getting this boy to do anything besides studying or staying true to his hobbies, is akin to pulling Excalibur from the stone. don't be mistaken however, behind that blank, dismal stare lies a truly tortured soul. anyone who attempts to become friends with hiro, should expect very little at first as this introvert will not be forced to do things he does not wish to do. and it's unwise and ill advised to get on his bad side - this boy tends to hold a bit of a grudge.
his quirks include:
• keeps a file on everyone • almost constantly in parade stance • speaks to himself in japanese • constantly adjusting his glasses • is constantly cold to the touch (probably anemic) • obsessive with his work to the point he forgets to eat • enjoys gardening • smokes cigarettes • a piano prodigy
becoming friends with hiro isn't a feat easily achieved, but it is possible. you're more likely to make leeway if you're soft spoken and ask concise, intelligent questions and take his tutoring seriously. in general, hiro is just a quiet boy of few words and if you understand this, you're more likely to be appreciated albeit silently. there are subtle ways to know that hiro cares for you which show mostly in his concern for your well-being or how well you're doing with your school work. hiro genuinely isn't used to others caring about him, so gently reminding him to eat or stay hydrated would be quietly appreciated.
i mean honestly, just yes. as much as this poor boy has been through hell in a hand basket, i want him to suffer even more. there are a plethora of ways to immediately make hiro hate you without malice aforethought. bullying him or someone he cares for is one surefire way to ensure that you're on his shit list forever along with berating him with pointless anything and just generally being a nuisance. it's not hard for hiro to hate you, figure new ways to piss him off out.~
just.. yes, this child needs to be loved more than i could ever really truly explain to someone. as with becoming his friend, a lover would need to act in the same manner - though this isn't to say that they shouldn't challenge this annoying butt if he's obviously incorrect or incorrigible about something. a lover for hiro would be a slow and painful process as he's still a very prudish virgin boy. but should someone get beneath that exterior, hiro is an awkward, tsundere, blushing mess of denial and the need to do something to prove that he cares about them - which is honestly very difficult for him. it's a trip to watch, so definitely throw some ideas at me.
