odds & ends

- Hana Yori Dango - Dilemma by Honooko - I was not looking for anything but Tsukasa/Tsukushi fic, but I was curious about Honooko's writing for this series and intrigued by the opening paragraphs (because I was really terribly fond of the F4's friendships with each other) and somehow I got sucked into this piece. It's beautifully written and kind of won me over to the idea of Soujiro/Akira, despite that I really liked Soujiro/Yuuki. The emotional tension of the piece, yet at the same time, there's something almost casual about it is really fantastically done, the author climbed inside of the characters' perspectives and wove these fascinating little details that made the fic just fantastically well. It was just. It was flail-worthy HYD fic, really. ♥ (Soujiro/Akira.)

- Hana Yori Dango - Four of Hearts by kashudoreineko - Okay, I know. Going to AFFNET isn't exactly the smartest move a person can make when looking for fic, even if you really kind ofjust want the porno, goddammit. I was just going to go find something to read to pass the time, just a little something to take the edge off all the Tsukasa/Tsukushi UST in so many fics. But sometimes going to AFFNET pays off! Like when you find a really fantastically done fic like this, where the writing is smooth and solid, and the characterization is fabulous. I loved that it was about the sex, sure, but it was also about Tsukasa and Tsukushi's relationship, about how nervous they were together again like this, it was actually really insightful into their relationship as well. Also, it's good het porn. Every chance you get to read well-written het porn should be cherished, much less when you get it for a pairing that doesn't have a lot of actual resolution to all the UST. ♥ ....and I am totally not over-exited at good hetsmut for Tsukasa/Tsukushi, I don't know why anyone would think that. (Tsukasa/Tsukushi, some Rui/Shigeru.)

- Hana Yori Dango - Stupid and Stubborn by Estirose - Generally, I don't lean towards fics that aren't putting my favorite characters together (when they're canonically in a relationship, that is), but one takes the good Hanadan fic where one can find it. Plus, it's set early on in the series, when Tsukushi did like Rui better and sort of genuinely hated Tsukasa, and it's an interesting look at her character and her early motivations, especially contrasted against what we know will happen. And my crabbing is purely personal taste, there's nothing wrong with the story itself, it's quite good! Nor is it anti-OTP, just that it examies Tsukushi's character in a place where she's not there yet. So, it was a good read. XD (Implications of Tsukasa/Tsukushi and Rui/Tsukushi.)
