PoT Drama Drabble: Lift (Zhen Zhi/Hai Tang)
inui serious
Lots of good InuKai stuff was posted for PIKL Day so check it out and add more! I'm reposting my drabble here, for posterity. It's based on the PoT Chinese drama so the characterization is a bit different. Zhen Zhi is Inui, Hai Tang is Kaidoh.

Lift by Halrloprillalar / prillalar
Prince of Tennis Chinese Drama, Zhen Zhi/Hai Tang, 200 words, G.
Hai Tang is special.


When Zhen Zhi helps Hai Tang with his backhand, Hai Tang gets it wrong on purpose once or twice. "Like this," Zhen Zhi says and takes Hai Tang's hand to guide him through the stroke.

When they go running, sometimes Hai Tang gets a cramp. "Right here," he says, and lets Zhen Zhi massage his leg.

Sometimes, Hai Tang feels guilty. "You help me too much," he says. "There's no benefit."

Zhen Zhi looks up from his notebook. "But you're special."

"Well, my tennis," Hai Tang says.

"Yes, tennis--" Zhen Zhi gives his glasses a push. "--but you're special to me."

The world hiccups on its axis and Hai Tang's heart skips a beat. "Zhen Zhi..."

"I shouldn't have said that," Zhen Zhi says. "It's a burden for you."

"No." Hai Tang steps closer. He puts his hands on Zhen Zhi's face, thumbs brushing Zhen Zhi's cheekbones. "I can lift anything."

Zhen Zhi drops his notebook. Hai Tang laughs and leans in and they kiss, soft and damp, and the sun comes out and flowers bloom and a fanfare of trumpets plays.

"Oh, that's just my phone," Zhen Zhi says and sends the call to voicemail.

"I can lift anything."

Gaaaaaaaaaah. Stop doing this to me in 200 words.

Aw. :) I'm glad I still can.

Have you watched any of the drama yet? If not, you should give it a go once the winter fest fic-writing season is over. It's just so good. SO good.

That's what I'm planning on doing. I have to watch all of that and marathon Kiva, but I have approximately four-hundred fics to write in the next four weeks.

I need to do the Kiva marathon thing too. Luckily, my fic load is much lighter so I may make some progress!


i need a kiva to my soul adapter. do you think apple makes those?

they probably do but the cord is only like an inch and a half long.

ahahaha, too adorable - Chinese!Kaidoh is a manipulative minx.

Hai Tang is a problem child, that's for certain. :) Glad you enjoyed!

Cute: check

Funny: check

Concise: check

Why can't I meet a man who behaves like your fics, bb.

I'm glad you liked it!

Slash spoils us for real men, it's true.

Especially real, straight men who don't feel like massaging Kaidoh's leg now and then. XD

ROTFL. oh god, the phone. I need to watch these.

Hey, what was that thing you had to get your computer on the TV? I was sort of looking into that action, but i've realized my old mini-dvi connector from the original ibook doesn't work on the macbook anyway (although in theory I could just hook up the old ibook and then not have to give up my computer while I do it, but I'm unsure the old ibook possesses the processing speed to play live-action stuff. I seem to recall having problems with that before I got the powerbook.)

Moreover, I think the powerbook might actually have its own DVI as well as a video output, but i'd have to look and my parents have it.

Look, here they are! http://community.livejournal.com/dramapuri/1557.html

You mean that thing I had to mysteriously control your computer? :D

Mine is the Apple Micro-DVI to Video Adapter. Also, I have a splitter with a minijack on one end for the headphone plug-in and stereo jacks on the other end. We already had an Apple remote kicking around but you don't need one if you don't mind controlling the playback by hand.

my computer did seem to like being controlled by you. I typed seme instead of seem like three times in a row just then.

Isn't that think like an inch long? or is that just a misleading picture? because that was my main qualm about that sort of thing, that my laptop will have to sit on the floor to manage this.

I think I have a headphone to audio thinger in the box I was just rooting through, I'll have to see.

It's short but then you also need a video cable that goes from the adapter to the TV. So you can just get cables long enough.

aha, that makes a little more sense.

I wonder if i ought to get just a DVI to video, because that way I could use either laptop, although i'll have to get a mini-dvi to dvi for the newer one. but they aren't terribly pricey on the other hand.

okay, after a bunch of digging, and squinting at the little holes, it turns out the old laptop had a RGB port in fact, and the adapter I have laying around is RGB to VGA. I think. okay, still wrong. It's all VGA, it's just like...mini VGA or something psychotic.

Goodness, what a mess. This is why lex luthor has guys. he just tells them "fix it" and they do!

Ajdfjflfljdk. *_________* ♥

I've yet to get to all those comments, so I'll comment here first!

Oh Zhen Zhi, I think I'll just fall in love with you all over again. ^_____^ I like how he just has to say "to me" and everything just... shifts in the right direction.

*loves and loves* Grah, I need to watch... rewatch some episodes again.

Zhen Zhi is so quiet and constant. I want to hug him forever.

I'm glad this made you happy!
