What makes you think Nagisa's love for Rei is different from his love for Makoto and Haru?

Nice question! Nagisa is generally a very loving person and cares deeply about those around him, but I do think his love for Rei is a bit different (personally) because of the depth of his relationship with Rei. While he grew up with Haru and Makoto, his love for Rei was a sudden, strong attraction that developed into a deep relationship where his focus is nearly always concentrated on Rei, he constantly desires Rei’s attention and doting, and he is particuarly protective of Rei. 

Sudden Attraction

While Nagisa has always admired Haru and Makoto, his interest in Rei was sudden and so strong that he was relentless in his approach to Rei. He is overwhelmed with joy when Rei reciprocates his interest, too:

So it was very fast and strong, which suggests to me (albeit in a shipper lens) that there is a certain level of attraction involved on Nagisa’s part in these initial interactions, before he really knows Rei as a person. 

Focused on Rei

As their friendship develops, Nagisa’s time, energy, attention span, gaze, thoughts, and jokes are all nearly directed at Rei. While it could be interpreted as a strong friendship, the kind of devoted attention he gives to Rei, as though he is unable to concentrate on anything else nor wants to, can be interpreted as romantic intrigue. 

For better or for worse on Rei’s part, his attentions - kind, teasing, or otherwise - are directed almost entirely at Rei. This is why he is able to read Rei so easily at all times…

…is miserable when he doesn’t get attention back…

…and is almost always bickering with Rei in the background or spending any free moment around Rei. 

And Nagisa loves attention from Rei, too, because he loves to get a rise out of him, one way or another, just to have that attention directed at him. 

And he takes care of Rei more than anyone else…and relies on Rei more than anyone else

And, of course, this. Because Nagisa is so attentive to Rei, he is also more protective of and worried about Rei than anyone else. He always looks out for and checks in with his friends, wanting them all to get along, but Rei is arguably the only friend he is, on a second-to-second basis, making sure is 100% ok. 

Not just jumping in front of him or taking the brunt of awkward situations…

…but also always checking in to make sure he is ok…

…and caring about his progress and feelings more than anyone else

And, of course, he depends on Rei, too, more than the others. He has a special need for Rei’s help, assurance, and protection as well. He relies on him in a different way than he does the other boys. 

To keep him balanced

Out of trouble…

And for someone to study with, eat ice cream with, shoulder to sleep on, first person to call…etc. Their relationship is, undoubtedly, special and different, even if it’s not proven to be romantic. 

And this is just a few things from the anime, let alone the incessant flirting in the drama CDs. Nagisa dressing as a girl to flirt with Rei…Nagisa going on a date with Rei to karaoke…falling asleep on Rei and dreaming about him…and always supporting and choosing Rei’s happiness, as seen in the mook…etc. 

Beware of Ren (meirenka, moerenren, catbuttoverload, ShikiRen96, reiaruu)

Currently moerenren @ DA and Meirenka @ FB

She has:

1. Hosted multiple “Draw my OCs/OTPs” contests and swindled a LOT of free arts, but never announced winners or gave out prizes. She deleted her old account to remove evidences but entries to these contest are still floating around in DA.

Entry samples: 1 2 3

2. Opened commissions in which she demands commissioners pay first before she works on the art. She deleted her old account to escape with the already payments without finishing the works. She also keeps posting adopts and personal project comics while neglecting her commissioners’ notes. She does the same with Art trades that are left hanging for years

3. Sold an adopt to Captain-Kiryu @ DA who then posted a doodle of the adopt with a modified color palette. Meirenka got angry at CK and demanded she return the adopt and be refunded with CK agreed to. Meirenka then reuploaded the adopt to be resold WITHOUT refunding CK first. When confronted about this, she only replied that CK will only get the refund if and when the adopt gets bought again. Now, she wiped out her dA gallery along with that adopt and so it can’t even be bought, CK still hasn’t gotten her money back.

4. attempted to sell an OC owned by another artist who only agreed to let her draw her OC as a model for her new “original species”.

This FB post lists other acts committed by Meirenka

Be careful in commissioning, buying adopts from, and accepting art trades with Meirenka.

You probably know by now that Cuteosphere / Dragondicks also goes by the name of Candygorefuck, and how she lives to draw guro, rape and hard vore. Turns out she also liked drawing clop, imgur,com/Ei2M7C1,png A quick google search of that alias of hers turns up some really interesting facts about her, like how she /still/ hasn't sent out the shirts people paid for, or her rape and gore fetishes.

Given the low standard of evidence accepted by most atheists, it’s strange the religious people don’t try providing some.

And yet, all we get is pseudo-cosmological arguments which demonstrate a lack of understanding of cosmology, or pained philosophical gibberish that was comprehensively demolished three centuries ago. 

For one thing leads to another.
Soon you will notice how stones shine underfoot.
Eventually tides will be the only calendar you believe in.

And someone’s face, whom you love, will be as a star
both intimate and ultimate,
and you will be both heart-shaken and respectful.

And you will hear the air itself, like a beloved, whisper:
oh, let me, for a while longer, enter the two
beautiful bodies of your lungs.

Mary Oliver, from section 2 of “To Begin With, the Sweet Grass,” Evidence: Poems (Beacon Press, 2009)

A careful reading of older texts, particularly those concerned with the universe itself, shows that the authors invoke divinity only when they reach the boundaries of their understanding. They appeal to a higher power only when staring into the ocean of their own ignorance. They call on God only from the lonely and precarious edge of incomprehension.
—  Neil deGrasse Tyson

Police uncovering the knife that was allegedly used in the West Memphis 3 murders, according to the prosecution. The prosecution alleged that the knife had been used to carry out extensive mutilation (which would later be attributed to post-mortem animal predation). Despite the fact that the knife was found in the vicinity of Jason Baldwin, one of the defendant’s homes, there was no evidence tying the knife to the defendant’s, or any evidence it had been involved in the crime at all. In 2008 it was revealed that the knife had been thrown into the lake before the murders even occurred. This knife played a key role in the murder convictions of Damien Echol’s and Jason Baldwin.
