FANFICTION STATUS=

What Must Be: incomplete @ chapter seven
At the end of everything, Guts is 'killed' by Femto, but the swordsman then unexpectedly awakens among his companions from the Band of the Hawk. He wishes that his memories of the Godhand were a dream, but the Brand of Sacrifice remains. This is turning into an epic of at least forty chapters, if not more, so hold on for the ride!
Flawed: incomplete @ chapter six
Yuu Yuu Hakusho x Harry Potter crossover. Not-so-original premise with a very original plot. Yuusuke is targeted by Voldemort as a way for the Dark Lord to increase his own power. Horrifically vulnerable to magic, against which his demonic powers are no defense, Yuusuke is sent undercover to the safest place on Earth... Hogwarts! As a demonic teacher in a school fool of wizards, Yuusuke must walk a tightrope between fulfilling his mission and keeping his heritage a secret from the prejudiced society in which he finds himself trapped.
Mission X: incomplete @ chapter twenty-five
Yuu Yuu Hakusho x X-men Evolution crossover. Yuusuke, Hiei and Kurama are sent undercover to the Institute in order to track down a demon who has been amassing a following of mutants to launch an attack on the human world. Between tracking down leads, keeping the knowledge of their demonic blood a secret, and doing schoolwork, this might just be the most complicated mission they have been assigned yet!
Immortality: one-shot, complete
Yuu Yuu Hakusho. A short piece about Toushin Yuusuke and the cost that comes hand-in-hand with immortality. A little sappy, a little angsty... my first attempt at that kind of writing, but people seemed to like it.
Monster: one-shot, complete
Yuu Yuu Hakusho. “She thinks that the shadows can hide her, hide the marks of tears upon her face and the way her shoulders tremble, but darkness hides nothing from him now.” Toushin Yuusuke fic.
Light: one-shot, complete
Yuu Yuu Hakusho. “It’s past midnight when he comes through the door. The apartment is dark and still, heavy rain thrumming outside.” Fluffy. Toushin Yuusuke fic.

=HONORABLE MENTIONS=

The stories that I put here are my ultimate favorites of all time. I would put them all under my fanfiction.netfavorites, but some are too... controversial... for fanfiction.net. Put on you big-kid undies, people, because these stories are fantastic, involving, original... and may contain graphic scenes of violence and/or sex, though that is not what they center around. Most of the time.

Here there be plot.

The Arrangement by Maldoror
Warnings: graphic sex, graphic violence, angst, and lots of delving into the psyche's of war-scarred pilots.
Why I like it: Fantastic writing style, characters in character, a plausible plot for a 1x5 relationship, post-war, Preventers, and (most importantly, to me) it isn't all "Fluff and bunnies, oh, the pilots will all grow up into normal, adjusted adults despite the $h!t they went through in the war. La dee da..." This isn't a 'romance', people.It's not really 'dark', but doesn't pull any punches, either. You have been warned.
Plot: Wufei, struggling with his demons, agrees to a wartime fling with Heero, no affection needed or wanted. But the 'arrangement' lasts and grows as they join the preventers. It could become a source of strength for both... if they let it.

Tales From the House of the Moon by Resmiranda
Warnings: Sex (but only if you visit the site listed on the author's bio), violence, character death (mentioned by other characters), and occasional angst.
Why I like it: Mostly lighthearted, HotM has the power to make me laugh, cry, and everything in between. Like most of my favorites, it is epic in size and has wonderful grammar and writing style. Resmiranda has a true gift. Read it now.
Plot: Kagome, now in college, discovers the tale of Sesshomaru and Rin. Grief can be a prison, but the bonds of love are not easily broken. What is the truth behind fairytales?
