fanfiction

A small rather large (but sadly STILL growing, haha) collection of Sakaki fanfiction by me. Yay.

notes, etc

~ These stories contain spoilers for ALL GH2 character routes. (especially Sakaki, Sonoda, and Tomo)
~ Teachers are addressed as Professor, -shi is rendered as Mr., all other honorifics are used exactly as they appear in-game.
~ All stories are posted on my AO3 (Archive of Our Own) account. I have more stories on AO3 too, so check it out! I'm only posting the Sakaki ones here but I've written a lot more GH/GH2 fic! :D

ace of hearts (series) & becoming Suzubishi (sub-series)

All of these individual fics fit together to make one larger story. Ace of Hearts is the main story about Sakaki and Yuki, and since my planned miniseries thing Becoming Suzubishi (about Tomo deciding to be adopted by Kazuki) takes place in the same continuity - and there's some crossover between the two - I'm including them here as well.

Color coded for your convenience! Pink = Ace of Hearts and green = Becoming Suzubishi. :3
