  1. Summary

    Central State University is about as par for the course as any other military school transitioning to a state-funded college might be, but to be fair, no one expected a school year quite like this one.

    [Or: arson and essays, stolen bikes and beer pong, $5.20 Venmo requests and late-night phone calls, coffee and happy lights, getting caught in the rain and wondering if their eyes were always that bright, parking tickets and standing up for yourself, the thrill of the chase and the fear of what's missing, nicknames and codenames, emojis and grants, pop divas and insurance fraud, cutting all your hair off and being haunted, different kinds of art and different kinds of success, joining the orphan's club but making your own family, drag queens and falling out of trees, masks and sex in the Dean's Office and minimum wage jobs, wanting to be better but not knowing how, making the winning point and saying you're sorry, making mistakes and making the same mistake over and over and over and making it right, not being able to see or believe but trying anyway, losing who you were but finding something better, and a mysterious drug called "The Philosopher's Stone". It's called college.]

    Summary

    In chapter 369, we are treated to a scene of Daichi and the others gathering around for dinner with smiling, content faces, just basking in one another's presence. In another room, a panel shunted off to the side, Hinata cries as he digs into his bowl of soup.

    A page later, we see Daichi and the other third years graduate. The years flash by in a cluster of panels, leaving us with Hinata on a bicycle, peddling up the streets of Brazil to deliver food. What happened in between those panels? What growth was there that we only saw in glimpses, of Karasuno?

    How about this story? A day after Karasuno's defeat, we turn the page to see Hinata blinking open fever-weary eyes, ready to greet the new morning. Spring is over, but summer's only just beginning, and their end is only a start of the things left to do.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    a gem of a fic, canon for all intents and purposes, i'll need to read it a few times before i can do it with crying, in case you wanted to know what happens after the primary year haikyuu is set in!

    Summary

    Three years after the coronation, a plot to overthrow the Emperor has been put into motion. Disguised as a noblewoman, Lan Fan plunges into the Xingese court—and into a courtship with the emperor himself. "You are my master," she said. "There is nothing that I will not do for you." He smiled then. "So why won't you kiss me, then, Lan Fan?"

    [Co-posted on FFnet. Ongoing. NEXT UPDATE: October 11, 2016. Japan time.]

    [NOTE: Chap. 10 has undergone some reworking, and there have been spot edits throughout the fic.]

    Summary

    What he wanted (and oh how he wanted when it came to her) was to see Lan Fan. The person she concealed behind armor and mask and propriety. Since their time in Amestris Lan Fan laid bricks of duty, honor, and tradition one by one; Before Ling knew it she’d built a wall between them.
