    Summary

    When Gakushuu Asano starts high school, he's ready for difficult exams, strict teachers, and demanding classes — but what he isn't ready for is Karma Akabane. As his roommate. Living with him. Maybe even liking him.

    Somehow, they make it work.

    Summary

    They say the heart wants what it wants. Good luck figuring out what that is.

    [You bend to receive a black rosette from the Contrarian himself. "Capital. Another log to the flame, and a splendid log at that, hewn from a prince of oaks, felled in its prime—" A marching band of nuns in scarlet passes by. The Contrarian waves to them merrily. "Marvellous, isn't it? Nothing quite like the joie de vivre of the democratic process." Nearby an elderly deacon engages one of the Contrarian's supporters in a vigorous bout of democratic process. The Jovial Contrarian applauds, delighted. - That's it. That was the in-game text that ruined me]

    Summary

    He’s not sure how they ended up at the same university, either. By all rights, they should have ended up in totally different universities, possibly at opposite ends of the country. But Kageyama had been scouted and he’d been offered a place and it was a very good university, and neither of them hated the other quite enough to turn a place here down because the other was going.

    They hadn’t factored in sitting half-naked leant against each other and trying not to sweat too much under the overheated lights.

    No one would ever think to factor that in. Kei will forgive himself for not thinking this would happen, and planning for it accordingly.

    Summary

    Kenma has strangled every flower that has ever bloomed. He has reached inside of himself, pulled and pulled with desperate fingers until root tore from his shrinking organs, his throat bloody and sore and leaving behind a dull, satisfying emptiness. He has rendered his soil infertile, has denied it water and sun and food in the sick hope it'll wither away, turn to dust and float away in the harsh winter wind before he does.

    OR eating disorder recovery isn't a one time deal. kenma learns this the hard way

    Summary

    “Second is seen as nothing,” Christophe had derided.

    “But that moment you glide onto the ice, that hush of the audience, and that expectation, isn’t that worth something?”

    “You speak as if you know. You used to skate?"

    Past tense. It still stung, even if it was expected.

    Minako knows exactly what it's like to be at the top of your game, and she remembers the descent just as clearly.
