Dazai, seems you've stabilized lately.

Dazai Osamu icon.png

Haruo-sensei, you can tell, huh?! I really have been feeling that way!
Just from eating delicious food and going to bed in peace can make a person so healthy and happy - what an amazing revelation!
Who knows if this'll shatter my identity eventually, but what do you think about the new me, Haruo-sensei!

Satou Haruo icon.png

Well, there are some parts of you that'll never change, so...
I'm thinking about the other day when you came crying to me, begging to lend you money.
Reminded me that you used to do this in the old days, too.

Dazai Osamu icon.png

Ah, those times...! Those were just slight mistakes on my part...

Satou Haruo icon.png

Calm down. Well, I do think you're growing up bit by bit, maybe we can call it you finally becoming "Passable as Human".

Dazai Osamu icon.png

Ha-Haruo-sensei praised me...! Yaysies...

Satou Haruo icon.png

...Dazai, I used to think you were only capable of ruin. But now it's different.
All kinds of things are changing little by little.
Like how you can write that kind of novel, now. You and me both.

Dazai Osamu icon.png

Sobs... Thank you very much...

Satou Haruo icon.png

Hey, don't cry!

Dazai Osamu icon.png

...I've finally come to be able to think it might be okay for me to stay here.

Huh! you just now realized this...
Then you'd better not forget that thing you're feeling right now!

Hagiwara Sakutarou icon.png

Hakushuu-sensei, why won't you reply to my letters... Even though I sent them again and again... Asking you to please reply...
I even sent you finished poems... Is it because my talent has all dried up...?

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

So basically, since you couldn't contain yourself, you came directly to speak with me?

Hagiwara Sakutarou icon.png

Eh, ah, th-that's... not true, it's just that... I can't... I can't write poems, and...

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

Jeez. What do you think this is?

Hagiwara Sakutarou icon.png

C-could it be... A reply!?

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

No, it's not. It's the poems you've sent me up until now.
I gathered up all the good ones, but haven't gotten the chance to return them to you until now.
I heard from the librarian that you've been holing up in your room, so I thought this was a good time to return them.

Hagiwara Sakutarou icon.png

These... Sobs... Sensei... Ghuhh, thank you very much...

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

Isn't it your job to have confidence in the work you've done? You should not bother people with each and every one.

Hagiwara Sakutarou icon.png

Sobs... Sniff sniff... Hakushuu-sensei...

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

It seems you've holed up in your room so long you've forgotten how to have a conversation with somebody.
Well, it's good that you at least came out of your room. It's a step forward for you.

Not enough to make a full-on scoop, but I picked up some good info. Like, one of those unexpected sides.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

People's daily schedules, what they do in their jobs... Also their trivial complaints about their work and how their salary is...

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

I see... Sounds tough.
Alrighty then, let's print a newspaper. It's been a while. Well, let's leave out the trivial complaints and such, though.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Ah, I just had a great idea! How about we gather up "Gratitude Testimonies" from the guys?

I can see right through you. I'll hear out your troubles.

Masamune Hakuchou icon.png

I've got no troubles. True, sometimes I wondered who this version of me existing here really is.
And I've come to the conclusion that I exist here as one of the Naturalists.
That's my understanding of it. To be honest, it's obvious that people would perceive me differently from how I see myself.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

....Haha, that's true, that's how the world is.

Masamune Hakuchou icon.png

Doppo...I've wanted to say this before, but it's no use poking your nose where it doesn't belong.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Huh? Are you looking down on my kindness?

Masamune Hakuchou icon.png

No. I'm grateful, so I will offer some kindness of my own.
Your worrying about others is a virtue, but there's no use doing that for me.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Huh, so you're saying you don't need my advice...that hurts...

Masamune Hakuchou icon.png

Yes, that's why I wondered if I should say it to you. You're free to give that concern of yours to others.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Haruo-san, listen to me for a second. Before, I was talking about how I wanted a "stimulus" for writing a nice novel, right?

Satou Haruo icon.png

...Now that you mention it, I guess you were. You were going on about the ideal woman or something.

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

Yes, and so I went to Librarian-san for advice.
And when I did, they suggested that I treat that insatiable greed as a lust for creation.

Satou Haruo icon.png

Yeah, yeah. So what exactly did you want me to respond to such an obvious thing?

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

No, it's just that I had such an epiphany and I was thinking about how I wanted to share it with someone.
My thirst has never been satisfied to this day, so I never even began to imagine this conclusion.

Satou Haruo icon.png

Jeez. You are such a blissful fella, you should really have more self-awareness.
Look all around you, it's full of dudes who fell in love with the girl of their dreams who they made up in their head and doesn't exist in real life and were satisfied.

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

Well, I do suppose so... Everyone else is suffering as well. I never realized.

Satou Haruo icon.png

I think it's a bit different than what you're going through, but anyway...
You've broken some new ground, so I guess you can write something nice now.

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

Yes, I am relieved.
I'll try writing while strongly wishing to be reincarnated into a beautiful woman's shoe, if reincarnation exists...

Weren't you looking at the lemon exactly the same as how you look at yourself in the mirror?

Hey, Sensei, isn't it enough already?

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

What might you be talking about?

It's about Shuusei-san.

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

So that's what this is about. Why are you trying to get between me and Shuusei?

Satomi Ton icon.png

T-that's because...

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

Did someone ask you to do so?

Satomi Ton icon.png

Kyouka-sensei saying something like that is outrageous! We are in the middle of serious events,
so what I want to say is that it's important for everyone to work together and get along in this library. *
Ton had a reputation as sociable personality, who had many friends and he knew many fellow authors. He would talk even with unknown people in parties if they seemed lonely, and he didn't particularly hate even ones like Kikuchi Kan, who he had three big literary disputes with.

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

Getting so worked up like that, you are now even more suspicious. *
At one point Kyouka's brother was poor and in dire need of money, but due to their strained relationship, he couldn't directly ask Kyouka. Instead, he went to ask Ton to go get money from his brother, but Kyouka was suspicious and refused to give Ton any money. Ton went back home with unfortunate news to Kyouka's brother, but the same evening got a surprise visit from Kyouka, who had changed his mind and gave the man some money, asking him to deliver it to his brother. Ton was also between Kyouka and Shuusei, at times asked by Shuusei to do some favors. However, Kyouka didn't want to be in touch with Shuusei towards the end of his life to the point Shuusei had asked Ton how he could get in touch and find peace with Kyouka, to which Ton answered that his last chance would be at Kyouka's deathbed some day, as he couldn't believe them to get along after so many years of negativity. Shuusei never got such a chance however, as Kyouka refused to let Shuusei see him die and respecting his teacher, Ton didn't inform Shuusei when the last hours were at hand. Their brief meeting at Kyouka's house after the man's death was bitter and Ton felt sorry for Shuusei.

Satomi Ton icon.png

Eh... I-is something wrong, Sensei?

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

Ah no, because you are making such a serious face... Fufu, I thought it was amusing.

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

I'm not angry at Shuusei anymore.

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

Yes. Since arriving here, my chances to talk with Shuusei have increased.
If things are about to get heated up, the Librarian will come between us.
There's nothing for you to worry about.

Satomi Ton icon.png

So does that mean you don't dislike Shuusei-san anymore!?

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

Well... We don't get along as always. But I think he's fine if he isn't too much in my sight.

Satomi Ton icon.png

I'm so glad... I've been always so worried about you two.

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

However, the way our relationship has been up to this point, I'm not particularly bothered by it.

Satomi Ton icon.png

Eh? Then, doesn't that mean nothing has changed...?

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

I'm fine with that. It's our duty to work the way as Kouyou-sensei wants us to work, after all. *
As it has been mentioned many times in other recollections and Kyouka's trivia, he was devoted to Kouyou to the point his relationship with Shuusei got strained, as Shuusei criticized Kouyou's ways of teaching. One example of their teacher's power is Kyouka couldn't get married until after Kouyou's death. However, he remained more or less loyal to Kouyou after the man's death and at times talked about him to Ton, who never had a chance to meet his teacher's mentor.
