Hi, @tendous-satoris , I’m your rarepair exchange partner and this is my gift for you :D As a huge TenSemi fan, I couldn’t not choose this pairing (I also hinted at a bit of UshiOi, te-hee) and when I saw the Actors AU prompt…this not-so-little comic came out. I hope you like it!
-So it all starts when Oikawa casually brings up Iwaizumi’s glorious arms and biceps and fawns over them and passes pictures of them around during one of their Setter Squad meet ups.
-Then Suga retaliates by pointing out how thick and gorgeous Daichi’s thighs are. And “Who can resist that face? He’s an amazing leader and would be a great dad.”
-“Ohoho this is war!!”
-So they all start arguing over whos boyfriends are the best as husband material.
-Akaashi and Kenma argue that “Okay but Bokuto-san’s muscles and-” “Kuro’s abs-” “Plus Kuroo-san thighs are also really hot and-” “Bokuto’s ass…” “They’re both really kind and caring and funny (and idiotic) as well…” “Perfect Husband material…”
-Shirabu gets all salty and literally brings out a magazine pointing out how Ushijima has an amazing body and how his face is hot enough to be a model and “Wow look at him shirtless…” and “He’s 3rd best and beat Bokuto-san.” (Akaashi and Kenma let that one slide cuz okay that one is true.) “He’s really innocent that’s cute.”
-“Why do you keep magazines with Ushibaka in them…”-Oikawa
-Semi just kinda… “Tendou is… hot in his own way… and is… sweet?” *nervously sweats*
-“Iwa-chan is great with kids and knows how to cheer people up and helps anyone who needs it.”
-Kageyama who has been quiet all this time just calmly pulls out a picture of a smiling Hinata with a volleyball and the cuteness radiating from it is enough to get everybody blushing.
-“Hinata doesn’t have what you call the hottest body and to be honest I’m the seme but he is the cutest and everyone loves him. He can make you smile no matter what. Perfect waifu. I win.” He says with a smug face.
-“$5 from all of you please senpais. Thanks.”
-Oikawa flips the table.
-They get kicked out.
PLEASE APPRECIATE TENDOU SATORI.
this poor little red ribbon was bullied in elementary school. i just have this hc in my mind with poor kid tendou crying his eyes out in front of his parents after a volley practice because the other kids did not want him to play because they said he looked like a monster. he started playing volleyball because blocking one of his bullies’ spike made him feel good and he wanted to feel that same satisfaction over and over again, but you can clearly see from both the anime and the manga that even if he was good at it, he still struggled to make friends. teammates still talked behind his back.
that was so real. like, kids are adorable and all, but they can also be so mean. and really, being good at something doesn’t mean you’ll be 100% accepted.
i have this other hc in my head with tendou playing volleyball 24/7 after he got complimented by someone. and this other one with tendou seeing wakatoshi and thinking “wow” and despite being afraid of being rejected still tried to talk to wakatoshi. at first he thought it was just a one way conversation because waka’s not really looking at him as he’s talking, so tendou stops, but then after a second waka just goes, “and then?” and that’s like one of the most precious memories of tendou satori’s high school life. but enough of that, tendou’s such a bittersweet character, okay? he takes pride in his team, he 100% supports them, he compliments goshiki on his haircut AND WE CAN ALL GUESS WHY. and then afterlosing against karasunohe goes and says those words that broke us all. i think his “farewell my paradise” isn’t just about him quitting volleyball. it’s more than that, it’s volleyball played with his team, with shiratorizawa. JUST. JUST APPRECIATE TENDOU SATORI OKAY? HE MAY BE TALL AND HIS RED HAIR MAY LOOK FIERCE BUT THIS BOY NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED AT ALL COST. don’t let him quit volleyball furudate sensei. let him break more spikers’ hearts.
