All through autumn we hear a double voice: one says everything is ripe; the other says everything is dying. The paradox is exquisite. We feel what the Japanese call 'aware'---an almost untranslatable word meaning something like 'beauty tinged with sadness.'
Gretel Ehrlich, from The Solace of Open Spaces (Penguin, 1986)

do you ever cry so hard in the shower and wonder whether the water falling down your cheek is water or tears

Extremely sad and odd question: How do you think Naegiri would handle each other's death from old age?
Of course it would be devastating for either of them when it happened. I can imagine Naegi would be much more open with his grief. He’d be unafraid to let it show publicly. Meanwhile, Kirigiri would try to keep it as private as she could, only openly crying when alone or with someone she considers very close (Hina perhaps). She'd lose her smile for a while.
And yet... living to be with someone until they pass of old age is a blessing. It’s truly lucky to be able to see someone through to their life’s conclusion without losing them to some disease or some accident or a million other things that could happen. And especially given the life-threatening dangers they both faced on multiple occasions, I think they’d realize that they were blessed to be together for so long and find solace in that.
I can picture either one of them looking out a window at night, a tear rolling down their cheek as they stand there, feeling alone... and yet, they smile. Because they’d understand that they were lucky to find their partner, lucky to share their lives into old age - and lucky to feel like that partner is waiting for them somewhere.
And of course, the survivor would find solace in the friends and family they still have. Any children they had, plus people like Komaru and Asahina would be there to support them. I imagine their kids would be especially ready to take care of the surviving parent who has to endure.
I bet Naegi would still talk to her sometimes, behaving as if she could definitely hear him. Kyoko would solemnly visit his grave when his birthday rolled around, but Makoto would do that same visit each October while attempting to smile. He’d want to celebrate her life as much as he could on those days.
Complicating matters further would be the fact that they’re celebrities now. Heroes to a plurality of people. Decades would’ve passed since the Tragedy, and maybe only the people who were alive at the time would really remember the School Killing Game so vividly, but nobody would be unaware that these people were the reason Junko Enoshima was ultimately defeated and killed. Kyoko would be a little indignant about the notion that “the world” was mourning Naegi; that’s her personal loss. These people talking about him on TV? They never really knew him. But I feel like Makoto would be more understanding that the world looked up to Kyoko, even if he would feel and experience the loss in a much more personal way.

I'm jealous of those who can function like a normal human being. They don’t have anxiety holding them back from everything, they don’t struggle to get out of bed or have to put on an act that everything is fine when its not. They don’t struggle to hold friendships and relationships... they don’t feel sad for no fucking reason everyday. Those that can hold jobs and work towards their dreams, the ones who have self esteem and see the beauty in themselves. Those that know what its like to feel safe and secure, not insecure and fearful of it all.

I tell you writing about sadness is easy. Joy comes in explosions. I learn something new every day to break the line between repetition.
Laura Villareal, from “What Regenerates in a Household,” The American Poetry Review (vol. 50, no. 6, November/December 2021)

What I want is a respite from suffering, for I endure a thousand deaths every moment. I ask for life—
