I remember really liking the outfits that some of the characters in anime wore but I wasn't actually aware that people dressed up as these characters until I came across some videos by Fighting Dreamers Pro and probably some other cosplayers when I was randomly browsing YouTube one day. I then started to look things up online and eventually discovered a convention in my area.

Title: The Watch
Author: xxotakuchiceexx SouChou
Pairing: TajiFumito (Tamamoto Fumito x Tajima Shogo)
A/N: Just another fanfic from AO3 that I'm reposting here~ This time it's Tasy and Fumito.
Taji re-entered the changing room that evening to find a frantic Fumito flitting around discontentedly, his brow knitted in worry. Taji was somewhat concerned; it was unusual to see his friend so unhinged. He looked at Fumito curiously.
“You coming? I’m about to leave; everyone else has already gone.” he said.
“Go on without me,” Fumito replied distradely, peering under a chair for what was probably the hundredth time.
“What are you looking for anyway?” Taji wanted to know. He took a few steps closer to Fumito, watching him pointedly.
“My watch,” Fumito answered, his voice growing increasingly troubled. “I took it off before rehearsals and now I can’t find it. It’s not in my bag or anywhere.”
“Oh, that’s too bad,” Taji said sympathetically but then he realized something. “Wait, you mean the watch I bought you?”
Taji had bought Fumito a watch for his birthday one year back when they were still in Johnny’s. It was dark purple in colour with one black hand and one white one. Fumito loved it and was never seen without it, which was a fact that made Taji feel quite pleased although he wasn’t exactly sure why.
Fumito nodded solemnly. “I’m sorry I lost it.”
Taji shrugged dismissively. “You’re seriously making a big deal about that? It wasn’t that expensive. You can buy a much better one yourself. Come on, let’s go.”
“No, you go. I really have to find it.” Fumito said, checking his bag again hopefully.
Taji thoughtfully watched the younger boy rummaging through his bag. He wasn’t sure what to make of this.
“Something I bought you really means that much to you?” Taji asked meekly after a short while.
Fumito paused to look up at Taji. “Of course. Whenever I look at that watch it reminds me of all we’ve been through together and it makes me want to do my best with you and everyone else.”
Taji felt a pang in his chest that he couldn’t explain. He smiled softly. “I had no idea.”
Fumito looked at Taji strangely for a moment before continuing to search his bag. Taji grabbed him by the wrist.
“It’s okay,” Taji said gently. “It might turn up tomorrow. If not, I’ll just buy you a new one. There’s no sense getting all worked up over it.”
Fumito nodded with a sigh. “You’re right. Let’s just go.”
Fumito was looking at Taji strangely again and Taji realized with a start that he was still holding onto the other boy’s wrist. He quickly let go and took a step back.
Fumito chuckled. “It’s okay. I don’t mind. If it’s you.”
Taji didn’t have much time to ponder over what that meant because Fumito was already swinging his bag over his shoulder and heading for the door. Taji jogged to keep up with him. He had a pressing urge to grab ahold of Fumito’s hand but he did his best to ignore it. They were almost down the corridor and out the door of the agency’s building when Fumito suddenly stopped in his tracks.
“My watch!” he beamed. “I must’ve dropped it. I guess I didn’t have it before rehearsals like I thought.” Fumito laughed and to Taji, it was a sweet and melodic sound. “What a relief.”
The watch sat on the floor near the doors, as if waiting for Fumito arrive. The other members must not have seen it as they’d left, Taji realized. Taji and Fumito both knelt down to pick it up at the same time but Taji got to it first.
“What are you doing?” Fumito asked, amused.
“Put out your wrist,” Taji instructed.
Fumito looked confused but did as he was told. Taji carefully slipped the device onto the other boy’s arm.
“Did you know I actually have magical powers?” Taji said with a playful grin. “I cast a spell just now. Now you’ll never lose the watch again.”
Fumito laughed. “I feel like you’re proposing to me.”
Taji felt heat rising to his cheeks. He turned away suddenly. “Let’s go now.”
“Okay,” Fumito chirped.
They’d only just gotten out of the doors though, when Taji felt a hand snake through his own. He jumped in surprise but couldn’t bring himself to let go.
“What are you doing?” Taji quizzed, looking down at his and Fumito’s intertwined hands.
“Holding your hand,” Fumito said simply.
“Well, I can see that,” Taji said. “But why?”
“Because I wondered what it would feel like,” Fumito explained. “And because I could tell you wanted to too.”
Taji let out a chuckle, unable to deny it. “But what if someone sees us? Like one of our fans.”
“Well then, they’ll probably take a picture and post it online and then people will write fanfiction about us,” Fumito said with a shrug. “Idol fans love this kind of stuff.”
Taji laughed properly this time. “True.”
“By the way, you have to take me to dinner tonight. Since you’re my boyfriend now.” Fumito said nonchalantly, as if he were talking about the weather.
“Wait, what? Boyfriend?” Taji cried, suddenly unable to form complete sentences.
Fumito just laughed. “I have expensive tastes, by the way. Don’t think you’ll get away with some cheap yakiniku place.”
