The first time they fight - really fight - is in fifth year, when Rin feels like they should start looking forward in life, and Haruka does not. Or maybe he does, and just doesn’t want to talk about it.
They’re 12 (Haruka) and 13 (Rin) and they go to a regional tournament on the same bus but on separate teams because their schools are pretty damn close to each other and carpooling is cheaper than renting two vehicles.
Rin’s really impressed with the quiet kid who knows his factorials all the way up to 15 (he only knows his up to 10). He sits behind him and pokes him in the shoulder once in a while to ask him hey what’s thirteen factorial to see if he really has it down, or if he’s just bluffing. After he responds (though rather grumpily and sometimes too quietly for Rin to hear), Rin checks the answers with his scientific, competition-safe calculator and to his simultaneous dismay and delight, it’s always correct.
So it would appear that Haru doesn’t like having his shoulder touched
happens to be
then it’s fine
If any of you ever wonder how many strange-ass rinharu AU’s pass through my head here’s a few that I’ve been thinking about forever
anon who asked if i wrote hotter than hot please tell me how you figured it out i am very curious
Thank you so much!!
I probably will, but it’s a really impulsive kind of series. Sometimes I’ll write two instalments in one week, or one in two months.
We watched the first harry potter movie last night though, so I might write more soon!
EDIT: Also if any of you have suggestions for another hogwarts!AU bit or questions that might prompt one, toss them my way because at the moment all I can think of is sixth year Rin trying to get Haruka to agree to screw on the train…..
