Ouran - Kyouya x Tamaki

Fandom: Ouran High School Host Club
Pairing: Kyouya Ootori x Tamaki Suou
Theme set: Beta
Rating: PG
Notes: My first. Ouran-themed fic, that is. And that's there for the record. =D Also, the almost-execution of quotation marks and the absence of italics where you think they should be is highly intentional. And the death of correct comma, semicolon, dash, and colon placements, but that's why I love this community. Still, this was finished and edited at midnight, so it might be a little ruffled round the edges. Pardon me if that's so. *bows*

01 – Walking

When the Suou car lines up behind the Ootori one in front of the school, Tamaki bounds out of his door and yells "Kyouya! Good morning!", while Kyouya, still sleepy, maneuevers slowly out of his own seat with a muffled "Shut up."
02 – Waltz

Haruhi says she has no experience in ballroom dancing at all and while Kyouya shrugs, Tamaki pulls him up by the arm and says, "That’s horrible! Kyouya, we must show her how to do the waltz," and that is how the rest of the day goes.
03 – Wishes

One day Tamaki lets it slip that he’s to have dinner by himself in the third mansion again, and Kyouya, after seeing him blush furiously, invites him to have dinner at the Ootori estate, where they can both eat together in the main mansion.  
04 – Wonder

During dinner, when Kyouya can’t finish his food, he watches Tamaki eat the leftovers and wonders why the feeling is so familiar to him; why it feels as if he has watched Tamaki eat his unwanted food at this table so many times before (because he has, of course, but he doesn’t know this).
05 – Worry

“Fuyumi worries about you,” Tamaki whispers in Kyouya’s ear, and thinks in the back of his mind and so do I.  

06 – Whimsy

“Tamaki-senpai, why are you wearing Kyouya-senpai’s glasses?” asks Haruhi in a bored tone, while next to her Kyouya sighs and mumbles, “Because he wanted to.”
07 - Waste/Wasteland

Kyouya takes a bite out of a banana and dangles it nonchalantly over the trash can, but Tamaki runs over before he can drop it and takes it from him, saying “What a waste, Kyouya,” and proceeds to eat the rest with extra fervor.
08 - Whiskey and rum

“I told you not to drink so much,” mumbles Kyouya, while Tamaki slurs something along the lines of why don’t you carry me, and Kyouya passes it off as the whiskey and rum speaking—just the whiskey and rum.
09 – War

Dear Kyouya, Tamaki writes, I’m sorry the business deal has come to this, you know, the not talking thing, but my dad said it should end soon, so please, Kyouya, stop being so silent, it’s kind of scary when you are…come back, okay, I—we— miss you.

10 – Weddings

“I got another engagement request today…” says Tamaki, and Kyouya finishes the rest of the sentence with him: “…but she just wasn’t the one.”

11 – Birthday

Kyouya opens his notebook one day and sees Happy Birthday, Mother! written in colourful, glittery ink and pretends he noticed nothing, even when Tamaki waves at him enthusiastically from across the room.
12 – Blessing

Every single day at seven o’clock in the morning, Kyouya dials Tamaki’s number (which is first on speed dial), says “It’s time to wake up, you moron,” and hangs up; and every single day at seven o’clock in the morning Tamaki wonders how he would function without Kyouya in his life.
13 – Bias

“We won’t get anything out of it, so we’re not doing it,” says Kyouya adamantly of a scheme involving a litter of puppies and hair dye, and (as expected) won’t back down even when Tamaki pouts and says something about the ‘stupid Ootori merit bias’.
14 – Burning

“I’m never walking you home in the rain again,” sniffles Tamaki in bed, and Kyouya tells him to take his medicine before he dies and shoves two pills (taken from an Ootori Hospital bottle) into the bedridden one’s mouth.
15 – Breathing

It’s funny, Kyouya thinks, how Tamaki’s breathing sounds just like he is talking: little wheezes that seem to say don’t leave me at the exact moment Kyouya stands up to leave.

16 – Breaking

“Master Tamaki’s fever is breaking,” says the nurse, “and I’m sure it’s because you stayed, Master Kyouya,” she finishes, blushing (although Kyouya doesn’t have a clue as to why).

17 – Belief

Kyouya writes down in his notebook that it is not scientifically proven that a person can get better just because someone they are comfortable with is there—no, comfortable is not the word—someone they like—no, wait—someone they love?—oh, God, no—God, no, not that, he thinks, and scribbles out the sentence with a permanent marker.  
18 – Balloon

The next time they see Kirimi, Tamaki makes her a balloon in the shape of a heart and whispers something in her ear, and the next thing Kyouya sees is a little girl in his lap shoving a red balloon in his face, telling him Tamaki is giving him his heart.
19 - Balcony

One winter night Tamaki shows up on his balcony and Kyouya takes him in because it’s five below and snowing and says be quiet, be still, be…not you, Tamaki, while I call for a car to take you home.

20 – Bane

“Tamaki, would you please just shut up for five minutes?”

21 – Quiet

The room is eerily silent, and Kyouya realises Tamaki is actually following instructions.
22 – Quirks

Every single time he looks up, Tamaki seems to be laughing: laughing at his own jokes (which are very redundant), at something someone else said (like when the chauffer told Kyouya there was three feet of snow outside and they couldn't drive at all), at something they overhear on television (because everything on television is funny to Tamaki)—and even at Kyouya, but that laugh is (for some reason) softer, more delicate, less deliberate.
23 – Question

“You want me to sleep on the where?”
24 – Quarrel

It seems pretty obvious, Kyouya thinks, that he should be able to sleep in his own bed and Tamaki on the floor, but the blonde thinks otherwise and is putting up a pretty heated argument about it.
25 – Quitting

“Please, Kyouya, I’m tired—I’ll sleep better, I’ll shut up, I’ll…I’ll stay on my side, I promise.”    

26 – Jump

The promise was that Tamaki would stay on the left and Kyouya on the right, but in the morning Kyouya smells French shampoo and a dainty cologne that he does not use and realises, panicked, that the left and right sides had somehow merged in the middle of the night.  

27 – Jester

“Don’t get up yet,” Tamaki says, snuggling closer, and this time Kyouya knows his ears are playing tricks on him.
28 – Jousting

“Get off me,” Kyouya says stiffly, shoving Tamaki away, who only comes back to grasp Kyouya’s shirt again saying wait, hold on, stop, but there is going to be none of that, Kyouya has decided, and leaves.
29 – Jewel

Tamaki lies on the bedsheets (the ones that smell like expensive laundry detergent and, most importantly, Kyouya) and plays with the ring on the bedside table, the one that Kyouya wears, the one that he will someday give to his future…wife.   
30 – Just

Kyouya comes back in the room, still unwashed, and says, looking like he is trying very hard, "I just don't get it."

31 – Smirk

In the hall outside Master Kyouya’s main quarters, a maid listens in on the conversation between the two young masters she sees most often and nearly smirks: they’re finally getting it together, are they?
32 – Sorrow

“Just don’t get what, Kyouya,” Tamaki smiles sadly.
33 – Stupidity

Those notebooks that Kyouya has don’t exist for nothing—he has too many to count for Tamaki Suou, and if he has to look through the last few (which, incidentally, he just did), he’s going to realise that he has missed something important for a very long time and has only very recently gotten the point, but even so he doesn’t want to say it, doesn’t want to tell his best friend that he finally knows his secret; so he leaves and says we’ll talk later, and maybe they will, and maybe they won’t.
34 – Serenade

Mid-afternoon and the sounds coming from the main hall is Fuyumi’s piano, is Chopin’s Raindrops, is a bittersweet melody that almost says, that almost says…
35 – Sarcasm

“Is this your clever little way of telling me you’re in love with me, Tamaki?”

36 – Sordid

“No, of course not, Kyouya, you know me—I’d rather tell you in front of everybody, I’d rather embarrass you in front of the world.”
37 – Soliloquy

Kyouya thinks, yes, that sounds about right, and then Tamaki laughs to his piano keys and says, “Isn’t this awkward,” and smiles, playing a loud crescendo to drown out the rest of his thoughts.
38 – Sojourn

When he’s close enough to see the piano notes without squinting behind his glasses (and even he does not know how he got that far without the remembrance of moving), Tamaki tilts his head up and leans back, whispering the words here it is before brushing his lips across Kyouya’s, then arching into it as if to say, and let me stay here, let me stay there.
39 – Share

They each fall backwards and Kyouya says, “Oh, God,” and Tamaki at the same time wonders aloud, “Now what?”  
40 – Solitary

After a disjointed silence Kyouya gets up to leave, to sort out his thoughts, to think, but before he can go Tamaki wraps his fingers around Kyouya’s wrist and smiles into eyes that, to the rest of the world, are sharp and serious, but to Tamaki (who knows better than anyone else) are weary and spent.

41 – Nowhere

“Don't forget to come back,” Tamaki whispers, and Kyouya swallows down his gasp to say, “I’m not going anywhere, anymore.”
42 – Neutral

When the clock strikes three they each seem to wake up from their previous world; Kyouya shaking his head and saying he has to go soon, Tamaki laughing loudly and remarking on how the day has gone by so quickly.
43 – Nuance

The finer nuances in life, Kyouya writes down in his new notebook, are the benefits of being rich, being sly, being smart, and being in love—and then he realises that is Tamaki speaking, not him, and crosses out yet another sentence in permanent marker.
44 – Near

“I’m going,” calls Tamaki from his doorway, and Kyouya gets up to see him off as he has always done, only this time he finds himself walking a little faster behind and leaning in to say good-bye a little…a lot…closer than usual.  
45 – Natural

When they return to the Host Club, a customer asks Kyouya what he thinks of love, and he feels his heartbeat race and his palms sweat (which has never happened before) and he says, he says, “I suppose it’s important,” and as the girls giggle behind their fingers Tamaki smiles behind his teacup.  

46 – Horizon

Between the hours of their first kiss and their last, Kyouya sees not hours but minutes; not weeks but days; not finances but benefits; not merits but Tamaki and he tries to care about this sudden change in horizons but he realises, to his horror, that he does not.
47 – Valiant

“How long?” asks Kyouya in the frigid cold outside the school’s back entrance; and Tamaki says not long but Kyouya hits him and says not like that, you idiot, how long have you loved me, and Tamaki kisses him (cold noses bumping, warm hands on frozen cheeks) for what seems an eternity and says, “There’s your answer.”  
48 - Virtuous

Before his group of starry-eyed girls, Tamaki explains how fair maidens must be chaste and innocent and Kyouya can’t help but call him a hypocrite later--later, when they are all alone in the dark and being the very opposite of ‘chaste’ and ‘innocent’.

49 – Victory

In the middle of one of Tamaki’s endless rambling sessions one evening, he slips out an and that’s why I love you, Kyouya and blushes like mad, and Kyouya sits there and laughs, feeling as though he has just won something very large and wonderful.
50 – Defeat

"I got another engagement request today…” says Tamaki, and Kyouya raises an eyebrow as he listens to the rest of the sentence: “…and I told her that, along with everyone else, she had lost the contest, because I had already found…” he grins so wide as Kyouya looks away, “…the one.”

This is. Incredibly sweet and sappy and eeeee Kyouya's notebooks and the permanent marker and and and.

I'm just sitting here with a huge grin on my face right now. So cute! And Kyouya is such an idiot and so in-character with his deliberate obliviousness and the Chopin! And Fuyumi's piano! I love the little details you put in like that. ♥

So much love. Also, you managed to make it in sequence without messing up the numbers and that's even more love. ♥♥♥

asdlkjsalkdjalksj. Thank you so much. When I posted it, I was so afraid people would be like, 'It's so out of character', but I haven't heard that yet and I am extremely relieved. XD Yeah, I'm a dork. Thank you again! ♥♥♥
Aug. 18th, 2006 03:52 pm (UTC)
Oh, I'm in love! These are great. I love the way you used them to build an entire story. And I think you really got both voices down really well. Those two are just so wonderful together. #11 was my favorite.
Aug. 19th, 2006 12:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I was afraid it'd be terribly OOC, because Kyouya is such a pain to write for me, but I guess you proved me wrong. :D

Thanksss! :D
Aug. 18th, 2006 05:22 pm (UTC)
I wanted to say something but I think something just melted inside me. I can't remember if it was my brain or that portion of me who thought that this was hopelessly sweet. I'm sorry. Let me rephrase.

I think it's wonderful. Especially the bit about Kyoya waking Tamaki up every morning with a phone call.
Aug. 19th, 2006 12:08 pm (UTC)
Awwwwwww, I love your review. *hugs* Thank you so much.
Aug. 18th, 2006 08:31 pm (UTC)
alkhkaldf. That was awesome. The way it tied together and how each sentence subtly tied to the prompt and oh god.

I think birthday was my favourite. It cracked my shit up. XD
Aug. 19th, 2006 12:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! And yeah, on that one I was like, 'I know EXACTLY how this shall go!' And thus, it went. :3
Aug. 18th, 2006 08:42 pm (UTC)
These were absolutely adorable, I have such a wide smile on my face now!! I think I liked 'Birthday' the most, it honestly just cracked me up completely, I could totally see it in my head, it was so Tamaki.
Aug. 19th, 2006 12:09 pm (UTC)
Haha, thank you v. much :DDD
Aug. 18th, 2006 09:04 pm (UTC)
Awe, this is really sweet :). Thank you very much for sharing!
Aug. 19th, 2006 12:09 pm (UTC)
You're welcome. Thank you for the review!
Aug. 18th, 2006 09:07 pm (UTC)
So sweet, and like a lot of others, I'm smiling right now.
Loved it, and will add it to my memories.

Your characterization makes me incredibly happy.

P.S. I have a friend who leaves me notes like in number eleven.
Aug. 19th, 2006 12:13 pm (UTC)
Your telling me that my characterization makes you incredibly happy makes me incredibly happy. Thus, we both win. XD
