Puella Magi Madoka Magica LOVE! Sayaka & Kyouko Version
In the last episode of the TV series, when Sayaka disappeared due to the Law of Cycles, I was happy to hear Kyouko say "And we finally became friends, too...". In her last scene (in the concert hall), though, she didn't mention Kyouko.
Even in the pre-Law-of-Cycles timelines, when Sayaka became Oktavia, she identified Madoka as her "most important friend" just before becoming a witch.
There's something powerful about the image of Kyouko and Sayaka as a duo, but in the TV series, I don't think the strength of Sayaka's feelings for Kyouko and vice versa were well-balanced. Kyouko felt very strongly about Sayaka, since Sayaka reminded her of herself when she was younger. Sayaka, on the other hand, just saw Kyouko as "another person who wished for someone else's happiness". (Of course, that was why, in the very end, it was Kyouko to whom Sayaka spoke about how she really felt at the very end.)
And now, The Rebellion Story!! When I heard the two of them talking towards the end, it made me think. This version of Sayaka was aware of post-Oktavia Kyouko. She was aware of how much Kyouko suffered trying to bring her back; of how Kyouko died with her in the end! Wow! Of course, I'm just one fan, and that's just what I got out of the movie, so I can't say I know what Mr. Urobuchi thought about it [laughter], but I was just thinking that she, like Madoka, knew what Kyouko did back then, since she's part of the Law of Cycles, too. This time around, it was Kyouko that said "I had a horrible dream", and it was she that didn't quite remember what had happened. That works, too...
Oh, it looks like I've written a lot here. Now, a message for Kyouko and Sayaka: "Be friends with one another forever! Stay on good terms!!!"... come on, that was just one line! [laughter]
I love Kyouko and Sayaka as a duo! -Aoki Ume

You don't let emotions influence you. You're a coolheaded Homura! Unlike Kyouko, you aren't one for empathy. You rarely fail, and you have no serious regrets. You're a systematic thinker, and you might have what it takes to bring about change. You're a bit too cold, though. Beware that you don't make too many enemies.
Kyoukoness: 2/5 (30%)
You're good at analyzing things and getting the results you want. You're utilitarian Kyouko! You're a realist. You never hesitate to make a decision. It's not that you hate people, though - so you should try to be a bit more straightforward about expressing how you feel. You might be on your way to understanding that human relationships might be more important than mere utility.
Kyoukoness: 3/5 (50%)
You can deal with any people and any situation. You're sociable Kyouko! You're good at dealing with people, and you have a childish side to you. People love you so much that you have trouble finding any enemies. You're full of energy, but you have a hair trigger. When things go wrong, stay calm and give yourself time to heal.
Kyoukoness: 4/5 (80%)
You're proactive, coolheaded, decisive, and successful. You're brainy Kyouko! You're physically active and have some fancy footwork. You come off as cool even before you do anything. You can achieve success in even the greatest matters, making few errors along the way. You're easily swayed by others, however, so do take care that you don't let others influence you too much.

You're brimming with friendship, and people can count on you. You're big sister Kyouko! You act like a lone wolf, but you really do love people. Once you've made a friend, you'll never abandon them. You tend to act on instinct, and so you do often regret what you've done. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though.
- pandering much?
