rana name

GetBackers: Ban/Ginji, Stages of Love

Series Title: Applied Sciences
Title: Perpetual Motion
Author: Rana Eros
Theme: Commitment
Rating: Boykissing! And not much else.
Previous Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Author's Note: And it's elizacakeEliza for the win!

Paul says something about the inevitability of friends growing apart. Ban misses the exact phrasing because Ginji starts a fight over their
food, but it doesn't matter. They're not friends; they're partners. They're the GetBackers, and getting each other back when necessary isn't habit, isn't instinct, it just is, like a pulse. And there's only one reason the pulse will ever stop.

No point in worrying about it. They've got business to drum up, jobs to do, money to make. Scores to settle. People to harass.

Ginji kisses him after Paul kicks them out.

They've got this too.

GetBackers: Ban/Ginji, Five Senses

Series Title: Fine Arts
Title: To Be Savored
Author: Rana Eros
Theme: Taste
Rating: Boykissing in slightly more detail.
Previous Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Author's Note: All hail elizacakeEliza, Goddess of Betas.

Ban's got a keen sense of taste that he passes off as smell so as not to weird people out. Ginji's palate is more limited, but he works with what he has, and it's generally enough.

It's enough to notice the difference between Ban's left earlobe and his right. Enough that he picks up more salt from the small of Ban's back in the summer, where sweat gathers. Enough that he knows what part of Ban's richness is coffee, and what part is just Ban.

With practice, he thinks he'll pick up more subtleties.

He's more than happy to try.

GetBackers: Toshiki/Kazuki/Juubei, Stages of Love

Series Title: Filled With You
Title: This Dance Is the Joy
Author: Rana Eros
Theme: Commitment
Rating: And she inexplicits her way to the finish line! Which is sad, cuz I dig me some nekkid Juubei.
Previous Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Author's Note: Betaed by runefallstarRune and elizacakeEliza. All titles grabbed from Rumi.

Marauders still come down from the Beltline, though in fewer numbers than before. They've heard the rumors: Raitei defied the gods of Mugenjou and survived, and his old followers now guard Lower Town. Toshiki never followed Raitei, but that doesn't matter anymore. His goals are Kazuki's, Juubei's. His place is with them, and so he stays.

He and Juubei train together, re-learning how to coordinate their efforts. They coordinate in other areas as well, and Kazuki smiles. Kazuki smiles, and it holds them both.

They hold Kazuki and each other. It requires strength, but also grace. Elegance.

They have that.
