Everything you are is everything I'm not
Night and day, light and dark

Kise is the light of the day. He likes girls, basketball, airplanes, and sweaty bodies under flashing lights. When he falls, he springs back up. He almost doesn't notice that he's shining a little less brighter each day, but he's smiling brighter and brighter nonetheless and it sure fucking hurts at night.

Midorima is the dead of the night. He likes porn, basketball, trains, and lucky items. When he falls, he assesses the damage, adjusts his glasses, and stands back up. He almost doesn't notice that he's limping, but it sure fucking hurts at night.

One day, Midorima notices that Kise is burning out, and Kise notices that Midorima is limping.

After hitting the showers post-practice, Midorima kisses Kise.


A/N: This started out as a oneshot, but somewhere along the way it became a series of drabbles. Don't despair, you are not alone—they make as much sense to me as they do to you.

The quotes which will be used throughout this fic is from Hate and Love by Jack Savoretti and Sienna Miller
