For the first time, I read an ending that made honor to both characters.
Sad, yet not depressing.
Author\'s Response: :) And the delightful thing is, it's really exactly what happened -- I was totally stymied in the last battle with the wretched monster using Osmose every few rounds and healing everything except the second of Lu's and Yuna's doublecasts. I was very pleased when I finally hit on an elegant solution, and Auron and Lu working together won the battle and saved the world. There was even an odd poetry in the fact that the last blow Sir Auron ever struck was...not to strike.That was MY story!
