Post 148 fic I wrote Monday.  
Title: Comfort
Fandom: Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles
Characters: Kurogane/Fay
Prompt: 044. Circle
Word Count: 379
Rating: K
Summary: Kurogane's reaction to Fay in the aftermath of Chapter 148.
Author's Notes: Spoilers ahoy! Also, will most likely be proven to be AU very shortly.

Kurogane still wasn’t even sure what had happened. Everything had been moving so fast: one moment he had been holding onto Fay’s arm to keep him from running away, and in the next blood was splattering everywhere and the mage had a sword driven through the princess’ body wearing a shocked expression. He could not believe that Fay knew what had happened either, and he certainly did not want to ask the blonde about it. That would only make the situation worse, and none of them needed that, especially not Fay. Fay was in need of something else, something only he could give him at the moment considering the state of the princess and the manjuu was being consoled by Syaoran.

He did not say his name as he approached him, he did not say anything to announce his presence, and Fay still turned to look over his shoulder at him. The blonde didn’t speak to him either; he just looked at Kurogane for a brief moment before turning around the other way. That look had been enough for him to realize that Fay did not want him there, much as he needed to be comforted. He did not want it to be from the ninja. He should have been used to the mage’s cold behavior, but he had been hoping that something was starting to change. Besides, he couldn’t leave the mage like that when he was clearly blaming himself. He had to know that somebody didn’t blame him, and Kurogane couldn’t after he had seen the shock in the mage’s eye.

Ignoring the blonde’s signals that he wanted to be left alone and his own mind telling him he would only be hurt more if he did not distance himself from the situation, he took the few remaining steps forward. He stood directly behind Fay, and he circled his arms around the man’s thin body. The mage tensed in his arms briefly, but he didn’t struggle to get away. Kurogane sighed and buried his face in the blonde hair, wrapping his arms tighter around the man when he felt Fay’s hands come up to rest gently on his arms. He planned on staying there with the blonde in his arms for as long as Fay needed him.

...........;________; *sobs* you made me want to cry all over again....

I can only imagine the agony that's going to torment Fai in the next don't-know-how-many chapters....good god...

That's why Kuro-snuggles needs to be there to comfort him, right? ^.~
Lexilexi_nyanko on March 28th, 2007 09:31 pm (UTC)
Yep. ;3; Kuro-snuggle is the best remedy against nasty chilhood memories and unintended bloodshed. >.

Well, sometimes we need a little AU to ease the angst, right? Thanks for the well-written therapy^_~

*sobs* Oh god... ;_;
E'ka: Kurogane sacrificeekas on March 29th, 2007 12:36 am (UTC)
*pets pets pets* It will be okay.

I think this may be my new favorite less than 1000 word fic.

thanks for the theray queen doc!!!
but i think they can take him away and left Xiao with saku in order to save her but it could be so good he could embrazes him and takes fay pain away!!!

That's deeply lovely... I wish something like this will happen, but I fear things will get worse now on...ç___ç
Still... this fic is pure love! Kurorin is the most adorable person in the worlds!!! ç___ç
E'ka: Vampireekas on March 29th, 2007 12:42 am (UTC)
I'm vastly afraid they're going to get separated soon, hence the warning that it will most likely become AU very, very soon.
Wrenfengtianshi on March 29th, 2007 09:36 pm (UTC)
Eh... you're probably right... but since Sakura can't die (now) and Fay just has to kill her, I hope they'll get separated into Syaoran+Sakura (because I think he'll try to save her... I hope it!!! Oo) and Kuro+Fay+Mokona... And since they can't really be separated for too long, someone has to fix Fay's problem along the way!
...Too optimistic? XD
vinvalvinval on March 29th, 2007 05:04 am (UTC)
i think that may have been just as much for Kurogane as for Fai...

...ah, so lovely. just read the chapter and died a little inside, but this helped sooth. :)
seresunokokoro on March 29th, 2007 05:18 am (UTC)
Thanks, I really needed that - without even knowing...
But knowing CLAMP what we get in the next chapter would be more angsting, suspicion, self-loathing and Ohkawa only knows what =/

*listens to 'Slide' by the Goo Goo Dolls*

... *sob*

That is just...

Though, the chances that this will be AU are indeed extremely high. Right now, I'm betting Fay is going to panick and grab Freya's hand, thereby fleeing to another dimension (which would be Celes).
E'ka: Freyaekas on March 29th, 2007 06:59 pm (UTC)
Except I'm wondering if the feather was what allowed Freya to transport people between dimensions in the first place, which means she just lost that power.
Meowzy No-Last-Name: Kyle-nailmeowzy_chan on March 29th, 2007 07:03 pm (UTC)
Hmm... I forgot about that one. Yeah, I guess that does leave them with a dillema.

Fay: *grabs Freya's hand*
*small silence follows*
*another silence*
Fay: ... Huh. Okay, now I just feel stupid.
*meanwhile, Syaoran is shaking Sakura's body in the background and Kurogane is trying to decide what to do next*

Kurogane is crying in the corner because Fay attacked him.

You know, hugging from behind is one of my favourite comfort scenes. The last paragraph was beautiful.
Pistachiokitto_kun on April 2nd, 2007 03:38 pm (UTC)

I love it. Very sad, and confusion.

Probably because I haven't gotten to chapter 148 yet.

Still, lovely.
