FAKE First Year Together: Justice (June), Chapter 11

Thanks for coming back to my journal to read this WORKSAFE chapter. I wish I could have gotten it up sooner, but the last ten days have been a kind of busy-hell. Today I was very busy, too, but at least I didn't have to go to work.

I went to the gym today for a little pre-emptive working off of calories. Tomorrow the gym will be closed, so if I want to get some exercise, I'll have to go for a bike ride. I'm fortunate that I don't have to cook Christmas dinner tomorrow, although I won't be able to avoid it completely like I've done for the past three years. My usual Christmas routine is to settle in front of the TV with a pizza and watch the Star Wars marathon. My husband works almost every Christmas day, and I usually pack my father off to spend Christmas with other family members. This year, however, my father is spending Christmas at home, and is actually cooking. My husband isn't working. My job is to make a green salad for us to eat with dinner, as well as a trifle for dessert. I hope that the Star Wars movie I'm going to miss during Christmas dinner is one of the lame ones and not one of the good ones. As you can see, there's a lot of Christmas spirit percolating here!

Hell, I also should wrap gifts. I bought all my gifts today, except for the one I 'efficiently' bought for my father two months ago and have managed to lose in the meantime. See, this is why I never buy gifts early. I can't tell you how many times this has happened. I sure hope it turns up. Wish me luck. Once I lost a Christmas gift and didn't find it again for three years! Truly. It was wrapped and everything.

One last thing: If you like Yaoi manga, I strongly recommend that you go to Yaoi Daily and read New York New York by Marimo Ragawa. It's amazing. It's being posted by [info]soulcalibour. The most recent post is here, and you can go back to the beginning from there. Otherwise, you can find a download for the whole thing on There's no overt sex, but lots of plot, affection, character growth and feelings. The seme was a jerk near the beginning, but he got a lot better as time went by. I absolutely loved it.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

FAKE First Year Together: Justice (June)

by Brit Columbia

Fandom: Fake
Pairing: Dee Laytner and Randy (Ryo) MacLean
Spoilers; Set after Volume 7 of the original Fake series by Sanami Matoh
Timing: This story is the sequel to FAKE First Year Together: A New Day (May), which I wrote to be set directly after Book 7 finished. It's basically a continuation of the manga.
Author's notes: Alan Radley and his grandmother, Mrs. Wright, are characters who appeared in FAKE First Year Together: A New Day (May). A number of characters from A New Day will be weaving in and out of all my stories. Here's a link to the cast of thousands: (Brit’s Character List for New Day), and if you have trouble remembering all Sanami Matoh's characters, I made a list of them, too, which is here: Sanami Matoh's complete character list for FAKE, volumes 1 - 7
