just to lighten things up in my blog a little, let’s talk some fluff.
i just had this image of touka walking around ccg commanding them and instructing everyone and little brother ayato just tagging along, holding her stuff for her and all. to be more specific, he’s holding some sort of clipboard with plans and whatever.
they have a meeting with the ccg officials and goat members and whenever she needs opinions on something, she turns to ayato because she knows he has the experience from aogiri and all and he probably can help with organising squads and judging people based on their strengths to allocate them different tasks. when the meeting is dismissed, touka sits down and sighs, rubbing her temples as she wonders if things will work out. ayato just stands behind her, reassuring her. he massages her shoulders a little, trying to get her to relax since he knows she’s pregnant and shouldn’t be stressing herself out too much. ‘aneki, you’re working so hard. i’m sure you’ll get to see him again.’
i also see touka defending ayato especially from the ccg because they’re like, ‘this dude is the aogiri tree’s rabbit’ and everyone in the ccg gives him dirty looks because they know he’s done far more and worse stuff than any other ghoul so they’re really suspicious of him. i kinda imagine some sort of a ‘look how young he is, ghouls truly are monsters from birth’ kind of reaction and touka snaps back at them by pointing out squad zero and the oggai thing.
touka tells ayato to present some sort of battle plan he has to the ccg and he accepts, except he gets a little nervous about it because there’s so many humans staring at him and he’s never talked to so many humans before.he’s always hiding from them, even back in the anteiku days. i’m also sure his timid side from back when he was a kid occasionally surfaces. touka nudges him like ‘what’s wrong, useless brother? aren’t you supposed to be an aogiri executive?’ her words are harsh but she’s looking at him with that you got this look.
touka and ayato talking baby names and laughing over their choices because it’s so similar. they come to the conclusion that they really will need kaneki back to name the kid. touka tells ayato whatever has happened between her and kaneki and she apologises for not waiting for him. ayato says honestly that he still doesn’t like kaneki too much and he probably never will and that he is also bitter it had to be kaneki, but if touka is truly happy and if kaneki keeps her that way, he can’t ask for more. though ayato also admits that kaneki isn’t really starting on a good foot by becoming a worm that destroyed part of tokyo. touka tells ayato about what happened with hinami and how hinami stood up to juuzou and squad zero and how she was hurt. ayato says he’s really proud of her and how far she’s come. he’s upset she had to kill people because he knows how much that bothers her and he’s a little annoyed he wasn’t back in time to help her out. but when he compares her to what she used to be, he’s really proud of how far she comes and how she’s able to protect the people she loves and cares about.
touka remembers the thing about arata and she knows that she probably should tell ayato about it as well since she hasn’t done so. she tells ayato that the him and her have to make it out of this alive because she has something really important to tell him about their father.
