3. Absolutely no getting emotionally attached.
4. No kissing outside filming.
Miya Atsumu and Sakusa Kiyoomi get cast in a gay film together where they, in the words of The Great Philosopher Rihanna, fell in love in a hopeless place.

The MSBY Black Jackals were vacationing on an island when lockdown measures were put in place due to a pandemic. While the rest of their teammates managed to get on the last flight back to Japan, Kiyoomi and Atsumu didn't make it.
To be stuck in close quarters with your enemy-slash-teammate in a foreign country for an indefinite period of time...it shouldn’t be too bad, right?
(Or: Due to an unfortunate series of events, Kiyoomi and Atsumu get stuck on an island together. For seven months.)
Sara stops in her tracks. Childe nearly runs into her before he stops and takes a step back.
“Sara? You good?”
“Do you know what a beard is?”
The non-sequitur makes Childe cross his arms and furrow his brow. “You mean the hair on your chin?”
“No, you idiot.” She shakes her head, turning around. “A beard. Like, two gay people getting into a relationship so people think they’re straight.”
(Or, Childe and Sara pretend to date each other. Unfortunately, Sara doesn't know how to not simp for Baal, and Childe doesn't know why talking about it with Zhongli is so hard.)
“I just got this job, I’m not givin’ it up for some moral boost ‘cause I actually need to pay my rent, ya insensitive -” Atsumu waves his hands around, trying and failing to come up with the right word to convey the amount of injustice that this gaunt motherfucker has brought into his relatively simple life thus far.
“If you can’t pay your rent, go get a job at the McDonald’s over by 8th Street,” Sakusa growls, “it’ll pay more than your researcher position.”
If you even attempt assault on a coworker, forget teaching about cells - you’ll fucking be in one, Atsumu.
Sakusa Kiyoomi needs to conquer many lifelong fears in order to enter his first romantic relationship.
Miya Atsumu is there to guide him every step of the way, even if the one Sakusa desires is someone else.
