The challenge was to write a three sentence drabble based on the first character someone named. I got Keiichi. Posting it just because. It's actually inspired me to write something longer, which may or may not actually happen.

Buried in snow, Hinamizawa is clean; a blank slate where the sins of the past could be left behind in preparation for the bright future. The higurashi cried no more - June seems so very long ago, and Keiichi can barely remember the faces of the men who had come for his friend, or the way they'd felt as they battled destiny and won - but none of that matters. All that matters is this snowball fight; all that matters is avoiding the punishment game and making Mion or Rena or Shion run a lap around the frozen school in their underwear; all that matters is seeing his friends smile.
