Sword Art Online: The Rain in our Souls (serialized as The Rain in our Souls, and also written as TRioS) is an in-progress, alternate-timeline fan-fiction story written by 1caiser, under the alias Kai Socrius. The story is a revamp of Sword Art Online: Truth and Ideals, and uses the same elements and plot direction found in the said story—it follows former Laughing Coffin member Kai and his journey to the 100th Floor to defeat the boss that resides there and return the trapped SAO players to reality.


  • Genre: Adventure/Drama
  • Rating: T (Violence, Death, Language)
  • Alternate Timeline Summary

Laughing Coffin served two purposes for Kai: vengeance, and a home. But still, his deeds are left forfeit. Permanently branded an orange player, he could do whatever he wished. But, when an opportunity for redemption greets him, Laughing Coffin becomes nothing but a heaviness that is all but past. Alternative timeline. Rewrite for "Truth and Ideals".
