    Summary

    When it was that they started yearning towards the encroaching sea, no one knows, as records were hardly a priority at the time. But - whether due to the radiation, some timely genetic sport, the intervention of passing aliens or simply the power of wishing - there came a point when most of the remaining humans burst out in spontaneous gills, said goodbye to the land and returned to their long-lost womb.

    And they vowed to themselves, and to their children, never to leave the snug, embracing water ever again.

    Summary

    “Y’know, if you want I could teach you!”

    Ah, shit. Tommy hadn’t meant to say that. This is why one shouldn’t go up to random strangers and inquire after their wellbeing; you end up offering your highly unqualified skills as a swimming teacher.

    Or, Tommy Innes, swimming prodigy, meets Wilbur, a guy who absolutely cannot swim, and thinks 'God, I have to help this idiot.'

    This is for drhair76's sports day collection! I'm going to be honest, I ended up posting this later than expected because I literally rewrote this entire thing three days ago, so now it's longer and also in chapters. Oops?

    Title is a quote from W.H. Auden.

    Summary

    Tommy knew what to do, it was like clockwork. In for four strokes, up for air, breathe on the right. Do it again. Do it faster. Better. Perfect. Tommy didn’t have to look up to know the wall was near, he had swam this length at least a thousand times, it was muscle memory.
    Tuck.
    Twist.
    Turn.
    Release.

    Summary

    Swimming is not a poetic sport.

    Tommy doesn’t think that even Wilbur could make some grand epic about a sport where practice amounts to staring at a black line for hours on end. During practice, it’s just you, the workout posted on the kickboard, and that black line.

    He’d be lying if he said it wasn’t intense, though.

    Summary

    swimming has been tommy’s whole life since he was a small child, since he was taken on a school trip to a pool and dumped in without any lessons, expected to fail and instead showing talent. it’s what he’s good at—great at, even.

    so why is it that tommy feels like he’s drowning whenever he’s in the water?

    Summary

    Tommy hates swimming. He hates how his body is sore in every muscle after long hours of practice, he hates how he can never get rid of the smell of chlorine, he hates how the chemicals bleach his hair a brighter blonde, and he hates how it's the only reason his parents even look at him. He can't quit though, no. Not when swimming is the only thing he's good at. Not when his parents' faces light up and they smile at him when he brings home a trophy. Not when swimming is who he is.

    Summary

    10,305 individual athletes participating in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Games. 10,305 frustrated athletes were trapped inside the bubble they called the Olympic Village with no means of leaving the grounds or releasing their pent-up stress. Amongst the almost indestructible cardboard beds that were rumored to prevent athlete contact and the condom supply they supposedly cannot use, the message the Olympic organizers tried to send was mixed. Many athletes saw this as a challenge, one athlete being Team Korea’s one and only, John Suh. The famed swimmer was ready and willing to take on this challenge but he couldn’t do it alone. He needed a partner for it and you—best friend, fellow teammate, and competitive swimmer—were the perfect match.

    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya never really expected to get far as a swimmer, but when he made the swim team at UA his freshman year of college, it was practically all he could think about doing. He especially didn’t expect how dramatically that swim team would change his life. How could he have known that one day, that lap, the dive- would change everything?

    Shoto Todoroki was handed that same swim team on a platter, and everyone knew it. Some even resented him for it. With his father breathing down his neck, he had no choice but to join, despite his ambivalence. How was he supposed to know that one person on that team would change his life for the better?

    They both, over the course of attending UA, would learn a lot about themselves, each other, and life. Friends, teachers, coaches, everyone would contribute to their growth and to how this chapter of their stories would end.

    Summary

    Klay knows Steph, at least in theory. They were both on the olympic qualifying team before Rio. Steph made it, Klay didn’t. He was close too, milliseconds, which doesn’t really mean shit in swimming - it still wasn’t good enough. Steph didn’t win an individual race, but he got gold on the relay. He’s projected to win big at the next olympics, a pure freestyler. He’s got the smoothest stroke Klay’s ever seen, like Steph can make the water do whatever he wants. (Repost)

    Summary

    Luz Noceda lives with the most skilled swimmer on the Boiling Isles, Eda Clawthorne. She's been living with her for a year, and things are going well! However, as the new swim season starts, a new Golden Guard on the Emperor's team is assigned. And Luz realizes how absolutely lonely and sad this guy is.

    Throughout swim meets, texts, and high school life, she makes it her personal goal (along with her friends' help) to befriend the Golden Guard and help him learn how to live as a happy and mentally well teenager.

    (or, alternatively: the swim team, chatfic, high school AU that is incredibly self indulgent)
