***

Taiga catches the tail end of Tatsuya’s laughter, blossoming warm across the room, through the swinging door to the kitchen as he comes in, turning his face with the smile still stuck to it. He looks like he’s about to feign surprise for a second, but he has to know Taiga’s been hiding out back here, shirking the activity. It’s a small wedding; they’ve closed off the restaurant and held parties for high-paying clients with twice as many people and fit them in comfortably, but the volume isn’t really the issue. It’s people in general, and it’s Tatsuya; it’s the thought that today he is going to be married to Tatsuya—something he’s known for a year, thought about for longer (since before their restaurant became a reality or more than a pipe dream, since before they’d started sharing a bank account), but now that it’s really happening it’s a lot to process, as if he’s a computer someone’s suddenly decided to overclock and all the warning in the world isn’t going to be enough.

“How are you doing?” Tatsuya says (he already knows the answer).

One hand slips over to brush imaginary dust off of Taiga’s jacket, and when was the last time they’d both worn suits? Taiga can’t remember, really; his mind is failing and coming up with images of Tatsuya in his high school uniform, in the khakis and button-down with sleeves rolled up he’d worn to Taiga’s college graduation, forearms already glowing with summer.

But right now he looks even more gorgeous, face relaxed into the real smile he’s worn exponentially more around Taiga in the few years since they’d opened the restaurant, tuxedo leaving very little to Taiga’s imagination or memory, the familiar outline of his body silhouetted in sharp creases of dark fabric. His hand comes to rest on Taiga’s shoulder, thumb brushing the edge of his jacket collar. Taiga leans down to kiss him, nuzzle against his nose; the smile still hasn’t left Tatsuya’s mouth when he pulls back slightly.

“There’s still time,” Tatsuya murmurs. “We can elope; it can just be the two of us and some random judge, hmm?”

He’s kidding, but still. There’s no other option on a venue than their restaurant, their baby (as it were—with the rate they work, even if Taiga manages to convince Tatsuya somewhere along the line that kids aren’t a bad idea, there won’t be any of the real kind anytime soon); of course their employees should be there; of course Alex should, too, and Taiga’s dad and Tatsuya’s parents. But. If it could just be the two of them, in the kitchen, dressed like this, enjoying each other, that would be the perfect day.

Tatsuya glances over Taiga’s shoulder, and Taiga follows his gaze to the gift bag on the counter.

“I got you something,” Taiga says. “Since, you know, technically speaking, this is anniversary zero.”

Tatsuya smiles wider, eye crinkling at the corner. “Can I open it now?”

“Please,” says Taiga, practically shoving the bag into Tatsuya’s hands.

Tatsuya pulls out the bottle of scotch, seventy-five-year vintage—it had cost a little more than he’d hoped, especially given how hard to find it had been, but it’s Tatsuya’s favorite brand, the one he uses in his best cocktail but prefers to sip straight (but always says they can’t really afford it), but price doesn’t really matter when it comes to Tatsuya (and, considering their profit margin—excellent even without considering that they run a restaurant—he can afford it).

“Taiga—this is.” Tatsuya clears his throat. “Thank you.”

“It’s good?”

“It’s wonderful,” says Tatsuya, admiring the label before looking back up at Taiga and leaning up for another quick kiss.

He sets the bottle back in the bag and places the bag back onto the counter, then digging his hands into his pockets. “I have something for you, too. I know we bought those gold rings, but.”

He pulls two very familiar chains, tangled up with each other, out from his right pocket, and Taiga’s throat constricts. He’d thought about asking, when they’d gone ring shopping and settled on bands that were plain and reasonably-priced and enough to satisfy anyone but Taiga had kept thinking back to those, the cool metal on his left middle finger way back when. They’ve long since become too small; he and Tatsuya have long since stopped wearing the rings, and Tatsuya had kept them both in his dresser for a while and then in the bank safe with their birth certificates.

“I wasn’t too excited about them, and I could tell you weren’t, either, so I went to the jewelry store,” he says, fingering the slightly-brighter links on the necklace that was his once, and he doesn’t have to say for Taiga to guess it’s the one he went to when he’d gotten that repaired, way back when—and he doesn’t want Tatsuya to think about that on their wedding day; he reaches out to cup Tatsuya’s cheek.

Tatsuya looks up. “They adjusted them for me, added a little bit. If you want to still use the others—”

“No way,” says Taiga. “Tatsuya, this is…perfect.”

(The word seems underwhelming, overused in situations it wasn’t made for, but if anything ever was it’s this, the rings, sealing their relationship all over again, so many years later.) Tatsuya’s face relaxes; he gets it. He slips the rings back into his pocket, and Taiga feels his own face fall.

“You’ll have plenty of time for those after we’re married,” Tatsuya says.

(After they’re married, the two of them being married; Taiga feels sparks down his spine.)

“I thought about getting you a basketball court, though,” Tatsuya says; he’s kidding again (he lets his smile give him away, as if he needs to) and Taiga leans in to give him another kiss, longer and deeper this time—they’ll have plenty of time for that after they’re married, too, but they’ve got plenty of time now and Taiga’s not going to waste it.

Tatsuya sees Rakuzan’s Mibuchi for the first time across the court. He’s not playing, but Mibuchi is, and maybe it’s for the better. Tatsuya appreciates beautiful basketball when he’s playing against it, but it’s always secondary to the need to destroy (and even now, seeing the ball drop through the hoop with such grace ignites a surge inside of him to get out there and compete, win, beat that with something of his own). But from this distance he can see each shot, the quiet it creates around him, the impossible cratering of the defense underneath his jump. Tatsuya can’t wait to face him.

It happens at a practice match, pre-season so-called friendly where Coach Araki glares at Rakuzan’s coach and his placed demeanor, and Tatsuya and Wei greet Rakuzan’s captain and vice-captain. Akashi quips that since Tatsuya’s American a handshake might be more appropriate, and while Tatsuya can’t remember much about Akashi’s hand Mibuchi’s is soft but firm, his hand roughly the size of Tatsuya’s. He’s not that much taller but he’s an imposing figure, the length of his neck and the smile on his face and, oh. Tatsuya doesn’t get crushes, only fleeting attractions—but, oh.

The first time Tatsuya hears Taiga talk about Mibuchi is before he even realizes they know each other. It makes sense, he supposes; Taiga knows Akashi and Mibuchi knows Akashi and (from what Tatsuya’s heard from Atsushi) Akashi’s circle of (friends? confidantes?) is quite interconnected. But after that startled realization comes another, the soft look on Taiga’s face, the way he’s fidgeting with the buttons on his phone.

“He said he wants me to show him some of my favorite shopping spots,” says Taiga. “Next time he’s here.”

He looks up at Tatsuya again, and, oh. Tatsuya’s stomach does a funny little awful thing; it wants to lash out and bruise him from the inside but it wants to see Taiga smile like that again, the excitement in his face preserved. Tatsuya has no claim on Mibuchi; he barely knows him. He wants, yes—those shots, three in succession, that range, those gorgeous eyes, long fingers—but he doesn’t know how they’d hold onto a conversation, what they’d talk about; the attachment runs shallow like a river pooling under a ridge, unable to pass over. Taiga’s is the way everything is with Taiga, strong and sure and confident. And because it’s Taiga, because this is yet another thing in which Taiga has the advantage, all over again, the sick feelings telling Tatsuya to go for it, that even if he doesn’t really want Mibuchi he doesn’t want Taiga to have him first.

“You should take him,” Tatsuya says, finally. “Show him that one you told me about downtown, by the crepe shop.”

“Oh!” Taiga says. “Yeah…he’d look good in—”

And then his voice breaks off; he looks away and almost drops his phone, and it’s cute.

“He’s very pretty,” says Tatsuya, keeping the edge out of his voice. “There’s a lot he looks good in.”

“I know,” says Taiga, and it’s the closest they get to really talking about it until Mibuchi gets there, coincidentally overlapping with Tatsuya’s next visit.

Taiga apologizes, but it’s something he could have planned better—would have, if he hadn’t meant it like this. And there’s no way he knows about Tatsuya’s feelings (if there’s enough there to call them that), and he knows Taiga well enough that he knows for some reason, an ironic twist of fate in his guts, that Taiga still wants his approval. He can’t say no, even though it’s on the tip of his tongue, the I-thought-he-was-pretty-before-you-even-met-him because that doesn’t mean shit.

“Himuro-san, this is nice,” says Mibuchi.

“Likewise,” says Tatsuya, pretending they mean it in the same way.

They all go shopping together; it’s not really Tatsuya’s thing but it’s enjoyable to see Mibuchi rifle decisively through the racks of clothes, choosing something that fits Taiga perfectly, until Tatsuya realizes he wouldn’t have thought of it himself, and he’s feeling every sort of jealousy he can (childish, stupid). Then Mibuchi finds something for him, holding it against him, hands warm though thin fabric of a decorative scarf, and, oh. And then his eyes slide over to Taiga, watching Mibuchi, and then Mibuchi’s eyes slide over to Taiga, and it’s almost as if Tatsuya doesn’t exist. He hates the burning feeling that makes him want to scream (but manages to keep quiet).

“What did you think?” Taiga says, after, hesitant.

Tatsuya could say a lot of things.

“I think he likes you a lot, Taiga. Go get him.”

The smile on Taiga’s face is worth it, Tatsuya reminds himself. He’s just got to look a little bit harder.

Prompt: The AU where Yuri is the leader of a rebel faction determined to topple the current regime (maybe in Russia, probably the head of the current regime is Victor, do with this what you will) using a mystical power that allows him to give each person one inviolable command so long as he makes direct eye contact. Otabek is his classmate turned second in command, one of the few who know Yuri’s identity beneath the mask he wears to lead.

Bonus points for Yuri giving Otabek the command to “live!” and for this to screw up all of Otabek’s noble plans to die for Yuri if he has to.

I’m so sorry for the hot mess that any Code Geass AU is just by definition, I’m so sorry I made a Code Geass AU, I’m playing very fast and loose with the premise; Otabek is like a cross between Kallen and Suzaku and I have no regrets just roll with it. Knowledge of Code Geass not required to make me happy, it’d be delightful to see what someone who doesn’t know the series does with this.

It starts so innocuously that, in hindsight, Celestino finds he can't really identify when the Prince's behavior changed. The truth is that Phichit has probably always been like this; for as long as Celestino has known him, which is the young Prince's entire life, Phichit has always been a charmer. As a child he won over many of the ladies of the court and even some of the noblemen with his sweet smile and innocent wisdoms, and as he got older, his magnetic personality attracted him many friends from within Thailand and the ruling families of their allies.

Phichit has been on the periphery of Celestino's life since he was born, when Celestino was the tender young age of 25 and newly promoted to the role of Privy Counselor. Back then, he was the treasured first born son of the Crown Prince, second in the line of succession should his grandfather the King pass away. At the time Celestino went and paid his respects to the heir apparent and his wife on the birth of their beautiful child, and had Phichit pressed into his nervous arms to hold for a moment; that was the closest Celestino has been to him in sixteen years.

And in those sixteen years, the world has changed; the ruling monarch passed away, and his son was coronated, promoting Phichit to Crown Prince. Celestino has grown in his position, from a junior counselor who was there merely to observe and occassionally opine, to a senior counselor who is invited to lead council meetings and brief the King himself. Apparently he makes a good impression, enough to be selected to tutor the aforementioned Crown Prince in his future duties, and the state of the world as it was, is, and is expected to be.

Which is how Celestino finds himself in his present situation. Phichit is highly opinionated, and among his chief opinions are that lessons should be held in his room, and that as long as he's in his room, he's allowed to be as under-dressed as he'd like. Fortunately for Celestino's sanity, that usually means pajamas, even a dressing gown on the days when he wants to be extra considerate. Still...

“I really don't believe this is appropriate, your Highness,” he says stiffly, not for the first time that day. “You will learn just as well sitting on the other side of the table as you will beside me.”

“But you're warm, and your voice is soft, and you smell nice, Ciao Ciao,” Phichit replies matter-of-factly, as he moves even closer to Celestino.

“Is there anything I can do to convince you not to use that nickname any longer?” Celestino sighs.

“You said it was cute!”

“I said it was cute when you were five years old,” he counters, chagrined. “You're nearly an adult now, and it's unseemly.”

“I like thinking of you as my Ciao Ciao, though.”

“Please don't think of me as anything but your tutor, your Highness.”

Phichit hums; Celestino knows better than to think this is a good thing.

“You're my tutor.”

“Y...es...?”

“That means you're obligated to teach me everything I'll need to know when I ascend to the throne.”

“Right. Yes.”

“So then teach me about taking concubines!”

“Phichit!” Celestino scolds before he can catch himself. He claps his hand over his mouth and swallows the expletive on his tongue.

“HA!” Phichit cries victoriously. “I knew I could get you to drop the formalities eventually, Ciao Ciao.”

“I apologize for my insolence,” Celestino says forcefully. “I can assure you, Prince Phichit, it won't be happening again.”

Phichit petulantly struck the table with his fist. “I'm not a kid anymore, Ciao Ciao. I'm old enough to know what I want. I'm old enough that you should respect my wishes when I say I want you to call me by my name.”

“You're seventeen,” Celestino reminds him. “You're a child, Prince Phichit.”

Shuffling impossibly closer, Phichit looks up at Celestino with a well-executed pout. Celestino notes that even though he's still in pajamas, he's somehow found the time to apply his winged eyeliner and mascara.

“I'm old enough to know what I want,” he repeats. “Don't you like me, Celestino?”

The use of his real name makes him swallow, hard. He keeps his composure as best as he can.

“Of course I like you, your Highness. You are very beloved by nearly everyone in the Kingdom.”

“I don't mean like that, and you know it.”

“Your Highness, please. I'm 42 years old. I understand you're at an age where you want to... explore your options, but there is no dearth of young nobles in your own age group.”

“But I'm not interested in any of them. I'm interested in you.”

Celestino laments, “You're going to be the death of me,” and Phichit flashes him a bright smile.
