Welcome to the 2017 Tachibana Makoto Birthday Fanworks Exchange!

This is the fifth annual event celebrating our favorite Iwatobi captain & backstroker. :D

The exchange is open to art, comics, fic, and manips centered around Makoto. Despite the name, fanworks don’t have to be birthday-themed. All romantic pairings (het/slash/other; twosome/threesome/moresome), platonic pairings (with friends/family) and non-pairings (Makoto alone or with animals) are welcome. ♥♥♥

A special note: we would like to stay out of any and all shipping wars. To that end, we ask that you kindly refrain from requests or fills that involve hate or harm for any canon character, including character bashing (but the kink meme is always open for all your needs!). Thank you for helping us keep fandom a happy place!

This challenge runs on Japan Standard Time.

Welcome to the Matching Requests Info Post for the 2017 Tachibana Makoto Birthday Fanworks Exchange!

Please do not sign up for Phase 2 unless you signed up through AO3 for Phase 1, as we will be unable to match you. If you missed Phase 1 sign ups, please consider becoming a pinch hitter (we'd love to have you!)

Phase 2 is open from September 18 through the end of September 26 JST (countdown clock | what time is that for me?).


HOW MATCHING REQUESTS/ASSIGNMENT CLAIMING WORKS

We're using an "assignment claiming" style of matching for this exchange.

Prompts are listed at this post, grouped by prompter/requester and with the name removed to assure anonymity.

Using the Matching Form below, please list the Assignment IDs of all assignments with at least one prompt you're able to do. You do not need to indicate assignments you can't take; if you don’t have a match from your list, we’ll contact you at the email associated with your AO3 account to work something out.

MATCHING REQUESTS/ASSIGNMENT CLAIMING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Please browse through the requests HERE and decide which ones you're interested in and/or able to do, then list them by the Assignment ID in the "Assignment Requests" section of the matching form.
  • All prompts by the same participant are considered to be a single assignment. However, you only have to do one prompt to fulfill the assignment—so you only need to like one of a participant's prompts to list them in this section.
  • Please list all the assignments for which you can do at least one prompt. The form has categories, but feel free to add some if you need more -- e.g. "most preferred", "next preferred", "also possible", "possible if absolutely necessary," etc.
  • Ranked lists are welcome and definitely be taken into account, although we can't guarantee you'll get your first choice.
  • There is no maximum limit on choices. In fact, the more Assignment IDs you list, the better!
  • If you're willing to take any assignment, please indicate "All" here. (So much love for you if you do this, because you are the ones who make matching really work; but please don't say "all" unless you mean it, because we really do want everyone to get an assignment they like!)

MATCHING REQUESTS FORM

 Name (the AO3 pseudonym you signed up with):

Assignment Requests (please list the ID# for ALL assignments for which you can do AT LEAST ONE PROMPT in whichever category below is most applicable)
- Prefer to do:
- Also able to do:



MATCHING REQUESTS FAQ

1. Do I have to do this part?

Yes, this is an official part of the sign up. If you don't complete this step, we don't have any way of knowing what you would and would not be willing to do, so unfortunately we will have to drop you from the exchange.
 

2. For the list of prompts I want to take (the "Assignment Requests” list), is it possible to state a preference level with them?  For instance, a list of prompts I especially want to do and a second list of prompts I would still be interested in taking but not as interested as the first group?

Yes! You can divide your list into “most preferred” and “next preferred” tiers, with a list within each tier. Whether or not you choose to use tiers, you can also rank-order your list (with your first choice at the front/top of the list).


3. Can I just tell you what I do and don’t like in general?

Short answer: No. Please do not do this.

Long answer: Well, that would have been one way to go—but it would have relied on some mindreading and guesswork on my part. I thought it would give a happier outcome if everyone got to see the exact, specific prompts and make decisions based on the details, since I’m pretty sure you all know yourselves better than I do. :D

To that end, please list Assignment ID#s in your reply; please do not make generalizations of the kinds of things you do or don’t like. (Experience tells me we’ll all be happier this way; in the past, I’ve done what I thought was a perfect match based on the info and generalizations, only to have the participant drop out because they hated the assignment. orz)
 

4. Am I guaranteed something from my list?

I will do the best I can to give you something off your list. The more choices you list, the easier and happier things will be (for you, for other participants, and for the matching coordinator!). If I can't, I will contact you through AO3 to work something out. I've never had to do this but, just in case, I don't want to make promises I may not be able to deliver on. Your understanding is greatly appreciated!


5. I don't understand what to do.

Just shoot me an email and I'll walk you through it.



Thanks, everyone! Have fun looking through all the fantastic prompts. :D
makobdayexchange: (2017)

This year, the Makoto Birthday Fanworks Exchange is running as a prompts-based exchange.

Please note that an AO3 account is required but a Dreamwidth account is not required.

A prompts-based exchange has two phases:
  • Phase 1: Participants sign up on AO3, making prompt requests. The prompts may as specific or as general as the participant wants to make them.

  • Phase 2: The prompts are posted on Dreamwidth, grouped by participant/prompter and with the name removed to assure anonymity when choosing and matching. Participants browse the Dreamwidth post and leave a comment (screened) with their AO3 name and a list of the prompts they are interested and/or willing to take.
Matching is done manually by the exchange coordinator based on the lists submitted in Phase 2, and assignments are sent out through AO3.

Phase 1 is open September 3 - 17. (@ AO3) — countdown clock to the end of Phase 1 signups

Phase 2 will run September 18 - 26. (@ DW) — countdown clock to the end of Phase 2 signups

Assignments for the 2017 Makoto Birthday Exchange are due on November 7 JST.

::General Notes::

You are only required to fill one of the requests in your assignment in order to complete the assignment. You are welcome to do more than one request or multiple fills for the same request, if you have time and interest (optional; not required).

Please do not talk publicly about what you're working on until after works are live on AO3! It's absolutely okay to say you got your assignment and other general kinds of things, but it would be great if you don't give away whose assignment you got or which prompt you're doing. Some of the fun is the element of surprise, after all (finding out who created something for you and which of your requests they chose to do). :D

If you have any questions for your recipient, please contact us. We'll relay the message to your recipient and get back to you with their response as soon as possible.

Thank you for your interest in being a pinch hitter for the 2017 Tachibana Makoto Birthday Exchange! Here's some info for you:

What is a pinch hitter?

When a participant drops out for whatever reason, a pinch hitter is someone who steps up and accepts the assignment in their place (sometimes on very short notice). Pinch hitters are absolutely essential to the success of any exchange.

How does pinch hitting work?

Unlike regular assignments, pinch hits are not automatically assigned. Whenever one comes up, it goes out for claiming to all potential pinch hitters on a mailing list. If you’re interested in taking the assignment, you reply to the email. If you're not interested, you don't have to do anything. Pinch hits are assigned on a first come, first served basis.

Do I have to be a participant in the exchange in order to be a pinch hitter?

Definitely not! We'll take anyone who's interested.

So then, how can I join the pinch hitter mailing list?
Leave a comment here with your name and a reliable email address you check regularly. Comments are screened and your email will be kept confidential.

Do I need an account anywhere in particular to participate?
Yes—the exchange is running through AO3 this year, so in order to accept a pinch hit assignment you will need an AO3 account. If you don't have one, you can go here to request a free account or let us know in your comment and we'll set you up with one.

And how much do you love me for signing up to be a pinch hitter?
A lot. So flippin' much, you don't even know!

Just in case you missed it above: to sign up as a pinch hitter, please leave a comment here (all comments are screened) with the following:
  • your name (whatever you want me to call you; including your AO3 name is optional at this point)
  • a reliable email address you check regularly
Thank you! ♥

this post. If you haven't already, please read that post before coming here.

Please note that you should list ALL assignments for which you can do AT LEAST ONE prompt. The matching form has categories for "prefer to do" and "also able to do." You are also encouraged to use ranked lists.

The matching coordinator is going to do their very best to give everyone something from the Prefer section, but everyone's flexibility in also using the Able to Do section will be super important in allowing the exchange to run. 💚

Have fun!



ASSIGNMENT ID 01

Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: T - E
  • Pairing: Shigino Kisumi/Tachibana Makoto; see also details and notes
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Nanase Haruka, Shigino Kisumi
  • Details: In Tokyo, Makoto is seduced by Kisumi while everyone else thinks he and Haru belong together. Kisumi has a bad reputation when it comes to relationships and everyone is against his romantic involvement with Makoto, but Makoto sees something in him the others can't.
  • Notes: About MakoHaru in this, it's up to you whether they are friends or have been something more, I just wanted to clarify that in the prompt them being suitable for each other is what everyone else thinks should happen or has assumed that is happening, given how close they are. I don't mind heavy angst, sex or other mature/triggering themes, it's up to you what you'll include. If it's a fanfic, I don't have a preference on the ending either, it doesn't have to be happy. Additional side-chars are welcome. Please NO mpreg, NO genderbend chars.
Type: Comic or Fic
Rating: T - E
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Gou/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Gou, Matsuoka Rin, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: AU where Rin is an emperor, rumoured incapable of having his own children, who despite being very overprotective towards his sister Gou, has no option but to wed her with a man of imperial/noble line so his House will have an heir. Makoto, coming from a high-ranked branch of the same Imperial family and generally a tame and loyal to the Empire young man looks like the perfect candidate in Rin's eyes. However there are two problems the fiery redhead isn't aware of: A) His sister is already in love with the head of the palace guard, Sousuke, who grew up inside the palace but his parents were commoners, thus he is unsuitable for a suitor and B) Makoto himself has been secretly in love with Rin for years. With Rin in total oblivion seeking to expedite the wedding as there are rumours of an imminent war with rebelling countries, Makoto has to find a solution that will lead both Gou and himself to happiness, without distabilizing the Empire. Something that isn't easy though since being openly homosexual is frowned upon and causing a scandal within the Imperial family can be punishable by law, despite the fact that Rin's impotence is a lie to avoid a marriage and cover his own homosexuality.
  • Notes: If instead of an Empire, you prefer the story set in a Kingdom, a Sultanate etc. that's fine too. I don't mind heavy angst, sex or other mature/triggering themes, it's up to you what you'll include. I don't have a preference on the ending either, it doesn't have to be happy. Additional side-chars are welcome. Please NO mpreg, NO genderbend chars.
Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: T - E
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Gou/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Gou, others (see details)
  • Details: Underage pregnancy while Gou is still at school and Makoto has just graduated and must move out to Tokyo. Extra kudos if they also have to deal with keeping it a secret from Makoto's traditional family and Gou's overprotective brother.
  • Notes: The "Extra kudos if..." part isn't necessary, I just figured to elaborate in making it more complicated, should you wish to explore this prompt. I don't mind heavy angst, sex or other mature/triggering themes, it's up to you what you'll include. If it's a fanfic, I don't have a preference on the ending either, it doesn't have to be happy. Additional side-chars are fine. Please NO mpreg, NO genderbend chars.
Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: T - E
  • Pairing: Shigino Kisumi/Tachibana Makoto, Shigino Hayato/Tachibana Ran
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Shigino Hayato, Shigino Kisumi, Tachibana Ran
  • Details: Fast forward to the future, Kisumi and Makoto meet again in the event of Ran's engagement to Hayato. Their meeting will ignite old flames from the time they secretly shared a few nights together, but will also bring to the surface their different views on their siblings' relationship: Kisumi's POV, whose ulterior motive was to see Makoto again and was always supportive of his brother dating Ran, and Makoto's POV, who feels uncomfortable with this development and is worried that rekindling their old fling will only complicate things for their siblings' new life.
  • Notes: I don't mind Ren showing up as well, however the one in relationship with Hayato must be Ran, as I enjoy her personality more. I don't mind heavy angst, sex or other mature/triggering themes, it's up to you what you'll include. If it's a fanfic, I don't have a preference on the ending either, it doesn't have to be happy. If it's art, then the part about their different views on the engagement can be ommitted. Additional side-chars are fine. Please NO mpreg, NO genderbend chars.
Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: M - E
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Gou/Shigino Kisumi/Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Gou, Nanase Haruka, Shigino Kisumi, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: Sousuke visits Kisumi in Tokyo and Gou finds the perfect chance to tag along for some shopping etc. in the capital. Kisumi insists on surprising Makoto and Haru who both live nearby, so in the evening all three end up at Makoto's place. It's getting late, alcohol is involved, Haruka leaves cause he has to wake up early for training, Kisumi is a little bit too frisky around Makoto, Sousuke has always been jealous of that awesome Tachibana back, Gou can't believe her luck all these muscles around and Rin miles away, they all 4 end up a tangle of limbs. Extra kudos 1 (comedy): Haruka wakes up the next morning and for the first time in all his years, Makoto hasn't come to pick him up. So he goes to his place to wake him up instead and hilarity ensues when Makoto who has a hangover must find all kinds of excuses for what the hell happened last night and why everyone's semi naked. Extra kudos 2 (drama): They wake up the next morning and have to deal with the consequences of their actions. Especially when they learn that Rin might be landing at Tokyo at noun.
  • Notes: Extra Kudos 1 and 2 are optional, just in case you don't want this to be yet another pwp concept. I don't mind heavy angst, sex or other mature/triggering themes, it's up to you what you'll include. If it's a fanfic, I don't have a preference on the ending either, it doesn't have to be happy. Additional side-chars are fine. Please NO mpreg, NO genderbend chars.

ASSIGNMENT ID 02

Type: Art or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: Arabian AU, where Sousuke is an official of Sultan Rin’s military and is assigned a mission to track down a band of thieves. The mission takes him out into the desert, where his men turn on him. (Maybe his second in command was hoping to get his job, maybe they just did it because they didn’t like him, the reason is up to you.) He’s left to die in the desert, badly wounded and completely stripped of materials. By some stroke of luck, (or, more accurately, a stroke of irony,) one of the thieves that Sousuke was tracking ends up rescuing him - Makoto. Sousuke’s nursed back to health under Makoto’s care, and the two fall in love.
  • Notes: Please no non-con, a/b/o, daddy kink, seme/uke dynamics, or mpreg. NSFW isn’t necessary, but if you’d like to, by all means! I’m not picky about bed roles, but top!Makoto is always a rare gem with this ship. It's also worth mentioning that I don't mind angst in the slightest, so if that's how you want to wrap things up, I won't be at all disappointed or get on your case. That wouldn't be very fair of me to do, since I'm pretty blatantly setting you up for some angst. :'D
Type: Art or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Gou/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Gou
  • Details: Post!ES and post!college (for both of them.) Gou and Makoto’s friendship has really developed over the years spent in university, despite being long-distance buddies who have to communicate primarily through social media. Makoto moves back to Iwatobi shortly after Gou finishes up school. The two spend a lot of time together, and both gradually come to realize that they have romantic feelings for each other. How they get together (and IF they get together,) is up to you. Bonus points for awkward attempts at flirting and Gou with short hair!
  • Notes: Again, please don’t feel obligated to include anything NSFW, but if you’d like to go that route, I’d love to see Gou taking charge.
Type: Art or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: Future Fish AU, but with Fem!Sousuke and Fem!Makoto. That’s about the extent of my requirements for this specific prompt. Pretty much anything within this universe would be absolutely amazing.
  • Notes: I feel like this really should go without saying, but please don’t change soumako’s professions from police officer and firefighter. NSFW isn’t necessary, but if you’d like to, I’m definitely not about to complain.
Type: Art or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Shigino Kisumi/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Shigino Kisumi
  • Details: Actor!AU. Kisumi has been a household name since he was acting as a little kid. Makoto, on the other hand, stumbled rather blindly into fame, but has been rising through the ranks at a dizzying speed. The two develop a friendly rivalry after Makoto begins scoring roles that Kisumi was expected to take.
  • Notes: In the case that you decide to write nsfw, I have no preference on bedroom roles for this ship, so as long as you steer clear of daddy kink, non-con, seme/uke dynamics, and a/b/o, you're good :D
Type: Art or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto with any of: Matsuoka Rin, Nanase Haruka, Shigino Kisumi, or Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, see details/pairing
  • Details: In the case that none of the prompts I've already given appeal to you, you're welcome to choose a different ship! I ship Makoto with all of the third years + Gou, so as long as he's paired with someone from that group, I'll be more than happy. Really what I want most out of this exchange is to see Makoto being supported and loved, and for whoever fills my prompts to have fun. If that's not possible with what I've listed, then you're free to deviate a little. Some extra ideas: camping trips, road trips, adopting pets, apartment hunting, Makoto singing, Makoto playing instruments, the main four swimming together, movie nights, any character getting a haircut/makeover, slightly embarrassing meet-cutes, etc. Just give me dumb, sickeningly fluffy scenarios with Makoto having fun, and I'll love it.
  • Notes: None


ASSIGNMENT ID 03


Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: If you'd like some prompts you could try fantasy or sci-fi, but I'll leave it up to you
  • Notes: None
Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: K - T
  • Pairing: Hazuki Nagisa & Nanase Haruka & Ryugazaki Rei & Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: I'd like something platonic (I only really ship SouMako) but something with the four friends would be cute. You could go fluffy if you'd like.
  • Notes: None
Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto & any Free! character(s)
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, any Free! character(s)
  • Details: I'll leave this last prompt to you (writer's perogitive). Again, my only request is that you make it more friendships than romantic relationships, but if you want to do SouMako I won't say no ;P
  • Notes: None

ASSIGNMENT ID 04

Type: Art
Rating: unspecified
  • Pairing: see below (nature of relationship unspecified)
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Azumane Asahi (Haikyuu!!)
  • Details: I just want to see my two precious bbies cuddling. I think Asahi would be the little spoon and Makoto would be the big soon. It could also be cool to see maybe Asahi trying to teach Makoto how to spike and maybe Makoto trying to show Asahi how to swim
  •  Notes: None
Type: Fic
Rating: unspecified
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin & Nanase Haruka & Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin, Nanase Haruka
  • Details: I need some good old bonding feels with these three. Rin and Haru fighting for attention from Makoto and these boys just laughing and being swimming dorks
  • Notes: None

  • Pairing: see below (nature of relationship unspecified)
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Sora Sosuke (Yandere Simulator)

  • Notes: None

ASSIGNMENT ID 05

Type: Fic
Rating: K - M
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: Something where Sousuke sticks around after high school when Rin goes to Australia, and originally only talks to Makoto and the rest of Iwatobi so he can talk to Rin more often (group calls, Rin tends to visit everyone as a group when he is back in Japan, etc) but as they get to know each other better he starts getting pretty close to Makoto, and oops a crush on the only person in their weird group of friends who can actually kiss him without tiptoes.
  • Notes: Smut is ok but not absolutely necessary- only if it works! and I love fluff so if you can make it work with Sousuke's personality that's an excellent alternative.
Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: K
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin
  • Details: Something fluffy that explains why everyone was in the sailor uniform from this spoon2Di poster (maybe a school event or a play?).
  • Notes: Nothing too explicit, I mainly want to see Rin getting flustered by how good Makoto looks while dealing with his own uniform too!
Type: Fic
Rating: K - M
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Gou & Tachibana Makoto OR Matsuoka Gou/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Gou, others optional (see notes)
  • Details: Makoto and Kou seem like the most responsible members of their friend group, and I want to see what would happen if they were friends beyond just "my childhood friend's kid sister." Can be platonic or romantic (hell they can both be gay and bond through mutual queerness, honestly that would be great) but lots of small interactions, late nights and weird conversation topics, and them slowly growing closer together.
  • Notes: Background interactions with Haru and Rin and how they react to their friendship is up to you, but nothing overly hostile unless it ultimately resolves- I'm not looking for angst!

ASSIGNMENT ID 06

Type: Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke, others optional (see notes)
  • Details: "Surviving a disaster" AU. Think "The Day After Tomorrow" or "2012" for the tone I'm looking for. Those over the top Ronald Emmerich disaster movies. Survival during the event, making their way to safety, protecting each along the way, a tiresome and perilous journey, a night on the road, any snippet or frame of time within that context that strikes you.Either surviving with only them or with other characters. They can have any sort of backgrounds from average joes with little survival skill and a lot of dumb luck, to (a) pilot(s) making their way to the airport to get a plane and rescue their friends, to scientists stranded with a crucial piece of information that could save thousands of people if they can get it to the right place. Or something else. Your discretion. The journey can bring them closer together, repair a damaged relationship, whatever fits your setting best. I do want character-driven story. Their thoughts, feelings, motivations are all important. However it ends is also up to you, but I do want them on good terms in some way no matter what
  • Notes: Preferred sub-genres: drama, dark humor, action, adventure, angst, hurt/comfort.Strangers to lovers, friends to lovers, or established relationship are all ok. It is important to me that Sousuke and Makoto are equal or comparable in maturity, attitude, and general life experience. They must be adults. Other 3rd years + Gou either heavily involved or just making an appearance or reference is encouraged. Other background relationships involving Gou, Haru, Rin, Nagisa, Momo, or Sei are ok as long as not everyone is shacked up with someone for the sake of it. If in doubt of my ship preferences within these parameters just leave it out, it's not a necessity. Please no: marriage, parenting, aimless and/or excessive fluff and romance, omegaverse, prior relationships with other cast members, other series crossovers, or other series AU
Type: Fic
Rating: T - E
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke, others optional (see notes)
  • Details: Futuristic war AU. Military warfare on the battlefield of your choice as two comrades in arms getting through the day to day. Or fighting for opposite sides, reunited inconveniently. Or decorated leaders with an impossible choice. Or low ranked officers as prisoners of war looking for escape. Up to you who's winning or isn't or if it's even a factor. Etc, etc. I'm open to interpretation as far as the setting details go. I do want character-driven story. Their thoughts, feelings, motivations are all important. Any consequences of war are fair game, but per the event guidelines I'm not calling for excessive torture porn or character death. However it ends is also up to you, but I do want them on good terms in some way no matter what

Please no: marriage, parenting, aimless and/or excessive fluff and romance, omegaverse, prior relationships with other cast members, other series crossovers, or other series AU
Type: Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin & Tachibana Makoto OR Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin, Nanase Haruka, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: Treasure hunter AU. Gen or romance equally ok. Makoto and Rin can either be partners or rivals after the same artifact(s), professionals or amateurs, but must be driven and willing to do whatever it takes to get to their prizes first before looters or other organizations beat them to the punch. I like an element of friction in my MakoRin, whether it be through differences in personalities or goals or whatever, just something to give them a little substance and weight outside their usual balance. I'd like to see some danger or a force working against them that has them thinking on their feet, being resourceful, and lending a sense of urgency to the story. Looking for a more serious tone than a slapstick silly tone but it doesn't need to be direly life or death either. Character-driven story. Their thoughts, feelings, motivations are all important. Definitely try to include other characters, specifically Haru and Sousuke in some capacity.
  • Notes: Preferred sub-genres: drama, dark humor, action, adventure, angst, hurt/comfort. If you go with romance, strangers to lovers, friends to lovers, or established relationship are all ok. If friendship, other background ships including Makoto and Rin are fine (ie, MakoRin friendship focus with side romo SouMako) but definitely not necessary. Other background relationships involving Gou, Haru, Sousuke, Nagisa, Momo, or Sei are ok as long as not everyone is shacked up with someone for the sake of it. If in doubt of my ship preferences within these parameters just leave it out. Please no: marriage, parenting, aimless and/or excessive fluff and romance, omegaverse, other series crossovers, or other series AU.

  • Pairing: Nanase Haruka & Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Nanase Haruka, others optional (see notes)
  • Details: Post-Canon or Future Fish preferred, any other real-world grounded AU is also fine. Mostly an open prompt with the caveat that I’m admittedly picky about MH representation and what I don’t want. I'm specifically looking for heavy emphasis on their relationship/character growth as adult-adults (like, 25+ at least) navigating Realistic Life Obstacles with a nice balance of human-centric feelings such as sarcasm, drama, frustration, and contentment. Basically demonstrate the status of their relationship while being allowed to simultaneously live their own lives. This can be shown through a warm reunion, hardship, trial, a rallying life event, a slow progression over a long period of time, etc. I encourage being creative with it, I like to see other takes than the standard Tokyo checklist on the relationship. Set them apart physically, make them fight, allow them to disagree, have them discover something brand new together, happily FWB, etc.
  • Notes: Preferred sub-genres: introspection, drama, dramedy, angst, hurt/comfort. If you think you know the basics of my characterization preferences, romo MakoHaru is totally fine and encouraged. In which case I would prefer break up and (much later down the line) make up or friends to lovers. Otherwise, other background ships including Makoto and Haru are fine (ie, MakoHaru friendship focus with side romo SouHaru) but definitely not necessary. Other background relationships involving Gou, Rin, Sousuke, Nagisa, Momo, or Sei are ok as long as not everyone is shacked up with someone for the sake of it. If in doubt of my ship preferences within these parameters, just leave it out. Please no: highschool sweethearts, pro!Haru or coach!Makoto (for post-canon I'm interested in a slight diversion and seeing something different), marriage, parenting, aimless and/or excessive fluff and romance, omegaverse, other series crossovers, or other series AU.

  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin
  • Details: College AU, Rin wants to ask Makoto if he can sleep in his room for the night, seeing as his roommate (Whoever you want it to be) is calling their gf/bf over. (if Rin & Makoto are room neighbours is up to you) Makoto only has one bed however, and Rin can either sleep in his bed or on the floor. Makoto wants to stay up late to study (Whatever he's studying) and Rin just wants some damn peace and quiet so he can sleep. Rin and Makoto have perhaps had hidden feelings for a while. (Perhaps the roommate and their partner want to get a lil' funky. A bonus if Makoto and Rin are room neighbours.) (Kinda like an "I want to tell you I like you but my roommate is banging and its making it a little hard for me." Quite literally.)

Queue a drunken Sousuke out on the street on his way home (Or wherever you please) petting said cat. (They're about early twenties here?) Makoto manages to find his cat, after hearing Sousuke speaking/mumbling/trying to start an argument with it. Makoto, upon confrontation, realises that this is the guy from his old school's rival swim team. After some hard persuasion and usage of the majority of his strength, Makoto returns home with his cat, and an almost passed out Sousuke. What happens during the night / the following morning is down to you! (Bonus points if the cat becomes attached to Sousuke)

However, with Sousuke not having a good sense of direction, and neither of them knowing how they even got to Kisumi's place, it's a little difficult. (Whether they know each other well is down to you.) (Also, you can write the threesome part if you'd like *eyes emoji*)

  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin
  • Details: Future Fish AU - Do cops and firefighters have a rivalry or a comradeship? And where does that leave Makoto and Rin? What really matters is that the boys fall in love or are in love. Angst or domestic fluff is welcome. The potential clash or partnership of our feisty and spirited cop Rin and our gentle and brave firefighter Makoto is something I would love to see explored in whatever way the filler finds interesting.

  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin
  • Details: Exploring s2 post-MakoHaru fight Rin and Makoto. It's already canon that Makoto is the one who planned for Rin to bring Haru to Australia, but it's also canon that Rin was the first person Makoto contacted after his fight with Haru by the end of season 2. What does Rin do when Makoto calls with the news of their fight? Do they meet up? Do they talk for hours? Is it forced or natural? Does Rin comfort Makoto or does Makoto hide his feelings like he did in High Speed? Any interpretation is welcome as long as there is some romance between the two. Angst is almost implied but it's a big plus too. Established relationship or budding romance.

  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin
  • Details: The Gay Epiphany, budding romance or unrequited love. If Rin is flight, dreams and cherry blossom petals, then Makoto is roots, stability and Japanese maple leaves. They're worlds different but also strikingly similar, understanding each other and accepting each other in ways unlike any other. Makoto is steady when Rin spreads his wings, an anchor of safety and familarity. Take that away from him and what happens? Does he struggle to keep it or does he let himself fly even further? Open to interpretation. Angst isn't a must but isn't unwelcome, depends on filler's interpretation of the prompt or personal interest. Personally I just like the comparison of Makoto and the stunning, bright red leaves of Japanese maple leaves. Mix them with Makoto and you have Makorin colors ;)

  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: Makoto surprises Sousuke. He is easily seen as docile and meek, a bit of a wuss in most circumstances and Sousuke kind of likes that. It's part of Makoto that he's weak willed and wishy-washy. But then Makoto does something that takes Sousuke by surprise, not necessarily out of character, but something that gives Sousuke a new perspective of Makoto and his personality - he is not always as docile and weak as he likes to appear. (Think a la the OVA's water gun game)
  • Notes: Established relationship or early stages relationship/dating. No yandere!Makoto, please. Angst can be welcomed, but mostly looking for something lighthearted and fun. Make Sousuke do a double take or scream and Makoto cracking up, just no evilness or characters getting hurt, please.

  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: A study in big meaty sandwiches. Each character brings something unique to the triple dynamic. Makoto is soft and gentle, but can be stern and exasperated. Rin is feisty and wild, but is very organised and intelligent. Sousuke is calm and straightforward, but also incredibly selfless and intuitive. What each brings to the table makes them that much more challenging and interesting, compatible in about four different ways. How do they make it work? What kind of dynamic does this lead to? If domestic then how do their lives intermingle? And if high school setting then how do they keep their relationship healthy when two live together and one is a train ride away?
  • Notes: Established poly relationship or entering a poly relationship. Looking for healthy, accepting polyamory - not harem or non/dub-con, nor infidelity or two-timing. Good ol' healthy and consensual poly relationship, please!

Other Sports Anime characters make the most sense but, just in case it doesn't work for you, fusions and AUs are perfectly okay. Kuroko no Basket and Haikyuu!! make the most sense but something crazy like Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin or Voltron: Legendary Defender or Final Fantasy will make me love you for the rest of my life. If you want, I can provide a list of characters from these fandoms that I think would look good with Makoto. In any case...

  • Pairing: Shigino Kisumi/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Shigino Kisumi
  • Details: Literally any Makoto/Kisumi at all would make me happy. For specific prompts, I'm a sucker for the usual "they meet up again a few years after going to uni" deal and see where it goes from there. But Future Fish scenarios with firefighter!Makoto and Yakuza!Kisumi are more than welcome as well. Also, after seeing some posts about Kisumi becoming a real estate agent based on the Take Your Marks trailers I now quite like that, so maybe something with Kisumi helping Makoto get an apartment and they hit it off. But honestly, anything for these two is fine.

  • Pairing: Nanase Haruka/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Nanase Haruka
  • Details: Just any good ol' MakoHaru will be fine for me. I'm a particularly fond of work where they've been together long enough to be comfortably snarky with each other, but at the other end of the spectrum I also love works that force them to get over this psychic connection they think they have and relearn how to communicate with each other, perhaps even after being apart for a while? But honestly, if that's too angsty for you than any general fluff involving them will be more than fine as well. For AUs, I'm a sucker for giant orca merman Makoto with regular human Haru. Splash Free AUs with desert wanderer Haru and merchant Makoto are also great.

  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: Again, any SouMako is good, but like with KisuMako, I particularly like the idea of them meeting up again a few years post-canon and hitting it off. These two are super flexible for AUs, so anything along the lines of Future Fish, Splash Free, Makoto volunteering at an animal shelter that Sousuke wants to adopt a dog from, etc., are totally fine.

Be it all three characters being unattached until they come together or two of them already being in an established relationship that the third comes into (bonus points if KisuMako or KisuHaru are the starting ships that the third character comes into). I'd prefer to avoid too much reference to jealousy or bitterness as well, also a post-canon setting for this ship is my preference. Also, Makoto/Kisumi/Haru/Sousuke is my ultimate OT4, so if you're feeling adventurous you could add Sousuke into the mix as well.

  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke, others optional (see details)
  • Details: Future fish AU: Makoto is trapped in a bank during a robbery, and Officer Yamazaki is the first on the scene. In a fit of stupidity/bravery, Makoto tries to take down the gunman and consequently allows everyone else to escape, but physical fights are not his strong point and he gets knocked out by the gunman/the gun. Hurt/comfort with some humor, maybe Makoto recovering from an injury? Extra kudos if they're strangers before this happens and slowly get to know each other in the process of Sousuke checking in on Makoto every so often to make sure he isn't continuing with that self-sacrificing habit of his. Many bonus points for overbearing boss Seijuro making Sousuke's life hell.

  • Details: AU where Haru, after having a microsleep, crashes into Makoto's car at a petrol station, totaling it completely, and drives off in a panic. When the police (BP for Ssk and Rin) can't do a whole lot about it (despite footage from the gas station's cameras), Makoto takes justice into his own hands and decides to track down the driver of the other car. My only request with this prompt is that Makoto and Haru are treated as individuals, not extensions of each other. I would love a little conflict, a rocky beginning that develops into something smoother (friendship or romance), and also if other cast members are involved (pref Sousuke, Gou, Rin, Nagisa).

  • Notes: Feel free to take any liberties with this, esp if filling with art; basically I'm weak to infatuated pre-relationship MakoRin, so do with that as you will! Any is fine, though I'd prefer it be below explicit.

  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Nanase Haruka/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin, Nanase Haruka
  • Details: Domestic fluff and/or an attempt to go out on a date. I love this ship because I feel like a lot of their interactions would be of a gentler and more romantic kind, so I'd be happy to see anything sweet between the three of them. This could be at home or out in public, and it doesn't necessarily have to be a date, but I'd like for them to be established!
  • Notes: Once again, feel free to take liberties with this! I don't mind something NSFW if that's what you'd prefer to fill, I just ask that you keep it away from anything too intense, i.e. bodily fluids/excrement, daddy kinks, omegaverse, mpreg, etc. I'm comfortable with most other kinks, if they're treated properly!

Something gentler is all I need to be happy, nothing extravagant like confessions or pining needed; just MakoHaru trying to figure out the differences between being friends and being together, and that it's not as easy as it seems.

  • Notes: I've got pretty thick skin when it comes to angst, so if you're choosing a more dramatic cliche to go with, no need to hold back! Once again, I'd just like to stay away from AUs like mpreg or omegaverse; other than that, I'm comfortable with most things!

Party Favors has ended, bringing the 2016 Makoto Birthday Fanworks Exchange to an official close. (Unofficially, the collection remains open for posting… :3)

Thank you again to everyone who participated and/or offered support through comments, reblogs, and likes. ❤

See you next Makoto Birthday Time…?

makobdayexchange: (2016)

Works for the 4th annual Makoto Birthday Exchange are now live!

As you celebrate, we hope you’ll enjoy some of the 29 fics written this year. :D

Thanks as deep and as wide as the ocean to everyone who participated (as a writer, a pinch hitter, and/or a beta) and to all who offered support and encouragement along the way. ❤


And it’s not too late to participate! Party Favors – the bonus round open to everyone – is running through the end of the day after Makoto’s birthday in the last time zone on Earth.

  • Party Favors is optional and open to everyone.
  • Browse the requests here on DW or here on AO3.
  • There is no sign up or claiming. If something catches your eye and you want to do a fill for it, go right ahead!
  • There is no minimum requirement for Party Favors fills.

Full details here.


Happy Makoto’s Birthday, everyone! 💖💝💗
makobdayexchange: (2016)

With just under 24 hours to Makoto’s birthday in Japan, I’m super excited to say that all participants now have a gift. Fantastic job, everyone! (There’s about a day to edit and polish fills before works go live.)

Thank you to all our pinch hitters, even the ones who didn’t end up with an assignment: just knowing you had the exchange’s back on this was a great reassurance. ❤


Party Favors is open until the end of the day after Makoto’s birthday in the last time zone on Earth – which means there are still close to 4 days left in the bonus round!

  • Party Favors is optional and open to everyone.
  • There is no sign up or claiming. If something catches your eye and you want to do a fill for it, go right ahead!
  • Fills should follow the same Guidelines as those for regular assignments, with one exception: There is no minimum requirement for Party Favor fills.
makobdayexchange: (2016)

We are now in the final 24 hours to the November 7 JST deadline! (This applies to the main round only; Party Favors – the bonus round open to everyone – is another story.)

Please note and keep in mind that the the time and date of the deadline may not match the time and date in your own timezone. Every year there is someone who says they didn’t know this, but that will not be accepted as an excuse this year.

So to avoid confusion, please use these links:

NOTE: You will have the time between the deadline and reveals to polish your fill; it only has to be complete by the deadline, not perfect. :D

If you do need to request an extension, please email me. You may ask for an additional 1-2 days; experience has shown that longer extensions usually result in the participant dropping at a late date and a pinch hitter having to work under pressure for a tight deadline. Let’s be as nice as we can to our pinch hitters!

It’s not too late to join as a pinch hitter, btw. In fact, we’d love to have you!

Here are some other useful links:

If you have any questions that aren’t answered at those links, let me know.

Have fun and good luck!

This is a reminder that there are two weeks to the November 7 JST deadline for main round fills. (The deadline for Party Favors – the bonus round open to everyone – is different, of course; more info here.)

We wanted to see how you’re all doing, so here’s a quick survey when you have a chance (it should take less than a minute):

FILL PROGRESS SURVEY

Please be honest with yourself when reponding. This is an opportunity for realistic assessment, so we can make sure there are enough pinch hitters and/or prepare for other possibilities and keep the exchange running smoothly.

If you are requesting an extension, please send that directly to Miaou in addition to filling out the survey. You may ask for an additional 1-2 days; experience has shown that longer extensions usually result in the participant dropping at a late date. (If it helps, keep in mind that you will have the time between the deadline and reveals to polish your fill; it only has to be complete by the deadline, not perfect.)

If you need to drop out for whatever reason, please do so through AO3 as soon as possible, in order to give the pinch hitter who steps in for you a fair amount of time to work on the fill.

Please note and keep in mind that the exchange runs on JST, so the date of the deadline may not match the date in your own timezone. To avoid confusion, please use these links:

countdown clock | time zone converter (use “change your location”)

Other useful links:

If you have any questions that aren’t answered at those links, let me know.

Good luck!

Party Favors is a bonus round for extra gifts. Anyone can do a Party Favors fill. :D

To be clear, there are two types of fills for the Makoto Birthday Exchange:
  • Assignment Fill = Required of participants, open only to signed-up participants
  • Party Favors (Extra) Fill = Optional, open to literally everyone
No sign-up or claiming is required for Party Favors. Everyone is welcome to do a Party Favors fill, whether or not you signed up as an original participant. (You don’t get anything out of doing Party Favors except the joy of making someone happy.)

Party Favor fills have no word count or pixel minimums. They’re just meant to be an extra little treat for the recipient (and a way to do a fill for a prompt you might be in love with but didn’t get assigned, or something for a friend or someone you admire, or for whatever reason you choose). :D

The past two years, we’ve run Party Favors as a bonus round at the end of the exchange. This year, we're running it simultaneously with the main round, with a later deadline than the main round (the day after Makoto's birthday).

In bullet points:

  • Party Favors 2016 runs September 29 - November 18 (one day after Makoto’s birthday).
  • Party Favors is optional and open to everyone.
  • There is no sign up or claiming. If something catches your eye and you want to do a fill for it, go right ahead!
  • Fills should follow the same Guidelines as those for regular assignments, with one exception:
    • There is no minimum requirement for Party Favor fills.
If you have any questions, ask away.

Have fun!

Assignments for the 2016 Tachibana Makoto Birthday Exchange have gone out through AO3 (four days early!).

Please check your email for your assignment. Alternatively, you can find it by going to your AO3 dashboard: look on the side menu, scroll down to “Assignments,” and look for the one for “2016 Makoto Birthday Fanworks Exchange.”

IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!

Matching had to be done manually outside of AO3 for this exchange, and then manually entered into AO3 in order to be sent out.

I used “manually” twice there to emphasize that this was not automated, so there were a lot of opportunities for human error. I quadruple checked the assignments before they went out and I think they’re right – but if you got an assignment that was not on your list, please let me know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. It may be possible to correct your assignment (especially if two people got assignments meant for each other), and if not we’ll figure something out. If you want to let me know you got an assignment that works, I’d love to hear from you – but it’s not required.

If there are any other problems, let me know.

Thanks, and have fun!

Thank you for your interest in being a pinch hitter for the 2016 Tachibana Makoto Birthday Exchange! Here's some info for you:

What is a pinch hitter?

When a participant drops out for whatever reason, a pinch hitter is someone who steps up and accepts the assignment in their place (sometimes on very short notice). Pinch hitters are absolutely essential to the success of any exchange.

How does pinch hitting work?

Unlike regular assignments, pinch hits are not automatically assigned. Whenever one comes up, it goes out for claiming to all potential pinch hitters on a mailing list. If you’re interested in taking the assignment, you reply to the email. If you're not interested, you don't have to do anything. Pinch hits are assigned on a first come, first served basis.

Do I have to be a participant in the exchange in order to be a pinch hitter?

Definitely not! We'll take anyone who's interested.

So then, how can I join the pinch hitter mailing list?
Leave a comment here with your name and a reliable email address you check regularly. Comments are screened and your email will be kept confidential.

Do I need an account anywhere in particular to participate?
Yes—the exchange is running through AO3 this year, so in order to accept a pinch hit assignment you will need an AO3 account. If you don't have one, you can go here to request a free account or let us know in your comment and we'll set you up with one.

And how much do you love me for signing up to be a pinch hitter?
A lot. So flippin' much, you don't even know!

Just in case you missed it above: to sign up as a pinch hitter, please leave a comment here (all comments are screened) with the following:
  • your name (whatever you want me to call you; including your AO3 name is optional at this point)
  • a reliable email address you check regularly
Thank you! ♥

ASSIGNMENT ID 02
[Requester: Ad_Astra]

Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: see notes
  • Characters: Matsuoka Rin, Nanase Haruka, Shigino Kisumi, Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke, others optional/welcome
  • Details: General Gist: AU where Makoto, Sousuke, Rin, Haru and Kisumi all end up in the same college / university (or different universities in the same location) and decide to save up on costs by renting a house together. Not looking for a particular plot. Suggestions/Possible Scenarios:
    • Kisumi, Rin and Sousuke dealing with Makoto and Haru's freaky telepathy thing.
    • Makoto becoming friends with the local fire department after setting the kitchen on fire one too many times.
    • Housemates dealing with loud sex noises.
    • Kisumi accidentally feeding Rin and Haru roofie brownies and Sousuke and Makoto dealing with the disastrous aftermath.
    • Rin tutoring the others in English.
    • Makoto majors in psychology and subconsciously uses his lessons on his unsuspecting housemates.
    • Pizza and movie nights.
    • They form an informal basketball team at Kisumi's behest and participate in the local street basketball. Sousuke is center, Makoto is power forward, Kisumi is small forward, Haru is the shooting guard, and Rin is point guard. Bonus points for KnB cameos.
  • Notes: I don't mind gen for this but if you'd like to write/draw a ship, any of the three pairings specified will do. Bonus points for the other peeps (Nagisa, Rei, Gou, Nitori, Momo and Sei) occasionally dropping by for additional mayhem. If you want to include other ships, please feel free! As a preference though, non-Makoto ships I also like are SouGou, HaruAki, and RinRei :)
Type: Fic
Rating: T - E
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: AU where Makoto transfers to Sousuke's Tokyo swimming school in his first year of high school, and becomes friends with Sousuke, eventually playing a part in making sure Sousuke doesn't push himself too hard with his training. This changes several things: Sousuke doesn't break his shoulder, and Makoto undergoes the kind of rigid training that swimmers aiming to compete internationally do, which eventually factors in his decision about the future. Makoto goes back to Iwatobi for his second year and he and Sousuke keep in touch. Sousuke does get scouted in his second year, and enrolls in Samezuka to swim with Rin on his third year. They (Makoto and Sousuke) face off again in the third year relay. Makoto and Haru remain best friends, and Sousuke's dream is still to swim beside Rin on the big stage. Basically nothing changes in Free! except for that one temporary transfer.
  • Notes: Can be gen if you want, but if you're writing this in a shippy context, I'd like lots of H/C, hugs and shoulder kisses. Smut is optional. If you want to continue writing until their future timeline, Makoto doesn't necessarily have to go pro, but he does keep competing at least on a collegiate level. Sousuke, however, MUST go pro.
Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Matsuoka Rin, Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: Giver AU (sort of). Makoto is a battleship pilot who comes from a planet that chemically removes emotions from its people on a regular basis. One day, while on a standard patrol check, an asteroid comes and knocks him and his ship off course, and right into a wormhole that sends him to an unknown sector of outer space. He crash lands on Planet earth, where he meets Rin, who is bursting with the unfamiliar emotions that Makoto has been denied of for all of his natural life. (The rest is up to you, but obviously they end up together and Makoto's emotions surface because of Rin, and just please please give me a happy ending *prayer emoji*)
Type: Comic or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Shigino Kisumi/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Matsuoka Rin, Nanase Haruka, Shigino Hayato, Shigino Kisumi, Shiina Asahi, Tachibana Makoto, Yamazaki Sousuke, others optional/welcome (see notes)
  • Details: Hayato tries to play matchmaker to Kisumi and Makoto, only for Haruka/Rin/Sousuke/Asahi to unintentionally thwart him every time, until that one time no one didn't.
  • Notes: This doesn't have to be from Hayato's POV, just saying. If you'd like to include sideships, I'm fine with most anything though I'm particularly fond of SouGou, RinRei, and HaruAki!
Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: E
  • Pairing: Mikoshiba Seijuuro/Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke or Matsuoka Rin/Shigino Kisumi/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: see pairings
  • Details: Token porn request. Just give me filthy consensual, threesome porn with either of these combinations, with Makoto taking it from both his loving boyfriends. Headcanon that they all switch around but Makoto particularly requested that they go to town on his ass (and then some) for his birthday :3
  • Notes: Kinks I like: Sensory deprivation, orgasm denial, toys, light bondage, aftercare, sub!Makoto, breathplay. Stuff I don't like: scat, watersports, bloodplay, rape, spit as lube, daddy kink, excessive drooling.
Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Shippy or friendship, Makoto with any of the listed characters
  • Characters: Makoto and any of: Matsuoka Rin, Mikoshiba Seijuuro, Nanase Haruka, Shigino Kisumi, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: In case none of my prompts appeal to you, here are a general list of things I like and dislike, which you are free to interpret however you want. I’m honestly not very picky so if you have an idea you’ve always wanted to try that doesn’t seem to clash with any of my general list, please go ahead!
    • Likes: older!frees (college and young working adults are my fave), bottom!makoto, cars, road trips, travelling, Makoto in fashionable clothes, secret agents AU, rock band vocalist!Makoto, kicking ass in videogames!Makoto, basketball player!Makoto, muscle contest winner!Makoto, Megane!Makoto, Modified Splash!Free Makoto (and by modified, I mean with 80% less layers and a glaring lack of protection of his tiddies), happy sex, kinky sex, Makoto with books, Makoto doing competitive swimming on a collegiate level, basically just give me happy Makoto and I’ll be very happy!
    • Dislikes: Please, no yandere!Makoto or Daddy Kink of any form or kind, they're the two things in Free! fandom that I outright hate. I’m also not fond of supernatural things like ghosts, zombies, vampires and werewolves, etc. Similarly, I'm not a fan of excessive violence, post-apocalyptic AUs, horror, reincarnation AUs, and soulmate AUs. Also, while I do enjoy angst, I want my Makoto birthday gift to be a happy one, so I’d prefer it if my gift doesn’t contain major character death or illness. I’m also not fond of gore, daddy kink, and smut that involves bodily fluids that aren’t cum, tears and sweat.
  • Notes: And… that’s it I think! Thank you in advance, and I’m so excited for your gift!

Though I normally don't ask for ships for any specific prompt, I would prefer this one to be shippy as I would like to see Kisumi's attempts at flirting with Makoto, who's either royally oblivious or incredibly embarrassed (or both) and seeing him get flustered back when Makoto manages to flirt back!

He's decided around the middle of his college career that he'd take on child psychology as a major as well as becoming an educator, on top of having a health science degree. His examinations are coming up and he. Is. Stressed. Of course, his stress doesn't go unnoticed, and the boys try and do something for him to help him relax.
  • Notes: SFW or NSFW is welcome, but if you know my track record... well.


ASSIGNMENT ID 07 [Requester: CommunistFireworks]

Type: Comic or Fic
Rating: T - M (see notes)
  • Pairing: Nanase Haruka/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Nanase Haruka, Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: Haru's reluctant to study but Makoto really needs to study so Haru just makes a lot of dumb biochem innuendos that Mako doesn't pick up on at first and then gets progressively more flustered like "omg theres no way he's doing this on purpose" (he totally is tho). It can take place at one of their dorms (maybe Haru's single dorm) so they don't scar their families for life with their innuendos and boners lbr.
  • Notes: For the rating, teen I guess (mature if need-be. I don't mind either, as long as there's no explicit sex lmao)
Type: Comic or Fic
Rating: T
  • Pairing: Tachibana Makoto/Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Tachibana Ran, Tachibana Ren, Yamazaki Sousuke
  • Details: I guess where Sousuke comes over to Mako's house and sees how good he is with his younger siblings and his ludicrously mild 'swears' and Sousuke is kind of endeared and once the twins go to their friends house or something they play video games just the two of them and Sousuke is so surprised at how competitive Makoto is in Smash Bros (or something) and the fact that Mako swears like a sailor. Sousuke is simultaneously afraid and turned on?? by Makoto's aggressively competitive video gaming ass.
Type: Comic or Fic
Rating: G - T
  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Matsuoka Rin, Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: One of them realizes something incredibly important and has to rush out in the middle of a thunderstorm to tell the other (idc who does which part but its like, really dramatic) and their family/roomate is like dude where are you going? but they're ignored as they keep running to the other one's door and when the door opens they're all out of breath and soaked to the bone and only manage to gasp out whatever incredibly important revelation they've had (it can be funny or serious(like a love confession lmao). Hah if you do funny then the person can expect it to be like a love confession and anticipate something dramatic to come from the soaked idiot and is all, dude r u srs rn? Or if you choose serious then it can be like a really sweet kissing in the rain kind of thing.
Type: Comic or Fic

  • Characters: Nanase Haruka, Tachibana Makoto, others optional/welcome
  • Details: Modern Magic!AU where Haru's a really talented witch who doesn't really use his powers that much and Mako's a magic store delivery boy. Needless to say Makoto gets to know the route to Haru's place really really well. Sometimes he'll ask about Haru's practice and gets flustered replies that sometimes don't make sense but Mako won't call him out on not knowing the difference frogs legs make in a transfiguration potion.

Feel free to go as wild as you like, but I am kinda partial to a merman AU idea, sort of like the Future Fish idea. But again, free reign for you!

ASSIGNMENT ID 09 [Requester: EternalDarkEyes]

Type: Art or Comic or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: none or Nanase Haruka/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Hazuki Nagisa, Matsuoka Rin, Nanase Haruka, Ryugazaki Rei, Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: It would really be cute to have Makoto surprised by different cats throughout his day with little hidden messages/items from specific characters. In the end, he follows one of the cat's instructions to find his birthday party with all his friends who had sent him cat messages. This idea could be translated however you like into the fic, art, or comic mediums. As long as Makoto gets treated with many cats and the love from his friends.
Type: Art or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Nanase Haruka/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Nanase Haruka, Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: Two prompts for this, choose whichever appeals more to you:
    1. All day, Makoto finds himself getting soaked with water (through whichever unfortunate means). By the end of the day, he finds out that Haru was behind all the soakings. Haru soaked him, believing that Makoto deserved the best thing he could offer. And what was better than water? Unfortunately, being soaked several times in the cool weather of November leaves Makoto feeling ill. Haru feels apologetic, and snuggles him all that night. They have a quiet, cozy birthday night together.
    2. For a more broad option, I just love Makoto and Haru's relationship in general. I love that it is so comfortable and loving. If you could write something that captures that love and devotion, how they spoil each other and completely trust each other, that would be awesome. This could be done as a simple canon-possible situation, together in Tokyo situation, or a sweet AU situation. Have fun with fluff and light plot, just as long as Makoto and Haru are happy together in the end.
Type: Art or Fic
Rating: Any
  • Pairing: Nanase Haruka/Tachibana Makoto or  Nanase Haruka & Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Nanase Haruka, Tachibana Makoto, Tachibana Makoto's Parents, Tachibana Ran, Tachibana Ren
  • Details: Two prompts for this, choose whichever appeals more to you:
    1. Its Makoto's first birthday party where he can invite friends. However, no one comes due to bad weather (or whatever). Really disappointed, young Makoto doesn't really feel like celebrating. But his family and his neighbor Haru make up for the absence of everyone else, and Makoto ends up having his best birthday yet. (Makoto & Haruka)
    2. Makoto (of whatever age) is assigned to interview people who inspire him (his "heroes"). Makoto interviews his parents, but doesn't feel right without including his other hero. Somehow, he has to gain the courage to interview Haru too. (Makoto & family, Makoto/Haruka or Makoto & Haruka)

Takes place at a competition where they compete against each other in individual events and the team event. Regardless of who wins what, they're happy for each other. Makoto wins first place for the first time in his main individual event. Afterwards, the three of them go back to Haru's house to celebrate, putting the focus on Makoto.

  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Matsuoka Rin, Tachibana Makoto, Rin's Australian Foster Parents
  • Details: Rin takes Makoto to visit Australia because Makoto wanted to go after Rin took Haru. Post Eternal Summer and they're in an established relationship. In either option, I would like for Rin to take Makoto to meet his host parents and introduces him as his boyfriend. (No homophobia and they're accepting) What else they do in Australia is up to the filler.
    1. Option 1 - Canon compliant where Rin went to train in Australia and Makoto went to Tokyo for university while they are still dating. Makoto spends his break visiting Rin. Some angst over them being in a long distance relationship would be good but has fluff.
    2. Option 2 - Canon divergence where Rin stayed in Japan to swim instead and they take a vacation trip to Australia. Lots of fluff.

  • Details: Arabian AU but not quite. Haru is the Crown Prince of a small Kingdom, and both Makoto and Rin are children of nobles studying/training under the same Master for their future positions in court. Their Master is an old genius strategist or something, and, having foreseen their neighboring Kingdom/Empire plan to invade their Kingdom once the young Crown Prince rises to the throne, he trains Makoto and Rin on two completely different field: Rin is trained to be the ruthless, semeingly heartless, genius military strategist general, while Makoto is trained solely in domestic affairs and after-war relief efforts/rebuildings. I want to read Makoto and Rin giving it their all in their respective field to help Haru fight off the invasion after he rises to the throne. Whether it's through war or political means, up to you. I just want established!MakoRin stealing moments of comfort in-between their duties to the Kingdom, being the power couple that flanks Haru from invading Empire. Makoto attending kingdom alliance meetings and organize transports/supplies to battlefield as well as managing domestic economy, while Rin wreaks havoc in the battlefield, talking strategy, doing sieges and dividing war spoils. Bonuses:
    • Rin and Makoto trusts and understands each other so well they never question each other, and it's precisely because of that they could focus on their own field of specialty.
    • Makoto sees Rin and his army off to the battlefield every time they go.
    • Sousuke as Rin's right-hand general and Seijuurou and Nagisa as the bloodthirsty generals. Momo as the royal courier/messenger, Rei and Nitori as Makoto's helpers.
    • Gou helping Haru holding the diplomacy fort, and they slay the nobles who question Haru's authority.

  • Characters: Kirishima Natsuya, Matsuoka Rin, Nanase Haruka, Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: Makoto bumps into Natsuya at his university. Turns out they go to the same university (different majors) and actually take the same English class. Naturally, they start hanging out a lot, especially when Haru is competing out of town. Rin, all the way in Australia, is totally not jealous, what are you talking about. He's just, you know, a tiny bit worried because Kirishima Natsuya is ridiculously good-looking with good muscles, and from what he's heard from Makoto, he's a great senpai. There's no guarantee that Makoto's heart would not skip a bit when he spends time with Natsuya, and Rin just DOES NOT WANT. Bonuses:
    • Haru jokingly provoking Rin about Makoto and Natsuya, then feels bad because Rin actually gets anxious about it.
    • Random midnight calls from Australia in which Rin tries to tell Makoto that he's anxious about Makoto being close to Natsuya, but chickens out from actually saying it every time.

I'd like to see not only Makoto and Rin bonding with their respective younger siblings, but also with their partner's younger sibling(s). Bonuses:

  • Details: [Takes place during High Speed! 2/Starting Days.] Kisumi, Asahi, and Ikuya find out that Makoto's birthday is coming up and they drag Haru into their plan of baking a chocolate cake (in Haru's house). Makoto comes over Haru's house the day they plan to bake the cake, so they have to plan quickly how to distract him/keep him busy because they can't just drive him away. (and despite everything, Makoto remains oblivious) At the end of the day, after all their bonding, they take out the cake and celebrate! Basically I just want really funny bonding moments between them while Haru gets frustrated they can't bake the cake properly with Makoto really curious why the kitchen is off-limits all of a sudden. XD The boys take turns in distracting Makoto and helping Haru in the kitchen, though once the cake is in the oven, Haru takes part in whatever they're doing. Distractions like playing video/card/boardgames, watching movies/anime DVDs Kisumi brought, or petting and feeding stray cats near Haru's house would be cool! If art, maybe art of Makoto and the other boys around the cake they made! :'D

Makoto really isn't sure how to give advice, but he inspires Nagisa by telling him how relationships work (based on experience XD) and how he sees that Nagisa and Gou are actually really close. Their conversation spirals from that to a heart-to-heart talk about the future, swimming, and their friends (and maybe their insecurities?).

  • Pairing: none or see details
  • Characters: Makoto, others (see details/notes)
  • Details: Makoto's birthday through the years. It doesn't need to necessarily focus on Makoto's birthday per se, but something along the lines of circumstances that have shaped him up to be the person he is every year: the twins being born, his first time alone at home, the first day of middle school of him not being in the same classroom as Haru, meeting Rin, when Haru almost drowns that day, finding out the old fisherman died, moving to Tokyo--etc. Like a collection of vignettes of introspection and occasions throughout his life, up to whatever age the author so chooses (up to his college years is fine...!). Basically looking for a sense of character and personality growth in Makoto, and how different situations throughout his years have caused him to change aspects of himself--for better or for worse.
  • Notes: Makoto's POV please! But no first-person. There doesn't need to be any ship end (though Makoto dating anyone A+; on that note, Makoto & Haru, Makoto/Rin or Makoto/Gou, or Makoto/insert-person-he-tried-dating-in-university lol).

    • the nuances of dealing with a long-distance relationship;
    • fluff! (smut not necessarily, but also welcome if desired by author);
    • their relationship having its ups and downs, but overcoming challenges at one point or another;
    • moving in together?! I'd say Japan, but Sydney would be hella exciting... (perhaps moving in together to continue studying a Masters {Makoto}, and getting to meet Lori and Russel and Winnie);
    • a roadtrip would also be okay, across Australia--a quest to improve Makoto's English and give him an extra special view of the world outside of Japan (okay but imagine Makoto driving and Rin chilling co-pilot with the outback as their backdrop);
    • star gazing!;
    • surfing!;
  • Notes: Feel free to add any other details! Just a very chill, domestic-y kind of fic, with relationship introspection. Other characters may show up too, of course! Put in their two cents on how they feel about the relationship or things in general. Full-circles towards a relationship that can withstand the test of long-distance and lives becoming busy, Makoto growing comfortable in his own skin thanks to Rin, and Rin learning a sense of home from Makoto. *Do show how both these characters are inherently good for each other, even in a friendship sense.

  • Characters: Tachibana Makoto, Tachibana Ran, Tachibana Ren
  • Details: Makoto gets visited in Tokyo by Ran and Ren! Make it so the twins are at least seniors in high school, or with whatever works best for the timeline you as the author decide to work with. Makoto imparts some adult knowledge on the twins for the week they'll be staying in Tokyo with him for (teenage angst..), and the three of them relearn their sibling relationship all over now that they're older. (Considering how they have at least 8 years of age difference? And Makoto's likely to have missed out on most of their teenage years while he was in university/working as an adult in Tokyo or elsewhere outside of Iwatobi.) There's definitely a ton they need to work out after living so far from each other, and developing Ran and Ren's personalities might be fun to write out! (Ran's usually more outspoken than Ren, I think is the general consensus?) You may include other senpai in the mix to throw in their own words of wisdom (Haru, Rin, Sousuke, Kisumi, Rei, Nagisa, Gou...), with either hilarious or disastrous results, but in the end, they always end up going back to their big brother's words, because he's definitely Ran and Ren's forever hero/person to admire.

  • Characters: Matsuoka Rin, Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: Serial-killer!AU (or just sociopathic tendency would be fine, too). Makoto is intelligent, kind (or very good at pretending to be), and has a very, very nice smile. Yet, there is something off about him. Rin doesn't trust him, not entirely. He knows Makoto hides something, but he isn't sure he wants to find out what. He just wishes Makoto would stop touching him so casually all the time.

    • A day in the life of (Makoto centric)

  • Details: S2E9- Makoto and Rin aren't interrupted in the hotel and get to finish their conversation about Makoto's swimming potential (Makoto looked so surprised when Rin said he'd have scouts after him too and I just need someone to make Makoto believe he is good enough, he deserves it!). Makoto can choose to keep swimming/swim for a scholarship and study coaching, whatever, just want to see Rin tell him he is capable of it and he believes in him and Makoto accepting it (maybe with lots of blushing ;) ). Pre-relationship- can start here or just have crazy amounts of UST, go as far as you like.

  • Pairing: Matsuoka Rin/Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Matsuoka Rin, Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: Future fish AU: Makoto is trapped in a bank during a robbery, and Officer Matsuoka is the first on the scene. In a fit of stupidity/bravery, Makoto tries to take down the gunman and consequently allows everyone else to escape, but physical fights are not his strong point and he gets knocked out by the gunman/the gun. Hurt/comfort with some humor, maybe Makoto recovering from an injury? Extra kudos if they're strangers before this happens and slowly get to know each other in the process of Rin checking in on Makoto every so often to make sure he isn't continuing with that self-sacrificing habit of his.

He makes an appointment with friendly local veterinarian Sousuke, who offers to microchip, vaccinate and desex and whole litter for free because A) it's the right thing to do, and B) Makoto is fine as hell, and he's spent enough money at Sousuke's vet clinic to keep it in business.
    • Alternatively: future fish au, cop!Sou and firefighter!Makoto.
    • Anything at all!

Rin (cop) is a witness for either side, gets cross-examined, feels kinda caught in the middle. The opposing-sides thing puts a strain on SouMako's relationship and Rin is just the glue holding them together.

  • Pairing: Shigino Kisumi/Tachibana Makoto or Shigino Kisumi & Tachibana Makoto
  • Characters: Shigino Kisumi, Tachibana Makoto
  • Details: Makoto/Kisumi would be amazing in pretty much any way shape or form. Slow burn (obviously not a multichapter but a history of it), first times, roommates, misunderstandings leading to dating are all things I really love with these two. In an ideal world a University aged fic where they either meet or reconnect and get/are together would be amazing, be it through a wrong number, bad gouken night and making a friend, or dorm/classmates. I don't want to nail you down to a specific, but a fic along those lines would be so so so appreciated. If you think it's right you can go the distance and have them do it, if not at least a kiss please.
