    Summary

    The abandoned way station out by the slip road was just as Iwaizumi had described it, which was how his uncle had described it, for even Iwaizumi himself had not laid eyes on the place since they were children. It was a glorified shack badly in need of three new coats of paint and a coffee machine.

    Iwaizumi had the latter, and Oikawa, fortunately, the former. He had picked out the paint himself, a sight for sore eyes in mint that made Iwaizumi raise his eyebrows.

    Oikawa hopped off the truck, breathed, “It’s perfect,” and meant it.

    In which Iwaizumi and Oikawa run a way station for travellers off the Joban Expressway, go stargazing, and aren't quite sure what to make of the vine growing up their wall.

    Summary

    The tapestry that hangs at the back of the stage, on the side the audience cannot see, is wider than Shinsuke can hold now. He takes it by the corners, spreads it on the floor, smooths out the creases and picks up the red knot. With a gentle shake, it comes completely undone at last. A cascade of red threads tumble from Shinsuke’s hand like rivers to the sea.

    He picks up his needle and starts to sew.

    That night, Shinsuke lights the candles at the front of the stage and tells a story of blood. His eyes are bright and his voice is a weeping that sings.

    Of cleaning shrines, telling stories, and listening to find your own.

    Summary

    “Shame we didn’t get to talk before now."

    “I don’t really have anything to talk about, though,” says Kenma.

    Akaashi, eyes darker yet in the smouldering light, smiles. “I was counting on it.”

    On kindred spirits finding each other, sharp edges and all.

    Summary

    He could still hear the electric beat of the music thrumming by his collarbone, below his ear, as Kageyama’s eyes widened like no one had ever asked him to do something with them before.

    In which the leitmotifs of Iwaizumi Hajime and Kageyama Tobio keep on looping, and everything leads to something real, in the end.

    Summary

    Yume-no-Tsuribashi, Oikawa said, had come to him in a dream, appropriately enough.

    He had woken, and there was the sound of rushing water outside his window, and when he looked up the dogwood flowers were falling from the branches, like so many little white stars making ripples on the surface of the river. Or, if you looked at them another way, like so many little LED lights blinking another kind of magic. The insert new coin kind.

    In which Oikawa and Kenma run a vintage arcade by the pier in Yokohama, and Kunimi plays Pac-Man on Wednesdays.

    Summary

    He made a finger gun at Kenji. It went off with a whispered bang, and Oikawa exhaled, leaned back and tucked his hands behind his neck, elbows out obnoxiously to either side.

    "Why do I have the feeling I should throw you out of my car?" Kenji muttered.

    Oikawa grinned. "Same reason I have the feeling you won't."

    Summary

    He's just leaning against the wall at the pre-event briefing, flicking idly through Instagram to while away the minutes, when a voice he couldn't mistake in years somehow manages to lilt right through the ambient hum of chatter all around and make him look up.

    "Mattsun?"

    Summary

    the first time you saw him,
    he didn't leave much of an impression.

    In which Kageyama Tobio, a little older (and maybe wiser), tries to pick up the frayed threads of a friendship unravelled.

    Summary

    And he knows himself, with his uncanny sight, the best night vision this side of Tokyo's smile-sharp underworld, and his sense for danger. For self-preservation, against all the odds, and more -

    For survival, beyond a phoenix-red dawn.

    Or, when keeping your head down and your pistol cocked isn't enough to save you, and time is running out.

    Summary

    When he develops the film pictures, they come out different from the digital ones, and there they are again -

    Those flecks of brightness, glimmering faintly against that 3 AM sky.

    Summary

    His hair's growing out, a little more black than blond now. If he leaves it alone for much longer, it'll be close to brushing his shoulders. Suga wonders if there's no one left to remind him to cut it.

    He smiles back, and slides easily into a comfortable place next to Kenma.

    Summary

    "I win again," he declares triumphantly.

    "I'll get you next time," says Oikawa, smile tinged with the sharp tang of summer.

    It's no empty threat. Suga knows that he'll give it his very best, or kill himself trying, or, quite likely, kill them both. He's the worst. He's the best. (But, really, the worst, in the best way possible.)

    how to meet and beat your perfect match, a manual: from back to front.
    (or, four times suga beats oikawa and the one time he gets him back.)

    Summary

    Chikara swallows. He studies the boy next to him, thinks of a snippet of conversation, a fact that's stuck with him since he heard it. In the daylight hours with everyone else around, he'd never dare to be quite so bold, but - maybe now -

    "Hinata told me once that you... In your first year, you wanted to quit."

    Summary

    "Do you feel lucky, Iwa-chan?" Oikawa whispers.

    Ahead of them, a bell tolls. Hands clap together in prayer.

    Iwaizumi doesn't turn around.

    "I know I am," he says.

    Summary

    Kageyama rubs the back of his beck and tries not to do that glaring thing. He feels, suddenly and profoundly, that this was a mistake. Perhaps he should have led with something friendly, like, hello. Perhaps he should have followed Hinata's example and settled for texting.

    But they're here, now, and patience has never been Kageyama's strong suit, not when it comes to some things.

    Summary

    "Akaashi Keiji," says Akaashi. His voice is low, a calm, pleasant timbre that fades easily into the background buzz of the studio. "Nice to meet you, Kozume-san. I'm in your hands today."
