Rating: T
Characters/pairings: Reishin, Shouka, Shuurei, Ko Kijin

For: hisoka44
Request: Shuurei finding out about Reishin's relation to her and Reishin's reaction to that; bonus points for commentary from Shouka, Kijin, or other related characters.

Note: the requester didn't say she disliked slash, so there are some minor overtones - nothing that important.

The "hour of the dog" is 7-9pm.

Reishin woke to the dark ceiling of an unfamiliar room. )

Gauntlet Theme: 24 - promises almost kept
Prompt: young!Reishin, a moment that determined his decision to take Kouyuu in

Notes: Gaiden #3 actually addresses why Reishin decided to save Kouyuu, so this is an extrapolation on that confession, which went something like, "his eyes watched the distance as if waiting for someone, just like mine used to when I waited for Shouka to come home." The title comes from an Utena chorus that has nothing to do with this topic at all.

Winter never truly touched Kou Province, except when Shouka was gone. )

+ Prelude: A Kinder Season

Notes: Spoilers up to book 14, but I ignore some of the stuff that happened, or at least don't acknowledge it - maybe that makes this slightly AU. We're pretending the stuff at the very end didn't happen.

There were few things Reishin loathed as much as clan meetings. )

I abuse geography with impunity, and I owe the name Menekhet to Jacqueline Carey.
