    Summary

    It’s Aka-ashi, Keiji wants to say every time Bokuto says his name wrong, not Ah-kashi. He never corrects him.

    It’s easier to study if you don’t talk and actually study, Keiji wants to tell Bokuto every time he fails a test. He never tells him.

    Everything Bokuto does makes Keiji fall in love with him, and there’s a lot that Keiji doesn’t tell him.

    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.

    Summary

    When Bokuto asked him again the next year if he wanted to go to the festival with the rest of the team, Keiji said yes. He still had to clean the house with his family but he promised that before 10 p.m. he’d be there. Bokuto hooted in excitement and Keiji’s heart squeezed a little.

    Summary

    Bokuto turns Akaashi when he's twenty-seven years old. It's the most delicious blood Bokuto has ever tasted, and for a second he thinks maybe he should simply drain the body in front of him, letting the young man go to the other world. But he doesn't.

    (It's a separate story. The only relation in these series is that the themes are related to Halloween.)

    Summary

    "Keiji, you awake?"
    Akaashi's eyes shot open, and he propped his head back up on his hand, focusing back on the video call before him. "I'm up, Kou. Sorry for falling asleep again."
    "It's all good! It sucks that I can't call earlier. I wish I could come see you in person."
    "...yeah? Wishing's overrated anyway. We can make this work."

    --

    Akaashi and Bokuto try the long distance thing. It's enough, until it isn't.

    Summary

    “Kuroo do you think I’m homophobic?”, Bokuto asked in the middle of the movie they’d been watching. He was all wrapped up in a soft blanket on the couch in Kuroo and Tsukki’s living room, watching some superhero movie.
    Kuroo was sitting on the floor, leaning against the couch. Bokuto’s words had him laugh but he didn’t bother looking away from the tv screen. “What? Why would I think that?”
    Bokuto shrugged. “I don’t know, I just… I think I may be. I just feel so … angry all the time. And if it isn’t homophobia, I don’t know what else it could be.”

    Summary

    In another universe, Bokuto pulls Akaashi aside on the day of his graduation and presents him with the second button ripped from his uniform beneath the cherry blossoms. In another universe, Bokuto gives Akaashi his heart before heading off to university, and Akaashi is only too happy to accept. 

    This story, however, is not a part of that universe.  

    In this universe, Akaashi sits and watches Bokuto gleam as he accepts his diploma, smile big and bright as the sun, and Akaashi can't help the pang in his chest. He is proud of his ace, and he will always be proud of Bokuto; the older boy has been scouted for talent to the University of Tokyo and was already begging Akaashi to come and visit him, and yet it feels like Akaashi is losing him. 

    Keiji Akaashi has never been good at lying to himself.

    Summary

    “You named the baby?”

    Bokuto pouts again. “No, he came with this.”

    Keiji takes the note Bokuto offers him. It’s written in an unfamiliar slanting script on a slightly crumpled piece of paper with a safety pin through it that Keiji assumes was used to afix it to the outside of the baby's blanket.

    “My name is Hinata Shouyou,” he reads, “I am not lost, just looking for someone to be my parents. Please treat me kindly.”

    In which Bokuto has an early midlife crisis because of a baby and Keiji has both a headache and a crush.

    Summary

    Bokuto gets distracted as Kuroo takes his goddamn time getting up from the bench. He fidgets with his nails, checks out his own ass in the mirror (these new leggings make it look spectacular), looks up at the door when it opens—
    And in walks the most beautiful human Bokuto’s ever seen.

    Summary

    "So...you're a pianist." Bokuto leans against the piano, stage lights illuminating his hair and Akaashi glares a little at the halo above his head because he is not floored by this jazz singer. Not at all. Not impressed by his wide shoulders or his amazing eyes or the cute dimples or even the faint freckles across his nose. And he's most definitely not staring at him. He's just practicing being polite like his mother taught him, maintaining eye contact with people when he's talking to them.
