YKK Fanfiction

A friend of mine who is a Shoujo-ai writer and a fan of YKK pointed this one out to me. On the Worldshaking fanfic site, a place he frequents a lot, someone actually wrote a YKK fanfic that touches on the relationship between Alpha, Kokone, and Maruko. The author appears to be Australian because of the reference to Alpha's yearlong trip as a Walkabout. It's a nice little one shot fic that captures things nicely.

What is 'shoujo-ai'? What does it mean?

I think it is also called Yuri.
Yes, we like to watch...

One resource for this sort of thing in English is:

The way the term is increasingly being used by English speakers is shoujo-ai refers to love in a romantic way between girls, but yuri refers to the actual physical consummation (ahem).

So, these days, if you search for "yuri", it will give you porn, while if you search for "shoujo-ai", it will give you things more like Tomoko's love for Sakura (Cardcaptor Sakura), or Iina's love for her little sister, Kokoro (Kokoro Toshokan).

This same thing is being applied to the male versions; shounen-ai is affection, yaoi is gay sex.

Simple version:
shoujo-ai--girls hugging
yuri: naked girls hugging

I found that on ff.net It's based on Two Ships I think but takes place years later

Yeah, Carn, it's really a good one. I do not read fanfiction usually, but that one can recommend
