Once upon a time, 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 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 readerofasaph
had started, while she and 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. )
