It's the 22nd already? Yikes! I'm even more alarmed by the fact that no one seems to have posted anything on the 21st. I feel very awkward right now.
When I first signed up for this, my love for this pairing knew no bounds. I bored Penelope for hours talking about them, wrote on and on about Oriya (who is my favourite character), and even tried to convince my brother that their love was so eternal (or not). Sadly, my brother was fed up with my slash obsessions and told me to shut up. But when I started writing it, I realized I couldn't put much into words.
So, I'm afraid that this is a lousy essay. Please bear with me as I try to put things in order here. Please, accept my apologies for everything that's dreadful in it. Probably everything, that is. Also, these are my personal views on the pairing. I know I say it below, but one can't say that enough.
Title: A modern samurai romance
Spoilers: oh, yes! For the Kyoto arc.
