a luxury, I know
I've been to the gym, done my housework, took a shower, ate lunch, and now I'm sadly bored.

Anyone want a drabble or something?

I'm almost beginning to feel embarrassed, and worry about the day when you'll just skip the niceties and phrase your offer as, "Does anyone besides Cal-Reflector want a drabble?"

I'll have an Or Something. Yotsubato, Koiiwai, Valentines Day... yeah.

We really need to find a common fandom.

Tales of the Abyss doesn't count?

It's something you put up with but don't actually like, so no.

He was getting used to seeing Asagi in his kitchen. This time, instead of a water fight that had presumably started while washing dishes, she and Yotsuba were diligently working at the counter. While she stirred white frosting in a bowl, Yotsuba was using a piping bag to squirt little brown spirals onto a sheet. A finished sheet sat off to the side.

Chocolates. Of course. Tomorrow was the fourteenth.

“Whatcha making?” he asked anyway, just to hear the answer.

“Poo chocolates!” his daughter said with as much enthusiasm as ever.

That’s what he got for asking. “Poo chocolates?”

“They’re for Yanda!”

“I told Yotsuba we should make chocolates for her valentine,” Asagi replied as she transferred the icing to a second piping bag. “But I think we got mixed up somewhere.”

“Yanda’s the villaintine! So we’re giving him a box of yucky poo chocolates!”

“Sure, that makes sense,” he said. It really was just chocolate, though, right?

Asagi cupped a hand to her mouth. “I think she’s got a crush,” she said in an obvious too-loud whisper.

“Yep, I’m gonna crush him!” Yotsuba replied, and the adults shared a grin.

Asagi pulled a sheet of traditional heart-shaped candies in front of her and began decorating them with the lacy white icing. “And who are those for?” Koiwai asked with typical nonchalance while wondering if he could snatch one without getting his hand smacked.

“Those are for you!” he daughter replied. “But it’s a secret, so don’t tell, okay?”

“Got it.” He looked to Asagi, expecting another amused grin, but she kept her head down, intensely focused on her task.

Re: Abyss.

That's not true. I like ToA. You successfully converted me. Otherwise I would not have written so much about the fandom, even if I offered/you requested them.

Ah, Yanda and Yotsuba and eating poo. That scene created an internet trope with quite the staying power in the Chinese speaking fandom.
