Here's the first part of that Hikaru no go/Battle Royale fic I've been writing. I figured I should put it up somewhere, after wasting all that time with it... ^^; For now, the fic resides here in my writing journal, even though I'm not sure if there's much audience at all for a fic like this among my f-list… I might some day post it to my ff.net account too, but this requires that I a) figure out a title for this, b) remember my password, c) fix certain parts that totally do need fixing...
I wonder what it is with me and strange crossovers, anyway. Yugioh/Solaris, Death Note/Mononoke, and now this... I'm pretty sure that the Hikaru no go/Princes Tutu one will remain unwritten, though. (ETA: Hahah! And now it, too, is written! xD) Well, whatever. At least this one is finally finished and won't be eating my time anymore. Hopefully. Unless I start editing this... Characters:
Mainly from Hikago (Hikaru and Akari... note: I said Akari, not Akira – though Touya's in this too, of course, and where there is Hikaru, there is Sai...) The only ones from BR to make short appearances are Kiriyama, Kitano and Mimura. And then there are some OC's who mainly exist to be killed off. Poor buggers.Timeline:
this takes place just a bit before that new first dan certification/award distributing ceremony thingy, whatever it's officially called (and by the way, if anyone knows exactly when that ceremony takes place, I'd be grateful for that piece of information. I'm guessing (hoping) some time in (late?) March, but I couldn't find anything definite.
In other words, they're just about to finish the eighth grade. (In BR verse, I guess they should be in the ninth year, but that didn't quite work for Hikago timeline, so eighth year it is.) I've also taken some freedoms as on who is on the same class as Hikaru – for example, though he and Akari were in the same class in grade school, they apparently aren't anymore in the junior high, but... artistic license, you know. PG-13
, I guess, for some language and violence... though this isn't as bloody and violent as Battle Royale, and I hope it makes more sense.(Because seriously, Battle Royale might be a good movie, but it makes no sense whatsoever. "Oh, the youth today really are difficult, skipping school and not respecting adults, what should we do? Hey, I know, let's take a group of ninth graders to an abandoned island and have them kill off each other! That surely solves all problems this world's facing." I mean… huh?)( Chapter 1 )Next chapter
