    Summary

    Desire. Fear. Regret.

    The peaceful and spiritually minded Tribe of Seppun has dwelt upon their eponymous hill for as long as memory holds. Unknown to them, events far above in Tengoku will soon come to pass that will reshape they and their often dangerous neighbors into the first samurai and lead to the foundation of the Empire.

    As these tumultuous and oft recounted events come to pass, a young scholar vanishes from his home in the midst of the chaos. He will one day come to bring Rokugan, and reality itself to his knees. This is his wife's story, of how she followed him to the Lying Darkness. As the old world dies in the birth pangs of a new Empire, a tragedy unfolds.

    Special thanks to my friend Varenthian, both for creating Kumori, and writing her side of the story in the original pbp.

    No idea what is going on with that kudo count... I'm going to write support, or re-upload this.

    Summary

    Born an Asahina Crane and trained as a Phoenix shugenja from a young age as a result of her rare gift of Void, Kagami’s place in Rokugani society is challenging to define. She is a potential asset to both her family and her school - but one that comes with the significant flaw of split loyalties.

    Kagami is well aware of her problematic status. Not quite Crane, not quite Phoenix, she doesn’t fit anywhere. Add in the damage done to her by her exposure to the Void as a child, and - with one or two exceptions - she is more comfortable spending her time with the kami than with samurai from either clan.

    Then she is summoned to Chisana Basho Shu, a formerly Phoenix province with an uncertain future, as the Great Clans of Rokugan manoeuvre for position to see who can gain the Emperor’s favour and be granted control of the province. The seemingly peaceful land holds many secrets, and Kagami, with her cousin Jiromasu at her side, has been sent into the middle of it all. Tasked with supporting her Clan’s presence in the region, Kagami must navigate the dangerous waters of Rokugani politics, Shadowlands threats, and the tensions created by competing matters of honour and obligation.

    Summary

    A young Soshi courtier is married into the Matsu family and has a less than pleasant new life with his domineering and abusive wife. When she departs for a typical summer skirmish with the Unicorn, the now Matsu Todo is excited for the reprieve and plans to use this as an opportunity get a well needed break from the stress of his marriage. However, as time goes on it becomes apparent his wife has gone missing in action, and dreading the rule of a Lion household even more, he sets out with a Kaeru yojimbo in her employ to find out what exactly happened. However a simple search for remains leads the pair down a much larger rabbit hole than anyone could ever have expected, and the domestic strife of a single samurai couple soon becomes a secondary concern.

Twelve years ago, Bayushi Jun hired a sharp eyed geisha to aide in his surveillance of the winter court.

    Summary


    “Is this what you really want?”
    She shouldn’t have asked the question. Umaki remembered the lessons she had been taught. A commander didn’t ask for the opinions of a soldier. One soldier’s life wasn’t worth more than another’s. But Umaki asked the question.
    Whatever honor this duel might bring them, it wasn’t worth the life it might cost them.
    Ahi’s smile was sad and slow. “Yes, Umaki.”

    A 30 year duel comes to a conclusion.

    Summary


    “You have to believe the truth.” Umaki retorted and this time, her mother did laugh, her shoulders easing.

    “People believe the truth they want to see, my love.” She poured two glasses of tea into rough cut stone cups, setting the iron tea pot to the side. “But that does not make their truth what is real and neither does that give credentials to your own.”

    “Then what is true?”

    “My love for you.”

    Umaki and her mom have a talk about the future possibilities of her training and where she could go.

    Summary

    “What you got there?” Asked Khulan.

    “Just composing a letter to Sensei.” I said putting away my ink.

    “‘Just sending a personal message to a war hero. No big deal.’” She said in a mocking but friendly tone. “You’re gonna lead an amazing life kid.”

    “Is it too much to ask for a simple boring life from now on?” I asked.

    “I don’t have some kind of close connection to ancestors or spirits or anything like that.” Said Khulan. “But I just get this feeling that your destiny is bigger than this little town.”

    Summary

    What happened on the road to Otosan Uchi? Riding on horseback together for days on end is more stimulating and boring than Bayushi Makoto can stand, so he finds a way to make it more....interesting. Shameless fluff and smut.
