    Summary

    “I don’t know how to do this,” Neil whispers.

    The admission cracks something inside him and he has to look up and away. His eyes burn.

    “Seventy percent,” he says. “Seventy percent of the time I let them take you through that door I never see you again. I don’t know—”

    The words choke in his throat like thorns. He meets Andrew’s gaze like a drowning man seeking the sun. “How do I deal with never seeing you again?”

    Summary

    If there is one thing peculiar about Kibutsuji Muzan, it would probably be his fear of fire, Nakime is sure.

    She doesn’t understand until one day she sees him stray too close to a fire while in disguise in human company. The fire reaches out as if it has hands, roaring as it wraps around Kibutsuji’s foot. The fire wants to pull him in, wants to drag him into the embers and burn him forevermore as he regenerates, unable to die. Nakime can feel it in her bones. The fire wants him to pay for ripping all those families apart. It is fat with prayers, full of the power of his believers.

    It frightens her, this fevor, as Kibutsuji cuts off his own leg and scrambles away from the roaring flames as the humans around him scream at the sight.

    Nakime shivers.

    Muzan is afraid of fire. There is a reason for that.


    Tanjiro is a god and the Demon Slayer Corps prays.

    Inspiring work with a almost poetic format, made me run around my room thinking of more encounters.

    Summary

    Ryou, a relentlessly repressed and controlled accountant, accidentally slips between dimensions. Since he's a practical, cautious man and not a complete idiot, he retraces his steps and slips right back out again. But he's not alone. And now his life is going to take a sharp turn away from "repressed" and "controlled", to very strange places indeed: into a warped image of the past and into a very uncertain future, through war and violence, to the very edges of reality and beyond.

    The characterization Ryou in the first chapter alone is so vivid that it sucks you into this world and the life he has to live. Then you pair that with a unique world filled with all kinds of historical tidbits and realism but also kinda high fantasy PLUS it has a interesting romance???!! Truly a joy to read. I would love a hard copy.

    In which Dex has house magic, Haus has Haus magic, and at least one of them is in love with Nursey.

    One of those stories you read and feel all fuzzy and warm and smiley, the best kind of love story.

    Summary

    There was only one option. The idea made his heart lurch, but he swallowed down his fear, picturing his mother’s face. She would have beat him harshly for even the second of hesitation he allowed himself. 'Don’t get caught. You can’t afford to be afraid. There are far worse things than pain.'

    He pressed the blade to his throat.

    Death is really the least of Neil's worries, especially as the Foxes finally give him something to live for.
