Note: Some fics may be friend-locked. If they are, and you want to read them, please just comment at the masterpost here and I will friend you so you can read them. While friending me first is appreciated, it is not necessary. I will not friend you back without a comment due to the fact that I do post original fic and works of progress under a friends lock. If you are only interested in my fanfiction and completed work, then you do not need me to friend you back. Works in progress are usually friends-locked because I will continuously edit the work. Anything under a friends-lock will not be cross-posted outside of this journal, so you will never be linked to a friends-locked post.
Fic List: (Updated: February 18, 2013)
I have written several pieces that I call "masterworks." They are pieces that I consider a reflection of the highest level of writing I was capable of at that time, be it in terms of plot content of stylistics. These are marked with an asterisk.

Week 1: NOBUTA // Kamenashi and Yamashita weren't friends, just strangers who occasionally drugged themselves out of their brains together. Kamenashi would watch Yamashita take his dose, keeping a careful wary eye on the older man as eyes rolled back and fingers spasmed and his entire body relaxed into lax comfort.
Week 2: Kouji // “Nii-san, it's me! How can you not recognize your own brother?” / Kame pulled up the ID again. “Kiritani Kouji-kun,” he read off the data scrolling along his eyes. Hair color, eye color, height weight. Nothing to connect the boy to Kamenashi Kazuya. He frowned at the boy. “Who am I then?” / Kouji smiled. “Is this a trick or something? Shouldn't you know your own name, Nii-san? You're Kiritani Shuji, of course.”

Twinkle Twinkle by virdant
