Hello and good morning/afternoon/evening/middle-of-the-night! I'm so very sorry I haven't updated lately! I've been busy working on a graphic novel type thing with my friend.....it's for my creative writing class and it's due this coming Wednesday, so I've spent almost every moment that I'm not at school or asleep sitting on her sisters' bed writing and messing with her laptop.....haha! Anywhp-za-wutz-it! I've decided to try my hand at writing a serious fanfic! What think you, people who sometimes read my incoherent babbling? Should I attempt something so drastically different from what I normally write? (It really is....even my stories for creative writing are never serious.....lol)

Here is a hesitant beginning for a serious-type fic......and I mean hesitant. I'm not sure if I'll keep going with this or not....

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: I do not own Junjou Romantica nor do I own any of the characters.....just sayin'.....:D

"Yesterday, hundreds mourned the loss of renowned author, Usami Akihiko. Usami, age 31, died unexpectedly of natural causes on Monday. The memorial service was held yesterd—" Misaki blinked in confusion as the newscaster's image fizzed away. He looked away from the television to see Sumi holding the remote.

"Misaki?" Sumi set the remote down on the coffee table. "You're in the same place I left you last night. And in the same clothes."

Misaki looked down at the suit he was wearing. "Oh…I guess I forgot to go change." He tried to smooth out some of the larger wrinkles without success.

"You promised your brother you'd be okay by yourself, but you don't look very okay to me."

"No, I'm okay! I was just tired and fell asleep here, that's all!" The dark circles under his eyes told a different story. It was obvious that he hadn't slept in days.

Sumi sighed. "Well, all right. Go upstairs and change. I brought you some food; I'll put it in the fridge for you."

"Thanks, Sempai. I appreciate it." Misaki smiled; it made him look even more tired than before. He went obediently upstairs to change.

*stares at screen in horror* Ugh....this is terrible.....but, my brain is starting to fizz away like the newscaster and I have no power left to fix anything.......I've had a long day.....haha! Please, review and tell me if you think I should maybe run with this....if so, I might come back and fix this so it's less brain melting.......not that there's any hope for my brain.......goodnight.....*slumps onto keyboard* Thank you for reading!
