Grounds for Divorce by Yutaan Grounds for Divorce by Yutaan
I LOVE... COFFEE SHOP AUs... SO MUCH...!
bytheway I don't actually drink coffee


A bunch of swimming anime doodles based on this fic ( archiveofourown.org/works/9662… ), chronicling the adventures of Matsuoka Rin, a dude who wants A) people to just make his damn drink right and also B) perhaps ask the hot barista for his phone number (if he is not too busy or is not dating that tall sweetheart-looking guy or thinks that guys who have really specific drink orders are jerks or anything like that okay) (please date me) (i like your face) (you are the only person in this town who can make a decent soy latte)


[EDIT] Now with a Part II! yutaan.deviantart.com/art/Grou…

So.. this might be turning into a fanfic at some point if I get bored X'D
I'm getting withdrawals because season 2 is a year away. TT.TT'
Love the art by the way. That pointy-teeth-grin slayed me X'D

Ah, great! ^_^ I have to point out, though - these are actually alreadybased on a fanfic, linked in the artist-note and found here: archiveofourown.org/works/9662… . (I think it's based off a fill in the kinkmeme...? But I'm not sure about that.) But there are never enough cute coffeeshop AUs in the world, so if you do end up writing one, that would be wonderful! :D

Ah the fic is awesome XD There are indeed not enough coffeeshop AUs in the world though, so some kind of fluff oneshot is going to happen (I have too many fellow free fans IRL who are starbucks obsessed XD)

Yeah! I'm looking forward to more chapters! (I want more Makoto... and characters chatting about their lives outside the cafe... and Rin trying REALLY HARD to ask for Haru's number and failing spectacularly because I have never understood the idea that Rin is A Very Smooth Dude? Rin gets so emotional that he forgets how to walk, Rin calls his coach Mom, Rin makes weird faces trying to not bite his own tongue with his crazy-ass shark teeth when he talks??? Rin is... the opposite of Smooth....)

I want the brother thing explained, certainly. And lives outside the cafe would be decidedly interesting to see~
What? Where on earth have you seen the idea that Rin is a Very Smooth Dude? Please show me so I may point and laugh disbelievingly at my screen. None of the boys are smooth. None of them. They're all too painfully adorkable, and we love them the way they are in any case. <3

Yeah! I get the sense that their lives are quite different, in this AU, from how they are in canon? The fact that they weren't all friends as children is a HUGE difference, of course, since that essentially shapes the entire canon narrative, both book-wise and series-wise. I want to... know... why...!!!

Mostly there is just a lot of fanart and some fics with Rin being Super Experienced and Suave In Matters of the Sex and what's more, nonchalant about the whole thing and I'm just over here like No. Fics where Rin is TERRIBLE at sex. Fics where Rin is self-conscious about his teeth. Fics where Rin has never kissed anyone in his life (except maybe Haru?? Once??? MANY YEARS AGO, LAUGHED IT OFF AS A JOKE [it wasn't a joke]). Naw, guys, naw. Rin might pretend to be totally chill about the whole thing, but if you know him well enough to be dating him you can just see the HOLY SHIT WHAT DO I - HOW - OH MY GOD - WHERE AM I ALLOWED TO PUT MY HANDS??? sort of seeping out through his beautiful loser face. HE DOESN'T WANT TO FUCK IT UP.

I know right?? There's no *before* comparison for Rin after all, and I think that makes a big difference...

The more you talk about it the less good I see him being at initiating any kind of sex. XD although to be honest that pretty much applies to all of the Free! boys. Gou is probably the only character with any ability to remain coherent and aware of what they're supposed to be doing for any base ever. XD

:chinhands: I wanna read more of it~ I keep coming up with things I want to happen in that fic, stuff I want to have happened in everyone's past before they met, what Rin in particular was doing! (Instead of... writing a fic myself.... Ahahaha.........)

I think he'd initiate sometimes! But always with this edge of hesitancy, of not being able to do it without some false bravado. Masi [ archiveofourown.org/users/masi… ] actually writes some of my favorite Rin in that respect - like, he's clearly okay with initiating certain things ("HEY GUESS WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE SEX IN THIS OUTDOOR WATER GARDEN RIGHT NOW"), but there's always this bit of uncertainty ("Can we hold hands? He doesn't like PDA. Fuck, does holding hands even count as - fuck. Maybe we could... like... link pinkies? On the train? Nobody's looking...." :touches pinkies: "WOW HANDTOUCHING WOW :heart does dubstep:"). It's pretty different from being Suave and Experienced. Rin Matsuoka is permanently stuck as a lovestruck twelve-year-old, is basically how I feel about it. (Except not really, because actual 12-year-old Rin had infinitely more game than 17-year-old Rin.)

And OH MAN YES, GOU IS THE ONLY ONE IN THE CAST WITH GAME. GOU IS ON TOP OF THIS. Gou surveys her (muscular, incredibly good-looking) situation and gleefully lays out an attack plan. GET IT GIRL
