Notes: Me and Zan wrote a fic together, yay! I wrote the first half and she wrote the second half! Um... there's nothing really to babble about, so I just hope that everyone likes it! Enjoy~


Nino liked Ohno's smile. It was something Nino liked catching, liked causing. It was something pure-- an unfocused flash of emotion, only there for a moment before it melted into his normal dazed expression. It was something that made Nino always smile back.

Nino liked how Ohno held him. Ohno would bump up against Sho when he looked worried, and let him talk until he had exhausted his vocabulary. Ohno would pull Jun into his lap, and work his fingers through Jun's hair until he relaxed and a dopey smile appeared on his face. During concerts, when Aiba seemed like he might burst from the energy, Ohno would hug him and keep him from breaking apart. But when Ohno held Nino, it was simple-- a hand against his waist or their arms linked together, and maybe it was simpler, but Nino liked it best.

Nino liked Ohno's hands. They were nicer than his own, not callused from video games and playing the guitar. He liked all the colours of paint under Ohno's nails. He liked how their hands fit together perfectly, comfortably, and he liked knowing that if he squeezed Ohno's hand then Ohno would squeeze back.

Nino liked sleeping with Ohno. It hadn't happened as much lately; they were too old, or maybe the opportunity just didn't appear any more, but Nino could still remember when it did. He remembers being suffocatingly close, and how their hearts felt beating so close to one another, but what he remembers the most is how normal it felt.

Nino liked Ohno's voice. It was a voice that didn't get muddled up by too many thoughts, like Sho's and Jun's. Sometimes he said things that didn't make sense, but Nino liked that too, because he knew it just meant Ohno had started talking before he figured out quite what he wanted to say. Sometimes he felt that those times, in the jumbled mess of words that weren't quite what Ohno was hoping for, said more about Ohno than anything else, if only he could figure out what.

Nino liked a lot about Ohno. He liked how Ohno danced, and how cute he was when he blushed, and how he scrunched up his nose when he didn't get his way. Nino liked how he acted the same around everyone, no matter who it was, and how he thought everything was delicious. What he liked best, though, was that when you put the things he liked all together, along with a few things he didn't, it made someone who'd smile back and squeeze his hand and just be Ohno.


Ohno’s thoughts were always fleeting, and not always on the moment. If he managed to pin down a random one that made him smile, Ohno did. Ohno loved how Nino sometimes caught this randomness and would smile too. It was like a secret they shared and one of those games Nino played. Ohno loved the idea that Nino might be keeping score.

Ohno loved doing things with his hands, his art and sculpting for instance. It was the touch, the feel of something tangible to get lost in and finding joy in that touch. He felt he had to reassure Sho sometimes and a touch there meant “Hey, slow down. Don’t worry, we’ll be okay.” When it was break time and Jun was still stiff, aloof and having trouble reconciling his brain with ‘the cameras are not rolling anymore’ Ohno used his hands to muss up the perfection. Jun would complain of course but he would smile and be half-hearted about it. During concerts when everyone was just about flagging, Aiba would find his second wind and he bounced and careered madly about onstage. When enough of this energy had diffused through to carry them all, until the end, just round the corner. It was the leader’s job to defuse Aiba.

Ohno loved doing things with his hands. They were simple things that found joy in pulling Nino in close at the waist, so he could whisper something mundane. How he felt reassurance from just squeezing Nino’s shoulder or sometimes it was just a quick brush of hands and fingers that said ‘Hello’. He loved the feel of Nino’s hands in his. Ohno loved the feel of the soft ridges of those bumpy knuckles, the rough of the whorls and swirls of thumbs and fingers. Ohno found flexibility and dexterity in the curve and flex of Nino’s had stretching more than an octave on the piano fascinating, and would love to capture it in motion and still it, except he knew he could never do those hands justice. Simply put Ohno loved how Nino’s hands fit in his.

Simply put Ohno loved how Nino fit around him. Perhaps it was how he fit around Nino? He loved how it was comfortable and not awkward, how it warmed his heart and soothed him to have Nino so close. Ohno was never sure if these are exactly the words he would say about what he loved or what he liked about Nino. He did not have Nino’s way of putting words so eloquently to music and into a song. He loved that about Nino too. Nino did not get words mixed up when speaking. Nino was always clear, even when he was silent, Ohno liked that the Nino-silence spoke volumes.

The sum of the parts made up the whole. To Ohno it was a special kind of whole and a special kind of sense, to have Nino be there to catch his random smiles and to return a simple touch with a simple squeeze of his hand.

I love your Nino-POV. Beautiful words. *hugs locky tight*

And you write Ohno perfectly! <3
