//♥ Sae Kurosawa - Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly
I am so glad Sae is on one of these things for once because she’s actually fantastic?? No one understands just HOW much I love Sae Kurosawa (I mean wow url what) but she really is one of the greatest video game characters of all time??? She was raised believing a certain way and a certain thing, what was right and wrong was drilled into her by her village’s belief system and when it came to her turn she knew, she always knew being a twin there was a high chance they’d be picked for the sacrifice and when it came to it she was willing because she knew it was for the good of the village, and it meant being closer to her sister (they would literally become ONE being). She pretty much went insane with grief and whilst its extreme CAN ANYONE EVEN BLAME HER. The village is fucked up as shit and the one person she trusted with her entire soul, the other half to her, her best friend and twin sister LEFT HER BEHIND. She didn’t come looking, she left. (And went on to have a new family and proceeded to get involved with more, efffed up shit.) She didn’t try to escape again (well, she couldn’t, but she still never tried.) she went along with the ritual knowing that it could still be done with one person, having already been purified. She was a GREAT ASS FRIEND to Itsuki, she loved him almost as much as she loved Yae. She waited, for so long for her sister and she never stopped grieving for both Yae and Itsuki. She blamed HERSELF for what happened to Itsuki constantly, she was constantly blaming herself for every single hardship she had to face in her life. And then, when the ritual came and her spirit was overcome with grief, sadness and insanity, she let go. And became the “demonic” ghost we see. That’s why I really love the first gif because Crimson Butterfly wii really showed us the extent of Sae’s pain. ;__;
Okay, I’m done with my big emotional paragraph but I REALLY FUCKING LOVE SAE KUROSAWA.
