Real

Sometimes, when nothing seemed real and he started to forget how it felt to be alive, he'd let his little brother to pull him across the forest and stare at the sky while his brother practiced. Then, still waiting and a thousand miles away, he'd go through the motions and oblige a smile when his little brother would gasp as every kunai hit its target. It'll only be when clumsy hands attach themselves around his neck and there was a warmth pressing on and around his back that he would breath his brother's adoration in and start to remember.

What would happen if he never remembered? Would it make him stronger, since if he never really lived then he could never really die either? One day, Itachi decides he'd find out, and knows every plan needs it's backup.

Sasuke would do. If it didn't work out in the end, he could always go back to Sasuke and remember.

Ah yes. The compulsary conspiracy theory of Why Itachi Killed His Clan. Response to Fluff Lovers' Dreams has been pleasantly surprising and slightly depressing, in a way. ...if only my angst drabbles got that kind of response. Oh well, writer's personal pride or whatever. Woot.
Onwards to work those rusty fluffy wheels! This is the official ending of this collection, btw. Though knowing me, this probably means one more drabble before it really ends, maybe.Many thanks to those who reviewed and stuck it throughout the collection. I really appreciate it. XD
