I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.

I HAD APPROXIMATELY A DOZEN FEELINGS ABOUT THIS ALL AT ONCE.

The things that people say about Ami aren’t really cruel, the worst that is said about her is that she seems unfriendly, otherwise it’s mostly thinking she has this really enviable life or surprise that she still studies despite being such a genius and rumoring about her huge IQ.

Meanwhile, Ami stands off to the side, far enough away that you’re not sure if she hears them or if she just doesn’t walk over because she doesn’t need to know or because she’s used to people not being very friendly with her, always moving out of her way and letting her pass by and closing in with their friends.

At the same time, this is Usagi’s first real impression of her, that her other friends mention that Mizuno seems pretty distant and unfriendly, but there’s this moment of pure… something, something a lot like curiosity when Naru says that she’s never seen Mizuno with friends.  Part of that is Usagi’s own nature, she NEEDS her friends so desperately, she can’t imagine not seeking them out, she’s like, “….eh?” at the idea of not having them around her as much as possible.

But I like to think, with her slowly waking memories of the Silver Millennium, she’s also sort of feeling something out here, that there’s a quiet something scratching at the back of her mind, that this girl is supposed to have friends, that this girl is supposed to be thought of as friendly, that this girl is wrapped up in my thoughts of friendship.

Then she sees Luna approach Ami on the street later—and Luna was STALKING THEM IN A TREE, SHE WAS TOTALLY WAITING FOR THE RIGHT MOMENT AND TOTALLY LOOKED RIGHT THE FUCK AT USAGI WHEN APPROACHING AMI, she totally planned this to show Usagi that Ami was a Friendly—and Usagi sees her happily lean down to smile and scratch under the kitty’s chin and oh my god my feelings just about burst out of the feelings place because LOOK AT AMI’S HAPPY FACE I CAN’T STAND ALL THESE FEELINGS.

But also that this is Usagi and Ami’s friendship right here, that Usagi has these natural instincts that draw her to Ami, she sees the good in her right away, sees that she IS friendly and THIS IS IT THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THEIR FRIENDSHIP THEY BOTH WON’T BE SO LONELY ANYMORE AND THEY WERE BROUGHT TOGETHER BY A TALKING CAT

OH MAN IF I DIDN’T SHIP OTHER THINGS HARDER I AM 100% SERIOUS THAT I WOULD BE ALL THE FUCK OVER USAGI/AMI AND THEIR ADORABLE MEET CUTE, I AM SERIOUS.
