Wind Waves omake: easter eggs + writing OST

image

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.

YELLS A LOT
I WOULD TOO IF I SAW YOUR FACE
oh i love love love this. ///right on point///.
thanks! i mean it’s nothing people haven’t been saying a hundred times over but i guess some things bear repeating haha
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…
i think that often ends up being the case with ships that operate on a fundamental conflict – some people will be turned off by it, and some people will find it fascinating precisely because of it. the important point is to understand the origin of that conflict, though, and how it manifests itself as and why. i mean, it still won’t –and doesn’t have to– ping as romantic on everyone’s scale (not to mention sometimes the execution just lacks the intended punch), but understanding what drives characters to act a certain way helps understand people who relate to those emotions and/or view them as intriguing. i personally am drawn to themes of responsibility that come with having so much power over someone, and how we choose and make mistakes but also choose to  make amends in the end. like you said, the balance between it being so easy to misunderstand, but also reaching out for one another in spite of it.

Yooo so I noticed my dash exploded with reblogs of these old things again, and I remembered I had an unfinished draft of one in my photoshop folder… so I figured, why not finish it? Who knows, I might be inspired to do more again sometime when I feel like actually being funny, but have some sibling love in the meantime.

This is for icecreambat, a scene from the next chapter of Wind Waves. Since the actual chapter is not finished yet, you can think of it as a preview for what’s gonna happen (ie. finally some action, I’m only here for boys making out etc).
Sobbb Airin sorry for not being better at art, I wish I could draw you more pictures of your fics (even if they’re not always about my ships).

so in case you don&#8217;t know what bffs are made of WELL SIT DOWN SON AND LET ME TELL YOU
they listen to you rant about plots for fics that aren&#8217;t halfway done
they proofread those fics even when it&#8217;s not about their damn ship
they read those fics even when there&#8217;s no porn
THEY DRAW YOU GUYS MAKING OUT
BOOM

Reading your meta, I couldn't help but think in the fence scene and Haruka saying 'what a pain in the ass'. We know he had his reasons, in the stage directions of this scene, they even pointed out that Haru is (thinking?) like "I refuse to be twisted around his little fingers anymore." what says A LOT and it’s pretty relevant to this topic because (…)

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.
