July Stories

Title: Essentials
Author: Starsea
Medium: Fanfic
Theme: Little Black Dress
Genre: General/Romance
Version: Manga
Rating: PG

Every woman should have one. Hers was a slinky number from Chanel, with black ribbons that criss-crossed all the way up her back, teasing the viewer with glimpses of smooth, golden flesh. She loved it for three essential reasons.

1. It showed off her legs and reminded everyone that she had the best pair on the planet.

2. It was the only piece of clothing she owned that was black (underwear didn't count) and so whenever she wore it, she immediately made an impact.

3. It was very, very easy to take off in a hurry, which was why Kunzite loved it, too.


Title: Heartbroken
Author: Starsea
Medium: Fanfic
Theme: Mourning
Genre: General
Version: Anime/Manga
Rating: G

"Minako?" Artemis nudged open the door and peered around the side. "Mina?" He spoke softly, partly so Minako's mother wouldn't hear and partly due to Minako's state of mind at this time. She was still lying on the bed, face bured in her pillow, so he walked in and jumped up.

"I can't stand it, Artemis." Her voice was muffled. "He's gone. I can't believe he's gone."

Artemis felt helpless. Nothing in his life had prepared him for this situation. "It's not the end of the world-"

"How can you say that?!" Burning, bloodshot eyes glared at him, the blue iris almost fluorescent against the red. "Sasaki Akito is dead! Nothing will ever be the same again, do you understand? NOTHING!" The head was buried in the pillow once more.

Artemis counted to ten. "I understand you're upset, but do you really need to wear those clothes and put up pictures of him everywhere?"

"I'm in MOURNING!" Minako snapped.

"I didn't realise the Gothic Lolita fad was about mourning," Artemis said dryly, and leapt off the bed as Minako threw a stuffed animal at him. "At least come down and eat something!" he added. "Fasting won't bring him back!"

"We're all fasting, Artemis, it's a sign of respect!"

Artemis finally lost it. "Minako, we're talking about a character in a SOAP OPERA! He wasn't REAL!"

"How DARE YOU?!" Minako leapt to her feet, not caring if her mother heard. "He was real to ME! To thousands of innocent, vulnerable teenage girls! Sasaki-san carried our hearts so gently in his hands and now he is gone!" She flopped back on the bed, arm over her eyes. "If you can't understand what a terrible tragedy this is, I don't want to speak to you." She pointed a dramatic finger. "Get. out."

Artemis turned and slunk into the hallway. He decided to go and see Luna. Luna would understand - Usagi was in mourning, too.

How perfect! I think maybe that's why we should all own a little black dress.

And, of course, number 3 is probably the most important reason why. :)

Well, it's true, a good one can save you so much time and trouble. Especially when it comes to number 3. :3

ALIZE help me pressure Starsea into writing Black Dress Smut!

Already there!

Please oh please oh please, sea_thoughts, write about number 3!!! And I don't want to hear that you don't do smut well because your smut is HOT! :)

Well, now you must tell me: is it like the movies where by untying the ribbon in the back makes the whole thing come off? Or is the fit well enough and the fabric giving enough to yank it over her head easily? Tear away straps? Or does the top slide down and the bottom pull up easily?

MUST KNOW! Hey you know that long plane ride you're going to have? May I request BLACK DRESS SMUT??? I think alize can get on board with that, too?!!!

Plus I need something to un-blue my ovaries because I reread "Quaint Little Concept".


There's a sequel to "Quaint Little Concept" called "Wish Fulfillment". :)

Untying the ribbon doesn't make it fall off but it does mean that all she has to do is slide her arms out and it's off. But it's also short, so if they're REALLY in a hurry, he can just push the skirt up. 0:)

Essentials:
3. It was very, very easy to take off in a hurry, which was why Kunzite loved it, too.
*laughs* He probably loves any of her dresses that fits this rule.

Heartbroken:
Leave it to Minako to be dramatic about the death of a soap opera character! Oh silly girl.

Ironically enough, what you depicted in this ficlet actually happened in where I live earlier - thousands were mourning and a movie was later made because the audience demanded it. How insane.

*bookmarks this entry*

*lol* Yeah, I'm sure he does love the short dresses. I always see Kunzite as a leg man.

Really? Are you talking about "Serenity"? Or was this another movie?

It's actually a local movie called Turning Point. I don't see why the character is so hugely popular though.

Number 3 is a very good point :]

And I am in love with your second piece. So funny, but so realistic!

Number 3 is a very good point :]

Yes, yes, it is. ;)

I am in love with your second piece. So funny, but so realistic!

I'm sure every teenager's been there at least once. :D

I'll be updating this entry with more stories, so please check back!

*grins*
Artemis finally lost it. "Minako, we're talking about a character in a SOAP OPERA! He wasn't REAL!"
You know, silly little me initially thought it was Kunzite she was mourning, but then Artemis mentioned the pictures and I went: "Huh, strange. Didn't realise they had cameras on them in the Dark Kingdom."
*grins more*

So anyway, these drabbles cheered me up, thank you!

*LOL* Yeah, I was hoping the reader would be fooled into thinking she was mourning a real person before the revelation, when the reader would suddenly switch to Artemis's side. I'm glad the drabbles cheered you up!

:O Hmm no 1 and 2 are pretty much right when it comes to my little black dress, but no 3... it is almost impossible to take off because it's such a tight fit! Something's clearly wrong with mine, I will need another :P

Reading this was lovely procrastination ;) Although the first one was of course too short (!!!). The second one was hilarious, poor poor cats...

Hugs!

Well, Minako's dress is short... and has those ribbons. ;)

Reading this was lovely procrastination ;) Although the first one was of course too short (!!!).

Bit like Minako's dress then. ;) *lol*

The second one was hilarious, poor poor cats...

Why must they train two of the biggest fangirls in the world? Poor dears.

^-^ Thanks... that was a nice break in the story line up. ^-^

Um, thanks? ^^; How do you mean 'the story line up'? Which was your favourite?

"Heartbroken" of course... that was the story I was talking about. And the story line up, well I was working on the voting and they were all getting really serious and angsty and dramany.... That is why "Heartbroken" was a good break. ^-^ Though of course little black dress wasn't half bad either.

Awww, thank you! :D Gotta love the crazy fangirl side of Minako.
