      Is the story on this really a mystery or up for debate? It's 2B and her reminder that 9S will love her every lifetime but that she still is afraid that he wont. It's like meeting a new person and you don't want to be the first one to fall in love, except it's happened so many times and she's still nervous about it... probably because each time she accepts it she knows what comes next. How could anyone possibly get 21O out of this?

        it is hard for me to think that this weapon refers to either 2B or 21O, mainly because of the level 2 line, 9S feelings weren't a mystery, and he is quite open and chatty, i do though grant that Virtuous Treaty's story can resemble 9S's feelings for 2B

          i think this is the large sword that was used by 9s in the barren temple, referring to it as "9s long sword" in the novella memory cage
