Mama I’m In Love With A Fictional Character ~ Two Sides of The Same Coin Pt. 2 Shadow x Reader

Man, I don’t think I’ve actually been this nervous before. Not even before a Beef at S., You think to yourself as you stand outside of the little bistro that you and Hiromi agreed to meet at. You smile as you look around at the scenery before you. The bistro sat in front of a cute little park where there were trees galore and some kids still playing on the playground. And the place was situated in the quiet part of downtown so there wasn’t much traffic going on letting you enjoy the sounds around you. From birds chirping to casual conversations of random passers-by.

You bring your phone out of your pocket and move to call him to see if everything was ok and if he was on his way until you hear Hiromi’s voice suddenly behind you.

“Hey (Y/n)! Sorry, I’m late, I just had a few things I needed to take care of really quick.” He says bashfully.

He looks so sweet and cute!

A soft smile quickly graced your features, and you wave him off. “It’s no worry really. I wasn’t waiting long.”

He smiles back making your heart do a few flips. “Well, um, shall we?” Hiromi offers you his hand.

He is so cute when he is bashful like this. I’m actually quite glad that our manager set us up. If it weren’t for her, we probably would be left pining over each other like a couple of school kids. “We shall.” A giggle passes your lips as you take his hand.

Hiromi’s hand fits so perfectly in yours you notice as you glance down at your conjoined hands. He also feels so warm and comforting. This moment couldn’t be more perfect.

“Oi move it! Coming through!” A voice yells out as a guy rushes past the two of you on a skateboard.

“Hey! Get back here that skateboard isn’t yours!” Another voice yells slightly out of breath. The owner of the voice—a young boy coming to a stop next to you both. “Man, that was my favorite skateboard too.” The kid says.

You clench your teeth. If it were one thing you hated most, it would be other skaters taking advantage of others or dissing their skateboards, or even worse—destroying them. Especially if they thought they were the superior skater. That’s why Shadow infuriated you so much.

You look around and see what looks like two of the kid’s friends roll up to him and give him a sympathetic look. Perfect. “Hey, I wanna help you out so can you lend me a board really quick?”

Both the group of boys and Hiromi give you surprised looks, but one of the boys’ friends—a lanky blonde with dimples, nods, and hands you his dark blue board. You smile at him and take off with the board making your way towards the skateboard thief.

“The way she took off and is moving on that skateboard, could she be (N/n)?“ Hiromi mutters. He shakes his head deciding to put that thought off for now and asking the other boy—a short brunette, for his black board. He then speeds off after you.

As you come upon a turn, you see that the thief is getting further and further away. “Not gonna happen, dude.” You then flip your board to the side so you’re riding on the rim slightly and use the upcoming hill to gain speed. But what you didn’t account for is a sudden crack in the asphalt catching your board effectively throwing you off and making you land face-first into the grass-covered sidewalk.

“Ha! Try to catch me now you skateboard wanna be!” The thief yells back at you.

“Oh, hell no! You do not talk to her like that!” You hear a rather familiar deep voice yell out.

Ugh. The last thing I need is Shadow of all people trying to “come to my rescue”. Pushing yourself off of the dirt and grass you find yourself frozen in shock as you see the owner of the voice come speeding by you.


He glances back at you almost in an apologetic manner then turns his attention back to the thief. “It’s one thing to steal someone’s board, but it’s an entirely different matter when you mock the girl I like!”

Hiromi fishes out some very familiar small objects and chucks them towards the thief. “Haemanthus Bomb!” He yells out as he throws the small little bombs and effectively trips up the skateboard thief so he can get the skateboard back.

** Time skip brought to you by Langa’s love for snowboarding **

You leaned against the wall of the Italian Bistro as you watched Hiromi give the boy’s skateboard back. He smiles and thanks him while Hiromi just smiles back bashfully and tells him to think nothing of it. You scoff. Think nothing of it riiiiight. You have been keeping from me that you’re the Anti-Hero Dark Prince Shadow from the S races and you’re still acting like the bashful Hiromi I thought I came to know.

Then again you were keeping from him that you were an S skater too. Not only that but the same skater that creamed him in a beef the other day. You let out a sigh and run a hand through your hair. This is gonna be an interesting conversation…

“So,” Hiromi starts as he walks over to you.

You kick-off of the wall you were leaning on. “So…You’re Shadow aren’t you Hiromi?”

He lets out a sigh and runs his hand through his orange-red hair. “Yea. And the way you were skating makes you (N/n), doesn’t it?”

You nod.

“So where does this leave us Small-fry?”

You try to hold back the sad smile that wanted to grace your features, but you failed miserably. “In all honesty Hiro-Chan, I don’t really know. Seeing that our skater personas practically hate each other—”

“But I don’t hate you I never did. As Shadow, I admire you and your skill. It just pissed me off that you were getting better and better, and I didn’t think that I could keep up. And as regular me, what I said at the Tulip store stays the same. But how do you feel Small Fry? Does this change anything with how you feel about me?”

You look up at him. His voice now deeper, like how it sounds when he’s Shadow—probably that’s how he always sounds. But yet, even with this new info you just can’t bring yourself to feel that same irritation you always felt when you saw him as Shadow in S. You just saw him as Hiro-Chan. The sweet guy from the Tulip store that you fell for. And now, you would get to share another part of each other’s lives too.

“I could say it does, seeing as you and I are rivals in S. But I’d be completely lying to myself. Just because our skater sides are not exactly known to be close doesn’t mean we can’t be. I like you for you Hiro-Chan. Even the overly competitive, slightly egotistical, frustrating—”


“You didn’t let me finish you, dork. Even though we are complete opposites when it comes to skating doesn’t mean that has to affect how we truly feel about each other. As the great Shakespeare has said: What is a rose, by any other name would smell just as sweet.”

He lets out a chuckle. “Very true. I’m glad you feel that way. In all honesty, I was actually afraid you wouldn’t accept that side of me.”

“Pfft. The great Shadow, afraid? Color me surprised.”

Hiromi just smirks.

“I understand that though. But hey now that all cards are on the table we can actually be together without worrying about our skating coming in the way. Well, aside from me kicking your ass without remorse regardless of our relationship.”

“Hah! Small Fry I’d like to see you try. But I’m glad my girlfriend has some spunk to her.”

“Girlfriend eh? I like the sound of that. Who knows maybe one of these days I’ll have to add princess of darkness to my skater name.”

Hiromi lets out a growl and pulls you in for a heated kiss. You both part after a while slightly out of breath but with big goofy smiles on your faces. “You might just have to. Then people will know that you’re mine.”

You giggle at this. Yesterday, if someone told you you’d fall for the Anti-hero of S, you’d laugh in their face and call them a complete moron. And if someone told you you’d fall for the sweet boy you work with at the Tulip shop, you’d turn as red as a tomato and squeak out an excuse.

But now, look at you. A girl who fell for two sides of the same coin.

Mama I’m in Love With a Fictional Character ~ Two Sides of the Same Coin: Shadow x Reader

“Hah, you really wanna do this girlie? You still have like, three seconds to back out.”

You grit your teeth and glower up at the smirking face of S’s renowned anti-hero Shadow. “Oh, I’m sure all right. And when I win—and I will win, you apologize to Reki-kun for not only humiliating him but destroying his skateboard that he worked so hard on.” You took your sleek oak wood skateboard that was littered with stickers of your favorite animes and bands on it out from underneath your arm and place it on the ground in front of you.

You feel a comforting hand on your shoulder, but you don’t even have to look to know it’s Reki. “Reki, I don’t need you to try and talk me out of this. Yea, it was satisfying to see Langa beat Shadow and cream him in the race,”


“But as your childhood friend and self-proclaimed sister, I need to do this.”

Reki just let out a sigh and you saw Langa cock his head in curiosity. Then a smile crosses Reki’s features as he lets out a tired sigh. “I know, but I had to try. Go get ‘em (Y/n). I believe in you!”

You hear Shadow let out a snort. “How sweet. It makes me wanna puke. Are we going to race or what?”

Rolling your eyes you can’t help but feel pure irritation for the anti-hero. He was cocky, self-centered, and the complete opposite of everything that you were. That’s why it will be even more satisfying to beat him in this race. Even more so seeing that you can say that the great Shadow was taken down twice, once by a total newb and the second time by a girl. Oh, the look on his face will be so worth it! You thought.

You hop on your board and send a glare Shadow’s way. “Ready whenever you are, jerk.” Shadow just simply gives you one of his signature sneers in response.

*** Time Skip brought to you by Cherry choking out Joe ***

“And the winner is (N/n)!” The announcer yells as you and Shadow pass the finish line, all eyes glued to the screen watching the reply of the race.

You jump off your board putting it back under your arm and run over and hug Reki and Langa. “See guys! I told you I could do it.” You giggle as you hold the two boys tighter.

Reki makes what sounds like a pained grunt while Langa starts feeling like a limp noodle, making you let go of them immediately. “Hehe, sorry boys, sometimes I don’t know my own strength.”

“Yea, no kidding,” Reki mutters.

“Hey!” you let out a sigh but then turn to Shadow with a smirk as wide as the Cheshire Cat’s on your face. “So…. Shadow,” you start as you walk up to him pulling Reki along with you. “I think you owe my friend here an apology.”

You had to do everything you could to hold back the laughter that was quickly making its way through you as you look up at Shadow—seeing as he dwarfed your small, or as you liked to call it ‘fun sized’ stature. The look on his face was priceless. He looked like he was going to pop a blood vessel or crack a tooth with how hard he was grinding his teeth. And the scowl on his face was the cherry on top. Nothing is better than bringing a cocky jerkwad who thinks he’s the king of the skatepark down a few notches.

“Well, I’m waiting.” You say in a sing-songy voice.

Shadow let out a growl but then turned to Reki. “I,” he let out a long-suffering sigh. “I’m sorry for breaking your board. You’re not totally a shitty skater. You actually have talent.”

Reki lets out a small chuckle. “Thanks, you aren’t so bad either.”

You couldn’t help the giggle that passes your lips which immediately caught both skaters’ attention. “What? I thought it was actually kinda sweet that you two complimented each other like that. All I was aiming for was an apology, but you went the full nine yards. I’m impressed Shadow.”

A look of shock passes over Shadow’s features along with what you thought looked like a blush. But as soon as it came it was gone. “Just get outta here. You already won. No need to rub it in.”

You just shake your head. “Sometimes I just don’t understand you, man. C’mon boys let’s get going.”

The Next Day…

“Ugh, I knew I should have taken aspirin or some kind of pain meds when I got home last night. My legs are killing me.’ You grumble as you steadily climb the ladder you were on to get some fertilizer for a customer.

“Hah! Gotcha’—whoa!” You yell as the fertilizer bag slips from your grasp, the momentum of the bag sending you toppling towards the ground. You cringe and wait for the painful fall…but nothing happens. Instead, you hear a soft grunt and feel warm arms encasing your small frame.

“Careful there (Y/n), you should have asked me to get that bag for you. I don’t know what I’d do if you got hurt.”

You blush and chuckle softly as you look up into the sweet face of your red-headed coworker and much to your own embarrassment crush, Hiromi Higa. Not that he would ever know though you’d rather lose a thousand races to Shadow than admit your crush.

“U-uhm thanks, Hiromi. That would have been a pretty bad fall huh?”

Hiromi gently puts you down and swings the fertilizer bag over his shoulder as the both of you walk out of the storage room and into the lobby to hand the bag to the customer. “It would have. So promise me to be more careful yea?”

You give a scoff and thwack his side playfully. “Look whose talking. Sometimes you come into work with a bruise or a cut mister. And you never tell me what happened.”

He just turns away with a bashful look on his face and rubs his neck. “Ah, I guess I’m just clumsy myself.”


You then hear Hiromi’s phone ding and as he takes it out his sweet features turn to that of a scowl. Almost reminding you of the scowl Shadow gave you last night when you creamed him in the beef. You chuckle to yourself at the comparison. There couldn’t be more people so unlike each other. The comparison was absolutely hilarious.

“You ok there Hiro-Chan?” You ask, using the nickname you gave him once the two of you became close after all the years working in the tulip shop.

He immediately pockets his phone and turns to you with a smile. “Heh, yea it’s nothing.”

You quirk an eyebrow. “Oh, yea? By the way, you were strangling that poor phone it sure didn’t look like nothing. C’mon, lemme see!” You jump and try your best to get to Hiromi’s phone, but he keeps holding it just out of your reach chuckling at your futile attempts to get it.

“With that height, you’ll never get it, my small fry.” He says, using the nickname he has for you. You just pout and cross your arms in response.


“You know, I’m surprised you two aren’t dating yet. You’d look too adorable as a couple.” The manager of the Tulip shop says popping out from behind a tower of yellow tulips to the right of you.

Both you and Hiromi stammer and turn as red as the tulips sitting on the counter in front of you. “I—we—How did—but”

She just giggles. “Hiromi. Just ask (Y/n) out already. It’s obvious she likes you back. And clearly, the girl is too stubborn to make the first move.”

Your eyes go wide at her declaration. “M-manager-san!”

She just smirks at you. “It’s true and you know it. So c’mon already everyone knows you two like each other don’t keep us waiting now.”

Turning your head back to the front of the shop you see a bunch of the regular customers nodding and giving encouraging smiles.

Ookay I think this is much, much worse than losing a race to Shadow or any skater for that matter. Please let there be some kind of black hole that swallows me up right now.

Hiromi clears his throat making you turn to him. “Well, um. She isn’t wrong I do really like you Small fry, you’re sweet, funny, no to mention the way you care about everyone, and make sure to go out of your way to make everyone happy. It makes me want to take care of you and look out for you. And make you happy for once. So uh, will you go out with me? Say, Friday night at this new Italian bistro that just opened up?”

You bite your lip in shyness and muster all of your courage to look up at Hiromi’s equally blushing face. “Well, with a confession like that, how can a girl say no?”

Then the next thing you know your being picked up into Hiromi’s strong arms and swung around in a big bear hug. “I’m so glad you said yes. I was actually kind of worried.”

You just smile up at him. “No need to be worried Hiro-Chan, I’d always say yes to you.”

A/N: Oh Kami, this is going to be one interesting date isn’t it guys? Heh. What will happen when little Reader-Chan finds out that Hiromi is actually Shadow? But better yet, what will happen when he finds out that Reader-Chan is the same skater that beat him in the beef? Will they still like each other and get over their differences of their supposed alter egos? Can love truly conquer all? And why is Rebel Fae asking so many questions? XD We will find out in the next part! So see ya’ll there and thanks for reading!

Rebellious Reviews! Sk8 The Infinity~Ep. 1-3

Hey guys welcome to a Rebellious Review! I know, it’s been forever since I’ve done one of these huh? But from now on I plan to do a review each week so look forward to that you guys! Anyway this week I’m going to be reviewing the first three episodes of the new anime everyone seems so hyped up about lately: Sk8 The Infinity. So far this anime has been pretty interesting so let’s see how this goes eh?

Let’s do this!


Alrighty, when it first starts out it immediately catches your attention. It brings you to a back story of how everything started for our main character. What made him pursue his passion of skateboarding and what he really loves about it. Then it immediately cuts to the battle of him and the supposed “Anti-hero of Sk8: Shadow. It…well, it doesn’t go well for our lovable Reki. But I’ll leave the major details out so I don’t spoil anything. It then shows our precious cinnamon bun Langa coming in from his old home Canada. And boy this does adorable silver headed cutie shake things up taking the skate boarding world by storm like no one has ever seen before.

I mean c’mon. How cute is this?! Look at that pouty face! 🙂

This get’s the attention of known skaters everywhere and we get an unstoppable duo between Reki and Langa. With Reki’s skills with making skateboards and Langa’s special skills it makes the whole three episode amazing and interesting. And that’s saying something coming from me considering I usually don’t really care too much about skateboarding.

Score: 10/10


So far we’ve been introduced to what could possibly be all of our characters in the anime. But, it’s still too early in the anime to judge that completely. I absolutely love the characters so far from Reki and Langa our main protagonists, to Shadow, Cherry, Joe and all of the others. It’s also quite entertaining to see how outside of the S skateboarding matches the characters have a completely different personality. For example, Shadow–a rough and tumble guy in the S games, but a completely different guy: He runs a flower shop. If that’s not hilarious and lovable I don’t know what is.

The only thing I would say I wish I would have gotten a little bit more background or introduced just a little bit more about our characters in the first few episodes. Just to get more of a feel for the older characters that we’re introduced to. But, the fact that we weren’t given too much information maybe because they will play a much bigger and much more important role later on in the anime. So, it’s yet to be seen.

Score: 9/10

Opening and Closing Theme music:

I think without a doubt Sk8 The Infinity has one of the catchiest music and entertaining to watch openings I have seen in a while. Both of them are really catchy and easily get in your head when you listen to them. Plus, it’s just so cute to see our protagonists dance in the openings. This makes me wonder what they have in store for us in the next episodes of this anime.

Score: 10/10

Overall Fangirl Score: 10/10

Final Score: 39/40

So that’s it for this week’s Rebellious Review. What did you guys think? Do you agree with the score? Have you watched the anime yourself? I’d love to hear what y’all think! Well, that’s all for now,

Rebel Fae out!
