As Red as Any Blood

Fai snaps a bit and forgets to be diffident. Kurogane approves of this. Written for the Porn Battle prompt: Fai/Kurogane, territory. Fang-Porn with Characterization, I-3, slight spoilers Nihon arc

Character(s): Fai D. Fluorite, Kurogane
Pairing(s): Fai/Kurogane

Fai stalked through his set of rooms to Kurogane’s, growling under his breath. He tried not to do that but he couldn’t actually help it right this moment.

He knew that Kurogane had oaths he needed to keep, that Tomoyo-hime was his liege and would be until one of them died; they’d talked about that before agreeing to settle in Nihon. Most of the time Fai didn’t mind at all. Tomoyo was a charming woman with a delightful sense of humor and he had her to thank for significant parts of his sanity. They had wonderful chats about their favorite grumpy ninja.

It was just that he’d already been hungry, today, and one of the courtiers had made a remark about there being nothing Kurogane wouldn’t do or give his master, and it had grated on Fai’s soul.

Kurogane was his.

Kurogane was also leaning against the wall beside his open balcony screen, a simple robe tied loosely about him, reading quietly. He looked up when Fai more or less slammed the hall screen closed behind him and demanded, a bit irately, "What’s wrong with you?"

"I’m hungry." That was the least of it, but it was somewhere to start, and something they both understood by now.

Kurogane snorted and laid his book aside. "Eat, then, before you start throwing tantrums." He held out a hand, only to blink as Fai stalked across the room and slid down to straddle his lap, winding his arms around Kurogane’s shoulders and nuzzling his throat. "Fai?" His hands settled slowly on Fai’s back.

"Really hungry." He licked slowly up the line of Kurogane’s neck, distracted and husky with the scent of his prey. "Mmm." His arms tightened around Kurogane and he pressed closer.

Kurogane was breathing quickly and Fai could feel his pulse against his lips. "Go ahead." He tipped his head back.

Fai purred with pleasure and bit down, twining tight around Kurogane. Richness filled his mouth, warm and satisfying, and he let his hands wander over Kurogane’s shoulders, down his chest, stroking under the robe, and back up to comb through his hair. "Mine," he murmured indistinctly against his prey’s throat and sucked firmly.

The way Kurogane shuddered under him, the sounds he made as his hands kneaded slowly against Fai’s back, were as satisfying as his taste.

Gradually the heat of shared life smoothed away the corners of Fai’s temper and he settled comfortably against Kurogane, nuzzling his throat and lapping softly until the blood stopped. He felt calm and content, and a tiny corner of his mind thought that was strange. Most of him, though, was just pleased to lie against Kurogane’s chest and feel large hands stroking up and down his back.

"Better?" Kurogane asked, quietly.

Fai smiled. "Much." He felt Kurogane’s lips curve, in turn, against his temple.

He drifted off like that, warm and happy, and when he woke up the next morning and tried to be apologetic Kurogane just snorted at him and pulled him close, one hand cupping the back of Fai’s head, to murmur one word in his ear.

    *flappy hands* Eeee! And for good measure, eeee! My god they’re adorable. And Tomoyo having conversations with Fai about grumpy ninjas! And fixing Fai! Eee!

  2. keleosnoonna@livejournal

    Kyaaaaaaaaaa!!! So good!!!
    I loved it!! Possessive!Fai is HOT!
    Great job! Looking forward to reading more of your works XD

  3. owari@livejournal

    Very nice. It’s a shame there aren’t more fics with possessive Fai in them. It’s usually Kurogane. Thanks for giving us something different for a change. Oh, and hot. ^_~

      1. owari@livejournal

        I’m quite fond of the notion that Fai has hidden depths of territoriality, especially as a vampire.

        As am I. We only really got a glimpse of it in canon back in volume… 18, was it? When the group were still in Infinity? Stop toying with us, CLAMP, and show us what we really want to see. XD

        But yes, I always welcome more territorial Fai fics. And seme!Fai fics. There aren’t nearly enough of those either. ::sad face::

  4. fengtianshi@livejournal

    No, really… it’s intense and powerful and it touches the right strings! I love this little jelousy for Tomoyo and I think your Kuro handled it GREAT! <3

      1. fengtianshi@livejournal

        Sure thing! XD
        Even because being territoria is a way for wanting something and taking it, and Kuro wanted Fay to be that way for such long time… ç____ç <3


    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah! *glomps the fic*
    May I say that the ending melted me to a puddle? *big thumbs up*

  6. Amelia

    O-M-G! @_@ U ROCK ;D!! As does this Absolutely AMAZING fic XD!!!
    I mean just when I thought nothing could compete with the mind-boggling combination of HOT & SWEET Kuro/Fai, I find THIS; Possessive fai & kuro-chan who LIKES it! ^_^ My brain however just Couldn’t handle that level of H-O-T-ness & was thus Melted into a puddle of Goo ;p!! So unfortunately the only thing I can say to even Try & express the sheer JOY that this FABULOUS Fic has brought me = “Gaahhh”!!! ^_~
    P.S. That last scene put such a goofy grin on my face, that I don’t think I’m going to be able to stop smiling for a week ;D! That alone makes me want to Thank you profusely for writing such a Superb Story, but I’m afraid it has also ensured my Addiction to your Wonderful work ;P!! So Please for ALL the Hopelessly Addicted fangirls out there, Plz Write MUCH M-O-R-E 3D (& let me know when u do at , so that I can come bother u with more Random Rambling, Ranting, Raving, disguised as an actual Review XD)!!!

    1. Icon for BranchBranch Post author

      *sparkles* Thank you so much!

      I definitely hope to write more for these two; they’re so much fun to play with! And I figure, with Clamp going for the tear-jerker ending, there will probably be lots of motivation for writing them better ones. Fai and his Kuro-pyon totally deserve happy endings with lots of hot sex.

    *growls* Possessive Fai is so hot. I seriously can’t believe you like all the couples I do. ShiroganexAkira, TsuzukixHisoka, RenjixIchigo, and now I’ve stumbled across KuroganexFai from you! XD Great job.

      1. Sunao Fujimori

        Hell yeah. I’m the type of person who likes the Uke and the Seme to ALWAYS stay that role. I know some people like to switch it around, but sometimes it doesn’t always work. I think Fai would still be the Uke, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be possessive, like Hisoka, so in the end I’m happy. ^_^
