questionable drinks, mentions of poisoning/sickness, one mention of cursing
883 words

The drink first appeared in the break room one morning, seemingly innocent and tagged with a printed out note saying “Drink me!”

“When did the break room become ‘Alice in Wonderland’?” Momo asked, pouring all the coffee into his industrial sized pink tumbler.

Kikumaru shrugged, staring at the note for a half second before kicking out Momo’s knee for stealing all the coffee. There were more important things to worry about.

-

A groan echoed through the office later and Arai sprinted past Kikumaru’s desk looking sick.

“What’s with him?” Momo asked, leaning against Kikumaru’s cubicle and stealing a piece of candy from his candy jar.

“Beats me.” He swatted Momo away “Also, ask first, geeze.”

-

The next day, another drink appeared in a very pretty pink tumbler. It sat next to the coffee maker and Kikumaru raised an eyebrow at the note.

“For Momoshiro <3!”

Momo wasn’t even working that day, out on a business trip with Echizen, but the thought of an awkward office romance made Kikumaru cringe. It had happened once when Fuji tried to seduce their usual delivery man and it really wasn’t an experience he was ready to live through again. Or ever again.

So he did what he thought was best. He threw away the note and placed the drink in the fridge, hoping the secret admirer took the hint.

-

Later that day, a scream broke Kikumaru out of his daily mid-day desk nap.

The break room door slammed open, drawing the office’s full attention. Kaidoh stumbled out, looking highly traumatized.

“Don’t...drink...from the pink tumbler.” He dragged himself to his own desk and collapsed.

Pulling out his phone out, Kikumaru quickly texted Momo.

Kaidoh just took a hit for u

What?

Someone’s trying to poison u… Kikumaru paused. Or the whole office. Regardless Kaidoh hasn’t moved from his desk for a full 5 mins. Serious shit.

Why does all the fun stuff happen when I’m gone???

Karma for stealing my candy, Momo-chan. Karma.

-

Over the next month, every member of the office besides Kikumaru subjected themselves to the torture of mysterious gross drink. Mass emails were sent, new break room food rules set, but somehow the drink still appeared and people, for whatever reason, drank it.

Kikumaru honestly was starting to wonder about the survival instincts of the his coworkers. And with productivity being at an all-time high according to Tezuka, he wasn’t too sure.

But things all came to a head when Kikumaru worked another overnight.

-

He finished the last report for a client of his and celebrated by passing out on his desk, face first. It certainly wasn’t the first time he’d done it and it wouldn’t be the last. Normally, Kikumaru was able to sleep until Tezuka came in at 8am sharp, but that particular morning, someone came in even earlier.

At the multitude of shuffling noises, Kikumaru slowly woke up and whined at the 7am showing on his cat clock.

“Teeeezuka, you’re too early…” he groaned, stretching his arms out over his head.

“...I’m not Tezuka, Kikumaru.”

Pausing mid-stretch, he opened his eyes to find Inui from the department next door, holding a cat-covered tumbler.

Seconds, minutes ticked by. The buffering in his mind finally stopped and suddenly Kikumaru was wide awake.

“YOU.” Pushing back from his desk, he pointed his finger at Inui and the drink. “YOU’RE THE ONE POISONING THE OFFICE!!”

“Well,” Inui adjusted his glasses, “there is no poisonous substance in this mixture, just some caffeine and electrolytes, among other things, to give everyone the extra boost of energy to work better. Tezuka asked me to do it, but you all turned me down when I asked you willingly.”

It was then that Kikumaru vaguely remembered a short company meeting about nutrition, run by Inui, that he’d spent playing Love Live on his phone. Whoops.

“And, if I recall, you’re the only one that hasn’t tried the drink, Kikumaru…”

“I don’t have a death wish.”

Inui gave him a placating smile and held out his hand.

“Well, I suppose we could make a deal? Tezuka doesn’t want anyone knowing about this but he does want productivity to stay up so…”

“Do I have to drink it?”

“Not if you don’t tell.”

Kikumaru grasped Inui’s hand with both of his. “DEAL. Deal. Poison them all you want, so long as it isn’t me.”

Inui’s grip was firm, and his smile only worried Kikumaru a little bit.

“I’m glad we could come to an agreement.”

-

When Momo fell prey to the drink for the second time that week, Kikumaru pulled out his phone to text the newest number in his list.

Momo-chan drank it again. He’s already finished his work for the week and has picked up the slack on Horio’s. I think Tezuka’s almost about to cry in joy…or he’s constipated. You never know with him.

After a minute, his phone buzzed.

Thanks for your update, though this data about Tezuka is new. Maybe he should join the experiment as well?

Kikumaru couldn’t stop the smirk on his face as Tezuka shifted at his desk again.

What can I do to help?

Read here on AO3 or keep reading below! :) I hope you enjoy it!

Tanaka knew that he had been interested in girls from a very young age - that much was obvious. In spite of his interest and various pursuits, he had only gone on one date, which was more like a blind group date, rather than an actual date. So when the gorgeous Nakagawa Hayami asks him out one day after class, Tanaka doesn’t hesitate to say yes. He also doesn’t hesitate to boast about his latest victory to Noya as soon as he runs into him in the corridor that very afternoon.



“Hayami, hey? The small, cute one?” Noya muses as they walk out of the school together. Tanaka deflates a little when he notices the lack of excitement in Noya’s voice. Shouldn’t his best friend be happy for him now that he had finally managed to score a date with one of the most beautiful girls in the school?



“Yeah!” Tanaka practically shouts, gesticulating wildly as though that would somehow pump Noya up a little more. “She’s super cute, Noya-san!”



With what seems like a fair bit of effort, Noya lifts up his head and smiles his usual, blinding grin up at Tanaka and he is back to his usual bubbly self - for a moment.



“That’s awesome, dude!” Noya slaps him on the back - perhaps a little more forcefully than necessary - and lets his hand fall quickly down again as they continue walking towards the corner store.



A sudden thought occurs to Tanaka when Noya stares hard at the ground instead of back up at him. Of course; how could he have been so blind to it?! Noya was jealous - jealous that he, Tanaka Ryuunosuke, managed to get a date with a super-cute girl before Noya did! That made sense, but it still didn’t justify Noya’s cold attitude towards him.



To Tanaka, Noya had it all - he was cute, charming, a kick-ass volleyball player, and had an incredible personality. He had the ability to draw out the best in absolutely everybody around him and made them feel so good about themselves, and Tanaka always wondered why Noya wasn’t asked out more often. So when Noya fails to react to Tanaka’s latest feat, he can't hide his annoyance at this less-than-enthusiastic response. He grabs Noya’s arm and forces him to look at him. The two stand, staring at each other; Tanaka notices Noya’s eyes darken with something he had not seen before in his best friend.



“Dude, what’s wrong? Listen,” Tanaka emphasises, not giving Noya a chance to actually tell him what’s bothering him. “A girl’s interested in me, for the first time ever, Noya-san! I’m not gonna just ignore that, ya know?” Tanaka laughs heartily, trying to diffuse the tension between the two of them.



“I-I know that, mate!” Noya also chuckles in response, but even he knows that it sounds way too forced. “I … I want you …” Noya starts hesitantly, trailing off as Tanaka’s eyes widen and and focus on something just above Noya’s shoulder.



“You want me to what? Hayami-chan! I’ll see you tonight!” Tanaka waves to the girl standing behind Noya.



“Bye!” Hayami calls out, blushing amongst her friends. The group of girls giggle as they walk past them and Tanaka looks as though he’s just been hit over the head with a frying pan; a dazed expression crosses his face and he scratches the back of his head, a small habit that he does only when he’s nervous. Noya picked up on it a while ago, but chose not to say anything because he thought it was so damn cute.



“Uh …” Noya stammers, unsure of how to respond.



“Forgot what you were gonna say, huh? Happens to me all the time, you know!” Tanaka laughs again as they resume walking, although Noya notices that there is a new spring in his step after seeing Hayami. “Anyway, I hope we’re cool, dude. You know I love you,” Tanaka says suddenly.



Noya freezes in his tracks, causing Tanaka to stop and turn to face him. It’s too much for Noya - he can’t take it anymore. He can’t keep faking his enthusiasm and he can’t stand seeing Tanaka looking so darn giddy over a person that isn’t him, which Noya knows is petty and immature as hell. Fuck it, Noya thinks before going in for the kill.



“I love you too,” Noya gushes, unable to help himself. He steps forward, his face mere inches away from Tanaka. It was now or never. “I want you, Ryuu,” Noya repeats himself, this time making sure that his message is clear. Before Tanaka can say or do anything (and ensuring that Hayami is well out of sight), Noya stands on his toes and kisses him. He pulls back almost as soon as their lips touch, regretting it instantly. Hadn’t Tanaka just flipped out about how excited he was about Hayami?! Wasn’t it obvious that he was straight? How tactless can I be? Noya wonders despairingly, so caught up in his own thoughts that he doesn’t even notice Tanaka reach out to him.



“R-Ryuu …” murmurs Noya, aware that their faces are now mere inches apart.



“Shh,” Tanaka seals Noya’s lips with another kiss - another kiss, Noya almost yells in delight, thrusting his fist in the air, not caring how lame he must have looked.



When they pull apart this time, Tanaka is the one to step back. He stares at Noya as though he is looking - truly looking - at him for the first time. Suddenly, as soon as the moment comes, the moment is over and Tanaka whips out his phone. Heart sinking, Noya bites his lip as he watches Tanaka make a call. Is that how little their moment meant to him?



Noya’s mood is not improved when he figures out who Tanaka is calling. “Hey, Hayami-chan!”



Well, it was fun while it lasted, Noya thinks darkly.



“Yeah, I’m sorry but I have to cancel tonight! I’m really sorry, but I’ll explain it to you tomorrow if that’s okay?” Silence. Noya dares to get his hopes up as Tanaka continues talking, never once taking his eyes off him. “Great! Cool, thanks for being so understanding!” As simple as that, Tanaka hangs up the phone and wraps his arms around Noya.



“Well, that’s a win-win,” Noya grins, kissing his best friend for the third time that evening. He doesn’t think he’ll ever tire of doing that.

poetry fill, G, unrequited feelings, pining

every single spacing
(30 lines)


Story has it that
a boy once tried to cry
for
all the things he thought he
missed
the thing is: he didn’t know what
he missed, because
nice things don’t beg to be kept,
they don’t stay no matter how you wish
instead, they leave you breathing in
the ashes
of a long
burnt-out bridge.


Here’s the other thing:
I am that boy
I know what I’ve tried to grip
and he’s slipped through my fingers
like it’s natural to want
nothing
to do with
me.


And I can pretend all I want that
whatever’s between the first and second,
they can very well be just the
same
but he’s my first, he’s my second
he’s every
single spacing
my heart cries for to be
complete.

The smallest muscle in the human body is in the ear.
It is also the only muscle that does not have blood vessels;

It has fluid instead. The reason for this is clear:
The ear is so sensitive that the body, if it heard its own pulse,

Would be devastated by the amplification of its own sound.

(I'm sorry for this poorly written mess)

I’m so angry I could kiss you.” Bokuto’s face is bright red as he rehearses in front of the mirror for the upteenth time when he finally confesses to Kuroo.
“You’re so hot you make me mad.” Akaashi stands there shaking his head at this pathetic display. He comes closer and pats Bokuto’s shoulder.
“Bokuto-san, may I suggest you just be yourself?” A timid smile emerges on his face.
“But, but I have to say something that’ll knock him off his feet and make him remember this moment for the rest of his life.” His chest puffs up at the thought of kuroo kissing him so quickly in the heat of the moment, because of something sexy he said.
“You’re getting fantasies aren’t you?” Akaashi sighed and dropped his arm to his side.
“Bokuto-san, I don’t think this is the way to do it. I mean you should just be yourself and tell him how you feel in a Bokuto like way?” Akaashi struggles to find the words, but nothing he’s said for the past hour has stuck. And he smiles wryly, covering up any pain he might be feeling, before flopping on Bokuto’s bed, finally conceding to his dorky best friend.
“The practise match is tomorrow, just don’t stay up too late Bokuto-san.” Akaashi warns as he leave his house.
“Yes, sir.” Bokuto gives him a slight salute winking before bounding back into the house.
Akaashi’s steps are slightly heavy as he walks down the lane towards where his house is, 5 minutes away. He breathes in and out trying to dispel his feelings for Bokuto, his hopes that he would one day come to like him too.
“It’s all pointless isn’t it? I’m just another pretty face in the crowd, while Kuroo has the personality to keep up with Bokuto and more.” He slumps, but shakes his head. “Why am I moping about this, at least he’s happy.” He smiles at his pathetic self, but feels hopeful that Bokuto will be happy.
The next day felt like a blur to Akaashi, well the morning that is, he woke up, packed his athletic bag, ate, and left for school where the bus was waiting for him in the front parking lot.
Bokuto excitedly waved to Akaashi and he ran to meet him at the front gate. His mismatched hair matched his lopsided grin that matched his lopsided outlook on life. He was like the morning sun but brighter.
“Hey, hey, hey, Akaashi! Let’s go, let’s go!” Akaashi’s arm is taken by Bokuto and he’s about dragged to the bus where a small group of people were waiting.
Akaashi packs his bag under the bus before being dragged even further by his rambunctious partner, onto the bus where they take their seats in the front of the bus.
Everyone else files on slowly with less enthusiasm.
Akaashi smiles as usual when he sees Bokuto screech during the bus ride, and tries to drum up hype for the practise game against Nekoma.
Akaashi sighs when they finally reach Nekoma, and Bokuto hops out like a kid again.
Kuroo is there waiting for them as he always does with his team, Kenma is at his side.
“Brokuto! How you been?”
“I’ve been fine. And you? You seem to have gotten hotter since I last saw you.” Bokuto’s strange eyebrows wiggle like worms, waiting for Kuroo to react to his statement.
The team still wading out of the bus stops to form a semicircle around their captain with the other team.
“Ah shit, I’m so angry I could kiss you.”
“What was that?” Kuroo smiles smugly, like he knows everything, but wants a repeat.
“I said I’m so angry I could… piss… glue.” Bokuto’s brain seems to short circuit and Akaashi face palms at this even more pathetic spectacle than usual.
“Whatever you say man.” Kuroo rolls his eyes, and leans in quickly to peck Bokuto on the lips, while Bokuto is scrambling to pick up his fried brain of a head. It takes him a bit but he realises what just happened. His jaw drops and his eyes bulge while the teammates stare, with smug looks on their faces.
Kuroo’s shit eating grin comes back, “I’ve been waiting to do that.”

implied drowning, implied death

poem, 23 lines

When they find us, at first
they wonder which parts are
yours,
mine.
Like a tangled chain we were locked
together, rusting in the stormy
sea, two parts of a machine,
now broken.

But the grey-blue waves
that rolled unseeing above us
look something like
your eyes, crinkling in an unflattering smile.
My heart yelled-- mine!
yours,
two parts of one machine.

Our fingers twined,
shaky and nervous and perfect
like the shining stars.

In a rare romantic moment
you once said my hair was like moonlight.


It was night when we sank,
the storm in your eyes,
moon in my hair--

mihashi ren &/ haruna motoki or mihashi ren/abe takaya; oofuri

In Mandarin the word ren,
meaning endure, is written
knife over heart.
Here they say:
Why are you so quiet?
Why are you so soft?
Why are you so calm?
Do not mistake my silence
for subservience.
The knife of the heart
is held between my teeth.

Mihashi comes to them with cracks in his armour. There are chips and dents, left by rough hands and harsh words. He's left shaken, but this is what armour is for, in the end. Regardless of whatever might have happened at Mihoshi, he was still the one standing there on the pitcher's mound.

It doesn't matter that he's quiet, it doesn't matter that his hands and voice tremble like leaves in a particularly strong breeze. None of it matters when he's standing on the pitcher's mound at all, because this is where he belongs and he'll fight for it. He'll persevere as much as he needs to, if it means that he can have this. He won't bow his head, he won't leave the mound even if he is asked to. He didn't before, and he doesn't plan to do it here, either.

But Nishiura is nothing like Mihoshi; they don't ask him to stop pitching. They don't poke at the cracks in his armour, but find ways to mend it. They find ways to make him stronger.

Then, there's Abe.

Abe, who sends him signs. Whose strength as a catcher builds Mihashi's strength as a pitcher.

Abe, who wants him to stand there on the mound. Who sometimes comes across just as awkward as Mihashi does when they're off the field, who speaks half his sentences in averted glances, with red cheeks.

He makes Mihashi feel like he doesn't need to fight at all; the entire team does, but there's something about Abe's soft eyes and his gentle hands that makes Mihashi feel less and less like a cornered animal.

He still demands things of Mihashi; still expects certain things of him, but that's just to be expected in a team anyway. Mihashi can do it. He's outlasted much more than a demanding catcher who doesn't want his signs shaken off. If it means that Mihashi isn't alone, that he receives signs at all, then he knows it's worth it in the end anyway.

"There's something about you," Abe tells him one afternoon as they practice together. "Like you're…"

Mihashi waits, his shoulders a little tense in a way he's still unlearning. Abe gestures with his hand, fingers flexing like they're trying to grasp at words that are just out of his reach.

"You're more than this," Abe settles for, even though his expression shows that it's not what he was originally going for. "I know there's more to you under the surface. I want to see that part of you. I'm not saying it has to be right now, but one day, I'm going to get there."

Mihashi can only nod mutely.

If anyone can see into the very heart of him, he thinks, it's probably going to be Abe.

He isn't afraid.

implied angst, minor spoilers for anime and manga(?), but it's very general so it might be fine.

Poetry, 15 lines.

Missing you so long
Never here, never hearing
Your voices grow old

Still I could keep you both close
With nothing but memory

Tell me you'll return
That I'll cross your paths again
And I'll believe you

The only pain I can't bear
Is the promise of nothing

When our hands next meet
Don't treat me like a stranger
Let me hold you near

Let me make a memory
Of your arms, to keep me warm
