Author's Notes: I do not own Detective Conan. It all belongs to Gosho Aoyama. I simply borrow the characters, tie them up, and dance them around like life-sized puppets. I do wish they’d stop complaining.
Summary: Aoko’s still not satisfied. Poor Kaito.
Kaito stared blankly at the television screen, like he thought it might blow up or attack him or start doing a Celtic clogging routine—in other words, he was more than a little apprehensive. “You want to play this game?”
“Yup!” Aoko beamed.
“…why Guitar Hero?” he asked, adjusting the controller’s neck strap over his shoulder.
“Because Guitar Hero is fun,” she replied airily. “Now pick your character.”
Still wondering exactly why she was so eager to start faux-rocking out—when video games weren’t usually her thing—he skimmed through the computer-generated stars. He eventually decided on one, simply because her name was far too appropriate. “I’ll be Pandora.”
Aoko chose her character—Johnny Nails. “And now for a guitar…” She scanned through a few before picking one that was vaguely triangle-shaped. But before he could do the same, she reached over and tugged on his controller. “I think I’m going to pick your guitar, Kaito.”
The warning bells were ringing full force right now.
Still, he waited patiently while Aoko scanned through all of the options, trying to figure out exactly what she was doing. But he got his answer when she stopped and hit the button to select a particular instrument for him. “No. Aoko, no way…” he stammered as she shoved the guitar-shaped controller back into his hands.
Apparently, Aoko was still upset with him for being Kaitou Kid and lying to her about it. There was no other explanation—he had done nothing else in recent times. That had to be it. But this…this was cruel.
Kaito didn’t win a single round of Guitar Hero. He was too busy shaking and wondering who in their right mind put a fish guitar in the damn game. Aoko, on the other hand, seemed to be having a great time; she went on and had a one-hundred and ninety-six note streak on “Freebird.”
PS. Y, halo thar mini-series! The story behind this is actually rather personal—my best friend Kat and I are extremely cheap dates. Go out for a bite to eat, sit and gab for three or four hours, and then go to Best Buy and play the Guitar Hero demo for an hour. To us, that is an evening well spent. Well, one time we decided to see what all guitars they had there. I found the Log (which was doubly hilarious, considering I had just watched Naruto Abridged and the log is a running joke in that), and Kat found the Fish. Cue the plunnie.
And yes, Vengeance is a little mini-series running throughout this challenge. There’ll probably be a couple others here and there as I get ideas. But I think this was easily the funniest one I came up with.
Thanks for reading, all! Much love!
