Make It Work
Make it Work is a story written by loveonthefarm and illustrated by cloven. It originally ran in Issue 55 at http://s2b2.livejournal.com/308299.html, and is mirrored at http://www.shousetsubangbang.com/mirror/make-it-work/.
From https://fairyninjas.wordpress.com/2015/06/29/ssbb-55-guys-and-balls/: "A nice dessert tale of two guys on a volleyball team, who might be assholes, and who might hate each other, or who might really like each other, if only they bothered to talk to each other."
- http://harmless-one.livejournal.com/38009.html: "This one is about Tory and Jaime, two volleball players on a college team who couldn't be more different. The story follows them working together as a team and also trying to figure out what the readers know from the very first tension-filled glare: Oh, just go bang already! The dynamic really works here because the will they?/won't they? is front and center as Tory and Jaime get to know each other. Volleyball is a big part of the story, but it doesn't get in the way of the romance. And the first kiss is so great and actually more satisfying than the sex scene, if you can believe that. Loveonthefarm really makes you wait for it, which is something I am a fan of. I have found that the minute I get what I think I want in a story is the minute I lose interest. So authors who don't give me the first kiss for ages have me hook, line, and sinker. So, yeah, this one was right up my alley. It also had awsome illustration by cloven."
