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 :)
