" Your jump form is really beautiful, like a bird, i thought (...) I have my own style of being a shadow. But, even so, sometimes i still think about how a shadow is always to far from the sky, but if i can fly like you, that must feel very nice (...)"
"You're not wrong about that, i guess. Nope, you're completly right. But you see, light can't exist without shadow, yeah? In others words, if you say i'm like a bird... Then to me, you're the sky. You are the sky i'm leaping towards. Birds can't fly if there's no sky above them. So, the fact i'm able to fly like a bird... It's 'cuz you're here"
~ とぶ ため の 空 by トヲル on Pixiv
I hate the word “fate.” Birth, encounters, partings, success and failures, fortune and misfortunes in life. If our lives are already set in stone by fate, then why are we even born? There are those born to wealthy families, those born to beautiful mothers, and those born into the middle of war or poverty. If that’s all caused by fate, then God is incredibly unfair and cruel. Because, ever since that day, none of us had a future and the only certain thing was that we wouldn’t amount to anything. - Takakura Shouma
