So, after several chapters of fighting, it seems that talking was the strategy that ultimately paid off…for now.

The phoenix isn’t quite as bad as he wants them to think, and he’s starting to realize what a losing battle this is…doesn’t make up for what he did, but it’s a start.

This chapter’s not quite over yet, and we’re not entirely done with this point, but this story arc (while tons of fun to do) has been running for quite a long time, and we needed to advance.

Thanks for reading! See you next week!
