INDIE SELECTIVE HANEKOMA SANAE.
canon divergent for pre game
this blog is spoiler heavy for The World Ends With You
&& crosses over occasionally with Kingdom Hearts.
I occasionally post fanart but you can also find it on my twitter.
Admittedly, the last time either of them remembered seeing Kaito’s hand, it was around her neck while she was trying to claw his throat out—with her teeth.
Wait a second. Nope, wrong continuity again—
“Hey. You can’t just ask a guy ‘what are you’ like that, it’s rude. My feelings would be shattered if I cared that much.” He lets the words sink in before continuing, arms folded across his chest.
“The latter. It’s sort of a family thing, y’know? Passed down from one generation to the next…” While he speaks, the little tear in space stitches itself closed, and he’s left to stare at her—and the ramen. Eyes flick back and forth between the two.
“Hurry up and eat, before your brain completely smooths out. It’s best not to think about these kinds of things and just enjoy the food.”
Clearly, two could play at the blunt dialogue game.
someone sure has a fuzzy, confused memory of the last time they had hung out together. definitely don’t remember any of that happening, nope–
❛ huh, very funny. since it sounds like you don’t care that much, tell me. ❜ blunt and forceful, but it shouldn’t be a problem if he didn’t care very much. at least it shouldn’t be in her head.
❛ hereditary abilities. gotcha. ❜ syn simply stares with slight curiosity as she slips the wooden chopsticks out of their packet and breaks them evenly. she had done this so many times, and with her strength, it was easy to perfect it; though it did take a couple decades simply because of how rough she used to be.
❛ no matter how many concussions i could have had, my brain still isn’t as smooth as yours. ❜ it wasn’t a direct insult, and perhaps she was wrong. she probably was. unable to react back quick enough, the demon takes a slurp of the ramen, nodding her head approvingly. mumbling something similar to ‘this is really good’ with her mouth full. classy.
“…Hmph…well then there’s no fuckin’ poin’…”
❛ pft, you’ll be fine. don’t worry, nic. ❜ she pets her mortal friend’s head, further emphasizing the
very slight difference in their height. ❛ you could always wear taller shoes if it bothers ya that much. ❜
me and my girlies ✌🏼

“I don’t think you’d be surprised at how many demons struggle to find affordable representation in conflict management. Folks tend to see them in a worse light than most.” Not that he’s a lawyer or anything, but sometimes he wonders if his job as a mediator crosses into that territory.
At her question, Kaito almost cracks a smile. Almost. Not enough people actually ask that question, which leads him to wonder how desensitized they are to such oddities.
…Then again, he’s pretty damn desensitized. Shrugging, he lifts a finger and draws a circle in the air. Blue light fills the space, creating a window of sorts into an empty void. The empath proceeds to stick his arm inside and pull out a pair of chopsticks and a spoon. Everything is held out, nice and tidy-like.
“Pocket space,” he finally blurts out. “Don’t worry, it’s still fresh.”
Maybe he was a cartoon character. Or, an anime character? Anime character Kaito Nagano had a certain ring to it—
❛ … ❜ what in the hell was he talking about? she had never heard of demons finding affordable representation, let alone struggling to find any. most she knew would just deal with their problems head-on and personally. or force, coerce or blackmail someone else to fight for them.
ignoring the comment as it had temporarily fried her brain, she watches with her jaw open and eyes wide seeing him draw a portal in the air. when was the last time she remembered kaito having powers of any kind? her memory sure was failing her a lot lately. ❛ pocket space? ❜ the utensils that are offered are taken without caution, examining the brand and quality of them as her stomach growls. good timing, she was actually getting hungry.
❛ is it just a small dimension of all yer stuff, or a portal to yer room? either way, it’s a new trick i haven’t seen you use. at all, if i’m bein’ honest. what are you? ❜ blunt and straight to the point. if it wasn’t anything horrible or embarrassing, he would tell her; at least that’s what she hoped. having to sit and try to figure it out herself would be too much for her.
“Neitha did I. Bu’ he go’ i’ fer me outta kindness…’er wha’ever he can call i’. Bu’ he’s my big bro? An’ I guess he was tryna be nice.” He saw purple and pink and gave it to her. Which in her mind, was extremely kind. He remembered something that was a favorite of hers and acted in accordance when giving her a thing! How could she not be grateful for his effort?
“I dunno! I think yer bein’ nice ta me. An’ ta be frank? I ain’ know Barbie made them eitha. Bu’ they’re sure as fuck fun!” Nicole likes to think it meant something. That Syn was slowly being nicer and becoming more wholesome. At least to her! “Wha’ did I wan’? Nuffin’. Ta see if i’ worked. Bu’ since yer here…wanna chill?”
❛ well, i hope it’s outta kindness. a ouija board ain’t a normal gift, ‘specially for mortals. and big bro as in related or like… platonic, found-family kinda thing? ❜ syn had never met any of nicole’s blood relatives, so it was only fair she asked if he was one of them or not. which reminded her that nicole hardly ever talked about her family. maybe it was for the better, like in her own case.
❛ i’m always nice t’ you, ain’t i? i don’t maul you or beat you up or anythin’ like other demons would! ❜ slapping her hands on her cheeks, she massages her temples to try and relieve the tension in her head from getting mad and embarrassed. she was supposed to be trying to lessen that, and blowing up over nicole’s dumb but expected teasing shouldn’t have set her off like that. she was being too lax on her “exercises.” ❛ honestly, they’re not supposed t’ work. at least on my types o’ demons. those were all just pranks, but now i’m a lil’ worried. and… yeah, sure, that’s fine. what’d ya wanna do? ❜
“Are you for real? I’d lose a shitton of clients if they heard that I was beating up demons for no reason. Now, if you were trying to mug me…”
He looks incredibly unimpressed, but once the question is posed, he reaches behind him and pulls out a bowl of piping hot ramen from… somewhere. Probably for the best if she doesn’t ask.
“Tonkotsu. Made it myself.”
“ what kinda clients do ya even have that beatin’ up a demon would deter ‘em away from you? “ syn couldn’t remember what exactly it was that kaito did, if she had ever learned. must be something supernatural by the sounds of it. “ lucky for you , i’m not interested in muggin’ you , or any criminal stuff anymore. turnin’ a new leaf. “
she watches him pull out a steaming hot bowl of ramen from behind his back, wondering where and how the hell he managed to pull that magic trick before her eyes. was he a cartoon character now, being able to just pull anything out of his pockets? could be another clue to what his mysterious job is.
“ … won’t argue tonkotsu ain’t good but… where d’you get that? “
“–Abel go’ i’ fer me. I ain’ even know this shit worked.” A ouija board was a ouija board…but why Barbie? And more than anything, why Syn? Did Syn have some soft inner girly girl side Nic didn’t know about?
“Ya tryna tell me somethin’, Synnamon?”
abel… who the hell was that? another demon friend? “i didn’t think it would, either. didn’t even think ouija boards actually worked, to be honest.“ she had had classmates or friends – or people she simply heard about – showing up when people tried to summon things with the dumb little boards just to scare them. she had also heard that a rumor had spread among the mortals it actually worked. maybe nicole was just special?
“wh– what the hell would this be tellin’ you?! i didn’t even know barbie made these, you think i’d really be summoned by some fuckin’ cardboard made by some blonde california doll company?!” well. she was, wasn’t she? but it didn’t mean anything! “change the subject! what did you want?!”
i know damn well once i get further into twewy and/or finish it, syn’s gonna get a twewy verse of some kind and i’m terrified of that
Well, if all else fails, he can expose his neck and offer up some bloo—ah, wait, wrong timeline…
“What are you even running away from? Do I look like a debt collector? Get back here, I have noodles.”
definitely the wrong timeline. she has fangs but has no need to drink blood. maybe to see it but– no! she wasn’t like that anymore! (or, not supposed to be.)
“ thought you were gonna maul me or somethin’ , i dunno. it’s been a while and i’m still a demon. “ she stares at his hands then back at him. “ what kinda noodles ya got? “
“question: how did you summon me through that?” what was she pointing at exactly? the fuckin’ barbie ouija board nicole had somehow managed to acquire. not only did she not expect that there was one anyway, but the fact that nicole fucking around with it actually summoned a demon, let alone her. so much for hiding.
“i didn’t even know barbie made shit like that.”
( hiding noises. )
come back with syn with black hair? perhaps
Oops. Hope no one missed her too much.
>gets tagged in two things for ‘what were your hands meant to do?’ or smth.

sweats. hello. i’ve been busy with work but i might try to come back today with at least a reply and a meme or two. please wait for me. >:
you are medea, from the argonautica by apollonius and medea by euripides. you are ambitious, ruthless, and unforgiving in getting what you want, and unapologetic in your self-preservation. the truth is, you have let your romantic ideals get the better of you before, and time and time again you have had to relearn how to build up those walls and thorns that guard it. the only person who can protect you is yourself, and you have learned that the hard way. sometimes stoking that fire of hate and anger in your heart hurts more than whatever you’re fighting against.
tagging: anyone who wants to do it and/or hasn’t yet
i love how two people tagged me in the same quiz meme.
that means i must do it

The small, ferocious ball of sunshine was always moving, it almost felt like the demon couldn’t get a grasp on him or catch up. She swore if she was a human, she wouldn’t be able to keep up with him. Luckily she wasn’t, so she used all her extra energy and capabilities to follow and make sure he was okay along with learning how to be better.
Eventually they took a rest on their journey, leaning against a wide tree after watching and learning how to cook with the materials at hand. With her arms crossed, Syn closed her eyes and listened to the sounds of nature. Tanjiro must have been doing the same, as after a few minutes past, she felt a soft thump on her shoulder, gentle breathing following suit.
She turned her head to look at him, watching him use her as a pillow so comfortably that it made her embarrassed. With pink on her cheeks, she leaned his way and rested her head on his, heart jumping at the realization of how soft his hair was.
❛ Jeez… Am I that soft now, or is he just that brave? ❜
