Pairing: Himawari/husband, slight Watanuki/Himawari, implied Doumeki/Watanuki
Other: n/a

Excerpt: "I love you," she tells him, because it's true. She doesn't tell him that she's going away, and he doesn't ask. He doesn't ask why she hasn't answered her phone, either. He simply says it back, and lets her go when she says she has to catch her bus. He is too full of grief already to mourn her and Yuuko both, and she'd rather he miss Yuuko more. It's safer.

Fandom: xxxHOLiC

Pairing: implied fem!Doumeki/fem!Watanuki
Other: AU as per prompt: Doumeki and Watanuki have always been female. I used first names because they sounded more feminine. This is a retelling of the hydrangea bush story in volume 5. Thanks for helping the South, Melissa!

Pairing: Clow/Yuuko

He lit the incense stick and pressed it into the ground, and then, after a long moment, kneeled, not caring about the cold. His robes rustled, silk against dead grass, but he didn't speak. He just looked, for a long moment, at the butterfly very carefully etched into the marker.

Other: MKR written as if it were xH. Clef makes a weird Yuuko.
