I've always liked the thought of Hide having contact with people like Touka, telling each other how upset they are or how much they love Kaneki. I also like to cry over the two of them just exchanging memories with him,,
In general, I like the idea of Hide meeting all the friends Kaneki made along the way: everyone at Anteiku, Kaneki’s Anti-Aogiri Squad, etc. Hide cares a lot for Kaneki, and he’d definitely worm his way into all his friends’ hearts, even Nishiki and Touka. Also Banjou and Hide’s conversations would probably get too “we-must-protect-Kaneki” based and Kaneki’s worried they might try to duct tape pillows to him again.
i still get fiercely protective and defensive when people bash on kuroneki. “kaneki is so much better with white hair” “kaneki is only interesting once he gets tortured” “black haired kaneki was weak/had no personality”
Like, he looks like this cocky, shark-tooth grinning, rebellious punk, but in reality he’s actually incredibly loyal and kind?
He tries to save Mutsuki from Serpent, he’s not afraid to kick Urie when he’s being a dick, and he knows instinctively how to protect his Squad members, telling them to hold back when Sasaki takes on Serpent.
