There are millions of stories in the Old West. This is one of them.
A Fruits Basket Alternate Universe Fic
set in the Wild West
, specifically the Arizona Territory in 1880. Kyo Sohma is the son of a samurai family; of course, after the Meiji Revolution, the samurai no longer exist, so some time prior to the beginning of the story, Kyo and his fiance Tohru Honda come to America to start a new life. When the story begins, Kyo is seen harrassing an abusive railroad foreman and has been harassing abusive foremen for some time. This gets him a wanted poster and this poster is noticed by a newly arrived young gunslinger coming in from Texas. Kyo catches wind of this gunslinger and tries to kill him... only to find himself staring down the barrel of the gunslinger's Colt 45.
After that misunderstanding, Kyo and the gunslinger, whose name is Jimmy Michaels, become friends after Kyo saves Jimmy's life. The plot doesn't kick in until the 3rd chapter when Kyo meets someone from his past who intends to kill him. This sets off a series of events which end up getting Kyo and Jimmy deputized to apprehend the crime boss who sent the man, leading to a conflict in a Japanese mansion in the middle of the Arizona desert.
