You guys I think I found the best kid to play Damian:
His name is Ayman Amin, he’s a Singer/Actor that made his start on the Arabic version of “The Voice: Kids” this year (so he’s still not that famous), he speak fluent english, he’s the same age as Damian, the same hight and most importantly he’s the same ETHNICITY as Damian, what more can you ask for?
Bruce finding out about Ra’s Al Ghul harassing Tim the whole Red Robin series:
After Bruce came back from being lost in time, he and the rest of the Batfamily are sitting in the batcave to go over everything he missed, when Tim casually mentions how he took down the League of Assassins. Bruce of course freaks out.
“Wait, you mean to tell me you took down Ra’s Al Ghul by yourself? How’d you manage that?"
"Well I mean, he trusted me enough to let me close to his stuff after working with him for a while, so-"
"Wait wait wait you worked with Ra’s? Tim wtf he sucks I thought I raised you better than this"
"No duh, I wasn’t actually working for him, just making him think I was. After all, he had already been harassing me for weeks about being his new heir and all, and then after I dismantled his operation he sent some creepy lady to rape me because he wanted a new kid since Damian’s on our side. But anyways when we fought I didn’t care about winning I just needed to distract him enough and he kind of kicked me out a window but then Dick saved me before I went splat all over the pavement and then they finally started believing me about you being alive so it’s all good now."
And Tim just smiles as Bruce scowls. After a minute he gets up, grabbing his coat.
"Uh, Bruce? Where ya going?"
Jason looks over and cranes his neck to see Bruce grabbing a bat and a couple hammers. "Oh yeah he’s gonna kill Ra’s. HAVE FUN BRUCE!"
And then Bruce stalks out of the house, about to have a little chat with Ra’s to show him what happens when you mess with one of his kids.
Talia and Ra’s make no secret of the fact that they’re disappointed she’s a girl. She has all of Damian’s training and an inferiority streak a mile wide. She’s not revealed to Bruce because she’s not seen as valuable leverage, and she has no interest in her father because she sees him as weak. Until Cassandra defects. She sees that as betrayal and asks to be the one to take her down but when Bruce Wayne announces he’s adopting Cass she snaps. She’s doesn’t just try to kill Tim: she succeeds. Damia* becomes Cass’ unhinged nemesis.
Medium case scenario:
Talia wants Ra’s to accept Damia as his heir. When he refuses she starts questioning her own internalized misogyny. She decides to make Damia her heir and the League is split into two different factions (like it was so cohesive before). Damia is dangerous but less egotistical than Damian because she doesn’t get the insane hypermasculine primogeniture shit from Ra’s. She occupies a lot of moral grey area like her mother but perhaps ultimately has a similar arc to Damian, being a part of the Batfam, but on her own terms.
Best case scenario:
Talia sees a daughter as useless in her father’s crusade and in her attempts to manipulate Bruce and drops Damia on the manor doorstep as an infant. Bruce gives her as normal a childhood as possible. Alfred strategically refuses to do night feedings and diaper changes at his age and Bruce is forced to step back from the cowl (because they can’t really bring in a stranger to nanny and everyone they know already leads a full double life). The family thinks this is brilliant because Bruce was getting older and was riddled with injuries. Also they love Damia and spoil her rotten.
Anyway, those were my morning commute thoughts.
*Not tied to that name, it seemed like convenient shorthand. Also, it means “untamed” whereas Damian seems to mean “one who tames” or at least that’s what cursory googling tells me.
Imagine Au'Ra wearing bands of flowers around their horns during spring festivals. The Xaela would perhaps wear exotic flowers while the Raen would wear the flowers that only tend to grow in their secluded area.
Oo! Oo! What if the more dominant ones in a Xaela relationship fetch super rare blossoms for their significant other as a courting thing? Like climb the side of a mountain or fight off terrifying beasts to pluck the flowers that only grow in their lair. Then they need to carefully braid them into the bands to be worn.
Language of flowers!!! A delicate, nature-y, but ultimately dangerous and adventurous thing for Xaela to do.
There could be a status as Flower Prince/Princess for the recipient of the most rare, and perfectly preserved flowerbands for Xaela.
The Raen instead of judging based on flower rarity could be more interested in the complexity of the weaving and arrangement of the blossoms.
Healing mages could use their magic to keep the flowers fresh for the duration of the festival. Alchemists could also mix up things for flower preservation.
Man, I’m not even into RPing but this would be totally awesome! XD I can already picture so many ways this could be used as an rp story device. I blame all the Balmung players I follow on Tumblr.
Hi! I'd just like to preface this by saying that I've /never submitted an ask before/, and I apologize in advance if I missed anything/did this wrong lol. Also, love your blog! Anyways; I was wondering if you could do a short scenario of the Eight Generals (not necessarily all of them, 'cause of the character limit. Just the ones who'd make sense.) playing Cards Against Humanity? t̶o̶t̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶ ̶b̶e̶c̶a̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶I̶ ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶r̶e̶c̶e̶n̶t̶l̶y̶ ̶p̶l̶a̶y̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶i̶t̶. Just thought it'd be fun.
Hello!! I feel so honored to be the first person you’ve submitted anything to, thank you so much!! Thank you for keeping the character limit in mind, I really appreciate it! Unfortunately I do have a rule saying that I won’t do canon-character- only scenarios, but I will do canon-character-only headcanons! Therefore, I won’t be doing a scenario but because I love this request and don’t want to give you nothing for your first request, I will be doing headcanons for this! Hope you don’t mind! <3
Eight Generals playing Cards Against Humanity
Sharrkan’s favorite white card is either “A pizza guy who fucked up.” or “Sharks with legs.”
One time Pisti played the white card “Auschwitz” to the black card “Why can’t I sleep at night?” and Spartos audibly gasped in horror.
Yamraiha, Pisti, Sharrkan, and Ja’far repeatedly play the worst, most disgusting cards you can think of. They usually win the rounds.
Hinahoho has to ask what some of the cards are because he genuinely has no idea. (”What’s ‘teabagged’ mean?“)
Drakon has the worst poker face and the moment his card is played he starts laughing and slapping the table. He also does this whenever he pulls a card he finds amusing. Every time.
It’s not often that Masrur plays with the whole gang, but when he does, he wins. Nine times out ten, he wins.
If Hinahoho asks Spartos what a card means there is a high likelihood that Spartos will have no clue either.
Ja’far and Pisti will trade cards under the table sometimes.
Sharrkan will actively try to guess which card is Yamraiha’s and not pick it when it’s his turn to pull the black card. If he does he hits the table and yells “Dammit!” while Yam is laughing her ass off.
The one who plays the most cards that are just one-word or two-word cards (i.e. “Balls.” , “Evil.” , “The Rapture.” , “The Government.”) is Masrur. His hand always just consists of them. Nobody knows how.
Spartos has won the game a total of three times. He doesn’t know whether he should call that an accomplishment or be ashamed about the whole thing.
Ja’far tends to get too real with the game. For example: Hinahoho pulls the black card “_____ is a slippery slope that leads to ______” and Ja’far played “Fake news” and “Denying the holocaust.”
Ja’far will also play cards that don’t really make sense but kind of do. (Black card: “What’s making things awkward in the sauna?” White card: “Joe Biden.”)
The generals will not allow Sinbad because they know he would win.
Hello! I'm not trying to get on your nerves or be disrespectful or anything but isn't Damian only a quarter Arab? Since Talia is half Arab and half Chinese? So Damian is half white, a quarter Arab and a quarter Chinese? I completely get that you want more representation of other races in comics! And who better to start with than the son of BATMAN. I'm just seriously asking because I was curious. I thought that this was true and I wanted to see if it was. No disrespect. Have a lovely day :)
Sadly that’s actually a very big misconception in this fandom. I did make a (table/chart) in the past explaining Damian’s ethnicity if you want to know more.
Basically Ra’s is an Arab bedouin man that came from the Arabian Peninsula, and he identify as such, there’s a very small chance he might have some distance Chinese in him from one of his ancestors but nothing has been confirmed yet. And there’s Talia’s mom Melisande, at the beginning she was solely Arab too like Ra’s, however in the “Birth of the Demon” comic (Which by the way isn’t even canon) She has been retconned and has been described as being mixed, half Arab and half Chinese.
So now it’s depends on if you want to take the BoTD comic into consideration or not, if you do, then Talia would be 75% Arab and 25% Chinese (Not 50% each, like a lot of people think). However since the comic isn’t canon, then Talia can also be counted as being 100% Arab. So either way she would still have more Arab in her than Chinese, so would Damian.
I know some of you might read this and think that I’m being biased but honestly it’s very frustrating when people exaggerate the al Ghul’s Chinese linage. It has been mentioned ONCE in an out-of-canon-comic that Damian’s grandmother was half Chinese, and if you take that into consideration, that would mean that Damian is only 1/8 Chinese, and even then because it’s not canon it’s debatable if he even has any in him in the first place. Let’s not mention that Melisande has never met either Damian or Talia (Well she did meet Talia for like 5 minutes and then died afterwards) And that both Damian and Talia have been raised in Arabic cultures/countries with Ra’s since they were born, and that they are mostly ethnically Arab and have been raised as such.
So again, I’m not trying to take anything from anybody, but it’s just very frustrating when people exaggerate and dismiss Damian being Arab by saying false things like “Damian is also Chinese!” or “Damian is both Arab and Chinese”, when in reality he barely has any Chinese in him, and it’s not even canon. Just refer to him as Arab people, no need to add to call him Chinese/part Chinese.
Do you have any headcannons about the way Damian grew up? We know a little about it but there are a lot of blank spaces... And any headcannons about how it still effects him now?
yes… but…. it’s not very happy, basically whenever I think of Damian’s childhood I end up back here
I know that it’s not canon but Ra’s is still Ra’s and I think Damian’s childhood wouldn’t be much different from that. Systematic physical and emotional abuse, I mean it explains his total resistance to letting people in, his need to be in charge and in control, and his need to be self reliant. Also why he pushes people away when they get close to him. Basically I believe that Damian comes from a very grim place.
Oh !! Do you have any headcanons for Cherosie maybe? 🍒🌹❣️
-for reasons cheryl doesn’t understand yet, she starts spending more time with josie mccoy. maybe it’s because tina and ginger are gone, maybe it’s because valerie and melody started dating, but the amount of time she’s started to spend in josie’s music room should concern her. and yet, it doesn’t
-cheryl nearly runs when josie comes to her in tears after her father did god knows what to her self esteem. she isn’t used to this role. she doesn’t even think she knows how to be nurturing. but josie steps into her arms and cheryl finds herself whispering empty threats to her dad the way she knows she’d want josie to do for her. when josie finally calms down, josie kisses her so hard cheryl’s afraid her lips might bruise
-a few months later and they’re in josie’s room, lips buzzing from all the kissing. she lets josie undress her. her hands shake as she goes to undress josie, too. “you know it’s okay if you’ve never done this before,” josie says. this time when they kiss it’s with softness that makes cheryl’s head spin. “i haven’t done anything like this before either.”
-the first time cheryl tells her is when she’s leaving on tour with the cats. cheryl should be supportive but her head keep telling her that she won’t come back. tears prick at her eyes but she won’t let them fall. “i love you,” cheryl says freely; the first time since jason died. “and now you’ll leave me, too.”
josie shakes her head. “cheryl,” josie’s eyes shrine with tears, too. “i promise i’ll be back.”
-it’s almost five months before she sees her again. josie’s gone for the summer and first quarter, too. they call, they text, but cheryl still feels like she’ll wake up and josie will have been violently ripped away from her.
-there’s commotion at school that day. exasperated teachers try to reel their students back in but it’s useless. people talk, celebrities and the pussycats and josie and-
she pretends like she didn’t wear a pussycats’ tee shirt to school that day. she avoids veronica’s knowing eyes like the plague. she considers sending an acid remark her way but she knows that she’ll only be building a case against herself.
-when the bell that signals the end of the day does finally let out, cheryl is the first out of her chair. she sends a text to the vixens, practice is canceled, and she knows none of them will question it. she weaves through hoards of students, not bothering to stop when they call out to her. and then she sees it: the shine of metallic cat ears. five months of frustration melt away in the five easy steps cheryl takes to reach josie.
“there’s my girl,” josie says.
“you came back,” cheryl says back.
“i told you i would.”
-josie cups cheryl’s cheeks and she kisses her, a kiss that cheryl thinks is well worth the wait. she hears the faint snapping of pictures, sees the flashes of lights behind her lids, knows that their kiss will be plastered on social media before it’s even over. but that doesn’t matter because josie is here. josie came back and her lips are even softer than cheryl remembers.
Will, growing up in Redmont, has never seen the ocean. (I expect that’s the case, Redmont is a healthy distance from the coast since on the maps Flanagan’s drawn.) He’s heard stories of it, and he’s even looked at a small watercolor by an artist who was passing through the fief. Occasionally, experienced travelers like the Baron or Sir Rodney would tell the castle servants and Ward children what it was like and their audience always listened wide-eyed, fully aware that these stories would likely be as close as they would ever get to experiencing the sea for themselves. Sir Rodney has said that there’s nothing more majestic in all the world. Will thinks that he would like to see that.
As an apprentice under Halt, Will sees more of Araluen in one year than most peasants see in their lives. He travels to the Gathering Ground with Halt, and in book one he notices the smell of salt in the air, but that’s as close as he gets until the end of book two.
The first time Will ever sees the ocean, he’s been captured by Skandians. He doesn’t have time to marvel at the sight of it as he and Evanlyn are dragged onto the beach. He’s inwardly too panicked to notice the unique smell, the shifting of sand under his feet, the mesmerizing way the waves crash against the coast again and again. And by the time Halt’s too late and he’s sailing away, Will’s too miserable to care, and the thing he’d yearned to see his entire life holds no interest for him.
(Until he recovers somewhat a few hours later and regains a technical interest in the proceedings, but for purposes of angst that’s not really important.)
I sent in a matchup request yesterday, but I realized you guys probably have a lot of those to do;;so here's a scenario request! if you're too busy, you can drop my requests !! Also, if you need any help with the account, I could help! That's just if you want, though ;; Anyway the scenario;; Leo, Nazuna, Hinata, Koga, and Ritsu going with their s/o, who hates drops and is afraid of heights, to Disneyland? You could use any amusement park if it's easier for you! Thanks!
aaah what a cute
request i love it so much;;;; i did use disneyland ! we have one here
in france~ wouldn’t it be a great date spot ? there’s also one in
tokyo, which is the one i mentioned for conveniency, since it’s
also i changed it from a scenario to headcanons but i made it extra detailed, i hope you’ll enjoy it regardless ! also, congrats
hinata for making it on the requested characters list !! - mod
When it comes to
dates, Nazuna’s usually pretty chill. Well, that’s what you thought.
He’ll take care of organizing everything, will meet you a bit late so
you two can sleep more and even has neck pillows ready for the train
journey. Turns out he was the only one to use them and sleep on the
way to the park, as you were a bit too excited reading his notes
about what ride to absolutely do and deciphering the annotated map he
hand drew. What even is chill about this guy ? How much time did he
spend planning all that ?
As much as he was
trying to play it cool, the excitement finally kicked in when you two
entered the park, as the music, decor and overall atmosphere did their
job. He couldn’t help but giggle, eyes wide as he was taking in the
view, dragging you by the arm to go to his favorite spots. You only
stopped to take a map, which proved a bit more useful than his
hand-drawn one, as it was actually readable.
His favorite area
in the park was Fantasyland. There is not a single ride there you
didn’t go to. You suspected he had a well hidden romantic side when
he insisted for you two to try the teacups, and briefly wondered if
he’d read shojo manga. He loved the “It’s a small world”
boat ride so much you did it four times in a single day. That damned
song would not get out of your head for the entire day. Nazuna hummed
it often, and you sure teased him a lot about it. “Wh-What
are you laughing at ?! We did that ride four times, it’s normal the
song would get stuck in my head !”
As much as he was
drooling every time you passed by a candy store, he never stopped by
to buy anything. When you practically had to drag him off the window
of a pastry shop, you suggest you two went in and bought a snack, but
he declined, shaking his head. “I already reserved in a cute
restaurant, so we’ll come back later, okay ? I really wanted to eat
there, too !”. Of course, when snack time came, the two of you
stopped to eat some ice cream, and you were surprised to learn how
big a sweet tooth he has.
You tried to visit
other areas of the park and do some other things, but he didn’t seem
really at-ease. Especially when watching the big, scary
rollercoasters. As much as you didn’t like the idea of trying one, a
park employee mistook the two of you watching the rollercoaster
anxiously for hesitating to join the queue, and gave you a big smile,
saying there wasn’t much wait and it wasn’t really scary. Nazuna
actually jumped up a bit when he heard him, and hastily replied. “No,
thyanks, we’ll do jyust fine !” Taking your hand in his, Nazuna
dragged you off the area, and he seemed a bit pale to you. When you
two stopped to sit for a while, he apologized, biting his lip
nervously. “Sorry, maybe you wanted to try that one out… It’s
just, I’m not very good with heights, so…”. You hugged him,
secretly relieved to hear that, and he had a huge smile on his face
when you told him you were the same. “Really ? You should have
told me sooner, then !”
You couldn’t help
but tease him, everytime you came across a ride he didn’t seem to
like very much. When you nudged his shoulder and teasingly offered to
try the haunted house, he froze and pouted, which prompted you to
laugh. “Are you kidding me ? I’d hyave a heardattack if we tried
somvinglikthat ! Dyou wanme to die ?! ”. Well, no haunted house
He loved hunting
after the Disney characters though. Hunting is the word. His camera
in hand, adoping a preying posture, eyes squinted to try and see them
in the distance… You had to bit your lip to muffle a little laugh,
he almost looked like a tiny rabbit trying to hunt a prey ten times
his size. Catching you dead in the act, he shot you a nasty glare but
resumed his character hunting. You earned yourself quite a few
pictures with characters this way, and promised yourself to teasure
them dearly : he had a huge, bright smile on his face on each of
When the day came
to an end, he insisted to stop and buy souvenirs. He took one for
each of the members of Ra*bits, as well as friends from his class. As
you were also shopping for gifts for your relatives and other
friends, he came by excitedly, showing you cute matching bracelets.
“Do you want to buy them ? Wouldn’t they look cute ?”. So
you came out of the stores, bags a bit heavier and wallets lighter,
wearing matching bracelets. He wouldn’t stop holding your hand and
smiling, after that.
refused to go home before watching the final night show and camped on
a well-situated bench moments before, so as to have a nice spot to
see it. You were treated to a nap on his lap though. Touch his legs a
bit too much and he’ll squeal before hitting you mercilessly.
When it was finally
time for the fireworks show, he was looking at the sky in awe, mouth
open in a big smile. You tried to concentrate on the show as well,
but it was so hard when he was here, face right next to yours, and
being so damn adorable. The bright, colored light reflected in his
eyes as he was watching it intently. You couldn’t really help it :
before you knew it, your lips were pressed on his. Unexpectedly hard.
He looked surprised for a moment, but eventually kissed back, even
closing his eyes. The two of you kissed under the fireworks for a
moment, before resuming watching them, cuddling.
As you made your
way back to the train station, your legs hurt and you were exhausted,
but Nazuna was still hyper, chippering happily about what he liked
the most. As much as you would have liked to rest a little during the
train journey back home, he insisted on showing you all the pictures
he’d taken, including quite a few of you when you were not looking.
He yawned a lot but kept going, adding long comments to each picture,
no matter how unsignificant it was. At some point, he just stopped
talking altogether, and you realized he’d suddenly fallen asleep on
your shoulder. Smiling, you then rested your head on his own to get a
bit of rest.
When the train
stopped home, sleeping beauty still wasn’t up. You tried to shake his
shoulder gently, but he just mumbled and turned back to sleep. So you
opted for the only remaining solution : bridal carrying him home.
Fortunately, he’s very light and small, so it wasn’t too hard. He
only woke up when you were almost home already, and couldn’t help but
flail helplessly and involuntarily kick you in the face. “P-Pervert
! Whadareya doing to me ?! Put me back !”. He apologized when
you explained the situation to him, but was still eyeing you warily.
decided to sleep over at your place, as he was too exhausted to make
it back to his own house. When he caught the excited glimmer in your
eyes, he sighed. “Don’t expect you can do anything weird to me !
It’s just more convenient, okay ?” Turns out he was the snuggle
bunny and hugged you tight all night long.
Dating Leo is like
being on a never-ending emotional roller coaster. He’s so
unpredictable, you have stopped trying to understand his thought
process a long time ago.
So you (almost)
weren’t surprised when, upon waking up someday, you found yourself
very close to Leo’s face. Turns out he came at your place unnoticed,
and was holding a sharpie suspiciously close to your cheek. When
asked what exactly he was intending to do there, he just let out his
signature laugh. “I thought you were never going to wake up !
You’d better hurry up, ‘cause we’re going to Disneyland today !”.
You just stared at him, dumbstruck. “Heey, you heard me ? I said
hurry up, ‘cause we’re going to-” Yes, yes, alright. Time for a
You thought he’d
taken care of everything already, and were relaxing during the train
ride, thinking about the nice things to come. That is, until he
tilted his head and asked “By the way, how do you get the
tickets ? I wasn’t really sure, so I decided to leave it out to you.”
Damn it. Here goes one more line on the very long list of “Reasons
Why Leo Tsukinaga Can’t Be Trusted”. And the list is long
already. The rest of the train ride was spent mercilessly answering
no every single time he whined and asked if you were at Disneyland
yet. “Why can’t it be closer ? I thought it was closer !”
Yes, well, if he had prepared a bit… Well, that’s how you like him.
The two of you had
to queue a bit to buy the tickets once you were there, cue Leo getting
impatient. “What are you buying those for ? We don’t need them,
let’s just go have fun.“ Without tickets ? He stared at you for
a moment before blinking. "I thought you took care of the
tickets already, why didn’t you buy them before ?” Okay, time to
breathe, long and slow. One more line on the long “no trusting
Once you entered
the park, Leo’s baby mode activated. He was practically running
everywhere, touching everything and pointing at all the rides he
wanted to try. You couldn’t help but laugh at his excitement. It was
serious trouble matching his pace, but at least you got to try out
many different rides.
He loved everything
he tried, but was never completely satisfied. “You know, if I
was the one in charge here, I’d put way more aliens.”
Fortunately, he’s not the one in charge, you teasingly answered back.
He laughed, launching his “special double poke attack” at
you. “Are you saying aliens are no fun ? I’ll arrange for you to
be abducted once too, it’s really fun !” As people were staring
at the two of you weirdly, you decided it was high time to move.
You kept the best
for the end of the day : the space and technology oriented area of
the park. He was practically bouncing in excitement, and literally
dragged you to try everything. He absolutely loved the Buzz Lightyear
ride, and spent more time firing his “laser gun” at you
than at the targets, so you had to try it out a second time, to be
able to compete properly. He won, and with that score of his, you
wondered how fast his trigger-finger could be.
He also dragged you
to all of the space-related rides, including Space Mountain. Now, you
really didn’t want to try that one out, but he wouldn’t budge. “I
heard it’s all inside, you won’t see anything ! It should be fine,
c'mon, let’s try it !” You explained you just didn’t really like
rollercoasters, which prompted him to use his ultimate weapon. The
puppy eyes. “Are you gonna let me go in there all alone… ?
What if I get lost ? What if the rocket really goes into space, and I
get abducted again ?” Okay, fine, but just once. And you’ll be
allowed to grip at his arm if you’re scared.
When you came out
of the ride, you were pale-faced, while he was laughing ecstatically.
“Wasn’t that awesome ?! I wanna try it aga–” No. One more
line on the “Leo can’t be trusted” list. He really didn’t
mind all the marks you left on his arm, and you even shouted louder
than him, which says something given how… vocal he is during rides.
To apologize, he
brought you to the arcades, and you had some time to calm down a bit.
Now, the ride wasn’t that terrible, but you definitely wouldn’t do it
again. Once was enough sensations for your entire life. He didn’t try
to drag you into anything you wouldn’t like after that, instead
asking you what you would like to try.
ridiculous amounts of space-themed merchandise. Including a light
saber of his own, which he used to hit you with when he’d get bored
during queues. Why did you even let him buy that ? It was just asking
for trouble, really. Also, he wore the ridiculous hat he bought
during the remainder of the day. You were considering forgetting him
somewhere and running away on your own.
When he found out
that the park sold different pop-corn flavours depending on the area
you were in, he immediately wanted to try them all. Caramel,
milk-chocolate, salt and honey weren’t too bad, but curry, black
pepper and soy sauce&butter ? Leo loved them, on the other hand,
and you thought this park would be a good place to bring Kanata…
Expect him to find
out last minute you also have access to the second park, which is
sea-themed. “Oooh, I wanna go, hurry up ! You’re not running
fast enough ! I’m gonna ditch you there !”. You really should
have forgotten him in a corner when you had the chance.
Until the very last
minute, your day was spent running from an area in one park to one
area in the other park, as Leo couldn’t decide what he wanted to do
next. And the worst is, he didn’t even let you sleep at all during
the train ride back home. He was shaking you by the shoulders,
telling you about his day in great detail even though you were there
“…. and the
soy sauce popcorn was soooooo good ! And look at that lightsaber I
bought ! Hyah !” Ow. That hurt. You tiredly massaged your head,
wondering when he would stop talking. Or hitting you with this thing,
for that matter. “And the space stuff was aaawesome ! I’m sure I
heard aliens talking to me back then !” Yeah, sure. As he
continued blabbering excitedly, you decided you were going to take
things in hand and make him shut up yourself. By kissing him. His
mouth was still-wide open, and he stared at you wide-eyed for a
moment before he eagerly kissed back. There. He wouldn’t make as much
He insisted to
bring you back home, but really, it was only to get more kisses. As
you tucked in your bed after a nice shower, sighing luxuriously at
the thought of not having to get up again until very late the next
day, you heard a loud “bong” against your window. Of
course, you had to get up to see what happened, and Leo was there, on
the street, smiling widely. “I forgot the way home, can I crash
in for the night ?” You sighed. What about his phone ? He could
just have called you instead of throwing rocks at your window. “No
battery left ! So, can I sleep with you ?” He can, but he better
not try anything. And that’s one more line on the “i’m
definitely NOT trusting Leo again” list.
He did try anyway.
And plopped on top of you, already asleep. All in all,
you thought that was a sweet day. Leo was a bit… strange, but you
loved him just as he was. You gently kissed his forehead before
falling asleep in your turn.
That is, until you
learned the hard way he snores loudly. And tries to strangle people
he sleeps with.
You’d been having a
bunch of dates with Hinata already, as he loves going downtown on
weekends. But he once said he wanted to try something a bit bigger,
like an amusement park. He was really excited when you proposed
Disneyland, and you spent days planning together your date there. He really
wanted to bring Yuta along, and you didn’t mind, but he eventually
decided it was a date and as such you had to be by yourselves. Yuta
had something planned with Shinobu on that day, anyway, and didn’t
want to turn him down. You suspected Hinata was really glad about
During the train
ride to get there, you were already playfully arguing about what to
try first, and had to solve the issue with a good old
rock-paper-scissors match. He won, and was very pleased about that
fact, laughing brightly and disturbing everyone else around you. When
the elderly woman opposite you gave you the nastiest glare, just as
you were about to kiss Hinata, you decided instead to quietly cuddle
and watch the changing landscape, joking about spotting Sleeping
Beauty’s castle’s tower in the distance.
Hinata wouldn’t let
go of your hand once in the park, and when he caught the slightly
surprised look on your face, he smiled and whispered in your ear : “I
want everyone to know we’re a couple~”. What can you answer to
that ? Seeing you flustered, he laughed and kissed your cheek
Adventureland. The jungle feeling and music, the feeling of
excitement and the exploration… That was just his thing. Now,
you’re not sure there’s even something he disliked in the first
place, but he loved exploring that huge tree the most. He carefully
avoided any “suspended bridge” part though, anxious about
you not feeling well.
When he saw some of
the roller coasters, his eyes lit up with excitement, and you knew he
really, really wanted to try them out… but he didn’t,
preferring to stay with you. “Besides, we can just come back
with more friends, can’t we ? That way I’ll get to try it out, and
you won’t be by yourself !” He winked playfully, but you didn’t
know how serious he was : he’d already talked about this with Yuta
and his first-year friends, and they all agreed to the idea. Oh well.
Guess you’ll be coming back soon !
You couldn’t really
say no to him when he wanted to try out the splash mountain ride,
though. It didn’t seem that high, so you agreed. Turns out there was
a wicked drop at the end, which got your clothes soaking wet. Hinata’s too, but he didn’t seem to mind. Even less when he noticed your top
was now see-through. He lent you his jacket while it dried, but you
earned yourself quite a few gropes and kisses. What a closet pervert
No real lunch was
planned : instead, you just stopped for a snack break every once in a
while. Hinata wanted to try out all the sweets the park had to offer
: from fresh fruit to ice cream to cupcakes, and of course he bought
candy every time he wanted some, and offered some to you. Expect him
to spoon-feed you, “accidentally” getting some cream on
your cheek to be able to lick it up. He also lets you do the same
with him, which quicky turns into a make-out session in the middle of
afternoon, you went to the sea-themed park. You loved every second
of it, and Hinata too. He carefully avoided any roller coaster-type
ride, and the two of you had a lot of fun regardless, mainly
exploring the zone. He insisted to take selfies with you at some of
his favorite locations, to send them to his brother and friends.
The two of you had
planned a rather long shopping break : Hinata wanted to buy a bit of
everything. He always came back with something weird and a
mischevious glint in his eye, asking you if you thought Yuta would
like that. He eventually bought the weirdest cap he could find for
his brother, and cute matching headbands for the two of you.
After the two of you tried your favorite rides, it was already nighttime. While you were
there, you decided to stay for the final firework show, and Hinata
gently held your hand in his while watching it. When he spoke, you
could barely hear him through all the noise. “You know, I
thought bringing my brother would be more fun, but… I think I loved
having such a nice date with you. We should have stayed for the night
too.” He winked at you, and you teasingly answered you could
still have a great night at your own place, to which he excitedly
nodded. Seems like the evening would go on for a bit longer.
He tried to keep
his hands off you during the train ride back home, but couldn’t quite
restrain himself and peppered your face with kisses, telling you how
great you were and how lucky he was to have you for himself. He didn’t
hesitate one second to spend the night at your place, quickly texting
Yuta to tell him he wouldn’t come home until the next day. “My
brother’s not gonna let me live it down… but it’s worth it.”
And sure enough, it
was worth it. The two of you fell asleep snuggled against each other,
and seeing Hinata look so happy made you happy in turn. You probably
wouldn’t forget this day anytime soon…
“Huh ? Ya
wanna go to Disneyland ?” Koga didn’t seem really convinced when
you suggested the idea. “Seems like the kinda stuff Kaoru would
like. That means it probably sucks ass.” Well, that’s one way to
put it. You insisted to show him pictures and videos of the park,
insisting on the more adventurous side of it. He eventually accepted,
maybe because his UNDEAD bandmates talked him into it. Or maybe
because he just wanted to try and wasn’t really honest with himself.
He let you take
care of the planning and organization part, and showing up on time at
the train station was his greatest effort of the day. Even though it
was really early, you noticed the care he’d put in his outfit and
accessories. It certainly looked way more… punk than the cutesy
atmosphere of the park, but you noticed with a chuckle he certainly
had anticipated this day greatly. “What are ya laughin’ at ?
Want me to bite ya so it’ll pass ?” No thanks, mister Wolf.
You’ll be fine without him biting.
He tried to keep it
cool while in the park, even adopting a blasé persona you’d never
seen before. “Oh, great. Look at all these fuckin’ kids. Remind
me why 'twas a good idea, aga–” Curious, you raised your head
from the map you were studying. Why had he stopped, all of a sudden ?
You caught him looking at the most wicked rollercoaster of the park
with bright eyes. Oh, shucks.
You tried your best
to deter him from going to that direction of the park, proposing a
lot of more inoffensive rides. He let you drag him all the way to
Fantasyland, but looked even grumpier than usual, which says a lot.
He decidedly didn’t fit the atmosphere, and practically groaned when
passing the “It’s a small world” ride. Right. No more
His grumpy airs
quickly disappeared when you brought him to the old west
American-themed part of the park. “Yeah, that’s more like it !
This just smells of rock and roll, baby. Hurry up, I wanna try that.”
Cue him dragging you around, holding your wrist.
He especially liked
the shooting gallery, and you’re pretty sure he spent a little
fortune in that. But then again, the sight of him smirking proudly, a
rifle in hand isn’t exactly the worst… He even insisted to take a
“wild” selfie with you. “I’m gonna show the damn
vampire how much fun I’m havin’ while he’s stuck at home sleepin’
like the old geezer he is.” Well, if that makes him happy…
When he passed by
the Big Thunder Mountain ride, there was no discussing. He was
already queueing, with you. You tried to explain you weren’t good
with heights, but he groaned. “You took me to all that kiddy
stuff, now it’s my turn to pick. And this is a real ride,
perfect for a manly man like me !” Damn.
As you were pretty
nervous while the park employee checked you were well installed, Koga
chuckled. “Ya scared ? Better be. This looks like some damn
monster. But, hey : I’m with you, 'kay ?” Whatever that was
supposed to mean, you felt a bit reassured. Especially since his hand
was tightly holding yours. It was only going to be a short unpleasant
moment, and it made him so happy…
regretted your bravado when the wagon slowly brought you higher and
higher. You felt yourself squealing, seeing the rest of the park look
smaller and smaller under you… As the wagon almost reached its
peak, you were closing your eyes. Except Koga prevented you to.
“Y'can close your eyes as much as you want after that, but
before…” When he kissed you, your heart dropped. You would
have kissed him too, if that damn wagon hadn’t started its freakingly
fast descent into hell, and you couldn’t help but scream as your
heart dropped a second time. Koga was laughing loudly, letting out a
howl or a “Hell yeah !” every once in a while. Guess
someone’s having fun.
You were in for a
bench break after that one, while Koga studied the map, eyes
squinted. “What the hell ? Why is there either stuff for kids
or for girls here ?” When you felt a bit better, the two of you
went to eat at a barbecue-themed restaurant. Yeah, Koga was the one
to choose. And judging how much he ate, he loved it.
After lunch, you
were in for peaceful rides only. “But…” Peaceful. Rides.
He groaned, but you took him to the Pirates of the Carribean ride, to
show him great rides can be pretty calm. He loved that one so much,
you did it three times total.
Then you stopped to
shop for souvenirs, looking for things for your relatives. Koga was
looking for something too. “Heh, I’m gonna buy the lamest
thing for the vampire geezer… What the fuck ?! Look at the damn
prices !” Yep, he found out. He still bought the cheapest thing
he could find for Rei, that is, a pink fluffy scrunchie.
You, on the other
hand, decided to buy Koga a pirate hat, as it definitely fits his
image. He turned unexpectedly bashful when he saw it. “Hey, ya
didn’t have to buy me somethin’… i’m right here with you, it’s
enough for me.” Still, you wanted him to have that hat. No buts.
You even sneakily took a picture of him wearing it to send it to the
other UNDEAD members. Rei was quick to answer, saying at least Koga
and pirates shared the crass language. Which is not wrong.
You then went on to
visit the second park. Koga’s eyes glinted suspiciously when he saw
the infamous Tower of Terror elevator ride. No, bad doggie. You said
peaceful rides only. “C'mon, how can you not wanna try it ?!” There’s no way in hell you’re going on that. Koga groaned but
followed you along as you both explored that new park.
Before you knew it,
you were queuing with him for the Indiana Jones roller coaster. What
? What happened ? Koga was looking very pleased with himself and his
newly-discovered persuasion powers. Well, as long as it was the last
one… Besides it was supposed to be quick, right ? You’d probably be
fine… but when you got out,
disheveled and trembling, you were sure of one thing : you weren’t
fine. Never again. Koga, on the other hand, was laughing loudly, in a
sound suspiciously similar to a bark. “Hey, didn’t ya love it ?”
No, certainly not. But as it was the last one, and he’d agreed you
would be allowed to pick all of the remaining rides…
You took an evil
pleasure in forcing Koga to do the girliest and most ridiculous rides
in the park. And he wasn’t even allowed to complain. That was all
part of the deal. Another embarassing picture of Koga playing in a
playground for kids was taken and sent immediately to Rei, who was
very pleased with this.
As he was very
determined to run away after all that humiliation, you decided to
calm him down by exploring the jungle-themed parts of the park with him,
climbing everywhere you could climb without getting chewed on by
employees. And even on areas where you could (and did) get chewed on.
Once he was tired of climbing everywhere and running around, he
suggested you go back home. He doesn’t “give a damn about the
fuckin’ fireworks”, apparently.
He brought you back
to his place, under the excuse that “ya were sleepy so I carried
ya to my room and well there’s only one bed”. Even though his
sincerity was dubious at best, you didn’t really care, even glad for
this opportunity to sleep close to him. All in all, that was a very
good day and even he wouldn’t disagree.
interested in the whole Disneyland idea, but cringed when you
explained he would have to wake up early. “Can’t we just go
there the afternoon… ?” Well… yeah, you could, but that
would be missing out on a lot of things. He sighed, visibly annoyed.
“How early ?” 8 o'clock would be a good time to leave,
since you had to take the train to go there. He grimaced, his entire
face sour. “What about leaving at ten… ?” You ultimately
decided to leave at 9, ignoring his pained groans.
On the d-day, Ritsu
most certainly wasn’t happy. You went to his place to personally wake
him up, as you sure didn’t trust his phone’ alarm clock. Or Ritsu
himself, for that matter. As much as he loved the good morning
kisses, he really disliked the walk to the station. “Are we
really going to walk all day… I can’t do that, I’m going to die.
The heat is already too much…” Well, maybe he was exaggerating
a bit. You hoped.
As soon as he
plopped in his seat in the train, he started snoring. You were
looking at him, eyes wide in disbelief, as you noticed he brought a
blanket, pillows and even a face mask. So that’s why his bag was so
heavy… You had serious trouble waking him up once you were
arrived, and briefly considered buying an airhorn for the next time.
As much as you were
excited about finally being there, he just groggily wandered down the
park’s streets, yawning and rubbing his eyes. You took him on a few
cute rides, holding his hand, but he was dozing off on your shoulder.
Well, that won’t do. As you were thinking about what to do next, he
unexpectedly woke up long enough to mumble something. “Just go
see a show or whatever at one of the theaters. I’ll nap and you can
still enjoy yourself.”
Which is exactly
what you did. The actors and dancers were really good, and you found
yourself clapping enthusiastically at the end. You even had some new
ideas for a Dreamfest… you’d have to talk to the student council
about them. Ritsu looked considerably better once you two got out of
the theater, but was still tired. “Let’s go get something to
eat… well, you can eat. I’ll just sleep some more.”
As you ordered what
striked your fancy on the menu, Ritsu was mumbling adorably in his
sleep, next to you. The waitress seemed a bit surprised and asked if
he wanted something, but you politely declined. He’d get hungry soon
enough. You took some cute pictures of your meal, sending them to
your friends, and enjoyed seeing the Disney characters in the
restaurant, but were feeling a bit lonely. You briefly wondered if
you should have brought Rei or Mao along, but Ritsu woke up soon
after, inquiring about your meal.
Once Mr. Sleepyhead
was up, the date was finally about to truly begin. Besides, you had
one secret trick up your sleeve. The fizzy drink. You bought one can
of Ritsu’s favorite flavor and offered it to him, saying he was
probably thirsty. He gladly accepted, even kissing you on the cheek
as a reward. Soon after, the sugar was kicking in and he was
decidedly more enthusiastic about this date, despite being up and
about while the sun was still up.
Ritsu hated the
walking part. He even suggested you carry him from one ride to the
other, but when he eyed the train going around the park, you knew he
had something in his mind. For every change of areas, he’d insist to
take that cute little train instead of walking, and you even got to
make one full circle around the park when he refused to get out,
instead preferring to stay seated and kiss you for a while.
He loved your
favorite rides, and as the afternoon was progressing, he was more and
more enthusiastic, even demanding you stopped at some ride he wanted
to try. Fantasyland was his favorite area, surprisingly, but he
didn’t mind the others.
When the two of you
passed by the haunted house, you saw Ritsu’s eyes glint in a
particular way. Oh well, there was no escaping this one. He was
strangely thrilled about it, commenting about the monsters you got to
see. “Well, after all, there’s no better place for a vampire
like me…” You even thought he would be happy to move in that
haunted mansion. Probably…
You insisted to
visit Sleeping Beauty’s castle, and took a lot of pictures of him
inside it. He was the true sleeping beauty, after all. Rei loved
them, judging by his almost-instant, typo-filled answer. Guess he
still wasn’t used to handling his phone…
Ritsu was amused by
all the silly merchandise he found in the stores, and insisted to buy
you a cute plushie as a gift. You did the same, picking the character
you thought he’d find the cutest. As you saw he was ready to walk out
of the store, you asked if he wasn’t going to buy anything for his
brother. “What brother ? Are you sure you’re okay ?” ….
Well. You decided to sneakily buy something for poor Rei anyway.
He loved the
parade, but absolutely refused to watch it standing : you had to pick
a nice seated spot beforehand and wait until it was time for it. He
certainly didn’t mind, munching on a pastry he bought a bit earlier.
Amused, you asked him if he liked it ; you wanted to try it out
yourself. “It’s good, but I’d like your blood better.” You
were just left staring at him. Where did that come from, all of a
sudden ? He just snickered and winked.
When you tried
taking him to the sea-themed park, he didn’t seem particularly
awestruck. That is, until he spotted the gondola ride. Before you
knew it, you were having a nice little tour of the water-based park,
while he was snuggling against you and kissing your neck. He even
left a bite.
biting, Ritsu would always get clingy while you were queueing for a
ride. Sometimes he would be hugging you, sometimes kissing you,
without a care in the world for all the people who were around. That
one time he left a trail of kisses on your neck to then bite it, you
couldn’t help but ask him why exactly he was so clingy, all of a
sudden. “I don’t like how the other guys are looking at you.” Well… you did dress up cutely for the occasion, but you didn’t
think you were provoking that much interest… or that Ritsu was that
At the end of the
day, he was excitedly humming, stroking your hair in the train. It
was your turn to nap : you’d well deserved a bit of rest. “I’m
waking you up with a kiss when we’re there, so don’t worry, sleep all
you want…” You didn’t have to be told twice, but something in
his smirk didn’t exactly inspire you to trust him fully…
enough, you were effectively woken up by a kiss, but he was on top of
you, on his bed. You tried to get up or ask for explanations, and he
winked. “Carried you home. I’m much more powerful at night, you
know. And now, time for my treat…” As for you, you got
the treat to fall asleep spooning him. That was definitely the best
day in your life so far.
