16 Possessions Hirato/Akari. Well, actually it's Akari/Hirato. Technically this could be PWP, but I flatter myself and consider it a character study of sorts. A between-the-sheets character study, or more accurately, a bent-over-the-desk character study. Anyway, it really is a character study, I swear.

13 Major Arcana: The Lovers There was a discernible point in time, Akari knew, when the situation had slipped from his firm control.
