So it looks like this community may be dead, but still thought i'd try...
So i've been out this fandom YEARS, a very long time, but i seek a fic i vaguely remember...
I'm pretty sure it was Daiken/Kensuke - they were adults, and Ken was married to a man or had a long-term boyfriend? However he was abusive i believe, possibly emotionally, mentally and i think physically? Ken hid it all, so no one knew. I think, if i remember correctly, this boyfriend/husband stopped allowing Ken to see Daisuke because he didn't trust him. Eventually Daisuke worked out Ken was in an abusive relationship and attempted to save him, etc. I'm sure all the others were in it too - i remember Takeru had a big part?
I remember this was a well written fic, it stood out from most others. I *believe* it was originally on fanfiction. net, but could be wrong.
I've been searching EVERYWHERE and can't find this at all, i'm starting to think i imagined it - if anyone can help, i'd be eternally grateful.
Thank you to all/any help!
So I realize your message is pretty old, but since you haven't gotten any response I figured eh, why not reply!
The only fic I know of like that is a very old one I wrote called Katsuo, which I had posted on ff.net. Dunno if that's it, it's REALLY old, but the way you describe it sounds exactly the same as what I wrote. Does that name sound right? Katsuo was the abusive boyfriend who hated Daisuke. He pretended to be very sane and caring around others but with Ken he was obviously very different. Takeru was important in the story because he was more insightful than Daisuke and was figuring it out on his own. It would also make sense why you can't find it, because I removed it years ago...
If not, then I'm not sure. I know of some where Ken, as the Kaiser, abuses Daisuke pretty badly (don't like those fics at all...) but not where post-show Ken has a boyfriend.
In other news, yeah... LiveJournal has been pretty dead for this fandom. It's a huge bummer, I've had to move over to Tumblr instead. I hate Tumblr -_-

YES, yes! That is the fic!
Wow, is it really that old? I guess I was pretending it wasn't that long ago, but I forget how old I am these days. ;___;
I think LJ has pretty much died altogether these days, hasn't it? I remember I used to be on this site every day, about ten years ago (god that's depressing to admit). Now, I come here as a last resort if I can find nothing on Tumblr or A03.
Tumblr can be brilliant, if you make sure to follow the right people. Avoid the moany teenagers and the people wanting to start arguments, trolls, etc. I really like Tumblr.
Thanks for replying!
Well I wrote that story back when I was around 14 years old, and now I'm 27 (ugh... time needs to slow down). I still really like the basic idea for that fic, I've just improved as a writer to the point where I didn't feel proud of that one anymore (among others that I'd written). I removed it with the intention of re-writing it, and then of course... I didn't actually re-write it... *sigh* I still want to someday. Before that or anything else though, I need to finish my current Daiken story Drive Me Crazy. It's long overdue for an update.
Very true, it seems like yesterday LJ was all the rage! Back in the day it's where every fandom met, and now it's more like a ghost town. It's sad because I spent a lot of my childhood on LJ. But I suppose nothing lasts forever.
My issue with Tumblr is its interface. I DESPISE the endless scrolling crap, I want pages dang it! GRRRR! But alas, it seems to be where everyone moved to, so I just have to use it anyway. I do enjoy a lot of what I find there, and I block the trolls lol. But... it's just not as good as LJ used to be.
Anyway I'm glad you were able to at least find out which story it was. Sorry I can't link it to you. Maybe someday though.
26 here, so I feel your pain!
Give me a wee link to your current fic then, and I'll give it a shot. =] Always like finding new fic I've not read.
Yeah, same here - I remember watching TV shows and posting on LJ about them real-time. Then going to the main LJ blog about it, and fangirling with all the others. Good times.
Do you use Chrome? If so, try downloading Xkit - you can customise Tumblr to a style you prefer. (Blacklist is saintly.)
I will warn that it's a Daisuke x Kaiser fic, so I would understand if that wasn't your thing. I've observed that many Daiken fans are quite opposed to it. For what it's worth though Ken isn't a rapist, nor does he perform horrible acts of torture or mutilation upon Daisuke lol. The purpose of the story was to show what might happen if Ken had ever captured Daisuke, and how it would affect his conscience to have done so. Daisuke's goal is to find out who Ken really is, and of course to leave as much chaos in his wake as possible.
I do use Chrome, but I haven't heard of Xkit. I'll have to give it a shot. Thanks!
