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.

Study Session

Title: Study Session
Fandom: Yami No Matsuei
Characters: Touda, Byakko
Prompt: 043. Square.
Word Count: 323.
Rating: G
Summary: Byakko's tired of geometry.
Author's Notes: I wavered between the two possible interpretations of square for a while, which is probably why you get both.

"Okay, so what about this shape?" Touda shoved yet another piece of paper under Byakko's nose.

"Well, it has four corners," the tiger commented. He'd found that stating the obvious often bought time with teachers. "Seems rather simple."

"Yes, but what's it called?" Touda wasn't a teacher and often a lot harder to please.

Byakko tried to remember, but he suspected that he'd slept through that lesson. A thing with three corners was a triangle, so maybe ...


Touda sighed, so probably not.

"Well, you could probably get away with calling it a rectangle as long as you don't have its exact measurements," the serpent offered. "If I tell you that it has four 90° angles and all its sides are the same length, though, what do you call it then?"

"Boring rectangle?" Not that Byakko actually believed that, nor had he ever come across a geometric form or anything else that had a connection with studying that he didn't find boring.

"Square," Touda supplied. "And it's not boring. It's just easy. Trust me, you'll like this one."

Byakko couldn't imagine liking anything about Math.

"Squares belong outside in the streets."

Touda glared at him. "Fine, lets imagine that this is a drawing of such a square and you want to pave it."

Byakko did not want to pave anything. It sounded like work and they'd been studying for over an hour now. Wasn't it time for a break?

"Is there an ice-cream stand in that square?" he asked Touda. "Because, if I'm supposed to pave it, I need to see the real thing first. A drawing just won't do."

"What's that got to do with an ice-cream stand?"

"Well, if there's an ice-cream stand I'll have to bring money, because it's hot and when we get there we'll want ice-cream to cool us."

Touda sighed again. "Alright," he gave in. "Lets go for ice cream."

Sometimes studying with Touda was great.
