A lot of people have been talking about Hotaru lately (duh like we didn’t see that) and his mystical power, like how good he’d be in bed (we all know it wouldnt only be because of his power — kirigakure genes in action ladies and gents) or how could his power affect people that don’t speak japanese, but here’s one thing…
NOBODY EVER THOUGHT HE WAS THE LIVING DEATH NOTE like screw that Netflix adaptation and Light Yagami and shit, THIS DUDE COULD LITTERALLY BE THE EMPEROR OF JAPAN ONLY BY ASKING AND STOP ALL THESE CLANS WARS FOR SUPREMACY AND JUST PUT THE NINJAS TO THE HEAD OF THE COUNTRY
Don’t tell me I’m the only crazy one thinking this
When the kettle begins boiling in earnest, it drowns out the ticking of that awful clock that Sirius found in a train station, or at the bottom of the Thames, or in nineteen fifty-two. He installed it so far up the wall behind the fridge that Lily hasn’t a hope of reaching it unless she somehow manages to grow an extra three feet, and it drives her mad (especially considering he’s only eight inches taller than her). The point of this is that Lily spends as much time as possible per day boiling the kettle. Lately, her rate of tea consumption is just about levelling James’, which is – well, she sent him a crate of real tea last week so it must be just about time to post him another one.
The clock isn’t even on the right time, which is probably the worst part. Actually, no, the fact that Lily has started automatically adding an hour and six minutes on in her head is probably the worst part.
(She was at work last week when her co-worker Dorcas had asked the time and Lily had told her it was four fifty. Needless to say, their boss had not been pleased to discover Dorcas in the staff room packing up her things an hour before the end of her shift.)
Lily looks at the clock, and it reads two forty-five, which means that in nine minutes’ time, James will be seated in front of his laptop, ready to receive an incoming video call from her. She plugs her own computer into its charger, and waits for it to turn on (too slowly), and then she logs in to Skype.
