Anxiety is one of Kashima’s oldest bedfellows. If it doesn’t rile him up while he’s awake, it creeps into his dreams; if it can’t creep into his dreams, it seeps into his waking life until he’s seeing blank-faced reflections in the glass of every shop he passes on the street. He has his ways around it—drinks and idle company, his favorite diners and bars—and now he has Toyohi. The newness of what they have makes his hands shake with familiar fear.
Kashima knows how to live with anxiety. Kashima doesn’t know how to live with love.
Toyohi is used to his casual flings. Hobbies, jobs, relationships, vacations in tourist traps across the globe—they never last long, not for the guy who can’t seem to settle down into the one role he wants to play in the world. He’s not even sure what that role is, drifting from one idea or place to the next like a dandelion seed on the wind. But that’s before he meets Kashima. That’s before he decides he wants to make it work this time.
Toyohi knows how to live with his flighty attention span. Toyohi doesn’t know how to live with love.
Or: Kashima and Toyohi explore themselves, each other, and their relationship over the next year.
Several young men, two different universes, and a happy ending.
- Part 5 of metempsychosis
The life he prepared for is gone; in its place is a Japan he doesn't remember and a love he can't find. But Yuuki is out there somewhere, waiting for him, and Akira intends to keep his promises. No matter how long it takes or how many obstacles stand in his way, they will find each other again.
Akira is sure of it.
- Part 4 of metempsychosis
After losing Prim, Shinya thought he was okay with change and with loss.
Turns out that wasn't true. There were bigger things for him to lose, like his best and only friend. Falling in love wasn't what Shinya planned to do, but here he was: in love, and wishing to any god that would listen to make it stop.
Shinya wasn't ready for change. Not yet. Not ever. But the world turned whether he wanted it to or not, and once change struck all he could do was deal with the aftermath.
A direct continuation of xest.
- Part 3 of metempsychosis
Akira Kurusu leads the Ark of Destiny's best survey team. The people of Filgaia struggle to survive, but the Ark will steer them toward prosperity--or so it's told. Akira has yet to see the fruit of his labors put food on anyone's table, and the planet withers and dies a bit more with each passing day.
Then he stumbles upon a secret garden, kept by an even more secretive boy, and the gears of fate begin to turn.
