    Summary

    Kojiro is spinning a pencil between his fingers when Kaoru sits down next to him, plops his lunch on the desk, and says, “We should make a bucket list.”

    Kojiro tilts his head and raises his eyebrows, questioning. “What’s brought this about?” he asks.

    Kaoru shrugs and pulls the lid off his bento box. “It’s our last year,” he says in lieu of a real explanation. “Don’t you think we’ve missed out on…stuff?”

    The summer before they graduate, Kojiro and Kaoru write a bucket list. It all snowballs from there.

    Summary

    Joe and Cherry run into a problem. Conspiracy theories have started to surface in some fan forums of "S" that the two of them are secretly dating one another.

    Both of them agree that the idea is absurd, but can't agree on which one of them would be the better boyfriend if they actually were dating. So they decide to have a competition, to see who can be the better romantic partner when pitted up against one another.

    Summary

    “Why the hell did you do that?”

    Kojiro sighs. “Not even a hello?”

    “Answer my question.”

    “Fine.” He drops a plate in the sink and rests his elbows on the bar. “People kept asking if we were dating, and I was thinking about it, and I guess…it was a spur-of-the-moment thing, okay?”

    “How do you just kiss someone on a spur-of-the-moment instinct?” Kaoru asks incredulously.

    Nanjo Kojiro is the cause of most (if not all) problems in Kaoru's life. Dating is one of them.

    Summary

    Kaoru knew his friendship with Kojiro was unusual to most people. They don't really act like how most friends would, but none of that ever really mattered. It worked for them and he was content for everything to stay the same.
    Then it suddenly wasn't and everything he knew about their relationship was turned on its head.
    And he feels stupid for not noticing it all sooner.

    (Or Kaoru is bad with feelings, makes an effort and learns about taking his time because love is hard. And it's even harder when you have to juggle loving your childhood best friend and dealing with the constant haunting presence of his ex-friend.)

    Summary

    “Let me make you an offer, Tartaglia,” he says in a suspiciously sweet tone. “I will court you and make my intent known to help give you a legitimate reason to reject Liyue’s emperor. In return, I need you to make this look convincing enough that I can escape the pressures of a bachelor for a while.”

    “What? The drinking, the dancing, the fucking?”

    Kaeya feigns a gasp, covering his mouth exaggeratedly with one hand. “My, what course language you use, good sir. Careful, lest you make me swoon.”

    “Wouldn’t dream of it.”

    (Or: Not all who play at allies are friends. Tartaglia knows this. Or, at least, he thinks he does.)
