  • 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: "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!

they steal a car just because they can.

it’s old, old enough that ryousuke can pry open the lock with practiced ease. youichi ducks under the steering wheel and carefully dislodges plastic plates, shoving both hands into the guts of the car. the wires are grease-covered and gritty from dust, but the engine still roars to life, mechanism surefire as a human heartbeat. youichi hops in the driver’s seat and revs the engine, ryousuke sidling up to the passenger side with a coy smile on his face.

“need a ride?” youichi laughs, the sound a bright knife in the night air. ryousuke sits down happily next to him, and doesn’t buckle up.

the highway is deserted at this time of night, so youichi opens up the taps. it’s only a matter of time before someone realizes that the car is gone, or a cop notices them speeding, but for the moment, a brief, shining gift of clarity to youichi’s lungs, it’s great. ryousuke rolls down the window on his side and takes it all in, the blurring street lights and the way it all blends together, trees and buildings and sky.

youichi switches lanes, takes the car careening left and watches steel girders and construction signs whiz by. ryousuke is the only bit of color in the place, and youichi savors it all: how it’s always better, somehow, the danger and the thrill and the fun, when ryousuke is there.

“where do you wanna go?” he asks, with a very specific answer buried in his hopeful voice.

ryousuke turns his eyes to youichi’s face, gaze flickering to the open road ahead. “i have a place in mind,” he replies, voice light. “exit here and there’s a nice place we might like.”

they could have gone farther out. ryousuke could have said, wherever you want, or you tell me, but in essence, that would have been someone else, not the decisive bastard ryousuke could be, and youichi likes.

“yes, sir,” youichi says, and obediently turns the wheel.

it’s a series of turns in an unfamiliar place, and youichi can do nothing but trust ryousuke in the dark. “you can park,” ryousuke says at last. “we’re here.” ryousuke shuts the car door quietly behind him, and youichi kills the engine with soft, curious efficiency.


they’ve parked at the edge of empty land, with nothing but trees and silence. nobody’s built anything on it, even, which is remarkable, but ryousuke tips his face upward just as youichi does. “wow,” youichi breathes, eyes wide. he wants to drink it all in, how vast it looks and how at peace ryousuke looks (pointy, prickly, venomous ryousuke), as if he’s come from the stars up there somehow.

“yeah,” ryousuke agrees, and takes a seat on the dirt.

youichi joins him down there, both of them engulfed in starlight. they have a few more hours until dawn.

Yuri Plisetsky has five gold medals, an Olympic silver, and three shoe boxes full of polaroids he's taken with Otabek, before he realises that he's in love.

He can be forgiven for it, he thinks as he lies awake in bed, Otabek sleeping beside him and Pyotya snuggled in between their legs. Loving Otabek doesn't feel like a big deal, the way he's always seen love built up to be. He knows better than to take Victor and Yuuri as an example, but they're not the only ones who have led him to believe that love is meant to be the sort of thing that he can't stop thinking about, or talking about, or skating about. He's never wanted to do any of that, so he's just never thought of it as love. He's never been quiet or secretive about the fact he wants to spend time with OTabek, but he's always thought that was different.

He feels Otabek stirring beside him, lifting his head off his pillow and blinking slowly in the dark. "Yura?"

Otabek's voice is gravelly from sleep, even though it's barely been half an hour since they've gotten into bed in the first place. It makes something hot coil in Yuri's stomach, just the same way it always does, but he's never really put thought into that before. Now, he wonders if that's part of… whatever this is.

Perhaps it's not normal for your friends to spark a flame of desire with every casual thing that they do, but Yuri has never thought much of that either, when he's surrounded by the skating community. It's ordinary to admire the beauty in other people; he's seen the way Phichit bites his lip when he watches Yuuri, the way Chris still turns heads whenever he's wearing pants that cling to him in the right way. This is just what he's used to, and he's never given it a second thought, until now.

"Go back to sleep," Yuri mutters, because he's not going to make a big deal out of this. It doesn't have to be.

Otabek hums softly and shakes his head, in that infuriating way he does when he knows that Yuri has something on his mind, and is determined to draw it out with a patient, expectant silence that works every single time.

Yuri doesn't really want to confess his love for Otabek in the middle of the night, while they're lying in bed together, wearing only their boxers. He's already having difficulty focusing past the fact that they have so much of their bare skin touching, even though he knows it's not a big deal, when it's not the first time he's noticed.

Taking a breath, he thinks about the fact that perhaps he doesn't have to confess anything at all. If Yuri's gotten this far without saying anything, that means Otabek has too. Besides, Otabek is better at these things. He knows more than Yuri does, in his quiet and understated way that still feels incredibly cool. He probably knows this too.

"I'm just happy," Yuri tells him, when that's what it all boils down to in the end. "I'm really happy with this. The way things are."

Otabek hums again, and presses a kiss to Yuri's jaw before lying back down, his head resting against Yuri's shoulder again. "Yeah. Me too."

This is the fastest fill I've ever written. I hope you like it, Mels! ❤️

(And, Takamura, I thought of you.)


Kaidoh Kaoru liked bears. He liked polar bears the best but he liked other bears a lot too. They were majestic and interesting and nobody messed with them. Sometimes, when Kaidoh was frustrated with the irritations of daily life (which included Momoshiro) he wished that he were a bear. Nobody would bother him and he could go live alone in the mountains.

Only he didn't quite want to live alone in the mountains, because there was something Kaidoh liked more than bears. In fact, if he were quite honest, which was something he always strove to be, something he even liked more than tennis. Or, rather, someone.

Kaidoh liked Inui-senpai.

He liked Inui in several different ways. He respected him as someone who was a year above him in school and in the tennis club. He appreciated him as someone who helped Kaidoh to train and develop his tennis skills. And he like-liked Inui. Like, like-liked him a LOT.

Kaidoh wasn't quite sure if Inui like-liked him too. He thought probably not, since usually Inui seemed to just say weird stuff right out in the most embarrassing way, instead of implying it or maybe writing it in a note that the other person could read. But Inui also went about things in a convoluted way sometimes in order to get data or try a complicated plan. So Kaidoh couldn't rule anything out.

He just went quietly about his daily, sometimes irritating, life, like-liking Inui-senpai but keeping it to himself so he wouldn't be a burden to anyone.

One day, Inui put his hand on Kaidoh's shoulder (which happened quite frequently and which Kaidoh enjoyed a lot). "Kaidoh," he said (which he also did a lot). "Do you like camping?"

"Yes," Kaidoh said without thinking about it too much, even though he'd never actually been camping before. But it seemed like the kind of thing he would enjoy.

"Good!" Inui said and smiled at Kaidoh, which made Kaidoh's heart go thump. "I thought we could do some mountain training since it's right before Nationals. I borrowed a tent and some other gear from Tezuka. And I bought a Kindle book about telling poisonous and edible plants apart."

"I can bring some food," Kaidoh said because as much as he liked Inui-senpai, he was not completely confident in Inui's ability to tell poisonous and edible apart, based on the effects of the health drink he made everyone in the club consume. Also, what if the Kindle battery ran out?

Inui squeezed Kaidoh's shoulder and went off to talk with Tezuka. Kaidoh felt so happy that he only yelled at Momoshiro three times the whole rest of the day.


The mountain camping spot was very beautiful and also very secluded. Kaidoh helped Inui set up the tent. He didn't tell Inui that Tezuka-buchou had given Kaidoh some verbal instructions on tent operation but it was a good thing he had since Kaidoh was able to keep the tent from collapsing over their heads. Inui-senpai was of course very smart but sometimes he didn't follow other people's instructions as closely as he expected them to follow his.

They did a bunch of running on mountain paths and racquet swings and stretching (which Kaidoh always liked the best, since it included a lot of hands on shoulders). Then Kaidoh got out the food he had packed, before Inui could suggest doing any foraging.

It was getting dark and they were both tired. Kaidoh was enjoying sitting by their small fire while Inui recorded data in his notebook and told Kaidoh about the various constellations they could see now, so far away from the city.

Then Kaidoh looked at the sturdily set up tent and began to get nervous. Because even though it was called a "two-man" tent, it was quite small. More of a "two-man-squished-together" tent. And because of Kaidoh like-liking Inui-senpai so much, he wasn't sure he'd be able to handle being squished together with him all night long. Not without wanting to do like-like things, for example, hugging or kissing.

"Maybe one of us should keep watch at all times," Kaidoh said.

Inui looked up from his notebook. "I don't think there's anything to keep watch for," he said. "And we won't get our optimal number of hours of sleep if we each have to stay awake part of the night." He looked at his phone. "In fact, our scheduled bedtime is in ten minutes. Although, I think I will go to bed now; a few extra minutes will be beneficial."

"I think I'll stay up until the scheduled time." Kaidoh was hoping he could stretch it out until Inui was asleep, then just sleep out here by the fire. Or at least keep watch for a bit until he was less nervous about their potential squishing.

Inui headed into the tent. Kaidoh could see how much room he took up; his feet were even kind of stretching the tent material at the end because he was so tall. Kaidoh poked the fire with a stick and decided he would wait at least an hour, if Inui didn't make him go in before that.

Five minutes later, Inui started to snore. He was pretty loud, actually, so Kaidoh was thinking maybe he should have gotten his earplugs out of his pack before Inui dropped off. But at least he didn't have to go squish nervously with Inui yet.

Twenty minutes later, Kaidoh heard a growl.

At first, he thought it was just Inui's snoring escalating. But the timing was off and there were definitely two different noises going on. Then he wondered if it was his stomach, since Inui had made him eat a weird looking plant he'd come across while they were hiking.

But then something crashed through the bush and came out by the tent. A bear. An actual bear. An actual bear by the actual two-man tent that Inui-senpai was sleeping inside.

Kaidoh's heart hammered against his ribs. His vision narrowed. His whole body filled with fear and rage. He jumped to his feet and grabbed the nearest big object, which happened to be a tennis racquet. He yelled, "YOU STUPID BEAR, GET AWAY FROM INUI-SENPAI." Then he charged over and hit the bear right on its snout with all the strength he had.

The bear reared up and Kaidoh hit it again, two-handed backhand, right under its chin. The bear roared.

Kaidoh roared back. He took another swing, right on the bear's ear. If he had to, he was going to beat the bear to death right here.

But the bear backed down and loped away.

Kaidoh stared after it until it was gone. His vision cleared and the racquet slipped out of his hand. His knees buckled and he slumped to the ground just as the tent flap opened.

"Are you still up, Kaidoh?" Inui said. "Were you doing vocal exercises?" He struggled out of the tent. "Do you want a snack? I have some of the chicken croquettes in case we need a midnight snack."

Kaidoh tried to speak but his throat was too dry. He swallowed and tried again. "You had food in the tent?"

"It's quite delicious!" Inui took a bite of a croquette. "Please thank your mother for me."

"There was a bear," Kaidoh said. "I..." He held up the tennis racquet, which turned out to be Inui-senpai's and which Kaidoh could see was now bent a little. "I used this."

"I remember," Inui said. "When we were at the training camp before the Kantou finals. That thief in the bear suit."

"No," Kaidoh said. "There was–" And he wanted to explain but all the huge relief of Inui being there and alive and non-bear-mauled flooded over him and for the second time that night, he moved without thinking.

He jumped to his feet and charged over and grabbed Inui-senpai around the chest and squeezed with all the strength he had. And if he said, "You stupid Inui-senpai," it was probably muffled by Inui's flannel mountain sleep shirt.

After a few seconds of squeezing, Kaidoh felt Inui squeeze him back. And his heart pounded so hard, he was sure the ground was shaking.

"I wasn't going to say anything until tomorrow," Inui said. "But I didn't just ask you up here for mountain training. I wanted to tell you that I–"

And before Inui could say anything right out in a super embarrassing way, Kaidoh raised his head and just smashed his mouth against Inui's mouth, which was probably not any more subtle and which also Kaidoh had no idea how to do correctly.

When he'd finished smashing, Kaidoh pushed his head back against Inui's shoulder. He kept hold of Inui and fortunately Inui didn't let go either.

"Yes," Inui said and his voice cracked, which Kaidoh had never heard it do before. "I wanted to tell you that I like you. Like, like-like you."

And it was so embarrassing but also Kaidoh felt so warm and happy that he didn't care. Didn't care at all. And if the bear came back, Kaidoh would fight it all over again and he would win, every time, because he was the luckiest person in the world right now.

"Um," Kaidoh said. "You probably shouldn't keep food in the tent."

"Then let's finish it now." Inui led Kaidoh back to the campfire and they ate the croquettes while holding hands.

Kaidoh made sure they washed off their hands. He hung the rest of the food up in a tree quite a ways away from the tent. If it couldn't smell food, the bear would leave them alone.

"We can do more kissing tomorrow and figure out how to do it correctly," Inui said, which was incredibly embarrassing but also something Kaidoh looked forward to very much. "We can just squish up tonight."

So they squished up together in the tent, Inui's arm around Kaidoh's chest, and Kaidoh still felt nervous and didn't really get much sleep, only partly because of Inui's snoring, but it was okay, all okay, really incredible okay. He even still liked bears, though maybe not the bear that had tried to eat Inui.

And in the morning, he'd apologize for wrecking Inui's racquet.

There's something incredibly satisfying about the sound of a baseball hitting his mitt.

Abe pulls the ball out, throwing it back to Mihashi, and raises his mitt again. It doesn't matter who's pitching, whether it's Mihashi, or Haruna, or anyone else. The feeling of being able to stop a ball coming directly at him is a good one. He has his armour, in the form of his catchers gear, but more often than not, he stops the balls before they can hit him in the first place.

He doesn't know when he started applying this to the rest of his life as well. Perhaps he's grown too comfortable with his chest plate, with his catchers mask, with the confidence that he can stop things when they're flying directly at him.

None of it prepares him for the way Mihashi sneaks past every single defence that Abe puts up, probably without even realising that he's doing it, without Abe realising that he's doing it, until they're in the dugout in the late afternoon, the sunset streaking gold and orange across the sky as he reaches for Mihashi's hand with his own.

"A-Aahh," Mihashi's shoulders go up to his ears when he remembers that he isn't meant to be using Abe's family name any more. "Takaya?"

"It's nothing," Abe replies, not looking Mihashi directly in the eye. He'd claim that doesn't know why this is so comforting, but he knows exactly why he loves the feeling of Mihashi's calluses, rough under the pads of his fingers as he rubs small circles over them. Mihashi's hands are warm, a little sweaty from practice, from wearing a mitt all afternoon, but Abe doesn't care about any of that. He just shuts his eyes and quietly wonders to himself when he started letting Mihashi so close.

Mihashi silently endures it—no, Abe realises, that's not quite it. Mihashi is blushing, across his cheeks and at the tips of his ears, his face turned away from Abe's but his small, shy smile still obvious.

"Ren?" he asks, and tightens his hand on Mihashi's fingers, careful not to squeeze too tightly that it will be uncomfortable.

Mihashi squeaks, but he isn't pulling his hands out of Abe's grip. If anything, he presses his hand against Abe's more firmly, curling their fingers together. Abe's never understood how something can feel so rough and so soft at the same time, but he doesn't question it any further. He just links their fingers together properly, slotting his fingers in the spaces between Mihashi's, like that's where they have always meant to be, and matches Mihashi's smile with his own.

Ask anyone about Oikawa’s love life and they’ll tell you that he has a veritable club of fangirls and even a few fanboys. Volleyball practices have girls sitting in the stands who do nothing but chatter to each other about how cute Oikawa is; they scream encouragement when he serves and scream again whenever his team scores.

The rest of the team has gotten used to blocking out the noise. They joke about it being Oikawa’s girlfriends, Oikawa’s harem, and nobody brings up the fact that whenever Oikawa does date someone, he inevitably gets dumped for being too obsessed with volleyball. He’s far from being the Don Juan that his fangirls would seem to imply; like many dark and beautiful things, he is best loved from a distance.

Oikawa knows this about himself.

There are only so many failed relationships a teenager can have before they shed their obliviousness and start to wonder if the problem isn’t the people they date but themselves. Especially when the people they date always give the same reason: “you love volleyball more than me”.

Of course he does, Oikawa tries explaining. Volleyball has his best friend, volleyball has victory, volleyball has teamwork and triumph and power. Relationships offer very little, besides some advantages that Oikawa is gentleman enough not to mention.

In the end, Oikawa stops mentioning it when he goes out on a date or gets dumped. The two are inevitably linked and only let him in for more teasing from his team.

It’s why nobody on Nekoma knows about Oikawa and Kuroo’s relationship. Oikawa demands secrecy as the price of letting the relationship continue, no matter how much Kuroo says that it’s not necessary and his team won’t care if he’s ‘dating the enemy’, to put as melodramatically as Oikawa does. Oikawa’s unrelenting, however, and Kuroo decides keeping secrets from his team is preferable to losing his boyfriend.

They change their names in each other’s phones. They meet in secret, wearing hoodies and shades like celebrities in disguise. When they show up to cheer each other on during matches, they wear wigs ordered off a cosplay site and dress in borrowed school jackets to further obscure their identities.

Secret relationships, Oikawa decides, are quite fun. He never thinks of how Kuroo might feel to have to watch fangirls fawning over Oikawa. He never realizes Kuroo is jealous until Kuroo tells him that he’s sick of being a secret and if Oikawa had faith in their relationship to last, he’d tell his team.

Kuroo’s logic is inescapable so Oikawa says he’ll think about it and watches his heart walk away from him.

Rui is broken and crying on the locker room floor after his team's loss, and Hiruma is watching silently as he lounges against the wall a few feet away. Rui sniffles and wipes his eyes roughly but the tears won't stop. The only other sound in the room is the occasional pop of Hiruma's bubblegum.

"You want to know how to get stronger?"

Rui sniffs again, shoves the heels of his hands against his eyes and rubs them violently for a few seconds. When he finally lifts his face to look away from the bench the tears have stopped by his eyes are red and swollen. Hiruma stares for a few seconds, then finally flicks his eyes away.

"I wouldn't know. I'm not strong--more like painfully average at all things physical. My brain is the only fuckin' thing I've got going for me most days."

Hiruma stops, unwraps another piece of gum slows and shoved it into his mouth. The movements of his jaw become almost violent as he chews.

"So how do average men like you and me compete against teams full of monsters? You find your own monsters." Hiruma's eyes flick back to meet Rui's.

"If you surround yourself with monster players, they push you and pull you and you either fuck up and get eaten alive, or you bend until they almost break you and then you straighten back up and keep letting them drag you along. Eventually you might get even a little close to their level."

Hiruma laughs suddenly and kicks a heel against wall. "You think I could kick a football 60 yards, or run a consistent 4.2 second dash, or wrestle a fucking dinosaur human hybrid? Hell no! I can't even imagine doing those things. But you know who can? The monsters I call my team."

Hiruma's mouth cracks open in what might have been an attempt at a smile. "And you know who controls those monsters? Me. And that makes a lot of people think I'm the biggest monster of them all."

Hiruma takes one step forward, then two, and then without warning stabs a hand down at the bench. When he straightens up, Rui's switchblade is left behind, jammed an inch into the polished wood.

"You know your strengths and the devil help you if you don't know your weaknesses. You want to get better? Go find yourself a monster and pray they don't kill you before you do."

Really fun quote!


Kisumi had escaped from Sousuke’s arms with arch laugh and a backwards, flirtatious look.

Sousuke looked back. They'd only been dating for a few months now and already he thought that Kisumi might be … Well, someone special. The one. Sousuke knew he tended to fall head first in love, but his feelings for Kisumi had blindsided him.

They'd always been friends, even in the times when Sousuke hadn't been much of one, and then, suddenly, like a bolt from the blue, Kisumi had confessed to him.

It wasn't that much of the surprise that Kisumi liked boys too -- he tended to attract all sorts of people, regardless of gender. But that Kisumi would like him? Sousuke had let his surprise show and Kisumi had laughed and kissed him, saying teasingly that he had the romantic self-confidence of a much uglier man.

Kisumi always said strange things like that.

Sousuke couldn't help but think that most of it was intended to get a rise out of him.

(And in fairness, it usually did.)


Kisumi stuck out his fluffy pink head from the bathroom. “I'm gonna be out in a middle. I've slipped into something that'll blow your socks off.”

Sousuke frowned. He'd already begun to take off his clothes in anticipation. Weren't they going to have sex?

“My socks are already off,” he explained patiently. “I just want you naked.”

“Oh, Sousuke! The things you say,” Kisumi said with a wave of his hand before his disappeared again. “You'll see my naked body soon enough.”

Then he laughed, a little sinisterly, and Sousuke fell a little more deeply in love.


“Close your eyes!” Kisumi said from behind the closed bathroom door. “Lie down on the bed and relax.” Sousuke sighed loudly and did what he was told. Suddenly, he felt the weight of something heavy and plastic in his hands. It sloshed a little bit when he moved it.

Sousuke opened his eyes. He saw Kisumi in front of him wearing a very smart, very slim-cut suit. His hair was slicked back and he wore a dangerous grin. He was also holding up a water gun and shot it directly into Sousuke’s face.


“Ha! Head shot counts for double,” Kisumi said smugly.


“C’mon Sousuke, I’ve waited years for this! Since that day in high school, anyway. We’re playing spies vs spies and I was even nice enough to give you your own gun!”

Sousuke took up his own weapon and tested in his hand. It was full of water and just begging to be used. His first shot at Kisumi missed. That pink-haired devil just ran, cackling as he went.

“You have to catch me first!” he shouted, as he ducked behind the kitchen door.

But Sousuke was determined now. He would have the last word.

Last squirt. Whatever. He’d have it.

Word Count: 410


At some point, Yuuri's anxiety stops being something that Victor feels like he needs to tiptoe around.

It never fully makes sense to him, the way that Yuuri can be so talented and yet so unsure, how he can know he has he skill for something and still not be sure of himself as he does it. It doesn't make sense because it's not something that Victor has ever experienced, but at the very least, he learns to make sense of that.

He learns to recognise the signs; he can read the tension in Yuuri's shoulders now, he can tell the difference between a long day of training taking its toll on him, and the slow but steady pile up of all the thoughts that are threatening to overwhelm Yuuri. He learns what he can do in those times, the way he can place a gentle hand on Yuuri's back and reassure him, or if that doesn't work, then distract him with something entirely unrelated until he gets Yuuri's mind off whatever's troubling him in the first place.

And sometimes, Yuuri's anxiety gets to him and Victor learns that it's not the end of the world when it does. It doesn't mean he's failed. This is just something else that needs to be handled, in a different way, and Victor learns that too.

("You don't have to do this," Yuuri will say sometimes, sounding miserable, his head between his knees as Victor rubs soothing circles on his back.

Victor doesn't reply because there's no need to. All he needs to do is be there, staying right by Yuuri's side, so that Yuuri realises that this isn't going to change. There's no need to argue his point because Yuuri isn't looking for an argument here, he's just seeking reassurance, and Victor has plenty of that to give.)

It's not about curing Yuuri's anxiety. There's no easy fix to this sort of thing, and there's no difficult fix either. It's all about managing it, and so Victor does, the same way he manages anything else that is thrown at him. He loves Yuuri, the same as he would anyway. This is exactly who he fell in love with in the first place and Victor would give the world for him, just for a smile, maybe for even less.

"You have me," Victor tells him, as Yuuri snuggles against him, face pressed into the curve of his neck. "That's never going to change."
