The way Rei looks at Nagisa. But also the way Nagisa looks at Rei. I mean, he’s the one who looked at Rei first. He’s the one who thought “oh my god he beautiful”. He’s the one whose heart basically imploded with joy when Rei accepted to join the club. He’s the one who saved him from drowning and probably performed cpr on him—- okay, you got it. They care about each other so much it’s painful.
They’re so comfortable around each other. And they feel each other’s presence so much. Like, Rei always knows what Nagisa is doing - maybe because Nagisa has a “loud” presence, but… He always makes sure he’s okay and doesn’t do anything dangerous. And in some interview Nagisa said he felt Rei’s presence during the last relay and… I CAN’T. Also, he’s so comfortable around Rei in general, like he feels safe with him (falling asleep on the train with his head on rei’s shoulder, jumping on his bed, holding rei’s jacket when they take that photo after the relay, like “i want you here, close, because you’re part of the team but i want you close to me especially. okay, nagisa is very physical with everyone, but when he and rei hold hands… boom).
They’re just soulmates. I don’t care if it sounds stupid, but they’re just… right? Like the universe did his best to make them meet. They’re the perfect match, they make each other… not just better, but “more”?
Thanks for the ask and sorry if this sounds… dumb.
