Characters: Akira/Hikaru
Length/Type: One-shot (approx. 1500 words), Humor, Romance

Summary: They say some people view the world from a stain-glassed window. Touya views it from the perspective of a goban. So when his territory is threatened, he attacks.

I love fics that leave me grinning and satisfied by the end of it, and this is one of them. :) Go puns with a hilarious use of Go terms to describe Akira's feelings towards Hikaru - a bit crack-ish and so very fitting in that geeky Akira way.

Do note that the author includes a list of Go terms with their definitions at the top of the fic, and unless you know the game well, you're likely going to need to refer to the list often. It could be annoying for some, but give it a try - I think it actually has its own charms, a bit like reading the fic in Akira-Hikaru code and I was privy to its tickling secrets because I had the answer sheet. :D

Story: Playing By the Rules [Rating: PG] - by Schnickledooger ([ profile] schnickledoogr2 on LJ)

The worst part about this new state of affairs though is that Shindou remains completely oblivious that everyone has an alternative agenda besides playing Go and that he is letting himself be led blindly into atari like a lamb to the slaughter. It's horrible when Touya realizes that everyone seems to be laughing at him for missing joban and now it's almost too late to enter their semeai, but he must find some way to join the race because Shindou is his eternal rival and he'll be damned if he lets anyone else take over his fuseki.
