fandom Hikaru no Go
characters Shindo, Touya


It isn’t until Touya suddenly pounces on him and declares very loudly that Shindo is his Bestest Friend Ever that Hikaru realises something is very wrong. His hands are full of empty beer bottles, so he tries his best to keep his balance, and Touya at a distance, without full use of his appendages; not surprisingly, he isn’t very successful at either.

So they fall over, and Hikaru thinks his back may be broken, until Touya giggles and shifts a little and then there’s a lot of pain, so if his back was broken he wouldn’t be able to feel it, right?

“Ow,” he says.

“I love you, Shindo!” Touya says.

“Ahahaha,” Waya, Isumi, Honda, Yashiro, Saeki, Ashiwara and every other go pro who isn’t a total dork and therefore was invited to Hikaru’s housewarming party say.

“Okay, so when you’re done laughing at my pain, could you help us up?” Hikaru snaps, his eyes narrowed at the people standing closest by in a way that he’s been told is very scary. Waya is impervious and wanders away to search for another beer, and Isumi is impervious too but he isn’t heartless like Waya, so he and Yashiro each grab one of Touya’s arms and heave him up. His knees look wobbly, though, so Hikaru quickly scrambles away in case Touya falls back down on top of him again; been there, done that, and ow.

He gets up a little gingerly, rubbing at his back with hands that are no longer holding empty beer bottles, he belatedly notices. Touya has been led over to the sofa by Isumi, who smiles patiently as Touya squints at him, then declares brightly that they have the same colour eyes, wow! Hikaru shakes his head; who would’ve figured that Touya was a ridiculously happy drunk?

He gathers up the bottles from the floor and takes them into the kitchen, where the bin is already overflowing with paper plates and napkins. He stares at the mess for a moment, but then shrugs and stuffs the bottles in anyway; he can worry about the bag breaking when it inevitably does.

“The bag will break when you take it out,” Touya observes from behind him, sounding more sober even if not actually so.

“Yeah,” Hikaru says. There’s a brief silence, and he braces himself for another back-breaking pounce that doesn’t come; instead, very careful arms wind themselves around his waist, and very careful words are whispered against the nape of Hikaru’s neck.

“Yeah,” Hikaru says again. “I love you too.”

Touya giggles.

Awwww man Touya, you're sly when drunk. Or half-drunk.

No Ogata/Ashiwara? *makes puppy eyes at you*

I love your Hikago. I don't think anyone writes Hikago the way you do-- it's such a nice mixture of mellowness and humor.

“Ahahaha,” Waya, Isumi, Honda, Yashiro, Saeki, Ashiwara and every other go pro who isn’t a total dork and therefore was invited to Hikaru’s housewarming party say. That line amused me.

The last part is really nice, and I'm so happy you're writing Hikago again.

I'm not aware that I ever really stopped, but thank you? I do love writing HikaGo; there's something about it that makes it (dare I say) quite easy to write.

Ah, sorry. I worded it poorly. What I meant that it's been a while since I've read your Hikago fics and I'm estatic. :D

Eh heh heh. Getting the feeling that Touya likes being drunk and plays it up a little. What a sneak.

Love the fact that Isumi and Waya are impervious to Hikaru's scary glare, but that Isumi isn't heartless enough to leave him lying there.

Touya was quite the amusing drunk in my head.
