By the way: best FQ issue yet i.m.o. The story was so well paced, the conversations between mender/dart and pike/shenshen were fantastically done. If anybody is hesitant about this shenshen going human twist being too farfetched, wait until you read the bits with Pike. It works. It fits. It's handled extremely well. I was hoping that the story and the characters would get more room to breathe now that the whole battle and chase bit was done with and it's indeed the case. There was lots of emotion, from full on (poor Leetah, so much pressure) to subtle. Like how the big issue of the way v.s. the palace was acted out (in all the comments on who prefers to live where, for instance), instead of driven home in the dialogue like last issue. Bottom line, this issue has serious depth, it has all the feels. I'm well impressed! 10 out of 10!
