    Summary

    What starts with a sudden kidnapping reveals to be so much more: a prophetic call to adventure that had been foretold ages before the heroes of this story came around. In a world where the only thing extraordinary is the amount of unengaging ordinariness, below the seemingly mundane surface lies an incredible, lavish secret world that not many are privy to. From Whisperers of Death, to Dragons, to Kabuki Creatures and ghoulish Zombies, those aware of this hidden reality have fantastical journeys and adventurous trials lying in wait for them.

    Some seek to rescue a kidnapped friend and distribute justice while keeping malevolent forces at bay. Others plot to eliminate the existence of those pesky do-gooders, plans of conquesting combat and corrupting those that stand in their way. Others still just happened to be caught up in the cross-fire, and they are NOT happy about it.

    Whatever actions they take and consequences they face, at the end of the day, the sword shall always be sheathed.

    "There is no such thing as coincidence, there is only fate"

However one day when he is chased by a spirit, he stumbles upon a bakery where he meets two witches, Jade and Rose, and in exchange for his employment, his wish to be rid of these spirits will be granted. Until then, he is thrown deeper into the world of the supernatural, all the while acquiring his own romantically-interested spirit bodyguard?

    Summary

    But intertwining of destinies can be ugly business, Hajime finds, when their first meeting begins with blood and the too-human eyes of a beast.

    Summary

    Akaashi in the eyes of others would appear to be seemingly perfect. He had good grades, good looks and a good personality. Everything in Akaashi’s life had went smooth sailing. Not that he had such formidable luck but because Akaashi was a careful person. He planned everything in great details such that there was no room for error. Even if his plans did fall through to unseen circumstances, Akaashi always had a plan B. He also had a calm and collected mind. Whatever life throws at him, Akaashi was fairly certain he could overcome anything.

    That is until one strange fateful rainy night, he came across an injured owl with bright golden eyes in an alleyway that then and there, those eyes had somehow captured Akaashi’s heart. Since that eventful night, even stranger things start to occur..

    Summary

    The village of Iwatobi is in trouble. Fish shortages and lack of rain have made the villagers restless. In order to appease the great Sea God, a sacrifice must be made. Makoto had always feared the water and now he finds himself in the position of the sacrificial candidate.

    Chapter 3:

    “Lord Nanase –the Sea God—is he as the stories say? Does he appear before humans in the form of a giant, blue koi fish with long whiskers?” He asked hurriedly, seriously, arms flailing before pantomiming the last descriptive with his fingers over his own face.

    The boy stared at him blankly, for several long seconds. In that next moment, so quickly that Makoto almost didn’t hear, a soft snort forced its way out past that stoic mouth and the corners of the boy’s lips slanted up in a faint glimpse of a smile. The boy stretched up and placed a cool hand against Makoto’s cheek, rubbed the soft pads of his fingers against Makoto’s jawline.

    “Perhaps I should prevent you from entering the palace – if the barrier collapses and I help you breathe under the currents, maybe you’ll eventually grow gills on your own and I can keep you,” he mused.

    Summary

    I got the idea in my head one day to bring some of the Naruto characters face-to-face with the thing they were named after for the first time. I thought it might be fun. Also accepting challenges!
