30 Days of Prince of Tennis - Day 26

Your favorite doujinshi/fanfiction
This is going to be a working progress and there was no way I would have been able to do this yesterday because I was so busy. I've read a lot of fanfics, but I'm really picky about what I really like. So the list will be a collection of ones that have stood out to me as well-written stories that really touch my heart or make me honestly laugh. I'm huge on word choice, balance between detail and subtlety, character interactions, plot development, pacing of emotions, and people being IN CHARACTER.

I'll have to read more doujinshi though... I've just recently found time to dive into some...

Descriptions... Coming later...

The first one that comes to mind is 39 C no Toroke Souna Hi. Plus Uso to Roman and Samurai Yellow.
All fantastic Platinum Pair ones. There are quite a few I've seen with spectacular art, but I can't read much Japanese, so I have no idea what they're saying. Will add to this list later.

Yeah I do. Sometimes I don't mind if it varies slightly (as long as the author makes it believable and that the characters actually know each other), but for the most part, Yagyuu is with Niou, Sanada is with Yukimura, Yanagi/Kirihara, and Tezuka/Fuji. The not-quite-so-canon pairings I like are Atobe/Oshitari and Shiraishi/Kenya.

I'm pretty open to Niou/Sanada, Yanagi/Yagyuu, and Kenya/Zaizen though.

What about you?

Derp derp... my brain must be really really dead.

*looks at list* Yeah, all of those fics are pretty much when they're still in Junior High and a few where they've graduated. Hmm, I think it's because I like exploring their world since it's what attracted me to them in the first place. I don't think I'm opposed to AU, but I haven't really read any either. I will probably go off of recommendations though for that category. :)

Whoa... 2xYagyuu/Niou does sound sexy! I wonder where the 2nd Yagyuu came from...? ^^

Ah, switching_it_up. I still need to find time to explore the fics there. I've gotten into a few on the most recent page, but I haven't checked out anything earlier. Will move that higher on my list of things to do!!

OMG - I want a dream like that!! I've never dreamed about fictional characters before... *hopes for one now* I'll let you know if it ever happens :)

Oh man.. Inui/Yanagi potions sound like a scary thing indeed. xD

Aw, thanks for liking those two fics of mine!

For doujinshi, have you read After Blue? That one's my favorite Yagyuu&Niou doujinshi about how they become partners. I also like Negahyst's D1 doujinshi. For crack, Satoumizu is pretty awesome. (Satoumizu does mostly Tezuka/Fuji, Atobe/Oshitari, Sanada/Yukimura. Satoumizu makes fun of Sanada a whole lot).
Mar. 9th, 2011 11:36 pm (UTC)
No, I haven't read After Blue. I have read some Negahyst, but I don't remember too well so I didn't put it on the list yet. I think (maybe?) that I've seen Satoumizu, but it was probably really recent and I've been mentally drained... But I love all of those pairings!!

And of course, I love those two fics of yours. I like quite a few of your other fics, but those really stood out in my memory. ^^

Oh, my fic is here too? :3 Thank youuuu :)
Even in my opinion it totally doesn't fulfil your conditions at all :D

I read one awesome fic, about Platinum, it's damn long (40 000 words), but it's awesome and I will finish it sooner than you can realize :D
(here if you are interested http://community.livejournal.com/switching_it_up/17188.html#cutid1)
It HAS plot, very interesting a bit mysterious but nice one :D It will make you laugh, worried, laugh, it'S precisely written, and description of characters are cool :D It has everything :DD

To doujinshi's, I have bunch of doujinshi's in my computer also todokanai and community.livejournal.com/devil_mode here are a lot of doujinshis, plus pot_djs has a lot of doujin :DD I love dj from Sakura Sakuya, or, I guess she is colled somehow like this? :D She drew Samurai Yellow and White, and a lot of known doujinshis :D

You're very welcome :) I had read it a few weeks before I got a LJ (on ff.net) and I really liked it. For me, on top of everything I'm picky about, I like exploring a character's psychology - how they work, how they view themselves, how they view others... I just like getting into the minds of people (most likely because I feel that if I truly understand them, then as a teacher, I can reach to them in the best possible way).

It's interesting also because a few months ago, I wrote out a drabble (it's not posted) about chess pieces and Hyotei. Our choices were fairly the same, but I had a few differences here and there. I should get that out sometime and clean it up to post.

Cool - thanks for the link. I have not really explored the AU realm, but friend recommendations are great for that sort of thing because I usually don't know where to start. Will add it to my list!

I left a comment for devil_mode to add me, but they haven't gotten around to it yet :( Hopefully soon! Still just getting into the world of doujinshi, but it's probably going to have to take a backseat until summer. Got to get my life set first since I'll be graduating in a month and a half. (OMG I just realized how close that is). O.O
Mar. 19th, 2011 07:17 am (UTC)
Lol, really, you wrote about chess and Hyotei? 8DD Cool :D Let me see it someday :)

AU is cool, even I prefer the real life, followed by psychologist, mysterious and criminal problems 8DD If it's mixed together, it's the best :DD
To another AU fics, this author wrote some: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/36250/Link_and_Luigi
Remote and Remote 2: Rerun 8DDD It's something hilarious, even you won't find there some psychological points, it's more crack, with easy plot, but it will make you laugh :DD Also almost all characters are there, Seigaku, Hyotei, Rikkai, Fudomine, in sequel I guess they are een complete :D This fic is great recipe for better mood :D They travel through universes ... Mary Sue, Harry Potter, Pirate, Fairy Tale, Tarzan, whatever you can imagine :DD)

And to doujinshis, here some more links :3
A lot of crack :D
She had a guide post there ut I can't find it now, but if you go through tags, you will find a lot of DJ :D hundred? More? :D I don't know, I read there AkaBun, Silver, school crack :D

Graduating in month and half? o_O So fast, good luck then! :) (Mmmm, two years to go to graduate from high school :D Damn, why is high school here longer than in any other country? :DDD That'S not fair! :D)
Mar. 19th, 2011 11:03 pm (UTC)
How long is high school for you?

People finish college at different times. A "normal" degree is four years. A more advanced degree (because certain majors require a lot of specialty classes) can take 5 or 6 years. Music education is typically a 5 year degree if you don't want to completely stress yourself out. And for me, it was 5 years :)

I'm looking forward to graduating and going to do what I've been wanting to do since 8th grade (that's... ten years ago omg). But I will definitely miss my friends here and comfortable I am with the School of Music *bittersweet*
Mar. 20th, 2011 05:27 pm (UTC)
High school is long 4 years :D In a lot of contries, it's long only three years, so :DD With a 5-6 final exams at the end :DD But well xD So what :D

Wow, so something like, you are going to fulfil your dream? :) that's nice 8D

Also to following comment, Remote is cool and I also read her/their Four or Five (that made me to love Marui and later Rikkai :DD) or...another one long fic, yes, In which there is no tennis :D Quite a crack, it is read quite fastly :D
Mar. 19th, 2011 11:12 pm (UTC)
It was actually about which pieces Hyotei and Rikkai were and something about them getting into a match against each other. But I don't think I ever decided on a winner or anything... it was more about characterization, but I plan to make it into a short oneshot of chess battle.

And thank you for all of the links. The Remote one looks hilarious - I will definitely add it to my list since the chapters are short and it looks like I'll be able to handle the crack of it.
