Fanfic: Combined Edge Strange Edge

Fandom: Samurai Champloo
Characters: Jin and Mugen
Rating: R -- for very explicit sword violence, bad language, and a kiss.
Word Count: 5,996
Summary: Jin visits a shrine to pray for the dead while stopping in town to reforge his sword.
Disclaimer: I do not own nor make money off of Samurai Champloo
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.

In the cool of the pre-dawn...Collapse )
