ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND SATSURYU AU
Satsuki determines she wants to get her entire family scrubbed out of her memory including Ryuko because she’s grossed out by herself, but halfway through the procedure she realizes she doesn’t want to lose Ryuko in any capacity and tries to find a way to hide her in her quickly fading memories.
But Ryuko doesn’t try to stop her, because of all people she knows why it is that Satsuki would want to forget everything, so she just lets her be. Sometimes she sits next to her on the Tokyo metro, or she’ll hold a door open for her in a Ginza department store. She watches Satsuki from a distance, seeing her new life and her new friends, and she sees that she’s happy - and she knows she made the right choice.
Sometimes I’ll be driving around, plotting something as I go, and I’m sure people see me and think, “Oh… somebody died” or “Whoa. Break-up. Definitely got dumped” when all I’m really thinking about is RYUKO PLACING SATSUKI’S LIFELESS BODY INTO A VIKING LONGSHIP AND THEN PUSHING IT OUT INTO THE MISTY, FREEZING WATERS OF THE ARCTIC NORTH BEFORE SETTING IT ABLAZE WITH A FLAMING ARROW.
What if I placed everyone in order from least angst to most angst?
What about the literary equivalent of a double-dip recession?
Build up the happiness, then angst, then a bit more happiness, then even more angst, then everything ends in a cheerful explosion of smut and/or fluff?
If something is ‘old as fuck’ then it’s about 1.2 billion years old because that’s when life evolved sexual reproduction.
#wow #fuck is old
In contrast, “old as balls” is merely 65 million years old, if we consider the characteristics of the Boreoeutherian land mammals.
