    Summary

    The sky behind Kishibe’s head is an ugly bruise, the sunset mottled in nasty shades of puce and yellow as day deepens into dusk. It would take less than a second to paint the backdrop cherry red instead, her office window coated in the soft runoff of his flesh.

    Makima lifts her teacup instead and takes a sip.

    To anyone else, such thoughts would be intrusive. For her, they are simply a calculation—is it worth the satisfaction? Right now it isn’t, and so Kishibe gets to fumble with his lighter one more time. His gaze lifts to meet hers as the spark catches; she thinks that if they were different people, this sort of thing would be poetic, but they aren’t. It isn’t.

    In this world, she is no one’s daughter. If he chooses to take responsibility for her actions, that’s his own mistake.

    There is nothing hanging in the air between them but terse acceptance.

    Summary

    It’s like Reigen’s been waiting for the question. He stops dead on the pavement, grips Mob by the shoulders, and stares down into his eyes with an expression as haunted as though every ghost the pair of them has ever exorcised has taken up residence behind it. “Mob,” he says. “Mob,” he says again. “Tell me, Mob. Look at me and tell me. Tell me truthfully. Do I look cursed to you?”

    Mob looks at him, and tells him truthfully. “No.”

    “Well, you didn’t look very long,” says Reigen. “Let’s just stand here for a moment, like so, and you can have another look, a nice long look, and really think about it...”

    (There's nothing strange about being called back to exorcise the same haunted photocopier six days in a row. It must just be a very haunted photocopier.)

    Summary

    “It’s good. I like it.” Kaworu taps the rhythm of it on the desk with his fingers, hums a little. He can hear the struggle of Shinji’s heart in his throat. Kaworu wants to open up the boy’s mouth and watch it fly out. “Will you play it for me? This song.”

    In the beginning, there was Nothingness. From Nothingness came an egg, called Potential, which hatched into a Being.

    Who am I? the Being asked.

    And so it began.
