Personally, this troper finds that this fic heartbreaking. She agrees with the above troper that this is quite a dark fic though (which is why it is under dark fics), but the darkness only serves to fuel the story. It is very much Mind Rape
in place, and literal rape and emotional trauma for Chins. However, the writing style is wonderful. This troper (who does not ship Japan x China at all
) finds that Dreams.of.Destiny makes this pairing almost intriguely dark, and writes it in a beautiful, if very dark, way. Half A Millennium
(mentioned earlier) is also highly highly recommended.
