    Summary

    Now that Hakone was over – things were going to change. What would happen after graduation? Aotake without Haiji was unimaginable. Running without Haiji and the others was unimaginable. How could Haiji do what he did? He had built a team from scratch, civilized the lot of them, and somehow led them to this moment where everything impossible became real. He had looked beyond times and distances and tried to find the true meaning of running and strength. He had taught a ragtag group of amateurs about running, racing, competing, life and love. How could Kakeru ever fill his shoes?

    Are you prepared, Kakeru?

    How could I ever be that strong?

    Summary

    [reader x haiji kiyose]

    Things don’t always turn up daisies. For example, you might end up becoming roommates with your high school ex-boyfriend that you may or may not still be a little in love with but haven't seen in four years. Spoiler alert: that happens, and it blows.

    Summary

    Kakeru knew how the world worked. He knew what being a submissive meant and what his place in society was. He knew what was expected of him and how to bow to the expectations of dominants. He knew every form of service in the book, expertly and meticulously trained to be the best. He knew, and that was why he ran away, living on the streets until the day he stole food for the first time. That was when he met the dominant Kiyose Haiji and realized he knew nothing at all.

    Summary

    Disappointing Performance by ETHER Activewear's Karahura Kakeru

    ETHER's Prodigious Star, Already Burning Out?

    Comody Iida Races Ahead in New Year Ekiden Qualifier, ETHER Activewear Struggles to Meet Projections

    Kurahara Kakeru's career takes an inexplicable nose dive, risking his sponsorship and place on his company team.

    An unprecedented PR stunt gives Kakeru the chance to reclaim himself and his running career. The objective? Make it to the Olympics and break from the mould of the marathon tradition. Instead, Kakeru is tasked with popularizing the 10km event and become the face for upcoming activewear brand ETHER in the process.

    An exploration into recovery, love, loss, injury, disability, and overall questioning what it means to be an athlete. More specifically, what exists for athletes when there is no overcoming to be had? What is the double-meaning of athletic performance? And eventually, how can embracing brokenness set us free?

    Summary

    “You’ll be fine.” There’s a sort of quiet reassurance in Haiji’s voice. Despite his own anxiety, Kakeru can’t help but feel a little calmer. “You know how I know? The mountains of Hakone are…”

    “Huh?”

    “Finish the line, Kakeru,” Haiji says patiently. “The mountains of Hakone are?”

    “The steepest in the world. What does this have to do with anything—”

    Kurahara Kakeru competes in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics.

    Summary

    Based on a dialogue prompt: "That's just not fair."

    ----
    “Haiji-san…” He starts, slow, his voice is a bit shaky from his emotions. “That’s just not fair,” Kakeru says, he states, because it’s outrageous to demolish Haiji’s efforts and the battles he won against himself in the past very long years.

    Chuckling, which is an ugly, bittersweet sound, Haiji swallows hard again before he can say, “Yeah, I suppose it’s not.”
    ----

    “Thank you,” Haiji whispers, and Kakeru just nods as he knows Haiji can feel the motion.

    (...)

    For the first time since Haiji has to deal with any of these, he feels less alone.

    Summary

    Based on a dialogue prompt: “In my defense, I really wanted to.”
    One sentence - said in their past and present:
    ----
    “But,” Kakeru starts, and Haiji pulls back, mirth tainting his eyes, “you could have woken me more nicely. Why the poking?” He does want to sound hurt to fray out some immediate cuddles but seeing Haiji’s eyes, Kakeru knows it’s not working.

    “In my defense, I really wanted to.” Haiji keeps his voice and expression serious, but he can do only for a second before he chuckles, throwing his head back as he does. His hand leaves Kakeru’s chest as he pulls his runner boyfriend into a tight hug.
    --
    His lips trembling and his voice cracking mid-sentence, Haiji spoke:

    “In my defense, I really wanted to.” Blinking a couple of times, under Kakeru’s gaze, Haiji’s smile fell, his head dropped. Turning away with his torso, he forced out one last sentence, his voice now wet. “Dinner is almost finished, please, eat without me.”

    Summary

    Based on a dialogue prompt: “At least I didn’t break any laws.”

    -
    And Kakeru also has learnt a lot from Haiji.

    His face still burning, and buried in Haiji’s shirt as he leans his face on his boyfriend’s shoulder, his arms loosely around Haiji’s waist, Kakeru says:

    “At least I didn’t break any laws.”

    Summary

    Kakeru’s forced to picture him, to draw him out from the corner of his mind, and speak to him through equally imagined words. How are you, Kakeru? How is Nira?  Haiji, arms crossed on his chest, hands hidden inside his hanten, steps out of his brain’s darkness. He figures that Haiji-san would always be the first to speak, with his unwavering soft smile. "I'm okay, Haiji-san," Kakeru, realizing the futility, whispers those words against the wind.

    In which Kakeru and Haiji write to each other, in this day and age.

    Summary

    There was a path that was perfectly made for Kakeru, a path that Haiji had started to pave when he had been still a student, and a path that led to so many places, unreachable for Haiji; too far, too strenuous. (...) He could only observe Kakeru following a way Haiji was meant to be on as well.
    And yet, he never would.
    (...)
    He was still himself, he was still Kiyose Haiji. But everything he had was a battered knee and a literature degree; what good would that do to him to win over the heart of a runner?

    Five years after Hakone Ekiden Haiji wants to ask Kakeru out, but he has doubts.

    Summary

    Kakeru showed up a couple of hours ago, after Haiji'd sent him a quick text to tell him that going to see the fireworks today might not be the best idea. Haiji'd tried to play it cool, pretend he was just tired, but of course his boyfriend immediately realized Haiji was hiding something.
