- Hunter X Hunter (6)
Everything feels wrong.
Distorted and nightmare-ish, sort of like a bad dream he can't wake up from.
Because at the prime age of twenty, Killua Zoldyck has just lost it all. His family, his inheritance, and his life. He's stuck—stuck hating his predicament, his parents, and maybe most importantly, he's stuck hating himself.
And maybe Heaven Nightclub has just the answer he's looking for. Maybe he can find solace in this establishment with people like him.
Maybe, just maybe, a man who goes by the name of Gon makes everything feel a little less wrong.
((or: Killua is kicked out and disowned by his family for being gay. Gon frequents a gay club and is one of the most sought-out men there. Together, they’ll take on life lessons that will change them both.))

Gon and Killua were supposed to be inseparable.
Wherever Gon went, Killua followed—always beside him, maybe one step behind. Killua hadn’t found his reason for living yet, but Gon’s words on Whale Island had been so encouraging, so gentle and full of love, that Killua found himself following behind Gon’s step.
And that’s where everything goes wrong.
They’re twelve, just twelve, when the Phantom Troupe grabs them.
They’re twelve when the Phantom Troupe takes Gon from Killua.
They’re twelve when Gon goes where Killua can no longer follow.
Killua is sixteen, when he finally finds Gon again.
And he’s nothing like he remembers.
((or: Nobunaga manages to get Gon into the Phantom Troupe. Killua spends the following four years looking, until he finally finds Gon again.))
- Part 1 of I'm Home
Killua has lost count of the years.
He doesn’t know what day it is, or the year he’s in, or how many times his birthday has passed. He stopped counting—because it was just a bitter reminder of the world that is now long gone.
Instead, he fights for every passing day to stay alive. Buildings have crumbled, plants have overturned concrete, fond memories have faded. He holds Nanika close, knowing anyone who sees her will try to kill her for what she is.
The years pass in a blur—a monotonous repetition of “fighting for your life”.
Until one Gon Freecss stumbles upon him, and offers refuge.
Until one Gon Freecss is kind, and loving, and the reason he starts counting the years again.
((or: It's the apocalypse. It's been eight years and Killua has given up on everything, until meeting Gon changes that.))
He misses it. Fighting.
Ballet took off the nervous edge from not being as active as he used to, but it didn’t quite replace the feeling or tension he felt during a good sparring. He misses the feeling of his heart at his throat, pounding, as he swings fist and foot, technique after technique, to knock his opponent out.
So he doesn’t protest when Bisky takes him to the industrial zone in YorkNew City, to some underground ring she supposedly sponsors. He watches as his world tilts on his axis, and he gets thrown into a world he didn’t know existed.
He watches as Gon Freecss comes stumbling into his life, and turns it completely upside with one swift punch to the gut.
((or: Killua does ballet but wishes for a little more in his life, and Gon participates in a fight club as the undefeated fighter. Their paths cross, and there grows a little something more.))
In two weeks, it’ll be Valentine’s Day. In two weeks, Gon plans to confess his feelings to his best friend of seven years. In two weeks, Gon Freecss will hand Killua Zoldyck a confession.
Except he wasn’t really expecting his best friend to walk in on him writing said letter—and demanding he help write it.
((or: Gon is trying his best to confess his feelings to Killua and Killua is just one dense idiot.))
