Teaser: "I was I love with a man who was at least half-way in love with his war. And, being as I loved this man and wanted to protect him, I took center stage in his war and I played for keeps."
Inspiration: I was re-watching the entire series with my elder brother and fell in love with the characters all over again. I wanted to create a world in which some of those characters need not die.
Rating: M! Because you can't spell "Lamperouge" without it! lol

POV: It's Suzaku's tale, this time.
Summary: Suzaku is a street kid doing anything to make his life a little easier. One day, the daughter of a powerful businessman finds him and takes him in. He lived and worked for her for three months before he found out she was the sister of his childhood friend, but his patron dies a month later and Suzaku is kidnapped by a mysterious cloaked man. What will his abductor do with him, who is the Earl of Pudding, and what of the mysterious gray-clocked Toudou from Suzaku's past?
Additional ANs: The summary hides bits of the story, but that's the point: I've gotta surprise you sometimes! This story promises to be lengthy, so keep watching for more from them! Also, just warning you all, but I'm freaking crazy, so most anything could happen…
Inspirational Music: ~"Anthem Part 2" by blink 182 It's sort of Suzaku's attitude --'I'm young, so I'm screwed'... ~"Dammit" by blink 182 I hate to say this... but this is the perspective of Suzaku for the first few chapters...
