When a psychic attack leaves Tsukishima hiding in his own mind, empath Yamaguchi Tadashi ventures into the telepath's mind in an attempt to draw his best friend and partner back to the waking world.
Facing down Tsukishima's past, his memories, his personal demons and ghosts, can Yamaguchi save his best friend before the tenuous thread attaching him to the here and now snaps?
Hot summer evenings and drunken confessions.
And here Keishin thought his summer would be uneventful.
Keishin had long ago recognized and accepted his feelings for the other man. In the same breath, he also recognized that it was unlikely they would ever be reciprocated. And truly, he was okay with that. It was enough to be in his life, even if that was only as a friend.
After hearing that there are some vampires that miss the thrill of the hunt, Suga offers to let his vampire husband, Daichi, 'hunt' him. They talk, they make arrangements, and Suga sets out on a camping trip with the knowledge of what's to come thrumming in his veins.
"Asahi? Are you out there?" Suga tried again, the words chattering and shaking with a combination of cold and fear. Another crunch of dried leaves, and Suga turned in that direction, eyes narrowed as he squinted into the darkness.
He had just started to step forward, breath held, when a hand clamped down upon his shoulder, iron tight and unyielding, and cool breath ghosted over the shell of his ear. "Not Asahi, little rabbit. Care to try again?"
Laces tied off and leather gloves donned, Akaashi's stomach is filled with butterflies as he prepares for a very important encounter.
'It' was a lot of things, really, not just the unspoken question that sat between them. It was the way he had watched his best friend fall in love, the way that he didn't feel the jealousy he thought he'd feel at having to share Ushiwaka's time with someone else. It was the stirring of something in his belly that he had at first thought just a new friendship, but now recognized as something much more.
Tasked with helping Sugawara recover from a minor injury while Ushijima was away for volleyball, Tendou attempts to deal with the fact that he's falling hard — not only for his best friend, but his best friend's boyfriend.
