The distortion that the time Shaoran rewound caused to be born was Watanuki!! Yuuko's words spin tragedy!

Isn't it that if he didn't exist, his parents would not have died? 
That thought and that regret is coming back to Watanuki as a body that attracts spirits.
And when the true Shaoran took the copy Shaoran's bet that he would lose his life,
Watanuki, unconsciously, tried to protect the true Shaoran by erasing his own life.
That was the cause of his fall from the school building.

"I don't want Watanuki to disappear." Those who wish that are not just Maru and Moro.
Reacting to the feelings of those many people he has met until now,
Watanuki himself has changed enough to wish that "I want to be here."
Yuuko: "If that wish is strong enough, together with that child, the future will change too."

Now Watanuki being alone is what he himself has chosen.
If Shaoran is alone, he should be alone too.
But that memory was taken as a price, and does not remain.
As long as even a few memories remain, FWR's curse remains also.
In other words, all of his memories are not limited to true ones.
The feeling his parents entrusted to a false name. Without fail, it will go to meet you.


Sad, fleeting, and also full of unconscious courage: Watanuki's existence. Without fail, it will go to meet you, your parents' feeling, the truth!!
With your friends' feelings, the future will change. With everyone, certainly, you can be there!! Wait for next time!!

Thanks for the spoilers ^^

I gotta say some parts are pretty vague and hard to understand. But the general feeling is that everyone wishes for a better future; Watanuki, through meeting people, changed and so did his wish. Though I wonder who Maru and Moro are: I thought they were just soulless artificial existence created by Yuuko, fixed to the shop and maintaining it...but they wish for Watanuki to be there too? Did they wished for it before or after meeting with Watanuki?

Still, won't we get a better 'past'...? I guess everything is just too late and even erasing the distortion won't change what already happened...

CCS|SxS are just plain gone forever.

I will follow both TRC and HOlic till the very end, as I've been doing for 5 years now but, really, one part of me died with SxS.

Nothing is final just yet. I'm remembering this one incident where Ashura-ou and Yasha-ou had their futures changed.

I don't know if CLAMP themselves might have thought to follow this through but think about it this way: Right now, the TRC gang are at the place of the frozen time. To save Sakura and stop FWR they'd need to fix that distortion. Assuming that the distortion is everything after Shaoran Jr. was imprisoned and then it disappeared, his parents would still be alive.

Of course, I'm still hoping they are alright somehow ^___^ In spite of my complains, internally I still didn't give up on them just yet: Clamp can be very traitorous and cunning sometimes, they make us believe whatever they want to, afterward, completely change
Still, what is making me so down is that it won't be the first time they would have killed 'important' characters in their mangas...criteria like 'they are their most popular couple' or 'it's thanks to CCS that their fame jumped to the top worldwide' or 'they said they would be happily together forever and could live hundreds of years if they wished to' or stuff like that would have been good enough for others mangakas, but knowing Clamp, they REALLY might just kill them off.

As for your suggestion: you have to consider that the Time was rewound only in Clow Country, to go back to a moment prior to the one the princess was cursed. The flow of Time wasn't disturbed in CCS|Holic, only the existence of Watanuki/disappearance of 'Syaoran' troubled everything and changed the future that should have been.

I also think that the general idea is that the distortion shall come to an end, and Watanuki BEING that distortion+wishing to disappear, he 'should' vanish together with it. All the efforts Yuuko/'Syaoran' had been doing was for him to keep on hanging on to life, even with the distortion gone.

About SxS, again, I'm not giving up on them because I find it weird that Clow Reed and Yuuko would wish for a future built on their *bloody* sacrifice. Still, Clamp made it a point since chapter1 that 'the parents' were dead and that 'reviving the dead' is impossible, it's troubling...

That's a good point about bringing the dead back to life (which is a big no-no, indeed). But they technically would never have died...

I have to agree that there does seem to be a possibility that S&S might be resurrected (though of course they technically would never have died in the first place) if the distortion in time is ironed out. I'm not sure how I'd feel about this intellectually, but most deaths in CLAMP are wrung for maximum emotional pathos by depicting them graphically and at length, which of course has not happened here. Also Yuuko said she hadn't met Sakura "yet." So I'm rating this somewhat less than total despair. Maybe even cautious hope.

I appreciate that Watanuki's story is going the exact opposite of it seems every other scifi/fantasy i've see lately.

The idea that martyrdom is not really an ideal solution, unless you're a writer that want to hit the reset button.

I *wondered* if the memory thing was going to be like Clone Sakura. Yuuko never does anything that isn't completely in their best interest, but seems to delight in appearing selfish. I think she's got some self-esteem issues of her own.

So it WASN'T Himawari's fault? He fell on purpose?! What the hell?! Everybody was saying that the way he fell was wonky but I never guessed... Oh god I just had a thought. What if WATANUKI is the reason for Himawari's bad luck? T_T On another matter, how would Watanuki sacrificing his life for Shaoran Jr. protect him? Something like a shadow double in X maybe?

Without fail, it will go to meet you. <-By the way what does this mean?

"It" is his parents' feeling (grammatically). I'm assuming "you" is addressed to Watanuki, but there's no way to tell beyond context.

She clearly thought it was her fault, and it was by no means an unreasonable assumption. I don't think, though, that Watanuki is causing Himawari's issue; she's just got bad karma imo.
