Four: Nino is my fandom bicycle  
Title: Ever-Evolving Formula
Author: ltgmars at yoymisogorgeous
Pairing: Aiba/Nino
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Nino and Aiba spend their entire lives marking the things important to them. Remix of kinoface's Painting.
Word Count: 2,657

Yeah... I'm not even going to pretend that I can write a proper review or that this didn't make me tear up. I never really shipped Aimiya because of their BFF dynamic, but this fic utilizes that well in that they feel so natural and right together. It's an absolutely gorgeous piece and the original is wonderful too.

Title: Strict Machine
Author: kinoface
Pairing: Ohno/Nino, Aiba/Jun/Nino/Sho
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Arashi make a video for Ohno's birthday, with sexy results.
Word Count: 5682

Possibly the hottest thing I have ever read. Or rather, the hottest thing that exists. Kinoface writes the best porn and this one has Nino getting fucked six ways from sunday- everything a Nino fan could ask for, really. :D

Title: games (no more and no less)
Author: g_esquared at shelvability
Pairing: Ohno/Nino
Rating: R
Summary: Ohno wants to keep what is his, but games come with the territory.
Word Count: 1370

Since this was written for the prompt: Who would have believed that a couple who are always all over each other actually have rather dull and awkward sex life?, I thought it would be one of those fun and sexy pieces, and it is but it is also so much more than that. The ending is just. ♥

I don't exclusively read Nino pairings but it seems like that's all I've been reccing @__@ Next time there will be more diversity! Possibly. :D

#3: More Ohmiya, because they finally had a meal together  
Like the title says- more Ohmiya recs because Ohno finally stops rejecting Nino! Actually it's just because I ship them too hard. Difficult not to, given how married they are.

Title: Valentine's Day
Author: still-ciircee
Pairing: Ohno/Nino
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Ohno and Nino spend the day together on Valentine's Day.
Word Count: 7116

I love the soft, warm atmosphere throughout the story and how relaxed and comfortable it felt- rather than a Valentine's day with big displays and grand gestures, it's simply about Ohno and Nino savoring one of the rare moments they can be alone together. It's sweet and tender and emotional and a little sad- yet feels so casual and so them. Also, emotional porn is the best kind of porn, just saying. This fic, it has my heart.

Title: Kyo to Kyo (+ Aiba/Jun prequel)
Author: still-ciircee
Pairing: Ohno/Nino
Rating: R
Summary: What starts off as a joke becomes something more. Underaged Ohmiya fic.
Word Count: 7800+

I adore Circe's writing and this is a perfect example why. Yes, I know it says that this is underaged fic (Ohno is 17 and Nino is 14), but it isn't squicky at all. The development of their relationship felt very simple and pure- not in the sense that they didn't know what they were doing, but that their growing attraction to each other felt very natural and inevitable. The characterization is perfect (Nino is a little shit who Ohno is hopelessly charmed by), and guhh they are just too squishy and adorable here ♥ This fic is a real gem and it's impossible not to love it.

more under here! )

And because Ohmiya's love transcends universes- Jdrama fic recs!

Title: the war of the universe (+ prequel)
Author: waxrose
Series: Maou/Ryusei no Kizuna crossover
Pairing: Naruse Ryou/Ariake Koichi
Rating: R
Word Count: ~2000

This is the kind of pairing that you can't unship after you've thought about it, even if you know they're doomed from the start. :( This fic is predictably tragic, but it's the moments of tenderness between the characters and the comfort that Ryou and Koichi can take from each other that makes it truly heartbreaking. A gorgeous read.

Title: nonsensical : smile
Author: applepluspie
Series: Yamada Taro Monogatari
Pairing: Taro/Pamphlet Guy
Rating: G
Summary: When ohno gets a free moment, he likes to tell his mind to shut up.
Word Count: 790

Because the only thing possibly more OTP than Mimura/Taro is Taro/Pamphlet Guy. This is a charming little fic that gives Ohno's cameo the love it deserves :)

First post!  
Hello and welcome to this Arashi fic rec journal of sorts!

Title: To Be Found Next Summer on a Riverbank (+ sequel!)
Author: __sine at bysine
Pairing: Ohno/Nino
Rating: PG-13
Summary: AU. The first day of summer training started without Toma. In which they form a rowing club, and Nino meets Ohno.
Word Count: 13,000+

The great thing about Arashi ficdom is that the boys have years of material for authors to explore. This fic is inspired by the Mago Mago Arashi Boat Club saga- imo one of the most memorable events in fandom. You don't have to have watched the Mago Mago Arashi episodes to enjoy this fic (as it focuses more on Ohno and Nino's relationship rather than their boating experience), but for those who have, this is a real treat. I really enjoyed the little details she put in, and the picture inserts add mood and atmosphere to the fic. And of course, the buildup to Ohmiya's relationship was perfect. ♥

Title: Encaustic
Author: milesofspace / augustfai at singability
Pairing: Ohno/Nino
Rating: PG
Summary: Come help with the farm. Art school won't miss you for one month, right? Ohno works on an acerola farm and Nino is the paper boy.
Word Count: ~23,000

This fic is based on a prompt offered during ohmiya's drabble/short story contest, which (I think) is loosely based on Mago Mago Arashi #18, where Ohmiya visit grandparents that own an acerola farm. I don't even know where to start describing the loveliness that is this fic- there's the wonderfully dreamy atmosphere created by the author's descriptions of Okinawa, for instance; and then there's the way the author writes in Ohno's POV. My favorite part of the story is the gradual development of Ohno and Nino's relationship- it's slow but intense, and charged with emotion without spilling over into melodrama. This is one of my favorite fics simply because it feels so genuine. Give it a try, you definitely won't be disappointed :)
