Title: Night by Irena K
Fandom: Trigun (with a cameo from the Buffy 'verse)
Pairing: gen
Categories: action, drama, supernatural
Length: 21,000 words
Warnings: n/a

Vash, Meryl, and Millie discover vampires. It doesn't go well.

This is the first Trigun fic I've ever recced and I'm delighted to say that it's one that would have fit right in with the actual anime (aside from, you know, the vampires). I'm most impressed by the characterization: anime characters are always tough to write, because they're usually canonically larger than life and while that works well in visual media, it doesn't always translate well into prose. Irena does a brilliant job of staying true to the characters and their relationships while keeping their actions realistic. She also does a phenomenal job of using the world of the desert planet and Plants to make a layered, interesting plot that does an excellent job of blending action with emotion.

Fun and full of action and suspense, Night is a very enjoyable Trigun fic.
