    thanks to @chispers for my new ocs <3 introducing: My Brother is Haunted

    Hideki (15) - excellence, superior

    hideki had always wanted a younger sibling and when he turned eight, his parents granted his deepest wish. now that he's older, his biggest wish is to be the best big brother ever. however, these so called hunters and exorcists keep showing up out of nowhere to attack his brother! with both of his oblivious parents working out of country, its up to this big brother to keep his sibling safe!

    - cross accessories? the "t" is for touma.

    - bro-con, always doting on touma

    - his life is touma

    touma (7) - light, protect

    touma was born with two small red horns on his head. up until he got into pre-k he thought it wasnt a big deal as he grew up surrounded by love. he realized that he wasn't normal when he was able to do things that his fellow peers could not. one day as touma was making his way home a man appeared and scared touma! luckily his big brother was there and took touma away from the scary man and they made it home safely. however, these scary men keep showing up! touma feels bad that his brother always has to protect him but he always feels safe when his big brother hideki is there!

    - he loves his big bro!

    - his favorite animal is frog

    - his favorite color is green and yellow

    Met an old teacher today and we got talking about ‘the good old times’ and ten minutes into the conversation I jokingly said the one regret I have from middle school is that I never won anything at her magnificent tombolas? Because, like, she used to hold this game about once a month so we’d learn the numbers in French and it was never big prizes, but as a 12-yo I desperately craved them - a cactus-shaped eraser, a bright blue notebook with slightly larger-than-usual squares, a set of coloured pens - and never ever got a single one of them. 

    (Actually spent a good few months thinking I was genetically unlucky and researching ancient family curses with my grandma.) 

    So today I don’t know what I was hoping for - nothing, really?

    (I mean, that part of me that’s still twelve was probably expecting this sweet old woman to have a set of glitter stickers in her purse and just go ‘You know what, you’re right - I’ve been saving this one for you all these years, here you go’ but I’m a solidly rational person and I know that’s stupid.)

    No, I thought we’d just laugh and it would be a good shared memory and that would be it. Instead, my teacher got flustered and a bit embarrassed and explained the game was rigged. It was never about learning French at all. She’d just noticed some kids couldn’t afford even basic stationery, so she’d buy a few half-fancy items every month with her own money just for them. She didn’t want them to feel different or left out. And obviously the way she used to walk around in the classroom, looking over our shoulders - it wasn’t to prevent cheating. It was because she was cheating herself, wanting to see which number a particular child needed to get a Minnie Mouse pencil case.

    Guys - the world is fucked up, but so many people out there are just good and kind and humbly heroic it honestly gives me hope. 

    It’ll be alright, you’ll see.
