SPOILERS AHEAD. There is also mention of abuse. Please read at your own discretion.


Akira:

  • Akira was the same way as a child as he is now; quiet, reckless, and very courageous.
  • Unfortunately, he didn’t have many friends. His quiet and analytical demeanor appeared as ‘weird’ to the other kids; as a result, he became a loner.
  • One day during recess, he witnessed a student being bullied by three others.
  • Akira interfered immediately; he knew he wasn’t a match for them but he couldn’t just watch, either.
  • Two of the bullies took their aggression out on him instead, while the other was holding the victim back; they struggled and begged the thugs to leave Akira alone.
  • Once they left, Akira was on the ground, and the victim helped him stand on his feet. “Thank you for standing up for me. I’m sorry that I wasn’t strong enough to do anything for you… um…”
  • “Akira,” he spoke gently.
  • “Akira,” they repeated. He thought his name sounded nice coming from them. “My name is S/O. Can we be friends?”
  • He smiled and nodded. “Sounds good to me.”
  • From then on, the two were inseparable. They did almost everything together: skateboarding, sharing lunches, and attending festivities. 
  • Their feelings even blossomed together; by the time they reached their first year of high school, they were already in love and dating.
  • Akira fell for S/O’s warmth and boldness, and S/O with Akira’s quiet determination and independence. 
  • He ended the relationship the day of his arrest; he didn’t want them to receive backlash from dating a criminal, and he didn’t want them to become a target. S/O put up a fight, but Akira proceeded to block their number and delete any trace of them.
  • The only trace of them that remained was the impact they left on his heart.
  • They encountered each other in Tokyo during a holiday, and after a bit of fighting, Akira kissed S/O and whispered, “I missed you so much.”
  • Their relationship continued where it had left off, and they fell in love all over again.


Ryuji:

  • Ryuji and S/O met in elementary school by being assigned as partners for a project, and they butted heads throughout the ordeal; he’d get enraged by their smarty-pants, know-it-all attitude, and S/O got irritated with his laziness and ignorance. 
  • They often wrestled and stuck their tongues out at each other, and they scoffed whenever adults said that the two were like a married couple.
  • One day after school, S/O bought some ramen in celebration of not seeing Ryuji all day, but then they came across an isolated alleyway that echoed with sobs.
  • Curious, S/O checked it out and discovered Ryuji balled up with his face in his legs, and his shoulders were heaving.
  • The awkwardness was unsettling as S/O asked, “What’s the matter with you?”
  • Ryuji glanced up to reveal a face covered in bruises. His surprised expression had turned into one of annoyance. “Dammit, it just had to be you. Just leave me alone.”
  • S/O’s initial shock upon seeing his battered face had morphed into frustration. “Don’t be stupid, you need help!”
  • “What’re you gonna do?! Dad’s gonna keep hurting me no matter what! Go away!”
  • S/O was silent as they planted themself right next to Ryuji. They extended their ramen to him. “Eat it.”
  • He nearly flung it out their hands as he yelled, “I toldja to go a-!”
  • Ryuji was interrupted by the ramen that was shoved in his mouth. “It’ll make you feel better, now shut up and eat,” S/O demanded.
  • He begrudgingly did as he was told, and S/O never left his side until it was evening. Ryuji was embarrassed when he thanked them the following day, and from then on they became close friends. 
  • They’d have weekly ramen hangouts, and it hastily grew to be Ryuji’s favorite food. 
  • He asked S/O out in high school pre-Phantom Thieves, when he realized just how much he hated the thought of them dating anyone else. To his surprise, S/O accepted.


Ann:

  • Ann and S/O had known each other since birth; their parents were close friends and they worked together in the American fashion industry.
  • The kids clicked instantly; since Ann’s parents were always traveling, she’d be dropped off at S/O’s house and they’d bond over the sweets Ann’s parents had left her.
  • The two were always hugging and playing games together, with a carton of cookies always within their proximity.
  • Unfortunately, Ann’s parents’ work forced the family to move overseas, so the two friends had to be separated when they were only in middle school.
  • Ann quickly became self-conscious of how different she looked from everyone else in Japan, and she constantly called S/O for consolation.
  • “Ann, you’re more than your looks. It’s their loss for missing out on such an incredible person because they can’t see past the physical. Take pride in your beautiful heart.”
  • “Y-yeah… thanks, S/O. You really are my best friend.”
  • The two called each other nearly every day; they’d talk about their day, joke around, and discuss all the things they were going to do when they met again. 
  • Ann became a famous supermodel during college, and it eventually led her back to America.
  • The first thing she did was visit S/O. Except seeing them this time felt… different. Ann would blush and find herself at a loss for what to say.
  • S/O asked Ann to be their girlfriend that day, and it was then she realized that what she felt before was romantic.
  • Ann accepted rather aggressively, causing S/O to laugh and abruptly kiss her.
  • They had been waiting to do that for a very long time.


Yusuke:

  • S/O had been accepted as Madarame’s pupil in their first year of middle school, after they won first place in an art contest.
  • Their parents had a nasty divorce and they didn’t want anything to do with S/O, so Madarame accepted custody over them.
  • They were already acquainted with Yusuke, but they weren’t close until he heard them weeping in bed one night. He didn’t know what to do other than trudge over to S/O and awkwardly lay in bed with them.
  • “Th-there, there,” he said, patting their shoulder.
  • S/O turned to face him and implored, “What are you doing?”
  • “I-I thought this would comfort you. S-sorry.” He began to leave the bed when S/O halted him by gripping his arm.
  • “Please don’t go.”
  • Yusuke stared at them for a moment and complied. “Y-yes.” S/O snuggled up next to him, and his heart skipped a beat.
  • The two were good friends after that, and they always went to school together. S/O usually stayed after to hang out with their friends while Yusuke simply went home, eager to paint.
  • One day, S/O brought their friends inside the shack because they needed to retrieve some of their belongings. While they were gone, their friends glanced at Yusuke and loudly whispered, “I can’t believe S/O lives with that freak. It must be so tough.”
  • Little did they know that S/O was standing in the doorway, seething at their every word. “He’s a better person than any of you. Get out,” they demanded.
  • Yusuke and S/O were best friends now. They’d always paint together and go for walks, returning with their favorite ice cream in hand.
  • Right before starting high school, S/O decided to move out because they couldn’t tolerate Madarame’s plagiarism any longer. They extended their offer to Yusuke but he refused, stating that he owes Madarame his life.
  • They got into a fight; S/O wanted to protect Yusuke from the art theft, but he defended Madarame and told S/O that he couldn’t wait until they left.
  • “Good-bye, Yusuke,” S/O said softly on moving day. He didn’t even glance at them, but he dropped his face in his hands the second he heard the front door shut.
  • The two often passed by each other in school, and Yusuke gave S/O the cold shoulder the first and only time they tried to approach him.
  • A year passed, and on the evening of Madarame’s confession, he saw S/O standing outside the desolate shack. He took a deep breath and approached them. They gazed at each other for a while, seemingly conversing with their eyes.
  • Yusuke spoke first, his voice heavy with guilt. “I…”
  • S/O nodded. “I know… I’ve missed you.”
  • He didn’t know why, but his heart fluttered upon hearing those words. “Yes… I’ve missed you, too.” Silence rang in their ears. “…Would you like to come inside?”
  • They spent the rest of the night chatting, with S/O stopping Yusuke every time he attempted to apologize. 
  • S/O teased him by addressing how they noticed that he stared at them in school, and he spitefully silenced them with a kiss.
  • They were already a couple when dawn arrived.


Makoto:

  • Makoto met S/O in elementary school. Some student bumped into her and all of her pencils/pens fell out of the open pocket in her bag.
  • “I must have forgotten to close it…” she muttered as she bent down to recover her fallen supplies. 
  • S/O was just passing by and decided to assist Makoto. They saw her place the utensils in the bag’s pocket and they asked, “You don’t have a pencil case?”
  • Makoto sighed and peered up at them. “I haven’t gotten around to getting a new one yet.”
  • S/O nodded. “Here, take mine. I have some others at home I can use.” They pulled out the Buchimaru-kun pencil case that Makoto had been eyeing for a while. 
  • She gasped. “A-are you sure I can have this?”
  • S/O smiled. “Just take it.”
  • From that day forward, they were joined at the hip. They studied together and had slumber parties at Makoto’s house. Her father and Sae were pleased that she had found a good friend, and he’d occasionally cook dinner for everyone when he wasn’t on duty.
  • Their crushes began in middle school when S/O made chocolates for Makoto on Valentine’s Day. Both of their faces were red during the entire exchange.
  • However, they never established a romantic relationship.
  • After the death of Makoto’s father at the end of middle school, she wholly dedicated herself to her studies, thus distancing the friendship.
  • Makoto felt guilty for feeling so exuberant and comforted around S/O when her father had only just died, so she pushed them away.
  • They reconnected when Makoto had started investigating the Phantom Thieves. She was following Akira in Shibuya when she crashed into S/O.
  • “I’m so sorry!” Makoto helped them stand and froze when she realized who it was. “S/O…”
  • They smiled warmly. “Hey.” Their faces flushed.
  • Makoto completely forgot about her investigation in that moment. “S-so, would you like to join me for a cup of coffee at the diner?”
  • S/O nervously nodded. “S-sounds good.”
  • They became close once more, and they didn’t start dating until the Thieves had defeated Kaneshiro.


Futaba:

  • S/O noticed Futaba sitting alone during lunch in elementary school. They also noticed the video game logo on her shirt, so they approached her and complimented her on it.
  • “You like it too?!” Futaba’s excitement made S/O giggle.
  • “Yeah, I do! Can I sit with you?”
  • She nodded. “Mm-hm!” 
  • The two introduced themselves and energetically discussed video games together.
  • After that encounter, S/O accompanied Futaba during lunch ever since.
  • Futaba would often invite S/O to her house, and her mom would go crazy since their appetites were so colossal that they could eat an entire fridge full of food and still be famished. 
  • S/O was always fascinated by Futaba’s broad range of knowledge, and Futaba admired S/O’s sense of adventure.
  • They’d often play in the rain together and stomp in puddles, and their crushes eventually came to fruition.
  • But after Futaba’s mother died from the car accident, she was forced to move away because custody of her was pawned off to a distant relative.
  • She never even got to say good-bye to S/O.
  • Futaba gathered her courage and reached out to them one day after destroying Medjed. She arranged plans with them to meet up at Leblanc.
  • When they saw each other, Futaba nearly suffocated from S/O’s constrictive hugging. 
  • All of her nervousness had vanished. 
  • Well, most of it.
  • The two spent the entire day exploring the city, rekindling old feelings as they did so. Their fun was cut short when S/O had to drive back home.
  • It was a gradual process, but they finally started dating that summer, and their feelings gave birth to love by the end of the season.

Haru:

  • Haru was raised to be kind and polite, so when she saw S/O struggling to carry their books, she offered to help. This occurred near the end of elementary school.
  • S/O crushed on Haru upon seeing her, and they nearly dropped their books as a result. 
  • The two became fast friends, but S/O’s crush remained unrequited until Haru’s third year of high school, after her father died and after her refusal of the arranged marriage.
  • During their friendship, they loved to create arts and crafts. They’d playfully attach stickers to each other and doodle on their arms. 
  • Things continued like that throughout middle school, except their new hobbies were sewing and gardening. 
  • Okumura considered S/O as a second child, up until high school. He changed as his business expanded, and when freshman year came around he forbade Haru from seeing S/O, since he was beginning the process of searching for a fiance.
  • That didn’t stop either of them though; they continued to text each other, and meet up in secret after school.
  • However, Haru became reclusive when Okumura introduced her to her vile fiance. 
  • It pained her to ignore her only friend, but she felt like she needed to comply to her father’s wishes to protect S/O, and meeting up would have become difficult with her fiance keeping such a… close eye on her.
  • Shortly after Okumura’s death, Haru texted S/O to come over to her house, and of course, they did. They comforted her, and that’s when Haru confessed her feelings.
  • S/O was elated, but they refused, explaining that they felt Haru was too emotional and that she needed time to recover.
  • During a particularly freezing Saturday night in December, Haru once again confessed her feelings to S/O while drinking tea on the couch. 
  • After S/O reconfirmed that she was certain of this, Haru set her tea down and boldly kissed S/O.
  • Haru flushed and apologized for her brashness, but S/O simply pecked her on the cheek and cuddled with her. The couple fell asleep in each other’s arms.
