Part 11 of 17 part series
Summary: Two of the minor characters from “Aftermaths,” Aric Dietrich and Takeshi Kimura have begun their relationship and travel to Japan to visit the rest of Takeshi’s crane-shapeshifting family. While there, they mostly spend their time frolocking and getting to know each other during several festivities.
Opinion: The characterization of Takeshi and Aric were very good and relatable, though I felt that this was downsized by the sudden intrusion of Japanese culture into an otherwise very British story. The reiteration that the “crane” people were very graceful and otherworldly beautiful seemed to be redundant after a while. I almost felt that the entire story’s purpose was to introduce another character right at the very end.
Pairings: Aric Dietrich/Takeshi Kimura, minor Severus Snape/Remus Lupin
Warnings: Alternate Universe
