I agree, this is probably the best post I have read from you Thraundil. You squeezed so much in the few paragraphs, hatred and loathing and anger and desperation and maybe even a want for a good word if not care or love. Great work, really.
You and Searinox are putting me in a difficult situation, you know. It would be very nice if someone recognized you based on your latest posts but how to arrange this to let it appear at least somewhat plausible?
Searinox, your posts are nice as well. Perhaps you have not written something of extraordinary style lately (though I feel this is very difficult in a fighting scene - my combat posts are not world class, either) but, well, the hatted man was originally supposed to be such a skilled duelist that he would beat any single enemy to a bloody pulp in no time. According to my notes, even Searinox plus Analya combined should for example not suffice to defeat him. But you keep coming with such good ideas that I just cannot let the human go to the offensive. So that is an accomplishment, too.
