Hikago fandom - a 5-minute primer.

i was recently told that I made some sort of Hikaru no Go fic primer for those of you who were just getting into the fandom and wanting to know where to go for fic.

I vaguely remember this post, but I just searched through five months worth of posts (why so much Yamapi spam, Aja, why?) and I couldn't find it, so I figured it was as good an excuse as any to make a new post, properly tagged and sourced this time. Especially since, for some reason that I suspect has to do with Dorrie, I've been repeating the following information a lot over the last 4 days.


Where to go:
  • My fic recs in my memories, because they are the best :>
  • toko's Frankenpost, which basically hits the high points and covers all aspects of the fandom
  • svz_insanity's memories because she has tons of fics
  • best_of_hikago - sadly no longer updated, but if you need to read ravenously without a terribly high quality filter, it is the place to go. i love that journal, i wish it were still active. :(
  • issen4 - she recs more frequently than anybody else in the fandom. Not always as vetted for quality as toko's recs, but very reliable.
  • blind_go - the archives will have a ton of stuff of variable quality.

    Must-read authors:
    thehoyden (EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING by her)
    arboretum (EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING by her, especially "A Resolution of Territory," which I BETA'D :D :D :D :D :D and which is hands-down the best fic in the fandom, and did I mention read everything by Eddy cause she's amazing? okay. <3)
    mousapelli's Akira/Hikaru - and of course mirabellawotr's
    murinae for gen fic and harukami and flonnebonne for humor - especially harukami's truth or dare fic adsklf, and murinae's fantastic fucking hikago AU. and i normally hate AU but oh my god this one is thrilling. Oh, and I really think the God of Go drabble Flonne wrote for my prompt the other day is an instant classic.

    That's pretty much it. Oh, and:

  • the Hikago tag on delicious. Which you should all be contributing to, because this fandom always, always needs more love/fic/etc.

    All of my Hikaru no Go fic is in my memories.

    Oh, and if you're just starting out, let me issue my habitual PSA, and remind you to read the manga. all of it. :D
