    Summary

    He’s not okay, Hasumi is learning, and that’s something he must acknowledge in order to overcome it, which is, like all situations not subject to his control and scrutiny, a massively frustrating thorn in his side. But like this, with Kiryuu’s warmth bleeding into him and their fingers tangled in silent, mutual support, it’s a manageable pricking he will gradually learn to triumph.

    Summary

    He doesn't let his hand go, Keito notices, not after he places the other around his waist again and nudges him to place his own free one on his shoulder. It's unprompted and out of place but also natural and comfortable and familiar, and Keito finds himself falling yet again into the routine of the year he's tried so hard to compress down into the back of his brain.

     

    There's no music, he wants to half-heartedly point out. There's no music, and they're slowly dancing around to the wisps of the wind and the crackles of laughter from inside the apartment like idiots. Even this sort of idiocy feels familiar.

     

    or, alternatively: rk throw a christmas party in their apartment. shenanigans ensue

    Summary

    The temple is not so archaic as to forgo electricity. The interior is warmed by lanterns, paper and wood framing man-made fire, suffused over the traditional art on the walls. It's a nice place, fragrant with incense and the surrounding woods. For it to be a home—nestled in seeming ease among the dead and those close to it—makes Kuro's steps wary, his muffled footsteps' echoes shyer. Keito's family must be in another wing. Here, with endless halls crisscrossing the other, Kuro is lulled to thinking their feet are the only pair to have ever tread these floors.
