- "People don't succeed by saying they couldn't. I must do something."
Homura Matsuo is an OC made by Mougeki Mero and given to Rgis.
Homura is an observant, intelligent girl. She has above average grades in school, probably because she will read anything. Textbooks, romance novels, even labels on water bottles are a joy for her. In addition, she is obedient and a great listener. She can be a bit distant, but she isn't cold or uncaring.
In fact, she can get pretty emotional, even temperamental. For Homura, this means more joy along with the sadness. For others, who have to deal with her, this means she can be a bit of a handful. But if Homura can deal with it, so can others, especially the excessive worrying. Homura has trouble believing in herself, thinking that she can only repeat what went wrong. She can be a bit dependent on others, and worries if she's bothering people by needing and talking to them so much. Off and on again she'll be stuck in her own idyllic world, but she is growing out of it. Homura wants to improve and talk to others more, but she is still growing.
Because of Homura believes she messes up so frequently, she is forgiving of others when they do the same. She tries to forgive as much as possible before her forgiveness starts to enable continuous bad behavior. She has a strong sense of empathy and hates to see others hurt, but will tell the truth (which may or may not be a a tad sugarcoated) if she believes it will help.
Homura used to be shy and much more quiet, preferring to be surrounded by friends and family. She held them dear to her heart, depending on them. Homura was happy, immersed in her own little world. A place where she could not be reminded of the reality of her situation. Although she was a kid, her refusal was not normal.
Her family loved her, but did not help. Rowan Linwood, a friend from her middle school, came to her rescue. He was abnormally caring, always there for others and never for himself. He was one-of-a-kind and different, the needle in the haystack. He took her out for ice cream and walked her home, always making sure she was safe. He gave her someone to lean on, and she told him that his help was very much appreciated.
But his help couldn't really be called "help". She didn't believe in herself, so she had other people make decisions for her. He simply gave her another person to depend upon. Rowan liked to be someone's savior, and Homura liked being saved, but this wasn't exactly healthy for the two of them. They needed to change their ways, and even if they grew apart as they changed and became more independent of one another it would be for the best. Rowan realized this and decided to tell Homura just that, and of course, she didn't take it well no matter what way he put it.
She stopped talking to him, hoping to avoid such a break in her little world again. A few months later, Rowan invited her out to ice cream for the umpteenth time ever since their friendship was broken off. Homura decided that because more responsibilities were right around the corner, she would have to grow up sooner or later. Now, both of them are in high school and the two must rethink their lives if they really want to become adults. They can only hope that along the way as they grow up they won't drift apart, as most relationships between the young never last.
Airi may sleep in the library during breaks, so Homura wakes Airi up so that she isn't late for something such as class. Homura chats with Airi to learn about the world for when she tries to realistically writes novels, as Airi has had much more experience in life than her. Homura and Airi consider each other to be friends, even if they don't hang out much.
They tend to not notice each other as both of them can be fairly quiet. They usually only get together through mutual friends but every so often Homura goes up and talks to Barakou about novels and cooking in an attempt to open up. Homura isn't particularly interested in the genres Barakou reads and doesn't always cook what Barakou likes, but Homura tries to make it work.
Chikako often hugs and jokes with Homura just to see her smile and blush. Homura has tried to avoid Chikako, but it has never worked. So instead, Homura started to scare Chikako back, which ended up almost giving the poor girl a heart attack. Homura is a bit jealous of Chikako.
Homura has been forgiving to Erisa when the latter would make mistakes because the former knows what it's the feeling that one had failed so much. Erisa is grateful and the two both have a lot of support to give. They share cooking tips and secrets when together.
Homura and Fano share a similar sweet nature, a penchant for writing, and a love for ice cream. The small age gap clearly means nothing to them as they try to hang out quite frequently. Homura has learned not to lean on Fano as much as she once did. Instead, Homura would rather have it the other way around.
Himari may visit the Cooking Club for the free food, which is where the two usually bump into each other. Homura regards Himari as the mooch who surprisingly doesn't need a diet, but Himari doesn't care. Homura takes delight in giving Himari food in exchange for favors.
Jirou spends his time home locked up in his office and out making business deals, without much of a word to say to his daughters. Homura understands and is glad to see him visit at special events, such as her birthday.
These two girls usually pair up in Art Club for activities because both of them are the quiet ones. They typically talk about the latest books they've read and different drawing tips and artists when together. Homura and Minori consider each other to be a good friend, but they're not too close.
Homura notices that Rie seems to be hiding behind a mask, but she doesn't know why. She sometimes brings up the subject to Rie, but Rie denies any such thing. The two usually end up chatting in the library about their club, fashion, books, food, and boys. Rie helps Homura with makeup and clothes in case she really wants to dress to impress.
Homura has tried to befriend Rie before, but Rie usually turns her down. Rie finds Homura to be extremely annoying and once came close to attacking the girl. Homura never notices, but she does not that something is off about Rie's behavior with others. She keeps an eye on the girl and is sure to keep her distance. However, Homura isn't pointing fingers yet.
Homura caught onto his true tight-lipped nature and wants to offer free hugs to Rowan, although on some days she can be too shy to do so. Even though he tends to lie, she forgives him for it but also reprimands him. Homura trusts him and they're quite close, so she'll run to him if she ever witnesses a murder. They enjoy talking about their favorite books together. Rowan loves to eat whatever Homura may cook.
Sachiko and Homura see each other from time to time in the library, but don't talk much about books. Instead, they share a taste for sweets and can sometimes be seen choosing the same desserts to eat. Homura bakes some food and invites Sachiko over, knowing that she'll love it.
Suzume is too busy to see her daughter, which is unfortunate as the both would like a closer bond like other families. Suzume makes sure that the butlers and maids keep Homura safe and well-fed while she is away. She disapproves of Homura working at the ice cream parlor, but doesn't say anything.
Teruko looks up to her older sister in spite of how Homura has been in the past. Teruko is usually busy off at other places with friends or school, so they don't see each other often. Nonetheless, they care for one another and Teruko puts aside some time so that they can chat.
