Tokinada mention @mindinmuken
The sound of birds and rushing of small animals that ran into bushes and nearby forest echoed through Seinosuke ears as he made his way through the 79th district of Rukongai. He only briefly- not even for a full two seconds to glance over his shoulder to see if anyone was following him- not that he could sense anyone that he didn’t recognize or did recognize. Stopping at a shack a make-shift house that the citizens of the districts made. He gently raised his right hand and knock on the door with the back of his hand.
After the moment, the door open and a man with short brown hair and dark light green eyes answered the door, wearing what was clearly make-shift clothing that was common in the districts. “Hello, Hirose.” Seinosuke started.
The man chuckled. “Seinosuke Yamada. God, what it been over years since we last met?” Hirose answered, turning as he motion the medic inside.
Seinosuke followed, shutting the door behind him gently as he did so. “Supposed so. The last time was... hm I guess after I got my promotion. “ He replied.
“Oh right.” Hirose spoke, sounding a bit reminiscing in his tone as he led Seinosuke into the make-shift dinning room, though in reality it was just a small room off of the ‘kitchen’ that had a table that could fit up to four possible five people.
Moving to sit down on one of the chairs. Seinosuke looked at the taller male. “How has things been going here? I assume you still selling illegal items that get smuggled into rukongai?” Seinosuke asked as he crossed his left leg over his right one.
“Same old- same old. Nothing new.” Hirose replied, confirming Seinosuke suspensions as he sat down across from Seinosuke. “How is it working for the nobles? They treating a street rat like yourself well?” He asked.
Seinosuke couldn’t help but snort at the comment of being a street rat. How ironic it was for someone like him to be working for the nobles- but he didn’t complain- it paid well and that all that mattered- despite its flaws. “As well as they can I supposed.” He replied with a light shrug of his shoulders.
“Good, Don’t take no shit from those rich assholes.” Hirose commented with a cocky grin on their face, sounding serious as he did so. Seinosuke gave a grim smile at that. He knew good and well a certain noble could over hear that would love to torment the rukongai citizen for his own sadistic pleasure but he knew he could hope that Tokinada wasn’t listening to this conversation with the bugs he has all around the soul society.
“Ah, you do know by that logic I am also considered one of those” Seinosuke commented- rather sarcastically, his light blue eyes narrowed a bit at his friend.
“No no, you aren’t. Sure, you can be an asshole but you aren’t like them. You worked for your money. Sure you did illegal business such as myself. But you made it in life. You working in a place where anyone from rukongai could dream of working. “ Hirose clarified as they stood up from where they were sitting and made their way into the kitchen. “anyway- would you like a drink?”
“No, and that is an interesting way to put it. Supposed there is a difference between me and the nobles... ” Seinosuke trailed off- briefly memories of creating Hikone with Aura and being tormented by Tokinada, and the recent memories of healing nobles in his own sadistic fashion.
Though he also knew the main difference is that he wanted to save people- he didn’t seek joy in torturing to just to kill- he tortured to benefit- to heal and keep people who wanted to die, alive. Though, he was swiftly snapped out of his thoughts as he felt a hand on his shoulder. Causing him to look up at his friend.
“Everything alright? you spaced out there for a moment.” Hirose commented, raising a brow. “something on your mind?” He asked.
“Everything fine,” Seinosuke reassured with a dismissive wave of his left hand. “Don’t worry about it hm? “ He added. his expression seemly became more deadpan from his loose relax expression as he watched his friend retake a seat and open the beer bottle that he had and took a sip from it.
“Anyway, where are the others? Are they coming today?” Seinosuke asked, hoping to change the topic.
“You know you can speak with me about anything, Seinosuke. We all been through hell in our different ways. “ Hirose admitted as they took another sip of their drink. “and they should be here soon. But in any case. Shall we start our card game and wait for them?”
Seinosuke could only chuckle at the first comment. Oh how he wished he could tell his old ‘friends’ everything. “sure.” he mumbled. How he wished he could easily expose the secrets and the cruelty of himself and the nobility. But at last- a so-called heartless person that was himself, someone who remains hollow inside and keeps the emotions under lock and key for his own safety and the safety of people he did care about.
“Right. I brought the cards this time.” Seinosuke mumbled as he took out the deck of hanafuda cards from his regular Shihakusho pocket that he had custom made in his uniform, placing them on the table as he set up the game for both of them.
Seinosuke was at least glad he was off for the day that he was able to enjoy this old favorite of is that he played with his friends. Oh how he wished he could enjoy this more but for now- he was relishing at the moment and allow himself to be content in the familiar presence from his past.

ok TOMORROW i will work on the poli sci paper i still need to finish/write
I shouldn't have watched episode 32 of Word Of Honor while being a bit drunk now I'm way too emotional 😭😭
working on chapter 4 of shrike todayyyyyyyyyyyy
rip to all my fellow college students who are working on papers that are due around may 4/5 and are in a state of constant dread between wanting it to be may 4 but also not because that means that our papers are due but we kinda need to actually work on them still
2day feels less crunchy then most days of my life
supernatural seasons 2 & 4 and purity and danger by mary douglas. just putting it out there
one day i might wear an outfit that’s actually suitable for the occasion
Realizing that I spent a lot of time fearing getting older because I thought that meant the party was over. Hmmmmmm
I went for a 1.3 mi hike. Someone please be proud of me.
i stan sam because i love characters who are power-hungry but kind and empathetic and i love that sam has the ability to rationalize nearly anything including horrible acts of violence by him or dean or the ones he loves if it suits his purposes and i love that he is afraid of his internal darkness while embracing it when he feels he needs to and i love that he is self-destructive and so reliant on dean to set his definition of self... when we see sam really dive off the deep end dean has either just died or has rejected sam, as seen in sam’s reaction when dean goes to hell, sam’s decision to complete the trials when he knows they’re killing him because he feels as though dean has chosen other people over him, his obsessive behaviour in season ten before he realizes dean is a demon (and after!), sam saying yes to lucifer in the endverse when dean has left him entirely, his total willingness to start harvesting organs and killing innocent people in order to stay with dean when dean’s deal is coming due...
sam is so willing to believe ruby when she tells him only he can kill lillith and that dean is too weak because sam wants to be important. he rationalizes her being a demon, he rationalizes the steps he “has to take” like demon blood and lying to dean because only he can do this, he alone can stop the apocalypse, and that is SO INTERESTING as a lens to analyze a character
today was such a good day 😊
