    Summary

    This is how it goes:

    Five children are born in Shibuya. Not all at the same time, not all the same age, but five children are born, and a shimmering figure, cloaked in glowing white, visits each child as they enter this world.

     

    A reincarnation AU: Neku, Shiki, Beat, Rhyme, and Eri are all born again, having died after spending over 50 years all living together with the sixth member of their family, Joshua. They all start without their memories, but one by one, the past comes knocking on their door.

    Luckily, they all have a guardian angel to keep these troublesome kids safe.

    “Okay, but poptarts are NOT a sandwich!”

    Josh laughs. “They totally are, come on Neku! It’s a filling contained in the center of a carbohydrate! That’s a sandwich!”

    There’s a lot Neku doesn’t know.

    What he does know is that petting Josh’s wings is akin to petting a cat.

    Summary

    One year after the Long Game, a tall boy named Yuuto Kimura, who has messy black hair, glasses, and bright green eyes, stumbles into Neku's life, and he can't help but let him get close, letting him join the circle of friends.

    One year after the Long Game, Joshua aches to hang out with Neku again, but the restrictions he's gained for his transgressions are very clear: Yoshiya Kiryu, Composer of Shibuya, is not to interact with Neku Sakuraba.

    (But every rule has a loophole.)

    Summary

    Someone’s feeling affectionate.”

    Josh snorts, and rolls his eyes. “Like you’re gonna stop me,” he says, one arm wrapped around Neku as he leans against him on the couch, free hand running fingers through the--miraculously ungelled today--soft orange hair.

    Summary

    A city pulses through his veins, burns with gasoline fire and souls ablaze. It eats the oxygen in his lungs, as he tries to hold on, hold it back, no water to quench these flames.

    Shiki knows her friends. Loves them. Would bleed for them.
    But that doesn’t change the fact that pricking yourself with a sewing needle repeatedly stings.

    Summary

    “Oh.” And then. “Well, I wanna be a guard!”

    “That’s a big decision. What makes you so sure?” Joshua asks, standing and stretching out. He’s so tall.

    Neku sits down, weaving the flowers together like his mom taught him. “I wanna protect my momma and my dad, and the people in my village! I wanna make sure everyone has good lives! If the guards can let people be peaceful, I wanna do that!”

    “Even if it’s at the cost of peace for yourself?”

    Neku Sakuraba, age eight, wanders across a god while visiting a shrine.

    Summary

    Snapshots of intertwined lives (or, well, existences), moments of peace and laughter, an ache that lingers. A family knitting itself together, with a city at the heart.

    A series of drabbles done for TWEWYtober, 2018, focusing on the family found. Joshua, Neku, Shiki, Eri, Beat, and Rhyme, with their (semi-decent excuse for a) father Hanekoma.

    From complex relationships with makeup, to dreaming of Shibuya, and family movie nights where none of these children know how to sit on a couch, they all find a way to integrate one-another into a queerplatonic polypile.

    Summary

    “Don’t do it.”

    Joshua flinches at the sound of the voice, back hitting the foot of the couch. The gun in hand, safety still on thank god, falls to the floor with a dull thud. The figure in front of him bends down and scoops up the weapon.

     

    Joshua's path changes when he meets himself. Neku's path continues on when an angel visits him in a fevered haze

    Summary

    “My warmth is an illusion and I will turn ice cold if you don’t get off of me,” he says, an icicle hand being lifted up, blue-tinged skin creeping closer.

    But the threat doesn’t compare to the chill that seeps into Neku’s bones at the reminder.

     

    But it's a Conversation, I just can't have tonight.

    Summary

    "Shibuya sings.

    There is Music in the air, dancing to the beat, filtered through sunbeams from windows and old wooden tables.

    Joshua stands at the center of it, twirling, twisting through the air. He spins, the light catches him, musical notes spilling from his body, an overflowing waterfall of music exploding into the air.

    In their cozy apartment, Neku stands and watches."

    Summary

    Feathers drift through the air, suspended in space, some fluttering their way to the ground.

    The apartment is filled with them, scattered everywhere. Opening the door kicks them up, and they resume their lazy drifting.

    “Okay, what’s up? It looks like you killed a dozen swans for their feathers in here.”

    Joshua glances at Neku, and in the most petulant voice, says, “Save me, I’m molting.”

    Summary

    Lightning frying every nerve, electricity searing through his body, blood turning to molten lava as he burns, as his consciousness is stretched thinner and thinner and his body disintegrates and his connections are made and---

     

     

     

     

    Joshua wakes up screaming.

    Air shreds its way out of his lungs, throat torn raw from its claws.

    He calls for Neku, because he doesn't know what else to do.

    (Part 3 in the series, will spoil the other parts if read first, and also not make much sense).

    Summary

    Shibuya swirls around him, unravelled threads twisting, digging into his skin. He is lost in the staves of Music threading to become a part of his own. Awareness blossoms like bruises, the city cramming into his body, flowing through his veins.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Time has no meaning when entrenched in the heart of a district. Everything and nothing, all at once, and the true understanding of it is still a step out of reach, even to a Composer. Words echo back to him, a careful reminder, “Do͓̙͇n̹̭̭͔̩͟’̰̹͖ͅt̲ ̬̰̗͔͙l̢͚͙e̙̠̱̟ț̯͔̤̺ ̺̰y̢̪̱̩̺o͓̬͎̮͓͇̗u͓͔͍̮̝̣̼rs̳͕͙̝̯̺e͈ļ͚̗͚̼f̬̠ ̬̣g͇̲̯͍e̶͕̜̼̤̭t̛̺̰ ̢͎̭̼͙̗̘l̨̥̤͚̞͕o̞̝̱̻s̘̻̮t̺̳̺.͙̦̣̼͔͔”

    Joshua and Neku have been best friends since they were 11, but their friendship starts to fall apart after Joshua goes missing for a week, soon after his 14th birthday. A foggy, static week, with inky memories dripping away from Neku's brain. Lies corrode the bond, and Neku’s vivid nightmares of finding s͡o͘m̧͞҉e͡҉̧ơn͏̛e͞’s̶͟ dead body does not help. A year and a half later, they hit the boiling point. Always look before crossing the road, kiddos.

    In which Joshua becomes a Reaper before becoming Composer, and never loses his Entry Fee.

    Summary

    Josh,” he shudders out, raspy and dry-mouthed, nerves still sparking like the white lightning flying from Joshua’s body, “what in the everloving fuck, was that?”
    What he gets in response is a pearly-white smile and a bone chilling sentence. “I’m not Josh!”

    Summary

    “Could one of you please restrain your new child? I’d like to visit my boyfriend in peace.”
    “This yoctogram is the current excuse of a Conductor,” says Sho, and Neku has to hold back his own laugh. The kid in front of him is a pipsqueak.

    Summary

    His heart is pounding in his chest as his feet pound against the pavement. Adrenaline pulses through his veins as Neku sprints across Shibuya, down to the river, the moon hanging high in the sky above him.

    He keeps his eyes open, staring out without seeing. He can’t close them, can’t return to the darkness that lies behind the lids. As his eyes dry, he knows he needs to, and the urge builds until he blinks.

     

    Joshua, kneeling on the floor of the Room of Reckoning, face an ashy white, the color of life drained away.

    Summary

    “Why, exactly, are we carving pumpkins again?” Neku asks, staring at his big, bright orange pumpkin.
    “Because it’s fun, you’ve never done it before, and you’ve also never had pumpkin seeds. So, I need to teach you the art of pumpkin carving.” Josh grins across the table at him.
