Between Here and There by [livejournal.com profile] kahn
Hiei and Kurama as they travel to meet Yuusuke before the Four Beasts arc. Kurama/Hiei

Comfort by Arigatomina
After Yusuke's resurrection, Hiei wakes to find himself back in the human world. But he isn't as disappointed as Kurama thinks. Kurama+Hiei

Eien no Hakusho by Morgan D.
The timeline presents stories that happen before, during and after the original series. Kurama/Hiei, NC-17

Fears by Rei-Kuhori
Hiei has two fears. Ironically enough, they both concern the same person. Hiei/Kurama

Indebted by Arigatomina
The last time Kurama was hit by the 'fruit of the past life,' he regressed to a full grown youko. This time he's much younger, and he's attached himself to a very unwilling Hiei, literally. Kurama+Hiei, WIP

Midsummer Moon by petronia
June night. Spill of the pure light against my sheets, shadow of leaves like black paper cut-outs. The warmth is hands brushing over me: the soft places in the crook of my elbows, the pulse in my throat. This body of mine, this green-eyed new me. Midsummer. Hiei/Kurama, NC-17

Preparing for Battle by Chibi
"How about you just fight naked," Hiei muttered, still glaring at Kurama. "That would end this clothing dispute and distract the competition." Hiei/Kurama

Seasons of Ice and Fire by bonnejeanne & Nixerchan
Three seasons, one cabin. Kurama/Hiei, NC-17

The Beginning by Larissa
Yusuke captured Hiei, with Kurama's help, for stealing the Ghostslayer. Some time later both Hiei and Kurama are willing to work together with Yusuke. What happened between those two contradictory events? Kurama/Hiei, NC-17

The Hidden Continent by Arigatomina
Drawn by the energy unleashed between Naruto and Sasuke, strangers have come to Konoha. Their interest in Kyubi isn't nearly as disturbing as where they claim to be from. Kurama/Hiei, Naruto/Sasuke, YYH/Naruto crossover, WIP

The Rose by Katrina Somers
Kurama is in love. Keiko wants to know with whom. Kurama/Hiei

These Precious Gifts by Take
Three types of love: of friends, family, and beloved. Kurama/Hiei


All Hallow's Eve by [livejournal.com profile] kahn
It's Halloween, and Kuwabara got conned into hosting a party. There are many cameo appearances from not-so-major characters, and a sort-of crossover (it's vague--see if you can spot it!). And Kurama kisses Kuwabara under the mistletoe. Kurama/Kuwabara

Black Suicide by Zelia Theb
Now a private investigator, Yusuke is reunited with his friends when Koenma makes an offer he can't refuse: making amends with a deceased loved one in return for investigating a string of unsolved supernatural mysteries. post-series, various past/present pairings, WIP, R

* Flirt by [livejournal.com profile] nightwalker
Kurama was flirting. Kurama+Kuwabara

Meanwhile, Back in the Ningenkai by [livejournal.com profile] nightwalker
It was a year after Urameshi had made his triumphant and rather anticlimactic return to the human world – not that he had stayed, once making his triumphant return. Kurama/Kuwabara

Midnight Hour by scheherezhad
"I bruise easily," he told me once. And he does. Yusuke/Koenma, R

Treat by Larissa
After a battle, Yusuke is at loose ends. Hiei proves to be an interesting distraction. Yusuke/Hiei, off-screen Kurama/Hiei, sequel to The Beginning, NC-17

Higher Learning by Arigatomina
After Snape is revealed as a spy, Dumbledore calls in some favors from an old friend. Kurama and Hiei are set up as guards at Hogwarts, with a message that soon becomes clear. If Voldemort wants to pursue his new vendetta, he’ll have to go through them first. YYH/HP crossover, WIP

In the Wake of the Flood by [livejournal.com profile] kahn
The Reikai Tantei deal with a little problem in their own unique and slightly violent way.

Kurama’s Secret Diary by [livejournal.com profile] joisbishmyoga
Met new Spirit detective, took to rooftop b/c look good in sunset and moonlight. Detective didn't notice come-on.

Pants? by [livejournal.com profile] evilsimon
If there was one thing Hiei really had issues with, it was arguing with Yusuke. And that was because Yusuke was invariably right.

The Christmas Spirit by Talya Firedancer
Yuusuke and teammates have an unusual youkai to get rid of on Christmas Eve.

Through the Illusions by Rebecca
Hiei and Kurama test the extents of their friendship.

Trial and Error by Ms. Zeal
During the Dark Tournament, Kurama recieved a potion from Suzuka that could change him into his youko form. Kurama experiments with the potion before the fight and finds it is a little difficult to get the dosage correct...

Yuusuke’s Secret Diary by [livejournal.com profile] joisbishmyoga

After marathoning YYH with a friend, my interest in the fandom was rekindled. I immediately set out to comb ff.net for good YYH fics and re-read all the classics. I thought I'd share what I found with you.

At ff.net, in no particular order:

Jesanae Tekani (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/91559/)
For epic WIP Changing Death (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1306876/1/) and Mary Sue parody Pointless (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3463400/1/).

The Kaleidoscope Syndrome (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2017563/1/), by Prosopopeia (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/54806/)
[AU, yaoi YxH] When Yusuke's past begins to mix with his present, it's up to a certain three-eyed youkai to help keep his mind intact.

I have a soft spot about the size of Eurasia for the YusukexHiei pairing and then Prosopopeia threw in a creative plot! Set after the series! Good use of minor characters! Magic! Makai geography! Argh! I can't resist!

I second [livejournal.com profile] medea_aries's recommendation of Blossomwitch (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/552045/).

UltamiteAngstQueen (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/679894/)
For Out of the Loop (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3259292/1/) (It started with a camping trip. Well, actually, it started with Kurama, and that led to five million other things, and pretty soon, I, Kazuma Kuwabara, had became team therapist.) and not one, but two ongoing takes on how Kurama's family Finds Out. Wherein Hiei slaps Kurama while threatening him with holy water and Yukina is almost murdered by Yusuke and Kurama. There's a Jagan-controlled bus (driver), too. Not all in the same fic, mind you.

Sunshine (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1434520/1/), by lobstersAHOY (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/261922/)
Kurama's kindness is taken advantage of yet again.

Featuring adolescent!Shura and a much put-upon Kurama, Botan, and Hiei. Inklings of plot.

Playing the Game (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2124522/1/), by Tenika D (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/403178/)
It's inevitable for power to bring detachment, and for extreme power to bring boredom: This is exactly what plagues the Youko, and the remedy is to make everything into entertainment. But in a game, you're not supposed to be able to die...

Simply the best long YoukoxKuronue fic I've ever read. Ah, those wacky demons! In love! ...kind of.

Madhumalati (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1123032/)
For The Language of Flowers (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3213643/1/). A fantastic up-and-coming YYH writer.

Unbelievable though it may seem, I count four decent HP crossovers besides Arigatomina's "Higher Learning." Again in no particular order:

Flawed (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2435415/1/), by Kurome Shiretsu (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/475409/)
Targeted by the followers of a dark wizard, Yuusuke is sent to the last place expected: into the heart of wizard society. When his Toushin powers cannot defend him, when his demon blood is an instant mark for death, how will Yuusuke survive?

A reverse of the usual power (im)balance between the two series that will, I hope, go somewhere interesting. Kurome Shiretsu's focus on Yusuke is also much appreciated, and the writing in "Flawed" is more consistently good than in the perhaps more popular X-men Evolution crossover Mission X (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1583997/1/).
