Well...I don't contribute to this community very often. Mind you, I also don't write very often. >> But I thought I might share this with you guys.
It is, as my usual wont, anime fanfiction...and though it does contain descriptions of light shonen-ai (boys' love...you know...homosexuality), there is no mention of anything remotely sexual (that's part of the reason I never post here...most of my stories are graphic sex. *cough*). However, I hope that it can, for the most part, stand on its own and be enjoyed (I'm hoping) by people who are not fans of this anime, or even of anime in particular.
I will, however, give some background: the fandom is Prince of Tennis/Tennis no Oujisama, and focuses on one of the jr. high tennis teams from that anime: Rikkai Dai Fuzoku. At the time both the manga and anime take place, team captain Yukimura Seiichi (last name first) is suffering from Guillian-Barre Syndrome , an inflammatory disorder of the peripheral nerves that causes paralysis. His vice-captain, Sanada Genichirou, takes over the running of the team in his absence. Note: the only Japanese word used in the story is "fukubuchou", which means (essentially) vice-captain. ^^
The team can be seen in my icon *points*...Yukimura is first with the blue hair (on the letter O) with Sanada following him. Then in order: Kirihara Akaya, Yanagi Renji, Yagyuu Hiroshi, Niou Masaharu, Jackal Kuwahara, and Marui Bunta. I'm sure many of you know all this already having seen me fangirl in my journal. ^^
I've always been of the mind that Rikkai is more like a family, with Yukimura and Sanada as mommy and daddy respectively, and the others all their children.
Ummmm, I think that's all I should say. I could babble about Rikkai forever, but you know... yeah. >> I'm not quite sure why I'm posting this...I guess, I failed at NaNo, so I wanted to prove that yes, I am a writer...lol.
One last warning that probably won't be of much concern to you guys but I feel I should include anyway: the story does contain character death.
The story is linked to my fic journal...please to follow the fake LJ cut.

If you do read it, I hope you enjoy it. ._.
