Wow, a new sub from AO! And this the ep I've been waiting for. Because...
Ryoma gets out of bed and looks out the window. He sees Tezuka.
Hal: Say "buchou", Ryoma. Say it. Say it!
Oh, their conversation. Ryoma is so serious and so needy and Tezuka is so -- I don't know what. I was going to say distant, but really, he's not. Controlled, maybe. *sigh* TezuRyo was my first tenipuri pairing and it is still up there with InuKai for me. Something about it makes me sad, makes me want to cry whenever I hear them talk to each other.
(But somebody please explain to me why I'm so hearts and flowers for TezuRyo but when I see something about Yamato-buchou and ichinen!Tezuka, I scream "Paedophile!" and then spork myself.)
And look -- Mizuki and Kaidoh playing doubles. *files for future reference*
OK, now the big revelation that Nanjiroh is Ryoma's father. Much shock all around for the non-Seigaku players. I just can't believe that none of them have ever even considered it before now.
Now Tezuka is sneaking around and spying on Ryoma because he just can't stay away. Aw!
But he's not recommending Ryoma for the team because Ryoma isn't serious enough. Daddy's so harsh!
Lalala. Must drink scotch and write fic now.
