    Summary

    In Chinese, there is a saying that a girl grows up, she undergoes eighteen transformations, expressing the vast differences between the child she was and the woman she becomes, and all the steps along the way.

    In a dangerous and chaotic era, almost her entire family slain, Ma Yunlu has barely begun these changes when her brother, fearing what would happen if he died, arranges her marriage to a comrade. The famous Little Dragon, twenty years her senior, whom she has never even met…

    This is a prequel to my epic work Clouds and Rain, and is rated M for frank discussion of disturbing historical subjects. There are no explicit sex scenes but there is a "fade to black".

    Ma Yunlu was an OC from an early 20th century newspaper serial whose author created an OC to marry his fave; wow, I can't believe Three Kingdoms fandom invented canon x oc fix-it fanfic. I could not resist borrowing her name, although my story bears no other relation to her origin.

    Summary

    Si sentiva a disagio perché era dovuto scendere troppo presto a patti con la realtà dopo solo un mese in cui sperava di riuscire a far ripartire la propria vita in modo del tutto indipendente; pagare un affitto, continuare a studiare e allo stesso tempo allenarsi per rendere la sua passione per il ciclismo qualcosa di cui vivere non solo erano cose difficili da conciliare: erano ormai diventate uno stile di vita che lo aveva portato verso un vicolo cieco.

    Summary

    C'erano giornate in cui si sentiva in balia di Shan, della sua convinzione nel ridare lustro al club che aveva portato fama alla scuola, persino del suo essere accomodante davanti a pareri contrastanti; c'erano dei momenti in cui avrebbe soltanto desiderato stringerlo a sé e toccarlo, quasi come ad assicurarsi che fosse reale con il suo corpo snello e pallido. Poi venivano i sensi di colpa, presto dimenticati quando l'altro lo guardava di nuovo come se si aspettasse qualcosa da lui e rideva ad una delle sue sciocche battute, facendogli battere il cuore come mai prima.

    Summary

    A prose retelling of the rise and fall of Orochi, otherwise known as the entirety of the video game Warriors Orochi 1. It fleshes out the complicated and dramatic story of the melding of the Three Kingdoms and Sengoku Era, delves deeper into the effect their situation has on the characters, and throws in a little slash just because (okay, a LOT of slash) . Battles have been mostly compressed in order to focus on the in-between scenes instead, and character relationships are explored. PCs from later franchises have been added.

    NOTE: I discovered after a year that Chapter 29 was missing at least half of its content. A major scene of plot as well as some fluff had been omitted. It is now reposted in complete form.

    Summary

    It has been three months since Ma Chao has been recruited by Zhuge Liang into Shu and he cannot help the inner conflict between what is justified and what feels right when a young Cao haunts his thoughts. “I tried to hate her because of what her father was, because she was the spawn of a murderer. Perhaps it is because she was never my enemy.”

    Summary

    Not all wounds heal. In lieu of they will always be scars, marks to carry in quiet desolation. The weight of a burden that rests in the shadow of pain and death.
