I just realized this…
We all remember the wonderful scene where Aomine gives Kagami the basketball shoes.
This is the scene in question (or a small part of it) and you can see fairly well that these are the Air Jordan 1 Retro Chicago (yes. I researched.).
So let me tell you something I discovered on my journey through the interwebs: these shoes are fucking hard to get! Well, that is if you want them NEW (you can always look on ebay, but they are really expensive there too) and for a more affordable price that is not almost 400$! Most of the time, when they’re on regular sale, they’re some sort of limited edition. Go, google it, find these shoes for less than 150$. Either I’m too stupid to buy a pair of sneakers or AoKaga has just clouded my whole brain… (or it is just hard to find them from Germany…)
My conclusion? Aomine gives Kagami a pair of shoes that you can most likely get only as a limited edition, for a ridiculous amount of money or used on ebay.
I’m done with these idiots. DONE.
The point of fics set in alternate universes are to show that no matter what setting or circumstance, these two people will always find each other. I will find you. Every me loves every you.

Taiga gripped the railing that ran around the upper gallery of the examination hall and glared at the scene below. This had to be someone’s idea of a sick joke, right? Since when did they match teammates up against each other in the chunnin fights like this?
Down in the arena, Kuroko stood, as calm and unmoved as always. One part of Kagami wanted to yell at him to forfeit the match. There was no way he could win this, or get through it in one piece. But Kagami knew what he’d do if he was in Kuroko’s place, and he knew Kuroko.
He wasn’t going to back down, not with that bastard Akashi standing at the other end of the arena.
Akashi said, “You know there is no way you can win this, Tetsuya. Are you truly prepared to stand against a teammate and a member of the main house?”
He said, “The fact that I am standing here should be answer enough, Akashi-sama.”
Then Kuroko - who never took off his forehead protector in public, who wore his bangs so long most of the time you couldn’t even see his eyes - reached up and pushed his forehead protector back so it lifted his hair from his face, to reveal the cursed seal carved on his temple.
An audible gasp resounded from the watchers in the upper gallery.
“The rest is for you to decide, is it not?” Kuroko, ignored branch member of a bloodline clan born with no bloodline, said to his cousin. To his family’s prodigy heir. If Akashi wanted to stop the fight, he could stop it right now. He could win it right now, with a single lift of a finger.
Akashi smiled the smile that always made the hairs at the back of Kagami’s neck rise. His Byukugan was already awakened, his answer unmistakable.
“Very well, Tetsuya. We fight.”
About to send off my Unscrupulous Raven.
He came back.
He’s perched on your bedstead, sleeker and plumper than before. “I’m so damnably clever,” he boasts. “I’ve set us up a wonderful little operation. No, you don’t need to worry about the details. I’ll take care of everything.” You now have 1 x Devious Raven Advisor
A Midorima Shintarou x Takao Kazunari Ship Manifesto
This is a ship manifesto for the KnB pairing of Midorima Shintarou and Takao Kazunari, aka MidoTaka/TakaMido. I use events from the manga and anime only. This essay assumes a working knowledge of Kuroko no Basuke’s canon.
Cutting off hair in ancient Asia (Japan, china, Korea & possibly some other Asian cultures) symbolizes being banished or rejected from their home. In the more modern age that is now, cutting long hair into a short cut means to forget the past, leaving the old and starting anew.
