ay yo homeboy looks like sharkweek
And now, whether anyone actually gives a shit or not, I promised some omake crap regarding Wind Waves; the first part will feature some inside jokes and other similar details in the chapters themselves, and the second part features an unofficial OST which basically stands for some of the main songs I’ve listened to while writing (for someone as music obsessed as me, this actually means a lot).
Plus, I decided to throw some shout outs at the end for the people who deserve them – rest assured all of you do, but there’s a few in specific I wanted to mention lest I forget. so.
(translation NO ID DINFDSM NTRKNOT KNOW HOLYFUKDCDI SHITIRJIK)
if there’s one thing i want in my life it’s that dmmd voice announcer guy shouting the names of all my friends every time i run into them
YELLS A LOT
oh i love love love this. ///right on point///.
oh yes, and I wonder if it’s weird that somehow the reason why I ship them is the same why I understand people who don’t, while it fascinates me how much they affect each other we know it can be very negative in certain circumstances so because of how easy is for them to misunderstand the other, but still they would try to reach each other.. so as powerful as it sounds (the title of that meta) how easy it’d be to destroy each other…
at least you think too highly of yourself, there’s no way the first you’ll think if someone (who you don’t know the effect you have on them and after you said you can’t move on) say those words to you, is precisely that they are feeling /that way/. It’s more likely you’ll think they’re taunting you. On the other hand, Rin acting like he only cares about swimming doesn’t help at all so put 2 and 2 together and you have complicated losers misunderstanding everything orz.
Yeah, I know people who are driven to annoyed frustration by these two because they’re just so stupid and headstrong in all the similar ways, which makes their whole conflict both completely ridiculous and completely human. After all, the fence scene is the point where Haruka’s just like “f this shit” and goes back to hermit mode after his efforts at reaching out only seem to aggravate Rin further; likewise, once Rin repeatedly fails to gauge any reaction out of Haruka (during their race, during the fence scene etc), he just resorts so even more antagonism since it’s all he has left. Then again, all of that is what this post is basically all about anyway (so I won’t bore you with repetition here) – I think it’s a perfect example of a sitution where we get so wound up by what we fear is taking place (also because we’re often simply too used to interpreting things from a very limited viewpoint) that we completely miss the signs proving the opposite.
