***

Twenty years ago, there was excitement about the new planets; it was well-known fact that they were bleeding the Home Planet of its resources, consuming more than their arable land could support as the population exploded. When the population passed ten billion, the Migration began.

Hundreds of thousands of people were shipped off the Home Planet, boxed and frozen like ready-meals. Start your new life, the commercials enticed, take hold of a new adventure on a new planet. Two years later and communication was lost; five years later and no one will ever forget the recording that leaked into the news.

Twenty seconds. It takes twenty seconds of footage, shot from the observation camera of the Red Pioneer of the desolate landscape, the trapped people begging for help-- they were starving, screaming and going mad. They were going mad, breaking into factions to fight over the few resources that remained. The bloodshed was abrupt and the camera disconnected.

The outside planets were death traps, and everyone knew it.

Companies went bankrupt, activists and politicians backpedaling as quickly as they had offered up the Migration plan in the first place. In ten years as much as one-tenth of the population will be in space, they had said.

Truth was, they didn't have a choice: the current population was draining the planet dry.

And then one fuckface had the brilliant idea to use the planets as jails for prisoners. Minor criminals were grafted into maintenance: one round of work on the transport ships, maintaining the 'droids and ensuring the criminals in cryo stayed that way. At the surface of the planet, jettison the criminals, deactivate the cryo, and fly away. If they could do that, they were allowed back onto the Home Planet. Easy enough.

Except, no. Don't fucking forget about the people they trap onto the planet of these forsaken planets. The average sentence of a criminal trapped on the surface of one of these planets is ten years. The public is very cheery and shit about using criminals to terraform these planets into something more useful.

Reality is: The supplies packed into the "new and improved" cryo chambers are as follows: thirty days of food and water, one deflector shield, two complete pairs of standard self-repairing clothing, and one plasma knife.

The terraforming equipment that criminals are supposed to run? Are self-sufficient planet destroyers that will destabilize miles of ground at a time, and generate enough heat and force that any human nearby will be reduced to fertilizer in the more habitable surface.

Hiruma scoffs, dragging his scarf over his mouth and activating his deflector shield as the terraformers start working. Half a damn planet away, and it still whips up a rockstorm harsh enough to tear through flesh. He crouc hes over his prize, a long abandoned cryo chamber from some poor fuck before him. It's easy work to remove the remaining supplies, carefully tear out the camera system and other circuitry-- Hiruma's been doing it for weeks, ever since he realized he wasn't the only bastard they sent to Earth Sphere 21. The steel casing of the cryo pod is tempting, but too heavy for him to drag to where he needs to go.

If you want to stay alive for the duration of your sentence, you have to live on the land that has settled after the terraformers have ravaged it. It doesn't align well with having a permanent structure of any sort. Hiruma tucks the equipment into his cloak; he'll have enough to replace the cameras that were destroyed in the wake of the machines.

A beep from his wrist console draws his attention, and Hiruma transfers his camera to the hotspot on the planet just in time to see a fresh cryo pod crash into the surface.

Hiruma glances at the sun, and then sighs. Two fucking months, and the Home Planet bastards think the place is looking for a new resident to serve a sentence in isolation?

Despite himself, Hiruma switches views to see the cryo pod slide open, exposing the contents to the planet air. It takes two minutes for the gas to filter out completely and the front latch to completely disengage.

The man who emerges from the pod is tall, built on heavier lines than Hiruma. His dreadlocks are long and dark, and Hiruma finds himself fixating on how alive the man seems, so different from the rock and gravel of the land that surrounds them.

The newcomer moves away from the cryo pod without looting it first: a bizarre thing until Hiruma realizes he's getting closer and closer to the camera. The man tears the camera from the ground, snarls a single word that sends a chill through Hiruma's entire body, and then the feed dies.

There's a shift in atmosphere when Akashi walks into the room, flanked by the rest of his team, at the Vanguard Inter-High.

Rakuzan has been the strongest team for years on end but it's different now. They were always powerful, always a little overwhelming in their strength.

They've never been quite this terrifying before. There's never been someone like Akashi on their team, walking with his head held high, something in his eyes making everyone else around him lower their heads as he walks past.

"Sei-chan," Mibuchi is cheerful as ever, unbothered by the sudden silence that falls upon their entrance. "How many turns are you going to win in today?"

"Don't spoil it," Hayama protests. "I like it best when he declares it right at the start of the match."

Behind them, unnoticed by most of the room, Mayuzumi sighs to himself and wishes that he was somewhere else, reading in peace, instead of waiting for Akashi to make a last minute substitution to the team, just for his own amusement.

They're not at the finals yet and Akashi is predictable enough, to someone like Mayuzumi. He might just be one of the reserve players in this three-on-three match, but he can tell that Mibuchi will go first and defeat whoever their opponents send out first as cannon fodder.

Nebuya won't play the second match. Akashi will send Mayuzumi out instead, in the game that doesn't matter. If Mayuzumi wins, Akashi won't need to play his hand until the next round. If he loses, Akashi will crush their third player.

Four turns, Mayuzumi thinks to himself. Akashi has always liked the number four best.

Today, there's tension in his shoulders, his fingers resting on his deck box where it sits on his belt. He's ready to play, and Mayuzumi notices. Akashi is the one who has taught him to notice these sorts of things, after all.

Mibuchi wins. Mayuzumi plays an ordinary and ultimately subpar game, losing with his opponent on five damage.

Akashi steps to the table, setting his deck in its place and putting his starting vanguard down. His opponent looks shaken already. Mayuzumi took notice of the way he'd hoped his teammate would lose, just to avoid this.

"Four turns," Akashi announces, to his opponent, to the room at large. There's something wrong about his eyes; nobody has figured out how to describe it, other than wrong. It happens in every game that he plays and face to face, it's even more terrifying than his perfect win record. "Four turns is all it will take to win, with Chaos-Breaker Dragon."

Mayuzumi snorts quietly at the unnecessary dramatics. He swears he can feel Akashi's eyes on him, even though Akashi is looking at the hand that he's drawn. Then again, it always feels like Akashi is watching everything all at once.

He shrugs it off when the match starts. It doesn't matter, after all. Better Akashi than him.

JP Celeb News jpcelebnews
BATTLE OF THE BREAK-UP SONGS: The secret performer for tonight’s Japan Record Awards is Oikawa Tooru! Will he and ex-flame Futakuchi Kenji butt heads backstage?

#TeamTooru☆ @oikqwqs
i actually kind of feel bad for Futakuchi stans because they have to pretend his incessant wailing actually sounds like singing

#TEAMKENJI@futakuchiiis
OMG my friend is outside the awards venue & saw kenji go up to a girl with a #teamtooru shirt and sign it she was so dumbstruck i’m crying


+



When Futakuchi sees Oikawa for the first time in nearly a year, it’s in the middle of a career-high performance at the Japan Record Awards.

Even with the blinding stage lights steered onto his face, Futakuchi can still make Oikawa out in the audience, sitting front and center. He’s smiling, and Futakuchi is still fluent enough in Oikawa’s expressions to recognize his “I know you’re singing an unflattering break-up song about me, but I’m really quite above it all, and I want everyone to know that” face. What a fucking fake.

But Futakuchi is, as always, a consummate professional. A performer. An artist. Seeing Oikawa after all this time definitely doesn’t throw him off his game, and he definitely doesn’t flub his final pre-chorus and have to ad-lib some half-hearted runs to cover it up. Nothing of the sort.

Futakuchi takes a bow after his performance, heads backstage, and pretends not to feel Oikawa’s eyes on his back the entire time.


+


Even among the chaos backstage, Oikawa looks the same as always -- effervescent, attractive, and unbothered. At least, until he spots Futakuchi loitering outside his dressing room and their eyes meet. Then Oikawa looks quite bothered indeed.

Futakuchi is expecting to have some of Oikawa’s bodyguards hustling him out of sight, but Oikawa just sighs, motioning for him to come in, “What do you want, Kenji?”

“Just to say good luck,” Futakuchi says, a bit taken aback. Maybe he should just take the high road and be friendly, avoid an incident.

Oikawa scoffs. He’s got his traditional pre-performance cocktail sitting on his dressing table, and he pauses to take a long sip, “Luck is what got you through your own abysmal performance. I don’t need luck, since I have actual talent.”

Futakuchi is suddenly reminded why he’s never once in his life taken the high road.

“Fair enough,” he says, “Let me at least say happy belated birthday. You look great, not a day over thirty-eight.”

Oikawa, still a decade from thirty-eight, grips his drink with white knuckles, speaking through gritted teeth, “How very kind of you, Kenji-kun. And don’t worry, I’m sure one day you’ll be able to afford a suit that fits correctly.”

Futakuchi rolls his eyes, unbothered by the comment about his ill-fitting awards outfit, or the fact that he still looks somewhat out-of-place at this particular brand of event. Even after so long in the limelight, Futakuchi is still just a bit too loud, too blunt, too tired of the pretenses and the backstabbing.

“I was thinking about turning them down, you know, when they asked me to open the show,” he says, feigning casualness, “But my performance really set the stage for the whole evening. Or so they say.”

“Cute,” Oikawa’s smile is so acidic it could melt steel, “I’ll be closing the show, of course. Naturally, they want to save the best for last.”

“Sure, if anyone is even still tuned in,” Futakuchi tilts his head to the side, “I’ll probably miss it, since I’m leaving now for the Burberry after party.”

Oikawa cackles, “Couldn’t get an invite to the Vogue after party, could you? They practically begged me.”

“Maybe in your imagination!”

“No, I’ll save my imagination for thinking about you begging for my attention,” Oikawa says, “Oh! Or I could just flip through some old texts to see that!”

Futakuchi clenches his jaw, “Is your career so sad that you always have to bring up old shit?”

He’s exaggerating. Oikawa doesn’t always bring up anything. In fact, when Futakuchi and Oikawa had broken up, amidst speculation and drama and despondent wailing from fans, Oikawa had always politely declined to comment on the split. Futakuchi, far more bitter about the situation than he had any right to be, was the one who liked to get in jabs and passive aggressive digs.

That was, at least, until Oikawa’s album came out.

“I think the title track really speaks for itself,” Oikawa would say, smile creeping over his face, “Bad Liar -- I think we all know someone like that, who uses you and tries to hide it. I mean, I know someone like that, I’m sure you can guess who.”

The tabloids, still reeling from the break up of a pair that had been called the “power couple of the decade,” was salivating for details. Futakuchi was mostly peeved that Oikawa beat him to the punch on releasing a break-up track.

“Let’s see,” Oikawa scrolls through his phone, clearing his throat and breaking Futakuchi out of his reminiscing, “Ah-hem... Tooru, I’ve been thinking about you all day. It’s driving me crazy that I can’t get you out of my head.

Futakuchi chokes, “Oikawa, you’ve got to be fuckin’ kidding me--”

He scrambles for the phone, but Oikawa stands up and continues, “Fuck you for making me feel this way. All I want is your hands on m-- Kenji what the fuck!”

There’s a scramble as the two stars tussle over the phone. Oikawa’s security detail makes a move for Futakuchi, but he slinks away from them, never letting his grip off the phone. A few of the hair and makeup people are starting to gather to watch them. Futakuchi couldn’t care less, too focused on upsetting Oikawa in any way he can.

Finally, the phone slips out of their hands, palms sweaty with exertion. There’s a conspicuous shattering noise as it hits the floor, and one of Oikawa’s makeup artists gasps.

And, because he just can’t help himself, Futakuchi delivers the finishing blow by kicking the phone across the floor, out the door, and into the hallway. A rack of bedazzled dresses pushed by a group of harried wardrobe assistants runs over it.

The gratification is instant, and even Oikawa dousing Futakuchi with his drink can’t bring him down. If anything, it feels like a badge of honor.

Futakuchi braces for impact, but Oikawa just waves his security guard away, choosing instead to sneer down at Futakuchi, “You’re as childish as ever, I see.”

“That’s rich, coming from you,” Futakuchi says, wiping his wet hair out of his eyes. Some passersby have stopped in the hallway to watch them; he’s sure they both look ridiculous, and that there will be more gossip articles about this encounter than he can count.

Oikawa, jaw tense, nods toward the door, “Whenever you want, you’re welcome to get the fuck out of my sight.”

For some reason, Futakuchi hesitates. As ridiculous and infuriating and horrible as Oikawa can be… it’s nice seeing him again. Try as he might, Futakuchi can’t think of anyone else who’s as fun to be around as Oikawa, even when they’re fighting and bitching at each other.

But now just isn’t the time or the place for those kind of revelations.
“As you wish,” Futakuchi says, grabbing Oikawa’s hand in a quick motion and making a show of pressing a kiss to his palm, lips sticky with alcohol.

“Good luck with your performance.”

my first attempt writing aosuga!


***

The Blue Mountains divide the country in half, and Suga had never before crossed them to reach the other side. But now, he can see the fine, dark lines of every peak.

Until now, he hadn’t known just how wide the world really was, and all it had to offer. Here, away from his humdrum life and surrounded by precious little else but clouds and the stalk to which he clings, he is soaring.

He laughs. The noise is drowned out by the wind that whips his hair about his face, but still rings free and full in his mind.

“King of the world, Sugawara Koushi,” he says, still smiling, and climbs higher.





Suga is greeted on the seemingly endless cottage porch by a white-haired, hill-sized rabbit.

He yelps in surprise. The rabbit gives him a good sniff before scampering off— only to be replaced by a pair of mountain boots as large as literal mountains.

Suga stares at the mountain boots. He cranes his neck to see what’s above them. He leans back to look higher. He retreats a few steps to look even higher— and he’s locking eyes with a white-haired, frowning giant.

Suga gulps. For a moment, his whole life flashes before his eyes.

(Which, truth be told, doesn’t take much time; the most exciting event thus far has been Suga disregarding Daichi’s stern warning to “buy only what we need”, because the woman with the beans stand at the market whispered of adventure, of something more than tilling earth and planting crops all day and collapsing into bed and waking up early to do it all again.)

The giant’s frown deepens, and in one swift motion, leans down to pick Suga up in one hand.

“Let go!” Suga yells.

This was a mistake. Taking his first tentative step toward the beanstalk was a mistake. What he would give for problems like plucking his cat off his face in the mornings, or yanking his boot out of a cow patty for the billionth time—

But powerless and caught in the giant’s firm grip, he can only watch as he’s taken into a, airy, one-room cottage that appears to have the same dimensions as a king’s palace. The giant places him on a wooden table so large that he can’t see the ends of it.

Heart hammering, he watches the giant turn his back to pour hot water into a brown cup, and wonders how much it would hurt to be boiled alive.

But the giant pauses, then rummages through a cupboard to retrieve a small bottle and an eyedropper. He removes the bottle’s cap, and uses the eyedropper to transfer a few drops of tea from the cup to the cap.

“F-for me?” Suga asks when the cap is handed to him.

The giant nods.

“Thank you?”

They wait for Suga’s drink to cool without saying a word. But after the giant begins glancing expectantly at Suga, he has no choice but to sip.

The tea has a surprisingly strong kick to it. Ginger, Suga realizes. He takes a longer sip, enjoying the heat that warms his mouth and races down his throat, his lips curving upward. Shimizu wouldn’t mind a drink this spicy, but there’s no way Daichi and Asahi could handle it. For some reason, that thought helps his nerves settle.

The giant seats himself in the lone wooden chair at the table. His hands wrap around a dark green cup that has the circumference and depth of a small well, but not before Suga catches the white lettering on the ceramic surface.

He takes a deep breath for courage. “Your name’s Aone?”

The giant nods. He’s still frowning, though he doesn’t seem vexed by anything, and Suga begins to suspect this is his default expression. It seems almost certain that no one is getting boiled alive today. Further comforted, he ventures, “Well… I’m Suga.”

Again, Aone inclines his head. But he holds this nod, lowering his eyes, and Suga takes it as an introduction.

“So… Aone." What, Suga wonders, does one ask a giant in a cottage that’s suspended in mid-air with a beanstalk’s twine? “Have you always lived here?”

Aone gestures at the “Home Sweet Home” sign, embroidered with pink thread and flowers in a wooden frame next to the door.

“You made that yourself?” Even Suga knows a good cross-stitch when he sees one. He’s especially impressed, given he and the people he lives with have such poor sewing skills they’ve entrusted all needlework-related matters to their next door neighbor, Yachi.

Aone extends his arm to include the furniture, the paintings (most featuring a certain white rabbit) on the walls, the sheep’s wool rug, and the knitted, dark green comforter on the enormous bed.

“Oh, you made everything in here. That’s amazing,” Suga says, and means it.

Aone nods as thanks, then waits. It takes Suga a moment to understand.

“You want to know about me? Why I’m here?”

Nod.

“Well,” and Suga takes another sip of his tea. He can feel himself relaxing. “Wanted a change of pace, I guess.”

Aone tilts his head in confusion. The silence is filled by the rabbit outside, who is scratching at something on the porch.

“I got tired of doing the same things all day. It’s not a bad life down there, living with my best friends. I like herding the sheep with Daichi, chasing chickens with Asahi, riding places on horseback with Shimizu, and star gazing with them all. It’s quiet, just... boring sometimes.”

It’s odd how a nod can mean so many things, let alone how a nod can be sympathetic, but Aone seems to manage it just fine. Seeing how at home he’s made this cottage, he doesn’t mind the quiet life, but Suga appreciates him listening anyway.

“I want to see more of the world,” he says, spurred on by Aone’s encouragement. “I want to experience different things, feel different things, you know? I— whoa!”

Aone’s picked him up as gently as he did the first time. The chair is pushed back with a loud scrape, and they head for the front door.

“Where are you taking me?” Suga’s voice is high-pitched; for a wild moment, he thinks Aone will drop him off the porch. But Aone stops at its edge, leaning against a wooden beam, and places Suga on his left shoulder.

“Look,” Aone says. His voice is firm. Booming.

Endless expanses of cloud and blue sky, fields like patches of green felt, red-roofed cottages for ants, sprawling towns of lights and innovation— Suga takes it all in. The Blue Mountains are there, and he not only sees them now in their entirety, but beyond them as well. With some squinting and imagination, he can see his own cottage, with tiny Daichi, Asahi and Shimizu going about their work.

The world is wide here. And wider still, perched atop Aone’s shoulder.

A wind tips Suga off-balance; he attempts to seize Aone’s hair, but it’s too short and he hangs on to Aone’s left earlobe instead. He thinks again about more, but also about what it means to find a home in a place so vast he is easily forgotten.

They watch in silence until the sun sets.





“Will you come back?” Aone asks. His deep, considered voice seems to fill the air with a presence that’s near fit to burst.

Suga glances around. Inside the cottage, traces of steam are still wafting from the kettle on the stove. Despite the evening chill, the warmth of the ginger tea ensures he won’t freeze on his way down. And right next to the porch, the beanstalk grows, piercing the clouds, spiraling ever upward.

He’ll wake tomorrow to his cat on his face, and breakfast with Daichi, Asahi, and Shimizu. And now he has a safe pit stop, he can climb higher.

Suga grins. “You bet.”
