    Summary

    The ball rolls gently on the ground, all the way to Tobio’s feet. He bends down to pick it up, and something in his blood sizzles like lightning. He looks at the leathery surface, then at his sister’s wild smile and neat hair; looks back at the court and the net, where the boys are running a spiking practice. Everyone else seems focused on the attackers, but Tobio’s eyes are zeroed on the one tossing. Set, connect, spike. Bang-bang-bang. 

    No one wins without the setter. 

    Tobio tosses the ball to Miwa and says, “Again.”

     

    Or, Kageyama Tobio grows up, older, and not that much wiser at all. Featuring brothers and sisters, anger, connection, and that moment when someone finally catches up with you.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Head to ball, Kageyama decides not to pray. Instead, he reminds his grandfather not of nationals games, or finals, or games where people flew and made monsters of themselves. He tells him about that all the time. That for the years he spent at Karasuno High School, a crow, he was also once a little falcon, botching serves on purpose in the fear of a game that would end too soon.

    Do you remember that day?

    Why, of course I remember that day, Tobio. What about it?

    Kageyama throws the ball into the air. When he jumps and makes relentless contact, he hopes his grandfather feels it, somewhere — not as a prayer, but an assurance.

    I just wanted to tell you that I don't botch serves anymore.“

    THIS!!!!??????? SO RAW. My heartstrings were tugged. Just so beautiful. An ode to Kageyama, a boy who has his own language.

    Summary

    Police officer Kuroo Tetsurou has spent his entire career trying to bring down the once-prominent Yakuza presence in his city.

    The Fukurodani Group is the last bastion of the old Yakuza way. While their influence and power have waned in recent years, they are now under the leadership of Bokuto Koutarou, a wild legacy kumicho.

    When a raid on one of the Fukurodani Group’s safehouses goes awry, Kuroo is saddled with an amnesiac Akaashi Keiji, who was once the most loyal aide to Bokuto himself.

    Summary

    As the newly appointed cultural liaison to Northern Water Tribe, Zuko is the first Fire Nation Citizen to step foot inside the city's walls in nearly a century. He's determined to prove himself—to the Fire Lord and to his father—even if the Water Tribe's spirit-touched prince seems to want nothing to do with him.

    Summary

    “Blessed Spirit, we thank you for the gift of this child’s life. We are forever in your debt.” The whole village is kneeling now, even the tiniest toddlers flopped down on their stomachs doing their best approximation of a bow. “Please, won’t you give us a name to call you? We would like to properly express our gratitude.”

    Oh.

    Well shit.

    (Where Zuko saves a little Earth Kingdom girl from drowning, the villagers think he's a Spirit, build him a shrine, and long story short, a fake story about the Blue Spirit who dances with dragons suddenly becomes very real.)
