footnotes: I don’t think he’s in character, but I feel that pang for him here and there.

 

 

lingering shadows

 

It might kill you to admit it, but it hurts a little – sometimes, when you see that idiotic trio – they’re laughing, smiling, making a fool out of themselves – they’re carefree.

 

They remind you a little of your past.

 

It hurts because Gintoki is right smack in the middle between them – an old friend, his comrade – he is the only one left, and he has put the past behind – he’s moving on.

 

It’s not like he doesn’t care. You know he’ll pull, drag, tow you along – but you’d like to cling on a little longer. (Of times when Takasugi, Gintoki, and the others were fighting along with you)

 

For now, you’ll observe the three.

 

Gintoki has become weaker – his strikes are less forceful, footsteps slow – but they’re his strength, his children, even if they are always requesting for sushi, hot pots and piggyback rides, but they’re all Gintoki has now, so he’ll hold on tight, real tight this time.

 

You know this much.

 

You still hide in the shadows, lingering to the past and you wonder why it couldn’t be like this in the past.

D: I always sort of wondered if Katsura has ever felt replaced, so this was extremely gratifying. Thanks.

I've always felt really bad for him.

Oh, that was just so sad. I loved it. Katsura is such a heartbreaking character when you look past the retarded antics. Thank you for sharing this.

He is, isn't he? I love him to bits, just a little less than Takasugi though. He's a little bit more heartbreaking.

his voice is so smexy

:/ Thanks!

I feel for him so much. Idk, I feel for Takasugi too, can you imagine how much he must have missed the past, his sensei or something for him to go this crazy over revenge?
