Fanfic Recs: Initial D
Proof that the remaining 10% worth running down the mountain at 180 kph for is here. These are recommendations made by Tropers for Initial D fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here. You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be. Do warn when a fanfic may head into non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.
General FicsDreaming of Akina by Sanae
- Recommended by Gunbazca
- Status: Completed
- Synopsis: Ever wondered how Bunta Fujiwara became a racing legend, met Takumi's mother and what happened to her?
- Comments: A long one, clocked at 86 chapters and a bit over 353,000 words. An epic story detailing Bunta's late high school years, his involvement in racing, and his tumultuous love-life. Very rich and lovingly detailed, especially the cars the racers (and 'civilian') uses are mostly well-researched, as expected from an Initial D fan. This fic also mixes moments of awesome, heartwarming, and tearjerkers very well in equal measures. This story is also very faithful to canon despite large numbers of original characters introduced to fill the gaps Shuichi Shigeno left in the canon.
