Anyone remember Street Fighter?  
My college boyfriend absolutely loved this game. Personally, I was a Mortal Combat gal, but I did enjoy playing Street Fighter occasionally. I thought Vega was hot. You would think that after all the shit I went through in that relationship, I would hate anything to do with it, but I guess not. To this day, I still can't listen to the Pearl Jam song "Better Man" without wanting to either punch a hole in the wall or find somewhere to go cry. I'm serious, nothing will send me diving for the radio faster than the opening riffs of that song. Yet, when I came across these videos I laughed my ass off. Funny how your brain associates pain to different things. Hmm...well anyway, enjoy Street Fighter: The Later Years

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

They don't seem to be doing so well in these later years, lol.

I ended up rereading P&C today!! Then I had to pop in my WHR DVD - and right off the bat it had that P&C vibe with Zaizen. I only watched about the first six episodes, but it was entertaining.

In P&C I really like the way Amon is longing for compassion and acceptance and maybe getting too attached to Haruto or Haruto/Michael. I also wonder if Robin will prove useful in their struggle or what your plans are for her. And will Amon continue to rely on the orbo - or will he try to come to terms with whatever power he possesses in order to break Zaizen's hold?

I don't want to make a request, since you have your own plans for this fic, but I certainly wouldn't mind an Amon&Robin scene/convo at some point where she's surprised because he shares something, opens up, or responds to her in a less-standoffish way. (Okay, that totally sounds like a request - sorry! I blame it on my DVD viewing!)

Seriously looking forward to the next chapter!

No, they don't and that's what made it so funny^^ I was dying when Sagat was playing with the kitten.

You'll be happy to know that I actually worked on the next chapter for a little bit today. And seriously, do you want me to give the entire plot away? Jeesh ;) But you are correct that Amon is desperately longing to make a connection to someone else. He sees what Michael and Sakaki have and he wants to feel that for himself. He's in an interesting relationship with the two boys. In Michael he sees himself- used, damaged, and unworthy. But Michael has Sakaki, someone who loves him despite everything and is willing to stand up and fight for him. And Amon wants that too. Our stoic little hottie has a long road ahead of him as he tries to sort out feelings and emotions he's never had before.

Robin will play a part in this story as well, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that a scene that you described *cough* requested *cough* will happen.

I'm so happy you worked on it again today! After rereading my mind wanders over the possibilities and I get all giddy and anxious to find out what happens next. I'm in hyper-curious mode as I await the next installment.

And Amon wants that too. Our stoic little hottie has a long road ahead of him as he tries to sort out feelings and emotions he's never had before.

*squeeing*

Robin will play a part in this story as well

*even more squeeing*

It was a total WHR day for me, and I loved it. Thanks!

I'm still undecided about how AU I want to go with this story. I will probably keep some of the major points from the original plot line, but some other things will be vastly different. Plus, I need to explore Zaizen and why he's such an evil bastard. Lots to do^^
