Someone rec me some good wallpaper links. As long as it is good, I don't have any preference on series.


There are so many talented people on lj. I'd feel so inadequate if these same talented people weren't providing me with really awesome fics ^__^


[ profile] darkeyedwolf, [ profile] ceresi and [ profile] rayemars write some of the best Naruto fanfics out there. [ profile] darkeyedwolf is writing BELIEVABLE Kakashi/Sasuke fics. I kid you not. In addition, she make me laugh soooooooo hard.

[ profile] rayemars is working on an epic post!Sasuke leaves Konoha piece that's leaving me hyperventilating on the floor 'cos I FEAR for the future of Sasuke and Naruto (you'll need to troll through her lj for the pieces).

And [ profile] ceresi writes some unbelievably haunting pieces that's almost fairytale like (if your fairytale had sewn shut eyes and circus, which is what it is like in touch the parade). All her fics are in the memories section or on [ profile] in_my_notebook. Read Stolen.

Hikaru no Go

Read EVERYTHING by [ profile] issen4. I'll comment on her fics eventually *crosses fingers* as soon as I'm coherent enough to stop fangirling. You can find her HnG fics at her Ficlog under Current Writings. Specifically check out 'Shadows of a Voice' and 'All Strides Lengthen in a Race'.

My obsession with Hiakru no Go seem to have become full blown, again. Need to get the English scanlations off someone, the later chapters becomes too hard to follow with the amount of go commentaries. Also need to get the anime off someone. Need to re-watch the series.

Re-read Jigo by Dracostella, and have come to the conclusion that it's my favourite fanfiction in any fandom. If I can ever only re-read one piece of fiction over and over again I would pick Jigo. Everytime I re-read it I discover something new. This is the ultimate fic for me.

And I just have to scream this out: Hikaru and Akira is the OTP!!!

Reccing fics and ep 75 of POT

All anime fic recs. Enjoy.

Prince of Tennis

[ profile] jennifier_d's POT fics are wonderful. I love, I love, I love. She can write such a wonderful Fuji; Deuce, Chase and other Fuji fics can be found on her site; Blackfeathers. And while her Fuji is truly amazing I must say I love Captain's Pride and Words the most. The first deals with Tezuka/Atobe, and while Atobe's character is slightly off (just slightly). The premise, the feelings and the words of this fic make me want to breathe in the story and not let go.

There are so many parts I love in this fic but if I have to choose I would choose this;

He was hurt, and like all hurt animals, he simply wanted to curl
in on himself and let the world wash over him like an endless
tide. But he couldn't. His pride demanded that he stand up again.
His vanity made him take care of himself. His ego made him prove
to the others that nothing could take him down. Nothing short of

He was strong.

Now, he wished he was stronger.

The latter fic is Shinji and Ryoma and all of their mutual quirks. It's unbelievably funny and CUTE. She have their characterisation perfect. To give you people an idea of the fic;

Finally, Ryoma, who seemed to have thought of something, started
smirking. "Okay, I will buy the new roll."

"Oh, good. I was going to buy it if you didn't volunteer. Since
you have volunteered, that makes things easier. I don't
understand why you're so reluctant to buy a new roll of grip
tape. It's just grip tape after all..." Pause. "Oh, I know, he
must be trying to trick me into buying the tape so that he won't
have to buy it. Ahh... you're such a pain... You tried to do the
same thing the other time..."

"Mada mada dane."

"...should have known better than to do that. It is not going to
work on me anymore... You are too arrogant. Freshmen are not
supposed to be enjoying life like this. You don't know what
you're asking for. Should have more common sense..."

You get the picture. It's just so funny.

Myth720's fics are good. They are -really- good. I'm stunned by how wonderful they are *jumps up and down* Read 'Predilection first.

Leah Aute's Strange Rooms' only have one chapter out. But it's a long chapter (over 10000 words) and I WANT to know what happens NEXT!

X-parrot's fics are in character. And believe me that is -very- rare in the Saiyuki fandom. Her first Saiyuki fic 'And Miles to Go' is more adventure friven but me thinks her new effort is gonna be angst, angst, angst.

Hikaru no Go
As far as I'm concerned Dracostella's - Jigo is the best Hikago fic. Ever.

K. Huntsman's Hikago fics are beautiful. The firs in her unnamed series His Name, followed by Evanescence and then "Secrets

Ju's fics are a pleasure to read. Often light and fun. And humour can be so hard to get right.

Shimizu Hitomi should write more Hikago fics. Her few Hikago fics make me want to buy her offerings so she'd write more.

Aishuu's fics are good. Although I think there's room for improvement.

Was debating whether to rec HP fics, decided it'd be a waste of time considering most of you have probly already read them by now. Beside the recs should keep you people busy for at least two days.

Moving on. Finally watched ep 75 of POT. What can I say.... TEZUKA, YOU'RE SO COOL!! He's so awesome. Oh wow, he's just unbelievable. And I will -never- snicker at the Tezuka Zone again. Ever. I promise. Cross my heart and all the rest. While I wish they followed the manga in how Tezuka left (and how evil Oishi truly is) I'm -really- happy with episode 75. I *hearts*

Despite my raving about Tezuka he is -not- favourite character in POT. He's not. Really. I guarantee it. Honest. Well, okay, he's climbing the ladder but he's not my favourite character. He's not.... this might be what they call denial.

Now I'm gonna go and get some sleep.

Misc. fic recs

Realised I have been meaning to rec a few fics for a very long time now, and I kept on forgetting. Well, I have stopped forgetting, and here they are;

Hikaru no Go

Jigo by Dracostella

Love this fic, this is the epitome of HnG fic for me. Love it, love it, love it. Subtle and intricate. It's all the more wonderful as the author actually knows go. It's about Akira after the death of his father, it's about Hikaru maturing, it's about forcing a draw in life. I have read this fic so many times, and it can still make me think.

Detective Conan

Read ALL the Detective Conan fics done by Ysabet, especially 'Second Wind', and it's sequel 'Windfall'. LOVE it, LOVE it. You might want to read 'The Window' and 'The Longest Hour', which are prequels to the above two fics. It'll give you a back story as to why Ran is the way she is now and just how the situation have gotten so, well, interesting and fun. Her fics are funny and plot driven, and while she concentrates on the characters, solving the cases is still important to her stories, 'cos you know that's why Conan's mind is fun.

Wild Adapter

Stay Here With by Timmonsgray. Awesome fic. Kubota and Tokitoh's first meeting and the changes that happen because of it. She captures the characters perfectly. I NEED more of this. I NEED more. While you're there, you might also like to check out all of her 'Wild Adapter' fics ^__^


Sunfreak's Naruto fics are good. They range from the silly to angst. All of it true to the characters. I especially like 'Thrice', no one is reduntant here, and the three young heroes click.
