RANMA GEKIRETSU


Texture… hmh… his brain churned back to the old times of baking for no one. Those pancakes were often very tough on the mouth and teeth… so they were supposed to be softer! Maybe that’s what she meant by texture – and baking powder brought that out of the dough! Brilliant! He really had to go buy a cooking book one of these days…



I-I mean, it couldn’t be that hard, right? Why’d he need… a book… well… forget that, for now- wait, no, wait! It could mean more cooking times with Erica, trying out various, tasty dishes – and Ranma did function much better with a full stomach! She’d definitely appreciate that, you mouthy genius!

14th of February… ohhhhhh, that funny day, huh? What a coincidence – it wasn’t like you could control giving birth or something, so he’d say Erica’s mum hit the jackpot. Wait… that felt a bit weird-

SOoooooooooooooooo, uh, about his birthday… hmh… huh? When was his birthday? If it was similar to hers, then… the pancakes- wait, no, Auntie and Unckie were never told about his birthday from his parents, were they? Unless…

“I think… I think I know why she baked pancakes for me every- oh, here ya go!” Ranma interrupted himself by handing a tablespoon of sugar towards the sieve and pouring it down, “Sugar… in pancakes? But it looks like flat bread, though – or maybe it gives more taste… sweet bread cakes! So that’s why pancakes taste so good! No wonder mine tasted like horse cra- oh, about my birthday…”

Okay, he had to dial back to the topic at hand. “… Maybe that’s what Auntie was trying to tell me. About this whole pancake thing after we saw those stars – I don’t really know the date, but it’s… kinda my birthday? Like? Like my birthday? Sort of, like, my birthday? I hope it’s my birthday… I-I… I think… I don’t know…”

His face did sour a little bit. “Unckie once told m- I mean, Uncle once told me they took me in on a special night. Maybe it’s to celebrate that? I-I could’ve asked for more details, but… it’s too late now…”



"I'd like to think it's my birthday, but… the only people who'd know for sure aren't exactly worth our time, anyway. Y-You know, it's not that important - I just know that today's a special day, and that's why we're celebrating it with a hundred pancakes! Isn't that right, Snuggles?"

Snuggles, simply rolled on his back and stretched out in response, curious as to what Ranma was yapping about. It sounded off, as if he was actively pushing back the sour tone he had a moment ago in favor of a more upbeat, optimistic attitude. No need to go all grumpy when the most important woman in his life was right next to him.

ERICA TOLVAN

The healer cottoned on to the meaning behind his words and her smile faded a touch. It was never easy to lose someone close and from the sounds of it, he’d sadly lost both of his closest family members. Death was a part of a life, one that Erica saw more than most due to her work and it’d helped her take on a philosophical way of thinking about it. That being said, her heart still went out to him and she hoped that in her own way, she could become family to him. They already were, right?

“Even if it’s not your official one, I see no reason why it shouldn’t be anyway. It’s how the day makes you feel that matters.” She replied as she worked, deftly continuing her work. “I’ll most certainly remember it and I hope that we can make this a yearly thing. Maybe we could try a more adventurous flavour next time as I know that banana, chocolate and strawberry pancakes are all makeable too.” Erica was teasing a little, trying to fire up his imagination but she was sincere as well, more than happy to take part in his tradition.

Her gaze briefly turned to the ginger menace, who was making himself quite at home. “We’ll have to keep our eyes open though, otherwise a certain someone will eat them.” She couldn’t be sure but Erica could’ve sworn she caught the cat grinning, as though he understood what she said.

RANMA GEKIRETSU


”…” Erica would remember this day. It made him feel special to her… it warmed him. No, no, stop, don’t flow, don’t flow, you’re in the middle of something…

Okay, instead of his eyes, his mouth began watering a bit – strawberry banana choco-pancakes? If that was a thing, he almost wanted to make it right now! Buuuuuuuuuut they were probably already past the point of no return with the normal flavor – Ranma wasn’t too sure where that point was during their baking, but he wasn’t taking any chances with risk of ruining the product. Erica had put so much effort into helping him out, after all – he’d never forgive himself if he sabotaged her aid… but still…

“Chocolate pancakes…” he dreamed ahead, imagining dark-brown flat pastries with chips of chocolate bulging out like spines. The extra, faint crunches of that choco-ness would make his mouth explode…

Snuggles was a big fan of dairy products of all kinds – except cheese, it smelled too strong. But Erica was onto him, and he had to lower his gaze… but he’d get his moment.

“We… I bet we look like a newlywed couple right now,” Ranma randomly commented after a moment of silence. Yeah… newlyweds… he’d still not met Erica’s father, though. If what he’d learned in the 8th Division was of help, then blessings were important – it would display his dedication to her if he at least tried to request her father’s approval… but he’d not heard much about this elusive figure.

Then again, it was Erica’s father! He must’ve been a cool fella, just like her mother. “Wait, what was next? Was it the, uhh, eggs?”

“Newlyweds, huh? Almost sounds as if you’re proposing something.” Erica teased, giving him a glance with those green orbs of hers. It was all in good fun but she had to admit that she rather liked the thought. The healer hadn’t ever thought about the possibility of actually getting married before, as she’d been so focused on her studies, both before and after becoming a Shinigami. The thought was a sweet one though and maybe one day, it was something that’d have to be looked into more seriously.

As the topic turned back to what they were doing, Erica would flick her haze over to the recipe, before looking back to Ranma. “We’ve got one more dry ingredient to put in before we get to the wet ones. Just like a quarter teaspoon of salt should do the trick. After that, we can get to the more messy stuff.” She chuckled at that point, glancing down at the rather now thoroughly sifted mixture. Yes, a little salt would be needed, just to make sure. A part of her wondered just how accurate the recipe was but she was willing to go along with it.

RANMA GEKIRETSU


… Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. He felt a painful urge to grab her waist and throw her on the table, shower her with all of his passion when her emerald, glowing eyes gazed at him like that. Do you have any idea how frustrating that felt – it was like his heart was suddenly wrung out by some hands, spraying its tender, dense love out like pushing water out of an overfilled sponge. Over the time they’d been together, a dating couple… more than that… sharing day-to-day life with her, under her roof… getting to know Erica, her bed hair, her evening habits, her being…

She was so… accepting. Accepting of him, of his… well, less-than-favorable habits and boons. Hell, she found pleasure in some of his antics – genuine smiles came from her at times, even. Who could resist that, huh? You expect him to just… stand still and just smile back? I mean… he kinda had to, they were in the midst of baking, but if that wasn’t the case, she’d be naked on the table right now.

Wait, Snuggles would have to leave the room, too… no peeping!

“*Ahem* A teaspoon of salt on the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay-“ Ranma declared with the teaspoon of salt heading towards the bowl before turning it upside down. Salt… he could never taste salt in the pancakes before – actually, was that the salt which made it taste like shit? Did he put too much in it?

He probably did, didn’t he?

Snuggles had been observing the couple from the dinner table, getting more and more tempted to return to the kitchen desk and join the team, but an order was an order. He’d wait patiently for his pancake… but his sharp nose was catching many pleasant smells. "Woooooooooooo, I can already tell! These pancakes are gonna be special…"

Chuckling as he added the salt, Erica would finish her sifting and glance down at the bowl for a second. “I hope so but let’s not count our chickens just yet.” The healer said with a laugh, before making a small well in the doughy mixture for the wet items to go in. This was going to be the fun and messy part, with the Kido users eyes filling with mirth. If anything was going to go wrong, it’d either be at this point or once they started flipping the batter. She could remember her own first try as a child and she’d made quite a mess.

“Right! It’s time to add the milk now. If you could pour out a cup of milk for me, we can add that in and take things up a gear. It’s important to get it just right though, right in the well that I just made. We gotta get these wet ingredients in there.”
Erica sounded so cheerful at that point, simply happy to be something fun with her boyfriend. It was the simple things in life that brought the most joy, a fact that the healer was discovering every day that she was with Ranma and Snuggles.

Speaking of which, the ginger monster was still watching it all, large eyes always on the bowl.
