haikyuu fic rec #1
i’ve read quite a bit of fanfic since joining the haikyuu fandom, so i’ve decided to put together a list of some of my favorites so far. obviously i’m a shameless multishipper so these are gonna be all over the place.
along dream paths by mysecretfanmoments (ukatake, 3.2k)
Ukai makes the mistake of looking in Takeda’s notebook after practice one day, expecting volleyball notes; what he finds is a love poem.
just a really good ukatake
azumane asahi’s big gay romance by jibrailis (asanoya, 13.6k)
The air-con gets cranky, Asahi gets a job, and Nishinoya gets his man.
kind of silly and a lot cute.
jaywalkers by batman (kurotsukki and assorted pairings, 127k)
A collection of stories the morals of which all amount to: if something can go wrong, it will. Also, if something can go right, it also will.
Alternatively, that one college AU where everyone fucks all the shit up.
my dudes. the hype is real. i literally cannot recommend this series enough.
pieces by therabbitwhisperer (bokuaka and assorted pairings, wip)
The miraculous life of Akaashi Keiji, a tragedy in ten parts.
what’s funny is i started reading this thinking it was going to be a fluffy tattoo / florist au, then the end of the first part happened. really highly recommended but do heed the warnings, there’s a lot of potentially triggering / upsetting material in there.
saffron and cayenne pepper by dontsaycrazy (kagehina, 30k)
Cooking is hard. Even if you have your very attractive, very grumpy neighbor there to help you.
In which Hinata’s lack of cooking skills are a danger to him and others. Luckily (or not), Kageyama is willing to teach him, for the sake of avoiding any burned down apartments.
tooth-rotting kagehina fluff with a side of kiyoyachi, what more can you ask for
oh we play, in autumn days by aruariandance (kagehina, 7.6k)
“I think about your collarbones in Calculus,” he says, and then waits for death to be swift.
all of aruariandance’s kagehinas are great but this one is my fave.
impulse by metis_ink (semishira, 15k)
Second year Semi Eita faces the downward spiral that is his life following the arrival of some first year setter who’s way too cocky for his own good.
tfw you actually find good fic in a rarepair tag
birkenstocks and other problems by dicaeopolis (asanoya, 2.5k)
Nishinoya Yuu has 99 problems, and Azumane Asahi is all of them.
Or, “tiny panicking bisexual meets tall panicking lesbian”.
rule 63 asanoya. nuff said
on stranger tides by theroyalsavage (kagehina and assorted pairings, 74k)
When Hinata Shouyou is 13 years old, his village is raided by pirates.
Most everything Hinata knows is destroyed in the attack, lost to the flames, but he and his sister are pulled from the wreckage by a boy with eyes the color of a storm. Their lives are saved, but irrevocably altered - their home is lost forever, and there is something strange about the pirates, something blurry and shadowed and wrong.
A darkness is rising out of the depths of the ocean. The sea itself is stirring, and nothing can stop it when it wakes.
pirates of the caribbean was, like, my childhood, so. this au is crazy good.
he always starts something by codango (kurotsukki, 38.3k)
In his third year of high school, Kei is recruited by Kuroo’s university to play volleyball. A weekend on campus is plenty of time to check out the team, meet the coaches, see a game from the bench… and see if his two-year-old crush on Kuroo has any chance at all.
this is actually the fic that got me interested in kurotsukki. i had read the asanoya fic in the same ‘verse and continued with this one out of curiosity. suffice it to say this fic holds a special place in my heart lol.
the dew of little things by poulerslashes (kagehina, 3.9k)
It wasn’t as though Kageyama needed the friends–kids who shared video games, who watched cartoons, who did this and that of no consequence–who would eat up all his time if he gave them any to start with. He had volleyball, and volleyball was more than enough.
10/10 would get slapped in the feels again.
anyway that’s all for now, i might do more of this once i accumulate more recs.
