rain, rain, tasting sweet like sugarcane - mimizans - xxxHoLic, Shiritsu Horitsuba Gakuen [Archive of Our Own]
Watanuki scowls as water sloshes into his shoes. His entire right side is soaking wet, the books in his messenger bag will take days to dry out, and it’s still a ten-minute walk back to the dorms. To top it all off, he’s stuck sharing an umbrella with his least favorite person on this entire planet of Earth.

|| This fic is really not sure what tense it wants to be in, but gosh. Doumeki and Watanuki--in, I think, a high school AU--but accurate to Doumeki and Watanuki at their most placid and most excitable, respectively.

a single thread - aliferlia - CLAMP - Fandom, xxxHoLic [Archive of Our Own]
CLAMP Secret Santa 2014! The xxxholic trio gets a happy ending.

|| Oh. I was worried I was going to be disappointed by this--but I actually really liked it. Strikes the dialogue tone of holic that is so odd: part daily banter, part loaded vagueblogging (basically), part stunningly and awkwardly honest.

Denial, By Any Other Name - factorielle - xxxHoLic [Archive of Our Own]
"I want to make one thing very clear," Watanuki said instead, still glaring down at the paper. "We are only here because we missed the last of the two trains a day that leave from this place, and the room was cheap." Probably because the owner of the inn owed Yuuko a few limbs. "This is purely incidental. The thought that it might be anything even remotely close to a honeymoon would be ludicrous."

|| I'm pretty sure I've saved this before, maybe on LJ, but here it is, the full version, on Ao3, and oh, I love these characters just as much as before. I'm going to go catch up on rei and probably feel deeply upset about my life and my choices.

That part where you have to meet the family - rallamajoop - xxxHoLic [Archive of Our Own]
If you think hiding a relationship from living relatives is hard, hiding it from deceased relatives is impossible. Fortunately, it's also completely unnecessary.

|| Ah. Good. First part from Watanuki's viewpoint, second from Doumeki's, and both do an excellent job presenting how the two view the world differently, and interact with their various Elder-Others. Nice.

A cranky spider monarch. The chick who ate the Little Mermaid. Definitely not a match made in any Shintoist idea of heaven. Featuring haiku, witty servants, baby-eating priests, ornamental fish ponds, and fluffy angst.

starcrossedsins: Where the moon should be [June 12th] [Fai, Himawari] [Tsubasa & xxxHOLiC]
It had been the girl he'd noticed first, all tumbling hair and shining eyes and shining smiles too bright to be real. She had stood out to him like an oddly instant beacon, a silent flash of recognition and sting; and long fingers tightened around the staff he was passing over as payment for the children in his own care.

Something about her had been wrong, too; something that made him want to pass his hand over those curls and soothe, to offer what little comfort he could.

(There was a law even baser than hitsuzen: Like seeks like. And understanding alone was more than either could have asked for.)

Be wise as thou art cruel - evil_whimsey - xxxHoLic [Archive of Our Own]
Doumeki and Watanuki and Sonnet 140 (Shakespeare).

|| Augh. This doesn't even follow xxxHolic Rou, or the ending of holic proper, and it still carries a weight with it like the ending of those. Softly, sharply beautiful. The ending is--unclear, in a way I think would hurt even more with clarity--but is still terrible. In the --good way? The good way.

Abort, Fail, Retry - evil_whimsey - xxxHoLic [Archive of Our Own]
They can't seem to do anything right together, but still Doumeki is there.

|| Oh. Well, this comes after my Watanuki feelings with a fork. Spoilers for the end of Tsubasa/the near-end of xxxHolic, and deals with the crisis of identity Watanuki was going through at the time. The Watanuki/Doumeki is rushed, and doesn't really make sense at the beginning, but by the time it gets to section 4, it's really pulled itself together.

sparklyfanta: XxxHolic Fic!
Still, Tezuka decided, it was worth speaking to Watanuki for two reasons. Firstly, Shinohara had spoken to him more than any other student on an individual level. Secondly, he was friends with Doumeki Shizuka, and Doumeki Shizuka had been one of the boys to discover Yagami Midori’s bones, buried beneath a hydrangea in a park not far from the school. Tezuka wondered if it was worth betting on the identity of the other boy involved in the discovery.

Am I easy for xxxholic? Please. Do I breathe.

Archive of Our Own » works index --> psiten/Skinner, Anime/Manga
Okay, the last thing I expected to do last night was spend the whole night reading Naruto and CLAMP fic. But, uh, that's what happened, thank you pinboard network! Skinner is a delightful author: serious and sexy by turns, alongside an ability to write a number of different voices. The characters I read--especially in the early work--are not QUITE canonical, but she's especially good at Naruto and Watanuki's loud pigheaded-ness.

Especially recced:
*Fifteen Mokona on a Dead Man's Chest, for worldbuilding, romp-y-ness, sexiness, banter, and a variety of characters.

*The Butterfly Effect, for adorable. Itachi sticks around, and finds Sasuke a friend. So weak to kids, y'all. So weak.

Most of these are WIPs, forewarning, which hurts my soul. But the author's main page on AO3 and LJ is really damn organized. I get the feeling Skinner updates when things are done, but is consistently working.

The Professor's Wife - Chapter 1 - foolish_mortal - xxxHoLic [Archive of Our Own]
The students all said that Professor Doumeki had a wife who made him lunches and impeccably pressed his shirts. Watanuki found this hilarious. For the wtfholic fest prompt: "The only people who can see Watanuki are customers with wishes."

|| Somehow, I'd convinced myself I hadn't read this, because, re-starting it, nothing seemed familiar. It's that character-driven. Nevertheless, this is perfect: it's soft and sad and hopeful in all the best ways the manga was, and I absolutely have slotted it into canon. That's done, and finally, I am at peace with the ending of xxxholic.

Restoration - thehoyden - xxxHoLic [Archive of Our Own]
"The prefectural authorities want to know where he has been, what he has been doing, if he is who he says he is."

AYYYYYYYYYYY!!! FLAILFLAILFLAIL. YES. YES. GOD. INCOHERENT. Sometimes, I despair of anyone ever jumping back on the bandwagon of xxxholic (GOD GUYS THEY ARE SO GAY FOR EACH OTHER OH GOD HAVE YOU READ THE LATEST CHAPTERS I AM DYING) and I love the manga, but I am fandom's bitch and need fanfic to accompany and. And. Then thehoyden, who is clearly a sign that we all did something good in our past lives, comes and puts me out of my misery. With wonderful. I AM MIXING METAPHORS, I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

Watanuki's wish is granted.

"Because I like falling, I like the concept of falling, I like how it feels to fall, and I’m certainly not the only one haunted by that last sudden stop." Holy shitballs, Batman. Although I got a little lost in the first part, the dialogue here is STUNNINGLY PERFECT. I could be tagging this, I think, for the last 13 lines. It is just. I don't think I've read Doumeki and Watanuki declare their love in a way that read more like the manga. Fantastic.

xxxHolic, the Persuasion Post
I love this manga and this fandom, so very, very much. Words do not really express. But emotionalperil does a damn good job of it. ...And has almost convinced me to man up and by the translations. The English of scanlations has been known to ruin those with weak minds.

"What use could he have for hitsuzen, when there are already inevitabilities like this?" YESSSSS. Doumeki is silent in the perfect places, I love it, and she makes one note about Yuuko that is just spot-on. (You'll know it when you see it.) Short, but practically perfectly formed.

Someone else is giving Doumeki bento. Watanuki...doesn't take it very well. And, just to prove its wonderfulness: Watanuki attempts to give Doumeki an orange for lunch.
