The last few days at the Institute had been terribly boring. Nothing had happened, the city was calm and there was no sign of demons. It didn’t happen much so you had been told to enjoy those little moments but it was hard to do such thing when it was so dull. Izzy and Clary had gone shopping, Jace was training and Alec was probably training too or at the library being a nerd as usual. It wasn’t until the middle of the afternoon when you came up with an idea.

“Where were you? I’ve been looking for you all around the Institute”, Alec said walking into your room hours later.

“Shopping” you smiled widely.

“I didn’t know you had gone with Izzy and Clary” he commented.

“Oh no, no that kind of shopping” you chuckled. “I bought a Wii!” You told him excited.

You had a lot of money from your heritage and you never knew how to spend the money since everything was given to you by the Institute. But finally you had found a perfect investment. You used to play Wii at your cousins’ place when you were little, before your parents told you about the ShadowWorld and your life changed.

It had been a long time since that moment but you still loved these games as much as Jace loved his looks. Probably you were a little rusty since it had been a long time since the last time you played, but you were probably still good.

“A what?” Alec frowned confused.

“You gotta be kidding me” you laughed but his face didn’t change. “Are you seriously telling me you don’t know what the Wii is?” You asked. He thought for a few moments but finally he shook his head. “X-Box? PlayStation? Nintendo DS?” All the time he just shook his head. “Oh my God, you’ve been living here in New York for how long? And you don’t know anything about videogames! That has to change. Now” you told him and took his hand.

You had convinced the head of the Institute to place the video console in one of the computer rooms with the condition of stop playing whenever the room was needed. And of course, after making you promise that playing wouldn’t interfere with your duties as a Shadowhunter. You didn’t have a problem with that. Fighting demons was much funnier than every single videogame in the world.

When you two arrived at the computer room you closed the door and started explaining Alec how the console worked. The only game you had bought was Wii Sports because you weren’t able to choose one so you would just wait for Simon to come to the Institute to decide since he would probably know some good games.

“Ok…so I move this and my…well, that thing that is supposed to look like me moves at the same time?” Alec asked when you finished explaining how to play tennis.

“That’s right, Lightwood” you smiled at him. “Are you ready?” You asked.

“I guess so” he shrugged.

“Don’t worry, I’ll go easy on you” you chuckled.

Alec rolled his eyes with his eyes fixed on the screen while you started the game. Of course he missed many times, giving you so many victories to brag about.

“Once again”, he said after the third time.

“Really? I’ve kicked your ass three times in a row. Have some dignity Alec” you teased him. He narrowed his eyes at you.

“Now” he commanded.

You laughed and shrugged before starting the game again. This time, Alec was agiler, like he knew what he was doing all of sudden instead of moving the console like he was killing flies.

“Ready?” You heard him say.

“For what?” You laughed.            

“This” he said.

Suddenly his game became fierce and fast, almost impossible to follow, like he had been playing his whole life. It was impossible for you to catch the balls and before you could realise it, you had lost.

“What was that!?” You exclaimed. He turned to look at you with a huge smirk on his face.

“As you said…I’ve been living in New York for too long. Did you really believe I didn’t know what the Wii was?” He asked.

“You cheated!” You exclaimed making him laugh.

“No, I didn’t. You were just too innocent” he smiled cocky. “Let me introduce to the three times winner of the Institute Championship of Wii Sports” he added.

“You’re kidding right?” You asked.

“Jace has one in his room” he laughed out loud. “But hey, you’ll improve” he winked at you before he walked out of the room, leaving you completely speechless.

Other animes in non-romance genre: 

*little bit of obscure exchange of looks, lots of blushing and looking away*

*lots of foreshadowing but nothing really clear*

*accidental hand brush or tripping over each other*

*double meaning sentences that the fandom can never really prove as canon*

*lots and lots of shipbaiting*

*smugly* THIS is our canon. Don’t you think it’s beautiful? 

YURI ON ICE EVERYONE:

Bitch please. Get out of the way. THIS IS CANON.

“How to make a canon couple and healthy romance”. Take a crash course from YOI in 10 episodes straight.

Same~

Remember the scene in the latest episode where Tsukki was bending over at the sink?

Doesn’t this remind you of something?

This scene is from when Tsukki found out his brother was never the ace at Karasuno. 

What he learned from that experience is that no matter how hard you try, there will always be someone better than you. So, why try at all? Why practice and get better if someone is always ahead of you?

When he explained this to Yamaguchi in s2 ep8, Yams obviously got really mad.

Yamaguchi called Tsukki lame for not trying his best. Tsukki, whom Yamaguchi has always looked up to and thought as cool, is now ‘lame’ in his eyes. 

This is a major turning point for Tsukki. From then on in the season, Tsukki tried really hard to improve and learn new skills.

Now, fast forward to s3 ep10… Tsukki is finally realizing his passion for volleyball. Throughout the season, he had tried his best during the match with Shiratorizawa and reached the limits of his ability. Yet, even after they won, he thought of himself as ‘lame’ for not trying hard enough. This is SO DIFFERENT from where he was in season 2, where he thought people were lame for trying TOO HARD.

Yamaguchi realizes how much Tsukki has changed…

Yamaguchi recognizes that Tsukki tried his very best in the match, and is reassuring him that yes, you DO have something to be proud of. They won and are going to nationals! And Tsukki was the MVP of the game.

Tsukki isn’t lame for trying his best. He should be proud of his team and his own accomplishments.

And I think that by the end of the episode, Tsukki does realize how cool Karasuno really is.

Lemme just say… holy shit. That is some good character development right there. This is why I love Haikyuu.
