    Summary

    Sometimes Hajime wonders if Oikawa sees the same things he does when he looks out over their neighborhood (right now it’s two kids kicking up pebbles on their bikes, lugging backpacks filled with walkie-talkies and water bottles and alien scanners, not sure if they’re heading down to the forest or up to the river but positive that they’ll get there together). Back then he and Oikawa saw the same thing when they looked down the road – a straight shot to another adventure, if they just pedaled fast enough.

    Sometimes Hajime worries they stopped seeing the same thing a while ago and he never noticed.

    Being snowed in with all of Seijou volleyball in his childhood home brings back a lot of memories for Iwaizumi, because it's kinda Oikawa's childhood home too.

    Summary

    “Remember that you got yourself into this mess, Tooru.” Iwaizumi says softly, words a little shaky and conveying his own nerves, hot breath dancing across Oikawa’s cheek, and –

    Oh my God, Oikawa thinks, waiting for the punchline to indicate that this is a joke as he feels a flush rise up his neck and filter into his cheeks, this is actually happening.

    And then the string and the tension snaps, and Iwaizumi is kissing him.

    ---

    Or: Oikawa’s and Iwaizumi’s transition from we’re just two friends doing homework in the same room to we’re definitely more than friends because now we’re making out comes slowly, and then all at once.

    Summary

    “What are you trying to say to me, Tooru?”

    Oikawa sucks in a breath and continues staring at the water. He should have known that Iwaizumi wouldn’t let him back out – and that’s another reason why Oikawa loves him so; Iwaizumi forces Oikawa to show up, forces him to work through the things that make him uncomfortable, forces him to be the best version of himself.

    After a moment, Oikawa responds. “I’m trying to say that I missed you.”

    Iwaizumi pauses. “And I said that I know that.”

    Oikawa sighs and presses the heels of his palms to his eyes in frustration. “No, I don’t think you do.” He murmurs. He drops his hands back to his lap and turns to Iwaizumi so that he is finally looking at him. “I’m saying that I missed you. Miss you. I want – “

    There are fingers on his cheek, stealing the breath from Oikawa’s lungs. The pool lights reflect in Iwaizumi’s eyes like twinkling stars. He is beautiful, like an untamed garden or a wild, rushing waterfall. Oikawa’s heart feels so full of adoration that it hurts.

    Summary

    Oikawa follows it, not sparing a thought about getting lost —he knows this area well enough, and the sound doesn’t seem to be coming from very far.

    When he sees it, his breath hitches in his throat.

    It’s a puppy. Or rather, it’s a wolf pup, probably a month or two old. Its fur is a dark grey, nearly black, and it’s curled around itself, licking his hind left paw.

    It must have smelled Oikawa, because olive green eyes are on him in an instant. Its expression changes just like that, from pain to fear, and it curls tighter, trying to appear smaller.

    And then Oikawa notices it, notices the source of the pup’s pain. There’s a thorn stuck in its paw, the one it was licking. It’s big, the part that protrudes maybe as long as his pinky. No wonder it had been crying.

    Or, the iwaoi Little Red Riding Hood AU with Iwaizumi being a wolf —but not bad.

    Summary

    "Oh, shut up," Hajime defends, waving his hand dismissively. "So they think you're... well. Desirable. Don't let it get to your head, pretty boy."

    Iwa's tongue slips. That is all.
