    Summary

    As a little kid, Tsukasa meets a stranger that saves him after the worst weeks of his life. He couldn't get his name, but the kind stranger never left his mind.

    When they meet again years later, Tsukasa finds that this kind stranger is not at all like he remembers -- if anything, he now represents everything he hates!

    Ryuusui takes care of a stray kitten with a stranger and ends up caring more than he planned. When he meets him again years later, the sweet, teary-eyed stranger he remembers grew into an angry, asocial teen who decided to hate him without getting to know him properly!

     

    Forced to interact together, will they finally learn to get along without carrying their personal emotional baggage into their relationships?

    Summary

    His fingers tighten around the hilt of his blade. “Why are you following me?”

    Akaza strolls closer, steps almost languid. “Why am I following you?” There isn’t an ounce of fear in him as he leans forward, nearly brushing noses with Kyojurou. “Because I missed you, of course, Kyojurou.”

    (or: for what must be the nth time, kyojurou and akaza fight)

    Summary

    Kintsugi (金継ぎ) - the art of embracing damage by repairing with gold. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

    --
    Takuto doesn't have a job, or friends, or any footholds in his field, so, naturally, he walks into a novelty gun store and asks for something to do.

    Summary

    Oikawa Tooru graduated high school with the burning desire to succeed in his college career. He'd hoped that might include taking down his arch-nemesis along the way, but when he finds that his college team hosts an offensively familiar face, he can't help but think that the universe might be conspiring against him. After all, what could be worse than playing on the same team as Ushijima?
