Do you guys even know how HUGE this is?
Akko collected those cards religiously as a child and got all but this one. For Diana, of all people, to give it to her now, when Akko’s faith in Chariot is utterly depleted, must elicit so many things in Akko.
But even bigger than Akko receiving this final card, do you understand how huge it is for Diana to be giving it away?
Other than memories of the only Chariot show she ever saw, this card is all she had left. Of Chariot and of the dreams she had as a child. The dreams her mother went out of her way to let her have a chance at. The dreams that Diana’s family ridiculed and looked down on her for. The dreams only Bernadette supported her in having. Her mother was the only person in Diana’s life who supported her admiration of Chariot.
Chariot left the stage. Diana lost her magics for a time. Her mother died. Her responsibilities consumed her life and she had to relinquish her dreams of becoming like Chariot, though in her heart she still loved and admired her.
Diana kept this card in a special box. It is her treasure as Akko’s Chariot card is hers.
And Diana is giving it to Akko willingly. Without shedding a tear. Without regret. Because she trusts her with it. She knows Akko deserves to have it. She knows Akko needs it more than she does now.
