2 stories within 24 hours! I am made of awesome!  
Title: Pick Me Up
Author: ekas
Theme: 2. Pick Me Up
Fandom: Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle
Pairing: Kurogane/Mokona
Word Count: 496
Disclaimer: I don't own the characters. I also decided to refer to Mokona as "she" as it was easier, and the white one does wear the female uniform in Horitsuba. Oh, this is sheer and utter fluff.

From the very beginning, Mokona had decided that Kurogane was special. He was sulky and big and far too easy to traumatize in those early days. Mokona had immediately developed a soft spot for Kurogane, a soft spot that had gradually evolved into a deep attachment which led her to constantly try to capture the ninja’s attention. Sure the others were special as well: Sakura was soft to cuddle with and gave her sweets, Syaoran would dote on her whenever necessary, and Fai was Fai, playful, affectionate, cuddly, a good partner in crime when it came to teasing Kurogane, and good for kisses when the ninja was clearly not the kissing type. Mokona was also aware that Fai was her biggest rival in gaining Kurogane’s attentions as the ninja spent a good deal of his time yelling at or chasing down the mage. But she never really felt threatened by Fai as the mage could not crawl around in Kurogane’s clothes and the human versus not-human argument never crossed her mind. She was not exactly sure when her attachment to Kurogane had grown into something akin to human love, but she did know the warrior was special to her in the way Syaoran was special to Sakura.

The current world they had landed in was caught in a torrential downpour, the ground already covered in an inch or two of water, and within a few minutes the humans’ clothes were soaked and clinging to their bodies. Without finding a proper shelter, they all huddled together under a tree which didn’t help the fact that Mokona was standing in far too much water for her comfort. She tried to scramble up Kurogane’s leg, but his clothes were too slick and she only got to his knee before sliding back to the water with a small splash.

“Kuro-rin, pick me up?” she asked, latching her paws onto his boot. If she sat on his feet, she was out of the water, but she wanted to be closer to him. Touching booted feet was so impersonal. Kurogane seemed to ignore her.

“Mokona, Sakura-chan and I will hold you,” Fai offered, extending his hand to her from where he was pressed tightly against Kurogane’s side. Fai was warm, but she really wanted Kurogane to hold her.

“Kurogane, pick me up,” she begged, trying to jump onto his clothes again. “If Mokona gets washed away by the rain, we won’t be able to travel anymore.”

“Tch, so troublesome,” he complained as he bent down to scoop her into his arm. She sighed as she snuggled into the crook of his muscular arm. She thought it might not be so bad to continue traveling with them as long as she could be with the family and get occasional attention from the brooding ninja. He made her happy.

Even though Fai might be the mother and Kurogane might be the father of their little family, Mokona had no objections to being Kurogane’s mistress.

This is SO wrong and I love it so much. <3 Little Mokona, smooching with Fai and molesting Kurogane. It's adorable.

Many people have seen the wonders of Pimpkona as of late. I expect we'll see more Mokogane fic in the future.

Last line killed me dead! <3

That was awesome in such a weird way. Well done.

Aaw, cute. It was sweet.

And then the last line made me go "OW" xD
E'ka: gloatingekas on November 11th, 2006 03:08 pm (UTC)
The last line was sheer brillance. It was the longest part of the story to write because I wanted it to have that special kind of impact.

Ditto on the Pimpkona note, OMG!

Oh noes
Since the last scene in C122 made Larg x Soel canon, Mokona would be cheating on Mokona!

That would be a very special Jerry Springer episode eh?

No matter how well it's written (or how cute and funny it is), Mokona/Kurogane will continue to be WRONG XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD - besides *points to icon*

(... I've just wandered here because I was just interested in HoriTsuba fanfiction writers so please forgive me for my... not so open XD;)
After reading the first paragraph, I agree with everyone... the Kuro/Mokona was so wrong, I could only add my vote to the famous Pimpkona comment. XDD Whahaha, kissing Fye, while trying to feel up Kuro. Bad, bad sneaky puff Mokona. XDD
And the last line... definitely killed me! XDD Will continue to read your other fics :333

OMG that last line is just brilliant!

And I think it's cute. ^_^
ユウイsnowaltz on November 11th, 2006 10:35 am (UTC)
Okay, I decided to give this a try. Much that the last line sounds a bit wrong, it was a nice read =P And yeah, I can imagine Mokona liking Kurogane. After all, brooding sexy ninjas do have their charm =D
E'ka: TomoyoKendeppaekas on November 11th, 2006 03:07 pm (UTC)
The last line is sheer brillance, brillance I tell you! Besides, we all know that Mokona is Fai's mistress as well. ^.~

After all, brooding sexy ninjas do have their charm =D
No one can resist the power of Kurogane, not even Mokona. Or Ass Chin. Ass Chin is so going to develop a crush on Kurogane and will start cloning him. *gets shot*

I am glad you decided to read it though. Thanks a bunch. ^.^
ユウイ: Kurogane/Faisnowaltz on November 11th, 2006 03:17 pm (UTC)
What/who is ass chin? Mokona's nickname?

Oh, I found something interesting from the Tsubasa chara guide vol 1. This if from the "talk with Fai as Cat Eye owner". I have the Chinese version so I'll try to do translation.

In the talk between Mokona and Fai, Mokona said that she (I haven't decide whether Mokona is a he/she/it) wants to be Kurogane's good friend and Fai gave Mokona 5 tips.

1. Include a heart shape in Kurogane's bento lunch.
2. Knit a scarf for Kurogane.
3. Have a bath together and help Kurogane rub his back.
4. Whisper sweet nothings to Kurogane while in bed at night.
5. Wake Kurogane up in the morning with a kiss.

You know, I wonder if these advice are already tested by Fai before he gave them to Mokona *laughs*
E'ka: TomoyoKendeppaekas on November 11th, 2006 04:00 pm (UTC)
Asschin is the fun way of referring to FWR... (Can't spell his name without reference.)

1. Include a heart shape in Kurogane's bento lunch.
2. Knit a scarf for Kurogane.
3. Have a bath together and help Kurogane rub his back.
4. Whisper sweet nothings to Kurogane while in bed at night.
5. Wake Kurogane up in the morning with a kiss.

Good friend or lover? O.o Maybe Fai can't do these things so he wants to live vicariously through Mokona.

I knew they were having sex in the bathtub.

So does this mean Kurogane isn't a virgin? *is confused*
ユウイsnowaltz on November 11th, 2006 04:02 pm (UTC)
And I thought I'm the only one who always get FWR's name mixed up =P I can't imagine Mokona knitting though.
E'ka: gloatingekas on November 11th, 2006 05:10 pm (UTC)
It's paws are far too tiny to knit...

And now I have mental images of Kurogane trying to relax and take a bath and all of a sudden someone starts washing his back and he flips out because Fai secretively slipped into the tub with him.
ユウイ: Kurogane/Faisnowaltz on November 11th, 2006 05:19 pm (UTC)
You can a) write another "Bathtime Fun", b) reread it or c) stare at lexi_nyanko Kurogane/Fai in bathtub fanart =D

um......HUH?? xDDDD wth lol!!
Lexi: Bra-chan's avatar xDlexi_nyanko on November 11th, 2006 08:23 pm (UTC)
Cutest pairing ever. xD lol~ <33

Btw I keep wonder about this one thing: on one of the splash pages in one of the latest volumes featuring Mokona there was a text on the picture saying something like "Mokona hasn't fully awakened yet"...now I wonder what Mokona will look like when she turns into her "true self". I hope it'll not be some weird beast like Kero-chan from C.C.Sakura. x_X;; I know it's a vain hope...but it'd be TEH LOVE if the white and the black Mokona would turn into human (let's say genderless, like Ashura), no? :3
