its 2am and i need to sleep
not much editing done with this one (i’m sorry weeps)
GUESS WHAT THIS IS
ok lmao this isnt as good but i trrriiieeeeddd (weeps)
but yeah, i hope the message still gets across! that is, uhh
i’m sure a lot of us are already aware of the photo included in one of the free! DVDs of makoto pulling haru out of the water, and i’ve already seen a lot of meta on it (god bless u guys)
ANYWAY yeah I was listening to Koujaku’s Bad Ending song again (its title is Tears how fucking appropriate is that) and I just sort of had this thing where I wanted to draw the opposite half of the makoto-haru relationship, because while I first thought of saying that its the ‘reversal’ of their thing, it’s really not??
because a reversal implies that haru doesn’t hold his hand out to makoto in the first place, which isn’t true
and I’m sure you guys know that. Seriously though, have you guys ever thought of how it must feel to always hold out a hand for your stoic best friend?? If you’re any other person I’m p sure you wouldn’t hold out a hand in the first place for fear of being ignored or, at worst, being rejected. But Makoto always holds out a hand for Haru and I just
I DIGRESS (hahaha)
My point for this photoset is that Makoto doesn’t always remember that Haru also holds out a hand for him
Like, it’s a p known thing that Makoto is always there for Haru (did I even have to say that when I know that all of you know that)
But on the flip-side, does Makoto know that Haru will always be there for him? Or, if he does know, is he aware of how much Haru reciprocates his concern? There’s already a meta going around about Makoto preferring to cry alone over being seen or comforted by anyone else because he doesn’t want to burden other people with his feelings.
Sure, he confessed about his fear of the ocean during episode 6, but if Rei never almost drowned would he have talked about it? I don’t think so. I’m p sure he’d have never told anyone until that time Rei asked him about it.
GETTING BACK TO MY POINT
Haru has always been there for Makoto. As much as Makoto is the more open of the pair, it’s still Haru who knows Makoto best. (I highly suggest you read High Speed! to fully understand that one.) He was the one who first asked about Makoto’s fear of the ocean. It’s not Haru’s style to beat around the bush, which is why Makoto couldn’t help but answer. Rin couldn’t pull the answer out of him when he asked about Makoto’s well-being, but Haru could, because he knew that he’d have to get straight to the point with Makoto. Because he knows Makoto and he knows that Makoto would rather hide than tell anyone freely about his fears or worries. Who was it that took Makoto’s hand when he saw the procession for the people who died from the ship sinking in Iwatobi?
Answer: It was Haru. From what I’ve read of the translated version of the novel, it says that Makoto was gripping onto Haru’s shirt the whole time he was trembling behind him. It was Haru who took Makoto’s hand; it was also Haru who took Makoto away from that frightening scene.
tl;dr The thing most people forget is that Haru’s hand is also open for Makoto when he needs it. It’s not just Makoto who cares. Haru just isn’t as showy as Makoto when it comes down to it.
