    Summary

    The story of Banana Fish retold (more or less competently) through the lens of two lost souls on their journey from Cape Cod, New England to Los Angeles, California. Aslan Jade Callenrease, a self-established vigilante with a thirst for freedom, catches a ride on Interstate 80 as a result of some...extenuating circumstances. One of those circumstances being Okumura Eiji, a freelance photographer, old enough to break away from his status quo and young enough to try.
    When two separate worlds collide, one can only hope their journey is homeward bound.
    After all, home is where the heart is.

    “I need someone to help me get to California.”
    Ash raises his eyebrows. “Let me get this straight. You need me to be your American guide. To help you take a road trip across the fucking country. And this is all because, what, I’m not safe in my home town?”
    “I can’t read English signs fast enough,” Eiji explains, unconvincingly. After a few more seconds of expectant silence, he adds, “I think I drove on the left side of the road the whole way here from New Jersey.”
    “Eiji,” Ash says his name in that beguiling American accent, the corner of his mouth turning up. “You’re fucking insane.”

    Summary

    Monsters under the bed have been a common staple in the imaginations of children throughout history.

    But most monsters are stuck in the stereotype their ancestors and malevolent creatures have made for themselves. Most monsters just want a place to stay and feel comfortable. That means closets and under beds. Sadly, it's for the best human children still believe. Parents don't usually check. And, if they do, the monsters can hide themselves.

    What happens when it's not a parent, but a little boy, that checks under his bed frame with very little to no warning?

    Summary

    Shouta shouldn't say anything. He should just walk away. He couldn't though, not after what she'd said.

    “One day, that kid will be counted amongst the greatest heroes of his generation. One day you’ll look back at how you treated him now, and you will realize how wrong you were.”

     

    This is the story of how Shinsou Hitoshi became a hero.

    Summary

    “Alright. But you stay safe okay? I mean-” Eiji immediately regretted his reflexive reply to a goodbye. This wasn’t just your ordinary stranger, this was probably a powerful wizard for crying out loud.
     
    But instead of an awkward laugh, the wizard settled with a gentle smile, the kind that reached his eyes and made the mystifying jade more brilliant than ever.
     
    “Thanks. You stay safe too,” and with that, the wizard hopped off the balcony and vanished into the crowd below.

    ---

    In which Eiji gets cursed into a ghost, the kingdom wages war on its neighbours, and the devil wizard Ash Lynx roams the wastelands while striking fear into the strongest of hearts.

    But of course, fate would see the seemingly heartless wizard fall in love with a heart that had so much to give.
