You're Joking, Right? - In One Place 
15th-Feb-2010 12:32 pm
It has come to my fragmented attention that You're Joking, Right? is not available all in one place. I hadn't noticed? Well, no. The years go by, and -- you know. Anyway, I feel additional admiration now for everyone who actually read the whole thing, because it's not like I've made it easy.

Anyway, I've combined the files and broken the manuscript into the chapters it should be divided into, as opposed to the chapters as originally posted. And the lovely and talented vom_marlowe has kindly agreed to do something with this wot will make it available to the public, since it would require about a bazillion LJ entries and I would never finish because I would kill myself first. Oh, the pain.

You’re Joking, Right?
This is a twisty bit of noir-ish espionage Weiss Kreuz AU porn. Aya's a mess. Yoji doesn’t know what’s going on but decides to take charge of the situation anyway -- however, the situation quickly takes charge of him.
Rating: X, NC17, Mature, and so on
Warnings: Oy; you name it. Violent sex, especially at the beginning and sort of right at the end. Also just violence. Head games and plot kinks. Sex, sex, sex. (But plotful!) Also language.
Word count: 78,000+, total
BTW: Weiss Kreuz is owned by Project Weiss.

Please do! I just read the whole thing at a go for the first time when I put this together. I'd forgotten most of it!

Ohhhh yes! This story was twisted Aya at his very best. THE quintessential tortured Aya/Yohji story, IMHO!!!!!

That was YOU? Ahahaha! Small world...

I *love* that fic, and you know, I'm not sure I've read the end...I can't even remember if I was reading it off ff.net or aff.net...

Thanks for the link, in that case! Your writing style is killer awesome....especially your sense of humor!

It started out on MediaMiner, and those chapters never found there way to LiveJournal

And thank you!

Fabulous! Believe it or not, I had saved all the chapters you posted from Media Miner to LJ.:P So I've just downloaded it again and will re-read!!! *is excited!*

I can't believe that I'd forgotten it started out on MediaMiner, and that it didn't occur to me to do something about that. Well, I can believe it. Because I am a flake.

I'm so glad you're excited about rereading it!

I meant to tell you I saw this given a great rec by audrarose on my flist, and that you'd probably get some visitors as a result. It's such a great fic, it's nice to see it get even more attention.

Apropos of not much (except I guess it's the main reason for my lack of follow through), I'm pregnant again. 3 1/2 months and going well. :-)

That's fabulous! Congratulations!! That's wonderful news, and I'm very happy for you. Sad that I'm not going to be hearing from you for about twenty years, but happy for you!

That rec is so nice! I told her I was thinking of printing and framing it. She is lovely.

It's good to hear from you, and I'll be thinking of you in the months to come!

Thank you! I'm past the worst of the first trimester fatigue so I may be a bit more around for a few months at least. It's been a draining time - IVF, pregnancy, miscarriage, IVF, pregnancy, second anniversary of my brother's death, complete estrangement from my mother (more details on my LJ)...

But I'm keeling more evenly now! Very happy to be working on number three child, still in love with the two I have and about to have a holiday. :-)

Oh, and it was a really lovely rec, so I wanted to make sure you saw it. It's well deserved. That story made me *tingle*.

What a great idea!
I really like the set up.
17th-Feb-2010 03:04 am (UTC)
Isn't it a great idea? I was impressed. That vom_marlowe is very clever!
17th-Feb-2010 07:53 am (UTC)
O, thank you, thank you! Finally I can read it from beginning to end without having to go searching for bits!

(i love this fic)

Hell with that paper, already a week overdue... I'm gonna go get me some Yohji and Aya right now!

Oh, gods, I'd forgotten how hot the violence between Farfarello and Aya is, right off the bat... and then the snark, oh the snark, and your fabulous characterizations of EVERYONE!

When I continued reading this morning I was ROFL so loud that it was a good thing others were awake already. Aya... "what could you expect from someone who wore stilettos and God-damned ankle socks?"

No, the paper isn't getting written; you got a problem with that? (plans to channel farf if anyone gives me any shit about it today)

My alarm just went off; guess I have to defer further delights or cut class. (Yes, I thought about it. I love this fic THAT MUCH.)

P.S. The transition didn't like your html markups, but otherwise it's lovely to have everything all together! I DON"T WANT TO STOP!

um, for that to make sense you have to know it's morning here in the Pacific Northwest. It's been sunny! and warm! how weird. If it didn't rain a lot I'd think I was in California or something.

I've just read 'You're Joking, right?' and wow, it was fantastic. I must admit I usually shy away from fics with violent sex but Aya is my favorite kitty so I read on - and the clever, witty dialogue got me hooked.
When I reached the ending, I felt there should me more, and I wanted MORE.

Sorry, if I'm less than bright but if you can still recall why you wrote what you wrote - how come, near the end of the fic (chapter 22), you kept implying that Yoji will leave Aya? Aya was thinking it when he was stuck in bed and gazing out the window and 'a tear rolled down his cheek'- and then after talking to Aya, Ken talks to Yoji in the flower shop and also implies that Yoji will eventually leave Aya.

I think that's the part that makes my heart aches cos after all that Aya has gone through - I hate it to end with the knowledge that Aya won't even have Yoji anymore, sob, sob, Tell me it's not true!!!

Really good writing - thank you for an exciting read and like I said, I wish there was more, More, MORE
