About Tooru’s sibling (HCs to consider for a big brother)

Okay, but I’m sure I’m not the only one in the Haikyuu fandom that doesn’t mind that Tooru has an older brother and not an older sister?? Like consider how many cute things that can come from this, for example:

  • I can see his brother being just as attractive as he is, and I can see Tooru calling his big sis-in-law “nee-chan” and doing typical cheeky Tooru stuff to embarrass his big bro in front of her, like:
  • ”Accidentally” telling the story about the one time when they were younger, when he caught his big bro in his room messing around with his alien mini-figures and ufo playset, despite the fact that his bro had always totally dismissed anything to with something as “dorky” as aliens whenever his classmates would come over and see Tooru’s various alien toys spread out around the house, because he wanted to keep up a “cool” image

And since I mentioned it, let’s talk about younger Tooru + big bro hcs:

  • Showing nee-chan embarrassing childhood photos of his big bro, because isn’t that one of the best things siblings can do to embarrass each other? :’)
  • Or the times when Tooru’s big bro was still dating nee-chan when he would use his little naughty charm and do things like crawl up in her lap and steal kisses from her (and not just on the cheek, but sometimes the lips to make his big bro extra jelly) or hug onto her leg/arm and not let go for several minutes
  • About the last one, it’s possible that little Tooru was slightly jealous of a pretty girl taking away all of his time with HIS big brother, and so he found a way to get the message across; but other times he just thought it was funny to see his big bro flustered and helpless to stop his little antics, since nee-chan would pet and spoil him whenever Tooru clung onto her like this, and after a while he gave up even trying to shoo him away from her

As well as doing other adorable things, like:

  • Peeking into his big brother’s room whenever he’s getting ready for school or to go out with friends, so he can see how the coolest big bro picks and coordinates his outfits, does his hair, etc. and one day his big bro happens to see lil’ Tooru peeking in as he’s in the middle of posing and smiling goofily to himself in the mirror; after this he was super embarrassed and avoided direct eye contact with the little confused dork for the rest of the day and now Tooru copies some of his bro’s same mirror poses as he’s in the mirror getting ready 
  • Exploring his big bro’s room one day looking for a toy or something he misplaced, and coming across his small stash of ero magazines, which little Tooru conveniently remembers about at the table while everyone’s eating dinner and brings up the topic, much to his brother’s embarrassment in which he almost chokes on his food
  • Or the time Tooru walked in on his big bro watching a video rather *cough* inappropriate for children of his age, and now a very flustered big brother has to find some way to answer to his “what was that guy doing to that lady” question rip big bro
  • Trying to cheer his big brother up after he’s had a bad day (maybe a fight with nee-chan or something happening at school, w/e) by drawing silly little pictures of himself and his super coolest brother in the world, (pictures being of them dancing, making silly faces, etc.) and his brother can’t help but laugh; after this, his brother decides he’ll take a walk to clear his mind and invites Tooru to come too; along the way they pass the convenience store, where Tooru uses his puppy eyes to convince his big bro to buy him an ice cream, and of course he gives in, after all this is good thanks towards his little brother for trying to cheer him up
  • One time while video games with his big bro (Tooru is a little bit of a sore loser btw) he begins losing, he starts to pout and pull a few crocodile tears, making his brother feel guilty and as a result, he starts to let him win the next round; Tooru, taking advantage of the situation, instantly begins to smirk at the fact that his brother couldn’t see through his act, and wins the next round, jumping up and shouting “In your face, nii-chan! You fell for it!” as well as other little insults; needless to say, his brother didn’t fall for this tactic again and showed no mercy when playing games with from then on Tooru probably played these games twice as often by himself later on so that he could actually beat his brother without any tactics
  • Telling his big brother whenever he had a new crush in school, seeking advice because of course big brothers know about how to talk to girls, why wouldn’t they? However, this stops soon after because after being complimented on his cuteness by all of his brother’s girl friends, as well as by practically any girl that sees him when they’re out in public, Tooru concludes that he must be a natural chick magnet and relies on his dorky natural charm and boosted confidence to approach any cute girl he sees; this results in his big brother often having to go searching for him whenever he brings Tooru out with him in public, because if he doesn’t keep his eye on him the whole time, the next thing he knows, Tooru will be somewhere flirting with other cute little girls and possibly pretty nee-sans from time to time

And a bonus hc I just thought of including Iwa-chan:

  • Fast-forward to middle school days where the first time Tooru receives one of Iwa-chan’s famous headbutts (possibly for being too hard on himself as usual, saying he’ll never play like the senpai) and he comes home with his nose slightly swollen and red, with little blood crusties underneath; his big brother notices this, and with concern asks him if he got into a fight. Tooru explains that there was no fight, and that Iwa-chan was just bringing him back to his senses after being so negative with himself (although his brother is still convinced that they must’ve had some kind of fight since things ended up getting physical). The next time Tooru invites Iwaizumi over, his brother asks if they’ve made up yet, much to Iwa-chan’s confusion; Tooru turns to Iwaizumi and explains that it was about that particular day at school, and Iwa-chan explains to Tooru’s brother that he occasionally knocks a little sense into him at times, just when he really needs it. Realizing that everything is fine and understanding that this is simply the relationship between his little brother and his best friend, he laughs and before Iwaizumi leaves, he pulls him aside to thank him for taking care of his little brother and keeping him together.

This is my first time doing hcs to be honest, so if these aren’t that good I understand, because normally I literally can’t come up with anything outside of canon on my own, but for some reason it happened just now so I took advantage of the moment to do these, BUT I just hope now that I’ve shown some good in what Furudate has done~

If anybody wants to reblog this/start a new post with continuations of any of these hcs, or new ones based off of these, or even to doodle up a little fanart to any of these, tag me because I’d love to see!

 A/N: So, for me this story has been a whirlwind. I’ve met so many gorgeous human beings because of it. I just wanted to say that I quite honestly love anyone who has said nice things to me as a consequence of this daft thing I wrote half on a whim and half at your encouragement. I know it’s simple, I know there’s not a bunch going on and it’s rather predictable – but I love you all so much for everything. And not to spoiler alert or anything, but the rating has kinda gone up, maybe, sorta… 

I also had a few questions about who I thought Emma’s boss would be fairy tale wise, and while he’s not in Storybrooke, I’ve included his name in this chapter so you can figure out who he is through that handy thing we call google :)

I quit my job this week. 

There were three things that happened within the space of three weeks that Emma would say - with the benefit of hindsight - were probably (definitely) worth noting. Of course, at the time she was none-the-wiser, she was simply the same small girl making the same frightened choices, lost to most people and to herself. She had no clue what she was doing, except that every vein in her body was begging her to scratch the itch that spread through her like pins and needles. 

So, Emma waited.

As she always did when she did this (which she’d done several times, now), waiting for the regret to sink in. A boy had told her once, twisting on a rusty carnival swing, that she would just know when the decision wasn’t the right one; know when an overwhelming feeling of post-adolescent yearning was location specific and not an esoteric longing for somewhere non-particular. Just as Emma would always wait for that answer, for that confirmation, that feeling, the response came back a resounding ‘no’ each and every time.

(Much to Emma’s great disappointment.)

Similarly, that is exactly how it came to her now.

‘No, you will not regret leaving this place’.

But there was something there that wasn’t there before, and there was no denying to herself what was different this time.
