lindra has written two amazing Fuji-centric Tezuka/Ryoma ficlets, and I love them, and they are such rich character studies. The Fuji-matchmakes trope has gotten lots and lots of people on my friends list thinking about him, it seems, and the results are wonderful - all of which you must must read if you love Fuji. There seems to be this trend of exploring Fuji's character through TezuRyo without shortchanging either the intensity of their relationship or the fascination of Fuji's role in it. I am really, really enjoying them all.
I could not possibly love this fic more. I could not possibly love this pairing more. Chiya makes my heart hurt in the best way imaginable when she writes them playing tennis together. :((
And one final rec: bringtheballs.
And this, folks? This is what happens when Harry Potter fans invade fandom: The Prince of Tennis newsletter. At the moment, it appears to be highly subjective and highly flammable - contains massive doses of squee.
I am over the moon at fandom today. Seriously.

Unrelatedly, sdalkfj;ds holy shit Tezuka is eleven inches taller than Ryoma. I mean. I knew "28 cm" was in fact a whole twenty-eight centimeters, but it never really hit me til just now. oh my goodness, that's tall. Tezuka is tall! )Is it even possible for a fourteen year old to be eleven inches taller than anything? This boggles my mind.) And, of course, it makes me want fic about their height difference. Delicious fic about all the ways Ryoma fits into the nooks and crannies of Tezuka's spaces like no one else can, because he is just that small. 11 inches. Even if Ryoma grows he's still going to be like half a foot shorter than Tezuka. This is delightful. ♥
