Summary: Kurogane wears Fai's coat.
Author's Notes: For laliho, who wanted to see Kurogane wearing Fai's big white fluffy coat.

Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle fanfic100 table can be found here.

The world they landed in was colder than any other they had been to previously, complete with snow which Fai had the infuriating habit of randomly tossing at him when he wasn’t paying attention. To make matters worse, the stupid white manjuu had somehow managed to lose his cape within the deep recesses of its mouth. He gritted his teeth and kept walking resolutely forward when another glop of the white powdery stuff impacted with his bare arm.

“Ah, Kuro-sama’s no fun. You’re supposed to play in the snow,” a lilting voice called from a reasonably safe distance. Safe in that the man was very far away and would be limited as to what he could do to torment the ninja. He would not sink to throwing fluffy white stuff at a lanky fruit taunting him. Until the mage raced up and shoved a handful of snow down the front of his pants before racing away again. Kurogane heaved a rather hefty snowball at the idiot. He blamed the mage’s massive evasive power as the reason why he missed, and not the fact that he had thrown it a little too far to the left. Then he tried to chase down the annoying bastard, ducking snowballs periodically as Fai turned around to lob them at the pursuing ninja.

Luckily, while the two adults were busy playing their games, Syaoran had spotted a range of cliffs in the distance he hoped would be able to provide them shelter for the evening. He led Sakura to them, assuming their other two companions would figure out what was going on eventually.

They ended up staying in a small cave, just big enough for the five of them and a fire Syaoran had made after gathering some of the driest driftwood in the area. Damn, it was cold, and Kurogane was doing everything he could to keep the others from knowing how freezing he really was. And the wet spot in his pants was making him highly uncomfortable, and he sat as close as he could to the fire to dry his crotch as quickly as possible, every so often glaring at the blonde responsible who merely giggled and stretched his dry body further in front of the fire. Stupid mage.

After the kids were fast asleep, curled under their blankets which Mokona could find very easily, and the fire had burned low, Kurogane felt the cold more than ever before, making sleep elusive. He shuddered and rubbed his arms with his hands, wincing at how cold his own flesh felt. He always knew the white thing was suspicious, and now the damn thing was trying to kill him by way of hypothermia. He was going to kill the it if he actually survived the night.

“Here. We don’t want Kuro-sama to catch a cold.” Something warm and heavy slipped around his shoulders, and light fingers lingered slightly longer than he was comfortable with. Still, the hands were warm and when they slipped from his shoulders to the still uncovered part of his arms, caressing and warming with soothing touches, he suddenly wanted those hands elsewhere on his body like they had been another cold and lonely night in a country without the children.

But the hands left so quickly it was like they had never been there. Kurogane shrugged the thick material off his back. “I don’t want your damn coat,” he told the mage flatly. It smelled too much like him.

“Why not, Kuro-chan? It will keep you warm.” Fai tilted his head to the side as if to say his explanation was flawless and there was no way Kurogane could argue against it. Because memories of warm nights in a shared bedroll only kept one warm until reality came rushing back.

“Because I don’t want to be a sissy fruit,” almost raising his voice to the point of waking the children. He was surprised he hadn’t.

It was the mage’s job to be light and carefree, a being entirely outside Kurogane. Really, he would much rather have the fruit beside him then a part of him.

“Is your pride really more important than your health, Kuro-my?” the man asked with a lopsided grin, and the ninja knew he was plotting something.

Still, he nodded gruffly, hoping the mage would take the hint and leave him alone. The next thing he knew the waif had tackled him with the coat in one hand in an effort to put it back on the warrior. Kurogane fought back, placing them into a few awkward situations he would have been glad to take advantage of had the mage not been so insistent about putting clothes on him. He soon realized, however, that victory in this instance might bring death, so he eventually submitted and allowed the thin blonde to force him into the fluffy white coat, though he made it as difficult as he could for the man.

Kurogane looked down at the sleeves with thinly veiled disgust as he sat back up. He reclined back against the wall, pulling the coat tighter in an effort to block the sudden shill that had crept into his chest. He was aware Fai was watching him with a self-satisfied grin on his face, most likely making a permanent mental image of the strong warrior wearing the fruffy coat. He shuddered as the chill in his chest spread throughout his entire body, and the pulled the coat even tighter around him. He would not turn to look at the mage who he was sure would make some comment if he did; he continued to stare unblinkingly into the fire before him.

He was afraid if he blinked he might realize the only one staring at him was Souma with a worried look on her face as he sat against the Nihon palace wall wearing a giant fluffy white coat.

Thanks for commenting. Yes, I'm convinced Tomoyo sends Souma to spy on Kurogane to give her all the dirt.

That must be the best author's comment ever XD

Oh good. One of my objectives in life it to be able to make my own fangirls cry someday.

I'm serious.

Thanks for the comments!

::clears throat::

Wow, I seriously wasn't expecting you to finish my request so soon. It was definitely a nice surprise when I woke up this morning and checked my friends list to find a ficlet that was dedicated all to me, so thank you very, very much for writing it! ::mad huggles::

Ufufu, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Fai had set up Mokona to accidentally-on-purpose lose Kurogane's cloak, and it always amuses me to see Sakura and Syaoran displaying the kind of maturity that Kurogane and Fai so often lack.

And yeah, I still adore the mental image of Kurogane in Fai's fruit coat. If only I could draw...

Thank you once again for writing this, and I hope to be finished with your request ASAP~! ♥

The plot bunny for this fic bit me and wouldn't leave me alone, putting about three other fanfics and all original fiction on hiatus until I got it out of my system. Plus I was lucky enough to have a day off work. ^.^

I think we need to make a request of a fan-artist to give us a picture of Kurogane wearing Fai's coat.
Wrenfengtianshi on July 16th, 2006 01:04 am (UTC)
Absolutely love it! Kuro-chu in Fay's fluffy coat is an image I would gladely pay my soul to see!

Heheh, I bet Kurotan looks adorable in Fay's coat <3 Cute story ^_^

Ugh, LJ is being an arse and messing up my HTML skillz, so allow me to apologise for the double post. Anyhoo, the Fai seme fic is going to take me a little while longer to finish, so here's something to tide you over until then:

Ta da~!

Enjoy. ♥
