|A Loser's Just a Learner on His Way to Better Things||[Mar. 4th, 2016|01:08 pm]|
"Genma was tired enough that he considered saying no, but home-cooked sukiyaki was impossible to turn down." -- that is a rough place to be at, but I think I'm still going to settle for disgruntled jealously because I want home-cooked sukiyaki.|
Actually, all the food in this chapter sounds so good and was making me so hungry. I wasn't sure if I was going to make it through because I'm reading this before I go into work and before I've had breakfast and I just want to eat all the things.
AND WE GOT ALL THE KATSUKO+KAKASHI FEELS IN THE OTHER THREAD AND NOW WE ARE FILLED WITH GENMA+RYOUMA FEELS :D
Their student/teacher dynamic is just so different and I love it. To some degree it was always going to be since Katsuko is more like a peer and Genma is their lieutenant. But-- Just--
"Overwhelming. Frightening. Awe-inspiring. Knowledge, laid out in his lap, given freely just for the asking.
He looked up. "Thank you. I dunno how I'd ever pay you back for this, but I'll try."
;____; Ryouma. Bby. And just-- SO MANY FEELS ;___; Ryouma has such a different perspective towards learning than Kakashi and I'm just so excited to see that explored. Ugh. I adore Ryouma. And Genma. And Genma being so careful around this delicate subject that lies so close to Ryouma's fault lines.
Also, sending Raidou a note about Hisa :D "And if Kuroda had a problem with it, that was a disciplinary action Genma was willing to face." Fuck yeah. Man. Fucking hell. And then there's: "Except… Seriously, don’t toy with Kuroda. He’s got a lot of ego tied up in being in command." ...which is worrying in more than one ways since they have to work with him... and Genma is actually voicing his worry. D:
Also, I just adore how Genma cares for his team and I adore Ryouma and his barrel full of issues: "It sounded mostly wry, but there was a hint, as there always was with Ryouma, of genuine belief in his inferiority. That was another thing Genma needed to figure out how to deal with, and he didn’t think the key was in any of his scrolls." I just-- SKDFSDKLDSF. YES. Oh mY GOD, YES. I just want to give Ryouma a hug and I am just loving so much how everyone on this team actually takes care of each other and I'm just rolling around in a puddle of feels between this thread and the last one and you guys are going to kill me with this.
Plus, it's just so nice to see the way you guys are handling Ryouma sever dyslexia. I just-- I feel it so hard even though I didn't have nearly a hard of time of it as Ryouma does, I still dealt with a much milder form of dyslexia. And it-- I'm having trouble expressing exactly how well this works for me. It's in the, even when Kakashi's being an ass and really too blunt about his questions, no one on the team thinks less of Ryouma because of it and... I donno. It works really well and it is an issue but it's one they can deal with. It's lovely. (Computers and spellcheck are amazing - I would not do half as well as I do without them)
Also: "And he definitely needed to sign up for that counseling class. Honestly, he was getting the feeling it ought to be mandatory for officers." THIS WOULD 100% BE SO USEFUL. OH MY GOD. I am not entirely sure if their team just got it super bad, but ALL Anbu teams are going to be made up of people with at least some amount of issues so. YES. PLEASE BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD GENMA.
OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD.
“Ask for stories? Or buy your dad a drink?”
“Either. Both. I mean neither.” Genma buried his face in his hands — if he could feel the flush, Ryouma could undoubtedly see it. “Gods and saints, if he didn’t already think we were dating… Which don’t worry, I’ll set that record straight at dinner.”
"I'm not worried," Ryouma said. He was beginning to enjoy himself. "I got dorayaki out of it." And nobody's parents had ever thought him fit dating material, before. Not that he'd ever met anyone's parents, or wanted to, but—
THEY ARE TOO CUTE. THIS IS ADORABLE. ALERT. ALERT. EMOTIONAL MELTDOWN. AND YUUICHI IS SO ADORABLE. I LOVE HIM WHENEVER HE TURNS UP. OH MY GOD. (//∇//)
Wonderful thread and just-- No words :D
