If you came over for the Tachibana Makoto Birthday Fanworks Exchange, there's now a dedicated blog: makotobirthdayexchange
This is mainly an appreciation blog for fandoms and fanart. I especially love inspirational sports anime! Currently whiling away the hours with Chihayafuru, Daiya no A | Diamond no Ace, Free!, and Haiykuu!!.
I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about Mashima Taichi and Miyuki Kazuya. If you ever want to talk about either one, you know where to find me!
♥ Multishipper ♥ Makoto shipper ♥
Sometimes I write fanfic. Sometimes I write vignettes and scenes that may or may not evolve into something more. And sometimes I reblog fanart with spontaneous ficlets. There's also this Haru/Makoto comic I did with marskels. :D
I try to have something to say about the art I reblog, what I like about it or what I think is going on. I don't write a lot of critical analysis but sometimes I can think things. On occasion I even do headcanons.
Oooohh, is the makorin water guns AU giving you plot bunnies?? ;)
HAHA Makoto would be like, "the rinmakos is fine but why not the makorins?". Rin laughs like it’s the most obvious thing in the world and says, "It’s because I’m the leader!"
I think Mako would give in to Rin if Rin really wanted to name them “the rinmakos”, but they ended up choosing “Apex Predators” because it’s cooler, n
ot because Nagisa pointed out the resemblance of their team name to a couple’s nickname lol.
Ahhh, I’m actually terrible at naming things too so I’m definitely open to more creative team names~
Oh man, I can’t believe you mentioned Nagisa—because I originally had him as Makoto’s childhood friend who suggested that team name! Like maybe when they’re having the makorin - rinmako discussion, Haru is the one sitting there just looking back and forth between them. “What is it, Haru?” Makoto says.
"What is a ‘rinmako,’ though?" There is the faintest crease to Haru’s brow. "How will I draw that for your logo?"
Makoto gets so excited that Haru is going to draw their logo, he kind of forgets they’re having a discussion about the name; Rin thinks it’s so obvious that they are the rinmakos and the rinmakos are them, he doesn’t know how to explain it; and Nagisa is like, “Oh! I know, I know—”
"We’re not going to be rock hopper penguins," Makoto says, gently but quickly, as a certain gleam in Nagisa’s eye reminds him of the topic of discussion.
"Apex Predators!" Nagisa grins triumphantly, points first at Makoto—"Orca"—and then at Rin—"and Great White Shark!"
"I’m not a great white, though," Rin says.
Nagisa looks very serious now. “If you aren’t, Mako will probably eat you.”
Rin hopes none of them ask about the blush that suddenly comes upon him at the thought of Makoto eating him… “Fine,” he says, pretending that he’s not blushing, willing the heat to leave his face.
Haru already has his sketch pad out, asking Makoto something about the specs for the logo needed and Makoto is turned towards him to respond; only Nagisa looks at Rin and his fading blush with an unmistakable glimmer in his eye.
Ohh Miaou~~ Thank you for indulging we with your writing~ ///w/// I’m glad you included the part where Haru drew their logo :’) Ahh, but now that we’ve decided on their team name, can we talk about all the possible body contact?? :)
Like their soaked backs against each other, causing Makoto to shiver. The water makes it feels like there’s one less layer between them and it takes all he has to not relax into Rin. But it looks like being a saint really pays off because Rin suddenly pushes hard against him. If flesh could melt, Makoto would be a puddle by now.
"Hey Makoto, keep your eyes open." Rin shifts and Makoto’s more alert than ever - now if only he could direct his focus towards the enemy. "They’re around here somewhere, I know it."
And then cue lots of moments where Makoto and Rin are huddling and rubbing up against each other (you know, trying to hide behind a bush to surprise their enemy) or just Makoto wrapping himself around Rin to protect him from being shot because “we can’t have our number one shooter getting kicked out of the game, right?” Makoto winks.
Ahhh, this is how I pictured the rest of the AU.
- Mako being a blushing mess at first whenever they’re too close.
- Rin being too caught up in the game to notice.
- Mako gradually starts being forward with his advances. First, there was arm swinging over shoulder and it escalated into Mako casually resting his chin on Rin’s shoulder so that their cheeks flush warm from the proximity~~
- Bonus: everyone else (especially Nagisa) noticed their in-game flirting and kept creating situations where Makoto and Rin would fall on top of each other, trying to dodge or something :’)
[Ah ha ha, no, thank you for letting me indulge myself in your world! :D I have a little more, if that’s all right… I hope I don’t go too far from what you’re imagining, but please let me know if I do!]
In addition to all the informal play and clubs and even organized amateur leagues, there are also professional leagues for water gun games in various countries. Every three years, in addition to regular season play, there’s a big international tournament. That’s what Rin is aiming for, with Makoto’s help.
To make it to the World Water Gun Tournament, the Apex Predators will have to be at the top of the Japan Water Gun League at the right time. First, of course, they have to make it into the Japan Water Gun League.
d’awww!! makes me delighted to hear it! (｡’ ▽ ’｡)♡ thank you!
here’s some more then~
P.S. still crying about episode 10
You know how there are lazy afternoons, and there are lazy afternoons? I think the boys are having one of those lazy ones, where everything is pleasant and nothing really matters except the company you keep.
"Makoto, can I just," Sousuke says, draping his legs across Makoto’s back, feeling the soft worn material of the shirt they’ve traded so many times he can’t even remember whose it was originally.
"Yeah," Makoto says, languid smile floating to Sousuke on the words. "You can always just."
i don’t feel well……;w;
(Arvy, I’m doing this in advance of the art this time! Hope that’s okay!)
"I don’t feel well," Stan said.
Kyle pulled back his phone and looked at it for a second before putting it to his ear again. He listened to Stan breathing. “Well, hello to you, too,” he said.
"I’m not kidding, dude," Stan said, flat-voiced. "I really don’t feel well." Then he sneezed.
Kyle jerked his head away from the phone before he could process rationally that the germs wouldn’t be blasted into ear because they couldn’t cross the same waves as Stan’s voice.
"Dude, get into bed and shove some tissues up your nose."
Some rustling came down the line, and Stan’s voice was muted and muffled in addition to being flat when he said, “Okay, done.”
Stan. Oh Stan, kid. Kyle’s fingers caressed the back of his phone, even though he knew Stan couldn’t feel it or see it or even know it was happening. “Want me to come over?” he asked tentatively. He wasn’t sure whether Stan’s opening line, which he now thought might be an understatement, was a warning or a request.
A gust of breath came down the line, swelled to a cough, trailed off again. “Yeah. If you re—” Stan broke off to cough again. “I mean, yeah, dude. Please.”
Kyle smiled. “I’ll be right there.”
Stan’s breath rose and fell on the other end of the line and somehow Kyle knew Stan had felt his smile, because he could feel Stan’s, too.
