Finally leaving this interminable (to me) battle behind, though not with any hope for better things for the moment...
(Unless you are familiar with the source material, in which case I will admit that in the next chapter resides my entire raison d'etre.)
I have in no way read the source material and did not in ANY WAY see this coming!
I hate fight scenes as well. And this was a LONG one.
Yay! I keep reminding myself that there are people following who HAVEN'T read the books (which for whatever reason sort of amazes me) and trying not to say anything spoilery.
*rubs hands together* Oh man, I can't wait!
It's going to be good. You should see the next two pages in the queue. I seriously am having trouble NOT uploading them ahead of time.
Half of me is screaming, "Gwydion! No!" but the other half is rubbing its hands and whispering, "Just one step closer to Eilonwy..."
I am so stoked to get to her. But I'm also really going to enjoy the scene with Achren. Not going to rush through that!
Ye gods, I love that last panel. Just the force of that rain coming down, all to one point. And Melyngar bowing her head. And the little raindrop ripples!
:) God is in the details.
