Look at this, look at her, she thought she’d lost him forever, and the sigh of relief when he came back alive, it was like things can still be fine. They just have to get through this and she’s so ready to do whatever it takes

I’ve seen several posts drifting around about why Sousuke puts extra emphasis on the line, “Rin, your friend!” and I just wanted to clarify some things that might have been lost in translation.
I mentioned in another post that it’s because given the context, yes, the line translates to “Rin, your friend,” but what Sousuke was really saying was “Rin, with you” (Rin, omae to), and this speaks so much more to me since the Japanese language is all about subtleties and double meanings.
Sousuke is not only saying that he wants to become true friends with Rin, but he’s also saying that he wants to be WITH Rin. He’s also expressing the fact that he wants Rin by his side, and even if this is the last time they’ll be able to be together, to swim together, he still wants this because Rin means so much to him. He wants Rin to be a part of his life and he wants to be a part of Rin’s.
The way he delivers the line is so heartbreaking (kudos to Hosoyan and his beautiful voice) because it can be interpreted in several different ways, and Sousuke really just wants so much more that he thinks he will never be able to have, perhaps a future with Rin, a future where he will be on the same stage as Rin, a future where they could be together, even though he couldn’t be more wrong.
So we’re always going on about how badass it is that Neville pulled the Sword of Gryffindor out of the sorting hat, but I just read the part where Ron saves Harry from the frozen lake, and Ron is the one who pulls the sword out of the water. This may seem like an obvious fact like, So what if he did? But remember that being able to retrieve the Sword of Gryffindor is a very prestigious privilege. Not just anyone could have pulled it out of the lake.
ONLY A TRUE GRYFFINDOR
IT WASN’T JUST HARRY AND NEVILLE WHO COULD RETRIEVE THE SWORD OF GRYFFINDOR RON COULD TOO
When we worked here together, we fought, scratched, and clawed to make people’s lives a tiny bit better. That’s what public service is all about: small, incremental change every day. Teddy Roosevelt once said ‘Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is a chance to work hard at work worth doing.’ And I would add that what makes work worth doing is getting to do it with people that you love. I started my career more than thirty years ago in the Parks and Recreation department right here in Pawnee, Indiana. I had a lot of different jobs, including two terms as your governor. And soon, a new, unknown challenge awaits me which to me, even now, is thrilling because I love the work. Not to say that public service isn’t sexy because it definitely is, but that’s not why we do it. We do it because we get the chance to work hard at work worth doing, alongside a team of people who we love. So I thank those people who walked with me and I thank you for this honor. Now, go find your team and get to work
