    Summary

    Yaku doesn’t let Kuroo derail him. “You don’t even have that excuse. And I’ve known you and Kenma too long to think that these feelings didn’t exist, before today.”

    There’s a truth in what he says. Kuroo’s chest feels too small to contain his heart, beating giddily against his ribs. Even if he falls into his usual back and forth with Yaku, everything is different today.

    “It’s not like that,” he says softly. He cups both hands around his mug, looking into the dregs of his coffee. “It’s like… I couldn’t even let myself think of it before, you know? I couldn’t let my mind even go there, because it would’ve been unbearable, to know and not be able to do anything about it.”

    Yaku shakes his head, kicking at Kuroo’s legs under the table. “Oh my god,” he says. “You’re going to be hopeless now, aren’t you?”

    Five years after high school— what changes, what doesn't, and what really matters, in the end.

    Summary

    Some people develop powers as they grow older; others don't. This fact doesn’t bother Oikawa Tooru too much, at least not when he’s young. Then, at eight years old, Iwaizumi Hajime discovers his own ability. He’s stronger than anyone could be, given human limitations. It’s a broad and useful power, one that could take Iwaizumi down any number of paths in the future. He’s discovered his ability early, too, and all of the adults in the neighborhood say that he’s got a bright future ahead of him.

    Oikawa could’ve told them that ages ago—he’s always known Iwaizumi is special, long before he started being able to lift furniture with one hand. Everything Iwaizumi does, Oikawa has always done with him. So he goes home and waits for his own ability to manifest.

    Nearly ten years later, on the eve of the last tournament of his high school volleyball career, he’s still waiting.

    Summary

    Now, the thing is that the pond on Route 102 isn’t much of a place for swimming. The entire area is rather uninhabited, save for the few young trainers fresh from home and the wild Pokémon that live there. People fish in the pond, but that’s about it. So when what is unmistakably a hand touches Yuuri’s foot, he’s not exactly at fault for screaming out loud and toppling into the water.
    “What the—” he sputters, scrambling to grab onto Milotic while gripping the Ultra Ball tightly. “Who the hell—”
    “Oh, sorry!” someone says from next to him. “I just wanted to tell you that you dropped a Pokéball.”
    Yuuri turns, and his brain short-circuits. All those years of learning how to communicate, of learning how to be a proper member of human society fly out of his head and somewhere into the soupy, blue depths of the pond, because Viktor Nikiforov—Pokémon Champion of the Hoenn Region for seven consecutive years and the love of ten-year-old Yuuri’s life—is leaning on Yuuri’s Milotic, treading water next to him, and most definitely not wearing a shirt.


    Yuuri's a tired but talented Pokémon researcher, and Viktor is the prodigal Champion who's a little in love.

    Summary

    Chirrut threw his head back, as though Baze had issued a challenge.

    "I'll leave a mark on you some day," he said. It felt like a promise. Maybe a threat. "You're not a distraction. And it's not a passing fancy."

    He pointed at Baze – a piece of incivility Baze felt he hardly deserved. "You watch out. I'm going to prove it. The Force is with you, Baze."

    This was a perfectly conventional thing for one novitiate to say to another, by way of praise or encouragement. It was typical of Chirrut that he should have made it weird.

     

    Chirrut pursues Baze. Kids at the Temple fic, spanning a period of 20 years.
