I hadn’t considered reading fanfiction based on an otome before. That is, until, I played Hakuouki: Kyoto Winds and had chosen Susumu Yamazaki as my first bachelor. I had gotten so invested in his story line, I actually wrote a first person POV fanfiction for this series.

However, due to my own piece I decided to check out the some other fanfiction’s in the fandom. There aren’t as many (only 496 as of today!) compared to more popular series like Haikyuu!!, Free!, and My Hero Academia, but there was one that really struck a chord with me, and that was Kimi no Tameni.

Before Yamazaki stole my heart, Okita Souji was one of my favorites from the original Hakuouki, so I thought he would be a safe bet to start with in fanfiction.

TheStarsHaveAligned has created a beautifully heartbreaking story regarding Okita and Chizuru.  Much like his otome and real-life counterpart, Okita is dying of tuberculosis and this story focuses on that and the bitter impact of impending death that strains their relationship.

What would you do to save a loved one? How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice? How far are you willing to go? If you were given the chance to save them from dying, would you do it?

The story explores various snippets and events that occur between Okita and Yukimura. The Point of View changes from Chizuru’s to Okita’s and it’s rather painful to read from Okita’s POV sometimes, because the reader already knows what that odd deja vu feeling that Okita is experiencing.

If you love angst, and drama then I highly recommend this one. I was in tears for a lot of this fanfic, so if you’re also in need of a good cry, by all means this is probably a good one for that if you’re into heartbreaking romance.

This is supposed to be Part 1 of a series, but can be read as a standalone piece. I’m not sure if the author will continue, as in a previous note to me – seems to be rather nervous about their interpretation of Okita. Even though I found it fantastic like many other readers, I don’t blame her.  It’s the reason why a lot of my own fanfic stays as personal projects shared amongst friends.

Hopefully you guys will give this one a chance! Shoujo and I have discussed this particular one before as we’re both Hakuouki fangirls.  And maybe I’ll get around to posting my first person POV post sometime soon.


Bear in mind, a lot of the fanfics I’ll be suggesting will probably have a lot of angst, and have seriously brought on major bouts of crying. I love emotionally gripping stories. Like said in my introduction post to this segment – fanfics have become a source of catharsis for me, whether in reading or writing it.

Top 10 Chocolate Haired Men 

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all trying to combat your Monday Blues! I’m back with another list for MCM! Today I’ll be counting down my top 10 chocolate brown haired men. Hopefully some of these will bring a smile to your face 🙂

Oh, and it’s pretty clear this list is definitely filled with sports bias. Sorry, not sorry.

10.HEATH HASEKURA (PRINCE OF STRIDE: ALTERNATIVE)

Kicking off the list we have Heath from Prince of Stride. He’s the third year captain and a runner in Honan’s stride club. Heath is dependable kinda guy who’s got a bit of a manly spirit. He’s half British and half Japanese. One of his sister’s owns an international fashion company and has modeled a few times against his will, and modeled as a requirement for the company only to gain sponsorship for his stride team. Another dependable big brother type!
