It’s probably no surprise to you all that I love a meta. Meta-fics are extremely fun to read, IMO. And this one? It is also well written and delicious, down deep the pining end and with all of the best and worst things on tumblr. Special: bouquet of roses.  Enjoy!

OhMyGod! This was actually adorable! Seeing Merlin and Arthur as two sides of Tumblr; one as the really popular blog and the other not so popular; really makes me heart go all fluttery inside! I’d never thought of Arthur as the one who would make the GIFS and photoshops but somehow it suits him. A must read for anyone who needs a little cutsy fic to read!

Out of five stars I give this story:

★★★☆☆

Hello:) Sorry for popping up out of nowhere, but I read your recent Hikago fic recs text post in the tag - thank you for that! I wanted to ask you if there is an alternative link for the third fic you mentioned, with Sai coming to Touya in his dreams? I can't make it work for me, unfortunately:(

Oh snap, I need to go fix that then, thanks!

Here’s a direct link to Sailor Mac’s works. That one in particular is Balance. There are more on her site as you can see.

And here, you can also go through my Memories on my LJ (ah, good ole LJ, haven’t seen you in years). I have a TON of Hikago fics stored there. I think some sadly have been deleted or purged, but most still work.

I recommend these first. They are simply gorgeous and well-written!

Making the Moves

And I really do love funny, crack-ish Hikago fics so here are some

Memoirs of a Go Player pt 1

Memoirs of a Go Player pt 2

I LOVE LOVE  LOVE this HNG AU called Hikaru’s Phoenix. The author is harumi on LJ. She has more chapters of the above fic on there. Go there if you want to read more of it!

And YOU MUST check out answer-key.livejournal.com It’s where all the Blind Go rounds and fills are posted and as you can see the community is still very much active, hooray!

Crap, I still have a ton more I could rec, but that would take forever to list. Ok, happy reading everyone!

OMG YES! IT'S A LOT LIKE SEI/SUB'S RELATIONSHIP! HANNIBAL IS PRETENDING TO BE WILL'S FRIEND THOUGH HE'S SECRETLY THE KILLER THAT WILL IS LOOKING FOR, DECEIVING WILL LIKE SEISHIROU DECEIVED THE SUMERAGI TWINS. AND LIKE SEISHIROU, PERHAPS HE'S TAKING HIS TIME TRYING TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT HE'LL BECOME CAPABLE OF TRULY CARING FOR WILL. IF HE CAN'T THEN HE KILLS HIM, IF HE CAN, THEN HE GIVES HIM THE GIFT OF HIS LEGACY. WHOA WHAT.

THANK YOU CLAMP FOR SHOWING US THE LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF OUR TIME SO OUR SOULS WON’T BE EMOTIONALLY SCARRED A SECOND TIME!

Okay, a bit out of left field, but the other day I was remembering this HnG fanfic I read where Hikaru never played go publicly, he became a soccer player, but then it came out that he liked go, so to give go more publicity, they set up an interview, but the pro go players were all like, "Great, we have to put up with this stupid jock." But then actually he was good and the fic wasn't finished and I have no idea what happened to that fic, SORRY DO YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW OF IT I AM CURIOUS NOW.

OH GUUUUUUUUUUUURLLLL, DON’T GET ME STARTED ON MY FAV HIKAGO FICS, MUWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Found it in less than a minute. Pretty sure, you’re looking for this one

You also might enjoy this one. It’s beautifully written, finished, an AU where Sai comes back somehow with a real body and Ogata finds him first and he realizes after a game of go that ‘omg, this is SAI!’

And read Balance too. It’s really long. Sai comes in dreams to Touya and reveals his past and how he met Hikaru, Touya and Shindou begin a relationship other than rivalry (it’s not friendship either muwahahaha) and some photographer snaps a photograph. What’s really fun though is that it garners a lot of attention to the Go world and so the Go Institute isn’t sure whether to outraged by this scandal or thankful.

Here’s a cute lil Hikago crack one I adore.

I GOT A TON MORE (but they’re on Livejournal and some don’t have a masterpost of links, so if you want anymore, just tell me^^)

Also, I gotta say. I have a feeling you probably ship Gareki/Nai, but tbh I must confess to being a Yogi/Gareki shipper.... XD

Multi-ship, multi-shipper! XP Of course I ship Gareki/Nai first. And I expect to see some EPIC Kanda/Allen, Shion/Nezumi, Kuro/Shiro (Project K) fanart with the new white/black haired duo! X3 I ship Gareki/Yogi second with Gareki/Nai/Yogi O3P third! OH YES, I’M FLEXIBLE!
