Fan Fic: Lost in Translation
Lost in Translation
, a Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle
fanfic by Sunlight through Leaves
, is a post-series fic that focuses on the developing relationship between Fai and Kurogane in a new world where, thanks to Mokona’s declaration of “family” and an error in translation, the assumption that they're married
sparks a chain of events that quickly lands all of them in a lot of trouble.
This simple translation bungle reveals itself to be a sign of the massive ongoing error of communication between Kurogane and Fai that symbolises their relationship and the difficulties they have in understanding one another’s motivations and actions.
The world the gang arrive in, and the fic itself, is in part inspired by this piece of art
as drawn by the artist Konnichipuu
, and heavily influenced by the steam punk genre
. The world this fic is set in is fascinating, and the culture intriguing; the plot moves fast and features a well-structured antagonist and some believeable and likeable OC's
that don’t detract from the main cast in any way.Although the fic is quite short (and still updating) a lot happens in four chapters, managing to fit in some drama and emotional upheaval as well as motorbike racing and some definite tension
between Kurogane and Fai.Has nothing to do with
the film Lost in Translation
