SAKURA DID A THING!
I’m so pleased.
Because Chu’nyan has a very legitimate reason to be upset over this. Like I said just before, this struggle is basically her entire life. It took everything she had and left her with nothing, and she’s tried so hard for so long to try and make things right. Only now these new guys are gonna go off and fix it straight away with out any input from her whatsoever. It must hurt her so much.
Which isn’t to say it doesn’t hurt Syaoran to do it either. He has that “dark decisions” look to his face when he’s actually quite upset about something but isn’t letting any of it show on his face. Instead he has to show a bit of a cruel facade to keep Chu’nyan from coming along, because she won’t listen to anything said nicely (ie, Fai).
But Sakura is there to pick up the pieces and support Chu’nyan when she needs it the most, AND I’M SO GLAD THAT SAKURA IS DOING AT LEAST SOMETHING THAT THIS IS ALL WAY MORE EXCITING TO ME THAN IT PROBABLY LOOKS.
LOOK AT SAKURA GO. She was comatose just a few days ago, but now she’s not only coping with the very weird backstory that everyone had to explain to her but she can actually read the correct character motivations behind what these people (that she doesn’t really know ) do, match it to the inconsistency of what they’re actually doing, and explain it to Chu’nyan in a gentle way, even though she doesn’t know her that well either.
Sakura you guys.
