how is this enormous dork 'really popular' in his class i just

Fair warning, this post won’t make sense if you haven’t read my fanfiction, To Live, To Lose, To Love.  Basically, the headcanon I’ve been working from spiraled out of control while I was writing the epilogue and I created an entire second generation of characters.  Whoops!  Ha.  For anyone who doesn’t know, in the world of TLTLTL every person’s biology allows them to house babies, so naturally there were gay ships all over the place.  We’ve got TsukkiYama children and KageHina children and AsaNoya children, and so forth.  I’m not even sorry.  The lovelies pictured are the children of a handful of the Haikyuu!! crew.  And here’s a bit about each of them:

Kageyama Aito: Passionate and serious, can be very intense and laser-focused on his goals. Very driven and hardworking. Comes off as brooding and unapproachable but is actually very kind. People are often surprised at how gentle he is during interpersonal interactions because it’s so different from how he is when he’s working on anything he cares about. He’s the one who seems like he isn’t paying attention but actually has his finger on the pulse of everything and everyone around him. He tends to be the protector, quick to jump in on behalf of anyone he loves and defend them, even if it means getting into a fist fight. It’s gotten him into trouble before, but nobody can really fault him for it because he never instigates and is always justified.

Kageyama Eiji: 3 years younger than Aito, same age as Hiromi. Exuberant, extroverted, generally fun to be around. Likes to play pranks and tell jokes that may or may not be funny - he’s hit or miss as a comedian but everyone loves him for it. Very physically affectionate, he’s fond of hugs of all varieties, will jump on others in excitement, and basically has two settings: fast and loud. He runs everywhere and talks loudly. He’s popular with just about everyone because he’s basically a ray of sunshine like Shouyou.

Tsukishima Takashi: One year older than Aito and second-eldest of the kids. Sweet-natured and very giving. Passionate about volunteering to serve people in need. Introverted by nature but also very open and quick to befriend others. Soft-spoken and great at soothing tempers, he tends to be the mediator when fights break out between any of the kids. A little impulsive, he sometimes jumps feet-first into things and then has “oh shit” moments when he realizes he’s in over his head. Smart as a whip, but average grades because he often gets distracted by things he’s more interested in.

Tsukishima Hiromi: Almost-but-not-quite 4 years younger than Takashi. Also soft-spoken and introverted; a gentle soul. Not very talkative and tends to be a wallflower but doesn’t feel as awkward about it as other more extroverted people feel around him. He has the best grades in his class and is a really good writer. Carries a journal around with him and can usually be found scrawling ideas, thoughts, and doodles in it. He’s the one everyone talks to when they need an ear to bend or a shoulder to cry on because he’s an excellent listener but doesn’t really get tangled up in other peoples’ problems. He always tags along with the others when they get up to shenanigans even though he doesn’t really care one way or the other about having adventures.

Tanaka Asami: Same age as Eiji and Hiromi.  Extroverted, boisterous, fun-loving, and competitive. Not above intimidation, particularly when first meeting any new person. Not the cleverest but far from stupid, she just focuses more on what she’d rather be doing, which is basically anything except for boring responsibilities. When she is focused she’s a force to be reckoned with, but most of the time she’s being a silly dork and trying to get a little recognition as someone cool. Basically a female version of her father.

Kuroo Machi: One year older than Aito. As a genderfluid person she embraces her biological maleness but tends to prefer her feminine side. Soft-spoken, witty, introverted, laid-back, and friendly. Very sharp, she’s good at reading other people’s character and usually has a good feel for other people within one or two conversations. She can take or leave the company of others but will always accept an invitation to hang out. She normally just listens to conversations unless she feels she’s got something to contribute that could improve the conversation or whatever plans are being concocted. Has been known to slyly encourage the others to get up to shenanigans that they probably had better not, but never anything truly worrisome.

Iwaizumi Nariko: Same age as Machi.  Aggressively aspirational, enormously talented, effortlessly beautiful, and aware of all of it. Popular by default, sought after by many. Airy personality, very charming, never has anything outright bad to say about others but is a pro at delivering backhanded compliments. All too happy to instigate opponents and takes probably too much pleasure in winning, especially if she wins by a landslide. She’s Tooru’s child through and through.

Nishinoya Hideo: Eldest of all the kids by 3 years. Tall, cheeky, a bit nerdy. Brave like Yuu, but mild-mannered like Asahi.  Favors a “wild” appearance like Asahi, giving him a rugged, manly appearance that belies his inner nerdiness. He has a great sense of humor and a lot of energy, and has interests that don’t seem to suit his macho appearance, such as fantasy novels and abstract painting. He’s the keeper of the kids and watches over them with an affectionate, teasing manner.

Your thoughts on high school sterek where Stiles is the schools matchmaker and Derek comes to him cause he needs help wooing Paige and Stiles helps him but along the way Stiles falls for Derek and doesn't know what he should do about it?

Oh no, poor baby Stiles! OKAY OKAY OKAY, BUT WHAT ABOUT THIS. (Sorry to make this ALL ABOUT STEREK BUT THIS IS ME YOU ARE TALKING TO HERE.)

What about Derek having an enormous crush on Stiles and even though he is a jock and popular he can never work up the courage to ask Stiles out. For one, tons of people try and get Stiles’ attention and Stiles never seems to realise they are asking him out?? Which would be adorable but Derek is pretty awful with words- at least, around Stiles he gets all shy and can’t even remember his own name half the time- so he can pretty much imagine how subtly asking Stiles out would go down, never mind asking him outright.

And so of course there is a lot of pining and wallowing and ice creaming eating until CORA HAS HAD ENOUGH BECAUSE SHE HAS TO SUFFER THIS IN CLASS AS WELL AS AT HOME and she drags Derek over to Stiles one day and says “he needs you, badly” and storms off. Derek is absolutely mortified but, hey, at least he is kind of here now? THE PROBLEM IS THOUGH Stiles thinks Cora means he needs him for match making purposes not making out purposes. AND SO LET THE MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND DRAMA ENSUE AS STILES ASKS DEREK WHO HE WANTS HELP TALKING TO AND DEREK JUST BLURTS OUT PAIGE BECAUSE SHE’S GOT THOSE  SAME CUTE LITTLE MOLES STILES DOES ON HIS FACE AND EVERY TIME HE SEES HER ALL HE CAN THINK ABOUT IS HOW HE WANTS TO SEE STILES. (He has issues, leave him alone.)

AND THEN OF COURSE STILES GOES AND FALLS HEAD OVER CONVERSE FOR DEREK and there will be some tragic scene where Stiles listens to sad songs in his room and watches Star wars and Erica finally has to intervene when Han Solo says “I know “to Leia and Stiles just throws curly fries at his laptop and yells “YOU DON’T KNOW THE PAIN OF REAL LOVE!!”  

AND OF COURSE AT ONE POINT THERE WILL BE AN ALMOST KISS. BUT THEN SOMEONE WILL INTERRUPT THEM (let’s face it, it’s probably going to be Scott) and then Derek goes off on his date with Paige which actually goes really well (you know, once Derek breaks down and confesses he’s hopeLESSLY in love with Stiles and he doesn’t know what to do). And the next day at school everyone is talking about how they saw Derek and Paige on a date and how they looked so cute together and how they were smiling and STILES IS CRUSHED.

BUT THEN PAIGE AND ERICA TALK STUFF OUT who then in turn ENROL THE HELP OF CORA AND LYDIA TO TALK SOME SENSE INTO THESE DORKS (and while we are at it let’s have Cora and Lydia make out aggressively while arguing over how best to do this thang because always) AND THEN THE FOUR OF THEM CONSPIRE TO SET DEREK AND STILES UP ON A DATE AND THEN THERE IS AWKWARDNESS AND LOVE CONFESSIONS AND DEREK BUYS STILES A MILKSHAKE AND STILES GIVES DEREK A LIFT HOME IN HIS JEEP AND THERE IS THAT ALL ALONG WAITED FOR KISS AND IT’S PERFECT.

The end.
