Authors Note: It’s been a while since I wrote something fluffy for the wonderful Matsuoka siblings. Super special thank you to anonymous cutie and akeemi-chan for the requests!
So, this episode broke me.
But I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one. Solidarity for everyone still crying and/or staring at their computer in shocked disbelief over this episode ohHHH MY GOD.
Anyway, it sounds like the fandom’s imploding and I have a LOT of thoughts about what just happened, so HERE WE GO
To summarise beforehand: why I think Haru’s breakdown has been a long time coming, why I think Rin was right to go after him, why I think this scene BREAKS MY HEART. This is NOT a post babying Haru for what he did NOR is it a post demonizing Rin for his reactions.
One of the greatest commentaries on the newest episode. Very insightful.
I would especially reccomend reading this to those of you who still feel like babying Haru or demonizing Rin, or in any way see fit to hate one of them for the interaction. Hopefully it will help you see the situation in a different light.
