Tags: incomplete, dead fic (Last updated 03-10-09)
Synopsis: Shindou Heihachi is a retired Go pro, his nephew Fujiwara Sai is a 9-dan, but his grandson Hikaru is a delinquent with a fear of winning in Go. The funny thing is, there's no name for it. So how could he be afraid of something that hasn't been categorized?
Synopsis: Shindo Hikaru was brought up by his grandfather in a remote countryside where he met Fujiwara no Sai, a former go player under reclusion. After his grandfather and Sai's death, he went back to Tokyo, carrying with him a knowledge of go that was far beyond his imagination.
Synopsis: "No more excuses. No more self pity," insisted his grandfather, not unkindly, but sternly. "It's just a 19x19 board. A miniature world. If you can conquer your fears here, the real world is nothing. Just focus."
Synopsis: Sai wakes up to find everything he'd gone through to be a dream. He is a professional Go player that has already conquered the top players - but he finds himself missing what he had in his dreams. It may not have been what Sai had expected, but Hikaru was bound to him by fate - and Sai will have that connection again, even if he has to forge it himself.
Pairing(s): Some Akira/Hikaru, but that's not the focus of the fic
Warnings: This a dark fic dealing with extremely distubing things like child prostitution and mentions of rape.
Synopsis: AU. Sai just wants to play Go. To do so, he needs Shindou Hikaru - a street-smart kid involved in the local crime syndicate who is more concerned with making ends meet than playing games. For both to survive, they may just have to compromise...
Synopsis: Shindou Hikaru's life went soccer, girls, soccer, video games, soccer. After his fateful game with Touya, elusive Korean players and memories that never happened to him begin to overwhelm him-and amidst it all, a newfound passion for go is awakened.
