Kanda has never been one to seek out the notice of others, preferring to keep to himself and keep everyone at a safe distance. With a few exceptions, like the dumb rabbit or the beansprout, for the most part it's never been that difficult to do. What he had never counted on though was what the revelation of his past might do to make keeping others, namely an overly persistent finder, at arms length more difficult and all the extra trouble it would cause him.
As I was writing my Tomorrow series I had a number of ideas for additional smaller stories and 'bonus stories', that for various reasons I decided not to include as a part of the main story-line, though I still wanted to write and post them and have decided to do so here.
Stories under this title will predominately come from before, during, or after the Tomorrow series, with each chapter containing a different story.
In order to keep the stories in chronological order chapters may at times rearrange, when this occurs the most recently added chapter will be indicated in the tags.

Playing online video games is one way to spend free time and sometimes even to make friends. But ending up trapped in one is not usually part of the plan...
It doesn't take long for anyone to find out that Ginoza likes dogs. In fact his feelings toward creatures of the canine variety are likely stronger (and more affectionate) than those he holds for any of his colleagues or subordinates. ...Much to their occasional inconvenience.
Four times that Ginoza's love of dogs caused trouble for somebody else, and one time that it (kind of) saved the day.
Some days he feels as if he were drowning, on most nights Ginoza finds himself unable to sleep. As much as he had missed having Kogami around while the other man was confined, sometimes Ginoza wondered if his hue would be clearer if he were able to care less about his friend now that Kogami was a latent criminal.
At the very least Ginoza imagined he would be able to get more rest, and that without having to take something in order to do so. If nothing else perhaps there would be less paperwork to finish.
