Mother's day has come and gone. It was my first mother's day here. I never got to see where my mother's ashes were scattered. And now I never will. It's made me think of other ways to remember her.

[She holds up a sketch she made of her mother, climbing a mountain.]

That's her. I drew her going up Eagle Mountain. It was a trip we were planning to make, before...

[Her voice trails off and she puts the sketch down.]

Well, before.

[She pauses and blinks a few times, keeping herself from crying.]

I have a power with a harpsichord. One of the things I can do is help people recall good memories. Or make the bad ones less painful. I can't use it on myself. It only works on others. So if anyone wants to remember the good things about the people you've lost, or to get beyond some bad memories, I can try to help you.

[It isn't entirely selfless. She's hoping someone out there can offer to help with her memories too.]

[ Oh that's...

Pretty upsetting actually...
]

Your picture of her is really good.

[ That's the most comforting thing he can think to say, and he realizes almost immediately it's kind of shitty comfort,
and looks away from the camera as he tries and fails to think up something better.

No. I mean... not good drawings?

[ He can draw stick figures if push comes to shove. ]

Yours looks as good as a photo though.

I think it's really... nice of you to offer that to people. To help them, I mean.

[ She smiles a little. ]

Your mother would love that picture, I'm sure.

Aw, damn. I'm sorry, Abigail.

[she'd been very understanding to him when he'd first shown up, confused and unhappy. he's trying to return it.]

Maybe someone has the power to absorb powers? Y'know, like duplicate it. Then they could use it on you!

It's beautiful, Abigail.

[ He smiles, weakly. Yusuke has always felt the sting of being motherless, but this was the first Mother's Day since he found out what really happened to her. ]

My entire life, I only knew my mother from her own self-portrait. I don't want to forget anything, but there is a chance I could help you, if that's what you really want.

You said that you can't use your powers on yourself. An odd thing to mention, unless you wanted to. I can't change that, but I can probably make it so that someone else can use them.

I like your drawing.

[ mothers aren't an easy topic for her, but seeing and hearing how this woman remembers hers with fondness eases the tension that's settled into her shoulders. she has an idea of what mother's day is, but it's a concept she's purposefully outrun. why would she want to run into its arms when her mother has done nothing to deserve such fondness? ]

[ but she remembers how alie had taken her painful memories, and she hadn't remembered her mother at all. ]

[ her expression's soft. ]


I think sometimes you need those painful memories to keep yourself grounded. Doesn't mean they don't hurt like a bitch sometimes, but it doesn't make you any less strong to feel it, you know?

You still get out of bed to draw her, don't you? [ she arches her brow, challengingly. ] That seems strong to me.

I didn't know there was a Mother's Day holiday here. [And, truthfully, she's sort of glad about it. Remembering Lyra is painful enough; she needn't an entire day dedicated to mothers everywhere to remind her of what she's lost.] Kind of you to extend your powers to others.

[She pauses, lips pursing as she debates whether to ask:] What was your mother like?
kestreldawn: ([pensive] blurs and lights)

[personal profile] kestreldawn 2017-05-20 01:10 am (UTC)(link)
She .. sounds almost exactly like my mother. [There's a softness on Jyn's face, one of empathy - purposefully devoid of anything like "pity." She nods a bit.] I'm .. sorry you lost her.
