“These red roses might start wilting I do not know for whom I arranged the bouquet You? or Me?”
“Perhaps their decay speaks of the roads we’ve traveled and of the many flowers picked along such weathered paths”
“Perish the thought
as the memories follow suit the tears and blood I once had
do not flow for you anymore Is this… compensation?”
“It’s apprehension to forget reluctance to admit the beauty of dead roses The bad taste left in your mouth when the bottle of wine is empty.
This is… Every moment we’ve laughed ourselves to tears, bled in each others arms, and our attempt to say it meant something, despite everything.”
“Then take the petals rip them apart and ferment
their essence and make them
live as a perfume to decorate
your natural oils and scents I’ll trickle what little blood
I’ve left to add the taste and enjoy the trance
as I flee the thorns
and plant vanilla beans”
“You’ve always been a good runner, and at leaving me with pretty smells My stomach is too full with your ruby tears, because of the spikes I wear that have pushed you away Just please take my sorrow, and I’ll keep my remorse Grow your garden, with everything sweet, to wash away how bitter I’ve made you”
“I left the sweet extracts at your doorstep In hopes that you could make
something new out of it No more words, no more tears, I find the overflowing superfluous
and this small gift all I need”
“Superfluity in regards to love is the saddest thing I’ve ever heard… Those roses look wilted now anyways I think they were meant for the grave If you ever grow more
just keep them for yourself and say that they’re from me I’ve always been bad at apologies, and I don’t expect to be forgiven No more words… No more tears… Throw the bouquet in the remains of what we were, so we can both just walk away”
This is my first collaboration, which I did with @virgilioastram, and I’m quite satisfied with how it turned out. It was really fun to work with someone on a piece, and V’s a cool person to chat with anyway, so go pop in an’ check ‘em out.
Gravity Rush 2 x NieR Automata Costume DLC will be available for free on PS Store Japan starting tomorrow. But it’ll be available only for a limited time (April 27 - May 9). It contains 2B outfits on Kat. It’ll be available on 2 versions, with and without visor.
That Free DLC will also head to the West on May 5. Shunsuke Saito, Gravity Rush 2 character designer, created an artwork of Kat x 2B crossover in commemoration of the collaboration
