An RP blog for Doctor Kenzo Tenma from Naoki Urasawa's Monster. Potentially NSFW!
Note: 99% sure this blog has lots of homo BL stuff. If that's not your thing you may want to turn 360° and
sprint moonwalk away. this is an incredibly serious blog
Well, I don’t know about myself…
You cannot know how much joy receiving your parcel in the post has given me. I was really very surprised! No one has ever sent me a gift in the mail before.
The book is splendid, really quite interesting, and I enjoy the illustrations very much. How much of this folklore was commonplace to you, I wonder? There were a few things I had a vague knowledge of myself, but some were totally obscure. I suppose it’s much the same in the way of German fairy tales, customs, etc. Certainly I had never known about the majority of them until I was already a grown man. I shall have to ask you about all of that, when next we meet— which I am looking forward to with great anticipation.
I must also apologise for not having responded sooner. I meant to visit you in January, but I came down with something of a cold, and ended up missing my appointment with the psychologist in Münster (along with my general physician, etc).
However, I should be in Münster, one week from today. I’d like very much to be able to see you, maybe have lunch or something? I could meet you at the university, if you’d like. Bring some sandwiches, perhaps? Let me know when and what is most convenient for you.
There are so many things I want to tell you. This will no doubt sound very strange, but I’ve been counting the days until I’ll be able to see you again, hear your voice.
I’m happy the book was to your liking. In all honesty, I leafed through the book before purchasing it but there were actually quite a few stories I didn’t recognize. We’re in the same boat in that regard.
One week from today sounds wonderful. Say, around 13:00? I have most weekends off and that week happens to be one of them if you should decide to lengthen your stay till the day after. I can even treat you to dinner.
I must also apologise as well. I had promised you mountains of letters since your visit but I’ve only this and the other. In all honesty, I’ve sat down with the intention many times before but for some reason or another, I struggled to put my thoughts to words. Whatever I wrote felt inadequate. What helped me, however, and it may help you too in the future should that ever happen to you, was to read some of our old letters. My problem was that I was thinking much too on it. Letters should be fun, light-hearted fare, no?
But sandwiches sound like a terrific idea. I think back on the time we shared sandwiches at the border with great fondness. We should try something like that again one day. With some wine and cheese too. If you’re willing to walk, or jog, or, perhaps even more reasonably, take the bus, we could have lunch at the Botanischer Garten Münster. I don’t know if you’ve been but it’s a beautiful place. On a map, it’s in the shape of a star.
I look forward to your visit. I will also be counting down the days. Do you have the address of my place of work? Or perhaps I could send you the address of the Botanischer Garten? I’ll include both and we can form a plan over the phone (Included are a business card and a tourist pamphlet for the garden).
It goes without saying, but I miss you. I would love to show you around my apartment if you’ll consider it, but if you like we could do that some other time. Whatever you may feel is best.
That’s my favorite.
Depends. Is there something you would like me to do?
Oh I don’t know, I prefer my chocolate to be more…. cakey.
☾ : Sleep headcanon
These days Tenma can’t just go to bed and fall asleep. He needs to prepare himself ahead of time and unwind. Sometimes he reads or drinks a glass of wine or works on crossword puzzles.
☠ : Drinking/drunk headcanon
Tenma hardly ever binge drinks or drinks to get drunk. He can count the times he’s had on one hand and it’s usually after something very upsetting in his personal life.
☼ : Childhood headcanon
When he was young, one of his friends snuck an issue of Heibon Punch (sort of like Japan’s ‘Playboy’) into their circle but Tenma wasn’t really all that interested because he had already seen everything in his parents’ medical textbooks beforehand. He pretended to though.
☯ : Genderbent headcanon
Tenma’s feeling of not belonging would probably be even more acute due to rigid gender roles. Tenma would still dress like a slob and feel most comfortable in masculine clothing.
⋆ : Sex headcanon
He likes to go down and leave little kisses everywhere.
☮ : Bedroom/house/living quarters headcanon
Tenma often has book overflow — so many books, that there isnt room for them on the shelves so he stacks them on the desk, chairs, and sometimes even the bed. Every time he moves somewhere he tries again not to take on too many books this time but somehow it ends up that way again. Eva used to make him throw away old magazines.
☄ : Any AU headcanon (modern, school, medieval, and so on)
No matter what he does in any AU, he’ll always be doing something with his life that includes helping other people. I think in some of them, it might be kind of cute if he were a Christian or maybe Catholic — taking to heart the bits about helping others.
♤ : Cooking headcanon
Tenma only really learned to cook Japanese food when he moved to Germany, finding himself homesick for the flavors. The ingredients he started out with were largely Vietnamese as that was more readily available.
☻ : Mood headcanon
When Tenma’s in a bad mood he prefers to be alone but if he’s angry enough he’ll sometimes confide in a person on his own.
