Title: The System
Originally posted: 2/23/2009, on the kink meme. Link
Length: 1,600 words.
Characters/Pairings: Russia, America, England, France.
Premise: The Europeans are practicing their fencing, and then America catches Russia at something rather unusual.
Time period: Modern.
Smuttiness: 1/10
Funnyness: 5/10
Wrist slashiness: 0/10
Lolhistoryness: 3/10. Systema is a Russian martial art developed for Spetznaz, which is so effective at unbalancing and redirecting one's opponents that when it was first demonstrated in the West, many accused it of being a tool of Soviet propaganda, and not a fighting system at all. To an outside observer, attackers approaching a Systema master often look like they just fall down for no reason.
Violence: 4/10
Would I like it?: It's candy for Systema fans, but there's also plenty of America being a smartass and enduring unresolved sexual tension with Russia. Fans of fencing might also get a kick out of it.
