    Summary

    A fusion of the novel backstory with the drama canon. Because ten thousand years of angst was to tasty to resist, and gods are fun to play with.

    Amazing series! If the plotholes in the drama bothered you as much as they did me, then definitely give this a shot, as it explains and corrects things without invalidating anything that happened in the show, which is a pretty cool feat on the part of the author. Also, the relationship development in this really floored me, because it gave Shen Wei the love, recognition and support that drama Zhao Yunlan really couldn't manage (though through no real fault of his own), but without getting sappy or OOC.

    The only bad thing about this fic is: It's. Way. Too. Short! Cool characterisation, awesome badass couple dynamic, intriguing backstory, plus the edge of barely-restrained violence permeating the whole thing is so damn thrilling.

    Interesting plot, lovely characterisation, and an intimate scene that's at once wonderfully romantic and fabulously steamy.

    Summary

    In which Zhao is given the opportunity to become Spirit Detective.

    'The man was frowning but it seemed more like a pout and Zhao was positively gleeful.

    “Shen Wei, the pleasure is all mine,” Zhao winked and gave a mock bow with a hand flourish, softly cursing as his momentum made him do another three-sixty rotation. He grinned sheepishly as he came to a stop.

    Zhao saw the tiny amused smiled that played at the edges of those soft-looking lips. “You’re very… Lively for someone who just died.”

    Really enjoying how the story is developing so far, in terms of plot, characters and relationships. I actually think it's better if you (like me) know nothing about Yu Yu Hakusho going in, as things feel fresh and original that way.

    Hoping against hope that the author will see this through to the end!

    Since I'm doing the rounds for "bests" in the Guardian fandom, after best proposal fic and best first time fic comes, inevitably, the best "last time" fic. And this definitely deserves that honour: spot-on characterisation, a well-written intimate scene, and a tragically beautiful ending.
