Bonus Round 1: Memory

Bonus Round 1: Memory


Let's start our summer by looking at the past—things that happened in canon, or maybe in an AU, or maybe just as wishful thinking...


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on June 9 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.

Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. (There are changes from last year!)



RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post! You prompt should consist of one scenario beginning with the phrase "Remember when", along with any ship/ot3/etc. from our list of nominated fandoms.
    • Your prompts can take the form of recalling canon facts/events ("Remember when Nozomi and Eli got parfaits after school?"), non-canon events ("Remember when Megumi and Jin met at the Tadokoro Family Reunion?"), or somewhere in-between ("Remember when Bokuto and Kenma first met?"). Headcanons and AUs are welcome!
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. (This is not the sports anime gen olympics.) Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Rei & Nagisa). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Rei/Nagisa). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • Post fills by leaving a responding comment to a prompt with your newly-created work.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.

barely-there implied sex [sfw though]

suggested listening



oikawa expected it to happen in a locker room. something hot and heated after a match, the inevitable conclusion to heated looks exchanged from across the court, coming together to close the distance between opposite sides of the net. he expected it to be him pressing tobio against the cold metal, hands pushing up his shirt, mouth on tobio's and tobio, as always, more than meeting oikawa's unspoken challenge—keep up. he imagined hands tangled in his hair, wrapping his hands on tobio's ass and pressing close, closer—

he's certain that such an event is in their future—with room for multiple variations, even.

but it's not how their first kiss happens.

————


their first kiss happens late one night, over diagrams and stat books.

it happens late one night in the office attached to the gym, with just the one lamp on, just enough for oikawa to make out the blue in tobio's eyes, a week before the end-of-year tournament after tobio's first year at oikawa's university.

their first kiss happens when oikawa notices tobio isn't studying the data from their last match. judging by the flush on his cheeks, he was studying something else entirely before oikawa turned around.

an inevitability.

oikawa wonders how much of their lives has been building up to this, how long they were working towards this conclusion, orbiting each other for years only to collide after a year of working side-by-side on the same team.

the space between them melts away in the breadth of a second; one moment he's at the whiteboard, and the next standing in front of the chair. he doesn't pull his gaze away, not once. to tobio's credit, he doesn't look away either.

it's a reversal of the past year, where oikawa spent much of his time unable to face head-on the reality of his shifting and growing relationship with tobio (and it is a growing one, because how else does one articulate the way someone becomes part of your daily life?).

for years, even, he'd been unable to wrap his arms around the reality of whatever it is he and tobio have been working up to, all because the implications were too much to even consider unpacking.

but he can't avert his gaze any longer. he has spent so much time looking at kageyama tobio and refusing to even see kageyama tobio, and that's a dichotomy he can no longer juggle.

it doesn't hurt that they've both grown, in all senses of the word. it doesn't hurt that tobio is now very easy to look at (though in some respects that makes it harder for oikawa to look, because acknowledging such a thing carries implications of its own).

tobio, who's grown two or three centimeters taller than oikawa, which makes calling him tobio-chan all the richer; tobio, who's no longer a awkward high school student, who instead carries himself in a way that makes such a patronizing nickname difficult for even oikawa to get his tongue around. tobio, who has kept oikawa on his toes for years.

it's a lot to reconcile.

he draws up next to tobio and leans in over his shoulder, ostensibly looking at the data books sprawled out across the table. tobio radiates warmth, something oikawa can feel when he lets their shoulders brush.

"think we should call it a night?" he asks, his voice low.

"oikawa-san..."

oikawa turns and that's it, that's—

that's how their first kiss happens.

choice of setting aside, he'd expected something different. something urgent, something frantic. and it is that, but there's also a sense of determination, a kind of confidence oikawa wasn't expecting from tobio. in the back of his mind, he wonders just who tobio has done this with, but then he readjusts his focus. he presses down, presses his lips fully against tobio's.

tobio turns so he fully faces oikawa, so the angle isn't strained, so oikawa can very easily slide himself into tobio's lap.

he does just that, taking tobio's hands at his waist as a cue, straddling tobio's thighs. his hands reach up to cup tobio's face, fingers skimming the surface of his cheek and neck, eliciting a gasp.

no, their first kiss isn't quite what he expected, but those expectations hardly matter when they're getting remade and rebuilt, possibilities opening up and growing by the second. tobio is hungry and needy, and so is oikawa, hands seeking whatever they can find, and oikawa knows he wants to find everything. he wants to overturn every stone, to ease whatever nervous energy is vibrating in the air around them, to make this less a shot in the dark and give it a basis in something solid.

to make it's continuation an inevitability.




[an: this was one of those fills that a) went a different direction than i thought it would and b) kept growing and growing and i had to put my foot down before it became a three-part series smh @ self. hope this is okay!!]

THIS IS THE KIND OF CONTENT I'M HERE FOR MMM OH MY GDO KILL ME WITH OIKAGE

but anyways... to echo totheriver, this is gorgeous. your prose is so airy and atmospheric and soft, an oikage that we don't usually get to see. yet there's an obvious smolder to it like the way that the kiss actually feels and just. take my heart, take my feelings, thank you for this good oikage content

I really love this! I love the way you structured it, with the way Oikawa believes the kiss should have happened, versus how it actually is. I also love the mood you've managed to evoke, subtle and almost wistful, building slowly as the story progresses. What a nice little fic, I'm glad you wrote it.

mentions of anxiety and panic

762 words

Oikawa’s not even sure why he’s here, he thinks for the millionth time as he stands by the Karasuno high school gates. They need to work on their landscaping, the street out front could use some repaving, why the hell had Tobio-chan gone to this stupid school in the first place? It doesn’t matter, because Tobio isn’t here to answer his mental question. He’s in there. Somewhere. Probably trying to hit a serve as hard and accurately as Oikawa himself, and he can keep practicing all night but he won’t get any closer.

But he can’t keep practicing all night, because then Oikawa would have to wait for him all night, and that absolutely was not happening.

All this would have been easier if he had the stupid kid’s phone number. If he had his phone number he could have demanded that Tobio be waiting for him at the school gate when he got there, and they could have avoided the current situation all together.

The current situation could be called: sudden inexplicable panic.

Oikawa Tooru does not panic. He rides out his simmering anxiety until it’s just a low buzz of discomfort in the back of his mind and then he succeeds, and it goes away for a few minutes. He doesn’t let it rule him, and he certainly doesn’t have any sort of breakdown in front of a rival school waiting for his now rival-former kouhai to finish his late practice because he’s thinking too hard about what he’s come here to do.

Because, the thing is, the reason that this panic is threatening the back of his throat and making his palms sweat, is that he’s come here to ask him on a date.

Before he can sink too deep into his impending breakdown he hears the chatter of boy’s voices coming down the walk from the gym entrances and looks around the gate-pillar to see who is coming. It’s the team, or he thinks it is. He hasn’t paid much attention to the other boys, but when he sees Chibi-chan bouncing excitedly around Tobio he knows his target’s been acquired.

He steps out, in full view in front of the team, smiling his biggest more sinister smile and he almost laughs when the first few boys stumble in their steps.

“Tobio-chan.” He starts, “We need to talk.”

This elicits a few murmured ”oooh” from some of them but Tobio just looks obstinate. Chibi-chan tries to stop him for a second, tugging at his sleeve as he separates himself from the group to approach Oikawa. They go around the edge of the gate, and Oikawa waits until the rest of the team is out of sight down the road before he speaks.

Tobio looks impatient and sort of upset with his hands in his pockets and his head down. He’s kicking a rock that’s probably just a dirt clod deeper into the ground and getting his shoes dirty.

“I came here to ask you something.” He almost doesn’t mean to sound dramatic, to be imposing and aggressive the way he always is when his guard is up and he’s presenting a front.

Tobio doesn’t seem to notice, or react any differently than he normally would. He raises his eyebrows slightly and lifts his chin enough to show he’s acknowledged the statement.

“Do you--” He starts, and then stops because Tobio has opened his mouth as if he had something to say. “What?” Oikawa asks.

“Will you go out with me… Oikawa-san?” He says, and his voice is so reminiscent of how it sounded in middle school, but with the deeper timbre that he’d gained just in the last year or so and Oikawa is at once confused and furious.

“What the hell are you asking, Tobio-chan?! I came all the way out here to see you and then you ask me that?”

He looks ready to bolt now, stepping back a half step and pulling his hands out of his pockets as if to fend off Oikawa’s angry response.

Oikawa closes the gap between them, just half a meter or so, and grabs Tobio’s shoulders. “I was going to ask you first, but you always have to win, don’t you?” That look of shock, so delicious to see, makes Oikawa want to lick his lips, but instead he kisses it off Tobio’s face.

When he pulls back, a few seconds of lip-contact later, Tobio’s face is flushed and obnoxiously attractive. “You better be taking me some place nice, Tobio-chan.”
