baseball heroes

Random HC #10 (Continuation of #4 - #9)

Reasons?!

Robbie stares at the hero. The words sink in very slowly at first, but then the meaning hits him like a baseball, thrown by the hero himself and he winces again, when Sportacus’ sad eyes meet his own. He opens his mouth, but nothing comes out at first. The other is still looking at him, obviously not so sure anymore, himself, about what to say next. “…Just to make sure, I actually…get that right now…” Robbie chews his lower lip “…You stayed in LazyTown…not because the kids asked you to do so but…because you couldn’t return home…without ME… Did I understand that correctly?” The hero nods weakly “…Of course, I also liked the idea of staying. The kids are great and EVERYBODY here is so nice and caring…” he gives the villain a light nod, signalling that HE also was included in the strongly emphasized word “…But if they had not asked me to stay…then my airship and I would’ve been homeless, that’s right.”
“So in other words… I, the guy who wanted you to leave town so badly, am actually the main reason why you stayed!?”
“In many ways. Yes,” he gives Robbie a soft smile. At once, this strange feeling in his stomach grows heavier again and he quickly lowers his eyes and mumbles “…Have you really NEVER considered to follow this order after all?…”
“No.”
“Never ever?”
“No, Robbie. Not even once. Not even the first second, we met. Whatever it is, the elders would do with you for punishment, you would NOT deserve it!” Sportacus’ eyes grow sad again and even a little uneasy. “…And…what would happen to YOU if you DID return WITHOUT me one day?…” he swallows hard, feeling nervous at the mere thought of Sportacus getting actually punished or hurt, just because he intends on protecting his enemy. “I’m…not sure…” a wry smile appears on Sportacus’ face and he blushes a little, starting to play with his fingers, his voice low now “…I can’t recall a case where anybody ever dared to do so…”
“Are you…scared?…” Robbie’s voice is barely more than a whisper and a part of him - the forced villainous part - tells him to mock the hero, but the much bigger, softer part of him feels a pang of guilt and actual sympathy for the other. Sportacus just looks at him for a moment, then he shrugs weakly “…A little maybe… But what would bother me much more then, would be the fear that they’d send someone new to capture you then…”
“So you were…actually serious?! You will never even try to return home again because you…fear for my…safety?…” Robbie’s voice has gotten lower and lower and is hardly more than an unbelieving whisper at the end. Now, Sportacus’ gaze lightens up again and he gives him a happy, comforting smile “Yes!”
“But…don’t you miss…home?…” Robbie starts to feel even stranger now and his head is slightly spinning. Another pause. “…I do… Sometimes… Especially at night, I miss the beautiful light of our sky…” his voice trails off and his eyes take on a dreamy expression. And the villain feels even worse. It’s ridiculous! He wants Sportaflop out of town, but is actually the reason why he has barely any other option than to STAY. And he’s the villain of this town and at the same time, he feels horribly guilty for making the hero sad and miss home… It’s too much for him to progress right now… Sportacus shakes his head, forcing himself to return from his memories back to the present. When he looks at Robbie again, his expression becomes worried again “Robbie, do you feel well? You look quite pale and shaky…”
“Of course, I feel well, Sportaflop!” stonewalls the other at once and turns his head to look away, his fingers digging even harder into the edge of the wooden bench now “It’s just…quite an amount of information, at once and I… I need to think about this in quiet…in my lair again… So!” he pushes himself up from the bench “If you’re so kind to excuse me n-” the last part of the sentence gets stuck in his throat when he suddenly gets all dizzy, his knees give way underneath him and the last thing he hears before blacking out completely is Sportacus’ terrified call “Robbie!!!”

OKOKOK so I’m working on a fic for @lcli but I’m having a lot of Feelings that I need to get off my chest so have a semi headcanon-dump for Tomadashi Childhood Best Friends!AU (no spoilers though hehe):

  • they grow up in Japan and Tadashi and GoGo always walk to the metro together
  • GoGo copies off his homework on the ride to school because come on Tadashi I’m your Best Friend I don’t have time for this
  • Tadashi puts up a fight for like five seconds but always gives in
  • he’s the one who coins the nickname GoGo Tomago because she always steals the eggs from the bento his mom packs because idk she just cooks them better 
  • chalk fights during classroom clean up duty! rooftop shenanigans! lmao just throw all the cliches in there
  • when they’re 12 Tadashi’s parents die in a car accident :///
  • GoGo bikes to his house and sits up with him the night after the funeral, but things are awkwardly tense and after a while Tadashi is just like, “I’m sorry, GoGo, I really appreciate you being here for me but…I need to be alone now”
  • so GoGo gives him some space but one day turns into another and then a few days later she decides to break the silence and check up on him
  • but it turns out that in that time Aunt Cass went ahead and flew Hiro and Tadashi back to the States because they’re going to be moving in with her since she’s their only other family so GoGo pulls up in front of an empty house
  • GoGo tries calling Tadashi but he has a new number now so ://
  • time passes and then a year later she gets an email from Tadashi
  • cue emails going back and forth for the next few years as they grow up; it drops off every now and then but they always pick back up
  • 5 years later it’s the summer before senior year and Tadashi emails GoGo: good news! I’m thinking of coming to Japan for the summer! 
  • GoGo offers to let him stay at her place because her parents still remember the awkward gangly boy with the overlarge ears but GoGo meets him at the airport and is like WTF do they feed you in America you’re so tall? (‘oh no he’s hot now’ D:)
  • Tadashi’s Japanese is a bit accented now since he doesn’t get to speak much of it back in the U.S. but his grammar is still intact because they corresponded in Japanese
  • cue a month of awkwardly trying to share the same living space and figuring out how to deal now that there’s not a computer screen between them
  • childhood friends who reconnect years later and have to navigate their changing relationship while all this history simmers under the surface is my lifeblood okay just leT mE LIVE
Magic Hat

So, I was looking into getting Tadashi’s hat made for myself, and I didn’t know which color pattern I wanted, because in the books the N is red and SF is gold

But in the movie the colors are switched

BUT THEN… I keep watching and WHABAM!!!

THE N IS RED!!!!!!!!

And then when Tadashi comes back….

The colors switch once more

Only to switch again at the very very end…

Needless to say, my research did nothing to help in deciding which color pattern I want… Maybe I should just get both? lol
