I just love the thought of misaki asking fushimi random (but not stupid) questions, and fushimi having to answer them, (cause he smart):)
be cute if this was like a regular thing between the two of them. It
starts when they’re adorable middle schoolers, one day Yata’s just
flipping through a comic and he ends up wondering about the
plausibility of something that happened. Fushimi gives him this
perfect detailed explanation in reply without even really thinking
about it, like he doesn’t even look up from his PDA until afterward
and then he sees Yata staring at him with sparkling eyes all ‘that’s
Saruhiko!’ After that every now and again Yata will ask him fun
random questions, like they’re walking home and see a neat-looking
cat and Yata asks if there’s a reason it only has a tiny bob tail, or
they’re talking about building a rocket ship again and Yata asks him
to explain how exactly the engine works anyway. Fushimi always
answers him without complaining, even if Yata gets really into it and
starts asking questions about the answer Fushimi will still reply.
Yata thinks it’s amazing because Fushimi’s really smart and knows
everything and Fushimi always gets a little red-faced about it, like
he pretends that it’s nothing but of course really he loves being
praised by Misaki.
Then maybe once they join Homra Yata stops asking him things because Yata doesn’t want to look stupid in front of the Homra guys (but then sometimes he’ll ask questions to Kusanagi or Totsuka and be amazed at the answers, and Fushimi just sits there in the corner alone clicking his tongue). Post-ROK maybe things are still kinda awkward between them, like they’ve made up but they both still don’t quite know how to get back into their old rhythm of being friends. One day Yata convinces Fushimi to go drinking with him and just hang out, Fushimi’s sitting there at the bar counter nursing his drink while Yata talks and mostly he nods or clicks his tongue in response to anything Yata says. Yata stares at him for a minute and then finally he’s like ‘So, how did the age you’re old enough to drink alcohol get decided, anyway?’ Fushimi kinda looks up and then averts his eyes, muttering about why would Yata ask that and Yata just smiles and says that he’s asking because Fushimi knows everything, after all. Fushimi’s face gets extra red and he still can’t really look Yata in the face but he starts giving the answer anyway while Yata leans against his shoulder.
