I remember really liking the outfits that some of the characters in anime wore but I wasn't actually aware that people dressed up as these characters until I came across some videos by Fighting Dreamers Pro and probably some other cosplayers when I was randomly browsing YouTube one day. I then started to look things up online and eventually discovered a convention in my area.

Title: Toy Story
Author: xxotakuchiceexx SouChou
Pairing: TajiVasa (Vasayegh Hikaru x Tajima Shogo)
Genre: Romance ??
A/N: This the first fanfic I've posted here in ages. Recently I've been posting my fics on AO3. But anyway, I have no idea what this even is, haha. The G=AGE fandom is pretty small at the minute so I doubt that there's anyone really interested in reading this but I just really wanted to write a fic about Shogo and Hikaru because they're adorable. For the sake of clarity, they're referred to as Taji and Vasa (the names they use in G=AGE) in this fic.
Taji is kind of...cute.
Vasa realizes this as he gives up pretending to watch Toy Story. He made the mistake of looking over at Taji during the movie and he discovers with a start that he’d much rather be watching him anyway. The two of them are sat around the kotatsu in Taji’s living room and they’re watching his DVD of Toy Story for the upteenth time.
Taji is glued to the screen. His eyes are wide and full of wonder as if this is the first time he’s seen the movie. Despite himself, Vasa can’t help but think the older boy is kind of cute. Only kind of. His reactions and facial expressions are more entertaining to Vasa than any movie. Taji has changed so much since the two of them left Johnny’s but deep down, he’s still the same adorable airhead. Unwillingly, Vasa lets out a chuckle.
Taji tears his eyes away from the screen to look at Vasa.
“What?” he says.
Vasa tries to play it cool. He smirks teasingly.
“Nothing,” he replies. “I was just thinking about how much of an airhead you are.”
Unfazed, Taji returns his gaze to his precious Toy Story. He takes a handful of chips from the bowl that’s currently sitting on the kotatsu and plops them into his mouth. His mouth still full, he asks,
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
Vasa looks down at his arms that are outstretched on the kotatsu as another giggle escapes his lips.
“See, even right now,” he says. “Swallow your food before you talk, idiot.”
Taji swallows and then looks at Vasa again. “You’re acting weird.”
“I’m not,” Vasa says simply, turning to the TV again.
“Yes, you are,” Taji argues, watching Vasa intently for any sign of him faltering. “You keep staring at me and smiling. It’s weird.”
“You’re imagining things,” Vasa murmurs, still avoiding the other boy’s gaze.
Taji goes quiet then and returns his attention to the screen so Vasa thinks he’s dropped it but after a while he speaks again.
“You’ve been acting weird for a while now,” he says matter-of-a-factly. “Like the other day with Fumito. You got all jealous because we bought matching bracelets. You don’t see me getting jealous when you and Roi go out on your dinner dates.”
“I wasn’t jealous,” Vasa mumbles, shuffling uncomfortably on the zabuton. “I just wondered why we never bought anything matching before. And Roi and I going to different restaurants just to see how much food we can shove down our faces in a short amount of time is not what I’d call a dinner date.”
Taji shrugs. “We can buy matching things if you want. It’s not that big a deal.”
“Right,” Vasa nods. “Of course not.”
Taji gives Vasa a look then continues to watch the film, his elbows resting on the kotatsu and his head propped up on his hands.
Vasa knows Taji is right; he is acting weird but he isn’t entirely sure why himself. Nothing has changed between the two of them recently yet Vasa often finds himself wanting to do things he can’t explain when they’re alone together like take Taji’s hand in his own or rest his head on Taji’s chest. Acting lovey-dovey in front of their fans is one thing but Vasa knows that if he tried any of those things while they were alone, Taji would never let him live it down.
For a moment, Vasa is too lost in thought to notice that Taji has moved closer to him. When he realizes it though, it hits him all too suddenly and his breath gets caught in his throat.
“Is everything okay?” Taji questions, his brow creased in worry. “If something’s wrong you can tell me. We are friends afterall.”
“I know,” Vasa says and he means it. Vasa doesn’t doubt that if he did have a problem, Taji would do everything he could to try and help. That was the kind of leader and friend Taji was. “I’m fine.”
“Are you sure?”
Vasa nods and smiles meekly. “Yeah, I’m sure.”
“Good. Now shh, this is the best part,” Taji says, pointing to the TV with a huge grin spread across his face.
Yes, I think Taji is cute, Vasa decides with a smile as he watches the older boy flail excitedly. And that is definitely bad.
A/N 2: Shogo is actually obsessed with Toy Story, I didn't make that up haha. Also, that part about Roi and Vasa going out together and eating loads of food is true as well. As far as I know, Taji and Fumito don't actually have matching bracelets but Fumito does have a watch that Taji gave him as a present back when they were still in Johnny's.
For those of you who don't know, a kotatsu is one of those tables that they have in Japanese family rooms and a zabuton is the name for the cushions you sit on at the kotatsu.
I do currently plan to continue this but meh, it depends on how I feel. Hopefully the other G=AGE members will appear in later chapters.
