    Summary

    Or maybe, just maybe, it was simply Oikawa—the boy who cleaves the air with a swing of his arm and the friend who eats half of his lunch and the lover who makes him feel invincible and weightless and weak all at once.

    Iwaizumi loves him. Iwaizumi loves him and it’s terrifying how that love consumes him just so.

    or: Iwaizumi has had many firsts with Oikawa, but what's one more?

    Summary

    Clearly Iwaizumi had a checkered past. Kyoutani has never asked about it, nor has Iwaizumi ever brought it up. He knows it’s a sore spot for his mentor, just like the gorgeous Monte Carlo he keeps hidden away is, so he leaves it alone. Out on the streets, you learn a little something about when to turn a blind eye in order to survive; Kyoutani knows better than most to leave the past of men like Iwaizumi well alone.

    It’s probably got something to do with the boy in the polaroids, though.

    Retired pickpocket & conman Iwaizumi Hajime receives an invitation he can't possibly decline, pulling him back into his old life to work a job with his old friends and ex-lover Oikawa Tooru. His mostly-legit apprentice Kyoutani gets dragged along for the ride. It's a complete mess.

    Summary

    Sawamura Daichi, perfect son-in-law #1 and regular at the coffee shop Oikawa works at, decides one day to leave his full loyalty card (and it's subsequent free reward) behind the counter to help out a friend who is having a terrible day. They say kindness can change the world - Oikawa doesn't quite know about that, but Sawamura's single gesture might have just set him on the path to true love, because Iwaizumi Hajime is everything he wants, and maybe everything he needs.

    It's not a smooth journey, though. There are bumps along the way - like terrible latte art, or Oikawa's distinct lack of chill. At least he has Daisho's snark to guide him along. Sort of.

    Summary

    “Shut up!” Iwaizumi signed aggressively, fingers moving with the fluidity of someone who had grown up using them.

    It was easy to see, even from that distance, that Oikawa’s eyes had widened, probably at the surprise of having this stranger sign at him before speaking, but quickly his features softened. He grinned, looking way too happy for someone who was currently in an artificially lit library at 2 in the morning with no coffee cup in sight.

    “No,” Oikawa signed back, before adding the sign for heart.

    Fucking insufferable.

     

    Iwaizumi Hajime can't understand how someone who can't even speak can be so loud. Telling them to keep quiet turns into the most important moment of Iwaizumi's life.

    Summary

    It’s Tokyo 2021, backdrop for the XXXII Summer Olympiad Games. Oikawa Tooru returns to Japan after a triumphant, eight-year long run as pro setter in Argentina’s professional volleyball League. And it's been just as long since Hajime watched him disappear across the oceans, maybe never to return.

    On reuniting with your best friend, standing atop the world stage, and trying to catch wisps of a golden boy. An Olympic tale, one lifetime in the making.
