This rec post is totally taking into account the fact that I am super lame and haven't gotten back to commenting or reading all the Hikago Day fics that were written. I promise to includes them in my next update, which *looks at recent trends* seems to be expected in June/July. ^^;; Oh, and one line summaries = love. *dies*

Rushes In 1/5 2/5 3/5 4/5 5/5 by Luce Red [livejournal.com profile] issen4 (drabbles, complete, shounen-ai, Ko Yong-ha/Hon Su-yon) Written for the drabble community [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove, this series beautifully showcases Yong-Ha and Su-Yon, some of the minor characters of Hikago. You don't learn much about them in the series, and Luce takes what you do know and makes fascinating character development out of it. Plus hotness! Musnt't forget that.

Twenty Diversions by [livejournal.com profile] assyrian (oneshot, meme, gen, Isumi) Hmmm, hard to categorize this piece. It reads like a mini fic with Isumi's thought and feeling of go and the go players around him, but at the same time, it's a wonderful insight of him as a person in general. This introspective Isumi is very attractive to read in any case.

Actually, igo players are mostly not the sort of people who outgrow believing in fairy tales, and perhaps this is why Isumi has noticed that Go players like to talk about the Hand of God

Two by [livejournal.com profile] nopejr (ficlet, shounen-ai, AkiraxHikaru) Author of Hikaru no Golf (which I believe I've recced before) [livejournal.com profile] nopejr answers the tough question of how Touya Akira can stand being around Hikaru.

Taboo by Ju [livejournal.com profile] reality_is (oneshot, AU, shouen-ai, OgataxAshiwara) Ashiwara tempts Ogata-sensei. Fantastic and the best use of a boys' love cliche ever written. ^_^

November 6, 2005 by Ju [livejournal.com profile] reality_is (oneshot, shouenen-ai, Hikaru, Akira) Drunk!Akira. That is all.

AkiHika 50 themes by [livejournal.com profile] umeko_pyon (drabbles, ongoing, shounen-ai AkiraxHikaru) So, I was going to recommend from [livejournal.com profile] umeko_pyon's list of themes individually, but I just went through them all today, and there's not a couple that I would want to recommend above the other. They're all wonderful. Some deal with Hikaru and Akira doing everday type activites, others are like perfectly executed expositions of the manga/anime. I just enjoyed reading all of them and I think everyone else would, too.

Ok, and here's a random quote from theme #3: Totteoki no (Reserved) -
October 17, 2001.

To Touya Akira, it was the date of their first game in two years.

To Shindo Hikaru, it was the date of their first game ever.

Both boys had expected it to be a significant milestone in their rivalry, but neither had anticipated the level of understanding that they would gain for each other.


Shogatsu by [livejournal.com profile] umeko_pyon (oneshot, gen, Hikaru, Akira,) Hikaru invites Akira to his house to celebrate New Years.

Others by [livejournal.com profile] umeko_pyon (ficlet, gen, Sai) Sai thinks about his relationship with Hikaru and what could have been.

Small Talk by [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden (oneshot, shounen-ai) Go professionals are good at small talk.

Thermostat by [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden (oneshot, yaoi, OgataxAshiwara) "Didn't we have this conversation already?" Ogata asked as he came in. Ashiwara and Ogata are being domestic after Ashiwara moves in. Well, doemstic for the two of them. Plus there's scorching hot sex.

Just Desserts by [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden (oneshot, crossover, Hikaru no Go/Antique Baker, shounen-ai) Touya Akira and Shindou Hikaru stumble upon the Antique Bakery.

Apparently, Pageboy agreed, and Ono's eyes widened a bit as he saw Pageboy freeze when Bleached-bangs sucked the errant custard off his fingertip. Well, well.

Ono was only a man. A really, really gay man. And it was his duty to encourage gay love between parties who were decidedly under his dating age limit. In short, it was time to take matters into his own hands.


A Hangover You Deserve and its sequel Aftermath by [livejournal.com profile] svz_insanity (complete, shounen-ai, Hikaru, Akira) Hikaru and Akira have an arguement with Hikaru having to retrieve a drunk Touya afterwards.

Train to Innoshima by [livejournal.com profile] aishuu (drabble, gen) No point spoiling a drabble, so everyone go read!

Metaphor by [livejournal.com profile] marksykins (oneshot, shounen-ai, Hikaru, Akira) It's kind of like they're the only ones in the room.

The Games of Wu by [livejournal.com profile] marksykins (oneshot, gen, Hikaru, Akira) I'm not sure how to recommend this fic. There's just so much character development and the interaction between Hikaru and Akira is way beyond what I can write down. There's go and Sai and just everything between Hikaru and Touya is beautiful here.

Bloodstone by K. Stonham aka K. Huntsman (complete, gen, Hikaru, Akira) If there are ghosts in the Hikaru no Go universe, might there not also be vampires? Hmm, I'm not sure what else to say that the author doesn't say in her trailer, but this is fantastic. Long and plotty, this deals beautifully with the idea of Hikaru and Akira being friends as well as rivals. Plus vampires! Ack, just ignore me and go read it!

Metonymy (The Ragin' Meijin Remix) by [livejournal.com profile] mousapelli (oneshot, shounen-ai, Hikaru, Akira) Four Meijin matches that Touya Akira doesn't win, and one that's still up for debate. Oh my, you all have to read this fic now. You have to read all the others, too, but after that (or before or in between) read this one. Just so clever with both great characterization of Hikaru and Akira and wonderful looks at their lives.

lol.
But speaking of recent trends, I think it'd be fun to analyse all the 'trends' of hikago fandom. :o

I don't think there's really any trends to the Hikago fandom just yet. I think the most you can say is that fanfic authors seem to be getting more adventurous in the fanodm: more willing to write AUs and take the characters in directions not explicitly stated in the series. This could just be authors maturing in their writing and handle of the series though. I'm not sure.

It's not like Hikago is like FMA or Death note for example, there's no new canon for fans to play with or grow with as the series progress. I guess since the series wasn't instantly popular when it was fansubbed, we don't have as much of a fandom growing with the series as other fandoms can boast.

Oh right.
I thought there were a lot of 'living together' kind of fics nowadays.
but I could be wrong of course.
I'm kinda high on beer so please excuse my spammage. :B

You're welcome :)

I'm glad I could point you to at least one fic you haven't read yet, since most authors are really good at crossposting.
