Otherwise known as Hinamatsuri.  
Well, I stuffed that objective up. Too much damn interference. I have a better proposition, though.

I'm posting this for [livejournal.com profile] rokesmith.

See, it is, after all, Youji's birthday. And being as he is rather fond of both Youji and of writing about him, [livejournal.com profile] rokesmith is soliciting prompts for short, Youji-centric fanfics. He's the one who wants the prompts and the one who will be filling them, no doubt far, far better than I've ever managed - but I've got a somewhat larger friendslist, so I'm the one he asked to post the announcement.

For those of you who aren't familiar with [livejournal.com profile] rokesmith's work, his fanfiction.net profile is here. If you've never read anything he's written before - and I'd honestly reccommend you start if you have even the slightest fondness for reading about Weiss as assassins - House of Cards, a mission-centric fic, is a very good place to start, and The Last Hello is a very good example of the way that he writes about Youji. For my money he's proved to be damn good at this: his take on Youji is one of the best I've ever come across, and I can only wish that I was even half as good at writing case-based fanfics as he's proved to be. I'm actually a little jealous.

If you are requesting a fic from [livejournal.com profile] rokesmith, please specify the following:

  • One or more other characters who will be involved in the scene along with Youji - please try and keep the numbers of characters involved to a reasonable level - or 'solo' if you would rather see a monologue about that particular plot or theme. Other characters involved should be part of Kapitel-era canon. No OCs, please.

  • A prompt. Please keep these brief to allow him room to work with them. A good prompt would comprise of a single word or phrase - 'cars', for example, or 'power failure' - rather than several sentences explaining exactly what you'd like to see.

Please be aware that all fiction written as a result of these prompts will be gen. Awesome gen.

To keep things simple, please leave any prompts in the comments to this post, not on [livejournal.com profile] rokesmith's journal.

Finally, unless I'm explicitly told it's okay to say otherwise I'm going to request that any prompts should try and keep things to canon-appropriate levels of violence and trauma. I'm not sure how much fun [livejournal.com profile] rokesmith finds writing the heavy or even medium-weight angst the Weiss Kreuz fandom as a whole specializes in, but from what I know it's 'not very' and I'm therefore going to assume that he really does not want to take requests for anything too dark. It's Youji's birthday, after all - let's try and keep things at least vaguely pleasant for the poor guy.

Hiii. If it isn't too longwindy, I'd say my prompt would be "Youji's thought processes between when he showed up in the basement to fight with the boys and Neu told him where Schreient was 'hiding Aya-chan'" in Trane. Interaction with lady herself optional but much loved |D

If that IS too longwindy... young detectives Youji and Asuka, "if you dare."

My prompt will sound similar to the second one above, but I will put it in anyway...

I'd like to see a story about Yohji's early days as a PI: why/how he became one or a first case scenario. Asuka's presence is optional although I'm not against it if they started out together or if he meets her during the course of the story.

Youji, Aya, cars.

Someone's gotta make you write this.

Someone has to ask for Omi. Prompt is "memory" or "nostalgia."
