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’ll be highlighting two works every week until each piece of art, comic, and fic has been in the spotlight.
FEATURED THIS WEEK:
They walk along the canals, make a detour to the Akagawara Craft District, follow another waterways, pass a small coffee shop and finally make it to the town center. There’s an open skating rink circling the big Christmas tree where children happily chase each other in. Rin takes a long look at the skating rink, then turns to Makoto and says, “Oi, Makoto, let’s skate.”
“Eh?” Makoto blinks. Well, that comes as a surprise. Makoto’s pretty good in the water, but he’s pretty sure he’d make a spectacle of himself if he tries to get on ice. He is physically huge, and nothing about him is graceful. Not even his swimming. “Uh, I’m—Rin, I’m not sure it’s a good idea—“
Rin smirks. “What,can’t you ice skate?”
The heat spreads on Makoto’s face so fast, he isn’t sure if it’s from embarrassment or disapproval. His tone turns defensive. “Well, I don’t do it a lot. None of my family like it, and the last time I went was back in grade school…”
“Eh, don’t worry about it,” Rin shrugs. “You just need to get used to it. I’ll help you.”
And the fun isn’t over yet! Party Favors, a bonus round open to everyone, is running now through March 31, 2014. Whether or not you were an original participant, you’re more than welcome to join in. :D
