Salvaged another form the KxBB shoot.
Our Holiday Shoot is coming up in the next few days. Stay tuned for more Maru!B madness.
This was actually an accidental photo. Maru pressed the shutter without hitting the timer setting.
But we like how it came out.
Nurse B is
Kira is Disclaimer #1 - the pairing:
The Beautiful People shoot (named for the Manson song) centers on Kira x Beyond Birthday, a pairing we've been meaning to hit up for *eons.* The last time we intended to shoot them, it turned into a Light x L shoot-oops.
I'll say right now, neither Anda nor myself see Kira cowering in fear of Beyond Birthday as seems to be a popular notion with fandom. Bah fandom. Notorious for not giving Kira his due credit and constantly booting him out of character by undermining his attitude and his brilliance.
In our fic 2B, our handling of the Kira x B pair portrays them in some ways as kindred spirits (Ls antagonists--are they working together?), in other ways as clever adversaries (Ls lovers vying for L's exclusive attention)simultaneously for and against L in different forms, but never moved by the common black and white concepts of jealousywhich is too mundane for these geniuses, after all, blatant jealousy would be far too predictable and boring, they have to think of more intricate ways to deal with each other.
In 2B Kira and Beyond are, in short, extremely complex, each using the other in their own elaborate--twisted--plans to keep L forever engaged. There's no love, merely mutual darkness, morbid sexuality and extraordinary brilliance in a constant duel. Kira's idealism, versus B's grotesque cynicism. We love them.Disclaimer #2 - Nurse B.
Nurse B refers to a scene in 2B or Not 2B where B appears to a character in a Nurse's uniform (after having killed the nurse of course.) Yes. It is our homage to Nurse Joker, we make no illusions about it, it was done very deliberately. The way we see it, B and TDK Joker share a similar sociopathic mindset. I've been wanting to shoot Nurse B for months, planned to do it for Halloween, but Joker himself took over that plan instead LOL. The way Nurse B translated over into the shoot is a tad different from the fic--but that's because we had Marilyn Manson on a permanent loop in the background and B decided to put on lingerie and bondage tape under his uniform.
