Bonus Round 5: Myth & Lore

Bonus Round 5: Myth & Lore


Summer's a time for swapping stories around the campfire. With that in mind, this round draws inspiration from the stories humanity have told each other over the centuries.

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on August 4 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.


RULES
  • This round does not have prompts. Instead, we ask you to draw inspiration from the wide pool of mythology, fantasy, folklore, and fable. An urban fantasy or supernatural AU? A re-imagining of your favorite folk tale? Characters swapping ghost stories or playing D&D? As long as your fill in some way incorporates the fantastical and/or supernatural, it's welcome here.
  • Your fill still has to be about a ship from one of our nominated fandoms. What ships you create work for is up to you, though.
  • To submit your fill, simply leave it as a comment as a reply to this post.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.

Hinata Shouyou & Nishinoya Yuu & Sugawara Koushi, Haikyuu!!
Tags: no tags, Healer Suga, Tengu Hinata, Tengu Nishinoya
Wordcount: 463 words

Suga was woken rather abruptly by repeated shouts of "Sugawara-san! Sugawara-san!" and something, or rather several somethings jumping on his bed. He opened his eyes just in time to be clipped in the face by a stray wing. He groaned as he sat up.

"Hinata-kun, Nishinoya-kun, do you have any idea what time it is?" he asked, rubbing his eyes.

"We waited and everything!" Hinata said excitedly. "We've been here for hours."

"But we were good and waited until the sun was all the way over the horizon before we woke you up!" Nishinoya added.

"For which I thank you," Suga said, shooing the two tengu off of the bed so that he could rise.

Across the room, Nitori stirred. "Is something wrong, Papa?" he asked sleepily. "I thought I heard yelling."

"Uwaah! You have a nestling too!" Hinata yelled. "How long have you had him? Where'd he come from? What's his name?"

Suga laughed and ruffled the feathers on Hinata's head. "Everything's fine, Ai-kun," he said. "These are a couple of old friends who've come back to visit. I've known them since they were just nestlings themselves."

"They still sound like nestlings, Papa," Nitori said, and Suga chided him gently, but silently, he agreed with the sentiment. He couldn't believe it had been five years already since he had found the two young tengu in the forest, one with a broken wing from when he had tried to jump farther than his young wings would carry him, and the other bruised and dirty from where he had jumped right out of the tree after his friend. Suga had taken them both home with him and nursed them back to health, and they had come back to visit regularly since. They had grown a lot since then, but they still reminded Suga very much of children.

"So what brings you out here today?" Suga asked.

"There was something we wanted to tell you," Nishinoya said, preening his wings in an uncharacteristic show of nervousness. "It's, umm, well..."

"Noya's going to have nestlings of his own!" Hinata exclaimed.

"Really!?" Suga asked, unable to keep the surprise from his voice.

Nishinoya nodded and hopped nervously from side to side. "Asahi's looking after the eggs now," he said. "I should go back soon, he's probably worrying himself sick already, but I wanted you to know."

"That's wonderful news," Suga said happily. "Tell Asahi I say congratulations too. If you wait a minute, I'll pack you something for the way back."

"You're the best, Sugawara-san!" Hinata said happily as he and Nishinoya left with their hands full of steamed buns. "We'll be back again soon!"

"You should bring the little ones over at some point, Nishinoya," Suga said.

"I will, and Asahi too!"
