ThIS ENTIRE WORLD IS JUST FAI BEING AMAZING, ISN’T IT? 

It’s actually very refreshing though. After two worlds of being under cover and needing to constantly lie about identities and be on guard it’s really nice to be in a world where everything is just back in the natural state of things. In which the characters can just be themselves and annoy Kurogane to their heart’s content. 

MEANWHILE SAKURA IS ABOUT TO FALL ASLEEP AGAIN AND MOKONA JUST, PULLS OUT A PILLOW, READY FOR HER TO FALL ON. 

MOKONA I CAN’T WITH YOU, YOU ARE TOO PRECIOUS. 

And we also have Syaoran’s Adventure Archaeologist skills proving just as useful all over again, And Kurogane is just. Too on guard, for one, but on the other hand he’s a ninja, so I think he has a point. If someone was watching them I think he would be the first to suspect it. Kurogane do the thing where you just close your eyes and know things again. It’s always helpful. 

YUP THERE WE GO. SWEETHEART MOKONA’S PLAN WORKED AND SAKURA SAFELY LANDED ON THE PILLOW. 

But also feather alert. 

In which Syaoran briefly transitions into serious mode before something happens off screen and interrupts them. 

And it’s….

holy shit. 

…What the hell is that. 

NINJA KUROGANE CASUALLY SNATCHING PEOPLE OUT OF TURBULENT WATER WITH NO EFFORT TAKEN. 

Meanwhile Fai contributes by demonstrating his fake whistling, because Kurogane is currently occupied and won’t be able to hit him this time. 

Because logic. 

Poor Enjolras though. He can’t help it. He asks about Kyle. 

Kyle is worse than a monster and absolutely deserves to die a thousand times over but Enjolras still has to ask. 

Even though he knows the probable answer. 

Even though it hurts him to hear it out loud. 

But my favourite thing is that the world itself seems intent on ENSURING Kyle’s death. Just as the characters ask if, you know, there’s anyway he might not have actually died THE ENTIRE BLOODY CASTLE IMPLODES. ALL AT ONCE.

  JUST TO MAKE SURE. 

so yes he is very very dead the absolute deadest there is an entire castle on top of him he couldn’t be deader

OKAY BUT. 

Fai patiently waits for the entire castle to collapse before finishing his sentence. And castles do not collapse quickly.It’s just a single frame here, but it would have been a very long amount of seconds between one word and the next. But this is Fai, and he had begun to say something before the castle interrupted him so he just stands there, waiting, for minutes, until it quietens down. And the first chance he gets he just opens his mouth and finishes the setence as if nothing had happened BECAUSE NOW IT’S EVEN MORE DRAMATIC THAN IT WAS BEFORE AND ARE YOU KIDDING THERE IS NO WAY FAI WOULD PASS UP THIS CHANCE ARE YOU KIDDING ME. 

Also I belatedly realise I forgot to add in the little exchange between Fai and Syaoran in the upper left, but the book I have translates it as:

Fai: They’re fine. 

Syaoran: The books?

Which… is probably supposed to be the other way around, really, but Syaoran immediately asking if the history book survived. 

Syaoran you are a total nerd 

10/10 Please continue

AND EMERAUDE

STILL LOOKING AFTER THE CHILDREN

AND ALSO SAKURA

AND THEN GIVING HER THE FEATHER

AND THEN LEAVING HER WITH THAT. 

PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I THINK IT MEANS. 

They probably have no way to figure it out right now BUT STILL
