Rachel Amber is the fire that Chloe needs to stay away from
I love Amberprice. I will defend it til the very end. Would I fall for someone like Rachel Amber? Yes. Would I like to be friends with someone like Rachel Amber? Absolutely. Would I date Rachel Amber? No. Absolutely not. Not because of how smashy she gets when she’s angry, but because of how the tiny traits about her tips me off the wrong way.
Am I sure she really likes Chloe? No. Do I think she’s manipulating Chloe? Yes. Does Rachel’s actions and reactions to Chloe’s doubt to running away bother me?…
It VERY much bothered me.
I’d like to go back to this conversation:
They’re talking about Rachel. Hands down, that’s what I sincerely believe.
The first time you meet Rachel is intense. It’s like fire. It’s bright, and warm, and exhilarating. Rachel burns like fire. Brightly, and she’s the center of attention.
She becomes the center of Chloe’s attention.
She burns so brightly that the darkness of Chloe’s life is completely engulfed in this. I can’t find a video where Chloe says it, but in my play through, on the first episode, while talking to Joyce during breakfast, Chloe basically goes: We make bad choices when we’re dealing with losing someone. She’s basically judging her mother for choosing David so soon after she lost William.
Who else lost William, as well as a best friend, and started hanging out with the wrong crowd and making awful decisions in life?
So, if you eliminate fire. If you eliminate that bright bright light… what do you see?
Chloe doesn’t want that. She just wants to see…. Rachel provides her light. a direction. But perhaps that direction becomes too blinding and painfully burning as Chloe gets closer to it. That’s why, by the end of the episode, Chloe is so hesitant with leaving with Rachel. Chloe felt the warmth of the fire, but as she edges closer, she has to recoil for a moment because that fire is burning her. Eventually she gives in, after a promise.
Something solid – the bracelet
Something permanent – a tattoo
Something passionate – a kiss
Lesbi-honest… MOST of us, chose the most NON concrete way to make a promise: a kiss. We, as Chloe’s players, are pushing Chloe into the fire.
But here’s the thing, let’s jump ahead a little bit in the future okay?
Chloe loses Rachel anyway. She loses her fire. A very bright fire that she has been staring at for a while now. She’s back in darkness, but the fire left a mark on her. It didn’t burn her. It left that weird shape in her eyes that happens when one stares too long at something bright.
But slowly and surely, she starts seeing clearer. And in darkness.. what do you see when you look up?
Fire that shine billions of light years away. Safe to watch, untouchable, yet they’re still so beautiful. They give direction. If one knows how to read stars, you will know where to go just by using them
Who else is miles away? Who else is untouchable?
It’s a bit of a reach, but Max could have been that greater beauty.
A more logic reach is the end of Life is Strange (original), where Chloe realizes that she has been so focused on the fire (Rachel) and the hazy orb that the fire left (Rachel’s disappearance), that she failed to see the other beauty of her world (her mother, blackwell, Eliot (he’s a really good kid), Steph, Mikey, and maybe even David because he does have some lessons that make sense)
But Rachel isn’t just what made Chloe miss the finer things in her life… The darkness around her was dark enough that she couldn’t see….
So dark that she couldn’t see directions.
So how was she to know that looking up was all she needed to see the dim lights in her sky? How was she to know when Rachel Amber was this wildfire that gave her warmth but also misdirection?
I feel like (actually I KNOW) that when yall say that we have to break gender roles or post those cutesy “gender isnt real” posts/images all yall mean is “let boys wear crop tops uwu” and all that its always centered around men being cutesy which actually isnt frowned upon by women like at all… like Every ugly man thats feminine instantly gets 100k on instagram. yall only mean “let men wear pink” or “let my cute boyfie wear blush and highlight” its NEVER about gender non conforming women (lesbians !! butch lesbians!!!) you just dont care you say “break gender roles” all you want but you want people to break them to the point thats comfortable to YOU. The furthest you will go is straight skinny girls with pixie cuts and men wearing pink but you get uncomfortable the fucking second a woman DARES to be masculine the second she DARES to be unbothered by mens beauty standards and live comfortably the way she WANTS to and yall lose your minds the second you see a fat woman do that. All in all gnc positivity is so very much centred around men catering to straight girls fantasies of being ~soft boys~ while butches still and always will get tons of shit for merely existing as a lesbian and as a woman who isnt attractive to straight men.
Sugiyama Noriaki interview for “Otomedia” Magazine October 2017
Before we start I want to clarify 2 things:
1) I translated only Uchiha Family stuff (it’s about 80% of all interview). Maybe one day my laziness and self-confidence in my translating skills will let me translate it till the end (or someone else translates it) but for now only SasuSakuSara parts. 2) English is not my native language so if you see any grammatical, lexical and other mistakes or just don’t understand some parts feel free to write me.
tells about the final of the difficult situation that has developed in the
Was Sasuke (even in his own way) as nervous as Sarada was? While
emotions are increasing, the strength of their family’s bond warms the heart.
Is it really because of the nervousness in the 23 episode he doubts whether he should
poke Sakura’s forehead? We asked about this seiyuu of Sasuke, Noriaki Sugiyama.
words he said to Sakura: Are you really willing to do something so embarrassing
in front of your daughter?” It was funny to watch him teasing her (laughs)
It seemed to me this shyness was very much in Sasuke’s style. Honestly, after
the end of the recording, Naruto’s seiyuu, Takeuchi Junko, said to me:
“No, I don’t believe that he could do otherwise!” (laughs), probably
Takeuchi-san is right. “
We talked a lot with Sugiyama-san about
Sarada’s Story. After
reuniting with his family, Sasuke again goes on a journey. However, there is
bento in his hand made by his family therefore even if they’re apart, their
family’s connection is felt even more.
- How it
was to play Sasuke as father and husband?
"Boruto” Sasuke Uchiha appears to be different from what we’ve seen
before. So I often wondered how I should play him. Of course, in «Naruto» he
and Naruto sorted all things out, his character somewhat “softened,”
but if you change a lot the nature of the character, in the end you will ask:
“Who is it?” (laughs). Therefore, to prevent this from happening, I
had to think carefully how to express this softness in Sasuke’s style, how
would he show it? I believe that it is unlikely that Sasuke would say a lot of
gentle words to his daughter … at first glance, Sasuke could look
indifferent, given his violent past, but I’ve felt that he certainly thinks
about Sarada. And I thought it would be very difficult to balance.
- There was
a scene where in his words to his wife Sakura you could feel a
There is a
reason why Sasuke was absent from the village, that is why I think that during
their meeting you can feel how much their relationship changed, especially from
Sasuke’s side. Although the atmosphere is similar to the one that was before…
how to say it more precisely, there is a mutual understanding between them. At
least, I felt it.
- What’s about Naruto?
opinion, one of the most notable changes was his attitude towards Naruto’s
words. After they sorted all things out, instead of cutting Naruto off with
words «it’s wrong!» Sasuke rather thinks: “Well, most likely this idea
also can be right”. If you compare with the former Sasuke, you can get the
impression that in his mind he’s indulgent to Naruto. I think, instead of
“a little softened” (about a small change in Sasuke) it would be more
correct to say: “Ah, he seems to have become a little kinder.” I think if Sasuke was too kind to Sakura and
Sarada, Sarada wouldn’t have had all these worries. The image of Sasuke should have
turned out to make Sarada think: “Does this man understand what kind of
relationship should be between the father and the child?” And this is also
- Sugiyama-san, what is your impression of
Sasuke’s daughter, Sarada?
I think with the way she thinks and her
insight she’s just like Sasuke. And love. In the Uchiha clan, “they are penetrated
with love, that’s why they try to avoid this feeling” and Sarada also
inherited it with the blood of Uchiha (laughs). In my opinion, the child is
very cute. From her mother Sakura, she gets both love and trust, but you can
see how much she wants to know the truth, she want everything to be clarified. Here,
the blood of Uchiha has proven itself especially strong.
- Is there any scene and phrase in the story
of “Sarada Uchiha” which really impressed you?
There are a
few, but the most exciting of them, when Sarada asked: “Do you think your
feelings are well and truly connected to Mom?”, and when Sasuke replied:
“Because we have you, Sarada,” what surprised her. Even if he doesn’t
say a lot “Sarada, Sarada”, his concern for her is evident. Sasuke’s
position can be understood, because if he were in Konoha, it could bring danger
to Sarada and Sakura, so he wanted to eliminate all those who sought revenge on
him in the village or outside of Konoha. In the village, he has people dear to
him, to whom he can’t return, and he strongly feels that he must protect them
from the outside.
