Dear Cici

You have been an inspiration of love, joy, & courage for as long as I have known you. These beautiful attributes that you poured upon the tribe and the world continue throughout eternity…

Dear Cici, I miss you but know you are always near… every time I see an act of love or feel the strength of courage welling up…

I miss you and send you so very much love.

On Two Ends

Okay so there’s just a couple of things I wanted to point out.

1) Was Natsu’s character development after the tragedy he has suffered

Basically, not only is natsu still grieving but he is more I want to say passionate (but I don’t think that fits it just right) but anywho he’s putting the safety of his fellow comrades on his shoulder’s he holds himself responsible for the death of igneel to the point where he went off to train leaving his namaka behind so he could protect them. I believe if something were to happen to his other comrades he would hold himself responsible which is not a good thing at all.

2) I think lucy has lost some of her confidence in the whole theme of friendships and the bonds of love

I just want to make it clear that I’m not saying she doesn’t love her namaka but she may have lost some of her trust in them due to the disbandment of the guild. I mean come on if you were in a guild that was always like we stick together or I wont let you hurt them because we are namaka and then they disband… well it does lose a lot of its credibility even though the reason was reasonable. Okay so now back to why I think lucy has lost some of her trust or confidence in the theme.

so look at the faces of these  guys

They are smiling about what natsu is saying about his comrades and basically everything fairy tail was about and what they stood for really I think what natsu believes is namaka

then we have lucy

She’s the only one not smiling and agreeing she appear to be almost suprised by those words like “are they still true” but it’s not the first time she’s done this

Other than the jelly Natsu. when gray tells her that he still considers them friends like you would think that after all of this she’d know that. Once again she seems soooo happy to know that they are still friend but then why is she doubting it It’s the same thing with her not seeing them after the time skip. Yes she was afraid but afraid of what? Most likely that they wouldn’t want to be with her anymore which goes back to her dad issues and whole bunch of other things but seriously this is so fucked up

Lastly I just wanted to say it’s almost funny even though it’s not that their character development is kinda the opposite. Like now Natsu is more of my namaka I’m not losing you and is just so much bigger on it then ever before and lucy’s like but is it true it’s almost as shes lost faith….no that’s not it. maybe important for later development?

As you can tell I’m struggling to get my point across but like do you get it because honestly I think I get what I am saying… I think anywho I got bored and saw this also I haven done this in a while so it was time. Im just rambling lalalalalalalalal. OK I think I’m done

I’m not saying that video games can cure grief or that I should project my feelings onto a virtual make-believe world with set rules and limits to human emotional responses. That I expect I will be miraculously cured. That I will somehow find universal answers to cure sadness. No—what I am saying is that cancer, sickness, and death SUCK. They make you sad, angry, frustrated, hopeless, exhausted, and so many other emotions I haven’t managed to name yet, but that have been tangled in a ball at the back of my throat for the last six months.

I’m saying that having a virtual space to play some of these feelings out—even if it is artificial, even if it is controlled—can give you a sense of release, a sense of accomplishment, and a sense of purpose. No matter how fabricated, that can keep you going a couple more days.

A miscarriage is a natural and common event.  All told, probably more women have lost a child from this world than haven’t.  Most don’t mention it, and they go on from day to day as if it hadn’t happened, so people imagine that a woman in this situation never really knew or loved what she had. 

But ask her sometime: how old would your child be now?  And she’ll know.
