Okay, so! FFnet is actually not the only place to find some CaféMochaShippy stories, some have only been posted on pokanon (livejournal’s Pokémon kink meme) some… years ago… already… *sob*
Since it’s a kink meme, some are nsfw, others are pretty tame, a lot of them have issues / are not representative of what A Healthy And Totally Consensual Relationship is (but it’s pretty obvious that the authornon(s) (*COUGH* if they’re actually different people) clearly know what they’re doing so…). I’m organizing the ones I remember by order of sfw content >:3 It’s subjective, though, I priviledge consensual stuff over… things that are clearly not and assumed as such. I’ll do my best for trigger warnings - some REALLY need them and will make you feel uncomfortable… but at the same time, that’s (in my opinion) also faithful to Dent’s tone in Japanese. So, even more disturbing.
* Contradictory, 980~; Iris + Trip, very vague Cilan->Ash
”Attract won’t work if it’s between two males!”
Nothing triggery but… obsessive looking…? from Cilan’s part. Accidental crossdressing. Iris is a wonderful demon who doesn’t like to lose, and Trip is enrolled by force. Just awkward.
* CafeMocha on the house, 1100~; Cilan<->Ash (Iris, Pikachu).
”He’s self-conscious about his eyes.”
Reference to Cilan’s non-existent sclera in Best Wishes!. Light, fluffy, ‘desperately’ friendshippy, awkward, with at the same time some creepy behaviours (WATCHING YOU SLEEEEEP).
* ya ya ya ya yaaaaaaaa yamaaaaaaaask, 4300~; Ash, Iris, Cilan, Pikachu, Axew, Cilan->Ash (+ … Ghetsis in an omake.)
AHAHAHAHAHA. So, reference to BW014 (the museum where Cilan gets possessed by the Yamask mask): Satoshi keeps having nightmares about it and begins to fear Cilan when awake.
Warnings for mild-creepiness with possessed!Cilan and possessive!Cilan, some elements (even though tame and non-sexual) that do count as non-consensual. And the following omake is terrifying and hilarious at the same time. Ash’s narration is flowing all over the place and totally unstable, so the beginning of the text can seem really awkward (but makes sense!) while playing with the horror genre. Some BWOT3 fluffiness, some “NOPE NOPE NOOOOPE” moments and some simply “Dawwww”. (And then “… NOPE.” in retrospect.)
* The Return of Ashley, 3250~; Cilan/Ash, Iris, Pikachu.
”For whatever reason, Ash finds himself forced to dress like Ashley again. Cue Cilan going “:o WANT”. (Or, alternatively, Burgh/Ash, same idea. I want Ash in a dress with either Cilan or Burgh trying to get into his non-existant pants. And preferably succeeding. >:D)”
Warning for manipulation, so dubcon and not healthy (… while still outrageously light and fluffy and skippy), but it doesn’t go beyond making out.
… again, the “WRONG” parts are at the same time hilarious because of the narration and because Cilan is horrible, fabulous, in his own fabbu world. Crossdressing, Pokémon world’s logic, prepare to scream while dying of laughter. Cilan.
* The First Time, 2200~; Ash x Cilan.
”Someone give me Ash at about 15 or 16, having a shy adorable snuggly first time with a reassuring (but possessive) Cilan.”
Warning for sex-all-the-way (but consensual) with what is possibly identified as a minor (at least “young”), anal and oral.
Humour, clumsiness, sarcasm (with love!) toward the canon, assertive!Ash, Cilan being totally conscious that what Ash is making him do is totally reprehensible, and some French here and there.
(I can translate if necessary.)
* Bad Habit: A Tragicomedy, 12400~; Cilan x Ash, Iris, Pikachu, (Ghetsis) + Chili, Cress, N, Looker.
”Iris or Ash experiences the reverse of Stockholm Syndrome with a Plasma member; consequences." (Developped prompt in the thread)
Warnings: based on the theory that the Shadow Triad could be the Striaton brothers. Sequestration, angst, nothing is described but: existence and allusions and discussions of coercing/exaction involving sexual favours, trust abuse, non-described oral sex, so given the circumstances, non-consensual as a whole (even though some later elements can make it closer to dubcon but even more scream-worthy). So, A LOT of things especially reprehensible but more alluded to than described.
Iris+Ash feels, terrible terrible Cilan/Ash feels, a lot of sobbing and cursing and things that HURT you (and some characters). There is a plot. Ash is biting. Iris is a demon. Cilan manages to be sympathetic (… sort of) at some points. A lot of humour, irony and sarcasm; a lot of clichés being called out; a lot of mood whiplash; some curiously funny moments that are also stangely touching.
[That’s… probably my favourite CaféMochaShipping fic ever even though I’m biased on many levels - you have now a demonstration of why my tumblr username is what it is. But really, it’s sort of… organic.]
* (I would like to present…a Farce.), 4850~; Cilan, Ash, Iris, Pikachu, Delia, Chili, Cress ; Cilan/Ash, Chili/Cress.
… the pic-prompt says it all. Cilan decides this. Exactly this. Literally. Humour mixed up with a lot of considerations making the reader really uncomfortable. The fact that all is decided when Ash is ten is the reason why I’m putting this here (creepy anticipation of doom, for what is A BET WITH IRIS). Consensual but scream-worthy at a lot of moments. Oral sex, masturbation, some incestuous elements in the background (… but hilarious, I swear). The fact that you will probably hear Mamoru Miyano at some points doesn’t help feeling comfortable at all. So, uh… flamingly creepy? And consensual, with some fluff and a light tone.
* (No title), 820~; Cilan/Ash.
”Horribly inspired by this (pixiv link): Cilan is a part of the Shadow Triad as he travels with Ash. And he’s not really as kind as he seems (Cabernet spoke the truth), nor is he above human needs. / Ash taken by a mysterious white-haired stranger in the night.”
Warning: Shadow Triad Theory, so alternate interpretation of Cilan’s character. Trust abuse, blackmail, NOT OKAY, extortion, manipulation, non-consensual, oral sex, extrapolations and intentions REALLY disturbing in Cilan’s head; totally unloving in all regards (Cilan is a total bastard in this one).
And some hilarious comments about What Next from the author at the end.
Have a nice read~
