    Summary

    He’s safe, he’s won his game, the dead can’t hurt him now. That’s what Neku thinks as he laughs alongside his newfound friends. But what he doesn’t realize is that while he may have won the Game, that doesn’t mean the Game is done with him. He may think he’s free, but he’s on borrowed time and a certain Composer was ready to show him the joys of being dead, again.

    Summary

    Joshua had always been a pale, skinny boy in the years Neku had known him, but the Joshua that lies before Neku is only an imitation at best.

    Summary

    “It’s rude to stare,” the boy says, and of course it’s how he starts a conversation. Even so, his voice is quiet, only hinting at his usual mockery.

    Neku tries to act as if the boy is talking to someone else, but Neku can still feel his eyes on him, and with a sigh Neku turns again to face him once more. “You’re the one staring, and aren’t you not supposed to talk to strangers?”

    Joshua, it has to be Joshua, with his voice and eyes and the way his ashy hair curls at the ends, even though he is so young and very much alive.

    “You're not a stranger to Shibuya. Though I must admit you’re…” Joshua studies him. “...not like any of the other Reapers, I suppose.”

    -

    [Or, Neku finds himself in the past.]

    Summary

    Sanae Hanekoma broke every major rule for Shibuya and has been on the run for five years, stalling his punishment for Falling. Using every trick in the book served him well until now, but he has one more trick - one more solution - to try before his time is truly up. He just has to make it to Neku first.

    The day had finally come for Neku to help him out, whether he wanted to or not.

    Summary

    Some day Neku was going to break out of Shinjuku and be real again. Some day he’s going to Shiki’s house and see what new clothes she has put on the mannequin, or if she had put purple headphones on it. Or he would watch Beat skate again. Or listen to Rhyme talk.
    Or keep waiting at Hachiko.
    The possibilities were endless, if only he were real again.


    neku and the three-year gap, of making friends with your murderer (again), forgotten skateboard maneuvers, angels in murals, mannequins wearing miniskirts, crows too smart for their own good, making peace with more than one kind of ghosts, and surviving yourself.

    Summary

    Neku finds a new hobby documenting the tiny things.

    (Originally supposed to be a Tumblr post about a headcanon. It turned into a fic. Then Joshua demanded to be implied.)

    Summary

    Neku’s last memory when he wakes up at the Scramble Crossing on the first day back alive is a gun against his head, in the hands of a boy he trusted, and the sound of a shot being fired.

    Summary

    After having disappeared off to who knows where for five years, Joshua is back and just as much of a cagey obnoxious know-it-all as ever. More alarmingly, he has not aged a day. Hanekoma is gone and his Angelic replacement isn't giving up any information either. Against his friends' advice and his own better judgment, Neku finds himself playing detective to figure out what happened, even though all he really wants to do is get Joshua to talk to him.
    Neku quickly discovers that even if you've been nursing an ill-advised crush since you were fifteen and fantasizing about it on the regular, dragging a god down off his high horse is far from the easiest thing in the world. Thankfully, he has come equipped with enough determination to kill a man three times his size.

    Post-canon Neku-POV Joshua-centric worldbuilding-y shipping nonsense with a bit of plot for flavor. Original DS TWEWY canon; all others pointedly disregarded. I know I'm making this sound pretty emo with the tags and the summary, but I promise we have fun here.

    Summary

    “Hey,” Neku says. “You actually showed up.”

    “Only for you, partner.”

    “I figured you were here for the curry.”

    “The curry," Joshua says, “is an unfortunate consequence.”

    Summary

    Its not a bad idea to stay on good terms with your omnipotent neighbors.

    It is, however, a gigantic pain in the ass. But that's what Neku gets for attempting to be friends with what might very well be Shibuya's biggest, most stuck up, bitch.

    Summary

    “I don’t believe even Neku knows what he’ll do, but I can say with certainty: subconsciously, he knows the choice he wants to make.”

    “Is that with or without you imprinting a bunch of leading phrases into the poor kid’s head?”

    “Now really, Sanae, would I do that?”

    Hanekoma raises an eyebrow as he stares pointedly at Josh in silent answer.

    “... Fair point. But no, I’ll honour Neku’s trust in me and let him choose. I’ll pay it back in kind by trusting that he’ll make the right decision.”

    “There’s a chance he could say no. Let his abilities fade into the background. Considered that?”

    “I can’t say I have,” Joshua smiles. “There’s simply no need.”

    -

    Neku's been waiting for Josh to reappear for two years now, since he won the Game and helped save Shibuya. Despite returning to the RG, a part of him is still tied to the UG, a tenuous connection that he can’t quite bring himself to cut. When Josh finally does deign to make an reappearance, Neku realises that sooner or later he's going to have to choose: the RG, or the UG? Set in a world where Another Day didn't happen, exactly, but still contains major NEO TWEWY plot spoilers!

    Summary

    Joshua pauses for a moment as if he were carefully thinking about what to say next. “I’m sorry to hear that you had a rough start, but based on what I gathered from your tirade, it sounds like you still managed to get a happy ending. Does that still not satisfy you?”

     

    Shoka’s expression is unimpressed. “I’m calling Neku.”

     

    Joshua actually looks panicked for a second, but he’s quick to recover. “Are you seriously trying to blackmail me? By threatening to tattle on me like a child?”

    Summary

    “wasn’t expecting to see you so soon.”
    “i can’t just leave my partner in the same situation i was in, now can i? wouldn’t be very nice of me.” joshua tilts his head towards another noise, and neku’s eyes flit to it and back without really thinking about it. and then—
    “of course you would know,” neku groans. joshua just laughs, airy, and slides neku’s drink across the table to steal a sip. “what do you want?”
    “can’t we just have a courtesy visit?”

    (the effects of being in-between for three years aren't lost on neku. when joshua asks him to help shibuya's newest ghost problem, he accepts.)
