Halloween Challenge: Trick or Drabble

We've been a little inactive lately because stuff happened but we're back now with our annual

Halloween: Trick or Drabble Challenge!!

step one: people who want to will set up "houses" by commenting on this Trick or Drabble post with their usernames.

You have the option of creating a candy bowl with options of candy that people can select from. For example, if I were to set up a candy bowl, I would do it in the following way:
kira_shadow's: candy bowl:
-Assorted Kanju
-Assorted Juniors
-... etc

You don't need one of those, though, if you're willing to write whatever, just say so.

If you have a limited time, say so up front (i.e. "I can only give out 10 drabbles!) because we would rather you participate a little rather than not at all. But we'll leave this go for 2 weeks so people have plenty of time. Even if you've never written for us before, that's okay! This is a party! everybody is welcome to try.

step two: members request a drabble simply by commenting on the user they want with "Trick or Drabble!"

If the user has a candy bowl you can request something from it! If you want something specific that they didn't list, or if the user doesn't have a candy bowl, by all means ask for it, but the Treater is under no obligation to fill your request! You can also ask to be surprised! You don't need to know the person to comment on their "house" and you can comment to as many or as few houses as you feel comfortable!

step three: the original commenter will reply with a treat!

I'm suspending the usual 100-word rule for this challenge. You can give out tootsie rolls (sentence fics) or king-sized candy bars(longer drabbles), so that anybody who wants to can play. This is just a fun way for us to participate as a community. Of course if you want to write 100 words, go right for it!

And if you're up for it, make your candy Halloween flavored! But if you'd rather not, don't feel bound by it. You can decide how much/little you want to get into it!

Thanks to moonspoken for letting us borrow her idea, and if you have any questions go ahead and ask. Pimp it out so we get as many people playing as possible for the next two weeks!

Isn't it great how I was all "100 word drabbles" and then Danji and Teppei dropped in and went "nope" and dumped plot and feelings into my lap. Jerks v__v;

Anyway uh, there's an unwritten part 3 to the two Beginners pwps I have so far, and this comes after that.


It's been years since they've seen each other last. Danji almost passes by Teppei's office in the Kanagawa station without realizing who's sitting behind the desk inside, but he reads the name placard on the door out of the corner of his eye and does the requisite double take.


"Yes? Oh, it's Tachibana!"

Teppei looks up and his smile is still as quick as it used to be, still as bright. He's less tanned than he used to be, that summer when they had all run around lawlessly outside, and his hair is clipped closer. There's an air of maturity and responsibility around him now that Danji thinks Teppei wears as well as he used to wear their patrol uniforms when they were younger.

Teppei stands up to give Danji a sharp salute, which Danji echoes, before laughing and stepping around his desk to reach for Danji's hand to shake. It's only a few steps from his desk to where Danji is standing just inside the door, but Danji can see the limp in Teppei's gait even in those three steps.

Danji had heard about it from Yamane, how Teppei had strained his knee irreparably in another of the marathons that he'd started running again for the local branch of the police force, but that was two years ago and the word had been that Teppei had healed fine. He hadn't imagined it would be this bad, and certainly not that it would still be affecting Teppei's everyday life like this.

Reading the expression on Danji's face, Teppei laughs again, shrugging. "It's not as bad as it looks, really. Plus it's been raining these days, so the old knee is stiffer than usual."

Danji isn't stupid though and he makes a face at Teppei because apparently Teppei thinks he is. "This is why you started doing admin work." It's not a question. "Huh, I don't know why I never connected your knee injury to your job transfer before."

"Cause you're stupid," Teppei says, and there's the old sarcastic bite in his words, even though his eyes are sparkling as he grins at Danji.

Obviously he can't just take the insult sitting down, so Danji shoves at Teppei a little, and Teppei shoves him back, and soon they're tussling good-naturedly and laughing like they'd been the best of friends in school instead of an odd cross between rivals and something much more intense than mere friendship. Danji knows he should stop – Teppei's office isn't particularly large so they could easily get hurt, and the door is still open so anyone could walk by and see, and it's just silly for two grown men to be acting like this. Then Teppei pushes him squarely in the chest, and he pushes back a little too hard, and suddenly Teppei is windmilling his arms trying to stay upright. Danji grabs his arm on instinct, steadying him before he falls.

"Sorry," he mutters, just as Teppei says the same, and when they both laugh it's so awkward that Danji feels his face flush.

He lets go of Teppei's arm, but Teppei doesn't let go of his. "Tachibana," Teppei says, and then pauses. A tip of pink tongue comes out to wet his lips, an old nervous habit that Danji is surprised to still recognize. "Tachibana... If you heard about my injury, then you must've heard about me and Hiro, too?"

Danji nods. Of course he'd heard about it. They'd gotten almost to the altar before it had ended in flames. Danji still had the wedding invitation somewhere under a pile of papers in his apartment, wherever he'd hidden the card in a fit of irritation after a week of being mocked by its fancy gold-plated script from his fridge where he'd first put it.

"Did you—did you ever wonder why?"

As though from far away, Danji hears the pleading tone in Teppei's voice, feels Teppei's hand slide down his arm to grip his fingers. This is the sort of moment he'd wished for years ago when he was young and believed the world would give him his fair chance if he only worked hard for it, the sort of moment he'd already given up on waiting for because he'd learned that love wasn't for people like him, not in the society he lives in.

"Shimura," he begins.

Teppei starts moving his thumb in small circles on the back of Danji's hand.

"Shimura," he says again, in a completely different tone this time.

"Ask me why," Teppei says, and Danji can't help but laugh a little that Teppei still likes forcing people to drag answers out of him, all drama and (now not so) teenage angst.

Well, if Teppei can still be the same person he used to be, then Danji can too. "We're at work," he admonishes, knitting his eyebrows together tightly, "stop fondling my hand in public. When will you ever take things seriously, Shimura?"

"Close the door then, you're closer to it." Teppei points with his chin at the door. "And hey, I take everything seriously you ass!"

Nudging the door shut with his foot, Danji looks pointedly down at his hand that Teppei still hasn't let go of.

Teppei turns his nose up and, in that flippant way he has of saying the most gut-wrenching things, "I'm seriously holding on to you, this time."


(lol oh god it didn't even fit into one comment ;alkjgsdalm Danji and Teppei are JERKS! XD)

ETA: I'm sorry if there are typos and things, I... didn't actually re-read before posting. ;;;

They... had years together at least? :x

Man but you know, I had thought about writing Danji/Teppei futurefic when the drama was still airing, but decided against it because I wanted Teppei and Hiro to be together ultimately. But then I was so disappointed with their final confession scene and how their relationship/crush on each other didn't actually affect them (in terms of like, motivating them to work harder for the other, etc) that I don't feel bad about breaking them up at all. x_x Sorry Hiro, I did like you a lot!

I see, that drama kind of left me with the impression that it all ended in a hurry. But I loved Teppei/Hiro too much, and I think they changed each other before in the drama. That said, I think kisumai's dramas should have better screenwriters *sob* Nojima-san is good, how could he write stuff like RnM?! T_T
Oct. 24th, 2012 09:29 pm (UTC)
sorry for replying so late ;_; I didnt have a lot of time to read fic these days *sob*


and all the little things you put in there...
I really envy the way you have with words. you only need a few to say a lot ._. I can't do that *waah*

Oct. 25th, 2012 04:29 am (UTC)
It's okay, I know you've had a lot to deal with irl lately ♥ (hope it all calms down for you soon! :<)

Teppei and Danji write their own canon in my head, I love it \XD/

OH GOOOOOOOOD I DIDN'T EVEN REMEMBER THE ENDING OF THIS DRABBLE WAS LIKE THAT. 8X seriously. omg. omg. omg. "I'm seriously holding on to you, this time." IDEKW but it's so full of... feelings? T____T and now i started missing that drama and i remembered why i ship those two so much. (especially after hiro/teppei was such a disappointment. or at least the confession part. because pffff wth could they have at least tried to make them more cute? :( but lmao, on the other hand it only made my danji/teppei feels even harder and maybe it was easier to have only one ultimate shippable pairing there? XD)


and those two are such idiots really. omg all that defamation and trying to annoy each other while at the same time they've clearly missed each other so much. XD and that's why they fit so well together. two idiots together. two jerks. who i happen to love. 8X


Nudging the door shut with his foot, Danji looks pointedly down at his hand that Teppei still hasn't let go of.


....lol i shouldn't spam your fics.
