    Summary

    “So that’s it,” Shido said, with a fatherly hand on Ren’s shoulder. “Sign here, on the line, or go to prison for six years.”

    Numbly, Ren took the offered pen. The line wavered in his vision, but somehow he managed to scrawl his name across it.

    The whole encounter took less than ten minutes, and then Shido got up and told him to go home, that he’d call soon.

    Later, Ren wondered if it had all been a dream until his parents told him to pack his bags.

     

    An epic AU featuring Niijima Makoto as the fearless leader, Yoshizawa Kasumi as the reliable BFF, and Sakura Sojiro as the curry and coffee sage. Starring Amamiya Ren and Akechi Goro as partners in crime.

     

    ~Spoilers for P5 Royal and vanilla P5.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I LOVE THIS AUTHOR’S WORKS SOOO MUCH!! the only reason i haven’t gotten around to bookmarking this sooner is because i could never find adequate enough words to describe how magnificent this is!!! and i still can’t, but i’ll try anyways!! SO MANY COOL CONCEPTS IN THIS FIC!! exhibit a: the twist with makoto actually made me audibly go “ohhhh” in understanding because it makes so much sense! of course!! exhibit b: THE ROLE REVERSAL. (that’s all i’m saying.) and i WORSHIP ren and goro’s dynamic here; it’s so wonderfully unhealthy and intimate and everything i could have dreamed of!!! <3 <3 <3

    Summary

    “I understand that you think you’re doing the right thing,” Akira says. “But what makes someone happy isn’t necessarily what’s best for them. Sometimes a person getting what they want will only end up hurting them.”

    Maruki squeezes Akira’s shoulder. “Well,” he says, smiling. “Sometimes it’s okay to get what you want. Sometimes what you want is what you need, too.”

    (This is a horror story.)

    this gave me sooo many emotions aaaahhhhh T_T mostly just felt vaguely nauseous the whole way through—which is a very good sign!! it means that this fic achieved the uncanny "something is mortally wrong" vibe horror stories are meant to strive towards, and i admire it wholeheartedly for its beautiful execution! the progression of grooming... the way you can just see maruki's character develop into what it is... the tragic rationalization akira desperately relies on... STUNNING...!! also: the twist BLEW MY MIND!!! supremely clever!! <3 <3 <3

    Summary

    "He rejected me," Goro said.

    “He did?” Makoto asked in fake surprise. “What’d he say?”

    “I asked him to dinner tonight, and he said he couldn’t make it because it was his cat’s birthday.” Goro looked up, eyes flashing with anger. “Cat’s birthday. He couldn’t even come up with a good excuse!”

    sooo wonderfully silly!! for being crack, everybody is still impeccably in character! i especially love the deadpan attitude of ren here (it's one of my favorite types of characterization for him) (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ

    Summary

    Akechi Goro is alive – one of his biggest regrets is alive and standing in front of him looking like he’s ready for some highbrow sports photo shoot when what he really needs is five years intensive therapy and at least five more steps away from Akira.

    No, no, no – the universe is not allowed to shove this on him so soon after it just flung him three fucking years into the past.

    (Sometimes the only way to save someone is to let them save you first.)
    (Huge canon divergence. Akira's past and future affect him big time.)

    this is such a CLASSIC!! i’ve lost count of how many times i’ve reread this—7? 8? no idea!! with its phenomenal writing, succulent angst, and snappy humor, this is the only new game+ fic that i actually like (and there are like a tonnn out there)! if i recall, this fic’s super duper funny similes were a major influence on my own writing... yep! this is god-tier alrighty!!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    sooo fulfilling! incredibly well-written, adore the concept, love the execution!! the first killugon fic i ever read, and the rarest of its kind... there's a serious lack of possessive!killua in this fandom which is utterly BAFFLING because hello? never had a friend before?? overprotective mother hen tendencies??? literally idolized gon to the point of equating him to pure, virtuous light?!?! this fic is possibly the only thing keeping my thirst for more possessive killugon at bay...

    ★ tropes: unhealthy relationships, dependency, dubious/non consent, obsessive possessive character, major character death
