04:18 pm - end of updates
Apologies to anyone who checks it, but this comm will no longer be updated. It will not be deleted.

I won't be posting anything to FFnet any more, either.

My fic remains on LJ at [info]mantic_torpor

Newer works are on [info]ishmael.

I may make a mirror at DW, potentially with more useful tags, but that's still up in the air.

Series: xxxHolic
Characters: Doumeki, Touya
Pairing: D/W
Type: AU, fantasy
Warnings: mentions of sexuality, expositiony things
Spoilers: none
Word Count: 2335
