Just like most “mornings after”, the day following the Scottish Independence Referendum dawned grey and dreich. There was scarcely a breath of wind on the moor, nor any sign of sun in the sky, and Algy was feeling decidedly limp. He draped himself over the remains of a blasted rowan tree, and gazed for some time at the calm water of the lochan. As he perched there in the stillness, watching nothing very much happening at all, he remembered a poem, which he dedicates to all his Scottish friends who are feeling disappointed and depressed today:

          Hold fast to dreams
          For if dreams die
          Life is a broken-winged bird
          That cannot fly.

          Hold fast to dreams
          For when dreams go
          Life is a barren field
          Frozen with snow.

[Algy is quoting the poem Dreams by the 20th century American poet Langston Hughes.]

What kind if tattoos would karasuno get?

Daichi would get some sort of pattern on his wrist, upper arm, or the back of his neck. Something that would be partially hidden but peaks out a bit if he moves around.

Sugawara and Asahi would get really artsy tattoos like watercolour tattoos and it would be placed on their backs.

Nishinoya would definitely get one of those motivational lines from his shirts or a certain character and get it on his arm.

Tanaka would get something along his back, it wouldn’t be wings but something that looked nice or a saying that spoke to him.

Ennoshita and Yamaguchi would get something subtle but is meaningful, and would get it on their ankle or somewhere that could hide it pretty well.

Kageyama would get a tattoo that starts from his upper back and creeps along his shoulder. We like to think it would kind of represent how he’s constantly changing from his past self.

Hinata would totally get wings on his back!

Tsukishima would get a tattoo starting on the top back part of his neck and make its way down. It would be a cool little pattern.
