    Summary

    Sarada is grateful to have her father in her life again, but the more she gets to know him, the more it hurts that there is a part of their family history—and a part of herself—that is still out of reach.

    Sasuke knows that the time has come to tell his daughter the truth about his past, but that means having to grapple with demons that he’s spent over a decade keeping locked inside. And when he begins to sense a familiar presence in the village, he can’t tell if it’s a fiction of his troubled mind or a sign that a new danger is on the horizon.

    Itachi has been pulled from his grave and forced into a wicked contract: He is sent to the Leaf Village to see his brother again and meet his niece—and must bring the Leaf Village down from the inside in exchange.

    Summary

    354.39 kilometers.
    220.20 miles.

    That's the distance between Sendai and Tokyo. It takes roughly an hour and a half, two hours at most for the Tohoku Shinkansen to get from one place to another.

    Tsukishima Kei and Kuroo Tetsurou have taken the same train back and forth countless times in the years they've been together. But when thinking about the ones with most impact, four specific trips come to mind.

    Summary

    That was the other thing: when Keiji had said he wanted to make his way home, Bokuto had agreed—as if it didn’t matter where they went. He hadn’t said "we should look for a community" or "there’s probably nothing there anymore".

    He’d just asked which way.

    ((the bokuaka zombie au literally no one asked for))

    Summary

    Keith is trying to make himself smaller, to bury his head deeper in his knees, and Lance’s heart freezes in his chest. Anger dissipating like an exploded firework, Lance lets his hand fall limply to his side, mind blurring with static. When he tries to speak, nothing comes out but a choked noise, so he tries again.

    “Keith,” he breathes. “Keith I’m not going to hurt you.”

     

    (Keith has an abusive past, but with time and care Lance helps him become accustomed to positive touch.)
