Congratulations, YOU HAVE FOUND A HIDDEN FILE. Go ahead and read if you like, but please keep in mind that I have hidden these for a reason. These are bad or controversial works that I am more ashamed of than my other work ... or in the words of Shakespeare
If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended—
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.

Disclaimer 1: Most of this is fanfic. That means I do not own any of it. I just borrow it to play with for a little while and let people see the pathetic results if they really want to.

Disclaimer 2: I'm not making any money from it. It's just for fun.

Disclaimer 3: What isn't borrowed is all made up. None of this is real or most likely at all realistic. Please don't trust any of the information in here. Most likely you know more about whatever I'm writing about than I do.

Disclaimer 4: Attitudes, views and opinions expressed by the characters or in the story are not necessarily those of the author. Even when writing Science Fiction or Fantasy I do not tend to attempt to create perfect/better worlds in which everybody gets a happy end ... or whatever is best for them. Please accept that some characters will have a bad ending or be unhappy.

Disclaimer 5: I intend no insult to anyone. If I offend anyone I'm very sorry. Please understand that it was an accident as I tend to be very clumsy in these things.

Disclaimer 6: If my characters' conversations seem odd or they appear to be talking past each other the latter might occasionally be intentional, but most likely it is an accident and I'm not aware that they are. It's just my bad communication skills.


Title: Alone
Fandom: Yami No Matsuei
Characters: Touda, Tsuzuki, Rikugou (Suzaku mentioned)
Prompt: 031. Sunrise.
Word Count: 236.
Rating: G.
Summary: Touda watches the sunrise and thinks about what it symbolises for him.
Author's Notes: Touda, hellfire, hell – Exactly what is the connection there? Just wondering.

Touda watched the sun creep over the horizon setting the world on fire. Orange fire. Suzaku's fire. His own flames were black, blacker even than the night that had just passed.

He didn't like sunrises. They always reminded him that Gen Sou Kai was Suzaku's world, not his, never his. This was not his home.

He had been born into this world, but not into this city. His place was here, but he was not welcome here. There was no other place he'd ever consider calling home, but he didn't belong here. He was fire, but not this world's kind of fire. His fire was black, hellfire.

Touda had never been to hell. Sometimes he wondered what it might be like to visit the place. Would he immediately feel at home? Would he never want to return? He was a shikigami, not a demon. He didn't want to belong in hell.

"I love sunrises," Tsuzuki said with a happy smile. "They're so beautiful."

"I hate them," said Touda.

He could feel the others' stares on him. Wondering how a creature could be so unnatural to hate something this beautiful. He didn't belong with them, so he walked away to find himself a sunny spot.

"Not a morning person, I suppose," Tsuzuki commented sadly.

"He's cold blooded and it was a cold night," Rikugou pointed out. "Give him some time to warm up and he'll be fine."
