KKM Mazoku ancestorslash: Laurence Weller/Rufus Bielefeld, "Rufus Bielefeld looked like a girl."

Rufus Bielefeld
KKM Mazoku ancestorslash. ;)
Pairing: Laurence Weller/Rufus Bielefeld
Rating: PG

Posted as a result of this exchange between chalp and lenainverse, with many thanks! *grin* Do check out the Rare Pairing Discussion: it's turning up lots of fascinating pairings and fic!

Rufus Bielefeld looked like a girl.

This, of course, was a fact that no member of Shinou's company would ever allude to, or even think about - not as long as Rufus was anywhere within earshot, that is. When your bedroll was set afire on a nightly basis, when your cups of river water boiled over with alarming regularity, when even the coldest winter nights had a tendency to get a little too warm - well, then, Rufus Bielefeld did not look like a girl. Most certainly not. Especially not if you didn't like sleeping in a bed of flames, preferred drinks that wouldn't scald your throat on the way down, or simply wanted to stay alive. Shinou forbid the thought of Rufus Bielefeld looking like a girl ever crossing your mind.

It was harder to convince the villagers, though, who flocked to Rufus in hordes, offering praises of his beauty and proposals of marriage to very nice men for whom he would make a perfect wife. Or the children, who would ask, "Can you be my Mommy?", to Rufus's eternal chagrin. Or the village women, who would shyly present Rufus with dresses in the distinctly feminine hues of violet, peach and pink, saying how well they suited him (The dresses were gifts, thanks for the good the Shinou was doing, so Rufus was hardly in a position to refuse). Wolf-whistles and cat-calls followed him wherever he went, and they didn’t stop once their makers realised he wasn’t, in fact, a woman.

Rufus Bielefeld was not a girl, but it didn't stop the rest of the world from treating him like one.

But Rufus was fiercely proud of his ability to hold his own in a firefight. Swift and shockingly lethal, he could cut a swathe through the Shinou's enemies like no other. He might well have been the smallest and slightest of the Shinou's warriors (not that he'd ever admit it), but he more than made up for it with ferocity and sheer determination.

Laurence Weller found it amusing. Amusing. It made Rufus furious just to think about it, but he supposed he could expect no better from a mere human. He had no idea why the Shinou found it necessary to even employ humans in this crusade (when it was obvious Mazoku would do better), but Rufus Bielefeld was nothing if not loyal. So he held his tongue and gritted his teeth as Weller fought alongside them just like any Mazoku, as if he had a right to be there.

There was so much Rufus Bielefeld disliked about Laurence Weller. He hated the way the man shrugged off any insult, the way nothing seemed to get to him the way it got to Rufus. He hated the way Weller would sometimes just look at him and, and smile slowly, as if they shared some secret no one else knew. He hated the way he'd blush when Weller did that, like the girl he wasn't and never wanted to be. He hated the way Weller would always insist on going before him if they were out on patrol, just to make sure he didn't run into any ambushes, because Rufus Bielefeld could take care of himself, thank you very much. He hated the way the Shinou and the Daikenja would smile at them when they thought that neither Weller nor he was paying attention, and it didn't escape his notice when those two kept finding excuses to send him and Weller off on missions that required them to spend far too much time in each others' company. He knew perfectly well what they were trying to do, and this wasn't the time for it!

Rufus Bielefeld was not a girl. He was not going to fall in love with a wonderful man, get married, and have a horde of children. He was not. This was a time for war, and certain humans should know that and stay out of his sight!

He thought he'd made that abundantly clear. But one night he awoke to find himself wrapped securely in Laurence Weller's arms, while a snowstorm raged against the flimsy walls of their tent.

"Get off, Weller!" he'd snarled, and attempted to shake himself free, but that infernal man's embrace only tightened.

"It's cold, Rufus," the human had said, reasonably. "And you looked like you were going to break yourself shivering."

"Go away," said Rufus, although the venom in his voice had lost quite a bit of its sting as he realised how cold it was, even inside the tent, and how... warm his companion was, by comparison. Belatedly, he realised that he should've tried to get free, at least, because he meant what he'd said -

He froze in a way that had nothing to do with the cold when he realised Weller's face was inches from his own, and that there was a look in the man's eyes that Rufus had only ever seen before when men looked at the women they loved.

"Weller?" Rufus's voice was shakier than he wanted it to be. "I'm not a girl."

Weller smiled.

"I don't like girls."

And for once in his life, Rufus Bielefeld wasn't furious.

Just when I was bemoaning the lack of Hotcestors fic! And this is sososo lovely, yes! The whole first paragraph had me in stitches!

28th-Jul-2007 12:42 pm (UTC)

*griiin!* I'm so glad I could help with the lack of Hotcestors fic! ;) XDDDD Thank you so much for the kind words! *beams!* I'm so happy you enjoyed this and the first paragraph! *griiin*

I think this story arises out of my thing for Conrad/Wolfram. ;) Goes alll the way back to the Mazoku ancestors. ;) Call it a genetic disposition. ;)

You always pleasantly remind how urgently I need to finish this series. D: Damn my slowness.
28th-Jul-2007 09:23 am (UTC)
xD Don't feel bad, Orphen! I used to be the biggest fan... but I don't think I ever watched the last episodes! *ducks bricks*

It took the subbers WAY TOO LONG! I was happy with screencap posts. ;)

... I should go watch the latest Supernatural episodes, too. FAIL.
28th-Jul-2007 09:21 am (UTC)
Whoops! xD I saw that post and PgDn'ed like usual. *hides!*

... besides the fact that I read "horcruxes" instead of "hotcestors" in the comment above mine, I really enjoyed this! I thought I would never see a KKM related post on your LJ anymore (it's just so blue now!) - and defintely not rare fanfiction! SO HAPPY! xD

I guess you wrote this quite a while ago, though? ^^; IS THERE MORE WHERE THIS CAME FROM? :D :D

You know, the Adidas jacket reminded me of KKM for a split second before I thought of Blades of Glory instead! *laughs* It's got that whole crown/king thing going on! AND IT IS THE SAME COLOUR AS YOUR LJ! I didn't realise that! xD
28th-Jul-2007 12:53 pm (UTC)
XDDDDDDDDD Dude, it's perfectly okay. ;) And I am amused at how Harry Potter ate your brain. Speaking of Harry Potter, if/when you watch the Simpsons with your mom - I hope you enjoy the really blatant Harry Potter reference. It made me laugh so hard. XDDDD

XDDDDDD There's another KKM post coming up, even! XDDD Just HAPPY JOY. It's amazing and wonderful how I have so damn much love for this series still: all I have to do is look at old screencaps and I am gone. ;) I LOVE YOU FOREVER WOLFRAM, OUR LOVE WILL NEVER DIE.

Thank you so much, sweetheart! *smiles* I'm very touched, and thank you for taking the time to read this! *smiles* Especially when it's a rare pairing. XD

XDDDDDDD I wrote this in November 2005, so yes! ;) It has been a while! ;) I didn't actually intend to post it, but the rare pairing discussion turned up someone who liked this pairing and wanted fic, and how could I say no, when I love this pairing myself? XDDD

Unfortunately, there isn't more where this came from: it's a very short one-shot: I think it's around 800 words. Quite standalone.

XDDDD The Adidas jacket? XDDDDD Maybe it looks like manga!Wolfram's outfit! Which reminds me, that yellow/blue Jimmy jacket ALSO MATCHES WOLFRAM'S ANIME UNIFORM! Which goes to show I go for small, blond, GIRLY, UKE characters who can pull of brilliant blue and yellow together. ;)

It's been a while since I read a KKM fic (or just a fanfic, for that matter...) but... *squeals*! So cute! Love the end! ^_____^
28th-Jul-2007 12:48 pm (UTC)
♥ *BEAMS AT YOU!* Thank you so much! *griiiin* I'm incredibly honoured that you read this, and even happier that you liked it and the ending! *beams* ♥ I actually hadn't read a KKM fanfic in ages until the rare pairings discussion, either! *griiin* Thank you so much, once again! ;)
28th-Jul-2007 01:41 pm (UTC)
OMG!! You actually wrote one!! *squeals* I love it!! Thank you so much for writing it!!

I actually feel it's IC for Rufus ^^ And I absolutely love the ending!!

Once again, thank you so much!!! <333333
28th-Jul-2007 01:51 pm (UTC)
Is it okay if I add you as friend?
28th-Jul-2007 02:18 pm (UTC)
So much love!! I'm beyond delighted that my silly post yielded good!fic~!

I love the characterization here, the similarities to ConWolf: Rufus's elitism and denial and indignation - so wonderful! And Weller's unflappable good nature, his smiles, the way he made Rufus blush! And the last two lines! I definitely think I woke my husband up with the gigglesqueeing. ^____^

Thank you so much for writing this, it is brilliant! We so need more pairing variety in the fandom. ^_^
28th-Jul-2007 02:35 pm (UTC)
*sends you so much love!* *beams* Thank you so much for making that post! ;) It turned up so much KKM fanfiction I loved and which I hadn't read before, and without it, this story would never have been posted! ;) It's not silly at all! *griiin* It was so much fun following the discussions and realising that none of us are quite alone in our rare pairing love as we think! ;)

Thank you so much for the lovely comment - this really made me smile! I'm so happy that you picked up on the ConWolf similarities - I am massively in love with that pairing, and I must admit I modeled the Laurence/Rufus relationship on the Conrad/Wolfram lines. XDDDDDD Thank you so much, once again, for the opportunity to post this and for the wonderful comment! ♥

(XD! I hope your husband gets back to sleep soon! ;) If not, tell him his awakening was for a worthy cause! XDD)

You're most welcome! *grin* And I'm so honoured that you read this and liked it! *griiin* And oh yes, we need more pairing variety! ;) Though I'm also still very happy with what we have now, too! ;)

Do you mean the Ion-Arietta Extra manga? This particular manga came as an extra to Degenki Maou, in which the Abyss manga is serialised. The issue with which it was released came out earlier this year, round about February. I'm not sure where you would be able to obtain it, as I purchase my copies directly from the bookstore and am unfamiliar with ordering Degenki Maou online, although some people have apparently managed to do so.

XXXXXXXXDDDDDDDD OMG! I just clicked on it because it was a rare pairing I've never seen, but I'm glad I did. It was really hilarious^^ Rufas really sounded so much like Wolfram in a way. Doesn't this remind you of Con/Wolf in a way? Anyone?

More please : 3 That is only if you're going to write more. It doesn't have to be this pairing...hehe.
28th-Jul-2007 03:50 pm (UTC)
XDDD!!! On the Conrad/Wolfram similarities, lenainverse and I would be totally with you on that, as we were discussing. XDD Feel free to jump in anywhere if you're so minded to! ;) I did model the Laurence/Rufus relationship on Conrad/Wolfram: just with more maturity, and less brattiness and sulking from the Bielefeld side. *wink*

Thank you so much for reading this and commenting, and I'm so glad you liked this story! *smiles* I have actually written more KKM fic before, although I am unlikely to write more in the near future. The ones I thought were passable were:

The Rules of Engagement (Yuuri/Wolfram)
In These Arms - Conrad-Wolfram
Taking Over Me - Maou/Wolfram

And the stories I am okay about are:
All That Can't Be Undone - Murata/Conrad
Dakishimetai -Conrad/Wolfram
Sword and Shield (Part 1) and Colder than Fire (Part 2) - Yuuri/Wolfram

I think that's all my KKM fic so far. *grin*

I shall love you forever. Rufus needs more love period in my opinion. This fic was cute, funny, and still hawt because the Hotcestors get no less. *bows to you*
28th-Jul-2007 04:29 pm (UTC)
Oh, my God, I love your icon so much, I want to drag it off to cave take it home! :D I loved that episode the icon is from so much. It made my inner Yuuri/Wolfram fangirl very, very, very happy.

Thank you so much for reading this, and for your lovely comment! *beams* *radiates love at you!* ♥ Rufus totally needs more love, as do the rest of the Hotcestors. ;) I didn't even realise we had a name for them until today! XDDDD

You win in cuteness
29th-Jul-2007 06:06 am (UTC)
♥! Thank you so much! *beams* I'm so glad you enjoyed this!

XD! I forget that we're in both Abyss and KKM! ;) Great to see you here, too! ;)
29th-Jul-2007 09:01 am (UTC)
Oh, this one is a treasure! I love it because it has the whole ConWolf dynamic...just really great.=)
29th-Jul-2007 05:56 pm (UTC)
*beams* Thank you so much! Thank you for reading this and commenting! ;) And you totally picked up on the ConWolf dynamic, which makes me grin! ;)
