  • Status: Dormant; last updated February 2018
  • Synopsis: Nishimura sees his first yokai. He handles the whole thing about as well as one might expect.
  • Comment: Great characterization on Natsume's schoolmates and a nice exploration of how they feel about being left out of the loop and might react upon learning about the things Natsume has been hiding from them.

  • Comment: This well written fic told from Natsume's perspective made me interested enough in the character and his related cast to read his manga.

The Human Mask by Harunekonya

  • Recommended by: Trachim_brod
  • Status: Dormant. Last updated August 28, 2016 with 116 chapters.
  • Synopsis: Sequel to Worthy of a Name. Natsume slowly learns to deal with life as a god. An inter-connected vignette series. Gen Fic.
  • Comment: This is a well-written fanfiction, with gripping and well-researched storyline. It's one of those few fanfics which actually improve the original story; here the author broadens Natsume's world, adding spiritual laws, secret organizations and famous legends, plus the interesting original characters. And as incredible as it seems, the writer still manages to stay true to the original work while adding character development as the fanfiction progresses. Ah!, and I nearly forgot to mention the awesome crossover (which you don't need to know to enjoy this fic).

How well does it match the trope?
