Summary: You took him with you?

Sometimes Shinichi screwed up without actually intending to. When he did, he usually owned up to it fairly quickly and took the scolding without complaint—especially if it was a big mistake, like forgetting an important date. Which did tend to happen, as the man habitually forgot his own birthday. But then he would apologize, and everything would be fine again. Ran didn’t usually get too annoyed when he messed up.

But right now she was livid. She stood facing him with her hands on her hips, her face a mask of anger; she took a deep breath and said in a tight voice, “Okay, Shinichi…explain this to me one more time.”

“Well…I took Conan out for ice cream, like I said I would,” Shinichi began. This was true—Conan had scored the winning goal in his soccer game the previous weekend (he played on a kiddy team), and as a reward his proud father had taken him out for a treat. “And we were on our way home when a police car pulled up.”


“And Megure got out and said they needed me on a murder investigation…”


“And he wouldn’t take no for an answer. So we got in and went with him.”

“…you took our five-year-old SON to a murder scene?” Ran growled.

“I didn’t want to!” he ducked, hoping and praying that she wouldn’t do anything. They were married, and if she did use her karate on him it would constitute abuse. But that didn’t really go for the furniture in the room.

Ran was visibly trying not to lose her temper entirely. “How did the victim die?”

“Err…” Shinichi knew she wasn’t going to like this part, “…was pushed off a balcony.”

“From how high up?”

“Forty stories.”

“Onto concrete?”


That was all the mental image she needed. “You let our son see THAT??” She had the bit in her teeth and was off, giving him the verbal shakedown of his life, including swearing to every god in the heavens that there was no way her son was going to ever become a detective.

And through all of this, little Conan sat on the stairs, cheerfully licking at his chocolate ice cream cone and wondering why Mommy was so upset with Daddy. Solving the mystery and catching the bad guy had been cool!

PS. Another random idea that sort of amused me. If I was a mother, I certainly wouldn’t want my kid going anywhere near a crime scene. It sort of baffles me that the parents of the Shounen Tantei are okay with it. But eh, not my kids. Thanks for reading, all! Much love!

So much love! <3 I'd definately never let my kid near a murder scene... I expected Ran to throw Shinichi off a balcony herself somehow-*shot*


Completely random, but I suddenly thought of this when I read this fic. /o\

Hee! Yeah, I wouldn't let my kid near a murder scene either xD It's canon that Shinichi went with his father to crime scenes--do we think his mother had any say in this? ^^;; Thanks, hon! :D

That was lurvely. And downright smurfy. ^^

Ran seems to be the type who would be protective of her kids, at least much more so than Yukiko. The Kudous let little Shin-chan get away with far too much. And look what it got him. XD

As far as the Shounen Tantei are concerned, I'll bet their parents are workaholics . . . or just easily distracted. "It's so late! I wonder where Mitsuhiko--ooooooh, SHINY!"

YAY SMURFY! :D *glomps on you*

I think a lot of what Shin-chan got away with might have been his father's influence. We see that in the Moon Ghost case, where Yukiko is going to discipline and Yuusaku tells her not to.

Plus, Ran's husband (at the time of this story) ran off and got turned into a child himself. She's probably got overprotective down to an ART FORM as a result of that alone!

*laugh* We don't really see much of the Shounen Tantei parents, so I guess that will remain fanon for now ^_~
M.O.N.A.: Kickass Ran - Cran_mouri82 on November 22nd, 2007 03:54 pm (UTC)
Yet another influence could be how Ran had to raise her father. ^^* No doubt she's the grounding female influence in that household!

Oh yeah, I forgot about that! *adds it to checklist of Reasons Why Ran Will Eventually Rule the World*

♥ ♥ A part of me is saying "I would want my kid to see that? It's natural! It's just a body! He'll get to see how the organs look like" but I'm just being silly. I'd throw a hissy-fit until kingdom come too.

And I agree with ran_mouri82... the parents of the Shounen Tantei don't seem to even know what their kids are doing. In fact, I'm surprised the Shounen Tantei aren't traumatized by it all... yet.

*laugh* Seeing a body is one thing--kids need to be exposed to the concept of death at some point. But having that exposure because of a body that's just gone flying into the concrete from forty stories up? No thank you. Hell, I'm twenty-two and I don't want to see that xP

I wonder if we'll ever get any real canon with the Shounen Tantei's parents...

*GLOMPLES* Thanks, hon! :D

Ouch ^^" That is going to be a long and very loud night for Shinichi! And poor Ran, surrounded by detectives everywhere she goes! Now even in her own Family... tz tz tz~ but we all knew that this would happen, ne? ;) - Cuteish fic hon!

o__ô and i was thinking about the same thing. With the whole Shounen Tantei and stuff.
If they - or betetr ONE of them XD was my kid and i would know they were jumping around crime-scenes...oi!
I guess they're parents just don't know yet *shruggs*

Poor Ran...she suffers so much...but somehow, I suspect she can keep Shinichi well enough in line ^_~ *glomps* Thanks, hon!
