Mare Serenitatis - Sea of Serenity

"A Western TV show.  I saw it subbed online and… It’s nothing."  The mouth of heaves tickles his finger.  Wanting at least a view of the place closed to him, he spreads his fingers to peer through.  Heaven keeps sunshine, rainbows, and the seetest choir behind its gates.  Shinji can touch and love it all he wants:  the key is not in his name.  "Keep fighting," a weakening part of his heart begs.

No.  Let me rest.  For now, let me rest.  The living parts of him power down.  He lays down, tugging Nagisa down with him.  Rest with him.

He curls protectively around his lover, their bodies pressed close, their heat shared. Softly he hums a lullabye as he threads pale fingers through the other boy’s hair. 

At least all parts are connected now. Physically, at the least.

I would prefer an apple instead, myself.

I think the proper procedure now would be having someone shoot an arrow at my head.

I vote Asuka to do the job.

I worry for both her aim and your intent.

what is your opinion of Rei Ayanami? and Gendo Ikari?
Anonymous

Rei Ayanami. An intriguing person, who is so alike and yet so different from me. Ambivalence is perhaps the best way to put it. There are feelings of both kinship and antagonism between us. For the most part, I like her various selves… the same can usually not be said in reverse.

Gendo Ikari. A powerful man who will drive the world to the brink of destruction due to his inability to move on and let go. He is not my favorite person, to say the least, but I am the last one who has the right to chide him for being a neglectful parent.

"I would love to see that, I bet it’s really beautiful!" Nunna buzzed with excitement. It was a rare occasion, indeed, in which she could lose herself freely in a nice conversation. And rarer still for her to hear of other cultures and things beyond Britannian borders. Suzaku had told her a few things when they were younger, but now it seemed that he didn’t care to remember the past very much. It had, admittedly, disappointed her a bit, but she didn’t wish to make her friend remember things that he preferred to forget. Still, a chance like this seemed nothing less than heaven-sent.

"You must come from very far away. The Holy Britannian Empire may not have always been this big, but it has been around for a long time."

'That is,' she mused to herself, 'assuming that what I've been reading is the truth…' she still wasn’t quite sure what to make of her “sheltered” upbringing just yet.

"I wish I could tell you what it’s like, but to be honest, I’ve never been outside of Pendragon- that’s the capital city, and where the Royal Family lives. And besides that,’ Nunna bowed her head apologetically, "I’m afraid I’ve been blind for most of my life. I could tell you what the palace is like, or the sounds that I’ve heard in the gardens, but that’s about it…"

The young princess felt it was unfair of her not to be able to offer a proper response. She had only just regained her sight; she herself was still adjusting to the world around her, and she was sure that her description would be completely inaccurate if she were to try and recall what the world was like in her childhood years.

"I have come quite far from my origin," he admitted.

More perhaps than words could express. Even he could no longer remember the planet once known as the ancestral homeworld of the First Ancestral Race.

"And have wandered for long enough that quite often I have no idea exactly where I am." He gave a slight shrug of his shoulder and a smile that was far more than slight.  "A feeling that can be both discombobulating and freeing."

As the girl continued to speak, he listened intently, silver head tilted slightly as he absorbed her words. 

"Blindness recovered," he mused. "Then you possess both the insight of those who can not lean upon the assumptions of their sight and the joy of those who can. Tell me…."   "Aside from seeing the sakura bloom in spring, what is it that you would most like to see?"

He’s not drinking it, however.

Fifth comparing yourself to bible characters is going to make your ego expand! Don't end up some kind of uber baka! - Asuka

In this you are preaching to the choir, Soryu. I’m not the one who brings up the allusions.

Shinji sees your look, Nagisa.  Come on, he’s not about to attack some pushover teddy bears just because they’re a little annoying.  “You guys aren’t professionals.  I need doctors, with an s.  Do you have a PhD?  No, you don’t.”  He knows that Nagisa is only trying to help him, but they’re getting on his nerves.  Nobody is going to be welcome in his head for a while:not a bear, or a shrink, o his lover.  “Hey, um, I think I hear an old lady crying five houses down.  Maybe you’ll have better luck with her.”

If a Carebear is anything, its stubborn when it comes to the wellbeing of friends. However they also know that unwanted stares and cares would be more damaging than anything else.

He puts one gloved hand upon the little bear’s shoulder.

"It’s all right, Tenderheart. If he changes his mind, I’ll let you know, yes?"

He stands and looks over at his recalcitrant lover.

"Is that what you want? Doctors?" 

If it is, he can turn a thousand worlds upside down looking for the best of them.

/throws up his Field| Apostle, Apostle! Do you write sonnets whilst sheathing your pen in his inkwell? Do you spill it everywhere before the final line? Tsk. You toil in a deplorable work environment although the desk that you labor upon is exquisite. Would you mind so terribly if I penned a poem? I shall show to you the consummate methodology.

One wonders at the depths of the death wish that you seem to possess.

Far be it for me to keep you from your poetry.
