Twenty Diversions, Isumi by Lynn
Isumi thinks about the Hand of God. (Added 15 January 2006)

The Way of Go by vkempf
WIP. This fic has barely begun, but I really like the first two chapters. I think they could stand well on their own. In them, Sai consults a powerful onmyoji, Seimei, on the eve of the fateful game.
