Cute minific idea: Ise’s parents find him and Uncle Ren-Ren in one of their unusual napping spots
Looks like Kento’s gonna be able to use his magic carpet again lmao
“Ise? It’s time to go home!” Mei called out. “Ise...?”
She frowned when she saw the empty command room, devoid of any soul, much less her dragon son. “Where is everyone...?” 
She walked down the hallway to the training hall. Sure enough, Mei heard the distinct sounds of swords clashing and the hum of elemental energy even from several feet away. She knocked gently on the door before she entered, poking her head hesitantly. “Guys?”
“Mei, you’re back,” Rintaro said, and Kento and Touma looked up to see her at the door. All three of them smiled fondly at her, putting away their faintly-glowing swords, before going to greet her with a kiss.
She accepted their affections with a laugh and returned the gesture. “I was looking for Ise,” she told them. “Have you seen him?”
“Hmm, last I saw he was with Ren,” Kento replied. “They were just here actually... they were watching us until a little while ago...”
“Ise did look a little tired though, so maybe Ren put him down for a nap...” Touma said thoughtfully. “Those two do like their naps a lot...”
Rintaro and Kento exchanged a look that their other partners didn’t miss. “...What’s with those looks, you two?” Touma asked with a slight frown.
“Ah... well, Ren’s been known to nap in some... strange places.” Rintaro said with a hesitant chuckle. 
Kento looked up at the ceiling, then chuckled. “Speaking of strange places... there they are,” he said, pointing up.
Mei and Touma followed his gaze, their jaws dropping when they saw Ren, sitting in the rafters supporting the vaulted ceiling up, his head leaning against a beam as he napped. Ise was curled up in his lap, also just as soundly asleep. 
Mei sputtered. “What are they doing up there? How are we supposed to get them down?!” she asked in exasperation.
“I’ll go get them,” Kento said, summoning his magic carpet and getting on it. He rode up to where Ren and Ise were, and tapped the ninja gently on his shoulder. “Hey, Ren, time to get up.”
Ren blinked as he woke, yawning as he rubbed his eyes. “Kento-kun...” he groaned. “Five more minutes...” he said, trying to roll over.
“Whoa, Ren, be careful, you’re not in bed!” Kento said, stopping him before he- and Ise- toppled over to the ground. “Let’s get you back down, okay?” 
He first got Ise (who was still asleep the whole time) onto his lap, then heaved Ren into the carpet beside him. He held onto the two of them as he lowered the magic carpet to ground level, where the others were. By the time he got back down, Ise had stirred awake, and Ren was starting to fully wake up as well.
Ise jumped into his Mama’s arms as Kento and Ren got off the carpet, which disappeared with a wave of Kento’s hand. “You really ought to stop napping in the rafters, Ren,” Rintaro chided the younger Rider. “What if you or Ise had fallen off...” he fretted.
“You could crash on the couch at my place, if you don’t want to stay here.” Touma told him.
“I know, I know... it’s just so much more breezy up there...” Ren said petulantly. 
“I’m sorry, but... breezy?” Mei asked. “What does that have to do with you being in the rafters?”
“You mean you didn’t notice?” Ren asked. “We all like being surrounded by our elements. It’s windier up there, so I like it. Why do you think Rintaro hogs the tub so much?”
“Oh. That... actually does explain a few things.” Mei said. “But... what about you, little guy...”
Ise tilted his head, confusion in his golden brown eyes. “Mrrp?” 
“I think he just likes it because Ren is there.” Touma said. “He is his favorite uncle, after all.”
Ise chirped happily.

Cute minific idea: Mei convinces Rintaro to do the “Lion King” thing with Ise
“...I beg your pardon?” Rintaro asked, confused and incredulous. “What do you mean I should do the ‘Lion King’ thing with our son?”
“He means the thing at the start of the movie,” Kento told him. “The one when the baboon lifted the lion cub in front of everyone on the tall rock?”
“Oh. But... what for?” Rintaro questioned, still adorably oblivious. 
“Because it’ll be super cute with you and Ise,” Mei said as if it should be obvious. “And besides, aren’t you the actual Lion King? Wouldn’t that make our son like Simba too?”
“Uh, Mei, I don’t think that’s how it works...” Touma said, face-faulting. 
“I think you mean my King Lion Daisenki form?” Rintaro questioned.
“Yes, yes, whatever.” Mei said dismissively, causing the water swordsman to stutter. “Point is, it’d be super cute if you did that to Ise, wouldn’t you?”
Rintaro blinked at her in bewilderment, then turned to his dragon son who was quietly playing with his plush hedgehog doll. “Well, what do you think about it? Do you want to do want Mama says?”
Ise gave his parents an equally adorable and befuddled look. “Oh, just come with me...” Mei sighed.
Mei grabbed Rintaro’s hand, leading him up the stairs with Ise in her other arm. When they reached the landing on top where the two staircases met, right in front of the doorway leading into the base’s sacred sanctum, she handed Ise of to his Daddy with a flourish. “Well now. Go on.”
“A-Alright then...” Rintaro said, raising Ise over his head. The dragon baby momentarily looked confused, but started giggling as he looked down on his Papa and Tou-chan, waving at them toothily.
“Uh... Mei... isn’t this a bit awkward to do with just us watching...?” Kento asked her, waving back at Ise with an amused smile.
And then, as if on cue, the other three swordsmen arrived, frog-marching Yuri between them, the Swordsman of Light having once again gotten lost in the city in the search for food. Their severe lecturing (Ryo and Tetsuo) and heckling (Ren) died as they stared up at Rintaro holding up Ise over the balcony exactly like in the movie.
“...Rintaro? What are you doing up there?” Ryo asked, looking close to bursting into laughter.
“Uh...” Touma started to say. “This isn’t what it looks like?” he tried to offer in explanation.
“Oh, no, it’s exactly what it looks like,” Ren said mischievously as he took out his phone. A few taps later, an African chant started to come out of the tiny speakers and everyone started chuckling, save for Yuri who tilted his head in confusion.
“...What is going on? I am confused,” said the sword-man as everyone around him started trying (and failing) to sing the English parts.
“Don’t you get it man?” Tetsuo said, shaking his head as the music changed. “It’s the Circle~!” he sang.
“The Circle of Liiiiiiiiife!”

Then: minific of Mei and Mai befriending each other and bonding over their boyfriends which include one who kind of went of the edge and another who is a bit of an idiot/fashion disaster
“Do you get the feeling that this going to end very badly for us?” Kouta asked the other Riders, as he looked over his shoulder towards the two women who were at a separate table, laughing as they talked animatedly with each other.
Micchy, Touma, Rintaro and Kento sighed forlornly as they stared at their appropriately-themed fruit parfaits. They nodded, looking quite resigned to their fates, and Kouta followed suit, slumping into his seat with a groan.
-----------
Meanwhile, with the girls...
“Oh, those boys are being overdramatic again,” sighed Mai, shaking her head. “Honestly, I don’t know what’s going on in those heads of theirs half the time...”
Mei chuckled. “I can see that,” she says, eyeing Kouta’s outfit. “...He does know that he looks like a discount Jesus like that, right?”
“Discount Fruit Jesus, actually, but yes, he’s aware... and he still hasn’t done anything about it,” Mai responded with a soft laugh. She, in turn, eyed the author’s drop-crotch, cropped pants. “And him, did he really think that...?”
“I’ve tried getting rid of it, believe me. Unlike Kento, he wouldn’t let me set his horrible clothes on fire.” Mai sighed. “And Rintaro... honestly, it’s a shame he hides himself under all those layers,” she said.
“Kento...” Mai breathed. “He was the one that...” she trailed off. Mai’s breath caught in her throat. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to change the subject so abruptly, it’s just I kept hearing about it from Kouta...”
“Y-Yeah. He wasn’t... with us for a while.” Mai said shakily. 
Mai sighed. “It was the same with us, for Micchy,” she said sadly. “He... did some pretty terrible things. It took him a long time to understand that we forgave him for it a long time ago.”
“Same for Kento...” Mei nodded quietly. “He’s so stubborn... insisting that things had to be done his way... what an idiot.” she sighed wistfully, torn between affection and annoyance. 
“And then there was that awful coat of his... why he decided it was a good idea to be seen wearing that...”
Mai winced. “Yeah... I heard about that too. Is it really as terrible as they all say it is?”
Mei nodded solemnly. “But at least he let me get rid of it,” she said with a grin.
Mai laughed. “Smart man,” she said, and Mei giggled.
----------
Over in the next table, the boys groaned as they reached for the tissues, haveing sneezed over and over in succession for the last few minutes.
“They’re talking about us aren’t they,” Micchy said, miserably sniffling.
“Most definitely,” Touma agreed with a pout. “And I doubt they talked about anything good.”

Funny minific idea: Mei weaponizes Ise’s puppy dragon eyes (you decide for what)
Mei exploits her swordboys’ weakness to their dragon baby 
“Mei, no,” Kento groaned, “You are not asking Touma to make a sequel to Kento-kun. I’m already humiliated enough about it as is!”
“I didn’t say it had to be a direct sequel! It could be about Rin-kun the lion, or Tou-chan the dragon!” Mei argued. 
“That... doesn’t sound much better, truthfully,” Rintaro reluctantly replied, giving the author a sideways glance. 
“I never really wanted to write a series like that, to be honest,” Touma admitted. “It was a one off sort of thing?”
“Well, the Chief seems to think it shouldn’t be a one-off,” Mei retorted. “And it did get super popular, remember? Became a bestseller and everything!”
“I know Mei, I just would rather not be reminded of getting turned into a rodent by my idiot senpai every time my husband writes a new story!”
“And I would also like not to be reminded of what happened when I turned into a lion cub... or rather what happened when I turned back.”
“I guess I was pretty lucky with my own incident,” mused Touma, causing the other two to glare at him. “I mean... uh... look, Mei...”
Mei pouted at them. “I guess I have no choice. Time to use the big guns.”
“The... big guns...?” Rintaro questioned, as she left the room.
“Oh, hell,” Touma swore, realizing what she was about to do.
Kento sighed. “I should’ve known she was going to play dirty...”
Mei came back, carrying their son in her arms. Ise looked like Christmas had come early, his eyes sparkling golden in excitement. “Tou-chan! You’re writing a new Kento-kun story?” he asked excitedly. 
“I... Uh...” Touma stuttered. “I- I’m not sure...”
Ise’s expression changed to the one the three swordsmen anticipated, and dreaded at the same time. “But... Tou-chan...” He pouted mightily. “Kento-kun is my favorite... I want more Kento-kun adventures...”
The three fathers flailed at the sight of Ise nearly ready to cry. “A-Ah! Alright, alright,” Kento groaned. “Tou-chan will write more Kento-kun...”
Ise perked up immediately, and Mei also looked rather pleased. “You’re an evil, evil woman,” Rintaro told Mei, shaking his head at her. “Using our child like that...”
She grinned at him, kissing Ise’s head with pride. “Don’t tell me you wouldn’t do the same thing yourself.”

Funny minific idea: Touma decides to let Mei judge Tsukasa’s various outfits and hairstyles over the years to mess with him
MWHAHAHAHA TIME TO DIG UP ALL THE DIRT ON PINKY
“Wow... I guess you anniversary Riders just suck at dressing yourselves, huh.”
“W-What’s that supposed to mean?!” Tsukasa exclaimed in shock. “And besides, who are you to say such a thing to me?”
“I was the one who knocked you out with a frying pan, Mister Destroyer of Worlds,” Mei taunted in reminder. “You deserved that too, by the way, for eating my Rintaro’s eclairs.” She turned back to the photos in her hand. “I can’t believe you went around looking like... this...”
“W-Where did you even get those?!” he demanded. Behind him, Touma sneezed violently, but he didn’t notice the omen, too distracted by the mere existence of the photos.
“I’ll never divulge my sources,” Mei told him, sticking out her tongue at him. “Okay. This. What the fuck were you thinking when you did this.”
Tumblr media
“It’s not my fault! It happens when I’m in a new dimension and stuff!” Tsukasa retorted. “I have no control over what I end up in!”
“And it never occured to you to just... change into your usual getup after you get there? Or even just to restyle your hair to its usual way?” Tsukasa stuttered at Mei’s question. “Oh... What about this one?”
Tumblr media
“It’s one of Nogami’s Imagin, he possessed me and I turned into that,” Tsukasa grumped. “All of them have questionable tastes, I swear...”
“Uh-huh.” Mei muttered, clearly disbelieving him. “And what about this disaster?”
Tumblr media
“...Alright, I have to admit, this one is all me.” Tsukasa sighed. “Though, I did have to play up the whole ‘going mad and bad with power’ angle, hence the crazy hair.”
“...I don’t even want to know what that means,” Mei shook her head in disappointment. She looked up and down at him. “I’m surprised that you somehow managed to look put together right now.”
Tsukasa pouted. “...Natsumikan was the one that picked the outfit out for me.” 
Mei rolled her eyes. “Of course she did.”

Cute idea: Mei does the “Lion King” thing with Ise
Lmao if I remember correctly Ryo did the same thing with Sora in episode 8 (that was the episode with the four swordboys being wholesome together) so it’s not entirely new for everyone
Not to mention the top of the staircase in the Northern Base’s command room is the perfect place to do it so yes, Mei would 100% pull off the Lion King thing. 
Also... c’mon, Rintaro should do it, he’s the actual Lion King

Saber Ot4 with a Prince! Touma, please?
Oooh. Fantasy AU anyone? 
If Touma were a prince, I kinda imagine him as the type that everyone knows to be a bit of an airhead, like he always has his head in the clouds and such. But he always takes the time to get to know all the staff and even the townsfolk in his castle city, he advocates for the people of his kingdom, so everyone loves him. They very much look forward to the day he takes his rightful place as their king.
Mei would be part of the palace staff, but she grew up there and it’s not unusual to see her in the prince’s company. She’s one of the few people who can tell the prince off and get him back down to earth, and Touma prefers her company to his courtiers and other nobles because she’s not trying to get into his good graces or anything. She works in the court as a scribe, copying documents to be distributed around the kingdom.
Rintaro is a knight at the castle, and he rises through the ranks to becomes the prince’s personal bodyguard. He tries to stay professional around his charge, but the prince befriends him, and Touma earns Rintaro’s undying fealty immediately. He also trains Touma in swordfighting and other such skills befitting a warrior prince, even though Touma is very much a pacifist and a poet at heart.
And Kento, he’s a prince from another kingdom that’s allied with Touma’s. They were best friends as kids, but their responsibilities kept them apart for a long time until they grew up. Kento went over to Touma’s kingdom as an ambassador for his kingdom, and ever since they met again they were practically glued at the hip. He is an expert at magic and sorcery, but like Touma he doesn’t actually like fighting.
And from there, proximity just takes over lmao. They spend so much time together it was inevitable that they catch feelings for one another, especially when things go to hell, and they have to fight like hell to protect each other and their kingdom. 
Eventually, Touma becomes king, and they’re right by his side when he does it. No one’s quite sure what to make of their... situation, but hey as long as they’re happy. They lead the kingdom into a golden age and live happily ever after

I now hc Mei to be the fashion police of the Riders, so I demand a minific of her finding Sougo and draging him away to a makeover as he tries to beg for help (bonus points if his time travelers let him be dragged and Woz is trying to take his lord back but Mei’s boys are preventing him because she shouldn’t be crossed)
Honestly, Sougo’s taste in clothes isn’t that bad... He just needs to find stuff that actually fits him right, you know?
Anyways...
“Look, kid, I don’t really care if you want to be a demon overlord or whatever, but if you expect to do that looking like... that, you’ve got another thing coming for you.”
Sougo blinked. “What do you mean? What’s wrong with my clothes?” he asked, looking down at himself.
“What’s wrong- Have you looked at yourself in a mirror?” Mei exclaimed. “Your shirt is at least two sizes too big for you! And what is that belt, even?”
“He has it in every color,” muttered Tsukuyomi under her breath, and Mei stared at her in horror.
“I like my clothes loose!” Sougo protested. “And my belt’s perfectly fine!”
“Sougo, you’re a dancer, you’re bound to have a great figure, and you’re hiding all of that under all this fabric!” Mei retorted. 
“Oh, he has a figure alright,” said Geiz distantly. The three junior Riders behind him coughed, and he blushed, unaware that he’d been overheard.
“Mei-san, just leave me be!” Sougo whined, trying to resist the other girl from dragging him away. “Tsuku, help me out here!” 
“Sougo, I love you, but you’re not the exactly the best-dressed person in the world.” She said. “Honestly, both of you are.”
“Hey, don’t drag me into this,” Geiz protested, his arms crossed protectively over his vest-collar thing.
“Mei-san, I understand your concern for Waga Maou, but as he does not wish for your assistance-” Woz stopped in his tracks when his kouhai put a hand on his shoulder and shook his head.
“I’d give up while I was ahead if I were you,” Touma told him seriously. “Seriously... you don’t want to know what she would do if you crossed her.”
“It involves quite a bit of fire,” Rintaro added for emphasis. Woz’s eyes widened with alarm. “Not that she’d set Sougo on fire, of course, but-”
“I don’t know, Rintaro, when she probably would’ve set that coat on fire with me still wearing it if I didn’t comply with her,” Kento said seriously.
“Wait, what?” Sougo asked, stopping in his tracks, which allowed Mei to finally budge him from his spot.
“Oh, don’t be ridiculous, I wasn’t going to set my boyfriend on fire,” Mei said dismissively. “And I won’t set you on fire either, as long as you let me do a bit of shopping for you!”
“Wait, eh? Eh???” Sougo cried out as she dragged him away. 
“We’ll see you at home, Sougo!” Tsukuyomi shouted after them cheerfully.
“I hope we still get to see him at home,” Geiz said, and Tsukuyomi hit him on the head for the comment.
“Please don’t set fire to Waga Maou!!!” Woz cried plaintively.

Mei’s boys react to someone insulting her
I mean, I’m sure they’ll be more than happy to slice n’ dice them on her behalf, but after she set fire to Kento’s potato sack coat, I’m pretty sure they know she can handle herself just fine.

Minific of the Other swordsmen discovering something burning outside the base… that turns out to be the potato sack
“Oi, Ren, what are you doing staring out the window for?” asked Tetsuo as he carried a tall stack of books. “Come help me out here!”
“Uh... I think the base is on fire...?” Ren said, pointing outside, prompting the older swordsman to drop his books onto the table and join him at the window.
“Wait... what the..?!” The Swordsman of Earth gasped as he saw the smoke billowing just beyond the window’s field of vision. He grabbed his Seiken from the sword-analyzing machine and made haste to investigate, Ren and Tetsuo close on his heels.
They burst out into the cold, heedless of the Arctic wind that blasted onto their faces as they followed the smoke to its source. 
Soon enough, they had found it- a smoldering bonfire, contained within something that looked like a chimney starter, Mei standing over it leisurely stoking the flames with a fire poker. Behind her were a terrified Touma, Rintaro and Kento, who all clung to each other as they gave Mei horrified looks. 
“Uh... Should we ask what’s happening here?” Ren asked, sounding torn between curiosity and exasperation.
“Oh, nothing serious,” Mei said with a grin. “We’re just ridding the world of a fashion atrocity.” She used the fire poker to lift something out of the flames- a long, flaming scrap of burlap-like fabric, slowly crumbling away into ash.
“I-Is that Kento’s jacket?” Tetsuo stared at the flaming bit of sleeve incredulously. 
“I knew you hated that thing, little lady, but... isn’t this a little extreme?!” Ryo exclaimed. 
“Don’t be ridiculous,” Mei said dismissively. “It’s such an eyesore it never deserved to be created to begin with.” She threw the sleeve back into the flames, and it soon vanished in a cloud of cinders.
“We tried to stop her, really,” the novelist explained, “but she wouldn’t budge on it. She threatened to burn my favorite pair of shorts instead!”
“And she threatened to do it to my whole wardrobe!” Rintaro added. “What am I supposed to wear if she burns everything I owned?” he shuddered. 
They looked at Kento, expecting him to say something along the same lines. “Hey, don’t look at me like that, it’s my clothes she’s setting on fire.”
“Just be glad that I didn’t do something worse to it,” she said bluntly. “And trust me, you don’t want to know what I can do to it.”
The six swordsmen shuddered, and it had nothing to do with them standing in the middle of the North Pole. Mei is so scary...

Fic set after episode 38 of the Saber OT4 reuniting and giving Kento all the love and affection he deserves after suffering so much all alone.
Honestly, I’ve written so many fics of this type (written at different points of the show, but more or less happening as though Kento were about to come back), I’ve lost track 
But basically what I envision happening is this pair of fics:
Four is Better than One- the OT4 getting together
In Which Ren was the First to Find Out- the aftermath of the OT4′s first time, featuring Ren as the first one to figure out that it happened
Some other one-shot stuff:
A Tragic Heroine Moment- More of a KenTouma fic where Touma explains why he forgave Kento for his whole Calibur phase
Kento-kun, the Magic Hedgehog- MotW shenangigans turned Kento into a hedgehog and praise ensues
Kento the Cuddlebug- A Rintaro/Kento piece, just pure fluff 
Dedicated to (You)- Another KenTouma piece
Oh My Pretty Pretty Boy (I Love You)- Basically they simp over Kento lmao
Also, anything tagged with #ise (oc) in this blog would naturally occur after Kento came back. :D

Fic where despite Mei throwing away the potato sack coat, Kento secretly kept it to remind himself of his renewed resolve to stay with the ones who loved him whenever he has a bout of depression and the rest of the OT4 walk in on this and comfort and love him (Because Kento is a precious lightning hedgehog boy who must be protected at all costs!)
Personally I feel like Mei would dispose of the potato sack with more... permanent methods (me and @askrikkaiandhyotei​ hc that Mei has Touma get rid of it via burning it with Rekka lmao) 
But yeah, I kinda get what you mean. I think he would have something else that would remind him of that promise more than the potato sack...
Kento sang a soft tune as he took a soft cloth, poured a little of the cleaning fluid Daishinji-san had lent him, then started to polish Raimeiken Ikazuchi. The Seiken buzzed under his fingers, soft and gentle, like the hum of electricity just before a storm.
“I’m sorry I abandoned you for so long,” he whispered to the Sacred Sword, taking care to clean the blade as thoroughly as he could. “I’m so happy you still chose me, after all this time... After what I’ve done...”
He shuddered as the dark, intrusive thoughts started encroaching on his mind again. The images of the world’s destruction, his friends dying as the world dissolved before their eyes... Touma, dying in his arms... Rintaro, sacrificing his life for Mei, only for her to lose herself as well... the only path to salvation was... 
Ikazuchi hissed warningly in his hand, giving him a small shock to boot, as if to chide him for such thoughts. 
Kento looked down at the blade in his hand. The sword Touma entrusted to him, knowing he would do the right thing... Knowing, waiting for him... along with Mei, and Rintaro, and everyone else.
Kento took a deep breath, trying to keep the dark thoughts at bay. No, no... that wasn’t... He had sworn to not let those images decide his future anymore. He had promised... he was going to stay by their side no matter what. He was going to fight for the future he wanted... the future he wanted with them...
It was still so easy to think they’d be better without him... So easy to think that he should be the one to...
“Kento?”
He looked up to see Touma, and Rintaro, and Mei, looking at him in concern. “Oh... guys... What’s up?” he asked. 
Touma smiled sadly, kneeling in front of him, taking his Seiken and the cleaning supplies and putting them on the coffee table behind him. He took Kento’s hands in his and pressed a soft kiss against them. 
Kento’s breath hitched, his heart aching from the incredibly soft gesture. “Touma?” he asked.
“It’s okay, Kento. I know you’re not completely alright yet,” he whispered softly. “But I want you to know... I’m here for you. Every step of the way.”
“And so will I,” said Rintaro, making gentle, soothing gestures on his back. “Whatever you need Kento, I will be here for you.”
“Me too,” declared Mei, pulling his head into her shoulder as she smoothed down his hair. “I won’t ever leave you, Kento.”
“You guys...” 
Touma smiled sadly and moved to embrace him tightly. Kento clung to him, and Mei and Rintaro moved closer to hug him as well. Kento, feeling safe and reassured in their arms, allowed the tears to fall. 
Kento breathed, the dark thoughts dissolving away into nothing as the others chased it away with their love and light. He sobbed in relief. “You guys... thank you...” 
Kento knew he was far from being alright. But with the people he loved by his side... he knew one day, he would be.
(And there on the table, momentarily unseen by the four, the Sword of Lightning glowed, sparks flying as it purred in happiness.)

Minific of Mei dragging her boys to karaoke and she gets a taste of their wonderful singing voices
Yo Toei/Bandai/Avex when are you dropping the full version and/or music video of Rewrite the Story because I didn’t know I needed it in my life until I heard my three swordboys singing in harmony together
“Uh... I didn’t know Mei and Ren were so into this sort of thing...” Rintaro facepalmed as the two started belting out the chorus together, with enough enthusiasm to make up for their lack of synchronization. 
“Oh, you don’t know the half of it,” Touma groaned. “She used to drag me out to parties like these with some of the editors and writers at our publishing house... it was scary how mad she’d get when someone tried to get out of singing.”
“Does that mean that we...?” Touma nodded miserably, and Kento groaned. “I’m sorry... if she hadn’t heard me singing to Ise we wouldn’t be here...”
“Eh, it’s fine. It was Ise, after all.” Touma waved off. “I hope he’s behaving while Emu-san is watching him...”
Mei and Ren plopped back on the couch next to them, having apparently finished the song they were just singing. Mei handed Kento the combination microphone-remote control, which the lightning swordsman looked at with extreme trepidation. “Your turn, boys.” 
Rintaro, Kento and Touma all gave her matching looks of hilarious discomfort. “Uh... Mei, are you certain that you want all of us to...?” Rintaro questioned hesitantly. 
“Of course I do,” Mei said. “I’ve heard all of you sing before- yes, even you, Rintaro- and you all sound great, so what are you guys so scared of?” she asked. 
“You sing?” Kento and Touma parroted at Rintaro, who blushed heavily and turned away from them, his cheeks visibly red even in the dim lighting of the karaoke booth.
“Aw, maybe they have stage fright, Mei-san... but how can they be swordsmen if they’re scared of something like this...” Ren teased, the ninja’s eyes glinting mischievously. “Maybe we should tell Sophia-san that her bravest knights are actually scared of a little thing like this...”
The three swordsmen choked, blinking rapidly as they glared at Ren, who was still giggling at his own joke. “W-What?!” Kento exclaimed in outrage. “What do you mean by that?!”
“We do not have stage fright!” Rintaro practically roared in protest. “And don’t you dare even tell Sophia-san that!”
“Alright, you asked for it, you little gremlin!” Touma grabbed the mic that Ren used, then grabbed another mic for Rintaro and the song book to find their song. “We’re gonna show you what singing is actually like!”
As the trio pored over the songbook to make their pick, Mei raised her hand at Ren who gave her a high five, exchanging sly grins at the success of their plan.

Minific of the bookstore ot4 learning about Kento’s drunk ramblings?
Awww poor lightning hedgehog swordsman’s gonna be embarrassed on his own wedding day hahahahaha
Kento couldn’t believe it finally happened. But here he was, a married man, with the rings and the sacred vows and the three most important people in the world and their baby dragon surrounding him to prove it.
He was so happy, his chest felt like it was going to burst from the sheer joy he felt.
It had been a simple ceremony, with only the swordsmen, Ryo’s family, Luna and Sophia in attendance. The wedding itself wasn’t quite legal, per se, but it didn’t matter. They were married in the eyes of the guild and their friends, and that was exactly what they had wanted.
(They’d have to figure out how to break the news to the other Riders, who will probably be all up in arms about not being invited... but they can figure that one out later.)
And then, of course, there was a party, held in the grandest room of the Northern Base, despite the fact the guest list was so short. Everyone was eating and drinking and laughing to their heart’s content, even the two reticent Shindai siblings who Touma had insisted on inviting. 
The newlyweds were relaxing together at their table, watching their friends make merry and the children play contentedly. They were cuddling as close to each other as they possibly could, arms around each other’s waist and occasionally kissing whenever they felt like it. Whenever they got caught kissing by the others they’d get heckled at, but they were so used to being teased for it that none of them were bothered about it anymore.
All in all, it’d been a perfect day. The most perfect day in all of Kento’s existence.
So of course, something had to come along and make it... slightly less perfect.
Ren jogged up to their table, his hair dishevelled after Ryo had noogied him, teasing him about being the next one to get married off. “Kento-kun, your old man is nuts,” he declared, tugging on his jacket to straighten it out. 
“Sorry about that Ren,” he apologized on Ryo’s behalf. “He tends to get a little.. overemotional when he gets tipsy.” 
“Overemotional is right,” Ren huffed. “He’s worse than you were last night!”
Kento’s eyes went wide as the others blinked at Ren in confusion. “What do you mean by that, Ren?” Touma asked him.
“You have no idea how this guy is when he’s drunk, do you?” Ren questioned, and the other shook their head no. 
Kento made a high-pitched noise, remembering exactly what had transpired in alcohol-induced hazed. “Ren, please, no,” he begged. 
“He kept saying all this sappy stuff about you guys!” Ren complained. “It was all ‘my Touma-kun is so adorable’ and ‘my Mei-chan is so beautiful’ and ‘my Rin-kun is so hot’! And he kept saying the same things over and over!” 
“Did he now?” Rintaro asked with a sly tone as he, Touma and Mei all turned to look at Kento, who felt his ears grow hot with a blush. 
“Aw, that’s so cute, Kento!” Mei cooed at him, throwing her arms around him. “You’re such a cutie!”
“Ren! Why did you have to say that?!” Kento exclaimed as he hid his blushing face.
“Sorry Kento-kun, but it’s payback for the embarrassment you put me through last night,” the ninja gremlin said cheekily.
“Couldn’t you have waited until after the wedding to do it, at least?!” Kento sighed in exasperation. “I’m never going to live this down, damn it...”
