odds & ends
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Gen/No Pairing Fanfiction Recs - [ page one - page two ] - When I started with the REBORN! fandom, I just dumped all the fic into one section, I honestly thought it was going to be a small fandom that I would only get a decent amount of recs for if I read a whole bunch of crazy pairings. But then people actually started writing a lot of really good stuff and maybe I do like those pairings a lot, but there's character insight fic or gen friendships and I'm having fun reading those, too, because I genuinely like these characters. It delights me that the fandom seems to be growing at an exponential rate!
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Dino/Hibari Fanfiction Recs - [ page one - page two ] - Though. Well. Honestly. As much as I came to love the series for the characters and instantly loved it for the humor, I did fall pretty hard for Dino/Hibari as one of those die-hard pairings. I didn't expect to like it that much, but they had an amazing sort of chemsistry in my eyes, the kind where I half expected this to turn into a BL manga at any moment and have them make out because that's what the tension between them felt like for me. It didn't help that Dino immediately called Hibari by his given name (and Hibari didn't seem to object all that much...?) and eventually wrangled some respect out of Hibari, in his own way. That, plus there's some really awesome fic for them.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Mukuro/Hibari Fanfiction Recs - The first time I read the Koukuyou arc in the manga, I never really thought much about this potential pairing. I was still trying to figure Hibari out as a character on his own, much less with other people, so I wasn't shipping him with anyone just yet. And when I saw that people were writing it, I was sort of "...." over the idea because I had another pairing developing and it would basically have to be non-con, wouldn't it? But then I read some fics and... it is often non-con (or more like dub-con, I suppose) but that's the point, that they are two vicious people and watching them fight is really kind of, um, hot.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Tsuna/Gokudera Fanfiction Recs - Tsuna/Gokudera was actually the first pairing that jumped out at me, which was kind of difficult for it not to, because Gokudera practically lights up, glows, and follows Tsuna around like a puppy. ♥ It's not as popular in fandom as I wish it were, (and, admittedly, I did get distracted by some of the other characters, despite that I do still love this pairing tons!) but there's a handful of really good fic for it and I plan to continue to look for more of it. Given that Gokudera doesn't seem to be showing any signs of slowing down in his worship of Tsuna, hopefully it'll attract more authors. ♥
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Xanxus/Squalo Fanfiction Recs - I'm pretty easy when it comes to shipping Squalo with various characters (especially Bel and Yamamoto), but there is something about this pairing that always keeps me coming back. Squalo's loyalty to Xanxus and the really kind of hot dynamic they have, one of the few really rough relationships that I really like, just somehow works for me. I never really thought of them much as an OTP type, but... every time I read a good fic for them, I find myself thinking that, omg, yes, this is what I wanted out of fandom! and have to fight the urge to go look for a dozen more fics for them. That's usually a pretty good mark of pairing love for me right there. XD
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Byakuran/Shouichi Fanfiction Recs - I didn't intend to care that much for the Millefiore arc--and I still kind of don't--but this pairing kind of snuck up on me after being in fandom for awhile. These two are the most interesting characters to come out of the arc (well, Spanner has grown on me, too) and they have a fascinating relationship in a lot of fic, such a dangerous edge to them. And who am I to resist the pretty fic for this fandom? I do like shipping them both with other people a lot, too, but this one kind of grabbed me for awhile and I had to give them their own section.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Other Pairings Fanfiction Recs - There are a lot of pairings that I have a massive fondness for in the REBORN! fandom that just don't quite have enough fics to justify their own sections, but that I will continue to look for more and more of. I really do read just about anything in the fandom, the fandom is kind of amazing at making people laid-back enough to ship whatever and not get into fights about it, so it'll be quite an ecclectic selection. I really like Lambo/I-Pin, Xanxus/Squalo, Xanxus/Tsuna, Mukuro/Tsuna, Ryohei/Hibari, Yamamoto/Hibari, Byakuran/Hibari, Hibari/I-Pin (I think maybe you're detecting a pattern at this point), and more as they crop up in fandom. ♥

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Gen/No Pairings Fanart Recs - [ page one - page two - page three - page four ] - A lot of times there are some pairings on a site, but more than half of the images are stand-alone or the pairings could maybe only potentially imply pairings. There are a lot of sites like that that I think gen fans might enjoy as well, so they get put into this catagory. But there are also sites that aren't about pairings, that are about group antics or kickass stand-alone character art. So I hope that this section will actually be fairly large. ♥ Especially so since I genuinely like the characters for themselves, rather than just the pairings that they could potentially present.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Tsuna/Gokudera Fanart Recs - [ page one - page two ] - This is the first pairing in the series that jumped out at me... well, no. Tsuna/Kyouko was the first to jump out at me and I thought that was really cute. But then Gokudera came along and it wasn't just that he fanboyed Tsuna, but all the emotional weight of his storylines were revolving around Tsuna. And I like Gokudera, so I naturally took note of these two. And it's something that I could really sort of see working, aside from Tsuna's pesky crush on a girl of all things. ^_~ I haven't delved that deeply into the art for them yet, but I'm slowly amassing art links and one day this section will totally be huge. ♥
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Fanart Dino/Hibari Recs - [ page one - page two ] - I honestly didn't expect to like this pairing, I didn't really even think that much about it until awhile after I'd read their first scenes, and somehow... it just sort of absorbed into me and I couldn't stop thinking they would be absolutely, utterly, smoking hot together. And then there was some gorgeous fanart for them. And then there was some really hot fic that fed into it as well. Plus, Dino and Hibari are two of my favorite characters in the manga and they get some awesome art. I plan to utterly exhaust the j-fandom for every Dino/Hibari site I like and recommend it here. Maybe that'll mean that some of the art isn't really all that good for most people, but every site in this section is one that I got genuine enjoyment from.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Mukuro/Tsuna Fanart Recs - I can certainly see where this pairing comes from and... I don't entirely disagree. It's not necessarily something I would have gone for on my own, but I'm much looser with fanart and so I'm willing to look at just about anything that's pretty. And Mukuro/Tsuna gets a lot of really gorgeous art, so much that I felt I should put them all into their own catagory. It's the kind of quality that... even if you're not really that hyped on the idea of them, I would still suggest at least taking a look around for a little while, some of the sites are just too pretty to miss.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Xanxus/Squalo Fanart Recs - Another time I didn't plan to give Xanxus/Squalo its own section, but somehow I couldn't quite help myself because I adore them a lot and there's a surprising amount of art out there for them. Art that really fits the rough sort of feel the pairing has for me, that sort of epitomizes what I like about Amano's art for them. I wouldn't say this section will be huge, but you'll definitely at least be able to get a start in the fandom and see a nice sized collection of art for these two. Plus, the longer I'm in this fandom, the more I keep sliding towards them more and more as an OTP. Not entirely, but. I get definite cravings for them.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! Other Pairings Fanart Recs - [ page one - page two - page three ] - I really am totally loose with fanart, so just about anything that's really pretty, I'll happily go looking for. There might be a random Tsuna pairing here or a random Hibari pairing here (they're two of the ones I like to go looking for any art that I can find of them), something I thought was cute or something that was too pretty to pass up. Or it might just be that a site has a handful of several pairings, but no single pairing so prominent that I can label it, and then I'll stick the site in here. I expect this section to be decent-sized. (And maybe someday I'll be able to find some het fanart, too! That would be nice.)
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Fan Comics Recs - I spend way too much time on devART for my own good, so, well, I wanted to at least have something to show for that. Often times there's a cute little multi-page comic that's not really enough for a full fanart site rec, but it's more than I'd shove into the artbits section, so I didn't know what to do with it. Until this section. This'll probably mostly focus on Hibari (especially Dino/Hibari or Mukuro/Hibari) because that's just what I'm geared for. I'll try to branch out, but... well, you give me a choice between D18 and anything else, I'll still take the D18.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Gen & Other Doujinshi Recs - Admittedly, there's not a whole lot of gen doujinshi in the REBORN! fandom and this will probably end up being more of a catch-all for the various other pairings I'll read that aren't big enough for their own sections (Mukuro/Hibari or Mukuro/Tsuna or Byakuran/Shouichi or Yamamoto/Hibari) and... well, okay, I'm really into REBORN! doujinshi for the D18, but sometimes I like other stuff and eventually this'll be a decent sized section. XD Also, unless it's a super-rare pairing, this will probably be mostly scanslations.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Dino/Hibari Doujinshi Recs - [ page one - page two ] - As is probably pretty obvious, D18 is the real reason I'm into REBORN! doujinshi so heavily, because fic and fanart are just not enough, I need more more more. Also, I need porn for them and doujinshi is the best way to go with that. I've been overall pretty impressed with the fandom's output, Hibari has remained relatively in character with most of them and there are some seriously smoking hot artists for both of the characters. There is so much gorgeous stuff out there that I just can't resist any of it, which is why this section will be a mix of scanslated and raw doujinshi, because they get some awesome scanslations but that's just not enough. XD This section will easily, easily be the biggest doujinshi page I have, too.
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Yamamoto/Hibari Doujinshi Recs - It was actually doujinshi that really warmed me up to this pairing and probably where I'm focus will stay when it comes to them. I've recommended a bit of fanart for them, I'm pretty easy when it comes to visual stuff with Hibari (...to put it mildly) but I really developed a taste for these two in doujinshi. It's often not as plentiful or as well done as other pairings, but there's some really hot stuff out there and it totally fills a need in fandom that I have. There's a decent following for it as well, in that we'll occasionally get some scanslated stuff, too! Also, seriously. Hibari is totally my fandom bicycle, but he's really hot with Yamamoto. *__*
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Tsuna/Gokudera Doujinshi Recs - Generally, I go mostly just for the scanslated stuff with this pairing because it works better for me, because I enjoy it more. But occasionally a particularly interesting doujinshi or an especially pretty one will catch my eye or maybe it'll be 2759 instead of 5927 and I'll have to pounce on it. So, I figure this section will slanted more towards scanslated doujinshi with Tsuna and Gokudera, but you'll be able to find both. They may not be as plentiful as D18 or what have you, but. I fully intend to be obsessive about them, too. *__*
- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Xanxus/Squalo Doujinshi Recs - I never really planned on giving this pairing it's own doujinshi section, but as time went on, I found myself really looking forward to doujinshi with them, even deliberately seeking them out, rather than letting them come to me. There's a certain quality about them that lends themselves to the doujinshika of this fandom so very well and they grow to be more of an OTP every time I read something new. Not that I still won't easily cheat on them with other pairings (Bel/Squalo! Yamamoto/Squalo! I crave them!) but I find that I keep coming back to this one. There might not be an uber-ton of it, but there's some very nice stuff here and this corner of fandom isn't too shabby, honestly.
