Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Final chapter, guys. Thanks for reading! “There is not much more to tell, sensei,” Harun told Kenshin. “I rode as fast as I could back, I made up time. Hoping to at least make the final day of the Topaz Championship. But I didn’t, and here I am.” “Indeed you are,” said Kenshin. He poured more tea fo...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Later on, Majid and Harun walked the battlements. Something to do since they couldn’t go riding. It was a poor substitute, but it was something. Majid explained he had tried to help Kibo, to heal what ailed him with what he knew of the Void. But Majid couldn’t. “I did what I could to help, but the d...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

It turned cool as afternoon turned to evening, Harun wandered the coridoors in a daze. Hardly anyone was around, they seemed all indoors for one reason or another. Harun made his way to the Swift Sword Dojo. The main building was empty as everyone was at the evening meal. He turned to leave, intendi...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Just a heads up to my readers, the end of the story is in sight! Thank you for staying with me on this incredible journey and I hope you'll continue to read The Duty of War when it starts getting written. In it we see Harun in the Emerald Legion, the taking of Toshi Ranbo as well as the next Imperia...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

The day of Zetsubou’s funeral dawned clear and bright. The last of the snow had fallen during the night and the sky was blue and cloudless. Harun woke early, he breakfasted with Majid in their room. The mood was sombre and even Majid was not inclined to talk. Then then changed. Majid into his white ...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Update here, and we finally meet the Lion Champion. **** The meals that Harun had shared with the Lion as their guests had been solemn, formal affairs. What he went to that evening was somewhere between that and the family dinners he remembered from Shiro Yogashi, before he had left for the Kakita A...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Harun and Majid went riding after that, taking advantage of the light. The Plains of Bloodied Honour had nothing on the vastness of the steppes of the Unicorn lands. But to be in the saddle, riding free with the wind in his hair…there was nothing like it. Majid grinned when he looked over at Harun. ...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Majid arrived three days later, travelling on horseback accompanying the cart that Zetsubou’s wife Akodo Nikako travelled in with the small children. Akodo Koneko rode as well, her red hair catching the light of the sun as the part rode into Shiro sano Ken Hayai, shadowed by the escorts that Majid h...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Sorry about the long delay with updates, here is something rather substantial ------- That afternoon, Harun found a quiet place not far from the Swift Sword Dojo to practice. The air had turned cool, but after a few rounds of drills with a bokken, he had warmed up. He then put aside the bokken and u...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Sorry for the lack of update, these past few days have been very busy. Things should quiet down after the weekend though Shiro sano Ken Hayai was the ruling seat of the Kitsu family, built on the bones of the first five of the Kitsu race. However, it was the Akodo family that administered the castle...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Much of the Lion lands had been overrun by the Onyx hordes, but there were signs of recovery and repair. It took them a few days of heading north to get to Shiro sano Ken Haya—the Castle of the Swift Sword. They rested in inns when they could and beneath the wagon when they couldn’t. They arrived at...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

The last days of court brought a lot of last minute activity. Packing to be done, farewells to be said. Last kumis passed around and dances around the fire. Harun knew he had to leave, but he was sorry to. One day , he promised himself, I will bring Arahime out here. She had as much Unicorn blood as...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

They broke camp and left the same day, making steady progress towards Shiro Moto. The mood was sombre. Harun rode in the lead, Majid behind him leading Zetsubou’s horse, riderless. Zetsubou’s body had been secured safely in one of the ox carts, wrapped in blankets. Snow started to fall and an icy wi...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Okay, feel I just have to say this. Tonight, someone dies. :( ---- Harun was silent more a long time, trying to find the words to express what had happened. He could feel his emotion rising, overcoming him. He took a long sip of tea and a few deep breaths. “My apologies, sensei,” said Harun. “This p...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Several days passed which were fortunately busy so Harun didn’t have time to think too much about what had happened with him and Asuna. There was another feast under the stars, this time the dancing a lot more informal spontaneous. There was also a “poetry evening” in one of the chomchog tents that ...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

Harun woke the next morning in a daze. Had it really happened? Were her gentle kisses, her soft touch, her warm embrace a dream? He only had to turn to see Asuna there sleeping beside him, her naked shoulder just visible above the fur felts and woollen blankets. He smiled at her, not daring to move ...

Re: L5R - Chasing the Winds - A Winter Court 5 Sequel Fic

The Khan’s loft on the top floor of the tenshukaku afforded a beautiful view from the balcony. Below the great plains of the Field of the Winds in the moonlight, the many lights of the campfires glinting like little stars. Moto Chinua’s chambers themselves were rather austere, the furnishings and dé...
