Request please. Your Free burp headcanon made me think of Sousuke and Makoto going on a first date where Makoto gets horribly burpy and bashful and Sousuke doesn't get his major shyness but thinks he's in pain. Makoto worries he's ruined their first date but just doesn't know Sou is stoic and chill?

  • so makoto has a few certain foods that really mess his stomach up. it’s mostly when he eats rich stuff; he gets super bloated, super burpy, and is never able to hold them down.
  • he knows this perfectly well. unfortunately, for their first date, it’s sousuke who picks the restaurant and they wind up going to a restaurant that serves mostly the foods that get makoto’s stomach riled up.
  • he doesn’t want to say anything, since it’s obvious sousuke likes it here. he’s pretty anxious, in fact; he doesn’t want to ruin their first date, especially since he likes sousuke a lot.
  • his nerves are getting the better of him all through dinner. he flubs his words, drops his napkin, stammers, and reveals just how nervous he is. sousuke is baffled, but keeps his cool the same way he always does.
  • makoto winds up having to order from the menu; as soon as the food is brought out, he knows it’s going to upset his stomach. the last thing he wants is to bother sousuke, however, so he swallows his pride and eats it without complaint.
  • everything is fine until a few minutes after makoto’s finished with his meal. already he can feel a pressure in his stomach, swirling and trying to push its way up his chest. he attempts to regulate his breathing, focusing on anything that isn’t the pressure inside of him.
  • it winds up coming out at once, in the middle of a sentence. “dinner was really gre – UUURP.”
  • makoto is wide eyed and humiliated. sousuke raises an eyebrow, but doesn’t say anything. he doesn’t get the chance; makoto is already shooting off a flurry of apologies.
  • “ahh, i’m sorry! i didn’t mean to – huuUurp! ahh, i mean – sorry! i guess i just ate too much – bruuuUURP! ohh…”
  • finally, makoto just shuts his mouth. his face is the color of a cherry, and he barely says another word as sousuke calls for the bill. they split the check, makoto maintaining his silence the entire time. 
  • only once they’re outside, walking back to sousuke’s car, does the other boy broach the topic. “hey, are you okay? if you, uhh – if you need them, i have some antacids in my car. if your stomach hurts that much…”
  • “what? my stomach doesn’t hurt.”
  • “then why are you so quiet?”
  • makoto scratches the back of his head, chuckling nervously. he’s forced to swallow another belch down before he can reply. “i don’t – i don’t want to burp in front of you! it’s really rude, and i’m sorry i’m ruining our date –”
  • this has sousuke alarmed. makoto isn’t ruining their date at all. he doesn’t care about the burping, as long as it isn’t hurting him. he tells him as much, and for a moment it seems as if makoto is having a hard time believing it.
  • “really. it doesn’t bother me.” as if to prove it, sousuke gives makoto a light jab in the stomach. makoto belches loudly before clapping a hand over his mouth. sousuke chuckles (because an embarassed makoto is one of the cutest things he’s ever seen) and after a moment makoto is able to join in.
  • makoto learns something new about being comfortable around sousuke that night. dating someone so low-key is something he quickly comes to appreciate.

Animation Do will be coming out with a cute mini towel and mug cup using the High☆Speed Free! Starting Days chibi versions of the boys.

Ok but guys this whole scene actually makes the events of free! even more painful. Makoto struggles through the whole movie to understand his own feelings, he wants to understand himself and his reasons for swimming, and then we have this scene where Makoto finally finds his answer… he loves swimming, and he wants to share that with Haru, he wants to swim by his side, and Haru tells Makoto that it’s a given they’ll swim together… always. Until years later where Makoto starts to realize Haru is drifting away to a place he can no longer reach… and he can’t do anything but let that little boy he grew up with, go.
