Description:

Kintsugi (金継ぎ, "golden joinery") is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

In which a group of very different people go through horrible things, but, with the help of others, they take the long, long road to recovery. The main characters are Nishikiyama, Majima, Nishitani, Kiryu and Haruka, but they don't always appear in certain fics. Takes place over a long time, and diverges from canon massively in 1996, during the ten year time skip in Yakuza Kiwami. Extremely dark, so mind the tags and please don't read if you think it will trigger you.
