Ahh, the joys of cross-posting. XDD I signed up for IronMan Seven over on IJ, which is basically a challenge to create at least 50 words of fic five days out of seven every week for the next seven weeks, and to incorporate into those fics both the weekly theme and one of the seven weekly prompts, using a different prompt each time so that you ultimately use five prompts.


It's a little complicated, but it's a lot of fun. Anyway, I decided that since it wasn't crazy enough as it was, that I would also try not to repeat a fandom within any given week. To make a long story short, I have five different ficlets to share with y'all, from five different rather obscure fandoms. (I didn't do the obscure thing on purpose, I swear. It just kind of happened. XDD) Anyways, I'll be posting all of the fics here at the end of each week, though they'll be available one every day or so on IJ.

This week's theme was pain fic. The prompts didn't really lend themselves to physical pain, in my opinion, so it's a bit more emotional in terms of ow. I used Tales of the Abyss, Nana, Saiunkoku Monogatari, Kaze no Stigma, and Romeo x Juliet. And without further ado,

So lately I've been watching (and re-watching) Nana. Or at least, after I read HP & the DH. But everyone and their mother has made a DH post, so I don't feel the need to write one of my own. If anyone's curious, I enjoyed the book, on the whole. I'm curious as to whether or not there'll be any differences between the American and the British editions. As luck would have it, my dad happened to be passing through England on the 21st (and I mean this literally - he had a connection through Heathrow) and picked up a copy for me. SO COOL! ^___^ He's still away on business, but I'm excited for it. ... ::can feel [ profile] jeva_chan making zomg!hate faces:: I know, I'm spoiled. XD Sorry.

Anyways, Nana! I started watching this show and then the six-episode flashback made me want to scream, so I stopped watching it. A friend of mine, Danny, told me that the show was one of her favourites, though, so when I had some free time I figured I'd see if she was right about it getting better. And she was! XDD For those of you to whom it'll mean something, it made me cry. Actually, come to think of it, it made me cry a couple of times. Never on the level of Abyss or Fruits Basket, but somewhat more often then either, for what sense that makes. It's the sort of show that ought to be watched with a box of tissues. At least, for me. But then, I sympathize with Hachi, which makes that sort of thing a lot more likely. People who sympathize with Nana would likely cry less, I think. ::shrug::

Either way, it's got a very human feel to it, which is what I like about it. All of the characters, as much as they occasionally frequently do very very stupid things... they're doing the sort of stupid things that I can see myself doing / have done. Falling in love with the wrong person, thinking your in love when really you're not, saying precisely the wrong thing at the wrong time, getting yourself into a situation that looks awful even though it was completely innocent... Nana, for me, is a very honest anime.

So, there's this one scene in episode 24 or so that got stuck in my head and demanded ficlet. So there's ficlet.

Title: Like a Broken Rose
Fandom: Nana
Pairing: Takumi/Hachi
Rating: PG14
Warning: Slightly different style than I usually go in for, but it fit the mood, so I decided to leave it. Also for shortness. This is more ficlet than fic, but it's too long to be a drabble. XD

When they kissed, she looked at him like crying. )
