Umm… about that part I’m not so sure because something doesn’t fit. Thus I wanna confirm it first from the Japanese raws if possible but even with the given translation my understanding is that what Yuuki basically says is that she wants to make clear to Zero where she stands and not to explore her feelings about their relationship if not for any other reason just because if is the first there we have a contradiction >>
Let’s say that she indeed says that she wants to think things regarding Zero; then her firm and affirmative line “I cannot live with you and I belong to Kaname” (for which there isn’t any argument about its accuracy) is contradictive … no … it doesn’t make any grammatical sense.
So until we have more sources to check this out I’ll leave it there…
Some people are having a hard time accepting that Yuuki see herself only belonging to Kaname. They try to make themselves believe that Yuuki is sad that she belongs with Kaname.
I think Yuuki has every reason to look sad when saying she belongs with Kaname. Why? Kaname left her. The guy she sees herself belonging to left her and is killing Purebloods, it's sad. Also, saying this to Zero must be hard for her now that she knows how he feels about her.
Sad??? O.O I don’t even see her sad … I cannot post the scan since is against the scanlation’s team wishes but to me her face ain’t sad at all … if I had to describe it I would say that she is very serious and firm and this is exactly how she should be. I don’t know; how Yuuki should have uttered the words “I cannot live with you … I belong to Kaname” to Zero???? With a happy or smirky face and tone?
Even if there wasn’t that dark situation that she’ll have to face regarding Kaname still her facial expression should have been the exact same towards Zero simply out of respect for him, no?
Dunno … some things are beyond my logic O.o
So saying Yuuki didn't choose Zero because Zero can't live forever is stupid, IMO.
Totally agree … I always found that “argument” petty or the last resort to excuse the inexcusable lol
And the proof is given from the story itself … as you said this wasn’t an issue for Yuuki in the first arc while she still thought that she was a human and TOTALLY incompatible with Kaname. Yet never stopped her from longing him, from expressing her romantic feelings for him loud and clear and from saying eventually and almost instinctively the epic “I do” want to become a vampire and live with you, to Kaname! XD
This also reminds me another cheap excuse … that Yuuki is obligated to be with Kaname! Hahaha … to tell you the truth this might be the only reason that I was glad that Kaname left her! Because negates totally the allegation that Yuuki had no other option but to be with Kaname
Well now >>
a) She is totally free … Kaname said to her blatantly that I have abandoned you and as he had said way before to Cross >>>
Kaname: Yuuki has also started to rely on her own will in order to carry one living chairman… I can no longer chain her to me…
This reminds me of the old saying … if you love someone set him/her free… if she/he comes back to you it means that was always and truly yours! << Doesn’t fit Yuuki’s case currently??? XD
b) Kaname has made whatever he could to push her away and crush her feelings for him
c) And the new clue is that now Yuuki acknowledge Zero’s feelings for her openly AND more importantly his threat “I will kill you or we are enemies” which btw was one of the “strongest” arguments now is also nullified …
So why; and from when is coming the allegation that Yuuki is obligated to choose Kaname??? And where is based? O.o
On the contrary what I see is that Yuuki’s stance now shuts down any doubt about where she’s coming from lol
Gosh Yuuki...why do you have to be so blunt/cruel to my poor Zero.
Personally I would describe Yuuki’s “bluntness” as honesty… integrity which not only fits with her character but also owes to Zero out of respect… in the opposite case I would have found her cruel towards him. It’s crueler to feed someone with fables than to give with honesty a piece of your mind. And bottom line isn’t exactly what Yuuki always did towards Zero? Didn’t she say to him in the first arc that she only wants Kaname’s blood? Did she ever hide her feelings for Kaname?
When Yuuki ever gave Zero any hope? Thus her stance now isn’t something new but simply re-confirms what we knew and what Zero also knew.
Juliet wrote: Yes, i believe that apart from the obvious which is to be quite straightforward with him, her statement to Zero also indicates that her fate is with Kaname and the phrase "I can not live with you", hits in my head like saying that she is determined to say goodbye even to her own life, if needed, cause she knows that she can not live without anyone else but Kaname. And now Zero knows too what she is capable of doing > thus the sorrow feeling of the chapter/ her goodbye as you mentioned to Yori, the phrase "last journey".
I am not saying that it has to happen that way, i am only saying that i get the feeling that she might be ready in any case to reach extremes following Kaname to his death.
OR that maybe she is ready to leave everything behind and follow Kaname to the last frontier of the world if it’s needed XD … just to give a more optimistic version lol.
But yes … these goodbyes (maybe even Cross’s goodbye from afar) gives away that she is ready to reach the extremes … cuz really it is to wonder what else is there; in order to reach out Kaname; to get through to him??? She has tried almost everything?! So what is left?
But even if the only option that Kaname will leave her is to kill him then she might threaten him to kill herself as well and there Zero might play a role as you said >>
This line before the end could be something that Zero might remember and might want to save her a.cause he loves her and b. cause she saved his life as he said in this chapter c. because she is the light that he needs to keep him out of that dark forest...and that's better far better than nothing...
If for all the above reasons Zero sees that there is no way other than to save Kaname thus and Yuuki > then he shall fulfill and Kaito's words > standing above all...
Hm… and that reminds me of Takuma who is the only one of the rest of the characters who might be there for the final drama … as Sara said he must see it … so if also Takuma can rise above his sorrow then his role might become similar to Zero’s … because Takuma was Kaname's closest friend as well...
