[FF7][无授翻]萨云关系小论文

注:原文没有题目,是dustofwarfare的作品lay up the boards(Begin the End系列第四部分)下方来自TheMadCatQueen69的一篇评论。个人感觉说得鞭辟入里,故作为笔记保存下来。
文首的“你”是指dust太太,其中简单涉及到一点同人作中的情节,但不影响单独阅读。

评论原文附在最后。

————以下译文————

坦诚来讲,你在这篇作品中指出了一件许多粉丝,包括我个人都希望否认的,贯通FF7全系列最简单的事实:
那就是哪怕杰内西斯和安吉尔留下了,哪怕扎克斯做了一再的努力,甚至,哪怕核心危机中的一切不曾发生,萨菲罗斯依然会选择杰诺瓦。

因为就像克劳德所陈述的那样,她道出了他最想听到的东西。并且这一点以最极端、最残酷的方式,成为了萨菲罗斯的人性最真实的证据。
“杰内西斯、安吉尔或者扎克斯原本是可以挽救他的”,这样的想法无疑很是美好。把责任怪罪在他们身上,或者怪罪在宝条的暗中操纵上,显然简单得多。
然而实际上,正是萨菲罗斯自身的弱点将他径直引向了杰诺瓦的陷阱。
他渴望一位母亲,他渴望证明自己不仅仅是宝条的一件实验品,他那么愤怒地想要报复这个将他栓锁住的世界。尽管萨菲罗斯曾经真的是个好人,但他也的确拥有人性弱点,完全可能会堕落。

这也刚好解释了为什么他与克劳德互补。
克劳德在很大程度上有和萨菲罗斯一样的遭遇——虽然讽刺的是,这大部分是萨菲罗斯自己一手造成的。
但到最后,克劳德并没有选择那些虚妄的幻景。哪怕是在他最脆弱的时候,他也做出了和萨菲罗斯截然不同的选择。
你可以说那是因为蒂法拉了他一把,可是尼布尔海姆事件时扎克斯同样在场,萨菲罗斯仍然选择了杰诺瓦。
他们之间这种相似,同时还有根本上的相异,让克劳德和萨菲罗斯能站在最深层次的角度理解彼此,这种深度是超过他们对其他任何人的。
这也同样让他们成为势均力敌的一对,让他们互补,让他们以一种完全不可替代的方式属于彼此。

有的人因为爱而结合,有的为平凡,有的为欲望,有的为生死与共。而有的则因为恨意。
到头来,爱所对应的真正彼端并不是恨,而是漠不关心。爱与恨本就是硬币的两面。



Honestly, right here, you touched on one of the simplest truths in the whole series that a lot of fans, including myself, like to deny- Sephiroth, even if Genesis and Angeal had remained, even if Zack had tried again, even if none of the events of Crisis Core in the slightest had ever happened, Sephiroth would have chosen Jenova. Because it's just like Cloud puts it, because she said what he wanted to hear. And that is, in the bitterest, cruelest way possible, the truest evidence of Sephiroth's humanity.

Really, it's so much nicer to think that Genesis or Angeal or Zack could have saved him, it's so much easier to blame it on them or Hojo's manipulations at the time. But in truth, it was Sephiroth's weaknesses that led him straight into Jenova's trap. He wanted a mother, he wanted to believe himself better than just a test subject for Hojo, he wanted revenge against a world that bitterly and cruelly chained him constantly- for all that the true Sephiroth was a good man, he had human weaknesses and was fallable, utterly so.
That's precisely why he and Cloud complete each other. Cloud is someone who in many ways experienced the same things as Sephiroth did in his life- ironically enough, many of them perpetrated by Sephiroth himself. But in the end, Cloud did not choose the illusion of grandeur. At the moment where he was at his weakest, he made a completely different choice then Sephiroth. You can say it's because Tifa was there, but Zack was there for Sephiroth in Nibelheim and Sephiroth still chose Jenova. This similarity and yet innate difference between them make Cloud and Sephiroth people who understand each other at an innate level, higher then they understand any other. And it also makes them a balanced pair, makes them complete each other, makes them belong to each other in a way that is insanely hard to replicate. Some couples bond through love, some through peace, some through desire, some through comradery and hardship. And some bond through hatred.
In the end, the opposite of love is never hatred, but indifference. Hatred and love are merely two sides of the same coin.
