I haven't made fandom icons in far too long. I've been too distracted by making hipster things and not wanting to mess with Muse fandom icons that I forgot how satisfying the process of making icons from manga images can be. Text! Colors! Textures!!!!

Okay, enjoy these, I'm freaking stoked over them.

The rest are here @ [community profile] baller

Oh no I'm writing an AoKise ficlet whaaaaat

Title: Rainbow's End
Auhor: [personal profile] saikou
Fandom: Kuroko no Basket
Rating: PG for now.
Pairing: Kagami/Kuroko and some strange combination of Aomine thrown in there as well.
Words: 4000~
Crossposted: Tumblr and LJ
Summary: Kuroko no Coffehouse A/U

A/N: I feel like I need to sit everyone down and explain this first. Most important thing to explain, before anything else, is that I am largely incapable of writing anything short. So this is destined to be long. Really long. The premise is “Coffeehouse A/U”, because I realized that I’ve been fandom life for over a decade and have never written a coffeehouse A/U (what is wrong with me). Now, because I can’t do anything halfway, I took the concept way too far.

Set in America. The West, at any rate. This seems inconsequential to me. I write what I know, and setting an entire novel in Japan was enough. Their names remain. Now, since I had no idea what to do with coffeehouse people, I again went to what I know.

Kagami is a successful sports journalist starting his first novel. He sets up workshop in the Rainbow’s End coffeehouse, which is probably the most pretentiously hipster place he could have imagined ending up. There he makes some acquaintances that will throw all of his plans off track, but not exactly in a bad way…

Instead of being King B-Ball Swag in this universe, Aomine is King Hipster. I think that alone is worth the price of admission. Let’s begin.

Title: Untitled Ma'mon Flashback
Auhor: [personal profile] saikou
Universe: The Nothing Children
Rating: G
Characters: Demide - Ko'mied - Sayan
Words: 1600
Summary: Demide and Ko'mied are 4th year Provisionals, and a chance meeting in the practice studio introduces them to the possibility of incredible things. 

A/N: The Ma'mon are just my favorite thing in The Nothing Children. The concept is a creation entirely of TNC, though the characters of Ko'mied and Demide both have foundations elsewhere in the former COLOR Universe canon. This flashback was something I needed to write, just to satisfy my own curiosity about how they met and how to describe their individual talents outside of Silios' perspective. I'm still trying to figure out whether I want to include a few different flashbacks like this (in 3rd person) within the story.

Anyway, enjoy if you wish!

Unbelievably, Ko’mied obeyed. He didn’t even question it; it was simply like, in that moment, both of them knew what needed to be done. What needed to be done was whatever Sayan said. )

Title: Empire City: The Heights
Author: Vee
Rating: R
Genre: Contemporary, Dark, Mystery
Chapter: 03
Summary: Our universe is a system of thieves and liars, killers and whores, and you're staring into the sun. Giancarlo Salomon is dead, and no one even has the illusion of choice anymore. The king is dead, and until we know who needs to suffer, everyone will. Where is everyone, Chief Templeton? Can you tell me the crevices The Empire has disappeared to? Until you can, let's play this game.
POV: Transcript

A/N: There phone conversations lay so much of the plot foundation, here. Some of it may require some jigsawing with the Empire City timeline, but all in all I have to say I'm happy with the little web that's been woven. Julian, you're beautiful and so, so dangerous. These two are a formidable pair, but as you can see, their mutual distaste for trusting the other very often gets in

There's going to come a day that I'll say “Come back, Julian. Come back and I'll help you straighten this out.” )

Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Kagami/Aomine
Words: 2000
Summary: Kagami congratulates Aomine on a very flashy win in his own special way.

A/N: Another fill for a kink meme prompt! I was super busy with writing gay basketball yesterday, it seems...! Now this one, I do ship. Kagami and Aomine are basically the embodiment of my #1 ship "type", so I couldn't resist! Especially since this prompt was asking for two of my other favorite things. *tugs at collar* This one was satisfying to write.

I was just trying to win. )

Title: Disappointing
Auhor: [personal profile] saikou
Fandom: Kuroko no Basket
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Kagami/Akashi, implied Kuroko/Kagami, implied GoM/Akashi
Words: 3800
Summary: In the immortal words of our lord and savior Kanyesus: look, you need to crawl 'fore you ball.

A/N: Fill for a kink meme prompt. I don't even ship Kagami/Akashi. In fact, fandom at large knows so little about Akashi still, there's a lot of artistic license involved unless you want to incorporate scissors and/or eye-gouging (hooray for canon insanity). I do, however, ship Kagami/Kuroko and GoM/Akashi in general, so I managed to pull both of those together and twist the implications around to facilitate the incredibly appealing idea of Kagami/Akashi body worship (which was the prompt).

Akashi was beyond feelings. He was armored by indifference to those beneath him. He was the Monkey King. He was divine. )

The Nothing Children

Author's Notes: The story's trekking (twerking) along nicely at this point. Better than I'd been prepared for, actually. I got rather pessimistic about this lovely little universe for a bit, but I'm trying to turn that around. My only worry is that the world seems too convoluted or too dense with fact and not enough action. Those may be my misgivings only, but if you have any concerns please let me know. I want this story to be great and I've already tweaked and reforged so much that it only seems natural for me to keep doing so. So yes, let me know please!

Introducing my beloved Demit'che in this chapter. ;) I have a thing for jackasses, but I promise you he'll grow on you.

Enjoy, and always be Colora. ♥

Glossary of Terms

This glossary is unfiltered but the story is still being posted to a filter while I work out the kinks (heh, no not figuratively, this is quite PG thank you); if you want to read it, holla. I'd always love another set of eyes on it.

Soon I really hope to also have an Audio or Video guide to pronunciation of names and words. I'll need to either look awesome for that or get a better microphone. XD If I looked like any of the main characters I'd say I'd be cosplaying for it.
