Before you go any further what do you think the price will end up being and what will happen?
I’M SORRY ANON I HAVE NO REALLY GOOD ANSWERS.
It won’t be a sword or a weapon or anything like last time. That’s too easy, and not worth an equal exchange.
It could be Kurogane’s memories of his family, because that would be very similar to Syaoran’s price for saving Sakura. I suppose “Fai’s memories of Kurogane” would also be an option, but I don’t think they would pull that twice. The rest of the narrative would be a bit strange if they went that way again.
As it is, Kurogane can’t kill anything, so it won’t be that. Unless (perhaps?) it’s him adopting that curse FOREVER in exchange for Fai’s life. That might be nice and poetic. I’m not sure if sealing away his ninja abilities would be a huge price compared to the life of someone like Fai, but still technically possible I suppose.
The price I really like the sound of is Kurogane’s ability to return to Tomoyo. That’s already been established as the Most Important Thing to him (as it was both his first wish and clarified as his motivation several times since then) so trading Kurogane’s Life With Tomoyo might actually be a nice equal trade to make to save Fai’s life. That’s essentially trading his entire future for another different one.
If they go that route they’d probably still GET to Tomoyo, as Kurogane’s wish still needs to come true since he’s already paid for it, but he won’t be able to stay and has to leave it behind forever when Mokona leaves the world to continue the journey.
Those are my only guesses so far BUT CLAMP HAS BEEN KNOWN TO DO EVERYTHING THAT I NEVER EXPECTED SO LOOK FORWARD TO ME PROBABLY CRASHING AND BURNING ON THIS POINT.
We are hours away from The Punisher finally premiering!!! This over-a-year long wait has been so insane but in the best possible way. To everyone in the fandom, you guys are honestly awesome! Just the nicest group and all the content you guys create is just so incredibly wonderful, I cannot wait to see what you all do with the new material we’re going to get :)
I’ll be MIA until tomorrow night when I’ve (hopefully) finished the entire show!!
To everyone watching this weekend: HAVE FUN!!! WE FINALLY MADE IT!!!
