how do you think awashima would react if she found out fushimi was self harming, or if she walked in on him one night harming himself? regardless of whether theyd be in a romantic relationship or not, but I just love the idea of her taking care of him and wrapping bandages around his arms annd giving one a kiss its cute
I imagine her being shocked initially and then stern and disapproving but also really caring towards him, trying to help him. Like maybe Fushimi stayed late to work as normal and Awashima’s already gone to bed but then she recalls there was something she forgot in the office. She walks back into the room to find Fushimi there at his desk looking up at her in surprise, knife in hand and cuts on his wrist, with obvious older scars visible now that he’s removed the wristbands. I think her initial reaction would just be to ask what’s going on, her voice is stern as if she’s caught Fushimi doing something terrible and Fushimi’s just frozen because he didn’t expect to be caught. He initially tries to cover it up, yanking his sleeve back over his wrist and looking away with a click of his tongue. Awashima recovers herself quickly and just strides over to him asking what the meaning of this is. Fushimi tries to blow it off like it’s none of her business and she should just go away and Awashima just pulls his sleeves back up to reveal the scars. Fushimi’s all irritated and embarrassed at being caught, probably just waiting for her to go tell Munakata and then everyone will fuss over him like he’s damaged or something.
Instead Awashima has him sit down and tells him to stay there while she gets the first aid kit. Fushimi’s like that’s not necessary and Awashima rattles off all the issues he could have if the cuts go untreated, like you could lose your sword arm Fushimi-kun I don’t think you want that. Fushimi’s all confused, waiting for the lecture, but instead Awashima opens the first aid kit and begins to gently take care of the wounds. Fushimi probably ends up being the one to break the silence, wondering if she’s going to scold him or ask him questions, and Awashima just notes that scolding him rarely has an effect anyway as she carefully cleans his wound and bandages his arms. I think she would make it clear that she disapproves of what Fushimi’s doing to himself and that she is worried but she also wants him to feel comfortable with her, like this way Fushimi at least knows that if he does go overboard one day Awashima will be happy to clean his wounds and bandage his arms. I do think she’d want to try and get him help though, like I can imagine the more she realizes what’s going on the more forceful she is about it because she’s so worried about Fushimi and she wants to be able to help him somehow, to make him realize that it’s important he take care of himself more than anyone and that he shouldn’t have to hurt himself just to feel some relief from all his chaotic emotions.
