| Shadow in Midnight chapter 1 . 6/4
Damn ittt I'm tearing again. One thing never fails to make me wonder-how do people get Alzheimer's at 40? Wouldn't it be Miyagi to get it? It's more...I dunno, realistic to me.
Poor Miyagi. At 60, his lover forgets him, only remembering him at 35. Even if he was going blind, even if he couldn't take care of Shinobu any longer, he still would. It's kinda like fighting for a dying breath, to simply hold on to a dream for a moment longer. To Shinobu, it was as if he was in a dream, where everything was perfect, while Miyagi was killing himself with the pain. Although Shinobu remembers him, he doesn't, at the same time...it must really tear Miyagi into two.
On a side and happier note, I was kinda freaking out when you put Nowaki in. I thought he'd stay in childcare, though. It's pretty funny, if you think of it, if Hiroki was the one who recommended Nowaki to Miyagi and Shinobu.

This story remind me of some movie with same theme (about Alzheimer), there are The Notebook & 50 First Dates (even this movie not talk about Alzheimer but a syndrome with same case, the main character just can have 1day memory then she forgotten what happen in her previous day before).
And what I love from the movies & your story are They have the best lover in the world who can accompany them no matter what & love them unconditionally... Even the one they loved forgot about them but they still there for them without force them to remember who is they really are... ;)
And you're right about in old age, it's a matter of companionship left...because no matter what happen to us in the future we just want to be together with the one we loved until dead separated us... :)

That was beautiful! I'd like to see what would happen to the Egoist and Romantica couple too.

Awwwwwww, that was soooo sad. :( I love it, though - I like the moral of the story. I also feel that in the end, companionship is important!

My chest is so tight right now after reading this. I think I have never seen a fan fiction as daring as this. Daring in the sense that you went out of the box and wrote about old age. I must admit, I can't even imagine all my ships old and wrinkly and I doubt they'd be having sex in that age! But this is really beautiful. Touched me more than I expected.

While there are a few grammatical errors in this piece, I have to say that you have nonetheless created an incredibly stirring portrait here of the futures of the Terrorist couple. Forty-three is very young for Alzheimer's, but it does happen. What a tragedy, especially with Shinobu's sharp mind. Sixty isn't all that old either really, and it must be terrible for Miyagi to know that he and Shinobu will most likely have many lonely years together in each other's company.
I do know in Japan that it is not as common for family members to be put in a facility for care and that such placement is often seen as a disgrace, but you point out so clearly here one of the hardships of same sex couples in the absence of offspring... the fact that there is often no one else left to care for one partner after the death of another. I have witnessed this on more than one occasion and the heartache and suffering of the remaining partner is profound. Not that having children ensures that one will receive proper care.
Having worked briefly in eldercare and with a population where Alzheimer's victims made up half the population, you have very accurately portrayed the dilemma, both for the sufferer and his family. The moment when Miyagi threw away the commitment papers was profound, as was his going with Shinobu to the library. What a beautiful picture of his love. I can see Miyagi having that kind of commitment, given his history.
It has been a long time since I have read a Terrorist story this touching and real. I applaud you for going beyond the normal, youth-based scope of FF and offering a very poignant, mature oneshot.
Thank you for writing this.

Oh my god! I loved this!

Wow! That was perfect!

My heart broke.

That was very touching, very sad. Shinobu's still so young! Poor Miyagi, watching on helplessly as their life together is erased from his lover's mind. I love that he stays by Shinobu's side even when he could take the easier, slightly less painful route of the care home.
