I wanted to get this done yesterday, on January 17th, but it didn't happen, alas. At any rate, Karafuto Ojisan fic! The number of people who can enjoy this is small, but... please enjoy. XD;

title: anniversary
rating: pg
pairings: gen; Tohru and Hitomi-centric
warnings: the focus of this fic is PTSD and the treatment thereof. While it’s not described particularly in detail, if that topic is likely to be upsetting to you, please read with caution.
word count: 1,280

author’s note: This is set on January 17th, 2010, five years after the end of Karafuto Ojisan. It follows the timeline of 赤いスイートピー, but is set before it. You don’t necessarily need to read it to understand what’s going on here, but it might answer some questions. Like in 赤いスイートピー, I named Hitomi’s unborn (at the time of the play) child, though he doesn’t play a major part in this fic. Written for the 22nd anniversary of the Hanshin Earthquake in 1995.
summary: Hitomi has never really known how to help Tohru on the anniversary of the earthquake that totally destroyed his life.

January seventeenth is not a good day for Tohru. )

So… I had so many feelings about Karafuto Ojisan that somehow, this happened. Over 8,000 words of this happened?! I don't even know what else to say besides that the play really was amazing, and Inochan was really amazing, too. ♥ I'm actually really proud of how this turned out, so I hope that it's an enjoyable read!

title: 赤いスイートピー
rating: pg
pairings: gen; focused on Tohru and Hitomi (Inoo's and Matsunaga Reiko's characters from Karafuto Ojisan)
warnings: Mentions of poor parenting, parental death, PTSD, and earthquakes. Please read with discretion. There's also sort-of an OC; see the author's note.

author's note: I have so much to say about this and I don't really know how to say it. XD; I'm that weirdo who wrote over eight thousand words about a play that probably five people total in international fandom saw, but I really wanted to sort out my feelings at the end of the play. It leaves off with a sort of oddly ambiguous "happy end," but it didn't feel good to me (or, from my eavesdropping, a lot of the Japanese fans at the shows I was at XD;), so I wanted to give it my own positive conclusion. I do want to mention that I named and gave a gender and a few lines to Hitomi's unborn child from the play, but I'm not sure that it makes so much more of a difference that it really counts as an OC. The title is from Matsuda Seiko's Akai Sweet Pea, for which you can find an English translation here (though the part I used in the fic, I translated myself, so it's a bit different). For reference, red sweet pea is a flower. If you want to read my plot summary of the play, you can find it here!
summary: They've grown into themselves, but they've grown into their little family, too, and, Hitomi thinks idly, perhaps when she'd dreamed of going to a far-off place by train as a child, this had been the final stop that she was looking for.

Kobe is a nice city, Hitomi thinks to herself as she moves around the factory in the calm stillness of the morning. )
