Wow. The atmosphere in this one is marvellous, and I love your playing with the sun and moon with the sunny islanders of Besaid and Lulu's nightlike appearance. The omen of the breaking necklace is very well done, Lulu's understanding and sympathy with a girl she hasn't yet met due to their shared loss is a wonderful insight, and the whole scene with Chappu is just wonderful.
You were very brave to describe the true horror of Auron seeing Braska ripped apart. How can a man go on after seeing that, touching it? It's wonderfully heartwrenching.
The idea that the talisman helps hold him to his body is very touching.
I love this chapter! I'm so glad you've continued again.
