Summary: Together the Seigaku tennis team lived over five hundred years.

Quite different from the usual Prince of Tennis fics out there, this one is a collection of short snippets on how each of the Seigaku regulars died. All of them are impacting in their own way - some quite sad, others play off of each other. What I love about it is also how a lot of these snippets actually tell a larger story without ever coming right out to say it clearly - but it leaves you thinking about it even after you're done reading. It's one of those stories that felt sadder in hindsight than while reading, I think. ;_;

Author's Summary: In his third year of high school, they stopped calling him a genius.

Simple, poignant. Fuji, here, is oh so painful to read. I especially like the way the author manages to evoke this feeling without ever shoving it in your face - you know, the kind where the author doesn't have to tell you how to feel because the story itself does it so well. Part of it, I think, is also because I can totally imagine the possibilities of things turning out this way... and it just makes me go, Oh, Fuji.
