Trying to gain back inspiration. It's not going well. No idea who I got these from, they've been sitting in a file labeled 'prompts' for a few months, and apparently, I was too lazy to write it down. These are probably from LiveJournal, though.
It takes all of 001's power to keep them safe, and even then it's almost not enough to protect them from the crash.
At some point, 002 realizes that his memory from before being a cyborg is dimming with time.
003 tried not to fight, in the beginning. But that proved to be futile as she realized if she didn't fight, they'd take even more from her.
It should be impossible, 004 thinks as Vina takes his hand, but he feels his (mechanical) heart beat erratically anyway.
005 knows he is loved, by people that are as unique as he is. He also knows that the man trying to jump off the bridge is loved by someone (somewhere) too, and refuses to let go.
006 is well aware that most think him soft- he's still rather round, thanks in part to the fuel tank for his fire breath- but he has no problem with what they think. He knows he's capable of melting anything.
Great Britain would give anything to hold her one more time. 007 knows that it wouldn't last.
008 doesn't know which is worse. The physical shackles that once imprisoned him, or the metaphorical ones that came with becoming a cyborg.
He's been living in a different speed from the others for over a month, and 009 doesn't even try to stop the broken sobs that escape him. No one will ever hear him, anyway.
As both 0010s fall to the ground, 009 can't help but notice the way they cling to each other, and wonders how precious family is.
011. Odds and Ends
004 is shaken by 0011's attack, more because it highlights how haphazardly his own systems were put together.
As far as 007 is concerned, any lady who could serve tea as tasteful as that was not a monster.
It's not right, 0013 thinks as he gently puts the little girl on the swing set, but he has no choice but to kill 009, even though he'd rather be his friend.
There's nothing left, he realizes as he looks at Pyunma. He knows he was once friends with the man in front of him, but there is no emotional connection, and for a moment there is a faint echo of horror at the realization, but it is gone before he can think.
003's very presence is enough to make them relax, especially when she hums a lullaby meant for 001.
Somehow, the others don't quite believe it when Joe admits he used to get in fights as a kid.
"You forgot to shape-shift your clothes again." 008 tosses the pile at a slightly embarrassed 007.
Kozumi knows when Gilmore needs a push, and the fact the other doesn't realize he frets over the cyborgs like they were his children is reason enough to push him in the right direction.
They're both battered and burned, but more importantly, they're alive. And that is all that matters.
The eight of them are on pins and needles as they wait for Gilmore to let them know when the new Cyborg is ready- he's an unknown, and it's possible he'll choose to fight them.
Most of these are from the 2001 series, and occasionally the manga will be referenced, as well as possibly the Legend of the Super Galaxy movie, as they're all of what I remember of the 009 series.
