Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Characters: Shishido Ryou, Ootori Choutarou, Shishido/Ootori, Hyoutei
Length/Type: Multi-chapter (2 parts, approx. 12,780 words), may actually be considered as Gen

Summary: When Shishido Ryou loses his regular spot on the tennis team, he turns to Ohtori Choutarou for help. This is where they started, but not where they will end.

To quote the author, "This is the Silver Pair when they weren't the Silver Pair. This is them when they were Shishido Ryou and Ohtori Choutarou." And she does it so wonderfully. ;_; I love well-done "behind the scenes" type of fics, the ones that show all the missing scenes and thoughts that go into making something we mostly only see the result of in canon. Here, we get to watch Shishido's journey from his fall from the Hyoutei regulars to how he climbs back up. Not only does it cover how his friendship with Choutarou was built, but it also goes into other details that are often taken for granted, like how he ends up playing Taki in an attempt to win his spot back, etc.

This is Silver Pair at its best when they were still just teammates and how their friendship grew from Shishido's ordeal. A huge part of what makes the fic great is her Shishido - she writes him so very well. And, also, the way her Shishido sees Choutarou. *loves*

Author's Summary: Missing moments from the time skip.

15 brief glimpses into various characters during the time skip - I love how these little snippets made me pause every so often, imagining all the bits that weren't said. Not all of them are equally thought-provoking (rightly so for some characters), but as a whole, it's like a mini-fic that feels much larger.
