One day Yata hugged Fushimi and kept crying because he felt so tired. He always smiles in front of people to hide his sorrows, his burdens so just once I want him to releases it all
Imagine this like post-ROK and maybe it’s been a year since everything went down, the destruction of the Slate and the defeat of jungle, and by this point most of the casts’ powers have started to fade. It’s December and cold and Homra has some kind of remembrance thing for Totsuka and Mikoto that Yata goes to and the whole time he’s somber but he’s also trying to keep everyone’s spirits up, like they’re all alive and together and Mikoto and Totsuka would be proud of how the clan’s come together and all that. Plus he’s trying to support Anna and Kusanagi especially, the two who in some ways lost the most when Totsuka and Mikoto died and Yata’s really just trying his best to not burden anyone with his own sorrows. At the same time though he’s been a little depressed lately over the waning of his powers and the memorial just makes it worse, a reminder that this red that he stills sees as some remnant of Totsuka and Mikoto is going to be gone soon and all he’ll have to hold onto are Totsuka’s videos that he’s watched a million times, memories of a time long gone and warm place that he can’t ever get back.
So finally after the memorial Yata walks home alone in the snow, back to the apartment he shares with Fushimi. When he walks in Fushimi’s there on his computer, doing more paperwork for Scepter 4. He mentions that Yata’s late without really looking at him and Yata gives this strained smile as he apologizes and says he’ll start making dinner. Fushimi hears a strained note in Yata’s voice that makes him look up and he notes that Yata looks worn out. Yata tries to smile as he says yeah, something like that. Fushimi gets up and walks over, about to say something when Yata just grabs him and pulls him into a hug, bursting into tears. Fushimi I think just goes stock still, having no idea how to handle this as Yata just cries out all his strain and stress, hiccuping and apologizing and everything. Finally Fushimi just puts an awkward arm around Yata’s shoulders and pats his back, trying to do what he thinks Yata would do if Fushimi was upset and his movements are really unsure and stiff but Yata doesn’t mind because he knows Fushimi can’t handle emotion stuff but here he is trying, like Fushimi has no idea how to handle Yata’s crying other than to stand there and let Yata cry it all out. Finally Yata’s sobs slow down and he wipes his eyes, smiling at Fushimi and thanking him for being there and Fushimi looks away like ‘I didn’t do anything,’ Yata’s like ‘yeah you did, you’re alive and you’re here’ because after everything that’s all he needs, knowing that he’s got Fushimi by his side again.
