I own absolutely nothing. RG Veda and all its characters belong to CLAMP.

This fanfic is a collection of drabbles relating to the relationship between Ryuu and Ashura. Before we begin though, there are a few things I would like to say.

The main pairing in these stories will be Ryuu/Ashura. There may be references to Yasha/Ashura and some other pairings, but the main one will be Ryuu/Ashura. And not all of them will be romance. There will be some brother/sister, or friendship fics.

Ashura will be a girl for all the fics. I see Ashura as more female than male when I read RG Veda and I also want to be able to use pronouns.

There will be some stories written in alternate realities. The ones that are will be labeled in the table of contents below. The ratings of the stories will also be written below the title of the story.

Reviews and comments are appreciated, especially if they're signed. If you try to send me a question without a signature, I won't be able to answer it.

Other than that, enjoy the fic!
