Gods of Opportunity: Chapter 4
A NORAGAMI FANFICTION
Rated: T (canon-typical monsters and violence, foul language, later adult content)
Pairings: Yato/Hiyori, Rabou/OC, Other Side Ships

Summary: The Stray woke Rabou up from five hundred years of non-existence. He and Yato fought. Rabou lost. That should’ve been the end of it. And yet here he is, with a second chance he didn’t ask for. Somehow, he woke up again. Adrift in a strange new era, Rabou searches for answers and for a new path to walk. Can he move on from his past and forge a new future? Not even the gods know the answer to that.
FOURTH CHAPTER: FEAR NOT
Hiyori was a little concerned as she walked towards Kofuku's shop the next day. The incident with Rabou had been… strange, to say the least. And Yato's behavior had been so odd. First, he'd dragged Rabou out of the shop, claiming that they needed to talk about something— whatever it was, it had something to do with Rabou's apparent reincarnation. And the

GETTING IT RIGHT: UNO/ROCK
GETTING IT RIGHT
A NANBAKA FANFICTION
FLUFF/ROMANCE/FRIENDSHIP, UNO/ROCK
SUMMARY: Love is a little bit intimidating and a little bit scary, but Rock is pretty sure he can handle it. Or at least, he thinks so. He can probably handle it. Maybe. He's got this. Right?

Rock had never braided anything, ever. He knew how it worked, but he'd sure as hell never braided anyone else's hair for them. But Uno had asked him to and saying no would've required more willpower than Rock had ever had in his entire life. Rock was a simple man with simple weaknesses, and it'd turned out somehow that his greatest weakness was a British gambler named Uno.
The whole thing was still so damn new and amazing (and also slightly terrifying). How was he supposed to figure out hair braiding when he was still reeling from the fact that his feelings weren't one-sided? He hadn't really expected Uno to take his confession so well, and in fact he hadn't really planned on confessing his feelings at all. But one thi

THIRD CHAPTER: SLAIN BY DISREGARD
This was sure as hell going to be awkward, and weird, and just overall uncomfortable. Killing Rabou would've been so much easier, really. But Yato had one big problem with that idea, so he'd opted to saddle himself with inconvenience instead.
Rabou sat up slowly and pushed the remains of the ropes away, his eyes on Yato the whole time. "You'll tell me what

CHAPTER FOUR—AQILA
A slender woman with hawk-like features stepped forward. She looked to be in her forties or fifties, perhaps, and moved with an unmistakable air of strength and authority. She had a smooth, stalking gait like a tigerdillo. But when she spoke, her voice was surprisingly soft and lilting.
"Zafirah and Basam of the Janan Tribe," she remarked. "It certainly has been a while, hasn't it?" She then lifted her hands to them and proclaimed, "We welcome you, friends born of our sister tribe. May you find peace and shelter within our caravan."
Kuei recognized the intonation of ritual speech. He'd heard it often enough in the Royal Court. Bosco huddled behind him as he watched the scene unfolding before him; the bear whined quietly and Kuei anxiously thought of the gash on his pet's shoulder. Zafirah and Basam echoed the movement and bowed their heads a

SECOND CHAPTER: ALIVE AGAIN
"Come! Sekki!" Yato snapped; he didn't take his eyes off of Rabou for even one second as Sekki flew to his waiting hand. He clutched the cloth-wrapped grip of the blade, pointing the business end of it right at Rabou.
"You are Yatogami, are you not?" Rabou asked, his tone oddly urgent.
Yato snorted. "Not this bullshit again. Don't tell me you're gonna go off on a

FIRST CHAPTER: A LIGHT IN THE FOG
Four months ago
The shrine of the former god of calamity Rabou stood in silence again, as it had for five hundred years. A fierce battle had raged there, hours earlier, but it was all over now—the victors had left, as had the stray shinki who had temporarily served a new master. The massive tree that had once dominated the heart of th

CHAPTER 3— THE SPIRITS' FURNACE
The sun had set beyond the sand dunes in the west. The remaining fiery glow reminded Kuei uncomfortably of the battle that had ravaged the Oasis, but he ignored that thought; he needed to be focused and alert for the task ahead. The fading rays of sunlight silhouetted the sand sailer that was waiting to depart as Kuei approached it.
The two Sandbenders were already aboard; they stood on the navigator's platform and looked out across the desert with their backs to him, dusky shapes against the orange sunset. Zafirah swept an arm out in a graceful arc to point out something in the distance, and Basam nodded in agreement to whatever words passed between them.
As Kuei reached them with Bosco at his side, the Sandbenders turned to face him. Zafirah hopped down from the platform, landing easily on the soft sand, and strode over to hi

CHAPTER 2- THE DESERT OF THE DEAD
The sun was rising over the Si Wong Desert. The fight had ended hours ago—it hadn't lasted very long. Not that it would, with such unbalanced numbers. The Fire Nation had never really held with the idea of a fair fight.
Those that survived knelt in the middle of the oasis with their wrists bound behind their backs; a wall of Fire Nation soldiers surrounded them, armored shoulder to armored shoulder, a ring of identical skull faces.
Their commander was the only one with his face exposed—he probably wanted them to see the smug grin on his face as he surveyed his prisoners. He paced back and forth in front of the captives, in between them and the ring of soldiers. The commander had decided after the battle that the Sandbenders needed a lesson in respect for the element of Fire, so he'd had his men sit them down for a while.

CHAPTER ONE- THE KING IN EXILE
One week after the fall of Ba Sing Se
It had seemed like such a simple idea at the time. Strike out on his own, travel the world in disguise, see what life was like outside the palace walls. No Dai Li watching his every move, no Long Feng whispering poisonous lies in his ear and keeping him distracted from reality with frivolities—just Kuei and Bosco, off on a marvelous adventure, learning all he'd ever wanted to know about life outside Ba Sing Se's walls.
But he hadn't realized that life with no limits would be so… complicated. He hadn't taken any money with him, for one thing. He hadn't brought any supplies, either; he'd tried with some limited success to teach himself hunting and fishing, but neither he nor Bosco could quite get the hang of it. Luckily, he'd managed to sell a few of the larger f

PROLOGUE: PREMONITION
She could feel the eyes again—unseen but their gaze was heavy on her nonetheless. A cold, needling stare burrowed into her back and seeped into her skin. Noriko shivered as she climbed out of her tiny Nissan, drawing her dark purple jacket tighter around her shoulders. She hurriedly dug her messenger bag out from the jumbled contents of her car's backseat, hit th

Nanbaka: Fancy Trash Boy

*slaps this down onto a metaphorical desk* DONE! All I wanted to do was draw Qi wearing the 12th century Chinese smokey quartz sunglasses from this tumblr post and it just spiraled out of control entirely ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I keep staring at this and wondering “Did I fuck up the shoulder proportions???” but I can’t decide either way so. here.

The background is a panel from the manga that I just mirrored two and 1/4 times, lmaooooo. I was going to erase that little Samon silhouette, but then I had a better idea. Click for a ~*~Bonus Comic~*~

So, I will soon be fulfilling two longstanding dreams of mine! The first one, to complete a cosplay. And the second one... to go to a fan convention!

Today I registered for Anime Expo '14!! :la: I'm soooo exciteeeeeeed!

And I'm gonna be going in costume! I'm gonna cosplay as... this dude! :iconportgasdaceplz: Yeah, yep. Been watching One Piece and I'm now a huge Ace fangirl. :XD: I already had a hat that looks like Ace's hat, so I figured, why the hell not?

OMG I'm so full of energy and excitement!

In fanfic news: Chapter 26 of Cause Some Trouble is still in the works, and I'm trying to communicate with my new beta about rewriting To Fight Without Fear. Both fics are poking slowly along but they'll get there.
