Never apologize for asking for KiKasa! I love them to bits and really should ramble about them more than I do.
always wins when they play Trivia Crack
Kasamatsu! Although Kise always takes the art/entertainment categories in a landslide, he does abysmally on anything requiring actual useful practical knowledge. Kasamatsu has taken to kicking him for failing to remember what a hypothenuse is because they just went over it in a study session yesterday is your brain made of Swiss cheese or something! (Kise privately maintains that he would remember a lot better if Senpai hadn’t failed to mention that he’s wearing reading glasses for studying. Reading. glasses. He can’t be expected to concentrate!)
laughs when their partner trips on something
Neither. Kise gets a little misty-eyed when Kasamatsu stubs his toes, though, which confuses the hell out of Kasamatsu because okay, it hurts like /fuck/ but I’d really like to just get the swears out of my system without your crocodile tears to distract me it’s my fucking toe not yours– except then he realizes that Kise is serious and he really will tear up in sympathy pain over a stubbed toe. The hell is he supposed to do with that???
would drop ice down the back of the other’s shirt as a joke
Kise did because his shoulder devils (he has several) dared him to, and was fully prepared to flee Kanagawa and possibly the country as a result. But then Kasamatsu gave this deep sigh of relief and rolled his shoulders, leaned back with his eyes closed to enjoy the lingering coolness and was like, “You got any more of those?” and Kise is in a different sort of trouble for the rest of the day because he had to watch Senpai cooling himself off with ice cubes. Perhaps he should have factored in that it was mid-July and they were having outdoor practice.
spoils the ending of books/movies
Kise sometimes does it by accident because he gets super-excited about these things. Kasamatsu doesn’t really mind because half the time, the movies are hella predictable anyway and it’s kind of endearing watching Kise work himself into a hand-talkey, grand-gesturing frenzy over something he’s really passionate about.
always posts a picture of the other as their MCM or WCW
Oh god are you kidding me, of course it’s Kise! Kasamatsu is the type of guy who has no clue how attractive he is. Not only is Kise proud as a peacock when he shows off the results from those times he managed to drag Senpai out for a shopping spree (those jeans were a gooood pick, he totally deserves an award for that), he also endlessly rhapsodizes about Senpai’s leg supporters. It’s really a good thing Kasamatsu is the only person on the team who doesn’t use Instagram at all.
eats the last piece of cake in the fridge before the other can have it
Kise wants it but doesn’t eat it because he’s gotta watch his calories, so he tries to push it on Kasamatsu in order to stop it from spreading its evil delicious vibes every time he opens the fridge. Kasamatsu doesn’t want it either – after all, Kise was the one who could not walk past the bakery without grabbing some of their strawberry shortcake – and “what the hell, you don’t think I’ve got a shape to keep in?” – “But senpaaaai it’s not good to let food go to waste” – “I’m not gonna clean up the results of your poor impulse control, no way!” Suffice it to say, the cake doesn’t get eaten, is eventually forgotten, and a week later they have to follow biohazard removal procedures. Yeah.
obnoxiously celebrates Monday Punday every week
Moriyama! Even Kise has taken to groaning whenever he sees the results of the unholy alliance between his Kaijou senpai and Seirin’s Eagle Eye on his phone.
makes loving hack posts on the other’s Facebook/Instagram/Tumblr/Twitter etc
Pff, of course it’s Kise. Kasamatsu has a blog but he rarely uses it and has just left the plain default theme active since he doesn’t really care about that stuff. That’s why Kise takes it upon himself to actually give it a proper theme and a bit of pizzazz – “online appearances are important, Senpai, take it from me” – and Kasamatsu is pleasantly surprised by the tastefully understated music theme Kise comes up with. He pretends he doesn’t see the clickbait creatures Kise snuck into the bottom right corner.
has to beat their partner in every game
Both! Kasamatsu likes to believe he is the mature one, but when the game is on, it is on. He’s a complete fiend at racing videogames, and will actually lord his triumph over Kise for half an hour afterwards, and Kise pouts a lot but secretly likes the way Senpai looks with his victory grin. He gets his revenge when they play one-on-ones on the street court, anyway, though it’s not much of a revenge when all his plans for gloating get derailed by Kasamatsu grabbing him and snogging his tonsils out. (Let’s just say the look of victory on Kise does things to him, too).
keeps their partner up half the night talking about random stuff
Both their sleep schedules get kind of fucked when Kasamatsu goes off to uni. Studying keeps him up on a lot of nights, so Kise stays up to text and synch up his calls with Kasamatsu’s study breaks. Kasamatsu eventually puts his foot down about the late-night calls when he meets up with Kise in person again and Kise practically falls asleep on him every time they sit down somewhere.
It’s hard on both of them, but it has the unexpected side effect of spurring Kise into taking his schoolwork more seriously so he’ll have more free time. Plus, if his grades are good enough, he’ll be able to follow Kasamatsu to his university of choice because I wouldn’t be able to take three more years of this, senpai! I’m even studying algebra! I’m taking on the math demons for you! The math demons with their evil letters and numbers! That should tell you how serious I am senpai stop laughing!
eats too much garlic and tries to kiss their partner anyway
Kise’s unabashed love for onion gratin soup versus his inability to kiss senpai for the rest of the day (on pain of death). Hmmmmmm…
