Title: Stairway To Heaven (ch. 8c)
Author/Artist: Amethyst Hunter
Fandom: Get Backers
Theme: #22 - "cradle"
Rating: PG-13 (language, m/m)
Warnings/Spoilers: Minor ones for basic canon.
Notes: By necessity this chapter is short - I'm having computer problems (again). :/ Comments are still welcome, though it may be a while before I can respond due to the aforementioned situation.
- The tarot used is the standard deck; I tweaked it a little to provide suitable drama for Himiko's reading. ;)
- I’d just like to add that pneumonia is VERY SERIOUS so if you ever get it, or know someone who has, PLEASE seek medical attention asap. It’s what killed a family member of mine a few years ago.
- "Nebt-het" is part of Akane's name; it's Egyptian for "lady of the house."
- "Karawan" is part of Akabane's Egyptian name; it's an ancient expression meaning "to ward off the evil eye."
Disclaimer: Don't own the GBers. Akane and Alistair Akabane though, are my own inventions.
Summary: Himiko reflects on the mysterious no-man's land that brought Ban and Akabane together, and a new path revealed sets into motion a revolution that will change everyone's lives forever.( It's Akabane vs. Big Daddy, while Ban referees and Himiko tends MommabaneCollapse )
