Title: "Between Two Families"
Fandom: The Fox Woman (Kij Johnson)
Rating: PG-13
Length: 732 words
Content notes: Set immediately after the ending. References to past marital infidelity, historical customs (Heian era Japan) that might be construed as sexism
Author notes: I recently finished reading Kij Johson's exquisite fantasy novel "The Fox Woman", set in Heian-era Japan and based on several fox legends, in which a human falls in love with a fox who has transformed into a human. I loved the story, but it ended on a bit of a question mark, and so I thought I'd take a look at at one answer to that question. There's also a little bit of Akira Kurosawa's "Rashomon", since I have three different takes on the same events.
Summary: Kitsune leaves a sign to Yoshifuji; he makes his choice.
