Some would say
one would grow bored after a while, but oddly enough, Ryuugazaki Rei, devoted
make-up artist, never got tired of making people presentable for the camera.
Make-up was an art form and no one could convince him otherwise. Their models were
beautiful without make-up, yes, of course, but adding a little color here and
there, along with some brushstrokes, their features would be highlighted and
could be proudly represented to the world.
high school, Rei had always thought he’d become a scientist, a biologist or
maybe even a librarian until he came across this one photo in a beauty
magazine. It was a before and after picture of a woman who had undergone a
so-called “make over” and Rei remembered instantly falling in love with
the concept of make-up. She was radiating with confidence, her eyes were
sparkling and looked absolutely gorgeous with that pink shine on her
that, Rei practically delved into this world and found himself drowning in it.
There were so many videos on YouTube, articles, books, stores, products, and people who
were more than willing to help him become a pro himself. It was a bit awkward
to ask the girls at school what kind of brand of foundation they used, but they
were usually open about it and at some point, Rei was the one giving advice to
a handful of people.
Except… to that
one guy who had been sitting a few tables away from him. The one who was always
skipping around, doodling on his desk, smiling at everyone and laughing out
loud whenever Rei embarrassed himself.
His high school
never had a proper conversation except for some polite small-talk because they
happened to take the same train to school. Rei was too socially awkward to
start a conversation so he decided not to while Nagisa was the most social
person he had ever seen in his life and was not afraid to talk to anyone, including him. Sometimes they’d talk for more
than five minutes, which was basically Nagisa rambling about a new anime he had
come across and Rei listening to every word, secretly loving the way Nagisa
moved his hands in rapid motions, trying really hard to describe everything.
both fulfilling and unfulfilling. Just listening to him was not enough and Rei wished he
had had the balls to approach him, but every time he wanted
to, he’d see Nagisa hanging out with a couple of senpais and Rei would
instantly turn around and sneak away because those senpais looked very intimidating.
And so Rei stuck
to watching him every now and then during class, enjoying his presence and
accepting that he had succumbed to something as silly as having a crush on a
… Right, he had
been drifting off and quickly apologized with a bow to photographer Matsuoka
Rin who was sending him his infamous glares. Couldn’t exactly blame him, since
Rei often daydreamed about stuff (“stuff” being Hazuki Nagisa) for a good
fifteen minutes until he’d hear distant yelling.
He jogged over to
the male model Rin was currently taking photos of, reached for his hip bag,
which contained about ten different brushes and powders and started touching up
his make-up. It had become such a standard routine for him so Rei barely had to
think while he swept the coated brushes over the man’s cheeks and forehead with
In the beginning
he was pretty awkward around their models, especially since they often did
shoots for bathing suit magazines, but he got used to it after a while. The
female models were always very nice to him, smiling shyly and sometimes even
asking him if he was single, while the male models merely acted polite and
didn’t pay that much attention to him.
This one was no
exception. Just did as he was instructed, turning his head to the side and
holding still while Rei blended out his contours.
When he was done,
he excused himself and went back to his assigned spot, which was right behind
Rin, so he was within earshot.
Not that that
mattered, though, because his mind started to wander off again. For some reason
he was particularly distracted today and let himself become fully absorbed into
his own thoughts as the continuous clicks and flashes were eventually drowned
everyone. Thank you!”
Rei jumped up
because Rin had casually shouted the words right next to him, probably to make
sure he would hear them, and quickly adjusted his tie before he bowed deeply
and thanked everyone for their hard work.
It wasn’t long
before Rei had cleaned up his little vanity table, thanked all the models he
had worked with today and ended up talking to Rin and the rest of their team
about their new project next week.
Tuesday we’ll be shooting for Free! Weekly and we’ll be working with one of their
new models. It’s our only project for that day, but according to the editor,
that model’s a handful to work with,” Rin explained and played a bit with the
straps around his camera. “Oh, well, I guess we’ll see. Nothing we can’t
loudly, bowed and left. Rei stayed behind as usual to chat with Rin for a bit before
they got ready to leave. Even though Rei acted like a daydreamer from time to
time, the two of them got along pretty well and often stayed behind to chat or
get a cup of coffee together.
“Why is this
model a handful to work with? I’m actually kind of curious now,” Rei said and
slung his bag over his shoulder, adjusting his glasses while he was at it.
answered with a shrug. “According to the editor he was super energetic or
something and bounced all over the place during his interview. Meh, whatever,
we’ll figure something out. He gave me the dude’s portfolio so I’ll go check
that out tonight. Find his good sides and shit.”
“What’s his name?
I can do a quick background check,” Rei inquired and already got out his
smartphone, ready to open his Google app.
Rin threw his
head back with a bark of laughter. “Go ahead, you nerd. His name is Hazuki.
Dear Nonnie, thank you so much for suggesting this. I had no idea how much I needed Rex posed like a shoujo protagonist in my life until I started drawing it. I think I giggled the entire time. :’D Pose ref here.

ok but imagine grillby comes to visit gaster at work one day, like he takes the day off at his pub and travels to gaster’s lab to see him. gaster’s really happy and has a lot of fun showing grillby around and telling him about their work. also, he enjoys telling his colleagues about grillby and grillby’s. “the food is great, it’s a wonderful atmosphere, and there’s always a lovely fire.” grillby is like, “but we don’t have a fireplace…” after a few seconds of gaster grinning at him, he realizes what gaster had meant and blushes bright blue while a puff of smoke kinda billows up from his flame.
