ritsu and love
ritsu is 100% done with the painful, but obvious stench of love in the air. everywhere he goes he can’t avoid it. his peers can’t get their act together and confess their love and ritsu wants out for a good whole six months
-it starts in the student council. he hadn’t seen it coming. tokugawa and shinji are so in sync these days and they talk with their eyes and only their eyes. no one has a clue what’s going on cause ritsu clearly wasn’t invited into their special eye flirting world
-could inukawa and takenaka be anymore obvious? do they have to send telepathic sweet nothing across the hall? can’t they just find a bench far away from ritsu and cuddle?
-ritsu wonders how long rei kurosaki and tome will stutter around each other. he’d time it but he doesn’t really care
-it starts after school. mob doesn’t see how romantic his afterschool walks home with teru have become. they hold hands because hanazawa claims he wants test his pryokinesis at a small scale. but then mob dares ask ritsu if he wants to join them and ritsu declines because he is not third-wheeling today. tho it’s tempting cause hanazawa makes this face of please let me woo him i’ll go slow and you’ll just be in the way and three’s a crowd by the way
-never again will ritsu be interviewed by ichi for the secrets to his studying success if tsubomi’s interviewed too because ichi just has to fixate all attention on tsubomi for a whole fifteen minutes. worse, tsubomi just has to play footsie with ichi under the table. frankly, this is an interview. not a date. and ritsu has better things to do
-what irritates ritsu the most is when he sees dumb, romantic quotes shou keeps posting on the Internet because shou is hinting at being in love but he’s all tight-lipped and joking around when ritsu asks. it’s infuriating because ritsu badly needs to know for reasons. it keeps him up at night. the only clue shou gives him is: too smart for his own good, grumpy but hot, extremely grumpy but wise, his hair doesn't know gravity, but yeah he’s grumpy all right.
