Seated at the kotatsu with his back against the bed, Makoto clicked and scrolled through various articles. He had to write an essay about a common injury in athletes, how to prevent it and possible remedies. The choice for rotator cuff injuries had been a simple one: Sousuke had first-hand experience with recovering from a pretty severe case with surgery and therapy and Makoto could gather some useful knowledge through him.

When Makoto sent him a message this morning to ask if he would be willing to share his experience in detail, Sousuke had agreed and they talked on the phone for about an hour after class. Although this essay wasn’t due for another week and a half, he wanted to get started right away, now the conversation with Sousuke was still fresh in his mind. Of course, he took a bunch of notes while Sousuke explained the medical process he went through and the physical therapy he had once a week, but it was better to get started while he was ahead.

So after dinner, he brewed a nice cup of tea, burrowed himself under the kotatsu and got to work. Sousuke’s anecdotes were extremely helpful, but he couldn’t write an essay based on his personal experience solely, so he surfed from one medical journal to the next in search of more information.

But when he opened his document to start typing, a call button popped up on the screen. One glance at the clock made him smile. It was seven-fifty, ten minutes before the agreed-upon time. Ran and Ren were eager as always.

eyyyyyy, so it’s my birthday and i want to celebrate in two weeks. Until now, I wanted to set up an escape room in my bedroom for my guests to solve, but I came across the problem that i can only invite 6 people because of the little space i have. Recently I’ve met a lot of new people that a i also want to invite. (like 10, don’t worry, corona restrictions in my country allow that) Soooooo, has anyone some good ideas for a birthday parties that are creative (i don’t like unplanned parties, so i need help)

Heavy rainfall pattered against the building and washed over David, whose head was concealed by his fedora. This was it. This was the climax and Makoto hugged the pillow on his lap to his chest.

That fateful day, a rat got lost in the middle of an experiment.

It’s okay,” Veronica said from the bottom of the stairs, clutching her pet cat, Snowball, against her chest. “No matter who you’ve changed into, it won’t change the moments we shared or my love for you!

Happy memories of David and Veronica flashed across the screen as she said her piece and Makoto held his breath.

Thank you, Veronica, but…” David whipped his head up and the wind blew his hat away. Lightning struck behind David and Veronica gasped loudly, eyebrows raised in terror. The handsome face she had fallen in love with was gone, replaced by a rat’s head. Tears shimmered in David’s eyes as he said, “Since you love cats, I can’t live with you!

David! Please, no!

Please forgive me!

With that, David ran off. Veronica collapsed on the stairs, weeping loudly in Snowball’s white fur.

When Haruka asked him if he wanted to model for a drawing he had to make for his art elective, Makoto agreed immediately. He was happy to help Haruka out wherever he could and he felt honoured that Haruka wanted to draw him for an assignment. Although he imagined it would be difficult to sit still for an extensive amount of time, he was pretty excited about trying something new with Haruka. If he got cramps from holding the same position for too long, Haruka would surely give him a break.

But when Haruka laid out all his supplies and set out a chair for him, that excitement quickly diminished.

“Take off your clothes.”

“Why?” Makoto asked with a frown.

“It’s an anatomy assignment,” Haruka explained, “I have to draw your body and I can’t see your muscles and bone structure through your sweater and jeans.”

That did make sense so Makoto stripped down to his underwear without any protests, though he did feel a bit self-conscious. Being in his leg skins at the pool was so much different from being in his underwear on an assignment Haruka’s professor would grade. But he told himself they’d view it with a professional eye and not a scrutinising one, and they probably had to look at hundreds of other drawings so he hopefully wouldn’t stand out too much.

I am telling u, the way i sat there at 2 am feeding my my 1 month old, and watched that stupid clip on repeat like 40 times what the FUVK

Cannot deal with Haru’s shock when Makoto calls out to him and Rin. He genuinely didn’t expect him to be there?? Bc he didn’t expect to be forgiven so easily bc he didn’t deserve it?? But ofc Makoto is there. Ofc he is. When has he not been there for Haru?

How hard Haru tries to say something to him, anything, a greeting, an apology, anything at all, just talk to him, so that Makoto can respond and he can hear his voice, bc he hasn’t talked to him in days and that’s never happened before and he missed him. How he knows he should beg for forgiveness. But nothing comes out bc he’s never needed words with Makoto before and now everything has changed, and now he’s blushing and he really doesn’t know what to say

But jfc Makoto just gets him doesn’t he??? Ofc Haru doesn’t need to say anything. Ofc Makoto understands. Yes things have changed, but change isn’t always bad and they’ll always be Makoto and Haru who understand each other instinctively.

And will i E V E R get over the SOFTNESS of Makoto’s voice when he says Okaeri?? Absolutely not. The forgiveness that’s in those words and how they leave Haru, useless with words Haru, even more speechless. (Without joking his okaeri & swimming pool ily actually play in my head in a loop like elevator music i really am going MAD, I like to blame my lack of sleep but really KyoAni did this to me)

The music that starts playing like this is a Disney Channel Original from 2008. Haru’s hair woosh bc he’s a anime princess. The way Rin is just there, 3rd wheeling, like:

They are so in love that it aches to think about sometimes. Like you just know they are so happy to have spent their whole lives by each other’s sides and they’ll continue to stick together as they get older. It’s so beautiful that as much as they learn and grow as individuals, learning more about themselves and who they want to be, the other hangs on through the hurricane of growing pains and falls even more in love by the end of it. As much as Haru feared Makoto leaving behind Iwatobi and fighting for his own dream, he knows Makoto will be so happy helping people connect with swimming and be their best. He loves that Makoto will continue to be a caring spirit, but also knows there’s a forest fire set in those green eyes, and he is now ready more than ever to speak up and protect his dream, his passions, his people. In turn, Makoto made peace with Haru going pro as soon as he got the feeling after their race against each other, but now he finds no lingering sadness watching Haru from the stands during his races, because as hard as Haru pushes himself through the water, he always finds time to look up at Makoto with a gaze that promises his dream always had a place carved out for his best friend. He loves that Haru seems more at ease as time goes on because he is more in-tune with all of the emotions swirling in his head and he’s not as scared to work with them, talk about them, do something about them. He’s never felt unloved by Haru, even during the lowest moments of their relationship, but Makoto can’t help but feel so loved these days when Haru gives him the kindest of smiles, and if the twinkle in his eyes mean anything, Haru definitely feels the same.

If there was one thing Haruka had known since he was a child, it was that when he came of age, he would be married off to a member of royalty or nobility of some foreign realm. As the crown prince of Tobi, that was his destiny and he made peace with it years ago. But when the day for him to meet his spouse-to-be arrived, he was everything but okay.

“Come on, Haru,” Nagisa said as he poured more hot water into his bath. “Don’t get all sulky before you even meet him. Maybe he’s actually really nice!”

Haruka huffed and averted his head. Nagisa might’ve been bubbly and optimistic, but Haruka didn’t share his positivity. The biggest hurdle for him was not that he was being married off, but to whom and what this arrangement entailed.

The lucky bachelor was Prince Makoto Tachibana. He was the oldest child and heir of the Tachibana family and the crown prince of Iwa, a neighbouring kingdom that was relatively small but still twice as big as Tobi.

                                             ——————————–

When Makoto visited the shrine on January first and prayed for a good year, the last thing he expected was to be in quarantine because of a pandemic three months later. And yet, that was exactly the situation he found himself in.

His study and work had been put on hold and he had to refrain from leaving his home except for necessary groceries, but Makoto felt like he couldn’t complain. He wouldn’t get lonely because Haruka was here and there was no one he’d rather be stuck inside with than him. They recently moved into a bigger apartment, so even if they did get sick of each other’s company - which was unlikely - they could retreat to either the bathroom and their bedroom, which was separate from the living room and kitchen. All of their loved ones remained to be healthy up until now which was a blessing in itself, and he’d always been a homebody anyway so he didn’t miss going out and about as much as some of their more extroverted friends.

But there were days Makoto couldn’t help but feel lost. After all, he was in Tokyo to follow his dreams and it was a bit frustrating he couldn’t continue to live the life he meticulously built here. When days passed during which cancelled plans should’ve taken place, the sullen feeling welled up and he missed even the most mundane things, like going to a bookstore with Ikuya and Hiyori or drinking coffee at Marron and catching up with Kisumi, Asahi, Akane and little Tsukushi.

One of the reasons why I will always exalt MakoHaru above RinHaru, IkuHaru and any other Haru ship is because I don’t think Makoto treats Haru as a hero.

Both Rin and Ikuya admire Haru, want to swim like him, and want to defeat him. He is a swimming authority for them. In my opinion, adoration does not usually make a relationship healthy. A rivalry between two people also can be problematic.

But for Makoto Haru is Haru. Even when Nao sugessted Makoto was swimming because Haru was doing it, I didn’t even think for a moment that Makoto was blindly following Haru as if Nanase were his hero or something. Makoto just wants to be with Haru because he likes him for what he is.

                                         ————————————

One of the biggest changes Haruka had to get used to when he moved to Tokyo was the distance. In Iwatobi, everywhere he needed to go was a stone’s throw or a bike ride away, whether it be school or the swim club or the shopping centre or even just the beach. Compared to the small, rural town he grew up in, this metropolis was overwhelmingly large. Here, the only places that happened to be within walking distance were the pool and the convenience store around the corner. For everything else, he had to catch a train. That included Makoto’s apartment.

For as long as he could remember, Makoto and he had been neighbours. Removed by one stairwell, Haruka’s house was located a bit higher than Makoto’s, but their bedroom windows faced one another. If the curtains were drawn back, they could see each other without any trouble. Although it was a bit too far for them to be able to talk without yelling across the street and disturbing the whole town, they found other ways to communicate - before they got their cellphones, that was. They’d hold up notes to ask the other something without having to leave the house first. They were usually questions like ‘do you want to come over?’ or 'shall we go to the playground?’, but a request of 'can you bring your colouring book?’ wasn’t uncommon either.

Ever since middle school, Haruka would occasionally sneak a glance underneath the curtains after he went to bed to see if the lights in Makoto’s room were still on. If they were, he’d imagine Makoto had fallen asleep while playing a game or was cramming for an upcoming history test. During the times his parents were gone and he was left alone in the house, those thoughts brought him comfort. It made him feel less lonely knowing Makoto was near.

Fresh out of the bath, Haruka walked back into the room. Makoto was sitting on the bed with his back against the wall, engrossed in his phone.

“The bath’s free,” Haruka said, but Makoto didn’t respond. Instead, he opened his mouth slowly, not saying a word, then he chuckled under his breath. With a frown, Haruka went over to him and asked, “What are you doing?”

“Oh, Haru!” Makoto said as though he hadn’t even noticed he was here. He patted the mattress next to him. “Come sit. I want to show you something.”

Haruka plopped down beside him and scooted over until their thighs touched. When he peered onto Makoto’s screen, he frowned. The front-facing camera was open and he stared back at his own face. He didn’t quite understand what was so remarkable about this. “What?”

“Now open your mouth slowly.”

Another incredulous look was sent Makoto’s way, but Haruka did as he was told and let his jaw slacken. Instantly, a rainbow waterfall cascaded from his mouth while his eyes grew big and his cheeks were tinged pink. The furrow between Haruka’s eyebrows deepened. “What is this?”
