Aftermath Universe -- Based on Characters from: "Tokyo Crazy Paradise" by Yoshiki Nakamura
Stories rarely end at the end. Follows the end of Tokyo Crazy Paradise and includes Kai and Asago's wedding, Ryuji and Tsucasa's life together, Tsucasa's new friend Aoi who has secrets of her own, and Tsucasa's first pregnancy --oh, and Shiva's reaction to Tsucasa and Ryouji marrying (without him there).
Included in this universe are (1) "Honest Woman" and (2) "Motherhood".
Honest Woman (Ryuji/Tsucasa; Shiva/OC (Aoi Shibata); Asagao/Kai) Kai is finally making an honest woman of Asago, Ryuji is making Tsucasa crazy, and Shiva is very interested in Tsucasa's new friend who is not quite what she seems.
Motherhood (Ryuji/Tsucasa) Ryou's observations of how motherhood softens Tsucasa.
It still stikes me as odd that I will break out only a few of my most beloved songs when it comes to universes based in my favorite stories. For the Aftermath Universe, I trot out only two of my all-time favorites.
"Kiss" by Maroon 5 Because each of the women have resolved themselves that they want their man's extra time --and his kiss.
"All That I'm Asking For" by Lifehouse The song is about not being perfect but wanting that someone beside you... It's really just perfect for this story...
~ "First Time" by Lifehouse "...For once in my life, I'm scared to death..." It's about first times --and the fact that they can be frightening!
