L'un et l'autre (Fanfic100)  
Title: L'un et l'autre
Fandom: Detective Conan
Characters: Kaitou Kid, Nakamori (General series)
Prompt: #44—circle
Word Count: 259 words
Rating: PG
Author's Notes: I do not own Detective Conan. It all belongs to Gosho Aoyama. I simply borrow the characters, tie them up, and dance them around like life-sized puppets. I do wish they’d stop complaining.
Summary: A meeting between thief and Inspector is interrupted by a phone call.

It was another busy heist night for the Kaitou Kid Taskforce, under the direction of their volatile leader. Nakamori-keibu was in particularly fine (swearing) form, particularly when the rest of his men got caught in Kid’s trap, leaving only him to face their most worthy of adversaries.

“Excellent job tonight!” the thief said approvingly, his applause muffled by his gloves. His eyes sparkled with unmuted glee, one of them darkened behind the ring of glass that was his trademark monocle.

Try as he might, Nakamori couldn’t quite keep himself from muttering something decidedly unprintable in response.

Kid looked like he was going to respond when a digital song interrupted them—a cell phone ring.

“Mine!” Kid cheered, fishing into his pocket and withdrawing the source of the ring. He paused to glance at the caller ID screen, and a wide smile broke on his face. He flipped it open and put it to his ear. “Ta voix est la chanson des anges!”

Nakamori stared blankly as Kid began carrying on a conversation with someone…in what appeared to be fairly fluent French. After about thirty seconds of this, he could no longer hold in his curiosity, and he spoke up. “Who the hell are you taking to?”

The white-clad thief turned away from his phone for a moment. “Chat Noir.”

“…the French cat burglar?”

“The one and only,” he nodded before returning to his conversation.

It took him a second to process this and all the implications thereof. Then Nakamori-keibu dropped his face into his hands. “Oh dear God…he’s NETWORKING.”

PS. The greeting Kid uses when he answers the phone is actually a pick-up line, translating to “Your voice is the song of angels!” The title means “The one and the other.” Much love to jeva_chan for helping me out with that. I don’t speak the language xD In other words, if it’s wrong, BLAME HER. Just to clarify, Chat Noir is a French burglar who appeared in one of the Kid files, the Goldeneye case.

Thanks for reading, all! Much love!

Chat Noir does not get enough love! *SQUEEEEEEEEEES!* Go Kid!

*laugh* I know! Chat Noir should get more attention ^___^

Thanks, hon! *glomps*

LOL! Priceless crack. Kid cheering "Mine!" and grabbing his phone is just great. XD And Nakamori's comment about networking ... LOL.
Candyland: DC: Tokyo Metro PDcandyfics on January 22nd, 2008 04:09 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :D The networking comment was actually the whole point of the fic--I can imagine his horror...and also him hearing that end of the phone conversation.

Kid: So, steal anything good lately?
Nakamori: ...

ö.ö Wonder what KID's ring tone is!
Candyland: DC: Toichicandyfics on January 22nd, 2008 04:11 pm (UTC)
I think it's "Man, I Feel Like a Woman" by Shania Twain *laugh*

Cherelle_Holmes: Heiji OMG!!!cherelle_holmes on January 22nd, 2008 08:29 pm (UTC)
o_o could be possible... or "A kind of magic" from Queen XD

*squishes* ^_____^
Candyland: DC: Kazuhacandyfics on January 23rd, 2008 09:09 pm (UTC)
Maybe it's "Secret Agent Man." Ya know...

Secret agent man
Secret agent man
They've given you a number
And taken away your name...

Ya know--Kid? 1412? Yes/no/maybe/lobster? *glomps*
M.O.N.A.: Chosen! - BRran_mouri82 on January 27th, 2008 06:26 am (UTC)
Lobster! *sluuuuuurp!*

Maybe it's music from Lupin III? I'd say "I'm Too Sexy", but according to a certain synopsis of the second DC Drama, that's already taken. ^_^
Candyland: DC: Kid (Mouthless Wonder)candyfics on January 28th, 2008 04:35 am (UTC)
...eww! xD

*laugh* "I'm Too Sexy" is GIN'S song. Actually, I hold Kaitou Kid's theme song to be "You Can Get Away with Anything" from The Woman in White. It fits him PERFECTLY.

You can get away with anything
It all comes down to style
You'll have a captive audience
As long as you beguile
Yes, you can have your cake and eat it
The love of those whom you betray
But you can't get away with anything
If you don't get away!
M.O.N.A.: Nani?! - SMran_mouri82 on January 29th, 2008 03:11 am (UTC)
Oh my gosh, that *is* perfect! XD

*hearts* That's brilliant! My muse tells me that she was watching the heist on the international news and decided to call him. XDDD
Candyland: DC: Aokocandyfics on January 23rd, 2008 09:08 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I like the way your muse thinks ^.~ I suspect their conversation includes the question, "So, steal anything good lately?" *cackles*
Katy: Moonlightingytak on January 24th, 2008 02:28 am (UTC)
Kid: "Well, I did pick up this shiney rock today. It just went 'steal me!' You know how it works."
Candyland: DC: Kaitocandyfics on January 24th, 2008 03:52 am (UTC)
...love you. You win so hard XDDD
Katyytak on January 24th, 2008 04:14 am (UTC)

Did I mention that I love the use of a pick up line to answer the phone? That seems just like the sort of thing a proper kaitou would do.

Lurker from the Deeps~
I just had to share the image that popped into my head after reading the "Mine!" from Kid:

Inpector Nakamori, with wide, terrified eyes darting in all directions, desperately clutching a large gem while peching on top of a rock close to the sea; and all around him, grinning toothily at their prey, are dozens upon dozens of Kaitou Kids, all cheering "Mine!" "Mine!" "Mine!" "Mine!"

*snickers at the thought of this being a nightmare for the poor inspector after he watches 'Finding Nemo'*

Re: Lurker from the Deeps~
... Oh god, that's priceless. I think I love you.

Re: Lurker from the Deeps~
*pleased* Thanks!

I love all your stories, so that compliment is going to make me smug for the rest of the day. :D

Re: Lurker from the Deeps~
...whoever you are, you are my hero ~♥♥♥

I might put this out as a fanart request on my own LJ, if that's all right? It's just too priceless of an image to NOT be drawn :D

Re: Lurker from the Deeps~
Sure! I'd love to see artists' responses to that as well. :)

*shrug* And while I'm a sad little anonymous lurker, usually when I do bother to lable myself, it's with 'NNF'. *Troy McClure voice* You may remember me from other such famous posts as... uh... yeah.

marsdejahthorismarsdejahthoris on January 23rd, 2008 04:22 pm (UTC)
*dies snickering* Oh God. Still, Keibu, it could be worse. They could be flirting. :)

Lovely. Just absolutely lovely. And yes, I can see Kaito being quite fluent in French.
Candyland: DC: Satou/Takagicandyfics on January 23rd, 2008 09:06 pm (UTC)
*cackles* Oh, that would be divine! :D Except Hakuba might get jealous.

Thank you! ^_____^ I figure being multi-lingual comes with the territory when one is an internationally-infamous jewel thief.

theme song
Actually, I would think that his theme song would be Entertain You (Linkage if you haven't heard it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwp49TEKudE )

*Dives back down into lurker status* Love your fics by the way, even if I never comment.
Candyland: DC: Conan-Kid (Detective and thief)candyfics on January 30th, 2008 04:17 pm (UTC)
Re: theme song
Oh, I know that song! Didn't even think of it! That would fit him to a T as well z(^o^)b

*waves* Hello, and welcome ^___^ Glad you're enjoying my stories. Feel free to pop in anytime *is lurker-friendly 'round here*

Icon love ♥

I'd LOVE to see that in visual. It'd be Priceless. Gosho Aoyama, YOU BETTER BE READING THIS!!!...If this actually apears in the manga I'd be a very happy girl.
