Works in Progress:

Unexpected:As a first-year, watching Rikkai Dai win the finals in the National Tournament, Tachibana Kippei is captivated by Yukimura. A year later, a star tennis player himself, he challenges him to a match, knowing he has no chance of winning. After that first meeting, they go their separate ways, and confront their own challenges. They will meet again in the most surprising circumstances, when cocky loner Tachibana has become the leader of his own team, and Yukimura's perfect world has been shattered by despair. Neither of them can guess what will come of that meeting: the boundary between love and hate is all too thin. Tachibana/Yukimura, for fanfic100.

Il Suono di Cuore: More of an ongoing story collection than an actual fic. An AU where music replaces tennis, and the boys are spread among various public, private, and performing arts high schools.


Completed (of significance):

Out of Defeat: Shishido, new to the Hyotei regulars, has disgraced himself and his team by losing to Fudoumine's Tachibana. His desire to regain his honor, or even his place on the team, brings him into conflict with the regular who takes his place, Otori Choutarou. (18 chapters)

Towards Victory: Epilogue to Out of Defeat, Oshitari POV.

Vanish, Appear: Three years ago Atobe left Japan without a word. Now, he has returned for a three day visit to Sanada's university. Sanada doesn't know how to react. Will they be able to untangle the complicated ties that still bind them after so much time? Sanada/Atobe (one-shot)

Old and New Games: Post-apocalyptic AU. The world Yukimura knew was destroyed ten years ago by war and fire. Since then, he and his ragged band have struggled to survive, constantly traveling in search of a new home. When they stop for the summer in an abandoned settlement, a strange discovery forces Yukimura to confront his own despair and Sanada's increasingly odd behavior. Sanada/Yukimura, slight Yanagi/Yukimura, Rikkai ensemble.

The River Iteru: AU. Tezuka is a famous soldier and general, one of the rulers of Alba. Instead of governing or waging war, he has spent the last four years in Ptolemeia, in the arms of the beautiful Pharaoh, Fuji. When Tezuka defies Atobe, to whom he owes his allegiance, he and Fuji must make the final choice between duty and desire. Tezuka/Fuji, based on Shakespeare's play Antony and Cleopatra.

I also have written a variety of other shorter oneshots for Prince of Tennis and Saiyuki which you will find below or (more likely) on my livejournal.
