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

Author's Summary: Hikaru's father, on the subject of his son.

Throughout watching/reading Hikago, I had always wondered what Hikaru's parents thought about what their son was doing, so discovering this fic was a bit of a "OMG so glad I found this!!" feeling. I pounced on it, and it didn't disappoint. It's a quiet piece that takes place some time after the series ended (I think). Quite lovely, and a great look into Hikaru's person from his father's (and through him, his mother's) point of view.
