So this ended up somewhat longer than I expected (some planner I am)…

The Seimei Loom on AO3 [x]

The early Edo period of Japan saw the Kiryuin family rise to great prominence in the recently-established Shogunate. But there were some that claimed that their influence derived not from shrewdness in politics, nor from courage on the field, but through the exercise of sorcery, and in particular use of a loom that would, it was said, weave whatever they desired, though it exacted a terrible price.

Words: 25,325

Chapter 1: 純潔 / Purity

Chapter 2: 鮮血 / Fresh Blood

Chapter 3: Epilogue

Notes:

Y’all know how much I love feudal Japanese AUs, so here’s another one. It’s not the same universe as “In an Autumn Forest…” though the time period is broadly similar.

Folklore enthusiasts will recognize the reference to the Japanese tale “The Vampire Cat of Nabéshima”. These days, of course, we supernatural felines spread sorrow through our writing, and not by murdering people’s loved ones, ho ho.

In this AU, Satsuki and Ryuko aren’t related (OK, it’s complicated), but if you find satsuryu inherently problematic in any context then this one probably isn’t for you.

Also includes references to / mentions of (in no particular order): blood, decapitation, broken limbs, alcohol, drunkenness, vomiting, death by fire, childbirth, impromptu surgery and peaches.

THIS IS IMPORTANT.

THIS IS STILL IMPORTANT.

Now imagine roles reversed, and Satsuki trying to play and sing (badly).

“Calm down! It’s really me!” her body said. She watched as her hands went up in defense. “Four days ago, we were sitting on the couch watching one of your stupid crime dramas and eating mediterranean take out from the place three blocks up and you farted and told me not to tell anybody! You even lifted your butt! And before you start really freaking out, it’s fine; you’re just in my body which like, isn’t anything new.”

Heard y’all really like the idea of a body swap au

If I might propose a slight addition…

Satsuryu body swap au with a side order of concurrent makonon body swap:

  • Nonon in Mako’s body confessing her undying love to Ryuko in Satsuki’s body
  • Mako attempting to conduct Nonon’s band for some important concert

It’s almost Shakespearean…
