  1. Summary

    '-Jesse smoked in silence, considering hard. It wasn’t just that he’d already used up his usual supply of personal trivia and ‘there I was-’ anecdotes with the archer, it was the way the real stories would crowd at his mind when Hanzo asked that.
    The radio.
    How he’d earned his favorite belt buckle.
    Joe Gay.
    Waking Deadeye.
    ‘Missy’.
    How he’d lost his arm, and whose arm he was wearing now.
    Why he’d killed for the first time.
    ...The lariat.
    Tales he didn’t tell, some of them still classified so hard that just knowing them could change Hanzo's bounty...'

    Summary

    If you want something a little different (and maybe a lot Western) that's an odd little bar in Koenji run by legitimate cowboy and westerner, Jesse James McCree, who sells his home cuisine of nachos, enchiladas, tacos, and quesadillas with salsa fresca and guacamole that is alleged to be made with tequila. It is a well-kept secret, but don't let his profuse amount of English and Spanish overwhelm you - his Japanese is also quite good, and there is Japanese help to assist you. Just be careful: he flirts back. With anyone.

    // In which the Prince of the Shimada Clan finds the weirdest, most unlikely place to hide away from his responsibilities and becomes slowly enamored of the bizarre Gaijin that runs this slice of the Southwest.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Hands-down one of the best characterization jobs I've seen, especially for casually-on-the-run Jesse. Hanzo is excellent too as a heartsick but still-in-the-game Yakuza prince. Lots of bar/restaurant details, but it's really about the man who chose them. -Think of Rick's Cafe in 'Casablanca'.

    Comfortable-immersion to special ops wakeup arc in progress.
    It'll end in running away to Mexico, or gunsmoke, and I still don't know which one.

    Summary

    Exile of the Shimada clan, Hanzo has found himself many odd jobs while on the run. Dealing with a coyote problem while passing through the American Southwest should be no different. But what does the obnoxious man in the cowboy hat have to do with it?

    Summary

    He’d always known it was going to happen. There weren’t many ways to go for a rogue like him, but all in all he would have much preferred a clean hole in his skull rather than being hanged for robbery and murder. Especially because this one single, fucking time he was not guilty.

    McCree is having the worst time of his life and an outlander happens to save his sorry ass.
    Things go awfully weird after that - and he enjoys it all too much.

    Solid old-west McCree/Hanzo. Good redemption arc, particularly on Jesse's end.

    Summary

    Hanzo is a wanderer, always on the move after leaving his home and his duties. However, when winter comes and he finds himself in an abandoned town, he decides to stay for a while. A large, three-legged wolf accompanies him, though the animal appears to be more than what first meets the eye.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The one that feels like a Jack London novel. Low-drama postapocalyptic.
    Quiet Were-Jesse and Hanzo.
