mokona's me

I LOVE THIS.

Kamui is SHOCKED that Kurogane would have agreed to this without actually knowing exactly what he was getting into.

But Kurogane is just like DON’T CARE.

IT WASN’T AN ISSUE. 

ANY PRICE TO HIMSELF WAS WORTH KEEPING FAI ALIVE.

HE WASN’T GOING TO WAIT ANY LONGER TO FIND OUT THE SPECIFICS

(especially after that extra long speech Subaru god damn)

GUYS HE?

LOVES?

FAI SO MUCH??

OK THAT IS A LOT TO PROCESS AT ONCE.

STARTING AT THE TOP I GUESS.

Kurogane just straight out dismisses whatever Yuuko was thinking (becaue Kurogane) and instead explains that he put all his trust in Mokona.

And we’re building directly off the explanation that both Kurogane’s AND Fai’s lives were on the line here. He trusts Mokona IMPLICITLY to the point that he trusted whatever deal Mokona was willing to facilitate to keep Fai alive.

But also. Like.

Kurogane: *explains how he trusts Mokona quite literally with his life without thinking*

Also Kurogane: *still refuses to use her name*

MOKONA’S HAPPY SMILE THOUGH

EVEN AS SHE CRIES THROUGH THE AGONY OF FAI’S TRANSFORMATION

OH MY LORD THIS IS A MOMENT™

Meanwhile, Yuuko goes on to explain that if they ever do manage to get Fai both his eyes back, he will have enough magic to just UNDO his own vampirism.

Which is fascinating in its own right, but in terms of characterisation I love the fact that in no part was this part of the deal when Kurogane accepted it. There’s a possible way out of it now, but Kurogane didn’t know that. Kurogane was willing to accept a joint existence with Fai for the rest of their lives.

No, not just ‘willing’. He DID accept that joint life. Until this moment that’s what he thought the deal WAS.

And I’m not entirely convinced they will get that eye back, so maybe that’s a moot point to begin with.

Bonus question: If they did eventually get the eye back… after living as Kurogane’s partner for so long, would Fai want to take his eye back, if it meant he would then outlive Kurogane?

FUN THOUGHTS

i redrew the first ever watanuki i drew 4 years ago!
looking back at old art is super embarrassing LOL

I want to call bullshit on sheer principle but it’s APPARENTLY WORKING, SO. 

I immediately have ten thousand questions. 

Including, how?

And also why?

Did he know about Mokona or was he just protecting it from everyone in general? So that Kamui and co couldn’t find it? Because I’m PRETTY SURE THEY KNEW WHERE TO LOOK FOR IT, FUUMA. YOU LIKE IN THE ONLY OTHER BUILDING LEFT IN THE WORLD. IT’S KIND OF HARD TO MISS. 

But also I don’t know what kind of power Fuuma has that just lets him hide the presence of the feathers from every other hugely powerful being on the planet (ie, not just all of the X/1999 crew, but also Mokona and FAI - and by extension, AutoPilot Syaoran), but if HE can do it, WHO ELSE CAN DO IT?

HOW MANY OTHER WORLDS MIGHT HAVE FEATHERS THAT THEY COULD NEVER FIND IF SOMEONE CAN JUST CASUALLY HIDE IT FROM DETECTION?

FUUMA ONCE AGAIN YOU ARE RUINING EVERYTHING WITHOUT EVEN TRYING.

Okay so, full admission, in the previous page I wasn’t entirely sure what it was that was intercepting the arrow in mid-air. Part of me thought it might be Mokona, because how awesome would that be, but this. Is even better.

Kurogane throws a rock.

He just.

He sees some random guy pointing a crossbow at Syaoran. And he picks up a ROCK.

FROM THE GROUND.

AND THROWS IT SO FAST.

AND SO HARD.

THAT HE KNOCKS THAT BOLT RIGHT OUT OF THE AIR.

WITH A  R O C K.

Kurogane is not messing around you guys.

“This is a magic wall,” he says, quickly followed by, “I mean, probably. It’s not like I would anything about magic. Right? Ha, as if that would happen! Magic is.. not even…a thing? Who even knows about Magic? NOT ME, THAT’S FOR SURE. Why, I have never even seen magic in my entire life. Not once. Ever.”

Meanwhile other jokes are happening on the page and I still don’t know how I feel about this but AT LEAST IT’S BETTER THAN I WAS EXPECTING SO.

Also like. As someone who knows how heavy bookshelves are? Wow. 

As someone who knows how heavy even SMALL bookshelves are? Even when they have wheels? Even when they are not TWENTY FEET TALL AND STACKED WITH BOOKS FROM BOTTOM TO TOP? 

Guys this is more impressive than punching through a brick wall I’M TELLING YOU.

I know the ‘ha’ it’s the sound effect for hard breathing as Watanuki runs for his life but it also looks like the giant off screen ~mystery thing~ is just slowly laughing at him. 

And I say ~mystery thing~ but it’s definitely Mokona. 

GIANT MOKONA FINDS YOUR JOKES MODERATELY AMUSING, WATANUKI. 

BUT ONLY MODERATELY SO. 

I…

Oh. 

Oh NO. 

NO MOKONA DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. 

MOKONA N O.

Kurogane immediately tries to recover his reputation by sounding mad and using angry speech but it has no effect on anyone whatsoever and I’m thrilled to bits. 

THEY KNOW YOU, KUROGANE. THERE IS NO HIDING ANYMORE. 

But I’m endlessly amused that Mokona’s Empathy Radar is so effective that it even hones in on HUNGER. 

I know that feeling. ‘Almost unbearable’ is absolutely correct. 

I will never recover from Mokona’s fountain of hearts while physically attached to the front of Kurogane’s face. 

Never.
