Thuvia Ptarth: I have been thinking about Sweeney!YnM again.
Nestra: Excellent. Tell me more.
Thuvia Ptarth: Well, first I thought about Oriya, and how Oscar Wilde would probably be a patron of his restaurant/brothel. Then I realized the timing was wrong for Oscar Wilde. Then I realized this was a cracktastic AU based on the works of Yoko Matsushita and Kaori Yuki and I didn't have to care.

So [livejournal.com profile] ranalore gave me the title "A Ray of Realness" (though I think I'm going to change it), but anyway it gets the summary:

Yami AU/Sweeney Todd/Count Cain crossover set in something remotely resembling Victorian London, in a madhouse secretly run by Delilah (evil scientist/black magic organization controlled by Cain's evil dad). Noted local philanthropist Dr. Jezebel Disraeli and foreign philanthropist Dr. Thomas Moreau (aka Muraki) are on the board of directors. Tatsumi manages the place. The most infamous patient/prisoner is a beautiful violet-eyed amnesiac boy, convicted of several murders including that of his own sister but pardoned from hanging because of his obvious insanity, which varies from the comatose to the suicidal to the raving. He becomes strangely attached to the newest patient, a bad-tempered, very intelligent blond boy who insists he has been wrongfully imprisoned by wicked trustees who wish to claim his family fortune. Will they escape and find true and relatively nonviolent love?

Also starring the shinigami and various coworkers as nurses and orderlies.


Except that is not a summary, really. It is brainstorming. My brain is stormed.

[livejournal.com profile] nestra insists there should be hair-stroking. I am thinking we can have a tender scene of Tsuzuki sneaking into Hisoka's cell to stroke his hair (and freak him out) early in the piece and then later on, after they've escaped, he can lay his head in Hisoka's lap and Hisoka can stroke his hair. In the snow. While they are living homeless in the streets of London.

Nestra (who is very useful and by the way should read Saiyuki) confirmed that the asylum in Sweeney Todd is Fogg's Asylum. To be more precise, it is Mr. Fogg's Private Asylum for the Mentally Deranged. I wonder if they should be there while Joanna is imprisoned, or only after, when Toby is there. Oh, I think it should be Toby. There can be comments about that crazy white-haired kid who used to work for that meatshop nobody likes to talk about. And when Hisoka insists he's sane, Terazuma the orderly can roll his eyes and say, "Yeah, like that blonde girl" and then Wakaba the cook's assistant can point out the blonde girl actually was wrongfully imprisoned and then Terazuma can shout at her.

Mr. Fogg is the owner of the Asylum and he is Konoe. It's an AU. They need to have period-appropriate names. I just haven't figured them out yet. Anyway. He's usually away in the country or at his home at a more fashionable address, solicitating donations from rich philanthropists. The superintendent on the scene is Tatsumi, who is very mean to Tsuzuki because he is ashamed of the perverse lust he feels. (Nestra disapproved of this. She does not like it when people are mean to Tsuzuki. I can't help it. The Tatsumi in my head is so fucked up, yo. You put him in Victorian London and you put him in charge of helpless and far too beautiful inmates and you've got trouble. 'Cause Tsuzuki flirts like a boy with a desperate desire for love and a history of early sexual abuse.)

The question is, what state should Tsuzuki be in when Hisoka's first dragged in? Comatose or maybe relatively coherent? Comatose and yet prone to wandering around at night?

Also, there's this scene where Tsuzuki puts honey in his eye. It's Nestra's fault for looking for medical advice on the Internet.

I'm trying to decide whether Cain and Riff should show up. I love them, but I'm not sure I could balance the tones. And Cain is a problem, because people end up dead around him too often. I do not want Hisoka and Tsuzuki to end up dead. I want them to end up rich and living happily ever after in the English countryside.

Oh! And of course Hisoka's protestations of sanity aren't terribly convincing because he is an empath stuck inside an insane asylum, which is not the best situation he could be in.

This is the honey bit, for those who are interested:
