But yeah, there's a difference. I might not have expressed it well, but the way I see it, her rejuvenation was just a regeneration that made her body cleansed of impurities and built stronger than it was before, but without any major changes. Like a supernatural fitness and beauty program. De-aging into a prepubescent state, on the other hand, would require a massive change in the character's anatomy, in a direction that bodies just don't develop into, so it seems a lot less natural.
It also makes the whole factor of being unable to grow further seem even more gratuitous than it already is. I'd much prefer to think that there's a reason why they have to be children.
It's not supposed
to seem natural. Vampires are supernatural creatures. Love usually doesn't develop into giant death rays, so are you going to argue that Master Spark doesn't seem natural? Master Spark is magic. Vampires are magic. Neither of them are limited by the usual rules of biology and physics.
Furthermore, there is
a reason why they have to be children, and it's explicitly spelled out in Remilia's profile in Imperishable Night: that's the source of her immortality. "Creatures of her kind forfeit their growth and maturity in exchange for eternal life. In other words, she can live forever because she never grows up."
Well, it's not for me to decide. Though I find it very sad that a lot of very creative minds around here don't seem to be contributing any write-ups because their standards are so high. You wouldn't be the only one.
I only create true art
, like photoshops of Australian Nazrin.
