However, after being forcefully dragged into the popular game Volley Ball all semblance of a peaceful life for Hinata ends.

  • Yang: Come on Kitten. Think of the money.
  • Blake: We don't if she could come here to help us.
  • Yang: Think of the Sushi Blakey. *Yang pounted leaning over to give her girlfriend and kiss as she wraps her arms around her.*
  • Blake: Hehe, Okay okay. We'll ask later if she has the time. *Blake smiled as Yang kissed her ticklish spots.*
  • Yang: Yes. I love you. *kiss* And maybe if we play our cards right.. *Yang Smirked wiggling her eyebrows*
  • Blake: Lets not push our luck Babe. Also, I love you too. *kiss*

Sometimes I feel like giving up. Then, I remember I have a lot of people to prove wrong.


(Picture done by e-vay! She’s awesome!)

“Hey, Tails. You about done with those fireworks?” Sonic said, placing some food on the party table Amy had set up.

“Yeah. I’ve just about got it all finished here. Just making a few adjustments. It’ll take a couple of minutes.” Tails explained as he continued to tinker out the few kinks in his firework machine.

“Alright, buddy. Tell me when you’re ready.”

“Gotcha.” Tails said as he waved two fingers to Sonic before he walked away.

Amy decided to give the crew a New Years party along with the contribution of Tails’ amazing fireworks. She’d even gone out of her way to make a couple of hors d'oeuvres and some sweet drinks along with a main meal. What better way to start the new year off than with a couple of repleted stomachs?

Sticks and Knuckles had been playing with a glow-in-the-dark volley ball, seeing that they both love shiny objects, especially if it’s glowing in the dark. Amy was sitting near the water, gazing out into the sea. Sonic noticed her all by herself and decided to accompany her. He walked over and sat down next to her, not saying a word and just placing his elbows on his knees, looking out into the ocean also.

“So…what’s goin on in that pretty little head of yours?” Sonic asked, looking to Amy with half closed eyes. She blushed at his compliment and just continued looking ahead.

“Oh…just…thinking about the things to come in the new year. Hoping for new things. New places. Silly things like that.”

Sonic chuckled at her response. “I don’t think it’s silly. Isn’t wanting new things to happen the norm for a New Years Resolution?”

She turned to him and smiled. “Well, yeah, but I guess mine’s a little boring, huh.”

Sonic raised a brow at her. “Boring? Nah, Ames. I like to call it…simple. And that’s cool. I don’t really have one myself.” he said as he lied back on the sand, placing his hands behind his head and closing his eyes.

Amy looked at him in question. “What? How can you not have a resolution? It’s a tradition.”

“Yeah, well, I’ve never been a traditional kind of guy. I’d rather things just go naturally. Ya know. Go with the flow.” he said as he opened one eye and moved one hand in a wave-like motion.

“Is that how you handle everything?”

“Pretty much.”

She giggled before looking back to the ocean and resting her head and cupping her arms around her knees. “Sonic…there is one thing I’d like to happen for the new year.”

Sonic sat up and looked to her, waiting for her response.

“…I’d like you to be more careful…” she said as she turned to look at him, seriousness written on her face. “I mean it, Sonic. You mean a lot to us and…well, I don’t know what I’d do if we ever lost you. I can’t tell you how terrified I was when Lyric…” she paused, trying to compose herself, not wanting to think about what happened, “when Lyric hurt you. All of us were pretty scared out of our minds, but I can’t speak for them; only myself. Sonic, just…don’t be so ruthless this year, k?"she finished softly, placing a hand on top of his and looking into his eyes for assurance.

Sonic blinked, looked at her hand, and back up to her, smirking. He leaned forward slyly. "Gosh, Amy. I didn’t know ya cared.”

Amy frowned and punched his arm. “Sonic, I’m serious!”

He chuckled and smiled at her. “Yeah, Ames. I’ll be careful.”

“You promise?”

He placed his other hand on her current one lying on his. “Promise.”

Amy smiled and squeezed his hand, thanking him physically. They were facing each other and their faces weren’t too far from the other. For a moment, their eyes were locked onto each other, contemplating the unthinkable (in their minds) before a voice interrupted their thoughts.

“Alright, Sonic! It’s time!” Tails called out as Sticks and Knuckles stopped their volley ball game and walked towards Tails.

Sonic and Amy looked back towards each other and removed their hands from the other, blushing as they did so. Sonic rubbed the back of his head and smiled sheepishly before standing up and offering a hand to Amy, to which she gladly accepted. As they walked back to the others, Sonic looked down as he walked.


Amy turned to him. “Yes?”

“I do it to protect you…er, you guys! I do it to protect you guys…Heh.” he said nervously, trying to fix his mistake, if a mistake at all. Amy stared at him, touched that he’d confessed something so sweet, even if he did try and fix it. She wasn’t stupid. She smiled and leaned up to kiss him on the cheek. He flinched by surprise, but relaxed when he realized it was just on his cheek.

“Thank you, Sonic. That means a lot to me…and I’m sure it would to them too. Hehe.” she giggled and placed her arm around his as they continued to walk to the group. Tails, Sticks and Knuckles all raised a brow at Sonic’s blushing and Amy being latched on his arm.

“Uhhh, did we miss somethin’?” Knuckles asked, raising a finger.

Amy let go of Sonic’s arm and walked past the others, checking to see if the food was still edible and hadn’t been attacked by night bugs yet. Sonic watched her as he stopped in front of them and smiled. “Nah. You didn’t miss a thing. Now, what time is it?”

“Ah, we have 25 seconds until midnight hits. You all ready for countdown?” Tails asked excitedly, holding a lever that would trigger the firework machine to work its magic.

“Let the shiny works begin!” Sticks cheered.

“Oooh, shiny works? I wanna see!” Knuckles jumped up and down, clapping his hands in anticipation.

“This is gonna be so cool!” Tails gushed.

Sonic looked at his wrist com’ which had a timer on it. “Alright, guys, it’s going on…13, 12, 11…"Amy walked up next to Sonic and grabbed his hand, also counting down and smiling up at him as he smiled back.

"10..9..8..7..6..5..4..3..2..1..HAPPY NEW YEAR!” They all screamed as Tails pulled the lever and rockets of fireworks shot out from the machine, flying high into the night sky. They lit up the entire island, blasting everywhere, making loops and scriggly lines as they dashed off in all kinds of directions into the atmosphere. They all watched in awe and Tails brushed his knuckles on his chest, proud of his handy work.

Sonic and Amy hugged each other as did Knuckles and Sticks until they all came together in a group hug, grabbing Tails in the process.

After the fireworks, they all sat and ate a wonderfully prepared midnight meal, also going around the table telling their New Years Resolutions. After that, they played a couple of games, danced and reminisced on the year that had gone by, enjoying each other’s memories as well as their own.

The End

Since it looks like some people don’t know, about that seijou 3rd years playing game together picture:

1. They are playing the same game (monhun! Or whatever it was called in this series since I can’t remember) Kenma and Karasuno played during the Nekoma OVA. (source)

2. It’s a bonus card of vobaca (aka volley ball card game, haikyuu’s official card game) you can get if you buy the 5th expansion pack from either Jump Shop, Animate, or Takara Tomy Mall. So yes, it’s an official art. (source)

Rejoice! And unleash all your hc (*`ω´)

Card name: “Aobajousai: One Hunt Before Club Activities”

Norman Reedus interview for Hobo Magazine by Shawn Dogimont

“My buddy Norman Reedus makes his show The Walking Dead in the woods of Georgia, away from Hollywood. He’s had a unique career path and life in general. With his son Mingus, he sometimes makes me think of Ugami Itto in the manga The Lone Wolf and Cub. If you look, there’s even a theme of apocalyptic justice running through his work. He’s a longtime cult favourite, a really nice guy, and you just root for him in life and on screen. He’s poised for a massive breakout now but still lives in Chinatown. As he says here : « if it’s ever slow acting I’ll just do more art shows. » At the moment he’s doing less.”
