I was just an innocent man caught in the crossfire.
SUMMARY » In the country that greets the sun first as it rises from the darkness of the world, a dying man dreamed of a sakura tree, large and overwhelming, blooming in the midst of a winter storm. Of course, that was all a dream.
This is the story of a man who never smiled and always lied learned what it meant to sacrifice oneself. This is the story of a man who always smiled and never spoke his own thoughts learned what it meant to be selfish.
This is the story of how two men learn how the world works during a winter where sakuras bloom.

A/N » Here we go! Finally a mixtape to accompany the yakuza!soumako fic which you can read and follow along here on AO3. The songs put together here correspond to specific events and emotions/reactions that have or will occur throughout the arc of the story. So, if you’re really curious as to the general moments that Sousuke and Makoto will face, you can just follow along to this! With that in mind, the lyrics to each song are incredibly crucial to their characters—most of them however lean towards Sousuke’s perspective since he turned out to be my unexpected protagonist (I’m a sucker for those mysterious and dark). Makoto does have a few songs thrown in there. I wonder if you can guess which ones? Anyways, enjoy! Thank you for loving and supporting through comments and kudos and likes, etc. It really gives me energy and motivation to continue and give these swimming babes a proper and completed story.
and tune in for next week of Free! for Kiss me
lol until I came to tumblr I didn’t know Kisumi was a character’s name so I was very confused on why Makoto said kiss me and then everybody started saying kiss me kiss me kissmekissmekiss… yeah this happened
