    Iwaizumi never really believed in love the way Oikawa did, the way it was all brilliant romance and sugar-sweet adoration and all that shoujo manga was made of. Except here he was, discovering that his life had somehow effortlessly become the nation’s bestselling love story, that Oikawa had taken the love that Iwaizumi had unwittingly been bleeding from every possible facet of his life and revealed it as exactly what it was, a romance.

    Fear seems to linger over their skins, like dust glued to their sweat, but Takahiro has given fear enough of his time to let it win now.

    Summary

    Akaashi pulls a muscle and Bokuto offers to help him with yoga. Akaashi knows a bad idea when he sees it, and he really only agrees because he's suddenly acquired a deeply rooted desire to see Bokuto do yoga.

    For multiple reasons.

    This is hell. This is truly hell. Akaashi has been abandoned by the gods and his own mind alike.
    At this point, Akaashi can’t tell if he’s intentionally messing up poses or if he’s just fried his brain and can’t even process the things that Bokuto is doing beyond the fact that a lot of them make his ass look very, very nice, but he does know that Bokuto is pressed up right behind him and is lifting his arms as Akaashi tries very, very hard not get an erection.

    “You’re not bad, but you’re really tense,” Bokuto says quietly.

    Akaashi nearly cackles. I’m a nice person. I don’t deserve this.
    Are you, though, his own brain replies. Are you really.

    Summary

    Kenma reluctantly spoons vanilla into his mouth, watching the sun set. And when everything is dusted in stripes of pale orange and purple and gold, he glances at Kuroo’s profile muddled in the shadows of the descending sun, and wonders whether he had somehow accidentally made friends with an impressive sort of boy. The ice-cream melted under his thumb feels maddeningly sticky, like he’ll never wash it away thoroughly enough and it would leave its mark wherever he touched before he could.

    Kenma has never really thought of anyone as good-looking before, never really cared enough about these things to notice them. But Kuroo is objectively so, in this light, in this angle—maybe all the time.

    (A Kuroo and Kenma life story, told in five acts).

    “Yes. I was ten. And I fell in love at first sight with the boy sitting on the swings at the park. He was watching me practice my serves and didn’t laugh every time I failed.”

    “Your bed is for sleeping and for sex,” the doctor insisted.

    Unfortunately, Bokuto wasn’t getting much of either.

    “You watch my ASMR videos?" he sounded… shocked.

    Bokuto could tell Akaashi had turned to look at him, so he looked at the ground.
    “I tried to stop, okay?” he growled, gritting his teeth. “Once I met you, I tried not to use em but I couldn’t sleep and there were like, stars under my skin when I heard you and I couldn’t stop.”

    Akaashi just hummed.

    “Look, I know it was super unprofessional cause of the work thing. Then you were just so mean so I didn’t even want to use ‘em, especially cause you’re so fucking hot on top of all that. I didn’t wanna dream about you, I didn’t, but I couldn’t sleep without them. I was going crazy! I thought you hating me would keep them from working but it didn’t! Your voice is so fucking magical and I need to get sleep or it’s so hard for me to do my job. God, I know you already think I’m a huge meathead, but still I’m really sorry and you never gotta talk to me again and–”

    His emotional cascade was cut off by the sound of the worst laugh he’d ever heard. It was worse than Kuroo’s, even. Akaashi laughed like a congested hyena and his perfect persona shattered into a million pieces by the third snort.

    “What about that was funny?” Bokuto protested furiously, at least able to form a coherent sentence now. “I’m baring my soul here and you’re laughing! See, this is what I’m talking about, why are you so mean?”

    “Y-you think I’m mean?” Akaashi gasped out, taking a few panting breaths.
