Sketches by Crayons...
and Marriage is the New Going Steady
Kyo x Ryou & Yuchi x Beer
long drabble

Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy— that was the story of their life. So it was no surprise when things were unusually hard for them. They were two hopelessly fucked up people living in the spotlight with the world betting against them. The odds would never be in their favor, but they were still trying their best to defy them.

Which was, apparently, why they were not speaking to each other right now.

“This isn’t going to work out,” Ryou said, shifting a beer in his hands that he wasn’t even drinking.

“What do you mean?” Yuchi slurred, already on his third or fourth beer.

It was fitting that Yuchi would pick a bar as his place of choice for consoling love troubled friends. Hell, drinking was what most people resorted to to fix their problems. It had just never worked out very well for Ryou personally.

But Kei wasn’t around to listen to Ryou whine at the moment, and Ryou really needed someone to whine to. He was taking what he could get today.

“It’s not going to work out,” Ryou said again, this time slower so tipsy Yuchi would understand him. “Me and Tooru. It just... not working.”

“Right,” Yuchi scoffed like he knew all about it. “Of course it’s not. There’s no way in hell you and him will ever work out. Which is exactly why you two will work out.”

There was a moments pause where Yuchi prided himself for his wisdom and Ryou mentally slammed his face right down into the bar.

“I think you’ve had too much to drink.” Ryou sighed.

“I’m serious!” Yuchi insisted, drunk as he was. “You two have defied all kinds of logic in the past and I don’t see any reason why you guys would stop defying it now.”

“So we’re illogical,” Ryou said, nodding like it mattered.

“Exactly!” Yuchi exclaimed, slamming his beer down on the bar and attracting some unwanted attention. “That’s exactly what I’m saying! You’re both so fucking illogical that you’re perfect for each other.”

“Sounds more like we’re doomed.” Ryou said bitterly.

“Maybe so,” Yuchi agreed. “But! It will work out in the end, so it won’t matter.”

“That doesn’t even make sense.”

“That’s because you’re thinking logically,” Yuchi chided him. “You can’t do that!”

“Right.” Ryou said, not convinced.

“Trust me,” Yuchi said, clapping Ryou on the back and knocking the wind right out of him. “I’ve been trying to make sense of you two for years now. And I’ve found out it’s just not possible.”

“Wonderful,” Ryou rolled his eyes and shrugged away from Yuchi’s touchy-feely-ness. He knew it had been a bad idea to come here.

“It’s all in your favor, Ryou.” Yuchi went on. “You two have been together... what? Six years now? Do you know how rare that is for people like us?”

“Define ‘people like us’” Ryou said.

“Rockstars of course! How often do you hear about one of us getting married?” Yuchi asked.

“Because were all gay?” Ryou asked sarcastically. He had no idea where Yuchi was trying to go with this, and he wasn’t sure he wanted to.

“Now, now.” Yuchi declared without a whole lot of conviction. “I’m not gay. You’re not getting what I’m trying to say here.”

“Clearly,” Ryou mumbled.

“All I’m saying is that you two have already fought about all the serious stuff. Now you’re just looking for pointless stuff to fight over. As long as you two keep finding things to fight over, it’s all good.”

“You’re really not making me feel any better.” Ryou groaned.

“Look,” Yuchi said. “Just tell him you changed your mind.”

“But I haven’t—“

“Just tell him!” Yuchi growled. “Just tell him you liked his damn head shaved, and all will be well.”

“You want me to lie to him?” Ryou asked.

“Yes! That’s exactly what I want you to do!”

“He’s going to know that I’m lying.”

“And you two will fight over it and all will be well! Because that’s what works for you guys!” Yuchi cried for the love of God. “Hey, you wanna know what I think?”

“No, I really don’t” Ryou said.

“I think you two should get married.” Yuchi said, deadpan serious.

“Okay, I’m leaving now.” Ryou said, passing Yuchi his unopened beer and getting to his feet. “Have fun with your happy hour.”

“I hear it’s the new going steady!” Yuchi called after him. “Enjoy your life together!”


Notes: The result of my own trainwreck of thoughts regarding this pairing. Instead of writing the Chapter Seven to Sketches, this came out instead. u.u; I need to work on my humor.
