Title: A Crack in the Mask, Chapter 1
Rating: T
Characters/Pairings: DoumekiXWatanuki
Length: ~1500 words for this chapter, and ~5000 words in total, I think, once all the chapters are uploaded.
Summary: Overcoming Doumeki's silence, and Watanuki's denial. The power of words, and of masks.
Link/s: You can find this story here at FF.net, or here at my fanworks journal.

I have already completed writing this story, with three chapters following this first one, so no need to fear my neglecting the story - it's finished! As I upload the remaining chapters over the next week or so, I will update the links at my fanworks journal. Alternately, you can add the story to your Story Alerts on FF.net if you use that. Once all of the chapters have been released, I'll post an entry here linking to the story as a whole rather than making a new post for each chapter.

Crossposted to doumekiwatanuki. I hope that's okay.

So I can find no evidence that I've linked these fics before, despite some of them being VERY OLD. S- so if you've seen these before and I really HAVE linked them... please forgive me for the spam. :|a;;;;

But she understood when she did.


Title: We Dig Our Fingers in and Refuse to Let Go

Pairing: Blink and you'll miss the slight Dou/Wata/Hima. And/or one-sided Hima --> Wata/Dou
Rating: PG
Warning: Oh, the angst. The aaaangst.

Doumeki finds her sitting on the porch.


Title: Hang Your Head Without the Noose
Characters: Himawari, Watanuki, mention of Yuuko
Pairing: Wata/Hima

Summary: Watanuki and Himawari discuss the situation over the phone.

There’s a surprise sound, and then a small, almost painful laugh.


Title: As There's Always Been the Burning
Characters: Himawari, Doumeki, Watanuki
Pairing: Wata/Hima by way of Hima --> Doumeki <-- Watanuki, also probably one fucked up Doumeki/Watanuki/Himawari
Rating: R
Warning: Replacement(?) sex
Summary: Watanuki and Himawari can only meet once a year, but once a year is not nearly enough. Doumeki acts as "messenger".

Doumeki fingers thread in her hair, just the way that Watanuki would.


Title: The Symphony
Characters: Himawari, briefly Watanuki
Pairing: Slight Watanuki/Himawari
Rating: G

Pairing: None
Rating: PG

Watanuki sits on the veranda, smoke curling from the pipe in his idle hand.

Warning: All the spirits getting all up on Watanuki, lol. Nothing explicit, though.

He doesn’t quite respond, but gives her a small smile in return


Title: Drops in our Memories

Pairing: One-sided Zashiki-warashi --> Watanuki

She still can’t look him in the eye.


Title: By these Choices
Characters: Zashiki-Warashi, Watanuki
Pairing: One-sided Zashiki-warashi --> Watanuki
Rating: G
Summary: It takes Zashiki-Warashi one hundred and seven years to finally find the courage to confess her feelings. It takes Watanuki that long to become aware of those feelings.

It takes Zashiki-Warashi one hundred and seven years to finally find the courage...

Title: The Three Brothers

Author: LatheJoiye

Fandom: xxxHolic / Harry Potter

Rating: K+

Summary: Post-Manga. Shopkeeper!Watanuki. Oneshot. Beedle the Bard’s version of ‘The Three Brothers’ is not entirely accurate. The one who the three brothers met that day was not 'Death' but a mysterious man claiming to be a wish-shop keeper. And he demands a price.

Title: Full Circle
Author: Miss Shad
Fandom: xxxHolic
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Mild AU
Summary: The story of Kimihiro Watanuki and Shizuka Doumeki. One yearns to know where he belongs, the other yearns to feel needed. Through the ties of their fates--and a little help from a certain Dimensional Witch--they may find both.

Haruka knew that if there was one thing his impassive grandson enjoyed--though his reaction would probably have one believe otherwise--it was listening to stories.

Title: asphyxiophilia
Author: nebulia@con_noncuranza
Rating: PG-15, for boys in their late teenage years having hormones. Or really, just one boy.
Warnings: Drug abuse. This also depicts an incredibly unhealthy, relatively codependent relationship, with both partners aware and complicit that it has the potential to be very damaging, though this is especially on Doumeki's side.
Summary: [He dreams of drowning, of moving to the Mariana Trench and living on the bottom of the ocean floor and waking up one morning unable to breathe suddenly, gasping in buckets of salty water until his vision flickers in the dark—

and he wakes up, choking on air.] Doumeki attempts to function. It sort of works.
Notes: I started writing this when the general fandom assumption was—due to what seemed to be some pretty strong canonical hints—that Yuuko (and thus Watanuki) smoked opium. In 194, the pipe-seller mentions tobacco, however, which might (though not necessarily) disprove the theory. Thus, Watanuki smokes both opium and tobacco, probably together.
This deviates from canon not long after the first time jump post chapter 186, which was when I started writing it. I suppose it could technically be canon-compliant, but I don't really see it that way.

( Shizuka dreams of living at the bottom of the ocean, deep in the Mariana Trench, alone and happy. )

To celebrate the love that is our fandom, what is more appropriate than a Valentines-White Day Exchange?  What can be more heart-warming than creating a piece of xXxholic love for a fellow fan and receiving one in return?  This is the time of year when you can tell all the hearts and disturbing teddybears to go away and feel the love of fandom! \o/

You want to be an xXxholic Valentine, don't you?  You know you do!

Title: A Web of Pearls
Writer: iluxia
Words: 4,100 (excluding lengthy footnotes)
Rating(s): PG-13 for some frightening themes.
Pairs/Characters: Doumeki/Watanuki (established, past, hinted); Watanuki-introspective. Platonic Watanuki/Yuuko.
Prompt: Response to hundred_wishes Prompt #062: Spider, and also to Prompt Challenge #002: Crossover. It isn't really a crossover, but plenty of the themes reference to other fandoms, because I'm a geek like that. See footnotes.

( "He knows better, he truly knows better. But when he catches sight of her, he steps in." In which Watanuki succumbs to temptation and his lonely heart. )
