A Durarara!! Story that will make you “awww”
Last summer, I stayed over at my grandparents house with my little cousins, Gunder and Grey. One night I was staying up late watching Durarara!! There was a knock at my door, it was Gunder, he told me that he couldn’t fall asleep. So I invited him in, and asked him if he wanted to watch a cartoon with me. I told him it was a very special cartoon, and he got very excited. We watched episode 8, I believe, and I thought he wouldn’t like it, I thought that maybe he’d get kinda freaked out by some of the mild violence and the fact that Celty is headless, but it did not get to him one bit. He LOVED it.
Months later, after I got my Celty cosplay, my cousins came over because I had to babysit them. They were playing around the house and Gunder went up to my room and immediately saw my Celty helmet. He came running downstairs yelling, “is that helmet yours?!” I nodded in reply, “it sure is!” And that kid just BEAMED at me saying “c-can you put it on?” I grinned, “of course, would you like to see the whole outfit?” and then he smiled even wider, “yeah!”
So I went downstairs with my Celty cosplay on, and he just flipped. He giggled and smiled, and I asked, “do you know who I am?” and he said, “Celty! I remember!” and I held out my arms, taking him into a hug, and he was so happy. He then looked up at me and said, “Celty is my favorite!”
I almost started crying.
Gunder is only six.
That’s a photo my dad took of Celty and the boys.
