A/N: 合縁奇縁 aienkien -- "Uncannily good relationship made by fate from an unlikely joining of people." The title is from a Japanese "yojijukugo", just as the titles from the anime are. I just wanted to use the literal translation for the title as it actually, oddly enough, fits the piece better. This takes place after the end of the series. Yes... this is not a historically accurate piece.
This was quick-read by mysocalledhell, beta'ed by 2metaldog, and omega'ed by gogoangelgunboy. I'll admit that there's now stuff in this that none of the three have seen, so all the mistakes are my own.
This was also a kiriban for 10,000 hits on Y!Gallery for hartofthewud. Her prompts were: Floating Shrine, pearl netsuke, practicing katas, and a secret desire. It would be nice to have both Jin and Mugen, but if you want just one main chara, then Jin plz. and NC-17 or R, whichever seems best.
