Cry-baby (PHP)


How can somebody be a cry-baby and be so happy? What are the thoughts of Tsukino Usagi as she prepares for what may be the last day of her life? A short story about the battle between hope and despair.

Author's Comments:

There aren't many stories which have Usagi as their main character, and there are hardly any which centre on the manga Usagi in Stars - the Usagi who suffers the loss of her friends one after the other, who is left to fight with four people she's only just met.

I also really like that the sentences are short and rather simple. There's no Usagi waxing poetic or getting deeply philosophical. It's very much like how I'd expect Usagi to think.

Other likeable lines were "calm as glass (damn you and your metaphors. They fill me with envy. :P)" and "If I grew too... (more)
