A/N- I got two same request for this, I hope both Anon’s like it. Unless you two are secretly one being than I hope you like. Like usual I am sorry the for the delay.
Edward placed the newspaper down on the table with a sad expression. There was a big picture on the front of the paper with a long article advertising the engagement of Prince Roberto and MC. Edward knew they were seeing each other for a while, but he never knew that the two of them were actually serious about each other.
Edward did not know if he should be happy or sad for the amazing news. His dear old friend and colleague was going to get married to an amazing woman, but the woman was the person he loved most in the world.
The rose prince knew he could not be mad at Roberto for the engagement, Edward envied him if anything. Edward knew it was his fault that they were in the predicament they were in now, if only he held onto his love tighter.
“Prince Edward, I w–” Louis began as he entered the secret garden and saw the paper in front of him.
Edward sadly smiled at his butler and said, “did you hear the great news?”
“How strange is that though? The youngest of the six princes is the first to become engaged to get married,” the newscaster exclaimed, “didn’t he just recently turn 18? Now he is starting off his adult life with a fiance. Not just any fiance, a commoner. From what I heard she was the royal designer for the Spencer family. Maybe Prince Wilfred introduced the two of them to each other. The two of them do make a beautiful cou–” Wilfred turned off the television and put down the book he was reading on the table. He stopped reading once he heard MC’s name on the television.
Wilfred knew Glenn and MC were getting close to each other when they discovered they met once before when they were kids. This information was told to him by Roberto, since Wilfred has not spoken to MC since the separation, but Wilfred never once brought up the fact that the two of them were this close.
Wilfred ran his hand through his hair and sighed. He did not know what to do. Losing the woman he loved to a kid did not sit well with Wilfred who knew it was his fault.
Saying that Wilfred regretted what he did was an understatement.
Wilfred knew he should feel happy that MC was happy but he was back to feeling alone and well…
He did not mind the loneliness before MC came, but since she left it felt wrong. Not having MC around felt wrong. Wilfred stood up and headed out of his office to take a walk to clear his mind, which usually never works.
“GLENN! GLENN!” Alan’s voice echoed cheerfully through the halls as he ran toward his confused brother.
“What is it?” Glenn asked as he wondered if their parents had just arrived home.
Alan smiled innocently as he said, “well I was watching TV and there was a special announcement about the princess.” Glenn cringed at the statement. He had avoided thinking about MC since she left the castle, this was surprisingly difficult since Yu was a constant reminder of her.
“That is good” Glenn said as he began to turn around.
“Wait Glenn! Her and Prince Joshua are getting married!” Alan exclaimed, “do you think we will be invited to the wedding? I wanna see princess dress in a wedding dress! She will look pretty!” Glenn froze at the news, as did Yu who was standing in the sidelines watching the ordeal.
“Are you sure that is what you heard?” Yu asked walking up to the young boy. Glenn just stood in shock staring at his young brother.
“Yeah” Alan retorted as his cheek reddened, “I know what I heard. The woman on the TV said Prince Joshua was engaged to the ex Royal Designer of the Casiraghi family… I can be wrong if Joshua is getting married to Monsieur Pierre… Do you think Joshua is getting married to that weird man?”
“No, I do not think so” Yu replied sadly and the two men looked at each other. The woman the both of them loved was getting married to someone else, Yu was used to the idea but Glenn was not. Glenn said something incoherent before leaving the scene.
“GLENN!” Alan yelled as he went to chase after his brother.
Yu stopped him before he could get far, “Prince Glenn needs some time alone to gather his thought… maybe we can go play some games until he is done.” Alan smiled happily and did not argue as he tried to figure out what game to play.
“Did you know?” Roberto asked his butler as he read the ticker announcement on the news. All news medias were overjoyed about the new royal engagement but the usually chipper prince could not feel any worse.
“To be honest I did,”Alberto answered his master as he watched Roberto’s expression change. Alberto should be happy that Roberto has concentrated more on his work since MC left, but the change felt Alberto feeling as depressed as Roberto. The boy he watched grow up always smiling barely smiled anymore. It left Alberto feeling hopeless since he could not do anything to help the prince.
“I hope he treats her well,” Roberto muttered as he turned off the television, “but why Prince Keith? Why not someone like Edward? At least with Edward I know she will be with someone who loves her and–” Roberto could not finish the sentence. He looked down at his hands with a sad expression as Alberto went back to duties. It was not like Roberto did not love MC, he loved her more than anything in the world. Roberto felt that he was not worthy of her anymore. The look on her face from that night haunts him everyday.
The two of them stayed in the room in silence until Alberto left. As Alberto left the room he soon realized in a way Roberto was going to probably start going back to his old self soon. Most likely he will start trying to skip royal engagements and parties again soon. Sadly, Alberto thought, this time it will be for different reasons.
Keith sat in his room with the news on in the background. His blood ran cold throughout his body as his expression paled. He looked as if he saw a ghost or something terrifying. The thing Keith feared was the biggest news story of the day; a royal engagement announcement. It was not just any engagement though.
Keith jumped out of his seat and kicked the coffee table in front of him. His blood that once ran cold was not running hot like fire that refused to be contained. Betrayal was the only thought that ran through his mind. How could he do that to Keith?
“And we are back with coverage on the historical royal announcement,” the female news anchor exclaimed joyfully on the screen, “Prince Edward of Charles just announced his engagement to the royal designer MC. This announcement sounds almost like a fairy tale come true–” The news anchor’s voice was cut off as Keith threw a book at the television screen and breaking the glass screen into dozens of pieces that fell to the ground.
“Why did this have to happen?” Keith yelled at himself as he paced back and forth in is room like a caged lion, “why couldn’t she stay with me? Why choose the goddamn prince of roses over me. I am more of a man than him.” The door was thrown open as Luke ran into the room petrified. He heard the glass shatter from down the hall and dark thoughts overshadowed his previous thoughts. Luke calmed down when he saw an angry looking Keith in one piece but paled when he saw the television.
Luke knew Keith saw the news about Edward and the woman that Keith could never let go.
“Jan?” Joshua asked sadly as he sat in the dining room for breakfast. His butler walked toward him with a curious expression before reading the headline of the paper Joshua was reading. “ROYAL ENGAGEMENT!” the newspaper exclaimed. Under the article title there was a beautiful spread of the engagement announcement of Prince Wilfred and MC.
“Yes sir?” Jan asked ignoring the paper.
Joshua turned to look at his butler, his eyes looking darker than usual, “do you think I ever had a chance of getting MC back in my arms after everything? If I fought for her do you believe she would be here with us and and not planning a marriage with Prince Wilfred?”
“Do you want me to be honest?” Jan asked and Joshua nodded his head, “I do not think she would be as happy here. MC would probably spend a lot of time afraid of you repeating your actions.”
Joshua placed the paper down on the table and stood up from the dining table. Joshua resembled a defeated man.
“I read in some books about men barging into wedding and stealing the bride’s right before they say their ‘I do’ and escaping into the sunset together even after the men had done stupid things. They always seem to have happy ever after kind of stories,” Joshua stated as he walked toward the doorway and turned toward his butler, “do you think that can ever be a reality?” Jan did not know how to answer the prince’s question.
These are my Top Ten Voltage Men!!! This is just in case anyone was wondering and it’s also an excuse to go on about lovely 2D boys, which is never something I would object to…
This was HARD.
10. Kiyoharu Nanahoshi
I feel like Kiyo is pretty much me if I were ever to become 1) a guy and 2) a voltage character. The way he cares for his brother and his dry sense of humour are very familiar…
Oh yeah, and he’s completely gorgeous.
9. Yakov Chernenkov
Don’t mind me, I’m just gonna go ahead and fall in love with a late-release character… His route was beautiful and his resemblance to Elsa was not lost on me.
I wanna brush his hair and then just play with it forever and keep him forever!
8. Kaoru Kirishima
Ahh I’ve always loved Kaoru. That backstory got me right in the feels, and his route was so flipping good, despite his lack of words. His height is perfect, and I’m perfectly happy to be a part of the love triangle with Chiaki…
Also, Tama is a darn lucky cat.
7. Yuma Akagi
So I’m not usually one for buying epilogues, and then epilogues of epilogues, and then whatever else Voltage can release to make us throw more money at these beautiful characters… but for whatever reason, I did just that with Yuma. And despite him calling me a bum or whatever the heck he said… he’s amazing! Seriously, I can’t drink tea without thinking about Yuma!
Ohmigod, I just want to have him.
I have no words, just… he’s perfection. Seriously.
5. Tsumugu Kido
Strawberry-loving, pun-making, Kansai-speaking Tsum Tsum is my source of life. I did not think that I would love him half as much as I do! I feel like we would actually get on stupidly well.
4. Glenn J Casiraghi
His route was amazing. He is amazing. His little brother Alan is amazing, and I love the fact that the MC is older than him - It makes for some great banter.
Also, he’s gorgeous and stubborn and I want one!
3. Chance Valentine
*swoons*… Well there’s mob leader number one, anyway.
By the way, Chance, I forgive you for your absurd behaviour in your brother’s route… call him Jason again and I’ll drop you down to number 4!
My most awaited route, by far. It literally felt like I had waited my entire life for this dork, and then he finally comes along, and once I’m done screaming and dying of happy tears… I’m sobbing because he’s precious and sad and I just wanted to reach through the screen and hug him!
He’s pretty much the dream boyfriend - he doesn’t mind if you gain weight, he’ll make you laugh, he’s beautiful, and he’s a wizard!
1. Soryu Oh
How long have you got? Because I could talk about this gentle mobster for pretty much ever.
I remember first playing KBTBB and thinking ‘God, no thank you - Soryu isn’t really my cup of tea’, and yet, here we are!
I can’t ever get enough of Soryu Oh the lobster, and his character development has been on point. He doesn’t just fit into any old category (childhood friend, joker, gentleman, jerk, whatever), he’s a lot more than just one of those things, and he makes me happy.
His Spying Eye sub story was so good that I wanted to cry, and every route gets better and better. His interactions with his underlings (his children) are amazing and his relationship with the MC, who is the most badass and most relatable MC there is for me, is beautiful and believable.
Gordon gets out of his heavy manual chores on the Island by lying and telling Scott his back has been really hurting. Mother!hen Scott agrees to do them for him, and to not tell their Dad. What will Scott do when he’s hauling around dirt on a shovel and John calls to tell him, amused, that Gordon is skiving off and swimming lengths in the pool instead?
When a meteor hits Thunderbird 5 John is thought dead by his family and Scott has to prepare himself to retrieve a body.
After not seeing each other for three months (Space rotation, swimming trial, more space rotation) Gordon takes Alan on a boat trip as part of brotherly bonding; neither of them expects Alan to be dragged overboard by a giant squid/sea monster.
Diabetic!Scott AU with Scott stealing chocolate biscuits he really shouldn’t have out of the tin while one of his brothers distracts their Grandma.
Baby!Alan toddling around and following his big brother Scotty everywhere. Bonus Points: little Alan takes a tumble off his tricycle and Scott freaks.
John gives a long, low groan, but it’s caused more by the idea that he’s going to have to deal with mother!hen Scott than any pain from his actual injuries. This is why I shouldn’t ever leave Five. He thinks with a grimace.
Five times Virgil had to play emergency doctor for his family and the one time he didn’t.
Gordon upsets himself when he learns the guitar chords to David Bowie’s ‘Major Tom’ as he replaces the lyrics with ‘Major John’.
Young!John calling his family from NASA Space Cadet’s camp.
John was the one Alan called for everything; science homework, friend troubles, complaints about the cafeteria food. He’d called John before he’d even called Dad that time he made the track team. Listening was John’s job, after all. What he was good at. So why couldn’t Alan have told him about the bullying?
When it all goes to hell in a hand basket, who will rescue the rescuers?
One of Tin-Tin/Kayo’s old friends invites himself onto the island. Scott rains down hell upon him after he finds him dubiously cornering a pale-faced Alan as the youngest Tracy comes out of the shower.
There’s a malfunction when Two drops Four’s pod over water, with Gordon and John aboard, that sends them straight to the bottom instead of floating on the surface. With Four stuck down there with them, and the pod not opening, how will Scott and Virgil get them out?
Virgil has been stuck in this lift with Gordon for 5 hours and its driving him nuts.
Out on a rescue the ground gives from under Alan’s feet, sending him falling head over tail down an old, disused well.
Scott is a dog person. Virgil is a cat person. Gordon keeps tropical fish and while John insists that space is no place for pets (he has a cactus with googly eyes up on Five instead) he not-so-secretly has a thing for small birds. Jeff tries to keep an open mind, remembering the tarantula he’d had when he was their age. But then Alan brings home Amanda, the alligator and their father is suddenly regretting his open-mindedness.
One of the boys is temporarily blinded during a rescue.
Gordon develops a habit of pushing his brothers in the pool, he thinks it’s hilarious. The boys think their revenge on him is even more so. Bonus points: John comes down from Five and everyone purposely doesn’t warn him of their brothers latest habit. It’s suddenly a lot less funny when John’s head cracks against the side of the pool and there’s blood in the water.
John decides to use Gordon as his test subject.
Scott can’t hear his communicator over the wind down on the rescue site.
Alan gets kidnapped from his school by a serial murderer and is locked in a crate that is slowly filling with water. The kidnapper demands 20,000 dollars from the famous Jeff Tracy, to be delivered within 24 hours or he won’t give them Alan’s coordinates, and the youngest Tracy will meet a very watery grave.
Virgil has a little black and white striped kitten that likes to sit atop his piano, basking in the sunlight, as he plays. Bonus points: The kitten has the name of a famous composer and is grumpy as hell around any of the other brothers.
Grandma came up with the spectacularly horrible idea of replacing all their coffee with decaf and now Scott is pretty sure they’re all going to die. Penelope has her tea and is perfectly smug and happy to sip it out of her little china cup and watch them all suffer, until Grandma catches wind of it, and switches that out for decaf too. There will be hell to pay.
“Hang on!” Scott screams over the edge and John, with his face scrunched in pain and his fingers slipping off the only thing that’s stopping him plummeting god knows how far into the darkness below, can only shout back; “What the bloody hell do you think I’m doing?!? Throwing a party?” Scott grabs for his wrist, just as John’s fingers fail him, and John feels the sharp snap and pop and grind of bone in his shoulder as it dislocates when his fall is abruptly halted.
The brothers morning wake up routines. Scott wakes early; the RAF ingrained deeply in his sleeping patterns, and is jogging on the beach by 7am. Virgil is hell on Earth to try and get out of bed before 1pm. John’s sleep cycles are often thrown out up on ‘Five, and he’s unpredictable. Gordon is up and in the pool by nine. Alan has to be plied with hot coffee and sugary cereal if you want to see him before 10.
Alan blames his desire to sail through space on John. When John was twelve years old and super close to his newest baby brother, little Alan used to beg John to take him stargazing. They’d go every time John was home between school and space cadet camp, and they’d stay in a little tent and toast marshmallows over a campfire while they waited for darkness to descend. They’d stay out, just the two of them, under the stars, and Alan sits in John’s lap and makes up funny stories about all the constellations that John can name and John tells him all about his dreams to become an astronaut, just like their Daddy. Which is when Alan decides he wants to be an astronaut too (and fly cool things like spaceships) so he and his big brother can always watch the stars together.
I’m still WAITING FOR POKEMON GO TO BE RELEASED IN SINGAPORE, so have some Pokemon Go BMP headcanons!! :D I was going to work on this Soryu fic I have in mind, but this headcanon just wouldn’t go away…
Below the cut are some Prince-specific headcanons.
Team Mystic: Joshua, Wilfred
Team Valor: Keith, Glenn
Team Instinct: Roberto, Edward
Some extra headcanons:
The residence of the royal family in each kingdom (Dres Van Manor, Philip Chateau, Liberty Manse, Oriens Palace, Villa Altaria, Charles Castle) is a gym.
The princes are usually the gym leader of their residence, although on the off chance that someone had taken over it, their butler is usually there to take it right back for them…
Having said that, the butlers are on the same team as their prince, but some did so out of loyalty; if not for their prince, Yu would have picked Mystic, and Claude would have picked Valor.
Nobel Michel is not a gym since it is considered holy/sacred ground (and they can’t risk trespassers), but the nearby public attractions contain a ton of PokeStops - partially because dear Mike requested it.
There are a lot of players in each respective kingdom who chose the same team as their prince simply because they wanted to be on the same team as them.
Joshua and Keith are the only two princes who try to outdo each other at Pokemon Go; they would constantly try to steal gyms from each other whenever they visit each other’s kingdom.
I didn’t include them at the front but if you’re still reading - Zain would be Team Mystic, Yakov would be Team Valor, and Mike would be Team Instinct!
