This is probably the part you guys are looking forward to the most. Hibari Kyouya, if you look at it from a boring yet logical and realistic perspective – he is pretty much the least person on earth you would want to meet. Violent, ruthless, bad-boy and pretty much a practically new species of Human. But still, everyone loves Hibari.
This is not explored in the story because nobody obviously cares. We just like Hibari because. That’s the reason: because. We just simply do.
The BIG question is:
“So, what does Hibari like about my OC, Kiriyuu?”
These questions may apply to any OC x Canon character fic:
Is she (OC) even worthy of him (canon character)?
Why would (Hibari) get googly eyed over someone like (Kiriyuu)?
Why can’t (Hibari) be left alone?
Why can’t they just be friends?
Why out of all the people (Hibari) could possibly know in this world, would (he) like (Kiriyuu) in the first place?
For my case, I suppose that’s up to you think about it. Personally, I don’t really see what Hibari might see in Kiriyuu, nor do I want to think about it too much because then I’ll start to question myself and the whole reason why I wrote COATH and then it’ll be a vicious cycle. Now that Hibari was established, and a character like Kiriyuu, with her goofiness and carelessness and downright weirdness, she would counterbalance Hibari’s seriousness and his usual irregular reactions with people, they sort of tipped together and balanced on my scales together. Sure, they did clash on several occasions. Hibari also potentially became the one who would have to clean up after Kiriyuu’s messes.
And, I will say, the Hibari featured in COATH is different than KHR Hibari. Let’s just say alternate, or COATH Hibari – because 1) in my story, he is an orphan, and 2) to avoid legal copyright issues or else Amano Akira will sue me. Seriously, I am waiting for secret agents to turn up on my doorstep and take me somewhere secret like towards some MI5 base for interrogation.
Basic COATH Hibari breakdown from Fish and Chips’ POV:
He is not NASTY, he is merely JUSTIFIED WHEN DISPLAYING ACTS OF RANDOM COMPASSION.
He does not PITY, he just THINKS YOU’RE DOWNRIGHT PATHETIC.
He is not ONE-DIMENSIONAL, he is almost identical to a WOODEN PLANK WITH A FACE DRAWN ON IT.
He is not VIOLENT, he is PHYSICALLY RESPONSIVE.
He does not DISCRIMINATE but GENERALISES.
He is not UNCARING, he just knows when to CONVIENENTLY AVOID OTHER RESPONSIBILITES IN DOMESTICATED LIFE.
He does not SMILE, he SMIRKS.
He is not ARROGANT, but AWARE OF HIS GENERIC QUALITIES.
He does not FLIRT, but COMMITS ARTIFICIAL STIMULATION.
PS. If you think Hibari is hormonally conflicted in this story, wait unil you read my other HibariOC fic, Cosmo G: KHR Style
