When the show toured in Hyogo prefecture, his parents and his relatives and old friends from school came to see it, and it reminded him of when he was a student. Back then, in his friend group he was the leader of messing around, so when they saw him on stage as the cool Kuroo, they were all very surprised.
Shouri’s mom was the one to bring all his relatives and friends, as she’s gone to see him every time. He describes her as “funky” as she’s the type to cosplay with her gym buddies for Halloween or Christmas and then dance in-costume. That’s why he introduces her to his actor friends saying, “My mom is a cosplayer.”
Takato’s mom and Shouri’s mom spent time together backstage in the dressing rooms, and the first time they met, Shouri’s mom was wearing a mini-skirt. This seems to have left a very strong impression on Takato according to Shouri, but he still thinks Takato’s relationship with his mom is that of mother and son.
The interviewer clearly knew her subject well and asked Shouri what foods he enjoyed eating as they toured all the different cities. In this entire interview, this is his longest answer. Ultimately, Fukuoka was his “food paradise.” Everyone told him he was gonna get fat because he ate so much.
This winter, Shouri’s new production will have him performing on Christmas day, which is a new experience for him. Christmas being a couple’s holiday in Japan, he says his work will be his date essentially.
For 2018, as much as possible, he wants to try a wider variety of roles and even try some vocal training as well. He mentions he’d really love to try playing a yankee character.
Shouri likes fortune telling and going to get his fortune told. He believes all the good fortunes and ignores all the bad ones. He was told he’d have no troubles in his 30th year, that he’d be on track to becoming a star in the entertainment world and also on-track for getting married. Shouri said he loves children and he’d love to quickly give his mother grandchildren, but that he has not even 1% plans to get married currently, even though back in high school he thought he’d already be married by 23.
I saw a drawing by @hvit-ravn (I love their art so much and the way they draw human anatomy is astounding to me. Plus, their art of Kíliel is what inspired me to draw them more often. *throws self into the garbage*) and immediately, I had the idea to do Kíliel. And what’s better than family feels? Almost nothing. So here, have (a very pregnant) Tauriel (again) and Kíli with their babes, Eliel and Gilion. I always imagined Eliel being the spit and image of Tauriel, and Gilion the same way with Kíli. The personalities, though… that’s a different story ;)
I just want to say thank you to those who have said such nice comments about my art! I love all y’all. I’ve been getting messages and it’s just making my life a little brighter. I don’t normally do this, but if anyone has any requests, send them to me! I could always use the ideas!
Also, I might be writing a fic about Kíliel, including them having a little family. But I’m on the fence about it. Thoughts?
Mama Kogane is a total sweetheart for her son and dreamworks can kiss my ass otherwise.
Thought he was the most precious thing in the fucking universe once she got a proper look at him.
He yawned once and she swore anyone who laid a hand on him would die.
He blepped and she swore on her life she would destroy the universe and then herself if one little hair on his head was harmed ever.
She just loves how much of a chunky monkey her boy is????
Mama Kogane: He’s so soft??? And squishy??? How is he supposed to defend himself???
Papa Kogane: That’s why he has us
Mama Kogane: I would kill a man for this child…is that a normal feeling when one has a child? To want to kill those that even look at them wrong?
Papa Kogane: Ehhh….something like that, yeah
Keith doesn’t know how to rollover yet so she’ll lay on her side next to him with a blanket spread out beneath them and just play with him by waving her fingers carefully above him.
She finds it hilarious how he can eat his own foot.
Mama Kogane: He just chews on it! Without a care in the world!
Papa Kogane just watches them and can’t help laughing at the pure look of awe in her eyes whenever she looks at Keith.
Keith was never much of a crier, he just stood up/sat up in his crib and stared at his parents hoping they knew it was time for him to eat.
Papa Kogane: *Waking up* …aren’t you going to feed him?
Mama Kogane:*laying next to him and staring right back at Keith* Is that what he wants? I thought he was challenging me to what you humans call a staring contest. I feel a bit foolish now, I’ve lost three times.
When Keith gets messy eating she’ll give him a “bath”
Papa Kogane: That’s not how we clean babies
Mama Kogane:*licking the food from Keith’s face and hair with Keith giggling madly* That’s how I clean my baby. Besides, he doesn’t like the water much.
Papa Kogane: Just give him here, he needs a proper bath.
She passes Keith off to him and waits for a total of ten minutes.
There’s deafening screaming that has her wincing and alot of splashing.
Papa Kogane comes back soaked and looking like he wants to just lay down and sleep for days.
Papa Kogane:*handing Keith back to her* You can give him a bath from now on.
Mama Kogane doesn’t know how anything about human culture or how they learn so she and Keith learn together.
They both watch children’s shows together and will stay infront of the tv for hours. She usually has him in her lap or laid back against her stomach when they’re watching.
She plays with the educational toys along with Keith. (Their favorites are the alphabet blocks)
They both yell out the answer when the character on screen asks them about something.
Mama Kogane: Does this child not know what starts with the letter M? Does she have the IQ of a Haruvan Freeber????
Papa Kogane: It’s to help the kids learn, like you’re doing as well, also I have no idea what that is.
Papa Kogane has to buy twice as much baby food because they run out of it so quick.
He came home once to see both Mama and Keith eating a jar of it on the floor, applesauce allover their faces.
Mama Kogane: *holding the jar of pureed applesauce out* You want some? It’s good.
