Apr. 4th, 2005 @ 09:03 pm Two new people in a row! OMG now it's Riku!
Alas!
Brighid
doomweasel:
A lean teenaged boy with silver hair (see teh piccys here and here) slowly enters the room, an utterly confused - yet curious - expression on his face. He suddenly sees Kenshin still glaring daggers at Soujiro and stops. "Ooookaaay," he says slowly. "If I have to choose between this and the heartless-teeming darkness, I'm gonna go with the heartless-teeming darkness." He turns to leave, then stops as if someone has called his name. After a few seconds of standing in silence, he bursts out, "But Your Majesty, we're wasting time here! We need to get out and find Sora!" He listens for a few more moments, then snorts derisively, "I don't see how a bunch of freaks like these guys can help me... ...Your Majesty? Your Majesty!" He looks around the room wildly, searching for his invisible companion. "Damn it!" he growls, casting the people in the room an acid glare. Folding his arms across his chest, he's the spitting image of a sullen, rebellious teen. "My name is Riku," he mutters. "Apparently King Mickey is an ass and thinks this stupid little meeting is more important than finding my friends."

Riku

(Never Forget)
That's the great thing about friendship, though, isn't it? A true friend will forgive you even when you can't forgive yourself.

*pauses, thinks* I suppose that's where the angst comes from, huh? The inability to forgive yourself when your friends already have, I mean.

Probably. It's damned annoying.

*catches himself. Thoughtfully:*

I... guess that's not fair.

It seems like you're looking at part of yourself-- the part that did whatever you did-- and hating it. And so you think your friends are just overlooking that part-- that they're not really seeing all of you.

Because you think they couldn't still want to be your friend if they ever saw that.

*not looking at Riku, or anyone else*

Right?

*also not meeting anyon'es eyes.* That's exactly right. They just don't see that part of you. Or worse- they see it but don't recognize it for what it really is, even when I try to tell them. *He's obviously not aware of the Freudian slip, and continues in the anonymous third person without noticing that he's used the pronoun.* So they may not even understand that there's anything to forgive.

Or maybe they do recognize it. And want you around anyway.

Hard to tell what they see if you can't read minds, huh?

*gestures empathetically* Yeah, exactly. You can't tell what your friends think, so you wonder, "How can they forgive me for what I've done? What do they see in me that makes me worthy of their love?"

...How can they see a light when all I see is darkness?

Hisoka, thoughtfully

(Never Forget)
You don't see your own light. You're too used to it-- you don't realize that to them, it might seem like the brightest thing they've ever seen. But you don't see it, because it's what you're using to look with.

If you were just the darkness, I think you wouldn't see the dark. It'd be all you are. It'd be too deep to get out of enough to see. *glances at Muraki* I bet you'd think there was nothing wrong with it.

Soujirou, looking particularly cheerful

(Never Forget)
I don't understand at all. *smiles* Himura-san, shouldn't you be thinking about becoming a manslayer again? That's what Shishio-san wants when he fights you.

*with raised voice, narrowing his eyes*

This one will never slay men again. You can tell Shishio so.

*looks at Soujirou curiously* Speaking of friends, who's this Shishio guy?

*smirks* He your boyfriend or something?

Shishio Makoto. Like this one, a former assassin of the Revolution. This one does not know fully what his plans are, but he will be stopped.

*looks at Soujirou suspiciously. Opens his mouth to say something, then stops and rests his chin on his hands again*

Akito, pulling his attention back to the conversation

(Never Forget)
*to Kenshin, with an air of disbelief*

You're an assassin?

*laughs sharply*

Of course you are. How perfect.
