Well, I just killed off Daisuga in this AU…

Atlantis - Haikyuu AU SCENE 1

Happy super belated birthday to my darling @lifeinahole27. Sarah I know this is so far past your birthday but I did start it before if that counts for anything! You are one of the greatest treasures I have found here and  wish I had more to give than just my words. 

I found this prompt so please accept 8000ish words of AU in celebration of the festival of you! Thanks to @amagicalship for kicking my arse hard in beta and making this so much better as a result!

Her choice of words confused him - a feeling that must have been obvious on his face because she slid a tumbler of rum down next to his water glass and continued, “You’re here often enough and always with someone different - so I assume you are on first dates. Unless you’re some kind of serial womaniser, of course?”

Her expression suggested that she had not completely ruled out the second option.

“You’re quite perceptive, aren’t you love?” he replied, curious as to why this stranger was invested in his romantic escapades at all. Was it not enough to have Liam and Elsa not-so-gently prodding him towards the opposite sex? Still, she had come bearing gifts, he thought, tipping the glass towards her in thanks and taking a sip. “Although on this occasion the young lady in question is merely running late.”
