    Summary

    “Stop fighting this, Akaashi. Just...stop it. You don’t have to be fucking perfect all the time. Life doesn’t work that way. We mess up, we cry, we shout, and guess what? Sometimes we manage to make things bigger and better than anyone before us. That’s what we did. That’s what I’m gonna do with my new team and that’s what you are gonna do here.”
     

    After winning their first match as a revamped team, Akaashi realizes he doesn’t want to be the new Fukurodani captain anymore. In the downward spiral of his mental breakdown, everything is a mess. Until, suddenly, it isn’t.

    Summary

    Based on a Tumblr prompt by: dgalerab

    Akaashi Keiji does not drink. Until one night, when someone decides to splurge on some peppermint schnapps and Kahlua coffee liqueur.

    The rest is something not discussed.

    Bokuto doesn't mind driving across town to answer the call of his favourite little crow, even if it's 11 PM on a school night. He also doesn't mind when this very attractive guy asks him out for burgers. But what happens when he gets a little more than he bargained for?

    Summary

    The first thing Akaashi says is, "hello," followed by, "my name is Akaashi Keiji," and, "is this where the volleyball orientation is being held?" Bokuto knows because he has a good memory, especially when it comes to Akaashi, and he wouldn't forget a thing like that. He may only be a second-year - technically a first-year since he's barely a week into being an upperclassman - but Bokuto's determined to have somebody call him, 'senpai,' and if luck is on his side, maybe this will be a young wing spiker who can take over the team when he graduates. As it turns out, only half of that dream comes true.

    Summary

    Adolescence is hard. Especially when you're gay, your parents ignore that fact, you can't find a suitable date, and you end up asking a perfect stranger to a family dinner pretending to be your boyfriend. And that's the easy part.

    Summary

    “AKAASHI!!!”

    The sound of squealing tires. The smell of burnt rubber. Neon lights bright in his face, or were those headlights? Pain… then… nothing.

    Bokuto is dead and he's not quite sure how or why. All he knows is there's a strange person wearing his mother's face insisting he watch a film of his life.

    What good can come from learning where he went wrong? What can possibly change?

    And why does he have to watch himself say goodbye to the one person he ever loved again?
