[A/N: I’ve been enjoying the new Love Live series a lot more than I expected. I have zero history with the game that Nijigasaki are in, so I knew next to nothing about these girls going in, but I’ve come to like them a lot. Love Live’s still got it.
Ayumu/Yuu quickly shot high up on my list of ships. I love couples with comfortable, intimate dynamics like that. See also Nanako/Yukari of Locodol. And I’ve been thinking it might be fun to try doing a story with them. So this is what I ended up with.
I was quite surprised to see how obvious they’re being with Ayumu’s signs of jealousy. Looking forward to see what they’re going to do with that, since I expect they wouldn’t keep putting it in if they weren’t going somewhere with it.
Props to them for wanting to make this show even more obviously gay than Sunshine was. I know there’s a subset of the fanbase that keeps denying there’s anything gay about this franchise, so maybe this one will finally convince them. Probably not, though. When you’re that stuck in denial, you’re probably never coming out of it.]
Today’s the day. The day that Uehara Ayumu would finally confess her love to Takasaki Yuu, and ask her out.
She had always been someone who struggled with putting herself out there, and every time she had considered taking this step, she had ended up telling herself that she could put it off for later. That there was no rush. They had always been together, so she could always wait a little longer.
But since they joined the school idol club at Nijigasaki, she had started to feel… pressured. Yuu was suddenly paying attention to more girls, and it made Ayumu feel uneasy. There was a sensation in her chest that welled up every time Yuu complimented someone else. Hugged someone else. As much as she hated to admit it, Ayumu felt jealous.
[A/N: So I saw this tweet, and the art really made me want to do another LL Sunshine fic. You is so hot, and I had the idea that anyone who saw her like that would probably feel the same. So I wanted to do something with it, and I believe I’ve said before that I have a huge soft spot for ChikaYou. It’s probably my favourite Love Live ship. The idea that Chika would remain oblivious until she saw You like that a few times was too good to pass up. I hope you like it.
Personal update: My recovery hasn’t been entirely smooth, but I feel a lot better, and hopefully the other issues will work out soon.]
Watanabe You woke up. This was a regular occurrence for her, even after starting college, though her morning routine had gone through a few changes. First she would get up, adjust her night trunks, loosen her bra, and pull on a shirt. Her mother claimed that wearing a bra to bed made it take longer for boobs to start to sag, and although You wasn’t sure about how correct that was, it had simply become habit. It would feel weird to sleep without, but she couldn’t deny it felt nice to set them free in the morning. It had been a long time since she slept in pajamas.
[A/N: Just a random short idea I had. I’ve touched upon this pair once before, and suddenly got an urge to do it again. It’s still rarepair week, right? I guess that’s my excuse. If you want to match SaayaTomoe, and ChisatoKanon, then these two would be left over, so to speak. Not that I’ve done either of the previous two ships in a while. Actually, I haven’t I’ve written my ChisaKanon story yet, have I? It’s still just an idea sitting around.]
In an unusual turn of events, the tennis clubs of Haneoka and Hanasakigawa high schools had decided to do a joint training camp. The club captains had had a chat, and thought it was a great opportunity to not only learn from each other, and change things up with new sparring partners, but also hold a mini tournament at the end with school pride on the line. Any rumours about anything else being at stake had not been confirmed.
But there were two members who had more important things on their minds. Namely each other.
[A/N: My first fanfic in a long time, and it’s not any of the many drafts that have piled up, but a daft idea I came up with a couple of days ago. What if Nanami Morfonica was Chisato and Aya’s daughter travelled back from the future?
To be fair I’ve had the impression ever since Morfonica was revealed that Nanami looks like the lovechild of Chisato and Aya. And since they’re not in EN Bandori yet, I don’t actually know anything about what the Morfonica members are actually like. I briefly skimmed their Bandori wikia entries, but I hardly did any extensive research. So I apologise in advance for getting Nanami’s character completely wrong (probably). This is totally just judging the book by the cover.]
It was time for another live concert for Pastel*Palettes. Well, almost time. They still had to get ready, and in an unusual twist there was a different band there as their opening act that day. It wasn’t the first time they’d played with another band, far from it, but it was the first time a band had been specifically hired to be their opening act. To Aya it seemed like a sign of how big they were getting. Only the popular bands had opening acts.
[A/N: The world is falling apart, but I still try to get a little bit of writing done when I can. Here’s more adult KasuAri, this time with kids (who are indeed named after K-On), and AsuRokka coming to visit.
I should warn you it’s a bit rough, but I’m basically in “better than nothing” mode. Also I couldn’t figure out how to properly end it, or continue it, then I got tired of dwelling on it, so it kinda just… ends.
I feel like I don’t even need to catch the virus to be in peril, the sheer stress about the state of the world might kill me anyway. I’ve been playing a lot of Atelier Ryza to try to take my mind off of things.]
“I’m heading out!”
“Out where, Yui?”
Kasumi poked her head into the entryway. “Okay. Take care.” She waved.
Yui waved back. “See you later, mommy.”
[A/N: March has not been a great month for creative inspiration and energy. Between the pandemic, family issues, and personal struggles it’s been too much stress and worry. But I finally managed to get a short thing done.
I’ve had this idea for a while, but actually writing it was a different matter. Hard to find the right time and motivation to do it. I’m happy to finally have something written, and I hope things will soon get easier again.]
“How’s this?” Byleth asked.
“Perfect, as always.”
It was a calm time for Edelgard von Hresvelg. The war felt like a distant memory by this point, even if they were still fighting a different kind of war. But as far as they could tell Those Who Slither In The Dark did not have much left. They’d seized a lot of their hideouts, taken down all the leaders they were aware of, even if those snakes surely had more they weren’t aware of. They’d even secured a lot of the very meticulous research notes the cult had made. Between Hanneman, Linhardt, and Hubert they’d managed to decipher ways to undo some of the harm that had been done. Edelgard had her lifespan restored, and naturally they had hurried to do the same to Lysithea. Seeing the girl die before her had been one of Edelgard’s big fears. She probably wouldn’t have lasted long herself, but all indications had been that Lysithea had even less time.
[A/N: Now that Training Camp is done I can write other things again, and I really wanted to get back to Bofuri. I’m not exactly writing on “current patch” as it were, since the anime is blazing ahead fast, and I had this idea weeks ago. I wanted to write something more action-focused with Maple and Sally working as a team. The anime has been sadly lacking in that since the second event ended, so if it won’t feed me, I’ll just have to serve myself. Weird to think that last time I did this I didn’t even know the names of Kanade, May, and Yui yet.
I’ve also read more of the novel, up until them reaching level three, so my writing is inspired from both that and the anime. I tried to find some middle ground between how fast the fights can be in the anime, and how slow they are in the novel. Some skills (and skill descriptions) I’ve taken from the character sheets in the novel and manga, some I use more as they’re presented in the anime, and at least one I entirely made up. I also added a bit to Acid Rain, since I don’t remember seeing it described anywhere that it has any sort of debuff effect, but since it’s acid it makes sense to me that it would lower defence.
Not much fluff this time, so I added an Iz/Kasumi scene at the end to compensate a little. I have some Maple/Sally fluff planned for next time.
Oh, and if you want more Bofuri, why not check out Kuugen’s fic “Social Skills”?]
The two of them were surrounded. Looked like a full party of eight. In all likelihood it was not a random ambush.
[A/N: It has been a while. I never intended to abandon Symphogear, but writing ideas are a fickle thing. I can’t just come up with what I want, for what I want, when I want. Things would be a lot easier if I could. I’ve had several false starts and abandoned ideas as I’ve tried to figure out where to take this thing. Not to mention everything else that has tempted me into being written elsewhere. But as the muses have been stirring since the start of the year, I figured the only way forwards was to move it forwards. Take them a step towards adulthood, and being a family.]
There was to be a party that night to celebrate Yukine Chris’s upcoming graduation, and Miku had come over to help Chris get ready. Which currently meant helping with her hair.
“Your hair is so lovely, Chris,” Miku said as she ran the brush through it. She had to lift it up to get at it properly, considering how long it was.
“Thanks.” Chris was hardly incapable of handling her own hair care, but it felt so much nicer to have someone else take care of it. It wasn’t the first time she had wondered if Miku’s skills were honed from trying to get Hibiki’s chaotic hair under control.
[A/N: So I had hoped that yesterday’s mini-lewd would get things out of my system, but it appears to have only made things worse. So here’s a very explicit NSFW lewd porn of Kasumi and Arisa.]
Toyama Arisa was faced with an impossible scenario.
“What is that?”
“Um… a dick.”
Arisa facepalmed. “I can see that, but why do you have it?” She’d heard her wife scream from the bathroom, and entered to find… this. It hadn’t been there the day before. She was fairly sure she would have noticed if it was.
[A/N: This idea formed a few days back, but I thought I should hold off until I finished the other project I’m working on. Then Kanan’s birthday hit, and the temptation became too great. The siren call of new fic ideas can be hard to resist.
This is inspired by a doujin I read last year that it’s been hard to get out of my head. Honestly a little surprised I haven’t done Chika/Kanan before, considering how into the whole ‘childhood friend’ thing I often get. I’m huge into Chika/You after all. But it was like my eyes weren’t really opened to it until I read that doujin. I’ve thought a lot about it since, so… here is the result of that.]
“Thanks for the help, Kanan-chan.”
“Haha, no worries,” Kanan said.
“For serious, though, I don’t think I’d have gotten this done without you,” Chika plopped down, and sighed. “I can’t believe my sisters would just dump this on me. ‘You can sort this out, Chika’,” she said, clearly mimicking her sister Mito.
“Hahaha, well, good kids are supposed to help out at home, right?” Kanan teased.
“Yeah, but…” Chika pouted.
