Entry Fifty-Six: March 5th, 2010

(Auto-transcribed voice post)

Hey everybody. I know it's been awhile since my last entry, but...I dunno. I've just been really tired lately. I know that's no excuse or anything, but...sorry.

Anyway, after we defeated Nyx, everything went back to normal...well, maybe a little too normal.

Remmber how everyone was worried about losing our memories after the final battle? It turns out that's what actually happened...

...but it didn't affect me, probably because I've still got the power of the Universe contained within me.

So I've been trying to live as normally as I can, even though it's like all my friends are strangers now. It sucks, but what am I gonna tell them?

"Hey, guys, we all battled the incarnation of death together! We shot ourselves in the head, it was great!"

I'm sure that'd go over really well.

So it's been deja vu all over again, pretty much.

I was pretty bummed about it for awhile...

...but lately I've been too tired to think about it.

All I want to do is sleep anymore.


...I don't know.

I guess when I think about it, I'm really happy about how everything's turned out.

Nyx isn't gone or anything, but at least we really do have our whole lives ahead of us now. If she wakes up again, then I'll seal her back where she belongs.

Same thing I did before. It was no sweat.

No sweat at all...I can't say as much for almost being late to class, though.

It wasn't just the other people in the dorm who couldn't remember the Fall, by the way. It's everyone. I can't say I'm surprised.

If it had to be this way for everything to be alright again, then...I'm glad.

I tried going to the mall after school on Wednesday, but I just couldn't get into it. I didn't want to look around the stores or anything...too tired, couldn't focus.

Instead, I just went home.

I thought about going to bed early, but instead I had an urge to stop by Escapade. There was a woman there who told fortunes...I guess I've been worried about what the future holds for me lately, for some reason.

I'm...not sure what to think about her answer. I'm not sure what to think about anything.

I'm so tired.

I didn't do much after school yesterday, either.

It was more of the same...

...including trying to enjoy myself at the places I used to hang out at before the Fall.

It didn't work.

I went to bed early again.

Aigis came to see me this morning.

Aigis: I'm so happy to see you again...I'm sorry to show up so suddenly, but I really needed to talk to you.

Aigis didn't forget, either. She looked like she was about to cry, and I couldn't blame her for that.

She was afraid I'd leave, and...and...I told her it'd be okay, that it wouldn't happen.

Graduation was today. It had already begun by the time she came to get me because I slept in. No surprise there.

She and I went together regardless.

In the end, we made a promise, and it was time to keep it.

The class representative was in the middle of her speech when we arrived.

Representative: Though this is our last day together, we want the senior class to know that you've truly earned our respect. We wish each of you good health, happiness, and prosperity. On this auspicious occasion, I bid you all a fond farewell on behalf of the student body.

Mitsuru came on stage next.

Mitsuru: When I first addressed you from this podium, I spoke to you all about seizing opportunity while you had the chance...well, it must have been fate that intervened and gave me an important reminder of this. As many of you know, my father unexpectedly...

Something seemed off about her speech.

It was then that I realized what was happening; Aigis and I snuck off to the rooftop together to avoid the ensuing commotion.

Reunited (This includes the next scene and video as well.)

I' tired now.

Listen, everyone.

I know you've all been reading this...

...following along with our joy and our sorrow...

...laughing and crying with us.

I'm going to rest soon...'ll be so nice. But listen.

Nyx is sleeping now. She won't be coming for you, but one day you're going to die. Everyone is.

That's just life...

...and you can't fight against it. Why would you try? It's not sad, it's not wrong, it's

I don't know when I'll talk to you all again, but... me one last favor, okay?

Aigis found her reason for living. If you're reading this, please try and do the same.

Life is a please don't ever take it for granted.

Everyone's here now.

I get to be with my friends again...I've waited so long.

I think that seeing everyone's smiling face is my reason for living. One of my reasons, anyway.

So I'm going to smile with them one last time, and then...

...I'm going to sleep.

I should talk about living life to the fullest...I mean...I'm here with Aigis, and everyone else is coming, and...

...all I want to do is sleep forever... life is a goddamn me
