I’ve recently been drawn back into this fandom and have been trying to search for an old but beautiful fic.
It’s about how both Kurogane and Fai got sent back to Nihon country separately. Fai uses his magic to turn himself into a bird and was sort of adopted by Kurogane. Tomoyo managed to figure out his identity. Towards the end, Fai got himself captured by some girls who are jealous of the attention Kurogane gives him. He was rescued and by Kurogane.
Really hope someone remembers the name of this even after such a long time!
Thank you in advance!
