My friend who's been liveblogging extremely bad Darker than Black fanfic at me ever since I posted about Sugar Tits Guy has developed a new and highly specific pet peeve out of it: people writing Darker than Black smut fic in which Hei brings [shipping partner of choice] back to his apartment. There are two reasons for this: Hei is an internationally-wanted assassin working for a shadowy criminal syndicate that would kill him in a heartbeat if he stepped out of line. The less anyone is paying attention to the place he sleeps, the safer for him, and them. Hei's apartment looks like this: Nothing says "romance" like a thin-walled completely barren room next to a bunch of college students who play electric guitar all night and a landlady who would definitely cheer your walk of shame, I guess. Said friend keeps trying to float fic plot ideas involving love hotels at me just in case referencing them might cause anyone out there still writing fic for a definitely-only-one-season seinen anime from 2007 to realize that love hotels exist.
