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: Nobody?
Fandom: Yami No Matsuei
Characters: Touda
Prompt: 047. Heart.
Word Count: 380.
Rating: G
Summary: Some days Touda just feels like they're all against him.
Author's Notes: The only explanation I have for this one is that it was written on the same day as the Storm prompt. I seem to have had meetings on my mind at the time.

"I don't see why the traitor should be part of this," Suzaku declared half-way through the meeting.

Touda didn't really understand what had brought this on. Yes, he'd been speaking against Suzaku's plan, but only to point out that it was technically impossible. He wasn't personally against the idea, if they found a way to make it work.

"Suzaku does have a point, you know," Rikugou agreed. "He may be Tsuzuki's shiki, but that shouldn't automatically make him part of GenSouKai's government."

"It's not like anybody actually trusts him," SohRyu said.

Touda wondered which side that argument was supposed to support.

"Nor does anybody actually want him around." That was Taimo.

"I am merely explaining relevant technical facts," Touda stated forcing himself to stay calm. "And as far as I am aware, you currently don't have any other experts on hand."

"That is besides the point."

Maybe it was, but then again Touda was aware that he had no friends other than his master Tsuzuki and the shinigami was rarely around. Did they have to rub it in?

The argument continued around him and he decided to sit down. Speaking up against them would be pouring oil into the flames and leaving without a fight would be cowardice. So he waited for their decision and reminded himself that he didn't really care what became of GenSouKai. The only important thing in the world was Tsuzuki and Tsuzuki didn't live here.

Maybe he should leave the city as well. Nobody here would miss him and he'd still be in reach whenever Tsuzuki called, if he lived in the country. A little hut deep in the forest perhaps ...

The door flew open and Tenkou bounced in waving a piece of paper. It was amazing how easily one little girl could silence a heated argument. Everybody stared at her as she ran down the room without sparing them a glance and stopped beside Touda's chair.

"Here," she said thrusting the sheet of paper into his hands. "I drew this for you."

"That can wait until after the meeting, Tenkou," SohRyu ordered pointing at the door. "You know you're not allowed in here."

Tenkou left pouting, but the drawing remained behind, a clumsily drawn black snake in front of a big red heart.
