Courage of the Spirit by Velf
  • Recommended by: birdie
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Chihiro is 20 and at university. Her brush with the spirit world still influences her life to today. She is trying hard to fit in with the "real world," but she is finding this difficult and the cracks are starting to show.
  • Pairing: Haku/Chihiro
  • Comments: This is beautiful, and pretty much acts as a follow up to the movie (she does make it back, I know the summary doesn't show). Although there are some serious Mayfly–December Romance issues, it is just wonderful. Not too sappy, not too serious. It's VERY long compared to the rest of the fandom; don't let that put you off. It is the single most amazingly well-written fic I've ever come across in my life. Read it if you haven't. You won't regret it.
