You should read: Currents in the Cake by [ profile] garlandgraves, Prince of Tennis, MomoKai.

It's a late birthday gift for me and it's one of those gifts that is that much sweeter because I get to share it with you. Garland, it's so lovely, you're so lovely, thank you again, so much. ♥

The story builds from this scene, which is my absolute favourite Momo-Kaidoh moment in the whole series, anime and manga.

It's just after Tezuka's big announcement. Momo and Kaidoh are standing by the wall, watching the other boys in their year play basketball. They are so clearly standing together for comfort, but far enough apart that they could deny it. And Garland takes it from there.

The story is beautifully characterized and sweetly funny and the Momo-Kaidoh interaction is subtle and believable. Go, read, comment, love.
prillalar: Ryoma Echizen, looking cute (ryoma)
I gathered these links for a comment and thought I might as well flip them here too. These are the Ryoma Schools AU stories from earlier this year:

Victory Road by [ profile] trinityhelix. Ryoma at Fudomine.

Champions by [ profile] assyrian. Ryoma at Rikkai.

Firestarter by [ profile] storyteller. Ryoma at Yamabuki.

King by, well, me, [ profile] prillalar. Ryoma at Hyotei.

I would love to see some more of these. I nagged [ profile] lysapadin a bit about doing St Rudolph. (Come on, you know you want to!) And I really want to see Ryoma at Rokkaku. I think he'd fit in really well there.
