The Same Deep Water As You: Thank You Fic(lets)

Hi, all!

As you may or may not have noticed, last week we finished posting The Same Deep Water As You. The final word count, if you're curious, was 445,367 words, in 57 chapters plus epilogue.

And speaking of words. :) There are a few of you who really went above and beyond with the feedback, hanging in there all through the story and leaving us comments on almost every chapter, and we'd like to say a very big extra thank you to you guys. (And you know who you are.) A big part of the joy of posting is hearing what people think, and it meant a lot to us that we could look forward to what you had to say week after week. So to those regulars *cough* we'd like to offer thank-you ficlets-to-fic, about anything you'd love to see in the Same Deep Water universe. This can be a side story to something that happened in the main story, an event in the past, or something that'll happen in their future.



Two little things though:

1) If you pick an event, make sure it's something that either has happened or will happen, not an AU to the AU. I.e. 'Kame's first visit to the club' works, because that happened; something like 'Kame and Jin moving in together' also works, because that will happen.** 'Koki/Jin in the SDW universe' doesn't work, because it didn't and will never happen.

2) You (automatically) promise not to sulk if your ficlet happens to be shorter and someone else's happens to be longer! We're very open to all kinds of requests, but depth and length will vary with available time (!) and other circumstances, and we don't want to stress about anyone feeling that we love them less. (Sometimes we stress easily.)

**Recommendation: don't request that one. Of course you may, but it's going to be largely a non-event and not terribly entertaining to read. Used merely because it's a good example.

There's no hard time limit on this offer, though in about a week or so we'd probably like to take stock and see how much we've got. You can think about it, or if you want also check in the discussion post. We really appreciated you taking the time and hanging in there through all eleventy chapters, and if there was something more you wanted to see in this universe, please don't hesitate to let us write you a little thank-you, because you were awesome.

Hee. I knew this fic couldn't die completely just like that.

Um, I think the first four chapters went without my over-zealous feedback. Eligible...? ;)

Something I have wanted to see since the beginning: Jin telling Kame exactly why he freaked out so badly during their first meeting. It might seem like a horrible thing to ask for, but honestly I think Kame needs to know, and that after they've hashed it all out (Jin may need to call Kame stupid a few times,) I think it would ultimately bring them closer. I didn't want to ask for a flashback because then Jin wouldn't be able to gloss over the worst of the horribleness and there would be no Kame cuddles.

I'm also extremely curious. *covers face*

It's so sweet of you both to offer this. Especially since I'm sure you have enough other material to write about well into the next decade.

You're totally eligible and we can, uh, do this. This is a scary one... but we'll ganbarimasu, oh yes, precious.
(sorry this is just from me but we're wandering through a park in Tokyo and the haikuesque login is beyond my stupid phone.)

Beyond jealous you're in Tokyo in the spring with beautiful sakura...

Thank you!

*raises hand* Am I qualified? :)

If yes, can Jin please reunite with his brothers? I think he really misses them and he won't be completely happy..
Even if it's only a few sentences long, I don't mind. :)

Omg! I'm talking like they're actually real.. Well, Jin and Kame are real but..you know what I mean. :)

You are qualified. :)

(Sorry about the late reply, we're still partying in Japan and largely being irresponsible and out of touch with the world. Seeing Kame live does that to you. OMG OMG...)

And yes, we can get him to meet his brothers again.He's planning to anyway. No promises for 100% peace and harmony though. :p

Hee, we know what you mean. It makes us very proud.

Wow!! It must be really mind blowing to see Kame live. I'm envious of you two!!!! XD
And thanks so much in advance for agreeing to my idea.

Party hard!!!! You've been through a lot writing SDW so you deserve it.

Umm...I dunno if I qualify to be in your list of eligible people, but one I'd really like to see is Jin meeting his family again, with Kame's (and maybe Kame's parents?) support. The families meeting *shuddersss*...I kind of want to see what would happen :P.

Thank you for creating a great universe - it was my escape every week. I am going to miss it!

This actually matches nicely with Krystal's request, so you should definitely get Jin getting in touch with his parents. May not be quite what you think, though. :D

And you're welcome! ♥

Why don't you tell us what both are and we can pick the one we like best? :p

And maybe somebody else who is eligible will see them and pick the other one for their own request.

I think reading Jin top in the SDW universe would be nice, too. :3

kdshflaskjfdhalksjdfhlakjsfhlaksjfhlaskjhf I could read the last chapter at home yesterday cozily in my bed and eating choco xD (almost falling asleep gomen @.@ Japan trip still falling on me).

I don't know if I deserve it *puppy eyes* such a feed back but~~~~ I think I need some time to think about what I want xDDDD and before that I want to comment the last two chapters too at least

*___________________* A lot of things in my mind xDDDD and some of them won't be allowed ORZ XDDD so.. could I have a break to think about it? I want to know silly things like some scene of Jealous/Mad!Jin, if Kame can bake brownies, if Jin has a favourite scene/chapter/movie from Kazuya, if Kame was exhausted for once because Jin was too energetic in bed xDDDD now I'd ask a lot of questions about smut scenes xD like if Jin was allowed to top (literally), at least once, as an exception , because Jin was in charge from time to time there XD

Ok, no more rants, let me think carefully then if you don't want to know about me just say it *blushed*


P.D.: I'm glad I met you \\0//, I can add our creepy walk in Yoyogi Park of one of my favourite memories in Tokyo. Yeah I'm this weird lol. But you know, you have a fan here xDDD, please, use that in some of your new fics as inspiration m(_._=)m

P.D.2: It's Thursday and I don't have my dose of my favourite drug ;_______________; *feels sad* *misses AKame*

Um, so we've already chatted about this and really, we are sorry but you don't really qualify. It doesn't mean we don't like you!!! Just that this was to say thanks to those people who sent us comments all the time! :)

We hope you have fun with the ficlets that come out if this though.

And we are soooo glad we met you, we had so much fun with you and G.!! Yay for the creepy park! You should know that we don't take just anybody into creepy parks in the rain. Let's do it again next year (we can find a new park for you "now with improved creepiness") and in return you can rap for us at karaoke again!

It was a bit weird to realise it was Thursday and we had nothing to post. >_<

*_______________________* Reading what people are asking you, actually I think my request will be fullfill already xDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

YAY for the creepiness \\0// I (but not more than this year ok? xDDD -Yucchi's chicken style-) Rapping again ORZZZZZZZZZ!!! So embarrasing *blushes* Please, don't make me remember that xDDDDDDDDDDD But we have to go to some of those karaokes with "drink-whaterver-you-want"+"karaoke" *_______* Beer+Umeshu+Gin-tonic (we usually name it "JIN tonic" because it seems it's his favourite drink). It's not any of us are drunkards but spirit drinks can make me beatbox better xD lol

Give our Thursdays back~~~~~ ;___; There aren't Thursdays without your fics ♥

LOL what is this, a hamster fetish? ;p We didn't realize Taka-chan had made such an impression.

Okay, well, we're afraid Jin is not really planning to acquire a hamster, so the beast in question would have to be Yuuya's. And forgive us for thinking that Jin and Kame would not really let the little devil interrupt their sexual adventures. ;)

But Kame and Yuuya... well, there's a rapprochement needed there anyway, and we were thinking of a situation where we'd throw Kame, Jin and Yuuya together (NOT IN BED!), and... okay, that wasn't the kind of situation where a hamster would necessarily feature but we could easily make it so. :)

Does that sound okay? Maximum Awkwardness With Specially Requested Hamster?

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I MISSED THIS POST!!!!!?????? ;_______________________________________; T_________________________T

can I request? is it still ok?

I love a lot the fluffy comfort and the little details that show how they care about each other.

I really have tons of different ideas and I don't know what kind you will prefer to write, so I will tell you about one and you can tell me after if it's absolutely NOOOO.

So I like to read about future, maybe something like Jin having first concert, his life is stable and he is calm and happy/ he wants to make something for Kame, like romantic evening. prepare something to eat, with wine, that Kame loves and maybe even candles. But Jin is little bit nerveous, he wants everytning to be perfect. so maybe he failed in some moments and maybe Kame will smile and Jin feels upset little bit. Just the fluffy evening, with love and with understandhing how happy they both are having each other.

He even can cover Kame eyes to show the present, that he prefers.

I'm very very sorry for being so late Orz

"Jin," Kame said. It was as much Jin's name as it was a call for help. Not since Takuya had taken his hand in the club and given him his very first blowjob for money had he blushed so.

"What's up?" Jin asked.

Kame stared at the girls, their frolicking unicorns and the intriguing cat ears. "Somebody just called me a virgin on the internet."

"That's awful," Jin says, "you shouldn't have to see that. Here, put on this blindfold I prepared earlier. How do you feel about some candles?"
