I’ve talked several times about how there are certain scenes that I’ve had in my mind for a long time … some of them have been around in my head as setpieces basically before anything else. And I can’t really put into words how cool it is that the story finally got there :)

One of these moments was a long while ago, Katharina standing in the jungle over a poisoned Shara, having to decide wether to help her despite risking her own life.

This one, Shara gripping the Traitor’s Blade amidst all the chaos like it was always meant to happen, is another one. There might now be much more happening in this page, but I’ve tried to give the following events the space they deserve. I hope you’ll enjoy them!
