    Summary

    Shouyou wonders what the people watching him go by would think if they knew. You see that one guy, Japan’s top scorer? I once played a game against him and won. You see the one making his Olympic debut before he’s even turned twenty? After matches, we would walk home together. He doesn’t like to hold hands but he likes to pull you close. We’d walk with our arms linked close and stars dotting the sky. It always smelled of cherry trees.

    Kageyama must be on top of the world, right now. Shouyou isn’t there with him. 

    It feels bittersweet, in a way. He’s not there, but he will be. Just because he took a detour doesn’t mean he’s stopped running; he might be taking the long way home, but he’ll get there when the time is right. He made a promise, after all. 

    He sends Kageyama a text. I saw you today. You were amazing.

    Then he races.

    Or, Hinata Shouyou takes the long way home. Featuring the universal experience of being other, untranslatable words, Carnival-induced catharsis, and of course, hunger.

    lovely. love the part about untranslateable words and seeing his journey and progress.

    "The view from the top is the ocean on all sides and an unforgiving sun. And home, too. It’s also home. He just had to take the long way around."

    listen to the earth breathe through the doors and windows of homes (careful to hear what you really want to know) by jublis
    (Chp 1 - done) Hinata's journey from an outsider and being very homesick in Brazil. Beautifully written, Oddly nostalgic.

    Such lovely phrases: "Oddly, it reminds him of Atsumu, and the Inarizaki High banner. Who needs memories? The only thing sports ever promise us is a few small moments of transcendence. And what the hell else is life made of, if not for moment?"

    "Between the sky and earth, we witness the spectacle of the world, Shouyou thinks. To Lucio, he says, “Not at all.” The view from the top is the ocean on all sides and an unforgiving sun. And home, too. It’s also home. He just had to take the long way around."

    GOD. SAUDADE:

    “But does saudade really feel like being sick?” Shouyou asks. He draws a pattern on the sand with his fingers, trying not to dig in. His palms are itching. “Can it feel like something else?”

    Heitor looks at him, considering, and then looks back out into the horizon, or somewhere close—it’s so dark you can’t really see where water ends and the sky begins.

    “Not everything feels like something else,” he says, “but I think it can feel like hunger.”

    And Shouyou bursts into tears.

    “I miss him, I miss him,” he repeats, in Portuguese, in Japanese, in English, because his brain is tired and his mouth is sour and his hands are empty, because his knees are always scraped and he is always thirsty. Because he is not ashamed of this little life he’s carved out for himself, but thinking about Kageyama never fails to make him stumble.
