Yaoi romance: Subotu and the ninth-born son ... next part!






Yaoi romance -- and the plot thickens! In yesterday's post, the young ronin warrior Subotu learned that he's being paid a fortune to go away and stop being a bad influence on the young man who is the ninth-born son of the king of this small kingdom. In this post ... the princeling at the crux of all this trouble learns what his father has decided -- and by the looks of this, the kid is about to get his Irish up!

Seriously ... this is a very nice story that's developing. This one makes about seven episodes! I guess I need to give this kid a name (still looking for one that fits him), and design his parents, and the warlord who captured him. And then I ought to go back and show how he and Subotu met ... and hint at where Subotu is from, since he's a nomad heading west on a big, beautiful horse, hiring out his warrior skills as he goes.

Hmmm. Let me think about this.

Not much coherence in today's post: I've come down with 'flu, on top of everything else. It's winter here, downunder, and there's a lot of 'flu going around. It's my turn to get it, and I have to admit, I feel ... exactly the way you feel, when you have a case of 'flu!

Looking for the rest of this series? Here they are:

The Yaoi Princeling ... young, beautiful, still full of arrogance, with his jewelry and his, uh, clothing intact. Then...

Looks like a captive now -- notice the jewelry is gone, and in three out of four images his, uh, clothes are as absent as his jewelry. Then ...

The ronin hero realizes he has a dangerous job to do -- alone in the wilderness he performs the ritual sword kata to purify his heart and mind before undertaking the mission. Then ...

Here comes the hero -- and what a hero. The scenes actually look like he's breaking into someone's stronghold to bust someone out. Notice, there's an extra sword in the bottom of the shot in two of the images. Then ...

Remorse! Look who's sorry now. But how could you stay mad at him, especially when he's been through such a tough time. Then ...

The Next morning, where Subotu finds out that fighting the battle and rescuing the princeling was the tip of the iceberg in terms of trouble. Then...

This post, where the news filters down to the prince himself. And nooobody (except maybe the king!) is happy about any of it.
