Aww, I finally get my hug, and it’s this. Chibs managing to pick herself up and stop Hotaru from swinging her Glaive completely.
And damn, let’s appreciate the power backlash we got from the PARTIAL attack.
How did Chbis know? I wonder if they talked about what Hotaru could do now, after she returned. Because I completely believe they had a three-day slumber party after that reveal.
"I can make a wall now!"
"That’s awesome! And so useful!"
"And I can kill a bad guy in one shot!"
"WOW HOTARU-CHAN YOU ARE SO AWESOME!"
"It …. kills me though."
"……….oh. Maybe don’t do that then."
"Yeah, that’s what I was thinking."
But I love Chibs found a way to get over to Hotaru. You can hear how weak she is, she’s barely hanging on. Even with all the attack happening, as scary as all that was, she found a way to get up bodily stop Hotaru.
And this could save her. All that pain and fear, the never having existed at all, Hotaru could end all that, but the price is too high.
Chibs knows. She’s already lost Hotaru before.
