Apart from its unusual pairing and premise, the story is notable for its length (71 chapters plus prologue and epilogue), its multiple plot arcs, its blend of serious character-driven drama and quirky humor, and writing [[PurpleProse a bit towards the lower-wavelength end of the visible spectrum.]] And Otacon's adorable in it.

[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2711502/1/Stray Stray]] is a VideoGame/MetalGearSolid SlashFic by Dahne that centers around a romantic relationship between [[Characters/MetalGear Otacon and Major Ocelot (also called Hal and Adamska, respectively, within the story)]]. Yes, that's the twenty year old Ocelot from ''Metal Gear Solid 3''. Not surprisingly, the story involves TimeTravel.

* AfraidOfNeedles: variation - Adamska's not afraid of ''needles'', he's afraid of what might be in the shot, on principle.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Otacon's brain seems to work in a slightly odd way, even apart from the whole "eccentric genius" business. Metaphors aren't his strong point, and at one point the story mentions that he's not great at reading facial expressions.

** Raikov as well, in a way. Adamska's convinced he's insane, and Raikov is certainly disturbingly odd in some ways, but nobody proposes a diagnosis.



* FreudianExcuse: Discussed.

to:

* FreudianExcuse: Discussed. It becomes particularly relevant when the issue of Adamska's {{Tykebomb}} upbringing is introduced.



* MoralityPet: Otacon for Adamska, in a way. "The only promise I can make is that I will never let anything hurt you. Including me."

* OppositesAttract

to:

* OppositesAttractOppositesAttract: Apart from being smart and having troubled pasts, Otacon and Adamska are virtual opposites. Otacon is dorky and good-natured but tougher than he looks, Adamska is a ruthless badass who keeps his vulnerabilities well concealed.



* TheWoobie: Otacon is a self-deprecating ShrinkingViolet with a screwed up and fairly traumatizing romantic past - and the events of the story aren't entirely easy on him either. Adamska has moments of woobieness as well, due to some rather traumatic plot developments and his own personal issues.

Added DiffLines:

* DrinkingGame: Hal and Adamska play one in an early chapter. It involves comparing the weirdness levels of various things they've encountered in their adventures. (It's also an in-character acknowledgement of just how weird the Franchise/MetalGear universe can get.)

to:

* YaoiFanboy: Otacon, although it's only mentioned in passing via an ExpospeakGag. (The context is the brief and anti-climactic tale of [[ComingOutStory How Snake Found Out Otacon Was Bi.]])
-->Fortunately it didn't come up, except when, say, he happened to get careless and leave something around with text that could be most accurately described in a phrase that ended in "...imi nashii" and illustrations that were described by Dave as "what the hell...?"

* LemonyNarrator: The prose style can get pretty chatty, and is the source of much of the story's odd humor.
