Wandering // Naruto


Title: Green
Fandom: Bleach
Characters: Orihime, Ulquiorra (and a little of Tatsuki, Ichigo, and Chad and the obligatory onesided IchiHime thing that shows up so much in this series).
Genre: Introspective; it was originally meant to be shipfic, but could apply equally to friendshipping.
Rating: G
Wordcount: 1773 Lol, why did I never include wordcount before? [/fails]
Warnings: Obviously the implied spoilers of anything set in the Hueco Mundo arc, but nothing else.
Summary: Even the strongest walls come down eventually, and sometimes the only way to accomplish such a feat is simply to talk. A sketch of the first time Ulquiorra started to think about Orihime differently.
Disclaimer: Don't own; don't sue (and so forth)
A/N: This ended up as a theory on how Ulquiorra could have a meaningful relationship with... anybody actually, given his personality. I love the guy, but his complete "flatness" in the way he behaves makes him difficult to ship for me-- so I wanted to see how that could be worked around. And I'm glad I decided to write this now since my poor ship may very well be sinking.

welled up inside you like tears, and you woke.

Title: Learning to Drown
Fandom: Naruto
Characters: Konan/Nagato!Pein (...Well and all that is P/K in general)
Genre: Angst, introspective, hurt/comfort
Rating: R? Maybe? We'll just round up and say R.
Wordcount: 4286
Warnings: Medical/illness-related squickiness, Akatsuki spoilers, mentions of past sexings, past character death and one soon-to-be-dead baby, very off religious stuff, and just general depressingness and creepiness.
Summary: [Fic for the theory that the Nagato body is in a coma] The soul was like origami: you had to crease it and contort it to make it flower. You had to break it-- and what broke Konan was Nagato.
Disclaimer: I'm glad to say that I am not Kishi and therefore do not own.
A/N: Another must-write-before-it's-uncanon fic because the real Nagato is totally sitting in a wing back chair somewhere with a Persian cat in his lap, snorting coke and giggleshitting himself to death.

Today it rains corazón, it’s raining
and for me, life hurts.

Uchihas // Naruto


Title: Here and Gone
Fandom: Naruto
Characters: Itachi-centric
Genre: Introspective, gen
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 847
Warnings: Itachi spoilers
Summary: He only likes dango because it reminds him of something he has long since lost.
Disclaimer: Nope.
A/N: I just wanted there to be a reason for the dango fixation. Otherwise it was just Kishi's way of making this fandom even more crack-tastic. Btw, machine table is a term used in the philosophy of consciousness; it's associated with the idea that there is no true consciousness, only a set of behaviors to be applied to any given stimulus.
