Parallels gifts!

I got TWO this year! :D And they both kinda of fit together thematically: pauses in the action, one after, one before.

Faith, for Mugen no Juunin | Blade of the Immortal. Takes place after the events of Blizzard, but no spoilers. A quiet, meditative piece, which allows a bit of rest and healing to characters who desperately need it.

Liberty, a short piece which takes place some time after the events of Di Renjie | Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame, which you don't want to read if you haven't seen that movie yet and plan to. It's got one of the excellent qualities of fiction, which is that it's satisfying in and of itself, but leaves you wanting more.

I love both of them! Thank you, dear authors!

(And my recipient likes their work, yay! :D)

All in all, a nice start to the day.

ETA: The titles fit togehter themtically, too!

ETA2: In a way, I find commenting on works to be the hardest part of challenges like these, because I feel that all I can write is either weirdly gushing or awkwardly stilted, and in both cases seems like I'm not genuine. When all I'm really trying to do is to put :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D!!!!!! into words, and trying to pull out something specific that I like to show the creators that I appreciate the work they put into them.
