Content warning: The rest of this storyline deals with Yumiko’s traumatic childhood and dissociative identity disorder. (It also contains some screwed-up religious beliefs, but of course that kind of comes standard.) Timothy (thinking): Or maybe Heinkel’s just in there to talk with Yumiko. She couldn’t pass in the men’s room, after all. Wait…They’re alone together,… Continue reading All Heaven Broke Loose 2/21

Heinkel: Yumiko…this fight we’re about to enter…It’s the big one. So, since we might not make it back, there’s something I have to tell you… Yumiko: Yes?…Heinkel? Heinkel: …I’ve been lying to you.

Heinkel: You understand how you came to have Yumie…? Yumiko: I don’t remember it, but… When I was small, I was…hurt. Very badly. I felt so helpless…so cut off from my Lord… …that I created my own savior.

Yumiko: Like Eve from Adam’s rib, Yumie was born from me. It was a sin… I presumed to imitate creation, to set myself up as my own God. And she came out so broken that only Section XIII could find a way to use her for good. That’s why we’re called the Iscariot Organization. This… Continue reading All Heaven Broke Loose 5/21

Heinkel: You feel guilty because of what Yumie does. Because we tell you it’s all your fault. We came up with this tidy little story… Yumiko, what you did, how you split…it isn’t a sin. It’s not even a conscious process. And it certainly didn’t happen that neatly. For one thing, Yumie isn’t your only… Continue reading All Heaven Broke Loose 6/21

Yumiko: I have t-ten people inside of me? B-but why is Yumie the only one who comes out? Heinkel: Because that’s how we conditioned you. Every personality that Iscariot can’t use has been suppressed. Yumie’s a berserker without morals. She’s a perfect assassin. But we don’t have the resources to supervise her all the time… Continue reading All Heaven Broke Loose 7/21

Heinkel: Your other personalities have been suppressed, but not erased. Like Yumie, they can be released. Not by removing your glasses, but by certain code phrases. I know your codes. Yumiko: H-how long have you known? Heinkel: Since I was first partnered with you. Yumiko: But — why would you–? Heinkel: Because I wanted you… Continue reading All Heaven Broke Loose 8/21

Heinkel: When you’ve been hurt badly enough to become a multiple, you can’t heal easily. What you need is years of professional help, in a safe environment, with support and love to get you through the pain. I can’t guarantee you any of that. Your soul may be split and partly locked up, but at… Continue reading All Heaven Broke Loose 9/21

Yumiko (thinking): there’s a whole crowd inside of me. I don’t even know what they’re like. But we’re all parts of the same soul. And I’m the part that has to make this decision. All because Iscariot thinks I’m too meek to make strong-willed decisions in the first place… Yumiko: Heinkel…d-do it. Set them all… Continue reading All Heaven Broke Loose 10/21
