DISCLAIMER: Written by an actual fucking blind person.
Ugh okay so I grew up with so many parallels to this boy and only just now realized it which explains why I fucking relate to him so much so I just have to write about it.
Little Kyoya actually being the oldest but being skipped right over and immediately devalued because he’s blind.
Young Kyoya growing up with super fucking thick glasses and not being taught braille or to use a cane because the sighted school officials said he “didn’t need them” because he “can see enough to get by.”
Young Kyoya growing up being forced to hunch over large print with all sorts of magnifying glasses and devices increasing in strength as the years go by and developing serious neck and back pain as a result.
Middle school!Kyoya being the same grumpy, angry boy he was originally but for a slightly different reason and like he still has given up on himself and spends more time being pissed off about his situation than doing anything about it.
But then he goes to this summer camp for blind teens run by all these blind instructors and he meets this FUCKING IDIOT who keeps telling him he can do whatever he thinks he can’t.
Kyoya realizing he has to wear sleep shades (eye coverings) at this camp and use a long white cane and read braille and use screen readers on computers and phones and being so pissed and uncooporative at first because “I can see better than you I don’t need this crap.”
Him being one of the most difficult students to work with because he says he is NOT blind and can see just fine because that’s what everyone told him growing up and his internalized ableism is so fucking deeply engrained.
But god damn he’s getting used to doing stuff with the shades and holy fuck he doesn’t have to stare at the ground and walk super slow and test the ground every two steps anymore and fuck he can READ!
And he’s still reluctant and demands to go home a few times but Tamaki straight up tells him that he’s the one giving up on himself and that he can do whatever he wants if he learns how to do this stuff and Kyoya all but chews him out but jesus he’s right because he never thought he’d be able to have a job or live alone or walk down the street yet here he is doing all of that and more.
And he hates all these damn people who keep forcing him to do shit he’s terrified to do and still doesn’t really think he can do but fuck every time he does something he’s okay and he thinks they might be right.
And before he knows it the summer is over but he doesn’t want to go home and he’s kind of fallen in love with all these people and the life they’ve given him and he realizes he can fight for what he wants and outdo his brothers if he wants and be just as good as anyone else.
And he’s still a snarky ass but god damn this is his family and what he learned here means more to him than anything and he goes home and takes his straight cane everywhere he goes and gets a new phone with screen-reading abilities and gets himself a sleak fancy braille display and can actually use his Pineapple computer quickly and efficiently like he does in canon and he fights tooth and nail for an equal education and outshines his brothers and moves into an apartment in the city and goes to college just like anyone else and forever loves his friends from training and is very happy and knows that he is just as good as anyone else and is NOT inspirational or pitiful and is just Kyoya who was taught to defeat himself before he even tried but learned what he was really capable of and never turns back and never strains his fucking eyes to read shit he can’t ever again.
Anyway hope you enjoyed this little thing it’s not very flushed out in detail but I am so passionate about this and perhaps someday I’ll write a fic and kill two birds with one stone: write about the REEAL experiences of blind people to put all that disgusting offensive garbage to shame AND get to write for Kyoya my sweet megane.
(P.S.: stop writing blind characters when you know nothing about us.)
Jin- Whoa man he would be so shocked okay. Like you guys would be hanging out with everyone and she would say something (really dumb) and you would just snap and everyone would get really silent and Jin would just look at you like a deer caught in headlights and you would be so embarrassed cause you 120% did not mean to do that so you’d get up to walk away and said girlfriend would say something about you under her breath and Jin would hear it and be like “don’t talk about her like that she’s important to me” and she’d be like “more important than me?” and instead of saying something Jin would get up and go find you eeeeey all this drama.
Yoongi- Imagine this. You guys are backstage after a show and she’s being all clingy and gross and you make some offhanded comment not really meaning for anyone to hear it and yoongi would be like ‘what did you say?” so you would laugh and say it louder and he’d be like “why would you say that” and you’d be like “cause it’s true! She’s only with you to get something out of it! Everyone knows it except for you! You deserve someone who actually wants to be with you cause they love you like i do!” and he would have this look on his face as he turned to look at everyone and he would ask if they all thought that to and they’d be super quiet cause whoa you just confessed and now things are awkward as FUCK and yoongi would storm off leaving all of you there just staring at each other not knowing what to do.
Hoseok- Oh boy. My sunshine my hope he would be so sad to find out that you think someone is dating him just because he’s famous. He’s so kind and sweet he wouldn’t think anyone would actually do that and when you tell him he would be like “how can you tell” and you’d say something like “if she really cared she would treat you better. She would treat you how you deserve to be treated” and one of the boys would say something like “yeah like how you treat him cause you love him” and without thinking you would say “exactly” and then it would get reeal silent real fast as everyone looks at you and you would just shrug because yeah you love hobi who the fuck doesn’t and he would have to go sit down and think really hard about what to do yup.
Namjoon- He would get kind of angry i think. He would be mad that you would say something like that in front of everyone because it makes him look like a fool? If that makes sense. But they he would take a step back and be like “wait, did you just confess to me in front of everyone?’ and you would blush and yell back at him “yes i did you big idiot!” and storm off cause he’s being dumb and someone (jin probably lets be real) would tell him to go after you before he fucks it up even more.
Jimin- Nope. i don’t want to think of someone using jimin like that not gonna happen. He is my child nope. He would be so sad that someone would do that to him and embarrassed that you said it in front of everyone but they he’d realize that you just confessed and he’s so confused my poor chimchim he would need time to think about everything before saying anything so he would probs walk away.
Taehyung- He would be in denial about like for reals. It would probably start a fight of him saying that you were wrong and everyone would just be watching you two argue and then someone (jimin or jungkook) would say “she’s actually right. Blah blah isn’t good for you and she’s just using you. y/n wouldn’t do that to you cause she cares about you too much” and you would be like “see jungkook can see it why can’t you?” and the the conversation would flip to “wait since when do you like me y/n” and that’s when it gets awkward oops.
Jungkook- first off if anyone ever did this to my tiny son i would have to hurt them not gonna lie. I feel like he would be a mix of taehyung and and namjoon. He would be mad that you would think that and he would feel like you thought he couldn’t take care of himself. And then you’d say something like “you should be with someone who loves you for you and not what you can give them” and he’d be like “like who? You? Since you seem to care so much?” and you’d be like “yes you idiot” and storm off and everyone would be like ‘what the fuck kookie you moron” and he would be so confused and yoongi would have to tell him that he just fucked up big time
