Rin Okumura Discovering He’s Attracted to a Male! 

(Request! And something I haven’t done before so I hope I do this justice!) 

  • it started out that he just liked hanging out with this guy
  • nothing more
  • or so he’d thought
  • they, of course, became good friends
  • they spent a lot of time together
  • and Rin really really liked being around him
  • he didn’t think there was anything else to it
  • he always wanted his friend to be happy
  • and whenever his friend was sad or hurting - he was hurting for them too
  • if anyone said anything negative about the guy in front of Rin - he’d practically go ballistic! 
  • (not flames and shit, just - a lot of yelling) 
  • Rin just thought that he was protective of all his friends like this
  • it took a flippant comment from Ryuuji or Yukio to cause Rin to realize that this might be different
  • he only ever wanted to spend time with this guy
  • he didn’t want anyone to get between the two of them
  • he wanted to make him happy
  • he…wanted him
  • Rin thought long and hard about this for days
  • he realized that he had always liked how the guy looked
  • how he smelt
  • how he spoke
  • he liked him
  • and more than just a friend
  • and it scared Rin
  • what if he loses his friend because of this revelation?
  • who could he talk to about this?
  • who would understand him?
  • what would his father say?
  • so Rin started avoiding this guy 
  • didn’t answer calls or texts 
  • wouldn’t find him between classes
  • and it hurt
  • but he thought this was the best way to handle this
  • and it wasn’t
  • Finally Yukio couldn’t stand it anymore - all the moping and the hiding and the sneaking about between classes
  • so he did what any good brother would do - which was sit down to talk with Rin 
  • “Tell me what’s going on. You’ve been avoiding Y/N for days now. He’s worried sick thinking he’s done something wrong and you’re hurting by doing this to him - I can tell. Spill.”
  • Rin, at first, denied the whole thing
  • but Yukio didn’t take no for an answer
  • he didn’t push either
  • he just let Rin rant and rave until finally…the truth came out
  • “…How am I supposed to expect for him to have feelings for me too?! How am I supposed to explain that to him?! What the fuck is wrong with me?!” 
  • “Nothing’s wrong with you Nii-san - you have feelings for Y/N - there’s nothing wrong with that.” 
  • “Nothing wrong with that?! How can you say that?!” 
  • “Rin - dad wouldn’t be upset with you.” 
  • that got his attention 
  • /and it made him sit down/
  • “Dad wouldn’t care if you liked men or if you liked women or if you liked both or neither - he loved you. He loves you. He only ever wanted us to be happy. Everything he did - he did for us. And besides that, its healthy to explore these things when they arise - there’s nothing wrong with a man dating a man or a woman dating a woman. If I came to you and told you I had a boyfriend - you wouldn’t care. I know you wouldn’t - so why did you think I would care? You’re my brother - and I want what’s best for you. And what’s best for you - is what makes you happy. Y/N makes you happy Rin…don’t lose him because you’re afraid. Tell him. There’s only two responses you can get from him - one is for him to agree to date you and the other is a refusal to date you. And if he refuses - I’ll take you out to get sukiyaki and we’ll move on. It’ll be that simple - I promise.” 
  • “What if he refuses and he never wants to see me again?”
  • “Then that’s his loss - cause you’re a good man Rin. Anyone would be lucky to have you - male or female.” 
  • the two hugged it out for once and headed to bed
  • the next day - Rin finally approached Y/N 
  • convinced him that he needed him to skip class - that there was something important he needed to tell him 
  • so the two left school 
  • and sat by the river with a couple of sandwiches - but Rin was still so quiet 
  • Y/N didn’t push - just waited nervously 
  • and Rin confessed 
  • confessed to everything 
  • he spoke and explained and his hands shook and he couldn’t meet Y/N’s gaze 
  • and once he was finished there was silence
  • deafening silence
  • and Rin thought it was game over 
  • but then Y/N laughed
  • a relieved laugh 
  • and when Rin looked over to him - Y/N almost knocked him over with the force of the hug 
  • and it was Y/N’s turn to confess 
  • and Rin was so relieved 
  • and so happy 
  • all he could do was hold onto Y/N
how to build a sentence!!

i was taught back in freshman year of high school that there are two ways you can structure a sentence. for example:

american sign language(ASL)

TIME+SUBJECT+VERB+OBJECT

this structure is commonly called glossing.

say i pick a sentence from a song 

“i just cant stop loving you.”

by glossing, you have a reorganized sentence.

“I NOT STOP LOVE YOU”

there is also active and passive signing.

if the subject is your topic , you are using an active voice.

“I EAT CANDY”

if the object is your topic you are using a passive voice.

“CANDY, I EAT”

fun fact- a lot of people tend to use an active voice because of how similar it is to English grammar.

a topicalized sentence is using the object of the sentence as the topic and introducing it as a “yes/no question expression” ending with a comment.

1. topicalized

“YOUR CANDY? I EAT YESTERDAY”

your candy is the topic and the sentence is in object-verb-subject word order.

 2.Non-topicalized

“ I ate YOUR CANDY YESTERDAY”

woahhh kaylee, you made an error. why is ate not capitalized but the rest of the sentence is?

well first off, i didn’t make an error. second, words that have a sign for them such as “SOUR” are in caps. words without a sign such as “of, ate,ran,” can be finger spelled but then you'd be using SEE instead of ASL. there aren’t past tense words, that’s why you say what time of day it is!! “YESTERDAY, I RUN” or “I RUN YESTERDAY”.

either way is fine.


vs

signing exact english

that is exactly what it sounds like. SEE is based on signs drawn from asl but is expanded using words that give a complete visual representation. “the girl had soft, silky hair.”

thats all i can think of atm so if you have anything else on asl and see let me know/add on. i might add on a bit later tho after i go shower brb
