Series are multiple stories that go together; the order they are listed in on the tables of contents and directory pages are their chronological orders within the universe, not the order they were written or posted in. A tilde (~) denotes an original fiction series, while an abbreviation such as HP denotes a fanfiction series.

The patter of feet that move like lightning on this floor and across these shelves.

The glints of blades in the candlelight, fireworks of muted celebration.

The light scent of blood, hanging on the air like an evil spirit that haunts this room and these two hearts.

The sigh in the air with a blade that passes close – a reverse blade, but a weapon still.

Pain old and new, physical and not, treasured and savored and nursed until it blossoms into something far greater.

The title hanging in the air, the reason you gave me to live. The only thing between me and the release of death.

The setting for the most intimate act ever performed.

What do you say, Battousai? Shall we dance?
