Among Us (verse, M) by dgalerab - X-Men AU with a side of kick-ass, angst,
more angstand the dynamic between all the characters AND the character development is just… my favourite thing ever. You’re in luck if you’re an IwaOi (and KuroKen) fan too: this is literally the fic that converted me from being ‘neutral IwaOi’ into ‘I’m now completely and irrevocably in love with them’. read also: e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g by dgalerab, starting with Notes: Bokuto Koutarou (G)
arrogant boy, love yourself so no one has to (oneshot, G) by earlgrey_milktea - Bokuto-centric character study and the consequence of familial expectations. Hooo boy, this was the first BokuAka fic I ever read and it still hits hard. So, so well done. read also: and your heart’s against my chest (G)
Behind Bricks (multi, E) by deathbelle - “Akaashi has always had a good idea of what his future would look like. Becoming a prostitute hadn’t been part of the plan.” Okay, I’m captivated by Akaashi’s characterisation when he’s between a rock and a hard place - and it’s not as explicit as you’d think (or at least not yet), but there’s a huge level of introspection and ‘what would you do’ in this fic and I cannot get enough of it. No kidding, the weekly update schedule of this is the reason why I now look forward to Saturdays.
better than spy films (oneshot, G) by dalyeau - Akaashi is Kuroo’s new roommate and Bokuto falls in love. …Yes I know dalyeau’s fics are some of the most popular BokuAka fics on AO3 but~ they’re exactly that for a reason and I’ll forevermore adore the heck out of them. read also: love in the time of wifi (G), tea-stained polaroids (G)
bitter (twoshot, G) by silvercistern - Valentines/White Day fic. The fact that these two chapters were posted on the corresponding days make them all the more sweeter– or… not sweeter? Good bitter? (And yes, the countdown to White Day was agonising purely because I couldn’t wait for this update and it was so, so worth it.) A headcanon I could 100% believe in Akaashi and, of course, no-one would pick up on something like that faster than Bokuto Koutarou. Super quirky, completely adorable. read also: Character Development (T)
