Hakuouki: Oni Dreams (poetry, HijiChi inspired)

*reposted/reformatted for blog purposes* -Hakuouki: Oni Dreams- In the night-every night-he can feel it. Pulsing. Burning. Aching. Closing his eyes, he holds his breath. He waits. The images come. These sored dreams are, for all their perversion, everything he cares to remember. And yet, he fights to forget. The sensation, reminiscent of the quench of … Continue reading Hakuouki: Oni Dreams (poetry, HijiChi inspired)

“Captains, On Her” (Poetry Collection — Hakuouki)

Hijikata: I hold her hand, so small, in mine. As our fingers intertwine, as her thick hair tangles in the crook of my neck, as her tears fall silently, one hand gripping tightly my yukata… her lips even now refusing to say my given name, too much even as she's shaking… Only now do I … Continue reading “Captains, On Her” (Poetry Collection — Hakuouki)

Declines and Swells (a ficlet based on “Hakuouki” media) —HaraChi

What’s in a Name? (a ficlet based on “Wild Dance of Kyoto” and “Warrior Spirit of the Blue Sky”) -HijiChi

*surprisingly spoiler free* Author's Note: If you've seen the films mentioned above, you'll remember the significance of Hijikata's letter.

Hence, "What's in a Name?" … Continue reading What’s in a Name? (a ficlet based on “Wild Dance of Kyoto” and “Warrior Spirit of the Blue Sky”) -HijiChi

Honor and the End-All: A Goku and ChiChi Expose (or “I Can’t Go On Not Loving You”)

Author's Notes: -Cover image from drops-miico on Pintrest- Do I really need to say it at this juncture? Spoilers ahoy! We are looking only at the anime, filler included. A post written without filler inclusion (and only on the subtitled version) could arguably reach the same place with a little stretching, but we're operating strictly within … Continue reading Honor and the End-All: A Goku and ChiChi Expose (or “I Can’t Go On Not Loving You”)
