    Summary

    Keith has a lot going on between his duties as class president, way too much homework, and being groomed to take over his mother's corporation. He’s gotten very used to pushing things down and ignoring them in favor of doing what is expected of him, so it’s easy to shove that whole ‘gender’ thing he’s been dealing with lately to the very far corners of his mind. He doesn’t have time to think about it anyway, and he DEFINITELY doesn't have time for the loud, pushy, overfamiliar showboat of a new kid who just crashed into his school and his life. No matter how attractive he is.

    Lance is lucky; not many kids from his neighborhood get the chance to attend the prestigious Merriweather Academy - and by ‘many’ he means ‘zero.’ Winning the lottery for a scholarship was a combination of his own hard work and sheer luck. He knows it’s going to be a culture clash, but it’s just for a year, right? If it means getting into a better university, he can suffer through anything.

    Until he starts falling for the prickly class president, and has to question everything about who he is, and what this might mean for his future.

    Summary

    "I'm Sakusa Kiyoomi, I have obsessive compulsive disorder, and my main outlet is volleyball, I s'pose. I play for MSBY."

    It was Atsumu's turn, then, and he hurriedly rose to his feet, knocking his chair back a couple inches in the process. "My name is Miya Atsumu, accordin' to the paperwork I have bipolar depression. Uh, my outlet is also volleyball. I also play for MSBY."
    --
    Or: Appearances are everything, too bad Atsumu's was ruined with the one person it mattered most the second Osamu brought that damn pamphlet home.

    Loosely inspired by the song Agoraphobia by Autoheart.

    Summary

    When Atsumu Miya gets off on the wrong foot with a certain Sakusa Kiyoomi on the first day of practice for MSBY Black Jackals, he vows to avoid the stuck-up spiker as much as he can, even while on the same volleyball team. And it would've been a good plan--if Atsumu didn't meet Sakusa again at group therapy that very night.

    Summary

    Ushijima stares at Satori, brows raised a mere millimetre. He seems... surprised, Satori decides, to see someone other than Goshiki working at the kiosk.

    “Oh!” Goshiki flushes. “Ushijima-san, this is Tendou Satori, the other employee here. Remember, I mentioned him before?”

    “Yes,” Ushijima says.

    Well, of course he does. Everyone knows about Tendou Satori.

    Summary

    Semi has danced at so many clubs that he hardly even notices a difference when he moves from city to city. It's always the same crowds no matter where he goes, and he always has to share a stage with the same backstabbing assholes. That's just how the club scene works, and he knows Plumage won't be any different.

    Except instead of talking shit and sabotaging him, the dancers at Plumage initiate a different sort of harassment that involves repeated attempts to befriend him and non-optional invitations out to dinner. It's almost worse this way, because at least in the past, Semi had known what to expect.

    The worst of them all is Tendou Satori, who is unrelenting in his pursuit of friendship, despite how many times Semi shoots him down. Tendou is obnoxious and never learned the art of taking a hint, and despite his best efforts, Semi gradually finds himself hating Tendou's company less and less. It's a perilous slope, and Semi keeps sliding.
