lysapadin: pen & ink painting of bamboo against a full moon (Default)
I've been looking at my folder for Works In Progress and have concluded that some of them are never actually going to be finished, generally because I had a neat idea, wrote a scene or two that fulfilled whatever yen I had in the first place, and then never felt particularly compelled to finish the rest. (It's all to do with how I write: I write to find out what happens next, so if I figure that out in too much detail, I no longer feel all that fussed about writing it down.)

So here are some things that I will never actually finish writing, edited up a bit, with closing notes that summarize roughly what would have happened in the rest of the fic, had I finished it. Caveat lector, dear readers: these are things that I am laying to rest because I will not be finishing them.

Also submitted for [community profile] ladiesbigbang, with the consequent result that the ever-marvelous [personal profile] esmenet put together a fanmix, Let Them Eat Cake for this fic. Go and check it out, because it's awesome!

The one problem, if it was a problem, was that Tsunako-chan went around so much with Yamamoto-kun and Gokudera-kun these days that it was next to impossible to get a word with her privately, which was something Kyouko dearly wanted to do. )

Bianchi took one look at the long, dark car that had pulled up for them and drawled, 'Really, Cavallone?' in tones to wither a guy's manhood. Fortunately, Dino felt very secure in his masculinity. )

Choice: The Betrothal Arc

In which Tsuna isn't Tsuna but Tsunako, and lived with her parents in Italy for a few years before circumstances made moving to Namimori seem advisable. And changes spiral out from there. For the [livejournal.com profile] khrfest prompt Xanxus/Tsuna - genderswap; "don't look down on me because I'm a woman."

Note: This arc doesn't take canon developments from the manga after chapter 282 into consideration and uses the set of guardians for the Ninth from other versions of Choice; if OCs bother you, well... they're mostly peripheral to the action, I promise.

First Meetings: This is what happened the first time Xanxus and Tsunako met.

Matchmaker: In which the Ninth is almost out of options. But not quite.

Drive a Bargain: In which the Ninth finds his mislaid spine and drives a bargain with Squalo.

Betrothal by Fiat: Sit down, princess, Daddy has something to discuss with you.

First Impressions: It behooves home tutors to discuss pedagogical strategies with one another.

Dying Will: In which Tsunako experiences her own Dying Will for the first time.

But Not Both: You can have one of the other; you can't have both.

Got Your Back: Every mafia princess needs a bodyguard. Or two.

Shoot It Out: Sometimes it's satisfying to just put a hole, or ten, in something.

Reconsiderations: In which Bianchi and Reborn reconsider their lesson plans.

Thaw: In which the Ninth thaws Xanxus out.

A Year in the Life: In which Tsunako gathers up a Family of her own.

Delegation: It's important for a leader to know how to delegate.

Title: Thrall
Characters/Pairings: Bianchi/Yamamoto
Summary: In which Yamamoto has cause to go undercover with Bianchi and discovers something about himself.
Notes: Adult for smut. Mentions of BDSM and clear D/s dynamics. Was going to be for Porn Battle XI, but I ran out of time to get it in before things closed. 3563 words.

Bianchi had accepted the assignment with an expression so perfectly blank that Takeshi hadn't been able to help being impressed by her sangfroid. )

Title: Word of Honor
Characters: Dino/Bianchi; background Yamamoto/Gokudera
Summary: It's not good to say something if you don't mean to follow through on it. But then, that's not a problem for Dino Cavallone.
Notes: Adult for smut (and how!). This is a side-story for All or Nothing, which gives context for this fic but probably isn't required reading for this one, which is mostly about Dino + Bianchi + Dancing = Smut. Mostly, anyway. 6848 words.

That was what being siblings meant: she and Hayato would give each other merry hell all day long, but just let anyone else try to give one of them shit, and they'd turn around and tear strips off the bastard in two-part harmony. Because they were real functional like that, her and Hayato. )

Title: A Culinary Campaign
Pairings: Yamamoto/Bianchi
Summary: The best way to get to the heart is between the ribs and up. But there are other routes, too.
Notes: A hopelessly belated entry for round four of [livejournal.com profile] khrfest, prompt III-26: Yamamoto/Bianchi – cooking rivalry; "s/he'd gone too far this time; this was now war". Adult for smut. Shamelessly fluffy. Diverges from canon at ch. 282. 7201 words.

There was one thing Yamamoto wasn't good at, and that was parsing warning signs. )
