*shrug* it's not that I don't write T&B fic, but it's just that my other fic ideas have me really bogged down (recently I've been suffering from slow progress - WRITER'S BOG) and I really don't want to distract myself anymore.

Plus, I just got hit by ANOTHER idea (probably going to be a oneshot, thank goodness...) so it'll be a while before I have time to try anything else. XD

oh well, here's a scene-ish thingy I wrote for the following prompt: "Let's have a role reversal-type thing. Instead of a tsun Bunny and a hot-blooded veteran Tiger, we have: -a bitter, hedgehog syndrome Kotetsu who is bent on avenging his wife's death (instead of a disease, she was killed) who doesn't trust anyone and has qualms about suddenly being paired up with a young rookie. -a very enthusiastic, hot-blooded Barnaby who is almost like a younger, more eager but much less experienced Sky High, who really wants to not disappoint his senior partner Kotetsu."

my brain will grumble at me if I try a full AU, so I prefer to write what-if oneshots. :3


"What... do you mean?" Kotetsu asked slowly, staring at his partner.

"I - I'm sorry." The blond cast his gaze downwards, refusing to meet the older man's eyes. "I think... that your family may have been targeted by Ouroboros because you saved my parents, all those years ago. Because we were their original targets."

Kotetsu suddenly realised he could not breathe.

"Y-you've forgotten about it already, haven't you?" Barnaby forced a laugh, but it was weak. "I was so glad back then, because you were there and you saved their lives and - and I thought everything was going great, you know? But had I known that my happiness and my family would come at the cost of yours, maybe I wouldn't have wanted you to--"

"Stop it, Bunny. Just - don't go on. Please."

Kotetsu's breathing was short and shallow, and something in his voice shook, for a moment. He took a deep breath, and tried to speak. "A Hero's duty is to protect people, isn't it? I'd almost forgotten about all that... Because I couldn't even save my own family, after all." He turned to stare bleakly out of the huge window, the beautiful lights of Sternbild at night a sharp contrast to his own dimmed eyes.

"It's not your fault, it's Ouroboros'. And no matter what you say, or what I tell myself..." He flicked his firm gaze back towards his partner, face set in grim determination. "I don't regret what I did. I can't. My wife would hit me over the head if I do, anyway."

He saw Kotetsu smile then - a painful, bittersweet smile, but a smile nonetheless.


"So don't apologize for it," the once-King of Heroes growled, for a moment sounding just like his namesake.

Barnaby opened his mouth, then closed it again. "Okay," he muttered, trying to find something to say.

"Okay then," he repeated, raising his chin and looked Kotetsu squarely in the eyes. "But I'll do anything it takes to help you hunt them down, whether you like it or not," he declared. "So that you can find closure. That's... what you want the most, isn't it? Not just revenge, but closure. A way to move on."

And for a moment, Wild Tiger really looked every single one of his thirty-odd years. He looked less like a fierce, jaded veteran Hero and more like Kaburagi Kotetsu, the man who lost everything because he did what was right and lived every day from then on torn between grief, guilt and duty.

"...Yeah," he muttered. "I don't want this to happen to anyone else." He leant against the wide glass pane of Barnaby's living room window, and let himself slide down slowly.

"After all, a Hero's duty is to protect the people."

W-Wha- What do I do with all these feelings? /crying already. T_T

Yes. 8D

And I feel horrible that I've not completed my secret santa for KakaNaru. /slaps self. I'm just torn between writing, which I've never done for Naruto, and drawing... which I've only ever done once for Naruto and it was sasuNaru. ._.

So yeah.

GANBATTE! I'm struggling with final assignments in poly at the moment. OTL 4 more weeks to freedom!

Please do! XD

Aaah... ganbarimasu. OTL

Well. It'll be my final year once April comes sooo... yeah. Preparing for hell. XD I'm studying Multimedia & Animation. :D People think we're slacking all the time 'cause we don't have final papers but it's more like we're on permanent zombie mode due to constant assignments XD Which JC have you been posted to? :D

It's fun, I suppose. I really just joined 'cause I wanted to go into a course I could draw in. And I didn't want to attempt entering Lasalle because you'd need to go through an interview and I'm terrible with interviews. XDD

Oh, that's pretty awesome. XD I'm personally from CTSS. Not too shabby of a gov. school and I had really fun teachers in my final year that were encouraging in their own ways. :3 I don't have any attachments to the school but I did enjoy my time in it.

French eh. Language of love. XDDD I'm taking Japanese at the moment (and trying to build up my pitiful vocab) but I've always wanted to do German or Italian too. >_< So many things to learn, so little time...

Don't worry! I entered both Sec and Poly with zero friends/acquaintances. XD It's not too hard making new friends, just gotta find a common topic to be perverts over. /shot.

Don't be. It's a dark world out there among animators. A lot of struggling to do and connections to make or you'll never get anywhere due to the increasing competition. Then again, I'm not really looking into becoming something big, just being able to do what I enjoy doing most. XD

I... was from CTP. Which is right beside CTSS. Can't say I've really moved around much in terms of school XD Among my siblings, I've actually gotten into the 'worst'. I'm not the sort to work hard at something I don't find interest in anyway sooo. 8'D I'm still pretty amazed I got 14 for L1R5 when I did the good ol' last minute cramming. XDD

I liked some of my Primary school teachers, even if I felt kinda 'oppressed' by one or two sometimes. Art wasn't really a subject my form teacher covered at all. In fact, I *didn't* have art classes in P6. XD So it was pretty surprising for myself when I chose to pick it up again in Secondary and continue to where I am today.

Ah, that's good. I'm pretty shit with memorising. I try but I'm not the best at it. My brain's pretty selective too. It tends to erase things it deems unimportant and pick up on things that aren't at the same time. Stupid brain. =w=; If I don't remember something the first time I learn it, chances are, I won't ever learn it LOL.

I'm more of a 'picky' person than an introvert, as I've come to realise. I trust my instincts most when it comes to people, so if I'm not comfortable with a stranger, I'll never be. I prefer people to approach me first even though I don't like random people talking to me either XD Are JC guys really so annoying? I don't recommend looking for a relationship if you don't know what you're after anyway. These days, people seem to be getting into relationships younger and younger and for no reason beyond being in one. ._. I find it peculiar.

/patpats. I find myself the only person shipping some pairings too, no worries. ;w;

Potato!? XD That's interesting. I'd mope if there's a lack of good story updates, new things to interest me, art and music. XD

(Yes I do! Though I'm not on it as often as I used to be. I usually only go on when a friend asks if I am. :3 If you want to add me, my e-mail's

Yeah, thanks. XD I'll... try my best. www /pro-procrastinator

Ah, that's what happened for me too. Sec 3's always the worst 'cause that's the year with the most content to cram. XD

I might end up a teacher too but I don't really want to LOL. IDK. I've got no ambitions and some of my friends are so shocked and worried when I tell them I don't have any. wwwwwww

Oh, that's nuts. I've got pretty mixed classmates, since they're of different ages. The only thing that annoys me is when the guys start jamming in the middle of class. =_=

/o/ I'm so tired of those pairings everyone try to fling in your face. XD

Oh! Okay. XD I'll... try to remember to check hotmail often if you're going to chat with me there.

Oh ouch. Thank goodness I never tried for the non-governmental schools XDDD I would've flunked out anyway. LOL.

A novelist? I thought of being a mangaka, truth be told, but it's really tough and I can't say I've ever done any panel work before sooo XD I'm too lazy to try. /o_

Maybe they're just impressed that you're smart enough to NOT like Sasuke LOL. I personally never understood the appeal of Sasuke. Sure, he's dark haired and fair... but he's a self-righteous asshole that's rotten to the core. KAKASHI, on the other hand, mmmhmmm~ that's one fine man. <3 Though I have to say between him and Zabuza, I could never figure out who I love more and with Naruto. XDDDDDD It's not really stereotypical, to say. I think it's more of a case of seeing characters for what they really are and not liking them just because they look hot. (Then again, Sasuke's not that hot to me... his kid version was adorbs though!)

Jamming as in playing guitars lol. They tend to bring in their acoustics and electrics and just start playing. It's their way to de-stress, which I understand, but it's just annoying when they do it in the middle of a class, even if the lecture's over. ._. These days, I have little to no patience for people LOL. I keep running from the classrooms after asking my lecturer if I could leave XDD

I... have never heard of Blood Prison. Right now, I'm just waiting to finish my damn work so I can start on Brave 10. XD Another Sengoku era series but the MEN. /fans self. XDDDD

Hhhhmmm.... well, yeah, I suppose. It's not so much of me not being online than it is me not doing anything when I'm online XD I really don't do anything unless someone prompts me to. Do you use messengers? I find them easier to work with. There's this really nice, simple and word-limitless one called Oovoo. (Y) I like to use that for wordy chats... though I only have one contact on it because she's the only one I ever need to spout paragraphs to. XDDDD
