My headcanons say hello! 
This is for Dasha, who made me ship it. Curse you! JK. Also, I don’t think I’ve had the best grip on their characters, considering the limited view we have had of them. So, I do apologize for any mistakes in characterization. Feel free to discuss.

His friends catch him staring at her. The other teases him about it, but Touma just gives him a look. It asks, do you like her? But he is caught off-guard and embarrassed, so he denies everything. It makes them think he likes her, but he doesn’t. He’s curious, because she is not what she seems.
When Makita has to eat alone because all her friends are busy somewhere, she is joined by Touma’s group. She doesn’t want to sit with them, because it feels like pity. Touma greets her unsurely, and she is reminded of the fact that maybe her disapproval of him makes him uncomfortable. Uchimiya and his other friend pats Touma’s head and greets her with laughter. Uchimiya doesn’t mention anything about her looking lonely or eating alone. She approves. His other friend proceeds to steal her food when she’s not looking, and Touma gives her one of his in return, because he feels responsible. Uchimiya smiles at her, all through lunch.
When Makita gets angry at one of them, they are afraid. His friend exclaims, “That girl has a scary look in her eyes.” Uchimiya can’t help but agree, “I know.”
Futaba asks her if she likes Uchimiya. The question comes out of nowhere that she answers with a stammering, “What?” Futaba explains, “I see you guys a lot. When you’re not with us, you’re with him. So, I thought…” Makita thinks about it, “Really?”
Uchimiya is always the one who finds her when she’s crying. She wants him to go away, and she hides her face in her blazer. Her voice comes out muffled, “Can you please pretend that I’m not crying and just go on your merry way?” She hears footsteps, and she wishes that it would hurry away so she can continue crying. But she feels him sit next to her, and despite him being there, her tears won’t stop flowing. He stays with her, pats her head in comfort, and sings until she calms down. She says thank you, and he smiles. Neither of them mention it again.
But just because they don’t say anything, it doesn’t mean nothing’s changed. Makita smiles really sweetly at him, when he greets her. In the morning, one can often see them talking at her shoe locker. When Makita gets mad at him, it isn’t as scary as before. It often feels like she’s teasing him. He also doesn’t stop staring. Touma has to jab him with his elbow, because it’s so obvious. 
On her birthday, they’re having a concert. Uchimiya points at her in the crowd and gets everybody to sing Happy Birthday to her. She’s blushing at the attention, but she smiles all the same. She jumps to the beat of the music, holding hands with Shuuko and Futaba, and thinks, this is her favorite birthday ever.  
He gets chocolate on Valentine’s. He has about 5 seconds to feel special, before she turns to Touma and gives him chocolates too. He feels even less special when she turns to his other friend and gives him chocolate. But he and his friends are the only one she gives them to in their class, and he can’t help but feel smug. 
Sometimes, he forgets that she’s popular because she’s really pretty. He’s reminded of this when he hears the other boys talk about her, and they sigh, because it doesn’t seem like she is ever gonna look their way. He is so unused to the thought of her being a girl, because to him, she’s not just a girl. When he thinks about her crying on her own at an empty rooftop and then seeing her standing and smiling, he thinks of her as something else. When he thinks of her annoyance and the fear she inspires, he’s amazed. When she looks him right in the eye and hits him with a smile, he can’t look away. She’s absolutely glorious, and he feels sorry for those who can’t see past her cuteness. 
But, it’s not like he doesn’t think she’s cute either. Because, he does. He really really does. Especially when she crinkles her nose, the fond smile she gives Touma when he shares his gummy bears, or when she sighs after a long drink of her favorite milk tea. 
Makita winks when she catches him staring. The first time she does it, he blushes a brilliant red that could rival Touma’s. After a few more times, he just winks back. Their friends just shake their head at them.
Boys can’t talk to her when she’s hanging out with Touma’s group. They kind of took it upon themselves to act like the power rangers and protect her from boy cooties. At least that’s what one of them says. Touma denies everything. Uchimiya just grins at her. 
Shuuko warns Uchimiya that if he ever makes Makita cry, she’ll crush him like a bug under her shoes. Kominato just shakes his head at him. He is reminded of a movie he watched about the Yakuza. 
Makita regularly requests their band to do covers of her favorite songs. 
Uchimiya secretly panics when he sees his friends sad. He’s so used to them smiling and having fun, that the sight fills him with a sense of wrongness. The feeling extends to Makita, especially when he sees her break down after being strong for so long.
Makita supports Futaba a hundred and twenty percent, but even she can see that Kou only seems to make her sad. She feels bad when she tells Uchimiya this, because it feels like admitting she has lost. Uchimiya in turn admits that he thinks Touma’s going to get rejected, no matter how awesome he thinks Touma is. They both agree that in the end both of their friends make it out happy.
Touma manages to endear himself to her. She pouts about it to Shuuko, who replies, “He doesn’t seem too bad if he’s got a friend that loyal to him.” Uchimiya nods understandingly, “He does that.” Touma silently celebrates.
On White Day, the three of them sing a song for her too. Makita smiles, but complains that she wants something she can keep next time. 
Once, Uchimiya attends a meeting of the Makita Yuuri fanclub. He was tempted to correct all the facts that they got wrong and had to leave early. His friends ask why he even went in the first place. His answer, “I was just curious.”
Makita always makes some excuse as to why she can’t participate in gym. It’s one of the things she appreciates about her established cuteness. The boys always support her, but one day Uchimiya protests and tells her to just join. She ignores him the whole time when they play basketball on the same team. They lose. 
She is embarrassed when he asks if she really didn’t like Touma. What does he see between her and Touma that he keeps asking that question? He replies that, “Well, you’re always smiling  when you’re with him.” She thinks he’s ridiculous, “Oh? Well, you’re always smiling when you’re with Touma. So maybe you like him…” And she’s teasing him, of course, but she didn’t think he was that much of an idiot. “NO. Nevermind,” He sputters and walks away. She doesn’t notice that he was asking for himself.
He thinks that she looks sad when she thinks nobody’s looking. Touma usually writes the songs for their band, but for once, he wants to write a happy song for her. 
When he’s sad, it’s very quiet, but he doesn’t hide it. She and Touma notice it, but lets him be. He knows that they are there for him if he ever needs them to listen. Makita finds him at the rooftop and sighs. She lets him rest his head on her lap, and she listens to him talk. When he tells her that they’re even, she shakes her head, “No. We don’t owe anything to each other. We’re friends.”
He likes patting her head, because she’s so cute when she gets both flustered and irritated. 
One time he asks her,”Who do you think is the cutest out of us three?” He regrets it when she says that it’s Touma. He pouts,”All the girls say it’s Touma. Is it because he blushes really easily and all the girls find that really cute?” Makita looks like she’s thinking of a reply, he puts a hand between them, “No, stop. This is hurting my self-esteem. Wait, I thought I was your favourite.” Makita smiles innocently, “I don’t play favourites, sorry.” His friends find them, him strumming sad songs on the guitar and her sipping her milk tea. 
They find themselves at the rooftop again. He tells her that she’s beautiful. She looks at him confused, because where did that come from? But blushes a warm red. He says it so calmly, like it’s a fact. She manages a squeaky what? And he goes on to explain, “I mean, I’ve never seen a girl who refuses to let anybody see her cry. Not only that, you manage to give everyone a smile. You smile when you’re happy. You smile when you’re sad. I don’t know how someone so short can inspire fear in people taller than her. You really have good taste in music, I mean you listen to us, right? And you stand up for what you believe in, and you won’t let anyone stop you from being the person you’re most in love with. It’s not surprising that you’re also a person worth falling in love with.” Makita covers her face in embarrassment. She peeks between her fingers to see him doing the same. She crinkles her nose at him, “Don’t copy me.” He actually pouts, “Do I take that as a sign of rejection or…” She smiles, “That wasn’t even a proper confession.” And he’s being dramatic when he sighs, “She speaks from experience!” But she’s used to it and just shakes her head, “No. I have standards.” She laughs at his expression and takes his hand and squeezes gently. “I’m dissappointed. I half-expected you to throw out some japanese poetry.” She watches as his expression sinks, “But since I do like you, I guess the way you did it is fine too.” 
The Makita Yuuri fanclub kicks him out a day after they announce that they’re dating. He keeps the t-shirt that they gave him though. 
Futaba squeals when she tells her and Shuuko is more quiet in her happiness, but both of them look at each other, as if they knew it was going to happen. 
When Makita isn’t looking, Futaba and Shuuko enact a scene by only using gestures to Uchimiya. Their message: if you break her heart, we will obliterate you to pieces. He’s more scared of Shuuko than Futaba. He also commends their wonderful acting. He especially likes the part where Shuuko crushes him to pieces, and Futaba blows the pieces into the wind.
His friend teases him, but Touma gives him two thumbs up. When they see Makita, they start apologizing for Uchimiya and all the things he’s bound to do wrong. “I hope you find it in your heart to forgive him when he can’t remember your birthday, or when he’s being too nosy. We apologize in advance if he sucks at kissing or if the only dates he takes you are to music stores. Please take care of him, remember to feed him and-” Uchimiya clamps his hands over their mouths. “Don’t listen to them.”  Before he drags them away, he kisses her cheek goodbye. “I’ll see you later, okay?” 
Their first kiss is in the middle of the argument. She makes the mistake of leaning close to his face. He makes the mistake of looking at her lips. She isn’t even done talking when he kisses the corner of her lips. “Can we please agree to disagree?” She nods, cupping his cheeks and finally kissing him.
She gives him a mixtape on his birthday. He is overwhelmed by the fact that he likes all the songs on it, that she knows him well enough to know what songs he’ll like. The next time he sees her, he hugs her so hard that they topple to the ground. 
They’re picnic people, rather than restaurant people. I can kinda see them spending time at a secluded corner under a tree or at their rooftop.
