This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on July 21 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.

  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with a quote attributed to a specific person or character, along with any ship/ot3/etc. from one of our nominated fandoms.
    • Example: "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." - M. Gandhi
    • The quote can come from anywhere. Famous people, poetry, songs, books, movies, your neighbor, etc.
    • 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., Makoto & Rin). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Makoto/Rin). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!

tags: Low-key sexism and baseball chaunvinism, because Miyuki
words: 746

"Oh and this," Kanzaki continues, with obvious relish, swiping to another image in her phone's photo gallery, "is when Kinjou-senpai and Arakita-san finished first in the Chiba Under-20 Invitational."

Miyuki suppresses a yawn.

"...You sure go to a lot of races," he manages, for lack of anything more interesting to say. Which he hates, he has no patience for mindless small talk, would certainly resent a person for filing back the same noncommital replies he's presently giving this woman -- but Kanzaki doesn't seem fussed in the slightest, flipping through her photos as though she has the most captive audience in the world.

"I've had to cut back, what with my exams," she says. "It will be great next year when I'm managing for a university team."

She passes through another few photos of this 'Kinjou-senpai' of hers, and as Miyuki's gaze drifts disinterestedly from the line of racers he snags on the snarling brunet leaning over a seafoam green bike. A tiny ember of recognition starts to glow in the back of Miyuki's mind.

"Say... that guy..."

"Oh yes! That's Arakita-san," Kanzaki says, lighting up. "He's an all-rounder like Kinjou-senpai. In high school he was his captain's domestique -- that sounds inappropriate, but really it just means he was his assist and supported him through the final sprints. He--"

"--Didn't he used to play baseball?"

"Oh... I think?" Kanzaki shrugs. "He doesn't talk about himself a lot. We didn't go to school together; I only know him because he's senpai's classmate. He looks rough, but actually he has a couple of sisters at home, so he can be really sweet. He never gives me any problems when I visit Yonan."

"Problems?" Miyuki's having a hard time wrapping his head around that one.

"Oh, just the usual. You know, my family runs a bike shop too, and sometimes people come in and they won't talk business until my brother comes over, even if he tells them I work there. People are funny like that..."

She falls silent, and that in turn makes Miyuki feel even more out of place. He's not sure why he's even here, why he took a break from his own coffee-and-cram session to slide over and strike up a conversation, he didn't even know this girl -- she just had an aura about her like Rei-chan, and he thought, maybe...

Anyway, Miyuki is mean but he's not about to tell some high school kid that cycling isn't a real sport.

"You gotta have a thick skin in a boys' world, I guess?" he hazards, instead.

"Who said it's a boys' world?" she counters, eyes darting over to him. And there it is again, that velvet-gloved knife's edge cleverness that drew him over here in the first place. She's nothing like him, she isn't a hard person, probably doesn't possess a mean bone in her body, but there's a confidence to her he recognizes. Maybe less like Rei-chan and more like himself. "I think girls can be just as good at racing as boys can. Same with any sport."

That, howver, he can't resist challenging. "Do you see many girl pitchers?"

"Do you go watch any girl pitchers?"

And then it's Miyuki's turn to fall silent. After a few moments, he realizes his mouth's still hanging open, and shuts it. And then he grins.

He remembers the kids on his junior team telling him catcher wasn't a 'real' position. He remembers the words they spat and their knuckles wearing open the skin of his cheek. They didn't know because they hadn't studied up, and even as they laid him out in the dirt he'd thought to himself, their ignorance is gonna cost them someday. Not him. He knew more about baseball than any of them.

Back in the present, Miyuki smirks down at his coffee and thinks, yeah, he can ease up on the asshole schtick a little.

"...So what universities are you looking at?" he asks Kanzaki. "You mentioned Yonan, right?"

"That's where you go, isn't it? I saw your bag."

Miyuki smirks to himself again. His uni crest isn't even on his bag, she must mean she noticed the baseball gear sticking out of it, ran it against some internal database of local sports magnets schools, and calculated the averages. The little detective. It's probably a good thing she isn't into baseball, or she might've ended up his opponent somewhere along the way. Although that might've been nice too.
