15pairings fic - Yuuko/Kurogane  
Title: Wishful Thinking
Author: ekas
Theme: 13. "What a Waste"
Fandom: Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle
Pairing: Yuuko/Kurogane
Disclaimer: I don't own them, Tsubasa, or xxxHolic
Notes: I should read more xxxHolic to get a better grasp of Yuuko. She seems a little... off to me. I think it might be the kiss, but I shall leave it in there anyway. Includes speculations on Kurogane's sexuality.
Warnings: Yuuko perving on Kurogane. Oh, and vague spoilers for recent chapters of Tsubasa and xxxHolic.

The ninja was still sleeping when Mokona deposited him on her storeroom floor, shirtless except for the bandages for the wounds on his back. He slept as still as Mokona had described, her only indication that he was still alive was the steady rise and fall of his stomach. She studied his sleeping from for a few minutes, Mokona sitting on her shoulder now that his part was temporarily finished. Tanned skin was stretched tightly over defined muscles. He left hand with the scar glowing eerily in the dim light was curved as if he had been holding onto something in his sleep before she had transferred him to her shop. The harsh lines in his face seemed in sharper relief than ever given the recent trauma of his life. His spiky hair looked surprisingly soft, and she had the strongest desire to touch it.

His left hand twitched as it realized whatever it was he had been holding onto was no longer in his grasp. Crimson eyes shot open, and the warrior sat up and began looking around him frantically.

“Good morning, Kurogane!” she interjected cheerfully before the ninja really began to panic and destroy her storeroom. She needed most of those things. The angry eyes finally settled on her, and she felt a small fire igniting in her veins. “I hope you don’t mind, but Watanuki needs some rest and I need some work done.”

“Send me back,” he ordered in a low growl, and she was amused that he actually believed he could intimidate her. “What if he wakes up and needs me? Send me back now.” She liked his defiant red eyes; she had become so accustomed to easily convincing people to do what she wanted them to. It had been such a very long time since anybody had refused her so boldly. She had been starting to think no one ever would again. “If anything happens to him because you’ve kept me here-“

“Relax,” she said, patting him on the shoulder in an effort to calm him. His skin was cool against her palm. “Just do a few chores for me, and I’ll have you back long before he wakes up.” She could see the mistrust lingering in his eyes. She moved her hand and placed a finger under his chin. “Of course, I won’t send you back until you do the chores for me. In the meantime, he’ll have to suffer without you, writhing in agony.”

“You wouldn’t dare,” he countered. “It’s against your principles to cause the death of another.” He sounded convinced, but she had already seen the doubt and concern flash through his eyes.

“Either way, I’m not going to send you back until you do a few chores for me.” She trailed her fingers down to his neck before pulling her hand away. “So, the sooner you get them done, the sooner we can send you back.”

“What do you want me to do?” She was amused by the resignation in his voice, though slightly disappointed he was not doing it because he wanted to help her. Though he hardly seemed like the type to willingly offer his services to somebody.

“Can you move everything in this area to this one?” pointing to each respective portion of the room. She noted the worried way he glanced at the crates and random items. “Don’t worry. Once you get started, you’ll find it’s much easier than it looks.”

She watched as he picked up a box from the nearest shelf, muscles rippling in his arms, and transferred it to the other side of the storeroom. “Mokona, look at that body,” she said once he was sufficiently distracted by his task. “I would like to do things to that body.” She could almost imagine the larger, tan body writhing beneath hers as the ninja whimpered and gasped. It was probably for the best that he did not know she was thinking about him like a piece of meat… or livestock. “Kurogane, I’m going to leave you here for a bit.” She was not sure if the ninja heard her, he seemed so focused on his task; she wondered if he put that type of determination into the bedroom as well.

“Ah, Maru, Moro, we have a guest for dinner this evening. Do you think you can make something traditional since Watanuki still isn’t quite feeling himself?”


“Mokona, you help them, too.” The black creature on her shoulder nodded and followed the other two to the kitchen. She went to her bedroom to change her clothes and reevaluate her plan of action.

She had been wearing one of her kimono, thinking it would make the ninja more comfortable and possibly get him to notice her. Since both accounts had undeniably failed, she needed to change into something that would be more likely to capture his attention. She wondered if such a thing possibly existed as she finally decided on a pair of tight pants and a low-cut shirt. She realized from that man she was probably not going to get any more attention from him even if she was naked.

When she got back to the storeroom, he had just gotten to his old sword. She watched him from a safe distance as he picked it up and looked at it forlornly for a moment. “You can have it back as payment for helping me today,” she said, startling him to the point that he almost dropped the sword.

“I don’t need it anymore,” he replied gruffly, putting the sword away in it’s new location. She had not really wanted to part with that sword anyway. It was pretty, and she might be able to give it to somebody some day.

She tried not to smile when he hesitated at the mage’s tattoo. “Just pick it up,” she instructed, but inwardly she wondered how much of the hesitation was caused by him not knowing what to make of the thing and how much was caused by him thinking about the blonde. She watched him work for a good hour or so, muscles twitching under her gaze though he did not acknowledge her. At one point, he stopped and stretched, and suddenly the room felt very hot to her. They just did not make men like that anymore. It was a shame she had to import them from other worlds.

He seemed surprised when he turned around to find nothing else waiting for him. “I told you it would not take as long as you thought it would. Now I have room for my stuff again!” He gave her a disgruntled glared at that comment. “You should take a shower before you go back so no one gets suspicious about where all the sweat came from.” Sweat she had been watching trace the curves of his muscles for the past hour.

He nodded, and she showed him to the shower room. Mokona came and jumped on her shoulder as she partially closed the door. “Yuuko, dinner is ready whenever you’re done.”

“Excellent.” She turned around to peak through the door. He had removed the bandages and his pants and was just about to step into the shower. She sighed appreciatively at the well-sculpted thighs and calves and was highly disappointed that she did not get the chance to see the front. “Mokona, look at that gorgeous body.” She briefly contemplated keeping him until she found a way to clone him.

With a sigh, she pried her eyes away from the sight of the water caressing the man’s muscles. “I should tell Maru and Moro to rewrap his bandages when he’s finished.”

“Yuuko doesn’t want to do? It would be a good excuse to touch that body.”

“No, Mokona, covering him up would be absolutely impossible for me to do.” But, oh, how she would love to help him out of his clothes. And then she would burn them.

She ended up finishing the dinner herself; some of it seemed a bit burnt. She just hoped the ninja would not notice too much.

“Oi,” he started, stepping into the room where she had set up their meal, “send me back now.”

“You need to eat first to replenish the energy you just lost. Remember, you’re eating for two now!”

With a ‘tch,’ he sat down across from her and picked up the chopsticks. She found it difficult to concentrate on her own meal, fascinated instead by the warrior’s mouth and wishing it were on her instead. He had still shown no signs of noticing her though. “Can I go back now?” he asked as soon as he was finished.

She could have invented reasons to keep him longer, but making him hate her was not the way to get what she wanted. She moved closer to him and placed her hand on his thigh. “First, I need to pay you for your work today.” She leaned over and kissed him fleetingly on the lips. “I can give you more if you want,” she told him suggestively.

“Send me back now.” She sighed and removed her hand from his thigh after giving it a light caress.

“Mokona, send the ninja back to his friends.” She downed her entire bottle of sake after he had been transported back, hopefully to where he had left from. “What a waste.”

“He managed to get a lot of work done,” Mokona said, hopping back onto her shoulder.

“I was referring to the fact that he seems to be completely asexual. It’s such a waste of a very good body.”

~Bah. This wouldn't even be posted where it not for my current obessions of trying to finish some of my claims.

*brain liquifies and seeps out ear* o_o

Kurorin...Yuuko... ...buh...

Written well, but...buh... o_o

Well, the idea behind 15pairings is to write 15 different pairings, so I decided I was going to do some that people might not have thought of before. ^.^

Yuuko/Fai might come into play eventually as well.

Besides, it's not like I haven't been threatening to write this fic. It was even mentioned in my little upcoming fics post. ^.^
Ally.C: Tsubasa Syao Necrogacktyougirl on October 20th, 2006 04:34 pm (UTC)
I knew it was coming, but it still broke my brain. xD

Fay/Yuuko... that would be a lot of joking flirting. A disturbing amount, methinks.
E'ka: Good Doggieekas on October 20th, 2006 04:49 pm (UTC)
I've just decided I so totally need an icon of Fai that says "I break people's brains." And he should be wearing a happy little smile.

*enjoys breaking people's brains, but will gladly repair them if it needs done*

Brilliant! It broke my brain, but I love it anyway! Very unusual pairing....although I can scarily see how it may work....
E'ka: Good Doggieekas on October 21st, 2006 12:55 am (UTC)
I so need that Fai "I break people's brains" icon. Desperately. And I don't feel like making it. *sadness*

Yuuko/Kurogane is made of win. She so wants to do things to him. Things that would make Fai jealous.

If you have any unusual pairings you would like to see, let me know. I still have 14 more to write for 15pairings and I want to fit a few more unusual ones in there. (Fai/Yuzuriha is so going to be one of them.)

I'll keep that in mind XD

*ears perk up*

Really? Because apparently I've been breaking brains and killing people all over today. ^.^

Hmm....has Kurogane/Mokona been done yet?

(Now that would be scary!
ECK: Ohevercool on October 21st, 2006 02:33 am (UTC)
Kurogane is so sexy not even Yuuko can resist!!! XDDD That's grand! I think you got Yuuko really well overall, except she's so overly confident and overly seductive in all that she does I can't imagine her trying to get someone's attention. She'd think she'd get it like *snap* without even having to try and then whine and dramatize if she didn't get it XD LOL. Mah this was a really fun read XDD The interlaces of Fai in it were also a nifty touch. Much love ♥
E'ka: canonrapeekas on October 21st, 2006 02:37 am (UTC)
But Kurogane has this sexuality issue which makes it very difficult for anyone to get his attention. Yuuko clearly must know this. XDDDD

Perhaps I should have had her whine more that she couldn't get it... Maybe that would have helped.
E'ka: TomoyoKendeppaekas on October 21st, 2006 05:23 am (UTC)
And... shhh... we can't let people know I subtley slipped Kurofai in here because that would mean I couldn't use them for any of my 15pairings and I wouldn't be able to use Fai/Yuuko either.
kz3ekz3e on October 21st, 2006 08:01 pm (UTC)
Holy sh.t, a Yuuko x Kuro fic! I love you for making this! Yuuko x Kuro is my favorite crack pairing. Both of them just ooze sexiness that one day I just put two and two together and all hell broke loose. I agree with your portrayal of Yuuko. Her wanton behavior clearly shows that she hasn't gotten any in a long time XD, so her eyes lingering appreciatively over Kurogane's body is justified! Also, if anyone could top Kuro permanently, it would be Yuuko. I could easily see Kurogane as her lap dog/bitch in the relationship. So, if somehow KuroFay doesn't work out (god forbid), the next best thing for me would be Yuuko x Kuro :P

Oh please tell me that's not just a random picture that someone drew but actually a dojinshi or something like that.

On a second thing, smexy fic. Yuuko m'dear, we understand your pain of that man being asexual. Dammit CLAMP make him make up his mind.
