1. post with your characters
2. respond to other people's characters with your characters
3. they tell you in detail what their character thinks of your character, ic or ooc! tl;dr is enouraged. don't have much/any cr? respond anyway, make magic happen!
4. then you react if you want!
5. other people do the same thing to you! maybe you can harvest your tl;dr to use in a cr chart later!

In all honesty, Ryoko's starting to feel bad.

Ryoko's been working harder and harder since August, wanting to try to get everyone and everything together, and she's been trying to give Taiga a little bit of space. Problem being, Ryoko herself also feels like she needs to be around to make sure Taiga's still eating well and she's still making it through Nightmares okay. But despite all that, Ryoko still cares immensely about Taiga. She's still her best friend in Nyoi-cho.

So why does she feel bad? Because now, she's starting to feel like she's using Taiga to cope.

Nothing has been normal in Nyoi-cho, everything's been so out of sorts and abnormal and Taiga's the one person in town that still maintains that same feeling of thinking all of this is crazy. But she's been babying her so much that she hasn't had time to grow, and she won't stop being overprotective. It's hard for Taiga to build any sort of confidence, and she feels selfish for focusing so much on herself instead of focusing on how to get Taiga where she needs to be.

Basically, as opposed to August where she didn't think Taiga was a replacement for Yuki, now she's starting to feel bad because Taiga is acting as that replacement. Someone who she feels obligated to support, who lacks self-confidence and needs as much help as she can get. But it's not fair to Taiga to do that. She never once asked for Ryoko's help when it came to being a magi, and instead she keeps butting in and foisting her problems directly onto her.

She absolutely wants Taiga to succeed, and knows Taiga can be a good magi. She cares a hell of a lot about her and will protect her from anything that threatens the town. But Taiga deserves a hell of a lot more than to be a replacement for someone else in Ryoko's life.
