ooh, which characters do you think would have a gf that has club&sports activities quite often and can't really be with them at times? their s/o could be at their own competitions and can't come to certain volleyball games and practices all the time. i really liked your 2 years younger response, aha. thx for your beautiful blog&writing!💗
This was hard - kinda like the two year difference headcanons - because I feel like they would all understand to a degree of what it’s like to be dedicated to a sport. But, of course, there are those who it’s perhaps more important for someone to be there for support physically rather than mentally. So, not to say that they would all date someone in another club, but these are the ones that I think would be more okay with the prospect of them not witnessing every single one of their games.
Because, for me, this is actually really important. I don’t do a lot of things - I’ve never been into playing sports - so when I actually have an event, I like my boyfriend to be there to give his physical support! So that’s kinda what I thought about when considering these characters.
P.s. BF LEFT ME AGAIN. He went to IKEA so that I could work! I told him NO, I need you here to tell me to work (Though I am now four pages in!) And I am essentially just bashing about Barbie through literature, so it shouldn’t be taking me this, but I don’t wanna do it!
Sugawara Koushi: I think this is particularly true when his third year comes around and he’s not playing so much anymore - unfortunately - but he figures there’s nothing for them to see him do anyway, so it’s not like they’ll be missing much. But he’s very supportive of significant other’s interests and whatever it is that they’ve committed themselves to and he would never try and take that away from them just so they can watch him stand on the sidelines with the chance of possibly being put into the game.
Azumane Asahi: Boy is not demanding of a lot of things. He just wants to know that they support him and he’ll give support in return. It’s okay if you’re not there to see him every game or practice, there will always be more. And they’re gonna have to pry the details of the game out of him, because he’ll probably just give the vaguest description, like “yeah, we won”. NO, don’t let that be all he gives! Even though he’ll ask all about their own activities, make sure to return the excitement for his own!
Tanaka Ryuunosuke: Okay, legit, he will be upset initially, because this is his sport - he’ll claim that he’s not very good at anything else, but don’t let him do that either - and it’s very important to him. But they’re also important to him and thus the things and activities that they’re interested in are also important. Despite a little pouting, he’ll come to understand and appreciate the time and interest outside of the actual club time. And believe that this boy will give you an over exaggerated play-by-play recap when asked about it.
Ennoshita Chikara: This is one of those things where he just thinks it’s whatever initially. They have other things to do, that’s fine, it’s not a big deal at all. But, much like his dedication to volleyball started to deteriorate his self-esteem, he’ll start to question things about they’re relationship. DON’T LET HIM DO IT. He just needs the mental support to know that they’re there for him even if it doesn’t feel like it. And showing up when they can will make things better - and he’ll definitely do the same in return - and maybe suggest playing outside of club activities?
Tsukishima Kei: Kinda like Ennoshita, I think that Tsukishima wouldn’t care about his significant other showing up to any of his practices or games at the beginning. In fact, he would probably discourage them from going, saying something alone the lines of it being ‘pointless since it’s only a club’, and he’ll probably question why they did show up when they got the chance. And, in turn, I think they’d actually get into a fight about the important of club activities when he undermines their dedication to it. IT’S ONLY A PHASE. After his game with Shiratorizawa, things will get better and he’ll become a MUCH better supporter!
Yamaguchi Tadashi: I mean, yes, of course he wants his significant other there to watch and support him. But they have their own passion and he’d feel so terrible if he threw any kind of fit about them not showing up to his when he’s not playing all that much. He’ll ask them all about everything they’re doing with their sport/club and he’ll always undermine what he’s doing on the team despite precious baby being VERY important aspect to their entire dynamic. It’ll take some time, but outside of club activities, support him and help him practice his incredible serve! He’ll help with whatever they need as well.
Morisuke Yaku: This cutie is so incredibly understanding of his significant other’s passions that are outside of his own. He just gets it and pushes them to strive as high as they can with whatever they’re doing even if that means that they’ll never see him play in person. He can always retell it when he sees them after clubs or on the weekends. Really, he doesn’t mind. And he’ll always make the effort to try and be there when he can. So, when that effort is returned and they show up to a practice or something, he’s over the moon! (though he’ll try not to show it in front of Kuroo or Lev, but they’ll know from the grin he can’t remove from his face!)
Kozume Kenma: He’ll say he doesn’t want them to come, especially when they’re so busy with all their own club activities or competitions, so they should’t worry themselves on trying to shove something else on their plate. But they know - and Kuroo has undoubtedly told them - that he loves it when they show up, despite how rare or how much he might not show it on the outside. And he’ll always show up for what he can as well, supporting silently from the sidelines - boy didn’t even bring his PSP. And he’ll always give them his undivided attention when they’re speaking about their club: Always.
Akaashi Keiji: Like Yaku, he just gets it. He understands that there are important thing in their life that aren’t him. And he’s okay with that, in fact, he’s in complete support of it - he might even express a little concern if there wasn’t any interest outside of him. Each night he’ll make it a point to talk about the details of what they did that day in their activities or call them to chat about their competition they might have attended. It’s one of his favorite times of the day when he can hear the excitement in their voice and see the determination in their eyes. It makes him fall a little more in love with them each time.
Ushijima Wakatoshi: Even though this boy’s entire life is his sport, he’s okay with them not being there all the time - if any - to pursue their own passions and interests. Cause, really, they all know that he’ll be going on to play after high school, so there are always going to be plenty of chances for them to see him. And even if they can’t see him in person, they’ll see him on TV??? (hope that doesn’t sounds strange or bad???) And he’ll be very supportive of them if they’re just as understanding. He has his goals and needs someone who’s going to support him but also kinda carve their own path as well??? (I feel like I pushed this one a little?)
