THE GIFTENING 2016: The Last Time

This wasn’t going to be this, and then it was. ~700 words.

The Last Time

“Naru-chan? Naru-chan!”

Usagi’s voice strained against the panic beginning to flood her chest. The theater in Usagi’s mind played their entire lives together. Every late night phone call, every lunch shared (or mostly stolen, in Usagi’s case). Every laugh. Every tear.

Since becoming Sailor Moon, their friendship had cooled somewhat, but for Usagi, love was an infinite and self-renewing resource. It had been months since she and Naru had really spent time together. Different high schools was DEFINITELY to blame. And maybe being a soldier for love and justice. And maybe Usagi forgetting to call sometimes. The point was, for Usagi, once she loved someone, the intensity of that love never faded, and seeing Naru lying on the ground, cold and unmoving, was a knife sinking into her heart.

Naru’s name tore through her again. Barely conscious of what she was doing, Usagi shook the body, slowly at first, and then with mounting desperation, willing life back into it. She didn’t know how long she’d been gripping Naru’s shoulders, and wasn’t sure how long she would’ve kept crying her name, but a firm hand stilled her. Usagi turned her red-rimmed eyes up to Rei – not Sailor Mars, and distantly Usagi realized she’d dropped her transformation too (can’t let Naru see she already suspects too much, and Usagi felt a bolt of hate for herself that was nowhere near as unfamiliar as she’d like).

“She’ll be fine,” Rei insisted, her voice harsh but her eyes soft. Usagi felt her grip on Naru easing. “You healed her, just like all the others. Give her a minute.”

Nodding, Usagi sat back on her heels and waited. It was hard (it was so hard to wait for people to come back to you and Usagi always always ALWAYS had to wait it made her so angry sometimes), and the silence was becoming uncomfortable. The others hovered nearby, wanting to help but unsure how. They thought Usagi didn’t see the flicker of guilt in their eyes, but she always did. Loving them didn’t mean not loving Naru, but the words seemed too big. She’d tried to get Mamoru to help her make it smaller, once, but all he could say was “Life happens like that sometimes”, and Usagi still didn’t understand why.

Naru breathed a small groan, and all of Usagi’s attention snapped into focus. She’d learn from this. Rei was always telling her she never did that, but this time, she would. Naru was important and necessary, and Usagi would make sure she knew she was, that she always had been. Usagi leaned forward, a loving smile spreading across her face.

Naru’s eyes slowly fluttered open, but they spun, unable to settle on anything. There was no indication she knew Usagi, or anyone, was nearby. Painfully, her eyes closed again, and Naru drug a weak hand across her face.

“Not again,” she sighed, and Usagi chuckled to herself, ready with one of their old jokes about Naru’s unusual rate of youma attacks. She felt it on the tip of her tongue, bright like a sweet candy. Naru would laugh, and she would laugh, and they’d all go for sundaes.

“Yeah, you—“

“I can’t wait to get out of Japan.”

It fell on Usagi all at once. The attack at the airport. The star student with a bright future. “Sailor Transfer.”

Naru hadn’t even said goodbye.

Usagi rolled to her feet and a longer stride than the others were used to taking her almost to the terminal exit before the others could catch up.

“Are we just leaving her?”

“Where are we going?”

“Don’t you think we should wait for medical personnel?”

“Usagi?”

She didn’t answer, and was silently grateful when her Senshi stopped asking.  How could she explain?

Naru hadn’t said goodbye.

Usagi wasn’t about to make her.

A plane roared overhead, and while Naru couldn’t possibly be on it, Usagi watched it rise until it disappeared, swallowed by clouds. Tears pricked at her eyes, but she didn’t cry, and while her smile was sad, it was genuine. Maybe life really was like that sometimes. Usagi wondered if it was a good or bad thing that she’d probably never understand.

“Goodbye, Naru-chan.”

afterwards, you stretch empty fingers
into dream-space, wishing
for your own adventure. you pray
 
your hand closes around a dragon egg,
a jewelled sword-hilt,
a bloodstained rose, a crown.
 
you keep your eyes on your shadow,
keep your eyes open
as night’s breathing slows, waiting.
 
the air smells like snow, sharp and clean;
you exhale hard, picturing smoke-clouds,
picturing flames. patience remains
 
fleet-footed as a nymph, her laugh
as mocking. renown lives in distant mountains
past realms unknown, but here,
 
beauty grabs your wrist as you pass,
a bright-eyed temptress draped
in frozen pine needles.
 
afterwards, you build your own story.
you name your favourite pen,
compare word counts like a kill count, argue
 
the merits of quality over quantity. palms
dripping dream-dust, you shape your own world,
your own adventure, chase magnificence
 
at the speed of thought — you know it is yours,
surely as the long-lost heirs of faraway lands
believe in a waiting throne.
—  glorification, for @mirrorsandwindowsabstractedfocus

Modern AU: Effie and Haymitch + instagram

“Laurens, I like you a lot..”

this panel was one of my faves from this update. obviously because of the In Love Boyfriends and jack’s big pupils and the blatant secret flirting and the happy, gay yellow …like all valid reasons. but on another level, this panel does something really neat stylistically within the whole of this particular update.

this update was crowded. like, literally. we start with bitty, faceless in a huge crowd with a very detailed background and lots of words on the page - there’s a lot to see, a lot to grab our attention. it’s busy and loud and there’s so much going on.

but despite all of that, this update really shows how far jack and bitty have come, both together, and as individuals - they’re both more at ease, more comfortable with themselves and who they are (bitty’s faced his fear of checking…i’m so proud!!!! and jack’s reached a place where he can express himself and be happy). their relationship (both as friends and boyfriends ahhh!! boyfriends!!!), once rocky and tense, has settled and become something good for the both of them, and not only can you see this in like the words they’re speaking or their facial expressions, but also in the way the comic is literally organized.
