Fault - Milestone One - 4 hours in

Maybe another couple hours to go. The story's finally gotten back to the villain that started this whole thing off.


The stuff with Rune made me cry, even though it didn't have quite the depth I'd have liked. For one thing, I'm not sure why Rune had to leave immediately after the reconciliation scene. I mean, I can think of one good reason, but none of the characters ever brought it up, or even hinted at it. For another, holy crap these characters. How do you hurt each other that much and then, after just a few sappy lines, some crying, and some hugging, go on like everything's been fixed?


ETA - I said I maybe had a couple more hours to go. Turns out it was only a few minutes. Whee, enormous cliffhanger. O_O
