    Summary

    Ginko has lived a long time, through many names, through many lives. In his undying skin, he breathes, awaiting the next moment like he has every other. He has come into immortality, and lives his life as a mushishi in modern day. He's acquired his own shoppe, established his own business, and has made a mark on the town without ever bringing himself into the limelight.

    "Celadon Cicadas" is an episodic story that explores Ginko's mushishi life in modern day, and how the past seems to catch up to Ginko once he takes on an apprentice. Post-Series.

    Summary

    This is a revision of "The Heart of the Sea Sleeps In Man"
    Because the fic is so old now (started back in 2007!) my writing style has changed a great deal. The old chapters no longer match the new chapters, and so I'll be rewriting and improving them.
    The new versions will be posted here instead of replacing the original chapters, because I'd like to be able to go back and see just how much of a difference there is.

    If you decide to read along as well, please let me know what you think of the changes.
    Thank you!
