Codec from jou (freq. 198.42) [aka, extended author's notes on 'Ienai']

I had originally been going to include this in "Ienai," then decided that since it was, well, as long as the fic, to do it in the same style as my "Ultimanias" for my FF7 fic--make it a separate post, and my fellow nerds could read it if they wanted.

Codec from jou (freq. 198.42): I picked that number for a reason. XD )

[fic] Ienai

Title: Ienai
Author: joudama
Fandom: Metal Gear Solid
Rating: PG
Word count: 900-ish
Summary: For you, some things cannot be spoken; cannot be healed.
Song Prompt: Birdcage - Gackt
A/N: Written for fictunes.
The title, "Ienai," is Japanese, and I picked it for three reasons:

1. Otacon (Hal Emmerich) is a giant anime otaku; you know that man knows Japanese.
2. The line in "Birdcage" I genked the title from is 「悲しみは癒えない」 [kanashimi wa ienai]--"my loneliness can't be healed."
3. In Japanese, the words for "can't be healed," 「癒えない」, and "can't be spoken," 「言えない」, are homonyms--the kanji are different, but they're pronounced the same, "ienai."

This takes place after MGS2 and assumes you know Otacon's terrible, awful backstory. ;_; If not, here, take a moment to watch this clip and feel your heart getting pulled out and stomped on. "E.E" is Emma Emmerich, Otacon's step-sister. Until the clip, he hadn't seen her since she was six. And that dumb bird was hers.

[fic] Soft

Title: Soft
Fandom: Metal Gear Solid
Rating: PG
Word count: @1330
Summary: Hal Emmerich is soft, and what is soft is malleable.
A/N: ...I've spent the last few days watching MGS walkthroughs, and Otacon is officially my favorite woobie nerdboy. This takes place right after the Otacon ending for MGS1.

You don't really need to know who the characters are, but hey, just in case: Hal Emmerich/Otacon and Solid Snake (warning, that wiki page for Hal tells his terrible backstory right off the bat.) During the game, they looked like this.

...I'm still like "WTF, MGS fanfic, I'm writing what?" Self-depreciating LOL @ self.
