This fic gives me so many feelings! *________* I remember when Aishuu posted the first chapter and I was so hooked. I used to check for updates obsessively! But overtime that dropped off ’cause I was hoping that the next time I came around to reread it, it would be complete! Sadly, that is not the case, but at least there were a couple more chapters to read! Too bad it just made me want more more more, LOLOL.
Anyways, what I love about this fic is that it’s so captivating! I really love the type of AUs that make a slight change from canon and run with it. My heart kinda breaks for Shindou since he went so long being just him and Sai — it’s just sad that he didn’t have anyone from the go world to hang out with all that time. (Also Touya being rival-less for so long without Shindou!) Basically, this fic is awesome and you should read it even if it’s unfinished and hasn’t been updated since 2009. On another note, are there any good LONG (and finished!) HnG fics out there? Because I love long fics and I think this is the longest HnG I’ve read and it’s not even done. =/
