    Summary

    There's something in my veins, and its not blood. It's something darker, thicker, laced with tar and lead, dragging me farther down and down with every step I take until I'm finally back where I belong.

    AtoRyo // Like paint colours drizzled with water, their relationship fades. Desperately hanging to the edge, they add more paint, like adding coal to stoke a fire. They fluctuate.

    Summary

    “We’ll always be friends. No matter what happens. Won’t we?”

    One year after the fateful Winter Cup that changed them all for good, the Generation of Miracles meet to look at Christmas lights. Some take the opportunity to have a serious discussion.

Nothing, in other words, has really changed—but some unavoidable decisions are hovering on the horizon. (A three part near-future fic, written for Kurobas Week 2016. Standalone sequel to The Bridges Between Us.)

    Summary

    It's funny, in a cruel, sadistic sort of way, how your mind just stops, ceases to function in that momentary all encompassing relief when you find someone you lost, in the same way a mother would react to finding her missing child, he supposes, because all of the god awful scenarios of what could of happened to them race through your mind at 100 miles as hour, and in that moment when you find them again, those thoughts suddenly cease to exist like your brain short circuited with relief.

    Of course, a few seconds later in Jim's case, they all come flooding back at him again like the walls of a dam bursting open under the pressure, because the body of his friend is lying crumpled on the floor, leaking blood like sweat that contrasts so morbidly against unusually ashen skin, like red roses blooming and smothering their way through a field of white ones.

    Summary

    Kuroo Tetsurou does not trust magic. He prefers the steadiness of science- the surety that comes from a perfectly executed chemistry experiment or the laws of physics that bind them all. He prefers this steady study of their world to the chaos of spells and potions and curses.

    And then he meets Kei.
