Fanfiction! Whoot!  
Title: Secrets
Author: ekas
Fandom: Horitsuba
Rating: Kurogane/Fai
Character(s): Kurogane, Fai
Prompt: 4. Sex
Warnings: Angst
Notes: None

“It’s a secret, Kuro-sama,” Fai would murmur between heated kisses while running his hands feverishly across Kurogane’s slick skin. “You mustn’t tell any one about this.” Kurogane generally took little heed of the science teacher during those moments, which were quite frequent, almost every time they had sex and occasionally when Fai would pull him into a storage closet for a brief kiss. Kurogane did not have any one he wised to tell; he did not believe his personal life was any one else’s business. He and Fai were sharing something physical and no one else at the school had a right to know about it.

Yet still the rumors persisted, whispers he overheard among the students, the staff, even the other teachers. They talked about it during their lunch break, in between classes, and during after-school activities. He and the science teacher had often been featured in the opinion column of the student run newspaper. From what he understood, there was even a college group dedicated to dissecting the evidence. The members meet bi-weekly to exchange stories of what they had witness the teachers doing and what it implied for their relationship. He always grew irritated when he heard the rumors, but Fai had never seemed to care, often encouraging the rumors by standing closer to Kurogane when curious students were loitering around. The easiest way to get rid of the rumors would be to actually openly declare their relationship, which Kurogane was reluctant to do, and Fai was completely insistent about keeping their relationship a secret.

In fact, Fai seemed to thrive on the rumors. When people were talking more, especially on days something was printed in the newspaper, Fai would kiss him in places where they might possibly get caught and touch him in highly inappropriate spots for school property. On those nights, Fai would come to his apartment and after briskly greeting the gym teacher, would pin him somewhere and start taking his clothes off. The science teacher would be exceptionally frisky on those evenings, playing games with Kurogane for hours before going home or occasional falling asleep in the gym teacher’s bed, sweaty and exhausted and giving all appearances of being perfectly satisfied.

Still, the school occasionally found other things to talk about, like when the chairlady was arrested for a DUI, and the two of them would be forgotten about for a few days. During the dry spells, instead of attempting to be closer to Kurogane, Fai would act as if he was completely uninterested in him, avoiding him while on school property and making a point not to look at him. At which point, rumors would eventually start that the two of them were in a fight and had broken up. After that, the fire would return to Fai, and Kurogane could expect a passionate night in his apartment as they “made up.”

At first, Kurogane didn’t worry about Fai’s changes in behavior because he knew the science teacher would eventually resume giving him what he wanted. Yet every night Fai whispered “It’s our secret,” while lying in his embrace. Kurogane began to wonder how much of their secret was truth and how much was just a rumor from the students, given encouragement by Fai who simply adored being talked about. Kurogane had not concerned himself with any of those thoughts when they had just been having sex, but as Kurogane found himself drawn closer to Fai, he feared making their relationship real would only destroy it.

Awww, Horitsuba fanfic. <3

Even if I somehow can't wrap my mind around this characterization of Fai (but on the other side, the more I think about it, the better I seem to understand it, so uhh...) I think it's a very interesting idea. :D I liked it. ^^

I like playing around with different ideas to see if I can actually make a particular characterization work with a character. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but either way I consider it to be good practice, and much less boring to my readers than if I decided to write both of them the same way every single time. With as much as I've written, I can see how writing them the same way every time would quickly get boring.

Yes, I can understand that. The characterization just struck me as kind of... I don't even know a word, at first sight. But while writing my comment (and after that) when I actually thought about it, I understood it better (and I think I already said that, um...).
Um, but it's interesting and now that story made me think more than most stuff I read recently. <3

Oh Fay-sensei why are you so complicated??? ç___ç
Probably you're getting bored with my continous externation of my deep love for your Horitsuba, but I can't really help it, I LOVE YOUR PRODUCTIONS!!! <3
E'ka: Horitsuba Fai Contentekas on October 23rd, 2007 10:20 pm (UTC)
Because Fai is a complicated man. ^^

Express your adoration as much as you please. I live off of reviews as much as Fai lives off the rumors.

Oh Fai, you twisted lil...exhibitionist. D:

Can we expect a new installment of Horitsuba Chronicles and/or the model fic in the near future? ;3; *hopeful puppy-eyes*
E'ka: Fai Hugekas on October 23rd, 2007 10:26 pm (UTC)
For Horitsuba Chronicles, I think I need to find another installment to write other than Extra Benefits II as I'm currently not feeling the inspiration to write that fic and trying to write is just massively turning me off.

I am still plugging away at the model fic. It's long... I've been working on birthday requests... and Final Fantasy XII, I am forced to admit, has eaten my soul.
Lexi: Fai - disenchantedlexi_nyanko on October 23rd, 2007 10:32 pm (UTC)
Mmmm, can I give you ideas? The Fai/Yuuko affair? Or the Kuro/Souma one? I was always wondering what and how did things really happened then...o.o Especially with the first two since...I STILL can't imagine it, lol. Yuuko is such a SEME! xDD

Well, the fact that the model fic is LONG is already more than promising! *3* Will sit back and wait patiently then~ <3

Ah, FF12...*wants*
E'ka: Soumaekas on October 23rd, 2007 10:52 pm (UTC)
Kurogane/Souma might be promising... *thinks about it*

Yes, model fic is turning out to be rather long. Plus add the real life stuff of a 40 page paper on top of my original writing and fan stuff.

Final Fantasy XII is made of much win.

w00t new horitsuba fic! Fai has to be one of the most complex characters I've ever come across, and you portray him so well as usual. ^^

Poor Kuro-sensei just can't help falling for him. XD
