Hi! Just wanted to say that I love your writing, it's amazing and it gives me both the feels and a good dose of sin. Also if it's not too much trouble i'd like to request poly!roadrat, genji, and hanzo listening to their s/o read them a classic novel. Them sitting/laying and watching their s/o intently, listening to their voice, and loving every moment of it.
This is such a lovely prompt. And I realise I could have just gone with an ambiguous novel and be done with it. Instead I spent the entire day coming up with something appropriate for each character, because why wouldn’t I do that.
Poly!Roadrat - Momo. Simply because I feel like they would enjoy the plucky underdog fighting against
suits men in grey.
Genji - Frankenstein. Yeah, I know, way too easy. But how the creature is portrayed in the novel reflects both the self-hate Genji used to have and the way he sees himself now (also The Tale of Genji would have been even easier)
Hanzo - The Thief Lord. I realise it’s not a classic novel, but God I had the hardest time picking out something for him that fit. I first went through some Japanese classics, but with his extensive education he would have probably read a lot of them already and I wanted something that none of the characters had read before. European literature didn’t really have the themes I was looking for and pre-colonial African classics are pretty much impossible to find, except for the assurance that they exist. So, in my despair, I went to get a snack, walked by my bookcase and my childhood jumped practically into my arms. The Thief Lord is about two brothers who escape their troubled home and do everything to protect each other, and finally finding a family in an unlikely place. It’s everything Hanzo and Genji could have had if it weren’t for tragedy and fratricide.
Anyway, now that you’ve suffered through my ramblings, I hope you enjoy :)
