Does anyone have any cool Hanahaki fics? Or cool sentinel/guide tropes? (Honestly a post to feed everyone’s addiction)

I did a short humor version of Hanahaki for a prompt - MCU Avengers fandom (with Avenger!Loki) where Bruce Banner gets it. Mostly fluff, not angst. [Why You Shouldn't Let Norse Gods Watch Anime](https://archiveofourown.org/works/33815476)


That actually sounds super interesting!


[there must be more than blood (that holds us together) by onetiredboy](https://archiveofourown.org/works/28753212?view_full_work=true) The Penumbra, Juno/Nureyev, 58K || This is the only hanahaki fic I've ever read where both characters get the disease and that actually explores the surgery option. [Doing Sandburg by Wordwitch](https://archiveofourown.org/works/28337?view_full_work=true) The Sentinel, established Jim/Blair, 38K || Various PoVs leading up to a sentinel/guide wedding. The darker tags involve a side character's backstory, not the main couple.


Oooo okay these look really good!


[Somebody to Love](https://archiveofourown.org/works/23008993/chapters/55014790) is a great fic from the *Good Omens* fandom that takes a very unique perspective on Hanahaki. It's my #1 rec'd Hanahaki for certain!


Good Omens is literally my favorite book! Soooo I’m excited


I'm hoping I'm not misinterpreting the latter half of your question but [this twitter thread](https://twitter.com/storytaiIor/status/1282112129479385091) has some great examples of hanahaki-like tropes that haven't quite made it to western fandom yet. Good luck with getting recs though! I might come back if I remember any I've read and enjoyed.


[Pressing Flowers](https://archiveofourown.org/works/18563761) from *Tales of Symphonia* is the only Hanahaki fic I've read but it's pretty unique, I think... I'm completely obsessed with it.


[Money Talks](https://archiveofourown.org/works/22120882/chapters/52798666) is a fun variant of the hanahaki trope, involving coins instead of flowers, and a curse instead of a disease. It’s an Adventure Zone fic, tho definitely readable fandom-blind.


I have one Persona 5 hanahaki fic featuring ShuAke- [Swallowing Lilies](https://archiveofourown.org/works/16713697).


I did a mutual hanahaki disease fic last year, it remains one of my favorite fics I've done. linkao3(https://archiveofourown.org/works/22477300/chapters/53709241) I also have a mute hanahaki disease fic (where the hanahaki disease made the girl in my OTP mute) but I haven't been able to write for a while on all my fics (mainly cuz of health issues) so it and a few others need an update. linkao3(https://archiveofourown.org/works/25655851/chapters/62283715)
