As someone that's following Another what kind of parents do you think the Furuba characters made? Do you have any headcanons? (particularly for Tohru&Kyo, Yuki&Machi, Shigure&Akito and Hatsuharu&Rin)
Hi!! Thanks for the ask anon! To answer your question: yes! I have many, many headcanons.
of the sohmas who were once under the curse feared that the curse
wasn’t really broken when they first found out they were having
children. Everyone of them went through a “I can’t have a child! I could pass on the curse” phase during the pregnancy. Their S.O. had to calm them down.
was probably the most terrified of all the zodiac to having a child.
He’s still pretty traumatized from the events he experienced as a child
and an adolescent, and he was so, so, so scared that he would pass on
his curse to his innocent child.
-It even gave him nightmares. He’d wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night and Tohru would calm him down
was really supportive of him through it all. She knew Hajime was going
to be totally fine and even if he somehow did get possessed by the curse
she and Kyo would love him no matter what. That child was never ever
gonna have the upbringing Kyo had.
-Tohru was unbelievably excited to find out she was pregnant. She cried tears of joy
cried again when she found out they were having a boy and said “I hope
he’s just like Kyo-Kun!” and the thought of a little Kyo running around
the house made her so happy she could burst.
-Kyo was made even more terrified when he found out it was a boy and desperately hoped the child was much more like Tohru in every way
-Kyo was just an anxious mess the entire time
-Kyo was doing everything for Tohru. She couldn’t start a task with Kyo around without him taking it away from her. “Kyo-kun
I can do it-” “Sit down! You’re pregnant! What kind of man would I be
if I let my pregnant wife do the dishes?!” and then he’d furiously wash
-This drove Tohru crazier than anything because she likes working and being busy. That being said, during the third trimester, she didn’t complain about it much lol
-When Tohru’s water broke they both screamed a lot.
-When Tohru’s contractions started and she was in pain, Kyo nearly lost his mind
-She was only three weeks premature, but Kyo was convinced their son was going to be possessed
-Kyo was able to drive at this time so he drove her to the hospital
-His heart was beating SO FAST guys
-It was a relatively easy delivery and Kyo’s heart dropped when he saw the baby handed to Tohru
-As soon Kyo realized the baby wasn’t going to transform, he burst into hacking sobs. SOBS!
could NOT believe how beautiful his wife and child were. He immediately
loved Hajime so, so, so much and promised he would live and die for
-Tohru was so delighted that Hajime looked like Kyo, but that still made Kyo feel weird and nervous
called Shishou pretty immediately and obviously, he ran straight over
since he’s Hajime’s only *real* grandparent. When Kyo showed him Hajime
he quietly said “You’re a grandfather” and everyone was crying.
-Literally, everybody loved Hajime and would die for him
-Kyo and Shishou were SO excited when he was old enough to start martial arts training
-Kyo and Shishou both brag about him being a natural
-Shishou DOTES on him. They love each other sm you guys
is literally the perfect mother. She reads to him. Tells him he’s smart
and kind and wonderful. He’s so supported and loved.
-They’re both SO proud of him because he’s smart and totally going to do big things
-Tohru cried when he left to go to high school at Kaibara. Kyo really misses him too, but he understood why he wanted to go there
-Hajime cried when he left the house on the car ride to Kinu’s house
-I wrote an entire fic on how Hajime found out about the curse (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10688817)
-I’m totally gonna write a fic about Tohru’s pregnancy now fuck
-Yuki was super chill about the pregnancy except for when he first found out and when Machi went into labor
-He worried about the curse coming back, but he was much more sensible about it than Kyo
-Yuki treated her like a princess and Machi let him without complaint
-The hired maids did most of the work because they’re both shit at housework anyway
-Yuki was scared to tell Ayame because…Ayame…
-Ayame flipped the fuck out and said it would be the most beautiful child second only to his precious Hibika (Chizuru hadn’t been born yet, so Mutsuki is actually third lol)
-Ayame dotes on his Nephew obvi
-When Machi found out Mutsuki was shiny like his father “…Will this be okay? No…I’m sure it’s better he’s like his father…” but she foresaw many a girl fighting over him and that he would be the cause of much bullying. The real curse of being a Sohma…
-The whole family is a bunch of spaced out idiots who are also geniuses
-Presented with a diaper…Machi/Yuki were a disaster. Tohru came to help often. They still sucked at it. They’d forget baby powder and stuff, and eventually, the nanny just did it. Yuki’s hella rich so they just did that during the diaper years.
-They were really supportive and loving however, but lacked some serious skills lol
-Likewise, Mutsuki is lacking a serious skill in cleaning haha
-The hired help is constantly -_-
-Machi and Yuki completely spoil Mutsuki, but Yuki was determined to teach him kindness
-Yuki would only get actually mad at Mutsuki if he did something unkind. Mutsuki teased a girl in elementary school and after the talking to his father gave him…NEVER AGAIN! Mutsuki’s naturally kind, but he took the lesson with him for life
-Haru was chill, but excited. Rin was a terrified mess
-Rin was Kyo 2.0 basically
-Haru only freaked out when he found out it was twins
-He freaked out for .2 seconds and then was like “neat…”
-Rin: “I CAN’T BE A MOM IM SO FUCKED UP IM GONNA FUCK EM UP LIKE THERE’S TWO NOT ONE IM GONNA FUCK UP TWO PEOPLE”
Haru: “lol probably”
Rin: “YOU’RE NOT HELPING!”
Haru: “Everyone’s parents fuck them up it’s fiiiiiiine”
Rin: “YOU’RE THE WORST” *freaks out more*
-Haru at some point had to get serious about calming her ass down because it was gonna start affecting the pregnancy
-How the naming conversation went:
Rin: What should we name them?
*literally playing Kingdom Hearts right fucking now* *Stops, then looks
her dead in the eye, completely fucking serious* Riku and Sora.
Rin: …I love it.
-Haru loves KH and he said it as a joke, but then actually really liked it. He thought “Land” and “Sky” for twins was great.
watches Haru play KH and she’s begrudgingly sucked in. She likes Riku
because he’s cool like Haru and she likes Sora because he’s kind like
Haru. She knew Haru was kidding, but kinda loved it and it stuck.
-Rin is the Strict Mom™ and Haru is Fun Dad™
all get along and love each other sm, but Riku is a momma’s boy and
Sora is a daddy’s girl. Rin has a soft spot for Riku because he reminds
her of Haru and Haru has a soft spot for Sora because she reminds him of
Rin (looks wise)
-Haru and Riku can clash because they’re similar in a lot of ways.
-Sora’s just a love bug
-Riku would literally take a bullet for Sora
-Basically Haru and RIn are stupid in love and they have two stupid kids that love them a lot
-He’s literally the best husband/brother/father ever and he loves the women in his life sooooo much he could die
-He cried when he found out his wife was pregnant and just kept crying about it
-He just looks at Mina on the daily and cries about it. He’s a mess.
a world-renowned violinist and basically, he lives his dream every
fucking day because he deserves it and that’s 100% what happened fight me
So, in conclusion, they’re all a bunch of traumatized losers/cinnamon rolls who love their loser children
