Title: Animus Facit Nobilem
Chapter: VIII. Detachment & Anonymity
Length: 8 pages
Warnings: No spoilers. Non-graphic morning after. Language.
Summary: When a series of bizarre events prompts the Black Order to dispatch exorcists, Lenalee and Lavi find that there is more going on in this small village on Malta than anyone could have expected. To make matters worse, the truth is going to hit just a touch too close to home for our Bookman cum Exorcist.
A/N: I received many similar questions regarding the business with Lavi's name, which makes me wonder if perhaps it is not widely known the stance taken in the anime--an episode in the late 80's, I believe. While Lavi's backstory has not been disclosed in the canon, what he says here is true to what has been disclosed. If that can be considered a spoiler, my apologies! Anyway, Ascension Day, as it is portrayed here, is created from a hodgepodge of accounts--I have never celebrated a Saint Day in Malta, so let's just call it fiction and leave it at that, shall we? The Maltese is accurate to the best of my knowledge.
