Done during July 2009. Alas I ran out of time, stamina, and brain power at the end (poor Ness, you'll never forgive me will you?) but nevertheless July 27th reared its head and whether I felt satisfied with it or not (the later was certainly the case), that day was the 20th anniversary of Mother.
Originally, I only posted this on Pixiv. I thought I would go back and fix up stuff, but no time.
I also sent this off to Itoi, expressing my gratitude for such a simple, yet heart rending story that made me cry countless times. If you haven't played Mother 3, stop reading this and go play it right now!
誠に感謝しておりますので, もう一度お礼を申し上げます。アリガトウ------MOTHER! >___<
Edit: HOOMMMGMGGGGSFJSF Thank you so much for the DD! So not worthy of such an honor but I am beyond grateful!
