  3. Summary

    chiaroscuro: the interplay of darkness and light.

    --

    “We’re called guardians,” Kuro says. “Over time, people have had different names for us, but it really all comes back to that. We’re shifters, shaper-changers… the name doesn’t really matter. What does is that we’re supposed to keep the two kinds of magical forces in the world balanced.” He rattles this off with a roll of his eyes, as though it’s something he’s heard many times over.

    Kenma thinks back to the curling snake made of shadows, to Sugawara’s words: People who shine brightly attract a lot of darkness.

    “Shadows and light,” he says, not quite a question.

    Kuro nods approvingly. “Basically, yeah. There’s a bit more to it than that—shadow magic is born of independence, of isolation and loneliness. Light magic is connections, the relationships between people. Most people have a low dose of both, go through their entire lives not realizing there’s magic in the world.”

    “But not you,” Kenma prompts.

    “Unfortunately.”

    Summary

    Not even a master manipulator like Kurama can weasel his way out of a family vacation. On top of all that, his parents insist that Kurama's live-in “boyfriend” Hiei should tag along for the ride! This means Hiei has exactly one week to prove he can pass as a human being, or a weekend getaway could become the road trip from Hell.

    Summary

    Every year, Kurama treats Hiei to a traditional box of Valentine's Day chocolates, and this year was no different. However, after an impromptu visit from Kuwabara, Hiei is left with his wheels spinning in place. Should he stoop to the level of the humans he so despises, and give Kurama a return gift on White Day? And, if so, what would he give to the fox who has stolen everything?
