silverbluebaka - Even if it's not in his body, so long as his soul is intact he'll live
Ch 208: Furuichi is dead! Defeat Takamiya, collect the soul, save with his friend… but is a soul in 6 pieces still intact?

(because I re-read 208 yesterday and panicked over the definition of 'intact')

Thecurtaincall - We're gonna die young
He was on the verge of breaking down. Death was breathing down his neck and he couldn't run fast enough. Looking at the chaos, he knows he's going to die here. But when he sees someone else hurt, he'll push down the panic to help the other. Because he can't stand there while his best friend breaks down in front of him. He'll stall his own death if it means he can help Oga.

Trump’s El Paso Photo Is Obscene - The Atlantic
"The latest publicity photograph of the president in El Paso, Texas, knocked me into silence for a good half hour this morning while I tried to figure out the many layers of obscenity on display. The photo features a baby whose parents were killed in El Paso a few days ago. The baby survived because his parents shielded him with their bodies. In the photo, he is cradled by Melania Trump. The president is next to her; both are smiling broadly, and the president is offering a thumbs-up. The child is expressionless and wearing a cute plaid bow tie."

One is Chinese. One is American. How a journalist discovered and reunited identical twins

The mother had given birth in a bamboo grove, trying to avoid detection by the government. She and her husband then fled to another province with one twin while leaving the other with an uncle and aunt. But one day when the girls were almost 2 years old, five men working for family planning stormed the house, restrained the aunt and took away the screaming toddler.

He told me his father had been pressuring them to have a boy — in keeping with rural tradition in which the family line is continued through men. His family had lived in Gaofeng for hundreds of years, and it was the men who tended the graves in the family cemetery. When the twins were born, he was pleased to be defying the expectations. “I was so happy when they were born. I couldn’t stop laughing.”

She kept replaying in her head a scene she’d read in a magazine about a 2-year-old girl crying “No, Daddy!” as her father threw her down a well.

“I cried whenever I thought about that girl,” she said. “I knew we had to adopt from China.”

The twins didn’t look directly at each other. They stood side by side, facing a photographer we had brought along. Nobody spoke. Nobody moved. I imagined the twins as a bride and groom in an arranged marriage meeting for the first time.

Nearly 150,000 children have been adopted from China since 1992, 96,000 of them Americans, mostly girls.
