I cannot even put into words how many emotions this story makes me feel. It’s so sad and sweet and cute and just plain heartbreaking. It shows us how much of a monster Gothel really was, but it also shows just how strong Eugene and Rapunzel’s bond is. This is how you OTP.

Im so glad no one was home when I read this because I was just sobbing and giggling like an idiot.

Look at this majestic heartbreaker! He looks so carefree and happy!

Under the assumption that most people usually avoid the cause of their pain and despair, and considering the difficult times he had in Australia, I always thought that Rin wasn’t too keen to be associated and reminded of Australia again. But boy was I wrong!

I loved ep 12 and it really hit home for me. Literally. To see these boys in your hometown with all kinds of familiar scenery so beautifully animated is the most surreal but wonderful experience. But what I loved most, was Rin. He is by far the most gentle, sincere, open, caring and supportive in this episode, and he is all these wonderful things in a place that should remind him of his pain and failures. But instead, he’s come out even stronger, better and faster than all of that. He’s overcome his demons and he’s absolutely determined to succeed this time. We really get to see how far he’s come along. People can complain about his development and character all they want, but I am nothing but proud of this boy. My heart is overflowing with love for Rin.

Oh and hopeful baby Rinrin trying to speak english is gold, pure gold. It will brighten up the darkest of my days, I’m sure of it!

the sky through my window is the same blue as your eyes the last time i saw you and i’ve tried hanging up fairy lights to keep away the darkness but it turns out you lose a lot more than magic when your heart breaks into halves it turns out you can also lose your mind good god but i think i’m still fucked up over you and i have no goddamn right

THIS SCENE MEANT THE WORLD TO ME.

JUST LET ME TALK PLEASE I CAN’T DEAL WITH THIS.

For ages now Haru as said that he ‘only swims free’, this becoming his catchphrase in the first season, meaning it to be ‘freestyle’, because that is the only swim he does for tournaments. He only swims freestyle, because it’s his favourite is what he all thought, and he was stubborn when it came to other styles.

The trouble with him finding his dream, was absolutely HEARTBREAKING. It was horrible to watch, for all of us I assume, and the hurt that he felt during fighting with Makoto was terrible. Not to mention, it was his first fight.

BUT IN THIS SCENE,

HARU’S WORDS FINALLY MAKE SENSE.

He just wants to be free, and episode 9’s scene with the things wrapping around him and holding him shown him unable to be ‘free’, constricting him from swimming, because he knew that he had no idea why he was swimming. Except, for his friends.

Here, when Rin takes Haru to Australia and shows him all the sights to see, and finally brings him here, and is offered to swim against the national teams, Haru takes up the opportunity.

And when he stands up on the board, he pauses.

HE FEELS IT.

HE SEES THE CROWD, SEE’S THE PEOPLE CHEERING FOR HIM, AND SEES ALL THE HAPPY FACES WATCHING HIM — INCLUDING RIN’S.

HE FINALLY UNDERSTANDS.

And as he launches from the platform, HE FINALLY BECOMES FREE.

THE WINGS REPRESENT HIM TAKING OFF INTO HIS NEW FREEDOM, HIS NEW DREAM!

SO THE TERM ‘I only swim free’, MEANS EVERYTHING TO ME. HARU SWIMS AGAIN, AND ONLY DIVES INTO THE WATER TO SWIM BECAUSE HE’S FOUND HIS DREAM.

He’s found it.

He’s FREE.

#SPN10 countdown challenge | day 20 - episode 20 season 4
Jimmy Novak

This is a heartbreaking story. In this episode, we learn about Castiel’s vessel and just how traumatising the experience has been for him. I can only imagine how much he’s suffered since then.

It was a hard choice! In S04E20, we also see Bobby and Dean locking Sam up in the saferoom for his own good after his blood addiction. In S05E20, the nickname ‘moose’ is used by Crowley for the first time. In S06E20, Castiel and Crowley have a tiny domestic while they work together. In S07E20, we meet Charlie, and in S08E20 we learn about Charlie’s mother. The 20s are all pretty good! In the end, I chose Jimmy’s story.

———————————————————-

The rest of the challenge is found here.

So I will wait for you. I will wait one day, one week, 7 months, 3 years, hell even a decade. I will wait for you even if you don’t remember my name or the colour of my eyes. I will wait for you even if you claim to not love me anymore. I will try and make you fall in love again. You’re worth all the effort. I will wait for you even if it kills me because I will never ever find a love that burned as bright as ours. I will wait for you, my love. Take your time.
—  i will wait // 11:32 pm
If you’re madly in love and you’re treated well, don’t you ever once take it for granted. Don’t you ever once not think you’re lucky because the very second you start to take it for granted is the very second you start to lose it. I think the only way to keep what you have is to know what you have.
—  I wish I’d known what I had because now I’m just miserable
