I have a very sweet, slightly cockeyed DOGS story for Yuletide! Badou teaching Nill to cook! Heine freaking out because Badou is letting Nill use a real knife! Naoto wondering whether she can - or should - let her guard down enough to enjoy being there! And Heine and Badou go up to bed together! D'awww!
Slice-of-life can be very tasty, and this is a good example.
