Did my fic for the uruai fanfiction challenge! I was given three prompts and had to pick one. The story I ended up with, I intended to be standalone from any previous Kai X Uruha stories I'd done - except it could, conceivably, be Stargazer-verse.I had never dealt with how the couple's relationship began (or, rather, how they went from friends-with-benefits to lovers in every sense of the world) explicitly in this series, just hinted that it happened in the middle of the Venomous Cell tour.

Oh, and I had a muse try to run away with the fic again. Yes, there's been an epidemic of "Y hallo there, Boots, we're just going to hijack the story from you. You think you're in control, think again." This time, it was Uruha, and it happened about halfway through. The results were hot, but I had to push the story back toward meeting the prompt.

By the way, I can't take credit for the slogan that Kai imagines for a "Pinocchio Room" of the Jessica Rabbit Hotel. Some time ago, I was working for a newspaper where I was in charge of compiling a weekly historical column - going through the newspaper's archives and noting what happened in the community 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 and five years ago, as well as one year ago. This required going through a lot of old of old papers. Well, I happened to note that in the 1970s, papers openly carried ads for pornos. I kid you not. None of them were explicit, but yeah, you'd have a drawing of a scantily clad woman, a teasing slogan and a very prominent "X." (Also, pornos were occasionally shown in regular theaters. One week The Devil In Miss Jones, the next, the latest James Bond film. o_O) And there was, at one point, a rather disturbing trend of doing pornos based on children's stories. (I'm sure Disney's lawyers put a stop to it). This included - I swear I am not making this up - The Erotic Adventures of Pinocchio. And that line that Kai envisions was the film's actual tagline - which I never forgot. It is permanently embedded in my brain in the form of a deep scar.

(That said, though, the idea of a very porny Alice Nine in Wonderland has crossed my mind, where Alice-Shou chases a White Squirrel down a rabbit hole and ends up having sex with the Caterpillar/Butterfly, the Cheshire Tiger and the Cockroach Mad Hatter before finally finding his destined true love.)

I may not get much writing time for a couple of weeks - I'm visiting a friend next weekend and going to the Van Gough exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art the weened after that. I think when I get time again, though, priority number one (unless I get lightning inspiration for something else) is going to be the Aoi X Ruki chapter of Movie Night. Damn, there have been a LOT of people clamoring for that one! (Well, it's not a pairing that a heck of a lot of fic has been done about, and I don't know why).

Also, we have a new mod in the main Alice Nine community who's trying to get the activity levels up. So far, she's been successful - I'm loving the new, weekly "Random Reaction Post" were you're given a "What would you do?" situation and have to come up with an answer. (The first one involved an Easter Bunny Shou landing on your doorstep with chocolate eggs, and the second was picking a concept for a photo session). I do hope this continues, because I would like to see the fandom have an active, discussion-based community - I've yet to come across one for the general GazettE fandom (not pairings).

Personally, I love twisted takes on Alice in Wonderland, and an Alice Nine version (with what's presumably a Ruki cameo)) sounds excellent! XD

Yes, Ruki would definitely be there - The Mad Hatter's Tea Party would get its own chapter, where Shou stumbles across GazettE and Ruki takes an immediate interest in him. (Kai and Uruha, meanwhile, would only be interested in each other. Yes, they'd have to be in there).

I think that's a terrific idea! I'd almost suggest splitting up the pairings (giving you Tora and Saga and me Ruki and Hiroto), but that might result in too strong a stylistic disconnect between chapters of the series. Then again, that might not matter.

What inspired this, by the way, is a review I read once of Clamp's Miyuki-chan in Wonderland, which I had pretty much considered the lamest, most useless manga they ever did. (Until their recent ones, but we won't get into that . . .) Anyway, the reviewer interpreted the manga as a dream had by a young woman who's in denial about being a lesbian, and especially in denial of her feelings about one girl in particular. I saw this as being a dream-state of Shou at the very beginning of the Stargazer series, in denial about his feelings for Hiroto - if you notice, the three men he sleeps with here are the three he had "friends with benefits" relationships with when he was denying he was in love. (I'd still manage to get Kai and Uruha in there, though, even though they weren't a couple at that point - Uruha would have been in the disastrous we're-both-really-denying-our-feelings-for-other-people relationship with Aoi. Perhaps Shou noticed they had feelings for each other before they did. ~_^)

Seriously though, lets make it a story in four chapters, one per character. I get caterpillar-Saga and Cheshire-Tora, you get Hatter-Ruki and the final chapter with White Squirrel-Hiroto, it would be fucking brilliant. And so porny...good lord, four chapters of fantasy smut, literally. I wonder who Uruha and Kai would be though...surprise me! XD

Pretty much all the CLAMP manga I've read included thinly veiled same-sex attraction denial from the main characters, and Miyuki-chan in Wonderland is no exception. I haven't read it personally but the way you summarize makes absolute sense, typical CLAMP. I've only read RG Veda, which I actually loved, but wasn't especially interested in their other offerings, except for the art. Good lord, those girls know how to draw...

Let me know if you're interested it could be a fun little project ;D

Okay, now that I'm back from my trip, I can reply about the joint project fic! I'm all for it. We just need to work out the specifics like the overarching plot, and what order the chapters fall in. I do like the idea of the whole thing being a dream Shou has when he's still in denial about his true feelings for Hiroto. (That's one hell of a wet dream, having wild sex with four men!)

I'm thinking about how I'm going to bring Uruha and Kai into this, but I do know what their ultimate role would be - Shou sees them making love and realizes what he really wants is love, not just sex, which ultimately leads to him finally finding Hiroto.

Oh I'm so excited about this little project! Wheeeeee! I'm super busy right now but I could probably get started on it end of next week or something like that.

In the actual lewis caroll book, if my memory serves me right, Alice meets the white rabbit (but very briefly), then caterpillar, then the hatter, then the cheshire cat, and then she sees the white rabbit again. That would give me the first and before last chapter, and you the second and last (climactic XD) one.

If we want to follow that chronology of course, since it would be a side arc to your stargazer verse, I'm leaving it entirely up to you. Just pm me with whatever you think of and we can get to work :D
