[Oh hey, it's one of those kids with the weird hairstyles! Shouldn't he be in school about now? Nonetheless, the video feed opens to a few moments of Shark glaring silently at the communicator camera, sitting barefoot and crosslegged on his bed, elbows on his knees. He's propped the communicator up on a desk or something similar, facing him. You may notice he's looking rather red-eyed and his hair is dripping water onto his jacket.

Clearly, whatever he's about to say is a heavy topic for serious discussion.]


...I need to ask if any of you found out about your powers in a really dumb way.

[Guess who fell asleep in the bath this morning and woke up two hours later, freezing and underwater and suspiciously not drowned?

Yes that would be Shark.]

[It's Minako, once again up on a rooftop somewhere, but there's something that's not quite right about her, in a way that's hard to put a finger on. The simple white kimono she's wearing is out of the ordinary enough, but even aside from that, something seems off.

Particularly keen observers might realize that her hairpins are on the right side of her head, instead of on the left side where she normally wears them, or maybe that there's something wrong with her eyes, though it's hard to tell what over the communicators' video feed.]


Hey, you know...? [Her voice is fragile, distant.]

There are many, many, so very many things that I still want to do... I want to graduate from high school. I want to see the cherry blossoms bloom, and the autumn leaves fall. I want to go to the beach again with everyone.

I want to go to a festival and eat dango and takoyaki. I want to fall asleep listening to the rain. I want to get up early and see the sunrise. I want to stay up late and go stargazing.

I want to kiss the guy I like. I want to sing karaoke with my friends.

I want to live to be twenty.

All of these things... they're not that much to ask, are they? Other people out there - you'll get to do things like that all the time, and you don't even understand how precious it is just to have the chance. [Her voice has taken on a plaintive, petulant edge, almost a whine:] Even though it could all disappear tomorrow, you still just take it all for granted, like it doesn't even matter.

It isn't fair.

[Suddenly her expression twists and her voice rises, loud and angry and urgent.]

It isn't fair! I've been everything anyone needed me to be! I did everything! I saved everyone!

So why...

Why is it that I'm the only one who can't be saved?!

[Kneeling there, she flails her arms uselessly at her sides, kimono sleeves flapping, like a child having a tantrum.]

I'm going to die, do you understand? I'm tired all the time! I'm scared all the time, and nobody ever even notices! As long as I keep smiling, then it's fine, right?! You don't have to care!

I don't want to die! I want to live!

[Her voice hitches and breaks in a hiccuping little sob.] But I won't. So that everyone else can keep on living - just so that everyone else can go on taking their lives for granted, and finding stupid reasons not to be happy, until it's too late--

[She squeezes her eyes shut, voice rising again, loud and shrill.]

Why does it have to be this way? Somebody tell me!

I don't want to die. [She's sobbing openly now, making no effort to hold back the tears at all.] Please, somebody - somebody--

Please, someone save me!

[ooc: Meet Shadow Minako. The Shadow Märchen plot has officially begun!]

[She's looking a little more tired than usual. Who ever thought Jane would start to take things that happen in this world personally? She needs to talk, but someone is missing.]

Evan McCulloch is missing. I think the Porter got him. Probably sick of his stupid grin.

Idiot.

[It's sadder than she thought it would be to have him up and disappear on her.]

If by some chance he's just screwing with me, let it be known that when I see his gap toothed face I will punch it.

[A pause as her cat tries to interrupt. She pushes him away not feeling up to cuddles tonight]

Whatever. I don't care.
