How might things have gone if Saitou, rather than Kenshin, had beaten some sense into kenkaya Zanza and become his guiding force? Part 1 in progress: The revolution in Zanza’s life leads him to join with government spies Saitou and Tokio to try to bring down the yakuza controlled by a corrupt politician. A tale of self-examination, love triangles, hidden feelings, intrigue, and death.

They also can’t know what the spiritual consequences may be of following Light into the darkness.
An undercover mission in a hot springs town brings danger, entertainment, espionage, violence, delirium, and a stunning realization. It’s a test of the medical prowess of one, the hearts of two or three, and the combative abilities of most.
A modern-day American cop isn’t sure what this unnervingly familiar vampire wants from him, until Sano reveals the tragic events of a past life and his undying connection with a Meiji-era Japanese cop.

Though the circus has settled in for its winter break, Trowa Barton (acrobat, animal-handler, and werebeast beta) still has his hands full — with a newly acquired lion he’s sure is more than it appears, the return of former romantic partner and current alpha-friend-with-benefits Heero, and tiny niece Relena growing up much too fast.

The ambiguous comfort two confused soldiers can offer each other may be precisely enough.
Kenshin and Sano were lovers before Saitou showed up… but Kenshin and Saitou liked each other long before that. One thing’s for certain, at least: Saitou and Sano hate each other. Right?
Having been slaves for most of their lives, they know that love is both a luxury and a weakness they can’t afford; with Sano obsessing over a guard and Katsu enchanted by a newly-arrived fellow slave, however, they may not be able to help themselves. But something bigger than that is going on around them, and their growing feelings may be the least of their problems.
