[Fic] Stalking the Angel (4/4)

Last Movement is now up here.

It was a terribly enjoyable, if self-indulgent, collaboration.  I must heap liberal praise upon kaorismash , as she did a much better job of matching my style than I did hers.  :D  Hope you've enjoyed it!  I'll be posting who wrote which parts in a couple of days, so you still have time to guess!  Now go read! \o/

Nonono, you matched mine while I matched yours and caused MASS CONFUSION AMONG THE GUESSERS given the way the guesses are. :D!!! Oh wait is it great confusion among the masses? Uh. Hm. :?

HERE HAVE A GIGANTIC HEART JUST 'CAUSE YOU'RE SHINY THAT WAY. *_* Am not sorry if it kills your page. :D!

Why do you write happy endings for every other couple except TezuRyo? Why???

Re: I am depressed
*laughs* Hey, I write happy TezRyo endings! Crimson Trails, A Traditional Ninja Romance, Prince of Warlocks, Takes Two to Tango, The Power of Gossip, The Dispossession of Echizen Ryoma... Aside from this one, the only longfic tragedies I can recall are The World Begins With Tennis and Technoromanticism, I've got about a 60% happy ending ratio! :D

This one was doomed, though, because Kaorichan is a lover of tragedy, and our love of tragedy combined... ;)

It is true, though, that I've been writing more dark fics than fluff lately.

Re: I am depressed
The angst overpowers the fluff. The ratio of fluff:angst should be 100:0.

I need happy TezuRyo endings. Right now.

*wanders off to read Takes Two to Tango which is, well, HAPPY*

The made me squeal, even though I have converted to the joys of the Royal Pair. *_* But I DID kinda see this happening. I mean, it would be kind of lame if the police and Rikkai just suddenly made up with each other-and Ryoma was shown as pretty unsavable from the beginning. And it would have been one thing if Ryoma actually HATED Rikkai. Though this fic still feels a bit incomplete. Epilogue?

Noooo, another Pillar fan lost to royal pair.... ^__^ Glad you enjoyed it. Though yes, it was a little predictable, but hey, that's what writing yourself into a corner is all about - there can only be one outcome without a deus ex machina. ;)

Ahaha, I never do eqilogues or sequels, you'll have to try Kaori for that one. ^__^ LOL, why is everyone commenting here instead of on the actual fic?

Oh come on, I bet that fic page has lots of comments too. But since this is where I got the update alert, this is where I post the comment XD

I knoooows. T^T But this fanfic totally convinced me and made me lose a bit of faith in pillar. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3940748/6/His_ex

I realized that Atobe's perverseness and possessiveness was the cutest of all. Of course I could have demanded thrill pair for that, but an annoyed Atobe is TEH GREATEST. They're the perfect couple to take themselves off the pedestals they see themselves on. I like the idea of equality in royal, and now I think Tezuka makes a better brotherly figure.

I SHOULD like the Perfect Pair, but the idea of Tezuka putting up with a sadistic Fuji is too much to actually stick in my head. And Fuji doesn't seem close enough to Ryoma for Thrill...

LOL Sorry for the rant. I get possessive on my ships.

I do believe this page has almost outstripped it! :P Ah well.

Oh, there's a lot of good to be had in Royal Pair, don't worry! I take no issue with your new OTP. (But... I may shed a tear. ;___;)

I definitely hear you! ^__^ Though I used to be more open to Thrill Pair until every single Pillar Pair story I posted on FF.net was met with demands for Thrill Pair. *rolls eyes*. Now I'll never ever write it just on priciple. :P

Yeaaah. The way I see it, the Ryoma yaoi pairings usually go like this
1. Pillar
2. Thrill
3. Royal
4. OT5

Don't worry, I still read pillar if it's REALLY well written (hence why I'm still stalking you :P)

It's done.

Err.

That means I just lost my excuse of not reading. ^^;; Gomen ne, Sinn-san; my muse is very noisy these days, and I don't do anything but write anymore. (Which is good, I guess, because I was dead to the world for, like, a year?)

Don't apologise! You don't actually have to read it, you know. ;) I don't expect that everything I write would be to your taste - or anyone's taste, really.

Writing is a much more productive use of time~!

Oh, nonononono. Of course I have to read it. It's your work. All of your works are awesomeness redefined. ♥♥♥♥ (And besides, it's not as much a question of preference as time. ^^;; It's been quite busy, end of the semester dead-heat and all, and coupled with a noisy muse -- well.)

...Are you EVER gonna write something that doesn't have an ending that makes me want to cry?
I mean, I saw the whole "now kill Tezuka" job coming, and Ryoma's death- the fact that it would be suicide as well- was obvious as well. But a girl can still HOPE for a happy friggin' ending for once, you know!!!
Sigh. I'll still keep reading your damned fics anyway, though.
...The Tezuka coming sfter Yukimura part DID thow me off kilter. Hadn't thought of it. Nice touch.

In my defence! http://sinnatious.livejournal.com/62125.html#cutid1

Hee, the part with Tezuka at the end was maybe my favourite part of the entire story, so I'm glad you liked it~! <3

It was so sad and at the same time so beautiful.
my favorite parts were:

"It was just holding hands. It was the most innocent thing in the world.
It shouldn’t have felt so profound, so important, even knowing the amount of blood staining the pale hand entwined with his."

"Never had he wished so much for time not to exist, for them to just stay in this moment,
away from reality in a sanctuary where they wouldn’t have to move on. Just, please, this one moment."

"Shh." Tezuka hushed him immediately by placing a finger to his lips.
His eyes were glazed with tears, his heart was aching, but Echizen must have been hurting more. It would hurt to talk; to breathe; to love."


Your story is touching. Ryoma made the right choice.
