Sun God Hinata
‘ “I bet,” Tobio growled, “that you can’t even grant wishes at all.”
Hinata smiled, but his expression was terrifying. His eyes were wide and bright, too bright, burning gold. “Is that a challenge?” the little god asked.
Tobio smiled back, and his eyebrows drew down to form a frightening grin of his own. “Yeah. It is.”
The sun god’s hand blurred out, bending him forward, warm fingers pressed to the back of Tobio’s neck.
“Then tell me your wish,” Hinata said in his ear, his breath hot as his lips brushed over Tobio’s skin.’
Once a year, all the villages that follow the way of the sun offer up one of their own to be taken to the sun god's divine temple. Kageyama Tobio, an orphan and loner, never wanted to be chosen—and until the sun god appeared, no one ever wanted to choose him, either. All Tobio wants is to find a place he fits in. What he actually gets is another story entirely.

“I’m not like you, I’m not even like all your other followers, I’m just—” Tobio stared harder into the mirror, trying to find himself in its reflection. “I’m not really anything.”
Hinata pulled the golden mirror out of his hands. “Tobio,” Hinata said softly. He slid his hands over Tobio’s cheeks, the warmth of his palms seeping under Tobio’s skin. “You are something.”
Hinata sees many things, when he looks at Tobio.

'When Hinata first found his own bright sun, it took him by surprise. Because Kageyama had none of those things. He was bitter, brash, dark—but with an intensity burning away inside him that nearly matched Hinata's own, despite his mortality.
And he was, without question, beautiful.
It took Hinata some time, to realize Kageyama didn't know this about himself yet.'
The whole world, seen through Hinata's eyes.
