Hm, that's not pretty fair to leave it half-way or done like in this case (smiles).
I agree, Kaien is pretty reckless to call the manly noble "cute".
Hope, you'll write a continuation soon.
Btw, I know the artist of the image you linked in your introduction. She offers great Kaien x Byakuya centred artwork and doujinshis.

Thank you so much for reading! Yes, know that it cuts out just when the gettin' is getting good, but...this took so long to write as it was. Wanted to write this from Bya's POV, but Kaien had to have his say. The rest will get written at some point, promise! Not quite sure when that'll be since Bya, Shuu, and Dante are much louder in gogo's head than Kaien. But it will be written! Promise!

And gogo would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see more from that artist gogo linked to in the intro. If you give gogo her name, will def. credit her in the intro post. Also, would love to buy some of doujins and whatnot to support her if she has some avail for sale. xoxo

Sorry, I missed this comment.
Just take your time. I think your readers can be very patient when it comes to your quality fics (smiles).
Rushia Katsuragi is the name of the artist. I recently ordered her latest published R-18 KaBya doujinshi. If you're interested, I can try to order from her for you next time, too.
Btw, your image is the (color) pin-up of SPIRANTHES - a Kaien Shiba book.

Aaroniero's outfit was pretty bad. That's why Rukia had to kill him. :(

Heeee~. Your Kaien characterization is so strong. This isn't a pairing I'd have ever thought of, can hardly even imagine them interacting -- but if we ever do get to see them interact -- say, in a flashback -- I bet it'll be a lot like this. (Well. Slightly less sex.)

Kaien is almost designed to ruffle the uptight, as if his prominence in and influence on Rukia's life wasn't enough of an irritant for her big brother. And despite the sex, you can still see that -- but Byakuya is drawn to him regardless, poor bastard.

For a man of such insistent nobility, he sure has surrounded himself with ruffians and street urchins. ;)

Kaien steals the show, but yes, Byakuya is also very nicely done here. And of course I love the last little bit especially; foolish Kaien, when you're already having sex with him by his reluctant leave, you shouldn't try his patience any further. XD That's just asking for trouble.

Almost the worst Arrancar outfit, ever. Not as bad as Zomari's, but still... Kaien was HOT, what was KT thinkin?

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Always loved the idea of Kaien being this "anti-aristocrat," and really liked what we got to see of him in Rukia's earlier flashbacks.

The first Kaien x Bya fic gogo did (again, for a request) used Kaien and Rukia's working relationship as a basis for why Kaien and Bya were interacting. Basically, inquiring as to Rukia's training was simply an excuse for Byakuya to see his once and future lover. *cough*

Anyway, gogo does sooo appreciate that you find this to be a strong Kaien characterization. Gogo's Bya muse is there, in the brain, all the time. But whenever Kaien comes to visit...DAMN...the sassy Shiba just takes over. ;3

And am so glad you acknowledge Bya's not-so-secret love of 'slummin' it' with the Rukongai types. You don't know how many people gogo has spoken to who seem to think that Hisana found her way into Sereitei rather than Bya finding her in the Rukongai. Sure, we don't know how they met, but gogo seriously doubts that she was working as a barista at the Sereitei Starbucks or anything like that...

Now gogo needs to write the finale to this piece, partly for Ling (who requested it), and partly cuz it just needs to be done. But first gogo needs to finish some Bya x Ren stuff that's been sitting around since last November, and some Bya general stuff, and...and...and...so much fiction to write, so little time. <3

Thank you again for reading, and for the lovely, thoughtful comment.
