real person fic
television & movies
odds & ends
- Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Fanfiction Recs - There's not a lot of Harutoki fic out there, even with the anime having aired awhile back. (Not that I can blame people, the anime had terrible pacing and was so slow that even I nearly fell asleep trying to watch it.) But I'm determined to eventually find some or maybe con a few friends into writing fic for me! This section, I hope, will be geared towards Tomomasa/Takamichi, but I am also more than happy to read on any Tenma/Akane fics or genfic that may come around.
- Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Fanart - Tomomasa x Takamichi - This pairing started with a vibe in the OAV that made me raise an eyebrow, then grew the more and more I talked to friends about the series, then grew even more as I started to browse the fandom and hunt for fanart and got to know the characters better. For a long while, I was madly in love with the pairing, it was right inside my wheelhouse, and I scoured every fanart site I could find. While I have since branched out, I still have a tendency to OTP these two and suspect this will always be the most comprehensive section on the site. This section also includes Hisui x Yukitaka and would include Kagetoki x Yuzuru, except that pairing doesn't seem to have a following much. (Note: Sadly, a lot of sites on this page have probably been taken down because I've been running this page for so long now, so beware of broken links!)
- Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Fanart - Yasuaki x Eisen - Yasuaki x Eisen is probably, oddly enough, my second favorite yaoi pairing for the series, because... I'm not sure. Maybe it's that I have a thing for quiet, elegant, no-need-for-words couples, but I've had almost as many flashes of imagery or plot bunnies invade my head as I have for Tomomasa/Takamichi. They don't seem to get as much exposure as some of the other pairings, but I like them enough to give them their own page anyway.
- Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Fanart - Tenma x Akane - The longer I'm a fan of Harutoki, the more I come to genuinely support this pairing over any others for either of them. Tenma just loves her so very much and I'm very partial to Tenma, as well as this type of pairing. There's not an absolute ton of art for the pairing, they actually seem a bit more popular in the second and third games. (Or the basic couple, anyway.) I just. I love the hotheaded one and the sweet girl, I cut my manga teeth on shoujo a lot, okay? So, this will be one of the bigger sections, because I include Katsuzane x Karin and Kurou x Nozomi, which have gotten some really stunning art over time. ♥
- Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Fanart - Yorihisa x Tenma - Yorihisa x Tenma doesn't get as much fanart as I'd like, but every once in awhile.... There were enough moments in the OAV to make me raise an eyebrow and I've always liked pairings that are... antagonistic but would actually support each other in a heartbeat if they needed to. I sometimes have the worst time not comparing these two to Yuki and Kyou from Fruits Basket (except minus the genuine hatred), but that's more because that's the way the typical love triangle plays out rather than because they're actually like the characters. (Ignoring that Tenma looks like Kyou's long lost twin, their personalities aren't really that similar at all.) And yet... something tugs at me with these two. I also don't mind Yoritada x Katsuzane or especially Masaomi x Kurou, but mostly those are art things. I'm easy for the art.
- Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Fanart - Other Yaoi Pairings - It's not drawn very often, but I like Inori x Simon a lot and would like to rec more sites with it, so they're going in here for now. (Unlike the other teams, which all have their own section.) But this section is also for those odd pairings that just have such beautiful art that I can't help rec'ing them, even if they're not really my cup of tea. There are some of the most beautiful Tomomasa x Yorihisa illustrations out there especially and... well, yes, if it's pretty, I'll leap on it and rec it when it comes to fanart; I'm sure I've said that a hundred times by now. :D
- Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Fanart - Other Het Pairings - I have this tremendous love of Akuram x Akane. I'm not sure where it started, but I think it was... upon reading about Akane having dreams of Akuram, of learning that he's actually incredibly beautiful under that mask, of watching him and genuinely kinda liking the character a lot (and I like Akane, too) and just there being a... vibe there. It doesn't get much fanart, but whatever I can find, I gladly pounce onto. But there'll also be the other Hachiyou x Akane pairings here--Tomomasa x Akane and Yasuaki x Akane are probably the two most popular and will show up the most often, but it'll hopefully be a nice mish-mash. I've lightened up more and more as I've been a fan for a long time now and I'm open to just about anything, so long as it looks pretty. Will include Hachiyou x Karin and Hachiyou x Nozomi, of course.
- Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Fanart - Gen - And, finally, it doesn't happen all that often, but I love these characters so much that I want everything on them and occasionally there aren't any real pairings on a site, so they go here instead. Since the point of the game is dating/romance, most sites at least tend to go for het or yaoi coupling illustrations, but sometimes it's so light that it might as well not even be there or it's just character illustrations or whatever and then... well, yes, it goes here. :D (And I do genuinely like the characters and series for itself, despite that gen doesn't tend to get drawn very much at all and most people are drawn in over one couple or another.) This section has gotten bigger than I expected, but it will likely never be huge.
