Haikyuuiverasry Fic Recs (Part 2)

Wow ok I honestly didn’t expect the fic recs to go over that well, but since they did, I’m also providing a list of some of my absolute favorite incomplete (but still updating) fics! Also you should have seen the preliminary list there were like 50 fics on it I had to narrow it down a lot.

  1. Say You’ll Remember Me (IwaOi) Absolutely one of my favorite fics in existence. It doesn’t hurt that the author is very sweet. If I were to recommend one fic out of all of these for you to read and subscribe to, this would be it. Also if you read the comments from ButterflyCrossing (my AO3) from chapter 4 onwards, you can see my shenanigans of guessing Seiji’s dad.
  2. your voice is my favorite color (TsukiYama) Tsukishima has synesthesia and is rather insecure about it, but this is really good.
  3. boiled frogs (MatsuHana) Like if ya’ll ever wanted an angsty but well written matsuhana fic about them pining after each other but also dating other people because they’re complete dumbasses, this fic is the way to go.
  4. Hot Pink (IwaOi) A plauge was slowly killing off all humans, so they designed synthetic bodies and many people have made the transfer. IwaOi is a non-synthetic and synthetic power couple, and they accidentally make an enemy who wipes Oikawa’s memory banks.
  5. OUT! (Yamaguchi/OC) Oikawa comes out as “Japan’s First Gay Athlete” and Yamaguchi tries to figure out whether this is a good thing or if everyone will be able to tell he’s gay now.
  6. Scattered Light (KageHina) Kageyama the colorblind musician meets and develops a crush on Hinata the deaf painter. It’s actually super cute.
  7. it’s lonely on jupiter (IwaOi) I’m just gonna quote the summary and tell you that it’s an amazing fic. “oikawa’s always loved aliens but never thought he’d actually fall in love with one”
  8. Mud, Stars, and You (IwaOi) Oikawa the model needs some extra cash, so he works on a farm for a bit. There he meets and crushes on Iwaizumi, who isn’t all that interested… at first.
  10. The Tengu and the Prince (KageHina) This is a beautiful fic with like folklore and drama and love and its so great read it.
  11. Leviticus 20:13 (KurooTsukki) This is the fic that actually made me start shipping KurooTsukki so you know it’s gotta be good. Tsukki is trying his darndest to be the perfect little christan boy but then bad boy Kuroo appears and he can’t hide his sexuality anymore.
  12. Ravaging (YakuLev) Lev reluctantly goes on vacation with his family and there meets and falls for Yaku. Also featuring Haiba Alisa in later chapters because the author loves her, I love her, and the fic started before she was introduced but she’s too cool not to be added.
  13. One Year (Gen, Multi) Yachi and Ennoshita are college students studying the Suila (basically omegaverse humans who had a war a long time ago with the normal humans) and are able to score a trip to the island where the Suila have lived, isolated, for hundreds of years. Some of the Karasuno pack is welcoming, others, not so much.
  14. I’ll wait with you in rain or snow (DaiSuga) WOLF CHILDREN AU OMFG AND IT HAS ART YOU GOTTA READ IT
  15. Shoreline (KageHina) Kageyama the merman meets Hinata the human. They become friends despite Kageyama’s initial apprehension, as Daichi has told him time and time again that humans are BAD.
  16. new phone who dis (IwaOi) Please read this it’s in the form of text messages and it’s so beautiful. Oikawa complains to the wrong number about ushiwaka, but iwa-chan listens anyways.
  17. Arrest me Officer (IwaOi) Oikawa is mugged, and falls for the hunky police officer trying to help him. Iwa-chan just wants to do his job, and has enough distractions with Kuroo, Bokuto, and Lev on the force.
  18.  A Way to Fly (Gen) Have you ever wanted a firefly au? Well look no further, here is the thing!

“In skiing, there’s such an alpha male thing about pulling the hottest chicks,” Kenworthy says. “I know hooking up with hot girls doesn’t sound like the worst thing in the world. But I literally would sleep with a girl and then cry about it afterward. I’m like, ‘What am I doing? 
I don’t know what I’m doing.’”

Brooklyn signs Jason Collins, NBA’s first openly gay player

NBCSports: The Nets announced the signing of Jason Collins to a 10-day contract on Sunday, making him the first openly gay, active professional athlete to play for any of the four major professional sports leagues in the country.

While that’s a milestone certainly worth celebrating, the best part of the Collins signing is that it has nothing to do with his sexual preference.

“The decision to sign Jason was a basketball decision,” Nets GM Billy King said in the team’s official release — one which made no mention of Collins’ sexuality.

Jason Collins, who played with the NBA’s Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards this season, has disclosed that he is gay. This makes him the first active openly gay male athlete in the four major American pro team sports. The center, who said he is now a free agent “literally and figuratively.”
UMass basketball player Derrick Gordon comes out

Derrick Gordon, a starter for the University of Massachusetts men’s basketball team, this week became the first openly gay player in Division I men’s college basketball. 

Close to a year after Jason Collins became the first openly gay male athlete in a big-four pro league, Gordon says his announcement was partially inspired by Collins recently signing with the Brooklyn Nets. 

“I just didn’t want to hide anymore, in any way,” Gordon told ESPN. “I didn’t want to have to lie or sneak. I’ve been waiting and watching for the last few months, wondering when a Division I player would come out, and finally I just said, ‘Why not me?’” …

According to Gordon, after he made his announcement, one of his teammates immediately spoke up and said, “We got you; you’re one of us.” Afterward, Gordon and four other members of the team ate dinner together.

“Before, I usually just kept to myself because I didn’t want to lie or be fake,” Gordon said. “But not anymore. I feel so good right now. It’s like this huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”

Thrilled about this. Many, many congratulations to him. We’re on to something big here. 

Okay so I know a lot of people have been complaining about the time 100 most influential people list, but seriously how does Jason Collins make the list with no mention of Brittany Griner (or Megan Rapinoe and Abby Wambach)? He’s not the first gay openly athlete when women have been coming out for years.
And on that note, where was Ellen Page??
