*door opens*
Sousuke: Oh? Welcome back, Rin.
Rin: Hey Sousuke. Oh, what’cha up to? Summer vacation homework?
Sousuke: Yeah…Hey Rin, can you help me with English?
Rin: Nuh-uh~ It doesn’t make sense for me to do it for you.
Sousuke: C’mon, besides… I helped you with classical literature last time!
Rin: Ugh…okay fine. Just a little bit.
Sousuke: *laughs* You’re really helping me out!
Rin: Yeah yeah…
Sousuke: In other news, wasn’t it hot today? My throat is burning like mad.
Rin: That’s right, me too.
Sousuke: Well then…how about the loser has to buy the winner juice?
Rin: You’re ON!
Both: JAN KEN…
Rin: AW YEAH I WIN!
Sousuke: Damn…
Rin: So about that juice…any kind is fine.
Sousuke: Okay…I’ll go to the vending machine to get it.

Momo: I’m back! Pyunsuke~~~ Were you lonely when I wasn’t here, Pyunsuke? 
Nitori: Momo-kun, I don’t think stag beetles get lonely…
Momo: Noooo Pyunsuke…
Nitori: Momo-kun, don’t just be worrying about stag beetles. Don’t you have other things to do? 
Momo: Pyunsuke~~ you were crawling around today huh…that’s so cool!
Nitori: He’s totally ignoring me…I guess I’ll do my homework. Hmm…well then, now where is my English homework? Should be around here somewhere… AH!! Momo-kun watch out!
Momo: Ahhhhh!!!!!
Nitori: Momo-kun are you okay!
Momo: I’m fine! Pyunsuke should also be okay…WAIT WHERE IS PYUNSUKE?
Nitori: Oh man he’s flying somewhere!
Momo: Pyunsukeeee where are you going!!?!?

~~~

Rin: It’s so damn noisy, who the hell is running? Oh shit, I totally forgot to tell Momo and Ai’s training menu for tomorrow… I wonder if they’re in their room… *knock knock* Ai, Momo? Are they not here? All right I’m coming in…what the…IT IS SO MESSY IN HERE. IN FACT, IT IS WAY TOO MESSY. I told them so many times to clean up! Where the hell did they go?

~~~

Sousuke: Hmm…I guess I’ll get cola for myself, but I wonder what Rin wants…He did say he didn’t care, but that just makes it harder for me to decide!
Ai: *gasping* Momo-kun wait up! You’re too fast!
Momo: What are you talking about, Nitori-senpai? If we don’t hurry Pyunsuke will fly out of the dorm!
Ai: I know!! Oh? Yamazaki-senpai! You did well today!
Momo: Good job today! I recommend the top right drink!
Sousuke: Ah? Yeah…
Momo: Pyunsuke~~ where are you going?
Ai: Momo-kun wait uppppp!!!
Sousuke: What the heck are those two doing?
*running*
Rin: Hey Sousukeee! Did you see Ai and Momo come by here?
Sousuke: Ah yeah, the two of them ran over there!
Rin: Thank you!
Sousuke: Wait Rin! What about your juice? Which one do you want?
Rin: I don’t really care! Just get me the top right one!
Sousuke: The top right one? Hm….? Okay then…

~~~

Ai & Momo: *gasps*
Ai: Pyunsuke~ where are you? Momo-kun look! That stag beetle on that tree might be Pyunsuke!
Momo: That brilliant form…it DEFINITELY is Pyunsuke!
Nitori & Momo: Ahhhh!!
Rin: I FOUND YOU GUYS!
Ai: Rin-senpai…
Rin: Oi…..Ai!
Ai: YES!
Momo: Nitori-senpai!
Ai: Momo-kun, leave this here to me. You need to go! I’m begging you!
Momo: Nitori-senpai!!!!!! I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU SENPAI!
Rin: Ai! What the hell is wrong with your room?
Ai: I’m sorry, I got caught up with practice and was definitely going to clean up but I uh…
Rin: WHY YOU!!!!!!
Ai: AHHH!!!
Rin: Just by looking at your room I can tell what’s really in your heart. Clean up that shit before practice tomorrow otherwise I AM THROWING EVERYTHING AWAY.
Ai: OKAY! I’M SORRY! *runs away*
Momo: Pyunsuke!! Ah there he is!
Rin: HEY MOMO!
Momo: Guhh, Rin-senpai!
Rin: GO BACK TO YOUR ROOM. WHY THE HELL IS IT SO DIRTY?
Momo: Ahhhh…before that, please hear me out…
Rin: AHHHHH!!!!!
Momo: *crying* Ahhh Pyunsuke is heading towards Rin-senpai! Please dodge it, Rin-senpai!
Rin: What? *Pyunsuke flies into Rin* GAHH OUCH! What the????? The stag beetles—!!!
Momo: Rin-senpai, that’s amazing! You’re definitely important to these stag beetles~ There are so many! Yahooooo!
Rin: Don’t pull my chest! I’m getting bitten by these stag beetles!
Momo: Rin-senpai, I’m going to keep all of these!
Rin: I don’t care! This hurts! Oww!
Momo: Rin-senpai, give me at least 10!
Rin: Stop this right now!

~~~

*opens door*
Rin: That was such a pain.
Sousuke: Welcome back!
Rin: Yeah, I’m back…Man, all that running really got me thirsty.
Sousuke: Then drink this. ‘Savor the feelings of stag beetles, a thick and fine sugar honey drink’ By Second Gold Sweets
Rin: Uhhh……
Sousuke: What’s wrong?
Rin: You too?? ‘Savor the feelings of stag beetles, a thick and fine sugar honey drink’ By Second Gold Sweets” WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? This is not a drink that humans should be drinking! Why don’t YOU try drinking this?
Sousuke: Not gonna happen. You were the one who chose it after all…’Give me whatever is on the top right.’
Rin: Why didn’t you think about it a bit more? Isn’t it weird?
Sousuke: Rin *pats* try to remember when we also used to catch stag beetles.
Rin: I’m going to punch you!
Sousuke: Now that’s not fair.

~~~

Nitori: Rin-senpai!
Momo: Yamazaki-senpai!
Nitori & Momo: Good morning!
Nitori: Rin-senpai, what’s wrong? You don’t look so good…
Rin: It’s just some heartburn, don’t worry about it…
Sousuke: In either case, you did pretty well…
Rin: YOU should try drinking this next time and ‘taste the feelings of stag beetles.’
Sousuke: Well, I think I’ll pass…I’d prefer the rhinoceros beetle type instead.
Rin: What the heck aren’t they like the same thing?
Momo: Rin-senpai ,what are you saying?! It’s totally different! Rhinoceros beetles have horns but stag beetles have this very strong chin called pincers! Depending on the beetle, the pincers differ and AH! Rin-senpai are you interested in stag beetles? If so I have some really awesome juice that you should totally try!
Sousuke: Oh really now, what kind of juice is that~? I’ll recommend it to Rin~
Momo: For sure! I can bring some right NOW!
Rin: Hey, cut it out you guys! Sousuke, you bastard…
Sousuke: Hey, it’ll be great!
Rin: Sou~su~ke!
Momo: HERE YOU GO! ‘Savor the feelings of stag beetles, a thick and fine sugar honey drink’ By Second Gold Sweets’ YO HERE YOU GO RIN-SENPAI!
Rin: STOPPPPPP!!!!!!!

THIS IS SO CUTE DOTING BOYFRIEND SOUSUKE IS SO ADORABLE AND TOTALLY FLIRTING WITH RIN AND MOMO AND NITORI AND AHHH! also, the audio cuts off at the end, so if anyone has the full version of this track, please let me know!

The real reason Rin was nervous to share a bed with Haru

(Ha I should go to bed)

I’m kind of mad at all the people that are reducing ep 12 to shit writing…

aobasluttygaki:

Everyone is freaking out about how ‘sudden’ Haru’s change of heart is and I think they’re failing to realize something pretty important. Haru swimming professionally is something that’s been discussed since the beginning of the season, so its obviously something he was thinking about.

He probably didn’t have this HUGE sour taste in his mouth for competitive swimming, it was likely just one or two things stressing him out that he couldn’t get out of his head. If he hated competitive swimming so much, he wouldn’t have done it since he was a child, and then again in highschool. Its obviously something he enjoys, the context of adulthood was just making the whole thing stressful for him.

And I know everyone is like “wtf shiny pool, thats what changed his mind?”

NO. IT WAS NOT THE POOL. IT WAS HARU BEING GIVEN A CALM OPTION TO SWIM NEXT TO PROFESSIONAL SWIMMERS. He made the conscious choice to do so, thereby eliminating his stress.

Then, seeing the really nice Australian swimmer, Haru was able to see someone who is genuinely happy in his career path and obviously loves to swim.

image

HARU’S REALISATION FADES FROM THE SWIMMER DIVING, NOT FROM LOOKING AT THE POOL.

PLEASE DO NOT REDUCE IT TO THAT.

SEEING OTHERS SWIM IS A VERY PROFOUND EXPERIENCE FOR HIM AND THAT IS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE WRITING.


Sometimes seeing something like that (if you have an emotional attachment to the action) really can make you snap into a certain mindset, especially when its the first time you’ve been able to look at a situation without the weight of stress. Furthermore, I don’t think Haru is so much ABSOLUTELY sure that he will be happy as much as a competitive swimmer as much as he now knows that it is POSSIBLE and he was able to see that the world like Rin does.

HIS PROBLEM HAS NOT BEEN MAGICALLY FIXED, what has happened is that Haru now feels he has a chance. To me thats actually pretty profound…

Them: I don't think kids should be exposed to gay relationships.
You: Why not?
Them: It's introducing children to sexuality! They're too young for that!
You: So when a prince and princess kiss in a Disney movie, are they introduced to sexuality? When the prince and the princess get married and have a child, is that introducing your child to sexuality?
Them: NO! But if they see a man and a man, or a woman and a woman together... they're going to start asking questions! Like how a man and a man can... you know, do anything together.
You: You think the only thing people think when they see a gay couple is "I wonder how they have sex"? Furthermore, you think a CHILD is going to even know what that means? When the prince and the princess kiss, does your 4 year old daughter ask, "mommy, how do people have intercourse"? No. She just sees two people in love. If you remember when you were a kid, you probably didn't think about sex every time you saw two people happy together.
Them: But it'll bring up all kinds of questions, it'll confuse my child!
You: Then be a fucking parent and explain it to your child. The only question that might be brought up is "mom, why don't you want gay people to be happy?". And when you don't have a good answer for that question, you can look your child in the eye and say "It's because I'm a bigot".
