I watched Ninja Assassin for the very first time this past summer. I was encouraged to do so by my friend Ankhesen, who pimped Raizo and Mika so much that I was compelled to see it. Plus, I love assassins and ninjas, so it was truly a no-brainer. Raizo, played by Rain, is very attractive and quite amusing in this film. But the real draw for me was the character of Takeshi, played by Rick Yune. There are two reasons for this:
1. Takeshi is sexy as hell. And the ninja outfit is a definite plus. I found myself pausing certain scenes in the movie so I could drool over him like a mental patient with a nice dose of Thorazine.
2. Takeshi is a minor character, and therefore largely ambiguous. He screams for exploitation. I could give a rat's tit that he's a bad guy; that just makes him more appealing to me.
"Adrenalin" is the result of a conversation I had with Ankh. She asked me months ago to write a NA fic, and I didn't think I would be able to do it due to other commitments. But I watched the movie multiple times and got inspired. We talked about the kind of woman a man like Takeshi might want, and "Adrenalin" is the result.
I should warn you that this fic contains explicit sex, language, violence and adult situations. I don't shy away from anything that I think might contribute to a good story. So for those of you who prefer their fanfics pristine and safe, you will do well to avoid this one. For the rest of you, I hope you enjoy.
