still can't get over the fact that this was made 10 years ago

anonymous asked:

So Amon and Akira are slowly and begrudgingly having their views on ghouls changed, right? Imagine them stumbling across orphan ghoul children every now and then and just. Heck. They can't leave them there to become super angry and gleefully murderous ghouls or die on the streets. And that's how Touka eventually becomes accustomed to strange children being dumped on her at random intervals.

Several blocks away from the cafe, Amon began to wonder if he was a coward. Ok, he began to actually admit to himself that he was a coward (a gigantic man-baby, in fact). He was totally running away.

Akira’s recovery was…terrifying. He had wanted her to wake up so badly at first that he never considered what it would be like to actually talk to her (even though he’d been dreaming about it for years). Somewhere along the line, it seemed as if he had forgotten who Akira really was (resilient, pragmatic, warmer than he deserved, and unwilling to have her heart broken more than once) and he was ashamed.

Lost in thought, Amon took several turns too many, doubling back on himself and pacing the neighborhood like a creep. As luck would have it, he’d done this multiple times over the past week. People were getting a bit sketched out.

So sketched out that a pack of ghoul children, “The Rainbow Allegiance of Justice”, decided to make him their mark. They’d been following him all day. He hadn’t noticed, though everyone else in the neighbourhood had. No one was surprised (except Amon), when one of the masked kids yelled,

“You’re under arrest!”

And tackled his leg. The other children soon joined in with battle cries of their own. Confused, yet sturdy, Amon simply stood there and stared at the pile forming on his legs.

“What is going on?”

He asked, shaking his leg as delicately as possible in an attempt to remove the kids. Their leader, the one who had tried to ‘arrest’ him, cried out,

“You’re a suspicious person! Suspicious people need to go to…go to…j…”

Stupidly, Amon filled in for him,

“Jail.”

And the child officer just…lit up. Oh no (he was charmed).

Soon the area around :Re was no longer just filled with the scampering of the Rainbow Allegiance of Justice. Now if one listened closely they could hear Amon caving into the demands of children, allowing himself to be ‘arrested’ time and again, and (to the mass amusement of everyone in earshot) lecturing them on proper investigative procedure.

The more that he taught them, the more that the kids demanded he come back. Soon, 90% of Amon’s time was spent out on the streets and a mere 10% in :Re. He still spent time there, though, so his new proteges quickly tracked him down.

He was so proud of them (their stalking was adorably bad).

The proprietress, Touka Kirishima, was less proud. She told his little squad that stalking was a crime and that they’d have to arrest themselves. Then she kicked them out…

Though she told them they could come back at another time (softy).


It happened so slowly that Akira didn’t realize it at first. Hinami took her out to see the neighbourhood kids three times a week. She would play with them for awhile, teach them how to read, and then she would go back to :Re. Their interactions were minimal.

Nothing at all, really.

However, when she was sad they began to bring her gifts. Interesting rocks (’Gems!’ they’d insist about even remotely sparkly stones), flowers, the occasional weed…

And frogs.

The thing was, Akira used to be an expert frog-catcher as a child. The best there ever was (she had composed a theme song for herself long ago). She simply had to pass on her knowledge - it would’ve been terrible not to.

Suddenly, their interactions weren’t so minor. Akira had been dubbed ‘The Frog Queen’ and the children would bow or curtsy when she came by. Their catches become more and more varied (different species, bigger frogs, MORE frogs).

Then, the day came that Akira had a cold and couldn’t go out to meet them. So they came in to meet her.

With their frogs.

Free in the cafe.

Touka was furious (though she didn’t punish the kids…softy).


It was inevitable that the two groups of ghoul children would meet. They both hung around the cafe. They were around the same age, from the same area, and generally came for the same things. Those similarities eventually lead to arguments about who had the better teacher - Amon’s investigators or Akira’s frog-catchers.

Since kids will be kids, this turned into an all out frog-catching competition. Amon’s little team thought that their newfound investigative skills should give them an edge. Akira’s kids were more than happy to kick their asses.

The end result?

More frogs in :Re.

This time Touka yelled at all of them. She gave them all (Amon and Akira included) time-outs as well.

It was ultimately decided that Touka was the winner.


Since his crew of children had newfound respect for Akira and Touka, Amon found himself with some spare time. Spare time meant that he managed to dig himself into a concerned hole over whether or not Kaneki and the rest of them were truly safe here. He couldn’t resist doing regular patrols.

There was a kid he kept coming across on his patrols. Never in the same place, never any better fed, never in different clothes…he was obviously homeless. Amon understood completely (images of orphans and just scraping by coming to mind).

Touka wouldn’t mind one more kid, right?

Since she was their leader (after a fashion…she ran the cafe they were all hiding in and she definitely made more choices than Kaneki) she would be the one making the decision, right?

He tried telling her as much (thinking back on it, that was clearly a bad idea). Her response was simply,

“Congratulations. You’re a father.”

He had to thank his lucky stars that Akira was equally incapable of leaving this kid to his own devices, or Amon would wind up being a father-figure (an idea that terrified him more than he could say).  However, he also wished he had’ve seen her caring for the foreshadowing it really was.

There wasn’t only one homeless ghoul child, after all.

The kid Akira took in was an angry little spitfire that she convinced to move in via a game of wits. She never told anyone what gamble she had the kid going on, but it was obvious that she cheated. Repeatedly. Intentionally.

She purposefully pissed the kid off enough that he came to learn from her at :Re (how she knew he would never move in otherwise was beyond Amon).

To his horror, Amon had to watch as Akira tried to pass the kid off to Touka for some proper mothering (the idea of being a mother scared Akira more than she could say). He couldn’t look away (like watching a traffic accident) as Touka grinned and said,

“Congratulations. You’re a mother.”

I usually don’t write my thoughts but I’m too overwhelmed with feels after YOI episode 10 so I just wanted to get them out my system:

“Spiders?”

“Nope.”

“The dark?”

“Nuh-uh.”

“Ghosts?”

“If I were going to be scared of anything it would be something that, y'know, actually exists.”

“Glee mash-up songs?”

“Those aren’t scary, they’re a tragedy.”

“Come on, you’ve gotta be afraid of something.”

“Nope, no fears here,” Beca said, almost proud.

“She was brave enough to stand up to Drill Sergeant Posen from day one,” Stacie reminded them.

“Yeah and Jesse tried to scare me like a billion times this time last year. We watched all of those horror “classics” and he kept trying to jump scare me. You know, back when we were dating and I felt obligated to sit through those marathons.“

“I bet I could scare you.”

“No Chlo, I promise, you can’t.”

“No I legit bet I could scare you, $50!”

“Seriously? $50?” Now things were starting to get interesting

“What, you scared? Because if you were this would be the easiest bet ever.”

“No, I would just feel bad for straight up taking money from you.”

“Take the bet girl!” Cynthia-Rose said, always all about the gambling.

“You don’t know what you’re getting into Red. I’ve had 21 years to get this stoic, fearless thing down.”

“Everyone has a weakness Becs, I just have to find and exploit it,” Chloe stated adamantly, fire in her eyes,“ In fact, I bet I could do it within a week!”

“Oh you are so on.” The girls shook hands and everyone in the kitchen whooped and hollered, CR already taking side bets on who would win.

“You know what- $30 for Chloe, if anyone can crack Beca it’d be her,” Stacie said.

“No way! I’ll match her for Beca,” Amy countered,“ The other day she walked in on me and Bumper doing this new thing while we were trying on our policewoman and prisoner costumes where I’m behind him and I take my baton and-”

“LA LA LA!” Emily said plugging her ears before she could hear the rest.“

“Anyway- we were doing it and Beca walked in and barely bat an eye lash, just got her headphones and walked back out.” The freshman could only imagine how the rest of that story would go.

“What about you Legacy? You gonna make a bet?” CR said.

Emily shook her head. She was warned by her mother that everyone went a little crazy in college around Halloween but she didn’t think it would be this weird.

Or maybe it was just the Bellas.

Beca sung quietly to herself as she applied the conditioner to her hair. Even with the shower running she could hear the door to the bathroom quietly open and close. She had to hand it to Chloe though, if she weren’t paying extra attention- or expecting it because come on, trying to scare her in the shower was so four years ago- she probably wouldn’t have noticed the shower curtain subtly move.

“BOO!” Chloe said behind her. Beca turned around slowly, smirk placed firmly on her face.

“If you were really trying to catch me off guard you would have come in here fully naked.” Chloe had come prepared in a bathing suit. Even though the image of a nude Chloe was still fully ingrained in her mind Beca could still fully appreciate what was in front of her right now.

“Is someone getting cocky?” Chloe countered though she was feeling a little hot under the brunette’s unwavering stare. It was much different than it was the first time. Completely reversed in fact and she was dying, especially with Beca there wet, naked, smirking…

“No, I’m just more confident about…all of this, than I was a few years ago.” ‘You should be,’ was at the tip of the redheads tongue but instead she gave out a small squeak,“ You want to share a towel or do you have another fool-proof plan to scare me?” That got Chloe to snap out of it.

“Oh, I’ll get you, Mitchell, just you wait,” Chloe stepped out of the shower.“ Now get changed and get downstairs, we have to discuss the set for the Inaugural Barden Pumpkin Festival!”

“I’m still pissed at you for agreeing to do that by the way!” Beca yelled back.

Chloe quickly dried off and threw some clothes on. Although, she seriously debated taking a cold shower herself after that interaction.

“So?” Stacie asked when Chloe made her way to the kitchen, she would rather not lose to Fat Amy. She shook her head,“ Damn it, but it worked before!”

“Ah, and that’s your problem, she saw it coming!” Amy said.

“Okay, you know what I’m in, $10 on Beca,” Emily handed her money to CR, the holder of the pot.

“See, even Legacy knows I’m gonna win!” Beca said, coming down the stairs.

“Oh don’t be too sure yet missy, I still have five more days”

Chloe was far from giving up.

Sure she had tried clowns, lightning, jump scares, and getting Lily to dress up like the grudge and they all failed but she was so not giving up.

She wouldn’t let Beca win this one.

 Five days later the girls exited the Haunted House at the festival. They had some down time before they had to perform and they were fully utilizing their free rides and food that they received as compensation.

Half of them still looked entirely freaked and the other half covered their terror with wide smiles.

“-oh my god that chainsaw guy was awful I almost shit my pants!” CR said.

“Jessica cried!” Ashley laughed.

“Did not, the green ooze from the fourth room got in my eyes!”

“It was okay,” Beca shrugged- truly unphased by the experience.

“UGH how could you be so totally un-scarable? That was terrifying!” Chloe pouted. She had tried relentlessly for 5 days straight to scare the pants off her co-captain with no success and had seemingly given up the last two.

“Hey I warned you- easiest $50 I’ll ever make.” Chloe fumed in reply,“ Oh c'mon Chlo don’t give me that.” Still, the redhead didn’t reply. Beca was only a little worried since they had always had this playful banter between them, but maybe she was being a little too much of an asshole this time,“ It’s just a stupid bet don’t be mad.”

“I’m not mad. And I still have ‘till midnight. Now c'mon, time to go backstage and get ready.” She put on a smile but Beca still wasn’t buying it, she hoped she hadn’t screwed anything up between the two of them. As much as she put up a front she knew her relationship with Chloe was one of the things she held most dear, she’d kick herself forever if she messed that up over something as stupid as a bet…even if Beca did come out on top.

“Alright girls, just a routine performance- practice for regionals!”

For the festival they had applied Zombie make-up and wore tattered versions of their regular outfits- not without the Bella’s scarf of course. It was definitely not the most challenging number they ever had both vocally and choreographically, but it was fun and a crowd pleaser starting with “I Put A Spell On You” by Jay Hawkins, getting mixed with “The Monster” by Eminem and ending with Imagine Dragons’ “Demons”.

At least, that was the plan but half way through Demons Chloe suddenly stopped, causing Flo to run into her. Then it was chaos from there as most of the girls kept singing and the others stopped to make sure Chloe was okay.

The redhead just continued to lean of and disregard what was happening around her.

By the time Beca had noticed something was going wrong behind her Chloe was gasping for air as she held onto Emily who looked like she might pass out. The brunette rushed to the other captain and took Emily’s place.

“I…can't…nodes,” Chloe tried her hardest to breathe in but she couldn’t. Doubled over, she did her best to lean on Beca for support.

“Oh my God her surgery must have had some sort of side effect,” Stacie guessed, looking just as freaked out as everyone else- audience included. The other Bellas did their best not to panic as they kept watching.

“C-can't… breathe.” The gasps were getting shallower as she struggled.

“ALRIGHT CALM DOWN EVERYONE SHE IS NOT GOING TO DIE!” Amy screamed.

“Amy, shut the hell up right now! Chloe hold on don’t talk, someone get her water and call an ambulance!” Beca demanded wildly.

“I’ve got it!” Stacie said, hastily taking out her phone.

“Chlo j-just sit down okay? Everything will be-” the senior collapsed on the stage onto her side, several gasps could be heard from the crowd and a scream came from some of the Bellas.

“Shit, shit shit shit, Chloe?” Beca tried, getting to her knees so she could put Chloe’s head into her lap. She ripped off the Bella’s scarf that was tied to her neck and saw that her skin was an angry red.

“WATER I FOUND WATER!” Amy yelled handing her a novelty Pumpkin shaped cup, but Beca was in hysterics as Chloe remained unconscious.

“No no no please Chloe please be okay. You’re okay, the ambulance will be here any minute and they’ll take care of you just, I need you to be okay-” Beca could feel the tears well up in her eyes. She knew they shouldn’t have taken this stupid gig. If they had just had a normal night they wouldn’t have to sing and Chloe wouldn’t have put stress on her node surgery and she would be fine and oh god. What if she wasn’t fine? Then it would be Beca’s fault and Chloe was still mad at her and she would never forgive herself if-

“AHRGHRGHH!” Chloe screamed as her eyes shot open and she sat straight up. Beca gave out an uncharacteristically high-pitched yelp, stumbling backwards from Chloe and landing straight on her ass, staring incredulously at the redhead- who was fine and smiling.

There was a small pause and then-

“What the actual fuck dude?!” she yelled, slamming her tiny fists on the ground because she had no idea how to react.

“GOTCHA!” Chloe continued to grin.

“Wh-I- DUDE. So not cool!” Beca shook her head, her heart still beating quickly from the scare- she could honestly say she had never felt like this before,“ I thought you were- I thought…

"I scared you didn’t I?” Chloe crawled over to the brunette and kneeled between her legs,“ Didn’t I?”

“I- you… You looked- and you hit the ground so hard and the make-up and-” Beca punched Chloe’s shoulder, not enough to hurt her but enough to convey her anger,“ That was so mean.”

“Yeah it looks convincing huh? You can thank Stace for that.”

“Yeah, I didn’t call an ambulance either,” Stacie winked. For the first time Beca remembered that there were other people there. The girls surrounding them also had large smiles on their faces. They were all in on it.

“WHAT?!” Amy bellowed. Well, except for Amy.

“That was….” Beca said, still speechless and in shock.

“Brilliant? Creative? Successful?”

“Evil. You know how much I…” instead of finishing her sentence she glared.

“Like I said, brilliant. I knew I would find a weakness to exploit. Looks like I’m your weakness.”

“Fuck you…”

“Aww, don’t be bitter because you lost sweetie.” Beca just continued to pout. She didn’t know if she was more upset about the fact that she almost lost Chloe (kind of) or that she lost their bet.

Both, probably.

“I’m not bitter…” she said unconvincingly. Chloe leaned forward to give the clearly fuming girl a long peck on the cheek and her features softened a considerable amount.

“Don’t worry, I’ll make it up to you,” Chloe whispered suggestively,“…but first, you owe me $20.”
