YOU ARE COOL ENOUGH FOR THIS MEME BUT MY SELECTION WON’T FIT IN YOUR ASK BOX. SO HERE:
“What is his name?” Azrael’s eyes shot up to the sword mounted on the wall of her apartment. Nanatsusaya rarely spoke, but when it did it was to ask questions of the world around it. “Can you hear me, Azrael? What is his name?”
“Who?” Silver eyes nervously scanned around her sparsely decorated apartment, empty as expected.
“You’re always thinking about him. Even now.” Its voice was gentle, kind, and almost loving; but she couldn’t shake the feeling of familiarity that followed every word it spoke.
“Be quiet.” Azrael stood and retreated into the bathroom, locking the door in an effort to get away from the blade that God had given to her. She avoided eye contact with the mirror and splashed water on her face, spitting the phantom taste of blood into the sink.
Does he look anything like me? She screamed. The voice had been inside her head and the dark silhouette in the corner of her eyes was unmistakably him. On instinct she picked up a heavy glass soap tray and flung it at the mirror, his figure multiplied into every broken fractal of glass. With a sob Azrael sunk to the ground to escape him, only to find him crawling towards her until her mind replayed the physical memory of his cheek against hers.
I’ve missed you. He vanished and wide silver eyes frantically searched for him, she stumbled back into the living room; she knew that he was already gone.
“Take me with you!” Nanatsusaya called as she reached the front door, and she stared at the sword; a vicious grin spread over her wild expression.
Obviously I’m in the mood to be depressed. XD Commentary?
Where do I start with this one? There’s a lot of ‘between the lines’ going on in this scene, a lot of setup here. Because there is a giant chunk of the timeline that has yet to be explored, even by me in some aspects. They’ve taken this story from me, its not mine anymore; its belongs to them. Which alone speaks volumes about Az and Luc as individuals and libraries about Az and Luc as a pair.
But the most important thing to come out of this part is that its the breaking point. The last sentence is the sound of the ropes breaking, from that moment forward she is beyond reason and salvation. Lucifer has become the driving force behind her madness and he’s become everything that she needs to destroy to prove her loyalty to God. ← lol more setup
By this point she’s had Nanatsusaya for months, she’s spent every waking moment since ‘The Field’ thinking of Lucifer. ‘I miss you' is still running through her head, but she hasn't heard it in his voice since Uriel took her to see a healer. She can still feel his lips on hers, and tries to hold onto that feeling by pressing her fingertips to her mouth. She's already doing double takes to make sure that a face in the crowd isn't his, he's already cemented his place in her heart; she can't shake him off.
Its not Nanatsusaya’s ‘overwhelming evil’ that drove her crazy, its it’s voice. She knows that voice; but its too gentle, too adoring, too unlike the man she’s known for all of her adult life.
Finally Nanatsusaya decides to ask, because he can see that whoever this man is, the memory of him is consuming her. Getting called out on it sends her into a panic, if a sword can see it then everyone and anyone around her can too. (reminder: Do the Jibriel prequel soon, cause COS’s Jib-chan is a badass.)
The last shred of her sanity is torn from her the moment the voice in her head becomes Lucifer’s again, and he might just be a ghost in the corner of her eye; but he’s there and that enough to make him real. And the person that is left from that is everything that God ever intended her to be. She’s death and chaos, wrapped up in long elegant limbs that have never known mercy.
