    Summary

    After the infamous coffee shop raid in the 20th Ward, Hide's father sends him somewhere he can learn more about the CCG and hone his skills as an investigator without too many questions, or too many unpleasant reminders. And maybe his father is also hoping that a change of scenery will help Hide move on.

    But moving on isn't that simple, not when Hide made a promise to never leave his friend alone.

    Summary

    In a world where Haise never remembers Kaneki, and Hide emerges from the shadows of the CCG information division, Haise and Hide are undeniably drawn together – Hide because he knows who Haise is, and Haise for some undefinable reason that he can’t put a finger on.

    -

    “Listen to me, Haise. Don’t look for me. You’ll know what I did when it happens, when it shows up on the news. You’ll know. It’s done and it can’t be undone. Don’t look for me, just do your job and let it all blow over okay? Train the kids. Take care of them, double for me. And no matter what dreams come up, no matter what you start to remember or don’t of your past, stay strong. When—if it’s safe again, I’ll find you. I promise; I’ll find you.”

    “But, Hide—“

    “Haise, do you trust me?”

    Haise looks into his eyes, swallows, and says, “With my life.”

    “Then trust me now. I will find you.”

    Summary

    Kaneki knows there isn't going to be a happy ending. After all he's been through, Kaneki doesn't believe in happy endings, but he's content at the moment. He may not be the same, but there's a part of him that is happy about that. He's not weak anymore and he has a group of people who are loyal to him. He has, more-or-less, a make-shift family of ghouls brought together by chaos and pain.

    But where did Hide fit into that?

    Kaneki hadn't seen Hide in months, staying away to protect him. But what really was he protecting Hide from? Whatever it was, Kaneki knew he failed when he saw his best friend's Missing Persons poster plastered somewhere in the 20th ward. It's been 5 months since then, and Hide was nowhere to be found. Kaneki didn't want to give up, but the odds of Hide being missing for this long, in a ward full of dangerous ghouls, didn't give much hope. He started to think Hide would never turn up.

    Until he did.

    And with him, came a surprise that Kaneki wasn't the slightest bit ready for. "

    Summary

    Hide had known that joining the CCG to get closer to Kaneki came at the cost of huge risks, but he hadn't expected this. He'd expected the harshness of a misguided organization trying to protect the people it was responsible for. He had had not expected cruelty.

    He had not expected Kanou.

    AU where Hide is turned into a ghoul sometime after the 11th ward arc.
