Richard Lawson's Fanfics and Stuff

Slowly adding more stories. Call this my "Kodachi Update"; I added a TIL epilog called "The Color of the Rose" and my ten-part story, "Roses of Shadow".

All Purpose Cultural Catgirl Nuku Nuku fanfics

Kimagure Orange Road fanfics

Life So Dear
While Kyosuke prepares for his wedding to Madoka, a certain cousin gets into trouble, spreading chaos throughout the Kasuga clan. Important note: This fanfic is based on the manga, not the anime or movies. It references events that only took place in the manga, and builds on the end of the manga, which is different from how the anime ended. As an aside, this is one of my favorite stories that I wrote, but it never found much of an audience because so few people are familiar with the KOR manga.
Life So Dear, Part I
Life So Dear, Part II
