Fic: The Camera Eye: The Boy With the Butterfly Tattoo [Hitomi x Jun, NC-17]

Title: The Camera Eye: The Boy With The Butterfly Tattoo
Chapter: Installment 75 overall in The Camera Eye series, and the 27th story in Season 3. Links to previous installments can be found here.
Author: Boots
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Porn industry AU, drama, smut, romance
Warnings: Male/male sex, polyamory, rimming, tattoo worship, mirrors
Pairing: Hitomi (ex-Moran) x Jun (Gotcharocka) (main), Jui x Jun x Toya (Gotcharocka), mentions of Jui x Mahiro (Kiryu) and Toya x Subaru (Royz), past Kamijo (Versailles) x Hitomi
Disclaimer: Royz and Kiryu belong to BP Records, Gotcharocka belongs to God Child Records, the now-disbanded Moran belonged to Speed-Disk, I own the story only.
Summary: Years ago, Jun had a crush on another performer he desperately wanted to work with – until the man suddenly vanished from the porn industry. Now, a journey into his past is about to make his dreams come true in a way he didn't expect.
Notes: The pink film industry, mentioned here, was a huge part of Japan's pop culture of the '70s and '80s – it was, as noted here, a mixture of softcore porn and violent action peculiar to Japan. (Pink videos are still being produced, but they're more of a cult thing now.) Jun's aunt was named after two actual performers in the industry – Ike Reiko and Tama Rumi, the latter of whom eventually became a power behind the camera as well. (The aunt character is totally fictitious – as far as I know, the real Jun has no relatives in any aspect of entertainment, let alone pink film). Hitomi's past relationship with Kamijo here is largely based on a damn hot photoshoot the two did together when both were with previous bands – Hitomi was known as Sanaka when he was with Fatima (which also, believe it or not, included Nao from Alice Nine.) And, yes, the beach resort talked about here is a real resort!

For someone in the gay porn industry, being on a general pop culture podcast was exceptional. )

Fic: His Prince's Knight [Hayato x Sena, NC-17]

Title: His Prince's Knight
Chapter: Standalone for now, probably will have sequels
Author: Boots
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Fairy tale AU, romance, drama
Warning: Male-male sex, spanking, mentions of flogging and masturbation
Pairing: Hayato (Codomo Dragon) x Sena (Jiluka)
Disclaimer: Codomo Dragon belongs to BP Records, Jiluka belongs to DPR Japan, I own the story only.
Summary: Once there was a knight who was completely apathetic about his job – until the day he saw a beautiful prince and became determined to be his personal protector. The prince, however, was the target of some rather nasty gossip, and the knight was about to find out the truth behind the rumors in an unexpected way.
Comments: Although this is a fairy tale AU, it is set in a different universe than my A Sort of Fairy Tale and its associated sidestories. The world here has a similar timeline, though – technology from the first half of the 20th century in a swords-and-castles setting. Oh, and if you're not familiar with Jiluka, this is Sena.

The royal family had a liberal approach to choosing its next heir. )

Title: Son and Heir – A Sidestory to A Sort of Fairy Tale
Chapter: Standalone sidestory to the A Sort of Fairy Tale series. Most of it takes place before the main series; the epilogue takes place after
Author: Boots
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Fairy tale AU, romance, drama
Warning: Male-male sex, frottage
Pairing: Shou x Hiroto (main), Tora x Saga (all Alice Nine/A9)
Disclaimer: Alice Nine/A9 formerly belonged to PS Company and are now free agents. This story contains elements from the anime/otome game Meine Liebe, property of Konami and Bee Train. I own the story only.
Summary: Even though the nation of Alicenine is a constitutional grand duchy – meaning the Grand Duke is a figurehead, not the true governing power of the state – being the heir to that title carries its own burdens. Shou, the current heir, knows this all too well. Fortunately, he has friends to help him deal with those burdens – especially one concerning his love life.
Comments: For the First Loves challenge at the VK Yaoi community, and for the free square of my Season of Kink card, for which I'm using the First Time kink. Can be read as a standalone, though you will appreciate it more if you have read the A Sort of Fairy Tale series. (Additional notes are at the end of the story).

The country was a curious mixture of the European and the Japanese. )

Disclaimer: Royz and Kiryu belong to BP Records, Gotcharocka belongs to God Child Records, I own the story only.
Summary: Jun feels guilty about Toya not being able to come with him and Jui to the Gilded Gala, a huge social event. But Toya has his own plans on how to spend the evening, and they involve Subaru and a certain recent purchase.
Notes: Takes place just before and during The Camera Eye: One in a Dozen; you pretty much have to have read that fic to fully understand this one. For the Sex Toys square of my Season of Kink card. Pink film, mentioned by Toya here, is a type of violent softcore porn that is particular to Japan.

It was a reminder of what it was like to be a three-way relationship in a couples-only world. )

Disclaimer: Royz and Kiryu belong to BP Records, Gotcharocka belongs to God Child Records, GazettE belongs to PS Company, I own the story only.
Summary: As the fallout from the JAVA Awards continues, Mahiro suddenly finds himself with an unprecedented honor from a “gentleman's magazine.” But why was he chosen when gay porn was far from the publication's usual business?
Notes: Mahiro and Junji are wearng the Etsu to Utsu costumes to the Gilded Gala. Jui and Jun are wearing the Royale outfits (same as the JAVA Awards). As far as I know, no “gentlemen's magazines” have given out honors to porn stars, although one of the major news sites (I believe CNN) did once carry a Dirty Dozen list of top stars in the adult video industry.

This year, the fallout from the JAVAs was a bit different. )

Summary: The biggest night in the industry, the JAVA Awards, has arrived. Toya finds himself nominated for the first time, Subaru has jitters over being a presenter, Hayato is out for the ultimate fanboy experience and Koichi is about to unveil a red carpet outfit like no other.
Notes: The outfits the main characters in this story are wearing are the following looks: Kiryu characters, Watashi wa Kairai, Sarugutsuwa no Ningyo; Royz characters, Raven; Codomo Dragon characters, Wolfman; Fest Vainqueur characters, Higanbana ~ Oirandouchuu, Gotcharocka characters, Kyousou Royale. Koichi's outfit is from Rock and Read 59 and MiA's from Cure 160 (except his headpiece is more of a metal circlet with a jewel in the middle of it, not the crown he wore on that cover). Ruiza's is from his solo mini-album, One. This fic was mostly written before I found out about Kazi's departure from Fest Vainqueur; the real-life event is not going to affect his fictional counterpart's standing in this ficverse.

If you were in the industry, the JAVAs were your Christmas. )

Summary: Hiro is finally getting to write the screenplay he’s wanted to do for years, and he has people in mind for every role but one. Someone he knows well really wants that role, and is ready to convince him that he’s worthy of it.
Notes: Closely related to the last Camera Eye story, Our Kind of Party. And, yes, there is such a thing as a Waters of Love Shower – it’s at the El Dorado Casitas Royale resort in Mexico’s Riviera Maya (they call it Aguas de Amor).

He couldn't get distracted, this screenplay meant too much to him. )

Summary: The Diamond Mine, the company founded by Jun and Jui which Toya has always been a part of, has always been neglected by the JAVA Awards. So why do they suddenly have multiple nominations?
Notes: Just something short to get me back into the groove of writing after being out of commission for nearly two months with a ruptured appendix.

2016 Writing in Review

I am extremely late with this, I know - and this is usually my formal Year in Review Meme, but I decided this year not to do the formal meme and just kind of do a general roundup and reminiscence of my last year of writing. I made that decision because it hasn't exactly been a typical writing year. It might have started out that way, with the usual flood of Camera Eye stories (and the usual flood of new muses into the Camera Eye universe), but at the end of the year . . . something very unusual happened.More under here! )

Title: A Sort-Of Fairy Tale, Chapter 10 – Happily Ever After and Epilogue
Chapter: Final chapter of 10
Author: Boots
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Fairy tale AU, romance, drama
Warning: Male-male sex, shower sex, rimming
Pairing: Toya (Gotcharocka) x Subaru (main), Yo-ka (DIAURA) x Yuuki (Lycaon/Initial'L), mentions of MiA x Koichi (Mejibray). (At last, the final pairings can be revealed at the top of the fic!)

Overall Story Summary: Once upon a time, there was a prince named Yo-ka whose father forced him to go through a Culling – a process by which a group of young men are gathered from each district of his kingdom and he eliminates them one by one until he finds his true love. There was another prince named Toya, who came along to offer his brother moral support, but planned to stay away from the fray. And there was a candidate named Subaru, who arrived from one of the country’s poorest districts with little more than a head full of dreams. All three were about to get more than they bargained for . . .
Chapter Summary: It's all over but the Happily Ever After. Toya and Subaru return to the Royal Retreat at Ekkisu, where they are finally able to express the passion for each other that they have held back for so long.
Comments: Thank you to everyone who has stuck with this story until the end! This is the longest piece I have ever written (since Camera Eye is more than a series of interconnected short stories rather than a true novel) and it's been quite an experience taking Subaru on his Cinderella journey. And a HUGE thank you to hamhamheaven who crafted a beautiful cover for this work!

Pairing: Final pairings of the series confidential for now. Currently, it involves Yo-ka (DIAURA) with a harem that includes Subaru (Royz), MiA (Mejibray), Yuuki (Lycaon/Initial’L), Ruiza (D), Hiyori (Kiryu) and Hiro (Fest Vainqueur). Also Toya (Gotcharocka) x Subaru.
Disclaimer: DIAURA belongs to Ains, Royz and Kiryu belong to B.P. Records, Mejibray belongs to White Side Group, D and Gotcharocka belong to God Child Records, Fest Vainqueur belongs to PLUG RECORDS west, and I’m not yet sure who Initial’L’s new company is. I own the story only.
Overall Story Summary: Once upon a time, there was a prince named Yo-ka whose father forced him to go through a Culling – a process by which a group of young men are gathered from each district of his kingdom and he eliminates them one by one until he finds his true love. There was another prince named Toya, who came along to offer his brother moral support, but planned to stay away from the fray. And there was a candidate named Subaru, who arrived from one of the country’s poorest districts with little more than a head full of dreams. All three were about to get more than they bargained for . . .
Chapter Summary: The Culling is down to the final four as they arrive in the district of Ekkisu. Subaru is facing the harsh reality of looking at the end of the best time of his life and is more tangled in his feelings about the two princes than ever. Plus, the boys learn a salacious tidbit about Cullings of the past.
Comments: This series as a whole was inspired by the TV series The Bachelor, and the matter of the Pavilion of the Heart comes from the part of the series that I find the most repugnant – the so-called Fantasy Suite, which takes place at the same juncture of the competition it once did in the Culling (when there’s three candidates left). Hometown Dates, mentioned by Yo-ka here, is also a stage of The Bachelor.

The royal retreat looked more like a house than a palace. )

Comments: The character of Yazawa isn't based on anyone in particular, even though there's been a few J-rockers with his first name, Naoki.

He didn't want to think about the end of the week. )
