You know what, I felt for Rin too in this episode and the fact he was at the receiving end of Harus frustration and anger but this is not fucking about Rin.
"Poor Rin, he might not be able to swim with Haru in the finals"
"Poor Rin, he and Haru won’t be able to swim together in uni"
I’ll say it again; this is not about Rin. I’m sorry but Rin has his life in order, he has his future planned and Haru doesn’t
Rins future doesn’t have to depend on Haru in the same way Harus doesn’t for any one else
Yeah Rin would have been hurt but you know what? Unconsciously or not he played a part in Haru snapping like that. It’s not his place to get angry at Haru like that because of his lack of understanding. Yes he is his friend but Haru is having his own issues and all Rin can complain about is how Haru ruined any kind of chance to be picked up by scouts? His priorities are in the wrong place. He doesn’t go in and ask Haru if he’s feeling ok, not once this episode did he do that. When Haru stopped dead in his tracks he still didn’t think to ask “Hey you doing ok?” because it was clear as day Haru wasn’t being himself.
Just I’m so fucking angry what the hell.
#listen i don’t even have a problem with rin in that scene #we all know he and haru are terrible at communicating with each other #and that was his way of showing that he cares #that he’s worried about haru and his future #so my issue here is not with rin #i love that boy #it’s some people’s reaction that its pissing me off #because that scene was not about rin #that scene was not about rin getting hurt because haru was ~inconsiderate~ of his feelings #it was the complete opposite #that scene was about haru feeling cornered and finally exploding and letting things out #after a very long time of putting up with people’s constant nagging #because he never asked for this #he never asked for all the attention and expectations that are being placed on him #if anything haru is the ”victim” here #he’s the one you should be worrying about #he finally snapped but he’s not more enlightened than he was before #he’s still troubled as hell #so if you look at that scene and your first thought is ‘poor rin’ im sorry but i don’t even know what to tell you
don’t touch me right now
Dark Waters - chapter 1
If you haven’t read mungoe's new fic, you're missing out. This would make more sense after you do since these are scenes that happen during the first chapter. The designs of Gajeel and Levy are by approvesport and blackracoon25 though I tweaked them a tiny bit ^^;
I will become as strong as Izumi Nee-san. Making a perfect cage. I will protect you.
- Then, just so you know. If you ever possess such tremendous power, please kill me. I’ve had enough. Being an undead.
- I got it. It’s a deal. But I don’t have that power yet. Let’s call a truce before then.
The best part of DISPLAY(Instrumental), looped for your listening convenience. Because I’m sure the 14 seconds of it by itself is not enough.
treat yourself the same way makoto tachibana would treat you
I used your power. Not for anyone else! But for myself!
Some concept practice :P
