[fic] Ienai

Title: Ienai
Author: joudama
Fandom: Metal Gear Solid
Rating: PG
Word count: 900-ish
Summary: For you, some things cannot be spoken; cannot be healed.
Song Prompt: Birdcage - Gackt
A/N: Written for fictunes.
The title, "Ienai," is Japanese, and I picked it for three reasons:

1. Otacon (Hal Emmerich) is a giant anime otaku; you know that man knows Japanese.
2. The line in "Birdcage" I genked the title from is 「悲しみは癒えない」 [kanashimi wa ienai]--"my loneliness can't be healed."
3. In Japanese, the words for "can't be healed," 「癒えない」, and "can't be spoken," 「言えない」, are homonyms--the kanji are different, but they're pronounced the same, "ienai."

This takes place after MGS2 and assumes you know Otacon's terrible, awful backstory. ;_; If not, here, take a moment to watch this clip and feel your heart getting pulled out and stomped on. "E.E" is Emma Emmerich, Otacon's step-sister. Until the clip, he hadn't seen her since she was six. And that dumb bird was hers.
