Not a prompt, but a question to pick your brain. If the Batfam kids ended up undercover (as themselves in civilian guise) at Ouran Academy, who do you think would discover the Host Club first? Also, who would end up the first reluctant member?
My first instinct would be to say Dick or Steph, but Steph would immediately be out since the premise of the show is that this is an all-male club and the main character has to pretend to be a boy to remain there.
Then I read the word ‘reluctant’ and I instantly knew it would either be Damian or Tim himself, considering the types this club sports either the Shy-Guy-Moe and the Littlest-Tsundere-Shota would work perfectly without usurping a place another character ocupies in the club already.
Though I think Dami would be far more reluctant than Tim and Dick would be too old to be a student (he most likely would be a teacher, if they had to go undercover) and most likely the girls at the club would make a narrative out of the new arrivals, sort of like: “Little Damian is so tsuntsun, I bet he is his big-bro’s knight and protector!” (Damian screaming in the background: I AM NOT!) and they’ve seen shy-megane-tim talking to that delinquent who smokes in the backyard and maybe it’s an abussive relationship.
Or maybe Shy-Megane-Tim is the Princess to Prince-Cass-sama, because they are so moe and poor Stephy-chan right?
….. don’t listen to me, I am a definite bad influence for this. :’D
I’ve missed you so much, dearest.
I’ve missed you a ton too!
And we’re both bad influences on each other. I like your ideas.
First off… Oh dear lord… Just imagine Dick as a new gymnastics/phys ed coach at Ouran… And Steph as either his assistant, since technically she is old enough to be a freshman in college and not in high school. Or maybe it’d be just easier story-wise if she stayed in the US at first, and then came to visit after everyone else was settled in Japan.
Technically, as students, I think the only ones in the right age group are Tim, Cass, and Damian? Though I can see Jason lurking in the background of the campus, sneaking in and giving security fits to visit his siblings, while looking every part the dangerous delinquent rebel.
Lightbulb! Of the Batfam kids at Ouran, Cass is the only one who can tell the difference between the Hitachiin twins pretty much immediately. She automatically zeroes in on the twins’ differences (tones of voice, subtle body language, personality shifts). To her, Hikaru and Kaoru are as different as night and day.
Cass would definitely tell them apart. I think she would even be confused as to why it’s such a thing, I mean, aren’t they like totally different?
They are not alike at all.
And Tim would hide behind her and mutter under his breath how he hates this persona he has to play while she would totally go along with it and be his Prince because it’s interesting how the people around them react (and the jealous stares they get, definitely).
Dick also goes all out on the pretense, I bet he likes to scold that punk delincuent rebel in the bike that comes every so often to pick the Wayne children up and smokes and the students are so involved in the battle no one notices Dami, Tim or Cass snooping around.
Except Tamaki wants to pinch Dami’s cheeks because he takes his agressive personality as a personal afront and that’s definitely not something one should do, so the family split their time making sure Damian doesn’t kill anyone and doing whatever research they need.
Oh, and on a side note.
I think Tim trolls the fuck out of people, like he pretended to be winded and weakened the first time the twins tried to prank/push/glomp him and he went all flushed and told them how he took a bullet to the stomach just afew months ago (it’s in the news, ya know? There’s even a youtube video!) and how he is not to be upset too much and how sorry he is he can’t play with the twins no matter how much he would like to.
And he laughs evily inside when the twins feel like crap.
Because if Tim’s going to have to play the weak shy-boy-megane-whatever-moe, he’s gonna have some fun as well.
Oh dear lord… The first time the twins prank/push/glomp him!
You know Tim will play up his “injury”, and then THAT will be the moment that Prince Cass enters the scene, full of quiet, but controlled righteous fury that someone might’ve caused pain to her beloved (but far frailer) adopted brother.
The murderous aura Cass can emit when one of her beloved brothers is being hurt or harassed is comparable to Kyoya’s when someone wakes him up too early.
Speaking of Kyoya… While he is definitely knowledgeable about Bruce Wayne, Wayne Enterprises, and is mindful of the potential benefits from befriending one or more of the Wayne heirs, something about them as a whole makes him feel suspicious. He gets a sense that there’s more to them than meets the eye, but he can’t figure out exactly what yet… At least not through logic.
Tamaki gets that sense too, but his response isn’t so much suspicion, but the same drive to befriend them as when he was gathering the Host Club together, because he intuitively feels that they’re all hiding a great deal of pain and/or frustrations in their own lives.
I think one of the most amusing interactions comes with the Batfam dealing with Honey-sempai. Honey throws them all for a loop, and shocks the crap out of the lot of them when his true strength is revealed.
