Kyoutani and Yahaba have enough on their minds in third year, as ace and captain of the volleyball team, butting heads both on and off the court while trying to improve their game so the team has a shot of winning this year. When they find a puppy abandoned in a park, their lives only get even more complicated.
the nishinoya family is having a reunion, and noya lies to his mom about being in a relationship to get her off his back. when ryuu gets a call from noya asking him to go to the reunion with him as his fake boyfriend, he’s torn―he’s just starting to get over how in love he is with his best friend, and he’s not sure that pretending to be his boyfriend is going to help with that. he agrees nonetheless, because he’s nothing if not a good friend, which leads to a week of denial, confusion and awkwardness. it doesn’t help that noya is sending really mixed signals.
but even when everything else seems unsure, one thing remains constant―they’re best friends, and that’s not going to change.
Can you list your 3 fav pairings, why you like them, and a senerio you wish to see them in? (Sorry if u already did this in the past)
WHOA I SURE CAN
But picking 3…. that is so fucking hard. ALSO YOU KNOW WHAT, I’m not good at coming up with scenarios can I just do a fic rec instead :((( I don’t follow rules and I like to leave the writing to the writers ya’ll, I JUST MAKE GIFS.
Why I like them: I LOVE them because their relationship just makes sense to me? Akaashi is the ying to Bokuto’s yang, they are there for each other, they play well as a team. They give me the warm fuzzies. They’re both beautiful and full of admiration for each other. What’s not to like???
Fic rec: il mio ragazzo falso, T, 18K (A GOOD FICCCC, Akaashi has an italian extended family, he and Bokuto travel together, it’s cute af)
Why I like them: CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TROOOOOPE. This is just another pairing that makes sense to me. They’ve been friends for years, they’ve been through a lot together. They understand each other better than anyone. They have this non-verbal communication thing down, they’ve played on a team together for fucking ever, they aren’t afraid to be real with one another, Iwa especially lol. Fucking iwaoi will be the death of me I swear.
IM CRYING THIS IS SO HARD TO ONLY STICK TO 3 I bet you thought I was gonna go with Kagehina but I’m gonna go with…
Why I like them: Boy do I love Ukatake. I feel like this was probably my first real “WOW I FUCKING LOVE THIS” ship in the show. I think they are so so sweet and I enjoy the bad-boy/nerdy teacher pairing a looooot. I love this ship because they have their bond as coach and club adviser with their mutual love of all the karasuno boys to bring them together. They’re just too cute.
Fic rec:Resistance, T, 1K (AN ADORABLE MARRIAGE PROPOSAL FICLET, MY HEART IS SO FULL)
Anche coloro che ti vogliono bene riescono a distruggerti. E credimi, fa molto più male essere feriti da quelle persone che pensavi fossero lì per aiutarti quando invece contribuivano solo alla tua rovina.
Haikyuu!! Fic Recs (pkmnshippings’ masterpost part 1)
@subtlyimpulsive asked me if i had any fic recs, and as i started making the list, i realised just how many fics i would recommend to people across various ships, so i decided to put it into text post format instead. i’ve arranged them by ship, in alphabetical order, for ease of reading. under the cut because damn this list is long as hell. it’s also the last fic rec list i am ever going to make for haikyuu!!, because it took me hours to put it all together, and i am tired.
tumblr does have a limit to the amount of links you’re allowed to have in one post, so i’ve split the list into two parts. there’s a link to part 2 here, and at the end of this post.
Dea’s 2015 Haikyuu!! ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE FIC REC LIST
I saw @downmoonwrites made a small list of fics she liked and wanted to try it, too. I failed in containing myself… Read more runner ups in my other lists: RAREPAIRS, PWP Seriously. Do it. They’re all great. Coosing favourites is SO HARD ALREADY
Being a young parent is not easy, and newly-single fathers Daichi, Oikawa, Bokuto and Kuroo come to learn this the hard way through the daily challenges of raising children on their own. However, all is not hopeless, and when the four of them meet in a support group program, they will come to learn that together, they can get through anything, and fight despite the odds stacked against them. A mostly light-hearted story about how even single parenthood is just another bump in the road if you have the right people around you to pick you up when you fall.
This fic changed my life. Literally. Go read it.
Below Destiny by volleyball_crow (with Ennoshita and Karasuno, G)
The one in which Daichi tries to ambush Ennoshita to give him a suitably emotional speech about the joys of captainship, and Ennoshita will have absolutely none of it, definitely not, not even if you payed me, thank you very much.
If there is one fic I want EVERYONE to read, it is this one. This is a masterpiece, incredibly thought out and characterized. I’ve never seen anything like it.
“Oh,” Konoha says suddenly, staring up at the ceiling with Akaashi like he might find answers there, “is this about your boyfriend?” “He’s not my boyfriend,” Akaashi replies on autopilot. “You kids are so technical these days,” Konoha says, as though he is not a mere one year older than Akaashi. “He’s basically your boyfriend. You guys watch movies together every other week and message each other on LINE in between.” “As friends,” Akaashi corrects. “As friends,” Konoha mocks.
Very relatable, adorable and cute. One of my absolute all-time favourites.
With his grandparents’ fiftieth wedding anniversary looming fast and large, Akaashi finds himself urged to bring a date and not quite to the point where his family knows that said date will not be of the female variety. At some point, he has to decide which will be the least frightening prospect — braving coming out to his family or endure Operation: Find Keiji A Girlfriend 2k15. And why is the only person he can think of to drag along to this thing his overly-spirited volleyball captain?
One of the reasons I can never ever get enough of fake dating fics. Too good. Also I won’t get Bokuto crooning Disney songs out of my head. Forever ingrained…
Tsukishima Kei’s summer-break included an improvised trip, booze, seafood, the messiest soundtrack ever, too many texted conversations with Tanaka and Yamaguchi, embarrassing amounts of pining, a new word and one relevant question. Also, what might have been attempts to convince him of the power of friendship.
Best Tsukki characterization I’ve seen. Great soundtrack and even better OCs!
“I figured it out about a month before graduation.” When Oikawa explains this, they are sitting together in a boat in the middle of Lake Pichola, India, hiding at the end of the fourteenth century with no one to bother them. Hajime sifts his hand through the water to cool his face while Oikawa pauses to collect himself, sights fixed on the royal blue of an emerging night sky. He holds two fingers up to the yellowed moon, pinches it into forced perspective, and palms it completely to force the light out of his eye. At the view, he smiles like he’s defeated all the knowing gods, the fates and their fickle futures, and humbles himself from the stratosphere. “You know the story, Iwa-chan,” Oikawa tells him, back on earth. “Boy jumps to Miyagi in attempt to run away. It is raining, when he meets another, and they are both five years old. Neither of them can decide if he is from years past, or years to come. Hell, he could be a monster, for all they know.”
Fuck, this is well thought out. Breathtaking storytelling. I bought art for this fic because I loved it so much. Read all the other fics of this series, too!
“Y’know why she broke up with me?” “Cause she realised she could never be good enough for you?” Daichi blew air through his nose. “Because I’m still living with my ex.” “I’m not your ex, I’m your best friend.” “You’re both.” In which Daichi wants change, Kuroo doesn’t want to lose his best friend, and life has never been kind to them.
Kuroo lets his perfectionism get in the way of exploring the more physical side of his relationship with Kenma; Kenma decides to take matters into his own hands.
Yes, I know everyone agrees that Val’s fics are a blessing and this is perfect, but that’s not gonna hinder me putting it on this list! Give me characters struggling and growing and communicating every day…
The beach is quiet, except for at night. Morisuke doesn’t move from it; he can’t bring himself to, lost in his own desolation and fury, because how dare he abandon him like this, after taking him away from his home. During the day, Morisuke only ventures far enough into the trees to gather fruit, biting into it and relishing the bitter taste of unripe juice on his tongue.
Oh my god this is so perfect. I love this fic so much I commissioned a gorgeous piece of art for it.
Akaashi inhaled it quicker than before, closing his eyes again. He leaned forward, chasing the smoke out from Kuroo’s mouth, and then their lips were touching, just briefly before Akaashi broke away to exhale the remaining smoke. Koutarou didn’t realize he’d made a sound until Kuroo looked over at him. “You okay, bro?” he asked, the teasing tone in his voice almost hidden by the roughness of it.
My first encounter with Bokuroaka and DAMN was it contagious. Favourite polyship ever.
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.
“She’ll breeze into your life just when you least expect it. Make sure you look up at the right time, huh!” On the outside, Keishin Ukai has a decent life. He works hard, plays hard, and is relishing his role as Karasuno’s coach. The one niggle - his parents nagging him to find a wife - he can easily ignore, ‘cause between his work, the harvest, and training, Keishin has no time for a girlfriend. Then she sashays into his life, and he’s not just thinking about volleyball and fava beans.
Oh god, this fic. Hurt me, healed me, made me feel. Simply amazing.
The tale of how Kuroo Tetsurou invades and subsequently ruins Oikawa Tooru’s life with his larger-than-life fire magic and his terrible hair. or The elite Spring Leaf Academy for Talented Young Magicians has a pecking order that’s been carved out across twelve complicated years of blood, sweat, and charisma. Tooru is more than a little stressed when the arrival of the famous Kuroo Tetsurou threatens to change everything.
A very new addition, author will be revealed tomorrow! I love love love the worldbuilding and character interactions… this is dreamy <3
He dreamed the first night Suga crawled into bed with him, hazy, vague ideas of temples and conversations with himself, the touch of a lover. He’d forgotten about it, until now, and the little details come flooding back, like he’s dreaming it all over again, and with such clarity he could almost reach out and pull a wisp out of his mind. or- Tooru’s always loved the moon.
Such poetic writing, truly unique! Passionate and subtle at the same time aaahhhhhhhh
“Do you think that’s progress?” Akaashi asks. He can’t help the dubious note in his voice. “They get so caught up in each other that they forget everyone else,” Kenma points out, without bothering to look up. Just continues tap tap tapping on his PSP. “Not that they realise.” “I suppose not,” Akaashi says, after a moment. He glances over at Kenma. “This is turning out harder than we thought.” There’s an odd tension between Bokuto and Kuroo, one that everyone seems to be able to pick up on. Everyone of course, except for themselves.
This is fucking hilarious and so well characterized. A dream.
Ho capito che ti innamori davvero solo una volta.
Provi amore per qualcuno solo una volta.
Tutte le altre volte invece crediamo di donare il nostro cuore ma non facciamo altro che usare l'altra persona per riempire il vuoto che dovrebbe essere occupato dalla persona giusta. Crediamo di provare amore, quel sentimento così puro, ma non facciamo altro che usare gli altri per non sentirci soli.
Hi sorry it is me again! I remember you once made a post with shingeki fanfictions references. Can you make one for Haikyu too? Any pairing is fine thank you!
Hahaha no problem. These are the ones I liked. If anyone have any recs for me plz let me know
HAIKYUU!! FANFIC REC:
Sunshine Park Academy
The stories of the members of this adorable elementary school, their
demons, hardships and love life. Each focus on one pairing but all of
them are connected. All full of angst, fluff, friendship and family. All
have greaaaaaaat smuts too omg.The main 3 are:
The Odd Mix
(Iwaoi): Iwaizumi is the kindergarten teacher at SPA and he meets
rising actor Oikawa. Don’t be fooled. It looks like it’s gonna be cute
until you remember this is Iwaoi so the angst hits you full force. But
it’s worth it and theres a lot of fluff too.
(Daisuga): Daichi and Suga are both elementary teachers at SPA.
Daichi is stuck in a dying relationship but doesn’t have the guts to end
it. This one start right off explicit and honestly you will want to
punch Daichi 90% of the time. It gets better tho.
Types of Ink
(Bokuaka): Bokuto is the pre-school teacher in the SPA. he falls
hard in love at first sight with this mysterious barista and enters a
world of tattoos and yakuzas. This one is the most different out of the 3
fics. While in the first we get to see Iwa and Daichi fighting their
own demons, in Types of Ink we see Bokuto fighting Akaashi’s demons in
order to make him happy. Bokuto is the most pure character ever you don’t understand!! I dare you to read this and not fall in love with him. I DARE YOU!!!
A Split-Second of Violence
Laura of Maychoria: Beautiful story, extremely well written. No pairings, the story is about how someone hurts Hinata (giving him a concussion) and how everyone (specially Kageyama) deals with it. The focus it’s on the friendship between the characters and how they support eachother both physically and emotionally. The tears are all worth so be sure to try this one.
by hicsvntdracones: one
of the funniest one-shots in the Haikyuu!! fandom. The Seijoh team
plays Truth or Dare. That’s it. Cliche af and yet absolutely hilarious.
Food for the Heart This was actually the first haikyuu fanfiction I ever read and because I was new to the fandom I didn’t realise that it wasn’t kagehina until about half way through because I saw Tooru and the only name I knew in haikyuu was Tobio and I got them confused. (This is actually iwaoi…).
(please tell if if I’ve linked the wrong thing or anything)…
rules (pianist bo and accountant akaashi, this is unbelievably adorable i just can’t; it’s kinda slow build but the character development was rlyrly good holy shit, smut in later chapters, mainly FLUFF YUSSS) 💖🙌🏼🙆🏻
il mio ragazzo falso (akaashi needs a fake bf to help him to come out of the closet to his italian relatives)
quiet (a meiji era retelling of the fairytale< “the six swans”, slow build but rly rly amazing!! its like you get to learn so many new things about the meiji era??? and about the forests!!! its rly rly good gosh, smut near the end)💖🙆🏻🙌🏼
upstairs (nsfw towards the back, pining and slow build)
Non tutti sanno che il sorriso, oltre a significare felicità, può anche significare inganno, perché può diventare una maschera, e credimi, solo in pochi riescono a indossarla perché con il tempo diventa un peso enorme da portare avanti.
I’ve always wanted to do a fic rec but I
never knew when would be a good time. How many fics should I have read before
making a whole post with recs… I still haven’t found an answer to that, but a
friend of mine wanted recs so I thought I finally just DO IT! (The order is random.)
Let’s start the thing with my must reads bc honestly, those two fics mean the world to me):
is there a list of all the beautiful fics you've been recommended on here somewhere?
Ahh you know what I’m just going to give you all the ones I have written down in my drafts that I know I especially loved. All of them can be found on ao3 (sorry I don’t have links). The bolded are HIGHLY recommended!
