Today is mother's day. I admit that I never knew a holiday like this one existed until yesterday.

[Guess who works overnight to sleep for most of the day if she wasn't out and about doing something else with her friends or Ryuuka? Yesterday's swear-in reminded her of it. There was a lot on her mind concerning this particular holiday. What better way to distract herself with than talking about it in text form?]

It's a good idea though. Dedicating a day to our mothers. They really do so much for us. Like, protecting us, raising us, and guiding us on the correct path, no matter what the cost. They're responsible for our personal growth and help prepare the basic aspects of our personality before we make any important decisions about it on our own. Since they're usually the parent we're suppose to spend the most time with, they're usually the most influential person in our lives.

I don't know of the type of relationship many of you may have with your family back home. Your mother's, especially, but I'm interested to hear about it. I want to know just how similar my point of time is to your own; how similar our worlds are. Did this holiday existed back in your world? What kind of gifts did you give her?

And for those who do not have a mother, who raised you? If they were here today, what would you give them as a present if they were here with you now?

In my case, I would give them the flower bouquet I made at yesterday's swear-in. Maybe take them out to a spa, so they can have a relaxing day to themselves. I think they both would like that. Considering they're both too sickly to do anything else.

P.S: let's keep that info our secret if my grandmother ever finds her way over here, okay?


[Because she'd eat her head off. Please don't let her dear grandmother eat her head off. She rather likes it on her head.]

[Not all mothers are as kind as the ones Nike describes. Mika can't recognize his own in any of the things she says. And the thought of being influenced by her? It causes a cold hiver to run down his spine.]

Where you and your mother close?

Me neither.

[He doesn't know if he should tell her more. Nike doesn't remember Yuu, so no matter what Yuu must've told her is probably lost with it. Why burden her with any of that again?]

[Drily, he continues.]


After the orphanage, Krul is probably the closest I have to a parent.

Mother's Day, huh?

Mine wasn't -- she wasn't exactly the best example. We had this sort of thing back home. I haven't done anything for it in years though. I think I made cards or pictures for her for it, when I was really little.


[But, like he said, that was years ago now. What with....everything with his parents just before the virus outbreak back home and all.]

[personal profile] dejerate 2017-05-15 12:23 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. I'm not sure if we really bother with holidays like this one back home anymore. But that's -- they didn't just die. They tried to kill me. He came at me with a knife and she tried to burn me alive. Because they called me demon spawn and thought killing me would save the world. That's why I ended up at the Hyakuya orphanage and met Mika.

[It's never easy. Telling someone. But he trusts Nike, and this is filtered now, so others shouldn't be able to read it. He's just glad it's via text, so his voice or expression doesn't betray him.]

my mom didn't really raise me

neither of my parents did

they put food in the fridge and left some money on the counter with a note saying how long they'd be away for work. usually it was like a week, maybe two. i didn't bother them when they were home. they taught me not to.

if i gave them stuff it'd just get thrown out so

no reason to bother w/ gifts

[personal profile] pale_blue_arrow 2017-05-15 02:03 am (UTC)(link)
they were always working. we lived in a rough town and they wanted to make enough to move away from it. i don't hate them or anything. you do what you gotta do to make a better future for you + the people you love. i get it.

i quit giving them stuff when i was 8 or 9. i was taking out the trash and found the planter i'd made my mom in it and that's when i figured it out. they did TRY to hide it, at least.

yeah. always wanted siblings, but it just never happened.

My mother died when I was very young, but she was an inspiration to me my entire life. It was a painting of hers that made me want to become an artist, but I had no idea it was hers until years later. I like to think that that passion connects us.

The work that inspired me so was a self portrait. That was the only material thing of hers that I had, but it was left at home when I was brought here.

You needn't worry! It's a very local holiday, largely based on merchandising---your grandmother would forgive you for not knowing.

But regarding your questions:

My mother's name was Sarah. She was an unstoppable force when she wanted to be, fiercer than anything that dared stand in her way...but we loved each other very much. She sheltered and encouraged me, she showed affection when my father was too preoccupied to do so. I miss her, but I try to shape the world around me as she would.

All these holidays start as marketing ploys, but we do our best to wrangle genuine emotion from them.

In my case, I'd bring her a new invention to make her life easier...a household appliance, usually. It didn't always work out, but she had fun with the effort.

And I'm glad. I know your grandmother would be proud too.

All sorts, I couldn't name them all. It's a big world, and there might well be a mother's day somewhere, but I'm speaking of where I live.

We had mother's day where I'm from. I would have placed flowers by the place my mother's ashes were scattered if I could. Maybe a picture of my life here or some pebbles from the places I've been to. Or sketches I've made. Something to let her know I'm able to have a life here.

There'd be no place to put them.

No, not really. We didn't have powers or porters where I'm from.

glowsferatu: (Some Girls Mothers Are Bigger)

[personal profile] glowsferatu 2017-05-17 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
i was adopted
it was a common practice on my planet
due to the way we were bred our biological parents usually lived thousands of years before we hatched
and so we would be selected by a lusus according to our caste
a mother grub herself abdicated her position in the brooding caverns to raise me
she was gorgeous and gentle with a natural maternal instinct
i was incredibly lucky to have her in my life

i dont rightly know what i would do for her today if she were to arrive
id like her to meet my daughter
though i guess its just as accurate to call ashiah her daughter
it might be nice to show her around this world
at least the parts of it where she could fit
