Summary: A fate weaver performing an important service.
Author's Notes: First time writing in years, so crit is appreciated.

It was so small, yet so precious.

The woman looked over the golden thread as she held it up from the weave. It appeared almost pained from the way she was tugging at it. Persistently. Mercilessly. She lifted the scissors up once she had enough of a space between the thread and the tapestry to slip the tip through, and paused.

From across the room, her client coughed. A frown twitched across her face momentarily, and she cut the thread. It was more resistant than she'd expected, but the fibers parted easily enough.

"There, have fun with your new fate."

Summary: Saselia can't keep her hands to herself.
Author's Notes: Thank you for inviting me to join the community!

"If you follow a loose thread to its point of origin, you're probably going to find a snag."

Anyway, that was how Saselia remembered her mother saying it, and Mom usually gave good advice.

Right now it was a thread hanging from Bashir's sleeve. It was long, swinging around with his every motion. She kept reaching out to try and grab it, but having neglected to mention her goal to Bashir, it escaped her grasp.

Finally, fingers met thread. Saselia tugged. Bashir’s sleeve only unraveled further, opening a visible hole.

Maybe the snag she was meant to find wasn’t literal.

Warnings: Japanese superstitions
Disclaimer: None
Summary: Some people are connected to one another whether they like it or not.
Author’s Note: This is from an on-going piece that I have been working on for about eleven years. All the main characters are Japanese. There is an old Japanese idea that two people who are destined to be together in the way of soul mates are connected by a red string or thread tied to their pinkies.


Daisuke gave her a hard look as she shook her head.

“No.” Rina said it firmly, though she felt her pinky twitch at the thought. “No,” she said again. She was not falling for that old superstition. Seven years was enough time. That tea at Kaoru’s apartment was enough. She was not connected by some ruby colored thread to the infuriating man. She had been in America too long to believe in old wives' tales.

Daisuke’s eyebrow rose. “You’re lying,” he commented.

Rina glared at him and bit her pinky meaningfully. “It’s just a finger. No thread. So, bite me.”

Summary: Hmm, love?


I am undone.

She’s picked and prodded at me: seductive words, long lingering looks, and finally her drugging endless kisses. Each foray probing for a weakness—an opening—the faintest hint of thread on which to seize.

Eventually I tire of the thrust and parry. On a clammy summer’s night which leaves us short of breath, I grant her access. “I am in love you.”

She stills. Not in wonderment, nor pleasure, nor contentment. There’s just a gleam of triumph in her eyes. “Oh.”

With one swift tug I am unraveled.

And yet I cannot bring myself to feel regret.
