Prior Engagement (30 Friends: Shinichi-Heiji)  
Title: Prior Engagement
Author: Candyland
Fandom: Detective Conan
Friends: Kudo Shinichi/Edogawa Conan and Hattori Heiji
Theme: #25—forgiveness
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: I do not own Detective Conan—all the characters belong to Gosho Aoyama. I just kidnapped them and hid them in my closet to keep them safe from…I dunno, something awful, I’m sure. Don’t worry, I feed them. Sometimes.
Summary: Heiji made a HUGE blunder. And Shinichi is NOT happy.

Kudo was pissed.

Granted, Heiji had screwed up rather royally. But still, this much anger over it didn’t seem fair.

…okay, it did seem fair. But that didn’t mean that he was going to take it quietly. He was incapable of doing anything quietly, after all. He was going to annoy, needle, bother, and beg forgiveness out of the Tokyo detective by any means necessary!

But unlike other times, when Heiji had screwed up, they had bickered and then all had been well, this time Kudo was not forthcoming with the forgiveness. Not even a plea from Neechan could change his mind, which flew in the face of one of Heiji’s core beliefs about his friend and rival detective—he had always thought Kudo to be incapable of refusing her anything.

Neechan made it clear that she understood why Shinichi was so angry, but she’d also been sympathetic and understand about Heiji’s blunder. And she certainly didn’t think it should destroy their friendship.

It was four days after his monumental error that he finally got a chance to confront his friendly rival about the situation. Kudo was, understandably, not pleased. “Go to hell, Hattori,” he said bluntly.

“You can’t stay mad forever!” Heiji said.

“Wanna bet on that?”

“It was an honest mistake,” Heiji countered.

“You never could keep your mouth shut about anything, could you? Remember how many times you called me ‘Kudo’ when I was Conan?” Shinichi spat angrily. “You knew how important this was!”

“Why were you dragging your feet about it?”

“As previously stated, you can go to hell.”

“Kudo, come on—“ Heiji tried to protest again, but Shinichi walked past him and exited the room, leaving Heiji to howl at the closed door. “How was I supposed to know you hadn’t given her the ring yet??”

PS. I’ll let your imaginations fill in the blanks as to how Heiji managed to screw up Shinichi’s proposal to Ran. The hand-puppets are too angry to tell me. So I don’t know. Thanks for reading, all! Much love!

Yay! ♥ it!

I have this strange idea of Shinichi worrying for a whole week, finally picking the perfect ring, planning out a romantic dinner and then losing the chance to pop the question because a) he got nervous or b) someone died and he had to deal with that.

Then Heiji approaches Ran the next morning with a "Hey! So how was the romantic dinner last night? Was Kudo all jittery and nervous when he popped the question to you? But must have been nice though, Future-Mrs. Kudo!" and totally not noticing that there is no giant diamond ring on her finger. Oh tactless Heiji, you dumb-dumb.

Thank you! :D And your mental-canon works perfectly *laugh* I wonder how long it took Heiji to needle Shinichi into forgiving him...or if Ran stepped in and told him to stop moping?

That would make an adorable omake! Shin'ichi's still grumbling about Heiji, and Ran pointedly asks if he's more mad at himself for not managing to propose first. Then Ran could, of course, say it was very special and very much like Shin'ichi, and she'd have it no other way, etc. *blushes at teh f luff*

I could see him spotting the empty ring finger, then asking Ran if she said "no". XD

I like that too! :D See, this is why I left you guys to make up the canon for what exactly happened. You do a better job than me!

"Did you say no..." *giggles* Hehe, i like that idea aswell!
It would be so fitting for Mr.Hattori to ask something like that XD

That's what I'm thinking. And he'd be all disappointed...until Ran went "What??"

I think Shinichi's justified, don't you? ^_~
