One time whilst Asahi was going down on Noya, Noya accidentally got his hands stuck in Asahi’s hair and so he had to remove his bun to continue. Every time he did so after that he would remove his bun, and it got to the point where he removed his bun in the middle of a match and Noya had to excuse himself since he had accidentally been conditioned to associate the two.
Sometimes when Asahi is a playfully upset with Noya he purposely makes himself taller so that he can’t get any apology kisses and it winds Noya up more than anything.
Noya realised he had fallen for Asahi after they won a practice match. He had jumped up and Asahi caught him, holding him up to his own height as they laughed about it together and when they finally came down from the thrill of the win, they were left gazing into each others’ eyes. His heart was racing like crazy when he realised how close they were, and at that moment he figured that maybe he loved him.
The team all notice how they look at each other, and whilst Noya is certain they all ‘ship’ them as they do with Koushi and Daichi, for example, Asahi is completely oblivious and doesn’t even realise that that’s what he’s feeling for Noya.
Asahi telling Noya that he loves him for the first time and Noya getting pissed off and bursting into tears, because why would he even say that a week before he leaves to go off to university?
Asahi taking the train back from university every other week so he can spend it with Noya but the terms and conditions are that he picks him up from school so he looks cool in front of the first years being taken home by his university student boyfriend.
The two of them hiding their relationship from their parents for the longest time but Asahi evenutally telling his mother in a nervous flurry that he’s in love and his mother inviting Noya over so the family can get to know him as Asahi’s boyfriend instead of just Asahi’s friend.
Asahi being teased over the fact that he’s looking around 5 or 6 years older than his actual age and Noya flipping absolute hell as he tries to beat those teasing him up. Asahi meanwhile has to call Daichi to come and help them, and after sorting it out Daichi blames Asahi for not holding his boyfriend back as he tried to shred a kid.
AU where Asahi works on a farm and Noya is that kid who takes a shortcut home by running through his field and scaring the sheep. One day Asahi catches him and tries to confront him about it, although he’s painfully nervous about it, and it only gets worse when Noya points out that the stuttering and blushing is cute.
AU where Noya works in Starbucks and is dared to hit on a stranger, and not only does he pull the classic “careful, you’re hot” but also calls out, “Latte for Asahi! Is there a number that comes with that pretty face?” leaving Asahi wanting to be swallowed up by the ground and Tanaka absolutely howling.
AU where they don’t get close during high school and leave without keeping contact but four or five years later Tanaka and Noya go to a night club/bar, and Daichi and Koushi take Asahi to the same club just incidentally following a failed relationship. Asahi’s not really into it so he stays by the bar until he’s absolutely smashed and a ‘stranger’ takes him to dance. Things gradually escalate and they end up ditching their friends and going home together, only to wake up the next morning and recognise each other. Cue Noya purposely embarrassing Asahi, and Asahi quietly suggesting that before they do that again they should probably go for coffee at least once.
Noya having intense night terrors whilst he’s over at Asahi’s house and having to climb into bed with him and cuddle close and Asahi just getting protective and holding him as close as possible as he sings softly into his ear to calm him down
