    Sweet Dreams Are Made of.  .  . (Niragi Suguru x Reader)

    Word Count: 572

    Summary: Niragi has interesting ways of waking you up at night, 

    Warnings: Smut, smut, smut

    You felt hot. The summer air blowing in from your window tonight did nothing to cool down the temperature of your body. You laid in bed, sweat moistening your brow as your body moved of its own accord. Soft pants sounded in the room as you slept. Gentle moans left your mouth. 

    When Niragi came back from his game, he was disappointed to see that you didn’t stay up waiting for him like you normally did. He kicked off his shoes and set his gun off to the side when he heard an arousing noise coming from your sleeping body. 

    “Mmm. . . Niragi.  .  .” You murmured in your sleep. A wide smirk spread across his face when he guessed the nature of your dream. He slowly walked over to the edge of the bed, tilting his head to get a look at your flushed face. It was all so tempting. You were laying on top of the covers in nothing but your underwear, your chest rising and falling. His eyes followed your breasts, then fell down between your spread legs. Niragi gently let his fingers run down over your clothed core, sighing in pleasure to know you were wet. He watched you for a bit longer before deciding to make your dreams come true. 

    Pulling your wet underwear off your body was easy and keeping your legs spread was almost easier. Niragi’s hands ghosted over your breasts, deciding that this was one of those rare occasions to take his time. He flicked his tongue over your hardening nipples, then went back down to business. 

    His mouth latched on to your dripping cunt, swirling his tongue inside your aching walls. Your breath hitched and a louder moan escaped your mouth. Eyes fluttering open, you looked down, gasping in surprise. 

    “Niragi!” You exclaimed, trying to sit up. He pushed you back down, putting weight on to your hips to keep you that way. He continued to slurp at your folds, giving you long licks. Your body shook, feeling hotter and hotter. 

    One hand was thrown back, haphazardly holding on to the bed frame, while the other was massaging your breast. Your thighs started to shake with what Niragi was doing to you, feeling his hot tongue inside you, dragging itself up and flicking against your oversensitive clit. The way his hands gripped your thighs, bruising them, kept your mouth open in silent screams. 

    When your orgasm washed over you, your body shook and spasmed. You threw your head back in pleasure, hands balling into fists in the sheets. No comprehensible words left your mouth, but Niragi knew he had done well. He pulled away from you, crawling up your body. He gripped your face in his hand, grinning at the sight of your hazy eyes. 

    “Tell me you want me.” He rolled his hips into yours. 

    “Fuck, I want you.” 

    This time around, Niragi didn’t take his time. All he did was unbuckle his pants and fuck you into the mattress, holding your body down. You gripped his arms and gasped as you felt his cock slap against you. He was fast and rough, leaving bruises on your hips as he used and abused you. He pulled out, pumping his cock until he came all over your chest. With a deep, satisfied sigh, Niragi got off you, walking to the shower. 

    “This better be cleaned up by the time I’m finished.” He called over his shoulder.

    One of these days, with the amount of animals we introduce into the Borderlands, the executives are just gonna walk into the meeting room only to find out that their animal counterparts/pets are all having a meeting on their own. Just duck Hatter at the table, quacking in pure offense that they were interrupted, and a bunch of animals all staring at the humans. Even Niraffi is there, and being the only one out of all the animals to have vocal cords he's the one able to tell them it's occupied and to fuck off.

    They even got animal guards to escort them out. It's apparently serious business.

    So remember the bonfire, right? Well apparently now I can't help but think about arming the militants with marshmallows again, but this time Niragi decided to see whether he could successfully roast a marshmallow by shooting it through the open, wildly hot flames, and leaving Hatter on the other end to catch said flaming marshmallows. Will it work? Who the heck knows, but it's free entertainment seeing Niragi at work. Bonus points if it lands on a graham cracker.

    #aib #alice in borderland #niragi suguru#hatter#takeru danma #poor marshmallow it suffered the niragi fate #maybe it's not even the ten of hearts maybe it just so happened there was a bonfire in the same area #being pelted with marshmallows on the other end of the fire though sounds like quite a situation #imagine you're just sitting there roasting when the leader of the Beach comes by #and he initiates casual talk as he does #but his attention is clearly at the bonfire #and you just think that he's just thinking and think nothing more #when suddenly a ball of white confectionary goodness comes bursting through the flames #and hatter is catching it in whatever manner and all you can think about is why the bonfire gave birth to a marshmallow

    I think part of the reason we thirst after niragi is because Dori needs to wear his hair out of his face. I mean, dude. Look how good you look when we can see your face.

    Grow it out, put a pony tail holder in it

    It’s that easy

    Chishiya

    Chishiya

    Chishiya

    "Stay awake Chishiya, we don't want to lose you, right now!" Yelled the braided girl with worried plaster on her face as she pressed the wounded shot hard to prevent the white hair boy from losing even more blood than he already did. Can't afford of losing her friend, she gives all of her power to save him.

    "No, no, no,"

    "We already come this far," told the girl, biting her bottom lips hard enough for the small amount of blood to come out with the tears escape from her eyes, mixed with the blood. However, Chishiya only stared at the skies, stay quiet for a moment as he felt his body become heavier to move. And only to hear a few sobs, from his surroundings.

    He knew, the chance of him surviving almost none since the bullet hit the important organs. He cursed himself for end up saving the boy that he just met a few weeks ago, Arisu. But if he didn't do that, they all will end up dead in this borderland since Arisu is the key for the games to end. It's funny, how at the beginning of this borderland, he only thinks of himself but in the end, he sacrificed himself for others.

    "Stop it Kuina, there's no use in saving me,"

    Finally, Chishiya spoke to them as he weakly pulled away Kuina's hands while his gaze was still glued to the blue skies.

    "Without you, we can't survive, Chishiya," told Arisu, kneeled beside the dying boy. Guilty already eat Arisu as soon as Chishiya saved him from the bullet.

    "Bullshit,"

    "Just leave and continue the game,"

    Kuina was about to talk to Chishiya but he already turned her down. His eyes were now too tired to stay awake, too tired to hold the pain. Finally, closed his eyes as his heartbeat weaker when the second goes by.

    Finally, I can rest in peace that what was he thought.

    Darkness began to surround him, the sob already gone. He couldn't hear the sob, nothing could be heard, now. That's the moment he thought that his soul was already separate from his body and the pain already gone but it's doesn't last long when he heard something slowly become loud.

    Chishiya

    Chishiya?

    Shuntaro Chishiya!!

    The unfamiliar voice called out his name out loud, made the poor boy jolt up from his slumber. As soon as he opens his eyes, he only met with the blurred figure sat in front of him. Blinked for few times, he finally got his vision back. Now his gaze was on the unfamiliar girl as he turns looked surrounded him. Feeling confused.

    I supposed to be dead, why the fuck has happened, he thought while touched his body. His long hair was now short, the wounded shot was now gone, It's like nothing happened to him and now he in the school.

    His gaze turned back to the girl that sat in front of him to only met with her confused expression.

    "What's wrong? You acting odd since this morning" told the girl. "Having a nightmare?"

    Chishiya only stays quiet as his eyes caught the name tag on the girl's uniform school.Y/N Fujii. The girl only frowned when she doesn't get an answer from him.

    "You're weird, come on Fukami already wait for us in front of the school since we already promised to study together at your place,"

    He only could nod his head and follow what you said, being confused about what happened to him. He couldn't do much but follow you.

    His late reaction, made you pulled him away from the seat with his and your bag already in your grasp. Both of you were now walked out of the school to met with the boy that you have been mention before. It's doesn't take much time since the classroom was on the first floor.

    As soon as both of you were already out of the school hall, Chishiya could see the tall figure stood in front of the school gate while that person's gaze was on his phone.

    "Fukami!" Yelled you happily while waving at the boy which got his attention as he waved back at you. However for the short boy, when he was close enough with the tall high school boy, his legs stop moving when the face becomes more clear for him to look.

    It's can't be, thought him. His inner was shocked but he keeps the same expression on his face, doesn't want the situation to become complicated even it's already.

    The boy that stood in front of him was so much familiar to him back at the borderland but judging by the boy's name and Fukami's reaction to seeing him. He sure that's not him but he can't deny that the boy awfully looks the same as one of the upper members of the military. Niragi Suguru. The only difference was his personality and hair. His long hair was now short as his got bang covered his forehead.

    He thought soon got cut off when you pulled him to walked beside you.

    "Don't just stand there, come on,"

    Doesn't know where to go, he just followed both of his supposed to be friends to his own new house in this world.

    "Why Chishiya seems odd today, Y/n?" Asked Fukami with a low tone to you but not low enough for the boy to not heard it. "Scary," muttered him again, only to earned your laugh.

    "Maybe he on his period," whisper you back jokingly but soon stop when Chishiya glared at you and at the other male. Chill ran down at your guy's body. "Sorry," told you quickly, only for the boy to sigh as his gaze turned to the sky.

    "Now, now, don't be so cold! Let's go get some ice cream before we go to Chishiya's house, should we?,"

    Fukami agreed with you and now only left is Chishiya as his eyes were still glued on the skies.

    "Chishiya, what about you?"

    Your question made the boy looked at you and once again sighed. There's no use to refused you because you would end up pulled him with you. Again.

    "Let's go,"

    Both of his new friends were now cheered happily and you were now linked arm together with the two boys to go to the ice cream store, near the school.

    Now it's the beginning of his new life, will he get to forget his past life?

    💕 Frenemies 💕

    Rating: PG-13

    Relationship: None

    Tags: swearing, suggestive conversations, implications of sexual activity, threats of violence, arguing (but it’s funny)

    Summary: Chisiya and Hatter drag each other straight to hell. (Based on some headcanons I made when I first joined the Tumblr AiB fandom because I think Chisiya and Hatter are the two biggest bitches at the damn Beach and I would absolutely LOVE to see them battle it out.)

    🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸

    Arisu is nervous.

    …Okay, he’s nervous a lot these days, but that’s just a side effect of living in the Borderlands.

    Today, though, he’s nervous for a new reason. A reason that involves being in a room with a group of (mostly) strangers and discussing the ins and outs of running a hotel at the end of the world.

    Yep, that’s right. It’s his first Executive Meeting and it’s been going…

    …Decently well, actually.

    Mira had taken him under her wing, waving him over and inviting him to sit next to her as soon as he walked in the room. Although she probably has some kind of ulterior motive, he’s just happy to be included, and takes his place at the table feeling a little less like a fish out of water.

    The meeting starts seven (and a half) minutes late when Hatter swans into the room with an iced coffee and a gruff looking Aguni in tow. There is obviously something between these two very unique men, but Arisu’s not sure what exactly it is…and, at this point, he’s too afraid to ask.

    By all accounts, the meeting begins rather quickly—although Hatter is the captain of this metaphorical ship, it seems that Kuzuryuu is at the helm today, steering the conversation from card collection to game theories to transporting players from the Beach to the game arenas. Arisu mentions the bus from his recent Four of Diamonds game and suggests bussing as a potentially fuel-saving alternative.

    “That’s not a bad idea,” Hatter says, mulling over the particulars—or maybe he’s just speaking slowly because he’s under the influence of some kind of substance, it’s difficult to tell with that guy, “Looks like our new friend is hiding a big brain under all that shaggy hair—I can relate.”

    “Arisu’s brain is big because he’s smart,” Chisiya comments, “yours is big due to inter-cranial swelling brought on by diving head-first into whatever bad idea happens to take your fancy.”

    Arisu’s heart skips a beat—not in the nice ‘I just made accidental eye contact with my crush’ kind of way, but in a ‘please don’t let the mercurial kimono man flip out and shoot this guy who is sort of my friend’ kind of way.

    Luckily, though, murder doesn’t seem to be on the man’s mind…at least, not right now. In an action that is both chilling and calm, he slides the shiny black sunglasses to rest on the top of his head.

    “Mori,” Hatter says solemnly, “get the board.”

    Aguni rolls his eyes and mutters something akin to ‘here we go again,’ but ultimately leaves his place at the head of the table to do as he’s bid.

    Arisu mood has shifted from ‘potentially not freaking out’ to ‘slightly freaking out and very confused.’ Mira lays a friendly hand on his shoulder and whispers to him that he’s ‘going to adore this,’ but that isn’t particularly helpful.

    “Now,” Hatter says, leaning back in his chair and tapping his fingertips together in a way that looks very devious, “I don’t suppose anyone would like to volunteer to be scorekeeper…”

    “Arisu should do it.”

    All eyes shift the nervous young man, who squirms uncomfortably in his seat at the thought of being involved in whatever the hell is going on.

    “I, uh—“

    “Good idea, Chisiya,” Mira chimes in, lips stretched into her signature unnerving smile, “since he’s new, he’ll be the least biased out of all of us.”

    “It’s easy,” Last Boss reassures him, “all you have to do is give a point to whoever delivers an insult.”

    Aguni reappears, pushing a white dry-erase board in front of him. The words “Hatter” and “Chisiya” have already been written at the top in blue marker, with a line going down the middle.

    “Uh, okay,” Arisu agrees—because he doesn’t really have a choice here, despite the fact that he has technically been asked to assist.

    “Marvelous,” Hatter exclaims, flashing Arisu a wide-mouthed smile. Arisu returns the gesture (albeit awkwardly) as he scurries his way to the front of the room.

    “Gentlemen, you know the rules,” Aguni grumbles, “no insulting mothers, no allusions to previous murders and/or crimes, and absolutely no slapping.”

    Hatter rolls his eyes at that.

    “If you cry, you lose. If you take more than ten seconds to respond, you lose,” Aguni continues, “Whoever has the most points after ten minutes gets to go first in the Lightning Round.”

    “That’s the best fuckin’ part,” Niragi interjects, “Hatter always kills it with the name-calling.”

    “Actually, they tied last time,” Ann recounts coolly, examining the perfect blood red of her manicure, “so this is a grudge match.”

    “Which I’m sure I’ll win,” Hatter adds very smugly.

    “Ah, such confidence,” Chisiya muses, “and here I thought you were completely devoid of redeeming qualities.”

    “Hey—you know we don’t count it until Kuzuryuu starts the clock,” Aguni chides, then turns to face the bespectacled lawyer, “You good to go?”

    “Yeah,” Kuzuryuu replies, his voice already tinged with exasperation, “ready when you are.”

    Arisu uncaps the marker in his hand and clenches his jaw—even though the air is thick with tension, he seems to be the only one feeling the effects. Maybe it’s always like this and he just has to get used to it.

    “Alright,” Kuzuryuu says. He pulls a stopwatch from his shorts pocket. “Three…two…one…go.”

    “You know,” Hatter says, “we never did discuss who would go first.”

    “What’s the old saying,” Chisiya replies, “Ah, right—‘age before beauty.’ That means you, doesn’t it?”

    Arisu puts a tick mark next to Chisiya’s name—which receives an affirmative nod from Aguni, much to his relief.

    “I may be older than you,” Hatter responds, “but perhaps that’s not a bad thing. With age comes wisdom and experience, which are two things you’ll probably never have…”

    One point next to Hatter’s name. Arisu begins to feel like he could maybe get the hang of this…

    “I was top of my class in medical school,” Chisiya remarks, “I have plenty of experience. In fact, we were doing a proctology unit right before I got to the Borderlands…”

    “Not sure how that’s relevant…”

    Chisiya shrugs.

    “I know an asshole when I see one.”

    The crowd ooh’s. Last Boss reaches into his pocket and takes out a small orange—maybe it’s a clementine, Arisu can’t really be sure—and begins meticulously peeling it.

    “Fuck, man,” Niragi heckles from the sidelines, “you gonna let him get away with that?”

    Last Boss wordlessly hands him a section of fruit, which Niragi absentmindedly accepts. Between his shirt and the way he laps the little wedge up with a swipe of his tongue, Arisu thinks he’d make an excellent lizard.

    “Patience, Niragi,” Hatter says, “He needs time to warm up and get all of these half-baked, lukewarm little jabs out of his system.”

    Two points each. They’re pretty good at this, but that’s probably because they’ve had plenty of practice; the existence of a pre-prepared board speaks to that.

    “I’m taking it easy today,” Chisiya replies, “Unlike some, I have nothing to prove…”

    The look he shoots Hatter is pure poison wrapped in a dagger-toothed smirk. Arisu has seen him make that expression before, but a little less gleeful than it is right now.

    “You know,” Hatter muses, pointing a lazy finger in Chisiya’s direction, “I think we could be friends after we leave the Borderlands. I’ll have to get you my phone number…”

    “Wait for it,” Aguni mumbles to Arisu.

    “…oh, I know! You can ask your father. He calls me when he’s lonely,” Hatter gloats, “Just check under ‘Daddy.’ I’m sure it’ll be there.”

    “Oh shit,” Niragi shouts, popping another slice of orange into his mouth, “your dad would have to be desperate to bang this guy!”

    “Hmm. If my father calls you…that,” Chisiya says, “then that would make you a grandpa.”

    Chisiya pauses for a moment and puts his hand over his chest, as if he’s about to offer heartfelt advice.

    “I’m proud of you for finally acting your age.”

    Mira gasps. Aguni leans in Arisu’s direction and discreetly tells him to give Chisiya two points for that one. Even Last Boss, who had been fully devoted to getting all the little white strings of membrane off of his orange, looks up to see Hatter’s reaction.

    …But Hatter doesn’t seem to react much at all. In fact, he seems to not be paying attention to the conversation at all; with his lips pressed into a tight line and his gaze is fixed towards the ceiling, as if lost in thought.

    Arisu jumps a little when Hatter suddenly smacks his hand down on the table with a heavy thud!

    “I’ve done it,” he exclaims, “I’ve finally figured it out!”

    Chisiya’s eyebrows raise.

    “That you’re a pathetic, lonely man who hides from his feelings behind a haze of sex, alcohol, and petty displays of power?”

    “Oh, everybody knows that,” Hatter spits back, hand flicking a lazy point towards Arisu and the board, “Statements of fact don’t count.”

    Arisu nods quickly, using his index finger to rub out the half-line he’d made.

    “Now, as I was saying,” Hatter continues, “I’ve finally figured out why your hair looks like ten different kinds of Kentucky-fried tragic.”

    “Does that count as a statement of fact,” Ann asks flatly.

    “It’s not that bad,” Mira counters, “I mean, it’s definitely bad, but I think a deep conditioning treatment could go a long way…”

    “Hm, yes. Conditioner. A vital part of any hair-care routine,” Hatter says, running a hand through his own dark locks as if to showcase their silky shine, “You know, hair care is a passion of mine…”

    “One minute left,” Kuzuryuu interrupts, “if you’ve got a point, make it.”

    “Fine, fine. The reason our friend and colleague has the crispiest hair in seven prefectures,” Hatter explains, “is because conditioner is kept on the highest shelf in the store and he’s just too short to reach it.”

    Niragi shrieks in laughter. Hatter leans his elbows onto the table and rests his chin on his laced-together fingers—like a teenage girl at a sleepover about to spill the latest gossip for her eager friends.

    “Don’t worry, sweetheart,” he says with a over-exaggerated pout, “next time, I’ll help you.”

    The smile that splits his lips is pure venom, and even a few of the other executives wince. Chisiya cocks his head to the side and gives Hatter a quick once-over with his gaze.

    “I don’t know, I think I’m the ideal height,” he says, “I’ve got the perfect angle to gut you like a fish.”

    “Good luck getting through my abs of steel.”

    “You’d cut like butter and you know it—“

    “Actually,” Last Boss interjects, “it depends on the knife. I’d imagine you’d choose a scalpel, given your background in medicine, which is good for smaller, more precise cuts. But you may want to consider something a bit more practical for close-combat…”

    “Right. Uh,” Aguni cuts him off, “let’s move on to the Lightning Round.”

    Arisu is glad he doesn’t have to hear any more about the finer points of evisceration—it’s one thing to see it on TV or in a video game, but knowing that the scary man who carries around a big knife has actual experience in stabbing and slicing makes him feel a bit ill-at-ease.

    “Since Chisiya has a two-point advantage, he’ll get to go first,” Aguni concludes, “and remember, this is the Lightning Round. Gotta be quick with it.”

    Chisiya smirks.

    “Think you can keep up?”

    “Can you?”

    “Clock starts…” Kuzuryuu drones, “now.”

    “Cute budget Hugh Hefner cosplay. Compensating for something?”

    Arisu’s eyes grow large. Chisiya’s certainly not holding back now.

    “Yeah, I’m compensating,” Hatter rebuffs, “compensating for whatever the fuck boring-ass, bargain-bin bullshit you’ve got going on.”

    “It appears I’ve struck a nerve…”

    “I’m gonna strike you into the fuckin’ wall—“

    “No slapping,” Aguni reminds him, crossing his arms across his chest.

    “I had no idea you were so fragile,” Chisiya muses, “So sorry for hurting your feelings.”

    “Nothing you say can hurt me,” Hatter retorts while narrowing his eyes, “I work retail.”

    The squabbling continues, each man giving as good as he gets. It’s impressive—and uncomfortably fast, with Arisu scrambling to mark down each point in time to hear the next rapid-fire insult.

    A tap on his shoulder breaks his concentration. Arisu turns to see Aguni leaning slightly towards him while keeping his eyes on the argument in front of him.

    “Even ‘em out,” Aguni mumbles.

    “Huh?”

    “The points,” he clarifies, keeping his voice low, “doesn’t matter how, just make sure they have the same amount.”

    “But—“

    “The only thing they want more than to win is to not lose,” Aguni nods in the direction of Chisiya and Hatter’s rapid-fire squabbling, “If they tie, nobody complains, and we all get out of here in one piece.”

    “I get that,” Arisu replies, “But, won’t the others say something? I mean, Niragi seems pretty invested—“

    “It was his idea,” Aguni says, turning his attention towards the the man in question, “He’s a pretty smart kid, actually. Just a little…well, you know…”

    As if on cue, Niragi does one of his weird tongue-sticky-outy moves, the grip on his rifle tightening as if it’s some kind of deadly security blanket.

    “…Yeah, I, uh, I see what you mean.”

    Arisu gets to work. In order to make it seem like he was actually counting this whole time, he adds a handful of tick marks next to each name—a move that grants him an nod of approval from Aguni, who then claps his hands together to get everyone’s attention.

    “Last one,” he announces, “make it count.”

    “Hm,” Chisiya says, “I would, but…he’s not really worth the effort.”

    “Cute,” Hatter replies, “you’re just…oh, you’re just adorable, Shinsuke.”

    “You know thats not my name.”

    “I know that I don’t care.”

    “Alright, alright,” Aguni interrupts before the conversation could devolve into further squabbling, “Arisu’s gonna call it.”

    Once again, all eyes are on Arisu—it’s less unnerving this time around, but he still feels a modicum of panic set in as the group waits for his verdict.

    “It’s uh,” he gulps nervously, sidestepping so the board is visible to the audience, “it’s a tie, I guess…”

    “Well, well, well,” Hatter gloats, “looks like, once again, you’ve failed to best me in a battle of wits. Better luck next time, my dear.”

    “I’d hardly call it a battle,” Chisiya sasses, “well, maybe for you, but I certainly didn’t have any trouble.”

    A hand pats Arisu on the shoulder—once, twice, a heavy but good-natured succession of thuds—and Aguni nods his head in the direction of the table. Arisu takes that as permission to abandon his post as scorekeeper and slip back into his original seat.

    This is…oh, boy, Usagi’s gonna love hearing about this.
