Title: Five Times Kino Met Zelgadis Graywords While Traveling (Four Times by Accident, and Once by Design)
Fandom: Slayers/Kino's Journey
Rating: PG
Genre: Drama
Words: 4,000
Notes/Warnings: Zelgadis/Amelia. Mention of miscarriage in the last part. Written for [community profile] fan_flashworks "Five Things" prompt, but posted late because it got HUGE.

For those who are coming in not knowing Kino's Journey, it's a series about a traveler and her talking motorcycle, living in a world full of city-states, at least half of which seem to be overt or secret dystopias. (Or maybe we just don't see most of the stories where Kino visits a place and nothing much happens). It's pretty much episodic.

For the three people who haven't seen Slayers, but are squeeing over the fact someone wrote something for Kino's Journey, Slayers is a light fantasy anime that varies from silly one-shot episodes to world-saving plots.

This is set in a series where Kino and Hermes gain the ability to travel between worlds, with glamours on Kino's guns and Hermes such that they don't draw attention to themselves. The thing is, I haven't written the first story yet that sets up the premise.
Summary: Over the years, Kino finds her path crossing another traveler's.

As the bandits moved around in the underbrush outside her campsite, Kino sighed. )

Notes/Warnings: Oh, boy. I started this ages ago. It might be older than my grad school career. I finally finished it for this year's [livejournal.com profile] casestory. Art is by [personal profile] sholio. Beta work done by [insanejournal.com profile] yuuo. Story may have a Zel/Amelia bias, but I think it can be read as friendship.
Summary: Zelgadis's attempts to settle down are not working well. When Amelia asks him to accompany him to the southern frontier of Saillune to investigate reports of sabotage, it certainly sounds like a breath of fresh air. What he finds is a mess of politics and bigotry, and Amelia's attempts to help are hit or miss... and starting to drive Zel nuts. The two of them must work together to find the saboteur, and hope the discovery doesn't touch off a riot in a town divided.

Genre: Drama
Words: 2600
Notes/Warnings: This is technically written in the same universe as None So Blind, but all you really need to know about that fic is that the Avatar characters were their canon ages about a decade before Slayers present, and were born into the Slayers universe as normal members (as normal as Slayers characters get, at least). (There's also the passing mention of Zuko/Someone-probably-female.) Needs a spot-edit -- posting to get it up before the master list goes up.

I also wanted to have Zel get that (this universe's) Iroh was a distinguished sorcerer in his own right, or at least owned the shop he was running, but Iroh didn't want to talk about himself.
Summary: Zelgadis drifts into a teashop looking for a drink and a direction. Iroh gives him both.

I'm pleased this didn't turn into a Very Special Slayers Episode regarding bisexuality. [insanejournal.com profile] yuuo gave this a look-over to make sure I got the flow and pacing right.
