    Bookmark Notes:

    I have never read a Yuu Yuu Hakusho fic that blends the vibrancy of the anime's fantastical elements with the human world its characters are supposed to inhabit as well as this fic does. Here, the dull human-ness of reality is not something to be escaped, but rather to exist alongside and maybe even embrace. The pairing is unconventional, but the pairing isn't really the point of the story. It's more about culture, families (of choice and otherwise), and attaining selfhood in the midst of the unfamiliar.

    Kurama's persona is spot on; he's likeable, mysterious, and caring with an edge of ruthlessness lurking under the surface. Hiei is fully himself without being a pastiche (a common pitfall in fanfic portrayals). It's his conversations with Yukina that take the most risks with, and give the most rewarding glimpses of, his characterization. Yukina was, for once, a fully realized individual with ambitions, hopes and a history outside of her brother's saga and her love interest's affections. It was refreshing to see Yukina as a person rather than a symbol for others. Everything this story did with her character made complete sense in an elegant and unexpected way. I enjoyed every word.
