chokethewind: (KH // Now come back on the weekend)
Title: The Best We Know How
Rating: M (language, explicit mentions of sex)
Word Count: 5,443
Summary: Four times Axel left before Roxas woke up, and one time he didn’t. AU, Akuroku.

Author’s Notes: The title comes from the Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s song A Sea Chanty of Sorts. You can download it here.

I feel like I need to apologize for something called This Frenzied State; consider this a go-between. Chicago did its trick, really. This is like everything I do, mainly: fragmented, relying heavily on different interpretations, and nothing very concrete. It's also one of those counting things, and nothing not so nice.

I don’t do well with present tense; I have no beta, but I have had this finished for a few weeks and I’ve combed it, so hopefully there’s nothing extremely glaring. Any mistakes are mine.

As usual, constructive criticism is always welcomed.

Happy Valentine's Day?

Axel shrugs. “You’re cute. You’re over eighteen. You can think for yourself. You’ve got that tasty little stench of someone who needs it, so why the fuck not?” )
chokethewind: (KH // Let me see your halo)
Just when I thought I couldn't churn out anything stupid or fluffy or pointless anymore, it happens. Maybe not so fluffy. Sometimes I also think I'm clever. I don't know anything.

Title: Narration
Rating: K+
Word Count: 1,958
Summary: You know what’s not funny? Axel narrating his life. You know what is funny? Axel narrating porn.

Author’s Notes: Something very short, not very substantial, and because we’re all having bad days lately. Sort of fluffy. Also sort of stupid, but we’re cool bro. No beta, per normal, all errors are mine.

chokethewind: (KH // This is Halloween)
Was busy with a con this weekend, so this is a day late. But nonetheless.

Title:
Across the Doorsill
Rating: K+
Word Count: 5, 052
Warnings: language, and that's all folks.
Summary: I would love to kiss you, but the price of kissing is your life. Akuroku, next life.
Author’s Notes: The title comes from the poem Spring Giddiness, by Rumi.

In September my friends and I went on a roadtrip through Texas. We stopped in Austin and had time to kill, and so we ate at this brilliant little Korean place that was kitschy, urban, and just awesome. All the chairs had little snippets of poems or songs written on them, and I saw this one. I wrote the end of this the next night, and finished it this week. Not extremely Halloween-ish, but happy late Halloween anyway.

As usual, concrit is always welcomed.

I would love to kiss you.
The price of kissing is your life.
Now my loving is running toward my life shouting,
What a bargain, let's buy it.

“I never had it in the first place. It’s Halloween tomorrow. Just come out with me. I won’t try to feel you up, or molest you, or do anything remotely dumb in your presence. I just want to kiss you.” )

Title: Like Sleeping
Rating: T
Word Count: 4, 673
Genre: Supernatural/angst
Pairing: Axel/Roxas
Warnings: language, angst, bad clichés. The usual.
Summary: Going through the stunted motions of living isn’t the same as being alive.

Author’s Notes: I am, of course, not abandoning This Frenzied State. You would pretty much have to kill me to do that. I am just having… beastly issues with it. I am sorry. >.>

I wrote this a few nights ago and I'm tired of looking at it. I don't think this is one of my better efforts at all. I am a one trick pony lately.

As always, constructive criticism is always welcome. This is the first time I’ve used first person narrative the entire way through, and I’m not sure every point I was trying to make got across. Or if the point got across at all, to be perfectly honest. Next fic Axel is not going to be such a puppydog. That version of him is getting old. Idk. No beta on this either, so feel free to point out errors.
______

Axel pulls back, meets Roxas’s eyes, and they aren’t really scared anymore, because Roxas, Axel has to remind himself, adapts better than most fish.  )

Title: This Frenzied State [9/?]
Rating: M
Genre: Drama/romance
Pairing: Axel/Roxas (AU)
Warnings: Abuse of miscellaneous Final Fantasy characters. Seriously. Any mischaracterization is obviously all my fault.
Summary: When Roxas stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see into some eternity. When Axel stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see how he'd survive a fourteen floor fall.

Author’s Notes: I’m just going to stop making excuses now.

I'm quasi-catching up to myself now. In a few months it will have been a year since I started writing this. Time flies. I also may or may not have something up for Akuroku day, gasp. Apparently the thing I'm best at is crack-y romances, but I haven't been able to write one of those in a really long time. Thursday may be an exception.

He shrugged, spared another glance at the ceiling, and then said, “Well, might as well tell you I guess, since I’m sure he won’t. He’s pregnant. It’s mine. We’re considering adopting it out. We’re both all kinds of immature, not a good environment to raise a child in, you understand.” )
chokethewind: (Roxas- Everyone knows I'm in over)
Title: Everything and Nothing At Once
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Horror/Angst/Next life/Romance (I have no idea what to put here)
Word Count: 5, 015
Disclaimer: KH belongs to Squeenix; lines from The Hollow Men go to T.S. Eliot.
Warnings: There are zombies (no flesh eating), too long sentences, not enough blood, and lots of water.
Summary: Axel’s less concerned about the blood in Roxas’s eyes than he is about the gun in his hand.
Author’s Notes: This is about zombies. Or rather, the aftermath of zombies.

This is a result of listening to too much Lydia (sea) and Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s (yearning). Also, because of Resident Evil (zombies). This is more or less a condensed version of a 17k zombie fic I wrote last year that was much more detailed, much more graphic, and much more developed. I ultimately stopped working on it because A) I had two versions in my head and wrote the one I liked the least and B) it really made no sense. I still may, one day, revive the better version I have in my head but it’s doubtful. If you want the one I worked on just give a shout, I can provide.

On a side note, I really should probably go to sleep sometime before 8 am most days. It’s starting to make me a zombie. DUNDUN. –shotshotshot-

Didn’t have a beta on this, so really, any concrit would be most welcome. I have a problem with corny endings and not enough explanation. Do tell.

Again Roxas said nothing, looked down at his arm, and then up at Axel, thoughtfully. “You’re going to have to kill me.” )
chokethewind: (HIMYM- Robin)
And now for something completely different. This is the first thing I've ever posted on here that wasn't KH. Harhar.

Title: The Not Too Far Distance
Fandom: How I Met Your Mother
Rating/Word Count: G/ 4, 235
Timeline: Set after “The Leap”
Summary: Barney has a gun. Robin is amused. Ted thinks they’re both out of their minds, and he never wanted half-Canadian babies anyway.

Author’s Notes: I’ve been trying to get this story out of my head for months now. I wrote the beginning in May on a scrap of paper at work and the rest just all spilled out tonight. Don’t really know what to say, except to me, at the end, it’s going to be Ted and Robin, like it was at the beginning. Cheers.

This is only second foray into HIMYM. Plz to be being gentle.

Ted didn’t say anything for awhile. He thought about a few things, like blue horns and breakfast and Halloween and how Leia kissed her brother before she realized who Luke was. Robin was looking at him beseechingly, like she wanted him to validate something, needed him to validate something. )

Title: This Frenzied State [8/?]
Rating: M
Genre: Drama/romance
Pairing: Axel/Roxas (AU)
Warnings: Abuse of miscellaneous Final Fantasy characters. Seriously. Any mischaracterization is obviously all my fault.
Summary: When Roxas stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see into some eternity. When Axel stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see how he'd survive a fourteen floor fall.

Author’s Notes: There are mutant turtles in this chapter. I hope this makes up for the update failure. Also, question for those on FFN: I'm attempting to put a linebreak in my profile and it will not stay put when I save it. I'm about to kill someone. I don't get it.

No beta still, so feel free to point out any errors, constructive crit is always welcome. The hangover experience is brought to you by many years of experience. I turn 21 in a few weeks, I expect to be even more of an expert in it after that delightful day occurs. I’m hoping I’ll have a brand new fic by that time, a short one-shot I’ve been semi-sorta working on. I posted a fic last year on my birthday, so attempting to continue that, er, pattern. Also need to change my layout, I've had this one for just as long. Hmm. Anyway, enjoy. There is lots of awkward in this chapter. Also, zombies and snarky little bastards.

He gritted his teeth as his head pounded and licked his dry lips, wishing he’d brought some water with him back from the bathroom, but now he didn’t want to move, didn’t ever want to move again. Burying his face into the cooler sheets, he wondered if he could commit suicide by just throwing himself off the bed. Maybe if his head hit first. )

Summary: When Roxas stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see into some eternity. When Axel stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see how he'd survive a fourteen floor fall.

Author’s Notes: I fail at life, yes. Warning for this chapter: there is light…er.. light smut. Very light. Pants still on. Consider yourself warned… or delighted, I don’t know. I’ve been writing a vampire!KH fic, which sort of took fire away from this. Also been trying to revive zombie!KH fic, but both of those aren’t going well at all. My life, my life.

This has sort of been in a posting schedule of every two weeks now, instead of the one week I wanted, so I’ll try to now keep that two week schedule. Hopefully it’ll work. Still no beta, so all errors are mine. Feel free to point them out. Not finished yet, but almost. Word count has gone down a little, since I end up cutting a ton more out than I put in. About 79k now. This one is actually the longest part out of the entire thing so far. If anyone cares. Carry on!


“Just put him to bed,” Axel suggested, gesturing toward one direction like it might be the bedroom, but he didn’t really know because he’d never seen it (and god forbid he ever do because heaven knew what the hell was in it) but it seemed to emphasize the gesture he was trying to accomplish. )

Summary: When Roxas stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see into some eternity. When Axel stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see how he'd survive a fourteen floor fall.

Author’s Notes: I’m sure it’s not a surprise to anyone that I fail at life. This part’s sorta long but it was either one long part or two tinny parts… and one tinny part in probably another three weeks, with the way I go, so here is a long one. Next part should be sorta long too.

Also I think I messed some stuff up in here, timing wise. Feel free to point it out. This is why I tell myself to not post stuff until I have it finished. Ah well. I’m dysfunctional. Sorta.

Axel went crashing into his back and they both stumbled forward at an alarming rate and Axel had a split second to think, oh gee, this is unbecoming and quite sexual for someone I’ve just met, but suddenly he hit a rather solid force and heard a chortling, deep laugh. )
chokethewind: (Roxas&Axel- Memory)
Next chapter of This Frenzied State will be up sometime in the next couple of days, as soon as I stop being lazy and edit it. This may be sort of odd. Download the song. It helps.

Title: Paper Cat
Rating: PG (for swearing)
Genre: Next life? And maybe some gen, with a hint of slight romance.
Word Count: 2, 889
Summary: Sometimes Roxas thought that his cat was trying to tell him something.

Author’s Notes: So today I laid down on the kitchen floor with my anti-social cat and he looked deep into my eyes. Somehow this turned into something kinda weird.

The title is from the song “Paper Kitten Nightmare” by the band Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s. Listen to them. Honestly. I mean, the guy meows in the song. That’s only the beginning! No, seriously, check out some of their other stuff. It's awesome.

It was a clumsy thing, fell off the couch more than it should have, didn’t hesitate to scratch either of them, and didn’t like using the litter box for a good three months before Roxas had beat it enough with his floppy slipper that it finally realized what the box with the sand in it was for. )

Summary:When Roxas stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see into some eternity. When Axel stands on the edges of buildings, he tries to see how he'd survive a fourteen floor fall.

Author’s Notes: So basically the week before last my life sucked hard (car broke down, home problems, what have you) and this past week I went on a roadtrip through California. So, that’s why this took so long. You may now nom on me. Any errors in this are all mine, I’m sleepy and should probably just wait to finecomb this but I feel that since I have time I should put it up. I haz no beta, so blame is all mine. If I had a beta, you could blame that person. In fact, I’m just gonna say I have an imaginary beta and you can blame her. She reads a lot of porn and thus, her brain is shot.

Okay, annd this title comes from the song Response by the band Barcelona.  Uploaded the track here if anyone wants to take a listen.  They're really quite amazing.  Have fun.

Sidebar, I went to Japantown in San Francisco this past week and saw Sora and Riku and Mickey Play Arts. Why no Roxas or Axel? I was saddened. Also, 358/2? Niiice. Sidebar, out.


Roxas nearly jumped out the window when the voice intruded upon his semi-sleep. His head, in any case, went banging into the glass and he cussed, rubbing it as he looked blearily up into the person that had interrupted his sleep. The guy standing there was probably a little older than Roxas, and bone-thin. He was wearing a thick hoodie and carrying a backpack, but the things that got to Roxas were both the tallness and the flaming red hair that was falling messily all over his face, like some sort of crazy red-tinged mosquito net. )

Author’s Notes: Yes, set schedule? I suck, I know. To my defense, this was the part where I was originally very shaky, plot-wise, and had to go back over everything a lot to figure out what I was doing. Some of it may still be wrong. >.> This part is pretty short, but the next one is going to be pretty long and hopefully, up a lot quicker. Thanks to everyone reviewing, you all make my day, really.

“We got a disco ball,” Demyx said, seriously, as they headed toward the elevator. “Lots of flashing lights, so if you or your friend is prone to seizures I’d probably stay away. Are you serious, though? You’re really going to loosen up and let us put a few drinks in you?” )

A/N: Puttering along here. I should give myself a schedule and stick to it. I don’t actually divide this is into parts until I post a new one but for anyone keeping track, the end of this part is page 40 out of 151 (still unfinished at about 84k) on my computer. That doesn’t really say much at all, does it? /keeping track .  By the way, Axel’s phone is a Sidekick LX. It’s not at all important but it’s a fact. And also, entire funeral sequence is sort of out of my own head. I’ve been wonderfully lucky and have never been to a funeral. I gleaned from television and made up my own version. Sorry if it clashes with what’s usual.



Roxas jumped about five feet in the air—which was just about as tall as he was—and turned around hastily to see Lexaeus standing there, watching him with those eerily quiet brown eyes. Roxas tried to fake a smile, but it came out rather stretched and obviously fake. “Hi, Lex. I was going to see you. I’m having a problem and I need to change my extension.” He paused, wondering if that was enough, and then blurted out—just in case Lexaeus missed the urgency of the entire situation—in a rush, “I have this stalker who keeps calling me and I don’t know who gave him my extension but he keeps calling me and he’s crazy and I don’t get it and I’d really just rather have my extension changed to—“ )

“Just shoot me now,” Axel muttered, sinking as far into the chair as he could go. “I suppose if I had a lighter I could find some gasoline and douse myself with it and then light myself on fire and that would be a cool spectacle, you know, the best funeral ever, complete with the walking flame of death. I could take some of the candles over at that little altar, that uh, that one right there for that lady…” )

Notes: This story was my Nano back in November. I hit 50k, shoved it away for a few months, and started writing again in February. It’s nearly finished and will be posted… with some sort of order sometime soon. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] caseyvalhalla  for reading the first-est draft of this ever and giving me feedback on it. Thanks dear. Means the world.

The title comes from the band Barcelona, from the song “Response,” off the album Absolutes. Check them out. They make gorgeous music.

The last time that Roxas had jumped from a building, he had never considered the possibility that he might live through the ordeal. There had been a lot of panicked screams, someone shouting about a terrorist and then for an ambulance, and then, quite remarkably, a pigeon. )

Characters: Roxas, Axel, Demyx

Summary: Whoever hires waiters for the graveyard shift is mentally unstable.  That's what Roxas thinks.  When he meets Axel, that is. (AU)
Author's Note:  I met an ambulance driver at my work two months ago.  It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to say about that.

The inspiration and title came from the song "A Story for Supper" by the band Lydia.  I've uploaded and you can download the demo version here-- if you like what you hear, check them out.  They are amazing.


ONE


Roxas’s picture had been subtly changing—now it sprouted to well over seven feet, grew fangs, and from its back sprang leathery wings. Axel x 2. Axelzilla. The Bride of Axel. Axel: Large and in Charge. Axel just wasn’t some harmless schizophrenic who would cost society millions—he was a full-fledged lunatic. )

Not for the first time Roxas considered throwing his fist in Demyx’s face. Every time this particular urge struck him, however, he would remember that Demyx talked smart but was too much of a girl to actually fight back much and what was the point of punching something that wouldn’t fight back?  )

Rating: T (some swearing)
Word count:  3, 706
Pairing: Axel/Roxas
Summary:  Axel knows origami and how to cook.  Rabbits, though, aren't his specialty.
Notes:  Kind of cracktastic.  Kind of written to get over this blockthing I have going on.  It's AU.  Beta'd (by myself).  And kind of sappy. :/



All that was left was to find a rabbit. There was, of course, a pet shop. Axel had heard about those mills though, the ones that pumped out rabbits like they were puppies or something and not defenseless, harmless, white little creatures with big ears and pink noses and twitching little whiskers that laid eggs on Easter.  )
  

For reference, the water crock can be found here and something about rabbits with cute pictures can be found here

Title: One Hundred and Two
Summary: Fifty sentences following Roxas's and Axel's time together inside Organization 13.
Rating: PG-13 for language and some adult-type action.
Pairing: Axel/Roxas (like I can write anything else).
Notes: Okay, well in any case, these are fifty sentences based on the community [livejournal.com profile] 1sentence . You can find the tables here  (I used the Gamma set).  I didn't claim this pairing on the community, nor am I member-- I only used the table so all credit for that goes to them.  ^^  I tried to make this follow some chronological order... tried to make it follow Roxas's time in the Organization.  We'll see how that played out.

It's called sake! )

Most of them were written while I was on my breaks at work.  Good way to past the time, I'll probably do another one cuz it was nice and all that jazz.
