I want to be the first person on the moon to shoot a sniper rifle at earth and hit a wasp nest. my whole life so far is leading up to that moment
are you a boy? your clothes are boy clothes.
are you a girl? your clothes are girl clothes.
are you outside the binary of boy and girl? so are your clothes.
did someone just tell you your clothes don’t match your gender identity? they are a trashcan and their clothes are trashcan clothes.
Or in the words of Eddie Izzard..
Because this cannot be reblogged enough.
Screaming silently in adoration
Anonymous said: I am confused with yourlog cause I thought you are HaruRin shippers, yet you're devastated with makoto and Haruka fight. That's an end card right there. Everybody know they gonna break up, and in the end this is the beginning for Rin and Haru, so be happy
Hey there, anon. I have to admit my first reaction to this was a heartfelt “?????????????”. But I am going to put that aside and respect the fact that you wanted to ask this of me directly, and therefore give you an honest answer:
I’m happy, because I personally believe Haruka and Rin love one another, and by going to Australia together we’ll finally get to see them actually be with each other (for what appears to be more interaction than the entirety of Seasons 1 and 2 put together).
I am devastated, because I personally believe Haruka and Makoto love one another, and they’ve just had a tough, albeit entirely necessary argument that will shape the foundation of their relationship for the rest of their lives.
Just because I personally view only one of these relationships as romantic and/or potentially sexual, does not mean either love is any less important.
I know that fandoms tend to operate on some backwards ass dudebro logic that shipping equals wanting two characters to be sufficient on each other alone, but that’s not how I roll. Some people might even think I’m not “allowed” to be heartbroken, but as one of the biggest Harurin shippers on this side of the galaxy, I’d honestly be more worried if I wasn’t upset. To me, Haruka doesn’t only exist in relation to Rin, but as a person with his own life and relationships, all of which define who he is; out of all of those, Makoto is indisputably the most important. This is why episode 11 had to happen in the first place – in order to grow up, Haruka needed to understand that Makoto has his own life, too. Yet as much as that process is necessary and unavoidable, it can also be incredibly painful to go through, which is why I am still so emotionally volatile on their behalf.
But it’s not a “beginning for Rin and Haru.” It’s merely a beginning for Haru, and a stronger, more mature relationship between him and Makoto. Not only were the circumstances born out of Makoto’s sincere love for Haruka, but they simply care about each other too much to be broken. Seriously, if by some bizarro mutant magic Makoto disappeared into Tokyo and/or Haruka and Rin never came back from Australia, I’d consider it the worst possible ending –why in the name of all that’s holy would I be happy about Haruka losing someone he loves?
(Moreover, even if we ignored the honest to god fact that there are no ships on this show besides friendship, to think Haruka and Rin could even sustain a relationship without Makoto at this point in their teens is highly debatable to begin with. They’re notorious for misunderstanding one another out of insecurities and pride, which is why if Haruka and Rin do end up sharing the same future prospects one way or another, they have to learn not to rely on Makoto so much to sort out their shit. But hey, I guess that’s what Australia might be for.)
At the end of the day, though, Haruka and Makoto aren’t going to “break up”. They had a fight, because they’re best friends. Friends fight. But as Season 1 ought to have illustrated by now, sometimes our most important relationships? Are completely worth fighting for.
