THIS MOMENT, OH MY GOD. She just met Usagi yesterday, they spent maybe a couple of hours together in the Crown Arcade, then met briefly again this afternoon, but Ami was comfortable around her, Ami was happy around her, she wanted to spend more time with Usagi.
She took that pen home and she had it in her pocket and brought it to school the next day and was using it, she had it with her during the Crystal Seminar. Even when she was brainwashed, even when her memories haven’t come back to her yet, even when she’s only known Usagi for a day in this lifetime, her feelings for Usagi cannot be repressed.
She still looks up when the pen is snatched away, no matter how deep into the brainwashing she is. She still hears Usagi’s voice, no matter how much they’ve tried to suck away her energy and program her to be a mindless drone for them. She still gets up and instinctively goes after the pen when she’s scolded and its thrown aside.
THINK HOW STRONG HER FEELINGS FOR USAGI MUST BE, TO NOT JUST BREAK THROUGH ALL THOSE BARRIERS, BUT JUST SMASHES RIGHT THROUGH THEM.
This isn’t a brief flicker of, oh, that seems familiar. No, Ami gets up and goes for the pen, no scolding or attempts to force her back into the seat can stop her, because she knows that pen, she knows that voice she hears in her memories, she knows that girl and she loves that girl so much that it cannot be pushed aside or broken like this.
I COULD CRY FROM HOW MUCH AMI LOVES USAGI ALREADY, HOW BRAINWASHING CAN’T STOP THAT LOVE, HOW REINCARNATION AND MEMORY LOSS CAN’T STOP THAT LOVE.
NOTHING CAN STOP AMI FROM LOVING USAGI.
