Ouran High School Host Club, 3 recs, Assorted Haruhi Pairings

Someone requested Haruhi/anyone but Tamaki, so here are a few recs.

Fandom Category: Ouran High School Host Club
Pairing: Haruhi Fujioka/Kyouya Ootori
Fic Title: The framework of the universe
Author: afrai
Rating/Warning(s): K/G
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: This one-shot is delightful. Afrai’s wonderfully dry wit is a perfect complement to Ouran’s inherent cracktasticness. And her characterization? Divine. I adore her Haruhi in all her blunt, unsentimental glory, and you will love her Tamaki’s scene-stealing, bombastic melodrama. This isn’t a typical romance--indeed could you think of 2 people less romantic than Haruhi and Kyouya? Still, there’s a lovely affectionate sweetness underlying Kyouya’s mercenary, strictly-business internal monologue that is so compelling, as evinced by the following excerpt:

When he'd first seen Haruhi without her glasses on, the beauty of her eyes had struck him, the way real beauty always stuns the observer at first sight. The years had worn the effect thin. Now they were just a part of Haruhi. He had their striking colour and limpid quality catalogued, the grave innocence of their gaze labelled as a marketable commodity, the length of their lashes noted as a product like any other he could turn to his profit - but when he looked into them himself, he only saw Haruhi, the one thing he couldn't sell.

Fandom Category: Ouran High School Host Club
Pairing: Haruhi/Male OC mainly, hints of Haruhi/Host Club
Fic Title: In the Circle of Elemental Arms
Author: Kryssa’s flute
Rating/Warning(s): M/R, Warnings for violence and allusions to poly-amory. If age-difference squicks you out, you might want to avoid this fic although **SPOILER: Highlight to read** there is no real relationship between the characters in question beyond flirting and a kiss at the end **END SPOILER
Genre: AU
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a fascinating, magical AU. In this world, some people are born with elemancy, or the ability to magically control the 7 elements: Light, Dark, Fire, Lightning, Wind, Earth, and Water (convenient, yes?). When you have a group with an elemancer for every element, it is possible to forge a Circle, which forms a permanent empathic bond among members and boosts their power. It is a deeply secretive and risky procedure, passed down through word of mouth and only with express permission. It’s forbidden to minors, but of course, that doesn’t stop the Host Club, who manage to successfully make one after a great deal of sneakiness. Another Circle takes them under their wing to teach them how to handle their new power. However, a disturbing number of young teens are turning up dead after botching a Circle forging, and before they know it, the Host Club is caught in the middle of a horrifying conspiracy. This is a seriously cool AU, with a fully realized magical world and incredibly compelling OCs (the Host Club’s mentors). The bond between Haruhi and her boys is lovely and a joy to read, but it is her infatuation with Takumi, her mentor, which is deliciously fraught. The twists and turns in this fic will leave you breathless. Highly recommended.

Fandom Category: Ouran High School Host Club
Pairing: Haruhi/Mori (aka Takashi Morinozuka)
Fic Title: Bee to the Blossom: Mori
Author: crazydiamond_
Rating/Warning(s): M/NC-17. Warnings for explicit sex
Genre: Humor/erotica
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Both hilarious and deliciously hot. Tamaki is inspired to take the Host Club on a field trip to the Red Light District. When Haruhi innocently muses about how unfair it is that there are no such "services" for women, the Host Club, aghast, leaps to conclusions and earnestly implores her never to pay for sex--instead, should she feel the need, she should ask one of them! Cue Haruhi’s hilarious imaginings of the awkwardness of what it would be like to solicit sex from one of her boys. she can’t stop thinking about sex, and even worse, she can’t help noticing Mori...

Hi, mods. I need tags for everything, basically. Also, the names have been switched around to the Western order (first name, then surname). For Mori, it might just be easier to tag him that way instead of with his full name, since that’s how he’s referred to in canon. It’s up to you. Thanks!
