(adapted) Kagen no Tsuki aka Last Quarter

I can get inspirations for my writings from many things, like doramas, songs, mangas, or by what’s happening in people daily life. And one of the writings I’ve been working on now is adapted from Kagen no Tsuki (Last Quarter) movie, though I can say it’s quite different story.

The Original plot:
Mizuki Mochizuki is a high school student that one day meets a man by the name Adam. In the two weeks they are together, she falls in love with him, and the day he is to leave, she decides to follow him. Bringing her passport and a bag, she crosses one of Shibuya's many streets, on a red light, to follow after him. Only, when her ex-boyfriend calls out her name, she turns around, in the middle of the street, to see him running after her. While standing there, she is hit by a car.

Some time later, a girl named Hotaru, who has lost her cat, mistakes a stray as her own. The cat wanders into an abandoned home, and she squeezes through the bars to follow after the cat. When realizing that the cat isn't hers, she decides to leave, but is drawn in by a beautiful melody. She makes her way to where the sound is coming from, and discovers a girl playing a piano. After telling her friends about the girl, they all leave to check out the scene. When they go there, they cannot see the girl, but knows she is real when Hotaru hands her a notebook, and she takes it from Hotaru's hands. They have no idea who this girl is, but they are determined to find out just who she is and why she is there. The rest of the story follows their discoveries of the ghost they call Eve. (Wikipedia)

My Adapted plot:
Michiru Keio often had the same nightmares over and over. In the nightmares, Michiru was sitting among dead bodies, she was frighten but also feel calm in the same time with the presence of someone in front of her. Michiru has told her nightmares to her brother, Tezuka, but doesn’t get satisfying explanation. Besides having the same nightmare, Michiru seem couldn’t remember about the death of her parents. Tezuka told her it’s because the shocked of their parents sudden death.

One day, with her friends, Michiru visit the area where people without magical power have live. For avoiding trouble, people with magical power are forbidden to enter the area, but for curiosity they still go and later found out by the people there. Michiru get separated and arrive at the watch tower where the watcher for both area has live. Michiru was shocked when she hear the voice of the keeper, Riki Okada, that similar with the voice inside her nightmares. It’s the same soft and gentle voice telling that she has to live a happy life. Later on, Michiru found out that Riki was Tezuka’s best friend, but again Michiru doesn’t remember anything about him.

Michiru is curious about Riki’s identity and what sins he has done so he becomes the keeper. She also wants to know why she had the nightmares, why she can hear Riki’s voice in her nightmares, and furthermore why she can’t remember about her parents death.

p.s. It’s really two different stories. I like the plot about “couldn't remember someone” in Last Quarter that I adapt into my writings. I also like Hyde appearances as Adam that I imagine Adam as Riki :P One thing I don’t like from Last Quarter is the ending. So, on my adapted writings, I make it into a happy ending version :)

(Hyde as Adam that I take the image for the keeper, Riki)
