Fanfic hikago/ouran xover.
Title: 21 shades of red (and three green)
Category: Crossover, Gen, Humour.
Summary: Wait, you thought go-players were crazy?
Authors Note: Crossover with Ouran and Hikaru no go.
More of a Hikago focus but you can see cameos by almost all of the main characters.
To see the original version (with more explicit references to the song... Can't believe I wrote another songfic. Well sorta. D:) which was written for the LiveJournal Community Blind(underscore)Go - please go see; answer-key(dot)livejournal(dot)com/42854.h
THIS, is the better version though.
All ten of the themes http://community.livejournal.com/blindg
This version has more scenes (close to 1000 words more) than the original, and has been smoothed out quite a bit!
Akira frowned, just as his mobile phone began to ring. It felt like an ill omen. Except after the phone call had ended, he couldn't help but feel that his earlier feelings were ridiculous and out of place. It was just a simple request for his skills as a go professional - an ambassador for the game.
It was fairly common for go professionals that until they earned a major title, to take on jobs teaching and demonstrating go to others. Akira considered himself fortunate in that he was able to pick and choose his own jobs carefully. If he had moved out of his parents household, he would have found it necessary to pick up more work, in order to keep his own independence. Fortunately, current circumstances allowed him to save money, which was necessary if he was to be able to learn how to drive - driving lessons were not cheap, and petrol prices were continuously rising as Ogata frequently complained.
The current job however was one that he would normally have not accepted. The reasoning for this was threefold. For a start it wasn't easy to travel to and though Akira was fortunate to being able to carpool with Ogata frequently it was not something that he wished to become dependent upon. The second was that it was set in a high school, Akira frequently had trouble related to his own age group, and this job was given the description of "conversation go", with the instructions that the games should be kept towards light and fun. The third reason was something that Akira found difficult to pinpoint exactly - but it was a sneaking suspicion that this job involved a giant joke that he wasn't part of, the reasoning just didn't make any sense. Perhaps that was because the phone reception had been poor, but Akira thought all of the major points had gotten across clearly.
Since transport and accommodation was being provided and it didn't interfere with any of his prior engagements there wasn't any technical reason why he should turn the job down. Since he had been personally asked for - as one of the Hokuto cup representatives, along with Shindou and Yashiro - he would feel guilty if he had turned this job down. Especially since the person who had asked had helped fund the Hokuto cup to begin with. Furthermore since Shindou and Yashiro had both agreed to attend, there really wasn't any reason why Akira should not.
Despite the fact that he was apparently going... to a school that had more money than sense, to teach soft-ballers about go. Akira frequently wondered how always ended up in these situations after meeting Shindou.
