- Kaneki buying his child a bunny hairclip similar to the one Touka had as a kid. When he spots Touka staring at it often, he decides to buy another two - one for himself and one for his wife - so that, as a family, they could all match.
- Hide having insecurities about his voice, his tone coming out raspy and his words garbled, but Touka and Kaneki treating him no differently and reassuring him that they would always think he’s fine just the way he is. Slowly but surely, Hide starts humming along to some of the songs he’d enjoyed listening to with Kaneki as a teenager more often. The feat is aided by touken baby sitting in his lap, gleefully patting his cheeks, and clapping along
with him bringing a smile to his face.
- Hide stealthily warning his best friend’s child not to touch their
chin when they’re hiding something because their mother will be able to figure it
out. Kaneki is puzzled, still not realizing his own telltale movement, but touken child heeds the tip.
Sometimes they forget though, and are in awe when, just as uncle Hide mentioned,
Touka is able to tell right away
brewing Hide a cup of coffee and teaching his child how to draw the same cat
latte art he had once made for his friend
- Shuu telling Yomo about the method he used to explain how
babies are made to Naki, which the older male files away for a later date. When touken child asks him the question many years in the future he tries
using said method but finds he’s terrible with molding clay. Touken child nods as if they understand but also walks away in confusion and decides not to bring it up again. (They eventually find out at the appropriate
time through some of their father’s books)
convincing touken child to show their mother the birds in the nest outside their house. When Touka runs away, touken
child is left confused but Hinami brightens at the memory, and even Uncle Ayato slips up and grins a little.
Some headcanons that fall into the AU/ canon-divergent category:
- Arata being in an incoherent state yet, when his grandchild is
born and cries out, he smiles and thinks about how they sound just like Touka. The first time touken baby grips Arata’s finger he falls silent,
stares, then sheds tears and when the baby follows suit, Touka clings to them
both. Kaneki is left awkwardly
trying to give hugs to all of them for
comfort and even approaches Ayato in an attempt to get him to help out
-Touka bringing the baby around and Arata struggling to get
better bit by bit for his grandchild.
-:Naki surviving and having a soft spot for the touken baby, so much so that he asks Tsukiyama to make a tiny white suit outfit for them, dubbing them an honorary member of the White Suits. Not to be left out, Shousei, the tallest of the bunch, finds he enjoys lifting the small child up onto his shoulders which has the baby squealing in excitement since, just like their mother and her side of the family, they like places that are high up
Lords Reactions when MC ask-What’s the funniest thing that happened in your childhood?
I tried but… OK HONESTLY MOST OF THE LORDS HAVE TERRIBLE CHILDHOODS IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. I think Nobunaga by far had the happiest childhood. Yukimura did okay too, I guess, considering he blames himself for his mother’s death. Wow.
Lords reacting to being asked about something funny that happened during childhood
Nobunaga: …nothing. NOTHING FUNNY EVER HAPPENED. Don’t you dare ask anyone else. Mitsuhide: A cat once snuck into my bed while I was asleep. It sat on my face. Saizo: wouldn’t you like to know :) Masamune: …………Shigezane wet the bed until he was 8. Kojuro: A cat once chased me up a tree. I thought I was safe, but then I remembered. Cats climb trees. Inuchiyo: You. You happened.
Can we please have more modern headcanons or an ieyasu fic?? Thank you!!
Hi nonny! I think by modern headcanons you mean how would surprise bjs go down (heh), right? I hope so. A couple Ieyasu stories are forthcoming (HEH I can’t stop myself), so I’m going with the HCs for you, hope that’s okay. Under a cut!
“Mom he doesn’t want any, okay?” Hide held his face in his hands, elbows on the table, unable to physically bring himself to look at his mother at the moment.
“Oh, I’m sorry, I just think it’s a bit strange to come to dinner, and have already eaten before hand is all!” The sound of her tapping her plate with her fork was getting annoying. The metal clacked against glass, punctuating each word with underlying, and barely concealed aggression.
Hide cringed, closing his eyes as he sighed heavily, shoulders slumping as he curled over his own plate of barely touched food. Her tone was far too sweet, passive aggressive, nosy as always as she poked around at things Hide really wished she wouldn’t.
The hand that slipped over his thigh, hot through the thin fabric of his dress pants, surprised him. Strong, nimble fingers squeezed his knee, thumb soothingly massaging circles into the side of his pant leg. Dark amber eyes peeked out from under his hands, head turning slightly to side-eye Kaneki as the ghoul smiled kindly at his mother, despite her horrible attitude all evening.
“It’s alright Hide.”
Hide squinted, pupils narrowed as he watched Kaneki reach over the table to the small woven basket of dinner buns, plucking one from few that still remained.
“She’s right. I’ve sat here long enough chatting up a storm with your father, right?” Kaneki’s visible eye closed, calmly setting the bun down on the plate before taking his hand back from Hide, bringing it up to tear the bun in two. “I’m a little hungry after all it seems.”
i'm flipping tables because SLBP new event is about the lords and their family. the event doesn't include SHINGEN!!! shingen's main route talked a little about his brother and father, it would be a great opportunity to go into depth about shingen's family but NOPE!!! SMH VOLTAGE. it just makes me sad😭
Flipping tables like this, friend? HAHA. Look alive, dear anon, because I completely agree with you. I know I’m super extra for Saizo in my fangirling, but in all seriousness I like all of them equally from a creative standpoint for what they manage to provide us; the other six lords explore themes, aspects, issues and developments we don’t see with the more ‘popular’ lords. It’s a damn shame, because just like you say, characters like Shingen, or Ieyasu, or even freaking Mitsunari have the potential for incredibly heartfelt stories that ruminate on what it means for them to have something as special as a family/wife. It goes doubly for the lords with tragic family histories.
i just need hide and kaneki to meet so bad. the need burns brighter than my desire to have a future.
ishida-sensei, before i die please. i will not, NOT, give up until it has been confirmed to me that he is actually dead, which he is not.
DO YOU KNOW HOW WONDERFUL IT WOULD BE?
KANEKI WOULDN’T BE LONELY
EVERYONE NEEDS SUNLIGHT AND KANEKI HAS BEEN MISSING HIS SUN
LIKE, I JUST WANT HIDE TO SHOW UP AT THE LAB AND MAKE FUN OF KANEKI’s WAXED HAIR AND HIS WHITE SUIT AND GREETS KANEKI LIKE IT’S NOTHING, LIKE HE DIDN’T JUST BREAK INTO A CCG LAB, OR LIKE KANEKI IS NOT UNDER ATTACK, HE JUST GREETS HIM LIKE IT’S THEY PLANNED TO MEET UP OR SOME SHIT AND I JUST
Imagine Hide having two twin sisters who like teasing Hide friendship with Kaneki.
Kaneki coming over and the twins bombard him with questions. Kaneki is fond of them, too. Kaneki brings candy for them, too. They steal most of Kaneki’s attention from Hide until Hide finally pulls him away to study. Kaneki waves bye and heads to Hide’s room. Hide’s sisters make kissy faces and noises, squishing their cheeks and directing them to Hide. Hide attempts to shush them and whines to his mom, and she says, “Girls, stop teasing your brother and his crush on Ken.” And Hide groans and looks at his dad for help. His dad pats his back and says, “Leave the door open,” and goes back watching TV. Hide groans even louder and sulks to his room but not before his mom calls him and gives him and thumbs up and and wink. Hide covers his blushing face and runs to his room.
