"Ishin." She stilled. He walked past her, and turned around, his hands in the pockets of his slacks. There was amusement in his eyes, and a smirk playing around his mouth. He leaned down and placed his lips against her ear. "If this is war, remember that I will not hold back."
—Chapter 3: There are all kinds of War and fish.
Seduction is a Maid-Sama! romance/drama fanfic. It centers on the student council president, Tora Igarashi.
This fanfiction contains examples of:
Action Girl: Sarakshi Ishin, a judoka who isn't intimidated by... well, anything.
All Love Is Unrequited, Love Dodecahedron: Marjani loves Sarakshi. Linda wants/loves Marjani. Sarakshi has strong platonic love for Marjani that could easily become something else if she let it and isn't sure what she feels for Tora. Tora desires Sarakshi but would make out with nearly anything female and attractive. Yuki loves Tora but doesn't stand much of a chance with him. Fenshani likes Sarakshi.
Freudian Excuse: Subverted. Considering all Sarakshi has been through, you'd think she'd harbour at least some bitter feelings towards people who are better off. She doesn't. She's content with and enjoys her life; and the only reason she's snappish around Tora is that he's a massive jerk.
Moral Myopia: The fact that at any given time, he's surrounded by anyone who's female, attractive and willing? Normal. An attractive man levels a genuine smile at Sarakshi? Grounds for Tora to have the poor sod destroyed financially, you understand.
Heroic BSOD: Sarakshi has a minor one after escaping Kurumi's clutches in chapter 16. She does not take well to feeling helpless. To her (and his) surprise, Tora pulls her out of it, because he also doesn't take well to her feeling helpless.
I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Lots and deconstructed. While Marjani does believe this, he also doesn't actually believe he's good enough for Sarakshi, period. Linda, no matter what she says, would step aside if Marjani and Sarakshi decided to get together and Sarakshi herself doesn't want to get in the way of Marjani and Linda's relationship, especially since as far as she's concerned, Linda saw Marjani first.
"My wife and I are throwing a dance in honour of someone we consider as a daughter. We would.. appreciate it if you join us in our time of happiness." "You would.. appreciate if I join you." Sarakshi repeated drily. "Right. Because it isn't odd at all to go up to random people in the street, and let them know you'd appreciate if they joined you in your time of happiness."
Smells Sexy: Justified. Tora smells like really nice, really expensive cologne because he wears really nice, really expensive cologne. Sarakshi often smells like lavender and chocolate, but this is because of the perfumes she wears.
Woman Scorned: Kurumi is pissed that Sarakshi and Marjani are so close but more than that is the fact Marjani would prefer a commoner like Sarakshi rather than an ojou like her, even though she admits that neither her nor Marjani actually want the engagement in the first place.
Kaon Umekouji, enough so that she manipulates Tora (freakin'Tora) into getting Sarakshi expelled.
Yamato Nadeshiko: Yuki Shinomori is referred to as one in the story. Deconstructed when it's revealed that she believes it's an act she puts up because she's expected to act like an ideal traditional woman.
