I really love all your Fai metas and character analyses.

helhathnofury:

Oh wow thank you. Also hi hello, you’re my favorite writer for all things Kurogane.

I just have a lot of feelings about this series and these characters, but Fay will always have a special place in my heart. Like, I love all of the character arcs and the development of these characters but his is the one I most relate to.

For someone who didn’t value his own life to develop self-worth and learn to have faith in others and actually just be happy is really inspiring.

Trust is a difficult thing for Fay. Later, we learn Fay is someone who endured god only knows how many years (decades) of abuse at the hands of people who should have loved him and his brother unconditionally. That by itself is an incredibly traumatic experience, even before everything else that happens. On top of that, the last person to be really important to him turned out to have had an ulterior motive for taking him in and raising him. He’s been betrayed by everyone close to him except his dead twin, whom he believes HE betrayed and killed.

People also have the tendency to die around him and it has always been attributed to his being literally misfortune. At this point, Fay has no trouble believing that he really does bring nothing but suffering to others. He cannot trust that Sakura will come back alive because, as Kurogane pointed out earlier, Fay got involved with her. He was involved with Syaoran too and look what happened there.

So it’s not all that surprising that Fay has no faith in Sakura being able to keep that promise. Not because he thinks she is weak, but because he believes his misfortune and his fate is going to override everything.

Going back a bit, it should also come as no surprise that Fay has very little trust in Kurogane. The extent of that trust is Kurogane’s protective capacity for the children. But I don’t think he really believed Kurogane when he said Fay’s past did not matter to him. Kurogane does not know Fay’s past. It’s easy to say something does not matter when you do not know the extent of it. Given Fay’s experiences, he may have felt that his honesty would have been met with more pain and betrayal. Maybe even his death. And although Fay certainly feels that he deserves to die, I get the impression that he would rather die while they still think well of him.

SPOILERS

The words Fay refers to…

…that there’s more to living than just pain and suffering and cursed twins.

I actually read this two ways.

1) That Fay, obviously, believes that his involvement with others causes them misfortune. Everyone dies around him, starting with his parents, uncle, and twin and ending with however many people in Celes did not get the chance to flee before Ashura-ou got a hold of them. Syaoran lost his soul and it looks like Fay blames himself for not being able to magically re-seal it (even though it was impossible). It’s no wonder he reacts as he does to the news Sakura is gone.  That Sakura went off alone on a dangerous journey as part of the deal to save him makes it worse.

2) That Fay cannot trust the promises others make to him. If even someone like Ashura-ou, who up until the reveal had appeared to be a great foster dad, can lie and betray his trust, then no one else can be counted on not to hurt him.

novel about a morally grey pirate captain who is cursed to die within 5 years for stealing some forbidden treasure, and only giving her heart to someone and expecting nothing back can break the curse

but rather than go on some journey to find some true love or whatever, she decides to use her last years to travel the seas with her crew and collect treasure and drink and be merry

and on the day of reckoning, she is falling more and more ill, and her crew gather all around her to say goodbye to their captain when suddenly the curse is broken. because she gave her whole heart to her ship and her crew, and expected nothing back.

Taking a break from crying over the main characters for a moment…

Acid Tokyo is basically AU X, in which, given we have a bunch of people still alive and the world itself is a desert wasteland full of mutant creatures, humanity was chosen over nature.

Acid Tokyo is also the past of Sakura’s &Tsubasa-hime’s Clow Kingdom. There’s a thriving populace. The environment is not as harsh. Slowly, the people are fixing what damage humanity had done to nature.

I just really think it’s wonderful that there’s at least one AU of X where both humanity and nature are being saved.

I'm really not very far into Shadow Magic yet but I remembered this line from Havemercy: '"Find somewhere private and leave us in peace," Alcibiades muttered... I promised myself that one day I'd repay Alcibiades for the sentiment.' Did Royston somehow set him up to be in the same carriage as Caius just to annoy him a little bit? :')

jonesandbennett:

What kind of grown man holds a grudge like that, that would be PETTY. (Next time on Havemercy, Hal discovers Royston’s secret library stocked solely with handwritten books of grievances, alphabetized by perpetrator.)
