Summary: They always played this game, helpless against the heavy torrents of despair that threatened to overtake their lives at every juncture. Kakasaku, Spoilers up to Manga 452
Notes: We are into part 2 of this story; it's already long and getting longer, but now is an EXCELLENT time to join and come along for the ride (especially if you like smut). It is rated M for a reason; the themes are ADULT. The story is a bildungsroman, or a coming of age story, with themes of sexuality, brutality, and occasional gore. It is not a fluffy romance, though the pairing is an eventual promise.
