Guide to Tengu Kisses

1) Forehead touch - Appropriate for: family, loved ones. Casual show of affection.
2) Beak touch (billing) - Appropriate for: partners. Romantic gesture suitable for public
3) Open billing - Appropriate for: partners. Sexual gesture inappropriate for public
4) Bird style - Appropriate for: no one/drunks. Don’t do this. Don’t be that tengu.

Any similarities between above models and existing tengu in the Karasu universe is definitely on purpose.

Hatsuyume (初夢) is the Japanese word for the first dream had in the new year. Traditionally, the contents of the dream would foretell the luck of the dreamer in the ensuing year. It is considered to be particularly good luck to dream of Mount Fuji, a hawk, and an eggplant.

Hope you all have a great 2016! Thanks for following me and reading Fishbones, Karasu, or whatever other nonsense I’ve been putting out. I love you all!
