    Summary

    Mindreading sounds like an entirely advantageous ability for an apprentice detective.

    Except, Shuichi can’t control his. And it’s painful - excruciatingly painful.

    Names, birthdays, loved ones, lost ones, dinner plans, favourite Netflix shows - all echoing from the people around him non-stop, overlapping and resounding within his skull. Shuichi just wants one moment of goddamn quiet.

    He gets what he wants, in completely inconvenient circumstances.

    By the process of elimination, it could be deduced that the boy with the choppy purple hair and crocodile tears was the only possible culprit.

    But Shuichi can’t prove it. Because there was no reading Kokichi Ouma’s tangled up mind.

    Summary

    “...Inosuke, do you know what the words on your wrist mean?”

    Inosuke is silent.

    “...Do you know what a soulmate is?”

    Inosuke is silent.

    “He doesn’t know anything!” Zenitsu shouts, which does nothing but rile Inosuke up.

     

    Tanjiro’s had to explain soulmates to his younger siblings, but he never thought he’d have to explain soulmates to his soulmate.

    Summary

    The thing is, hanahaki is an emotional disease.

    Its very existence isn’t rational or logical. Its presence in its victim’s lungs requires concepts of perception and belief and love. Genuine, painful love. Not the kind of fleeting (though admittedly intense) crushes that rarely last more than four months. It’s a gradual build-up over long periods of time, creeping and growing until it can’t be denied anymore. Until it just is. It sits there, proud and shiny, as a fact of life.

    Even when Ouma-kun is being an asshole to everyone around him, even when Ouma-kun is lying through his teeth just because he can, even when Ouma-kun holds a fundamentally different point of view to him and they get into arguments, Shuichi still can’t imagine spending his life with another person by his side.

    He loves Ouma-kun.

    - - - - -

    Hanahaki is as beautiful as it is tragic.

    (aka, saihara’s story through living, chess, loving, morbid clubs, dying, and everything else in-between)

    Summary

    The room is quiet, but he knows that won't last. He’s just come back from an unreasonably long expedition, and while his first love is the sea, he’s overwhelmingly happy to be home. Which is a weird sentiment to hold, at least for him. He barely even lives in this house. There’s no reason for it to feel as familiar as it does, and yet the fact that it’s empty feels wrong, somehow.

    Well, either way, his friends have insisted on celebrating his return. He’ll be the first to admit his excitement—he’s no stranger to parties, especially ones that are probably too big to be organized by people who have absolutely no clue what they’re doing.

     

    Rantaro and his friends have a celebratory sleepover. Naturally, chaos ensues.

    Summary

    “They had to call him out early while you two were in transit,” the producer tuts, bored eyes glancing over his clipboard. Much as Shuichi is tempted to hate each and every person who’s ever worked for Team Danganronpa, it’s… a little bit more complicated than that. There’s no malice in this man’s face, only efficiency, and Shuichi finds himself looking away; not because he hates the guy speaking, but because he doesn’t.

    That wasn’t an answer to his question, though. “Just one other person?” Shuichi prompts. “Who was it?” He’s tempted to tack on, ah, if you don’t mind my asking, but as much as Shuichi doesn’t necessarily hate this dude, he also doesn’t feel particularly compelled to go out of his way for any pleasantries.

    He doesn’t seem bothered, though. “Ouma Kokichi,” the producer reads, his voice flat, like the name means nothing to him at all.

    ---

    The first time Shuichi sees Kokichi again since leaving the Team Danganronpa facility, he calls a sixteen year old girl a bitch to her face.
