those two are so in love with each other

anonymous asked:

All of sakuras effort and love was so pointless.She loves sasuke for years,is always loyal and waiting,took literally every step in their relationship,just to get knocked up and stuck alone raising a kid.I don't get how sakura can be happy,he left her,no reason can fix all those years He was gone.And this "important mission" was only important for the boruto plot line.And then he refuses to kiss her when the last time they saw each other was years ago,I can see how much he loves her.

Okay, I really can’t be bothered to be nice about this.

“All of Sakura’s effort and love was so pointless”

No it wasn’t, it healed him of his loneliness and ensured that no matter where he maybe and what others may think of him, he’d always have a home to come back to where two people love him very much:

But good job in starting the ask with such a generically ignorant comment.

“Took literally every step in their relationship”

In terms of their actual relationship, you don’t know who took which step because they progressed off panel, so please don’t pull things out of your ass.

“Just to get knocked up and stuck alone raising a kid”

That’s like saying Minato and Kushina spent all that time loving each other and preparing to be a family together, just so that they could immediately die and leave Naruto to grow up alone. The stupidity of this comment completely ignores the circumstances of how the situation came to be. Sarada also wasn’t just some random “kid” that Sakura was “stuck” with no alternative to raise. I like how you choose to word it in such a way as to make the scenario seem as dire as possible. It’s not going to work.

“I don’t get how Sakura can be happy”

Because unlike you and many others who share similarly one dimensional thoughts, she actually understands Sasuke and knows that he is gone for their sake, she knows how much he cares for the both of them, and she knows that despite his absence, their hearts remained connected:

It’s not hard. Sakura knows that Sasuke is away because he has to be, not because he wants to be.

“He left her, no reason can fix all those years he was gone”

Sasuke’s not looking for a reason to “fix” his mistake. He acknowledges it and apologised for it. He just hoped that Sarada would at least understand why he did what he did, because he knew that Sakura was already aware.

“And this “important mission” was only important for the Boruto plot line”

What on earth does this prove? That’s like saying how Obito was only the person who caused the most shit in the entire series because of the Naruto plot line, or how Hashirama was only considered the “God of Shinobi” because of the Naruto plot line. It’s just like, what’s your point?

“And then he refuses to kiss her when the last time they saw each other was years ago, I can see how much he loves her”

Seeing as how that was a sarcastic comment, you clearly don’t see the love that’s between them.

  • But Sakura does:
  • Sarada does:
  • Naruto and Chouchou do:
  • And Karin does as well:

It’s funny how a child like Chouchou who just barely met Sasuke and learned of their family situation, was able to gain a batter understanding of who Sasuke was, then someone like you who has supposedly known him for far longer, but still doesn’t have the faintest understanding of his character.

ALSO when Ed and Oswald were talking about Oswald loving Ed and all that in the cells Ed kept saying he DIDN’T love Oswald, not that he DOESN’T. Those are two very different tenses, so…!

headcanons about the *blessed ot4* please? (Mari/Adrien/Nino/Alya)

  • nino and mari are like the deadpanned fatalistic members of the group
    • nino: dudes we’ve been studying for this test for like fifty years death is staring me in the face
    • mari: if we die like right now tho, we won’t have to take the test
    • nino: omg tru 
    • adrien: …….so can you two like, i dunno, love yourselves please?
  • nino makes a group snapchat for the four of them because he thought it’d be cute, but adrien and alya started spamming it when they turned it into a continuous ugly selfie contest that’s been going 27 days strong. mari and nino just leave it alone and snap each other directly. 
  • not only are mari and alya synced up, but adrien and nino become those mom friends that bring junk food, pain killers, and extra tampons to school in case the girls need it
  • adrien somehow has the numbers of nino’s, alya’s, and marinette’s parents and vice versa and adrien won’t tell how he got them
    • whenever one of them is out past curfew, they’ll always get a call from adrien being like “hey so your mom called me and she wants you home right away.”
    • adrien casually texts marinette’s mom often bc she’s always asking him how he is and if he’s eating. adrien doesn’t mind bc it’s nice to have a mom worry over him. 
  • marinette has sketched out schematics for how to sneak past the agreste mansion’s security, scale the side of adrien’s home, and break him out of his room for “friend time.” she’s dead serious about it too. 
  • there was one time adrien invited everyone over to his house so they could “work on a class project.” but he hid them in his closet until his father and nathalie went to sleep so that they could sleep over at his house without anyone knowing
    • they had to keep the noise down and ninja into the kitchen whenever they wanted snacks, but adrien was the only one with a bed big enough for all four of them and alya wanted to have a go on his rock climbing wall 
  • adrien and marinette are notorious for physically crying over cute animal photos/videos, so sometimes, to screw with them, alya and nino will spam them with links during class and laugh at them these two start sobbing into their notes in the middle of a geography lesson

But as the years go on, rivalry and hatred begin to develop into something very different and Yuuri doesn’t seem to be able to stay away, no matter how hard he tries. Hatred and love are two sides of the same coin and even though everything changes, some things are still meant to be. Oh, man, do these boys not communicate their feelings! Seriously one of the best fics I have ever read in ANY fandom. Love this fic so much.

starstruck by shizuoh, Teen, 58k
(in which yuuri is a simple barista, viktor is a famous movie star, and yuri is an 8 year old kid stuck in the middle of it.) SO good!

Very angsty!

Victor doesn’t exactly have an answer to that question. I love this so much??? Amazing fic!

Such a good one shot!

Dancing Daffodils by grayclouds, Mature, 51k (WIP)
“As Love gently wipes away the tears that trail down his cheeks something within Victor quakes, its tremors resonating throughout his entire being like a deafening echo. He is in the arms of a god.” BIG THUMBS UP!

1. They have unrealistic expectations for romance.
2. They mark their calendars with the dates of his newest book releases and the premieres of his latest movie adaptations.

fire on ice by indianchai, Teen, 15k (WIP)
Everyone in the world had some sort of affinity with one of the four elements; the proper term was elemental affinity– whether they were best suited with fire, water, earth, or air.All figure skaters were water users. Never in the history of the sport was there professional ice skater that didn’t have water as their elemental affinity. Katsuki Yuri had a well-guarded secret that he can’t have anyone find out about.

Riku literally has NO CHILL when it comes to his best friend.

KH1 Riku: Oh, Sora found new friends? Fine, I’m gonna go sulk in darkness for the next few months.

COM Riku: Sora, I’ve finally learned how to handle my dark side - oh, he’s sleeping. Better go on a dangerous journey that could potentially cause darkness to take over me again just for the slightest chance of waking him up.

KH2 Riku: I’m too ashamed for you to see me like this, Sora, but I’m still going to casually stalk you and be helpful. Also, I’d be cool with spending the rest of my life on a beach in the World Between as long as it’s with you.

Coded Riku: I’m not even the real Riku and you’re not even the real Sora, but I feel very concerned about your well-being for some reason. For a journal, I seem to have an awful lot of real emotions. Weird.

358/2 Days Riku: I’m sorry that I’m being a bit of a jerk, Roxas, but Sora can’t wake up if you’re still around. You understand, right?

BBS Riku: I want to be strong so I can protect the people I care about. Sora. I’m talking about Sora.

DDD Riku: So, those two people love each other? I’m going to make blatantly obvious parallels to Sora and I. Dearly Beloved is the combined song of our souls. Sora is in trouble, I’m going to JUMP INTO HIS HEART AND SAVE HIM NO MATTER WHAT THE PERSONAL COST.

tHE NEW CRYSTAL TALE

sorry I was so late for this cause up until now i still don’t know who’d take Navy’s place for the next perilette & paper lazuli ‘episode’ HALP

Owen reaching out his hand? That wasn’t just him needing comfort. That was Omelia beginning to heal. That was him letting her be his rock. That was him allowing himself to be vulnerable again with her, to stop fighting it. There’s still work to be done, but Omelia will survive. I feel it in my bones.

True love isn’t about having butterflies. It isn’t about the flirting, the kissing, the sex, the lust. Love is so much more, and yet, so much simpler. It is dressed with new experiences, laughter, light, poetry, music, adventure. Tears and smiles and whole-hearted embraces. But love? It can be none of those things on their own. It is bound by unconditional respect and caring. Love is forgiveness and your open arms. It is acceptance; it is a binding of lost souls. In its truest form, it is two open hearts with a home within each other.

Thank you Ishida, thank you God for TGRE 125

There are honestly more hate than I expected and I’m sorta disappointed? Cuz I mean I understand that there are people who has other ships, but Touken shippers who are hating this chapter saying that it’s too much and it doesn’t have anything to do with the plot?

Firstly, maybe it is too much and I am just a pervert but I think it is beautiful to see one of my OTPs making love. I have always wanted to my see ships and OTPs showing how much they love each other in canoned chapters and in my opinion Ishida did this without making it look like a hentai/smut chapter. Why? Because we’ll, for one he didn’t really show graphics (dicks etc) also it wasn’t just blush blush kiss kiss fuck fuck there was meaning and a story to it. Which leads me to my second point.

I’ve seen a few posts saying this already but I’ll say it again. This chapter HAD meaning, and it DID have something to do with the plot and the story. Kaneki has been so lonely especially since Hide disappeared. Now Touka is there with him and for him and loving him and he is not alone anymore. Yes that doesn’t mean that they have to have sex to show this but those two loved each other since part 1. Even when Kaneki lost his memories and became Haise he still had feelings for her.

My point is… this is Ishida Sui we are talking about and every chapter he writes always have meaning. I think we should all just except this chapter, we don’t have to like it but just except it. Because this is part of the story and Ishida probably has a reason for doing this not just because of fan service.

10 Things Your Friends Wish You Knew

1. Your time is the best gift you can give. – In your relationships with others, nothing you can give is more appreciated than your sincere, focused attention. So don’t listen with an agenda or the intent to reply. Hear what is being said with the intent to truly understand.

2. You have the power to make a big difference. – Everyone in life wants to be loved and accepted. Your greatest achievements in life will be the direct result of finding this love and acceptance within yourself, and radiating it out to those around you.

3. What makes us different is what makes us special. – Don’t be too quick to judge others or bully them for being different. And don’t put up with those who call you “a friend” and then judge and bully you. Let go of the need to prove yourself to everyone else, and you’ll free yourself to accomplish what matters most to you.

4. Love is meant to be shared. – So many people save their ‘loving.’ They consciously avoid putting their heart into their relationships, surrendering, opening up, and sharing, because they want to save it all for the right people (best friends, lovers, etc.) But the problem is when the right people come along they don’t realize it, they don’t know how to open up, and they don’t know anything about the act of loving.

5. You have to love yourself too. – The best thing you can do to improve the quality of your relationships is to work on loving and healing yourself.

6. Praise and recognition matters. – Give genuine praise. This is an investment in them that doesn’t cost you a thing, and the returns can be amazing. Be sure to follow this rule: “Praise in public, penalize in private.”

7. Small gestures of kindness go a long way. – It seems like such a small thing, but in our busy lives we often forget that a kind word, a helping hand, or just a smile and a quick “thank you” can create a bright spot in another person’s life.

8. Without honesty there is no friendship. – Honesty is the first chapter in the book of all wisdom. Honesty is the only path forward. It’s always better to tell people the truth up front. So don’t play games with people’s heads and hearts. Telling the truth and making someone cry is better than telling a lie and making someone smile.

9. Loyalty means the world. – True love and real friendship aren’t about being inseparable. These relationships are about two people being true to each other even when they are separated. When it comes to relationships, remaining faithful is never an option, but an obligation.

10. Reaching out and staying in touch is important. – Stay in touch with those who matter to you because they’re worth the extra effort. Remember, you don’t need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends you can be certain of. Paying attention to these people is always a priority.

listen i wanna see hunk and shay in a long distance relationship pls im beggin

  • What if hunk makes a communicator for her so she can talk to him whenever she wants and vice versa?
    • Shay sends mostly texts because he knows Hunk can be in a battle somewhere or on a mission so she knows that Hunk won’t respond right away and he can read those texts when he’s out of danger
      • Her texts are all lowercase with several exclamation points because she’s incredibly happy and bright! She also tries to use emojis but when she DOES look through them most of them are earth stuff and she asks about them
      • Shay: hunk, do you know what this is ???

      • They talk about stuff that’s happened in their lives! Fighting, ceremonies, etc.
        • Hunk loves talking about maths and engineering and earth and food, and Shay loves learning about new things! Since her people have been freed from the Galra, she’s been learning about the Balmeran culture and history, and she LOVES to talk about her going on adventures and exploring the surface of the Balmera
        • She high-key loves it when Hunk rambles on and on about maths because she loves learning and she loves Hunk and Hunk explains things so simply and passionately and she thinks it’s so CUTE
      • They can talk for literally hours on end
      • Shiro: *knocking on the door politely* Hunk, you’ve been talking to Shay for like 3 quintants. Please go to sleep.

Pairing: Archie x Reader

Description: Veronica has become invested in (Y/N)’s story, and so she seeks out those who knew her.

Warnings: none

Word count: 1,437

Tag list: @isis278 @lost-in-wonderland-x @spam-to-follow@thatspidernamedmeagan @isabellarose5150

A/N: I have been having so much fun writing this series, hope you guys enjoy this part!


“(Y/N)” was the only word that came out of Veronica’s mouth as she sat down at the lunch table. Jughead, Betty, and Kevin’s heads all snapped up.

“How do you know about (Y/N)?” Kevin questioned.  Veronica shrugged.

“Archie was kind of having a meltdown at Jughead’s party,” she answered.  Betty and Jughead shared a concerned look.

“God, what happened?” Betty asked.

“He was screaming her name when I came up,” Veronica explained.  "He babbled on about how much he loved her and that he should’ve told her and that he kissed her.“

“Wait, he kissed her?” Kevin interrupted, his eyes doubling in size.  He glanced over at Jughead and Betty who appeared to be just as shocked as he was.

“You didn’t know?” Veronica’s eyes widened.

“No,” Jughead muttered, shaking his head.  "He never told us.“

“We always knew they had a thing for each other,” Kevin elaborated.  "But we never knew that something actually happened between them.“

"When did she move?”

“Two years ago,” Jughead answered.  "The summer before eighth grade.“

"There was this dance,” Betty reminisced, “in the fall of our eighth grade year.”

“Archie was gonna ask (Y/N),” Jughead frowned.  "He was preparing himself ever since he first heard about the dance.“

"And he never got the chance,” Kevin sighed.

“Do you know why she moved?” Veronica inquired.  The rest of her table shrugged.

“Probably her dad,” Betty replied.  "He was a really intense lawyer, and he got relocated to some big city firm.“

”(Y/N) was gonna try and stay with the Andrews,“ said Jughead.  "They were more than willing to take her in, too. But-”

“But, of course, her parents wanted her to go with them,” Veronica finished.  Jughead grimly nodded.  "So two whole years, and Archie still isn’t over this girl?“

"Well the thing is,” Betty grimaced, “he never coped well with her leaving.  After (Y/N) left he was… strange.  He practically denied her existence.”

“Seriously?”

"Yeah,” Kevin chimed in.  "He never talked about her or anything.  It was pretty frightening, actually.  It seemed like he had completely forgotten about her.“

"And if you’re wondering why Archie can’t get over her,” Jughead answered Veronica’s unasked question, “it’s because he was always in love with her.”

“Yeah, he told me that,” she mumbled.

“I don’t think you understand though,” he said.  "They were both so in love.  They were always there for each other, caring for each other.  When Archie’s parents were fighting, (Y/N) was there; whenever (Y/N)’s dog died, Archie was there.  You couldn’t find one without the other.  Betty and I were also good friends with them, but those two?  They were inseparable.“


Maybe it was Veronica’s fascination with dramatic love stories; maybe it was her desire for an explanation as to why Archie didn’t return her feelings for him.  Either way, she found herself searching for more information about (Y/N).  That was how she ended up at the Andrews household.  Archie wasn’t home.

”(Y/N)?“ Fred Andrews repeated, holding a beer as he sat across from Veronica.  "I haven’t heard that name in a while.”

“I, on the contrary, have been hearing her name quite a lot lately,” Veronica shrugged, sipping on a glass of water.  "So what happened between her and Archie?“

"Oh, I don’t think it’s my place to say,” Mr. Andrews sighed.  "It’s Archie’s tale to tell.“

"He already told me about her,” Veronica quickly explained.  "But only the happy parts.  Only the parts he wants to remember.“  Mr. Andrews exhaled and took another swig of beer.  He stared at Veronica for a moment in silence.

"Why do you want to know?” he finally asked.

“I like hearing stories,” she shrugged. “This sounds like a good book.”  Fred Andrews laughed.

“If this was a book,” he responded, “my son would’ve had a happy ending with that girl.”

“Maybe he will,” Veronica offered.  "I don’t think the story’s over yet.“  Fred’s laughter shrunk into a smile.  He cleared his throat.

"If there’s one thing you should know about (Y/N),” he started, “it’s that she is the purest soul you will ever meet.  She was kind and gentle, and she was exactly what Archie needed.”  Veronica quietly nodded, intrigued.  "I knew both her father and mother quite well.  So, of course, when our children were born around the same time, we knew we wanted them to be best friends.  A couple years later, we realized we wanted them to get married.“  Fred Andrews and Veronica both laughed.  "Sometimes in the movies you see the boy and girl resisting each other because when you’re little, it’s gross to talk to someone who’s the opposite gender.  That was never the case with Archie and (Y/N).  They were both sweet on each other.”

“That’s so cute,” Veronica cooed.

“It was,” Mr. Andrews sighed.  "I remember this one day; I think Archie was eleven at the time.  He and (Y/N) were at the park all day, as they usually were.  That night, he came running home and swung the door open.  His mouth was going at a mile per minute.  When I finally got him to slow down, he told me that he was in love with (Y/N).  He had the biggest grin on his face.“

"The day he kissed her?” Veronica clarified.  Mr. Andrews chuckled.

“Yeah.  God, it made me so happy.  I knew that he sometimes overheard his mom and I fighting, and I was worried that it would somehow affect his relationships.  That kind of stuff damages a kid, you know?  But he had stars in his eyes as he talked about (Y/N), and I don’t think I’ve seen him that happy since then.”

“I heard you offered to take her in,” Veronica changed the subject, “when she was going to move.”  Fred Andrews stiffly nodded.

“Archie’s mom and I fought a lot.  But (Y/N)’s parents?  That poor kid.  She slept over here so many times because the screaming was keeping her awake.  And the saddest part was she never cried or appeared to be sad.  She would just come in here, clutching Archie’s hand, looking up at me with big sad eyes and politely asked me to stay.  Of course, I never refused.”  Veronica frowned.  "When I heard she was moving, I was concerned about how crushed Archie was, sure, but I couldn’t bear to let (Y/N) go off on her own with her parents.  At least when she was in Riverdale, I knew she had a safe place here.  Now, I don’t know if she has one.“  He took a long swig of beer before continuing. ”(Y/N) was like a daughter to me.  Archie isn’t the only one who loved her.“

"Sounds like a special girl,” Veronica commented.  Fred nodded.

“She was.”


“Have you ever considered writing a book about this?”  Veronica sat across from Jughead in Pop’s.  He lightly glared at her, lowering his laptop lid.

“Write about what?” he snapped.  She had interrupted his writing when he was in the zone.

“(Y/N),” she answered.  Jughead shot a glance at Betty.

“You know before Jason Blossom was shot, (Y/N) and Archie were the most interesting things in Riverdale.”

“Wasn’t there a two-year gap between (Y/N) leaving and Jason getting shot?” Veronica inquired.

“Isn’t it interesting that someone so in love could just pretend that the person they loved never existed?” Betty countered on Jughead’s behalf.

“Touché,” Veronica muttered.

“Anyways, to answer your question, of course I’ve considered it,” Jughead said.  "In fact, I already wrote a whole novel.“

"Seriously?” Betty and Veronica exclaimed simultaneously.  Jughead nodded nonchalantly.

“Of course.  But I do think something is missing,” he responded.  Veronica furrowed her eyebrows.

“What do you mean?”

“Well I kept it non-fiction,” he elaborated.  "I didn’t add anything that didn’t happen.  Although, I guess now I’ll have to put in the kiss.  Anyways, I don’t have a plot twist.“

”(Y/N) moving isn’t plot twist enough for you?“ Betty asked a question this time.

"That’s the climax,” he explained.  "Everything that happened after that was the falling action.  I have no plot twist and no resolution.“  All three sitting at the table furrowed their eyebrows.  A faint jingle alerted the diner that there was a new customer.  Betty casually glanced up and then did a double take at what she saw.  She gripped Jughead’s arm.

"Is that plot twist enough for you?” she whispered, gesturing towards the entrance.  Jughead and Veronica’s gaze both snapped towards the front, their focus attaching to the figure who just walked in.

“No way,” Jughead breathed.

“Is that…” Veronica trailed off, unable to form a sentence.  Jughead and Betty both nodded, confirming her suspicions.

“(Y/N).”

Yuuri, Victor, and the Importance of Good Communication

Victuuri Week 2017 – Day 4 – Free for All

So for today’s free for all I’d like to talk about something I haven’t heard too much about in the context I’m hoping to present it. My topic is specifically about how Victor and Yuuri are both very independent individuals and how that, combined with both of them having zero experience with serious emotional relationships, works to create miscommunications between the two of them.

To start off, I’d like to clarify what I mean when I say they’re independent. Obviously they’re both able to take care of themselves when it comes to stuff such as physical needs (like feeding themselves, etc). I’m talking more about how they’re emotionally independent. They’re both the kind of people who keep their problems to themselves and try to solve them all without relying on the help of others. They both actually tell us this directly.

We see this come up a bunch during the series even though both are aware that they do this. You can see it happen as early as episode 2 when Victor is hurt that Yuuri is rejecting him after the connection he felt they had at the banquet but never brings it up with him. Instead he sits on and stews in it. And likewise for Yuuri, he’s very confused as to why Victor is there at all and is being so forward with him but never asks him why. He just comes to his own conclusions and treats them as the truth until proven otherwise.

On top of them both being used to handling their problems on their own and internalizing their worries, they both also have no experience with deep emotional love relationships. I use the adjectives deep, emotional, and love to describe the relationship because you can have any other combination of those and have it not really touch the depth and type of relationship these two have with each other. They may have had other relationships but none that came close to this level.

(More under the cut, you’re not done yet!)

What do you love about Pride & Prejudice? (I'm asking because I really enjoy how you translate many of the works you read into 'today's language' so to say) x

I love that it’s about love. Like actually really genuinely and honestly about love. It’s about love and compromise and change and trust and expectations and maturity and learning when you’re wrong and when you’re right and acting accordingly. And all of those things are love?

Like, Darcy isn’t this cultural icon of the perfect man because he’s all dark and brooding but rich and attractive. He has the cultural iconicity he has because like…he’s rude and proud and a hypocrite and some of that is covering for the fact that he’s just damn awkward, BUT he owns up to it. Lizzie calls him tf out and instead of sulking, instead of feeling entitled to her (which all the norms of their society says he is), he starts examining his behaviour and his attitudes and changes them. And he doesn’t push her or do it just for her, he doesn’t do grand gestures that scream ‘look at me I’ve changed I’m being better now marry me’. He does it quietly, discreetly, because he genuinely wants to be better, bc she’s shown him how and why it’s important. And THAT’S why Lizzie falls in love with him, and why generations of readers have too.

Lizzie goes through a similar process of growing out of her prejudice and growth generally and learning that love is about compromise and commitment and fighting to understand each other while the entire world seems to conspire to obscure you. She learns that sometimes it’s about holding your damn nerve and sometimes it’s about giving in, about letting yourself feel affection for this man in full knowledge that it won’t be easy but that it will be worth it.

And it’s beautiful, it’s so beautiful. It’s light and life and honestly I could read and watch these two fools fall in love over and over again for eternity and never get bored.

I’ve only talked about Lizzie and Darcy here but it’s also about love between family, between people who have been married for decades, between siblings who struggle to like each other but love fiercely, and all those forms of love are just as important. It’s so honest and true and wonderful and everyone should read it.

I will never be over Sherlock Holmes practically pleading with Molly Hooper to say “I love you” to him.

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

Those of you who identify with two (or all three) “A” in the lgbtqa+ acronym (asexual, aromantic, agender) may feel twice as invisible - as each single “A” on its own gets ignored or excluded often enough. 

You’re lgbt+. You belong in our community. I promise, you’re not invisible to me. 

Aromantic Asexual? Asexual Agender? Aromantic Asexual and Agender? Any other combination involving two of them? You’re super rad and i’m so glad to have you in my community! *big hugs*

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom

Some angst because, why not

Daisuga: Whatever you do don’t think about Daichi standing at the end of an alter right beside suga as his best man. As he watches suga get married off to a cute woman, Daichi slowly dies in the inside.

Asanoya:Don’t think of how Noya runs into Asahi at the shops long after graduation and they rekindle their old relationship and Noya thinks he’s got a chance until Asahi invites him to dinner with his son and wife.

Tsukkiyama:Don’t imagine Tsukkishima and Yamaguchi getting together during school but drifting apart when college hits. Their feelings never change but when Tsukki goes to visit it Yamaguchi he is struck with the news that his best friend took his own life, self doubt consuming his soul.

Kagehina:Don’t think of how as the two grew closer together Hinata grew closer to Kageyama’s younger sister and eventually marries her and Kageyama thinks he’s fine being friends but the guilt eventually gets to him and soon kags joins Yamaguchi.

Ennotanna:Don’t begin the thought of Ennoshita crushing on Tanaka in high school but knowing that tanaka is so out of reach that this angst propells him to direct award Winning movies fueled by tradegy. And no matter how many awards he wins it never fills the Tanaka shaped hole in his heart.

Kinonari:Don’t ponder over the fact of Narita and Kinoshita who were so in love yet so over being forgotten, invisible to those around them. This makes them quit volleyball and run away never to be known the whereabouts of untill the team gets a message, they’re the first to go.

Iwaoi: Don’t think of these two sharing a kiss before separating to different colleges and doing their best to stay in touch but instead slowly their calls and text become less frequent and ‘Iwa-Chan❤’ is all but a mere contact that lays on the bottom of Oikawas call history.

Kuroken: Don’t begin thinking of Kenma and Kuroo pining after each other for years but an argument about something causes them to never speak again. This makes them go quiet for years leading Kenma to go into depression and when Kuroo gets the guts to speak to Kenma again he finds that his closest friend had dissapeared from the world never to be seen again.

Bokuaka: Don’t think of Bokuto going emo in college and Akaashi isn’t around to pick him up, not because Bokuto is in college and Akaashi is in high school, but because Akaashi and his family had moved all the way abroad. This causes Bokuto to slowly fall into insanity.

Matsuhana: No matter what don’t think of these two casually walking through the city laughing at jokes and old memories at night holding hands. When a drunken driver in a truck loses control heading straight towards the two. In the rush Makki pushes Mattsun away sacrificing himself. Leaving Mattsun alone.

Whatever you do, don’t imagine these guys losing their other halfs with my angsty headcanons but instead read fluffy fanfiction instead. (Why am I doing this)
