    Summary

    There was a time - perhaps maybe a decade ago, when Issei was inexperienced and scared and more easily overwhelmed by the enormity of his feelings - when he would’ve shied away from this. From Takahiro. It had been self-defence, really; trying to shield his overflowing heart from the way Takahiro seemed to constantly leave it exposed. Issei knows better now. He trusts Takahiro with his heart in his hands, soft and familiar, and he sleeps easily knowing it’ll be treated with the utmost care. So in moments like this he is content to smile, to listen to his husband sing off-key as he collects his toiletries, waiting for the water to be warm enough to step under because he takes his showers just a scant degree from scalding.
    They have all the time in the world.

     

    Issei and Takahiro return home from their high school reunion. The night goes as follows.

    Swan Song: a song of great sweetness said to be sung by a dying swan; the last act or manifestation of someone or something, farewell appearance

    Matsukawa met Hanamaki on an early autumn afternoon, and ever since that day, his heart won't settle. There's a bittersweet love-song in his mind, and a strawberry blond lover before him.

    Credits for the lyrics go to Mitski for Strawberry Blond.

    Summary

    When Issei is seven, his Pandora's box opens. At twenty-three, it explodes.

    Prince Takahiro is unobtainable. From him, Issei hides two secrets: his magic and his love. But, as the years progress, these secrets become harder to keep. Then, Prince Takahiro dies.


    “Issei,” says Iwaizumi from beside him. His voice is firm, if not wet. It sounds like a warning but Issei, much like with many things in his life, ignores it. 

    Beneath his hands, the grass shudders and twists. He pays the rapid spread of energy through his body no heed and instead draws Takahiro up into his arms.

    “No,” he says again, and it’s like a clap of thunder. It’s like a thousand voices layered over his own. There is a heartbeat beneath his fingers that no longer moves; there is a mouth pressed to his neck that no longer smiles; there is a love in his arms who no longer takes breath. No.

    Summary

    In 2012, the men’s national volleyball team took home the bronze at the Asian Cup. Tokyo Skytree opened to the public. Also, the dashing Hanamaki Takahiro and painfully cool Matsukawa Issei started a radio show out of Aoba Johsai’s abandoned A/V room and accidentally became the two most popular guys in school.
