i find it quite interesting, that out of all Haru’s closest friends, Rin’s the only one who has opened eyes in this dream.
Also he doesn’t look creepy at all, i’d even say he looks amazing with this halo around him, that looks like wings. His eyes demanding, gaze intense. But he’s just too bright and Haru covers his eyes.
Does it mean that in Haru’s head Rin symbolizes future that calls him for decisions he’s too afraid and lost to make? And that’s why Rin is getting all of Haru’s pain when he breaks down, even if all that pressure wasn’t really coming from Rin in the first place.
"If you consider Haruka’s state of mind during that scene - while understanding nothing himself, don’t you think that Rin, who has his eyes set firmly on the future, might appeared to have been shining to him?"
I feel like the reason they have their eyes closed has nothing to do with Haru’s perception (or closeness) to them, but rather the exact thing that the dream is hitting at: they do not know about the future, either. They’re blind, even if they’re hopeful for the future- Rin is the only one with that dream, with that promised land before him, with his eyes open. He’s found his light, but Haru is struggling to find his own- he doesn’t want Rin’s light.
