The scratchy fabric of his medical gown threatened to swallow up his figure as the boy gazed off into the distance, eyes focused on something only he could see. His eyes were black pits, dead, the life sucked out of them into the ether. This was the state to which the pariah had been reduced to, this pathetic shell of a human being.

The captain's gloves curled into shaking fists as she looked down at the boy. She forcibly unclenched her hands and raised them to the height of his neck. He didn't react in the slightest, eyes still searching the invisible distance. She moved her hands to his shoulders. Nothing.

It was only when her hands curled around his throat that she was forced to look away, the salt stinging at the corners of her eyes. He reacted then, vacantly lifting up his arms to grab hold of her own. But it was in a lifeless way, as if he were resting his hands on something instead of clinging to what was rapidly sucking his life away.

And still her fingers crushed the life out of his body, until his arms fell to his sides and whatever dim light of curiosity had been behind his dead eyes had vanished.

Then she could no longer hold back the tears.

And through her teared vision, Misato Katsuragi saw an impossible apparition: Rei Ayanami, with her school uniform, looking at her with her usual impassible expression behind which Misato could, inexplicably, perceive the icing glare of hurt, judgment and rage.
Then Misato raised her eyes, and saw above the impossible apparition of Rei the huge and menacing silhouette of Unit 01 cracking its knuckles and whose face definitively, which somehow managed to break from her cage in the main engines and tear every floor to where Misato currently was.
And has she diverted her look from the definitively very angry purple and -red?- behemoth, Misato noticed the lifeless husk of Shinji Ikari, still hanging from her grip on his neck, the proud and fierce Captain of the AAA Wunder fleet's face suddenly lost a good two of three dozen shade of colors, while the apparition of Rei Ayanami was imitating a cutting throat movement with her hand.
"W... wait, I can expla-"
Misato Katsuragi's last words were punctuated by her last sight of a bright light as EVA-01 threw an eyebeam at her, vaporizing her on the spot alongside the floor, half of the quarantine zone, the kitchen and mess that was in the floor below, a good quarter of the residential area another floor below, missing Mari Makinami Illustrious that was in her cabin restroom by roughly four centimeters ("What the Bloody Hell!" will be her later comment of the events as she realizes that her left twintail sadly didn't shared her chance) and the shared toilets yet another floor below.

Last sighting of Unit 01 was it leaving the crashed Wunder and heading toward the ruins of Tokyo-3, some crew members swearing that they could hear the nightmarish beast muttering something about "breaking the face and stupid pose out of that stupid neckbeard for leaving our family in such a sorry state", others swearing that they rather heard another, younger voice emanating from the Demon and saying "I'm gonna poka poka my foot down where the manhood of that fucking bishonen pianist for putting Ikari-kun through this poorly-thought excuse of plan of his!"


@PW: even with the position of her thumb, the rest of the fingers encircling his neck like that is a movement more fitting if she was putting a heavy metallic shackle, not an almost weightless choker.

Neat avie, pwhodges but I have to agree with Bags and it is, to me at least, a rather combination of bleak/disturbing/heartbreaking/gut wrenching. If Shin-can decides to initiate Final/5th Impact, she can proceed to strangle him/shoot him.

Because I was suddenly made self-conscious of my old avatar, I've decided to throw up my main from Final Fantasy X|V, Rhoe Amariyo.

I apologise if I made it seem like the amount of Bowie avatars was a bad thing and needed to be changed. I just found it curious that so many here, of all places, should have him for an avatar; and stranger still that they should, seemingly without explanation, gather in the same topic(s) is all.

It wasn't meant to be critical - I'm rather fond of Bowie myself.

Perish the thought. I kinda felt like I should be changing it anyway. I'm just using that as an excuse XD

The time has come in this avatar series for the troll who represents my place on the Zodiac to make her appearance. Welcome to my avatar space, Terezi! At least for a month. Also in celebration, my sig has been edited to resemble her typing style. -o-;

Don't worry, someone dumped enough Bowie in the Moonwalk to last us for a while.

Yeah, what pwhodges said.

I've been rewatching RGU with my boyfriend and we reached the cowbell episode yesterday. I was laughing so much I figured I might as use Nanami as my next avatar.

(Original)

This also symbolizes my deep personal anxiety that I'm just a cow of a woman whom everyone is laughing at behind her back. I guess.

Custom user text reads "Urusai wa ne, mou", which would normally just be a girly way to say "Shut up already", but when Nanami says it she enunciates the "mou" like she's a cow. (Cattle say "mou" in Japanese.)

Okay, the sheer lunacy of the original image has made me want to look up the source anime.

Utena is a little scarce on mecha and daikaijuu, though.

Utena's already on my radar; I'm just busy plugging through other things. Nice avi, though.
