I first starting Raiju's fics when she first joined the site, loving the fact that she (in my mind) mainly specializes in Billshido fics that do not consist of Bushido being an ass, Bill a slut, or Bill getting raped (except for in one of her fics but it's so worth it). So anyways I immediately fell in love with Raiju's writings.
After her first achievement with her featured fic "What Patience Earns" a fic telling the story of Bushido comforting Bill after Tom has died and has no reason to live. At the time of the feature that story was a tear-jerker and definitely became one of the most memorable stories on THF. It was a story that contained suspense, tension, emotional turmoil, and an odd sense of hope throughout the whole thing. It was a huge splash in the THF community rivaling that of other major writers such as undrockroll, cynical-terror, knw, kishmet, fryedancer, and many other talented writers.
However it Raiju's most recent featured fic "King of Kingz", a story that revolves around the lives of drug dealers and the events that Bill endures after Tokio Hotel has broken up and Tom is placed in jail, is by the far the most amazing fic on THF ever written. Legends such as Beren blew us away with Tom/Bill in 2007 or the duo of Majestrix and Little Muse with their flare for AU/Fantasy fics, but Raiju has upped it to a new level with the once hated pairing of Bushido/Bill.
Raiju breathes life into her characters and excels in writing by not making the characters her own, but representing them as they really are in real life. Her description of Bill in "Obloquy" moved me to tears throughout several chapters and her characterization of Bushido in "King of Kingz" surpasses even the mind-blowing performance of that.
"King of Kingz" is by far the best piece of fiction that I have ever read in the THF fandom (in my opinion) and I highly suggest all members of the fan fiction community to read it even if you aren't a Billshido fan! This is one story that has definitely raised the bar above and beyond!
