Cat tiem

I'm just a cat, rping and reblogging

I have fandomless ocs and homestucks and I'm trying to branch out from those a bit. I also love Kimetsu no Yaiba and anything involving youkai or vampires!

Youkai in Nagasaki

This "world" is low on world building, but is based on Japan in the Tokugawa Era, when Japan was closed off from the rest of the world with the exception of Nagasaki as a trading port open to the Chinese, Koreans and Dutch, and a few smaller ports with even more restrictions. In this version of Japan, youkai - or the spirits talked about in Japanese folklore - and kami (native Japanese deities) both definitely exist.

On this note, there will be a focus on cat youkai, or kaibyou, living in Nagasaki near the beginning of the era (ambiguously between 1650 and 1700) and their interactions with the human population. There will also be specific points of divergence, although minor, from historic Tokugawa Japan. (Simply because I wanted there to be a cat cafe in the story set in this world and I will not apologize for art!)
