Kaworu-kun said that he loved me. It was... it was the first time someone told me they loved me. He was like me, and Ayanami. I loved him. Kaworu-kun was the one who should have survived. He was a much better person than I am. Kaworu-kun should have been the one to survive.
QOTD: What’s a team that you’ve been proud to be a part of?
I love string quartets! I’m an orchestra, roles are very defined, even by placement. The first violins lead the melody and the first seat leads the group. Meanwhile, the bass is in the back providing rhythm. When I started playing in orchestra, I was a bassist. I thought it was very much me, being in the background providing support. But I get bored, and after several years, picked up the violin. I became first seat and loved being in the spotlight, as nervous as it sometimes made me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These days, I’ve put down my bow (oh the busyness of life!), but I’ve thought back to those two very different roles I once took. And today, though I’ll do what’s asked of me—supporting in the background or standing upfront—I most like the idea of a team, where we have somewhat equal footing, where no name is out above another. I like string quartets.
