Omg I liked reading your new fic, The Checkered Room. It's really interesting, I liked how you started it. I felt you captured Kaneki pretty well. But I don't see any reason for him to not tell Hide about what happened, esp since nothing terrible happened to Kaneki's body like in the manga.
Hello! I’m glad you like my new story! :) As for Kaneki telling Hide anything, I don’t think he would.
In the manga, Kaneki initially didn’t tell anyone Rize was a ghoul. Though I’m sure there were a number of reasons, (Him having the organ transplant from her and his sudden distaste in food. I must add here that he didn’t seem to seriously think he was a ghoul yet. He seemed to be in denial that anything was wrong, jokingly suggesting he was turning into an insect, though I’m positive some heavy suspicion was there. Therefore, I cannot say, that didn’t play a part in his decision to keep quiet.) it was mentioned Kaneki also didn’t say anything because it wouldn’t sound like he was telling the truth. (This was taken from chapter two of the manga, when Hide and Kaneki were at ‘Big Girl’). In reality, if anyone were to believe Kaneki, I think it would be Hide, but I’m sure even with his best friend the doubt would still exist in Kaneki’s mind.
In my story, (The Checkered Room), he didn’t have any proof at all that he was attacked, besides his injuries. Kaneki would probably think the injuries would just make Hide worried, and I don’t think he would want that either.
Basically, I think if Kaneki thought he could sweep the whole incident under the rug, he would.
Thank you for the ask!
