AkiBen/BenAki fluff? :D or maybe AkiBen angst? ( wonder what would have to happen for there to be angst between these two kotatsi dorks )
Oh there are ways of making AkiBen angst, trust me :P Maybe due to like a Strain power or something Akiyama suddenly finds himself only able to say the opposite of what he means, the problem is even Akiyama isn’t aware he got hit by the power so he’s just suddenly being an impolite jerk to everyone for no apparent reason. Benzai tries to talk to him to see if he’s okay and Akiyama snaps at him, complaining that Benzai’s always bugging him like can’t I have five minutes to myself without you fussing over me it’s so irritating. Benzai’s very hurt by that because of course he and Akiyama have always had each other’s backs and this sudden turn in personality is a complete blindside. He tries to ask what brought this on and Akiyama ends up going on a whole rant about how he always has to do everything and Benzai’s just coasting along on his coattails, like if there’s a situation Akiyama has to be the one taking charge and doing things by the book while Benzai takes advantage of that to sometimes be a bit sneakier and more underhanded and Akiyama doesn’t see why he has to be the boring straight laced one. Plus whenever anything bad happens Benzai’s always so fussy, like Akiyama’s some kid who needs to be soothed and taken care of and it’s just so annoying, Akiyama would like to be on his own sometimes instead of always having Benzai by his side. Benzai’s understandably upset and immediately takes his leave, excusing himself and probably asking one of the other alphabet boys if he can share their room for the night because he’s giving Akiyama what he wants after all, some alone time. Akiyama wakes up the next morning all alone in his room and back to normal, with his mouth tasting vaguely like profanity and horrified at himself for being so terrible to Benzai.
So of course now poor Akiyama’s all flustered and upset wondering if Benzai hates him now, like maybe he won’t even want to be with me anymore and what do I do how can I apologize and he ends up in the kitchen making a million pots of tea in order to calm himself down. Fushimi spots him and just raises an eyebrow, Akiyama gives a sheepish excuse and Fushimi’s like ‘not my problem.’ Except a minute later Benzai comes walking in saying Fushimi-san told him he was needed in the kitchen and then he just trails off when he sees Akiyama there with the tea. Akiyama stutters out Benzai’s name and Benzai immediately turns and apologizes, saying he’ll get out of Akiyama’s way. Akiyama runs forward and grabs his arm to stop him, Benzai’s a little surprised by how forceful he is. Akiyama gives this low bow and just starts with a rambling upset apology, saying he doesn’t know what came over him but he didn’t want to say any of those things, those words weren’t his at all and he’s always, always wanted Benzai there. He can’t even look at Benzai the whole time, just saying he understands if Benzai doesn’t want to see him again but he really wants to apologize because he ruined everything and made Benzai upset. He’s stopped by Benzai’s hand on his shoulder, Akiyama looks up to see Benzai giving him this fondly exasperated smile like I should have known something was wrong when you stopped speaking politely halfway through yelling at me. Akiyama starts to apologize yet again and Benzai just hugs him, breathing in the Akiyama’s scent for a moment as he pulls Akiyama close, totally relieved himself that Akiyama really didn’t just abandon him. When they finally pull away from each other they’re both smiling a bit and then Akiyama laughs sheepishly and asks Benzai if he wants some tea, Akiyama made a lot and all of it is Benzai’s favorite kind.
