A couple of months ago, during my third anniversary posts, I mentioned that I wanted to do some collaborations as I’ve never really done them before. Well, the time has come to introduce my first ever collaboration project and I’m super excited about this!
The lovely Lita from LitaKinoAnimeCorner messaged me back in May asking if I wanted to do a collaboration and, of course, I said yes! There was no way I was going to reject this offer! Not only is Lita an incredible person whose work I admire so much, but she also proposed a fanfiction collaboration, which I thought was a great idea, considering I’ve been wanting to do some creative writing recently! It was just perfect.
We wanted to write something based on what we both enjoyed and what better than Fruits Basket? We’ve both been fans of the series for a while, so it made sense to collaborate on a project like this, especially with the new adaptation airing at the same time!
Before I begin to talk about the actual collaboration, I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ to Lita for asking me to do this with you! It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with you and I’m super happy with the story we’ve created! For the rest of you, if you haven’t already (although I’d be very surprised if you haven’t!), you can check out Lita’s work by visting her blog or her YouTube channel – she talks about anime, manga and more on both platforms!
Now, onto the good stuff. This fanfiction collaboration is set a couple of years in the future, so all the characters are a little bit older than in the actual series. The pairing we chose for the fanficition is Hiro and Kisa – two of the youngest in the Souma family. The fanficition, posted below, is just over 4,000 words and may take just over 15 minutes to read. Both myself and Lita took it in turns to write the diferent parts of the story and the author of each part is indicated.
