I finally finished this fic that I've been working on since November!!! This is super weird, but for whatever reason, the story spoke to me, and so here it is… 13,000 words based on a weird Ya-ya-yah episode from 12 years ago.

Please please please read the author's note!! This fic requires a lot of explanation, and I really don't want to confuse or accidentally offend anyone!

And… please enjoy, ahaha.

title:くさ夫くん物語 (Kusao-kun Monogatari; The Tale of Kusao-kun)
rating: pg
pairings: Kusao/Shigeko, Koyama/Yabuko, Hikaru→Inoo (please read the author's note!!)
warnings: talk of pregnancy; mentions of a couple with an age difference. Hikaru's character is presented in sort-of a negative light here, so if that might bother you please read with caution.
word count: 13,360
beta: yomimashou
author's note: This is an AU based on the November 11, 2003 episode of Ya-ya-yah, which is the "Law Quiz" episode. If you haven't seen it, it basically is a series of quiz questions asked by Koyama to the teams (Yabu and Hikaru; Shoon + Taiyo + Matsumoto Kohei; Shige and Kusano; Tegomass + Inoo) about whether average pranks and practical jokes are actually against the law. The quiz questions are presented in the form of scenarios featuring "Kusao-kun," who seems to be your basic socially awkward high school asshole, and his true love, "Shigeko-chan." Also featured are Kusao's friend Koyama and his crush, Yabuko, and his other friend Hikaru. Basically, it's like a weird high school drama with characters based on the people who appeared in the episode. This is a story about those characters. More than an AU of real life (where Shige and Yabu are gender-swapped), I sort of see them as separate characters. This is set 12 years after the events in that episode, after they're all grown up and out of school. It's also divided into two parts because LJ sucks, but I just divided it at about the halfway point; it's meant to be read at once as one fic. Sorry for the inconvenience!
summary: Kusao doesn't have a lot to give besides his love, but if he can support Shigeko and earn her love in return, then for him, that's more than enough.
