[ It's going to be the middle of the night when this video pops up on the network here. There's a redhead in bed, looking exhausted and like she might have been crying like she probably needs some serious sleep as she rubs a hand over her face, fingers brushing through her long red hair in some attempt to get it out of her face. The room's a little dark but it's not impossible to see her thanks to a night light being on nearby. ]

Hi...

[ So not awkward. ]

I know people leave-- get ported out, whatever you want to call, all the time.

[ There's a pause as she rests her chin in her palm and glances off to the side, thinking. ]

It kinda sucks, right? But I mean... if they go back to where they're from, then it's a good thing, right?

[ She looks back to the camera, lips pursed, trying to smile a little. ]

Are you ever happy or I guess... glad when someone goes back and isn't here anymore? I don't really mean someone you hate or whatever but... someone you're close to. It's good they go back, right?

[ She's sounding as though she needs reassurance on that and smiles a little again before she decides to shut this off. ]

[ah, now that's an expression that Jonathan knows quite well - and a familiar train of thought, too. his voice and expression are gentle with understanding.]

I'm always happy when the people I care about can be happy, even if it means parting ways from me. But I don't think that makes the loss sting any less.

[was it selfish to want friends and family to stay by your side, especially in a world that wasn't your own? certainly. but it was a selfishness that he could never label shameful; it was simply humanity.]

Even if we don't carry our memories of this world with us back home, I still believe that our time here changes us. The people who've been ported out still keep us close in their hearts.

[he smiles softly]

And there's always a chance for their return.

It's not always a good thing. But other times, I do see it the way you're thinking of it, yes. My best friend has been here three separate times. He's got things he has to do back home, so... it's bittersweet on my end, but I'm happy for him.

Time runs here independently from home. And whenever you return, your life will resume from the moment you left it. So you should know that where and when Charles has gone, it's most likely he's sitting a class right now with you in it.

He looks at the comm for a while.

Considers answering.

Considers asking.

Feels the kyberlight behind his eyes.

Sets the comm aside. Leaves his chair. Goes up to Jyn's room. Slips into her bed, slides his arms around her, gathers her tightly, and closes his eyes into her hair.

Even if it doesn't block out the light… they always face it together.]

If they're going back to safety and their loved ones, then, yes, I definitely am. You're thinking about if you get ported back home, or..? [Jean doesn't have to answer, of course, but, if she wants to get more thoughts out, Wanda will listen.]

Some worlds are kinder than others.

People don't wish to be alone and away from those who understand them the best. This place isn't always easy, so sometimes we wish to keep them with us. [ kaneki shakes his head ] It's a bit selfish, however.

I think it depends on what where they're from is like. I wouldn't want to go back to the place I'm from. I don't want anyone I know going back there either, especially if they're happier here.

[ She pauses. ]

I could be happy if I knew they went somewhere good. I just don't know if there are good places.

[ Another pause. ]

I'm sorry if that sounded bad. I'm sorry if you've lost someone.

[middle of the night = no hair gel]

I think it's a good thing. Sure, it's sad when a friend leaves but, they're returning to where they were supposed to be. So even if they're not here, I still feel happy for them about that.

Plus, them leaving doesn't change the friendship we have or the fun times together while they were here.

[ Oof. Poor girl. The first cut's the deepest, isn't it? Jaime's expression is distinctly sympathetic. ]

I think everyone who's been here for more than a few months knows how you feel. I've been here long enough that pretty much everyone I knew when I got here is gone now. But even then - yeah, I'm glad, sometimes. Life here is rough, and if they've got something better waiting for them back home, that's where they should be.

Still sucks for anyone who's left behind, though.

( She frowns, empathizing with the loss this girl is clearly feeling. )

It's okay to miss people when they leave. Even if they're still alive back home. And I don't think they'd judge you for feeling that way.

( Kara thinks it over for all of two seconds before she asks: )

Where are you? If it'd help, I wouldn't mind hanging out.
