her avatar… …Unless she had been killed already by the Salamander forces. His face creased with worry, but his heart spoke louder: Caught off guard, it took him a second to gather his thoughts.
Just hearing her voice, knowing she had made it to Lugru, was enough to make the hours he'd spent tracking Sigurd worth it. It didn't matter that Recon was face-first in sewer water at the moment in VR, he had done what he'd said he'd do, and quite well. He explained the situation to Suguha.
