Summary: Hikaru's father, on the subject of his son.
Why: I'm kind of a sucker for stories that look at the characters I love from an outside perspective, so it's probably no surprise that I was interested in a story from the point of view of Hikaru's father, a man who I have absolutely no memory of in the actual series. And such it's such a good story, it should also be no surprise that I'm reccing it now. Betula does a great job of showing the way that we're sometimes blind to the things that are closest to us. I loved the realization of Hikaru's father of just how much he doesn't know about his son. Even more than that, I love the reaction that he has to this revelation. I only wish we could have seen something like this in the actual series.

Summary: "Why did they put us all together?" Waya says, setting out his futon. There's not masses of space, so it's pretty much next to Hikaru's. "We're seasoned pros! We should get our own rooms."
Why: This story treads the line of melodrama and if it was for another pairing, I might not have recced it. However, I haven't seen a lot of this threesome, which is a shame because I'm completely intrigued by it. So I'm reccing this in the interest of anyone else out there who also wants to see more of these three boys together. It's a good story with some nice interactions, great for scratching that elusive Akira/Hikaru/Waya itch. It may occasionally step over the line to too much teenage angst, then again, maybe not. It all depends on your tolerance for that kind of thing.

Summary: Tennis and go don't have very much in common.
Why: This is crossover genius. Every single part of this fic makes me happy, from Inui's attempts to use data go to Hikaru's bemused horror at Akira's sudden interest in tennis to Atobe's amazing reaction to it all. :D

Summary: "So, you don't think your relationship with Touya 4-dan will interfere with your playing?"
Why: The basic premise is that Hikaru finds out that a whole bunch of people have jumped to the conclusion that Akira and Hikaru are in a relationship. Hikaru proceeds to freak out...and then figure a few things out. The highlight of this story is definitely the interplay between Akira and Hikaru. There are some really great lines, plus some nice emotional depth later on. A very well-done and enjoyable story.

Summary: Touya Akiko reveals a few home truths.
Why: Hee! I really kind of love the idea of Akira's mom talking to girls for him and letting them down somewhat gently when they develop these crushes on her son. I also liked this just as a glimple of the Touya family life, which must be a strange place considering the obsessions of the males, and how Akiko holds it all together for them. Such a cute story.

Summary: Hikaru and Touya attend a school for gifted youngsters to train them for an alien invasion. A school on a space station.
Why: I know. It's a really odd crossover at first glance. Hikaru and company at Battle School? Weird. However, the author does a great job of linking the two fandoms. I really bought the characterizations of everyone, and it felt like they all just slid seamless into the Ender's Game universe.

Summary: Hikaru must get stronger if he wants to keep Akira as his rival. After all, a jounin can't have a genin as his rival.
Why: When I first saw this, I had to click just out of sheer curiosity. A Hikaru no Go and Naruto crossover? How in the world does that work? Well, it works pretty nicely, to tell the truth. Rather than a crossover, I would actually call this a fusion. It takes Hikaru and Akira and puts them into the setting of Naruto. I liked this because of the way that it transposes the characters and circumstances of Hikaru no Go into Naruto's terms. The story isn't long, but it's very nicely done. If you're a fan of both series, like me, think for a second about Akira and Hikaru as ninja, and then click the link.
