...or are the scanlations of the Gravitation manga really hard to follow?

Is it bad manners to rec really ancient fics? Like I care. I just ran across something really charming and felt the need to share. (And how often do I share a fic I liked instead of mocking one I didn't?)

What I love is that this is a romantic fic poking fun at the clichés of its own genre in the guise of Shuichi poking fun at Yuki about the clichés in his romance novels -- while indulging in the shameless cliché of a romantic walk in the rain.

Aja makes it look easy and fresh, fitting the meta-humor seamlessly into a completely believable, in-character interaction. Shuichi is his light and flaky self without being a complete airhead. (Because after all, would Yuki put up with someone incapable of at least the occasional intelligent conversation?) Yuki is cranky and defensive and hopelessly besotted underneath it all. And I am so very guilty of the same clichés. (mumble Yakuza blush)

Short, sweet, and funny. I give it two thumbs up the ass. (Hey, this is yaoi, after all!)
