Magic touch (Sosuke X Reader)
///// IT'S TUNA TIME!!!!! ///////     \o/
Warning you are about to read Suggestive Themes!
”Is it aching again?” You asked your boyfriend when you came back to the living room after finishing the dishes from dinner and saw Sosuke rub his shoulder again looking like he was quite uncomfortable with the feeling.
“Yeah. It’s been worse a couple of days now.” He said as he tried to massage his injured shoulder himself without making any progress.
With a small sigh you walked over to the sofa and made the quite tall male sit in front of you on the floor while you sat behind him and asked him to strip his shirt of, earning a telltale smirk from him when he took of his long sleeve revealing a toned torso that made you unconsciously bite your lover lip.
“If you wanted to see me shirtless all you had to do is ask.” Sosuke smirked making you blush and slap his better shoulder.
“Oh shut up Yamazaki if you want me to help you!”

Teacher!Makoto x Student!Reader- Somehow...
Please read the other two Teacher!Makoto x Readers before reading this one, it would make more sense! c:
You were laying on your bed in your room at your house. You didn't know what to do. Your situation was already hard enough with you dating your teacher, but now you had to have his baby? You were trying to process all of this, wondering how to tell Makoto the news and wondering how to cover all this up. You knew you couldn't just get rid of it... Makoto would probably be really upset with you for that. You were almost done high school at least, only 3 months to go. Your doctor said that you were already 2 months pregnant, so your stomach would surely get a little bigger. You didn't know how to tell your friends either, cause they would ask you all sorts of questions you knew you didn't want to answer. You decided to take a short nap to forget about everything for a bit.
You were woken up by Makoto who seemed to ha

:new: Hey Free-Fans! :new:
I am the world’s no.1 procrastinator seeing how a journal I started in February is being finished in August.
But I need to finish this before I start something else SO HERE WE ARE.
Unfortunately the website I used to use to make these isn't available anymore, so all the images are EVERYWHERE and all different sizes, and it's generally a very very ugly journal RIP.
I'll try fix up a new layout in the next journal, so bare with me.  

Hey Free-Fans!
Happy New Year, Happy Lunar New Year, Happy Valentines and probably some Happy Birthdays!
It's been FOREVER since something exciting has happened, so long that I completely missed posting my New Year Official Art Dump! (It's already FEBRUARY!!!)

Well, despite the lack of activity in this group both Kyo-Ani and I know the fandom is still strong.
And hence accounted the release of the Official Free Novelisation!
Yes you can all read the original animated series in light novel form in June.
Some of you may think this isn't very important, but for those who have read High Speed, you'll know these novels actually greatly expand on the animated story and is totally worth the read *wink wink*

You can watch the novel trailer here:  

Once again, I'll be dumping all the official Free!/Eternal Summer/HighSpeed art, merch and news below (in no particular order). I know I've been totally starved of these boys, so enjoy the splurt!
(There will probably be some higher quality repeats or continuations from last years journal)

The two new Illustration Works will also include new mooks!
Volume 1 : Sousuke/Rin, Nagisa/Rei, Ai/Momotaro
Volume 2 : Makoto/Haruka, Rin/Haruka

Hello! Anybody's here? Artworks wait for approval a month.
FatLittleSeal Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2016
There could be several reasons why your work hasn't been approved. 

The first and most likely problem is that our group requires a minimum of two admin approvals for a work to get accepted. 
I am always active on the group, checking for submissions at least once a day, but this might not be the case for other admins, and hence the lack of the second approval.

A second reason linked to the first, is that perhaps something happened to your submission from the admin's POV. 
This could be as simple as your submission being accidentally deleted from the admin's item list. 

The third reason could be that your submission wasn't approved at all, and you haven't realized. 

The best advice I can give is for you to re-submit your work, checking it is part of the correct folder (or featured folder if you're not sure). 
Sorry for the inconvenience, and the long wait, but I am very grateful you brought this up.
If there are any problems with your second submission, be sure to message again and I'll take more serious steps to find out what the problem is.
From Nel (FatLittleSeal, Founder) 
KGxspace Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2016  Professional
Hello! Thank you for your answer (as you can see, I can be pretty late too ;))

Being an admin for the group - I do understand it. I'm happy that the group is still active.

Thank you very much for taking your time! Have a lovely day!
SamCyberCat Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2016
I'm sorry. Could you please resubmit your piece? I'm still active on here most days and approve submissions that come through, so maybe yours just didn't turn up in my messages. :(
KGxspace Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2016  Professional
Hello! Thank you for your answer (as you can see, I can be pretty late too ;))

No need to apologize! I am happy that the group is still active, I was worried that there is no one who would take care of the group :) I will just re-submit the artwork.

Thank you very much for taking your time! Have a lovely day!

Hi! I wanted to ask if you would be willing to become affiliated with my group?


If not, that's totally okay! Just thought I'd ask before sending a request or anything! :)
FatLittleSeal Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2016
Hi, I'm the founder of Free-Fans 
I'd love our groups to be affiliated! 
Feel free to send requests and the such without asking, it's all good :D 

Just a tip: you should open affiliation invites on your group page. 
I tried to add you, but the option wasn't there! 

IwatobiSurveyCorps Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Ah, thanks again, I'm glad we can be affiliated!!
And thank you for being so nice! ^-^

Also I'll be sure to fix that, haha!
TiBun Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Is this group still live? It's been quite some time since anything I submit has been accepted, they all expire.
FatLittleSeal Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2016
I'm the founder of this group, and I do check on the group every day to enter submissions and the such, so yes, this group is still live. 
The group is arranged so that 2 admins have to agree to a submission before it is allowed through (this is because in the past other admins have allowed in submissions that have nothing to do with Free!).

Your submissions have probably not been let through because of several reasons such as low quality images, not being related to Free! or (for cosplays) you've submitted heaps of the same cosplay. 
These rarely happen, and it's most likely  because some of my admins aren't as active as I'd like them to be, and haven't been letting your submissions through. 
I'll sort out a way to fix this and post up a journal or something soon. 
Thanks for letting me know!!!
