If I Look in Your Eyes (I'll Want You to Hold Me)
If I Look in Your Eyes (I'll Want You to Hold Me) is a story written by green papaya. It ran in Issue 80 at http://www.shousetsubangbang.com/mirror/if-i-look-in-your-eyes-ill-want-you-to-hold-me.
Holly has been in love with Key since the first time that she met him in university. Years later, she's ready to stop hiding her feelings and make a move.
First off: no, Key is not named after the SHINee band member. If you don't know what I'm talking about, that's good. If you do...well, we have a common interest. When Key decided he wanted to go by another name, he shortened his wallet name to the syllable "Ki," but people kept pronouncing it "Kye," so he changed the spelling and decided he liked the way it looked. It's stuck ever since.
The idea for this story came from a dream. I don't remember it very well, but I think it involved two people doing Netflix and chill and then, you know, "chilling." I woke up and started telling my wife about it, and as the conversation continued I added more details, like that the characters had known each other for a while and one of them was a teacher. Then we came up with the names, and this story was up and running.
However, the most important thing you need to know is that Key's appearance and aura is perfectly captured by Shirota-san from Aggretsuko . Yeah, you heard me correctly: Key's fursona would be a middle-aged polar bear. You're welcome.
