This fic has its own theme song, "Bird on a Wire," which is also the source of the epigraph and (obviously) the title.

With deepest appreciation for [personal profile] branchandroot, who always helps me untangle the thorniest plot tangles, and [personal profile] andreaphobia, whose unrelenting enthusiasm for this fic made it particularly easy to keep up the writing momentum.

'What the fuck,' Daiki said, blank with shock, and so the first thing Tetsu said to him after five years was 'I'm sorry, but please don't use language like that on school grounds.' )

After about a month of attending family dinners with Xanxus, Squalo couldn't keep his mouth shut any longer. 'Boss,' he said, once they were home again, safely within the walls of her rooms where the wrong ears weren't going to hear him. 'You think I can get away with killing Enrico?' )

Firestorm has a handful of original characters in various roles. Below are a couple of tables of these and a couple of notes about why and when I've used original characters, for them as enjoy such neepery.

Notes on Firestorm: Warning, contains spoilers! )

Title: Wild Justice
Characters/Pairings: Tsuna/Kyouko; Gokudera/Haru; Chrome, Mukuro, I-Pin
Summary: Most people assume that Kyouko's really nice. They're mistaken: she's simply polite. And there's a huge difference between "nice" and "polite."
Notes: Teen and up. A hugely belated fic for round four of [livejournal.com profile] khrfest, prompt III-17: Kyoko – Haru is killed by a rival family, Kyouko doesn't take it lying down; "Fly away/ Take control / Beyond the edge will make you whole." Character death, angst, Kyouko being a badass. Kind of a grim AU to "They Also Serve". 8801 words.

There was no pleasure in having been proved right after all. )

Title: All or Nothing
Characters: Gokudera Hayato, Yamamoto Takeshi, Sawada Tsunayoshi, Reborn | Gokudera/OFC; Yamamoto/Gokudera; Dino/Bianchi
Summary: Gokudera can't bring himself to compromise on some issues, even when he'd really like to. Having a sense of responsibility can be a real nightmare that way.
Notes: Adult for about two paragraphs of smut-in-passing; future fic; completely ignores stuff happening after ch282; angst, dutiful self-sacrifice, and other tasty things. 14742 words.

This had all the hallmarks of ending up as yet another grand-scale disaster, Hayato decided as he surveyed the room from over the rim of his glass. God only knew what was going to go wrong, but it was only a matter of time before it did. He just knew it. )

Title: Bloodsport
Characters: Gokudera, Yamamoto, Ryouhei, Shamal, Tsuna, Hibari, Lambo, Squalo
Summary: Gokudera knows that this can't possibly end well.
Warnings: AU with vampires; angst, violence, fangsex, death. No pairings but plenty of subtext. 27,707 words.
Notes: Once upon a time, [personal profile] readerofasaph posted the beginnings of a fic about Yamamoto hunting vampires and running around all bloody, and asked someone else to take it off her hands. I flailed at her excitedly in the comments, because it was a shiny premise and I wanted more. After a quick exchange, I posted a brief snippet for her, with the caveat that "mind you, i have no idea what the context of this is, so. this is probably all you're getting."

Those were, shall we say, famous last words.

We exchanged several world-building sorts of comments, then we both got busy and distracted, and the whole thing fell dormant for a few weeks... until [personal profile] readerofasaph's birthday, where she inquired, hopefully, about a continuation to the vampire fic. Her request was felicitously timed, the stars were right, and over the course of about two weeks, I churned out something like twenty-five thousand words to build on what [personal profile] readerofasaph had started, while she and [personal profile] branchandroot cheered me on and helped me plot and world-build and contributed bits and pieces when I got stuck. This is the end result of that: we hope very much that you enjoy it!

The summer after his father's death, Yamamoto Takeshi started baiting vampires. It was a trendy game that year, a little fringe but with that tinge of the romantic, and not a few cool kids were getting into it. So far nobody at their school had died, which Gokudera Hayato thought was a great pity. )

Title: Borrowed Time
Characters: Orihara Kaoru, Asaka Rei
Summary: Kaoru is delaying things.
Notes: For the prompt, "Oniisama E, Kaoru and Rei, just one more time." 633 words.
Highlight for Spoilers: *I'm pretty sure this is set before the series, just after Kaoru has found out she's ill. So, uh. Burning angst. (Of course, it's Oniisama E. Burning angst almost goes without saying.)*

The only light came from a handful of candles on the table, clustered together and throwing shadows that danced as a draft made their candles bob. )

Summary: TYL Tsuna prepares himself for an unpleasant meeting.

Hibari clearly disliked the idea a great deal. )
