it was a nice and peaceful day in Bellwood for a change, though considering it wasn't the main stream universe's Bellwood that made a degree of sense.
In fact even as the main verse Ben sat across from his counterpart, enjoying the Mr.smoothies of universe 23 they could both relax as Seven-seven and Tetrax had decided to stay on earth and work as a team with 23, so were out patrolling.
"So, not that it's not awesome to see you from time to time..but usually you showing up means something about to go all fucky fucky...Sooo what brings you here?" 23 asked.
"things don't ALWAYS go bad when i show up!" Ben protested, huffing a little.
"Mmmhmmm..So you showed up and I get attacked by my future team mates..you show up and the Ben war..you show up and Mad Ben.." 23 said, counting off on his fingers.
"..Damn uh.. well I promise, no world ending stuff this time." Ben said, sweat dropping. "I uh.. ok so i told you I recently moved out and got my own place right?"
"And yet you haven't invited me back once." 23 said and blew a raspberry to show he wasn't really offended.
"eheheh well fact of the matter is I mightttta gone a little beyond my means and kinda sorta..I'm like a week from getting kicked out." Ben said, poking his fingers together sheepishly.
"Heh, and what, you want a place to crash?"
"welll more thinking maybe since I've been helping you and all that jazz, you could spot me a couple of grand to get me in the clear and stuff?" Ben asked hopefully.
"eh..I learned the hard way not to loan friends money Ben. it's why me and my Gwen aren't on speaking terms." 23 said, then took a big drink of his smoothie. "however, I AM willing to help you MAKE the money you need, and more."
"...Doing what?" Ben asked, confused. "Cuz gotta say, I've tried the retail thing back home and when you have to stop doing stock to fight alien invaders, you don't keep your job for long."
"Pffft as if I'd let you work retail! Nah man! You know I've leveraged my frame and endorsed a TON of things right? Part of how I'm rolling in dough? Well I got this one wanna be sponsor who I'm not big on the product, but they are offering a crazy amount of cash. I figure they'll settle for the Ben of anther universe, you do the gig, we split the money 50/50, and everybody wins." 23 said, taking out a note pad and a pen.
"Look uh, not to sound ungrateful, but if I'm the one doing the modeling or whatever, shouldn't I get more then half? and what are you writing down?" Ben asked.
"That's how much your half of the deal will be, and I think you'll find it more then fair." 23 said and smirked.
Ben frowned and picked up the piece of paper, looking down, then did a double take as his eyes went wide.
"Holy crap! what am i modeling off? Missiles?!" he asked, his voice going higher then normal.
"nah, no weapons of mass destruction in that sense.. though bet you'll still clear rooms." 23 said and gave a impish grin. "You'll be working for huggies."
After half a hour of back and forth, and Ben admitting he really didn't have a better option, the two took off, transforming into XCLER8 and Speedyquick instead of hailing a cab and made their way to the huggies headquarters.
since 23 was used to this sort of thing Ben mostly let him talk over the contract and tried not to get boarded out of his mind as they talked returns and profit margins, only tuning in when the executive they were talking to (who if Ben didn't know better, he'd swear was this universes version of Charmcaster) brought up diaper usage.
"Of course seeing your other self in our new line of Lil' stinkers would do wonders for our promotion of them, but if we could show them being used it would really help sell other points. we're taking photo shoots for magazine spreads and of course some tv and internet ad's. the more you and your client can promise us in terms of selling these diapers are for big babies who need to be put in their place, the more zero's we can add to your check." She said, smiling.
"Wait..as in..you know.." Ben interrupted before 23 could talk, and unable to say what he was thinking, and blushing badly, he make fart noises with his mouth.
"Heh, yes, we want you to go dooty in your diaper." Hope said, smirking and watching the two boys reactions.
"N-No way! I mean I'll wear them and crawl around and stuff, but I'm NOT taking a dump in diapers!" Ben huffed and crossed his arms, shaking his head and well, looking just perfect for the target audience.
"Maybe I should give you and your client a moment to talk this over. we can make a deal without the diaper usage but it's going to cut into the bottom line." Hope said and got up and left the room.
"Can you BE anymore of a brat?" 23 hissed at Ben.
"But..but..she wants me to-"
"Yes, I know. I was there. Look Ben, I'm putting my neck on the line for you here, if my other sponsors hear about what a crabby brat your being here, it could affect me. Also your the one who came to me for help, so wouldn't like crapping yourself in huggies and making a boat load of cash once be better then doing a bunch more commercials to make the same amount? And who the hell from your universe is gonna see you doing this anyways?" 23 asked.
"But I don't wanna poop in a diaper!" Ben whined and shook his head. "and you can't make me! so th-" he started to add, then suddenly he was yanked out of his chair and over 23's laps.
"W-what are you doing?! and when the hell did you get so strong!?"
"I've been working out since the mad Ben thing. and I'm gonna do what anyone does with a whinny brat.." 23 said and smirked, tugging down the back of Ben's pants. "I'm gonna spank you."
Yanking Ben's skid marked stained briefs up and giving the bigger boy a wedgie and exposing those cheeks, 23 paused.
"Last chance to be a good boy and let me handle this." he said.
"Y-You don't have the balls!" Ben cried out, his voice carrying.
"I gave you a chance." 23 said and shrugged, then brought down his hand on Ben's bubble butt over and over, turning the cheeks nice and red as Ben bawled like a baby.
Since the office wasn't sound proofed, and many people knew that both of the Ben's were in the office, it attracted A LOT of attention as the bigger Ben's voice filled the floor with the sounds of wails and there was the unmistakable sound of buns being tanned.
Hope smirked as she listened, feeling she had pegged the relationship between the two boys right, and waited till there was just the sound of the bigger Ben sobbing before going back into her office, and fighting back a chuckle as she saw the bigger boy in the corner, his pants in his chair and his undies still hiked up.
the boy had his nose to the corner and his hands on his head, and was whimpering and sobbing gently.
"I'm sorry for that, somebody needed a attuide adjustment." 23 said.
"oh don't be! I just wish we had recorded that! would of been perfect for the set up of a commercial!" Hope said and chuckled.
"well I can always spank him again." 23 offered, chuckling to as Ben whined loudly from the corner.
"So, may I assume that your both on board with widdle Benny making uh-ohs and tinkles in his diapers?" Hope asked.
"I dunno, Ben, are you ok with messing your diapers?" 23 asked.
"Y-Yes! No more spankies!" Ben cried out, his hands going from his head to covering his poor buns.
"i think that answers your question."
"excellent, then I'll draw up the contract, and if we hurry we can have Ben in the studio in about 2 hours. Make sure he gets LOTS to eat, we wanna show off how the Lil' stinkers hold up to even the biggest messes." Hope said.
as 23 and Hope chuckled, Ben whimpered and found himself sucking on his thumb having ALL the regrets.
a hour and half later and a semi pot belly Ben was leaning back in his folding chair, in front of the set and belching off and on.
He still hadn't been able to reclaim his pants though he'd been allowed to tug the wedgie out at least, though this just got loads of comments about how diapers might be a good full time choice for him.
Ben had swallowed back any come backs or threats he had in mind as every time 23 was quick to pat his still sore booty.
going on Hope's advice 23 had forced Ben to chow down, though while the catering table was set up with all sorts of awesome snack foods, including Ben's favorite, chilli fries, it was the large pyramid of at least 23 jar's of prune baby food that 23 had directed Ben to, helping the bigger boy and spoon feeding him as the crew setting up the large nursery chuckled.
"Come on ben, one jar to go. you can do it." 23 was saying, grabbing the last jar and smirking at Ben's baby food covered face.
"D-Dude..I'm not joking..if I eat one more bite I'ma hurl." Ben whined.
"that's what you said two jars ago."
"by all means, call my bluff, just when your wearing baby food on your shoes, remember i warned you." Ben said with a weak smile then a LOUD and nasty belch.
23 made a face and waved the air in front of him.
"Man, if it smells that bad now.. Maybe i should excuse myself to the other room when you crap yourself." he teased.
"N-no way..if I'm doing this..you're watching AND smelling!" Ben whined and Belched again. "Can i get something to drink?" he asked.
instantly he realized he should of worded his request better as 23 got a large baby bottle filled with what was hopefully milk, and popped it in Ben's mouth.
it only took a few sucks on the nipple to realize that of course, it was formula, and Ben scuched up his face.
"Hehehe I have to say Ben, you are JUST too cute like this. I might have to try and lock you into a long term agreement here." 23 teased then winced at the glare Ben gave him.
pushing the bottle out of his mouth, Ben went to say something but was cut off as Hope strolled onto the set.
"Ok people, time to make some magic. baby Ben, we need you in wardore." she said then pasued. "Oh, Do you know how to put a diaper on?" she asked, suddenly looking sheepish.
"N-No." ben whined and a loud toot came out his bottom.
"Oh er..I don't think we have time to teach you before you unload." Hope said, holding her nose.
"it's ok, I'll diaper the big baby." 23 said happily.
"of course you will." Ben muttered, but let himself be lead off to a side room where there was star on the door, with his name on it.
"great...I'm about to become famous as a diaper boy.." Ben whined.
lead inside 23 just chuckled.
"Mr.Devil, he's ready for his close up."
The diaper was MASSIVE, and for a second both boys just stared at it, wondering if Ben was gonna be able to even walk in the thing.
it was easily the equal to 10 normal diapers layered together and was a soft baby blue (whether that was a marketing choice or just when they had been making these things expect 23 to model them, neither boy was sure)
anther loud toot from Ben's back door which sadly filled the small dressing room had both boys holding their noses, and broke them out of their trance.
"I..I don't wanna do this. I'm scared." Ben whined, looking at 23 with pleading eyes and starting to squirm in a way that told him their deadline was coming up fast.
"Sorry buddy, we signed the contract. but I'll make sure this goes as fast as possible. all you have to do with whimper and cry, and act like you've been acting, and I'll be doing the voice over." 23 said and reached up, patting Ben's head.
Ben whined but let himself be laid down on the teddy bear print changing mat on the floor and just lifted his arms to let 23 tug his shirt off.
"we're gonna have to enroll you in a exercise program if we need to keep feeding you like this." 23 teased, noting that while Ben wasn't chubby, he had enough pudge on him to look a bit like baby fat, and the baby food in his tummy wasn't helping.
Sliding Ben's undies off 23 tossed them in a trash can behind him, then unfolded the massive diaper as Ben whined.
"W-why'd you toss out my undies? A-and were are my pants? F-For after?" he asked, feeling so small and helpless as 23 lifted Ben up but his legs to get the diaper under him.
"hush, you let me worry about that..though..heh.." 23 paused the look down at Ben's exposed crotch. "Didn't know you shave."
"I uh..haven't gotten my pubes yet.." the bigger in so many ways, but not where it counted boy said.
"well that explains your cute widdl-"
"Watch it!" Ben huffed and for the first time moved to use his Omimatrix.
"Ok ok..Sorry." 23 said sweat dropping.
"I've had THREE girls interested in me by the way, so it can't be THAT small!" Ben added and 23 smirked and powdered him lots.
"And how many of them saw you down there?" 23 asked, as he tugged the diaper up. "and of those that saw, how many stayed interested?"
with the diaper tapped up Ben sat up with a bit of effort, but was blushing and wouldn't look 23 in the eyes.
"L-Let's just get this over with." Ben huffed and tried to get up on his own, only to keep falling back on his puffy butt.
"That's what I thought." 23 chuckled and then held out his hands, Helping Ben get to his feet.
the bigger boys BIG diaper had his legs spread and Ben was barley able to waddle, several times needing to stop and take 23's hands as they made their way out onto the set.
'If i make it though this I'm moving to a smaller apartment so i never have to ask this son of a bitch for a favor again.' Ben thought.
Hope grinned ear to ear and had some of the photographers snap shots of Ben needing help with walking, before coming over with a baby blue bonnet and bib that had white text in comic sans, that read BRAT.
Ben would of argued about the add ons, since he was pretty sure that hadn't been in the original deal, if it wasn't for the fact he was using every ounce of control NOT to mess himself too soon and have to start all over.
"There we go, don't you just look adorable~" Hope teased and tickled Ben's chin.
"A-Ah.S-Stop that..w-we hafa hurry up..I..I can't.." Ben whined and rubbed his tummy, a muffled fart coming out and making hope take a step back.
As they started to film, Ben for the most part blissfully blacked out, but of course got to watch the commercial after, with everyone praising him on what a good boy he had been.
"Hey everyone, Ben 23 here, and bringing you yet anther great product. So, brats, we all know one and we've all thought about putting them in their place, but where do you even start to get what you need for it?" Came 23's voice, on a screen of black.
"Well the answer for that, Is huggies. That's right, the same company you've been trusting to look after your little bundles of joy is here to help you put those same bundles of joy turned into over sized brats back into little baby's."
the screen came into focus and there was Ben, a glazed look in his eyes and holding his tummy, in all his big baby glory.
"Most of you know about my other universe counterpart, but what you don't know is that he's a grade A BRAT. as a favor to his friends back in his verse, we're giving Baby Ben the punishment he deserves. isn't that right baby ben?" 23's voice asked as Ben whined and pouted.
"Pwease, no wanna go poopies! I'm sowwy!" Ben cried out.
"now now Ben, you don't want anther spanking do you?" 23's voice asked, and it was the yelp of fear that sold it as Ben totally lost control.
the camera zoomed in as the back of Ben's diaper rapidly started to expand, and loud gross farts were heard. Ben for his part was face down ass up, and pounding a fist on the floor as he filled his diapers, crying and howling but really, it only made the shot better.
"Lil stinkers is made with a new material that allows for up to 40 times the normal amounts of waste, which means even with 22 jars of baby food in baby Ben's tummy these diapers won't leak, or your money back." 23 said.
the diaper only started to take on a dirty stain of brown in the back as the material reached down to Ben's knees.
"with our new smell block guards in the diaper, you'll only get the faintest whiff of the the mess the big babies made. Sure it spares the brat but if your brat is anything widdle Benny here, you're gonna be punished enough changing him."
with a few last sputtering farts Ben was apparently finished and sucking on his thumb as he got up on his knees, looking to the cameras.
"C-Change pwease?" Ben whined.
"Oh silly Ben, if we just changed you right away, where would the fun be in that? with added rash protection built into the diaper, along with bratty baby brand powder, Our little Benny can go 12 hours without a change!"
hearing that Ben bawled again, both hands coming up to his eyes and there was just no two ways about it, he looked like a giant baby.
"See you in 12 hours little guy! enjoy your poopie diaper." 23 said cheerfully.
Ben's cries were muted as they went to the last of it.
"Lil stinkers by huggies. put your brat back in diapers, and in their place. Available at a super market near you in two weeks."
Ben naturally wasn't actually kept in the poopie diaper for 12 hours, though they did take the chance to get all the pictures they needed for him in his poopie diapers, with 23 posing in some of them with him.
Such as having Ben in his arms, Ben over his lap and pretending to give him a messy spanking, and of course 23 pulling the back of the diaper open as Ben sat on his ass, hugging a teddy bear and sucking on a pacifier and 23 holding his nose.
If 23 was being truthfully though he was glad he was wearing his baggy pants as the site of Ben like this almost had little hearts in his eyes and he was tempted to try and keep Ben like this.
Still a contract was a contract, and once they had enough footage they got Ben changed into a clean diaper but out of the bib and bonnet, and with his t-shirt back on.
Ben was actually in the crib that was part of the set up when he came out of it, the staff and Hope and 23 where having a few drinks.
"C-Can somebody come let me out? And.. get me big boy undies and pants?" Ben called, using the crib railing to haul himself to his feet but swaying dangerously if he let go, so knowing he couldn't get out.
if the crew heard him, they ignored him and kept talking among themselves and laughing, annoying Ben.
"I SAID, SOMEBODY LET ME OUT!" Ben yelled and stomped a foot, slipping and falling on his padded rear.
"oh great, the baby is awake." 23 said, smirking and winking to the crew who all laughed.
"Your not freaking funny! Let me outta here NOW or I'm going way big!" Ben growled and started to fiddle with his watch.
"Way big?" a crew member asked. "as in he's gonna be a big boy?"
"No! as in the alien who's 100 feet tall!" Ben huffed and got the watch ready to go.
"-sigh- I'll handle this." 23 said and walked over, holding his hands up. "heyy heyy..it's OK Benny. we don't need to bring aliens into this. you're all done here and we'll cash your check at the first bank of Ben then you can go home. OK?"
"i want outta this diaper, I want outta this crib! and i want big boy undies and pants!" Ben huffed, keeping his hand over his watch.
"heh, your terms are agreeable. we only re-diapered you because you were out of it, and I don't really wanna change anther poopie diaper." 23 lied.
He would of totally loved to keep changing Ben's diapers but clearly the little guy had been pushed to his limit.
As it turned out they couldn't find pants in the studio for Ben, or a pair of undies so the poor hero ended up standing in line with 23 at the bank in his t-shirt and diapers, which normally would of caused problems but with 23's technically owning the bank, it was brushed over.
The first thing they did after getting the check cashed was go shopping and get Ben a pair of sumo slammer boxers, then off to the food court for him to get the taste of the baby food and formula out of his system, though he wasn't able to eat his full order.
23 joked about how they should of gotten him a happy meal as he wiped up the chilli stains off of Ben's face.
after that it was time to go home and Ben gave 23's hand a shake.
"..ok, you saved my ass from having to move back home..buttt don't expect me to come back here till this ad campaign is over and done." Ben said.
"heh, come on, didn't a SMALL part of you have fun?" 23 asked.
"hahahaha NO. Today was the most horrible day of my life, and with the shit I've been though, thats saying something. Maybe you can come over to MY universe sometime and be a diaper boy for me though."
"heh. or just show up with a diaper bag."
with that Ben went back to his home universe, very much richer.
Or so he thought.
as it turned out their money while looking the same on the outside, was made differently and raised all sorts of flags when Ben went to go and deposit it in his universe.
there was a public cry of outrage that a hero like Ben would try and destabilize a local economy like that, and there was talks of official charges of counterfeiting and maybe even jail time.
Not even able to get his cash back, and the Plumbers having to give him the cold shoulder publicly to save face, Ben decided to take a little bit of a vacation (2-7 months while the plumbers legal team got him out of the mess) back in universe 23, figuring that 23 owned him, AND wanting to give him a piece of his mind.
"baby Ben! back so soon?" 23 asked, delighted as a red faced Ben made it to his pent house.
on the way over Ben had been recognized, teased and scolded for not being in his diapers and had seen billboard with him in all his blacked out diaper baby glory.
"ha.Ha. we have a problem." Ben said, and then nodded to 23's couch. "mind if I take a seat?"
"Only if you promise not to make a puddle." 23 joked, but moved aside as Ben came in and flopped down.
Ben spent the next 10 minutes explaining out what had happened, as 23 looked upset and shook his head.
"Man, that sucks. I'm sorry, i didn't know!" 23 said.
"well, I need a place to stay for a little while till i get the OK to go back..so I was wondering if y-"
"would put you up here for a few months, heh,. that can be arranged. don't think you'll be able to get a place on your own here unless you just did more commercials though, rent in the city has gone up since i live here."
"Not like i have a penny to my name anyways, and was gonna ask if you'd rent me a place..Buttt staying here I guess won't be so bad." Ben said with a little smile.
"there is a small price I'd like you to pay..But in return for humoring me on this onnnne tiny little thing, I swear you'll want for nothing while staying with me. all the junk food you could want and any video games, the whole nine yards." 23 said, blushing a little now.
"..why am i getting a bad feeling about this?" Ben asked.
"well see.. they didn't need the stuff they used in your commercial after you left..so they gave it to me for free..and you were just SO god damn cute.." 23 said, getting up and leading Ben to yup, a recreation of the nursery from the set.
"oh come on Ben! i promise! no baby food this time and pop in your baby bottles! Pleasssse?" 23 asked, bringing his hands together.
"why in the world would i agree to do that for a few months? I could just go do anther commercial, then get my own place here!?" Ben pointed out.
"one, because as your agent I control whether you do anther shoot, it's actually part of the contract, two, if I tell my bank not to cash your check who else do you think will cover that much. three, and this is the kicker. where else can you go to with ease to hide out? you really think mad Ben is gonna welcome you with open arms?"
"..Fuck my life!"
And so one week after promising himself he'd never be a big baby again, Ben found himself in two of the thick blue diaper's and in a t-shirt top, crawling behind behind 23 and pouting like crazy.
"Don't you think top is over kill?" Ben whined.
"I'm the one paying for them. so just shush and look adorable."
"Not funny." Ben pouted and then realized it would be harder then hell to get off and on the couch's and just sat on his diaper butt in the living room.
"So what d-"
"I want chilli cheese fires, I want a two liter of coke, and I want the latest sumo slammer game five minutes ago!" Ben huffed then grinned.
"..Demanding aren't we?"
"and i quote: I swear you'll want for nothing. I want all of that." Ben said smugly.
"you know, i could of just spanked you." 23 teased, going to grab the phone and make the food order.
instead of Ben telling him off however, the threat had a amusing and smelly effect instead.
Ben froze at the memory of that and then well, with him being double diapered it was a little hard to tell since there was no smell, but 23 could of sworn Ben just got a little taller.
"heh, Did somebody just make me a present?"
"Good boy. I'll change you after you eat, if your a good boy." 23 said and winked.
"...this is gonna be a long 2 months."
