IT LOOKS LIKE THE PROTAGONISTS ARE EUREKA’S/RENTON’S AND HOLLAND’S/TALHO’S KIDS TOO
I’M GOING TO DIE.
Ugh. Really? Really? Any official continuation that is the exact same thing as ever fanbrat’s ~continuation~ fanfic gets instant huge-ass skepticism from me. Just ugh. Eureka seveN doesn’t need a fucking continuation. Why do people demand continuations from series that end just fucking FINE? SERIOUSLY? THEIR KIDS? That’s so trite and lame and just ughhh. I’m elated that the movie was a re-telling and not a goddamn continuation. (Like the “Escaflowne” movie and “RAYEARTH” OVA, I love retellings because they’re not bound by the series canon and, oh hey wow, creativity can happen!)
Eureka seveN doesn’t need trite continuations to cheapen its universe. It was perfectly complete as it already is. I don’t understand why fans feel that finished stories need to be fucked with canonically.
Prince Jake and I were alone. We looked at one another. <I am still yours to command.> I offered him my hand to shake as humans do. Prince Jake gripped it. His eyes were sad. “I can’t hold you to your oath. The others are right. It’s over. Go on. Do what you have to do. And if you can, go home.” Prince Jake squeezed my hand tightly, forgetting that andalite hands are not as strong as human hands. I knew it was an expression of affection. I tried to return the pressure. Prince Jake straightened his shoulders and lifted his chin. “Good-bye,” he said. “And thank you. For everything.” He walked slowly from the barn. His silhouette disappeared into the bright glare of the morning sun. I stood alone. Remembering.
Favorite Ax and Jake moment, from #38. I know the entire scene was staged, but I think that speaks volumes about the team. Nobody wants to be a caricature of themself. And yet everyone does just that here, and I feel like this scene between Jake and Ax was genuine. I think Jake and Ax meant everything that they said. And I have never forgotten the detail of how Ax has learned so, so, so many subtleties of human culture, enough to recognize a subtle yet important expression of affection between men and how he felt the affection for Jake as well, and wasn’t quite able to return the gesture.
