NOTES: I’m going to try and do this as a series of shorts, like for PGSM,
so...uh.. >_> Enjoy. I really appreciate feedback! I often get the details of a
series confused (but remember, this is a combo anime-manga-drama-verse) so if I
make a mistake or you think I could improve on something, I’d appreciate hearing
about it! And hey, if you like it, then that’ll make me happy, too. ^^ [I’m so
sad! No one ever writes for Gokusen!]

Pigtails. Shin couldn’t decide if she actually just liked to wear them
(she was a lot like a kid sometimes) or if it was part of the disguise. The
glasses as well. Glasses and pigtails. She looked like an over-grown grade-
schooler sometimes, shorter than everyone in the class, standing at the front of
the room. Short. Tracksuit. Pigtails. Glasses.

Maybe he was crazy.

For English class, everyone moved their desks to the front and crowded
around “Shizuka-chan~”, books ready and eyes focused, more than likely, on some
favourite part of her anatomy as she moved. For Math with “Yankumi” the desks
were far back and no one really cared about her anatomy. Part of that were the
pigtails, but mostly, it was probably the track suit. Fujiyama-sensei wore
skirted-suits and high heels, after all.

Shin’s desk stayed put regardless of the situation – whichever teacher
taught, whatever was going on, even if a fight broke out and everyone else moved
theirs to the sides. Shin’s desk never moved.

“….you guys can’t use calculators, that’s why! Even a warehouse won’t hire
you if you can’t add and subtract!” She was scowling at Uchi again, the usual
argument repeating itself.

Shin laid his head back on the desk and let his eyes slide nearly shut,
head tilted and propped up on his arm. He could see her from here, but to anyone
else he looked like he was asleep. The words weren’t important – he’d learned
this kind of basic math back in grade school – but he liked to study her. She
didn’t pay attention to him in class unless he did something to get her attention.
Outside of class, she would come to the roof for his advice, but in class he was
practically invisible.

She looked unassuming, easy to ignore, until someone made a comment that
set her off. When that occurred, there was the narrowing of her eyes, her back
straightening further, and a that demon-aura: The face she put on whenever
someone insulted the Yakuza or when her secret was threatened to be exposed. It
was entirely different from (but nearly equally as frightening as) the face she
wore when fighting.

“Okay, so here’s the easy trick: See how I write 9-1 down here on the
right, vertically? Now starting from the 8, I’ll write 1-0 beside it on the
left…” One of her pigtails was stuck on her shoulder, the other falling down her
back. Shin’s arm was growing numb where his head rested on it.

She could be... really oblivious for someone in her position. How many
times had he diverted the others’ attention so they wouldn’t notice something?
Something like their sensei’s resemblance to the Ane-san outside of Tenkai-Kumi
office, or how her “distant relatives” who came and taught them basketball were
really strange. “Oi, you know Yankumi. She loves Yakuza movies; it probably runs
in the family.” Okay, so it was ridiculously easy, but without his intervention
she probably would have been discovered a dozen times over by now. Not to
mention the number of times he had taken hard hits in her fights. (He did his
best to keep the time he had been used as a hostage out of his mind.)

And she was completely unaware. He knew her Grandfather had somehow
approved of him; it was a strange feeling to receive from the head of a Yakuza
clan. It was even stranger to be able to stay there overnight when escaping
some family problems.

At home she was different. Everything was different. It was a bizarre
combination of Fighting-Yankumi and Yankumi-the-Sensei. Her hair was sometimes
down, other times in pigtails, however the glasses and track-suit were
definitely gone, replaced with comfortable jeans and t-shirts rather than
anything like what Fujiyama-sensei probably favoured. But even casual like that
– sitting in a doorway or feet tucked under her at the table where she marked
tests, it was different. Tetsu and Minoru bowed to her repeatedly, calling her
“Ojou” while fumbling over one another trying to keep her happy. She seemed
oblivious to the longing look Tetsu often gave her, which was both good and

The Yankumi at home was serious, casual, goofy, relaxed and unguarded in a
way she rarely was at school. He’d seen her spar with several of the members of
the house “just to stretch her muscles” – people he wouldn’t have challenged
unless he had a damn good reason. She took them out like they were nothing,
then laughed with the scariest of them, Kyo-san, over how out-of-shape they

Class 3-D didn’t have a clue.

Finally, the class and the day were over, the others scrambled out of the
room with their things while she shuffled papers at her desk, humming a little.
Shin stretched back in his seat.

“Oi, Sawada, class is over!” She didn’t even look up from her papers. She
frowned, bit her lip, then stuck her tongue out at something before smiling
again and gathering her things. Shin pushed his chair back, lifted his bag so it
was slung over one shoulder and walked up to the front of the now-empty class
room. She still hadn’t looked at him. She dug through her bag until she found
her cell-phone instead. “Oh good, don’t want to lose this again…”

“Kumiko.” That was enough. She looked up, startled, mouth open, eyes
confused, ready to say something. Something likely about how “Yankumi” was okay
but she was a teacher after all, so Kumiko wasn’t—He cut her off, lips pressed
to her open mouth briefly. A puff of breath escaped from him, softly, and
settled into her. “Look at me next time, baka.”

And he left; glad his back was to her because his cheeks felt a little

Yamaguchi Kumiko slowly raised her hand to her mouth and stared at the
open doorway. “Sawa…da…?”

ahahaha! One of those rare ShinKumi fics! And it's in English! Very nice and very cute. Keep on writing!
8th-Mar-2005 04:09 am (UTC)
!_! There are others!? I've been looking, but everything I find is in Japanese!
8th-Mar-2005 06:36 am (UTC)
I read the Japanese fics ^^;;; and that's why I adore you! You're the first Gokusen English fics' author I know!
8th-Mar-2005 04:13 am (UTC)
Oh wow. Loved it. XD I loved how he started off thinking about her pigtails and then had so many other observations about her starting from that. So cute! I think you had Shin down very nicely. :3

Hehe, the sudden kiss. What a lovely way to end challenge #1! :D

I'm so glad that this is 30_kisses...that means 29 more shorts for this pairing! XD

8th-Mar-2005 04:44 am (UTC)
I'm glad you liked it! I need them to sub drama 7 so I can get more inspiration!
8th-Mar-2005 05:43 am (UTC)
I only watched the anime...I've got my hands on the first five episodes of the drama too...but haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet. >_<

Reading this fic makes me want to watch the drama badly~
8th-Mar-2005 06:27 am (UTC)
!_! The drama is -excellent-. Really stellar. You should definitly make some time to watch it!
>_> Though, does anything beat the episode with the field trip, or the one where Yankumi climbs his balcony? Ahh, <3
8th-Mar-2005 05:45 am (UTC)
:O! Gokusen fic! I <3 you! XDDDD; Hahahaha

This is great~ ^^ Can't wait to read more! hahaha
8th-Mar-2005 06:26 am (UTC)
<3 XD Glad you liked it!
8th-Mar-2005 07:39 am (UTC)
I really like it. I am only watching the drama, which I love. And I agree about the pet boy. XD
8th-Mar-2005 07:44 am (UTC)
!_! You have a Sawada icon! I'm totally planning to make one, but that's gorgeous! Have you watched the Kimi wa Petto drama? Classic. And it's Matsumoto Jun again, to boot!
8th-Mar-2005 05:48 pm (UTC)
Yes, I have! Wasn't he cute?! Momo!!!!! And it was also the reason, I got into dramas at all and into Arashi. *g*
8th-Mar-2005 11:19 pm (UTC)
lol Arashi is hillarious, Matsumoto Jun is -wonderful-. I'm disapointed that the second season of the drama doesn't have him in it! How sad! But... I just keep waiting anxiously for more episodes of the first season. XD
8th-Mar-2005 01:49 pm (UTC)
Oh. My. God.

Gokusen fic! [devours and makes nummy noises]

8th-Mar-2005 05:17 pm (UTC)
XD Thanks~!
8th-Mar-2005 08:56 pm (UTC)
*swoon!* Great work! I can't believe there are even Gokusen fics floating about! And Shin x Yankumi ones too! <3 ^__^ Great fic! Shin's POV was written very well and he's one smooth guy! XD Can't wait to see more from you~
8th-Mar-2005 11:10 pm (UTC)
XD He's so wonderful, how could I resist writing it? <3 Shin~
8th-Mar-2005 09:29 pm (UTC)
ShinKumi!!! happiness!! ^____^ so terribly cute and Shin and cute and Yankumi! Shin! uh. yes. happy!!

...damn I want to see the Kimi wa Pet drama.

(also, if you haven't seen it, Gokusen drama 7 subbed is out...)
8th-Mar-2005 11:13 pm (UTC)
!_! 7 subbed?! Thank you for telling me! Eee, I'm so excited!
Watch KimiPet. Seriously. I think they have a 1-10 on d-addicts, or at least it's on IRC, because I managed to get a hold of it and just ...died of happiness. My roommate and I watched it all in one night. It was that good.
8th-Mar-2005 11:58 pm (UTC)
KimiPet is on BT? --it is! thank you, I found it! ^__^ just read the manga - what's out in English - this weekend, my sis had seen the drama before and now I'm dying to see Jun as a dog it. (hmm, I wonder if this is a subbed version, or raw...ah well, cute either way...!)
9th-Mar-2005 01:25 am (UTC)
It'll be subbed. ^^ I have the scanlations of KimiPet up to.. 3-16, so I'm anxious to buy the manga in English when I get money a chance. ^^
11th-May-2007 05:50 pm (UTC)
I know you don't know me at all and I'm not part of this conversation, but I was wondering where to find those Kimi Wa Petto scanlations. If you could tell me, I'd love you forever ^^
11th-May-2007 08:01 pm (UTC)
._. My computer actually fried after that and I lost them, but... they're out in English now? Tokyo Pop does it under the (really crappy) name "Tramps Are Us" for pretty cheap. Hopefully that helps? Sorry!
9th-Mar-2005 02:14 am (UTC)
Happiness!! Omg, wonderful wonderful fic! Yes, why AREN'T more people writing Gokusen fic...*sigh* but oh you do it so well and that was utterly adorable and um...I LOVE Shin in this and just wai wai! They make the most adorable couple. That is my one problem with season 2 of the Jdrama...no Shin. *whimper* I just keep telling myself he's off at college and he's coming to come back when he graduates and claim her and all will be right with the world...err...yeah...

OTP anyone? ;) Anyway, this fic was wonderful, in character and I very much want more along the same happy lines!
9th-Mar-2005 03:36 am (UTC)
;_; I know, I'm afraid for when the subs get onto season 2 drama because..I mean, if there's no Shin, will it really keep my interest? I adore him! ;_; I want him to become the leader of the Oedo family...

XD I'm really glad you like it, thank you very much!
9th-Mar-2005 05:58 am (UTC)
I mean, if there's no Shin, will it really keep my interest?

Two reallllly hot, rather slashy boys help with that. Well, and kitten boy, who's just adorable...well, all five of the new main boys are pretty cute in fact...err...I'm not shallow...really...

Though in truth I do miss Shin...a LOT...a lot a lot! I keep hoping maybe he'll guest star in the last ep or something...alas...he and Yankumi MUST be together!!! but none of the boys in this season are really after her cause they're all too busy doing each other and the random guy she's crushing on just is too sweet/innocent for her...so um, yeah, its still all about Shin (even if he's not mentioned -__-) But he WILL! (at least in my own happy fantasy if nothing else...)
9th-Mar-2005 02:08 pm (UTC)
Kitten boy?!

Okay, you've guarateed that I'll at least watch several episodes of it. Plus, I am clearly all about the slashy cute boys. XD
9th-Mar-2005 02:18 am (UTC)
Yay, Gokusen fic! I've only seen the anime, but I love Gokusen and I absolutely loved this fic. Looking forward to reading more.
9th-Mar-2005 03:34 am (UTC)
You'll adore the drama, definitly watch it! You can download it via bit torrent on d-addicts, or at SARS fansubs. XD I'm glad you like the fic! (Also, though USHI has closed, they have manga up to v5c9)
23rd-Oct-2006 01:22 pm (UTC) - Too great
Thanks for this fic!!! I really want them to be together! I saw the animate and find it so great!! But they weren't together at the end so !!! Is the drama better for this point?
Really I miss an end like that!!! If you say sadawa in not in the second part it makes me sad but i will love to try it anyway! Thanks for this! It makes me dream!
continue please :)
23rd-Oct-2006 01:52 pm (UTC) - Re: Too great
22nd-Jan-2007 03:33 am (UTC)
Oh, lovely. Lovely. I love this pairing and I wish that the manga/anime/drama ANY of it would have gone down this route, even for a moment. But alas, I'll just have to rely on a small amount great fic like this one.
22nd-Jan-2007 03:34 am (UTC)

24th-May-2007 02:18 am (UTC)
