Joshua can complain about anything under the sun, but some complaints are more serious -- and more meaningful -- than others.
Contains Joshua, a warning in and of itself. Written to the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt: "of course Joshua has complaints about e-books".


.digitized.
Is it like giving up canvas to do street art? )
He has to do something to wile away the hours between one Day and the next, but he doesn't have a lot of options. What he does have is all the time in the world -- unlike everyone else in Shibuya.
Contains bored Joshua and all of the spoilers. Even this intro has spoilers. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt, "he doesn't sleep like the real Players".


.texts from the end of the world.
Have you ever thought of programming more entertaining games for flip phones? )
Rhyme manages to coerce Neku into responding to one of Joshua's annoying text messages. Joshua immediately makes him regret it.
Contains bickering and philosophical questions. Also Joshua being Joshua. I want to write more Neku and Rhyme... Written to the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt, "Neku+Joshua, TELEPHONE, n. An invention of the devil which abrogates some of the advantages of making a disagreeable person keep his distance."


.a study in reasonable assumptions.
Under her baggy pants and steel-toed boots Neku had been amused to discover that she was wearing pink socks with yellow punctuation marks on them. )
For three weeks he's been tormented by creatures who may or may not exist and who may or may not wish him harm. They keep him awake at night and harass him during the day. He's beginning to fray at the edges...
To the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt "angels and demons AU". It's slightly cheating because one party was already an angel, but I decided to take it to a different place and basically make them larger, more annoying versions of shoulder angels and demons. Also, picked a name for Neku's backstory friend.


.divine evolution.
It was almost unfair that they got along so well with each other when their fighting over him was driving him insane. )
Hanekoma's innocent act doesn't fool Joshua. He has contemplated his options and done his research and now he's ready. The only thing left to do is the hardest thing: communicate.
Contains Joshua+Hanekoma interaction, post-game complete with spoilers and headcanons and all that good stuff. Angst, woobie sociopaths, and people being unrepentant about bad behavior. In response to [personal profile] oneill's lovely prompt on [community profile] fic_promptly, "Joshua and Hanekoma, what we've got here is failure to communicate." He might not have been expecting quite this take on it.


.inquisition.
We've gone from merely hiding our true thoughts to not speaking at all. Do you see how this isn't progress, dear? )
Mr. H is a man full of secrets. So many secrets, in fact, that it's hard even to learn where he lives -- even for Joshua. This injustice is finally being remedied.
Contains Hanekoma/Joshua, excessive banter, and incredible spoilers for the post-game content. Written for my [community profile] fic_promptly prompt: "Hanekoma/Joshua: to fix the poison that's killing Shibuya".


.touch-contact.
But I'm not just a humble barista... )
Warnings: Spoilers up to the end credits. Indirect death, lots of theorying, and stubbornness. The gen beast strikes! Canonical to the Red Queen's Evolution series.
"Hmm...something Joshua centric? Maybe something to do with his death? [...] Or...you know. Something to do with Joshua's death *hit*."


.song of the lonely.
for [livejournal.com profile] qarbaqe for the [livejournal.com profile] thewewyfanfic exchange
Everybody pays in Sanae Hanekoma's restaurant -- no matter how often they came in, seeking a little emotional connection, a little understanding, more than a bite to eat. )
Warnings: Spoilers up to the end credits. Cities and their caretakers falling in love, memories of murder of the most foul sort, unexpected promotions, present tense.

Contains Neku/Joshua.

.lover's song ii.
He's been thinking a lot of uncharacteristic things lately. )
Warnings: Spoilers up to the end credits. Cities and their caretakers falling in love, murder of the most foul sort, present tense. Sort of a prequel to The Red Queen's Race but standalone. Also, much shorter.
Contains Joshua, one-sided Neku/Joshua.


.lover's song i.
He hasn't wanted anything for himself in so long. )
Warnings: Post-game, spoilers up to the damn end credits. Creativity on a divine scale, shocking forgiveness in the face of complete asshattery, a new CAT, and Alice in Wonderland references.
Contains Neku, Joshua, and very subjective implications of Neku/Joshua.


.the red queen's race.

A slow sort of country! Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that! )
