Lolz! Handstands in trench-coats ARE hard... even harder in heavy rennesance fair cloaks. I would know. I can only hold one for eleven minutes...

Yay for the closet furry!

Kaiba annoys me, but... yay for him to?

Okay, that was very short. Professionally speaking, this wouldn’t have any place in the short story category (800 to 70 words) but in the context of fan fiction then it is okay. This would be a flash fic (100 to 500 words). As you said, I didn’t make much sense out of it as it was too short and lacks any matter, image, or emotional impact. It simply was a short series of dialogue, a bit of thoughts (that didn’t hold much content) and minute movements.

I speculated what it could have meant, yes, but I did not have a clear idea.

The one thing that really intrigued me in your fic, funnily, was the dialogue between Joey and Kaiba, the easy way in which they inter-acted even though Kaiba was grumpily grunting out his every word (Joey didn’t even bat an eye lash at this) and the small action of Joey pushing Kaiba back to prevent him from falling. That was both very in-character of Kaiba and seemed to imply a deep level of understanding between these two (a camaraderie/relationship that is ripe enough that they can be physically comfortable with each other despite Kaiba’s “man-talk”). That was good characterization. But then you didn’t really focus enough on this so it didn’t really have the impact it should have.

Normally what I see in flash fics and drabbles is that they are mere tiny but profound glimpses into a character’s life or relationship. But yours sort of fell into the slot in between flash fic and short story…which really undermined its impact on the readers. It had too many details for a flash fic (the reason why all the details drowned out the fascinating core of it), but at the same time it lacked the depth and imagery of a short story.

Since you posted it really fast after the announcement of pairing, I guess that you didn’t really explore this pairing in depth. Maybe you should take your time a bit more. Let all the details and emotion sink in before writing?

Interesting concept.

Just a little spelling mistake I noticed while reading:

"If you even think of laughing, Mutt, I'll rip ypur face off,"

I'm guessing it's "I'll rip your", yesyes?

Fun ficlet.

Hi! Lol, nice fanfic. I like mine better, but mine is longer than I wanted it to be. Anyway, I hope it's enjoyable to read.

It is kind of funny, though. Mokuba had enough sense to run. He knew what was coming.
