Bits of not much

And because I was looking through the doujinshi papers put out by Ono Fuyumi tonight, here's some info that was originally written in there. Some of it might contradict (to a degree) what was later written at the end of one of the manga vols...? Not sure. I haven't gone back and cross-checked. :P

Parts of this is more summary than true snippet. The copy quality's not the best so I can't make out some words. >.>

That said, ugh on what I'm trying to read. >.> Something about how Naru categorises people: as pumpkins or not pumpkins. People deemed as pumpkins are completely and utterly ignored and there are times when he forgets those people exist. When a person's deemed to be a pumpkin, he forgets what they look like as well as what their name is, and when spoken to, he gives only the barest of responses.

People who aren't pumpkins are separated into two groups. Pumpkin people and other. Pumpkin people are like pumpkins but for some particular reason can't be ignored like pumpkins. He remembers these people's names and faces, and when spoken to, he will respond (complete with sarcasm), but they're no more than that. And if they're not in front of him, he forgets they exist.

The 'others' are teachers and the weak. Teachers are those who he sees as having more knowledge than he and has something that they can teach him. To them, he's a model student, but if he decides that they no longer have anything to teach him, they might fall to pumpkin level. The weak are just that. Despite how he seems, Naru's actually quite the champion for justice. He is after all, an English gentleman. However, when they're not in front of him, he'll forget about them, too.

And there are a very few people who don't fit into this category.

It's not that he necessarily likes them. Most likely Naru doesn't feel that way about anyone. But they're people he can't ignore and forget. These people are forgiven for most things. If they say foolish things, he won't abandon them, and if they do something he doesn't like, he'll put up with it. If he says no, when pushed, he'll give in.

There's no way to determine who will fall into this group. Mostly likely, even he doesn't know why he can't ignore them, so it's impossible to determine who will become part of this group. However, it's easy to see who's in the group. If they say something completely foolish but aren't ignored, they're in that group. Alternatively, if the person were to hug him and not be pushed away, they're in that group.

Shortly after Martin and Luella adopted the twins, the two new parents couldn't help wondering if Naru didn't like them. So Gene told them that if they kissed Naru and he didn't slap them, he didn't hate them. If he hated it, he'd make how he felt clear. While he might not care for it, he didn't hate it so much as to eliminate them from his mind. So while he might not look happy about things, he'll put up with it.

While Naru won't let people into this group, once they're there, he's very weak against them. So Gene calls that group the 'inner group'. There aren't many people in that group: Gene, Luella, Martin, the psychologist and psychoanalyst Dr. Hinels (sp?), sleight of hand master and ventriloquist Jan Viani (sp??), and head of research Madoka. Gene didn't know whether co-worker Lin was in that group or not. Lin wasn't the type to say foolish things or to seek skin-ship.

While he could find out if he scanned Naru's mind, after reaching a certain age, Naru doesn't let him deep into his mind anymore. Regardless how much he might beg, Naru wasn't going to release his consciousness, and were Gene to do so forcefully, while he'd get angry, Naru would allow it, but ability-wise Gene could no longer force his way in like that.

[* refers to an earlier part where, when they were young, Naru and Gene could chat to one another over very great distances (with the Atlantic Ocean between them), but lately, that distance has shrunk and they now needed to be within the same country. Likewise, they could no longer force the door open and enter the other's mind. Apparently, Luella can tell when the two twins are chatting, but they don't know how/why she can tell.

L: You two chat when you're up to no good.

?: Not at all.

Naru looked away. Luella placed his plate before him.

L: And Naru looks away like that when things aren't going in his favour.

]

Gene's categorisation of people is in a way very simple: either he likes them or hates them. Normally, as long as he doesn't hate them, they fall into the 'like' category. Generally speaking, he likes people. Even so, he can't just accept being asked major things like Naru's (request to take his place). Things he doesn't like, he doesn't like. So it might be Gene is the more complicated.


Whoops. Getting late. ^^;
