height difference is my weakness…i may have exaggerated it a little bit ๑´ㅂ`๑)
ɪ’ᴠᴇ sᴇᴇɴ ᴀ ғᴇᴡ rec lists floating around but i decided to make one of my own. let haru take us along on a magical journey of shipping and basking in glorious prose and flawless characterization and gut-pulling plot. the ship is alive. there is nothing to fear.01, thrust your fingers into the surface and carve an opening
♦ denial is not just a river in egypt by ad_astra | ao3 linkis this the makorin bible? probably? a+ rec for lung-busting humor, so much friendship magic and warmth that you will never need a blanket during wintertime, and the kind of rin characterization that you dream about even when you’re wide awake — not to mention an incredible portrayal of the iwatobis. if you haven’t read this fic, drop what you’re doing and go!
♦ loose ends by four_sweatervests | ao3 linkfav thing about this fic: rin and kou’s relationship, a delicately tread balance between experience and intimate adventure, makoto’s parents actually exist, plus some pretty awesome emoting stuff.
♦ love thy neighbor by attemptsonwords | ao3 linki can actually see this happening. ft. some of the best pacing + development ever, the right blend of swashbuckling humor and hot de-stressing action and domestic shenanigans in a too-small apartment in tokyo.02, then slide your body through that opening
♦ bellyflop or dive by mangemouth | ao3 linkincludes: a crucial factor that is missing in a lot of makorin fics: the nagirin dynamic. also includes: adorably tsundere-ing rin, amazingly accurate nagisa, unexpectedly strong and heartwarming emotions.
♦ his fate, tinted red by isuilde | ao3 linka color (and sometimes blind) soulmates au, incredibly raw and emotionally written, esp near the end — one of those fics you end up reading over a lot while crying into your pillow each time.
♦ i saw sparks by lisettedelapin | ao3 linklike summer melting into a song.
♦ our earthly days by isoladea | ao3 linkreally nice prose, a neat little episode that fits snuggly back in season 1. the kind of seed you plant in the minds of unwitting shippers.
♦ quadrennium by risotto | ao3 linkthe future fic OF YOUR DREAMS! olympic rin, slow build, incredibly satisfying 8)
♦ seven weeks & fourteen months by katjalaroux | ao3 linkthis is also something that can actually happen; it’s really sweet, brings out a caring side of rin.03, moving your arms, your head, your chest...
♦ one thousand and one by risotto | ao3 linkthis arabian au/scheherazade fusion is so beautiful your heart will ache — the language, the stories, and the development are all so elegant and subtle, not to mention dreamlike in its romance.
♦ flowers are too much of a hassle (but if you liked it, okay then) by isuilde | ao3 linka fluffy flower shop au that makes you feel like the entire world is made out of daisies and there are screentoned roses inked onto the corner of every wall.
philosophy homework sux so here i am
Continuing the post-Free! with MakoHaru as university students, usually Makoto would treat them both for ice cream during breaks then all of a sudden Haru would keep on grabbing his bag strap for no reason. He wouldn’t usually mind until Haru pulled so hard and then well… this kinda happens and everyone around them just stares at them thinking "are they not even embarrassed?" Apparently the reason behind the strap pulling was so that Haru can make sure Makoto doesn’t go off anywhere again where he couldn’t see him. Based on this official art that I have no idea where it is from. I should be embarrassed drawing this but decided to dismiss the whole idea HAHAHHA they are so gross
I wasn’t gonna reblog it but the tags just spoke to me. It is EXACTLY as I want it. HAHHAHA Thank you. Haru’s just tsundere, he likes all the attention Makoto is giving him and would like to show it off when they are in Tokyo because damn he’s got one fine young man and ladies should just back off.
