25+ years-old Nezumi/Shion
« on: March 15, 2015, 10:09:17 pm »
*having a nosebleed* well I think the title is kinda self-explanatory but, we just talk so much about 12, 16, and 20 years-old Nezumi/Shion, I want to talk about them when they're more into their adulthood ^^ Also, 5 years after the reunion, anyone?

(I just realized I probably put this in the wrong thread and I have absolutely no idea how to change it or even if I can change it so...)

I have terribly depressing headcanons I could write here... But maybe I shouldn't. That would be an unfortunate thing to find while catching up on posts.

you say that and now I'm really curious LOL


I've always, always wanted to draw them older. Most fanart is based on the times when they're 16 and in West Block, but I want to imagine them together in the future, growing old and still loving each other as much as they did in the past. ;__;

SO if they reunited at around 20, and now they're 25...
I would imagine Shion's either still working in the Restructural Committee or he's quit and started working as a teacher. (CAN YOU IMAGINE SHION WITH KINDERGARTENERS) and Shion would probably be godfather to Shionn and watch him grow up? ;__; and Shionn has his first love and Shion is just like "WHO IS IT (✿ʘ‿ʘ)" and maybe Lili develops a crush on Shion and Nezumi has to fight off a love rival half his age. how old is Lili anyway

and Nezumi... might be working at the theater? I get the feeling he can do anything really. but also that he has PTSD


also, where did you guys discuss about Nezumi + Shion being 20? :d I would like to read and catch up on all the years I've been ignorant and not loving the dynamics between these two.

@Meopat: hm, I'm not sure if we ever explicitly discussed the two as 20y-olds here, but a lot of people seem to assume that they reunite at around age 20 (because it'd leave 4 years between their meeting again and we know from the novels Nezumi isn't back after 2-3 years). So basically any reunion discussion would revolve around them being around 20? If that's what you meant?

@Weisel: now you've made me curious too though XD Do you think they'd grow apart or that Nezumi would just never return, or do you have way worse things in store and are we going to regret asking?


@AoYokai, thanks for starting this thread! You're right, people usually focus on the canon events and straight after reunion. It's fun to explore the time after that.


By Jove though, I hope Shion will have quit the committee by then, at least the full time part of it. I just don't think it's really his thing and he might possibly collapse from stress after almost a decade... He could still be involved, just not full time. I don't think he could ever fully let it go, if only because of his promises to those who are gone, but if he saw the city was in the right hands, it'd help him relax I bet. And yeah, Karan did mention a couple of times how he'd like to work with kids, so I can definitely see that.

Nezumi - hm, tough one. He could do a lot of things, but what would he want is another question. Then again, I do feel that acting is something he loves doing, considering how disappointed he seems by the not quite amazing West Block settings and how he has Shakespeare memorized. (And pretty much every single reunion fic I've read that goes beyond the actual reunion has Shion build him a theater, so I might have gotten influenced there, haha.)
I do always wonder, though. They're 16 in canon, tastes can change...

Which also relates to whether they'd be together or not after being apart again, but the optimist in me (gasp there is one! Apparently!) likes to think they'll have a lot of conversations, A LOT, where they figure out how they both felt at the time, how they both needed that time apart, and how they can start getting to know each other again under normal circumstances and fall back into sync. But there will still be times even long after reunion when it becomes very obvious that they're different, and they need to work with that. I for one don't think either of them is ever going to get rid of the nightmares completely, but at least they know what the other is going through, or at least better than anyone else does. But this is dangerous territory and I don't feel remotely adequate to talk about trauma or PTSD or related topics, so I'm just gonna... not...


Ahh fun things! I wonder what Inukashi would end up doing? Still run the hotel or branch out? In a more recovered No. 6 where there's less need for the dog hotel, maybe a dog café or something else wild like that, idk. Dogs are involved at any rate XD And little Shion seemed to be growing up nicely, so he can help. I do really think he likes his big namesake a lot, even if he can't see him all that often (since Inukashi's letter suggests that Shion doesn't have time to come over all that much some years after the events). And he'd grow up with lots of different wisdom around him at least, in between all the main characters. I wonder how Nezumi would like the kid - I mean, he is being raised by Inukashi, haha.


I am super fond of the idea that Lili ends up helping out Karan in the bakery a lot. I have no idea how old she's supposed to be either... 7-8ish in canon, maybe? That would make her old enough to work there in the weekends or something when Shion is 25. That'd be nice. And maybe Renka and Lili's little sister can help, too. I'm not sure if it was mentioned what Renka was doing in the first place (since she lives in Lost Town, I'm gonna assume she had to make her own money for a while before she ended up together with Getsuyaku), but I like her being friends with Karan.
(And maybe said little sister can run after little Shion while Lili perhaps-not-so-silently crushes on the bigger one XD ahem.)

@Weisel I wouldn't be in the no. 6 fandom for so long if I didn't have a masochistic thing for super depressing headcanons ^^

@Meopat (yes draw them I actually started this thread because I saw a fanart where Nezumi seemed older and realized how ****ing hot he was) I LOVE THE IDEA OF SHION TEACHING it's so cute :D Also, Lili does have a crush on Shion. She said so in the novels, that she planned to marry him ^^ 

@listenforthelove I can't see Shion letting go of the RC either... maybe when he becomes way older?
My headcanon for Nezumi is that Shion puts him in charge of the new library of no. 6, where he needs to copy books into the data base so people can read them rather than take thefrom the library (books would be way too rare) and occasionally go to other cities to make deal to get new books for the library. Luckily, he would use an airplane this time ^^ Also, in attempt the preserve the art, Nezumi would write analysis for some of the books, and maybe even teach literature.

I imagine Inukashi would also be helping with the bakery, but also, now that no. 6 is open for everybody, her hotel would be the best place to stay in ^^ That would probably keep her busy...

Well, my headcanon I immediately thought of is about their deaths... Assuming Nezumi came back (he made a PROMISE, OKAY) and they stay together, one wouldn't last long without the other. I think Shion would die first, considering he's gone through some hell and doesn't know how to take care of himself. In that time alone, Nezumi would struggle to accept that Shion was gone and probably hate himself for not coming back sooner so he could have a few more precious years with Shion (even though he KNOWS he needed that time away). He'd still sleep on his side of the bed as if he needed to leave room for Shion, and he'd make enough dinner for the both of them. When it finally settles in that Shion was really dead and gone forever, Nezumi decides to sleep on Shion's side of the bed... and he never wakes up.

@Weisel
Awww ;_; That's soo sad.... (I hope they can grow old together... it would be so cute when they are little grandpas and they sit in their garden, enjoying a cup of tea and fresh vegetables... I just want them to be happy. ;_;)

@listenforthelove
Ohhh, I agree a lot with you.
(Tbh a lot of this will appear in my revolution fic... X'D OK I'll spoiler my fanfiction now... Renka is working together with Karan, the girls are helping whenever they can... Lili's little sister is little Shionn's best friend and she's spending a lot of time at Inukashi's, since Inukashi feels a bit guilty because of Getsuyaku's death... Shion will quit his leadership in the Committee, but he'll go to weekly meetings. Nezumi will accompany him, because he accidentally told them that he's the last Mao, so he has to be the representative of them... and mostly because they go and visit Karan afterwards. :D) Shion will have an elementary school... just a little one in a nice old ivy-clad building surrounded by meadows and little woods and a lot of green. Nezumi and SHion will live in the attic of the school building... Most of his students are orphans and he likes to give a lot of his lessons outside. Sometimes, Nezumi comes along when they go hiking together. I imagine them in a very green and cozy environment and a small apartment with lots of books and knick-knacks... with potted flowers and herbs on their window sills... And Inukashi does still own a dog hotel, but the dogs are not there to keep people warm...stressed citizens can rent dogs and go for a walk with them, since everything is very green now.

I'm a bit in a rush for now so I'll reply to the rest later, but @Ahiku can I just say I love your idea for Inukashi's hotel and I'd live there for the rest of my life okay bye. XD

@Ahiku
Wow, that's cute, now knowing how your new fanfic will turn out it's fun to wait to see all this happens.



Communication Breakdown is fanfic I always think as something that happens few years after their reunion, normal life, sometimes fight but love each other like no one in world.
Or in "To the simple Two".

@Weisel I'M CRYING BUT I'M ALSO GLAD I HEARD IT

@Ahiku first thanks for fixing my stupid mistake (it took me exactly a millisecond to realize I was on the wrong thread) and second: wow that is adorable Nezumi and Shion would be like the parents of so many people i bet Nezumi never thought his life would turn out that way ^^

@listenforthelove Ooo I see. Thanks!! I thought it had been previously discussed, haha. I definitely support the headcanon of them reuniting at twenty. (Sob)

@Weisel, omg that is sad. It reminds me of a fic I read where they reunite but Shion was distant from Nezumi because he was in the terminal stages of an incurable cancer.... And everything is painful. This ship needs more fluff. T_T

@Ahiku, I'm excited for the rest of your fic!! I love the idea of Inukashi using dog therapy for people at his hotel. it sounds like such a peaceful life for the cast. orz


Can you imagine Nezumi as a music teacher? Or a drama teacher? XD
And also, Shion's students asking him if he has a girlfriend  HAHAHA
Do you think they'd get married? Or that they'd have a lot of pets? 

Then when they're older, would they travel the world together?

@Meopat

Oh, cancer fic "the point of no return", very, very sad one and when I got to end of it I was mess. Still after I thought about it Nezumi wouldn't give up so easy, they had few years before Shion died, he agreed to help Shion with even helping NO.6 (making serum etc). It's not like they couldn't leave West Block. I bet Nezumi would take Shion to other city to search for help, even if he had to carry him on his backs... He's not person who would let Shion die just like that I think.

Nezumi as teacher, I don't see that image, teachers should be patient and open, maybe Nezumi as teacher of grown ups like collage would work but not to children XD.

Okay now I have time to read and reply, sorry for the wall of text in advance XD;


@AoYokai: oh, library would work too! In my mind Nezumi is a bit possessive over his books, but in a library you have to take good care of the books you take out and bring them back, so that could definitely work, haha.


@Weisel: well that was fun to read XD; I'm with @Ahiku in the hopes they can grow old together, and actually I kind of want to see that, because the majority of literature (not just fanfic) focuses on the young and dashing period, but the two of them as old little grandpas kind-of-bickering and knowing each other through and through and everything is just so sweet and I kind of really want that for them after everything?
But I do agree that Shion would die first actually (only preferably like at least half a century than what I got from your message XD; ahem)... He's had less physical exercise and has had periods where he hasn't been able to take care of himself properly (I really don't doubt him getting overly worked up for the committee job and forgetting meals and staying up entire nights sometimes). Might just make enough difference in the long run. And Nezumi would have to deal with losing Shion for good and no wait why.


@Ahiku: ohhhh spoilers!! -noms them up because I can't wait for the rest of the fic since I love where you're going with it so far- YOU'RE INCLUDING RENKA? I love you wow. Aww, Lili's little sister hanging out with Inukashi is sweet!
And I love the idea of Shion and Nezumi having this little warm and cozy apartment like you described. Shion has probably grown up and now continues to live in a pretty sterile environment, white walls and everything if they continue to use the Moon Drop for the committee work (which I don't doubt they will for a good while, if only because it's conveniently there already and there's enough to rebuild without building an entirely new place just to have meetings and stuff). He seems to really love the underground room, so what you describe sounds perfect.
Still 100% living in Inukashi's new hotel by the way. <<

@kare_reiko: ohhh, Communication Breakdown! I think that was actually the first No. 6 fic I read and I still love it, it's definitely part of my headcanon for the post-series.
I'm noting down 'the point of no return' as 'titles I NEED TO WATCH OUT FOR' though XD; wow. But yeah Nezumi and just letting Shion die? No way. Not after everything he did to keep him alive in canon.


@Meopat: oh gosh everyone being after Shion XD yesss. And unless they bluntly ask, he'd hardly ever notice, even when Nezumi is pointing it out.
Got to say I'm with @kare_reiko on Nezumi as a teacher - Shion is more the teacher type than Nezumi, at any rate. But if he's ever asked to demonstrate, I think he'd be good at that.
As for marriage... I have no idea. I don't really think they need the certificate at that point anymore, but maybe for practicalities. And maybe Shion would like the certainty that Nezumi will stay by his side and has made the promise black on white... on the other hand, having Nezumi come back might be enough of a certainty already. I'm still in doubt.
Travelling the world though, yes!!! Nezumi could take Shion to see the scenery he's been through on his journey, and together they can find new places, and get to know different cultures and everything (Shion's defining characteristic is 'curiosity' after all, he'd love to find out about other people and their customs I'm sure).

I bet they first have their conversation about marriage when Shion's introducing Nezumi to someone and he accidentally calls him his husband and Nezumi's like "...Is there something you want to talk about...?"

@Meopat and @kare-reiko I'm not sure you're talking about the same fic... because I read the fic kare-reiko is talking about (and it was, just like you said, devastating) and I don't think that's what Meopat's talking about? idk. If it's not the same I'd really like to read that one ^^ Maybe you weren't even saying it was the same fic well I'm typing this half asleep anyways so no time for me to doubt everything now.

@listenforthelove that's why he would put them in the data base, so people download the filed and don't touch his precious books ^^

60-70 year-old NezuShi wow that's gotta be great ^^ Nezumi would yell at kids to get off his lawn and Shion would come later yelling at Nezumi to stop yelling ^^ Or them growing so old they can't hear each other properly and have these hilarious conversations like 'would you pass me this towel?' 'what? I don't howl!' idek

BUT THIS IS SO SAD no they'll die together I'm just gonna believe it to have my inner peace TT^TT

I also think Shion would be too busy at first to go travel about with Nezumi, and Nezumi would fear all of the dangers out there (especially the one called 'accidentally running into Shion's dad again) but when Shion gets some time off he manages to convince Nezumi that as long as they take proper transportation to other cities they should be fine ^^

@Weisel wow that is exactly how I want them to get married :D I read this really funny headcanon that Shion planned a way to propose for months and when he finally comes up with something, Nezumi just goes 'hey wanna get married' one day out of nowhere (he's not really sure where it came from, either) and Shion is just furious.
