Author's Notes: This was written as part of the 1sentence challenge at the LiveJournal community "1sentence". An author applies to claim a pairing (in my case, Hiei/Kurama from "Yu Yu Hakusho" and in turn they are given 5 theme sets to choose from ("Alpha" - "Epsilon"), each theme set with 50 one-word themes which the author uses to write one sentence per theme. It's quite fun, really, and I hope you enjoy it.
Other Story News: Alright, now if any of my regular readers are here, this is for you. I know the question on everyone's mind is "WTF is the next Majikku no Seirei chapter? Where? WHERE?" And the answer? It WAS about eight pages long, comfortably sitting on my hard drive and waiting for me to complete it. But alas, the Great Computer Monster came and ate my files, and I lost a lot of stuff, especially stuff I didn't have backed up/saved in multiple spaces. So I'm piecing it back together, but it'll take a little while. Please please please be patient. I will try--keyword here is try--to have chapter 14 up for you guys before Halloween. Again, I'm sorry for the wait and for anyone who's still loyally checking every day to see if there's been an update--I love you.
If anyone's interested in original fiction, poetry, or lyrics that I've written, please feel free to check out my fiction journal, http/pen-strokes. . Comments are always appreciated there, as well as, of course, here.
So, that being said, I hope you all enjoy the fic.
