An oldie but a goodie—in this round, we draw inspiration from famous words said by other people.

    • Example: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." -Friedrich Nietzsche
    • The quote can come from almost anything—famous people, poetry, songs, books, movies, etc.— but please don't quote personal conversations you've had or overheard.
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Natsuo & Yuzuko). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Natsuo/Yuzuko). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!

***

It's the nineteenth summer of Taichi's life, and he's only just learning things that he thought he'd figured out a long time ago.

Things he'd never thought he'd have to rethink at all, like what it means to feel love for someone. He would have thought, after so many years of listening to poetry about it, that he would have a firm enough grasp on the concept by now, but he's not sure any more. Not when he's watching Arata play karuta, his heart caught in his throat, and he isn't entirely sure that the admiration he feels is just because of the way Arata is playing.

This is the problem with seeing someone as your life-long rival: at some point, Taichi has stopped caring as much about the rival part and caring more about the fact that no matter where he's gone or what he's achieved, the very thought of Arata is hanging over his head, his name filling him with the same kind of tension as an unread verse towards the end of a karuta match.

"Taichi." Arata's voice cuts through the crowd after the match is over. He's made it as the Western Representative, and he wasn't meant to know that Taichi came all the way here to watch him. He walks through the crowd, stopping just an arm's reach of Taichi. He's radiant in his pride, and to Taichi, his smile feels like the winter sun; the first touch of warmth when he's spent so long in the cold.

"Taichi," he says again, and Taichi thinks that he could spend forever listening to his name in that voice. He entertains the thought, just briefly, of the syllables of his name meaning to Arata what Arata's name means to him, filling him with the same feeling.

He knows that it isn't realistic; their styles of karuta are fundamentally different. The way Arata approaches unread verses is different to Taichi's own memorisation. There's probably a fundamental difference in their feelings to each other, too. Besides, Arata says Taichi's name, while Taichi tries to avoid saying his.

"You came to watch," Arata murmurs, soft and pleased, and he's still smiling. Taichi can't look away.

"I," Taichi begins, and his mouth feels dry. He swallows hard, and surprises himself when he doesn't even have to force a smile onto his own face. "I wanted to see my competition."

Arata's smile changes then, becomes more dangerous, and Taichi is breathless in the best possible way.

"I've wanted this for years," Arata tells him, blushing like it's some sort of confession. "I'm looking forward to it, Taichi."

oh, gosh, i wasn't really expecting a fill for this one, what a nice surprise! i always think about the first time arata plays in a tournament again near the beginning of the manga and how taichi cries and admits to himself that he doesn't want to be happy but he is. the relationship between these two is so complex and i wish it didn't get watered down to "romantic rivals" so often. i especially love the comparison of arata to an unread karuta verse... thanks!
