Description:

A retelling of the Persian epic poem, the Haft Paikar, which I am in love with.

Features an overarching storyline of Karurusu's adventures as he becomes King of Honyala and what happens after. Also features a dazzling array of stories told by his fantastic advisors. Romance, daring, adventure, drama, political machinations, fantasy, magic. It's all there, folks.

Notes:

So it goes like this:

Spring of 2018, I watched Boueibu Love and then Happy Kiss as it came out.

Summer of 2018, I was in a civilisation course and the story of Turandot was mentioned. I was in FULL ON KinAtsu hell at that point, so naturally, I decided to write a fic. However, I wanted to know where the story had originated, which led me to the Haft Paikar. Which I read, and then loved, and then, naturally, decided to adapt the entire thing into a giant Boueibu epic.

Mostly, I just wanted a KinAtsu Turandot. So here we are. :)
