Cherry Blossom Procession 4 7 17

[14:11] <Raphael> "You're sure this is alright?"-
[14:12] <Raphael> Raphael stood by the doorway of Hugues' cabin, watching his friend closely. Over the other man's shoulder, Raphael could see Caitlin and Suzie opening their overnight bags and engaging in some friendly bickering.
[14:17] <Mianplo> ["Yeah, yeah. Don't worry." Said Hugues gruffly, lightly punching Raphael in the shoulder. "You do your business."]
[14:26] <Raphael> "Alright," he said, letting the punch swing his shoulder back for added effect. "You know the drill then, call if you need your space. Don't worry about the time."-
[14:26] <Raphael> "Girls!" he called, "Make sure you're polite for Hugues, ok? He's doing me a favour."
[14:27] <Mianplo> ["Okay!"]
[14:39] <Raphael> After a few more minutes of fussing and a round of hugs (Which Hugues declined), Raphael made it out the door and headed for his own cabin.-
[14:39] <Raphael> The bubble was due to come down in little under nine hours time, and the halls of the Gendo were nearly empty. Most were already resting, or spending time with others in private. Still, he passed the odd crew member hurrying between last-minute tasks, and one of the common areas held a gaggle of off-duty Marines playing an intense-looking game of poker.-
[14:39] <Raphael> But it wasn't a long walk, and soon he'd made it back to the officer's dorms. He placed his thumb over the door lock, waited as it unsealed and then stepped inside.
[14:45] <Mianplo> ["Welcome back."-
[14:46] <Mianplo> [Misato was sitting at the dining table, an open white box in front of her, filled with disparate pieces of unfathomable plastic. Misato held in her hands a complex-looking pamphlet. "How's Hugues?"]
[14:51] * Raphael see-sawed a hand. "Better than yesterday. I'd like to think some time with the girls will do him some good, since he always got on with Suzie," Raphael said, unbuttoning his jacket and leaving it on a hook by the door. "At least he won't be sitting alone and drinking."
[14:52] <Mianplo> ["Yeah… Poor guy."-
[14:53] <Mianplo> ["I wish our Superheavy crews had a chance to be happier." Said Misato. "A lot of them deal with heavy stuff every day. The happiest seems to be Aida from Fox, which irritates me, because he's a little punk."]
[14:56] <Raphael> "Aida's not all that bad," Raphael smiled, pulling out his own chair from the table. "Very… enthusiastic, but he follows orders well enough."
[14:57] <Mianplo> ["Once I had to pick Tsucchin up from school. Aida ambushed me and spent fifteen minutes complaining about how he wasn't chosen to pilot an Evangelion. He deliberately got me lost on school grounds just so he could harangue me more."]
[15:00] <Raphael> "The first time I met him he bailed me up to ask about elements of the Dreadnoughts that we never made public," Raphael frowned. "He does like to harangue."
[15:00] <Mianplo> ["Like I said: punk." Said Misato. "I can't even rest easy with the fact that the little nerd'll die a virgin. Life just isn't fair."]
[15:03] <Raphael> "Be nice, Admiral," he smirked, leaning around to her side of the table.-
[15:03] <Raphael> "What've you got…?"
[15:04] <Mianplo> ["Hyuga gave me a board game he made up." Said Misato. "I couldn't focus on reviews, not anymore, so I just started reading random stuff like this."]
[15:04] <Raphael> "Any good?"
[15:05] <Mianplo> ["I don't know, yet. I'm still reading the rules."-
[15:05] <Mianplo> [Misato took out a board and unfolded it. It resembled a map of Tokyo, with each ward being its own game space.-
[15:05] <Mianplo> [And then Misato began placing plastic figures down.-
[15:06] <Mianplo> [Raphael would recognise- unpainted, yet identifiable: an Ayanami, Surov, Shinji, and of course Raphael himself…]
[15:12] * Raphael took all this in one piece at a time. The board, the figures… then he reached over to check the text on the front of the pamphlet. Was there a name?
[15:14] <Mianplo> ['Shadow Ops in Tokyo-2'.-
[15:15] <Mianplo> ["It's actually kind of neat." Said Misato. "There's multiple scenarios. There's the default one, where you have to find Yutada, but there's also one that's just a deathmatch between you and ERAD. And my favourite one is the one where you fuel a coup d'etat…"-
[15:15] <Mianplo> [She plopped a little figurine down on the board. It was unmistakeably Misato.-
[15:15] <Mianplo> ["And install me as Prime Minister."]
[15:17] <Raphael> "He… made a board game," Raphael said slowly, "Out of a top secret mission."
[15:22] <Mianplo> ["He came up with the idea before the mission. He was gonna use it as an instructional tool, to familiarise you with all of Tokyo-2's wards and PSB procedure." Said Misato. "He didn't finish it in time, so he figured… What the heck?"-
[15:23] <Mianplo> [Misato picked up the Misato and Raphael figurines and began playing with them. "You're the bestest Prime Minister ever!' 'Well you're the best bodyguard! Come here and give me kissies!'"]
[15:28] * Raphael laid a hand down in front of the remaining figurines to shield them from the shameful display.
[15:28] <Mianplo> [Especially San.-
[15:29] <Raphael> Especially San.
[15:29] <Mianplo> ["I don't think I'll play it tonight, though." Said Misato. "I was just thinking… Isn't it a little insane that one of your past adventures has turned into a board game?"-
[15:29] <Mianplo> ["You've really… Been up to a lot of crazy stuff since you joined NERV."]
[15:32] <Raphael> "Haven't we all, though?" he asked, picking up the Shinji figurine to give it a closer look. "If I step back and look at the last few years as a whole I get vertigo, but at the time it was just… a string of necessary actions, I suppose."
[15:32] <Mianplo> [Hyuga had modelled the Cradle of Adam on Shinji's armoured hand, -and- left Shinji helmetless, the crazed bastard.-
[15:33] <Mianplo> ["Agreed. I don't think we realise just what big things we're doing until they're done." Said Misato.]
[15:38] <Raphael> Despite his best efforts, Raphael found himself a little impressed by the craft on display.-
[15:38] <Raphael> "Right. One step at a time," he nodded, setting the figure back down to meet her eyes. "Just like my plan for when the war is done, where I activate the virus we left in the Tokyo MAGI to knock out their power grid and decapitate their leadership, installing you as Supreme Ruler."-
[15:38] <Raphael> He gave her a sunny smile.
[15:52] <Mianplo> ["With you as my eternally loyal army leader-slash-boytoy~?"]
[15:54] <Raphael> "It's the job I was born for, ma'am."
[15:56] <Mianplo> ["Hm~"-
[15:56] <Mianplo> ["Actually, can we skip the supreme ruler stuff and go straight to that?"]
[15:57] <Raphael> "Well then what would you need the army for?"
[16:22] <Mianplo> ["Bring me food?"]
[16:35] <Raphael> "I'll be honest, it seems like you're only really interested in the 'boytoy' part of the job description…"
[16:38] <Mianplo> [She beamed.]
[16:40] <Raphael> "Hm. I'll take it."
[16:45] <Mianplo> ["Then world conquest has been achieved…" She said, leaning forward, her eyes shining with sincerity, even if her mouth was twitching into a corpsing smile. "Because you're my world…"]
[16:47] <Raphael> "Oh no," he announced, shoulders shaking as he struggled with laughter. "Misato, no! No no no."
[16:49] <Mianplo> ["Are you laughing at my love? Are you? You are, you little punk."-
[16:50] <Mianplo> [Misato leapt out of her chair and went for Raphael's ribs- fingers pointed, ready to dig in and purge his insolence with aggressive tickles.]
[17:08] <Raphael> "Oh no-" he started, rising to his feet as she struck. She caught his ribs easily enough, but a moment after he bound her up in a bear hug. He dragged them both to the floor, making sure he took the impact himself.
[17:22] <Mianplo> ["Woof-"-
[17:24] <Mianplo> [She headbutted him in the chest on the way down. "Ow-"]
[17:27] * Raphael was still laughing, although he sounded a little winded by the fall. "Submit?"
[17:31] <Mianplo> ["Pfffft."-
[17:33] <Mianplo> ["Hey." She said, poking him in the ribs. "How have you been doing? Really?"]
[17:36] <Raphael> "Hm," he murmured, loosening his grip without actually letting her go. His eyes stayed locked on hers. "You don't buy my newfound cheer, ma'am? The others seem very taken with it."
[17:37] <Mianplo> ["I think you can be happy and melancholy at the same time. You contain multiples or whatever. Right?" She put a hand on his forehead.]
[15:37] <Raphael> "Yeah," he said quietly, shutting his eyes. "… I think I'd stay in the bubble forever if Ezekiel let me."
[15:40] <Minaplo> ["Mmm…" He felt her head settle softly against his chest. "Tell me about it?"]
[15:49] <Raphael> "Well this is what we wanted, isn't it?" he said quietly. "There's no 'next threat' when we're outside time. The last three days I woke up knowing that the people I cared about would make it to the end of the day, and… I don't think I've felt that since Impact. Have you?"
[15:53] <Minaplo> ["I don't think so."]
[15:59] * Raphael nodded, unsurprised. "You know what it's like. That fear eats at everything; every good moment," he said, eyes still shut. "It's exhausting. I'm sick of being tired."
[16:20] <Minaplo> [She burrowed her arms beneath him. "Soon."]
[16:21] <Raphael> "There'll always be a next threat. Even if we win."
[16:34] <Minaplo> [She was quiet for a little while. Eventually Misato stirred and replied.-
[16:35] <Minaplo> ["I know. But for at least a while, we'll be free."]
[16:53] * Raphael just sighed and tightened his arms around her. "That's the hope."
[17:03] <Minaplo> ["Hey. I wanna tell you something."]
[17:06] <Raphael> "Mm?"
[17:32] <Mianplo> ["You're right." She said. "I've spent a lot of time having that- that fog of worry in my life, spoiling a lot of moments, making me want to withdraw."-
[17:44] <Mianplo> ["But for me it's a little… Different." Said Misato, her voice subtly withdrawing. "I spent four years in a Seele lab, totally disengaged from the world around me. I… I don't remember a lot of what went on then. Not even of what I thought went on, because I saw a lot of strange things… That weren't all bad, either. And when I reentered the real world, it wasn't by choice; they
[17:44] <Mianplo> dragged me out of it."-
[17:46] <Mianplo> ["For years, I regretted having to live in the real world again, where everything seemed too important, like balancing a dozen porcelain plates at once. I just wanted to run away, back into that world I'd lived in, before everything, before other people."-
[17:46] <Mianplo> ["And that yearning never really went away." Said Misato, her voice gentle; she ran a hand through Raphael's hair. "Until being with you convinced me to stop looking back at it."]
[17:57] <Raphael> She would feel him relax - just a little, but the way the tension left his posture was unmistakeable.-
[17:57] <Raphael> "I don't know what I did to deserve you," he said quietly. His voice had grown ragged around the edges. "I really don't."
[18:01] <Mianplo> ["You made me feel I was worth deserving."]
[18:03] <Raphael> "You might be the most deserving person I've ever met."
[18:04] <Mianplo> ["S-Stop that."]
[18:04] <Raphael> "I don't think so."
[18:05] <Mianplo> ["Hmph." She buried her head into his chest. "Well… You're pretty deserving too, you know."]
[18:07] <Raphael> "I'll have to trust your judgement on that one," he said, managing a little chuckle. "But thank you."
[18:07] <Mianplo> ["You're welcome."-
[18:08] <Mianplo> ["Although why you'd want to stay in a time bubble somewhere so goddamned cold is beyond me, though. You're lucky I still have all my toesies."]
[18:09] <Raphael> "I like the cold, thank you very much."
[18:14] <Mianplo> ["Ugh. You're so European."]
[18:18] <Raphael> "Oh, now I'm European?"
[18:25] <Mianplo> ["Yes! But like, Russian or something. Yes. Russian, but sexy."]
[18:26] <Raphael> He gave her a gentle shove. "No need to be rude."
[18:27] <Mianplo> ["C'mon. You like me when I'm rude."]
[18:27] <Raphael> "… Sometimes," he admitted.
[18:29] <Mianplo> ["I have just the thing for you." Purred Misato. "Tonight, you and I are going to get drunk and prank call everyone in high command."]
[18:42] <Raphael> That got him laughing, though even when he stopped he didn't seem in a rush to speak. The tension was finding its way back in.-
[18:42] <Raphael> "I admit, I had a different idea," he said. "Do you think we could talk…?"
[18:44] <Minaplo> ["Sure."]
[18:46] <Raphael> "… I might need to get up for a bit."
[18:47] <Minaplo> ["But I'm comfy."]
[18:47] <Raphael> "… Yeah, so am I," he sighed. "The sacrifices we make, hm?"
[18:50] <Minaplo> [Misato grumbled, but she pulled herself off Raphael quickly.]
[18:54] * Raphael sat up as well, but he kept hold of one of her hands. His thumb played lightly over her knuckles. "Everyone wants to know what I plan to do, if we get to the other side of this. Have they been asking you the same thing?"
[19:42] <Minaplo> ["Of course they have. I just keep telling them I'm going on a tropical vacation for a year."]
[19:46] <Raphael> "See, I said we were hiding up a mountain."
[19:46] <Minaplo> ["Lots of tropical places have mountains."]
[19:51] <Raphael> "I was thinking of something more like the resort in Switzerland…"
[19:52] <Minaplo> ["Hmm. Snowy scenery, but well heated, with hot springs, good food, and a well-stocked bar…"]
[19:52] <Raphael> "-I- liked it."
[19:53] <Minaplo> ["I did too~"]
[19:57] * Raphael smiled.-
[19:57] <Raphael> "Does it ever bother you? That we haven't made firmer plans?"
[19:58] <Minaplo> ["Well… Sometimes. I can tell it bothers other people more than myself." Said Misato.-
[19:59] <Minaplo> ["Like, take Rei. She's already talking about being married, having kids and going to university…"-
[19:59] <Minaplo> ["But you know, that's what works for her. For Rei, I think, just being able to make plans like that makes her feel happy." Said Misato.-
[20:00] <Minaplo> ["But you and me? … Nah. I mean, a little. But really, I trust our instincts when it comes to this."]
[20:06] <Raphael> "I do too," he said, squeezing her hand. "I think we've done pretty well, all things considered."-
[20:06] <Raphael> "… Would you mind telling me what does bother you, though? Even if it's only a little?" He met her eyes and gave her a calm smile. "I'd like to know, if you're willing to share."
[20:08] <Minaplo> [She squeezed back. Raphael would notice that she'd had a manicure recently- maybe even today.-
[20:12] <Minaplo> ["Honestly…"-
[20:15] <Minaplo> ["I've spent so much of my life looking at things wrong." She said. "I spent my school years striving to be the best just to please my self-occupied parents. Then after Impact, I spent so much of my energy avoiding anything but the lightest, superificial relationships…"-
[20:16] <Minaplo> ["So when I see all these other people around me with plans to raise a thousand kids or get married in space or whatever, and they ask about my plans, and I have to pass it off as a joke, I end up wondering… Have I simply not gotten around to making plans? Or is this the last manifestation of my wanting to avoid closeness?"]
[20:19] <Raphael> "I've wondered the same thing."
[20:37] <Minaplo> ["Y-You have?"]
[20:43] <Raphael> "Not about you," he clarified quickly. "About me. There's a lot we've avoided talking about, for plenty of good reasons, but… it's not as though I've been thinking about what I want either. Sometimes I think I'm using those reasons like an excuse."
[20:46] <Minaplo> ["Right. Right. You get it." Said Misato.]
[20:47] <Raphael> "I get it."-
[20:49] <Raphael> "… but I'd like to," he said quietly. "I'd like to make those plans with you, I mean."
[20:51] <Minaplo> ["You… You would?"]
[20:54] <Raphael> "Mhmm," he said, giving her a wary glance. "More than anything, I think."
[20:55] <Minaplo> [She watched him with sharp intensity.]
[21:06] <Raphael> "Don't worry," he smiled. "I've been military too long to think that proposing the night before a major battle is a good idea. Hugues would have my head."-
[21:06] <Raphael> "… Although if we're talking hopes and plans, asking you to marry me tonight has its appeal. Superstitions are all well and good, but you look beautiful." The smile that followed was slow and strangely shy, but it didn't seem to be going anywhere.
[21:07] <Minaplo> [She stared at him.-
[21:08] <Minaplo> ["J… Just to be clear." Said Misato, her voice shaky. "Are you saying that tonight, you want to propose, or are you proposing we should get married… Now?"]
[21:16] <Raphael> "… oh god," he said, staring at her face. The smile dropped. "I'm fucking this up, aren't I?"-
[21:16] <Raphael> "This is why I don't talk without thinking things through."
[21:19] <Minaplo> [Misato reached out and took his face in her hands. "You can't be fucking up that badly." She said. "Because whichever you meant, my answer's yes."]
[21:37] <Raphael> "I was… tonight I was going to- talk about it, maybe suggest we make some… you know, ma'am, plans and things when this was done, so-" He was breathing a little too fast, like he was on the verge of hyperventilating.-
[21:37] <Raphael> And yet as she watched, she could practically see his brain start to process what she said. The gears turned, slower than they normally would, but they turned all the same, and…-
[21:38] <Raphael> He stopped talking.-
[21:38] <Raphael> "… it is?"
[21:39] <Minaplo> ["Yes."]
[21:39] <Raphael> "…"-
[21:39] <Raphael> "Oh."
[21:39] <Raphael> That seemed the extent of his current thought process.
[21:41] <Minaplo> ["…"-
[21:41] <Minaplo> [She stared at him.-
[21:41] <Minaplo> [And then she dissolved into an utterly helpless puddle of high-pitched giggles that drove the breath from her lungs and left her trying to suck air in around her constant convulsions of laughter.]
[21:45] * Raphael stared down on her, and for a moment he seemed as utterly at sea as he had when their relationship had started.-
[21:45] <Raphael> "I…-"
[21:45] <Raphael> And before he could manage any more, he started laughing too.
[21:45] <Minaplo> [She grabbed his arm.-
[21:45] <Minaplo> ["Schro… Schrodinger's… Proposal…"]
[21:50] <Raphael> He was clutching at her shoulder to keep from falling over. "O-oh my god I'm-… sorry, Misato-"
[21:51] <Minaplo> [She leaned forward, whispering conspiratorily into his ear:-
[21:51] <Minaplo> ["Christmas cake no longer-"-
[21:51] <Minaplo> [Before collapsing, literally, to the floor, crying actual tears of laughter.]
[22:01] <Raphael> This continued for some time.-
[22:02] <Raphael> But eventually they'd find themselves in much the same place that they started: Lying on the floor, arms tightly around one another. "That… that was a mess," he managed, still catching his breath. "Oh my god. I'd been planning that for weeks."
[22:07] <Minaplo> ["What were you going to do?"]
[22:14] <Raphael> "Well… I bought you a ring, obviously," he started, eyes on the ceiling. "But I didn't want to force you to decide tonight, because… well, funnily enough I didn't want to put any pressure you."-
[22:14] <Raphael> He let out a few more wheezing laughs at that before he continues. "S-so I had Sarasvati make a jewelery box time-locked until a week from today."-
[22:14] <Raphael> "And I thought if we made it that far, we could both sit down with a bottle of wine and decide together."
[22:20] <Minaplo> ["Oh my God, you're so cautious. That's very cute."-
[22:20] <Minaplo> ["Not only d-did you buy a ring, but you gave me a week-long take-backsies window."]
[22:21] <Raphael> "It sounds bad when you put it like that…" he winced.
[22:21] <Minaplo> ["No, no! It sounds great!"-
[22:21] <Minaplo> [She reached over and kissed him two or four or eight times, the exact number being irrelevant.-
[22:22] <Minaplo> ["I never wanted one of those asshole things where some guy proposes to me at the Disneyland parade or something, y'know? Giving me a chance to back out is really sensitive."]
[22:26] <Raphael> "It still applies, if you wake up tomorrow and realize that I've tricked you into marriage through catastrophic laughter."
[22:29] <Minaplo> ["Silly."-
[22:29] <Minaplo> [She snuggled up to him. "I already know how I want to be married."]
[22:29] <Raphael> "You do?"
[22:29] <Minaplo> ["I do. That's okay, right…?"]
[22:31] <Raphael> "Of course it is."
[22:31] <Minaplo> ["I-I've always wondered if I would get married at all, so my wedding- my dream wedding- is very important to me, ok?"]
[22:33] <Raphael> "I understand. Anything you want," he said.
[22:34] <Minaplo> ["I want a wedding on a tropical beach." She said, closing her eyes. "Where the sea is so clear that you can see the bottom, with the weather as blue as anything, with sand so fine and white that it feels like little diamonds…"-
[22:34] <Minaplo> ["Does that sound good so far?"]
[22:35] <Raphael> "Mhmm," he said, listening intently.
[22:35] <Minaplo> ["And I want cold drinks and fresh seafood, with lots of sushi and fruity cocktails…"]
[22:36] <Raphael> "Of course."
[22:36] <Minaplo> ["And I want it to be non-attire."]
[22:37] <Raphael> "… sorry?"
[22:38] <Minaplo> ["It's a bit of a fancy term, I guess, but 'attire' means clothing, so…"]
[22:46] <Raphael> "Non-… clothes." He said slowly. He craned his neck, fully expecting her to be laughing.
[22:48] <Minaplo> [She was not laughing.-
[22:49] <Minaplo> ["That's what I want." She stared at him, her eyes wide and soulful.]
[22:49] <Raphael> "I… see."-
[22:49] <Raphael> "So would that be, erm, everyone? Or just us?"
[22:51] <Minaplo> ["Oh no, everyone." Said Misato. "In fact, I've already decided: I want Rei, Marianne and Hikari to be my bridesmaids, and I want Yanmei to be my maid of honour."]
[22:55] <Raphael> "Mm… hmm," he managed, keeping his face relaxed. He was between a rock and a hard place: Either she was serious (She couldn't be serious, surely) which would be terrible, or she was lying, in which case he couldn't afford to break first.
[22:56] <Minaplo> ["Thank you for being understanding, sweetie." Said Misato, holding him a little tighter.]
[22:59] <Raphael> "Of course…"-
[22:59] <Raphael> "I'm thinking of Lucas, Hugues, Thomas and Ban-Ban for groomsmen."
[22:59] <Minaplo> ["Rei will be so honoured." Said Misato warmly.-
[23:00] <Minaplo> ["It's probably a little early for you, but have you thought of a best man…?"]
[23:03] <Raphael> "Blue."
[23:03] <Minaplo> ["Ooooh."]
[23:06] <Raphael> There was the long pause of two people perfectly comfortable in one another's compan-
[23:06] <Raphael> "… Nevermind, I'll take the loss. We're not doing this, are we?"
[23:07] <Minaplo> ["… Sorry?"]
[23:08] <Raphael> "You're joking. Aren't you?" he asked. "I didn't want to be the first to break, but I just… can't. It's too much, ma'am, you beat me."
[23:08] <Minaplo> ["…"]
[23:09] <Raphael> "Ha ha," he began, as though trying to start them off.-
[23:09] <Raphael> "… ha."
[23:17] <Minaplo> ["I thought it'd be nice." Said Misato. "People wouldn't have to pay for expensive clothes, and it also means they won't overheat in the tropical sun… And they could run into the water without worrying about changing… And I thought it'd send a nice statement. You know." She drew a line across her chest, tracing the scar. "That I'm not worried about what this 'represents' anymore… And that I think everyone there is beautiful regardless of their scars."]
[23:22] <Raphael> The next time she looked up she'd find his face had turned ash white.-
[23:22] <Raphael> "Oh no. Misato, I'm so sorry, I just assumed— because you've never talked about anything like this before, I thought you were just trying to get me to flinch. If it's really what you want, we can try"
[23:22] <Minaplo> ["Really?!" She said, her eyes lighting up.]
[23:23] <Raphael> "I mean, I can't guarantee
I don't think Yanmei wouldn't even consider it, but…"
[23:24] <Minaplo> ["But she'd have to. She's my maid of honour."]
[23:25] <Raphael> He looked utterly helpless. "Well we can try…"
[23:25] <Minaplo> ["Rei will agree." Said Misato firmly. "And once Rei agrees, she can get anyone to do anything. She'll convince Isaiah, who'll convince Yanmei, and once we get Yanmei, the rest will fall like dominoes…"]
[23:27] <Tao> "… of course."
[23:30] <Minaplo> ["Oh, I'll need to make sure Asuka's going as well. If Asuka's going, her competitiveness will drive her and Yanmei both to do whatever is useful for them to do."-
[23:30] <Minaplo> ["And you know what's the best thing?"]
[23:31] <Raphael> "What?"
[23:31] <Minaplo> ["The wedding's going to be full of lots of beautiful women and handsome men, but I feel so secure that I'm not worried at all~" She kissed him again. "We have eyes only for each other~"]

[23:38] <Minaplo> ["Hey."]
[23:38] <Raphael> "Mm?"
[23:39] <Minaplo> ["I love you."]
[23:39] <Raphael> "I love you too."
