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.

A Hare.

Rating: PG
Summary: Kijin has finally told his father.
Author's Notes: So this time SohRyu's fist outburst of temper would hit Kijin and not Touda. What would it be like for Touda then?

SohRyu let himself drop into the chair beside Touda with a groan and hid his face in his hands.

Touda focused all his attention on the screen, but the dragon didn't go away. After what seemed like an eternity Touda risked a quizzical glance. He'd rarely seen SohRyu this dishevelled.

"My son impregnated a hare," SohRyu moaned. "A hare!"

"Better the hare than the rat," Touda offered. "Though personally, I liked the owl best. She seemed to have a brain."

"Owl?" SohRyu repeated.

"She was his favourite from the start, but hard to get," Touda explained. "And insisted on contraception anyway."

"You knew," SohRyu accused.

"He told me a few days ago."

"Why didn't you tell me? I'm his father."

"Precisely. You're his father and it's his girlfriend and his baby. Seemed only proper that he should be the one to tell you."

"Right." SohRyu folded his arms on the desk and hid his face in them.

Was he going to cry or go to sleep? Either way Touda wished he'd do it somewhere else. This was too close for comfort. He tried to return to his work.

"My son impregnated a hare," SohRyu started once again. "How?"

"Er ... I didn't exactly ask him for those details, but I'd say the usual way."

"Usual way?"

"Um ... Birds and bees, remember?" This was getting way too uncomfortable. "You were furious when I explained it to Tenkou a while ago."

SohRyu sighed. "And you couldn't have explained to Kijin instead?"

"He never asked. And I thought you had anyway. He definitely knew what he was doing with that hare. If he didn't know when he did it with the rat, the owlet must have explained it."

"Didn't you once tell me he was shy?"

"He was back then."

"How?" SohRyu moaned again running a hand through his hair and messing it up even more. "How could my only son impregnate a hare?"

"Didn't we just go over that?"

SohRyu glared at him. "You know what I meant."

Touda wasn't sure he did, but didn't want to argue.

"I think I need a drink," SohRyu decided finally getting up.

He wasn't drunk, yet? Well, at least it didn't look like he'd skinned Kijin and he hadn't even mentioned punishing Touda. All in all it seemed to have gone over well.
