In feudal Japan, Forte is Emperor of the land who comes to acquire a precious gift from the wood nymph Terra, in the shape of a nightingale. Any gift given by the gods comes with a tag, as he learns first hand, and Forte must take special care of the nightingale or else.

AU and some OOCness...mostly just Forte. Shounen-ai, Forte/Galen (who will be named later), Shadow/Crystal. Odd couples, Zero/Kalinka, Forte/Iris. And so on and so forth, yada yada, my most unpopular story to date. Help convince me otherwise!
