  • Miyano:That’s right. I feel like, there are friends like that? It makes me jealous. It doesn’t just feel like the intimacy between close friends, they excite each other so much they want to be together all the time, that makes them the best rivals. I watched it while being happy that they have that sort of relationship.

  • Shimazaki:They don’t really meet that often though.
  • Miyano:If it were the opposite, they wouldn’t be able to think so much about the other would they?
  • (...)
  • Shimazaki:Rin is the one who was always able to move Haruka’s heart. Haruka thinks of Rin as his rival, and also his friend. That’s why I was really happy to hear Rin’s feelings for the first time in season 2, episode 12. Since up until then I didn’t know.
  • They didn’t say it directly but their feelings were the same, and they were able to convey that they remembered when they met. I think it was the final factor in Haruka deciding his dream, that talk was really important.

  • Miyano:It really does feels like the two of them are a “destined pair”.
Soulmates and Tattoos/Closed RP with swim-club-boys

Growing up Makoto was always told that when he or his soulmate got a tattoo it would show up on his skin. He always thought it was silly until Haru woke up with a tattoo that matched Rin’s. Makoto wouldn’t want to admit it to Haru but he was jealous. 

Everyone else seemed to have their soulmate except for him. Everyone looked so happy and he wanted to be happy for them but he was jealous and sad. What if his soulmate never got a tattoo? What if he didn’t want to find him? Should he get a tattoo? All of these thoughts swirled through his mind constantly until one day when he was twenty.

He felt a pain and quickly went to the mirror to see a tattoo appearing on his skin. It was a pair of wings. They were so beautiful and Makoto felt like they suited him in a way. He was so happy that he knew now that he had a soulmate. He couldn’t wait to find him. Every day Makoto would search for the tattoo as he went to school. It was a pretty big campus and he knew it was stupid to look when his soulmate may not even live in Tokyo. They could be in another country for all he knew. 

Makoto was twenty and a sophomore in college. After months of looking he had given up on looking for someone with his tattoo. Until one day he caught sight of a pair of wings that looked just like his. This was finally it. He quickly followed the other hoping that this was his soulmate. His heart beating fast. 


Fragile blossoms. || @wild-crazy-and-beautiful


Don’t touch the flowers by the river…

But they were so pretty. Mei-Rin had always wanted to make a bouquet of those yellow blossoms. And now, at last, there was no-one to stand next to her, reminding her that she shouldn’t be doing that.

Smiling and inhaling the scent, she took off her shoes and sat with her feet in the cold water. At first, she wanted to pick up the flowers. But… something didn’t let her. Instead, she just admired them, playing with the delicate, velvety stem, humming a song quietly.

Many would be jealous of her life; it was carefree and quiet. Mei-Rin loved strolling amongst the flowers and just sitting in the water, surrounded by grass. There could be nothing better than that.

Unless that man was around…

So I watched Free!ES episode 7 yesterday

and I couldn’t help but think about Makoto’s fortune.

If those goddamn fortunes are right enough and “that person” Makoto is supposedly waiting for will come, then I’m convinced that is has GOT TO BE SOUSUKE.

I mean, in episode 6 there was the whole thing with Makoto saying he might have been jealous of Rin’s rivalry/relationship with Haru and there’s the interview talking about how Makoto can never really be rivals with them.

So I thought that even if Makoto can’t be “rivals” with Haru and Rin, he COULD have a similar relationship with a certain someone else, aka this person who Makoto is waiting for.

You know who I’m talking about: a certain somebody from Samezuka who is in a slightly similar position to Makoto and doesn’t seem to approve of Rin’s relationship with Haruka.

I’m certain Makoto and Sousuke will cross paths sooner or later, if my logic is good enough (unless by any chance High Speed! volume 2 has anything against this and/or it’s actually another character). Keep hanging in there, my fellow soumako shippers and those who just want to see Sousuke and Makoto interact already in general~

Ok, so Haru cockblocks Sou every time he tries to initiate contact with fem!Mako. 

But what if Rin finds out. And it turns out that when they were little, Rin had the biggest crush on fem!Mako. So now, he’s oddly protective of her (and kinda sorta jealous of Sou). 

So now, it’s not just Haru doing the cockblocking, it’s Rin too. 

Double cockblocking. 

If Sou ever manages to evade one of them, there’s the other he has to deal with.
