I WANT THIS SCENE PLAYED AT MY FUNERAL ON INFINITE LOOP
This scene was amazing in the book, and was just as amazing in the film. Special thanks to Katniss’ expression the entire time.
I was screaming at Katniss’s expression. Loved. It.
Are we even sure that’s Katniss there? Pretty sure it’s just Jennifer.
No, Rei, YOU are truly beautiful.
You were brought into the club even when you didn’t want to at first, you trained with them, you made memories with them, they became your friends. But they were stuck in the past “Rin-chan! Rin-chan! Rin-chan!”“I wanna swim with Rin-chan!” and you never showed it, you never let it effect your friendship but everyone else could see that it hurt you, you felt like the odd man out and, really, you were. That’s not easy. But you swam with them in relay, you saw what it was like, you felt like a part of the team for the first time since you had joined! And you wanted the team to go far! You wanted to swim with the best team you could imagine! You trained so hard to not let them down, and Rei, you didn’t let them down. You gave up what you wanted because it made Haru happy. But not only Haru, it made the team happy. You sacrificed all your hard work, so your team could be happy. You put them before yourself because you knew, that you could never replace Rin’s spot, but as Nagisa said “Every team member is irreplaceable”.
Rei, you are the truly beautiful one. I’ll drown anyone who says otherwise.
…okay, Rei is OFFICIALLY the character that gave it ALL for the team! I had a TERRIBLE feeling that THIS was going to happen and you know, the way the writers handled it, I feel okay with it. Rei, you’re the hero of the day! You TOTALLY rock!!
…I can only imagine what he must have been feeling through this entire episode. *hugs him* He did it for the team and for the teammates he loves so much, but even so, he made a huge sacrifice. And what’s more, when he asked Haru if there was someone he wanted to swim with, it must have stung just a little to know that it wasn’t him. …especially after the previous episode. But, in his heart, he knows he’s an irreplaceable member of the team and that’s enough for him. He knew that the group couldn’t move forward if he didn’t make this concession for them and so, he did what he had to do. Well done! <3
DO YOU KNOW WHO DESERVES AN APPLAUSE?
HE GAVE HIS RELAY PLACE FOR RIN
REI TRAINED FOR A RELAY HE JOINED AN ENTIRE SWIMMING CLUB FOR THIS
AND HE DIDN’T SWIM BECAUSE HE SAW HOW MUCH THEY WANTED TO SWIM WITH RIN
BLESS YOU REI
