Itachi making a deal with death that he can repeat life as many times as he needs to until he figures out the perfect sequence of events that will lead to the optimal outcome for everyone he cares about, but only when he reaches peace will the cycle end. 

Cue hundreds of variations. In some, the clan survives but the village dies. He always tries not to hurt Sasuke and he always fails. Worst still are the times that Sasuke isn’t born at all. The family dies, the village goes on. In others still, the village and the clan survive but the world ends. He spends years upon years in a Tsukuyomi nightmare until the grand tree finally saps the last of his energy dry and the cycle repeats. Thousands of years, hundreds of variations.

Until, eventually, he goes through the steps as he first remembers them. The clan falls, he loses his honor, he falls from grace and dances familiar events with a levity that he didn’t remember the first time around. Hundreds of variations, hundreds and thousands of changes and THIS is still the optimal outcome and even as his heart breaks he presses his head to Sasuke’s and this will be the LAST time. 

Nerd Update (AKA, CS + ESC)

Managed to write a program that scraped the Wikipedia articles for Eurovision 2008-2017 and saved into a CSV file the year, show (which semi, or if it was the Grand Final), running order, country, title, artist, language, points, and ranking of each song for all those years.

Will have to fine tune it so it doesn’t break for all the other years (where the rules were different, aka either one or no semifinal).
