It seems like Annie had been saving that one up for a while.

FOR THE RECORD: THE ROBOTS BEING REALLY GOOD WITH SHIELDS AND FORCE FIELDS IS EXTREMELY DRAGONBALL.

"So hey guys, sorry I tried to destroy your city and kill all of you a few minutes ago, I'm just going through some personal stuff, what with suddenly ascending to Godhood and all, you know how it is."

"Oh, you don't know how it is?"

"Uh, do you have any gods I could talk to?"

"No, Kat doesn't count."

Re: the second-to-last page: I wonder if Coyote got more than he bargained for and is trying to plot out an escape plan.

Well, as much as someone who got vored by a dog can plot things out, anyway.

Threads that paid off: Jeanne, Coyote and Ysengrin, Jones

Open threads: Angel Kat, Reynard, Anthony and the Fire-Hair Girl

I get the feeling we just started the story's last act.

I don't think Zimmy and Gamma are necessarily Plot threads that demand some sort of conclusion.

They just sort of... are. They existed as they do before the story started, and they'll most likely continue to do so after the story ends. As far as they're concerned, Annie, Kat & Company are just an annoyance they occasionally have to deal with.

Jack Hyland is probably much more on their personal Radar than any other main character, but even he's reached a point where he's actively trying to deal with what he went through as best he can by acknowledging that Zimmy does not return his feelings, keeping his distance, and starting a relationship with someone who understands his unique experiences, and acts as a support structure.

It would be cool if we got some more Stories dealing with Zimmy & Gamma, or caught up with Jack sometime just to see if he can still see into the ether and fly and stuff, but I don't really think they NEED a hard resolution like Jeanne's. They have shit to deal with, and they're dealing with it.

You're a bolder man than I. Stories like this tend to grow in the telling and I wouldn't be shocked to hell if something that seems like it should take one chapter ends up taking three.

So how messed up will Annie be if she has to mercy kill her Ysendad? That's my take on this whole situation and where it could be heading.

Tony in his madness and grief nearly kills his daughter in vain attempt to bring wifey back?

E: Or the whole "murder-ghost under bridge" whose soul was imprisoned there to guard the Court for all of time simply because she fell in love with the wrong guy thing.

Also anything to do with the robots, which is more subtext than text, but still a thing.
