THE PRICE OF YOUR HEART; I’ll take your kissShinpachi/Sanosuke 30kisses arc
Theme set list/restriction : Nu/acquisition
Series : Hakuoki
Pairing : Shinpachi/Sanosuke
Warnings : shounen-ai, yaoi and everything around it, including lemons, cursing, boshin war themes, a bit of SM, but without violence or abuse themes,- you know-it’s more fun that way. At least for Sano. Even though the warnings sound dark and angsty, it’s still Shinpa/Sano, that means, that if there will be any angst, it will be only because they are for once acting their age. It’s set in the times of the boshin war, later meiji restoration and government (read author’s note), alas I should mention it with everything that comes with it.
Summary : Made for 30kisses list Nu/acquisition. Shinpachi and Sanosuke deal with their love, their lives and with the changing times.
Disclaimer : I do not own Hakuoki, or any of it’s characters. The creators do. My muse owns the idea of the fic, myself the work and the time I put into writing it. Credit me at least those, ok?
Notes – please read
The idea to claim Shinpa/Sano at 30kisses came as I was already writing this one-shot. I got it, as other one shots started attacking me, in a wave of inspiration (thank one abusing muse) and I thought to myself „Why not try to make it 30kisses?“ So I went to look if there isn’t any theme set list fitting to them. There was. I ronically, it was taken from the „Ferrengi book of acquisition“ from Star Trek. Talk about historical Japan. But anyway, I claimed them and so here I am. Also, as soon as I claimed, this one shot got another wave of inspiration and gained something concrete, a theme, a purpose. I’m eternally gratefull for that.
Also, some of the parts will starr Shiranui. You know - that handsom long purple-haired demon who calls Harada sexy boy. SImply because a - I ship them, b - I enjoy triangles that will most likely never be real triangles, much less threesomes (and lj's 30kisses doesn't even allow them) and c - because I can. I will post it behind the chapter summary if it shoul doccur that there is Shiranui..
1. As I already mentioned, some of the one shots will be set in the meiji era, which Shinpachi had come to see alive (historically the only one of the shinsengumi besides Saito). Depending on how season 2 developes, it might partially, but not necessarily divert from the series plot (especially concerning Harada – I have a suspicion of what will happen with him and I’m basing a few events of the one shots on it, but there’s no guarantee that my suspicions get confirmed).
2. I’m studying classical archeology. It shows. I’m a neat freak in historical accuracy, so I will do my best to make everything historically as accurate as I can. However, I’m not an expert on japanese history and the majority of my informations are either from wikipedia, other animes, or my best friend (who had one semester of japanese history), so it’s fairly possible that there will be inaccuracies or even huge mistakes. If you notice some, correct me. This also includes japanese clothing. In this case I’m open and listening to any lecture. If there is some expert on japanese history, or this particular era, and wants to, or is willing to offer some information, or help me out, I’ll be more than happy. I would have someone concrete to turn to with possible questions. It would help me out a lot. And since there will be long time spans between my updates, the questions won’t come that frequently. ...At least I suppose. You never know when my muse will start abusing me and I make me write ten fics a day.
3. Updates might take their time. The possibility is very high. I don’t have much time, but I’ll be able to compose an one shot here and there. I have 7 free hours one day betwene two lectures. I’m spending them at the library (like now). When there won’t be any seminar to work on, I will have plenty time to write one shots. So there should be no problem with it. Also, I feel a new wave of inspiration. It feels like I’m breaking free from my chains and somehow right now I feel like I could write anything. I have even started to work on paused fics, f.e. my kyou kara maou fics. I’m actually almost at the point at returning to writing Complicated as Love. So yeah, the chances are high.
