The 2014 Tachibana Makoto Birthday Fanworks Exchange is coming soon. For updates, follow this blog. In the meantime, please enjoy this week’s Spotlight works.
If you’re running another event for Makoto’s birthday or one for any other character in Free!, we’d love to affiliate and cross-promote with you — especially if it’s Sousuke or Rei, since their birthdays are right before and right after Makoto’s. :D Just drop us a line.
♥♥♥
Makoto’s birthday inspired so much great fanart and fanfic throughout the free!dom, it was hard to keep up with it all! If you missed any of the seriously excellent fanworks created as part of the 2013 Makoto Birthday Exchange, fear not: we’re highlighting two works every week until each piece of art, comic, and fic has been in the spotlight.
FEATURED THIS WEEK (July 27, 2014):

Ever since the regionals tournament, something had been off.
Makoto wasn’t sure if he was just looking at things too deeply, but he was confident that there was something amiss within his circle of friends. After all, Makoto considered himself well-versed in how his childhood friends were feeling and how to respond accordingly, often advocating on their behalf as well as advising them.
And while Makoto wasn’t as close to Rei as he was to the others, Makoto felt confident in his assumption that there was something bothering Rei, especially after the regionals. After all, the disqualification was to be expected since they did break a major rule by switching one of their members with another school’s. But nonetheless, everyone saw as well as felt the importance behind the regionals, which was to get everyone — including Rin — to swim together.
And while he felt immense happiness and gratitude towards Rei for doing what he did to allow everyone, especially Haruka, to swim with Rin again and put behind all their issues; now that that had passed, Makoto felt that lingering feeling that was at the back of his mind at the time.
As days passed, Makoto managed pin down what that feeling was. Guilt. They never really got to swim with Rei at the regionals, did they? And after everyone in their small swim club had said a lot of inspirational things, such as how every member was irreplaceable and that they were team, too…

Also we’re looking for some help for this round, especially in the promo department (making graphics, getting the word out with reblogs and/or contacting potential affiliates, etc.). If this sounds like your thing, please drop me an ask. :D
