War, terrible war. Widows, orphans, a motherless child. This was the uprising that rocked our land. Thirteen districts rebelled against the country that fed them, loved them, protected them. Brother turned on brother until nothing remained. And then came the peace, hard fought, sorely won. A people rose up from the ashes and a new era was born. But freedom has a cost. When the traitors were defeated, we swore as a nation we would never know this treason again. And so it was decreed that, each year, the various districts of Panem would offer up, in tribute, one young man and woman to fight to the death in a pageant of honor, courage and sacrifice. The lone victor, bathed in riches, would serve as a reminder of our generosity and our forgiveness. This is how we remember our past. This is how we safeguard our future.

Laputa: Castle in the Sky (天空の城ラピュタ)  //  complementary colors

This is no longer a throne room. This is a tomb for the both of us. You see, a king without compassion does not deserve a kingdom. You will never possess the crystal! You and I will die here, together. Now I understand why the people of Laputa vanished. No matter how many weapons you have, no matter how great your technology might be, the world cannot live without love.
