more friendship GOODNESS YES THANK YOU.
guys you already know how much i ADORE usagi and minako’s relationship (its a lot, for those of you who dont) and this is a really important one.
here we have sad usagi with ami & mako doing their best to cheer her up with talk of cakes and whatever, but its not doing it. not even mako-chan’s homemade cakes will pull usagi from her own thoughts right now.
but then here comes minako with the right answer, like she always does.
i truly feel like minako can read usagi better then anymore- even better then mamoru can. she knows what usagi’s feeling right now: concern for seiya. and she knows how she can fix it: get usagi in contact with seiya. so minako does what she does best- she snoops. she makes phone calls. she’s contacts everyone and anyone she can until she has AT LEAST a phone number to give to usagi.
whats even better- minako doesnt even necessarily feel like this is the best choice for usagi. she may even downright agree with the outers approach (tbh i cant fully remember so this is speculation on my part lol) to this whole thing. usagi hanging out with seiya is going to get her hurt somehow and the inners cant just let that happen. rei and mako would fight tooth and nail to ensure they stay apart & ami would speak soft, calming words to try and explain why this has to be the way its done. but minako… she’d be stoic and silent, knowing that sure it was what was best for usagi, but at the same time she knows the only way to ease usagi’s guilt is to bring them together again
its not what minako wants to do, but at that moment it was what was best for usagi. so minako got her that number and watched her run off with the first smile in days, knowing she’d done the right thing.
rei would yell at her, but she’d done the right thing all the same.
