Silly Drabble

Author: Sinnatious
Words: 486~ Shortest thing I've written in maybe forever.
Rating: Totally PG.

Author’s Note: I made a deal with the Twinnesses to write this.  The terms of the deal were, I quote:  This Twinness would like a fic with that *points at face pic*...reaction shown on Ryoma's face. No other particularities.

This was the picture: 

Luckily, I've often thought that Miharu had Ryoma vibes.  So I chose to rewrite this scene in the anime.  

You know this scene, right?  Of course you do.

I wrote this last night in a semi sleep-deprived state, so it's a bit silly.  :)  


Kevin was shocked to stillness on the other side of the court by Ryoma’s announcement. It was apparently inconceivable to the blonde boy that his chosen rival wasn’t selected as a Junior Invitational member. 
“It shouldn’t matter to you either way so long as we play, right?” Echizen remarked. Tezuka frowned as the freshman ignored his orders and started to serve. The ball hit the net with a dull whack. Both players seemed surprised by the anti-climactic start.
“It’s hard to use someone else’s racquet after all.” The first-year looked over to his bag, and moved to fetch his own racquet. Tezuka’s feet carried him forward. Echizen still didn’t get it. He couldn’t let this match take place.
“Stop it, Echizen,” he ordered. The younger boy paused briefly, but continued withdrawing his racquet, breezing past him without acknowledgement.
The blatant disregard and disobedience annoyed him. Tezuka wasn’t the sort to regularly lose his temper, but he expected better from the first-year. He held the youth to the same high standards he reserved for himself. His hand reached out, catching Echizen’s wrist in a vice-like grip before he could step back onto the court.
The first-year jolted to a halt. Somehow, the senior was expecting him to be stubborn, or try to bargain, or even try to wrench his hand away forcibly, but the delivered reaction was not the one he had been expecting.
Echizen glanced back with an indecently innocent gaze, lips parted in a wordless gasp and eyebrows slanted upwards in a needy sort of expression. His cheeks were flushed a dusty pink, and when he spoke, the words came out in a breathy rush. “Buchou…?”

Tezuka dropped the wrist as though it burned.
Ryoma and Kevin wound up having a rather spectacular tennis match, which Tezuka, Kawamura and Akutsu quietly watched from the sidelines while Dan umpired. The captain remained perfectly still and silent throughout the entire game, not even replying to Kawamura when he asked several questions about the increasingly fancy shots being displayed as the match went on. When both players entered a state of self-actualisation, his only reaction was a slow blink.
Echizen won of course, though the match was a close one. Kevin, after being forced to admit his defeat and apparently becoming a much better person for it, hopped on the first plane back to America to confront his alcoholic father, effectively abandoning his team in the Junior Invitational Tournament.  Their organiser flew into a rage at the news, prompting most of the rest of the team to quit as well.  The whole Tournament wound up being called off. There was talk of ending the annual exchange for good.
At the next morning practice after the whole fiasco unfolded, Kawamura placed a hand on his shoulder comfortingly.  "Don’t worry about it.  I don't think anyone could have resisted."

Tezuka didn't respond.  His grandfather would be so disappointed in him.

Pfft!!! Good one, sin-chan. The anime should really have taken a leaf out of your book. An interesting twist to the anime. Pity that the backhand of doom was taken out if it really had happened that way though.

It's strange that while the junior senbatsu/ US-Japan Games are so PACKED with TezuRyo hints, none of the scenes have appeared in any of the TezuRyo AMVs I've seen. >

I KNOW, what's WITH that? As much as it is my least favourite arc overall, it was rife with all sorts of TezRyo moments to exploit. Ryoma in Tezuka's bedroom IN CANON. COME ON!

Ehe. That was your fav moment too? Tezuka hogging the chair and looking down at Ryoma who was sitting good Japanese boy style on the floor. I wonder what was going on in buchou-chan's head at that moment.

Hee, glad you enjoyed it. :P

I knew it! I'm so glad you saw what a parallel-esque image that was. I was actually of that particular scene when I gave you your prompt. Awesomeness~!

I can just imagine Tezuka doing a confession with his grandfather like how one would with a priest (Catholicism. I'm unsure if they do it like that for other religions.), which you should totally follow up with.

So. What can we bribe you with?

Sorry. I tend to miss words sometimes...

*puts on psychic cap*

Miharu even sorts of resembles Ryoma, though. Tint his hair a bit green and change the colour of eyes... IS MIHARU CHANNELING RYOMA OR IS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND?

Oh hey no, there's no way I could write that scene and make it good. XP I won't take a bribe where I can't deliver!

Since the beginning of the anime, I've had this strong belief [which provided as the dangled bait that lured Twinness into the world of Nabari] that Miharu is a Yukimura and Ryoma spawn. I've yet to be proven wrong. In fact, my theory seems to have supported itself every single time the devil attachments show themselves with the amalgamation of Yuki and Ryoma's smirk.

._____________. Zannen da na. I actually wanted to see how you'd develop Tezuka's granddad.

Oh,Sinn, this is just so great...Totally, agree with Kawamura "Don’t worry about it. I don't think anyone could have resisted." WHAT...did Tezuka pounce and kiss Ryoma breathlessly after the match *grin wickedly* ... Tezuka is lucky that Fuji was not there to see it. *grin evilly*

-did Tezuka pounce and kiss Ryoma breathlessly after the match- You know he wanted to. :| But that would be careless.

((That just about covers everything)

Oh them. 8DDD Ryouma, you knew that'd happen.

also asdfjkl; WHERE DID NINJA GO. ;~~~~;

I'm sorry for being such a demanding brat.
May. 25th, 2008 05:44 am (UTC)
No fear, next chapter of ninja fic is still going up today as scheduled!

But your demanding brat nature is what we like best about?

xD Indeedius Maximus =P

*snickers* Tezuka needs to build up resistance quick, otherwise Ryoma's going to walk all over him in the bedroom. XDD

I think my favourite part is how Taka tries to console Tezuka at the end. So full of crack. Great scene!
