Summary: It is the fundamental nature of Oikawa Tooru to push forward. As a kid, he’d been a cry baby, still was, if Hajime was honest with himself, but it was always with the air of someone throwing themselves at the world and expecting it to yield. Oikawa Tooru would claw his way higher even if there was nowhere higher to go.
(Or: Oikawa Tooru has too much potential for his own good.) Sequel to Savior, can maybe-kind-of-sort-of be read as a stand alone but you will be confused at times.
Pairings: IwaOi, BokuAkaKuroKen
Tooru nods, squeezing a little tighter and burying his head in Hajime’s shirt. “Read to me?” Tooru asks.
Hajime leans back and grabs the book they’re working through this week from the nightstand. “Alright, where were we?”
“Page 97,” Tooru murmurs.
“Ok,” Hajime says, opening the book up obediently.
“Do the voices too,” Tooru says, nudging Hajime with his foot playfully.
Hajime groans. “Do I have to?”
Tooru just flicks his eyes up and looks pleadingly, and Hajime’s scowl barely hides how he caves immediately. “Fine,” he grumbles.

They are taking them. The thought penetrates Miranda’s mind - cuts through the haze and the panic and the horror that she feels at the sight of James’ limp form being carried out the door, his bare feet dragging, eyes closed, blood still welling from the scrapes he’s received during his short-lived bid for freedom. They are taking Thomas and James away from her.
Or: Alfred orders both Thomas and James to be taken to Bedlam. Miranda is left to rescue them with the aid of Admiral Hennessey.
So, I just submitted my last ever proper assignment for my university degree (still have to put in a portfolio next week, but I’ve already done pretty much all the work for that). Holy shit. Now I’m going to sleep (it’s 1.30am here and I’m bloody tired).
