Title: "The Tale of the Kun-Lun Slave, or the Prince in the Basement"
Author: "Matrix Refugee"
Rating: PG-13 (mild slash)
Pairing: hints of Tatsumi/Tsuzuki, Tatsumi/Hisoka and Tsuzuki/Hisoka
Genre: UST, mild hurt-comfort
Comments: Written for InsaneJournal's "porn_battle", specifically their prompt "Yami no Matsuei, Tatsumi/Tsuzuki, the fairy tale comes true", but it ended up being more unrequited love than anything else. POTENTIAL SPOILERS for the climax of the Kyoto arc. Special thanks goes to the folks at little_details for suggesting the Chinese fairy tale that inspired it.

( In a way, the fairy tale did come true... )
