    Summary

    "He continued humming as he washed the rice and greens and thought about Keiji. Sometimes Koutarou found himself in disbelief at how lucky he was to finally be with him after all these years. It felt like yesterday they were teenagers and Koutarou couldn’t make sense of his feelings for Keiji. It wasn’t until he graduated that he really took the time to figure out that he liked him as more than just a friend, but by that point he was sure that it was too late to do anything about it."

    Or: Koutarou cooks a special Valentine's Day dinner for his boyfriend.

    Summary

    Sometimes, five years is just five years. Sometimes, it’s a lifetime.

    Five years later, five years of absence, and Bokuto’s still learning. That there are some things that exist in the world that can be fixed even after they’re broken. That things, maybe, have always been a lot simpler than he’s given them credit for. That promises matter, but keeping them is a whole different ballgame.

    Summary

    Koutarou frowns, turning his attention to the large window that takes up most of one wall. Outside is the wide expanse of the Wastes, rolling hills of jagged dark gravel that reflect the rainbow, like an oil slick. It often shifts and shudders as it produces monsters but for the last month it’s been quiet, not even a tremor. On the sharp cliffs of the Disk, a plateau upon which humanity lives that rises above the Wastes, five towers are filled with the warriors who hold the Wastes at bay.

    What do the warriors do when the Wastes fall quiet?

    Well, it seems to depend on the tower. At Karasuno, apparently, they get up to the kind of hijinks that threaten to blow themselves up. At Nekoma they play cards. At Seijoh they place bets. He’s still waiting to hear back from Ushijima on the state of the north.

    Here, at Fukurodani Tower, they race.

    Summary

    "Hey," Konoha says, tone hushed, one day after practice when he and Bokuto end up staying behind together, "Akaashi likes you, you know?"
    Bokuto is in the process of putting on a clean shirt. "Of course he does," he says, voice too close to his ears under the fabric. "We're friends!" He pulls the shirt down, freeing his head. "What," he says, suddenly self-conscious, "does someone not like me?"


    In which Akaashi falls for Bokuto first.

    Summary

    Bokuto hadn't seen Akaashi in over four years. There had been so much he wanted to say, to do, but couldn't.

    Now, after a long volleyball game, as the crowds are dying down, they meet again.

    And like two stars, they collide.
