Title: Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go
Collection: Surfboards and Pineapple Pizza
Rating: G
Content of Note: Major Character Death (Nothing explicit, but...She’s at a graveside, y’all. Take it from there.)
Written for: [ profile] hawaii50_land
Characters/Pairings: Steve/Danny referenced, Grace
Word Count: 1,061
Notes: This piece was written for a [ profile] hawaii50_land challenge. This time around, we were given a character to focus on. That character was Grace. This is what hit me.
Also, this has not been beta’ed so if you see something wonky (something misspelled, a paragraph that makes no sense), please let me know. Con-crit is always welcome.

Grace remembers the good times )

Title: Not My Kind
Rating: PG
Content of Note: None
Pairing/Characters: Watari, Tsuzuki/Hisoka if you squint, OFC
Word Count: 1,074
Notes: Umm, first completed attempt at ‘fic for this fandom. I hope it’s not too bad. Comments to the author are like sweets to Tsuzuki – they should be consumed often and with gusto. Feed the author?

Watari observes. Hisoka fends off. And Tsuzuki...well... )

Notes:  Why "times two?"  Well, see, I started a short, 250 word piece.  Bumped right along until I had over 600 words and had to start pruning.  Then I thought "Why lose all of the rest?  It was actually pretty decent."  So, after submitting the 250 word cut, I polished the other and, viola!  Because I'm lazy and don't want to make two posts for it, here's both of them, the drabble first.

Content of Note:  Uhhhh, drunk Mushin?
Disclaimer:  I don't own any of these characters.  They belong to Rumiko Takahashi and anyone else she may have sold the rights to.  It's just fun to mess with them occasionally.
Notes:  Damn, I've been doing a lot of drabbles and shorts lately.  Here again is an entry in [ profile] iyfic_contest.  This one's theme was in vino veritas.  For those unsure, that translates to "in wine, truth."  This was my interpretation.  I didn't win anything with this one, but it was interesting to write.  I've never had a reason to use Mushin before.  This was  a nice change.


Ever wonder why Mushin drinks? Maybe he has good reason. )

Notes: So, yet another offering from the realms of [ profile] iyfic_contest.  I chose to go with Kohaku and the beginning of his involvement with Naraku.  Amazingly, it was well liked enough to warrant yet another third place banner.  Enjoy it yourself, and then go read the story, yeah?

Oh!  This could be considered a companion piece to Brother's Love, but only if you squint and tilt your head just right. ^_~

Notes:  This one was fun.  I don't often feel the need to write Sesshomaru, but it came out pretty good, if I do say so myself.

So, here you go.  Enjoy!


Her song would continue. Of that, he would make certain. )

Notes:  I can't believe that I forgot this one.  I really like it, too.  It's not often that I get to play with Sango...mainly because I have a hard time getting into her head.  Anyway, here's Brother's Love.

Disclaimer:  I neither own nor make any profit from the use of these characters.  They belong to Rumiko Takahashi and anyone else she may have legally sold the rights to.  Similarly, I do not own the song The Dance.  It is the intellectual property of Garth Brooks, his songwriters, and Capitol Records Nashville.
Notes:   I started this just after seeing the episodes Onigumo's Heart Still Beats within Naraku and Return to the Place Where We First Met for about the second or third time.  Honestly, I don't think I had seen past The Unstoppable Demon Within because that's where Adult Swim happened to stop the series at that point in time, and I wasn't doing more than skimming the manga.  As such, this little 'shot won't go past that point and there are no references to any of the current manga developments.  I won't say that they don't color this a little, just that they are never mentioned outright.
This little 'fic was dusted off and finished for Forthy's challenge.  This is about as close as I could come to an actual songfic.

Sometimes, it's worth the pain  )

This was originally posted in the usual places in August of 2004.  It had been a while since I had done anything resembling poetry then, and that hasn't changed much since.

Originally posted in March of 2005, Misconception was my attempt at getting a handle on the Sango/Miroku dynamic.  It was also the end result of needing to put a little fun back into my writing since AIWfC wasn't cooperating too well at that point.

The gang's all late and Sango's worried; so, she goes out looking for them.  She catches up to the houshi, who's listening in on something he probably shouldn't be.  Embarrassment, and a little pain, is had by all.

I said that I wasn't going to do this.  I said that, for me, it was a silly idea because I would never keep up with it and nobody would really be interested anyway.  Well, as you can see, I've done it anyway.  I needed something to kick my ass about writing, and I decided the best way to do it was to try and organize everything in one place.  Now, granted, I have accounts on and; but I've gotten a little tired of how arbitrary those sites have gotten lately.  I also don't like that the formatting I want on my stories goes to hell when I upload.

So.  Since I am website design illierate and, quite frankly, don't have the time or inclinition to learn, I figured here was as good a place as any to put stuff.  So, that's it; and here we go.

In honor of its one year anniversary and to get this writing journal started, I give you Iris.

ETA:  I realized when I got home that I hadn't really given anyone any idea what this story was about, so I figure on doing it now.  This one is I guess what you would call an introspective vignette.  Told in Inuyasha's POV,  it's his thoughts on his friends and their situation while watching Kagome sleep.  It was just my little attempt to show that there is more going on between those cute little ears than the "fight," food," "Jewel shards," and "Huh?" characterizations that seem so rampant in the fandom.
