Has this been done before ?? Munakata and Totsuka switching bodies ?
I feel like they would both be far too amused and way too chill about
this situation than most everyone else, like they run into each other
just in time for the body switch Strain to attack and soon they’re
both staring at their new bodies all ‘oh, how interesting.’ I feel
like the two of them would have an interesting relationship anyway,
when they meet they’re both probably smiling a lot and making pointed
comments and Munakata’s making Totsuka sort of uncomfortable but he’s
not letting any of it show while Munakata keeps finding Totsuka oddly
intriguing and is trying to find out more about this person who holds
the Red King in check. They don’t get too far in measuring each other
up though when the Strain attacks and after that they actually bond a
little because well this is an interesting turn of events isn’t it.
Munakata retrieves his glasses and coat from Totsuka while Totsuka
has to get his camera and film his own body talking all formally like
the Blue King (also they can both manage their own sparkling which
makes them feel more comfortable in the new body).
So then they eventually decide to go back to their respective clans,
Mumakata has the foresight to send a message ahead so they know what
to expect but Totsuka just walks right on in to Homra. He probably
tries to play a little bit first, like Totsuka walks into Bar Homra
all ‘oya oya I see King is sleeping on the couch again’ while
everyone stares at him blankly wondering what the Blue King is doing
here. Mikoto figures it out pretty quick though and Totsuka pouts a
little because he was hoping King would play along a little longer.
Most of the other Homra guys find it weird to see the stuffy Blue
King being all loose and 'everything will be fine.’ Also imagine
Totsuka tries to play guitar and sing for everyone but instead of the
soothing tones of Kaji Yuuki he’s doing a Munakata-style poetry
reading version of Circle of Friends. I can see him imitating
Munakata a bunch towards Mikoto just for fun and Mikoto keeps giving
him this flat look because Totsuka-as-Munakata fake lecturing him is
actually not much better than real Munakata lecturing him.
Meanwhile over at Scepter 4 the one who’s having the most trouble
with the whole thing is probably Fushimi, who feels almost as if he’s
being double doted on by some unholy combination of Munakata and
Totsuka. I just see him making the most disgusted face every time
Munakata smiles at him with Totsuka’s face, sparkling proudly, and
Fushimi wonders if he can just take the rest of the day off. Munakata
still manages to be strangely intimidating even in Totsuka’s body –
maybe he can still use his King powers so at some point when he’s on
his way back to Scepter 4 some random guys attack him thinking he’s
Homra’s weak point only to be totally wrecked. Though Munakata finds
it unexpectedly difficult because afterward he’s a bit out of breath
and it makes him wonder again about this Totsuka Tatara, whose body
seems so unsuited for powers of any type and who even so has managed
to tame Suoh Mikoto.
