"Pigs, do your best for a year, and as a reward, I’ll step on you."
Lady Satsuki wishing us all a happy new year!
…No, I seriously know authors of ff.net who have done this.
I wonder when these moments will pass, when a day will come where I am no longer Ryuko’s Sunday Best, her favorite outfit. Like all clothes, I’ll be outgrown. When we achieve victory, Ryuko will have no further need for me. She has to find her happiness, and I saw it, inside of her…
…a life that I could never give her.
My best friend will be gone one day to find her happiness. No longer will we fight together, her heartbeat isn’t destined to become my own. I know her, she is stubborn. She’ll fight the tides of fate until she is washed away, beyond my reach. Can you feel it, my friend? Can you feel how terrified I am of this day?
Perhaps I am selfish. No, I certainly am selfish. I do not want to share you. I don’t want to be left gathering dust in the back of your closet. When my purpose at your side has been served, what then? Am I to live on as souvenir and reminder of our time together — a fond memory?
I want to be the one who provides this happiness for you.
But how could I? I am merely…me.
I want to be the man in that suit.
I want it to be our happiness.
"Tell me what you see."
"There, right? There’s the two ears and head!"
"And there…there’re its two feet!"
"Yes. What else?"
"And…and the moon! The moon is its big round belly!"
"…will you be here next year?"
"Yep, will you?"
"Same place, same time?"
"Yes, but what if you forget…or get lost?"
"Then we can always regroup on the moon, silly! Right on the rabbit’s tummy!"
