A/N: My first Planet Ladder fic. I love the series, but I've only read up to volume three, so a lot of this is just me letting my imagination run free as a daisy. Speculation, whee! The fic itself operates entirely on the assumption that Gold has something resembling an internal monologue, because that's more or less what it is.

So, Organic Gold's POV, as was already mentioned. Rather sketchy, but that's what I was going for.





"Designation Mirror"





"Bring her to me, Gold . . . "

[VOICE RECOGNITION . . . ACCEPTED.]

" . . . but keep her safe."

[ERROR]

[INVALID: PARADOX.]

He said to steal you. He said to protect you. And I wanted to steal you; I wanted to protect you.

But it was . . . a paradoxical request.

Irrelevant. I'm yours now.

I like being yours.

"Um . . . this isn't really a kiss, but . . . just close your eyes."

I didn't want to.

I wanted . . .

I wanted . . . to see you. Always, I want to see you.

Kaguya.

Please, let me see you.

"Kagami . . . " you say, and you look at me. Your eyes are blue. It is a pleasant color. And I wish I could tell you that, but whenever I see you, there is so much to say that I can't get any of it out.

Kagami. I love that name. You gave it to me, out of the blue. Blue like your eyes. You told me it means "mirror" in your tongue.

So I am Mirror now. And yes, mirrors are empty, but I still like that so much more than Doll-san or Gold, because I feel that when you are looking at me, I'm full. So I love it when you say that name. I love it that you call me by it; that you named me at all.

I am your Mirror.

And I am a doll. You called me a doll yourself.

But Waseda is a doll. And Waseda's soul is beautiful. Maybe mine could be too.

Have you ever . . .

Kaguya . . .

. . . have you ever . . .

"Have you ever found something that made it great to be alive?"

Kaguya . . .

You make me want to be alive.
