the best club in the world :3

I understand that a lot of people enjoy writing shipfics where they transplant characters into a college setting. Since some writers may not be in college, or may have graduated a long time ago, I thought I’d offer a helpful list of realistic college meet not-so-cute scenarios. Forget baristas. This is where it’s at. 

- I’m really passionate about this cause and I will give you this flier if I have to shove it down your throat

- vicious battle over the only left handed desk in the room

- my roommate’s boyfriend is staying over so can I please sleep on your floor

- it’s pouring and my final paper is in my backpack so I guess we’re stuck under this tiny awning together. do you think they’d deliver pizza here

- hey I have to photograph someone for class will you be my model

- hey I have to take someone’s blood pressure for class will you be my victim

- variations of the above

- I know I keep coming to the cookie shop and for some reason it’s always your shift but don’t you dare judge me I need these for my sanity

- all our friends are drunk

- it’s 3 am and I’m still in the library studying for finals and I’m losing my grip on reality and I think I just saw a ghost

- we’re the only two people in this club. what is this club even for

- humans vs zombies (see you can still have your zombie AU, best of both worlds)

- we’re the only people who ever talk in discussions it’s awful

Roy Keane (Ex Manchester United) – “I was a big fan of Maradona growing up and of the current crop Ronaldo is good but Messi is the best I’ve ever seen. I don’t dish out praise lightly but Messi deserves it. I look for weaknesses in his game and I can’t find them.”

Raúl Gonzáles (Ex Real Madrid) – “The other day I saw one of his games. He was running with the ball at a hundred percent full speed, I don’t know how many touches he took, maybe five or six, but the ball was glued to his foot. It’s practically impossible!”

2014/2015 edition

Gianluigi Buffon - ‘’Messi is an alien, that dedicates himself to playing with humans.’’

Tata Martino - “He sees passes that most people can only see whilst watching the game on TV, not ones that you can normally see on the pitch.”

Carles Puyol - ‘’This Barca will be remembered as Messi’s Barca. He’s well above anything else I’ve ever seen. He’s an alien and better than four years ago because he reads the game better. He’s unstoppable’’

Raúl - ‘’I was lucky enough to play with Zidane, Ronaldo, Figo, Cristiano… but Messi is different; he makes everything look so easy, so effortless – even the impossible.’’

Henk Ten Cate - ‘’It’s too bizarre for words to see how good and consistent Messi has played. Of course he scored all these great goals, but in the end he has always served the team interests.  I can hardly imagine what’s coming for him next. At least he is so intelligent that he is also of tremendous value as a playmaker. You see in everything he does that he is not individualistic, and is happy when another score.’’

César Luis Menotti - ’What Messi does is terrifying. It’s indescribable magic. You can’t analyze it’’’

Gary Lineker - ‘’I never ever thought I would say that there was a better player than Maradona since he was in my time and I was in awe of him, but I honestly think for a number of reasons that Messi has surpassed him. He can do anything that Maradona did, and he does it more frequently and consistently.’’

Cerezo (president Atletico) - I’ve seen amazing players, but Messi is unique. Special. He’s a global player, he defines this sport’’

Alessandro Del Piero - ‘’Messi is the number one. He has talent, instinct, passion and magic. He is part of football heritage and we’re so lucky that he’s living in our time and that we can enjoy watching him.’’

Jamie Carragher - His achievements over the last decade have been so breathtaking that you could say he has outstripped those who have gone before — and it is quite possible we will never see them bettered

Graham Hunter - That’s how I like to think of it. It’s not Messi running toward a yawning goal net thinking “must score, must score.” It’s the entire history of football, the gods of football drawing him magnetically to the net with one refrain in their celestial minds: “This is the guy we invented football for … this is the man we want to dominate the history of goal scoring for all time.”

Juan Bernat - ‘’Messi is the best player in history. Anyone who understands football, even a little, thinks the same.’’

Mario Götze - ‘’He’s achieved so many great things and set the bar so high that practically nobody is ever going to reach it.’’

Javier Mascherano - ‘’I am too much ‘Messisist’ to compare his performances’’

Escribá (Elche coach) - ‘’ve never seen another player like Messi and I don’t think I ever will. It will be hard to imagine another player like him. I’ve seen Maradona and Cruyff play and Messi is better than both of them.’’

Angel di Maria - ‘’Having him as a rival is complicated. You see game after game that it is impossible to take the ball off him, impossible to stop him. There are no words to decribe his talent.’’

Diego Simeone - ‘’Messi alone is more dangerous than Real Madrid’s attacking trio Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale.’’

Franz Beckenbauer - ‘’We should not compare humans to God, but Messi is a godly player.’’

Paul Scholes - ‘’Let me tell you what it is like playing against Messi. You are up against a footballer who can take the ball either side of you, and you have no idea which side that might be from any hint about his body-shape. Unfortunately, there is also a third way that he might go past you – the worst of the lot – and that is through you, as Fernandinho and James Milner discovered to their cost.’’

Gary Lineker - ‘’Messi is indisputably the greatest player ever to don a pair of football boots. Don’t even attempt to argue the point.’’

Ashton’s so up Calum’s ass it literally gives me heart palpitations like he

Yuzuru Hanyu’s Mentality that Continues to Win.
–article by sports writer Toshimi Oriyama, from magazine ‘文藝春秋 2017年 02 月号’ (published in Jan 2017), translated by me.

(it’s a very long and good article)

Last year, in the figure skating Grand Prix Final (GPF) held in Marseille, France, Yuzuru Hanyu achieved a 4th consecutive victory, something that no one has done before. On the first day, his short programme (SP) was almost perfect and he was in 1st place, then 2 days later, for the free programme (FP), he made some mistakes. But he managed to escape the chase by younger skaters, Nathan Chen and Shoma Uno.

The 22 year-old, who is the Sochi Olympic gold medalist and who has since broken the world records a few times, thought back calmly about GPF 2016.
“As a goal, I am very proud of the 4th straight victory. But I am not satisfied with my performance. I am extremely 'kuyashii’ (frustrated/regretful) about the FP score which was in 3rd place. I did a good performance for SP and I thought if I did a fairly good one for FP, I could aim for world highest score; I need to review this point within myself.”

GPF is the high point of the first half of the season. It is a competition that shows the world’s best, similar to World Championship of the 2nd half. Hanyu’s 4th victory puts him on par with the 'emperor’ Evgeny Plushenko (Russia). However, for Hanyu, instead of the joy of victory, he felt more of the regret that he 'could not do a convincing performance’. And this ambition and hungriness is the mentality that is the source of Hanyu’s strength.

2010, Hanyu won the World Junior Championship, and the next season, he moved to the senior competitions. From that time, his supple and graceful performances already had a charm and the beauty of his jumps had a good reputation. Then, in 2011, in his hometown of Sendai, the Great East Japan Earthquake struck; that painful experience and recurring thoughts like “I think I will not be able to skate again” surely led him to grow as a person.

However, to possess that special mental strength to be able to stand at the highest point at the Olympics and to continue winning after that, there were 3 other turning points.
The presence of Patrick Chan (Canada) who was called 'the absolute champion’.
The 'kuyashii’ (regretful) gold medal at Sochi Olympics.
The accident at 2014 Cup of China.

Hanyu’s mental strength that could be seen in glimpses from the time of his debut, the 2013-2014 season added 'calmness’ and a 'spirit of study’ to that.
The year before, he had moved to the Cricket Club in Canada to train under Brian Orser and his abilities continued to blossom.
And there was a rival who was a big impetus for him. 3-time World champion Patrick Chan who also won GPF twice and was acknowledged to have the best skating skills in the world, plus huge battle strength on the big stage.

Hanyu faced Chan in 2 GP series competitions in 2013. The 1st one was Skate Canada where his score was lower than Chan’s by 27 points and the 2nd one was Trophee Eric Bompard where the gap was 32 points. He was 2nd place in both competitions and you could say it was a crushing defeat.

But these 2 straight losses caused Hanyu to change. Especially Chan’s clean performances at Trophee Eric Bompard that hit record scores for both SP and FP, “it was a trigger for me to look at my own abilities objectively”.
“I had nothing but respect and admiration for Patrick’s perfect performance. But at that competition, if both Patrick and I did perfect performances, I knew clearly how much of a gap there would be, and that made a big impact. At that time, I would have lost by about 5 points.”

No matter how perfectly he himself skated, there was a difference in the difficulty of jumps, the level of programme components and such; the reality was that if the opponent does not make mistakes, he (Hanyu) would lose. That was thrusted clearly at him in the form of results.
“To cover the gap between Patrick and me, there was a need to increase PCS. To do that, I had to relook at /improve my skating skills which is the foundation, and I had to be more aware of maintaining my expressive abilities during the run-through practice of the physically demanding programme. In addition, I had to get points for spins and steps, and higher GOE for jumps, I thought about all these things.”

Being conscious of the specific scores, having a strategy in the programme, he also came to have a deeper understanding of the meaning behind the practice that Coach Orser laid out for attaining high scores.

Also, he got a hint for his own growth from the words that Chan said.
During the press conference after the competition, sitting next to him, Chan was explaining in detail to the reporters how he was mindful about the way he used his body to express the music. Hanyu listened and “it was a good reference for my own performance”. After moving to Toronto, he had started learning English, so he probably understood the words between Chan and the reporter.

Hanyu at that time was only 19 (t/n. it was just before his 19th birthday). I have interviewed many athletes, not just figure skaters. But at press conferences of international competitions where foreign reporters overwhelm, even I feel that the nervousness is very pressurising. To turn that situation into a “learning area”, that 'spirit of desire’ deserves special mention.

When he received that impetus from Chan, at the same time there were words that made one feel the power of Hanyu’s inquiring mind. “Surrounded by reporters and being interviewed on-the-spot is useful,” he said.
“After a competition, media people surround me; in the exchange that I have with reporters, I can look back at my performance and talk about it right after I finish performing. I like to analyse my own performance, so it is very stimulating to have questions flying at me from various view points, and also, it enables me to think in a way that’s different from before. Interviews become a place for learning.”

Even veteran athletes find it hard to say something like this. It clearly shows his youth, and stemming from it, his frankness and inquiring mind.

The result of the impetus and learning points from Chan was seen quickly, at the GPF merely 3 weeks after the crushing defeat at Eric Bompard. Hanyu rewrote the world’s highest score for SP that was previously held by Chan, and his FP score was also his personal best. His total score was 13 points more than Chan and he won his first senior GPF.

Using the gold medal

Maintaining that energy/momentum was the key to the Olympic stage 2 months later.

His SP was a masterpiece and, for the 1st time in history, the score went above 100. He was in 1st place with 101.45. But for the FP, he fell at the 4S and 3F. He thought Chan who was 2nd after SP, would overtake him to be the winner. However, Chan also made mistakes and the result was that Hanyu won the gold medal.

“When I finished my performance, I thought the gold medal was not possible anymore. The failure of my FP made me realise the fearfulness of the Olympics, and I also felt the weight of the Olympics. I don’t know why but somehow my body could not move at all.”

The Olympic stage that’s once in 4 years. Participating for the first time and suddenly, he stood right at the top. Winning the first figure skating men’s gold medal for Japan, Hanyu decided immediately after that he would continue to evolve.

“In these next 4 years from now on, the pressure and the attention from the media and such, I think there will be a lot more of these extra things following me. In competitions, judges will not give me a higher evaluation just because I am an Olympic champion. How others see me does not matter. I myself must give a performance that’s worthy of a champion and really receive a gold medal evaluation. In this sense, I must make use of the position of 'Olympic Champion’. Because it is a chance for me to keep putting pressure on myself. Like telling myself, 'Oi, show us an Olympic champion-like performance! Hanyu Yuzuru, show some growth!’ (laughs)”

Then, the performance that left regrets on the Olympic stage, it became the will and desire to move forward to the next step. Thinking back, he said,
“For the FP at Sochi, if I had landed the quad salchow and done a no-miss performance, I would very likely be dragged by the Olympic champion result. Precisely because the Sochi gold medal was one that was carrying regretful thoughts, that’s why the present me exists. I got the Olympic gold medal at such a young age, and in addition, I received some problems to work on. As an athlete, this was really a lavish situation.”

A shocking collision

The season after Sochi, just as he said, he grew further, stepping his foot into unknown territory.
To prepare for the coming era of quads, he put a 4S and two 4Ts in his FP, and one of the 4T was in the 2nd half where more points would be given. To get used to this, he also put a 4T in the 2nd half of his SP. He spoke about the objective.
“It’s also preparation/groundwork for incorporating other kinds of quad jumps in future.”

However, his efforts met an unexpected setback at the 1st competition of the season, Cup of China (CoC). In the 6 minute warm-up before FP, there was an accident; he and Han Yan of China crashed into each other.
Blood could be seen dripping from Hanyu’s head (t/n. his chin) and there were screams from the audience. Coach Orser quickly called the doctors (t/n. U.S. team doctors came to help). After checking him, the doctors said there were no signs of concussion, but people around him told him not to skate.

However, Hanyu was stubborn. “I will skate.”

Orser reluctantly sent him into the rink, but of course, it was not the performance (that was planned). His whole body was battered and there was no strength, he fell a total of 5 times. What was pushing him on was his will power alone.
After this, he continued to compete until GPF, but the venture to make his performance one rank higher had to be shelved.

At the end of the year, due to intermittent abdominal pain, he went to the hospital for a checkup. He was found to have Urachal Remnant Disorder and underwent surgery. After that, he needed to rest and recover for one month. When he started to train again, he sprained his right ankle. Due to all this, he was 2nd in the World Championship that he was aiming for a 2nd straight victory. Even though he had a 2nd straight win at GPF, to him it was a year of stagnation.

After Worlds, he looked back on the season that was troubled by many accidents.
“The injuries and illnesses were hard on not only the body but on the mind/spirit as well. But even under those circumstances, I could at the very least leave some results; to me this experience was not not totally negative.
For the accident at CoC, there was insufficient attention on my part, so it triggered a re-looking at the way I entered into the competition, including the way I manage my body condition. And also, more than anything else, the way I was supported by my coaches and the people around me, it was a season where I felt it even more deeply than the Olympic season. All these experiences will be a plus in my competitive skating life, and also in my 2nd career after I retire.”

He also thought about the development of figure skating as a competitive sport. Based on his own accident, he said, “figure skating is a sport with an element of danger that can be a risk to life –that this is known to more people is a plus to the development of the sport.”  He also said he was happy that it gave rise to a tide of thoughts on what is necessary to prevent concussions and other life-threatening accidents.

No matter what 'minus’ elements there are, he transforms them into 'plus’, seizes them and looks ahead. As a reporter, this attitude of his amazes me from time to time.

Even when he is bleeding from his head, he is determined that he must go on with the competition; it was also due to the pride that comes because of achieving the title of Olympic champion (t/n. 'pride’ in the positive meaning). Hanyu very naturally has that on him.

The next season, 2015-2016, Hanyu once again challenged the programmes with a quad in the 2nd half.

In the 1st competition, Skate Canada, he was too conscious of the “quad in 2nd half” and made some unthinkable mistakes. As a result, he lost to Chan who had just returned from a year of rest.

However, it was different from before. Chan’s programme layout was lower in difficulty than his own, and he lost to Chan’s 'safe driving’ performance. It made him check/confirm if the direction and path that he was going was correct.
“Seeking even greater evolution is what is most like me.”

For his SP, in exchange for not having a quad in the 2nd half, he put 2 quads in the first half, 4S and 4T, making it even more difficult.
No matter what, he wants to challenge himself and this also raised his concentration power.  At the next competition, he scored 322.40, the first above-300 points in history. And then at GPF, he broke his own records with 330.43. With difficult programmes and clean performances back-to-back, it was a stunning victory over rivals Chan and Fernandez.

Storming through the 300-mark which no one has even touched before, Hanyu’s mental aspect has also reached that high level which normal people cannot comprehend.

“At Sochi Olympics, my free skate performance failed. When I finished, I thought 'the gold medal is gone’. And at that moment, I realised, 'ah, so I was conscious of the gold medal and I was nervous’. This time, that experience at Sochi was put to good use. Before entering the venue, I was aware that I was thinking 'I want to surpass 300 points’. So first, I acknowledged that I am thinking about that and putting pressure on myself, and then, 'if so, I have to do this’ and I think I controlled well my mental state.”

In a situation of being closely chased, the strength to look at himself calmly brought forth a spectacular feat.

For the 2016-2017 season, he decided on new challenges, having a quad loop in both SP and FP and a layout that’s more difficult. When 2016 started, the pain in his left foot (t/n. lisfranc injury) became worse, and after Worlds, even walking was not allowed and this restriction period continued for one and a half months. But in spite of that, he still aimed for further evolution.

Connection with the audience

But it was also an inevitable decision. The previous season, Boyang Jin (China) had 3 types of quads, including the most difficult (of the quads jumped til now) quad lutz, and 6 quads in total for SP and FP and he was 3rd in Worlds. Then Shoma Uno did the world’s 1st quad flip in the Team Challenge Cup in April.

Hanyu himself opened up the frontier of 300 points. Rising young skaters have quads as weapons to challenge him. And it’s not just about having quads, it is about the number of quads and how well they are done; this era of competition has come.

This season, in addition to jumps and layout, Hanyu is widening his range of expression. This can be said as his real value/ ability.

His SP is Prince’s 'Let’s Go Crazy’. It’s rock music that brings to mind his Sochi Olympics SP 'Parisienne Walkways’. FP is 'Hope and Legacy’ which is a combination of 2 pieces of piano music from Joe Hisaishi that Hanyu likes very much. They are 2 contrasting types of music. SP is an uptempo music that Hanyu is very good at; FP piano music has a rhythm and sounds that are harder to grasp for jump timing.
Having 2 completely opposite types of music was for raising his own expressive abilities. At GP Final which he won for the 4th consecutive time, he spoke of being aware of a 'connection with the audience’.

“This season’s SP, I am performing it like a rock star having a live concert, so it’s a programme that is not possible without the audience. In France (GPF), the audience also became very excited and it was very fun. Then for the FP, I could perform while feeling the music with my whole body. It’s different from the SP, it’s not a programme where the audience becomes more and more excited and clap and go WA!!! But during the performance, I could feel the gaze of the audience, and when I did my jumps, I could see there were people praying for me. I connected with the audience, in other words, our feelings became one, and I felt this happiness.”

Something that is in the beat and the meaning of the lyrics of Prince; abandoning yourself to the piano music of Joe Hisaishi and feeling the wind, the trees, the air and other things of nature. Sharing with the audience the world that you express through skating, wanting to create a programme that’s like having a conversation with the audience – that is one of the complete forms of figure skating which is sports and also art.

From TV and books etc, Hanyu studies the ways of thinking of athletes from other sports and reflects them in skating. He often says that this is his weapon. Recently, gymnast Kohei Uchimura who won a consecutive victory at Rio Olympics said, “I had to win, it was good.” Words in which you could feel the heavy pressure on someone who stood at the top, those words left a deep impression on him. Without being imprisoned by existing boundaries, he wants to pursue figure skating further and further, this is his thinking.

“Receiving the programmes from the choreographer, integrating jumps into it and performing it, that is my job/work. When all the jumps are completed beautifully, then it can be called a real performance. That is why I am so regretful (kuyashii); while adding in a new quad and doing a layout that’s more difficult than last season, I am still not able to make a new personal best score this season. If I speak my true feelings, I want to raise my scores and become the Yuzuru Hanyu that no one can catch.”

For his own growth, for figure skating as a sport, his desire/greed never fades, and this is his true strength as a skater. And it can also be said that this is why he makes us feel that for him there are infinite possibilities.

Love Letter from: Takashi Morinozuka

[Tamaki Suoh]  [Kyoya Ootori]  [Kaoru Hitachiin] [Haruhi Fujioka]   [Hikaru Hitachiin]  [Kasanoda Ritsu]

Dear ____,

At the moment I am surrounded by piles of crumpled paper on either side. The light from my desk is only able to hit a few certain places because of the mountains of discard papers. Each one was a draft of the letter you read now. I tried so many times to start it off, to tell you all that I wanted to, but, nothing seemed right. The more I tried to put the thoughts in my head into words, the more I become disappointed with the result. Nothing I write seems right. My words fail me, which I’m sure doesn’t see all that surprising, considering how little I seem to use them in everyday life. I will keep trying though, I will always keep trying, always keep fighting, for you.

How I ever ended up with someone like you by my side, I will never know. You are so beautiful, and it makes my chest ache that you don’t see it. Your smile is brighter than the summer sun, and the warmth that blooms in my chest from seeing it is even warmer. I always want to see you happy. When you cry, each tear is like a little knife, slicing away at my heart. I wish I could always be at your side to wrap you in my arms when that happens, to warm your heart again, to chase whatever demon made its way within your mind and put those thoughts in your head.

I want so bad to protect you. I want to know you are safe. Every muscle in my body screams at me when I see you in distress. I want to grab you and place you behind me, facing the problem instead of you. None of that is logical. You make me into the frightening monster I fear so many see me as. I suppose I truly am the “wild’ type around you ____. I know you though, and I know in many ways, you are more of a fighter than I will ever be. You have faced more enemies than I ever will, but if you ever need help, know that I will be at your side as fast as I can.

I suppose I’ve never told you how I love the feeling of your hand in mine. Or how happy it makes me to hear you laugh when you are around me. I love feeling you in my arms, and I love feeling your arms around me more than that. I love your lips against mine even more though. My heart tightens at the thought, and just the memory makes my brain a little fuzzy. For me, it, you, are unlike anything else in this world, and I can only hope that you feel the same.

When I think of the memories we’ve shared one sticks out in my mind. I remember looking out at the crowd, the lights bright overhead. Though the gym wasn’t loud since it was only a practice match, it held the same feeling as any tournament.  The bleachers were still packed full, families and friends coming to cheer on those that they loved. I remember placing the final hit on my opponent, but above all of that, I remember one thing. I remember finding you cheering face in the crowd. I don’t think I will ever be able to forget it, and I never want to.

I know vividly well that I’m not the best at expressing my feelings. Strangely, especially around you. I get so nervous around you, worried that I’ll accidentally hurt you, or that I’ll scare you. That I’ll bore you. You are so beautiful, so much more than I could ever ask for. I love you. I love you ____. I want to be by your side for a long time, and I hope you feel the same way. You are one of my best friends, someone who I feel I could share every secret with. Someone who I want to know every piece of, and someone who I want to know every piece of me.

I love you. You are the steady ground beneath my feet when the rest of the world is an earthquake. I love you.

Forever yours, or as long as you will have me,

Takashi Morinozuka

•Boring Daddy• Neymar

A/n: Shoutout to Riley Curry and her daddy Steph Curry this is modeled after her press conference crashes during last seasons NBA championships lol this is coming extra late but I hope this is close to what was asked for–oh we’re gonna pretend Davi is 5(he actually turned 4 in August) just so this flows correctly, cool? Cool. moving right along…

.

.

.

.

The celebratory screams and cheers that filled Berlin’s Olympiastadion were deafening. Every Culé was currently losing their minds–and with good reason.

Barça just defeated Juventus 3-1,  winning the 2014-15 Champions League title. It was the first time since 2011 the Blaugrana would be lifting the trophy. it was all so surreal; for the fans, the players, the entire organization—but especially for a certain 23 year old Brazilian.

Neymar was overwhelmed but in the best way. How could he not be? He went from a trophy-less, lukewarm at best first season–and a horrific World Cup experience shortly after–to spectacular second, where he was a vital part of his club winning not one but three trophies. This was probably the biggest achievement in his career so far He was ecstatic. Nothing could bring him down.

Once the champions were officially crowned and the official photos were taken, personal ones with one another and love ones began. The pure happiness and joy  In the midst of all the excitement and slight chaos–Neymar spotted his beautiful girlfriend, Y/n as she made her way towards him.

He smiled as they locked eyes, watching the smile that was already on her face grow beautifully. She had their three year old daughter, Roseli, securely on her hip and  Davi held her hand. If it was possible, Neymar’s smile grew. He always was in awe of the relationship Davi and Y/n shared.

From the moment they were introduced,Y/n treated the young boy like her own. In her eyes, he was an extension of the man she loved so how could she do anything but fall in love with him too? Even when Roseli came along Y/n made it a point that Davi knew he still had and would always have a special place in her heart. Her love for him was unconditional. Neymar felt the  most indescribable type of joy as his little family joined him in this amazing moment.

Parabens, Juninho. congratulations, I’m so proud of you.” Y/n  said with a kiss when she was finally standing in front him. Neymar grinned, enveloping her in his arms as he returned the kiss. Their moment quickly came and went as the kids almost immediately stole away his attention. “Parabens, Daddy!”they shouted happily. Davi clung on to his legs while Roseli all but leaped from her mother’s arms into his.

Neymar laughed; celebrating this with them was gift and knowing his parents, sister, friends, and Davi’s mom were in the stands was the icing on an already flawless cake. Even when he was told he was expected at the post match press conference–something he was usually less than ecstatic about– Neymar complied with the biggest smile on his face. How could he be anything but happy?

When Neymar finally made it into the conference room a little while later, long after the celebrations had come to close.  He had changed into a 2014-15 championship shirt, some jeans and some nikes. Neymar walked into the conference  room. with a table with a mic on it upfront facing a whole bunch of reporters sitting who had their mics, and recorders ready as photographers took pictures. He sat down at his place and adjusted the mic on the table. Before he knew it the press conference started questions official began. There were congratulations, praise, inquiries of the future and of course mentions of the past.

Neymar had to consciously stop himself from grimacing when some of the reporters continuously found ways to bring up his disastrous World Cup experience experience. He objectively he understood why it was tied in—especially with Copa America just around the corner–but it didn’t make them any less annoying. He not so subliminally shut down all talks of it with mentioning lessons were to be learned from the past but it’s hard to if you continue to relive it. After that the focus of the questions were about this moment, and hopefully a successful Copa America. And he was grateful.

He was in the middle of answering a question about rebuilding Brazil’s national squad when Roseli suddenly ran into the room, disrupting not only his train of thought but the reporters focus as well.  

Flashes from cameras taking pictures came more  frequently at the sight of the little girl in her new 2015/16 Barça kit and a 100% Jesus headband not unlike her father’s. Neymar raised an eyebrow in surprise; he didn’t bring his kids along to press conferences for a reason. the atmosphere was anything but exciting, and would most certainly spell out for disaster for his restless offspring. the young girl wasn’t deterred by him or the commotion she stared. she only cared about one thing.

“Daddy! Up!” she demanded arms raised for emphasis, earning chuckles all around the room. Neymar gladly complying with her order as he placed her in his lap. He than turned his attention back to the media in front of him, starting to answer the question only to be interrupted by Roseli  tugging at his shirt.

“Yes princesa?”he smiled down at her. If there was one thing he knew it was when his daughter was competing for his attention. He knew it was best to give in a little so she wouldn’t hijack the entire presser. It was cute in some instances but he was trying to do his job and not waste the time of reporters trying to theirs.

Beijo"Roseli puckered her lips expectantly.

Neymar chuckled giving her a kiss before saying,“você tem que ficar quieto agora.” Roseli nodded her head with her index finger to her lips in a motion to be quiet. Neymar  smiled, putting his finger to his lips as well, hoping she would behave.


“She’s so cute,” a reporter spoke up earning a murmur of agreement throughout the room. There was no doubt the little girl was absolutely adorable so much so nobody seemed to mind the distraction she caused.

“Thank you,” Neymar smiled appreciatively before lightly adding,”she gets it from her mother.”

“Thank you!"Roseli chimed in, craning her neck so she could speak into the mic. The whole room got a chuckle out of the young girl’s antics as Neymar casually moving the mic out of her reach.”Não faça isso. don’t do that,”He gently reprimanded her.

“Daddy I’m cute!” the little girl said cheerfully, ignoring her father’s words. “Roseli,“he cut her a disapproving look, not taking light to being ignored,”Fique quieto, be quiet.”

Okayyy.” she said with an exaggerated sigh as she slouched in his lap. Neymar shook his head with in slight amusement than signaled for the questions to continue. Roseli remained quiet a whole two minutes before letting out another sigh and placing a small hand over Neymar’s mouth,“quieto Daddy.”

You would’ve thought Neymar was droning on and on about nothing the way she said it.–then again that was probably exactly what she thought he was doing. Either way he couldn’t help but smile as the whole room burst into laughter.

“you want me to be quiet?” He couldnt help but smile; Roseli nodded vigorously causing her curls flying all over her face which only amused Neymar even more.

“Daddy has to talk a little to more then I’ll be quiet okay?”he tried to compromise with her that way he could finish up and then they could leave. “boringgg.” Roseli sighed dramatically as she plopped her head onto the table. “Roseli Natália.” Neymar warned.

Okay Daddy.” she  pouted.

And for the rest of the conference Roseli was quiet but no less distracting. She fidgeted, patted his hands, pinched his cheeks and ran her small hands in his hair. Neymar couldnt even be upset with her, one because she was just a little girl, staying still wasnt a skill she mastered just yet and two he loved having his baby girl with him despite her craziness.

“And that’s all for Neymar,”One of the team representatives finally announced the end of the presser.  He sighed in relief as he pushed his chair back and stood with his daughter in his arms. Once he got out of the conference room, he was met with a frantic Y/n.

“Oh my God, Ney, I’m so sorry!“ She immediately apologized, "One minute she was playing with Rafa and the next she she bolting for the conference room. She slipped in before I could catch her.” Y/n explained before turning a scolding gaze towards her daughter,”Roseli Natalia I can’t believe you—”

“Baby,”Neymar cut in as he pulled her into him with his free arm, “it’s fine.”

“Are you sure, Ney because–?” Y/n started again, not completely  convinced. Neymar cut her off again, but this time with a kiss, “It’s fine babe, everything was okay. even though this one tried to make it all about her,”He paused briefly to blow a raspberry on Roseli’s neck making her to giggle, “nothing was ruined. if anything she made the whole thing more enjoyable— for everyone in there.”

“Okay…”Y/n nodded reluctantly before turning her gaze to their daughter, “this is the last time you do something like that, understood?”Y/n asked her daughter. “Yes, Mommy.”Roseli nodded.

“Good…well,”Y/n said as her sternness gave way to playful smile, “ did you have fun?”

Roseli scrunched up her face, “No! Daddy’s soo boring!”

Her parents and everyone within earshot laughed at the young girls revelation which in turn  caused her to frown. She didn’t understand what was so funny–she was serious.

Prefectural High School - Senyuu Soccer Club!

Alba: BIG TROUBLEEEE!!!
Hey! I’m Alba, a second year student who goes to Prefectural Senyuu Corporation DWANGO High School! I’m currently the captain of the soccer team! Parentheses: the world, ages, and various other factors are different from and independent of the original story in the setting of this drama CD. End parentheses! Wait, this isn’t the time to be giving a leisurely introduction! I can’t lose even one second in getting to the club room! Why am I running so frantically, you ask? That’s because… We’re in big troubleeeee!!!
sfx: CRASH
Ros: Oh, Prez.
The one who reacted just now was me, Ros. I’m in the same year and same soccer club as Prez here, as the soccer club’s treasurer.
Crea: Yo, Alba-kun!
The one who made a greeting just now was me, Crea! I’m also in second year and a soccer club member!
Alba: Who are you two explaining to!? Er, well, I mean I was doing that a second ago too, but more importantly…!
The soccer club is going to be abolished!!!
Ros: Wha-!?
YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Alba: WHY!?

Part 1 - The Abolishment of the Soccer Club!

Alba: WHY ARE YOU SO HAPPY ABOUT IT!? Abolished! The club’s going to be abolished, you know! There won’t be a soccer club anymore!
Ros: Prez, I…
I don’t even like soccer that much!
Alba: WHY DID YOU JOIN THE SOCCER CLUB!?
Ros: Our high school requires us to join a club, right? That’s why I had no choice. Besides, we never did activities or anything, so I thought I could just relax.
Alba: You… No wonder I never saw you putting much effort in practice…
Ros: Much? Heh, you’re wrong there. I never put any effort in at all!
Alba: WHY DO YOU LOOK SO PROUD!?
Crea: Alba-kun! What’s abolishment? Does that mean we can’t play soccer anymore!?
Alba: Ugh… That’s right, Crea-kun!
Crea: Not even in PE class!?
Alba: Uh, no, I guess we can still play in PE class.
Crea: Oh what, that’s fine then~ Just let it be abolished~
Alba: WHY!? Why is PE class’s soccer being valued more than the club’s!?
Ros: If it’s the school itself taking official measures to abolish the club, we won’t be forced to participate in club activities for a while. We can finally freely enjoy our after-school life!
Crea: Seriously!? Let’s go to the arcade!
Alba: STOOOOP IIIT! Stop being so excited about the club being abolished! Let’s try and keep it from happening, okay!?
Ros: But~ Abolishment’s already been decided, right~?
Alba: Don’t say it so cheerfully! It hasn’t been decided yet!
Ros: Wha-
WHAT!?
Crea: Arcaaade…
Alba: It’s going to start soon. The high school soccer tournament. If we produce results then, we’d be able to reverse the decision.
Ros: Results?
Alba: I don’t know the specifics of the situation yet though…
Ros: Well, there’s no way we’ll ever produce good results in an official game, so it’s fine, isn’t it?
Crea: YEAH! Let’s go to the arcade!
Alba: What’s with you!? Let’s at least try and keep the club going, okay!? Help me out here!
Ros: On the other hand, why are you so desperate to keep the club going? Even if your reasons’s ‘because I like soccer’, it’s not like our senpais did anything spectacular for us, right? We don’t have any reasons or traditions to protect the club so desperately.
Crea: Let’s go to the arcade~!
Alba: …Most of the students in our high school graduated from the second or third ranked middle schools, right? So even if you’ve just entered high school, you’d know a lot of faces, and you’d probably be able to find a group to join right away…
Ros: …?
Alba: Since I… moved here right when I started high school, I wasn’t really used to it… And I didn’t have any friends at all either. So during breaks, I’d spend my time in the classroom by myself… reading a book and stuff.
At that time, Ros, you and Crea started talking to me. At first, it was just trivial conversations like 'what are you reading’ and such, but we started talking more and more… And eventually, when you guys invited me and said 'let’s join the soccer club together’… I was really happy.
Ros:
Alba: That’s why I don’t want the club to be abolished! I want to play soccer with you both!
Ros: Hah… Suddenly breaking out a shamefully embarrassing sob story like that is annoying, you know.
Alba: Wha-!?
Ros: Now that you mention it, the reason I started talking to you was because you were reading a manga that I was interested in.
Alba: Yeah, when you came up to me all of a sudden and said “That looks interesting, let me borrow it”, I was scared and thought you were intimidating me…
Ros: It was intimidation.
Alba: EH!? What happened to my beautiful memory of youth!?
Ros: It was an interesting manga, wasn’t it?
Alba: Y-Yeah, it’s my favorite manga even now.
Ros: I think… it was a story of a pitifully weak soccer club aiming to win at nationals, wasn’t it?
…Well then, I understand, Prez.
Alba: …!
Ros: Let’s stop the club from being abolished.
Alba: Ros! Thanks, Ros! We’ll try our best!
Crea: Alba-kun, don’t forget I’m here too!
Alba: Crea-kun! Of course not! We’ll do it all together!
Crea: Yeah! Let’s do 2-player mode and get the high score!
Alba: Huh? You were talking about the arcade!?
Crea: Of course I was talking about the arcade!
Alba: C-Crea-kun, were you listening to me just now? I wasn’t talking about the arcade…
Crea: Listening? Of course I wasn’t!
Alba: Completely unapologetic!! Look, just now I was talking about the three of us trying to keep the soccer club going, okay!?
Crea: Keeping the club going? What does that have to do with the arcade?
Alba: I WASN’T TALKING ABOUT THE ARCADE *cough* SOMEONE HELP ME!
Ros: It’s no good, Prez, he’s too excited about going to the arcade and won’t process any other kind of information. I call it: Super ArCrea Mode!
Crea: Ar-Arcade!
Ros: See, that’s his cry.
Alba: Animal level?! I-In any case, the three of us will try to keep the club alive! To keep the club alive, we’ll produce results at the official tournament!
Ros: By the way, Prez, do you know why the club is being abolished?
Alba: Huh? Isn’t it because we’re super weak?
Ros: No, that’s not it. It’s because we only have three members.
Alba: AH!
