DI I HAVE A PROMPT FOR THE WRITING MEME IF YOU ARE STILL ACCEPTING THEM: RayeDi, Hayao Miyazaki
Okay, Alex, because I adore you, this is the last one I’m going to fill. *squishes*
Raye/Di; Miyazaki (Spirited Away):
Di nearly drops the water bucket when she walks into the house. “Raye, what are you doing?”
Raye barely glances up. She’s busy stuffing her knapsack with provisions. “I’m going to Yubaba’s."
"What?” shrieks Di, nearly releasing the heavy water bucket onto her bare feet. She leaves it by the door and races to her friend’s side. “Raye, think about this for a second. Yubaba’s the most powerful witch in the spirit world. You can’t do this.” Her friend ignores her, almost entirely except for the grimace that has now inked its way onto her face. “Raye?” Di pleads.
“I’m done living as a lost spirit, Di,” she says finally, her tone hard. “We deserve better than this. All our magic–it’s gone. Look at you,” she gestures to the water bucket, the tattered robes, “you’ve basically been reduced to nothing more than a human.”
“I don’t see what’s wrong with that,” Di whispers, twisting her hands into her dirty, old robes.
“I’ll become her apprentice, and then when I’ve learned enough magic, we’ll revive our springs in human world and take our place as honored spirits."
"They built cities over us,” Di says weakly. “Raye, it’s impossible. Just stay here. Yubaba can’t hurt us here.”
Raye throws the bag over her shoulder. “Are you coming with me?"
Di stares at her, shocked. "If I say no, are you just going to leave me here?"
Raye’s determination appears to falter. "If you don’t come with me, I’ll have to go alone,” she responds, softer.
“She’s going to make you give up something important, Raye,” Di tells her, brow furrowed. “Maybe your name, or your memories…your heart? Maybe all of it? What will you do then?”
Raye glances outside, at the rising dawn. “I’ll make that decision when I come to it.”
Di takes the amulet hanging around her neck and places it in her friend’s palm. “I’m not going with you, Raye,” she murmurs. “I hope this brings you luck.” Without warning, she pulls her into an embrace. “Please return safely.”
DI OMG A SHOUJO BORRA WOULD ONLY BEGIN A TORNADO OF FEELS AND A FLOOD OF TEARS. I WOULD ENJOY THIS CONCEPT VERY MUCH
RAYE, OMG HEADCANON WITH MEEEE
Because oh gosh, I only have a slight idea about how this would all go down. I mean, would Bolin be a 1st year going to a new school? Or…does he meet Korra in a flurry of sakura blossoms outside the gates as she races to class, late as always, with a piece of bread stuck between her teeth? Does she want to join the school wrestling team and he’s the only on the team to take her seriously and show her some moves?
FFFFFFFFF “KORRA-SENPAI” /ROLLS CACKLING OFF THE HILLSIDE
