Hi, everyone! I'm back. (kind of)
I just want to recommend this fanfic. It's really good and I'm kinda sad that less people are reviewing it lately. I believe that quality fictions should be given more love because they take more effort to write, and the only thank you that we can give to the author for writing such a wonderful story is to review the fic and encourage her to write more.
Title: Bird on a Wire
Author: Lanie Kay-Aleese
Genre: Romance / Supernatural
Words: 46,270 (or 9 chapters, as of June 21, 2012)
Status: Incomplete (as of June 21, 2012)
Setting: Modern Japan
The youkai are nearly extinct, but dangers still pulse deep beneath the cement covering the Kanto plain. In a city where the winds blow too strong for birds to cling to telephone wires, what happens to those who find fate too much for their souls to bear?
It has humor, drama, angst, mystery and suspense, and it is very well written. What more can you ask for?
When I first started reading this fic, I was also given a glimpse of the Japanese lifestyle. This is a plus point for me because I've noticed that many authors twist reality (think of Japanese households, for example
On random days, don't you find yourself staring at everyday things that you usually take for granted? And then you ponder about your life and the kind of reality that revolves around you. You think of your small presence in this big world and wonder about things that you have yet to find out, powerful (supernatural) things that you are not even aware of... This fic gives me this kind of feeling.
Every time I read an update, I am reminded of how much I love this fic.
The rating may be M, but in my opinion, it is also the kind of story that the younger fans can enjoy. It really is an all-around fic, so I hope many people will give this a chance and read it.
